The “Extra” Nakshatra: Abhijit

krishnaDuring the ancient Vedic period there was a 28th Nakshatra called Abhijit, which spanned from 6°40′ to 10°53′ in Capricorn/Makara in the Sidereal Zodiac. This overlaps small portions of both the 21st Nakshatra, Uttarashadha and the 22nd Nakshatra, Shravana. According to Hindu myth, the 27 Nakshatras are the wives of the god Chandra, the Moon, who stays with one wife for each of the 27 days of the sidereal month.

However, Lord Krishna named Abhijit as his personal Nakshatra, making it a 28th one. Abhijit, अभिजित्, means victorious, and it is associated with the star Vega, the fifth brightest star in the heavens. Its ruling deity is Brahma, the god of creation, and Abhijit has a creative influence that can bring auspiciousness for both social and universal good.
