Significance of Dhanishta Nakshatra
Dhanishta Nakshatra is one of the important nakshatras; it is the star of the symphony. The nakshatra is known to bless people with peace, harmony, and tranquillity in their life. This star denotes a drum, the instrument used by Lord Shiva, and bansuri, the musical tool used by mighty Lord Krishna.
Asta or eight vasus are the deputies that rule Dhanishta nakshatra. They are elemental gods or solar deities of energy, joy, and light. Leo, Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio are the four fundamental padas linked with this star. Capricorn and Aquarius are the major zodiac signs which come under Dhanishta Nakshatra. Mars is the primary planet that rules Dhanishta nakshatra. Vishnu is the Trimurti that guides the nakshatra.
