Spanning 23°20′ Capricorn – 6°40′ Aquarius The symbol for Nakshatra 23 Dhanistha is the drum, and Dhanishta is ruled by Mars
Dhanishta Nakshatra is placed half in the Vedic sign of Capricorn and half in Aquarius. Both are ruled by Saturn, representing restriction, but Dhanishta Nakshatra is ruled by the opposing energy Mars – which of course stands for bravery and action.
When Mars and Saturn conjoin, it is usually considered a warlike formation. But the war in this case is being fought between the material and the spiritual self.
Saturn brings forth situations that enable past karma to be cleansed.
Mars wants to break through spiritual barriers but Saturn restricts it because there are still areas of life to perfect before spiritual liberation can be achieved.
Dhanishta Nakshatra means a flute or a drum. Here it means the flute of Krishna or the drum of Shiva. The symbol of the drum implies it is beating to the rhythm of someone else – others are to play their song through this drum.
It is essentially a lonely existence from a very early age. This can mean that you are fulfilling other people’s expectations rather than your own: for example, your parents’ expectations, the expectations of your church or culture.
Importantly, both the drum and the flute are hollow from within; this means an emptiness within the Dhanishta person unless he finds something to fill it.
Sometimes this obsession to fill the emptiness can be fruitless chasing of dreams or illusions.
Dhanishta Nakshatra can be visionary, intuitive and good for public activities. The Nakshatra is favourable for material wealth and property. They desire fame and recognition, can make good leaders, and are regal and heroic, with sometimes a showy streak.
Dhanisthas are definitely good conversationalists. They are Social. They love to be part of a group. They can be light-hearted and sensitive, but this can change into fickleness and self-indulgence.
Negatively, Dhanisthas are Self-seeking. They can be greedy and self-absorbed, narcissistic. They can be rash and arrogant.
Their central characteristic is that they can have difficult relationship issues. Marriage can be delayed, denied and prevented due to the effect of others in their life, like a weak father or an over-bearing mother.
One of their problems is that they become false, insincere and empty because they live up to conditioning from others such as parents or place of work. When this happens, they become deceptive, ready to hurt people, bad tempered, and overtaken by their belief in their invincibility and warlike disposition. They can exude vanity and obstinacy. Stubbornness can permeate their life. They hates being told what to do. It’s very dangerous to collude or prop up a negative Dhanistha Nakshatra type who has stooped to behave like this.
Dhanisthas have a captivating smile and roving eyes, and this can support deceptiveness and cruelty. With their firm will, they can become selfish, decisive, violent and alert. By nature they can be extravagant, ambitious, greedy and liberal. And actually, when the chips are down, they can be very cold in dealing with others. They can be stingy, greedy and covetous. Inconsiderate, heartless and revengeful. Can be aloof and arrogant.
But the higher-manifesting Dhanisthas have a scientific or legal cast to the mind, and may have interest in economics. They can enjoy the excitement of travel. Mars makes them adventurous and courageous and Saturn enables them to get the needed resources together. They can make their fortune away from home.
The Nakshatras are such unbelievably accurate declaration and description of the person’s personality. They depict our emotional self and the self of our consciousness so accurately – but it’s ‘warts and all’! They accurately depict the highest and the lowest manifestation of the energy and characteristics that we are born into dependent upon having an emphasis in one Nakshatra or another in our birth chart.
And by perceiving the lowest possibilities, we can use that perception to commit to the good. We can embark on healing. We can embrace empowerment. We can pluck victory out of what could be defeat in our life. We can commit to transformation and growth. We can heal and empower.
