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 affairs.

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 particular field.

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.

Male Natives

1. Physical feature: He will have a beautiful and stout body, tall, moderate complexion, thin legs and long arms.

2. Character 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.

3. Education, 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.

4. Family life : 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.

2. Character and general events : She is very intelligent. She takes keen interest in the social work. Mentally always alert, quick-witted, selfish.

She is educated, fond of fine arts. She will have children and devotes to her husband. Acquires considerable wealth. Enjoys good food. She will be lucky to have ornaments and fine clothing. She is greedy for wealth.

3. Education, sources of earnings / profession : Attains good knowledge in the mechanical or electrical engineering, telephones, electronics etc. It may become surprising that being a female native, how she is more interested in the jobs that are normally done by males.

4. Family life : Even after marriage, she keeps busy in various activities. She keeps her 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.
