Dhanishta people need to understand that they must be considerate of others and their needs.

Still, they may feel empty because they may not have a partner to share it with. They can have their dream house but come home to an empty nest. Because of this Dhanishta people experience a lot of lack of fulfillment in relationships. This is due because two hallows (empty) instruments (drum and flue) are associated with this Nakshatra.

Sun in Dhanishta Nakshatra
People with Sun in Dhanishta Nakshatra have perfect timing that can lead to career advancement. They seem to show up and the right time and place where there is an opportunity to boost their careers. They can have a career dealing with a large amount of money, land, real estate, and in the musical industry. However, since Sun rules the ego, they have to be careful not the let the materialistic side of life turn them into superficial people.
Sun in Dhanishta Nakshatra people are mostly seen working in the fields of finance. Under both the influence of Capricorn and Aquarius, these people will be seen dealing with the finance and law-making bodies of their homeland. This is because, in this instance, the Sun signifies one’s career in their life, while this Nakshatra, signifies wealth and finance. Putting two and two together, and the rest is history. However, in the Aquarius spectrum, these people are more prone to affiliating themselves with large organizations, instead of just being stuck in a boring 9 to 5 job.
The people that possess this Nakshatra have a strange tie between the amount of wealth they have and their mental wellness. The more money they make, the more they become satisfied with themselves, and the more mentally stable they are. All of their worldly pursuits are only for materialistic gains, which can include anything from money and wealth to recognition and fame. Talking about fame, this Nakshatra also signifies the musical talent in one, which can take the native to a celebrity status if honed correctly. What’s interesting here is that these people have to gain huge amounts of wealth and recognition for themselves, as they tend to tie their mental state and health into achieving these materialistic goals.
Relationships matters aren’t too complicated with this Nakshatra. That is until the 7th lord is involved in this position. What happens after that can be quite troublesome. Pointless arguments with their partners become a common thing, and the relationship has to navigate a lot of troubling waters before it can thrive.
Moon in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Moon in Dhanishta Nakshatra people handles financial problems and matters exceptionally well. To begin with, the Dhanishta Nakshatra signifies all the elements that revolve around wealth, money, and finance. Combined with the calming personality of the Moon, it creates financial advising and problem-solving skills in the people that possess this Nakshatra. Yet, this doesn’t only just stretch to their career life. Oftentimes these people don’t take up financial careers. Despite that, they can be very good at managing money, especially in their own house. These are the people that take up the leading role of the house, and manage the money flows that come in and out.
Musical careers thrive in this Nakshatra, especially the ones where instruments are more involved than the vocal skill of the native. This is the same for both Aquarius and Capricorn influence in this Nakshatra region. The difference starts with the use of authority by these people. When Aquarius is involved, these people like to serve other people using their authoritative status. On the other hand, with Capricorn’s effect, their authority status and pursuits are solely done for fame and recognition, and not any hidden pious reasons.
Though Moon-influenced people can easily make relationships and connect with other people, things take a different turn here. The celibacy element of this Nakshatra creates a hard time for these people to form relationships, where they either will not get in one or will experience serious problems once they do.
Mercury in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Mercury in Dhanishta Nakshatra people have a hard time balancing their relationships with other aspects of their life. This type of position is quite average, as Mercury is present in an enemy Nakshatra under the two signs of Capricorn and Aquarius. Since this is the Nakshatra that signifies marital problems and celibacy, the native will have to work ten times as hard to sustain their relationship. They’ll have to sacrifice a lot of things and be the bigger, maturer person in the relationship at various turns for it to work.
Career-wise, this placement doesn’t stray too far from the normative aspects of Dhanishta Nakshatra. These people have a lot of familiarity and skill when it comes to managing wealth and finance and ultimately choose to go into this field as advisors or entrepreneurs. However, under the influence of Aquarius, these people will be more inclined to serve humanity than to gain recognition and fame. Besides that, these people can make quite intuitive lawyers as well, especially when their Nakshatra is influenced by the sign of Capricorn. Litigations, governmental attorneys, and law counseling are just among the many professions that are seen from this placement.
Venus in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Venus in Dhanishta Nakshatra people are blessed with a pretty strong-natured spouse. Their spouse is extremely work-oriented, which forms the basis of their stable mental health. That’s why they never leave their work, even after marriage or the birth of their children. However, one of the most important things associated with this position is the spouse’s obsession and love for music. They’re the type of people that can’t do any work or chores if there’s no music playing in the background. This love for music is what makes them the life of the party. They always want to go to musical concerts, and dance to their favorite songs, creating an entertaining and musical environment for everybody around them.
An important thing to discuss here is that the native will have a lot of wealth flowing into their life if they take care of their life. If these people truly care for their wife, love her for who she is, and create a loving atmosphere for her, wealth starts pouring into their life. However, the opposite of this is possible as well. If the spouse is mistreated when she shouldn’t be, the wealth slowly goes away. People have told of incidents where they could visibly see the wealth come and go in both situations, so it’s as real as it gets. In addition to being a hard workers, the spouses of Dhanishta Nakshatra people are highly technical. They’re the ones that fix the things around the house, regardless of their gender.
Mars in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Mars in Dhanishta Nakshatra people are incredibly brave and courageous. They’re the ones that can do anything once they put their heart into it, and are brave, fearless fighters about the things they love. Mars’s presence, in this context, is the strongest, as it is present in its own Nakshatra. Not only brave, but these people are also very ambitious and aim to achieve all of their challenging goals in the shortest time possible. Career-wise, these people are hard workers that tirelessly work to get into authoritative positions and get the roles they think they deserve.
It’s important to note that getting authority in the work-places is important for these people. Their egos will never be satisfied until they work hard enough to be promoted to more of an authority figure. If they don’t, they will always feel like an integral part of their soul is missing. Their fierce and courageous personalities are often utilized in law-enforcing bodies of the government. However, oftentimes, entrepreneurs are seen from this Nakshatra as well. However, it is most times, solely done to gain an authoritative status over both themselves and the people they surround themselves with.
This Nakshatra is great with regards to career-building, but lacks relationships and forming meaningful connections. These people face a lot of trouble after they get into a relationship, with a lot of ego battles fought between them and their partners.
Jupiter in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Jupiter in Dhanishta Nakshatra people are not too blessed when it comes to their relationships. Even though the planet is present in a friendly Nakshatra influenced by Mars, it’s losing its dignity, which makes this a hard position for relationship-savvy individuals. People with this Nakshatra will willingly create circumstances for themselves so they can’t get into a serious relationship. Either that happens, or they just face a lot of problems when they do get into a committed relationship or marriage. However, Jupiter being the Karaka of married life and possessing advisory traits, these people are often experts in advising others about relationships. They don’t say “coaches don’t play” for nothing.
However, career-wise this positioning is quite good. In the Nakshatra of wealth and finance, Jupiter expands the expertise and domain of careers for these people. The materialistic gains, which include money and fame, are positively influenced by Jupiter in this position, meaning that a person with this Nakshatra will gain a lot in the fields of music, advisory, guidance, and counseling. They will often be seen dealing with real estate businesses as well, where they will advise other people regarding where to invest and where not to.
Additionally, being in a Saturn-influenced placement, these people are destined to have a lot of wealth in their pockets. The only condition is that it comes a little later in life, mimicking the long revolution of Saturn around the sun.
Saturn in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Saturn in Dhanishta Nakshatra people are extremely hard working. These are the people that might not be blessed with abundant wealth and resources in their early years, but like with most Saturn placements, these things gradually come in their later years. Saturn is present in its enemy Nakshatra, and while that can be troublesome, under both Capricorn and Aquarius, it is influenced by its signs, which makes this a neutral position.
People that possess this Nakshatra work hard to achieve their financial goals since they aren’t blessed financially in their initial years. Like all other Dhanishta Nakshatra, the desire to have authority over can be seen in this position. However, that kind of authority demands a lot of work, which is why these people work harder than the average person.
Saturn is quite a strict planet. Similar to how it creates strictness in the routine of a person, it creates boundaries and restrictions in relationships as well. Combining this with the Marital Conflicts induced by this Nakshatra, these people will have a hard time maintaining relations with other people, especially the romantic kind.
Rahu in Dhanishta Nakshatra
Rahu in Dhanishta Nakshatra people can have a never-ending hunger for power, especially when Rahu is under the influence of Capricorn. These people are always finding ways to gain power, something that gives them a sense of authority over other people. Being a powerful planet, the urge to gain this authority and power isn’t easily satisfied, and mental peace is never attained by these people until these goals are met. Career-wise, despite how low they are in the company status, they’ll be plotting schemes and ways to get to the top, and eventually become CFO and CEO in the corporate world.
Besides this thirst for power, there’s a strong attraction to the domain of engineering. These people love to mechanically deal with things, and engineering is the one field where they can satisfy this attraction. These people are quite good with technology, especially in this ever-progressing age of modern technology. Careers where new technology is handled as a service to the government, or one’s country, are mostly filled with people from this Nakshatra.
Yet, things take a different turn when Aquarius influences Rahu in this Nakshatra. When that happens, the gain of power is never for materialistic reasons. It’s solely to help those in need, and pious reasons, such as making the world a better place. Even though the thirst for power is hardly ever quenched, this placement creates a more sympathetic element in the native’s personality.
Ketu In Dhanishta Nakshatra
Ketu in Dhanishta Nakshatra people had a past-life based experience when talking about wealth and money. These people will feel similarities when dealing with the topics of finance, even though they might not have any experience in this life. Their experience transcends way beyond the boundaries of this world. This is why people with this Nakshatra find great success in the fields of finance, especially when they’re dealing with wealth in the form of real estate businesses.
A high amount of wealth is destined for people like these. That can come through a long, passed down generational wealth treasury, or the sheer hard work they put in their work. Yet, their access to this uncountable wealth will only be given until later in life, as this is a Saturn-influenced position. Things happen slowly but surely with Saturn positions, and that’s what’s happening here. Ketu in this position influences the counseling aspects of the personality of these people. That’s why people that possess this Nakshatra go on to have a long-lasting careers in advising others in the matters of finance and wealth.
In terms of relationships, these people are stuck in a never-ending war. When they’re in one, they always feel like they’re not invested in their connection with their partner, both physically and mentally. On the other hand, when they’re single, they always desire a meaningful connection with another individual.
