Rohini is considered as one of the most benevolent, charismatic, charming and pleasant nakshatras among all the nakshatras. Rohini is taken as the fourth nakshatra in Vedic Jyotish among the 27 nakshatras which are considered important for making astrological calculation from horoscopes based on Vedic Jyotish. Rohini is a nakshatra of beauty, warmth, passion and desires. Rohini falls under the sign of Taurus ruled by Venus and the main symbol associated by Vedic Jyotish with Rohini is a cart driven by two oxen. The symbol associated with the Taurus sign is bull or ox which shows similarity to the symbol of Rohini nakshatra. According to Vedic Jyotish, Lord Brahma is the ruling deity of Rohini nakshatra and as most of us know that Lord Brahma is the creator among the Tridevas or Trinity, so Rohini is also associated with creation or creativity on one level or the other.
A strong and particular influence of Rohini can make the native very beautiful and charming and his charms may be very difficult for the others to resist. There is a story in Vedic mythology to support this fact. When Lord Brahma created Rohini, she was so beautiful and charming that Lord Brahma himself could not resist her charms and started following her to fulfill his desires. Lord Shiva then came to the rescue of Rohini and stopped Lord Brahma from pursuing Rohini with materialistic intentions. Lord Brahma was then assigned as the ruler of this nakshatra and it can be easily concluded from this story that when Rohini is exhibiting its most charming energies, it can make the native so beautiful and charming that even the gods find difficult to resist. The influence of Lord Brahma on Rohini blesses this nakshatra with the ability to create very good things and Rohini is considered as a symbol of prosperity and fruitfulness.
Moon is the planetary ruler of this nakshatra and it is a very well known fact that out of all 27 nakshatras, Rohini is the favorite one for the Moon. According to Vedic mythology, all the 27 nakshatras were born as girls to one father named Prajapati Daksh who himself was the Manas son of Lord Brahma. All of these 27 nakshatra girls were married to god Moon on the directions of Lord Brahma and god Moon was supposed to spend same amount of time with each nakshatra girl, one after the other. But god Moon was so mesmerized by the charms and love making skills of Rohini that he refused to leave the place of Rohini at one point of time. And as god Moon stopped visiting the other 26 nakshatras, the whole system was disturbed and then Lord Shiva had to intervene to set things in order. From the above story, it is very obvious that Rohini is the favorite nakshatra of Moon and this is the reason that Moon finds its maximum exaltation in this nakshatra. A strong and positive moon placed in Rohini can bless the native with charm, charisma, magnetism, prosperity and many other things. According to Vedic mythology, Lord Krishna was born with Moon in Rohini and his charm and charisma is a very well known fact.
