Rohini Nakshatra

Growth and abundance

I am Rohini.
I am feminine, abundant, firm, fertile and nourishing like Earth.
I inspire you towards growth, progress, expansion and fulfillment of ambitions.
I grow, nourish and elevate everything.
Like Prajapati, who created the world through dividing his own body, I expand and share, but never lose my essence.
I lead you towards progress and self-development.
I keep you grounded, stable and well nourished throughout the process.
Prajapati is the primordial Creator present within each of us. He is responsible for our urge to create, procreate, grow and expand, so we can progress in material and spiritual life.
The power of Prajapati and Rohini nakshatra is the power to grow all things, rohana shakti. Similar is the power of Moon himself, who happens to be the planetary ruler of this lunar mansion. Here all our ideas get nourished and grounded, establishing their roots in the world of matter. After all, Rohini nakshatra does not only dwell at the heart of earthy and fixed Taurus, but it is also earthy and fixed in nature. This is why, though, it can be a bit stubborn sometimes, as well as too attached to material world. As Rohini is Moon’s favourite nakshatra, in the heart of earthly and fixed rashi, where Moon find its mulatrikona place, it often makes us too attached to our comfort zone and all that is pleasurable and agreeable for the mind = Moon. This is also why it awakens so easily all romantic feelings within us. It inspires us to grow, arise, expand, create, progress and materialise all our ideas. It nourishes all that it touches. This is why we need to be very careful, which desires and thoughts are we allowing to enter our inner space on the day when Moon is dwelling in Rohini nakshatra.
Rohini nakshatra is also the star of all the natural cycles, seasons and our own habits. On the very first birthday of Lord Krishna, when Moon was dwelling in Krittika nakshatra, when he was still a baby he kicked with his little foot the cart with different utensils, which happened to be a demon in disguise. There is a deep meaning of this story. The cart-demon, Sakatasura, symbolises the power of habit and our samskaras from the past, which we keep pulling with ourselves from life to life, like a heavy cart (which happens to be the symbol of Rohini nakshatra). Even though healthy habits may helps us in finding more stability and discipline in life, unhealthy ones are binding us to the world of matter, creating countless attachments. Paramahansa Yogananda explained that this power of habit can be defeated only by the power of intuition, as it automatically breaks all the negative patterns. This spontaneaous intuition is represented by Lord Krishna defeating the demon of our old habits, when he was just 1 year old, a little baby.

Divine and shadow qualities

Rohini nakshatra and Prajapati

Prajapati represents the Divine Creator within us. He constantly wishes to grow and expand all things. That is why his lunar mansion is called Rohini – “growing” or “ascending” one. Yet, this urge to grow and progress may sometimes manifest in material realm also as unsatiated hunger, greed or lust. This is reflected in the story of Prajapati, the Divine Creator, who lusted after his own daughter, his own creation: Rohini.

1. Deep insights into Rohini Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Rohini Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Prajapati, which you never heard on any other course. I can promise you that.

You will also learn about various yogas formed with Rohini Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Prajapati
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.

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.
