Jyestha Nakshatra-Dwadasi July 22nd


Today’s Nakshatra is Jyestha and Tithi is Dwadasi. Jyestha is called by the name of (Alpha,Tau,Sigma ) Scorpii in the western world.It also contains one of the brightest stars Antares and in general forms the sign of Scorpio. Jyestha literally translates to the eldest one and the sense of power and ego is strongest in this nakshatra.Jyestha is also the eldest wife of Lord Soma (moon ) , the metaphysical meaning has been explained many times previously and refer to the posts on other Nakshatras. It is interesting to note Jyestha is directly opposite the Rohini Nakshatra which is the exaltation spot for Lord Soma .

Lord of Nakshatra : Budha (Mercury )

Ruling deity of Nakshatra : Lord Indra

Symbol:Earring or Circular Amulet or Talisman

This Nakshatra is a star of authority , everything in nature happens in circles. The circle of life and death , karma and many more things. Kings or person in authority were supposed to connected to these power circles and hence the natural visualization as this being a Circular amulet of power.Also the ruling deity Indra adds more meaning to this image.Jyestha can also confer a lot of material wealth , the circle imagery also gives rise to the image of the snake swallowing its own tail. This Nakshatra can also give occult knowledge .Also since the ego is very strong in this Nakshatra it leads to the native always striving to maintain a certain image in the eyes of society.Depending on the crowd one hangs out with this could be both good and bad.In societies that award waywardness this will lead to debauchery and in places where charity is honoured it will lead to donations for the sake of name. The negative traits of Jyestha manifest as deep rooted desires for revenge and anger.

Jyestha born people have one extremely good trait and that is the trait of protecting the others. They will plung themselves headlong into trouble to save even strangers if they promised them protection . They will have an excellent career in the police and military .They will also make for excellent humanitarian aid workers and social activists.

The Nakshatra has an airy tattva associated with it and this is due to the lordship of mercury with this star.Mars the ruler of scorpio also lends some its fiery energy to this constellation.Jyestha people can rise very high materially.

Famous people
