Nakshatra Finder - Calculate Your Birth Star & Rashi By Date of Birth
The 27 signs of the Vedic Lunar Zodiac are probably the oldest astrological system of mankind. This system is so rich in mythology and meaning that we can say that it provides a system of interpretation of its own.
There is no reason why it should be subordinate to the system of the 12 "Sun signs". In the first part I will look at some characteristics of the Nakshatra system. This will be particularly interesting for the more advanced student. In the second part, I will give some examples of how to interpret charts based on the Nakshatras. I believe that part can also be digested by students who are beginners. If you like you can click here and go straightaway to this more easy to understand part.
In this part I will look at the Nakshatras from the point of view of:. There are 27 Nakshatras. Every Nakshatra measures Each Nakshatra is divided into 4 parts of 3. These parts are called padas. Each pada has the characteristics of a sign of the zodiac, starting with Aries.
Therefore, the pada system can be seen as a system which integrates the Nakshatras with the commonly used zodiac. In each Nakshatra there are 4 padas. Therefore, in 3 Nakshatras we have 12 padas. Because each pada represents a sign of the zodiac in a group of 3 Nakshatras we find the entire zodiac in the form of padasigns. Therefore, there is connection between the padas and the navamsa. The connection is simple. If a planet is in the pada of Aries then it is in the navamsa in Aries.
If it is in the pada of Taurus it is in the navamsa in Taurus and so on. Therefore, the navamsasigns and the signs of the padas are the same. The navamsa is the chart of the soul. It gives information about the state of the soul and thus of the inner life of the person.
Therefore, it can be said that the signs of the padas give information about the soul of a person. If the rashi contains information about in which padas planets are located, there is no need for a separate printout of the navamsa. Navamsasigns and padasigns are the same. Each Nakshatra represents certain gunas. And it does so not only on one level, but on three levels. Now each group of 9 Nakshatras can be divided into 3 groups of 3 Nakshatras.
This represents the gunas on a secondary level. We see that the order of Rajas, Tamas and Sattva, which we saw at the primary level, repeats itself on this level.
There are 3 groups of 9 Nakshatras. Because each group of 9 Nakshatras has been split into 3 groups of 3 Nakshatras we have a total of 9 groups which consist of 3 Nakshatras. These groups of 3 Nakshatras represent the tertiary level. The first Nakshatra of such a group represents Rajas, the second Nakshatra Tamas and the third Sattva. What we have here is a rather complicated system in which each Nakshatra represents certain gunas on different levels. Let us look at the first Nakshatra of Ashwini.
On a primary level Ashwini represents Rajas,because the Nakshatra of Ashwini is in the range of the signs Aries to Cancer. On a secondary level, Ashwini represents again Rajas, because it is part of the first group of 3 Nakshatras within the range of Aries to Cancer. And also, on a tertiary level Ashwini represents Rajas, because it is the first Nakshatra of the first group of 3 Nakshatras.
Then we come to a new group of three Nakshatras, which causes for a change at the secondary level. This group does not have Rajas at the secondary level but Tamas. Now we come to the third group of Rajas Nakshatras at the primary level.
These have Sattva on the secondary level:. Ashlesha, which is located at the end of the sign Cancer, is the last of the Rajas Nakshatras at the primary level.
The next Nakshatra has Tamas at the primary level. It is the Nakshatra of Magha which is placed at the beginning of Leo. Hopefully, the reader now has a certain feeling for the system and can easily finish this on his own. A list of all the Nakshatras follows in the table below.
The gunas are mentioned in this scheme. The primary guna is mentioned first, then the secondary and then the tertiary. If you would like to know which gunas are emphasised in a chart you could look in which Nakshatras the ascendant and the planets are located, look at the gunas of these Nakshatras and give one point for each time you see a certain guna mentioned.
For example, the first example chart in the section about interpretation is the chart of Bill Clinton He has his ascendant in Hasta, which is Tamas-Tamas-Rajas. This gives 2 points for Tamas and 1 point for Rajas.
If we add to this the gunas of the planets we get the following score: Rajas 10 points, Tamas 15 points and Sattva 5 points. Therefore Tamas is the most important guna in the character of Mr. Clinton, then comes Rajas and last comes Sattva. We can compare this to the chart of Al Gore not printed here, but birth data are March 31, , We get Rajas 13 points, Tamas 3 points and Sattva 14 points. Of course, this system is helpful, but to really evaluate a chart we should always look at the chart as a whole and not just at the gunas the planets and the ascendant are in.
Each Nakshatra has a certain planet as its lord. Indeed, it is the lord of the Nakshatra in which the Moon at birth is placed which decides which is the first dasa of the life of the person. Therefore, these Nakshatralords are important. It is interesting to see if we can find some connection between the lordships and the gunas.
And indeed the connection is there. It turns out that Ketu, the Moon and Jupiter are the lords of Nakshatras, which have Rajas at a tertiairy level. Venus, Mars and Saturn are the lords of the Nakshatras, which have Tamas at a tertiary level. Finally, the Sun, Rahu and Mercury are the lords of the Nakshatras, which have Sattva at a tertiary level. Before we draw conclusions from this let us look at the secondary level.
Ketu, Venus and the Sun are the lords of Nakshatras which have Rajas at the secondary level this is the first group of nine Nakshatras.
The Moon, Mars and Rahu are the lords of Nakshatras which have Tamas at the secondary level this is the second group of nine Nakshatras. Finally, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury are the lords of Nakshatras, which have Sattva at the secondary level the third group of nine Nakshatras.
This is interesting because it gives us information about the gunas of the planets. If we mention the secondary level first and the tertiary level, second we can make the following summary. Now we can draw some interesting conclusions about the character of the planets. Venus is a planet that has to do with love and lust. To get what we want we move into action Rajas.
The result of this action is that we are going deeper into material life Tamas. The Sun is a fiery planet Rajas , however it represents the soul in the chart and has therefore Sattva characteristics.
Jupiter too is a fiery planet Rajas , but again has Sattva characteristics because is the planet of the Guru and inner wisdom. Saturn is a spiritual planet, because it is the planet of Sannyas renouncing the world. Nevertheless, as we all know Saturn represents matter and therefore also Tamas. Rahu has the same energies as Saturn only in a different order. It brings us deep into material life Tamas. However, it only is doing this so we are able to outlive everything that this earth has to offer and then liberate ourselves Sattva.
It may come as a surprise to some people that Mercury turns out to be the most spiritual planet. However, one thing that distinguishes us from animals, is our capacity to think and evaluate ourselves. Mercury as an airy planet can liberate us from this earth. It is not a planet of materiality Tamas and neither does it like hard work and action Rajas.
It thinks about Tamas and Rajas instead of going into it. It is not my intention to give all the answers, but merely to give the reader a system and to represent a way of thinking, which the reader can easily apply himself. After these examples, it will probably not be too hard to meditate about the character of Ketu, Mars and the Moon. In this paragraph I have mentioned the connection of the gunas to the Nakshatras. Out of this have emerged conclusions about the connection of the gunas to the planets.
I am well aware that there are other systems, which give information about the gunas and the planets. However, this system has a thorough theoretical foundation, which cannot be said of every system.
Every Nakshatra represents an energy in which one aim is stressed.
Nakshatras and Their Characteristics
Nakshatra or Constellation is a combination of two words — Naks meaning sky and Shetra meaning region or an area. A Nakshatra is a region or area of the sky. They are divisions of 13 degrees 20 minutes each starting from zero Aries and ending at 30 degree Pisces. Together they comprise of degrees. They are sub divisions of the zodiac signs and are further sub-divided into 4 Padas or quarters each. Each Pada has a span of 3 degrees 20 minutes. Each sign or rashi contains 9 padas.
All you need to know about the 27 nakshatras in astrology. Bearing in mind the degrees of the elliptically structured zodiac, it can be divided into twelve houses with each house being equal to thirty degrees. With further subdivision of the same into twenty seven nakshatras or star constellation, each of the constellations occupies a magnitude of thirteen degrees and twenty minutes. Just as an individual takes birth under different rasis or zodiac signs governing the twelve houses, similarly the celestial presence of the twenty seven ' nakshatras ' or birth star governs our birth. Lunar placement in natal or birth chart determines the birth star governing an individual. If you don't know your birth star, use the nakshatra finder to find out.

Nakshatras or the birth stars are constellations that play a vital role in the Indian Vedic astrology. There are 28 nakshatras in all, but only 27 of them are considered for calculations. The term Nakshatra is made of two Sanskrit words, naksha and tra. Therefore, each nakshatra is a home of the God assigned to the duties of guarding and guiding the cosmic and solar evolution.
Он не знал ни где он находится, ни кто его преследует и мчался, подгоняемый инстинктом самосохранения. Он не чувствовал никакой боли - один лишь страх. Пуля ударила в кафельную плитку азульехо чуть сзади. Осколки посыпались вниз и попали ему в шею.
Сьюзан в ужасе смотрела на экран. Внизу угрожающе мигала команда: ВВЕДИТЕ КЛЮЧ Вглядываясь в пульсирующую надпись, она поняла. Вирус, ключ, кольцо Танкадо, изощренный шантаж… Этот ключ не имеет к алгоритму никакого отношения, это противоядие.
Офицер был поражен этим открытием. - Кольцо? - Он вдруг забеспокоился. Вгляделся в полоску на пальце и пристыжено покраснел. - О Боже, - хмыкнул он, - значит, эта история подтверждается. Беккеру даже сделалось дурно.
Беккер знал лишь, что немец был с рыжеволосой спутницей, а в Испании это само по себе большая редкость. Клушар вспомнил, что ее звали Капля Росы. Беккер скорчил гримасу: что это за имя.
Развяжи. Развяжи, пока не явились агенты безопасности. - Они не придут, - сказала она безучастно. Хейл побледнел.
Это смертельная ловушка. Если даже он выберется на улицу, у него нет оружия. Как он заставит Сьюзан пройти вместе с ним к автомобильной стоянке. Как он поведет машину, если они все же доберутся до. И тут в его памяти зазвучал голос одного из преподавателей Корпуса морской пехоты, подсказавший ему, что делать.
