Revati is the Hindu name for Zeta Piscium, a star on the edge of the Pisces zodiac constellation. In Hindu sidereal astronomy this star is identified as the First Point of Aries, i.e. when the Sun crosses this star, a new solar year begins. Revathi is the last star in the Pisces constellation, which is the last zodiac sign. Ashwini is the first star in Aries constellation, which is the first zodiacal sign.


Revati (Devanagari: रेवती) is the twenty-seventh nakshatra in Hindu astrology (or the 28th, if Abhijit is counted) corresponding to ζ Piscium. It is ruled by Puṣan, one of the 12 Ādityas. According to the beliefs of traditional electional astrology, Revati is a sweet or delicate nakshatra, meaning that while Revati has the most influence, it is best to begin working on things of physical beauty like music and jewellery .[1]

Revati is symbolized by fish (often a pair of fish). It is also associated with the sea.[2]

Traditional Hindu given names are determined by which pada (quarter) of a nakshatra the Moon was in, at the time of birth. In the case of Revati, the given name would begin with the following syllables:

  • De (दे)
  • Do (दो)
  • Cha (च)
  • Chi (ची)[3]

Revati is seen as a nakshatra that nurtures and fosters wealth, expansion, and vigour. Revati is great for beginning a new trip, marriage rituals, childbirth, or shopping for new clothing. Fish are used to represent the nakshatra and symbolize learning and movement.
