As a result, while Shukra (Venus) makes these people beautiful with an artistic mind, the Chandra (Moon) endows them with gentle, dignified manners. Vrishabha also happens to be the exalted sign of Chandra (Moon). It is said that even a beggar born on this Nakshatra will have a dignified appearance.

These people will have to control their stubborn nature if they want to work in groups or be in professions that require dealing with people. Keeping a flexible mindset will always help them.

A Shukra (Venus) placed in a movable sign will make the native spendthrift to enjoy material comforts. Females born in this Nakshatra tend to display whatever riches they have.

These people are ideally suited for any kind of artistic work and the jobs or businesses dealing with juicy and sweet materials. But these people should exercise extra caution while dealing with their business partners.

They are attached to the mother's side of family tree. Since the Chandra (Moon) rules the mind, living a tension free life is important for them. These people are prone to suffer from hormonal imbalances caused by mental worries.
