ARE YOU BORN IN MRIGASHIRIDAM'S / MRIGASHIRA'S NAKSHATRA? (Star 5)

MRIGASHIRIDAM is represented in the celestial sky by a bright star and three not so bright stars in the constellation of ORION. These stars are known in modern astronomy as Pi2-Orionis, Pi3-Orionis, Pi4-Orionis & Gamma-Orionis (Bellatrix).


BELLATRIX is the bright STAR among them, with a visual magnitude of 1.66.  It is easy to lacate, as ORION is one of the most prominent and easily noticeable constellation in the night sky.  And Bellatrix is the bright star at the top right hand corner of Orion, while the three faint stars can be aligned in a bow like formation on the right hand side of Bellatrix.

The ancient VEDIC SEERS saw these stars to be forming a DEER'S HEAD.  Therefore, Mrigashiridam translates into the "DEER'S HEAD". The association with a deer makes this nakshatra possess all deer like qualities such as timidity, fragility, fickleness, wandering, etc. 


In all ancient Vedic texts, deers are associated with gentle aspects of nature and often play major roles in ROMANTIC stories. In the vedic epic of RAMAYANA, it was a magical deer (actually a demon posing as a deer) that caught SITA's attention.

Another symbol besides the Deer, is "POT FULL OF SOMA".  And Soma is the preferred drink of the gods.  It is a kind of celestial nectar associated with the Moon.  In fact, Soma is one of the sanskrit names of the Moon.

The main DEITY of this nakshatra is the MOON. Ancient vedic seers also saw this nakshatra as a seat of SHAKTI.  In fact, PARVATI, the wife of SHIVA is the main PRESIDING DEITY of this Nakshatra.

The essence of the nature and functioning of Mrigashiridam can be summed up by one word - 'SEARCHING'. Mrigashiridam is the most curious amongst all nakshatras and thus makes one seek new areas of experience.

It's gender is known to be neutral and has the ability to function both as a male and a female. This dual functioning is clear from its ruling deities MOON and PARVATI.  Moon is seen as a male deity by the Vedic seers while Parvati is the female companion of Shiva.

It is a primarily "PITTA" (fiery) nakshatra.

It's direction:
