TARA

Indian Jupiter Goddess

Also known as TARAKA, TĀRAKĀ, TĀRĀ

Goddess of Jupiter

She is the planet with the red spot, which no celestial face cream seems able to remove. Please do not look too closely through your telescopes.

TARA is married to BRIHASPATI, the Lord of Prayer, and is the mother of BUDHA, the planet Mercury, due to a sordid abduction affair by CHANDRA the Moon. It’s a celestial soap opera up there.
