Dhanishta nakshatra is the 23rd lunar station for the moon. Suppose we fragment the word “Dhanishta”; we find that it is made from combining two words - “Dhan”, meaning “wealth”, and “Nishta”, which means “residing”. It clearly indicates that this nakshatra focuses on the “showering of wealth and fortune” on the natives. It is about the ones who are the wealthiest or the most heard of. With “Khyapayitri Shakti” and “Eight Vasus” as the deity of the nakshatra, the natives are gifted with the power of fame and abundance. And “Mars”, the ruling planet, gives “strength” and “fearlessness”.
It is interesting to know that Dhanishta nakshatra is also called a musical nakshatra. That’s because people born under it are inclined towards music and arts. And with this, we come to the symbol of Dhanishta nakshatra, a “Musical drum” which indicates rhythm, music, dance and connection with the divine. No wonder it’s called the “Star of Symphony ''. Moreover, Dhanishta nakshatra bridges two zodiac signs when the moon travels between Capricorn 23.20’ to Aquarius 6.40’ during an individual’s birth.

Dhanishta nakshatra Rasi or Zodiac signs are Capricorn and Aquarius, as mentioned earlier. The first and second quarters of the nakshatra cover Capricorn, while the third and fourth quarters cover Aquarius.
Let us see the characteristics of both zodiacs under Dhanishta nakshatra individually.
Capricorns are different from the crowd. They are brave and do not fear taking a stand for the right things. They are intelligent and thoughtful. Their sensibility makes them part of a mature zodiac sign. They follow the mantra of “pause, think and act”. They are very careful towards their work, family and friends. Circumstances make them strong and independent at an early age. They tend to expand their knowledge as much as possible and attend foreign universities for higher studies. They wish to use this knowledge to contribute to society, mainly through tech.
Aquarius is an intelligent zodiac sign. Aquarius borns have strong determination and willpower. They have an idealistic approach to life. They are inclined towards social work and believe in charity. They do not make plans, but they dream. And they carry the courage to fulfil them. You learn a lot through them. They never boast about their talent and achievements and take you by surprise when they suddenly receive recognition.
Rahu is representative of Fame, Foreign Land, Wealth, Rule breaker, Obsession, Desires, Intoxication, Creativity, Movies, Materialism, Cheat, Dissatisfaction, Confusion.
Whereas, Dhanista is symbolic of Wealth, Luxury, Celebrity. When Rahu gets in Dhanishta Nakshatra, everything falls out of proportions. These combinations either create situations where a person is born in a very wealthy and rich family or else they create wealth through their hard work. Rahu can bring gains and income from foreign lands too. From a materialistic point of view, this combination is too good; it will bring great ups in life. But, when it comes to relationships this combination may bring a lot of confusion and may be a scenario of cheating too.

The natives of this nakshatra tend to take their success and recognition to their heads and forget to remain grounded. The Ketu in Dhanishta nakshatra makes them extremely egoistic. If they don’t practise the habit of being humble and have compassion at heart, they may get extremely argumentative, opinionated and full of themselves. Due to their changing nature, they may lose out on friends and family. They tend to turn to mean, and their fearlessness gets them into alcoholism and smoking habits.
