About Vishakha Nakshatra Characteristics, Padas and More…

Overview of Vishakha Nakshatra in Astrology

Vishakha Nakshatra is the junction point between materialism and spiritualism. It is called a ‘Star of Purpose’. However, Vishakha natives are one-pointed, determined, and strong-willed individuals.

Vishakha is the only Nakshatra in the entire zodiac circle where there is both an exalted and a debilitated planet. The exalted planet is Saturn, and the mindful planet Moon is debilitated. This creates the transformative movement in a native’s life, where he/she learns to develop disciplinary behaviour, stability, emotional resilience and rise above worldly pleasure.

If you are born under Vishakha Nakshatra, then your deity is Indragni, known as ‘Devta Dwangas’. This means one body with two heads – one head of Lord Indra and the other of Lord Agni. Both endow the native with both sides of a coin – light and dark, pros & cons.

Vishakha natives usually get delayed success but assured one. Initially, their life is like a roller coaster for them, but they are likely to bounce back in the end. When they start burning their lower passions into higher consciousness, their life starts manifesting fruits of life.

In the zodiac wheel, Vishakha Nakshatra is connected to the Libra & Scorpio signs.
