The Nakshatras in Vedic astrology are lunar constellations, and directly manifest its expressions. The Moon changes signs (houses) about every 2.3 days. It takes 28 days to move through the 12 signs of the zodiac, translating into two weeks of a waxing (bright half) Moon and two weeks of a waning (dark half) Moon. The Moon is related to our intuition, intelligence and our natural emotions. The 28 Vedic Nakshatras deal with these ever-changing feelings and emotions based on the Moon’s position.

Abhijit Constellations Astrology:
In olden times — as against the modern times when only 27 Nakshatras are counted — there was a 28th Nakshatra called Abhijit, which ranged from 6°40′ to 10°53′ in Capricorn in the Sidereal Zodiac. This overlaps the last phase of the 21st Nakshatra Uttarashada and the early phase of the 22nd Nakshatra, Shravan. It is said in folklore that the 27 Nakshatras are the wives of the Moon. But, Lord Krishna clearly mentioned in the Bhagvat Geeta that Abhijit was his personal Nakshatra, making it the 28th one. Abhijit Nakshatra is ruled by the deity Brahma.
