Jupiter is in pada one of Purva Bhadrapada from March 2nd to 16th 2022, in the Aquarius portion of this nakshatra.
Purva Bhadrapada has an association with burning and fire, where you purge and cleanse old activities before moving on to the next level. Its symbol, the front side of a bed, shows you removing old obstacles as much as accumulating new materials and ambitions, and its Shakti is ‘The Power of Spiritual Fire’. Pada One of this asterism relates to Aries navamsha, ruled by Mars, which makes a doubly-fiery quality, where your thoughts and plans are immediate and action-oriented.
If you have put up with career or romantic limitations, or felt uninspired in your ideas, you may now jump into a spiritual program that has been too long delayed. Your sudden movement surprises or even alarms friends and family, but you know these changes have been coming and are not backing down.
Purva’s deity is Ajaikapada, a form of Rudra, the Storm God, though in this case a fire-storm in the sense of making a sacrifice or atonement – meditation and fasting are timeless techniques for inner clearing. Reconciling yourself to the past or forgiving someone and moving on are gentler uses of the time, but also very powerful.
This nakshatra is also represented by a two-faced person, which shows a hidden agenda, or else you yourself are showing an unexpected side to the world. Try preparing the ground first and letting people know how you are feeling, and what expect from your decisions – bring an old belief or study to natural conclusion before moving on suddenly.
Jupiter is with its planetary friend the Sun through this transit, and together they shine and light and make a grand statement of your beliefs.
