Mars, planet of energy and action, is in Uttara Bhadrapada from May 21st 2022.
This nakshatra within the zodiacal sign of Pisces is known for benevolence and renunciation, and its symbol is the front legs of a bed, or a person facing both ways. It gives you an intelligent and inquiring nature and a focus on the finer things in life, where your passions and anger pour into spirituality and the arts.
Mars operates more subtly here than its usual heads-down style, and you find ways of succeeding that avoid open conflict. Uttara gives you powers of speech and oratory, which shows you at your most persuasive – use your grasp of psychology and discover how to handle people and appeal to their better side.
You may call on a kind of manipulation to get your way, but all with the best of intentions, and everybody wins in the end.
This nakshatra is ruled by Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the depths, which shows you getting into emotional sharing and a complete immersion in spirituality – Ahirbudhnya is the embodiment of the coiled kundalini energy at the base of the spine, which favours yoga practice and meditation, and you may be surprised by the intensity of an awakening moment.
As well as psychic practice, the Shakti, or special energy, of this nakshatra is for Bringing Rain, which is linked to money-making and fertility – Uttara’s charitable side is energized by your crusading energy.
Mars also joins with its planetary friend Jupiter through this transit, peaking on May 28th, which gives you extraordinary vision and capacity for belief. You over-achieve with the minimum of effort and leave every situation better than when you found it.
