(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Visakha (forked or spreading branches) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Indragni, both deities Indra and Agni combined, presides and the planet Jupiter rules over this decorated gateway moon sign found from Libra 20° to Scorpio 3°20’. Considered a good sign for construction, land deals, and the like, people in Visakha will be quite clever and enterprising, though overly talkative and greedy at times.
