Dhanishta Nakshatra in Astrology

There are 27 Nakshatras in the astrological plane and Dhanishta is the twenty third Nakshatra out of the twenty seven nakshatras. It ranges from 23 degrees in Capricorn to 6 degrees 40’ in Aquarius. The ruling deity of this Nakshatra is the planet Mars, which itself is associated with the eight elements namely Agni, Prithvi, Vāyu, Varuna, Dyaus, Surya, Chandramas and Dhruva therefore, this Nakshatra incorporates all the eight characteristics associated with each element such as music, confidence, stability, reliability, hard work, energy, intelligence, and empathy. 

Now, let us understand the different planets whose placement, house lordship, and dignity needs to  be considered before making predictions for anyone with Saturn in Dhanishta Nakshatra. Planets to be considered are Saturn, Mars, and Rahu as all these planets have significant roles to play when talking of Dhanishta Nakshatra.


Saturn in astrology is associated with delays, old age, discipline, hard work, failure, etc. Basically Saturn is everything an individual tries to avoid in life. Saturn is the lord of “Karma”, therefore, is also a hard taskmaster. Saturn is a large, slow, dry planet that asks us to focus on those areas of life which require attention and where there is improvement needed. Saturn destroys everything and asks us to rebuild from scratch in order to learn and grow as an individual. Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and Aquarius zodiac signs. So, when Saturn moves into Aquarius it moves to the 3rd pada of Dhanishta and gradually to the 4th and the last pada of Dhanishta Nakshatra. Hence, it is important to understand Saturn as a planet and its role in an individual’s horoscope.


Mars is an action oriented planet and a go-getter. Mars has a fiery nature and is associated with passion, energy, aggression and valor. As Mars rules Dhanishta Nakshatra, its position, dignity and the houses it rules in the natal chart of an individual becomes important to correctly predict Saturn’s functioning for an individual.


Rahu is a malefic planet and generally is associated with negative things such as fear, illusion, obsession, confusion, greed and materialism. Rahu co-rules Aquarius and the 3rd and the 4th pada of Dhanishta extends up to 6 degrees 40’ of Aquarius. Hence, Rahu’s placement and dignity also becomes important in making predictions for an individual as Rahu will also impact Saturn to a certain extent. 

Saturn in Dhanishta Nakshatra: General Interpretation

  • Saturn here is in the nakshatra of Mars, its enemy, but still is considered strong as Dhanishta nakshatra extends from Capricorn to Aquarius both of which are its own signs.
  • Dhanishta is the nakshatra of finances, wealth, assets, stability, adaptability, and symphony (as it also supports music and theater related arts).
  • Individuals with this placement of Saturn may lack wealth and financial stability during the initial phase of life but gradually they find stability in life. 
  • Finances and assets usually come to them after the age of 30 years and above.
  • If Saturn is placed in Capricorn and Dhanishta Nakshatra then for such individuals attaining power, position and authority becomes more important.
  • These results may however come after a delay in life with a lot of hard work and perseverance. 
  • In Aquarius however, the individual along with possessing all these above mentioned traits may also be inclined towards serving the people in need or the poor. 
  • In relationship matters too, if Saturn is in any way linked to the 2nd, 5th, 7th or 11th houses while being placed in the Dhanishta Nakshatra one will experience delays, frustrations and restrictions with negligible romance. Their relationships are usually long lasting but dull and dry.
