Nakshatra – Abhijit


Colour: Brownish yellow
Lucky letters: J & K

The Abhijit Jatakas are marked by their well-proportioned body, magnanimous personality and penetrating looks. With deep sense of religion, courteous nature and innate optimism, they are well honoured by the learned and respected. It is often noticed that the Jatakas born under this Nakshatra are the most famous ones in their respective families. Usually it is noted that the Abhijit Jatakas face severe financial crunch till the age of 27. Things however rapidly change for the better after that. Often more that one matrimonial alliance is noted. Family is never the symbol of happiness for them. Interestingly, the story of the female natives is just the opposite in this regard. Health in general is one of the causes of concern for the natives of this Nakshatra. They are prone to whooping cough, rheumatism, arthritics or skin diseases. A threat to life is noted between 17 to 20 years of age for both the sexes of the natives. Once past this age, there shall however be no major threat any longer. However it is worthwhile to note that in orthodox Vedic Astrology, Abhijit is not considered while calculating. The reason for the same is that the Moons transit of the sidereal (fixed) zodiac takes approximately 27 days and 7 – hours. This is why we have 27 Nakshatras dividing the zodiac of 3600 into 27 parts, (each 130 20? of arc) Each Nakshatra was identified with a star, (or star cluster) and named there from. The 7? hour shortfall in a sidereal lunar transit was made up by a short-span intercalary (hypothetical) Nakshatra. This Nakshatra is called Abhijit. The span of Abhijit is determined proportionally as (7h 38min / 24 hrs) x 130 20? = 40 14? 13", which is from 2760 40? to 2800 54" 13"overlapping the 21st Nakshatra (Uttarashadha). This is why; the traditional Vedic astrologers did not impart much significance to Abhijit while making calculations.
