(Why it’s More Challenging for the Female Natives)
On a physical level, Rohini talks, walks and smiles in seemingly hypnotizing ways that it attracts masses of people towards her without her intending to do so. Unaware of herself attracting masses, both worthy and unworthy. Lacking the discrimination power and having no skills of mind games or tricks like Ashlesha Nakshatra, is the reason why its easily targeted as a prey of the pervert.
These natives being easy to be noticed, and operating at the core energy of Anahata Chakra (Heart Centre), is what makes them susceptible to falling into wrong hands.
What we observe most of the times is that, subconsciously, the parents of the Rohini native will feel a strong need to “Protect” their baby from the harshness of outside world, especially if it is a girl child.
Because Brahma the father, lusting after his daughter is a strong theme connection here in Rohini. For these natives, oftentimes majority of the child abuse or sexual abuses take place by the close family members, having father figure roles such as, uncles, male gradians or step fathers.
Subtle Effects of Rohini
On a more subtle level, there is always this 2-8 Exis in Astrology of Taurus-Scorpio, Rohini-Jyeshta, Lakshmi-Alakshmi. .
The 2nd house is called “Lakshmi Sthan”, seat of the Goddess of wealth. Whiles the 8th house is called “Mrityu Sthan”(House of Death) the seat of Goddess Alakshmi, representing occult powers, longevity, hidden fortune and also negative traits of sickness, poverty and death.
According to the ancient stories of Churning of the Milky Ocean known as “Samudra Manthana”, Alakshmi was born from the ocean before Lakshmi, making her the older and wiser sister of Lakshmi. Experienced and protective of her naive younger sister and matriarch of the family.
It is said that Due to Lakshmi’s Chanchal (Whimsical) nature, her sister Alakshmi, being concerned for the younger sister’s safety, always accompanies her everywhere.
In the contrary, if Narayan (Protecting and nurturing male consort of Lakshmi) is present with her, then Alakshmi happily leaves.
In Ancient India, it was believed that curses by either Innocent Women or Brahmin Sage were the worst kind of curses.
People who misuse Rohini’s nurturing energies and drain her consciously or compulsively, are said to be cursed by her elder sister Jyeshta, Goddess Alakshmi.
Being 180 degrees in opposition to Rohini, Jyeshtha always has a protective eye on Rohini’s flourished abode, observing each movement and recording each Karma into Smriti (Karmic Memory).
As a result of the curse, the person loses wealth, name, fame, gets scarcity of food, loses healthy bodily tissues, gets premature aging and infertility.
It is similar to the story of Hen of the Golden Egg, and Kamdhenu, that you have to nurture and harness the wealth by protecting the innocent bird or animal on first place.
Beauty has the ability to evoke both, Destructive and Procreative desires.
Hence, it is only after utilizing the discrimination and choosing to protect and nurture Rohini instead of draining her for our selfish, compulsive needs or desires.
By succeeding with cultivating Vivek (Discrimination Power), we call forth the blessings of Alakshmi, and as we pass her test, we now evoke the positive qualities of the 8th house which are transformation, rejuvenation, longevity and hidden fortune.
Alakshmi will always use harsh ways of teaching a person the worth of Lakshmi so that the unworthy and unfit do not destroy the beauty of the world. Whenever you get negative results related to the 8th house, you are being given either a test or a reality check depending upon your Karmas.
As we pass the test and welcome Narayan (Vivek), Alakshmi blesses us and leaves. Narayan then becomes “Shri Narayan” (Lakshmi’s Narayan) which supports and protects, the softness and femininity of Rohini. As she is “Shri” the All-Pervading Beauty. Without her, even Narayan is “Daridra Narayan” (Narayan in Poverty).
