Nakshatras in Astrology

Punarvasu Nakshatra in Astrology: Features, Padas, and Remedies

According to astrology, the Punarvasu Nakshatra bestows optimism, self-assurance, honesty, an overly simple life, and a tendency to live in the present. The local is cheerful and funny, sweet-spoken, a lover of harmony, outgoing, amiable, and good-natured. One of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology is Punarvasu 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.

House is the symbol

A house serves as Punarvasu’s emblem. The house suggests that the Jeeva either acquired a new home or a body.

Deity: Aadhithi the Goddess

By feeding the offerings to the twins of Punarvasu, Aadhithi, the creator of the universe and its parent, raises them. Goddess Aadhithi is the presiding deity of Punarvasu Nakshathra. Aadhithi is composed of the words “aadhi” (the start) and “ethi” (end). It refers to the individual who exists both at the start and the end. She is the mother of all Gods and the wife of the sage Kashyapa.

Twelve of the 33 sons that Aadhithi and the sage Kashyapa have are known by the name Aadhithya. She is also Indhra’s mother, the god. It seems from the description that the Earth also goes by the name Aadhithi. She is a place where seeds can grow into seedlings, and those seedlings can become plants.

This time frame corresponds to the egg’s ovulation in the case of the pregnancy cycle. Aadhithi is also known as the mother of the sun, the five senses, importance, ego, and the eight sons. She is a Goddess of salvation and a giver of happiness. Her halo illuminates the world. She is the embodiment of unadulterated human emotion. She takes away all aches, pains, and sins.

Goddess Aadhithi is a Punarvasu Nakshatra deity.

Punarvasu Nakshatra characteristics in astrology

  • The female cat is the Punarvasu Nakshatra’s animal. In comparison to a male cat, a female cat is moodier, enjoys hunting, and is much more territorial.
  • They take pleasure in water, fresh food, and claw chewing. Because they are hunters and need to feel safe, wild cats prefer sleeping in dens to fluffy beds.
  • Dogs are not as intelligent as cats, who can easily open doors, the refrigerator, and any other space they choose.
  • A cat served as the ancient symbol of royalty. The cat was not only a symbol of royal status in the great culture of ancient Egypt, which is a few thousand years old, but also of mysticism.
  • Cats can see ghosts, give omens, and help their owners develop their psychic abilities. This is the reason why psychics with cats are so common in movies.
  • Cats are also defenders since they constantly rub up against you to clear your aura, and if any threat arises, they will protect you.
  • Natives of Punarvasu are the zodiac’s natural guardians. They always feel the need to defend their loved ones and the objects around them.
  • Punarvasu, the sign of Cancer in the zodiac, is prone to moodiness and inflexibility.
  • Fresh food and clean water must always be available to the natives.
  • These Indians are skilled hunters on the Gemini side, but on the Cancer side, they only hunt when it is absolutely required and never for sport.
  • Punarvasu natives always have a set target in their lives, which they always achieve, much like how cats zone to their target, whether it’s a rat, bird, or a snake in the backyard.
  • The birth star of Lord Rama, an Indian deity who was the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu, is Punarvasu.
  • A Punarvasu native’s life is merely a play-out of the Lord Rama myth.
  • Lord Rama was raised in a royal household and had a stepmother who preferred her own son (Bharata) to be the country’s next ruler.
  • By shattering the “Pinaka” bow of Shiva, which no one on earth could take up easily (a bow and arrow is the symbol of this Nakshatra), he earned the hearts of his wife (Sita) and father-in-law (Janaka).
  • When the time came for him to ascend to the throne, his stepmother Kaikeyi insisted on having him banished to the forest for 14 years so that her own son (Bharata) could succeed to the throne.
  • Being a noble man, Lord Rama had no desire for a kingdom, worldly pleasures, or an opulent lifestyle. Instead, he simply told his father that he would carry out Kaikeyi’s wishes and departed the realm.
  • The intelligent demon Ravan eventually kidnapped Sita as he was wandering the wilderness with his wife and younger brother Laxman.
  • To get Sita back, Rama enlisted the help of an army of celestial monkeys under the command of Hanuman.
  • By hurling boulders into the water to act as a bridge, they crossed into Sri Lanka.
  • Rama eventually overcame Ravana, won his wife back, and returned to his kingdom after serving out the remainder of his exile.
  • This is Punarvasu’s central concept (return of the light). Even in their darkest hour, these people always manage to rise and return to their position as king.
  • Rama and his wife were the subject of controversy because Sita was put to the fire god Agni’s test and was suspected of joining Ravan.
  • She passed the exam, but she was disappointed because her husband didn’t trust her to be loyal.
  • After giving birth to twin twins named Luv and Kush, Sita was brought back into the Earth due to continuous accusations and demands for a purity test.
  • The residents of this Nakshatra find themselves on a self-inflicted exile in life for at least 10–14 years where they feel like a vagabond, not knowing where they are going, what they are doing, and struggling, just as Rama had to take an exile on his own behalf even though he could have declined it.
  • A young person may simply wish to backpack around the globe, sleeping on hostel floors, eating whatever they can, and experiencing as much of the world as possible.
  • They frequently have many marriages or relationships because they worry that one of the partners—or girlfriends or boyfriends—is having an affair.
  • Along with the symbol of the light returning, Punarvasu represents recurring themes, hence these inhabitants must always repeat actions in order to succeed.
  • When these people experience failure in any initiative, business, or purpose, they shouldn’t give up on it after the initial failure since their second try at the same endeavour may succeed because it will become the theme of “Return of Light.”
  • President Donald Trump tried to run for president in 2012 but failed very fast. When he tried again in 2015, he went from announcement to the White House. Throughout his life, he filed for bankruptcy four times but always managed to stay ahead of the game.
  • The tale of Luv & Kush demonstrates that Punarvasu inhabitants have a good chance of becoming twins.
  • But they also enjoy having two of the same items in their personal lives, such as having two of the same statuses, desktops, tables, possessions, etc.
  • Since Rama and Sita were royal people wandering the Indian wilderness, they made every effort to find comfort. Lakshmana, in particular, worked to find the two of them the most comfortable place to sleep at night while he kept an eye out for intruders.
  • This brief story demonstrates how many Punarvasu locals enjoy bringing their own pillows on trips because they long for the luxurious comfort of their own homes.
  • Rama had a deep affection for and reverence for the natural world.
  • Even when he hunted deer in the woods to feed himself and his family, he prayed to them in gratitude for sacrificing their lives so he may eat.
  • Locals of Punarvasu take great pride in supporting charities, volunteering, and making donations.
  • Due to Aditi, the main plot of Punarvasu revolves around land, properties, and resorts.
  • She gave birth to the Vishnu avatar Vamana, whose sole request to the demon ruler Mahabali was for three steps of land. Mahabali was unaware of the child’s immense potential.
  • The youngster expanded to huge size, grabbed control of three separate universes in just three actions, and swept through all of the demons’ territories.
  • Natives of Punarvasu are constantly looking to enter the hotel or real estate industries.
  • This Nakshatra will also enable a person to market and sell other people’s goods, much like a merchandiser.
  • Spread up to 3’20” of cancer from 20’00” degrees Gemini (Mithun) (Karaka).
  • Punarvasu, which means return, renewal, restoration, or repetition, is derived from the words “Puna” and “Vasu.”
  • In Aditi’s womb, Kashyapa gave birth to the 12 Adityas.
  • Indra, Vishnu, Vaga, Twashta, Varun, Aryamana, Pusa, Mitra, Agni, Parjyanya, Vivaswan, and Dinakar are the 12 Vasus.
  • The mother, Aditi, of whom the Gods are born, is the repository of everything good – truth, generosity, magnanimity, purity, aristocracy, beauty, and renown. Therefore, this star is the origin of these virtues.
  • Punarvasu means to begin again after splitting apart, to begin a new life, and to return from a faraway place.
  • It represents freedom from constraint, limitation, and infinity.

Punarvasu Nakshatra is described in a Vedic astrology treatise.

  • Hora Sara predicts that people born under the sign of Purnavasu Nakshatra will be generous with their donations, happy, and endowed with positive traits, as well as stupid and ill. He will be somewhat wise and content with a meagre income.

Punarvasu Nakshatra’s caste

  • This Nakshatra belongs to the merchant caste.
  • The locals are the world’s natural businesspeople.
  • They understand how to entice someone in and keep them, how to negotiate and close deals, and—most importantly—how to maximise profits from transactions.
  • We all know Donald Trump as the real estate magnate and author of the book “The Art of the Deal” since his Saturn is in this Nakshatra.
  • A merchant is someone who understands how to offer what the general public needs. They are willing to pay for what someone needs or wants since they are aware of it.

The Punarvasu Nakshatra’s quality

  • Although many consider Punarvasu to be a chara nakshatra, doing chara rituals for other nakshatras, such as Swati or Shravana, is not advised because doing so will force you to repeat the ritual or move back and forth in order to complete it.
  • The public will frequent a business once it is first opened to the public, but that might be challenging because doing so means the firm might need to be shut down for a while before being reopened.

Punarvasu Nakshatra’s sound

  • The sound of the nakshatra, Ke- pada 1, Ko- pada 2, Haa- pada 3, and Hee- pada 4, is very significant.
  • Everything we do, say, buy, wear, and drive carries a brand label.
  • With a precise time of birth, one must examine their horoscope to see where the Gemini sign, or Punarvasu’s Nakshatra, is located.
  • When utilising such brands or names that start with such sounds would be beneficial for happiness, home, children, and pleasures, if someone is a Pisces ascendant, then the 4th house would be Gemini.
  • Overall, this is a terrific Nakshatra to activate, but keep in mind that there may be a failure the first time, but the light would return with extraordinary brightness. The last pada of Gemini falls into the Cancer sign, which for Pisces ascendant would be in the 5th house.
