A mystical talisman – a source of divine, spiritual and occult protection – symbolizes this lunar mansion. The word itself, jyeshtha, means “the elder” – signifying a wizened person whose arcane, shamanic, and supernatural guidance protects the masses. Indra, the king of heaven, is the god of this mansion – illustrating that invincibility, authority, and bravery can be acquired from the supernatural protection of Jyeshtha. Mercury is the planet owning this mansion, which exists within Scorpio – the home of Mars.
Thus, although Jyeshtha holds profound access to sub- and supra- conscious intuitions, she is challenged by weakness towards the normal rational processes of intellect and communication, which become clouded and confused by passions and lack of direct simplicity.
