The Sun, planet of spirit and identity, is in Uttara Bhadrapada from March 17th to 31st 2021, the benevolent and spiritual nakshatra within the zodiacal sign of Pisces.
Uttara’s name translates to ‘beautiful left foot’, while its symbol is the back legs of a bed. It brings an intelligent and questioning nature with a focus on the finer things in life, where your life force is sublimated into spirituality and mental pursuits.
Uttara’s Shakti, or special power, is for Bringing Rain, which means fertilizing new ideas on one hand but with a link also to wealth creation – this asterism has a charitable side which is energized in this transit by the all-generous Sun.
This puts the onus on you to function in a subtler style without the need for the spotlight or ego-stroking, and you look for ways to success that avoid open challenge or rivalry. The Sun also sheds light wherever it is placed and here gives powers of speech and communication where you uncover hidden talents and powers of persuasion.
You are not blind to subtle pressures and the games people play, but still manage to rise above it all. This nakshatra’s ruling deity is Ahirbudhnya, the serpent of the waters, which shows you getting into transcendent sharing and a complete absorption into your spiritual path – Ahirbudhnya is often identified with the coiled kundalini energy at the base of the spine, which may lead you to a sublime awakening moment.
Withdrawing to practice yoga and meditation promises success and you may be surprised by the quality of your experience, so trust your inner voice. The Sun is currently joined in this nakshatra by Venus, planet of relationship, which gives you a sociable and romantic quality, and a desire for peace and harmony.
You can resolve disputes, forgive past mistakes and also showcase your creative side, especially around your writing and academic gifts.
