Complete list of 27 Nakshatra (Birth Star) and their gods in Vedic Astrology

Constellations and their gods in Vedic Astrology

According to Vedic Astrology, Nakshatra refers to the stars/constellations. The 360⁰ zodiac system is divided into 12 zodiac signs. A Nakshatra is also called a lunar mansion or constellation. Its reference is found in the ancient Vedic scriptures. As per the Hindu mythology, all the twenty-seven Nakshatras are the daughters of King Daksha and the Moon is married to all of them and the Moon spends approximately one day each in one constellation, and thus lunar month is of approximately 27 days equal to the numbers of Nakshatras. There is a total of 27 Nakshatras in astrology, and hence the value of each star is 13⁰ 20’. In ancient times, Nakshatras are considered a means of worshipping the divine. These 27 constellations are based on the movement of the Moon, which travels approximately 27.3 days around its orbit. Hence, the birth star of an individual is calculated based on the position of the Moon in any of these stars. The entire list of Nakshatras finds its place in Yajur and Atharva Vedas.
