Looking up into the night sky, Shravana consists of the stars Altair, Alshain and Tarazed. These three stars form the head of Aquila, the Eagle. The word Shravana translates as "hearing" and the symbol of this star is the ear. This is a nakshatra of listening and learning. Just as ancient cultures passed on knowledge through oral traditions, so also people born under Shravana have a great ability to obtain knowledge through listening. The media and communication field are also associated with this nakshatra. Those born under Shravana constantly seek wisdom and often travel to foreign countries to further their education. These people have great focus for obtaining goals and complete all the projects they begin.
