Swati (the Good Goer) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Shown by a sword, this Nakshatra is a good time to “cut loose” and is considered one of the best signs; people under this sign may tend towards gentleness and friendliness during this time, as well as over-generosity and unawareness of debt. The planet Rahu rules Swati and the god of wind, Vayu, presides over this sign located from Libra 6°40’ to 20°.
