In the zodiac at 0° in M.esha there is a reddish star” which the astronomers call Arietis. The Indians named it Asvini. The Indians worshipped it in personification of the dawn — more plausibly, morning and evening star. They mentioned it to explain the life’s journey; the entrance to and exit from this material plane — apparently the prana (breath), inhalation and exhalation; and in the physical body its passage through the nose and speech. Every year from this point of the cycle the yearly trek of the sun begins. Asva (The horse) is the symbolic expression of journey. Asvini (from Asva) is the power that sets one in motion.

The mystic ideas of Asvini the ancients. told in many tales in mythology.

It extends .from 13:20 to 26°40′

Symbol: Orifice of the.womb (mouth) lord Mangal. It is possible to have an idea of the nature of Bharavi Nakshatra from the nature of Rahu, Mangal and Yama. To take Rahu first

  1. Rahu gives extravagant enjoyment of material pleasure and is later on the cause of sorrow.
  2. Mangal gives courage, strength, exaltation and hope
  3. Yama purity, cleanliness, justice and integrity. The sense of restraint is also Yama’s: gift; he is; the lord of Dharma a stern disciplinarian, a ruthless expositor of truth and a refuge for kings and law-abiding subjects. We should not always confine his interpretation to his being only the lord of death; he is the great judicature the ultimate dispenser of reward and punishment.

The story of Yama-Nachiketa is a particularly an exposition of the hospitality of Yama, his. sense; of dharma and knowledge of it, his superb honesty and great integrity and other divine virtues. The Nakshatra of which he is the,;devata-(God) is’ also in consequence the ;giver, ;of. enjoyment and. Pleasures, courage and upward thrust of the spirit and on the other hand the giver of whatever is good, pure, truthful and honest.
The etymological meaning of Bharani is “what deserves to be cultivated and preserved” that is dependence, servitors, retainers or anything by which living is earned, for example salary.

In Mesha, next to Asvini, there are three stars in one and are conceived as a triangle without opening. This is called Bharani. The star Bharani represents the character of Agni Rasi Tamo Guna, In a life the destructive forces of Tama Guna and the expressive character of Agni work within and make changes that start from within. It denotes experiences of suffering, suppression, restraint in struggles, strife, contest and such other circumstances as presented by Mangala. The Agni energy provides a great will power, forbearance to withstand it by self-control, discipline. The Devata of Bharani is Yama Dharma Raja (lord of virtues). Truth, duty, morality are the blessings it effects in the life. The effect makes one a saint.

The ideas of Bharani are similar to Rahu. who eclipses or hides and then again it releases. Womb has similar function. By name Bharani (from Bharana, Bharana-posana — feeding and rearing up) it connotes the act of maintaining, bearing in the womb, edibles, load, burden, to hire, wages, etc.
In mythology Yama is personified as the son of Vibasvan (Surya or Ravi) and the lord of our forefathers. The south is the lord of our forefathers — Pittrijana (Pittri — paternal; jana-vehicle). The abode of God is on the north. Devajana {Deva — God; jana — vehicle, path) is on the north.

Krittika Nakshatra; This is the birth star of Chandra. Many constellations gather at the tail end ofKritika Krittika group. It extends from Mesa 26°40′.The residual 10° fall in Vrshabha. The devata is Agni. Lord (Adhipati) is Mangal and Sukra. Agni is the great purifier, the great consumer and the giver of light, heat and brightness. Agni causes the fire of life and the drive. It is also the spark of life. Without fire creation would not exist. Agni is at the base of creation and the continuation of existence. It consumes everything. The fire of digestion in the human system and the external fire of cooking are only different manifestations of the same principle which is Agni.

Agni is the symbol of brightness and brilliance and all weapons with fire-power. And other things of this same category come within the range of Krittika group. The fire is considered as purifier for it burns away all that is sordid, dark and dull, also all that is low and sinful and inauspicious in the world. The dross thus blazed away, only effulgence and light remain. Fire gives the earth its activity and dynamic and revives it after spells of cold that periodically inflict comatose condition on the earth.

It is easy enough to deduce from fire the causal effect of the Krittika group. Mangal is the lord of that part of Krittika which is in Mesa Rasi and Mangal is like a mass of lightning in shining splendour. So the Krittika in Mesha is devastatingly brilliant, the effulgence being closely associated with an incendiary character.

The Krittika of Vrshabha Rasi is brilliant but unlike the Krittika of Mesa, is not incendiary. The lord of Vrshabha Rasi is Sukra and Sukra stands for worship of beauty and for poetry and imagination. He is radiantly white like Snow, the ‘Kunda’ flower and the ‘Utpal’. He is also the encyclopedic expounder of all branches of learning. It follows that the Krittika of Vrshabha Rasi is brilliant but the brilliance does not burn. It is soft and sweet and benign. The Krittika of Mesha Rasi is doubtless brilliant, it has plenty of heat which burns. The Krittika of Vrshabha Rasi has on the contrary a softened radiance, a wave of brightness that does not hurt. In Western Astrology Krittika has been described as an incendiary star.

Devata Agni is the oldest of all gods and used to be worshipped all over the world. Old Romans addressed Him Vesta and worshipped Him without image.

“No image Vesta’s semblance can express
Fire is too subtle to admit of dress”

‘Agni remains hidden in wood, plants and water [terrestrial or aerial] Born in the sky it descends in form of lightning and the Sun and is the source of energy. It is at the root of all creation and expression of speech. In mythology it is ‘Master of the House, Domestic god and head of the clan’. There are many names of Agni, each is used in inviting and worshipping Agni for particular function and occasion.

Krittika, therefore, denotes capability to give a desired change in a form by burning out all the impurities of life or the wrongs and give birth to purity, morality and virtues.

Mythology describes Krittika as the foster mother of Kartik devata who is beautiful in appearance and an able commander in a battle. He is still worshipped in South India. The ideas of Krittika are related to the ideas of a commander, fighter, a foster mother, nurse or an adopted child;. Since the root power of every action is Agni, either action of the senses, or digestion, or the existence of life, it is first worshipped in all Pujas (divine service). For different actions (Karmas) the same Agni is worshipped by different names. Agni is conceived in three planes physical, mental and spiritual. Krittika in Mesa (Tamo Guna) represents physical creative force. Krittika in Vrshabha (Raja Guna) represents the function of Agni (creative faculty) in mental plane.

Krittika by name connotes Kirti — a great achievement, monumental deeds that are famous; Kartan — to cut, divide, to trim; also its instrument, viz., sword, knife, razor, etc.

In Krittika the portion that is in Mesa has ideas of burning sensations or feelings. It may be the fire of the stomach, body or mind. This is due to the characteristic of Mesa and Mangala. But Krittika in Vrshabha speaks for luster and glow of power, full of warmth and feelings. This is due to ideas of Vrshabha and Sukra.

A commander, protector.

Fame, famous, monumental deeds.
Fire, flame, inflammable, glow, appetite, digesting, cooking, bile, food.

Rohini Nakshatra: The word is derived from “Rohan” which means ‘to rise’ or ‘to bring intoRohini existence’. It extends in the Vrsa Rasi from 10° degree to 23°-20´. The lord of it is Sukra, the symbol a Cart drawn by Cows. The ‘Devata’ is Brahma, the prime creator of all things living, from the meanest insect to Man, the beauty of the weird, the paragon of animals. Rohini-group therefore encompasses everything that comes within the range of creation – beasts, birds, animals, etc. It would also connote the process of growing, be getting, birth, production, etc. in brief production, birth and creation. Rising means process of ascending, that is to say the creative evolution, the cultivation and the improvement. Mythology describes ‘Rohini’ the wife of Chandra. Of all the 27 Stars – all wives of Chandra – Rohini is said to have been fond of fine dress, cosmetics and décor and was the most beloved of Chandra. The Rohini (group) is, in the line with this, considered to be the cause of a taste for fine dress, perfume, and other articles of toilet. Creation continues to exist mainly on the basis of food; and Rohini is supposed to be the cause of food. The direct and immediate cause of food is Agni and Brahma the remote cause. From this point of view the God who gives food, that is Agni, is the spiritual principle of Rohini (group) Nakshatra and because, Brahma the remote cause of food is also the devata of Rohini; the range of influences of this group runs over the whole gamut of the visible and invisible animal world.

Rohini is a bright little star in Vrsa – Prthvi Rasi, Raja Guna – the earthly desire or Kamana. Kamana rises from Kama and this being in Prithvi Rasi shows tendency towards material enjoyments, in extreme cases it shows lust or passions. Kama is an attribute of Kamini (woman). In mythology, Rohini is the most favourite star of Candra personified. Rohini implies both Arohana (ascending) and Abarohana (descending). They are the attributes of mind, astrologically, Chandra.

Devata Brahma – the creator, often referred to as Prajapati – lord of all creatures. Agni (fire or energy) is the instrument of Brahma. It is at the root of Vaak (speech) and is related to Saraswati (Goddess of Knowledge). The colour of Agni is red. So Rohini refers to red, blood or saffron colour. Gandha is the Guna of Prthvi therefore, in Rohini it is perfume, fragrant.

The other name of Rohini is Suravi – the celestial cow; it has ability to give whatever is wanted from it.

Rohini resembles Saraswati. In mythology, Brahma being temporarily sensual chased Saraswati and the latter took the form of a deer and ran to avoid indecency. The story aims to say that Rohini has tendency towards sensuality.

Mrigasira Nakshatra: Mrigasira Nakshatra extends from after 23°-20´ in Vrisha Rasi up to 6°-40Mrigashira´in Mithuna. Presiding deity Chandra. Symbol – Antelope or Deer. The word ‘Mriga’ represents a deer, forests, gardens, a search, a seeking to find, to roam about in forests and a hunter, to seek to blaze the trail, a guide and preceptor. An erotic affair, beauty of the countenance with particular emphasis on the radiant lustre of the face, because of the Moon. To seek as the primary characteristic of the star, to discover hidden treasures after the churning of the Sea, the ‘Samudra Manthan’ of the Hindu Mythology, the mother, motherly conduct that is to say maternal instincts, self-sacrifice without hope of requital, etc.

Chandra is the lord of the mind, so all mental attitude, good or bad, sympathies and antipathies, patience and impatience, the fleetingness and placidity, imagination, the gift of poetry, purity, sweetness and light, physical and mental aspects, all these come within this star and when things of sweetness and light of physic as also of the mind, both derivatives from the moon, the horoscope of Rabindra Nath comes to mind. His Janma lagna was Mina with Chandra there and Vrhaspati was in Karkata rasi. Because of this yoga Rabindra Nath had something like physical translucence which was object of admiration all the world over, wherever people met. Also, at the same time his poetry enthralled the whole world.

The Moon is a sub-planet round the earth and that is why the influence of the Moon on all that happens in the earth is so paramount. And again that is why the influence of the Moon on both the body and mind is simultaneously so very great. Sukra and Chandra both are female grahas (Planets) with difference that while the Moon is the Lord of motherhood, maternal instincts and all that, Sukra is the lord of feminine beauty, the structure of feminine form, the physical excellence of women and all that. In the former there is elegance and dignity of the feminine while in the latter, the physical beauty and the lure of feminine form which leads a male captive dominates. The moon is the lord of marine products and of medicines; that it was from the sea that the moon rose. And it is to the moon that the influences and causalities have to be traced.

Orion is a brilliant constellation and always delights the eyes of all beholders. It is beautiful beyond description. There are many folklore and mythology relating to this star. Its appearance in the sky was dreaded by the sailors particularly as it presaged stormy weather.

Mrigasira (Mrga — deer to search for; Sira — the head) means searching mind, research, etc. Mrigasira is partly in Vrisha and partly in Mithuna. In Vrsa it is related to material or worldly things. It represents the ideas of tracing out, a track, road, journey, etc. In Mithuna it is related to attribute Vaaiyu (air). The ideas in it are seeking for beauty, pleasures, motherly feelings, etc. Its Devata being Chandra it conveys the ideas of searching for beautiful faces, visit or request a girl in marriage. It also represents motherly attributes of selfless gifts.

Mrgasira represents hunt, pursue, investigate, examine, etc. No wonder that Mrigasira may denote greatest intellect, researchers, poets or beautiful looking persons. Both Shukra and Chandra have common features in them. In Vrisha (Sukra) it will show more inclination towards physical beauty and for dress. Predominance of Chandra (Devata of Mrigasira) will show tendency towards feminine qualities and tenderness.

Arudra Nakshatra : In Mithuna from after 6°-40´ to 20°. The presiding deity is Rudra, the wielderarudara1 of the trident. The symbol is a tear-drop. The lord of Arudra is Budha / Rahu, when the Sun enters Arudra the earth is said to be starting its menstrual course that is “Ambobachi”. Arudra means wet or surcharged with water, that is fat. Because the earth is running her menstrual course there are teardrops falling one after another. From Rudra comes all suffering, persecutions and oppressions, anger, ferocity of countenance or hideousness of noise. Rudra is another name of Shiva, the “five-faced” [Panchaanana]. In knowledge, asceticism, renunciation, as also in enjoyment, he is the supreme consummation of all desires. He is the blue-throated one, the wielder of the most tremendous powers, what could not be attempted, far less achieved by other Gods, when the churned Ocean at the time of ‘Samudra Manthan’ exhaled poison Siva achieved quite simply by holding the poison in his throat [turning it blue]. On one side he is the symbol of the most perfect placidity and serenity, on the other hand he is the symbol of all that is terrible. He holds the great serpent on his head and on his forehead crescent Moon with his sweet-soft light. He is at the same time the most peaceful and also the most terrible. And in all these are to be traced the intrinsic characteristics of Arudra. On the surface of it Arudra stands for suffering, hardness, cruelty, murder, prison, theft, adultery, etc. The root characteristic is oppression – in order to purify. All male kidney trouble and connected urethral disease comes within the jurisdiction of Arudra; so also uterine diseases of the female. The skull of Kalapurush and hair on it.

The ruddy Betelgues is an interesting star and is known as the ‘Martial Star’. Arudra literally means wet, damp, etc. In human character it is the tenderness, feelings, warmth, etc. The symbol refers to the ideas of oppression, exceedingly tormenting, etc. Devata Rudra is Siva in rodan (crying) and garjan (howling). But this aspect, though it more emphasised is only universe of his role as helper, redresser of wrongs, magical career, ‘healer of healers’. Rudra is also often associated with Agni or identified with Agni as the terrifying form of fire. His dwelling place is in the mountains and forest, his domain is over the animals, wild or domesticated.

When Ravi comes here monsoon begins. When Ravi enters Ardra the Hindus observe ‘Ambubaaci’ for three days and during these three days they do not till the earth or dig or excavate as a token of mother earth having her period during the time and after the period she resumes production.

In Ardra the conception of Rudra is associated with a hunter and a drop of water according to mythology.

Punarvasu Nakshatra : Spread from 20° degree Mithune upto 3° 20´ Karkata. Presiding deityPunarvasu ‘Aditi’, the Lord is Budha and Chandra. Symbol—Quiver (receptacle for arrows ).

The word Punarvasu is derived from Puna+Vasu, which means return, renewal, restoration or repetition. The 12 Adityas were born of Kasyapa in the womb of Aditi. The 12 Vasus are Indra. Vishnu, Vaga, Twasta, Barun, Aryama, Pusa, Mitra, Agni, Parjyanya, Vivaswan and Dinakar. The mother Aditi of whom the Gods are born is the repository of everything good—truth, generosity, magnanimity, purity, aristocracy, beauty and renownt. It follows that this star is the cause for these virtues. To start afresh after having once broken off, to start a new life, to come back from a distant land—all these are signified by Punarvasu. It stands for freedom from restriction and limitation, and boundless space. The Gods, the children of Aditi, are basically and essentially are different from children of Diti, who are demons. The demons never had a taste of divine nectar and therefore miss the knowledge of fundamentals, fundamentals of creation and mystery. They were engrossed with or deeply emerged in enjoyment of the externals, the materialistic aspect of the universe. Gold and sex were the two immediate pursuits, which made them extroverts. The Gods, however, could rip into the deeper texture of things, they had tasted the divine nectar and, become partners in supreme divine bliss and Punarvasu represents all these.

Punah means repeat, again and again; Basanti means habitation. Punarbasati, therefore, means remaking or remodelling of dwellings, Punarbasati or Punarvasu are same in meaning. It denotes the ideas of abode, residence, back to home, sojourn, recurrence, commencement, to shine or grow bright again, to enter into life again, renewal of
riches, etc.

Aditi (from Daa — to divide) means not divisible. It means one not tied; free or freedom; unbrokenness or entirety; external expanse, etc. It does not give any idea of
fixation of any limit or duration. It is infinitude.

In mythology Aditi is the mother of 12 Adityas — Indra, Vishnu, Bhaga, Tvastaa, Baruna, Aryamaa, Pushyaa, Mitra, Paryanya. Vibaswaan, and Dibaakara. The name Aditi is also associated with Ashta-Basu — the eight virtues of man. It aims to say that Aditi has the divine power and virtues attached to the ideas of Adityas and Basus. Aditi is also referred as the mother of 7 creative forces as well as death. Aditi is again depicted as the wife of Kasyapa (father of Surya) and some mentioned her as the wife of Vishnu — who sustains creation. However, Aditi is that force which is responsible for creation and death on the external plane of infinitude, the Akasa.

At Punarvasu Ravi changes its course from Devajaana to Pittrijaana — the world of experience. So, ideas of experience is denoted by Punarvasu.

Ideas: Abode, residence, habitat.

Everything of the very best comes within the scope of this Star. Enjoyment of wealth and prosperity follows from it.

Vrihaspati is described as the great teacher of all creation from amoebae to the Gods and is the source of all knowledge and wisdom. The mystery of creation is no mystery to him. He is the eloquent preceptor, the wise minister, pontifex, head of all religious ceremonies. He takes pleasure in all worshipful ritual. And that is why the Pushya is composed of these virtues. It has been described as blossoming and flourishing. It is the mouth of Orien.

Symbol — Udder of a cow. Devataa — Brhaspati. Pushya is derived from Pushti which means nourishment. The nourishment may be related to either physical fitness or material wealth or knowledge.

Aslesha Nakshatra: Spread from 16°-40′ to 30° Karkata. Chandra is the lord. It is the birth star ofAshlesha Ketu. Symbol—coiled up snake. It is the nature of a snake to hide himself, to encircle and entwine, to creep on the chest, to embrace, and to enjoy or unite surreptitiously. All this is an attribute of Aslesha also. The cunningness of the serpent, its devious nature, the burning sensation of poison and pain along with all consequences that poison connotes are to be read in the constitution of Aslesha. The virtues and vices of the serpent are all in it. The Moon in Aslesha sicklied over with various faults in great intensity. Whoever would have his or her Karmapathi ( Lord of the 10th house ) or bhagyapathi (Lord of the 9th .house) in this star would run the risk of having all his or her principal acts in life handicapped, jeopardised or spoiled by many kinds of danger and obstruction. If the lagna is in this star, the native would possibly be of wily disposition. Such people would like to work in secret and their words would carry the sting of poison.

Devanaagari: Aslesha. Symbol — Coiled snake. Devataa — Ahi (snake). The force of Aslesha can be understood by its name Naga. Naga and Ahi are same. In Naga, ‘ga’ stands for gati or gamana or go in English. ‘a-ga’ means that which has no go. ‘Na-a-ga’ or Naga means to say that it can go where one cannot go. Indeed, snakes possess such power. The creature can remain coiled in such small holes or cracks where it seems impossible for the creature to go. Mind (Candra is the symbolical expression of mind and the ruling Graha of Karkata) has similar capabilities. It has power to secretly travel or penetrate into a place where ordinarily it is impossible to go. Such power is depicted by the name Candra-Ketu — another name of Siva — the lord of wisdom. Candra-Ketu is, therefore, represented by the symbol of Siva in yoga with Candra (as Candra or moon appears in Krshnaacaturdashii, XIV phase in the period of New Moon) on his forehead and a snake coiling round his neck. The symbolical idea of such Candra means to say that total extinction of mind is not possible, a part of the mind and the senses remain to function ‘yoga’ (union or communion) while the rest is under control or in Samadhi. The idea of Aslesha is thus associated with the ideas of Ketu. In mythology the fight between Ahivrtta and Indra is interpreted as the fight between the senses and the nervous system.

The idea of the snake is associated with hiding, coiling fear, nervousness (or nerves). It can hurt, wound, pain with extreme consequences. It likes to work secretly. It creates various hindrances in worldly activities.

Ideas: Connection, junction, union, sexual union, intimate, contact, embracing, clasping, entwining, joining the limbs closely.
To adhere, to attach to, to cling to, to stick on, to twist, to surround, to encircle.
Creeping, crawling, stealing along, to slip into, move cautiously, go tortuously.
Snake, poison, torment, burning, pain.
Portion of the human body — Nails, joints.

Magha Nakshatra : Spread from 0° to 13°-20′ Simha. Ravi is the lord, the deity ‘Pitrigan’. Symbol—MaghaThe royal Court with a royal throne. Attributes—The virtues and vices of the father’s family, wealth, glory, beauty, strength and prowess, lustre and effulgence, superior qualities, sharpness of intellect nobility, prestige, replenishment, and increase, wisdom, brilliance, capacity and willingness to donate, ancestors on the paternal side—all these arc effected by Magha. In no star the position of Ravi is so magnificent and dignified. Ravi in “Aswini” is brilliant no doubt but the brilliancy of incendiary character. It burns everything about it. The Sun is then a terrible ball of fire. But in Magha Ravi is like an emperor, confident and self-assured. If Happy and pleased he is in a mood to make any benediction or gift.

When Ravi is in Magha Sani gets alarmed and that is natural. For Sani is by character, of a mean disposition, the nature of slave, no wonder that mean and lowly Sani cannot brook the beaty and the dignity of the position of Ravi in Magha. That is why Sani is ‘Nicha’ and anti-meridional in Aswini and meanness and willyness of Sani so much increases. If Sani is in the lord of 9th & 10th houses and is placed in the 4th house and^ associated with Magha he acts adversely the effects of the 4th & 10th houses. Magha is the causes of brightness and light. Therefore old and gloomy planets cannot stand it. Magha stands for noble impulses and incentives, the gift of Magha must always be a noble one. Magha has been described as glorious one. Anthropooorphically it is the nose of Kalpurush.

Maghaa is derived from Maghaban (cloud; Megha; Devataa — Indra). The cloud presents a grave and fearful look. It is the store-house of electricity, the great energy of fires, the terrible thunders are hidden in it. Its sudden lightning anger wherever falls there is seldom any protection against it. It roars and shakes the very bones. But it has in it the most lovable and nourishing properties of rains. It sheds rains freely for the benefit of the earth and everyone on the earth. It is a selfless gift — it does not want anything in return. So, Maghaa Stands for suva-karma — a good action particularly for selfless gift for the welfare of others.

Devataa Indra is the lord of human senses (Indriyas) the medium between self and the world beyond self. The energy or the fire of Maghaa by representation in a living form effects desire. Desire is the creative effort of mind and that desire is at the bottom of all other functions. It is Vaasanaa — the first impulse that is in the living substance or living soul.
