The Sun is in Vishakha from November 6th to 20th, in the zodiac sign of Scorpio, the sign of its friend Mars, and a natural place for it to shine and express its energy.
You are brave and decisive and chase up your ambitions after a period of uncertainty.
Vishakha’s symbol is a Victory Arch, but if you make your goals agreeable and take pleasure in the success of others, you create goodwill and people want to see you succeed.
Victory here is something much subtler than taking the top prize, and instead you get a satisfied inner glow. The transiting Sun beams a light wherever it is placed and brings hidden information and self-knowledge to the surface, and you may find deep insight into others’ motivations and psychology.
Vishakha is ruled by Indragni, a fusion of Indra, chief of the Gods and Agni, which is fire personified. This is a Phoenix-like deity, symbolic of Scorpio’s transformative power, where dark emotion and mystery combine to create a new and purer ego.
Vishakha’s Shakti, or unique power, is ‘to gain many fruits in life’, and this fiery asterism represents an iron-willed ambition which goes all-out for success, often at any price.
Develop awareness of other people’s needs and feelings, and likewise in your social life, make your relations sincere and not just part of a larger game – the Sun likes to give, and people respond to your warmth. Up to November 17th, the Sun also receives the energy of pushy Mars, which may bring pressure from authority, but also gives you courage and competitiveness.
