Jyeshta Nakshatra in Astrology | Health, Financial & Relationship Prediction

The People born in Jyeshta Nakshatra in Astrology are born for great work. The meaning of the word 'Jyeshta' is elder, senior, first, or the chief. Yogathara of Jyeshta is Antares. Antares is the brightest, most massive, and the most evolved stellar member of the nearest OB association. Antares is nearing the end of its lifespan and is expected to explode as a supernova in the next million years. Even in this sense, the name Jyeshtha or elder is appropriate. Jyeshta is the eldest of 27 sisters. She felt betrayed and jealous because Soma, their husband, favoured Rohini, who is younger than her.

Jyeshta nakshatra in Vedic astrology is one of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras (or the Nakshatras, which have their mouths curved). In these nakshatras, things related to roads, dams, the expansion of metals, chariots, boats, etc., can be auspiciously begun and performed.

Jyeshta Nakshatra in Astrology

Symbol: An Earring
The symbol for Jyeshtha is an earring. This indicates the development of nerves in the ears and the ability to respond to sounds during this period.

Deity: The Indhra
Indhra is the deity of Jyeshtha. Indhra means the one who controls Indhriya or senses. Indhra is considered a producer of earth and sky. He maintains the earth and the mountains. He is always frightened because someone could ascend to his throne. Getting immersed in music, dance, and the enjoyments of heaven is his weakness.

Vedic Story of Jyeshta Nakshatra
Jyeshta Nakshatra is also the king of the gods. In many Vedic stories, you would find that Indhra is engrossed in enjoyments, and the Dhaithya suddenly attack the Dheva. We also knew about him as a son of Aadhithi or one of the Aadhithya. This indicates that when the Indhriya or organs are engrossed in enjoyments, the demonic qualities automatically grab us.
