Sun, planet of spirit and self-expression, is in Purva Phalguni ‘the previous red one’, from August 31st to September 13th 2023.

This nakshatra falls inside zodiacal Leo where the Sun is strong and at home, though Purva’s symbol of a Hammock gives you a laid-back style, which is at odds with the sign’s usual fiery heroics. You are relaxed, good company and have your priorities straight, though your unhurried attitude can tip over into pure laziness.

Still, you are focused when you have a compelling target to work towards, like a Lion, which only springs into action and hunts when there is need for food. Purva’s ruling deity is Aryaman, one of the Adityas, who is famed for qualities of leadership and integrity, and possesses a power over married life.

People are drawn to your relaxed but confident approach in relationship, and you can make a creative situation by being totally in the moment. Take care of getting dragged into a romantic scenario that grows up around you, however, and focus your core energy, otherwise a constant pleasure-loving pursuit becomes draining.

This asterism’s Shakti, or special power, for ‘Procreation’ has an obvious link with parenthood, but also shows you crossing your talents with a friend or collaborator to create something more than you could on your own. Your leisurely style is challenged by the gaze of karmic Saturn through this whole transit, which gives you a sense of urgency and professionalism, where important business may rest on your actions.

Make people in authority know you understand the issues, and with extra responsibility also comes greater personal power and influence.
