Solar Eclipse in Swati Nakshatra

This solar eclipse is happening in the nakshatra of Swati which is all about movement, leadership and ego.

Ancient Vedic seers considered this nakshatra as the abode of Goddess Saraswati. So, this eclipse is an amazing time for learning and education.

Swati nakshatra is ruled by Vayu – The Wind God. Unless you have a direction, you may feel restless and could end up being all over the place.

This asterism is often referred to as the “Self going star” or “Independent star”. You may feel the need for freedom and would not like to be tied down. The eclipse in swati nakshatra may inspire you to make bold and courageous moves and do things out of the box, as it is ruled by Rahu. It is important to find a balance between expressing your individuality vs team work.

We have to watch out for the tendency to be adamant about how things should be (my way or highway), it will be wise to listen and carefully consider what others have to say as well.

Being ruled by Vayu – The Wind God – It brings about purification of our own inner self which will be reflected in our relationship with others.

The power of this nakshatra is “Pradhvamsa Shakti” – the power to disperse like the wind. It is wise to use this energy to cut through all the negativity that has been bogging you down, instead of allowing it to distract your thoughts and mind in all possible directions.

Swati Nakshatra also will inspire us to dig deep for secrets and insights about our own self and our relationships.
It is important to understand that each one of us will be more “delicate” and “vulnerable” and we are all going to be in this together. So it is wise to think before we speak and be doubly sure that our words do not create turbulence in the mind of our loved ones.

Pranayama and Swati Nakshatra

Prana is nothing but the vayu(wind) with us that keeps us alive. To imbibe the positive aspects of Swati nakshatra, it is recommended to practice Pranayama.

Lord Hanuman is the son of Vayu the wind God. Lord Hanuman is invincible and so is our prana – even science has proved that energy can only be transformed it cannot be destroyed.

Chant the Mantra Aum Vayave Namah today to Honor Lord Vayu the deity of Swati Nakshatra.

Tip – Before you send your marketing emails or any other marketing activity to spread the word about your product Honor Lord Vayu always!

Libra is the natural 7th house of relationships and partnerships

This eclipse brings “relationships” to the forefront. It’s time to tear open the mask and reveal your true beautiful self especially in relation to people who are closest to you. Often times, to safe guard ourself from getting hurt, we draw a boundary and start wearing an armor made up of ego. We are happy to be distanced without enjoying the true intimacy of any relationship just to make sure we are not hurt either emotionally or out of the need to be respected. This eclipse will teach us approach relationships with the “heart” rather than “head” as Venus is also involved.

Tendencies of Moon in Swati

You – what is the direction to get to this address?

Stranger – you can take this road I know it’s the easiest and safest and I travel everyday on it. Take a left keep following the signs and in the junction make another right keep going and you will reach.

You – Dear Moon, let’s follow this and get to where we want to go.

Moon in Swati to you – I know what’s best. I don’t have to follow that everyone follows. I will take you to your destination. I will create a path a direction and I will travel on it!

After sometimes moon gets lost

You – we could have followed that direction why did we go on this route?

Moon in swati – nevermind, I know how to get into a problem and I know the solution as well. I will get you to the destination no matter what! But in my own way!

Moon in Swati Nakshatra would love to create it’s own story, own path. But the risk is, it wants to be on its own rather than being right and may get into its own mess which is certainly not needed! And it justifies its action all the time 🤓

This will help you understand the tendencies that may come up during this eclipse.

The energies during eclipse are very strong, so feel positive and grateful for everything you have and stop your complaining mind with Japa, meditation and spiritual sadhana. If you are looking for prosperity in your life, then eclipse is the perfect time to align with prosperity instead of focusing our attention on what we do not have.
