Impact of Gandamula Nakshatra According to Predictive Astrology

Gandanta means a knot or a joint or a meeting point. In Muhurta it means meeting point between two measures of time which is known as “Sandhi Kaal” like between evening and night, day and night, night and day. Such meeting points or joints are not considered good.

A child born in Ganda Mula Nakshatra is not considered good for various reasons described hereunder. Being born in Gand Mula Nakshatra is not a curse, there may be many other parameters in a horoscope which may propel the native to attain heights and be successful in life.

Vedic astrology says that there are 27 Nakshatras and amongst them 6 are Ganda Mula Nakshatras. They are Ashwini, Ashlesha, Magha, Jyestha, Mula and Revati. Mercury is the Lord of Ashlesha, Jyestha and Revati whereas Ketu is the Lord of Ashwini, Moola and Magha Ganda Mula Nakshatras.

A person born in Gand Mula Nakshatra means his Moon is in these Nakshatras at the time of birth. Every Nakshatra has 4 quarters. Predictive astrology says that Ganda Mula Nakshatra provides inauspicious results to its native.

Let us take Ashwini Nakshatra, 1st pada of Ashwini Nakshatra is inauspicious for the native and his/her parents, 2nd and 3rd Pada gives happy and prosperous life, 4th Pada may give health problems to the child.

Next is Aslesha in Cancer sign, a child born in the 1st Pada of Gand Mula Nakshatra is inauspicious for the child, 2nd Pada born will result into problems for the siblings of the child, 3rd Pada born affects the relationships of the parents and 4th Pada born will destroy the wealth of the father.

A child born in Magha Nakshatra and 1st Pada gives problem to father, 2nd Pada gives problems to mother, 3rd Pada makes the native talented and 4th Pada will endow the native with good higher education.

A child born in Jyestha Nakshatra and 1st or 2nd Pada will bring obstacles in the life of the brothers and sisters of the native, in the 3rd Pada it gives bad health to the mother of the native and the 4th Pada is inauspicious too.

Jyeshtha Nakshatra is the most inauspicious of all Nakshatras. A child born in Mula Nakshatra 1st Pada is inauspicious for the father and 2nd Pada is inauspicious for the mother. Those born in 3rd Pada will lead to loss of property. 4th Pada has less problems but Shanti Puja must be done.

A child born in Revati Nakshatra and 1st Pada gives very auspicious results and those born in 2nd Pada are also not inauspicious.Those born in 3rd Pada gives good education to the child and in 4th Pada it brings obstacles in every field of the native.

These days the credibility and the importance of Ganda Mula Nakshatras is being increasingly questioned. For example, one can ask that if a child is born in a Ganda Mula Nakshatra then how can the child be harmful to his/her father? These are valid questions and only practical observations will answer them. While one should not be misguided by astrology, there is nothing wrong in taking precautions that align astrological forces.

Astrology says that a father can only see his newborn only after 27 days of the child’s birth, that too after the Ganda Mula Nakshatra Shanti ceremony is performed. Today where time is very limited, this remedy may neither be ideal nor practical. Astrologers have to find a simpler remedial method of Ganda Mula Nakshatra. The solution differs between various astrologers.

Another important thing is that a child’s birth in Gandmool Nakshatra is harmful for father only when the quarter of the responsible Nakshatra or house is combust. Thus it will be inappropriate if prediction is made based only on the Ganda Mula Nakshatra of a native.

Many famous personalities have taken birth in the Gand Mula Nakshatra. Pandit Jawahar lal Nehru and Mahatma Gandhi are some of the great personalities to be born under this Nakshatra. Basically are other factors besides Gand Mula Nakshatra need to be studied before reaching a conclusion. In other words, one need not be fearful just because he/she is born in Gand Mula Nakshatra.
