Saturn, planet of boundaries, karma and success, is in pada two of Dhanishtha from March 19th to April 29th, in the last part of Capricorn.
The second pada of this nakshatra relates to Virgo, in the relationship and good fortune Navamsha chart, which brings you an underlying analytical quality and a gift for managing day to day matters intelligently.
Saturn rewards your great ambition and executive ability, and now you drill down into the details, either financial, romantic or emotional. You make your operation smoother and eliminate waste without compromising your overall sense of purpose.
Dhanishtha is linked to music, in particular rhythm symbolized by the Drum, showing a pulse which acts as a marching tempo in your rise to the top. Pada two’s metronomic, Mercury-ruled beat sees you working efficiently and communicating in a way that spreads your message more widely.
Rather than a diva-like desire for attention, you concentrate on doing the simple things well and become a vital cog in a larger wheel. Dhanishtha is ruled by the Ashta (eight) Vasus, the auspicious wealth-givers in Vedic mythology, and intellectual property may be a useful long-term goal.
The Shakti, or special gift of this nakshatra is also ‘To Bestow Wealth and Fame’, so as well as being an excellent team-player, you also have promise of taking the spotlight – make sure you are getting full credit for your contribution.
Saturn moves alongside pushy Mars up to April 7th, and you may be in a competitive environment where you have to fight for attention. Resist attempts to muscle-in on your ideas and action, but play it smart too – channelling your energy and putting extra hours in leaves you in an unbeatable position.
