Vishakha Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

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

Aswini-Vishakha Nakshatras

Vishakha and Ashwini form a relationship which can lead to mostly a sexual relationship. Vishakha are sexually ferocious and dominant in bed. Vishakha are resembled by the ‘tigress’ which makes them hunt their interests down and have it. But Vishakha are not satisfied by any other constellation except one which exhibits the qualities of a ‘tiger’. In social settings, they appear the opposite of what they are within the bedroom. The bigger issue however is the lack of sentiments in this relationship. Commitment can be an issue from both sides.

Bharani-Vishakha Nakshatras

Rohini-Vishakha Nakshatras

Vishakha is sexually ferocious and power-packed. Rohini is a softie, emotionally. Vishakha, therefore is unable to understand Rohini’s emotional needs. Vishakha thinks that just sexual fulfilment will keep Rohini happy because that is what the seduction is for, whereas Rohini is one who wants to deeply connect and entangle around its mate to make love-making an experience of a lifetime, every time. Vishakha doesn’t get it and can be dismissive of emotions altogether. It is also very practical and worldly, rather than dreamy.

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

Mrigashirsha-Vishakha Nakshatras

Mrigashira can seem nagging to a Vishakha who believes they’re fine just the way they are. What these both fail to realize is that its not necessary that just because you’re good friends, you can be good lovers as well. The amalgamation of perfect lover cum friendship at the same time is not bestowed upon everyone. Mrigashira’s expectations can change and Vishakha might look at the relationship the same way as they did before. This creates a commotion and what seemed fine can get distorted long run.

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

Ashlesha-Vishakha Nakshatras

Ashlesha belongs to the cat yoni and Vishakha is a tigress. Although they belong to the cat family, the need to prove superior due to being ‘lesser than’ prowess never leaves.
