Anuradha Karte

Karthe is a period of 13.5 days during which Sun transits through a particular Nakshatra. As the Earth revolves, the Sun also moves through each of the 27 nakshatras for an average time period of 13.5 days. These transits are important for farmers, and other activities associated with rain. Karthe assists in detecting the possibilities and nature of the rain or quality of air for a given period

For instance, The Sun entering the Mrigashira Nakshatra denotes rainy season astronomically this means that the Sun is aligned with Orion constellation’s location.

Technically, the Sun is not hopping onto various constellations, these constellations are located far away from the solar system. It appears like Sun is moving due to our Earth’s movements-rotation and revolution motion; so, as an observer on Earth, since Sun is closer to us than the stars, it seems like Sun is moving from one constellation to another. This results in Karthe.

Anuradha nakshatra - General Characteristics

Anuradha, ‘The Star of Success’ is the seventeenth nakshatra. When the Moon is between 213°20′ to 226°40′ Scorpio, the constellation is called Anuradha. Astronomically, this constellation is of three stars called Beta, Delta, and Pi Scorpionis.

Anuradha in Sanskrit means “A small flash of lightening, a tiny spark or success”. This nakshatra is ruled by Mitra, the God of Friendship and Partnerships. Mitra is one of the Solar deities, a divine companion who promotes compassion, good faith, Cordial & amicable relationships with existence around us.

Saturn is the ruling planet of this star, He grants spiritual affinity, balance, and honour. Anuradha nakshatra natives use both intuition and logical thinking for remarkable results and successful business ventures in foreign lands.
