Hastha – The Hand

Hastha (10.00-23.20 Virgo) represents the creativity of the Sun. The word Hastha translates into the ‘hand’ or it may be alternatively transcribed as ‘laughter’. The significance of the latter is that Hastha is often associated with punning.

The symbol of the closed fist gives Hastha the ability to achieve goals and good manners. In fact, Hastha is often associated with the sun and the solar principle, as it is related to the Sun and its rays.

Behavioral Characteristics

The common English words like hand, handy, hassle, haggle, haste, hard, harness etc are said to be derived from Hastha. The relation to the well known greeting Hastha Maniana symbolizes the jovial aspect of the Hastha personality and its relation with endings of all types. Once the family in Uttaraphalguni has been established, Hastha seeks to get the household going. It makes advocacy of civilized living, by making excellent householders, with apparent seriousness and joviality beneath.

The Hastha nakshatra may betray a staright faced expression, and their supple build can handle various kinds of manual jobs. Their sharp minds make for instant solutions along lines of practicality, which makes them disregard extreme romantic attitudes. Their mischievous smiles are complemented by the lack of ability to sit still and hence the natives are somewhat fidgety. Often obsessed with staying busy, this asterism likes to complicate apparently simple tasks, but with a very high amount of attention to detail.

Hastha born individuals expect others to be as meticulous as they are and are highly critical when their ends are not met, or expectations not realized. When related with the progeny in the 5th house, Hastha born individuals are likely to develop tension with their children. In accordance with the universal scheme of things, Hastha born persons are associated with the Sanskrit phrase ‘Hastha sthapaniya agama shakti’. This means, the nakshatra has the power to put the object of their desire within their hands or power.

The symbolism of Hastha is a representation of attainment of the end or material object over the procedure of the attainment. In fact, the very symbol refers to the fact that Hastha holds the promise of immediate acquisition of the desired object by dint of sheer skill.

The sacred energy vortex that resonates with the star Hasta is located in Komal near Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, India. People born under Hasta should visit this temple at least once during their lifetime.

Those who visit the temple at Komal and worship Sri Kirupa Koobareswarar (an aspect of Lord Shiva) and Goddess Sri Annapoorani will receive the blessings of divine grace and compassion. People born under Hasta star should worship this form of Shiva with folded hands in prayer, meditation and yoga. It is also recommended for these people to perform the ancestor ritual known as tarpanam. While making the tarpanam offering, water passing over the lines of the person’s hands connects their energy with the energy of the ancestors.

The connection of this temple to Hasta star begins with the story of Goddess Parvati, who wanted to understand exactly what Lord Shiva experienced as the ruler of the Universe. Shiva participated in Divine sport, so Parvati decided she too would take part in Divine sport to gain the knowledge of Shiva. Parvati playfully covered Lord Shiva’s eyes with her hands, but this simple action caused the entire universe to become incapacitated. She had stopped the flow of water, the movements of planets and everything in the universe became still. Overcome with guilt, Parvati asked Lord Shiva for his forgiveness.

Shiva explained to Parvati that due to her actions, he would disappear into the light known as "Hastayama Jyoti" created by his own hands. Parvati would then incarnate as a cow wondering around the world in search of Shiva until she reunited with him in the form of "Hastayama Jyoti." Parvati was quite distressed about the situation, but followed Shiva’s orders and wandered the earth as a cow, searching for Lord Shiva’s light. Finally, on Hasta star day, Lord Shiva revealed his light to Parvati and bestowed darshan as Sri Kirupa Koobareswarar.

Those born under Hasta can offer foods that require the use of one’s hands during preparation to the poor. Making sweet or savory cakes by hand, is a good example of such an offering. This will help assist those who are poor to acquire wealth. It is also recommended that people who are suffering from depression visit the temple at Komal. To make an offering on Pradosham days, Mondays and Wednesdays is a powerful remedy for depression. Finally, those who have marital troubles can walk around this temple from left to right as a remedy for any challenges with marriage.

Hasta natives, your incense is made with the herb Neem as prescribed by the Vedas.

Burning one of these pillars is like performing a mini fire ritual for that particular star formation. For your specific Birthstar, you will be able to connect inwardly to your planet of energetic origin and gain support with the positive aspects that are you.

Burning the other Nakshatra pillars on that specific Nakshatra day will tune you in with the favorable activities with that star’s energy for the day. It is recommended to at least burn your own personal Nakshatra pillar daily to stay connected to your essence. It is advantageous to burn the days Nakshatra pillar as well.
