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 final constellation.


Behavioral Characteristics


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 penetrating eyes.


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.

Jyeshta natives should worship Lord Vishnu, or fierce female deities like Durga and Kali, and chant the root mantra “Om Dham” 108 times during the lunar transition of this nakshatra to alleviate afflictions. Wearing blue, light blue, dark green, black and red is also recommended. All important actions should correspond to the course of this constellation for best results.




In the words of Varahamihira, the lunar influence gives Jyeshta a furious appearance, lust and responsibility.Hollywood actor Al Pacino is a Jyeshta native who has donned a lot of mafia roles.
