Nakshatra - Birth Star

Nakshatras are the twenty seven constellations or “lunar asterisms” that exist within and throughout the twelve major constellations Aries to Pisces. They are known to Western astronomical science by their Greek names. Each nakshatra occupies 13º20’ of the 360º circle of constellations, 13º20’ x 27 = 360º. Furthermore, each nakshatra is divided into quarters or padas. Each pada = 3º20’; so 3º20’ x 4 = 13º20’; 4 padas x 27 nakshatras = 108 padas in 360º.

The Moon gives different result, in each of the 27 nakshatras and in each pada or quarter of each nakshatra. Table below gives each nakshatra’s Sanskrit name as in used by Hindu lunar astrology, along with Greek astronomical name.
