7. punarvasu Punarvasu means rejuvenation. The word Punarvasu is a combination of two words Punah and Vasu. Puna means again and vasu means auspiciousness and enlightenment. In the context of nakshatra this means restoration of dharma and auspiciousness, rejuvenation, restarting the creative process and anything which follows after the destruction process. In the garland of nakshatra, this falls after the terrible Ardra and hence relates to the phase that comes after any destruction. To understand the meaning of this stage in the cycle of creation and destruction, imagine of a wild fire which burnt down an entire forest and that follows with rain and sprouting of new saplings in the blank ground. This is indicative of the feminine motherly forces which causes the creation to occur and prosper and that is why this nakshatra is ruled by Aditi, the mother of the eight vasus. To understand the real purport of this nakshatra we need to have the understanding of the asta vasus or the eight factors of creation. It is not possible to describe the Vasus in a short article like this, hence I will try to provide the gist of what are they. They are Agni (fiery element), Apas (watery element), Dhruba (the pole-star), Soma (the nectar for rejuvination or creating), Dharma (the laws governing creation), Anila (air), Patyusha (dawn) and Prabhasa (day/ brilliance/ radiance). Among the vasus, the primordial elements fire and water ignites the process of creation. The creative forces can be represented in the form of igniting the fire of live in the water which nourishes it and air which supports its growth. From a different perspective fire is the soul, water is the body and air is the intelligence, the three components necessary for the creation to begin and sustain. Dharma on the other hand represents the law governing the creation and gives a purpose for the creation to happen. Pratyusha signify the mingling of fire with water without which the creation cannot happen due to the inimical nature of fire and water. Here fire signifies day which comes out of night signified by water. In other terms this can also be seen as new beginning (day) after destruction (night). Prabhasa signify the process of increase in brilliance of the creation, which means that creation is not a static thing but a process in which the new life materializes and grows bigger and stronger. The first and foremost signification of this nakshatra is harmony without which creation would never happen and thus the natives born under this star have a harmonious outlook towards life. They love nature and has a strong drive to live harmoniously it and everyone else. They represent illumination in the world of darkness and are
