(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Rohini (or the Red One) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Mostly depicted as an ox cart, Prajapati, the god of creation, presides over this Nakshatra located between Taurus 10° and 23°20’, ruled by the moon. This sign conveys the brute strength of a bull, and is considered a good time to start new projects; people will tend to be more charismatic and will communicate more clearly during this time, although also perhaps a bit manipulative or indulgent.
