The deity of Rohini is Brahma. Brahm means universe, and Brahma is the creator of the universe. He is considered the father of Prajapathi. Sometimes lord Brahma himself is called Prajapathi.

Vedic Story of Rohini Nakshatra:
Prajapathi had 33 daughters. He gave them to Soma. Soma only got associated with Rohini, so other daughters returned in anger. The Soma followed them and asked for them to come back. Prajapathi said that he would not return them unless soma swears that he will equally associate with all of them. Soma took the oath and Prajapathi returned the daughters. Even then Soma only associated with Rohini. Due to this act and the unfulfillment of promise, illness seized Soma. Soma approached all the daughters of Prajapathi respectfully.

The daughters said, “Let’s choose the boon. But will you equally associate with us?”. For soma, they (daughters of Daksha) offered this oblation to Aadhithya (because the 33 daughters wanted Soma to survive). Aadhithya freed Soma from his evil. Now Soma shall offer his oblation to the Aadhithya. He shall also recourse to the Aadhithya with their share. Therefore, he shall offer himself to the Aadhithya on the New Moon day. It appears It appears that some are waxing butAadhithya makes him wax. The Puronuvakya is ‘He is born ever new’. The Yadnya is the cycle that the Aadhithya makes Soma wax. Soma makes himself wax.

Characteristics of Rohini Nakshatra in Vedic Astrology

  • The animal symbol of Rohini nakshatra is the male snake. If you learn about the behavior of a male snake you will learn deep insights of this nakshatra.
  • The most dominating feature of a snake is his ability to get attention of anyone and everyone, from monkey on trees to bystanders on park.
  • There is fear, anxiety and fascination associated with the serpent. If a monkey was seen in a park it would get some attention and people would think it is cute, but a snake just gets attention of everyone.
  • Rohini individuals know how to draw attention and have natural instinct to attract people.
  • These individual fascinates people by their ability and attract attention with their eyes.
  • A snake has the most intense looking eyes, especially when they shed their skin. Snake has the most intense and unusual eyes.
  • Rohini natives usually have beautiful eyes, they may not be stunning to look but some how you will fall for their eyes once gazed upon.
  • The other distinct feature of a snake is their venom and ability to inflict poison.
  • Its incorrect to think snakes are always there to just inflict poison no matter what.
  • Snakes generally ignore and are scared of people and only inflict poison when threatened or hungry but snake will not consume human for a meal unless forced upon.
  • Rohini person will be extremely friendly, fun and have a unique sexual attraction but do not mistake that for being weak and if pushed upon or challenged they will inflict poison and seek revenge too.
  • Snakes are also known to be aggressive mates. There are snake orgies, snake killing and fight over other snakes for mating.
  • When a snake is seeking a mate during dry season it’s like a hungry serpent they must mate. Rohini person when in sexual mood will easily attract a mate and if afflicted by malefics can even lead to too many affairs.
  • They will also always have to fight with another person to get the attention of the person they are trying to go after.
  • One time in their life they will have to deal with some love triangle.
  • Rohini people are to be the most sensual during love making because a snake can mate for up to 3 hours at a time; such people are able to completely enjoy sex and give sexual pleasure to their partner to a point, where their poison of intense love can ruin a person for life.
  • Any person with whom they have a one-night stand or even a short relationship will always have the most intense sexual memory of the Rohini native.
  • Just like a snakebite, which can never be forgotten by a survivor, a Rohini’s bite will also not be forgotten; whether it was a one-night stand or a few weeks of dating and will be something unforgettable with a lifelong impression. Snakes are gifted swimmers. Rohini people can naturally learn to swim even without coaching.
  • They just have this natural ability to move the body in water. This also leads to one becoming a great dancer.
  • A male snake will always have to shed his skin 4-5 times a year and if we relate this attribute to a Rohini person they will have dry skin, which always comes off, but the shedding of the skin also has another meaning.
  • These people can change their personality, behavior and attitude at a given moment and become whatever they want when they desire something.
  • The element of Rohini is to grow crops on the Earth. Our planet was a barren land few billion years ago but now there are high risers, fast cars, clothes, delicious food, entertainment and wealth.
  • Rohini is all about growth in the material world. They always try to attain the best and most original resource of this planet.
  • They will never wear cheap or fake jewelry. They want real diamonds, gems, gold, and all resources of this Earth. Anything Rohini touches starts growing.
  • Rohini is one of the best nakshtra to launch business alongside Pushya and Swati.
  • These folks are pleasure seekers. They know how to extract and nourish themselves with best-hidden resources.
  • They love fine wine, Michelin star restaurants and best quality cigars.
  • Rahu in Rohini can go to the extreme of finding pleasure in the world and actually attain it.
  • The element of Rohini is Earth. It is in the middle of the Earth sign, Taurus.
  • Earthly things are everything you and I experience, whether it is sadness, happiness, obsession, fame, money, spouse, sex, children, security or learning.
  • The nakshatra devata is Brahma, the supreme creator aka Prajapati.

  • He is the God who created man, space, planets, and everything that we know.
  • In creating this beautiful world he not only had to create other souls but need to mate to pro-create.
  • When he created so called daughter Dawa, a beautiful woman he approached her to mate which was simply a part of the divine plan.
  • He ran after and chased her as she refused to do such act with a father like man.
  • The other Gods that had been created by him were angry at this act of incest.
  • The problem is we need to understand this concept in a deeper form. The only reason Brahma chased his daughter is due to him looking and protecting her, which is why the 5th head of Brahma appeared hence, the 5th head represents illusion.
  • The Rohini person always tends to get chased by other lustful men or women.
  • They always attract the opposite wherever they go. This doesn’t mean that Rohini person will have incest with their father.
  • As a child Rohini natives will be chased by their parents in a fun game but on the other hand a Rohini person themselves can chase and stalk their prey.
  • When afflicted by malefics beauty, resources, and attention can fuel Rohini’s ego, jealousy and possessiveness.
  • Rohini person can attract and kill the prey.
  • Why this theme plays out? This is due to the fact Rohini was the favorite wife of Moon out of all the 27 wives.
  • As a result Jyeshtha, her eldest sister got jealous and complained about this fact to their father, Daksha, who cursed Moon to wax and wane, causing to gain and lose his brightness over a month period.
  • There is a saying, “Rohini is the queen, Purva Phalguni is the courtesan”(as told by a close colleague).
  • Moon is known as the queen in the planetary kingdom.
  • A queen has no love of life for the king, she was simply someone who bought two kingdoms together and had a huge political influence.
  • On the other hand, it was the courtesan who gave true love to the king, taught his children, showed him romance and showered the sensual love.
  • She wasn’t a prostitute as what we think today and infact they were highly qualified, educated and spiritual.
  • A Rohini person seduces you but after their seduction they want to leave as they have conquered you, Phalguni on the other hand wants to truly please you and show you what is love.
  • Both are sexual and romantic, but one has the element of seducing like a prey vs. seducing like a lover.
  • If you saw someone with a Rohini lagna or Moon and said they have these qualities you can be flat wrong. However, if the Moon or lagna is getting impacted by other planets with Venus and Mars posited in position of seduction then it will be working out like a Picasso painting.
  • Rohini is Yakshini, Phalguni is Romance. A yakshini, other dimensional being, who is set to be one of the workers of Kubera can be invoked by certain tantric practices and will show themselves to you on the 8th day, etc at a certain place.
  • They tend to seduce the native and fulfill their wishes. Their whole agenda is for seduction and giving wealth by making some kind of a trade.
  • Rohini people are excellent lovers in bed. They can go longer than anyone just like Magha or Purva Phalguni.
  • They also love the color red and pink as these colors symbolizes romance.
  • Their power of seduction makes them very elegant and sophisticated when it comes to public life.
  • But there is a Nadi technique which says when two planets are hemming a nakshatra between them, that nakshatra is most prominent for the person.
  • If Saturn is in Ashwini and Jupiter is in Krittika that means the person will behave like Bharani in their life, especially during Saturn-Jupiter or Jupiter-Saturn dasha, but the person will always experience the traits of Bharani.
  • The symbol of this nakshatra is the chariot. This clearly shows that Rohini person will always be into cars, working on cars, traveling and wanting to move in luxury.
  • Rohini person attains a luxury car their growth in life starts.
  • This also shows their ability to steer through difficult situation. They are quick thinkers when it comes to solutions.
  • Due to quick-wit and thinking Rohini natives are excellent writers and speakers because Moon rules this nakshatra.
  • Moon is a very addictive planet and desires to get what he see, which is why it got him in trouble in first place.
  • They develop an addictive personality towards gambling, sports betting, and probability for winning in auction is high for them.
  • They beat everyone to get something that no one else could have. Moon want to be with anyone in the sky at his will, gave him a reputation of a cheater and this cheating can turn towards plagiarism.
  • Rohini individuals may take someone else’s idea, make it their own, and find success from it or can innocently hear some idea from others and quickly react to it.
  • One important observation is Rohini native’s children may be unmarried for a long time, perhaps till their late 30’s.
  • Why is this? Moon never produced an offspring except by cheating on Tara, wife of Jupiter. I have heard some scholars say it is this curse that leads to such situation.
