The Sun, planet of soul and self-expression, is in Dhanishtha from February 6th to 19th 2022, the nakshatra across 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. The Sun by transit sheds light on hidden issues, and expressing yourself gives other people the courage to do the same: friends like being around your energy.
You are a great supporter of arts and good causes, and generous and giving with money, advice and emotional support. This attitude sees you being drawn into influential circles, where you may be attracted to gemstones and other luxury 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. This transit especially sheds light on issues around music and rhythm, represented by Dhanishtha’s symbol, the Drum.
Any activity with a strong energy or pulse is favoured now and this time shows you getting into a groove in whatever work you do. Public performance sees you capture attention and express the Sun’s light-giving role as the centre of the universe.
Either you create music and art yourself, or pay special attention to a soundtrack or accompaniment for its special mood. Your relationships may be complicated however, and this is a better time for focusing on yourself, your ambitions and money-making plans.
The Capricorn portion of this transit finds you in cautious and calculating mode, but after February 13th, the Sun joins with expansive Jupiter in Aquarius and you take a risk and seize an opportunity.
