Swati Nakshatra

Swiftness and freedom

I am Swati.
I am fast, powerful and unrestrained, like the wind-god, Vayu.
I seek independence and freedom of self-expression.
I love travelling, adventures and discoering new horizons.
Filled with air element, which connects everything, I am a good mediator, too.
I am the bringer of change and revolutionising, stormy inspiration.
Vayu, the wind-god, gives us speed and inspiration to progress in life. In the microcosm of our body he manifests as prana, life-breath itself.
Vayu is a swift god of wind, who is constant movement. Penetrating through everything, he constantly changes his form. He speeds up all things, spreads his influence in all directions and scatters everything to make space for something new, so progress can happen. Vayu is also addressed in the Vedas as “the giver of stormy inspiration and motivation”. Such is also the nature of Swati nakshatra. It inspires our mind to move forward and discover new horizons. Dwelling at the heart of airy Libra, original seventh house, Swati nakshatra also supports us in all types of energy exchange, like trade, negotiations and mediations.
Yet, exaggerated energy of air element, can sometimes also make us overly distracted and multitasking, doing ten things at the same time. Swati nakshatra and Vayu himself represent this unrestrained, impulsive creativity and spark of inspiration. This is why the consort of Vayu is known as Bharati or Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, creative arts and inspiration. We must remember, though, that creativity, if unrestrained, can also lead to lack of accomplishment. When Moon dwells in Swati nakshatra it can easily make our attention too scattered around and therefore incapable to truly complete any task.

Divine and shadow qualities

Swati nakshatra and Vayu

Vayu, the independent Wind-god, awakens within us desire for freedom and innovation. He represents the creative life force which seeks freedom of expression, to be free from shackles of the limitations created by our own mind or by the society. Yet, in His pursuit of freedom we may sometimes become too eccentric, impatient and unfocused, which can result with confusion or even breaking some sensitive boundaries, which is something that we can regret later.

Swati Nakshatra In-depth

Discover the secrets of Swati 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 Vayu, presiding deity of this lunar mansion, 20 charts for study and visual charts.
1. Deep insights into Swati Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Swati Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Vayu, 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 Swati Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Vayu
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.
