Dhanishta Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

Depending upon characteristics of each constellation (nakshatra), find out the best match for Dhanishta and their compatibility with each constellation.

Ashwini-Dhanishta Nakshatras

This is a risky connection. Often the relationships which are based off sex but terrible in reality is what this relationship is about. This can come off as borderline unacceptable behavior for both on an everyday basis making things tough, and not in the positive way. The sex, however, can be moderately good to good considering both Ashvini and Dhanishta love sex. This is a relationship which can trap you with delusional ideas of a future or through wrong steps taken during the relationship leading to a bad marriage.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 21/36 which is 58%.

Bharani-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Red flags all over, this is what a relationship of Bharani and Dhanishta can be like. Dhanishta is the worst sexual partner for Bharani. The deeper sexual needs of Bharani will not be met and can make this relationship obnoxious and self-destructive, wasting time in things which makes a Bharani’s situation worse, either through sexual obsession or detachment-both ways.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 9/36, which is 25%.

Krittika-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Dhanishtha likes to be in control and the one to chase & seduce openly and that works fine with Krittika as they are diffident or shy about their sensuality. They can have opinions regarding power and control in the relationship as they do not wish to be dominated. This is a good relationship.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 23/36, which is 50%.

Rohini-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Dhanishta wants nothing to do with commitment unless it has materialism involved. They are not going to commit for the sake of romance or love. Rohini will obviously feel hurt or disregarded due to this. Dhanishta wants to live a luxurious life but when Rohini says the same thing, Dhanishta starts judging them for it. Rohini doesn’t know what to make of a person who says something and thinks something else. Lots of mixed signals and low on understanding or love.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 20/36, which is 55%.

Mrigashirsha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Dhanishtha might not respect Mrigashira’s sensitivity or their need for intellectual ascension. Dhanishtha doesn’t understand the whole point of running after intellect or wisdom or even an education when you can just lavish around if you get the opportunity. This will obviously create disturbance as one loves educating themselves and other doesn’t see a point in that. Doesn’t work.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 15/36, which is an 42%.

Ardra-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Immense lack of trust lies in the relationship of Dhanishta and Ardra. Both do not trust each-other; besides, Dhanishta sees Ardra as a strong, analytical and unnecessarily dissatisfied with life, and doesn’t view their emotions in the process. This leads to a very tiring and disturbing relationship.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 18/36, which is an 50%.

Punarvasu-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Friendship is an important ingredient in any relationship, the openness to have conversations and candid, genuine ones. When Punarvasu and Dhanistha get together in a romantic relationship, Dhanistha starts expecting too much and Punarvasu believes in letting time work its wonder. There can be a fallout if Dhanishtha does not remember the friendship part and overloads Punarvasu with expectations beyond a sane level. Try to be more accommodating.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 16/36, which is an 46%.

Pushya-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Pushya belongs to ‘sheep yoni’ and Dhanishta belongs to ‘lion yoni’. This is completely an incompatible union from Moon sign and yoni aspect. Pushya doesn’t like the dominance and borderline narcissism of Dhanishtha and doesn’t feel comfortable in their presence either.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 10/36, which is a 28%.

Ashlesha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Ashlesha likes Dhanishta for their strength, protectiveness and unconventional outlook. They can wish for a long-term with them, the only issue here is that Ashlesha should try to not be detached as Dhanishta needs assurance of emotions in a relationship.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 22/36, which is a 60%.

Magha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Very less compatibility and even lesser faithfulness brews in this relationship. Dhanishtha is a lion and Magha is a rat. There is no power play just dominance of the first on the other. Dhanishtha feels no interest in making any efforts towards Magha and Magha can return the favor by being sexually involved with others, which Dhanistha is least bothered about, including Magha’s existence.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 20/36, which is a 55%.

Purva Phalguni-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Dhanishtha can be loving and caring to the less fortunate but not to you, Purva Phalguni, why? Purva Palguni feels like they’re living next to a volcano and have no idea how and when it will burst which is the same as walking on eggshells.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 6/36, which is a 19%.

Uttara Phalguni-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Uttara Phalguni and Dhanishta can be good friends but pathetic lovers. Dhanishta loves to fight, and Uttara Phalguni has no issues with confrontation. Dhanishtha expects perfection from Uttara Phalguni while being massively imperfect themself. Jealousy, rivalry, fights & arguments will never let either of you be invested in the relationship. The perfect recipe for a fall out.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 12/36, which is a 29%.

Hasta-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Hasta, very clearly needs emotional support in love due to so many fears they have within them. Dhanishta cannot provide emotional strength or connection to Hasta. If Hasta wants to be in a relationship with them, they need to learn to depend on themselves emotionally. Hasta loves Dhanishta’s strength, but what’s the point if Dhanishta can’t even emotionally support Hasta with it?-something they need the most.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 18/36, which is a 50%.

Chitra-Dhanishta Nakshatras

There’s a level of immaturity in this relationship as both Chitra and Dhanishta try to have the last word in a fight. Does that really matter who wins if you lose the relationship?-Just asking. It makes no sense. Be more accepting of each other’s views instead of proving the other wrong and power-play.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 18/36, which is a 50%.

Swati-Dhanishta Nakshatras

No one likes an underconfident partner, and no one likes an arrogant partner either. Both are signs of insecurity. Be self-assured if you want to be good in your relationships and stand your ground with integrity. Do not cross boundaries and do not try to impress others. With Dhanishta, Swati wishes they could have at least spiritually be where Dhanishtha are, but Swati can’t, if they are always so insecure. Besides, Dhanishtha would like you to be self-assured and comfortable with who you are.

Vishakha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Anuradha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 11/36, which is a 32%.

Jyeshtha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Purva Ashada-Dhanishta Nakshatras

The romantic association of a Dhanishta and Purva Ashada is that of Mars-Venus. This type of relationship is characterized by a strong sexual attraction which dies out soon after. The relationship doesn’t have anything as such and sometimes, one may wonder why were they even attracted to such a person especially in times of arguments.

Uttara Ashada-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Uttara Ashada may not be the one to understand the subtlety of love and affection. They might also be naturally distant to people, in general. This may make Dhanishta restless and lose their cool.

Shravana-Dhanishta Nakshatras

The relationship between Dhanishta and Shravana can work as they gel well together.

Let them fight this battle and do not meddle in it trying to sort it for them. We’re all on our own journeys even if we’re together and that should be respected by conforming to healthy boundaries.

Dhanishtha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Shatabhisha-Dhanishta Nakshatras

The relationship between Shatabhisha and Dhanishtha is a comfortable one as long as it works. They both like each other’s presence and can work well together, and Dhanishtha doesn’t mind Shatabhisha’s need for space. However, if Shatabhisha hurts Dhanishtha, they will hurt them back and profusely. The relationship works on a give & take format and the other receives on the same level as they give. This isn’t a selfless love, but a workable one.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 28/36, which is a 77%

Purva Bhadrapada-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Sex binds Purva Bhadrapada and Dhanishta together. Whenever Dhanishta feels they’re not getting the respect they expect out of Purva Bhadrapada, they will fight with them until they get it. Whatever rules apply to one also applies on the other. Another give & take relationship, where you get as much as you give and nothing less or more.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 22/36, which is a 58%

Uttara Bhadrapada-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Uttara Bhadrapada, doesn’t care about Dhanishtha’s existence and there is nothing a Dhanishtha can do about it. Uttara Bhadrapada are self-assured people don’t care about anyone trying to show dominance or control in any way, shape or form and therefore, it doesn’t work. Uttara Bhadrapada is happy in their own world unless anybody adds any real value to their life, which is something Dhanishta doesn’t understand. Therefore, this is their worst relationship.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 6/36, which is a 17%

Revati-Dhanishta Nakshatras

Revati and Dhanishtha both love sex. But there is one difference, Revati requires themselves to be respected and honored in a relationship to come to the point of being sexually involved with anyone. Revati can be indulgent in sex with only one partner, which means they are not frivolous, making this relationship go South in no time. Dhanishta, the one who likes to be in control and put on a pedestal doesn’t comply with giving the same level of supremacy to Revati. Revati doesn’t associate with people who don’t respect them, in general. This is another of their worst relationship.
