The 23th Nakshatra: DHANISHTA.
The four quarters are ruled by:
Sūrya (Sun) - the 1st quarter,
Buddha (Mercury) - the 2nd quarter,
Shukra (Venus) - the 3rd quarter,
and Mangala (Mars) - the 4th quarter.
Other aspects of this Nakshatra:
Purushardha (life's vector or motivation) is Dharma.
Totem animal is Lion (female).
Symbol - Mridanga (musical drum) or flute.
Devata (Deity) - Ashtavasu.
Dosha - Pitta.
This Nakshatra is
owned by the fiery planet Mangala (Mars). This Nakshatra spans from 23°20' in Makara (Capricorn) to
6°40' in Kumbha (Aquarius). While the first half of this Nakshatra falls in the sign
Makara (Capricorn), the other half falls in the sign Kumbha (Aquarius). Though both these signs are
owned by the same Graha (planet), Shani (Saturn), the characteristics of both these signs
differ. Accordingly, the results seen in case of a person born in the Nakshatra
Dhanistha with Makara (Capricorn) as the sign will be different form the person born in
Dhanishta with Kumbha (Aquarius) as the sign.
People born in
this Nakshatra are lean and tall, with good ability to resist contagious
diseases. Females born in this Nakshatra always look younger than their actual
age. Dhanishta born are intelligent, versatile and like to keep themselves
engaged in a variety of tasks. They are straight minded, do not like to harm
others and in turn, expect that nobody should harm them. But the practical life
is not that simple. So when the reality strikes, these people get angry and are
determined to crush the offender with all their might. But they also have the
wisdom to wait for the best opportunity to avenge the damage. If that is not
possible in the immediate future, they keep in mind their task and carry it out
at an appropriate time.
These people are
well educated. For those born in the sign Kumbha (Aquarius), scientific inquiry is the way
of life. For them, the profession is also mostly related with science. Earnings through profession/service assume a
significant part of their income only around the age of 30 years. Good academic
record, street-smart intelligence and a knack for administration make these
people an ideal candidate for holding public offices.
A Dhanishta born
is seldom happy with his relatives. But his wife knows how to deal with the troubled
relations and make the matters simple. These people need to take proper care of
their health, as they tend to neglect their health problems till they reach the
Normally, the native has a lean body with lengthy figure. In exceptional cases
there are some natives with stout figure.
and general events: He will be expert in all the works he undertakes. He has extremely
intelligent mind and all-round knowledge. He does not like to cause any trouble
to others "Manasa, Vacha or Karmana" (by mind, by word or by work).
However, it has been seen that he has religious spirit. He always like to live
with his own caliber and effort. He dislikes to express his disagreement with
others till the last moment. Most of us are probably aware of the elephant's
revenge. That is, if any person or any animal cause trouble to the elephant,
the elephant waits for an opportunity to bounce upon them. In the same way
Dhanishta born also waits for an opportunity to bounce upon others with whom he
has to settle a score.
sources of earning/profession: A number of horoscopes examined by me have revealed
that most of the scientists and historians are born in this Nakshatra. Since
there is an inherent talent of keeping secret, the native is quite suitable for
secret service, private secretaries to the senior executives. Whatever may be
his academic background his intelligence is beyond questionable. In argument
also he is much ahead of others. Hence lawyers profession is the best for him.
Normally, period from 24th years of age onwards will show progress in the
earning field. Since he will be engaged in the profession or trade where he has
to trust others, he should be very very careful before putting trust on others.
the family circle also he will be the uppermost administrator. His relatives
will cause a lot of embarrassment and problems. He is more inclined to his
brothers and sisters. He will have ample inherited property subject to the placement
of planets in beneficial position. He cannot have much benefit from his
in-laws. But this drawback will be nullified due to the presence of good
qualities in his wife. His wife will be an incarnation of "Lakshmi"
(goddess of wealth). To be more specific, any improvement in the financial
field of the native will be only after the marriage.
5. Health: His health may not be so good.
Even then he will not think of his own health. It is only when the disease
reach at the peak he starts finding remedy. Slightest improvement out of the
severest disease will drag him to the work field. He is prone to whooping
cough, anemia etc. However, he will not be on a prolonged state of illness.
Females born in this
Nakshatra will also enjoy more or less the same results mentioned above.

congenial atmosphere in the home front.

of education. Some are interested in literature and some in sciences. Hence
