A persons star (janma nakshatra) is denoted by the star in which the Moon is placed in the horoscope of that person. In other words, the star which the Moon is transiting at the time of birth of a person, is janma star. In vedic astrology, a persons janma nakshatra is very important, as Moon denotes the mind. On Chandrashtama days, a persons mind is not in a balanced state to take correct decisions. Decisions taken on these days are likely to go wrong. Hence, Chandrashtama days are considered inauspicious to do anything important.

Moon, the nearest cosmic neighbour to the earth exerts her influence on many matters of our existence. We are all well aware of the fact that even the mighty ocean soars up with high tides due to its attraction. Moon not only acts upon the deep waters of the ocean but also on the deepest recesses of our mind. The Moon exerts a benefic or malefic influence on individuals corresponding to her natal position. Of the malefic influences attributed to the transit of Moon, there is none too strong as the Chandrashtama, i.e., the period that comes every month when Moon in its transit crosses the eighth sign from its natal position. This will be for an average period of two and quarter days in every lunar month.

Chandrashtama--
Moon, the nearest cosmic neighbour to the earth exerts her influence on many matters of our existence.

This will be for an average period of 2-1/4 days in every lunar month. Let us study the phenomenon critically here.
The general effects when Moon transits the 8th sign from her natal position are misery, ill-health, depressive tendencies, and fear from unexpected sources. Astrological classics recommend the performance of propitiatory rites to reduce ...more
