I often find in my interaction with others that there is a vast misunderstanding of the Power of Nakshatras! Many only attempt to use them in a predictive manner to further define the details of specific concrete predictions. Whilst they excel at doing this, the Mystery of the Nakshatra is far more vast than most people dare to explore!
The Nakshatras are considered the wives of the Moon. Mythologically, it is the consort of a deity that carries the shakti, or power of the deity! The Moon is responsible for the rise and fall of the tides! In a similar fashion it is responsible for the rise and calming of the tides which flow within the modulations of our sensory mind. The Nakshatras carry out this pull on our psyche to cause us to work through the karmic drama we are each involved in. In short, the Moon relates to our experience of growing our Consciousness. The Nakshatras convey this power!
