Vishakha Nakshatra - Seeking Balance

Known as the “Star of Purpose”, Vishakha nakshatra is the 16th lunar station for the moon. It is also known as “Radha”, the love interest of Lord Krishna. The deity of this nakshatra is “Indragni”, which is a combination of the mighty God heads, “Indra Dev” and “Agni Dev”. It brings duality to this nakshatra. It is a junction between rain and fire. Vishakha nakshatra has been given two symbols as it is represented as being two-branched or forked; “Triumphal archway (a standing structure that you usually see as an entrance to a monument or in the middle of a road)” and “Potter’s wheel”. The symbols indicate success, achievements and progress. Jupiter, the ruling planet of this nakshatra, is a messenger of the God of fire (Indragni) and teaches lessons to humankind. It also adds enthusiasm, faith, and zeal to this nakshatra. Alongside being one of the sharpest people, they believe in religion and non-violence.
