Why Swati nakshatra is considered a very auspicious nakshatra---- There is this story on planets arguing on most auspicious Nakshtras with planets keen on promoting and glorifying the qualities of their nakshtras shani was advocating swati nakshatra on being questioned by sun in presence of the almighty God Saturn related the story of chatak bird Even as the chatak bird always keeps his beak open, waiting for the first raindrop of swati nakshatra (one of the 27 constellations in a year) to fall into it, you must keep your heart forever open. Maybe the drops of God's grace will one day descend upon you.
“Legend has it that the arrival of the Chatak bird heralds the onset of the monsoon. Even in poetry it is referred to as the bird that eagerly waits to taste the first drops of the rain. So, its sighting near the outskirts of the city predicts the arrival of monsoon at an early date,”
The chatak bird will not be satisfied with water found anywhere on this earth. But only a few drops of water from the blue cloud in the sky will satisfy him. There is so much water in the pond, the river, the ocean - he won't take one drop of it. That is the nature of the chatak.
"The blue cloud may punish him with a thunderbolt, but he never stops singing the glories of the cloud. This is chastity, this is surrender. This sloka shows us this in full. "I do not want anything else from anywhere; I want nothing but Your mercy. Please give it to me."
~Srila Bhakti Sundar
Swati natives also have a tendency to wait for a long time to witness the result of something they have planned or executed and this characteristic of Swati natives can sometimes become a negative quality as natives under the strong influence of this nakshatra can keep on waiting for something or some result for a very long period of time, even when there is no reasonable possibility of materialization of that thing or result. And since this nakshatra is more under the influence of air than any other element, so the natives under the strong influence of this nakshatra are also likely to have an inability to take decisions on time, inability to convert or put their ideas to practical work or execution even though their ideas may be very practical and can bring very good results if executed.
