Vishakha Nakshatra

Force and light

I am Vishakha.
I am strong, fiery and charged with Divine electricity.
I have the power to penetrate through all the obstacles.
I make you understand that if there is a will, there is a way.
I encourage you to find solutions against the odds.
I inspire you to stay dedicated to your path.
Indragni, the unified power of our prana, the life force (Indra) and focused will power (Agni), ignites within us a spark of inspiration, motivation and ambition. It is also known as Indrani or Shakti.
Indragni, presiding over Vishakha nakshatra, is a dual Vedic deity, which combines and unites the qualities of Indra (representing our life force, as well as our soul) and Agni (inner fire of will power). The forces of Indra and Agni uniting in Vishakha nakshatra awaken within us the power of devotion, determination and ambition to move forward and progress. That is why the shakti of this lunar mansion is vyapana shakti or the power to penetrate through all things. It is one of the most passionate and devotional nakshatras.
The deity of Vishakha nakshatra is sometimes also addressed as Indrani, the consort of Indra, known also as Shachi, who is the Vedic personification of Adishakti, primordial feminine force. She is compared to a lightening and brings into our awareness the striking light of inspiration. On esoteric level she represents Kundalini shakti herself. Indrani was also known as a very short-tempered Goddess of wrath and jealousy, which is why we all may have a tendency to be a bit impulsive, when Moon dwells in this lunar mansion – and which is why sensitive Moon is debilitated here.

Divine and shadow qualities

Vishakha nakshatra and Indragni

Indragni ignites electric power of passion, focus and will power within us. They mobilise and unite all our inner powers to resist any negative influence and fulfil our objective. They awaken devotion within us. Yet, too much of this energy can sometimes make us overly ambitious, proud and forceful in our actions, as well as overly focused on our goals – to the extent of treating them as justification for choosing our means. When Moon transits through Vishakha nakshatra, remember to stay balanced in your actions.

Vishakha Nakshatra In-depth

1. Deep insights into Vishakha Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Vishakha Nakshatra and its presiding deity, Indragni, 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 Vishakha Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Indragni
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.
