Stories and Curse associated with Rohini nakshtra :
- Rohini & Chandra – Curse of Daksha
According to the Puranas, Rohini is mentioned as the granddaughter of Lord Brahma and the daughter of Daksha Prajapati. She was married to Chandra, the moon, along with twenty-six of her sisters. The twenty-seven sisters are the twenty-seven constellations in Indian Astrology. Her father had secured the promise that all of them would be treated equally from Chandra. But Rohini being the most beautiful of them all, Moon was drawn to her. This attraction towards her led Chandra to forget all his other wives. And broke his promise to his father-in-law.
Eventually Chandra’s wives went to father Lord Prajapati Daksh regarding this sort of Injustice to them. Daksh cursed Chandrama that he will have to suffer from ‘Kshay’- deterioration of body within short period of time. In order to get rid of the curse Chandrama performed one of the Hardest penance of ‘Mahamritunjaya mantra’ composed by rishi Markandeya in the Prabhas region. Lord Mahadev, on the very occasion of Mahashivratri appeared in front of him informed him that he could not get rid of the curse because what he had done was also injust. Chandrama realized his mistake and apologized for it. Eventhough Mahadev explained him that he had to face the curse but only half of it.
In order to make Chandrama free from curse Mahadev had to place him on his head as Daksh’s curse doesn’t get in vain. Mahadev booned Chandrama that 15 days of the month he would face the curse and the remaining 15 days he would be growing to larger extend. The totally diminished Chandrama is nothing but “AMAVSYA” and the full sized Chandrama is “POORNIMA”. After getting such boon from Lord Shiva, Chandrama built a huge Temple and named that Jyotirling as ‘Somnath mahadev’ here Som means chandra.
This is how jealousy, Rumours, seduction is connected with this nakshtra.
- Lord Krishna & Rasalela
In Bhagavad Geeta, Krishna said that He was Shiva among Rudras; He was Arjuna among Pandava and He was Abhijit among Nakshatra Classical Vedic texts mention Abhijit as one of the most auspicious time for doing any auspicious activity excepting travelling to southern direction. Its deity is Lord Brahma. Abhijit means “Victorious” or “the one who cannot be defeated”.
The story from Mahabaratha. Pandu was the king of Hastinapur. Kunthi & Madhri were his wives. Madhri was blessed with Nakula & Sahadev by the help of Ashwini Kumaras. Among them Nakula was a great horse rider another Sahadeva was a great astrologer.
The opponents of padavas king duryodhan approached sahadeva for taking good muhurtha to win the kurukshetra war. Even he is enemy being a good astrologer given the great Abhijith muhurtha to win the war.
Lord Krishna understand this situation. Created a magic clouds to manipulate the muhurtha time to confuse the king duryodhan. Simply duryodhan trapped into it.
This is how manipulation works in Rohini nakshtra.
- The Uncomfortable Love Of Brahma And Saraswati
There are many versions of story related to Brahma and Saraswati. And I am sure you people don’t need any introduction about the Hindu goddess of wisdom and knowledge, goddess Saraswati.
At the beginning of a kalpa, a divine lotus sprung from Vishnu’s navel, and from it emerged the grandfather of all creation, Brahma. From his mind and his various forms, he produced gods, seers, demons, men, creatures, days and nights, and many such creations. Then at one point, he split his body in two – one of which became the goddess Shatarupa, she of a hundred forms. She was verily named Saraswati, Savitri, Gayatri, and Brahmani. This is how the Brahma Saraswati story started and the Brahma – Saraswati relationship is that of father and daughter. Saraswathi was Brahma’s manasa putri. Brahma creates Saraswathi to give a wisdom to everyone.
Brahma gets fascinated by her beauty and desires her. Saraswati disliked the attention Brahma focused on her and tried to escape from him, but whichever way she moved, Brahma grew a head in that direction to see her better. Even when she moved upwards, Brahma grew another head on top.
Shiva – Rudra the ascetic god was so disgusted by Brahma’s behaviour, that he lopped off the later’s fifth head. This served as a punishment to Brahma for showing attachment to his creation. This is why we see Brahma with his four heads only.
That fifth face of Brahma turns to Brahmakapala that stuck in Shiva’s palm. Brahma curses Shiva to beg around the world to feed the kapala until it releases from Shiva’s palm. Shiva roam around the 3 lokas (Devlok, Bhoolok & Patalalok) with the brahma kapala and still it be stuck in Shiva’s palm.
At last, in Varanasi, Parvathi incarnate as Goddess Annapoorneshwari and feeds Shiva, that moment brahma kapala disappear from his hand.
So back to the story Brahma’s love for Saraswati is deemed wrong as a father’s sexual love for his daughter and as a creator’s egoistic love for his creation.
In one version Brahma finally requested Saraswati to help him to create the Universe. They were eventually ‘married’ and
Saraswati as his wife helped Brahma to execute his plan accordingly and created the demigod Manu, the first man. More specifically, Saraswati’s son is the rishi (sage) Sarasvata. He, nourished by the bountiful waters of his mother, was able to withstand the Great Drought of Hindu mythology and so survive as the definitive repository of the Vedas sacred texts.
In another version Saraswati was first the wife of Vishnu. The latter, though, already had his hands full with two other wives and so he gave Saraswati to Brahma. Leaving the controversy apart..
The Brahma and Saraswati relationship did not receive the sanctity that is expected of all divine relationships and Brahma’s incestuous pursuit did not fetch him a good place in mythology. The idea of incest is one of the most universal taboos.
- Lord Brahma’s inflated Ego
Once Brahma and Vishnu were overcome with the sense of self-importance and ego. They began to argue as to who was the greater of the two. As the argument became heated, Lord Shiva had to intervene. Shiva took the form of a gigantic linga (the phallic symbol of Shiva). The lingam told both Brahma and Vishnu that if any of them could find the end of the lingam, He will be declared as the greater of the two. Both Brahma and Vishnu agreed to the deal.
Lord Brahma and Vishnu kept searching for years. Vishnu realized the fact that Shiva was the greatest among the Trinity. But Brahma decided to trick Shiva. He requested the Ketaki flower to testify before Shiva that Brahma had reached the uppermost part of the lingam and had seen the end. The Ketaki flower agreed. When brought before Shiva, the flower falsely testified that Brahma had seen the end. Lord Shiva became furious at this lie. And punished both Brahma and Ketaki.
- Petty case of Jealousy – Saraswati & Gayatri
One day Saraswati was late to arrive at the time when Brahma was to perform a Yagna. He required the presence of his partner to finish the services. Brahma became very angry because his consort’s presence was required to complete the ceremonies. Brahma asked the priest to fetch him any woman and wed him to her at the spot.The only unmarried woman available was a shepherdess of the untouchable Gujar caste named Gayatri, whom the gods hastily purified by passing her through the mouth of a cow. In reality she was no other person than this Vedic hymn of Gayatri incarnated in the shape of that beautiful girl. she is also known as the form of Adishakti. Brahma immediately married that girl and kept her as his other wife together with Saraswati.
When Saraswati finally arrived, she was furious that Brahma had married someone else and cursed him, saying that henceforth he would be worshipped only at Pushkar. She also proclaimed that the Gujar caste would gain liberation after death only if their ashes were scattered on Pushkar lake – a belief that has persisted to this day.
- Curse by Saraswati
When Saraswati came to know that Indra was the one who brought Gayatri, Vishnu and Rudra gave permission of the marriage. He cursed them all, she said By the powers which I have obtained by the performance of tapas, may Brahma never be worshipped in temple or sacred place, except one day in each year.
And Indra, since you bring that milkmaid to Brahma, you shall be bound in chains by your enemies and confined in a strange country; and your city and station shall be occupied by your enemies.
Addressing Vishnu, she said, Since you gave her in marriage to Brahma, you be born amongst men, and shall endure the agony of having your wife ravished from you by your enemy.
To Rudra she said By the curse of the holy sages, you shall be deprived of your manhood.
Having pronounced these curses, Saraswati left the assembly, and was accompanied for a short distance by Lakshmi and the other goddesses, when they all declared their intention of returning. On hearing this, Saraswati was incensed, and thus addressed them Since you now forsake me,
O Lakshmi !! May you never remain stationary in one place; and may you always abide with the vile, the inconstant, the contemptible, the sinful, the cruel, the foolish, and the barbarian.
And, Indrani, when Indra incurs the guilt of Brahmanicide by slaying Tvastri’s son, then shall Nahusha acquire his kingdom, and, be desirous of obtaining you.
Saraswati then pronounced this curse on the wives of the gods collectively, May you all remain barren, and may you never enjoy the pleasure of having children.
- Modification of the curses by Gayatri
After Saraswati’s angry departure from the assembly, Gayatri modified the curses that had been pronounced. She promised all kinds of blessing, including final absorption into him, to all the worshippers of Brahma. Though Indra be bound, his son should release him. Though Vishnu lost his wife, he should regain her. Though Rudra be deprived of his manhood, the Linga as his representative should be universally worshipped.
GENERIC INTERPRETATION OF PLANETS IN ROHINI :
SUN : Sun is in Rohini Nakshatra, these natives can be seen as highly ambitious people. Sun represents authority, it also shows that their authority can come through business oriented career. They may not enjoy the job setup environment. As Taurus remains the sign of wealth and finance, it shows that their business can be related with financial matters. But as Sun is in enemy sign, it shows that these people can have a sense of frustration. As Rohini is all about moving forward, they can be all about growing and achieving more and more in their career. As Sun is ego, their ego satisfies or feels secured with getting more & more wealth. It is also creativity oriented nakshatra, so these people can be in creativity related career too. Rohini also has the basic trait of jealousy and Sun is ego. So, because of these two traits coming together, their relations can suffer if Sun is impacting relationship oriented houses or planets. They can also be seen in careers like travelling or communication.
MOON : Rohini was the most beloved wife of Moon and Moon liked to spend his most of time wth Rohini. So, it is common sense that when Moon will feel overjoyed when its in Rohini nakshatra.
