The Sun, planet of the soul and self-expression, is in Shatabhishak, the nakshatra within the sign of Aquarius, from February 19th to March 4th 2021.
This asterism translates to ‘a hundred physicians’ and its Shakti, or special power, is for Healing. You may be spending time looking after somebody now or giving yourself a little extra care and attention, where a particular medicine, diet or lifestyle has a great effect and leads to an important self-discovery. Modern technology helps too and you are well informed about advances in wellness and lifestyle choices.
Shatabhishak’s symbol is an invisible container which shows infinity, or a veil which hides mystical secrets, and this period also sees you exploring the occult and mysterious, with a possible focus on star-gazing and divination. In particular, this nakshatra is about the borderline between the sea or the earth and the sky, which is the domain of astrology.
Shatabhishak is presided over by Varuna, God of the Waters, which brings either greater contact with this element or a deep experience in the inner sea of meditation. The Sun sheds light wherever it lands, but rather than beaming bright in its usual egocentric style, adapts to a more sharing and group-oriented approach as you reflect on deep ideas and look into the future. You find illumination in unusual areas and gain insight into a plan or ambition where you least expect.
Still, it’s good to guard against becoming too introspective, and try to keep on good terms with everyone. Shatabhishak has a reputation for careless or overly direct speech, but Venus, planet of relationship and diplomacy, joins the Sun in this asterism after February 26th and gives you extra charm and social poise.
