Seeing Nakshatras relevant to Signs
Is their a way in Kala to see how all the Nakshatras line up with the Rasis in the birth chart? I see the Nakshatra wheel, but I don't see the whole rasis linked with that. I do see cusps though.
I was trying to see how the nakshatras line up with the tropical signs.
No, there is not. When using equatorial type options there is no alignment possible.
Not exactly. There are stars that share the same names as the nakshatras, however, there is no ayanamsa made or possible where all the stars named as the nakshatras would actually fit into the nakshatra portions. There are always a couple that slip into the next or the previous nakshatra space. So nakshatras are not based on stars, but on a space of 13 degrees and 20 minutes. Galactic center middle of mula puts revati at about 10 minutes before Aries, so right where many old books claim it to be. So it supports the revati school of ayanamsas that either put revati at 0 aries or revati at 10 minutes before aries.
The other main school is the chitra school that puts chitra star at about the beginning of libra, that would include lahiri, KP, ardra galactic plane.
I think so.
Correct. People like to think the nakshatras are the stars, but if you just try to line up the stars with the nakshatras you realize its not so. Many stars do not fit in the nakshatra portion they are named after. The stars just give a rough visual idea of where a planet or moon is in the nashatras and thats it. Some of the stars, MANY OF THEM, are so far north or south of the ecliptic that a planet will never even get close to it and by close i mean within 20 degrees of arc!
