Nakshatras, Padas and Rashis

with 69 comments

In measuring angles,

60 seconds = 1 minute
60 minutes = 1 degree

The entire zodiac comprises of 360 degrees.

There are 27 Nakshatras (stars or constellations) according to our tradition occupying the 360 degrees of the zodiac. This means that each Nakshatra gets 13 degrees and 20 minutes in the zodiac. Further, each Nakshatra is divided into 4 padas (quarters). Hence each pada occupies 3 degrees and 20 minutes.

One sign in the zodiac occupies 30 degrees. Therefore, each zodiac has 9 padas corresponding to the Nakshatras.

We can now place the Nakshatras in the various signs based on the above rules.
