~~ Nakshatra or birth star ( which is called constellation) ~~

  1. 1. From www.Astrosage.com ~~ Nakshatra or birth star ( which is called constellation) ~~ in English plays a very important role in Hindu astrology. They are divided into 27 nakshatras depending on various important aspects. Read on to know more and also find out which is your nakshatra. Nakshatra or janma nakshatra plays a very important role in hindu astrology. With the help of ones janma nakshatra, one can predict the natives life pattern, character and personality. According to Indian astrology the zodiac is an imaginary belt of 360 degrees. It is this 360 belt which is divided into 27 parts or 27 nakshatras which play a major role in Astrological nakshatra calculations. There is also a 28th star called Abhijith, but many astrologers prefer using only the first 27 nakshatras for their calculations. When the 360 degree constellation belt is divided into 27 parts, each nakshatra is of 13 degree 20 minutes. These 27 parts are further divided into four parts called padas, which is quarters of 3 degrees and 27 minutes. Further, each one of these nakshatras are further divided into four quarters or in astrological terms, four padas. So, now we can say that…one rashi = 9 padas.
  2. 2. For example, lets take the first rashi Mesha (Aries) which has 30 degrees = four padas of first nakshatra ashwini + four padas of second nakshatra Bharani + one pada of the third nakshatra Krittika. Now, apart for calculative classification, these Nakshatras are broadly classified into three groups Deva(divine), Nara(human), Rakshasa(demonic). They are further divided into gender (male or female) and Varna (cast). Each nakshatra is ruled by its respective planet and also has its respective deity. The study of stars in astrology is called “Stellar astrology”, some examples for stellar astrology are KP system and Dhruva Nadi. Here is the table consisting the 27 nakshatras its respective deity and its ruling planet.
