The Vishakha Nakshatra spans the cusp of Libra and Scorpio. It is represented by the four stars which form Libra’s scales. Also known as the Star of Purpose, the Vishakha Nakshatra is governed by Indra, king of gods and Agni, the fire god. As such, these can be relatively spiritual people.
The Vishakha birth star is symbolized by a potter’s wheel or monumental archway (think of the Arc de Triomphe, in Paris). The potter’s wheel is indicative of the native’s inner turmoil and continuous transformation. The arch speaks to their determination and ability to preserve and achieve long-term goals.
Independent folks, the Vishakha native tends to have a keen sense of justice and is known to be somewhat self-righteous. Determined to succeed, they will achieve their desires during their later years. While they are recognized to be determined and persistent, these people tend to lack emotions and compassion. Often non-conformists, they are prone to make their own path and reject most trends. Engaging and outgoing, the natives of Vishakha Nakshatra are generally extroverts.
Attractive and charming, the Vishakha possess a natural beauty. Unlike most of its sister Nakshatras who are generally present in one form, the Vishakha native may take one of two physical portraits. They will either be tall with a little excess weight, or they will be short and lean.

Ambitious and determined, the Vishakha native is able to overcome any rivals or obstacles they encounter on their path to professional success.

They must also be mindful not to use their charm and intellect to manipulate situations and people in the workplace.
