Nakshatra Reading

One without eyes is a blind man. While objects, which are near at hand, can be identified by touch, those at a distance can only be seen by the eyes. Just as the human eyes are useful in identifying objects far and near, the Nakshatra is useful in seeing the disposition of planets and stars in time; many years ago or hereafter in the future. Since touch cannot identify colour, eyes are necessary to distinguish these. Likewise, even if a planet is sighted today, we would not know its effects based on its location and how it affects us. Nakshatra alone can throw light on the subject. In the Vedic or Hindu system of astrology, the Nakshatras play a major role in the art of prediction. In fact, the mysterious and ancient story leaves are based on the Nakshatras. Vedic astrology collects its root in a more ancient Lunar zodiac that reflects an earlier stage of human culture and intuition. This Nakshatras system remains the pillar on which it is based and serves to uphold its many insights and great predictive power. It aims to understand both the origins of the zodiac and our most primal connection to the heavens.
