Pushya Nakshatra is believed to be one of the most auspicious stars in Hindu scriptures.

Pushya means ‘to nourish’, hence those born under this constellation have energy and power.

It is also believed that Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of Wealth was born in Pushya Nakshatra. Hence, she stays in the homes on the day of Pushya Nakshatra for a longer duration.

If Pushya Nakshatra occurs on Thursday, then it is called Guru Pushya Nakshatra Yog which is sacred to worship Goddess Lakshmi.


People believe that Pushya brings good luck and prosperity.

As per the Hindu Vedic Astrology, there are 27 constellations and 12 signs. Among them, Pushya, the eighth constellation is the most auspicious.

Pushya Nakshatra is ruled by Jupiter and the Lord is Saturn. Hence Pushya Nakshatra is considered very good to perform all auspicious activities.

The wealth and prosperity that has arrived in this constellation will last forever in your home. All activities started will succeed and be accomplished.

That’s why many business people follow the tradition of buying their account books during Diwali.

Another tradition is buying gold, jewellery and gems in the Gurupushyamrut Yog which are said to multiply in future.

Some people start spiritual activities to get divine blessings during the Pushya Nakshatra. They start worshipping the Goddess and chanting mantras. They believe that this will improve their lives in all walks.

Some worship Goddess Lakshmi with Shree Yantra to get abundant riches.

Investments that are made on this will yield good returns for a long time.

Some buy Ayurvedic medicines to administer in Pushya.

Overall, it has a significant place in Hinduism and many believe it as the most auspicious in life.

However, Pushya Nakshatra is believed to be cursed for marriages, hence marriages will not be performed during this constellation.
