In Vedic Astrology, known as ‘Jyotish’ in Sanskrit, the 27 constellations (Nakshatras) determines the core of celestial influences on our planet. The term Nakshatra when dissected gets split into Naksha - Map and Tara – Star which apparently points out the “Star mapping” technique. The 27 Nakshatras, in a way, represents our ideal path in the passage of life right from the moment of birth and goes till death.
Rohini, the seed of Lunar energies, is represented in the celestial firmament as a very bright pale rose star in Taurus constellation. This star is known as Alpha-Tauri (Aldebaran, one of the brightest stars in the night sky with a visual magnitude of 0.99) in modern astronomy. This unique star is visible even in the evening sky and Vedic Legends have revered this star as this was believed to be an abode of Brahma and Prajapatis.
Rohini men are strong, determined, stubborn, and hot natured. He has the absolute “don’t care attitude” that he doesn’t even mind others’ opinions about him and his decisions. He simply smiles, and nods the head to what people say and goes ahead with whatever decision he had had before. He has an eye for minute details, going by unconventional ways and a critic with whom others find it quite difficult to get along with. He has friends for life and has a great family with whom he feels complete and contented.
