The term "Nakshatra", when broken down into its constituent parts: "naks" meaning "sky" and "shatra" meaning "region", translate into "Sky Map". Another translation is arrived at using a different dissection: "naksha" is "map" and "tara" is "star" and so Nakshatra is "Star Map".
Nakshatra is the constellation. It stands for the power, mystery, beauty and symbolism of the stars, capturing the essence of nature's magical metamorphosis through billions of years.
The signs and Nakshatras create the necessary environment, while the planets are the precipitating forces. The Nakshatras and signs of the zodiac are the passive creative potency whereas the planets are the creative or generating forces. The planets are active causes whereas the signs and Nakshatras are the material layer of the action.
Nakshatra positions of planets are examined in the birth chart as well. The use of Nakshatra is very important in Vedic astrology, much more than with zodiac signs.
There are 27 Nakshatras. Every Nakshatra measures 13.20' (13 degrees and 20 minutes). In each Nakshatra there are 4 padas. Therefore, in 3 Nakshatras we have 12 padas. Because each pada represents a sign of the zodiac in a group of 3 Nakshatras we find the entire zodiac in the form of padasigns.
