Sun, planet of light and Self, is in Mrigashira from June 8th until 22rd 2022, the nakshatra spanning the signs of Taurus and Gemini.
Mrigashira’s name means ‘to hunt’ and its mythical symbol is the Deer or Stag, which is depicted being pursued across the skies by Brahma the Creator, filled with desire and ambition. The Sun is up for a grand quest and you chase your ambition with pride wrapped up in getting success and arriving at a definite place.
The chase, however, may prove more exciting and rewarding than the catch, particularly in a romantic sense, and you no sooner reach one goal than move immediately on to another. Mrigashira’s soft and malleable nature may also see you being pursued by someone else, or by a duty which you keep one step ahead of.
You start a project in the manner of the mythical Solar Hero(ine), but your resolution may fade and another day you are not so up for the challenge – be on your guard against these type of changing moods.
Mrigashira’s Shakti, or special gift, is also to ‘Provide Fulfilment’ and there is ultimate promise in your pursuit and temptation, and curiosity keeps you busy. The Sun sheds light on the nature of your hunt and lets you decide if the end result is worth it: you may find it helpful to set a fixed agenda or itinerary, especially if you are travelling, so you can keep to your chosen path.
In the earthy Taurus portion of this asterism you are fixed and determined, but the Gemini passage after June 16th is more likely to see you spreading your energy around in pursuit of multiple fascinating targets.
