||Brahma, or Prajapati, the creator
||There are five stars of the head of the Bull (the Hyades). Aldebaran is the red eye of
the bull. This star gives enthusiasm, intelligence, eloquence, and public honors, but
there can be sickness and violence.
||Of the 27 daughters, Rohini was the Moon’s (Soma) favorite wife. He spent more time
in this nakshatra, because of her beauty and seductive qualities. The others sisters
became jealous and the father (Prajapati) cast a spell on Soma, where he becomes ill
each month but recovers. This is why the Moon waxes and wanes each month.
||The "star of ascent," the myth implies the suffering our intense desires may bring, for
the Moon could not help his desire for Rohini. This is a passionate, sexually seductive
nakshatra. These people are very attractive, alluring, and beautiful. They love luxury,
art, music and all the finer things life has to offer. They are extremely materialistic and
frown on those who don’t measure up to their taste and high culture. They can be
spoiled, for nothing ever seems to be good enough for their high standards. They can
be extremely critical of others, looking down at their seeming low class. As the myth
implies, they can be over sexed, and use sex to get what they want. They can be very
artistic and have an appreciation for beauty and the fine arts. This is a growth-oriented
nakshatra, ruling crops and fertility. This implies they can rise to the top and achieve
their desires. Also there is fertility for procreation, meaning they have children. This
nakshatra gives wealth, but they must harness their worldly materialistic desires.
