Hasta Nakshatra

Sun’s healing touch

I am Hasta.
I am the power and skill present in your hands.
I remind you that Sun-god, Savitar, resides in your palms.
Your fingers resemble his ability and healing rays.
I teach you how to wisely manage your personal power.
I seek to find balance between giving and receiving.
I govern all exchanges of energy.
Savitar, the Vedic Sun-god, dispels the darkness of ignorance from our mind and infuses it with Divine intelligence. His illuminating rays help us see things more clearly and precisely.
Savitar, Vedic Sun-god, represents the light of our intelligence that dispels the darkness of ignorance. It is because of the light of the Sun that we can recognise the true form and shape of all things. Similarly Savitar, the presiding deity of Hasta nakshatra, blesses us with the power of recognition and understanding of things. This is why Mercury, the planet of intellect, finds his highest exaltation point in this lunar mansion. Our intelligence shines here in its full splendour. Hasta nakshatra, dwelling in the middle of original sixth house, blesses us with a lot of skills that help us to survive in this material world, especially problem solving and putting things in order. Its shadow side is, though, being overly cold and calculative, or even sometimes too obsessed with keeping things in order.
When Moon shines in this swift and airy lunar mansion, it supports all types of energy exchange: conversations, meetings, communication, trade, negotiations, agreements and even marriages. It helps us to interact with the world and engage in its game with a little bit of healthy detachment and sense of humour. It encourages us to take things more lightly and look at difficult situations in life or obstacles with curiosity of a child, rather than taking it too seriously. Challenges, after all, are our opportunities to learn, progress and grow stronger. And when we remember Savitar, the Golden Soul within us, the giver of all power and intelligence during the difficult situations, even they will become easy to handle.

Divine and shadow qualities

Hasta nakshatra and Savitar

Savitar, Sun-god presiding over Hasta nakshatra, dispels all types of darkness in our minds: dullness, ignorance, frustration, depression or disease. He shines as the light of intelligence, skilfulness, health and positivity within us. He inspires us to see everything in a more positive light. Yet, strong intellect, if not balanced by open heart, can also make us too self-centered, insensitive or even greedy and egoistic.

1. Deep insights into Hasta Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Hasta Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Savitar, 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 Hasta Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Savitar
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.
