Anuradha ("Another Radha") (213°20′ to 226°40′ Scorpio)

The Anuradha nakshatra consists of the stars Beta, Delta, and Pi Scorpionis. These three stars are visible in the night sky as they appear in a straight line above the bright red star, Antares. The ruling deity, Mitra, bestows the ability to develop and sustain friendships. Anuradha is a star related to success and can produce fame and recognition, especially through collaboration. This nakshatra uses both intuition and logic to produce a remarkable understanding of numbers. Travel and success in foreign lands are also supported by this star. People born under Anuradha nakshatra promote cooperation among humanity and are capable of leading and organizing large groups. They must, however, monitor their level of frustration and melancholy. Similar to the lotus flower, Anuradha has the persistence and ability to blossom in the midst of difficulty.

Sacred Energy Vortex

Thirunindriyur Sri Lakshmi pureeswarar Temple

The temple associated with the energy of Anuradha nakshatra is located near the Thanjavur District of Mayilaadudhurai in Tamil Nadu, India. The temple is known locally as Thirunindriyur. Goddess Lakshmi worshipped the Siva lingam at this sacred vortex. She prayed to Lord Shiva and asked for his blessing to remain in the chest of Sriman Narayana Moorthy, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Due to the devotion of the Goddess, Lord Shiva has the name Sri Lakshmi pureeswarar at this shrine.

People born under Anuradha nakshatra should visit the shrine for Sri Lakshmi pureeswarar at this temple on Anuradha day, a birthday, or a wedding. It is recommended to perform archana with lotus flowers, an abhishekam and anoint Sri Lakshmi pureeswara with sandalwood paste and pomegranate seeds. An offering of sweet rice can be given to the poor near the temple. In addition, one can bath in the holy temple pool and perform a Lakshmi PanjamiVrath pooja for five days. This is a powerful remedy for financial difficulties.

People born under other stars may also benefit by worshiping Sri Lakshmi pureeswarar at this sacred site. On Anuradha day, Lord Shiva is adorned with colorful garments that are favorable to Goddess Lakshmi. People can offer a ghee lamp with three wicks and walk around the Sri Lakshmi pureeswarar shrine. People may also offer gold or silver wedding badge, in accordance with their financial status, or a turmeric covered cord to the poor married woman.
