Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra 21 and Worldwide Nakshatra Course
Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra is one of the wonderful 27 Nakshatras:
The Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology. Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra spans: 26°40′ Sagittarius to 10°00′ Capricorn (Dhanus to Makara),
Uttara Ashadha Nakshatra is quite an uncompromising energy. It’s Ruler is The Sun – power, vitality, strength, leadership; its ruling deity are The Vishwadevas – The Universal Gods.
Uttara Ashadha’s symbol: Planks of a bed – not so good for marriage, not so comfortable, but a place to rest.
The Power animal/yoni: Mongoose – viciousness, speed.
Uttara Ashadha’s Motivation is Moksha – spiritual liberation. Its Caste is: Kshatriya, Warrior. Its nature is to be sharp and dreadful in an active way.
Translation: Mongoose means ‘unchallenged victory’. the latter invincible one.
Stars: The Four stars of Uttara Ashadha are in Sagittarius.
UTTARA ASHADHA Key Words:
Enduring, invincible, aggressive. can storm its way forward. Dogged persistence to succeed. Responsible. A challenger with a forceful path, who can have luck in the nick of time. Can be a lonely enduring path. Much more introspective than that the preceding Nakshatra, the showy Purva Ashadha. More warrior than Brahmin. They can get totally involved in their task. Can penetrate deeply into knowledge. They have innate leadership qualities and usually affluence. They are Law-abiding and religious, genial. patient, righteous and responsible. Methodical, sincere and calculating.
Note that 5° Capricorn is the exact debilitation degree for Jupiter, so the light of knowledge can be obscured as the individual becomes obsessed with paying karmic debts.
Jupiter rules the Sagittarius part of Uttara Ashadha, but Saturn rules the Capricorn part. Jupiter is about expansion, but Saturn is about contraction – and Jupiter is at his greatest debilitation in the Capricorn part of Uttara Ashadha. There is an energy in the Saturn part especially, of moderation and practicality, and there may be not too much hope, idealism or expansiveness. It is maybe a place for endurance and concrete action rather than words. Yet there can be misplaced idealism. Every error someone with emphasis in Uttar Ashadha makes is amplified due to the enormous capacity of this nakshatra to be of influence in the outside world. The emphasis here can be on concrete achievement. Nerves of steel. Exaggerated attention to worldliness or to power structures. Accumulation.
Basically, Uttara Ashadhas can have innate great integrity, and can be sincere, committed, ambitious. They fight for what they believe is right and practise what they preach. They often make advisors. Uttara Ashadhas have great stamina and constancy. If they are not fully engaged in a project, they can get apathetic.
They can be pioneering. They can be noted for a fresh start, honest, great insight, ambitious, but sometimes can fail to carry through
Uttara Ashada Nakshatra shows how actions are always victorious over ideas. Sagittarius preceding can be lazy, and idealistic about something that is not good.
The ruling deities of Uttara Ashadha are the universal gods that guarantee victory. It is where Sagittarius becomes Capricorn where hopes and inspirations become tangible realities.
Negativley, Uttarashadhas can be rigid, unbending, upholding. Can get self-centred and stubborn. Can have losses in early life, but more success as their life progresses.
N.B. Love Scripts of Uttara Ashadha: This is the one of the 27 Lunar Signs or Nakshatras that has no natural mate, and thus is usually a very difficult life-script for marriage. Can have difficulties in marriage or sexual incompatibilities. The Uttara Ashadha symbol is the planks of a bed: an austere bed, not made for comfort. The hard bed reflects your austere attitude to relationships.
They like control so their partners can feel pushed out. Can go for material comfort and success, but not pleasure. They show stubborn, self-centred approach and can develop lack of interest in relationship.
Typically, Uttara Ashadhas can be composed and stoical. They tend to keep an emotional distance from others. They can have difficulty expressing warmth and love. Thay can have a difficult relationship with their father and this colours how they view love.
If Uttara Ashadhas are involved in something that bores or stresses them, they can become dull and lazy. There is a self-indulgent streak within them that defies your otherwise austere nature.
Uttara Ashadhas have complex Sexuality. The animal symbol of Uttara Ashadha is the mongoose. There is no female mongoose in the Nakshatra animal signs. For Uttara Ashadhas, therefore, there are no ideal partners. Often they have no instinctive understanding of your sexuality. To fulfil their spiritual path, they can have to learn to compromise on their sexuality.
Typically, to hide their lack of sexual confidence and low self-esteem, Uttara Ashadhas appear active and bold. If they fancy someone you make a play for them. You are fast workers and can get involved very quickly. But once they are involved, it can become very clear that they do not know what to do with their lovers. Not having an ideal mate in the Nakshatra system hinders Uttara Ashadha’s sexual knowledge. They can be passionate yet cold, self-indulgent yet ascetic. The right partner is one who accepts their intrinsic spirituality and makes them comfortable with their sexuality.
Uttara Ashadhas hate secrecy or deception so you set high standards for their partners and if they fail, can be very aggressive and will not wait till they have rooted out their dishonesty. They need to avoid becoming suspicious for the sake of it. And as they are plain-speaking and direct, they may not understand harmless wiles and sexual play from others. it can be that they can’t be bothered and choose to lead the life of an ascetic. In a woman’s chart, this person may opt for a practical marriage or marriage for money.
find their partners are too ascetic, boring or not much fun, especially if planet occupies pada 2 of Uttar Ashadha.
Favorable: Uttara Ashadha earns a good living; believes in charitable giving; brave; does well in foreign countries; good conversationalist; enjoys music and dance; good organizational abilities; ambitious, motivated to accomplish things and develop their careers; likes old and mysterious things; could be skilled in astrology
Unfavorable: Uttara Ashadha cane be self-seeking, aggressive; worried; capable of hurting others; makes up stories; deceptive in that they will either say what is not so, withhold information, or understate matters; don’t like to be told what to do; argumentative; too talkative; select mates who often are very different in personality and outlook
The symbol of Uttara Ashadha, a tooth, is a sharp thing and analogous to this Uttara Ashadha has a keen intellect, which enables him to see through the wrong ways of the ego. The elephant is an animal with a great, positive strength. A person in whose horoscope Uttara Ashadha plays an important role is challenged to use that strength.
Anuradha Nakshatra Number 17 in The Nakshatra System
Anuradha Nakshatra is the 17th Nakshatra in the wonderful, powerful and surely declarative 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of vedic astrology: The Nakshatras.
Anuradha Nakshatra spans 3°20 to 16°40 Vedic Scorpio
Anuradha Nakshatra people are faithful and devoted, but jealous and angry. They combine friendship with aloofness. They are good at putting people at their ease.
Anuradha’s ruler, Saturn, teaches them responsibility and restriction, endurance and facing pain. But Saturn’s rulership of Anuradha combines problematically with Mars’ rulership of Scorpio, and can make them passive, or alternatively erratically passive and rebellious.
These people are revolutionaries. Their original minds are melting pots for diverse knowledge and inspiration. They are very curious, including for foreign lands. They seek dharma and higher truths. They can have qualities of purity and auspiciousness. They can be very goal-orientated, and often align their goals smoothly to the universal plan. Determined, energetic, dominant. They have a strong appetite for life.
Here are some more perspectives into the Anuradha consciousness: These people are often balanced with understanding in friendships. They can be co-operative, loving, popular, inspiring, successful. They gain respect. They are fond of family life, groups and organisations. They can gain fame through their friendships. They can explore The Universe along with their friendships, communities and associates. They can be good leaders and organisers, very focused, suffering with smile, sharing, sensual, open. Can assume responsibility and get work done. They succeed by any means. They like likes variety and travel. Anuradhas has a low frustration tolerance. They are charismatic, hard-working and brave; usually tactful but secretive.
Actually they are often promiscuous. They can give over-secretion of sexual hormones or irregular menses.They can over-eat and need to watch their diet. Be careful: because Scorpio is a Fixed sign, they can be very controlling. Occult: They are often psychic and devoted to spiritual pursuits. Kundalini and Karmas: They frequently have kundalini experiences and can practice kundalini. This results in the nullification of old karmas.
They can be spies.
They can work with numerology and numbers.
They progress through controlled ambition.
But Anuradha’s behaviour can shade into selfish, violent, cruel and vindictive. Thye can be untruthful. Their external behaviour can be deceiving. Sadly, they fail to listen enough to others and to others’ feelings.
If you would like to learn more about Anuradha, and all the other 27 Nakshatras of the Vedic Lunar Zodiac, this is so worthwhile. It offers such understanding of people. it is the key to relationships astrology and health astrology and many other functions in birth chart analysis and prediction. Enrol on my Nakshatras Course and study each Nakshatra in depth in relation to your chart and mine, plus family members and others. Learn the powerful techniques of analysis using the Nakshatras.
I look forward to developing this more with you through one of my Worldwide Astrology readings, my Foundation Vedic Astrology Course or my Nakshatras Advanced Course. See the website addresses for these below:
Vishakha The Vehement Nakshatra 16 and worldwide Nakshatra Course
Vishakha Nakshatra spans 20°00′ Vedic Libra to 3°20′ Vedic Scorpio. It’s nature is triumphant and vehement, but when the Vishakha Nakshatra person has learned their life lessons, they can become the ethical stalwart who holds together families, groups and situations.
Vishakha Nakshatra planetary Ruler is: Jupiter, who offers purpose and divine guidance
The Ruling Deity or Devata is: Agni, the God of Fire and Indra, the King of Gods and god of War, storms and rainfall. The Divine energy of transformation.
Vishakha’s Symbol is: The Triumphant Arch.
And most appropriately, Vishakha’s Power Animal or Yoni is: The Male Tiger (would you mess with this one???)
The Principal Star is: Az Zubanan – the Claws of Scorpio.
Vishakha Nakshatra – Keywords:
The poisons of past lives can be stored here. They can be aggressive, dictatorial and utterly ruthless. Obsessional, introverted and secretive. Fixation and decisive dedication. Their obsessions can burn them up and harm those dear to them. They are quarrelsome with loads of suppressed anger and hurt, bitterness and resentfulness. They are very easily angered! Their eyes are always fixed on their goal(s). Sometimes the goals are unwholesome. They are insatiable and the grass can always be greener on the other side!
But Vishakhas can slowly grow in influence and at their ideal best self-realisation, they thus ripen. They have to show Patience, persistence and determination. There’s a sense of ploughing and cultivation in their lives.
Favorable: Clever; has respect for intelligent and spiritual people; enterprising; self-satisfied; determined; gets things done; can appear soft but is very powerful underneath; sexually alluring; a good mate in marriage; benefits through marriage, traveling, and through change; mathematical talent. These people can be cultured and with dignity, influential and honest. Vishakhas at their best show good manners and become influential people. They can be religious or spiritual.
Unfavorable: Overly talkative; nice until they get what they want; negative, speaks negatively about others, fault-finding; not open to advice; offensive and not easy to like; greedy, deceitful, aggressive, domineering, quick to take offense, militant, suspicious, possessive, envious; feels obstructed and taken advantage of by others.
Key Guidance: For someone in whose horoscope Vishakha plays an important role, much depends on the goals he sets for himself. If these objectives are self-centred, he may become unbearable for other people and may head towards the wrong direction. Vishakha is always totally devoted in order to reach his goals. He has great courage and ambition. The path suitable to Vishakha is the way of the warrior, like that of Krittika. The Vishakha has to find out for himself whether his goals actually serve all of humanity or solely his own good. The outcome of this will determine how this constellation will manifest itself: as a curse or as a blessing.

Swati Nakshatra is the 15th Nakshatra in the wonderful, powerful and surely declarative 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of vedic astrology: The Nakshatras.
Swati Nakshatra spans: 6°40′ to 20°00′ of the Vedic sign of Libra in the Vedic Sidereal Zodiac.
Swati is Ruled by Rahu, the North Node of the Moon, but because the constellation falls wholly within Vedic Libra, Venus is also an important energy for Swatis.
Swati is a constellation focused on the blessing (or the curse) of balance: being balanced, yet becoming one’s self. Not easy combination. So, Individuality and True Self are the incarnational goals of Swati.
The shadow side of this Nakshatra is the self-centeredness they can go in for. They are thus both healing and destructive.
Rahu-Venus is a highly indulgent combination! Can like the finer things in life, comfort and luxury.
If you have Sun in Swati, this denotes a big problem for your life. Sun is deeply debilitated in Swati (Sun’s greatest Debilitation degree is: 10 deg Libra), so Sun in Swati denotes difficulties from the father. There is also lack of confidence and codependency, but also nervous reaction and driven independence against that!
Saturn reaches his highest exaltation in Swati. This thus creates a propensity for sowing seeds for the future and long term planning, even though Swati is balanced up with qualities opposed to that. And Saturn can bring much-needed discipline, persistence, strategy and structure to Swati Nakshatra.
Swati Nakshatra Video Below
The Ruling Deity for Swati is: Vayu, The Wind God, also God of the crucial breath of life, prana (Vayu is also the father is the courageous, virtuous, devoted and dutiful Hanuman, also the father of Agni = Fire), but also blowing this way and that! So Swati people can be agitated and destructive. Essentially, air bridges matter and spirit. They are ‘ideas people’: drawn to develop ideas which they can turn into material wealth.
The Symbol for Swati Nakshatra is: the Sword which they cut with both positively and negatively.
The Yoni or power animal for Swati is: the Male Buffalo – an unstoppable hefty but nervy hard-working force of willpower and anger – yes this is Swati energy!
Swati’s Motivation is: Artha (wealth and worldly comfort) – they are motivated to create these qualities.
Gana: Divine (Deva – angelic, loving and accommodating)
The Principal Star of Swati constellation is: Arcturus
Swati often ends up living away from birth place, especially with Ascendant (Lagna) in Swati.
Swati Nakshatra Keywords:
They are much more Vata, nervy and sensitive, adventurous and ready to be spooked than people realise, and they are prone to over-running and panic and are restless, dextrous and roaming, so when they reach panic state the full ‘buffalo’ power animal panic and rush is seen. Traditional phrases apply such as the ‘good goer’ and the independent ‘self-blower’ who paradoxically is also delicate and tender. Symbolically, they are ‘a young shoot blown by the wind’ or a ‘new bud bending in the wind’. Sometimes the Swati wind blows up to Tornado (at which times: run for cover). But there is also a ‘wait and watch’, and awareness that sometimes things need to fall into place (the Saturn influence) and a nervous ‘balancing up’ side to them.
Swati is the central Nakshatra balance with thirteen other nakshatras either side. This means that like Chitra, balance is a central life issue, and, of course, balance can be the curse of balancing up rather than speaking from heart-knowing, and balance can mean terrible loss of self. Thus, they can be arguing procrastinators, even though on the other hand (balance) they can be very open to the New. They are noted for being diplomatic (sometimes irritatingly so) and compromising (a double-edged virtue!) but can be sweet-speaking and compassionate.
They are seen as late bloomers, with the second half of their life more successful than the first.
They are eager to learn, restless, sensitive (fragile), doing business. but they are dedicated to their independence.
Musical, artistic, creative, intuitive and psychic, Swati is related to Saraswati and music and conducive for all sorts of learning whether material, philosophical or Spiritual and their rulership by Rahu makes them ready and eager to learn. The Rahu-Venus combined influence often brings an odd or unorthodox tinge to the artistic taste.
Compassionate, honest, intellectual courteous, Swatis are sympathetic, humane and very flexible (to the point of being accused of ‘low moral’). They have good business and financial skills and are good communicators. They are good ‘persuaders’ and are good at doing deals. They are good learners, knowledgeable, curious and flexible, vulnerable with survival instincts. they are changeable, restless and fickle. Over-indulgence can mar their lives. They can be wealthy. They seldom lose their temper and are fond of company. their mind orientates to division, cutting, flow, movement, swift attitude, an eye on the future,
Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Swati allows for scattering like the wind. Its heavenly basis emanates for moving in various directions, which results in change of form, through which there is transformation. With Sun so deeply debilitated they are always looking for recognition. There’s a light, airy promiscuous, roaming-free, detached, observant quality which can manifest as bringing in change. Swatis are excellent for scheduling their communication. They are good at learning things, and have good memory and retentive ability.

Prophetic Utterance and Sacred Alphabets Chitra Nakshatra
Chitra Nakshatra is the 14th Nakshatra or Lunar Sign of Vedic Astrology. The translation of the name sums up the energy of a person whose planets are prominently placed here: Brilliant, bright and shining.
Chita Nakshatra spans: 23°40′ of the Vedic Sign of Virgo to 6°40′ of the Vedic Sign of Libra. Vedic Astrology uses the Sidereal Zodiac, as compared to western astrology’s use of the tropical zodiac. And Vedic Astrology also has this wonderful 27-sign Lunar Zodiac called the Nakshatras.
Chitras are very creative. The Ruling Deity of Chitra is Vishvakarma (Tvashtar) The Heavenly Architect. Their life mission is to create something beautiful. They can be quite magical in the way they go about this.
The Symbol of Chitra Nakshatra is the Pearl. Just as the dull oyster shell can open to reveal the unutterable beauty of the pearl within, so Chitra’s lives are often the endless attempt to reveal their specialness and creative beauty to the world.
The Power animal of Chitra Nakshatra is the Female Tiger, so they can be very touchy and temperamental, with a strong streak of aggression, retaliation and ruthlessness if you upset them (don’t do it!)
So, now let’s look at Chitra Pada 4:
There is a very valid and powerful system of analysing the Nakshatras which divides each of the 27 Nakshatras into four quarters or ‘padas’. Each Pada is ruled by the energy of a zodiacal sign.
Each Nakshatras Pada covers the same area of the heavens as each Navamsha. The Navamsha chart is one of the wonderful Vedic Divisional or Varga charts, this one to do with marriage and the expression of your soul in this life.
Chitra Pada 4 spans 03°20′ to 06°40′ of the Vedic sign of Libra.
Chitra Pada 4 is ruled by Scorpio in the pada sequence.
So, the 4th pada of Chitra is Scorpio in its energy. The energy is quite magical, deep, fully of intensity and inner knowing and mysterious.
Because it is Scorpio in nature, Chitra pada 4 is intense and controlling. It is often full of hurt energies and the compensatory need to shine, delve and investigate. And as you would expect from the tantric nature of vedic astrology, difficult torsion energies, if learned about properly can give us great potential for spiritual transformation, perception, healing and growth. Experience of trauma can impel us to find spiritual meaning. It can impel us to develop prophetic utterance. And this is what my video on Chitra pada 4 is all about:
And part of this nature is that people with planets here are often visionary. Indeed, I have found that such people often seem to enrol on one of my courses to learn prophetic ancient alphabets such as the Runes of the Ancient Norse or the Ogham of the ancient Irish.
So, Chitra pada 4 is the pada of Chitra Gupta, who holds the book of life recording all our karmic deeds.
Chitra Gupta is the deity of Utterance and writing. He is akin to the other great gods of sacred Alphabets and prophetic utterance: Thoth, Maat, Odin, Hermes and Ogma.
The featured image of this Blog Post shows Odin who hung upside down in the World Tree trancing for nine days and nights in pain and cold until he seized the meaning and the magic of the runes: the alphabet of the ancient Norse and Germanic peoples.
This is the pada where our scripts and behaviour habits and patterns of behaviour have to be modified and changed. This way we come to express the revelation from our inner being. This is the true place of the secret knowledge of Chitra Gupta.
In part 1 of the course, you study each Nakshatra in turn, with special reference to the manifestation of that Nakshatras energy in your chart and mine, but also bringing in family, friends and celebrities. The aim of this chart focus is to promote caring and authentic discussion and analysis. There is full information about each of the Nakshatras’ qualities and characteristics, plus a reading list, and there’s a video for each Nakshatra for you to review.
Natal study of the Nakshatras: So, what you do is you analyse the implications for each of the planets in our two charts in the light of the Nakshatras they occupy. What does this mean for our personality, for our life, for our destiny? How will it affect our emotional natures and consciousness arising therefrom? What steps can we take to heal and empower?
In Part 2 of the course, you learn the full range of the interpretation techniques using the nakshatras, such as Navtara the derived Nakshatras table (the Tara system) and health astrology using the Nakshatras, Surya, Manasa and Nadi Nakshatras. Nakshatras for relationship compatibility. Predictive study of the Nakshatras: You also analyse the predictive implications of transits of planets through the Nakshatras and, using Nakshatra analysis, you also deepen your analysis of Vedic Astrology’s wonderful system of predictive periods and sub-periods: the Dashas and Bhuktis
Correspondence: You email me your work in respect of each Nakshatra within Part 1 and then each Technique within Part 2, and I then email you my response, which is always detailed, learned and very caring. You are always welcome to ask questions at any point.
In all cases, there will be opportunity if you wish for it for linking of the astrological perception, to approaches of healing and empowerment, and use of art and embodiment work, and for example: psychosynthesis, psychosynthesis roleplay, Inner Child Work and Family Constellation Work, where applicable. A wide range of separately charged skilled worldwide Healing Modalities is available if you would feel this to be individually beneficial for you.
