Nakshatra Feature Focus: Pug-Pretty Rohini 🐶

Rose McGowan, Rohini ASC

There are certain features that can be telltale signs of a nakshatra, even if the natives do not always look overtly similar across all features. There are a few specific features I love to check for when I'm suspecting that Rohini रोहिणी nakshatra (10° – 23°20′ Vrishabha/Taurus) may be present. Rohini is ruled by two feminine and watery planets, Venus & Moon, which gives it a sweet appearance that I've previously described as "sugar cube" like, in my video exploration of this nakshatra. For this series, I've also noted a certain pug-puppy" look to these women (in their eye-distance, nose, and face shape).

Pugs are notorious for the way they were bred to appear squishy, pouty, and puppy-like to old age (removing the predatory appearance traits), and these origin themes (for both good and bad) relate to Rohini's cosmic nature, which I explore more in the full video linked below.

Rohini natives tend to have a rounded-square or rectangular face shape, with a structured jawline and lower face that contrasts a rounded and soft upper face (the eye/forehead area). Their forehead is generally very round and short. Their cheek bones are prominent and medium to large in size, which often gives the face a natural contour. Rohini's eyes are medium to large, slightly rounded and protruding, and wide-set. They have a neutral to slightly downturned tilt. Rohini's nose generally looks soft overall and is upturned and short, with a full & boxy tip. Back in regards to their more structured lower face, they tend to have a slightly long ramus with a low gonial angle, and a notably flat/square chin that is generally slightly short. I show a visual of this in the gallery below. Rohini's lips are typically medium to thick in fullness, with an especially soft and fleshy appearance. Their coloring is most frequently light to mid-toned and low contrast in regards to their genetic background. Like trine Shravana, Rohini's often wear their brows in understated ways, such as styling them to be typically rather thin, sometimes even bleached or lightened. Overall, Rohini's head and facial bone structure tends to appear large in comparison to their body.

You can watch my new Youtube-short to see Rohini beauty in motion and to see more Rohini natives (it can also be found on instagram @claire.nakti or tiktok @clairenakti). As with everything in astrology, these features to check for are a tendency not a rule for Rohini's physical appearance. I've explored Rohini's cosmic nature in a full video documentary & ebook on this nakshatra, exploring topics like its connection to "born sexy yesterday", the "Lolita" archetype, being "the creator of creatures", and more.

A person's other primary placements will bring in features as well, though one will tend to come to the surface the most strongly (relating to their dominant planet); one can have an Rohini primary placement but be dominated by one of their other primary placements instead. In this way, I seek in these posts to isolate the Rohini nakshatra appearance influence as much as possible by finding the most consistent common physical ground amongst its natives, while having awareness that each individual you're seeing has other astrological influences at play as well that make them unique. I wanted to make these posts so that you don't have to rely on two people looking strikingly similar to know they share a nakshatra, but rather can more consciously/logically check for certain revealing features even amongst people who have many differences.

For more information on the sacred feminine role (and its connection to beauty & sensuality)-- in both its celebrated and demonized necessary expressions-- you can check out my female spiritual path course.
