In the stars
I've been trying to pick up bits about Vedic Astrology (better known as Jyotish) for the past several years. Evidently the most significant thing is one's Nakshatra, or lunar "mansion." Since there are 27 - odd days to a lunar cycle there are 27 Nakshatras. (I think.)
My Nakshatra is Shravana (in Sanskrit, Tiruvonam in Malayalam). Shravana means "Listening" or Hearing.
For those who know me, it really is frighteningly accurate, though I'm not so sure about the stable-minded part. Here's one summary:
Those born in the Shravana star are experts in music, dance and drama, truthful and stable minded; they enjoy hearing scriptures.
Another site reads:
This constellation signifies eternal quest of knowledge. The Shravana people are restless. They constantly involve themselves in conversations, or listening sessions to collect information. A person born under this sign is either an ardent student, or a well-versed teacher. They can be excellent counselors, owing to their art of listening and giving advise based on their vast knowledge.
See, it's official. I'm really supposed to be doing this stuff.
