Mercury in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra
Mercury in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra people are often the type of person that like guiding and counseling others. Though this is quite an average position, since it’s ruled by the enemy sign of Jupiter, this hostility is canceled out by the presence of a friendly Nakshatra ruled by the planet, Venus.

Venus in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra
Venus in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra people have a higher grasp on the knowledge of their domain, which is higher knowledge and creative things. People like these love doing new things, and don’t limit themselves to a single aspect or domain in their own life. Here, Venus is in its own Nakshatra but is neutralized because it is in a placement ruled by the neutral sign of Jupiter. Due to this, the counseling and advising traits of Jupiter are instilled in people like these, and they love to share and teach others with their knowledge base. Excellent reasoning is a quality that is often seen in people in this Nakshatra.

In addition to that, this Nakshatra is also known for its segregation and rationalizing qualities, termed the Nakshatra of Rationalization.

Like Venus, Mars possesses a lot of segregation abilities as well. However, the only difference is that this time around, it’s segregating the line between the good and the bad around them, but since it’s always based on their own beliefs and views, it may not always be perfect.
This position is highly valuable for someone that fancies the teaching profession and wants to get a job in the education field. People in this Nakshatra are very competitive when it comes to their education, and will go above and beyond just to pass their scholarly competitors. Though these people often have excellent careers in both the education field and the athletic one, oftentimes they turn into corny fundamentalists, strictly adhering to their religious beliefs and not listening to a word of what their peers have to say. That is why these kinds of people need to make sure they don’t fall into that pit and be open to anything and everything.
Jupiter in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra
Jupiter in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra people are often keen on doing a postgraduate degree. In this particular placement, though Jupiter is sitting in its sign, it sits in a Nakshatra that is ruled by Venus, its enemy sign, making it an average position. However, the strive and motivation to gain knowledge isn’t the only thing that people with this Nakshatra possess. Jupiter is a planet that is quite humble and giving, especially when it comes to spreading its wisdom and knowledge. People like these have an intrinsic trait of talking openly to people and becoming this portal of knowledge about various things that other people have no idea about.
An important thing to note here is that attaining knowledge or getting a postgraduate degree isn’t something that these people just have to do. While studying more does equal having more knowledge, for people with this Nakshatra, having a degree or not doesn’t prove their knowledge base. They just have a lot of wisdom to give out regardless. In addition to all of the above, these people are highly rational. They’re very good at making decisions and funneling down things to the best of their options, and guide others in making important decisions as well.
Where these people do lack is in their love life. Jupiter being in an enemy sign creates frustration and stress for them when they’re close to someone, or are beginning to fall for another person. Their highly rational mind becomes the source of many arguments and disputes that happen in their relationship, which rarely stabilizes under their late 30s and 40s.
Saturn in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra

People with this Nakshatra have the mind to achieve their dreams through sheer hard work and focus. Like most Saturn placements, these people often go through hard conditions during their early years, and specifically with this Nakshatra, these people struggle with education during their childhood. However, this struggle is what makes them so hardworking. They learn in their early years that success in life not only comes through birth-given talent but through focus and hard work as well.
Another aspect that is highly Saturn-specific is that people like these often get harsh teachers and gurus in their life. This becomes a big reason for their demotivated behavior towards the field of education, and oftentimes, the reason for their excessive hard work. Additionally, the Purva Ashadha Nakshatra, being the Nakshatra for sharing wisdom and knowledge, instills a soft yet knowledgeable personality in them.
When it comes to money and finances, these people aren’t born with the best luck in town. They’re the people that work hard to get food on the table. They’re highly work-oriented, and try to give their work and business their undivided attention. Consequently, this becomes an obstruction in their love life, as they’re always busy with work, and can never make time for the people that they love. Arguments in their relationships often happen because of this sole reason.
Rahu in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra
What is Rahu: In astrological terms, Rahu is the demon whose hunger is never fulfilled or satisfied. Rahu is always wanting more and more, especially the things we enjoy the most in life.

It’s something they look forward to. What’s interesting is that things with Rahu happen the exact opposite of Saturn. People with this Nakshatra have a trouble-free childhood, but start to face problems when they take up postgraduate degrees in their search for higher education. Additionally, like most other Purva Ashadha Nakshatra placements, a highly rational mind will be seen here as well. This allows this kind of people to have a highly reasoning-based thought process, which helps them in making optimal decisions for themselves, as well as helping others in doing the same as well.
As for career options, these people are highly academic. You’ll often see this kind of people in teaching and academic fields, places where their knowledge keeps on increasing and increasing. In their personal life, the presence of Rahu creates a lot of problems, especially when they have to emotionally deal with other people in their life.
Ketu In Purva Ashadha Nakshatra
Ketu in Purva Ashadha Nakshatra people are highly research-oriented. These people love to study, and that’s why they act as knowledge portals for the other people in their life. However, with Ketu in this Nakshatra, their focus isn’t only just on education-based fields, but on the matters of spirituality and the mystical side of life as well. This is because like people, they’re very curious. The more people like these learn, the more they think highly of themselves, which becomes a big motivation for them to strive for higher education. In addition to that, these people are also very deep thinkers, and while some people label them as overthinkers, in reality, they just tend to scour all of their options in every aspect of life, in an attempt to make the best decision for themselves.
An important thing to keep in mind here is that Ketu is a planet that represents splitting, breaking up, separation, and various other similar things. In terms of relationships, this can mean a lot of things for people with this Nakshatra, which aren’t too positive. These people often tend to be either mentally detached from their relationships, or physically. They’ll feel like they’re stuck between two different worlds. They’ll feel like they’re being sucked by a black hole from both sides, which can be mentally exhausting. That’s why relationships for these people don’t work quite often, and it demands a lot of focus and hard work.
