The Nakshatras in Vedic astrology are lunar constellations, and directly manifest its expressions. The Moon changes astrological 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 Constellations deal with these ever-changing feelings and emotions based on the Moon’s position.
