Birth Star Puja
The influence of Stars, the Vedic Nakshatra and Star-Lords is an important factor to be considered when studying the influences in a person’s life. There is an entire branch of Astrology called Stellar Astrology dedicated to study of stars. ‘Nakshatra’ in Vedic Astrology is a very important criterion when it comes to matching horoscopes and understanding the mental framework of a person. The zodiac is subdivided into 27 Asterisms or Nakshatras. Each asterism thus measures 360/27 degrees i.e 13 degrees and 20 minutes. The birthstar or nakshatra means the zone of star in which Moon is posited at the time of birth. All the 27 stellar zones are governed by all the nine planets in a particular sequence starting from Aswathi (Aswini), each star is governed by planets Ketu, Venus, Sun, Moon, Mars, Rahu, Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury. The next nine set of stars are governed by planets in the same order, governing repeating thrice for each planet. Expert Astrologers agree that star-lords are also equally important as the sign lords. In fact predictions without considerations of star lords of each planet may lack exactness and may even go wrong.
According to the Vedas, the Vedic Nakshatras represent the abodes into which the fruits of our labor, our karmas are transferred and stored. Our ancients therefore knew clearly and categorically that the Nakshatra of the native has a great influence on the mental make up of the individual and therefore reflects the destiny of the individual. One of the famous lines in the Purusha Suktha ‘Chandrama Manaso Jatah’ clearly indicates that the Moon is born out of the mind of the Kalapurusha, the Supreme God. Moon represents the Mind in Vedic as well as Western Astrological systems. Appeasing the Nakshatra Devatha, thus is paramount in conditioning the mental makeup of a native and thereby contributing to his positive Karma.
