Mercury is the main planetary ruler of this nakshatra. Mercurial energy refines itself from its deceptive, cunning, childlike beginnings to a more serious energy, which tries to control the scattered functioning of the mind. Considering that Moon represents the mass mentality, Mercury’s functioning here is directed to controlling that energy. It is no wonder then that Jyeshta natives feel like the police of the world.
