Pushya - 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 Pushya Nakshatra is someone’s Ascendant Nakshatra and how it is going to impact the life pattern of person.

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

Ascendant Nakshatra – There is something called the Ascendant Nakshatra. It is based on the degree of 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 life as pattern.

Pushya – Pushya Nakshatra is from 3.20 degree to 16.40 degree of Cancer sign. Pushya is nakshatra of nourishing and taking care of people without any selfish interests. It is closely connected with adoption and child care due to mythological story involved. For more information on Pushya Nakshatra, please check this link -

Effect of Pushya Nakshatra as Ascendant Nakshatra – Pushya is nakshatra of nourishing and taking care of others but it is regarding nourishing others without any selfish interests. It is related with professions of teaching, counselling and healing/health care etc. It is also related with child birth, adoption and foster parenting etc. So, these are activity patterns one can have if the person is born with Pushya as ascendant nakshatra.

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 chart shows that in which area of life, the life pattern will be exhibited.

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

Here, going through Saturn’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, Saturn in 6th house/Sagittarius for a Cancer ascendant chart would show that native can follow a life pattern of legal/medical work life and they can serve people through their higher education and knowledge. As Saturn is in neutral dignity, we can expect results to be of some satisfaction of native.

Whereas Saturn in 8th house/Aquarius for Cancer ascendant chart, the person can serve people in business setup in any of the above mentioned activities. They can be serving people in their emergencies, hence the door of medical profession can still be open. As Saturn is in own sign, possibilities or potential of being committed to this life pattern can be very high.

Final example, Saturn in 5th house/Scorpio shows that person may like to nourish and take care of people through his education and knowledge but as most difficult planet is in most difficult sign, person may find it really difficult to manifest. Person can have long term issues in relationship matters.

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 I said, with malefic planets like Saturn and Ketu, dignity doesn’t matter really. So, we cannot decide the probable results with dignity here but we can say that as Saturn is involved, results can be attained only after delay, hard work and perseverance. We can also apply the rule of Jeeva Karaka and Ajeeva Karaka which can tell us where or towards whom the native may get better results and where he may have to persevere more.

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