ROHINI is known in modern astronomy as ALPHA-TAURI (ALDEBARAN).  And Aldebaran  is one of the brightest stars in the night sky.  In fact, this unique rose star can even be spotted in the evening sky.  The ancient vedic seers revered this star as the abode of BRAHMA and PRAJAPATIS.

ROHINI can be roughly translated into 'THE REDDISH ONE" or 'THE GROWING ONE".  The colour "Red" evokes notions of warmth, passion and liveliness.  It was seen as the colour of ABUNDANCE AND PROSPERITY.

ROHINI's main symbol is an Ox-Cart pulled by Two Oxen.

BRAHMA, the creator among the governing Trinity of the Universe, is the main presiding DEITY of this nakshatra. Rohini's extraordinary charm and magnetism is made clear by the fact that MOON, whose duty is to spend only a certain amount of time with each of the 27 Nakshatras (wives of the Moon), REFUSED TO LEAVE ROHINI'S ABODE. (Please refer to my earlier article, in my blog-archives, on MOON WAXES AND WANES BECAUSE OF HIS FATHER-IN-LAW'S CURSES).  Rohini makes people and even Gods chase after it in every way possible!...wOw!

ROHINI natives usually have large, clear and expressive eyes, refined features and a smiling countenance.  They are popular within their social circle because of their charisma.  Rohini is a true patron of the Arts.  Most persons born under the Rohini's nakshatra are usually very careful about their health and known to live up to a ripe old age. Common English words like "robust", "romantic", "romeo", "rosy", "rose" seem to have the same root as the word "Rohini".

Rohini is considered to be a BALANCED nakshatra.  Those who are involved in any productive activity will understand the importance of "balance" in achieving desired results.  Just as nature is creative and productive through the BALANCE of HEAT  & COLD, LIGHT & DARK, RAIN & SHINE, WINTER & SUMMER, etc., Rohini is methodical and balanced in its actions. 

 According to Varahamihira, those born with Moon in Rohini are "HONEST, PURE, BEAUTIFUL, STEADY MIND & PLEASANT SPEECH".

It is the 4th nakshatra and the number 4 represent the mothering principle in nature.  And Rohini is the nakshatra most related to the Earth.

THE FOREHEAD, ANKLES, SHINS & CALVES OF THE LEGS are the body parts related to this nakshatra.

It is a KAPHA (watery) nakshatra.

It is related primarily to SOUTH, SOUTH EAST & NORTH WEST.

The 1st paagam of Rohini indicates strong passions & extravagance.
