~~ Cologne Digital Sanskrit Dictionary

following Radha; causing welfare, happiness second half of the nakshatra pair, Radha-Anuradha the Zoroastrian deity Mizra = "god of the oath". Mizra represents "contract" and therefore alliance, truthfulness, fairness, justice, honesty, light and Sun.

"Mitra desired, "May I be regarded as a friend in all the worlds." One who makes the appropriate offering to Mitra, to Anuradha, becomes regarded as a friend in all these worlds. Those born under Anuradha want to be friends with everyone. They are emotionally sensitive to others and place the welfare of others over their own."

~~ David Frawley, Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra

Anuradha, for females:

"A gay and fun-loving type, clever and witty. She will always be surrounded by an admiring circle of friends and her popularity will cause envy and malice among those who are not included in this circle. Her married and domestic life will be very happy. She will be devoted to her family and faithful to her husband, unless the Seventh House of the Life Chart is badly afflicted. In which case, although she loves her husband, some misunderstanding will result in a divorce."

~~ Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 98.

Anuradha, for males:

"Usually robust and healthy, yet the native of Anuradha gets very little enjoyment out of life. Probably because he consciously strives after happiness but with continual discontent and bitterness in his heart. He has a deep secretive nature and because of his attitude and outlook on life he is somewhat unscrupulous. "A sweet tongue but poison in the heart" aptly characterizes him."

~~ Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra. p 85.

Male Chandra in Anuradha: M. Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran

Barbara's viewpoint on Anuradha:

Anu-radha's purpose is to restore order, after there has been a shock or a threat. Anuradha is the nourishing, quieting rain which follow the thunder & lightening of a big atmospheric storm. Anuradha natives are welcomed as agents of peace & makers of treaties. Under the auspices of Mithra, Anuradha is known for "friendliness". But "friendliness" is often just a presenting attitude, adopted to ease the approach into a difficult discussion. Anuradha's mind is not friendly in the cheerful, light-hearted sense. Rather Anuradha is friendly in the serious, goal-oriented sense of being committed to a business relationship. Mithra's goal is to achieve an alliance; reaching this goal may require bitter compromise (Shani). Varuna rules the dark half of the sky; ruling "dark skies" Varuna is also a god of Rain. On Varuna's side, there is darkness - a dark churning ocean, a dark threatening sky. During the discussion itself, there are many fears to articulate, many grievances to air. Will the parties to the agreement be tricked in the dark, and a new threat arise? Will the rain become a catastrophic deluge? Despite Anuradha's reputation for amiability & loyalty, the native is not always Mr./Ms. Nice Guy. Mithra needs to "hammer out an agreement" and Anuradha will try every possible method to achieve the goal. Naturally, his process may be frustrating and exhausting - at rare moments, indeed, impossible. Anuradha can be a glorious deal-maker, often found in diplomacy, law, international finance & trade. In public life, Anuradha is guided by Shani's cold realism, and Kuja's competitive thrust. Material, political results of Anuradha's world-class negotiating skill are often excellent. In private life, Anuradha's compulsion to "reach agreement" and "craft a treaty" can lead to chronic, restless negotiating which reveals an underlying lack of trust in the motives of the Other. Anuradha is skillful at balancing conflicting goals, but ever suspicious. Loyalty is achieved through contractual obligation - not love.
