🌸🌺Jai Shri Krishna Astro-lovers..!!
Lets understand Basic Astrology through Placement of the heavenly bodies (Grahas & Nakshtras).
Out of the many luminous bodies sighted in the skies some are stars, yet some are Grahas. Those, that have no movements, are the Nakshatras (asterisms).
These Grahas, that move through the Nakshatras (or stellar mansions) in the rashi chakra. The rashi-chakra ‘zodiac’ comprises of 27 Nakshatras begin from Ashvini. The same area is divided in 12 parts equal to 12 Rashi commencing from Mesh. The names of the Grahas begin from Sun-Surya.
The Rashi rising is known, as Lagna (Ascendant) . Based on Lagn and the Grahas, joining and departing from each other, the natives good and bad effects are deducted.
The names of the 27 Nakshatras are Ashvini, Bharani, Krittika, Rohini, Mrigasira, Ardra, Punarvasu, Pushya, Aslesha, Magha, Purvaphalguni,Uttaraphalguni, Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Vishaka, Anuradha, Jyeshtha, Mula, Purvashadh,Uttarashadh, Shravana, Dhanishtha, Satabhisha, Purvabhadra, Uttarabhadra, Revati.
Lagna (Ascendant) is a very important point in the horoscope. It is the Rashi, that rises in the East, on the latitude of birth. The apparent rising of a Rashi is due to the rotation of the earth on its own axis at a rate of motion, causing every degree of the zodiac seemingly ascend on the eastern horizon.
Approximately, two hours are required for a Rashi to pass via the horizon, thereby every degree taking four minutes to ascend. This duration, however, is actually dependent on the concerned latitude…To be continued….🌸🌺
