Significance of Ardra Nakshatra
Ardra Nakshatra is a prominent nakshatra in Vedic astronomy. The nakshatra finds immense significance in Indian mythology too. It is said that when the sun proceeds into Ardra nakshatra, then rain occurs in the Indian subcontinent. The rain symbolizes hope and prosperity as it comes after a rough phase of heat and discomfort. A teardrop or human head is the symbol that defines Ardra Nakshatra.
Rudra is the deity that rules this nakshatra, and Lord Shiva is the Trimurti of the nakshatra. Lord Shiva guides the people with Ardra Nakshatra towards the path of peace and tranquillity. Rahu is the planet that surrounds the nakshatra and is safeguarded by manushya gana.
