The Twenty-second Nakshatra: Shravana


Are you listening?

The 22nd of the 27 Nakshatras is Shravana, spanning from 10°00′ to 23°20′ in Capricorn/Makara in the Sidereal Zodiac. Shravana means ear, श्रवण, or audible and knowledge derived from hearing, श्रावण. The symbol for this Nakshatra is the ear, and its message is about listening, not to words and sounds, but to the silence, wisdom, and knowledge that comes to us through meditation, yoga, and solitude. It takes great discipline, which is assisted by Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, to sit in silence alone to understand the truths about ourselves, the world, the Universe, and God.

The ruling planet of Shravana is the Moon, which enlightens the darkness to help us see through illusions. The Moon also and reminds us to reflect upon ourselves and life. The ruling deity is Vishnu, the preserver of the universe, who gives support to our souls throughout the process of learning and expanding.

Shravana is under the influence of all three Guna qualities: Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas. Those born with natal Moon here may fluctuate between these states, but if the saturnian discipline and the moon-like changeability can be balanced, the Guna influences can work together in harmony as well. The main motivation, or Purusaartha, is Artha, which will reinforce any action with purpose, and if that purpose is directed towards self-reflection and quiet solitude in order to understand and listen to the Sound of Silence, one will resonate with the Divine Vibrations of All.
