Vishakha is the 16th Nakshatra occupying 20 degrees Libra to 3 degrees 20 minutes Scorpio in the sky. Vishakha is ruled by the Jupiter. Here's what it represents:
Indra-Agni rules Vishakha. They fight to eradicate the dark forces of the Universe. Agni is the leader of the Vasus and rules over the Earth. He’s the God of the Brahmins, who are adept at ancient vidya (sacred knowledge) and responsible for preserving that knowledge across ages. Indra is an Aditya( Sun God) and rules over the heavens. He’s the God of the Kshatriyas, who are fearless warriors protecting their motherland and also known for their mental vigor. Together they rule Vishakha.
Its main symbol is a 2-forked branch of a tree. The merging of two forks is symbolic of coming together of sacred knowledge and wisdom (Agni) and physical and mental prowess (Indra) making it one of the most formidable Nakshatras. Even though Lord Indra dominates Vishakha more than Agni and as they seek power and pre-eminence but Agni’s presence ensures all battles are fought within reason and set of morals or ethics, and are fought to defeat injustice and darkness. Such task also requires accountability, endurance, and persistence, which comes from Saturn as it is exalted here. Similarly, a planet changing its nature every day, Moon does not do well and so is debilitated in Vishakha. A triumphant gateway is another symbol associated with Vishakha, which symbolizes victory, success, and celebrations.
The native with a strong influence of Vishakha would be independent, brave, would overcome challenges and defeat enemies without anyone’s help, would be working a leadership position of some kind, and would have an ability to achieve extra-ordinary things in life. However, when Agni burns incessantly and Lord Indra abandons right conduct, the native can be overambitious, power-hungry, obsessive, impulsive, envious of others, may have a win at all costs attitude, may disregard the means to the end-goal, and cause injury to others. Vishakha in Scorpio could also indicate manipulation, addictions, sexual misconduct, and turbulence in one’s life. So, an overall birth reading is necessary. Careers in the alcohol industry, sports, politics, military, or leadership roles of any kind are associated with Vishakha.
