Nakshatra of zodiac, spanning 26°40' in Mesha to 10°00' in Vrishabha. Its
first quarter falls in the Mesha (Aries), while the remaining three quarters fall in
Vrishabha. Accordingly, people with the moon in the first quarter show
aggressive tendencies of mars, while the people with the moon in the Vrishabha are more calm and steady, showing the characteristics of the plant Venus.
people are of middle stature with a commanding appearance. They are intelligent
yet a little proud. Proud side of the nature is prominent in case of natives
born in Vrishabha. They are a jack of all trade but master of none. And though
they can give the correct advice to people in need, they may not be able to
guide themselves in times of difficulty.
For these people,
their self-esteem is the important thing. They are too confident of themselves
and do not like to be criticized. They are generally honest and do not like to
use unfair means to achieve their objectives. They have a desire to be free of
any obligations, financially or morally. If the Sūrya in their chart also happens
to be in a fiery sign, theses people possess excellent stamina and conviction
to pursue their goals. They are not satisfied and they will not rest till they
achieve what they want. While they are orthodox by nature, they do not follow
the traditions blindly. They like to travel. These people tend to get legacies.
These people get
frustrated very easily, which leads to their provocation. And once they loose
their cool, it is difficult to control them. Their behavior when provoked can
be really dangerous when some explosive planet like Mars or Pluto is placed in
any of the fiery signs.
The urge to be
free of any obligations or bonds means these people can seldom work in
subordinate positions. But a government job suits them, as it carries the royal
powers and authority, which is a feature of Sūrya, the lord of this Nakshatra.
Their desire to work at their own speed sometimes results in others believing
that they are lazy.

time he does not like to achieve name, fame and wealth through unfair means or
at the mercy of others. His needs or wants are not beyond reason nor his
accumulations always spectacular, although his money making abilities are often
phenomenal, his motivation however derives from an emphatic wish to remain free

monotheism are combined in him i.e. while he is orthodox he does not believe in
age-old blind belief and customs. Persistent effort and hard work are his
