Revatī

Revati or Revathi (Devanagari: रेवती) is the twenty-seventh nakshatra in Hindu astronomy, corresponding to ζ Piscium.[1] It is said to be ruled by Budha, the son of Chandra, also known as the planet Mercury. According to the beliefs of traditional electional astrology, Revati is a Sweet or Delicate nakshatra, meaning that while Revati has the most influence, it is best to begin working on things of physical beauty like music and jewellery .[2]

Symbolism

Revati is symbolized by fish (often a pair of fish). It is also associated with the sea[3] Due to its association with fertility, Revati is said to fall under the domain of the deity Pushan. [4]

Characteristics

Jyotiṣa states that the constellation through which the moon is passing during the time of a person’s birth has an effect on the personality traits later in life.[5] The moon in Revati indicates a person who is sweet, caring, responsible and who cares for other people. People born under Revati are sociable and love humanity and society, and are protective and nourishing of others. They are devoted to loved ones, spiritual, artistic and creative. Disappointments in their early life creates compassion and forgiveness for others, and it is said that they will reap karmic rewards in the next life for their caring actions.

Naming Practices

Under the ancient traditional Hindu principle of naming individuals according to their birthstar (see Jyotisha), the following Sanskrit syllables correspond with this Nakshatra, and would belong at the beginning of a first name:

  • De (दे)
  • Do (दो)
  • Cha (च)
  • Chi (ची)[6]
