Moon constellations

The Nakshatras are considered to be the wives of the Chandra (Moon). In vedic mythology the wives or consorts symbolize the power of the divinity. Therefore, as the wives of Chandra, the Nakshatras represent the powers of Chandra. Of what sort are these powers? Chandra indicates consciousness and that which grows as a result of what is in the consciousness. In fact, Chandra's favorite Nakshatra (wife) is Rohini, which means to grow, and which is presided by Prajapati, the lord of creation. The Nakshatras, therefore, indicate the powers of consciousness that create growth. The growth of any planet or point is dependent upon the Nakshatra in which it falls.

The Nakshatra tables provide an array of details and qualities pertaining to the Nakshatras. The growth of any planet or point is dependent upon the qualities of the Nakshatra in which it falls:

  1. In the event of benefic influences the qualities of the Nakshatra will provide healthy growth and realization.
  2. In the event of malefic influences the qualities of the Nakshatra will be perverted so as not to provide any healthy growth.

Nakshatra Categories

Some of the different categories of Nakshatras as given in the Nakshatra tables are now being explained:

Deity - The myths of these deities have a lot to reveal about the Nakshatras. For instance there is a myth that Narayana taught astrology to the Ashwins, Ashwini therefore is one of Nakshatras that indicates astrology. The deities can also be worshipped to increase the growth of those things falling in their Nakshatras.

Shakti - The power of the consciousness to create growth.

Basis Above - The foundation of the power of the consciousness.

Basis Below - The natural reciprocation, or reflection, of the Basis Above.

Result of the Shakti and Basis' - The natural result of the Shakti's and Basis, these all applied with flexibility and imagination will yield very revealing results.

Guna - Indicates the activating motivation of the Nakshatra;whether sattvic, inspired as a result of holding views that there are possibilities for elevation; rajasic, inspired due to holding views that there possibilities of fulfilling activities; or tamasic, inspired as a result of holding views that things can be depressed. Tamasic Nakshatras are not necessarily depressing; for instance Pushyami, a tamasic Nakshatra, has the Shakti to create spiritual energy. It is motivated to do this as a result of holding views that things can be depressed, in order to avoid this possibility spiritual energy is created.

Nature - The nature inclines the Nakshatras to be better suited for different tasks. For instance moveable Nakshatras will give greater growth tothis things that require movement, travel, or change. Fierce/severe Nakshatras will give greater growth to those things requiring severity, such as fighting,etc.

Race - Deva Nakshatras are inclined to uphold what they believe is good. Manusha Nakshatras are pragmatic and versatile in nature, the do what they believe will give the best results. Rakshasa Nakshatras are inclined to break taboos, restrictions, etc.

TriMurthi - Creation or Brahma Nakshatras indicate the creative aspect,these are also Karma (action) Nakshatras. Preservation or Vishnu Nakshatras are the reflection of the Brahma Nakshatras and thereby preserve or maintain what is created. These are also Bhoga (enjoyment) Nakshatras. Dissolution or Shiva Nakshatras indicate that which happens between the creative aspect and its reflection.Namely the process of understanding that results in the loss of the many in view of the One. These are also Naasa (loss) Nakshatras.

Activity - Passive Nakshatras are more receptive, active Nakshatras are more initiative, balanced Nakshatras are both active and passive depending uponneed.

Goal - Indicates the goal or purpose of the Nakshatra. Whether Dharma, finding one's place and purpose in life; Artha, material well-being as the support of the other goals; Kama, balanced fulfillment of one's desires; or Moksha, freedom from worldly suffering. The benefic or malefic influences upon the planet falling in a Nakshatra will determine to what extent the goal will be realized.

Body Parts - Useful primarily for medical astrology. The organs governed by Nakshatras with malefics or disease causing planets will be suffering due to some disruption, or excess to the proper flow of energy to that organ.

Dosha - The excess of energy the Nakshatra may give rise to.

People and Profession - These can be helpful to determine more specific detail about one's career or about people in the natives life.

Miscellaneous Articles - These can be helpful to determine more specific detail about one's possessions, expenses, goods sold, etc.
