Other words which connect to Pushya Nakshatra are “Tishya” meaning auspicious and “Sidhya” meaning flourishing or prosperous. Pushya Nakshatra is indicated by udder (mammary glands) of a cow. In Indian Vedic mythology, Cow is respected like our own mother as she nourishes us, nurtures us by her milk. Henceforth, Pushya Nakshatra is considered highly auspicious and this is one of the preferred Nakshatra for all types of auspicious activities. Natives born in Pushya Nakshatra are caring generous, soft spoken, helpful, ethical and kind to others. Even male natives are known to provide motherly care to their children. These natives are reliable and prove good friends in the hour of need. As Pushya Nakshatra mixes up Cancer sign ruled by Moon and Saturn as lord of this Nakshatra, we can expect Pushya natives to be emotional and caring on one side but disciplined, philosophical and practical on the other hand. They are fond of good and new clothes. They get good education and are very consistent in performance. Their education is best utilized in their professional career and nailing down their competitors. Pushya natives are best suited for all kinds of job requiring extensive traveling or agricultural work. They have the knack of surprising people with their extra ordinary knowledge. It is possible that Pushya natives may not carry bag full of degrees with them but they have vast knowledge of different fields. They may not get much name or fame but they are appreciated for their dedication and sincerity. People born in Pushya Nakshatra attain good spiritual success. But they are not among the people who would be interested in reading all Vedic texts; rather they enter into yoga, meditation and divine mantra recitation. The childhood life of Pushya native is generally not good. The comforts of life improve only after the age of 30 years. Even if they are born in rich families, they take up serious responsibilities of family right in childhood itself. The marital life of Pushya natives is ordinary but they are very responsible spouse and parents.

Natives of afflicted Pushya Nakshatra are inconsistent in their thoughts and do not trust people. They do not give respect and care to people but carry lot of expectation from others. They wander around in search of emotional associates and finally complain that no one could understand their emotions. They themselves will not be disciplined but expect others to remain in discipline. They quickly go into depression mode if criticized and accept even false appreciation. Overall, all negative attributes of Saturn + Moon are seen in afflicted Pushya natives.
