The Sun, symbol of light and the self, is in Purva Bhadrapada from March 4th to 18th, the nakshatra crossing the zodiacal signs of Aquarius and Pisces.
Your energy and focus takes on a new urgency now, and Purva Bhadrapada’s Shakti is the power of spiritual fire, which gives this period a ritual, cleansing quality. By transit, the Sun illuminates wherever it lands, and sunlight is the most powerful antiseptic, so you can shine a light into the dark and unconscious corners of your world.
Purva’s deity is Ajaikapada, a form of Rudra, the Storm God, though in this case it is a fire-storm in the sense of making a penance or sacrifice – chanting and fasting are precious now, but don’t take your ascetic attitude too far. This nakshatra’s other symbol is the front side of a bed or cot, which shows you clearing old baggage as much as gathering new status and possessions.
Be mindful that hasty, short term decisions may reverberate for longer in your world and you are left to handle the fallout. Tie up old business before moving on with a new effort. You encounter pushy characters who may be hiding their own agendas and masking their ambitions, and some stop at nothing to succeed.
From March 9th, the Sun is joined in this asterism by Venus, planet of relationship and the arts, so you luxuriate in company and appreciate fine quality and pleasant surroundings. You also have a diplomatic flair that can smooth over disputes and brings people together.
By March 15th you may feel increased pressure from authority, but are also more driven to achieve – ignore the demands of others and stay determined to do your own thing.
