Here are The Vedic Signs behind the Western Astrology Sign of Libra
As so often happens, you need to look at the Vedic Moon Signs (The Nakshatras) contained in the western sign, to find the really true and sure astrology of the western Sign!
There are three Vedic lunar signs inside the western sign of Libra. They are: Uttara Phalguni (13 September- 26 September), Hasta (26 September – 10 October) and Chitra (10 October -23 October). They are the 12th, 13th and 14th lunar Signs in the 27-sign Vedic Lunar Zodiac
These 27 Lunar Signs of the Vedic zodiac are called the ‘Nakshatras’. They are the basis of the wonderful and very sure Vedic astrology of Love and Marriage.
12. Uttara Phalguni 13 September- 26 September

A person whose horoscope is dominated by Uttara Phalguni may be inclined to take command in a situation. Moreover, Uttara Phalguni relates to friendship and the desire to help others. There is a need to be of service to other people. This is because the god that belongs to Uttara Phalguni is the god of friendship (as well as of conjugal bliss and love like Bhaga). It is the constellation of a person who helps someone in need. Eroticism also plays an important role. This constellation is known for amorous scandals. Its art form is erotic art: the aesthetical approach of eroticism
UttaraPhalguni people are Kshatriyas – the warrior class, mainly concerned with the pursuit of moksha – seeking liberation.
The temperament of UttaraPhalguni is Manusha – human | down to earth and tangible. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, and the power of UttaraPhalguni allows for giving of prosperity through union or marriage. Its heavenly basis emanantes for wealth gained from one’s own family, which results in wealth gained from ones partner and their family, through which there is the accumulation of wealth.

A liar. A conjuror, a trickster.
Hasta is also the constellation of the conjurer who uses his hands to perform his tricks. The morality is not always very noble. The smart salesman of second-hand cars, whose merchandise sometimes has hidden faults, belongs to this constellation. This “cleverness” can work as a boomerang. In this case, the person in whose horoscope Hasta is vividly present, has to deal with problems and set-backs as a result of his supposed “skilfulness”. In its more spiritual manifestation, the energy may express itself through palm-reading and advice, and also astrology. The constellation of Hasta consists of five stars that symbolise the five fingers of a hand.
He may be superb in the arts (music, dance, drama, poetry etc) and excel in the communications field (also sales).
Hasta is related to Rajas – motivated to fulfill desires or to reach personal goals . Hasta people are Vaishyas – the merchant class, mainly concerned with the pursuit of moksha – seeking liberation.
The temperament of Hasta is Deva – angelic | loving and accommodating and its sex is Male. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Hasta allows for gaining what one is seeking and placing it in one’s hands. Its heavenly basis emanantes for seeking of gain , which results in the process of gaining, through which we can put what we wish for in our hand.
Savitar, the god who belongs to this constellation, is the god of creativity. The transformation of material into something beautiful is also very important. As such the spiritual path of Hasta is the path of a pictorial artist or craftsman. However, there are also different ways of expression, like that of a conjurer or palm-reader, someone with any special skill. Hastas can be liars and they need to make sure they are living and speaking honestly.
14. Chitra 10 October -23 October
The female tiger – aggression, ruthlessness.
Symbol: a pearl.
Deity: Vishvakarma, the heavenly architect.
Keywords: charming, creative, artistic.
Translation: bright, shining.
Symbol: A pearl or gem, or a shining lamp
Ruling Planet: Mars
Favorable: Elegantly restrained, dignified, discriminating; business skills; happy, well dressed and well groomed; well read; drawn to serious subjects of philosophy and social thought; motivated by opportunities outside their place of birth or in foreign countries; dexterous; inclined toward more physical expressions of art such as sculpture, printmaking, etc.; capable designer.
Unfavorable: Attracted to exciting yet irresponsible mates; quarrelsome, critical, too quick to challenge someone’s point of view; corrupt, amoral; supports mates who are not self-sufficient; may not focus enough on saving money
The pearl, the symbol of Chitra, can be regarded as the symbol of the True Self, of the divine spirit within us. The pearl hides in the oyster shell. In order to reach the pearl, the shell has to be cracked and the oyster has to be removed. The female tiger is fierce, special and loving and proud of her fierce beauty. She uncompromisingly slashes away that which is not beautiful and true and exults over specialness. Fiercely loyal: unless hurt, she comes and goes often near-invisible through the dappled foliage of the jungle: deny her specialness and she will lash out with her claws and destroy and go off without a second thought to search for new killing fields to find her specialness, her joy and her happiness. Her mate is the most special person in the world to her – unless he/she harms her.
Thus, in order to be able to reach our True Self, the defence mechanisms of the ego have to be broken and the ego must die. Only the heart (the pearl) will remain. This is a painful process of course. The ego does not want to give up its defence mechanisms and surely does not want to die. The attempts of the ego to defend itself only result in even more suffering. A person whose horoscope is dominated by Chitra has to open to this True Self and be prepared to let his ego die.
This reminds me of one of the books of Osho on the way of the Sufis (Islamic mystics). Every chapter ends with the sentence: “Until you die there is nothing I can do for you”. This means that until the ego dies it is not possible to reach the pearl of the True Self.
Vishvakarma, the heavenly architect, aspires to reach perfection. Because he is the god who is connected to Chitra, this constellation is often associated with architecture and art. People with many planets in Chitra have a good (and sometimes expensive) taste and a great sense of beauty. The pearl in the sky is the fixed bright star Spica, the star of this constellation.
The name “Chitra” means brilliant-distinguished. It is related to Tamas – motivated to remove difficulties or avoid trouble.. Chitra people are Shudras – servant class, mainly concerned with the pursuit of Kama – fulfill desires.
The temperament of Chitra is Rakshasa – demon | eccentric and individualistic and its sex is Female. Each Nakshatra has a special power or Shakti, the power of Chitra allows for accumulating merit in life and creating something beautiful. Its heavenly basis emanantes for law, which results in truth, through which one gains honor in work.
Elementally, and through Ayurveda (the medical System of India), Chitra is related to Pitta – (fire) ambition . Its nature is to be soft and tender in an active way. It is closely associated with preservation – Vishnu
The spiritual path is the way of the artist (striving for perfection of form) and of meditation (in order to open to the True Self).
