Pushya


Pushya

Pushya is a nakshatra in Indian astronomy. It corresponds to γ, δ and θ Cancri, in the Cancer (constellation).

Traditionally, many people buy gold on the day of this Nakshatra.

Under the traditional Hindu principle of naming individuals according to their birthstar (see Jyotisha), the following Sanskrit syllables correspond with this Nakshatra, and would belong at the beginning of a first name:

Hu (pronounced as in "hurry")

He (pronounced as in "heavenly")

Ho (pronounced as it appears")

Da (pronounced as in "Rhonda")
