DHANISHTA / AVITTAM is represented by 4 stars in the constellation known as "Delphini" (the Dolphin).  Beta Delphini with a visual magnitude of only 3.63 is the brightest, making Dhanishta / Avittam less bright compared to other nakshatras.

DHANISHTA / AVITTAM translates into - "The Wealthiest", which directly hints at the extremely lucky quality of this nakshatra.

All vedic seers agree on the fact that "a musical drum" is the main symbol of this nakshatra.  Tabla, Mridhangam, and Damaru are known as the musical drum, but Damaru stands out because Damaru is Lord Shiva's favourite drum. Some say its symbol is "a flute" too.

DHANISHTA / AVITTAM is presided by a group of 8 gods called the "Vasus" and their names are 1) Apah, 2) Dhruva, 3) Dhara, 4) Anila, 5) Soma, 6) Anala, 7) Pratyusha & 8) Prabhasa. These 8 Vasus are supposed to be wealthy and skilled in music. It means this nakshatra's mastery over the material plane and relates to the rhythm, musical functionings of the universal mind.  This is the reason why a lot of scholars are associated with this nakshatra, which in a way is understanding the rhythm of the universe.

LORD SHIVA is the ultimate presiding deity of this nakshatra. This can be understood from the fact about Shiva's immense musical abilities. Shiva, even while wreaking havoc and destruction, does so in a graceful and rhythmical dance known as THANDAVA DANCE, exemplified by his famous NATARAJA posture. It's a known fact, that the two of the main Indian classical dance systems directly originate from Lord Shiva.
In a way, this nakshatra can be seen as a bridge between VISHNU's & SHIVA's energy.  It can be related to half Vishnu & half Shiva form which can be still be found in some temples in India. Vishnu relates to its mastery of the material world, while Shiva relates to its musical aspect.

It belongs to the Farmer's class.  Although a wealthy and well endowed nakshatra, it falls in Saturn's sign of Capricorn & Aquarius, both planets belonging to the working class / masses. Its a female nakshatra because it is a feminine force which presides over all creative arts like music and dancing.

The body parts it relates to the most are the back and the anus. The spinal cord relates to Saturn and the sign Capricorn. The KUNDALINI energy rises from the area around the anus and travels upwards through the back to the top CHAKRA on the head. Its a pitta (fiery) nakshatra due to its strong relation with MARS.

For those suffering from bad effects resulting from afflictions to this nakshatra, the best remedial measure is worship of the lion-riding goddess DURGA or HARI-HARA, a deity with a half-Vishnu, half Shiva form.

According to Varahamihira,  Moon being placed in DHANISHTA / AVITTAM makes a person "liberal, brave, rich and adept to music and other fine arts.

The 1st paagam of DHANISHTA / AVITTAM relates to the the  ambitious part. It combines the energies of Sun, Mars & Saturn and directs one towards worldly accomplishments, but not so good for marital harmony.

The 2nd paagam of DHANISHTA / AVITTAM relates to the skillful and communicative part of this nakshatra.

The 3rd paagam of DHANISHTA / AVITTAM relates to the the amicable, optimistic, happy, social, musical, & wealthy aspect of this nakshatra, with marital harmony.

The 4th paagam of DHANISHTA / AVITTAM  relates to the excessive martian energy & aggressiveness.  Warriors & sportsperson are known to be born under this paagam.

  9. I was having serious relationship problems with my boyfriend and it had resulted in him moving out to his friend’s apartment. Everything got worse because he started going to bars and strip clubs frequently with his friend, getting drunk and passing out. He always threatens me on phone whenever I call him because of all the bad advises that his friend has given him. I really love him and we had been dating for 8 years which gave us a beautiful daughter. I had also lost a lot of money on therapists until I was introduced to Dr.Ogudugu by a friend whom he helped to marry her childhood boyfriend; this gave me total confidence and strength to get him back. I did all he asked and after 48 hours my boyfriend called me and rushed back home, things just changed between us emotionally. He has a job and stopped drinking and keeping irrelevant friends. It’s a miracle I never believed was possible because I had lost all hope until I found Dr.Ogudugu. So that’s why I promised to share my testimony all over the universe. All thanks goes to Dr.Ogudugu for the excessive work that he has done for me. Below is the email address in situation you are undergoing a heart break, and I assure you that as he has done mine for me, he will definitely help you too GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM.
