Punarvasu - Ascendant Nakshatra Life Pattern.

Please refer to the introductory article here –
to understand the theme and purpose of this series.

So, now we will try to understand that what will happen if Punarvasu Nakshatra is someone’s Ascendant Nakshatra and how it is going to impact the life pattern of the person.

So, let’s cover this article under the following points –

Ascendant Nakshatra –It is based on the degree of the Ascendant (please find introduction of all the Nakshatras here -

If Ascendant shows the life path then Ascendant Nakshatra will show the pattern of life. It shows the activities we follow throughout our life, as a pattern.

Punarvasu – Punarvasu Nakshatra falls from 20.00 degrees of Gemini to 3.20 degrees of Cancer. It is a nakshatra of rehabilitation and recovery process. It is very closely connected with after-care medical activities. It can also be the nakshatra of counselling. For more information on Punarvasu Nakshatra, please check this -

Effect of Punarvasu Nakshatra as Ascendant Nakshatra – Punarvasu literally means Return of the Light or Return of the Hope. It comes after Ardra Nakshatra which represents Chaos. After Chaos, we can only try to restore some sanity in life. Hence, the next nakshatra is Punarvasu. It is the nakshatra of restoring the normalcy, rehabilitating activities and return of hope in life. So, people with Punarvasu as ascendant nakshatra can be very good at rehabilitating others. They can be good counsellors or healers or motivational speakers etc. Obviously, to develop such abilities, person should go through some chaos in his own life. So, they go through a troublesome phase in life and later on they heal others through their own experience. In a way, this nakshatra works as Chiron Asteroid -

Ascendant Nakshatra Lord’s Position – Now, as ascendant shows our life path and ascendant lord’s position in chart shows the direction of life path; likewise, ascendant nakshatra shows our life pattern and position of ascendant nakshatra lord in the chart shows the area of life in which that life pattern will be exhibited.

Like, we have discussed all the above traits and characteristics of Punarvasu Nakshatra which (any of them) can become the Life Pattern for someone if it is the person’s ascendant nakshatra. Now, in whichever House/Sign Punarvasu lord Jupiter is placed in a Gemini/Cancer Ascendant's chart, person may get Punarvasu’s and Jupiter’s results as life pattern. Additionally, person’s life pattern involving aforementioned activities can be exhibited from the house/sign wherever Jupiter is placed in chart, as per its dignity.

Here, going through Rahu’s position in each house/sign can be repetitive or monotonous. So, for understanding the end result, we can rely on the Concept of Who, How, What & Where -

“Where” is the House where event is happening.

“What” is the Sign which is indicating towards event.

“Who” is the Planet who is bringing the event; and

“How” is the quality of event which depends on nature and dignity of planet.

For example, in this matter, Jupiter in 7th house/Sagittarius for a Gemini ascendant chart would show that native can go through initial difficulties in his relationship matters but they can bring back normalcy in their relationship life through their wisdom and knowledge. Then person can utilize the same experience in rehabilitating others going through similar relationship difficulties. As Jupiter is in its own sign, person can have better potential to utilize the wisdom for self and others’ rehabilitation.

Whereas, Jupiter in 8th house/Capricorn for Gemini ascendant chart, the person can go through similar relationship troubles and can serve people similarly, like in above example. But as Jupiter is in debilitation here, the ability or potential to utilize the wisdom for self and others’ rehabilitation can be delayed or it may require additional hard work.

Final example, Jupiter in 4th house/Libra (for Cancer ascendant) would show that person’s life pattern can be about dealing with difficulties and frustrations in home and mother related matters. With time, they can utilize their wisdom to make things better at home and later guide others in similar situation. But now, as Jupiter is in enemy sign, person can be frustrated with final results in both directions.

Like this, we can understand about how and where the ascendant nakshatra lord is exhibiting the results of life pattern. In further articles of Ascendant Nakshatra and Life Pattern, I will cover other house/sign positions which would help us in learning interpretation of Ascendant Nakshatra and Life Pattern in a more holistic way.

Dignity – As always, Dignity of Planet has the highest say. So, we can expect better or more satisfactory results if Jupiter is in friendly signs (Aries, Leo and Scorpio), own signs (Sagittarius and Pisces) and exaltation sign (Cancer). But results can be frustrating one if Jupiter is in enemy signs (Taurus, Gemini, Virgo and Libra) or in Saturnine signs (Capricorn and Aquarius).

Conclusion – As I understand, this is how we can understand as to how ascendant nakshatra can setup the life pattern for people with Punarvasu Nakshatra as the Ascendant Nakshatra.

Hope this helps. Thanks,
