Worldwide Nakshatras Course and Ashlesha Nakshatra

Michael ConneelyNakshatra #9: Ashlesha Nakshatra

The Nakshatras are supremely good at depicting our emotional nature and thus our consciousness arising therefrom. They are deeply ancient and powerful celestial wisdom and reflect the lunar Zodiac: the position of the Moon in the heavens. They are profound and offer both penetratingly exact novelistic interpretation as well as simply divine perception, classification and categorization. You can learn so much about yourself. you can learn so much about the other people in your life. They are a key to life-meaning and relationships.

 


 

Here is some preliminary information about Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha Nakshatra Key Words:

Ingenious, versatile, very fluent, imaginative and artistic.
Money-minded, will do anything for money. Can be subtle cheats or liars playing mind-games with those they defraud.
Controlling of self and others.
Hypnotising, with innate reflexive use of sexual power.
Shrewd. There can be brilliance, though this is not necessarily always consistent.
Controversial.
Translation: the entwiner.
Power animal: The Male Cat – cleanliness, finicky, detached, indifferent.
Penetrating, intense, hypnotic.
Wise, profound, secretive; deceptive or evasive.
Ambitious and full of conviction. Business orientated and heartlessly greedy. Untrustworthy liars and cheats.
Reclusive, independent and self-reliant. Marilyn Monroe has Ashlesha Ascendant/Lagna.
Hate critics, vengeful towards humiliation.
Crafty, devious, controlling. Can be cruel and wicked, ungrateful and tactless.
Mercury, here, the Ashlesha sign ruler, can be shrewd and manipulative here and his negative sides of evasion, deception and deviousness need to be watched out for. This Nakshatra is called the entwiner. It ensnares and entangles. It controls.
With the weaker representatives of Ashlesha Nakshatra, there is the risk of mental instability, worry, fear and melancholy for some. The sensitive nervous system can be prone to psychic invasion and self-deception.
But at its best, there is potential for redemption and transcendental perception.

Favorable: Versatile, clever; makes their living in a number of ways. The leader: they can accomplish things when motivated and gain good wealth. they put great energy into things that interest them. They can transform their lives and benefit from spiritual work. Although serpent energy has its poisonous qualities, it also offers penetration, insight and concentration. The negative serpent energy needs to be won over and used for self-less and sattvic purposes, harnessing its instinctual wisdom, cunning, occult and esoteric knowing both for individual good and the good of humanity. When and if truly activated, this Nakshatra can bring mystical power, electrifying shakti and spiritual enlightenment.

Unfavorable: controlling and entwining. The hypnotizer. They disempower others. Snakes paralyze their enemy with their poisonous glance. Unscrupulous; dismissive attitude; impolite, tactless, unpopular, lacks social skills; doesn’t like rules; hoarding mentality; secretive; talkative; lack of gratitude; fragmented and ineffective; reck­less, disconnected, introspective, depressed, and isolated; lacks grace. They have a reputation for fierce court battles, and can be poisonous. They are notorious for using people, and also cutting people out of their lives. They can abuse their powerful energy for self-centred purposes: the snake seduces us to leave paradise, and yet they like to look supremely spiritual, if rather calculating and smarmy. Ashleshas have gained a certain reputation by hypnotising their oppo­nent, abusing their sexual attrac­tion, black magic and ‘snake-like’ intrigues.  They can be crooks and tricksters on the borderlands or outside decent society, playing mental games and dealing in glamours and illusions and sexual manipulations: calculating, cold-blooded and selfish, launching venom attacks and spreading poison. They are notorious for weaving webs, working in secret and creating elites and takeovers, even from a position of stagnation, laziness and indulgence. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Aslesha allows for inflicting with poison. Its heavenly basis emanates for approach of the serpent, which results in trembling and agitation, through which there is destruction of the victim. When we get tangled up in desire, it leads to madness because we do not have any detachment.

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.

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.

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.

This Nakshatras Course shares with my other two Vedic Astrology Courses, the opportunity to study some of Vedic Astrology’s deepest secrets.
It is a powerful tool for developing a profound view of your own astrological chart and it can help in realizing your true path and nature.
It is especially important for discovering your soul’s destiny and helping you to maximize your potential and heal and resolve problems and issues you have in this life; be they emotional, physical or mental.
In fact, my Vedic Astrology courses are exceptional in offering a combination of Astrology and optional Healing techniques that can bring about empowerment and profound and long lasting change to a person.

And they offer opportunity for Western Astrology crossover if you wish for that additional dimension.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Worldwide Nakshatras Course and Pushyami Nakshatra

Michael ConneelyNakshatra #8. Pushyami Nakshatra

The Nakshatras are the 27-sign Lunar Zodiac of Vedic Astrology. They are supremely good at depicting our emotional nature and thus our consciousness arising therefrom. They are deeply ancient and powerful celestial wisdom and reflect the lunar Zodiac: the position of the Moon in the heavens. They are profound and offer both penetratingly exact novelistic interpretation as well as simply divine perception, classification and categorization. This post discusses Nakshatra #8, Pushyami Nakshatra

The Pushyami power animal is the Ram. There are those who say Pushyamis are pushy, but as a Pushyami Ascendant/Lagna myself, I say that’s a lie! Rams are nice! OK in other versions the power animal of Pushyami is the ‘Lead Goat’ and what could be nicer than that!?

OK: well, perhaps we’re a bit pushy – maybe sometimes! But we’re only pushy because we care!

OK, well, OK, I’ll admit it. The fact is that Pushyamis actually need to learn the that they harm. Their pushiness does harm to others, as well as harm to themselves, as they are actually habitually using their energy to be pushy. So, I suppose I’ll admit it. And Pushyamis can actually harm themselves by projecting a very false front, which denies, hide, belies or even damages other important qualities lying behind that Pushyami Ascendant – qualities and sensitivities there may be in the personality which will just get hidden by the ‘front’.

In fact, an important truth is that if you have planets in Pushyami, you have to admit the truth and recognise your failings, before you can find your strength. But they key energy that is seeking to express itself through you is Brahman and Kshatriya, and the nurturer: priest, warrior and nurturer.

Here are some key qualities of Pushyamis:

Favorable: religious, spiritual and devotional, and often with a deep conventional spiritual issue to deal with. They are intelligent, spiritual, priestly, benevolent. They are philosophers and teachers. They are maternal, kind, helpful and generous: soothing, nourishes or helps others. they are caring. They have a sense of home, family and community. But there is also the side to them that is the warrior, inde­pendent and self-sufficient. They are interested in education and humanitarian activities, socially adept, make good counselors and public servants, make people feel wanted, want to learn all they can about life—makes them knowledgeable in many areas, earn a good living, respected, mod­erate in desire, passionate about what they believe in, will come strong­ly to the defense of something or someone they believe in. they are orientated to increase and expansion, and once they have started on something they very often most definitely will succeed! Pushyamis tend to be prudent, contemplative, conservative, sober, careful, self-reliant, systematic, methodical and patient. They are usually very hard-working. They are often introverted, but often well-liked. They can be ‘the wise guy’. They can tend to talk thoughtfully.

Unfavorable: Zealot, too talkative, interested in so many things that they don’t become great in any one thing, they are high-minded but arrogant. Also, they are overly sensitive or emo­tional, their devotion can turn to submission leaving them open to being a martyr or victim; get defrauded by believing in the wrong people. They can be needy dependent and addictive, fond of good food even to excessive eating. They have a stubborn, selfish nature with arrogance and pride, rigid and narrow-minded. They can have a very orthodox streak, strangely: even when they are very alternative. From the Cancer placement, they are prone to clinging on to hurt, sensitivity and jealousy. They can become lethargic or passive at times, as they fluctuate.

Friends: They very definitely need to learn in life to be more discriminating with their friends, associations and groups.
Mother: Strong issues with mother

Family: problems with family of origin. Their Cancerian attachment to their mother or their family members can be positive, but often it gravely inhibits their life and growth. And they are very insecure, and cling to hurt.

Marriage: Pushyami can be desperately unfortunate for marriage. They can have to learn the hard way here. Prince Charles has Pushyami Ascendant.

Obviously, if they have Pushyami Lagna/Ascendant, Saturn-ruled Capricorn will be in the 7th House and Saturn-ruled Aquarius will be the 8th House.

If the Moon is in Pushyami, well, this will activate the Saturn energy because Saturn rules Pushyami, and so 7th House from Moon will be Capricorn.

Symbol: Its key symbol is teat of cow – arrow – flower and the Deity is Brihaspati- teacher of the Devas and the Vedic Priest. The name “Pushyami” means nourisher- flower- the best. Pushya literally is related to the breasts. It is about nurturing and nourishment which of course is a part of the body and a function that brings about connection and stability. This is a very gentle Nakshatra at root.

Venus in Your Astrology Birth Chart


Michael ConneelyVENUS: MORNING STAR – EVENING STAR:

The astrology of Venus is very ancient.
Venus in Your Astrology

When Venus appears as the Morning Star, the brilliant spark of light is running ahead of the sun.
Then for a time, when Venus is in conjunction with the Sun, Venus is invisible.

Then Venus occupies a later degree than the sun and is the Evening Star.

The energy of brilliant Venus has most anciently been seen as the scintillating brilliance of love.

And so, when the Morning Star ahead of the Sun Venus is the untamed, primal sexual force of love, impulsive and naïve, a representation of Venus in Your Astrology

Then a descent into the underworld occurred and Venus was invisible: this is the descent of the Babylonian Goddess Ishtar into the Underworld.

And then, after the descent into the underworld, and the painful period of growth, the mature Goddess of love reigns in the skies again, this time as Queen of Heaven, ideally transformed as more compassionate and wise – if not left bereft!

VEDIC ASTROLOGY VENUS – AND SUCCESSFUL CHOICE IN LIFE:

Venus in your astrology chart reveals your capacity to make happy fulfilling successful choices. A well-placed Venus naturally chooses to do the things that will lead to success and accomplishment. A weak Venus will create a personality doomed to make choices that will not lead to enjoyment or worldly happiness.

See Parts 1 and 2 of the Venus in your Astrology Birth Chart Video:

If you have a strong Venus, you will be happily devoted and loyal to people and make decisions that will lead to a life path of fulfillment. But an afflicted Venus person will devote their time and resources to people, circumstances and ideologies that will always leave them wanting; their vision will fail to materialize.

Pride in your Venus gives you the knowledge that you have made the best possible choices, maintained your relationships in the best possible way, chosen the path that lead to your highest fulfillment, reversed the problems of your childhood, achieved the best possible outcomes.

For expert study of the Venus principle in your life, have one of my worldwide astrology readings or astrology mini-readings see: www.starwheelastrology.com There is also Heart Wall Clearing, Healing and empowerment, opening the heart to love.

VENUS ATTRIBUTES:

Venus generally signifies what you value. It particularly signifies sexual matters. Can also signify money, also love and art, also draws out the emotional & sympathetic nature. Venus is refinement. Also, can mean love of home. Venus invariably brings a desire to take things reasonably easily, to have peace and quiet. Venus can take the line of least resistance to its context or surroundings. Companionship. Affection are important – and influential in decision-making. Venus’ position by sign and house can also give information about the woman in one’s life, e.g. mother or wife (as can the Moon).

In Vedic Astrology, Venus is sexuality, sexual power, sexual magnetism, the reproductive system, love affairs, passion, eroticism, sensual enjoyment, desire and love, the important ability to make decisions that lead to sexual and loving fulfillment, the ovaries – and our capacity to love. He rules the spouse and marriage – and if afflicted by malefics can cause sexual disorders or diseases. charisma, inspiration and enthusiasm, our appreciation of beauty. As Sukra, his name means ‘brilliant light, he is semen, art, beauty, taste, refinement, love and marriage, poetry and sense of harmony. He is the beauty of colour and the fire of gems.

Venus in our Birth Chart also represents our ability to recuperate, our DNA, the muscles, genetics, jewelry, art, entertainment, massage, romance, gentleness, the wife, women, vehicles and diplomacy.

Venus in our Vedic birth chart represents ‘small fortunes’, harmony, balance, compromise, sociability and comforts, creativity, art, artists, entertainment, glamour, Venus is beautiful, magnetic and attractive. Venus is the guide of demons and spiritual teacher. In Vedic Astrology, he is male, but his energy is feminine.

Sukra enhances the House he is placed within. He is the spark of our aspiration for the good and Venus’ beauty can be a gateway to the divine realms; Ananda is the divine bliss of creation.

On a lower plane, Venus is seeking luxury and comfort and materiality. Beauty and sex is used by advertising to cheapen it.

Mythological and psychological archetypes of Venus are: the Muse, the whore (for sale), the courtesan (style and skill) and the sacred harlot (initiator, inspiration).

Afflicted Venus can be vain, superficial and affected, wanting the joy of possession and the adulation of others; Venus can be effeminate in men, showy and can be vain, competitive, seductive and even vampiric. Negative Venus is taken in by appearances and at the level of glamours and consumption. Whole cultures can give themselves over to negative violence and be based on greed, image and materialism. Self-indulgence destroys the person. Seductiveness drains away direction and is fickle and hard to get and impossible to keep. This negative Venus craves excess or seeks only to be desired. Negatively, Venus can be callous, vain, self-indulgent, amoral. Can be cunning and treacherous. Venus sees a relationship as a kind of mirror; ‘unashamed’. Venus falls foul of collective values (but denial of Venus can bring worse problems!). Venus is concerned with self-definition through relationships rather than relating.

The higher form of Venus is seen in Vedic astrology as the Guru, like Jupiter. This is because Venus is astral light which opens up realms of art, psychic possibilities and creative direction. This Venus is divine and devotional. And so, this Venus transforms by charm, harmony and beauty – transmutation into spiritual power and strength of will.

Here’s some facts and details on the Vedic astrology of Venus:

Venus rules the signs Taurus and Libra.
Taurus can be very material and stuck

Libra can be so keen to have balance that they lose their connection to instinct and become inauthentic and false.

Venus is Exalted in Pisces
Venus is most Exalted at 27 Pisces and most deeply Fallen at 27 Virgo.

Venus is critical perfectionism, and fussy unbearableness in love.

Venus is Mulatrikona 0 – 15 Libra.

Sukra is the Karaka (indicator) of the 7th House.
For a man: Venus signifies the man’s wife and love-life.
Venus in the 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th (Kendra) Houses is very forgiving.

Venus’ friends are Mercury and Saturn.
Venus’ enemies are Sun and Moon.

Mars and Jupiter are neutral to Venus.
Venus and the other Planets:

Vedic astrology has a system of stating how Venus and the other planets will treat each other.

Saturn – Venus: For example, when Venus and Saturn are conjunct, this may mean in a man’s chart that women will be hard on him, and that Venus will feed Saturn, but that Saturn will starve Venus. Lack of self-worth will doom the chance for love.
Saturn-Venus, positively is sense of duty, faithfulness, self-control, earnestness and sincerity, a somewhat controlled or derivative form of artisticness. But negatively is lack of self-respect and inward shame, discontent, estrangement, conflicts arising from jealousy, separation, sacrifice, poverty and disappointment in matters of love. Saturn opposition Venus can be the ‘marry for money’ syndrome. She will have deep feelings of unattractiveness and inferiority.

Can be love unions with an appreciable difference in age, or you will experience anguish or delay in finding love.

Venus in aspect to Uranus can be addicted to affairs and the new, and not understand the benefits of commitment. Venus – Uranus brings excitable expression of love: impulsive and erratic. Variegated expression of love. Artistic talents, a self-willed love nature. Peculiar inclinations. Very independent in love. Detached in love

Venus conjunct Pluto can have a penchant for falling deeply passionately intensely in love.

Venus Mars combinations are fiery, and unstable, with passion leading to excess, violence or even crime in worst case scenario. In reality, Venus prefers more gentle environments. There’s the myth about how Aphrodite was married to Vulcan but he bored her, so she had her hopeless affair with Aries. Usually Mars is too aggressive for harmony-loving Venus.

Venus Neptune is the impossible ideal of love, or the delusion. Compassion. Mysticism. Romance. Seduction. Erotic imagination. Illusion. Other-worldly values.  sensitiveness in love. Easily influenced. Great receptivity to beauty, art and music. Dreamy nature. High ideals, mistaken sense of love. Seducible character. The mystic. Romantic reverie. Unearthly sense of reality. Artistic interests. Fae love and music. The Pied Piper.

Moon is your needs; Venus is your wants: are the two synched and in harmony? What was the effect of your mothering in the relationship between these two? Your relationship may be co-dependent or even parasitic. Or desperate and needy. The person with a waning moon in their birth chart can be particularly unfulfilled, demanding or parasitic.

The Sun ego can burn Venus to a cinder. Authority figures can belittle your needs. You can lack the courage to stand up for your love and pleasure and beauty. Everything is done for the sake of appearance rather than intrinsic value. Or Venus can starve the Sun through relying too much on advice or the opinion of others to the detriment of the Solar expression. This can be the boss who takes far too much advice and never decides, the person who sacrifices all for the opinion of others, and trying to please and even wants to be the glove that fits the hand of all others.

Mercury – Venus people include authors, artists, salesmen of beauty requisites or objects d’art, researchers and good decision-makers. Speech is more diplomatic, gracious, respectful, charming and soothing. One makes good friendships that lead to greater fulfillment, rather than attract lame ducks and millstones round the neck. Life can be more fun.

Venus—Jupiter is nearly always sentimental and sometimes even gushy and false, the type is invariably big-hearted, with feelings that tend to go overboard and generally ooze everywhere. Negative Venus – Jupiter is Sickeningly sweet to others, smarmy, pompous and boring,

Spoiled, involved in meaningless social aggrandizement, conceited, lazy, maudlin and flowery, sentimental,

Hypocritical, takes others for granted, likes to be the centre of attraction, and can overindulge in sex or eating.
Depending on the houses Jupiter and especially Venus occupy, the combination may mislead the person into relying on mainly one area of life for fulfillment: so, in the 5th house can give too much focus on children.

Ketu (South node)-Venus brings a script of rejection in past life relationship into the current life, that can lead to the person who endless gets in there first to reject, rather than run the risk of being the rejected one (again) and this script needs to be healed. Ketu-Venus can indicate pornography, guilt, shame and waste.

Rahu (North Node)-Venus can attract you to the foreign, and be possessive and suspicious, driven to damaging passions, multiple unions and lust for money and power. The Nodes can catch Venus into a treadmill of negative karma.

Chiron-Venus may have the gift of seeing beauty where others can not; finding value in what others dismiss as worthless. Chiron-Venus’ values are intensely personal, and are adhered to with great tenacity and can even assume philosophical or political dimensions – e.g. campaigning for women’s rights to being an enthusiastic supporter of the arts. With Chiron-Venus, we often meet people who seem already familiar to us, definitely as if we have known them in other lives. We find inspiration and we discover our next steps through intense and synchronous meetings with people who bring new ideas, rich interpersonal encounters, suggestions, insights or business contacts. Especially this aspect can bring artistic inspiration or personal growth. Chiron-Venus makes us very sensitive to disharmony in-between others – and we may become involved in others’ disputes – unconsciously, we feel responsible for bringing love and harmony into life. This may date from infancy when we tried to bring peace between warring parents, siblings or in-laws – or may have felt pressed to side with one parent against another. Later on, we may engage in futile struggles to resolve the irresolvable in relationships. Or we may stay in conflictful and wounding situations, hoping vainly they will get better and harming ourselves in the process. And with Chiron-Venus, our first intimate relationships may well be a baptism of fire, for we always accommodate others and do not make a stand for our own values, denying one’s self – a pattern with roots in infancy. But equally, Chiron/Venus can have the ability to open others’ capacity for relationships and touch them deeply. On even more dangerous ground, Chiron/Venus may enter into darker areas of relationships, enduring trial and suffering as a test (v. The Myth of Psyche). And  Chiron/Venus may be drawn to ‘beautiful people’ – images rather than real people: seduced by wealth, glamour, art, &c. May secretly enjoy provoking envy in others. May suffer illusory intoxication of being in love with love. One of the Chiron-Venus wounds is that they may at first seem pliable and self-effacing, and this causes problems when they want to grow in a relationship. (The Myth of Psyche and Aphrodite). And lastly, Chiron-Venus can indicate a wound of unrelatedness to instincts and physical passions.

Retrograde Venus means the person will have to give very special attention to the demands of Venus to have success in love and other Venus matters.

Unaspected Venus: Having an unaspected sub-personality means that sometimes you may come over over-powerfully with that energy to other people, and yet have no real idea of how powerfully you are coming across with those characteristics; you might feel you are being too weak – or vice versa.

But it also means that that energy-principle is unconnected to the rest of you. It is an unaspected sub-personality. You will find it difficult to assess. It could be the tail that wags the dog. It could take over your life. At other times, you will be unable to access and connect to its energy at all.

We need to recognise and understand our unaspected sub-personalities. This can be done through the method of role-play psychosynthesis. It is linked to the principle of ‘Individuation’ in the psychology of Asaglione.

The development of the Venus Archetype in our life:

Ideally, from a sense of comfort and security, the child begins to venture out and soak up the pleasures filtering through his/her awakening senses. The child must ideally see all his/her parts reflected though the parents’’ eyes, as if they are a mirror held up for approval and love.
The unelected parts are split off into the unconscious: thus, our sensual nature risks being wounded through non- acknowledgement. A child needs to be acknowledged as loveable. He/she wants to be held, and to feel good.

In the process of opening ourselves up to love, we make ourselves vulnerable: it is this vulnerability that is so viciously crushed and destroyed in this culture. The Lover archetype is the easiest to wound, the hardest to heal.

The child that has not had its sensual nature properly acknowledged by the parents will become ‘bound’ to them in a desperate attempt to become the apple of their eye. The child therefore tries to win the parents’ love through all sorts of measures: will stop at nothing (= Mama’s boy)

OR

the child becomes ‘less than’ by retreating into his/her private thoughts and becoming The Romantic Dreamer, who numbs out his/her body by retreating in order to escape the shaming wounds to their souls.

Wounded Lovers may use food to fill the void; another common substitute is having a pet.

Worldwide Nakshatra Course and Rohini Nakshatra

Michael Conneely

Michael Conneely

Worldwide Nakshatra Course and Rohini Nakshatra

Rohini Nakshatra is the 4th Nakshatra. The Nakshatras are the wonderful and powerful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology. See my Worldwide Nakshatras Course website

In Part 1 of my course, you receive full charts at the outset and 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. You study each of the Nakshatra with reference to your chart and mine, and this approach makes our study caring, grounded and authentic. We develop great penetrating perception and wisdom, and always we ask: what steps can we take to heal and empower?

In Part 2 of my course, you receive a statement of the several powerful dedicated techniques of Nakshatra Analysis, including predictive use of the Nakshatras through predictive periods called dashas, and also transits. You apply each of these powerful and illuminating techniques to our charts. These techniques are very powerful illumination indeed. They transform our astrological understanding. They transform our life.

The Nakshatras give very powerful and penetrating insight into our emotional natures and our consciousness arising therefrom, and our potential for relationships, career, spiritual path and relationships. Each Nakshatra has many subtle attributes to give us depth uncanny knowledge about ourselves and others. For example, each Nakshatra has a power animal, a ruling planet, a ruling deity, a symbol, and each Nakshatra links to the great and ancient Vedic analysis systems of the Doshas, the Ganas, the Aims of Life, and so on

Nakshatra No. 4, Rohini Nakshatra occupies 10° – 23°20′ Taurus. It contains the bright star Aldebaran. Rohini is ruled by The Moon, its ruling deity is the powerful, creative Brahma. Its symbol is the Chariot, its power animal is the Male Serpent. Rohini is motivated to Moksha (salvation). Its Gunas orientation (to three levels) is: Rajas, Tamas and Rajas, so Rohini people are desirous and materialistic. Its Ayurvedic Dosha is Kapha. And, being all in the Vedic sign Taurus, its quality is Fixed.

How can we describe Rohinis? Well, Rohinis are passionate, sexually seductive, elegant, attractive and charismatic. They have an alluring, wish-fulfilling, creative nature. They love children, art, music and luxury, prosperity and abundance. Their fertile nature means they achieve their goals. They are generally snobbish, pampered and materialistic and are often horribly critical of those whom they consider not up to their own standards. They are snobby, so they only really open up in intimate situations.

Rohinis are expressive ‘smooth talkers’, often popular and charismatic in the right social circles. They have an unflinching fixity of purpose to get their way. They are opportunists with a knack for gaining favours, and can generally be conservative, healthy and long-living. Unfavourably, Rohinis take advantage of the trust or belief that others put in them; they can be the deceptive manipulator; sexually or sensually indulgent; capri­cious; quick to find weakness then lose interest in others. Rohinis have huge potential for con­flicts or lack of alignment with their mother – conflicts where they are stubborn and definitely overly analytical.

The Myth of Rohini is that The Moon fell in love with her above all the other 26 signs. Rohini is regarded as one of the most favourable lunar con­stellations for one’s earthly life. Rohini was the favourite bride of Chandra, the lunar god. She became his favourite because of her beauty, artistic talents and exper­tise in the ‘erotic arts’. The colour red is associated with Rohini. Rohini means red and red relates to passion and sensua­lity.

Rohini constellation consists of five stars, among which is the red star Aldabaran. If the Moon is in Rohini, then the Moon is exalted. This means that Rohini is an exceptionally favou­rable position for the Moon to be in.

Rohini carries a big risk, however. A person with a strong Rohini emphasis in their birth chart may get lost and stuck in the materialistic aspects of life, and lose their spiritual meaning and path. They lose their spiritual meaning at their peril.

Each Nakshatra is divided into four quarters or ‘padas’.

The first pada of Rohini is Aries pada 10°00′ to 13°20′ Taurus. The Mars ruled quality brings passionate, impulsive, impatient nature, where the Sun is exalted and Saturn is debilitated and cannot express his qualities well.

The second pada of Rohini is Taurus pada: 13°20′ to 16°40′ Taurus. This pada has special potential as it is vargottama: in the same sign in the Rashi birth chart as in the Navamsha soul/marriage chart. And this second Pada is also pushkara, which means it has special potential for healing its wound and achieving success thereby.

The third pada of Rohini is Gemini Pada: more mentalistic and business-like.

And the fourth pada of Rohini is Cancer Pada: 20°00′ to 23°20′ Taurus. A person with this emphasis is very home orientated, but can be watery and unstable. Jupiter and Moon do well here, but Mars does not.

Worldwide Nakshatra Course and Bharani Nakshatra

Bharani Nakshatra is the 2nd of the 27 Nakshatras, the wonderful and powerfully declarative Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology.

In Part 1, you learn each of the Nakshatras in turn, focusing on your chart and mine so as to keep the discussion caring genuine and authentic. Where neither of us have a planet in any given Nakshatra, you bring in family friends or celebrity charts.

The translation of the name Bharani is: The Bearer. Its Power animal is the Bull Elephant and its symbol is: A female sex organ. Its Presiding Deity is Yama (Death or the setting sun). Bharani’s Location is Vedic Aries 13°20′ to Vedic Aries 26°40′ and Bharani’s Ruling Planet is Venus.

The energy of Bharani is extreme: swings between polar opposites: puritanism and bohemia, naivete and wisdom, maturity and immaturity, life and death. Eager and full of desire. They crash into experiencing life to the full. primeval innocence, instinct rather than reason. Overwhelming desire so they are hard to restrain. There are no boundaries to the Bharani universe. It all depends on how evolved they are. The energy is creative, and so part of this is that they Indulge in things they shouldn’t.

Ruled by Venus, their smile is manipulative and seductive, and compelling. But they can be cruel sinister and morbid. So, their Caste is mleccha: outcaste. It’s explosive energy that can’t be controlled within any social structure.

Favorably, Bharani is quick-minded; desires new experiences (especially with love affairs); prefers spontaneous behavior; gets things done quickly; dutiful; sticks by their family and friends and has a courageous though can be bullying attitude. But unfavourably, Bharani can be fickle, amoral, too clever or calculating; doesn’t pace themselves; resists control; can be in denial and unman­ageable, stubborn, childlike, vulnerable; their vigour often bothers more conservative people

Bharani has to do with growing processes that emerge from wit­hin.  It is the constellation of the womb where new life comes into being.  It has to do with birth and transformation.  Birth and death belong together – there is no separation.  Each time we enter a new phase of our life, we conclude an old one.  The dying of the old is the logical consequence of the birth of the new.  It is because of this that Yama, the god of death, belongs to this constellation.

The vagina is the symbol of this lunar constel­lation.  The vagina welcomes the seed that makes new life possible and is the way through which new life comes into the world.  The sexual act is the foundation of the beginning of new life.  The transforma­tion processes connected to this constellation, however, can be violent, a difficult and painful process.

The Nakshatra Bharani is related to Tamas – motivated to remove difficulties or avoid trouble. Bharani people are Mlecchas – barbarians, mainly concerned with the pursuit of artha – wealth and worldly comfort. The temperament of Bharani is Manusha – human | down to earth and tangible and its sex is Female. Elementally, and through Ayurveda (the medical System of India), Bharani is related to Pitta – (fire) – ambition. Its nature is to be fierce and severe, ideally in a balanced way. It is closely associated with preservation

Worldwide Nakshatra Course and Ashwini Nakshatra

Ashwini Nakshatra is the 1st of the 27 Nakshatras, the wonderful and powerfully declarative Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology.

Learn all about Ashwini Nakshatra and its driven but Healer nature, plus all of the Nakshatras, in my dedicated Nakshatras course:
www.nakshatrasadvancedcourse.com
In Part 1, you learn each of the Nakshatras in turn, focusing on your chart and mine so as to keep the discussion caring genuine and authentic. Where neither of us have a planet in any given Nakshatra, you bring in family friends or celebrity charts.
And in Part 2 of my Nakshatras Course, you learn the powerful techniques of astrological analysis using Nakshatras and Nakshatra Techniques.

Ashwini is the 1st of the 27 Nakshatras. The ruling planet of Ashwini is Ketu, the South Node of the Moon. The first two degrees of Ashwini are in the Gandanta Zone, a special sensitive zone that occurs at each of the transitions from Water Sign to fire Sign: in Ashwini’s case the transition from Pisces to Aries. Ashwini springs out of the Void full of panic, full of knowledge that this material realm is not the full reality, hence Ashwini’s rulership by Ketu.
Ashwini’s Symbol is: Horse’s head.
Ashwini’s Deities are: Ashwini Kumaras – Dasra and Nasatya; the horse-headed twins, the divine physicians.
Ashwini occupies 0° – 13°20′ of Mesha or Vedic Aries.
Ashwinis are pioneers, innovators and explorers. They are heroic, courageous, restless, impatient, full of zest for life and with a strong desire to be of healing service.
But negatively they are hyper-driven, hurtfully impatient, inconsiderate and irresponsible.
N.B. The Ashwini key theme is to learn to be the Horse Tamer, not the spooked horse!
They have a danger of rushing into relationships that could destroy them, and to which their family may well be opposed, and they can only be lucky to escape these relationships later on.
They are prone to injuries through rushing about, especially ankles.
Ashwinis are natural healers and they also put a halt to the ageing process and have a sense of eternal youth. A doctor has to be on the spot quickly.  Ashwinis, like a good doctor tra­vels at high speed to the place where he has to help sick people or has to assist in case of an accident.  This constellation deals with means of transport and rapid acti­ons. A person for whom the Ashwini con­stel­la­tion plays an important role, is open to the needs of others and wants to do somet­hing about these needs in a preferably quick and effi­cient way. This may result in heroic acts, and as a consequence in a growing popularity of the person.  In this case the ego has to be strong enough to handle this populari­ty. Ashwini Nakshatra is very strongly related to Rajas – desire! desire! desire! strongly motivated to fulfill desires or reach personal goals.  

The temperament of Aswinni is Deva – angelic; loving and accommodating and its sex is Male. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Aswinni allows for quickly reaching things. Its heavenly basis emanates for those to be healed, which results in healing therapies, through which the world becomes free from disease.
