Abhijit Nakshatra is one among the birth stars (Nakshatram) as per Hindu astrology but is not counted among the 27 regular Nakshatras. This is a special Nakshatra which starts from the last quarter of Uttarashada (Uttradam) Nakshatra and it extends up to 1/15th part of Shravan (Thiruvovam) Nakshatra.
The Nakshatra is named after Abhijita, the daughter of Daksha Prajapati.
The birth star is supposed to be always near the constellation Rohini.
Abhijit Nakshatra is given importance by many Hindu communities. Birth taking place on Abhijit Nakshatra is considered highly auspicious.
