MAGHAM,  is represented by a sickle-shaped group of stars. The brightest among these is ALPHA-LEONIS.  With a visual magnitude of 1.41, it is also known as the "LITTLE KING".  Ancient Vedic seers saw this nakshatra as a THRONE while other cultures saw it as a LION.


Magham's main symbol is a "THRONE".  This symbol conjures up a picture of royalty, power, status & honour.  However, the bottom line of this symbol lies  in one-word, i.e. "ACHIEVEMENT".

PITRIS or "THE ANCESTORS" are the main ruling deity of this nakshatra.  Therefore, it comes as no surprise that the world of the ancestors control Magham.

Actually, we owe a lot to our ancestors in terms of our actual identity and station in life, even without knowing or acknowledging it, as in the case in modern times. Ancestor worships were one of the strands which connected all ancient civilizations. 

Our ancient ancestors obviously were not ungrateful fools compared to many of us living in modern times, and saw it as their duty and privilege to keep alive the knowledge of their roots, by honouring and in some cases bonding with their ancestors in the other realms. That is why, ancesteral worship still remains a serious matter.

The modern science of Genetics has made it clear that most of our abilities and capabilities are dependant upon our genetic code.  And this genetic code is basically a sort of free gift from our ancestors. Magham, basically is a nakshatra which deals with the past.

The Puranic texts says there is a heavenly realm called "PITRA LOKAM" or "world of the ancestors".  This is the world where we go after our physical deaths.  It is sort of an intermediary station where souls meet their ancestors and rest for a while, before returning to earth for another life or moving on to other lokas. Therefore, Magham is a nakshatra relating both to our identity in the present life and our after-death journey.

In the universal scheme of things, Magham relates to "THYAGA SHEPANI SHAKTI" - the power of the astral body to cut its ties with the physical body. Magham guides the souls to Pitra Loka after one's death.  Thus, Magham is basically a facilitator in change-of-state.

It is a FEMALE nakshatra & is primarily a "KAPHA" or watery nakshatra due to its ability to hide its ambitions, motives and fieriness under a calm exterior.  A calm exterior is often associated with water sign or kapha element.

NOSE, LIPS & CHINS are the body parts related to this nakshatra.

According to Varahamihira, those born in Magham have "lots of wealth, many servants, live a life of luxury and enjoyment, preserving & devoted to gods and ancestors".

The 1st paagam of Magham indicates the will-power aspect of Magham;

The 2nd paagam of Magham indicates its emphasis on image & materialism, also known as very ambitious paagam of Magham;

The 3rd paagam of Magham indicates the intellectual side of Magham ; &

The 4th paagam of Magham indicates the love of rituals, ceremonies, ancestor worships and family pride. This paagam also produces very famous personalities too.

DO YOU KNOW which paagam of MAGHAM you belong to?  Every paagam comes with different interpretations.  Only DETAILED ASTROLOGERS can let you know the difference.
