What is Gandmool Dosha? How Is It Formed?
Nakshatras or 27 constellations have been mentioned in astrology. Some of these are auspicious constellations and some are unlucky. The Gandmool Nakshatra falls under the category of ominous or unlucky constellations. Akashvani, Ashlesha, Magha, Jyeshtha, Mool and Revati fall into the Gandmool Nakshatra category. When zodiac and constellation finish in the same position, then the position is called the Gandmool Nakshatra. It is believed that the father of a child born in the Gandmool Nakshatra should not see his new-born for 27 days. This leads to difficulties in the life of the father. Like Gandmool, the Mool nakshatra is considered to be the unluckiest constellation. The life of the person born in the mool nakshatra is full of suffering and distress. This dosha is called the Gandmool dosha. This dosha occurs in every 18th horoscope. Gandmool Dosha may be present in your horoscope if you’re born under six specific nakshatras. If you have Gandmool Dosha, there is no need to panic. In fact, many famous personalities have been born with this dosha and yet they have achieved great things in life.
There are 27 possible Janma Nakshatras or birth stars in Vedic Astrology . Nakshatra means star, but actually, the 27 Nakshatras signify 27 constellations.
How does the Placement of the Moon affect Indian Astrology?
The moon is the most significant planet while casting your natal chart. The sun may be more powerful, but the moon is the nearest and so it has more effect on the earth and everything within it. We all know how the moon affects the oceans, causing ebbs-and-flow. Similarly, this planet also affects humans. So, Vedic astrology uses a moon-based system.
The moon moves across the 27 nakshatras and across rashis. Astrologers look at the placement of the moon in relation to the nakshatras at the time of your birth. Consequently, the Nakshatra against which the moon is aligned at the time of your birth becomes your Janma Nakshatra, your birth star.
