Purvashada

Purvashada

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Purvashada (the former unsubdued) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. This Nakshatra is usually depicted as a bed or an elephant’s tusk, and is located from Sagittarius13°20’ to 26°40’, where the planet Venus rules it. This is a good time to try to liberate somebody; people may be more wealthy and influential in this period, but also may find themselves settling for less or not open to advice. Apa, god of water, presides or Purvashada.
