Shatabishaj * Sadachbia Nakshatra Celestial Location -- Roebuck, The Circle of Stars


from the Persian-Egyptian viewpoint

  • the constellation that is called Sataves * Satevis * (including the star Fom-al-Haut) is one of the four Chieftains. Sataves * is called the Watcher of the Northern sky

ref: Davis, G. A. (1945). The so-called royal stars of Persia. Popular Astronomy, Vol. 53, p. 149. archived in http://adsabs.harvard.edu

According to Davis, there is no textual justification for claiming that the single star Fomalhaut (fom-al-hawt) is itself "the Watcher of the Northern Sky".

Rather, the entire constellation of Sata-bisa (Skt) * Sata-vaesa (Avestan) meaning 100 stars is the Northern Quadrant Watcher.

Shatabishaja * Sadachbia * Shatavisakhya

= Rahu at His most Rahu-ish

  • Rahu does His 'best' work in Shatabishaja * Sadachbia .

Shatavishkya nakshatra = ruled by churning, barrier-breaking Rahu

Kumbha rashi co-lorded by Rahu yuti Rahu 's enemy Shani


Shata-Bishaja Lotus-root people obtain the social respect due to a lawful Shani-ruled rashi but they have a special affinity for the non-human beings and also sympathy (Chandra) for the outcast, foreigners (Rahu) the lower classes (Shani) and the great masses of people who huddle into leaderless conformist crowds .

  • They respond to the masses and the classes, and once in a ranked status they start to break social taboos by penetrating the barriers that surround the elite

  • They are not usually personally very happy, prone to fits of depression; however the healing service they can render to others is quite magnificent.

  • Their best environment is one of poverty, despair, illiteracy, instinctive and muscular passions, large numbers of people trying to distribute relatively few resources, cultures of oily smoke and conjuring, crawling with reptiles, eating meat and surging with animal passions.

  • Into the right environment they bring a gift of mimicry and posturing that allows people to trust them. Shatabisha * Sadachbia can"pass "as whatever race, class, or religious culture they wish.

Thus they excel in the tropical jungle countries, and in the pockets of jungle culture composed by migrants into the drier, colder lands.

Shakti of Shatabishaka * Sadachbia Nakshatra

commentary by Pdt. David Frawley

"Varuna desired,"May I be firm and not unsteady."

One who makes the appropriate offering to Varuna, to Shatabhishak,

  • becomes firm and not unsteady.

This firmness also implies freedom from disease and debility.

  • Shatabhishak is a Nakshatra of healing ."

Shakti of Shataviskaka Nakshatra

commentary by Dennis Harness

"24. Shatabisha: The Hundred Stars

(Aquarius 06 40 to 20 00 )

Shatabisha also translates as the hundred healers or the hundred flowers .

The primary deity is Varuna, the God of Medicine and the Cosmic Waters, which provides the natives with a strong connection to the healings arts. Varuna is the Cosmic Man pouring his healing waters unto humanity.

Astrologer Ronnie Gale Dreyer and author of Healing Signs has her natal Moon in this powerful nakshatra.

The shakti of Shatabisha is the power of healing .

The symbol for Shatabisha is an empty circle, reflecting the independent nature and autonomy experienced through this lunar mansion.

This nakshatra can also be a challenging birth star for early marriage.

Rahu, as the ruling planet of this asterism indicates a love for travel and adventure.

It has a rakshasa temperament with the primary motivation being dharma or right action."
