and Pitris Devata Homam
Significance of Magha Nakshatra
Magha is an important nakshatra in the Vedic astronomy area; the nakshatra means star of power. This star is safeguarded by Pitris deity; pitris are the ancestors and forefathers of the human lineage. This nakshatra’s influence in horoscopes implies that there is always a hand of blessings of the great forefathers. Bharani, who is the god of ancestors, is also linked with Magha nakshatra.
The palanquin is the emblem of Magha nakshatra; the symbol exemplifies royalty, riches, and prosperity. Aries, Taurus, Gemini, and Cancer are the padas of Magha Nakshatra. Ketu is the planet that safeguards the nakshatra, and Brahma is the Trimurti that protects the people of the nakshatra. Leo and Virgo are the constellations that fall in this nakshatras span.
