THE 27 NAKSHATRAS AND THEIR CHARACTERISTICS

NAKSHATRAS


Naksha means the approach and Tra means to guard.  Nakshatras break up the zodiac into equal segments.   There are 27 Nakshatras and each Nakshatra takes up a space of 13'20" in the Zodiac.   These are also called as Lunar Mansions.  Moon has special relationship with Nakshatras.  The Nakshatra position of the Moon is vital and it is the focal point in Vedic Astrology.   Each Nakshatra has a planetary ruler assigned to it and this rulership is important in Vimshottari Dasha System.  Nakshatras with their cosmic powers rule and direct life towards its karmic path, subtly influencing to bring about changes in the psyche. The power of Nakshatras should never be underestimated. Their capacity of changing our life patterns is of prime importance in the Vedic astrology.
