Revati_JohnWilliamWaterhouse_LadyofShalott_1888.jpg
The painting above "The Lady of Shalott" by John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) is based on the poem The Lady of Shalott, by Alfred Lord Tennyson.

"And down the river's dim expanse

Like some bold seer in a trance,

Seeing all his own mischance --

With a glassy countenance

Did she look to Camelot.

And at the closing of the day

She loosed the chain, and down she lay;

The broad stream bore her far away,

The Lady of Shalott."

~~ Shantideva May I be protector for those without one,

A guide for all travellers on the way

May I be a bridge, a boat and a ship

For all who wish to cross (the water).”

Jyeztha Nakshatra belongs to the Nakshatra Trikona of Messenger Budha the Announcer: Azlesa+ Jyeztha+ Revati

those born into these three nakshatra are particularly gifted in all varieties of communicative endeavor, to name only a few:

  • conversational, narrative, signaling, reporter, announcer
  • itinerary, planning, scheduling
  • coupler-joiner, sexual, manipulative, interactive, collaborative
  • cohort, teamwork, ensemble, management, commerce, business
  • logical, explanatory, instructional, explanatory, interpretive,
  • diagramming, drafting-drawing, handcraft, technology-tools
  • inter alia


Revati belongs to the Nakshatra trikona of conversational, analytical sexual, manipulative hands-on Budha

However in each case Professor Budha holds an unfriendly relationship to the razi-pathi, and this often results in the communicated messages being somewhat adversarial or abrasive in nature:

  • Azlesa* Karkata ruler Chandra. Although Chandra the Glow has no enemies, and Somana is patiently parental toward young whippersnapper Budha, the quietly rhythmic, intuitive, routine-loving Chandra is disliked by chatty conversational Budha. Azlesa are often willing to represent, describe, discuss, or write about squeamish sexual-emotional (Budha-Chandra) topics, particularly matters of sexualized parenting, or binding, leashing, or tied restraint. Azlesa-Naga the Coiling Ones are famed for their remarkable capacity to mentally manipulate (Budha) the vulnerable human feelings (Chandra).

  • Jyeztha * Vrizchika ruler Kuja. Although Professor Budha feels neutral toward do-it-now Kuja, Professor Mangala is supremely frustrated by Budha's habit of talking rather than doing. Mangala explicitly dislikes Budha. Unless Budha is very well placed, Jyeztha natives are not known for their interest in entertaining alternative points of view nor do they normally feature a tolerance for ambiguity. However Jyeztha excel in matters which combine words with vigorous movement, such as action-cinema, politically motivational writing, inspirational talk that provokes an active response (such as change-oriented psychological counseling), and preaching mixed with physically energized liturgies (for example, declaiming rituals, glossolalia ritual. lit-urgy = "words with actions".)

  • Revati * Meena ruler Guru. Brihaspati, the Professor of Theory, Principle, and the Big Picture, explicitly dislikes detail-oriented, technology-fixated, scripted and chattering "street-talker" Professor Budha. Revati may struggle to precisely express their ideas in normal conversational mode, where they may wander off-message. However, Revati can flourish in way-showing communications by using big-picture sensing modalities, such as imagistic, dreamlike fine-arts painting and sculpture, or any variety of music (often splendid singers).

Shakti of the Revati Nakshatra

commentary by Dennis Harness

"27. Revati: The Wealthy (Pisces 16 40 to 30 00 )

The symbols for Revati are a fish and a drum.

  • The fish is a symbol of deep spirituality as well as the twelfth sign of Pisces.
  • The drum is a marker of time reflecting the final lunar mansion according to the constellations.

This auspicious nakshatra has a deva temperament with a primary motivation of moksha, or spiritual enlightenment. The deity is Pushan, the nurturer and protector of travelers and animals.

Revati is ruled by the intellectual planet Mercury, residing in a constellation ruled by benefic Jupiter.

The animal symbol is a female elephant.

The shakti is the power of nourishment symbolized by milk . Revati is one of the most benefic nakshatras for spiritual growth and development of psychic abilities."

Revati Nakshatra

commentary by Pdt. David Frawley:

"Pusha desired, "May I become the lord of the animals."

  • One who makes the appropriate offering to Pusha, to Revati,

  • becomes lord of the animals.

Revati gives lordship over domestic cattle, richness of harvest and fertile fields.

Those born under this Nakshatra like the good things of life

  • but as are in harmony with nature."

Revati Nakshatra commentary by BPL:

Pushan the Conductor

* the trail-guide

* the wayshower

* the ferryboat captain

* the shepherd

Guru and Budha have a somewhat adversarial relationship because they both compete for the mental attention.

  • Professor Guru wishes to call one's attention to theoretical, ideological philosophy and inclusive reality

  • Professor Budha wants to call the attention to the minutia of daily life and worldly business.

Naturally Guru dislikes Budha the Teenager who has no view of the long-term future however Budha simply disregards Wise Teacher Guru therefore Budha is not bothered.

As a result the native is typically rather lucky , able to move freely from one mental engagement to the next, like a monkey with long agile arms swinging from one tree branch to the next. Revati are typically unconcerned with matters of the distant past, and although capable short-term planners due to the Budha influence Revati are not worried or even much aware of broader philosophical issues.

  • As always with the impressionable Budha -ruled nakshatra, Budha's rashi ruker and bhava lord will determine the behavioral outcome.

  • As a general rule, Revati the Shining Light = very nice, but not very deep

Pazu = flock of animals, or any source of "moveable wealth". Revati = The one in possession of treasury, the one with financial well-being.

Pashupati (Shiva) the lord of animals calls attention to the freedom, alacrity, and grace of animal movement from one small concern to the next. Animals are blessed by a lack of engagement with the larger truths of existence. Animals are focused on the minutia of their immediate environment (Budha) and seem to be protected by God from the suffering caused by complex human problems.

Pushan = the ferryman, yearning to cross over, shooting in great curves like a star, a great arch, a rainbow, or a bridge, or the suckers of a wide-spreading plant.


Revati likes to guide + rescue those who deserve special protection: children and animals .

  • Natives are often found in pediatric and veterinary medicine, social work, family law, emergency response.

  • Also animal protective shelters and activism.

Chandra in Revati = particularly strong in the child-rescue activity, following their dharma to lead children on a path away from harm

Under influence of Shani (laws and social programs), the Budha-ruled Revati may serve as Advancers of child-safety laws, infant-care education, and family-support programming.

Loves one's own children passionately, but need not produce own children to enact the Revati dharma of caring for, protecting, leading children out of harm's way (and animals and the weak) .

Revati often realizes it is necessary to save or protect the mother in order to rescue the child, so engagement with mother-child social activism is common in this Nakshatra

Revati males may go to the extent of marrying the mother in order to help the child.

Males with Revati in either the radical lagna or the navamsha lagna are frequently adoptive parents, adopting children either by preference or as a supplement to producing biological offspring.

Since you have a completely independent life

You draw premature conclusions on any matter.

You are god fearing, superstitious, religious

  • and rigid in the observance of orthodox culture and principles.


You are stubborn and ambitious. Even a slightest failure of ideas or plan will give you maximum torture.

You cannot stick to any particular field of work or job for long.


You cannot expect to gain much compared to the ratio between work and reward till your 50th year.

  • both financially, mentally and socially.

It is only after your 50th year you can think of a worriless and stable life.

14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso . (2001).

Dzogchen: The Heart Essence of the Great Perfection.

Thupten Jinpa and Richard Barron (Trans.), Patrick Gaffney (Ed.), foreword by Sogyal Rinpoche.

"Question: How can Dzogchen help us in our daily jobs and careers?


Dalai Lama: ...it is quite difficult to have an experience of Dzogchen,

but once you do have that experience, it can be extremely beneficial in dealing with your day to day life, your job, and your career.

This is because that kind of experience will give you the ability to prevent yourself from being overwhelmed by circumstances, good or bad.

You will not fall into extreme states of mind: you will not get over-excited or depressed.

Your attitude toward circumstances and events will be

  • As if you were someone observing the mind, without being drawn away by circumstances.

For example, when you see a reflection of a form in a mirror, the reflection appears within the mirror

  • but it is not projected from within. In the same way,

  • when you confront the situations of life, or deal with others,

  • your attitude too will be mirror-like.

Also, when a reflection appears in the mirror, the mirror does not have to go after the object that is reflected:

  • it simply reflects, spontaneously, on the surface.

    The same with you: since there is no attachment or agitation at having these 'reflections' in your mind,

    you will feel tremendous ease and relief.

You are not preoccupied by what arises in the mind, nor does it cause you any distress.

You are free from conceptuality or any form of objectifying.

And so it really does help you,

in allowing you to be free from being caught up in the play of emotion s like hatred, attachment, and the like."

The Path to Enlightenment

  • by 14th Dalai Lama 1935- Policy of Kindness Tenzing Gyatso

  • edited and translated by Glenn H. Mullin

  • p. 97

"Seeking a Place of Refuge.

A spiritual aspirant requires a model, something he or she can look up to as an ideal and thus find guidance and inspiration. In Buddhism this is the Triple Gem, or the Three Jewels of Refuge: the Buddhas, Dharma and Sangha.

When we think of the fully enlightened Buddhas--the beings who have purified their minds of all stains and obscurations and who have expanded their wisdom to the limits of existence--we feel very attracted and awed; but somehow there always seems to be a great distance between the Buddhas and us.

  • Therefore, there is the refuge of Sangha, the community of spiritual aspirants, the assembly of practitioners dwelling in the various stages of practice and attainment.

These beings provide us with a perspective on the path. We have to look up to the Sangha, but not as far as to the Buddhas. The Sangha make us think,"This person is not that far ahead of me. If I just make a bit more effort...." They give us confidence for spiritual practice. Sometimes they make us feel like we can even race them to enlightenment.

  • These are the Sangha of spiritual friends.

Thoughts of the Buddhas make us numb with admiration; thoughts of the Sangha cause us to jump to it and to apply ourselves with zeal to the spiritual path. This path and the methods for traversing it are the third Jewel of Refuge, the Dharma.

  • This is the collection of teachings to be practiced and the realizations to be attained."
