The Sun is in Punarvasu from July 6th until 20th, crossing the zodiacal signs of Gemini and Cancer.

Punarvasu’s symbol is a quiver full of arrows, which shows adventure through flights of thought and imagination. This nakshatra is ruled by Aditi, the Divine Mother who presides over fine personal qualities and infinity itself, and the Sun’s transit here brings development of character and a desire for new knowledge and wisdom.

Punarvasu is famed for its adaptable nature, fond of luxuries and poetry, and your adventures here are likely to be on the mental and spiritual level, or in the arts where you can deliver words – spoken or written – with power and strength.

Punarvasu is traditionally the birth nakshatra of Lord Rama, whose bow and arrow was symbolic of his character and destiny. The Sun is general karaka of kingship and at this time you may seek, or be thrust into, a leadership role or face important decisions which affect a larger group of people.

Your task is to balance your own needs with those of the group, and for integrity’s sake you must sometimes go against the majority opinion. This nakshatra’s association with renewal and replenishment is reflected in its Shakti of the ‘Power to Gain Wealth’, and you may find a new source of energy and inspiration at this time of year, both materially and spiritually.

Paths or ambitions which were left unexplored come back into your life, or else you complete a personal character-forming journey. A course or program of study that you left behind or made sacrifices to pursue comes full-circle and finally give its rewards.

July 17th sees the New Moon arriving in Punarvasu, and gives you an opportunity to affirm your intentions and make a new start.
