Characteristics of Pushya Nakshatra in Astrology
The animal of Pushya is a Goat.
Everyone mistake the animal as a cow, but it’s the cow udder that is the symbolism of Pushya, not the animal.
Studying a goat will show a lot about a Pushya native. Goats have amazing eyes; they see everything around them almost to 280º.
They see a wider perspective of the world vs. what we see which is only around 90º, that too only 30º in focus.
Pushya natives see life in a very broad way, they don’t feel they need to attach or focus on one specific thing; they want to know the world.
Goats have the ability to swallow food and later bring it back to chew it, this shows Pushya people swallow their food more than chewing because their digestive system is much stronger and cable of breaking down food without too much of chewing.
Another way to look at this is Pushya person will always bring things from their past to show what they had to endure during that time.
If a friend hurts and make up with them later, the Pushya native will remind how they hurt them, it’s like bringing past food out onto their tongue.
There are funny Youtube videos of Goats fainting, which is simply a genetic disorder that doesn’t help them control their muscles.
Pushya people are known to have vibrating muscles, twinkling in their fingers and sometimes they cannot control the movement of their hands as if they are getting cerebral palsy, usually this occurs with getting into a panic situation.
Goats are extremely protective of themselves and their young ones, which make sense with Pushya as it’s a nakshatra of nourishing and lies in the sign of Cancer.
If you noticed that Pushya lies in the heart of Cancer which means Saturn lies in the heart of all water signs.
It shows a lot about Saturn’s character, which is of a nourisher, emotional warrior or the one who shows us true nourishment, wealth and comfort.
It gives us comfort of home, death, and higher realm.
The story of Pushya is quite interesting.
Brihaspati (Jupiter), the deity of Pushya nakshatra, is the Guru to Gods and was always busy doing yagnas, rituals and teaching Vedas.
He also taught law, politics and economics.
Brihaspati was the most brilliant student except for Shukracharya (planet Venus).
As they grew up Brihaspati became too engrossed in his teachings and works at the palace while Venus became the teacher of the asuras (demons), the new age workers.
Brihaspati ignored his family and wife, Tara. As a result she eloped with Chandra (Moon) and became pregnant having Budha (Mercury) as their son.
Jupiter waged war on Chandra and began to attack him with the army of devas, while Venus sided with Chandra because Jupiter ignored the most important dharma and karma towards his wife.
Venus helped Chandra in the war, and after the bloody battle Jupiter realized his mistake and accepted Mercury as his step son, and took back Tara.
