Despite challenges, Titan Industries may register growth, says Ganesha

The Great Vedic Astrology has divided the Zodiac Signs into 12 parts based on the placement of the moon at the time of birth. The Sages went on to divide the 12 zodiac signs into 27 Nakshatras. As the Vedic Astrology is based on the movements of Sun, Moon, Stars, and Planets, so the word Nakshatra or Constellation was used to further divide the Zodiac Signs. Nakshatra is a combination of two words Naks meaning ‘sky’ and Shetra meaning ‘region’ or an ‘area’.  Now the 12 Zodiac signs have an area of 360 Degrees. Out of these 360 Degrees, a Nakshatra comprises 13 Degrees and 20 minutes each, starting from zero Aries and 30 Degrees Pisces. These Nakshatra’s are asterisms that are somewhat near to the Moon’s elliptical path around the Earth. They often help in the estimation of the Moon’s distance from the Earth.

As per the Hindu mythology, the Moon is married to all the 27 Nakshatras, who are the daughters of King Daksha. Moon spends approximately one day in each constellation, and thus the lunar month is of approximately 27 days, which is equal to the number of Nakshatras. Based on the attributes such as its owner, deity, sex, caste, species etc, the Nakshatras are further classified. Nakshatras are further divided into 4 Quarters known as Pada. The span of each Pada is 3 degrees 20 minutes which is known as Navamsa. For finer predictions, the placement of the Planets in these Nakshatras are studied. Zodiac signs are ruled by the Sun, in the same way, the Nakshatras are ruled by the movement of the Moon. Each sign or rashi contains 9 padas. So Nakshatras, an important part of our kundali, are used for various purposes. It's one major use is the starting point of a dasha or planetary period or cycles that divide the time into major periods and sub-periods and to choosing a muhurtha for important activity.


The names of the 27 Nakshatras are 

Ashwini, Bharani, Krittika, Rohini, Mrigashira, Arda, Punarvasu, Pushya, Ashlesha, Magha, Purva Phalguni, Uttara Phalguni, Hasta, Chitra, Swati and Vishaka.

These Nakshatras are further divided into 7 divisions. And these divisions tell us how the work and at which time should be done.

  1. Stira or Fixed

It is useful for any work that is fixed, stable and long term. It becomes very auspicious if the Nakshatra falls on Sunday.

  1. Chara or Movable

As the name suggests, these constellations are favourable for buying new vehicles or for journey and travel; it will be very auspicious if the Nakshatra falls on Monday.

  1. Ugra or Fierce

The constellations here are for the destructive deeds of breaking structures, imprisonment, work that requires force, weapons and confronting the enemies. It will be auspicious if it falls on Tuesday.

  1. Kshipra or Swift

These are favourable for commercial transactions, admission in colleges and loans. If Nakshatra falls on Thursday, then it is very auspicious.

  1. Mridu or Tender

They are favourable for making new friends and enjoyment of drama, fashionable dance clothes, and writing of poetry. It is auspicious if it falls on Friday.

  1. Tikshna or Sharp

They are favourable for filing a divorce, black magic, hypnotism, evoking spirits, punishment, evoking spirits etc. Very fruitful if it Nakshatras falls on Saturday

  1. Misra or Mixed

These constellations are favourable for activities like worshipping, fire ceremonies, purchasing electronics and furniture. It will be very more auspicious if these nakshatras fall on Wednesday.

The Most Important Nakshatra

The Nakshatra, which is most important in one's horoscope, is the placement of the Moon in one's chart. Then the nakshatra's of the Ascendant and Ascendant Lord (Lagna and Lagnesa) play an important role. The nakshatra occupied by the Sun also plays an important role.

In the Vedic Culture, Moon has been given primary emphasis.  This emphasis is as the natives of Indian/ Vedic culture were given birth names using the letters corresponding to their Lunar Eclipse. Many times the Ascendant is not known, but the Moon's Nakshatra is evident.

Other planet Nakshatras are less important, but if several planets occupy the same Nakshatra, then they become important. 

The major Karma is indicated by the position of Saturn in the Nakshatra.


The Most Powerful Nakshatra

The most powerful Nakshatras for wealth are Dhanishta Nakshatra, Magha Nakshtra, Punarvasu Nakshatra, Purva Phalguni Nakshatra. Other Nakshatras influencing us in terms of wealth are Rohini, Uttar Phalguni Nakshatra and Vishaka Nakshatra. Ashwini, Jyeshtha, Moola, Pushya, Swati and Uttar Ashadha Nakshatra also impact the wealth of an individual.

 

Knowledge of Tithi Bestows Wealth, 

Knowledge of Vaar increases Longevity

Knowledge of Nakshatras erases Sins.

So, know your Nakshatras and erase your 'Sins' and make your life ‘Pure’

Nakshatras with their basis on the movement of the Moon daily make a change in our life. So the problems through which we are going may it be mental or physical are the effects of the Nakshatras. So the best thing to do is know one’s Nakshatras, do not let the past Karmas affect us and live a life full of Positive Energy.
