Rakshasa Nakshatras In Hindu Astrology

Nakshatras or birth stars are divided into three Gunas or temperaments in Hindu astrology. The three types of Nakshatras are Deva nakshatras, Manushya nakshatras and Rakshasa nakshatras. Of the 27 nakshatras, the following nine nakshatras are Rakshasa nakshatras

  1. Krittika (Karthigai or Kartika)
  2. Ashlesha (Ayilyam)
  3. Magha (Makam)
  4. Chitra (Chithira or Chithirai)
  5. Vishakha (Vishakam)
  6. Jyeshta (Kettai or Triketta)
  7. Mula (Moolam)
  8. Dhanishta (Sravishta or Avittam)
  9. Shatabhisha (Sadayam or Chathayam)

People born in these nakshatras are dominant and self-willed, with a potential for violence.

Deva nakshatras represents spiritual, charitable and good nature. Manushya nakshatras represent worldly qualities both positive and negative.

A woman born in manushya or deva nakshatra can marry a man born in rakshasa nakshatra. The woman’s nakshatra should always be elevated than that of the man’s. A woman born in rakshasa nakshatra can marry only a man born in rakshasa nakshatra.
