The Sun, symbol of the soul and self-expression, is in Bharani nakshatra, in the zodiacal sign of Aries from April 27th to May 11th 2021.
Bharani name means ‘she who bears’ and its symbol, a Yoni, is associated giving birth – either literally, as in bearing children, or thinking up plans and creative ideas. The Sun is in its strongest sign here, giving power, energy and presence: you have leadership ability and can inspire by example in a nakshatra that represents ambition and the original struggle for life.
Bharani’s ruling deity is Yama, Lord of the Underworld, which suggests every time you create something (or someone) new, you must leave the old and outworn behind.
The Shakti of this asterism is ‘the power to carry things away’, in the sense of a soul journey, or a situation where something or someone is removed from your life. Bharani represents the transition from one state to another, where you give up what you are now for what you might one day become.
This transformation can be initially unsettling or painful and requires courage and a leap of faith, which is especially relevant to the Sun, the symbol of the personality and the heart of your horoscope. Deal with this dynamic by freeing yourself of attachment in the beginning and making space in your life for the new to be born: attaining your goals gives you a feeling of purification and release.
This nakshatra also possesses a motherly quality, with a gift for home making and hospitality, and you may be doing duty as a parent or taking a maternal role at your office or workplace.
Keep in mind too that the Sun is flanked on either side by fiery Mars and rebellious Rahu through this whole transit, which adds a tough and impulsive quality, so while you are brave and energized, be careful of leaping into a situation without thinking.
