Moon in Vishaka Nakshatram, (Constellation) gives the basic mentality of the person, the first reaction to any situation, it might not translate into action and it might subside with experience and age but this is your first reaction to any situation you are in, :-) and it becomes more prominent If Moon is in Lagna (Ascendant), or Cancer Ascendant (Lagna), because Moon is the lord of this house, and Taurus Ascendant (Lagna) where Moon gets its exaltation, or If Moon is Atmakaraka, otherwise for all other houses this mentality becomes equal or secondary to the mentality emanating from the Lagna and the Nakshatram rising.
And Vishaka males and females are automatically attracted to each other, some times your hear someone sing and If that singer happens to be your Nakshtram the liking is natural and automatic, same thing for looks, voice, walking style, expressions etc. and the same pattern applies to the matching Nakshatra, like Chitra is matching Nakshatra for Vishaka and vice versa and other Nakshatra with same Jupiter lordship like Poorva Bhadrapada and Punarvasu.
For Vishaka natives:
People with Pushyami, Anuradha and Uttara Bhadrapada (Shani Lordship) might bring wealth.
People with Ashwini, Magha and Mula (Ketu Lordship) might bring blessings for well being,
People with Krittika, Uttara Phalguni and Uttara Ashadha (Surya Lordship) might help them to achieve their goals.
People with Mrigasira, Chitra and Dhanista (Mars Lordship) might be friendly.
People with Arudra, Swati and Satabisha (Rahu Lordship) might become fast friends.
People with Aslesha, Jyestha and Revati (Mercury Lordship ) might be dangerous.
People with Bharani, Purva Phalguni and Purva Ashadha (Venus Lordship)might create obstacles.
People with Rohini, Hasta and Shravana (Moon Lordship) might cause death.
The reason why I took Shil Ponde is because his Jyotish Shastra was written way back in 1939 when the world was in turmoil, and Intelligence agencies were not digital savvy to manipulate the write ups, this is the reason why I keep checking my write ups for manipulations and I always find lot of changes, so I correct them back.
Females: Vishaka Nakshatram: Shil Ponde, Hindu Astrology, Jyotisha Shastra,
Delicate features and a soft pleasing voice, but do not let these deceive you , underneath she has a strong character, even hard at times , she will always follow her own inclinations and is not amenable to advice from others.

Shil Ponde, Hindu Astrology, Jyotish Shastra,
Aggressive and impatience, these people are overbearing in their desire to get things done and they are very active but not popular, since their manner causes people to actively dislike them and resent their extreme aggressiveness, they are very proud and because of this , they take offense easily at some fancied slight, their anger makes enemies of people who might cooperate with them, if treated differently they will overcome their enemies through sheer force of character, but such people will still remain enemies, tact and kindness are qualities which they should try to develop.

Note: Please note that you might come across lots of celebrities and popular people placed all over the constellations, some put them with constellation where Sun is present, some with constellation where Lagna is, and some with Mars also, but the correct one is Moon in its constellation because Moon controls mind and it is considered the birth star, so the Nakshatra with Moon is what I am following, and please don't just read view of one Astrologer and feel very bad, :-) Nakshatra is one level of your character, there is lot more I would say 90% more to your character then just Nakshatra, but Nakshatra and Moon are very important as far as your relations are concerned, hence I have mentioned number of Marriages and number of children.
And as all Astrologers pre modern and modern were/are men, so it is also obvious that they would be little to some extent biased towards women, :-) If women feel they are not getting proper presentation of their character, then write your own Astrology and see that women gets proper representation. :-) and I am also a Man, though I try to be with out bias but you know. :-))
