Shravana (ear or hearing) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Symbolized by a trident, and presided over by Vishnu, this Nakshatra is ruled by the Moon at Capricorn 10° to 23°20’. Favorable actions are usually well supported at this time, and individuals tend to lead more ethical, prosperous lives, though also sometimes be overgenerous or liberal.

—Pramela Thiagesan
