Pushya

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Pushya (nourishing) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. One can find this sign, represented by a wheel, in Cancer 3°20’ to 16°40’. Brihaspati, the guru of the gods, presides, and the planet Saturn rules over this Nakshatra. Considered one of the best, this moon sign is good for all nourishing activities with the exception of marriage; one may exhibit increased intelligence and spirituality, although zealousness and oversensitivity may also abound in this sign.
