Stars behind the Zodiac: The Hidden Lunar Signs of the Nakshatras

Stars behind the Zodiac: The Hidden Lunar Signs of the Nakshatras

  • Product Details

  • Additional Information

  • Hidden, behind the scenes of the 12 signs of the Zodiac are 27 signs called the Nakshatras. While the Zodiac is based on the yearly cycle of the sun, the Nakshatras are based on the monthly rhythm of the moon. Nakshatras carry key information about life patterns and themes that are rich in Vedic symbolism. Reviewing the meaning of the ever-changing influence of the moon in Vedic Astrology, we will walk lightly through some of the key mythology of Chandra and his 27 wives, complete with Power Point illustrations. 

    People new to Vedic Astrology are often confused by the seeming complexity of the mathematics and geometry involved. I will also present images to illustrate how the 27 Nakshatras and their padas overlay and interact with the 12 rasis.

    The Nakshatras are a foundational element of Vedic astrology and are at the core of many predictive techniques and calculations. I will briefly touch on how the Nakshatras relate to some of these, including navamsha and the location and meaning of gandanta nakshatra. To conclude we will walk through a few example charts where Nakshatras shine in their ability to give predictive insight.
