These stars are so clustered together they resemble clouds. This cluster of stars relates to humanity, the masses, and people. This is the epitome of the sign Aquarius, which is all about helping others. Aquarius is the original 11th house, and this house relates to helping those in need and humanitarians’ causes. Therefore, these are the qualities of Shatabhisha people; they are all about helping people, especially through healing.

Shatabhisha main symbol is an “Empty Circle’. A circle symbolizes cycle, nature laws, eternity, and the soul, which is immortal. The solar system is round, and planets revolve around the Sun. Also, nature has patterns and repeats in the cycle (circle). For instance, the four seasons are the pattern of nature. Additionally, the universe (space) is infinite, and scientists believe if one travels far into space, one will return to the same spot they started in (circle). The round zodiac chart (which is mainly used in western cultures) is a circle. Therefore, and Empty Circle is a very divine and mystical symbol
Deity Varuna Ruling Planet Rahu
Shatabhisha Nakshatra is ruled by the deity Varuna (The Comic water Deity). Varuna is related to the water element; therefore, liquids, fluids, and liquor (Soma) correspond to this deity. In images, Varuna holds in his hand a pot of Soma (food of the Gods); this is why liquor, alcoholic beverages, and intoxication is related to this nakshatra.
Shatabhisha Nakshatra is ruled by Rahu. The planet (Graha) Rahu relates to illusions, the hidden shadows, ghosts, and objects that block out the Sun. Many of these meanings correspond to this nakshatra.
Nature and Behavior of Shatabhisha Nakshatra People
Shatabhisha Nakshatra energy is a combination of the ruling planet Rahu, the ruling deities Varuna (Cosmic Water Deity), and the main symbol, an ‘Empty Circle. Therefore, people with Dhanishta strong in their chart will express the qualities of this nakshatra powerfully. When Dhanishta is strong in your chart, this means your Sun, Moon, Ascendant, or Atmakaraka is in Shatabhisha Nakshatra.
Shatabhisha people can easily conceal their identity. Therefore, they make excellent spies, private detectors, and computer hackers. They are the people who anonymously search online or have many social media accounts with different identities. This ability to hide and conceal is because Rahu rules Shatabhisha Nakshatra. Rahu relates to shadows, concealment, illusions, and anything that shades the Sun (hide from the public eye). Therefore, they are masters at being undetectable shadows.
Shatabhisha people are known to be very secretive. They keep oceans of secrets and can hide their motives, thoughts, and even experiences. Shatabhisha people can have experiences and never reveal to a soul what they have been through.
Shatabhisha people are healers of diseases that are difficult to cure, which are usually related to mental and psychological trauma. Shatabhisha people can be physical doctors, therapists, and psychologists, helping others heal their pain. They work with people trying to cure hard-to-cure illnesses like bipolar, schizophrenia, alcohol, and drug addiction. However, they may have to help a family or friend with alcohol addiction. In extreme cases, if Shatabhisha is damaged in the chart, one may face a mysterious physical alignment that is hard to diagnose or cure. Because Shatabhisha is related to ‘a thousand healers,’ they turn to alternative medicines for health alignments. They turn to Chinese or Oriental Medicines, Herbology, Acupuncture, and ayurvedic medicine.
Shatabhisha people are very intelligent and can process and retain information. They are very analytical and logical. Because of this, they often appear to have a ‘know-it-all personality and perspective in life. However, this is an illusion (Rahu) because, through the analytical faculty of the mind, it is impossible to know everything.
Shatabhisha natives are known as skywatchers. Because of this, Astrology is linked with this nakshatra. They have an interest in astrology, astronomy, stars, space, and the heavens. Because of this interest, they delve into metaphysical studies because they need to comprehend what is out there (in space) and beyond this physical world. They are the people who buy telescopes and look into the heavens with a deep fascination. The unexplained like ufo sightings and space conspiracy theories interest Shatabhisha natives.
Sun in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Sun in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people are natural healers, especially concerning their career. The Sun here represents their ego, their career, and their field of work. In the Nakshatra of healthcare, healing, and nourishing, these people have an aptitude for healthcare services. An important thing to note here is that these people don’t necessarily have a medical background, like having a doctorate. They could have studied an entirely different studying background, but later in life, they chose to go into the healthcare service field. These people have a healing aura that naturally affects others in their vicinity with a positive impact, both mentally and spiritually.
Most of these people have goals that transcend higher than this world. The way they heal others’ problems, it’s always directed by a goal of higher knowledge and achievement. People in this Nakshatra are often humanitarians and want to help the masses at large. However, the presence of the Sun here denotes that these people have to heal and help those around them, as it’s a way to inflate and satisfy their egos. In an alternative reality, these people could be working in technical fields or fields of their domain. Yet, they’ll possess a continuous urge inside them to help others, bringing about some change in the current situation of the world.
These people find the most optimal success in businesses of their own, as they’re not too good at taking orders from someone else, a typical trait of Sun placements. However, being influenced by Saturn’s long revolution period, these people won’t be granted success by the planet before they hit their mid-30s.
Moon in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Moon in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people are all about providing nourishment and healthcare to the masses. This is the perfect combination that makes the most nourishing yet skilled healthcare professionals. Why is that? It’s quite simple. The Moon is natural here. It creates nourishing and empathic aspects in a person’s personality. The Shatabhisha Nakshatra is a comprehensive spectrum that portrays the 100 physicians of God. It shows the healthcare field, and the urge to help those around you. Pairing both of these together, we get a stream of personality traits that allows people to nourish others professionally, which can include anything from doctors to nurses.
Like the previous placement, these people don’t necessarily have a medical background. While some people go through intensive training to become the highest level of doctors and healers, these people are natural. They’re born with a healing touch that allows them to nourish anything that comes their way, which is why helping others becomes an integral part of their life. The role of their mothers is quite fundamental in this position, as she’s the most important inspiration for these people to act, behave and help others, exactly as she did.
Being present in the middle of the sign of Aquarius, this Nakshatra inclines people to help others in any way possible. However, the use of science and tools will be more prone with this position because of Aquarius, which is why doctors are often seen in this position.
Mercury in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Mercury in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people are an advisor when it comes to healthcare. Mercury is a natural advisor and counselor. Present in the Nakshatra of healthcare, it gives people intrinsic knowledge and urges them to counsel those around them. However, instead of just plain advising, Shatabhisha Nakshatra makes the advice of these people more medical-related than general. Their career would be highly connected to the intricate medical networks of their homeland, where they will actively use their skills to provide healthcare counsel to those who need it the most.
In the modern age, this Nakshatra also stands for the use of modern technology. With Mercury in this Nakshatra, this means that the native will use the technology to an advantage. They’ll use the power of social media to actively provide medical counsel to the masses and fulfill their urge to heal and help others throughout the globe, all while sitting in the comfort of their own home. They’ll make use of platforms like Youtube, Instagram, and others to engage with their audience, help them overcome their medical difficulties, and satisfy their egos with this process.
Being co-ruled by Aquarius, this Nakshatra, especially paired with Mercury, can create difficulties in the love life of the native. These people need to work a lot just to sustain a relationship, let alone progress it into more of a happy state.
Venus in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Venus in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people have quite eccentric spouses. In addition to the robust eccentricity of the spouse, there’s a long, dark past of theirs to deal with as well. Ghosts from the past of their spouse may come out to haunt their relationship. Alternatively, what might happen is that their spouse’s past may come off as shocking to them, which changes how they view their partner. Due to this and the influence of Rahu in this Nakshatra, the spouse often comes off as someone who feels rejected by society. Yet, they live life as an outcast without worrying about it and do things their way.
In the Nakshatra of healthcare, Venus’ presence means that the spouse can heal. They have a healer’s touch that just heals anything that they get their hands on. Interestingly, these healing abilities are natural-born, and a medical professional isn’t the source of cultivation of this ability. The spouse could have any profession, yet at a single touch or interaction, they can easily make someone’s problems go away.
In addition to that, the spouse is a heavy drinker, and that becomes their coping mechanism when they’re down in the dumps or are feeling sad. Other than that, an obsession with the fascinations of space and galaxies can be seen in the spouse.
Mars in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Mars in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people are fiercely into helping others. Mars is a fierce planet. It creates vigor and strength inside the person its influences. When it is placed inside the Nakshatra of helping others and healthcare, things take a fiercely positive turn. These people have to help others to satisfy their hunger. All of their collective efforts go towards fulfilling a goal of healing, helping, and being of service to others in life, explicitly with a medical prospect. Since Mars is related to direct work and exertion of both the body and mind, these people are often seen as equipment specialists or, in rare situations, professional surgeons that use their skills to operate on people medically.
However, being good with technology, these people often aren’t just limited to the medical field. They could be working in high-tech engineering fields. Yet, the urge to help and heal others will still be the same, and the little things they do throughout the day will be of help to others. Additionally, the results of their hard work will show after quite a while, as this Nakshatra is under the influence of Saturn. Its long revolution period around the Sun accounts for the delay in success and positive results in the native’s life.
Jupiter in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Jupiter in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people will experience a lot of delays in life. These people have to work twice as hard to get ordinary results due to Jupiter’s low dignity and Saturn’s strong influence in this Nakshatra placement. However, despite these delays, these people go out of their way to heal and help those around them and have a natural knack for it. Jupiter is a planet that is associated with finance, money, and counseling. The Shatabhisha Nakshatra gives knowledge-sharing and advisory traits to people, aspects which are used by these people to heal others in their vicinity.
However, concerning religion and their belief system, things take an unexpected turn. The concurrent energy exchange that occurs between Jupiter and Rahu turns the natives’ attention away from their religious beliefs. People like this develop their own set of morals and tend to not follow any particular religious pathways or beliefs. These people deviate from the standard approach to religion, but it is something that seems to work out for them.
In terms of relationships, Saturn’s influence creates a lot of pressure and stress. There’s a lot to be done just to make the relationship. Stability is only achieved later in life when the native hits the age of 35 or more. In comparison to the partner, the native has to adjust to a lot of things to make the relationship work, which is why it never works out in the first place.
Saturn in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people are very mystic and have a certain aptitude for astrology. Saturn and Rahu have a strong force when it comes to directing people deep into the mystics, and since both of these are influencing this Nakshatra, it’s only natural for people to go into these field options. They have an urge inside them to explore the unknown and find out the hidden hints that the universe throws at them. Depending on what other planets are situated with Saturn in this position decides the careers for this field. However, as a basic rule of thumb, various professions that these people supposedly thrive in are mathematics, healing, medicine, law, astrology, mysticism, and some more.
A very interesting phenomenon happens with Saturn placements. The 10th house from the planet is what the main karma of these people is. The main focus point is the 10th house. These people could be working in any field, whether it’s working in an IT field, or healing people with their medical skills. However, whatever is present in the 10th house from the planet Saturn is where their focus always lies.
Rahu in Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Rahu in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people has materialistic desires and outcome expectations when they help others. Rahu sits in its own Nakshatra here, which means that this position is quite strong, with Rahu’s influence on the personality of these people even stronger. Since this Nakshatra represents the process of healing others, the healthcare field, and many other things. This means that these people, like the previous placements, will help and heal others. However, there is no higher goal to achieve. These people will do it solely for materialistic desires, which can include anything from being praised, inflation of their ego, money, and many more materialistic prospects.
However, with time and by serving other people, Rahu’s materialistic grasp on these people is often lightened. Though it’s a long process of helping, providing service, and healing those around them without wanting anything out of them, it’s quite possible.
Another thing to note here is that these people are tech-savvy. They’re quite good with any new technology that lands on the market, and quickly get accustomed to it. That’s why careers for these Nakshatra people include a range of different options, which include engineering, IT development, data science, and many more.
Ketu In Shatabhisha Nakshatra
Ketu in Shatabhisha Nakshatra people possesses an inherent quality factor in healing others. Ketu, a representation of our past lives, is in the Nakshatra of healing and helping, influenced by both Rahu and Saturn. This means that these people, in their past lives, have been great healers and helpers of the masses. To their body and soul, it only feels familiar and right to be of help to others, as it feels the right thing to do. It’s what their past self would have done, and those chunks of life from their previous life force them to do so.
However, these people don’t follow the common path when they’re healing or helping others. Like the previously mentioned placements, these people do heal others. However, Ketu represents the alternative ways in which healing is done. Hence, these people pave their new way in providing others with help and healing. Although, due to their past life experience, they’ll feel a bit disconnected and weird regarding serving others, and it’s not until they mature in life that they get a sense of who they are, and what they want to do.
In terms of relationships, however, these people have bad luck. Due to the influence of their past lives, the conjunction of Ketu and Saturn creates a blurry barrier for them. They’re unable to form a strong connection with anyone, as they always feel disconnected from their partner, both terms, mentally and physically. A lot has to be done just to overcome this barrier, which is why their relationships don’t often work.
