Punarvasu – The Bow

Punarvasu (20.00 Gemini-3.20 Cancer) is ruled by the Mother Goddess, Aditi. This nakshatra constitutes the root of the energy of Jupiter and translates into the reappearance of goodness. Punarvasu is signified by abode, homecoming, residence, recurrence etc.

The idea of visible infinity is also conveyed by Punarvasu and it has all the desirable qualities. It gives one an impression of a positive renovation from darkness to light. In fact, the interplay of opposites is the essence of this nakshatra.

Behavioral Characteristics

Punarvasu relates to ‘vastuva prapana shakti’ which refers to the power of retrieving objectives or objects. Triumph, renewal and return are indicated by the reference to the regenerative capacity of rain. Punarvasu loves to nurture and harmonize when after a shower, the earth rejuvenates. Hence, the natives of Punarvasu are satisfied people who believe in getting rid of negative energies through hard work. They believe in overcoming obstacles through self-confidence.

The fascinating function of the emotional and mental is something from which Punarvasu derives its strength. The natives are characterized with reason and it represents a state when a child grows out of its mischief to become aware of others’ needs. They are good natured and friendly and the age 9-12 is also ideal for all kinds of spiritual introductions. In fact, Punarvasu relates to spirituality that engenders self-realization. Natives with Punarvasu in the ascendant have an average build and look serene and benevolent. They are pleasant, amiable, and noble.

The simplicity of their views prevents Punarvasu natives from understanding complications, although they succeed in emerging unscathed from accidents, diseases and physical malfunctions. They are homesick, but are willing to travel. On the flip side, natives of this nakshatra tend to stagnate. On the brighter side, Punarvasu loves challenges and almost always succeeds.

The opposing nature of Pollux and Castor give them a duality that gives them a contradictory character. While Castor results in losses, Pollux is responsible for retrieving them and thus the insinuation at recycling and regeneration. Punarvasu is the root word for ‘pun’, ‘puny’, and ‘punitive’ and ‘punctual’, all of which signify the aspects of this nakshatra.

Padas or Quarters

 The first pada falls on the Aries Navamsa which is ruled by Mars. It stands for adventure, motion and pioneering. The focus lies on group work, attainment of goals and friendship.

 The second pada falls on the Taurus Navamsa which is ruled by Venus. It stands for the earthy, fixed and materialistic elements. It is usually associated with hotels, restaurants, import-export industry and tourism.

The third pada falls on the Gemini Navamsa which is ruled by Mercury. It stands for imagination, science and mental activities. Being a Vargottama pada, planets produce strong results, especially in the intellectual and mental realm.

 The fourth pada falls on the Cancer Navamsa which is ruled by the Moon. It stands for strength and beneficence. The planets in this stage are Vargottama and Pushkara resembling expansiveness, maternity, nurturing spirit and care that bring out the aspects of Punarvasu to the fullest. Jupiter is exalted at its peak here.
