3.6 Nakshtra Transit

3.6.1 It is a corollary of the above system. Just as we analyze transit of planets in different houses from natal Moon sign, we can also analyze the transit from Nakshtra occupied by the natal Moon i.e. natal star or birth Nakshtra or Janam Tara. A Nakshtra is called asterism, constellation or lunar mansion. A Nakshtra occupies comparatively a much smaller arc in extent (only 44.44% of a zodiacal sign) and hence are expected to give better results. The Nakshtra occupied by the Moon at birth is called Janam Tara, the 10th from it is called Anujanam Tara and the 19th is called Trijanam Tara. All these three Nakshtra are ruled by the same planet. The 2nd from any of these three Nakshtra is called Sampat Tara, the 3rd is called Vipat Tara, the 4th is called Kshema Tara, the 5th is called Pratyari Tara, the 6th is called Sadhak Tara, the 7th Nidhan/ Vadha Tara, the 8th Mitra Tara and the 9th Nakshtra is called Param Mitra Tara. Transit over 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th and 9th Nakshtra normally gives good results while transit over 3rd, 5th and 7th Nakshtra gives bad results and transit over Janam Nakshtra gives neutral results. However the results during the first triad i.e. 1st to 9th Nakshtra give more pronounced results and the results in 2nd triad i.e. 10th to 19th gives less pointed results and the results in 3rd trials are only moderate. For each planet’s the benefic Nakshtra/ star counted from birth Nakshtra are given below:

 Thus for the native of Chart No. 2 (Dr. Mrs. Singhal), a planet through Nakshtra of Ketu (Sampat), Sun (Kshem), Mars (Sadhak), Jupiter (Mitra) and Saturn (Param Mitra) will generally give good results; transit through Nakshtra of Venus (Vipat), Moon (Pratyari), and Rahu (Nidhan) will give bad results; while transit through Nakshtra of Mercury (Janamtara) will be neutral.
