The Nakshatras or the constellations and the Rashi form the most important element of the Hindu Astrology. Each one of us is born under one of 27 nakshatras. This is also known as janma nakshatra or birth nakshatra. Nakshatra are also referred as Birth star.
Since a circle of Zodiac covers 360 degrees, these 27 nakshatrams cover 360 degrees in space. So the space of the Zodiac occupied by one nakshatram is 360 divided by 27 Nakshatra which is equal to 13 degrees and 20 minutes for each Nakshatra.
The Rashi is the sign in which Moon was placed at your birth time. It’s also called the Moonsign. The Moonsign is one of the most important points in Vedic Astrology.
