Nakshatras in Astrology

Nakshatra play a pivotal tole in vedic astrology. Ever met two people having same rashi, who have very different characteristics? This can be very common. The reason being, their nakshatras are different. For example, Scorpio or vruschika rashi consists of the 3 nakshatras – Vishakha, Anuradha and Jyeshtha. But the characteristics of the natives of the 3 nakshatras are very different. Hence, it is very important to know each nakshatra in detail.

The Meaning of Nakshatra or Constellation in Astrology

In Vedic Astrology, the 12 Rashis or Signs are divided into 27 sections. Each Section is called Nakshatra or Constellation. Every Nakshatra or constellation section is 13 degrees and 20 minutes long.  Each Rashi or Sign contains 2 and ¼ nakshatra. Nakshatra in Astrology define the personality traits of a person and his luck.

Further, each nakshatra is divided into 4 parts, which are called as Nakshatra Padas. In all, there are 108 Nakshatra padas.  

The first Nakshatra of the 27 Nakshatras is Ashwini. It falls in Aries (Mesha Rashi). The Last nakshatra is Revati Nakshatra. It falls in Pisces (Meena Rashi).

The nakshatra in which moon falls at the time of birth is called janma Nakshatra. This janma nakshatra defines the nature of the person. It is also used to evaluate good and bad periods in the life of a person based on nakshatra Tara Chakra.
