Kumbha (Aquarius) is both the water-bearer and the water flowing from the pitcher. Water stands for the cosmic life force, the universal solvent which quenches the thirst of all and transmutes base metal into gold; it absolves the individual from all sins and purifies his heart. Under this sign, the evolving soul hopes to be a conscious cooperator with the universal creative power. This generally involves the sacrifice of personal comfort, pleasure, and convenience, thus causing considerable suffering. In Indian metaphysical thought kumbha, the pitcher, is associated with human existence. The physical body is compared to a pitcher. The shape of a pitcher is at first conceived in the mind of the potter. In the same manner, the final destiny of a man is carved out for him by God. Water conserved in a pitcher sustains life by quenching human thirst or irrigating plants. A human individual is also intended to help and guide others towards their fulfillment. This is the essential characteristic of Kumbha (Aquarius).

Esoterically, the sign represents the release of the universal life force contained in an individual. Water flowing from a pitcher appropriately suggests this process. In order to become a conscious cooperator with the universal creative power, the individual's restrictive barriers must be broken, which is by no means a happy experience. Wherever Kumbha (Aquarius) appears, there is reaction and opposition. Difficulties arise. Material propensities become more intense in opposition to the impulse and the consequent frustration is greatly heightened. Exoterically, therefore, this sign is considered inauspicious and unfortunate, bestowing frustrating results.

Kumbha (Aquarius) is masculine, airy and fixed. It is owned by Shani (Saturn), but the sign does not provide suitable conditions either for exaltation or debilitation of any planet. The effect of this sign is purposive, effective and deep acting. It does not simply provide conditions under which others can act, but has its own direction. Under this sign the turmoil in one's life is immensely increased as the individual begins to work in accordance with the divine plan and annihilate his personal ego. In this task, Shani (Saturn) is ruthless in achieving its goal. It completely destroys traditional moorings. The influence of Kumbha (Aquarius) is primarily on the psychological plane. The effect is also consolidated so that it becomes permanent. The name of the sign also has a relationship with kumbhaka, meaning holding the breath in yogic practices whereby the individual hopes to link himself with the Supreme. This sign orients the individual towards attaining this goal.

Specific actions and works that should be initiated during Chandra in Vishakha: art, handicraft, ornaments, clothes; iron & steel works; dance, music; transportation, chariot, travelling; tying of animals; attack; trading; medicine making & trading; juices; collection of food-grain & articles.
