The Sun, planet of soul and self-expression, is in Dhanishtha from February 6th to 19th 2021, the nakshatra which crosses the zodiacal signs of Capricorn and Aquarius.
Dhanishtha’s name translates to wealth and benevolence, and its Shakti, or special power, is ‘To create fame and abundance’, where you can step up as a performer and focus of attention. This transit sheds light on issues around music, rhythm in particular, represented by Dhanishtha’s symbol the Drum.
Any activity which needs a strong energy or pulse is favoured now and this time shows you getting into a groove with whatever work you are engaged in. Public performance allows you to easily hold the attention of a room, where you express the Sun’s light-giving role as the centre of the universe.
Either you create music or art yourself or pay special attention to a soundtrack or accompaniment for its special mood and impact. Sun transits shed light on hidden issues, and expressing yourself gives other people inspiration to do the same: friends like being around your vibration.
You are a great patron, and generous and giving with money, advice and emotional support, and get drawn into influential circles. You are also attracted to gemstones or other high-ticket items and investments. Dhanishtha is ruled by the Ashta (eight) Vasus, the solar gods of energy and light in Vedic mythology, which have a natural affinity with the Sun.
Relationships may be complicated or delayed however, and this is a better time for focusing on yourself, your ambitions and money-making plans, than one-to one affairs. This whole transit coincides with Mercury’s retrograde phase, so take decisions around money and business carefully and don’t be concerned about waiting to give your promise.
