Hindu astrology has a unique system of prediction that is based on the position of the moon in a given Nakshatra (constellation). Just as the units used for measuring the distance is miles or kilometers in the same way the space (Akash Mandal) is measured in terms of Nakshatras (group of stars). There are twenty-seven Nakshatras in all. Each one of them covers 13 degrees and 20 minutes of the zodiac. Each Nakshatra is the head of a particular group of stars. A forecast based on the transit/ correlation/ inter – relation of planets in relation to the Nakshatras are more accurate than the results predicted on the basis of any other system.
The concept of Nakshatra is exclusive only to Vedic astrology, and is known to give much more accurate results. Nakshatras are the backbone of astrology and were taken into account even before Sign system was considered. Nakshatras are considered throughout the astrological analysis.

The zodiac is divided into 27 Nakshatra zones. Therefore, while navigating across the zodiac, the Moon has to pass through one of the Nakshatras. When you were born, the Nakshatra in which the Moon was situated at that time is called your “Janma Nakshatra” (Birth star). Accurate predictions can be made after ascertaining your Janma Nakshatra. You can exploit opportunities through proper interpretation of the Nakshatra. Similarly, you can ward off the negatives if you take corrective measures. Nakshatras are also associated with colors, symbols, deities; gemstones etc. Now know your Nakshatra and its characteristics…
