Nourishment and expansion
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.
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.
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.
