The Sun, planet of pride and identity, is in Shravana in the zodiacal sign of Capricorn from January 24th to February 6th 2023.
Shravana’s symbol of the Ear translates to listening and an oral tradition of wisdom, learning, and spiritual knowledge. You can use this solar energy to define yourself with speech, and also to absorb and share information to discover new ideas.
This nakshatra’s Shakti, or unique gift, is for ‘Connection’ so as well as self-determination and an ego-based approach, you can align with a kindred spirit and get the most from being in a group. Use this transit for public speaking, persuasion and oratory, and specifically for learning new mantras, particularly when you apply them in a regular and focused way.
Affirmations are a powerful and practical technique to help reach your goals, where the Sun shines a light on a previously obscure or hidden subject and allows you to make sense of it. Shravana has a natural affinity with Saraswati, devata of wisdom, and her energy is also a powerful tool for study, memory and forging a bond with the arts.
Teaching is a good way to reinforce your understanding, so you get a full appreciation of your own worth through giving and receiving information. A period of silence can be important too, where you listen to your inner voice and tune out negative comments and idle gossip.
The Sun also sits between the benefic influences of Mercury and Venus through this whole transit, which puts even greater attention on scraps of information you pick up in passing, and how you use them. Keeping your message positive and being a channel for knowledge sees help arrive from an unexpected source.
