Jyeshta Nakshatra in Astrology: Features, Padas, and Remedies

The term “Jyeshta” means “older,” “senior,” “first,” or “the chief.” Antares is Jyeshta’s yogatara. The nearest OB association’s brightest, most massive, and most evolved star member is Antares. In the next million years, Antares will likely have a supernova explosion since it is nearing the conclusion of its life.

Because their husband, Soma, favoured Rohini, who is younger than her, she felt betrayed and resentful. One of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras in Vedic astrology is Jyeshta Nakshatra (or the Nakshatras, which have their mouths curved). These Nakshatras are favourable for starting and finishing projects involving roads, dams, the expansion of metals, chariots, boats, etc.

An earring serves as Jyeshtha’s emblem. This shows that the ability to respond to sounds and the development of ear nerves at this time.

God: The Indra

He is constantly terrified that someone will usurp his throne. His weakness is becoming lost in music, dance, and the pleasures of heaven.
