The sign in which the moon is placed in a chart and the Nakshatra or star constellation in which it is placed, is very important as they play a major role in judging the horoscope and the events of your life. If you don't know your Rasi or the moon sign, or want to know the Rasi and Nakshatra position of the moon for any given day and time, use this calculator. Parents generally consult astrologers and numerologists to know the nakshatra and hence the correct syllable to bring luck to their baby. To decide baby names by nakshatra and rashi is considered to be auspicious in India.
The nakshtras give astrologers an insight into your baby's personality and help you choose the correct name for him/her. This is the reason many parents consult nakshatras before deciding the name of their kid.Nakshatras or birth stars are actually star signs that are used in astrology to do future predictions. When the Moon travels it passes through twenty-seven sections also known as "lunar houses" and each of these lunar houses has one dominant star or constellation. These twenty-seven houses are called nakshatras in Vedic astrology.
For choosing a baby name by birth star,If you are born in India you need not change the latitude, longitude or time zone. Just type your date of birth and the time of birth. You will instantly know the degrees, minutes, seconds, the Rasi and the Nakshatra in which the Moon was placed at the time of your birth. Your Rasi and your Nakshatra are important points in a horoscope. Even while performing a lot of important rituals & poojas your Rasi and your Nakshatra are required.
Here it should be mentioned that nakshatras are different from rashis. Nakshatras are determined by the position of moon whereas rashis are based on the position of the sun. There are twelve rashis in total. Usually, astrologers use a person's rashi along with her/his nakshtra to determine the complete picture of his/her personality.
