Shravana Nakshatra

The art of listening

I am Shravana.
I love to connect, sustain, nourish and empathise.
I absorb the vibrations from my environment very easily.
I teach you to speak less and listen more.
Listen a little bit more to your heart, and a little bit less to the people around you.
Influence more rather than just being influenced.
Lord Vishnu presiding over Shravana nakshatra is the supersoul pervading and connecting all that is existing, and reminds us about this underlying spiritual unity of all beings and all things.
Vishnu, the all-pervasive force sustaining the existence of the universe, is the presiding deity of Shravana nakshatra. “Everything rests upon Me, as pearls are strung on a thread”, he says in Bhagavad Gita. You cannot see the thread, but you are well aware that without it the pearl necklace would be destroyed. Lord Vishnu represents that underlying force, which connects everything into a collective consciousness – and therefore the shakti or the power of Shravana nakshatra is samhanana shakti, “the power to connect”. People born under this influence are often very good in connecting facts and people – but may sometimes have a tendency to connect too many things at the same time, which may lead to confusion.
Shravana means “to hear”, “to stream” or “to flow”. The planetary ruler of this lunar mansion is the sensitive Moon. Shravana nakshatra inspires us to listen more and talks less. To be more attentive to the silent voice of our intuition, but also not to ignore the feedback that we receive from our environment. People born under this stellar influence are often extremely sensitive to the thought energies in their environment and tend to absorb them easily, which can be very overwhelming for the mind. It might be sometimes hard for them to discern between the true voice of their intuition and the voice of their mind or thoughts of others. Daily meditation can help them a lot to get more clarity.

Divine and shadow qualities

Shravana nakshatra and Vishnu

Lord Vishnu inspires us to recognise that the same soul that dwells in you is also present in another person. The very same Divine Spirit pervades and sustains everybody and everything in the universe. This very understanding awakens in us compassion, respect and sensitivity for the needs of all beings. When we connect more with this ocean of collective consciousness, it makes us more receptive and intuitive, as well. Yet, sometimes, the stellar influence of Shravana nakshatra can also make us oversensitive and render us unable to discern between the variegated voices of our intuition, emotions, mind and thought energies of others.

Shravana Nakshatra In-depth

Discover the secrets of Shravana nakshatra in this 3+ hours long session with 6 study cases and detailed knowledge of the symbolism and secrets of this lunar mansion. Along with the access to course recording you will also receive +15 pages of pre-read material about the symbolism of Vishnu, presiding deity of this lunar mansion, 20 charts for study and visual charts.
1. Deep insights into Shravana Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Shravana Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Vishnu, 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 Shravana Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Vishnu
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.
