In Vedic Astrology, Janma Nakshatra, also known as Birth Star, is popularly referred to as Nakshatra. Nakshatra Finder helps you in finding your Nakshatra accurately. The word Nakshatra is derived from two words in the Sanskrit language: ‘Naks’ and ‘Shetra’. In Sanskrit, the word ‘Naks’ means ‘Sky’ and ‘Shetra’ means ‘Area’ or ‘Region’. The two words when conjoined into one refer to a ‘region or point in the sky’. In Indian Astrology, Nakshatra refers to Lunar Mansions.
The sky, as we see it, is divided into 27 imaginary but equal segments known as the Nakshatras. The moon, which is accorded high priority in the Vedic Astrology, travels one segment (Nakshatra) per day. Every Constellation (Nakshatra) is further split into padas. Finding and reading the Nakshatra or the Constellation is one of the critical factors which go into making accurate predictions.
Every Nakshatra is ruled by a planet and a corresponding deity. Nakshatras are classified as male and female and are attributed characteristics accordingly.. Each of the Nakshatras reflects personality indicators and temperament of the native. A Nakshatra also reveals to you how your luck will turn out be.
