Journey with the

Nakshatras

Vedic lunar mansions form the stellar matrix behind the zodiac, each of them reflecting the quality of different gods, representing different Divine qualities and different stages of soul’s journey towards self-discovery. They are the key to understanding who you truly are and what is your soul’s purpose in this lifetime.

Hasta Nakshatra

It is said that this material world is an imperfect reflection of spiritual world. Nakshatras, 27 Vedic stars beyond the zodiac, with their gods and shaktis, are revealing us our Divine potential, as well as give us hints about how can we get the best of it to live more aligned life. After years of practising Vedic Astrology I cannot even imagine doing a reading without implementing an in-depth knowledge about the nakshatras.

And this is what I wish to share with you.

+3 hours per nakshatra

I believe that in order to learn some really deep secrets of Vedic Astrology and lunar mansion superficial approach is not enough. You need enough time to dive deep into the symbolism of each nakshatra, as well as its astrological anatomy, cosmic resonance, and, finally: learning how to apply it in real birth charts. Because each nakshatra has its own dynamism. This is why each of my nakshatra sessions lasts at least 3 hours – but some are longer.
U

+20 study cases

Knowledge without application is fruitless. This is why on each of our nakshatra sessions we will spend some time (sometimes less, sometimes more) to look at real study cases and decode how the energy of that exact nakshatra manifests in the life of that person: how the degree of the planet makes a difference, how it manifests over time through Vimshottari mahadasha, etc. You will also receive at least 20 study cases for your personal studies.
i

+20 pages of pre-read material

With the recording of each Nakshatra session (or before you join any live class) you will receive a comprehensive pre-read material, usually at least 20 pages long. Most of it are fragments from the ancient sacred scriptures, which I have collected over the years of my research. I have spent hours digging through the Vedas and other scriptures to put this information together – which is why you will probably not find it anywhere else.

Spiritual approach

I am not interested in sharing with you only some technical knowledge or telling you how to use the boundless wisdom of the nakshatras just to make some small predictions. What I really want to share with you is how this knowledge can change your life and life of others around you. I want to share with you, how meditating with the nakshatras and learning from their wisdom changed my life, and how it can help you to evolve spiritually, as well.

Choose the Nakshatra you want to learn more about

If you wish to learn just about one nakshatra, which is special to you, that is ok, as well. You can purchase single nakshatra webinar recordings from our online shop. Each nashatra lesson is at least 3 hour long and will be given to you along with comprehensive, at least 20 pages long, pre-read material, visual charts for easier studying and plenty of study cases for self-study.

Ashwini

This is the nakshatra of Divine twins, Ashwins, who, born from the union of Sun-god (Light) and through the nostrils of Samjna (Consciousness) represent prana, cosmic life force, and its creative and healing potential. Airy, swift and dynamic in nature, its energy resembles a running horse. It makes everything more dynamic, speedy and energised. It helps us to find solutions fast. With its power of recovery it has the power to bring instant, miraculous healing to the body and mind.

Bharani

Bharani nakshatra belongs to Yamaraj, god of our conscience, which helps us to navigate through the journey of life on earth. Yama is also a god of death, endings and mortality, who teaches us how to surrender to the flow of life and let go – how to unblock the healthy flow of life by embracing the change and relaxing a little bit into the present moment, instead of fearing the uknown. But he also inspires us to conserve our life force wisely through healthy self-restraint.

Krittika

This star belongs to Agni, the Divine fire that connects the world of humans with the world of gods. This Divine mediator is the bringer of inspiration, clarity, self-knowledge, light and truth. Dwelling partially in the sign of Aries (head of Kalapurusha, Spirit of Time), and partially Taurus (face of Kalapurusha), Krittika nakshatra inspires us to bring more light of truth and integrity into our lives – and to make the light of our inspiration shine through us and manifest into the world.

Rohini

Rohini is the star of growth and expansion, as its presiding deity is Prajapati or Divine Creator himself. He is responsible for our urge to create, procreate, grow and expand, so we can progress in material and spiritual life. Rohini inspires us to grow, arise, expand, create, progress and materialise all our ideas. It nourishes all that it touches. This is why we need to be very careful, which desires are we allowing into our inner space on the day when Moon is in Rohini nakshatra.

Mrigashira

Mrigashira is a star governed by blissful Soma, who presides over our mind itself. Its shakti or power is prinana shakti, which is the power to give us bliss and fulfillment – a powerful indication that true fulfillment and bliss are hidden in… our own state of mind itself. When mind is peaceful or saumya, bliss awakens naturally. Mrigashira nakshatra is the star of searching – but very often what it is really searching for, the deeper sense of fulfillment, is hidden deep inside.

Ardra

Ardra literally means “the moist one”. Similarly like reviving rain, which usually comes along with storm, softens the soil, so our heart gets transformed and softened through intense life experiences. This is the star of Rudra, who is the god of all the inner and outer storms, turbulence, transformations and powerful, unrestrained forces of nature. He challenges us to make our effort when meeting turbulent situations in life and see how we can progress through them.

Punarvasu

This lunar mansion belongs to Aditi, the Mother of gods, who birthed the entire creation into being. She represents our ability to manifest our ideas and give birth to them in material world. Being a presiding deity of akash of all-embracing ether element, she connects us with the boundless source of inspiration, which we can access only when we maintain open and non-judgemental state of mind. That is why she is called Aditi: “the undivided one”.

Pushya

Pushya nakshatra helps us to nourish all that is good, within us and to grow above our limitations, like lotus flower, which grows in the mud, pierces through the surface to become the most beautiful of all flowers. It inspires us to seek beauty and opportunity to grow in every life experience. It also teaches us not to be afraid to open our hearts – because our soul, more vast than the sky, is so much bigger than any of our little problems. Such are the spiritual lessons from Pushya nakshatra.

Ashlesha

Ashlesha nakshatra, star ruled by Nagas, Divine serpents, is one of the most challenging and most misunderstood lunar mansions. It is also the most vulnerable and the most sensitive of all the stars, which can often make its energy overly introverted and overly protective. Before we experience final freedom, release and detachment of Magha nakshatra, it is here, in Ashlesha, that all our inner attachments, poisons and layers of our ego, are getting intensely purified and finally need to be left behind.

Magha

Magha nakshatra, bringing release after intense energies in Ashlesha, inspires us to seek spiritual freedom from material bondages – but at the same to honour our roots and stay responsible towards the world that we come from. Because detachment, without respect to our eternal connection to continuum of life, can be destructive, too.

Anatomy of the Nakshatras

Anatomy of the Nakshatras is a student’s book, which I prepared especially for participants of my on-going Nakshatra Course to support them in researching some of the fascinating features of the nakshatras, Vedic lunar mansions. You will find here 5 visual slides per each nakshatra:
1. Nakshatra placement in the zodiac
Nakshatra placement in the zodiac in relation to exaltation and debilitation signs of its nakshatra lord. Because in the manifested universe everything is interconnected – nothing exists independently. You can learn a lot about the nature of the nakshatra, just by relating it to exaltation and debilitation placements of its nakshatra lord.

2. Detailed information on each nakshatra pada
Each nakshatra has its 4 quaters with their own unique qualities, such as vibration, element, gender, maturity, motivation, navamsha rashi and personality traits.
3. Anatomy of the nakshatra
Anatomy of the nakshatra with all its special degrees marked in a visually attractive way. On these slides you will finally find all the special degrees integrated into one visual chart, which makes it easier to research and memorise them: yogataras, amrita nadis, visha nadis, gandantas, pushkara bhagas, mrityu bhagas, exaltation, debilitation and mulatrikona degrees of the grahas, as well as vargottama, pushkaramsha and ashtamamsha padas.
4. Navatara nakshatra
Navatara nakshatras and special taras, along with their explanation. Becuause each nakshatra shares some type of relation with every other nakshatra.
5. Nakshatra vedhas
Nakshatra vedhas or so-called „nakshatra aspects”. You will notice a beautiful logic behind how different nakshatras and their deities are geniously interconnected in this Sarvatobadra Chakra – and it will give you additional insights into the nature of the nakshatra and its interactions.

Achala Sylwia Mihajlovic

I am an Atma Kriya Yoga teacher, Vedic Astrologer and a fellow soul on a journey through life. Since I started practising Vedic Astrology, back in 2010, it greatly enriched my spiritual path and experience of life itself. It allowed me to notice the Divine presence, manifested in our lives in so many vibrant forms, in much more tangible way – and at the same time taught me how to learn from the wisdom of the present moment. To that Divine knowledge I bow down. And I hope it will inspire you in the same way.
