Abhijit Nakshatra, March 2018

Vega

In the days of yesteryear, perhaps many yugas past, Vega was the pole star, and Abhijit nakshatra was counted among the nakshatras for both electional astrology and timing of events – muhurtam. It is told that before the commencement of the Mahabharatha War, the Kauravas went to strenuous efforts to prevent Lord Krishna from starting this war under the auspice of Abhijit, for it was well known that any project commenced under Abhijit would come to success.

In this day and age, Vega is no longer the Pole Star and Abhijit Nakshatra is removed from the list of the 27 nakshatras that the sun traverses, monthly. Abhijit is now an intercalary nakshatra; it is used to harmonise the calendar with the solar year. The panchang gives this Abhijit Nakshatra commencing tomorrow (Tuesday, 13 March) at times suited to your location. At another location begins at at 11:19, late morning, and ceases at 19:49pm. We recommend checking your local time here.
