On the pretext of needing to provide comfort and security (Chandra) to others, the Vrischika Chandra may use emotional strategies of non-disclosure, secrecy, or camouflage.

There are three nakshatra types of hidden operations within Vrischika.

  1. Chandra in Visaka-pada-4 may use this habit of concealment to further its goal of expanding wisdom (Guru) via the impact of emotional shock.

  2. Anuradha-Chandra may use this cover-up habit to further its goal of limiting (Shani) the impact of dangerous threats via emotional damage control.

  3. Jyeztha-Chandra may use this habit of strategic screening to further its goal of delivering emotionally cutting, sharply worded messages. Since mentalized Professor Budha rules the revolutionary, emotionally turbulent, perpetually transformative, trauma-inducing 8th-from-Chandra Jyeztha tends to produce the most clever disguises.


Chandra in Visaka * Radha * comforted by expansive shocks * protectors of widening energy channels, sudden growth surge, outreaching vitality

Bisaja * Lotus roots * Grows by Splitting

rulers: Guru-Zukra-Indragni * Guru-Kuja-Indragni

Bisaja Visaka = multiplication (Guru) via splitting

thunderstorm : Indra = Terrifying thunder , and Agni = brilliant forks of lightening .

After nature's awesome, frightening and amazing display of light and sound, Indra and Agni bring the nourishing, essential Rain which feeds all of Life.

Visaka represents the fork of sky lightning and also the fork of rushing rivers released by Indra.

Indra also rules earthquakes, whose terrible sound and fury splits the Earth and can change the fork of huge rivers.

Emotional Need for expansion (Guru) of one's shocking, enlightening, multiplying power

Forceful and brilliantly intelligent, known for quick, flashing wit and Brilliant Intuition.

  • fear of stagnation, ignorance, and darkness

  • 1-2-3 pada delivers shocking insights about relationships, contracts, deals

  • 4th pada may be a shakti-healer of rather shocking but effective methods

Knowing the depth of their own power, Guru's own Vishaja * Radha folk are patient and good-humored teachers. Held in high regard by others, generally believed to be well-intentioned and friendly.

Just as folks know from experience that the scary thunderstorm will always bring nourishing rains, so Visaka 's occasional outbursts of scathing or bombastic wit bring insights that can evoke a great healing.

Splitting-root Visaka like to interject shocking statements, split up placid conventions and shock the conventional expectations .

  • Psycho 1899-1980 film noir Alfred Hitchcock * Chandra-yuti-Guru * Chandra-6 parivartamsha Zukra-3 was known for his droll wit, misanthropic view of human nature, and consistent ability to terrify the audience with deeply threatening psychological imagery

Candescent Chandra-Visaka wields a penetrating emotional glance which feels like a strike of lightening.

The results are almost always favorable because their jolting comments and glare are followed by a movement toward alliance of warring factions (Anuradha).

Physically, splitting-root Bishaja often experience small electrical shocks jolting their nervous systems, at a moment when their consciousness requires recognition of truth. Also true for root-splitter Visaka in radix lagna.

Downside of Visaka may feel jealous of others' financial well-being and social status, especially in the quarters of Kuja.

The wisdom of Guru-ruled Visaka = brilliant but fleeting . One may feel frustrated when those moments of awe-struck recognition of their amazing power have passed, and they have to get back to boring old work.

Visaka's bursts of truth are unpredictable. Typically they are not rewarded for their social contributions until a body of their observations has built up over time.

Success after mid-life only.

  • Deep emotional need for appreciation of their shocking brilliance

QUOTATION from B.V. Raman, 300 Important Combinations , p 304

"when the Moon in Libra is aspected by Mars or Saturn, the native is supposed to become cruel."...

"when the Moon is in the first quarter of Visaka and powerfully aspected by Saturn and the Sun, he would not only be lacking humanitarian feelings but would be completely impervious to human suffering".

Spiritual directors of this section of the path:

Sacred Tree for Visaka Nakshatra = Limonium acidissima


Fruit of the Kaitha Tree (Kapittha, Kath Bael, Wood Apple)

= sacred to Visaka

from BPHS, Ch. 94

  • "Remedies from the Effects of Birth in Jyeztha Gandanta"

  • Ranjan edition, 1995, p. 1035 Vol 2.

"A girl born in Jyeztha Nakshatra destroys (is the cause of death of) the elder brother of her husband, and

  • A girl born in Visaka Nakshatra destroys (is the cause of death of) the younger brother of her husband.

  • Therefore a cow should be given in charity at the time of the marriage of such girls to wipe out the aforesaid evil effects."

In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Visaka behavior.

The partner expresses one's own dormant shocking brilliance, and the partner becomes the provider of moments of amazing, but also frightening, emotional insights.

The partner may seem to be flashing their powers and trying to scare the native, until the native realizes that the partner is simply mirroring back one's own fleeting, brilliant, insightful awareness.
