#4. Full Flower Moon in Vishakha Nakshatra
This excerpt about Vishakha Nakshatra is from my new book Vedic Astrology for Beginners: An Introduction to the Origins and Core Concepts of Jyotish:
Deity: Indragni Star(s): Alpha Librae, Beta Librae, Gamma Librae, and Iota Librae Symbol: Triumphal Archway Shakti: The Power of Achievement and Manifestation Quality: Mixed VD Planetary Period Lord: Jupiter
Indra and Agni are a dimorphic pair—a single body with two heads. Vishakha means “the forked shape,” and this is symbolized by the two gods who are joined to one body. These two powerful gods support the shakti of this nakshatra to achieve and manifest, although results may not be experienced right away. Indra, the warrior and king of the gods, can be very indulgent, and he has a love of luxury, pleasure, and egoistic activities.
*More on Vishakha and the other Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology for Beginners.* Full Moon endings in Vishakha Nakastra is excellent for completing projects, displaying leadership, focusing on goals to achieve one's objectives.
