Vishakha nakshatra

Just as the branches of a tree spread, so are the people of Vishakha Nakshatra, who have the quality of being conservative as well as being open to new ideas.

Vishakha Nakshatra is the 16th Nakshatra in the Zodiac belt, spanning from 20°00′ Libra to 03°20′ Scorpio, with Jupiter as its ruling planet. It is also known as the Star of Purpose.

The nakshatra is also represented as ‘thorny’ or ‘two-branched,’ a symbol of duality in its nature. The descendants of Agni, the natives of Vishakha Nakshatra are full of vigour and vitality. They represent the best of both worlds. Along with being a believer in conservative ways, they are also great at adopting new and progressive ways of life.

The glimpse of Vishakha Nakshatra

Jupiter is their ruling planet and we can see that effect in them too.

They are prone to drug and alcohol addictions, and they are also totally self. Instead of appreciating what they have, they are always obsessed with what they do not have!

Vishakha is ruled by Nakshatra, Indra and Agni which signifies power, status and authority. Hence this nakshatra also has the same characteristics as its ruling forces. Vishakha Nakshatra is known to denote purpose.

Visakha Nakshatra natives have optimistic personalities and thus bring a sense of joy and celebration wherever they go. They respect the opinions of others and give them due importance and consideration, and this behavioural trait makes them good listeners and learners. They are religious, but they do not blindly follow religious rituals and procedures, are prone to drug and alcohol addictions, and are also extremely self-conscious. Instead of appreciating what they have, they are always focused on what they do not have!


Positive indications

This Nakshatra’s inhabitants are quick and eager to learn new things; as a result of this positive trait, they prefer more inclination towards modern practises and dislike orthodox procedures and beliefs. They have a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and they are very focused. One of their positive characteristics is their determination to do something they have decided to do, and they will work extremely hard and go to any length to achieve their goals.

Negative Characteristics 

When describing the negative characteristics of natives of this nakshatra, it is important to note that due to their intense focus on achieving their goals, any negative influence on them may lead to them succumbing to unsocial elements and practices such as drug abuse, sex, and alcohol addiction. They are restless by nature and are never satisfied with their accomplishments. This negative trait may lead to frustration and constant worry about what they lack, rather than enjoying what they have.

Vishaka residents have an odd habit of making simple things complicated and the other way around, and they frequently achieve their goals by creating problems and obstacles for themselves. Their never-ending search for something new leads them to the profound truth.
