Jyeshta – The Umbrella
Jyeshta (16.40-30.00 Scorpio) is ruled by the Ruler of Gods,
Lord Indra. The name literally translates into the elder one or the senior one
and it holds true for that which is characterized by supreme glory.
Indra is the protector of heroes and it is he who is the
divine slayer and warrior. Vedic astrologers are of the opinion that at some
point of time, there were 18 nakshatras used and Jyeshta happened to be the
Jyeshta is governed by a sense of becoming or arrival. In
fact, it completes the second series of nine nakshatras starting with Magha. The
latter series of nakshatras are more concerned with activities on an earthly
plane. For Jyeshta, it is important to maintain an image. The natives do all
they can to impress others and maintain the respect of other people. In the
desire to abide by the established norms, Jyeshta is a good performer where charity,
philanthropy, respect and kindness are concerned. Thus, it is said that Jyeshta
in ancient times commanded the respect of society.
Presently, when the world is characterized with excesses of
materialism, Jyeshta at times drives its energy towards useless material
pursuits that tend towards self destruction. Hence, the Jyeshta characters are
manifested as corrupt politicians, stereotyped mob leaders, bureaucratic
managers and the like. Persons with the Jyeshta asterism mature quickly both
physically as well as mentally. Their appearances are usually well proportioned
in accordance with the need for harmony. However, they cannot hold on to their
youth for a long time. The best feature of their physique is their probing and
Natives of Jyeshta tend to see their woes as larger than
life. Hence, they are often found complaining, moaning and groaning. A strong
influence of the energy of Jyeshta is the African continent, and hence it is no
wonder that the musical genre of The Blues have found their roots here. Jyeshta
natives are also vindictive and vengeful. Jyeshta is also protective of the
weak, and can go to any lengths to protect the underprivileged, and are guided by
the elite forces.
Padas or Quarters
The first pada falls on the Sagittarius
Navamsa which is ruled by Jupiter. The focus is on financial interests and a
rapid swing from one state of finances to another. Natives need to take an
easier approach towards money. Natives are enthusiastic towards acquiring
higher education and knowledge. Jyeshta is naturally secretive, but can leak out
secrets through the frankness that is a characteristic of Sagittarius. Natives take
risks and are more generous than other Jyeshta padas. Chaivalry is displayed in
terms of protecting their kin. They also have a sense of humor. Mars, Sun, Ketu
and Jupiter are strong with the last planet providing the best results. Planets
are not good for the wellness of the native’s siblings.
The second pada falls on the
Capricorn Navamsa which is ruled by Saturn. The quarter is responsible and is
known for doing the right things. The natives are very protective and challenge
others, producing authority type figures. Selfish, materialistic, vengeful and
stingy, the native can be ruthless in approaching others. Mentally and
physically mature from an early age, the individual has an authoritative voice.
Overbearing and serious, the pada takes time to realize its goals which are achievable
only after a lot of hard work. Natives are stern, slow and cautious here. Natives
should be cautious of too much melancholy, skepticism and negative attitude.
Saturn and Mars provide authority to the individuals. Planets might affect the
health and wellness of younger siblings.
The third pada falls on the Aquarius
Navamsa which is ruled by Saturn. Natives are humanitarian and have social concerns.
They have a tendency to guard the underdog, serving causes and protecting
others. They can also make sacrifices to protect others. The pada has a
penchant for mysticism and occult science with their way with maintaining
family values. They also love describing their personal philosophy to others. Individuals
can get caught up in weird sexual encounters. Mercury, Venus, Rahu and Saturn
are strong. Planets can affect the health of the mother.
The fourth pada falls on the
Pisces Navamsa which is ruled by Jupiter. Natives are emotional and get carried
away, indulging too much in fantasy, intoxication and sexual intrigue. The
individual might be able to stream their emotions into creative expression,
having their own definition of responsibility, protectiveness etc. Natives tend
to maximize their woes and at the same time display a strong and sacrificing spiritual
nature towards humanity. The person is fond of kids and defends others’ rights
and takes an interest in exploring the occult. However, one of the major
drawbacks is that Jyestha cannot function appropriately here as the penance
aspect is lacking. However, the ability of material prosperity is strong here
with benefices like Venus and Jupiter. Mars is poor, and so is Saturn which
provides material adversity, but is efficient in lending spiritual discipline.
In its negative avatar, the pada is self-destructive.
