This is the 5th
Nakshatra of the zodiac, spanning from 23°20' in Vrishabha to 6°40' in
Mithuna. Its first two quarters fall in the sign Vrishabha while the last two
quarters fall in the sign Mithuna. Accordingly, the characteristics of people
born in first two quarters are different form the people born in the last two
quarters. But a general picture of these natives is given below.
People born in this
Nakshatra have a strong body and moderate complexion. Those born in the Vrishabha will have a fair complexion compared to those born in the Mithuna.
They are sincere
in their behavior towards others and expect that others should also behave in
the same way. But this seldom happens. As a result, there are chances that this
native may get cheated very often, especially from the people close to him.
When this happens, these people find it difficult to come to term with the
situation. They do not like being manipulated or cheated by others. When this
happens, they may harbor a tendency to take revenge.
They are peace
loving by nature, but provoking them will be dangerous. They have a good
grasping power, can quickly learn new things and have a creative nature.
These people are
honest, straightforward and contrary to most of the people born in Vrishabha,
tend to live a simple life. But they find it difficult to make up their mind on
important decisions, as a result of which they have to go the trial and error
way. This is why they take more time to settle down in life.
Females born in
this Nakshatra like to control their husbands. They try to keep themselves busy
in some way after the marriage and like to have an upper hand in the domestic
These people get
good education. For those born with their moon in Mithuna, a career in
accountancy is a good option. For those born in the Vrishabha, their good
business sense is often proved useful in complementing their education. But
they have to try many lines of profession before they settle down in a
These people are
misunderstood many times by those whom they love. Their partners have health
troubles and there is also some tension in marital relations. When it comes to
health, these natives are prone to suffer form acidity and constipation.
will have a beautiful and stout body, tall, moderate complexion, thin legs and
and general events: There is a peculiar tendency seen in him. He has a doubting nature. He
is always suspicious of everything. He is very sincere in his dealings with
others and he expects the same reciprocal sincerity nature others find it
pleasant to deal with him. But a word of precaution is necessary here that he
has to be very careful while dealing with his friends and relatives as also in
any partnership business as he may be cheated. Blind trust put on others will
quite often lead him into later frustration and repentance.
He has a knack to
deal with even those who ditch him. He has a natural initiative, awareness,
brilliancy of mind, eagerness and active agility, but as a result of his
affectionate regard for others, he is buffeted by both circumstances and people.
He is very simpleton.
He prefers a life of simplicity and principled. He always expresses impartial
and sincere opinion. He can be impatient to the point of intolerance when
confronted with prejudice , judgment or action by others. While he expresses to
others opinion, it is never brought into his life. He acts according to his own
sweet will. Outwardly expresses to the public that it is very courageous and
will not hesitate to do anything which requires extreme courage, whereas he is
an inborn coward.
He will not have
peace of mind and get irritated even on small matters. His life up to 32 years
of age will be full of trials and errors and would appear to be like a lost
boat in the center of the ocean i.e., the question of where to go, how to go
and why to go will permanently rampage his mind without any conclusion. His
32nd age onwards, life will start settling down down to the maximum
satisfaction provided other planetary positions are good.
sources of earning / profession : He will have good education. He is a very good
financial adviser. He advises others to curb the spending but he cannot control
the expenditure and at last finds himself in the extreme economic conflict. He
achieves success in life, including business if engaged after the age of 32
years. Till that time he has to face several ups and downs. He often begins
projects rather than finishing the tediously routine tasks of the one in hand.
It is mainly due to percipience rather than weakness and above all his ability
to understand the possibility of success or no success of a project in hand,
discard it immediately and replaces it immediately and replaces it with another
which is more viable. In other words, he cannot undertake any permanent or
continuing nature of work.
Period between 33
years and 50 years will be a period of full of strength and activities followed
by utmost satisfaction. During this period he can achieve the benefits
unexpectedly. But whatever he will be earning during this period will be wasted
later on due to his own fault.
No benefit will be derived from the co-borns. Co-borns will not only cause
troubles and problems to the native, but also maintain extreme enmity so as to
harm the native. His sincere love and affection will not have any any effect in
his relatives. In other words, the native is mistaken absolutely for no fault
of his own. That is why we are bound to believe the existence of God and the
relationship of stars over the human beings.
His spouse may not
keep good health. Moreover, his married life is not cordial, mainly due to
difference of opinion on silly matters, and the adamant nature of the native.
In some cases, it is seen that the reason for the disharmony between the couple
is mainly due to the better occupation in life by one of them, and the
consequent inferiority complex.
5. Health : He has to face ill-health
during his childhood. Frequent constipation ultimately leading to stomach
disorder, cuts and injuries, pains in the shoulders near collarbones.

that being a female native, how she is more interested in the jobs that are normally
done by males.

husband under her control. There may be one or two love affairs early in her
life, which has not culminated into marriage. However, after marriage she is
very much attached to her husband, as if nothing has taken place in the past.
