Nakshatras and characteristics


Vedic astrologers identified number of Constellations, but constellations falling in the orbit of moon were considered instrumental for the purpose of Indian astrology. Constellation means – constellation of stars. On an average there are visible 5-6 stars in each constellation and the group was to be named identified via a major star of the group.
At all 28 constellations were supposed to be more influential & time-space relationship was innovated and a few formule invented on the basis of moon-constellation (Nakshatra) relationship. Mythological stories explain these 27 (out of 28, one Abhijit was considered less important) constellations be the wives of moon.
Moon transiting through a constellation, though very near to earth, it affects all the cosmic radiations reaching up to earth or the native, the final destination of Indian astrology. This is the reason. The moon & the constellation relationship assumed maximum importance in Indian astrology. As a later development from one birth to another via position of moon in particular constellation. Break up point between the two birth was supposed to be longitude of the moon.

The native’s had troubled married life.The dark side of this Nakshatra is an introvert and adamant personality. If they don’t have any work, they are extremely lazy.

The first half of life of the natives of ‘Utara-Ashada’ is troublesome but they get success in the later half. ‘Abraham Lincoln’ is the best example who had his natal moon in Uttara-Ashada.
Shravan:- This lies completely in ‘Capricorn’ Astronomically it consist of three stars which are taken as the three foot prints of Lord Vishnu.

The duties of this Nakshatra are Vishnu and Saraswati, Vishnu the protector, renders the virtues of humanity and charity in the native and goddess ‘Saraswati’ blesses the native with knowledge, music and humanitarian attitude.The word ‘Shravan’ has its roots in the Sanskrit word ‘Shiv’ which means to hear this could to co-related to Shruti i.e. learning by hearing. It also represents their ability of a keen observer. The relation of this Nakshatra with knowledge is further justified as it is related to ‘Peepal tree’ under which ‘ Buddha’ got enlightment. The animal symbol is female monkey. The activeness in the native of ‘Shravan’ can be co-related with the animal symbol. As it is said, that excess of way thing is bad the excess knowledge of the native makes them rigid or obstinate. They create enemies themselves because of this nature. The primary motivation is earth, they earn money first and then go for higher goals.
Dhanishtha:- One half of Dhanishtha lies in ‘Capricorn’ and the remaining in Aquarius. And the ruling planet is ‘Mars’ so there is a combination of Saturn & Mars. The effect of Saturn gives spiritual inclination and an interest in occult sciences. Sympathy and compassion for others is very evident in the native. Mars bestows its energy and enthusiasm on the native as mars is exalted here. The animal symbol of this constellation is female lion which justifies the extra energy. When required they put their best. It is appropriate to call these native as spiritual warrior. The symbol of this star is a musical drum. There is a natural inclination for music in the native and the interesting point is that these people have a rhythm in their every activity.The deities are eight vasus, the gods of energy and light. The eight vasus give high virtues, kindness and high ambition to be prosperous. The dark side is that over ambition makes them greedy and self-centered. This is demonic in nature and the native sometimes becomes merciless. They enjoy isolation and become arrogant.
Shatbhisha:- This constellation lies completely in Aquarius. Shatbhisha means of hundred physicians pouring divine nectar to nourish humanity. The pot in the zodiac sign Aquarius reflects the same. Another meaning of Shatbhisha is “hundred stars”, hence, it is a fortunate star. The native of Shatbhisha enjoys exploding vigour which helps them defeat their enemies and emerge as a winning star.The ruling planet is Rahu. Hence this is a combination of Saturn and Rahu. Together, Saturn and Rahu gives the native philosophical and mystical mind. We can find secretive nature of the native enjoying independence and solitude, Rahu, reflects serpent energy and is associated with kundalini energy. Meditation can make this energy active and can pave path for big achievements. Animal symbol is female horse which is reflected in the native in form of energy and loyalty.The deity is Varuma, the god of rain. Varuma is also known for power of healing. The primary motivation is dharma. Hence the power of healing is justful and impartial. The native of this constellation is an excellent judge of moral and immoral.The dark side of this Nakshatra is the dominant depression and loneliness. The native takes life as a set rules of duty and leads restrained life. Persons born in this Nakshatra witness a difficult childhood making them mature pre-timely. As this constellation is demonic in nature reflecting harshness of speech and dry nature.
Purva Bhadrapada:- The major part of this constellation lies in Aquarius with one part in Pisces hence it is a combination of Saturn and Jupiter and the ruling planet is also Jupiter. This beautiful Saturn-Jupiter combination connects with the intellectual on one hand and a philosophical brain on the other hand. The effect of ‘Saturn’ denies the set norms of the society.The animal symbol is made lion and the king sets his own rules. The striking feature is the foresightedness. Purvabhadra means former lucky feet. It has an interesting relationship with the deity ‘Aja ek Pada which means ‘one-footed goat’. The deity is considered to be a form of Lord Shiva and vehicle of God of fire Agni hence they are energetic and passionate.The primary motivation is ‘Artha’ and the natives are usually found skilled in the art of earning money.One of the merits of this constellation i.e. enthusiasm when increases in ratio become the negative of this constellation and the native can be very short tempered, arrogant and anxious and a decline in enthusiasm makes them nervous and fearful. They may be very harsh in speech and extremely criticizing. One of the symbols is two-faced man. This symbolizes their ability to see a thing from different point of view but to others they seem to be double faced.
Uttarabhadrapada:- This constellation lives entires in ‘Pisces’. The ruling planet is ‘Saturn’ and hence the combination is same as that of Poorvabhadrapada i.e. Jupiter-Saturn. As the ruling planet is ‘Saturn’ there is more endurance discipline and self-control, as this called the warrier star so we find the native fighting for the noble causes. The combination of Saturn &Jupiter confers generosity and kindness the spirituality is of high level. The sign is a tow headed man and the deities are ‘Ahirbhudhanya and Lakshmi who is a serpent and a part of Lord Shiva’s army. Snake symbolizes fertility, secrecy and ‘Kundaline power, all this makes the native energetic and exploring. The other deity Lakshmi bestows the native with fortune, health, wealth and happiness.The animal symbol is ‘female cow’ who is sacred and worshiped in India. The women of this Nakshatra are honoured in their families. Although Uttarabhadrapada people are more controlled than Poorvabhadrapada yet anger and arrogance is the negative shade of their personality. They can be extremely careless and ignorant sometimes. The primary motivation is ‘Kama’ which makes them addicted sometimes.
 Rewati:- This Nakshatra lies completely in Pisces and the ruling planet is Mercury. The combination of Jupiter and Mercury leads to excellent creative intelligence. Pisces is the sign where Venus is exalted. So fine arts and literature is in the blood of the native. Ravindranath Tagore is the example of moon in this Nakshatra. Rewati means wealthy and hence material prosperity is associated with it. The primary motivation is moksha in the blessings of Jupiter results in high level of spiritual growth. Moreover it is a ‘mridu’ Nakshatra giving its natives. The animal symbol is female elephant which in India is considered sacred and is associated with wealth.The symbol is fish, who has a deep attachment with its place and never hurts others. The empathic nature of the persons of this Nakshatra is therefore justified. Devguru Jupiter minimized most of the negative shades. They sometimes feels disappointed and are dominated by inferiority complex till they assess themselves. They are highly sensitive and sometimes become very stubborn. They do a lot for others and then expect the same which ultimately leads them to frustration. Their emotional depending is very high.
