Sun, planet of self and spirituality, is in the nakshatra of Chitra, half in the sign of Virgo and half in zodiacal Libra from October 10th to 24th.
Chitra’s Shakti is the ‘power to collect merit’, so you are invested in good works and business which produces a life-supporting effect. As the Sun is the star of the daytime, Chitra is among the brightest stars in the night sky, whose name means ‘the brilliant’, symbolized by a shining jewel.
This asterism is ruled by Vishwakarma the celestial architect, and brings a talent and appreciation for arts and crafts, where you have a good eye when working with bright or colourful materials. Wherever it is placed, the Sun illuminates an aspect of your life which may have been obscured, so be on the lookout for unexpected opportunity.
You are on a heroic quest which revolves around creating and beautifying your image and surroundings, which may all benefit from a rethink. You take pride in your work, and the first half of this transit especially – up to October 17th – finds you working hard and getting the benefits of a practical daily routine.
This nakshatra also gives you the power of communication, where you have tact, diplomacy and know exactly how to behave in any situation. The Sun moves closely alongside romantic Venus in this nakshatra, which accentuates your creative skills and favours working in partnership.
You may seek out company more than usual and enjoy having somebody to share with, but be careful of over-dependency on others’ opinion. Still, this signature also plays up your fun and forgiving side, which gives you influence and draws people towards you.
