Anuradha Nakshatra -Shashti Sep 13


Today’s Tithi is Shashti and Nakshatra is Anuradha.In the western world this star formation  is known to consist of three stars ( Beta, Delta and Pi Scorpionis ) . This star formation is entirely located within the constellation of Scorpion. If you examine the word root of Anuradha it can mean various things at various levels. One primary meaning of this star is the power to worship or Aradhana Shakti . This star formation is hence lorded by Mitra ( form of the sun god who imparts compassion , devotion and love ) and the Planet lording this nakshatra is Saturn. The symbol for this star formation is a archway or lotus flower.The symbolism of the lotus depicts the ability to flower even in difficult cirumstances or problems in life.

Also within this star formation lies the star called Alpha Centauri and the speciality of this star is that it is the closest star to our solar system.  Anuradha natives are usually very loving by nature ,respect themselves and others . The guna of this nakshatra is deva guna and the animal symbol for the nakshatra is a female deer. The star gives the ability to form friendships and relationships without disregarding the role of dharma in one’s life. It is also an Nakshatra that encourages one to serve the divine through service. Anuradha natives also will have strong organizational skills and are usually blessed with good health and vitality.

The negative traits of this Nakshatra are primarily due to its location in the constellation of Scorpio which is the place where the natal moon gets its debilitation state. The negative sides are jealousy and the desire to control others. Also if one’s moon is debilitated in Anuradha there could occur an interest in the negative side of Occult arts and melancholy nature towards life in general.
