The Sun, planet of soul and self-expression, is in Rohini nakshatra in the sign of Taurus from May 25th to June 8th.
Rohini’s Shakti is the ‘Power to Grow’, and now is the time to put your focus on new opportunities with solar pride and identity wrapped up in them. The Sun shines a light wherever it transits and your creative and artistic plans come together as earthy Rohini gives you grounding and security.
New plans flourish and develop, so pay attention to beginnings and any project which is sattvic and life-supporting has a good chance of success. This nakshatra is ruled by Brahma the Creator, which has some parallels with the Sun, the centre of the universe and the giver of life.
The Sun’s position also points to physical wellness and vitality, and at this point you are earthy, grounded and drawn towards fine quality in food and lifestyle. Rohini has a taste for aesthetics and luxurious, classically feminine qualities of image and fashion, where you may do well with design and presentation.
In all, this nakshatra likes to be comfortable, and you understand people’s needs now with a flair for cuisine and hospitality which may impress a special person. You are focused on flirtation, love affairs, and putting fun into life, and your fixed and persistent attitude is determined to get your own way – as long as you don’t become overly jealous or possessive.
This transit coincides with Mercury retrograde in Taurus up to June 3rd, which can bring a change of mind, so be careful of over-committing to a promise or purchase.
