    • Krithika to Vishaka – Devayana Nakshatra & Anuradha to Bharani – Pitra Yana Nakshatras.
    • Agni 2 Heads (Heavens & Earth), 3 Legs (3 Lokas), Spoon, Agni rides on Female Goat.
    • Lord Krishna wear feather of peacock, to protect from the snakes.
    • Agni can weld things & melt things. Soft & Sharpness of Nakshatra.

    Story of Agni & Swaha Devi – Saptha Rishis

    Agni infatuated by Wives of Saptharishi Wives. Rejected by all of them. Swaha is a daughter of Daksha, and by many accounts, the wife of Agni, the God of fire. Agni was initially reluctant to marry her, but in the end was persuaded to do so. She obtained the boon that oblations will be poured into fire by taking her name.

    In some traditions, Skanda, the commander of the Devas is said to be their son, when she tricked Agni into having conjugal relationship with her, by taking the form of the wives of the SaptaRishis (except Arundhati), whom Agni desired. ‘Birth of Karthikeya’.

    Story of Karthikeya & Tarakasura

    Skanda is the son of Shiva and Parvati. He is also considered by some to be the son of Agni and the Krittikas (pleiades), or of Agni and Swaha. An Asura named Taraka had obtained a boon that he could not be slain by anyone except a seven year old child. Armed by this boon, he defeated all the celestials. Only a child born to Shiva could kill him.

    However, Shiva had become a recluse after the death of his wife Sati. With the help of Kama, the Gods ensured that he married Parvati, a re-incarnation of his wife Sati. Skanda was born of this union. The story of his birth is told here.Once Skanda reached the age of seven, he led the Deva army against Taraka and Surapadma and slew them both.

    His vehicle is a peacock and his weapon is a spear. He has two wives, Valli, and Deivanai, the daughter of Indra. His other names are Kartikeya, Kumara, Subrahmanya, Shanmuka and Guha.

    Kandhava Dahanam at Maha Bharath.

    The Brahmana then revealed himself to be Agni. He said, “It is my nature to burn. I have been longing to burn this Khandava forest, which has been apportioned to me by food. However, Indra’s friend Takshaka, the king of snakes resides there with his friends.

    The lives of all in that forest is forfeit to me, but out of affection for his friend, Indra is preventing me from consuming this forest. Whenever I begin to burn it, he orders his thunder clouds to cause pouring rain, dousing my flames. This hunger has started consuming my very self, I cannot bear it any longer. I ask you to protect me while I burn the Khandava forest.

    The real reason why Agni wants to burn this forest is to cure his stomach ailment. The story of how he got sick is narrated here.

    Arjuna said, “Since I have promised to help you, so I shall protect you. You do not need to worry about anyone as long as I and Madhava (Krishna) are on your side. We possess knowledge of many divine Astras that can prevent the rain from reaching the forest. But, if we have to contend with the might of Indra, I would need a bow that can withstand the speed at which I shall be dispatching the arrows. I will also need a suitable chariot, which will move as swift as my thoughts. Krishna shall also need suitable weapons to assist you. If these things can be arranged, there will be no problem.

    Case Studies

    In the tredition of astrology we read horoscope from the ascendant and moon. Moon is very important planet in the horoscope because its emotion, We can say without emotion there is no meaning life. That’s the main reason vimsottari dashsa system always based on moon star (birth star).

    My intention to make case studies based nakshatra key points, when focual planets (ascendant, ascendant lord, moon, sun occuied star lord) must occupie specific star based on that star trades, life events will takes place as per the mythology of nakshatras. (not exactly near to the situation)

    For example krittika star if influances in positive way by yoga karaka combinations, connection with dasha he might be doctor, gynecologist, researcher, pandit, priest, cooking etc. If its start giving negative ways he might face digestion issues, adulterous nature, illicit affairs, abandoned children etc.

    Forur navamshas connected to each star. it would be sagittarius, capricorn, aquarius, pisces, first sagittarius connected to knowledge, strategy, planning, medical etc, second navamsha of capricorn connected to government servent, management, fitness trainer, barber etc. because capricorn ruled by saturn (combination of venus, sun, saturn).

    Navamshas of aquarius will be connected to inventions, research, technology, management, fashion, public communications etc, pisces can be connected to education, teaching, training, consulting, counseling, water related business, connected to temples etc.

    Parihara Temples

    Before doing any parihar or remedy you need to understand what it is exactly. Unless it will not be usefula anymore. Primaraliy about God, Karma (Good/ Bad), Life path, will remedies really resolve your problem ?

    Every human have specific metrial purposes that’s the reason they depend on super natural energies when things can’t be resolve by theme self. It would children, marriage, health, career, litigrations, well being etc.

    As per the hindu culture for every nakshatra there is specific temple is there. When planets specifically got afflicated on specific star based that also astrologers generally suggests it.

    Sri Kathra Sundareswarar Temple located at Mannampandal, Tamil Nadu. The main god of this temple is Lord Shiva (Kathra Sundareswarar) and the Goddess is known as Tungabalasthanambikai. Krittika starrers praying here for relief of planetary doshas, women awaiting marriage, couples seeking child boon, those facing property disputes and unity in family pray here for wishful results.

    Past Life analysis

    When planets are seriouly afflicated, When noting works really then they go for past life analysis or past karmic deeds understand to rectify to proceed smoothly in current life.

    Which is generally not that much easy to identify. But few of nadi astrology books offering bit of contnet. But need to test & practice those stories on people.

    Using D12 – Dwadashamsha (purva karma) is one of the varga chart is also helpful to read it. D9 – Navamsha tells about purva punya at D1 – Janam Kundali 6 house tells about past karma.
