The Western and Hindu astrological studies are derived from studies of astronomy and effects on humans, their personalities, features, past, present and future. The Western astrology has been inspired by Ptolemy’s Tetrabiblos of the 2nd century.
Today, Western astrology or the sun sign astrology, or predictive astrology, is focused on the solar movements and positions and the constellations.
Hindu astrology, also known as Jyotisha or Jyotishya, is derived from ancient Vedic study of the lunar position, the stars, the solar ascent and several parameters determining the human nature.
The term Nakshatra is one of the most applied theories studied in the Hindu astrology. The Indian astronomy and astrology are based on the lunar mansion or the lunar orbit path, otherwise known as the Nakshatra.
Among the 27 Nakshatra, including the zodiac signs, is the storm god nakshatra or the Ardra.
The sixth Nakshatra, of the Gemini constellation, is the Ardra or the moist one or the green or the storm god. Associated with Betelgeuse star, the Ardra extends from 6 degrees to 20 degrees of the Mithuna or Gemini constellation.
The symbol of Ardra is the teardrop, and the ruling planet is Rahu. The Ardra is completely Gemini related Nakshatra, a mix of Rahu and Mercury. The people with this sign in their births are violent on one spectrum and rather passionate on the other.
