The Sun, symbol of light and Self, is in Purva Bhadrapada from March 5th to 18th, the nakshatra that lies across the zodiacal signs of Aquarius and Pisces.

Your energy and focus take on a new urgency, and Purva Bhadrapada’s Shakti, Power of Spiritual Fire, gives this period a ritual, cleansing quality. Purva’s ruling deity, Ajaikapada, is a form of Rudra, the Storm God, which in this case represents a fire-storm or sacrifice – chanting, meditation and fasting are precious for self-development, as long as you don’t take this attitude too far.

This nakshatra’s other symbol is the front side of a Bed or Cot, which shows you clearing old baggage as much as gathering new status and possessions. Try to tie up old business before moving on with a new effort – any hasty, short term decision may reverberate for longer than you realize, and you are left to handle the fallout.

By transit, the Sun illuminates wherever it lands, and sunlight is the most powerful antiseptic, so you can beam a light into the dark and unconscious corners of your world. You may encounter pushy characters who hide their personal agendas, and though some stop at nothing to succeed, don’t respond in the same way.

The attention of an authority figure also limits your freedom in the earlier part of this transit, but you work through any interference and emerge with a clearer knowledge of your resilience and professional boundaries.

The Sun also moves together with quick-thinking Mercury up to March 15th, and you have extra ego invested in your ideas and communication.

Speak up in a group situation at this point, especially if you have an offbeat or uncomfortable opinion – you may say something that others think but don’t dare express.
