Revati, the culmination of Mercurial energy, in fact all zodiacal energies, is represented in the celestial firmament by a group of very faint stars in the constellation of Pisces. The exact number of these stars is not specified in the ancient texts, although 27 seems like an automatic choice! The ancient vedic seers saw that these stars made a shape similar to a dhola (drum strung across the neck with a strap and played with both hands, used for carrying in processions).
"Revati" has a simple translation - "wealthy". As we shall discover later, this name conveys a lot about this asterism on all levels, even though it is not apparent straightaway why the final asterism representing complete dissolution be related to something as transitory as wealth. Its alternative translation is "to transcend", which is more in keeping with this being the final nakshatra.
Since this asterism has a lot to do with duality, it has two and not one main symbol - a " fish swimming in the sea" and a "drum".A fish swimming in the water is an obvious choice as a symbol for this nakshatra, as it falls completely in the sign of Pisces, which as we know is represented by two fishes swimming in opposite directions. The symbolism of a fish swimming in the sea has been used from time immemorial to show the soul's journey in the waters of the universe. Vishnu, the preserver among the Trinity, is often shown sitting atop the sea of consciousness.
Pushan, a solar deity, similar to the Sun god, is considered the main presiding deity of this asterism.
Its sexual animal is an Elephant. In fact many of these nakshatras' qualities can be gauged frorn the essential nature and behaviour of elephants. The fact that elephants prefer level grounds rather than uneven terrain, once again reiterates the level aspect of this nakshatra.
Rabindranath Tagore, the famous Indian writer, musician and thinker was born with his Moon placed in Revati and all of Varahamihira's precepts apply to his life and personality.
