Anuradha Nakshatra

Love and devotion

I am Anuradha.
Loyalty is my dharma.
My devotion is my biggest power.
But deep inside I am very vulnerable and sensitive, too.
Do not abuse my love and loyalty.
It takes a long time for me to heal from a broken heart.
Because I never form superficial relationships.
Once I dedicate myself to something, I do it with my whole heart.
Mitra, Sun-god as Divine Friend, teaches us how to value all relations in our life and to choose wisely what we with to stay loyal and devoted to.
Sun-god as Mitra Aditya, presiding deity of Anuradha Nakshatras assumes a form of a Divine Friend, who scarified himself and made a penance for the welfare of the world. He teaches us the value of selfless sacrifice, devotion, loyalty and unconditional love. He teaches us that in order to sustain our relations we often need to sacrifice some things. Often these are our own attachments, desires, anger, jealousy or resentment.

Yet, the very same energy can also manifest its shadow side in a form of clinginess, co-dependence, too deep attachment, over romanticising and idealising one’s partner or even addictions, which can lead to very toxic relations. Anuradha Nakshatras is also a birth star or Radharani, beloved of Krishna and an example of pure devotion, Divine unconditional love to God. People born under the influence of this lunar mansion, due to that, often have a strong capacity to love and dedicate themselves.

Anuradha Nakshatras natives, always on the search for perfect love, may frequently end up heart broken and depressed, when their expectations are not met. Their biggest mistake is attributing Divine qualities to their human partners and then losing themselves completely in such a relationship. They may frequently believe that once the ideal “prince charming” or “twin soul” appears in their life, then their life relations and life will become effortlessly perfect. They need to learn how to stop seeking their source of happiness in other person and develop a more mature approach to relationships. Often their biggest life lesson is de-idealising their partners and learning how to end the relationship once it becomes toxic. Saturn, as planetary tulles of this lunar mansion will be often telling them how to accept the reality of life through relationships. Bhakti yoga is often a recommended spiritual path for them as it gives Anuradha natives an opportunity to express their love and devotion towards the only infallible lover: God.

Divine and shadow qualities

Anuradha nakshatra and Mitra

Mitra Aditya is the god of sacred relationships and reminds us that every relation in our life is sacred and can be healed only with the power of unconditional love. He inspires us to introspect and notice all the things that prevent the true love (and, very often, love for ourselves) from being manifested in our life, like jealousy, resentment, grief, pain or any trauma from the past. He teaches us not to suppress those feelings, but rather to welcome them as our teachers, embrace them and accept them as a valuable part of who we are and whom we have become. He gently encourages us not to stay so attached to all those difficult feelings and emotions that may have sabotaged us for so long, but rather to have the courage to let go of them and allow the forces of transformation to shape our life further.

1. Deep insights into Anuradha Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Anuradha Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Mitra, which you never heard on any other course. I can promise you that. On this course we dive deep not only into the wisdom of the nakshatra itself, but we also have a close look at the anatomy of the nakshatra, with its 4 unique padas and special degrees. You will also learn about various yogas formed with Anuradha Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Mitra
Spiritual aspect of the nakshatras was always most fascinating for me. Being on spiritual path for more than 12 years, I was always asking myself a question, what the Moon is trying to teach me, when it passes, day by day, through each nakshatra, awakening its dormant shakti. A spiritual approach to the nakshatras and seeking their deeper wisdom in everyday life is what makes my nakshatra classes unique and quite different from others.
3. Practical approach to understanding the nakshatras
I believe that knowledge can gain its real value only once we learn how to apply it. Each of our classes completes with a detailed analysis of chosen study cases, so you can learn better, how the shakti of the nakshatra can manifest in people’s real lives. After each class you will also receive at least 20 study cases for self-study, so you can start observing some patterns and feel more confident in noticing the influence of the nakshatras.
