Secrecy is the one quality which immediately separates Shatabishak from other nakshatras. Shatabishak loves to get to the truth of anything in much the same way as Mula loves to get to the root of everything. It is the master of the mental, analytical and logical.This ability to relate to everyone without preconceptions, judgements and prejudice is what makes a philosopher out of Shatabisha.
Moon in Shatabhisha are harsh in speech, but truthful, will suffer grief, but will conquer their enemies and will thoughtlessly engage in works.
It has been noticed that these people lack proper grooming and education in their formative years. They often make their own rules to deal with this tough world. Absentmindedness is one marked feature of this Nakshatra. They always convey a sense of aloofness even if they are genuinely attentive from the inside.
Satabisha people prefer solitude. Some times because of undue ambitions or rough manners they make enemies and alienate well wishers. Major reversals in business during certain stages of life are indicated. Illnesses due to Satabisha are very difficult to remedy and may require many physicians to cure. Shatabhisha induced diseases tend to become grave and chronic.
If Ketu is in the 4th quarter of Shatabhisha he will incur heavy loss of money, indulge in sex with lower class women, or even with maid servants, and might leave home if his acts are detected by the family. Venus gives early sexual contacts.
It is noticed that if an individual has their 2nd lord or 11th lord placed in Shatabhisha, they might experience a pauper state or a complete loss of family at some stage of their lives. This is because Shatabhisha has a tendency to make a zero out of things it affects in a nativity. Since it is a neuter Nakshatra it does not promote childbirth if it is connected with the 5th house or Guru.
