Revati | The Lighthouse
Thank you for joining me on this journey around the Zodiac, listening and receiving the wisdom from the stars.
Today we arrive at the last of the nakshatras, Revati. There are several symbols for Revati and I chose to go with The Lighthouse for today’s sharing.
As the last of the nakshatras, it is said that Revati contains the shakti of all the nakshatras and it is a micro of the macrocosm. We see that over and over again wherever we look, that the whole of the ocean is contained within the drop and it is repeated here in Revati.
Revati wants to shine the light on the path, to shepherd people to safety and nourishment and prosperity. Containing the shakti of all 27 nakshatras, Revati tends to be able to relate to every type of person, in all spheres of life. All are welcomed.
Unlike Ashlesha, Jyeshtha, the other two Mercury-ruled nakshatras, Revati is a very gentle nakshatra and doesn’t fit the same type of “trilogy” theme that I shared with the other 8 planets. However, Revati is very different than the other Pisces because of Mercury being its ruler. Revati is very practical and worldly so you don’t get the vibe of the Piscean mystic quite as obvious as with the other two.
Revati people fit into the world. Oftentimes they are financial gurus and have large wealth accumulated. I’ve found that the Revati has a before/after type of life. There was the way they were and then a huge pivot happened and they went another direction. To take a big pivot requires a certain type of constitution that I might say is similar to Ashlesha and Jyeshtha, a type of endurance, to stay the new course.
Another symbol of Revati is a single fish swimming in the endless ocean of possibility and so taking the new direction, swimming in new waters, is an adventure and really it doesn’t matter to the Revati what is out there as it is all welcomed.
As the last of the nakshatras, the last of the journey, in Revati we start seeing the urge to jump back into the world. Where the other two Pisces nakshatras that came before are more about the mysticism, Revati is interested in both…being a mystic and being in the world. Revati is ready to jump back into the game for a new round, knowing what they now know. But aren’t we all?
This knowing leads Revati to want to take others with them. I love the quote made famous by Ram Dass, “we’re all just walking each other home,” and MLK Jr. “no one is free until everyone is free.” That sums up what the Revati is about and why the lighthouse and the shepherd are synonymous with Revati.
This last nakshatra (of the third and final portion of the Zodiac) is preparing us for what comes next. In the end, we are learning that Karma Yoga and seva (selfless service) are the lessons we are really learning here in this Earth School
When Moon transits Revati, like it is doing today, you might notice you are extra cuddly with the pups (Revati LOVES the animals), you might find yourself swimming in a new direction, counseling those near and dear, or in some way walking to the beat of your own drum and encouraging others to follow.

PPS…I have a half-day retreat retreat this Saturday 9a-1p. It is focused on the New Moon, the Summer Solstice and Supporting Venus in our chart/lives. Venus represents what we love, it is our heart and our fourth chakra. When Venus feels out of balance, unsupported, we feel unhappy. This can happen with too strong of a Venus in our chart, combust Venus (too close to the Sun), debilitation, etc. It is amplified when Venus is in certain transits, as it is now and the next few months. We will work with supporting Venus. Sign up here.
