Pusyha Nakshatra

Nourishment and expansion

I am Pushya.
With the power of Brihaspati, lord of vastness, I expand your consciousness.
I make your heart blossom and touch the infinity.
I nourish with Divine wisdom, inspiration and the power of sacred sound.
I make everything bigger and vaster than it was.
I desire to share my essence with others as effortlessly as the flower emits its fragrance.
I am selflessly giving.
Brihaspati, generous Guru of gods, blesses us with the power to reflect the Divine qualities (brahmavarchasa shakti), to expand and blossom, manifesting Divine creativity and wisdom.
Brihaspati literally means “the lord of expansion” or “the lord of vastness”. He helps us to keep our mind open and vast for new ideas to emerge and blossom, and for Divine light to reflect through us. In this vastness the deepest compassion can be found, the most profound wisdom and plenty of space to express yourself and your creativity.

Pushya nakshatra helps us to nourish all that is good, within us and to grow above our limitations, like lotus flower, which grows in the mud, pierces through the surface to become the most beautiful of all flowers. It inspires us to seek beauty and opportunity to grow in every life experience. It also teaches us not to be afraid to open our hearts – because our soul, more vast than the sky, is so much bigger than any of our little problems. Such are the spiritual lessons from Pushya nakshatra.

Bij mantra of Pushya nakshatra is kam. Ka refers to expansive, creative qualities of Brahma, the creator, as well as to immesureable, infinite light of the Divine, while ma refers to measurement or human limitation put on this Divine light. No wonder, it is the first bija and first nakshatra connected to heart chakra, where we learn, similarly like Guru Brihaspati, how to rise above our human limitations and reflect more of Divine light of unconditional love.

Pushya nakshatra is light and swift in nature, but also warm and nourishing. It always seeks expansion, space and opportunities to blossom and reflect Divine light. Nourishing Moon feels very comfortable in this lunar mansion, yet he tends to become a little bit too passive here, sometimes, and unwilling to move out of his comfort zone.

Divine and shadow qualities

Pushya nakshatra and Brihaspati

Pushya nakshatra expands, grows and nourishes everything. It sustains and makes bigger something that already is – and therefore it is considered to be one of the most auspicious nakshatras. When Moon dwells in Pushya it is a good time to spend some time with our family, go deeper into our spiritual practice, learn something and nourish something that we have. We need to be careful, though, not to think “too big” and to be too unrealistic in our plans – neither to stay too much in our comfort zone.

Divine qualities

  • open mind
  • nourishment
  • creativity
  • selflessness
  • security

Shadow qualities

  • attachments

Pushya Nakshatra In-depth

Discover the secrets of Pushya nakshatra in this almost 3 hours long session with 8 study cases and detailed knowledge of the symbolism, anatomy and secrets of this lunar mansion. Along with the access to course recording you will also receive +20 pages of pre-read material about the symbolism of Brihaspati, presiding deity of this lunar mansion, 22 charts for study and visual charts.
1. Deep insights into Pushya Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Pushya Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Brihaspati, 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 Pushya Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Brihaspati
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.
