The Sun is in Punarvasu from July 6th to 20th, crossing the zodiacal signs of Gemini and Cancer.
Punarvasu’s symbol is a Quiver of Arrows, which shows an adventurous flight of thought and imagination. This nakshatra is ruled by Aditi, the Divine Mother who presides over noble virtues and infinity itself, and the Sun’s transit here brings a desire for new knowledge and wisdom, along with character development.
Punarvasu is a Passive and Sattvic asterism famed for its adaptable qualities, which finds you with a love for luxuries and poetry, and your adventures here are likely to be on the mental and spiritual level, or in the arts where you speak words with great power and strength.
Punarvasu is the traditional birth nakshatra of Lord Rama, the Avatar-King, whose bow and arrow was symbolic of his character and destiny. The Sun is also the natural karaka of kingship and at this time you may be thrust into a leadership role or face an important decision which affects a larger group of people.
Shine a light on your own needs and also those of friends and co-workers you influence by your choices. While you align your desires with those of the majority, for integrity’s sake you must sometimes back your views against popular opinion.
Punarvasu’s Shakti, or special gift, is for Renewal and Replenishment, and at this time of year you can tap into a new source of energy and inspiration on both a material and spiritual level. Generosity wins you friends and influence.
A path or ambition which was left unexplored comes back into your life, or else you complete a personal character-forming journey. A course or program of study that you left behind or made sacrifices to pursue comes full-circle and finally gives up its reward.
