The Sun is in Hasta from September 26th to October 10th, the nakshatra of the hand and handicraft.
As Hasta’s ruling devata, the Sun has a clear affinity with this area of the sky, giving a confident and generous nature within the humbler and earthier approach of Virgo. This is also a masculine, fiery, rajasic nakshatra, giving energy and passion, so take pride in your work at this time, whatever it is, and show you can be a safe pair of hands.
Even a temporary job or filling in time while your real vocation shapes up, can be a part of your heroic journey. An eye for detail is an asset, and you correct mistakes you missed before: craftsmanship in everything you do now is key.
The Sun also shines wherever it lands, so you will be illuminating a new area or shedding light on a subject from the past. Dealing with mundane tasks, medicine and healing, writing and teaching, and counselling and therapy are all areas you can excel at, all with a commercial flair.
Hasta represents an outstretched hand, showing you – or someone you know – getting their needs met, with a by-hook-or-by-crook approach. Yet the Sun is also an honourable planet, the significator of the soul, and a spiritual approach may lead you to explore divination like astrology or the obvious palmistry – an initial reading is many people’s way into this craft and science, and may lead to a longer-term interest.
From October 5th, the Sun receives the influence of fiery Mars retrograde, which has a galvanizing and impulsive effect, and you may find someone acting in a pushy or competitive way. Up your game and direct the energy in a positive direction.
