Moola means basics or the root. The center of the galaxy lies in the asterism of the stars that make the Moola Nakshatra, so this Nakshatra becomes the fulcrum of the existence for the Milky Way.

It is said that at the advent of a planet in Moola Nakshatra, relief is felt in diseases. We can relate this fact to Ayurveda which is based on the use of plants, their roots, and leaves to cure diseases.

The roots have the ability to penetrate the solid earth and move deep within the bowels. They have the ability to withstand and work their way through opposition and emerge victoriously. Getting to the base of things is what this Nakshatra is good at. They are devoted to a cause. Moola is represented by a bunch of tied roots and as such shows either getting together all the resources to a point of concentration to get work done or it refers to the tying of hands due to certain limitations of the person concerned and working within those limitations to get to fulfill the cause at hand.

Jyestha represents the highest power or achievements possible for mankind and sees an insurgence of ego in such achievements. For the Divine Grace to be experienced, the wall of ego has to be let go off. This happens in the Nakshatra of Moola where Nirruti acts as the deity of destruction to begin a new chapter of synthesis of a better, more humble human being with a deep sense of gratitude for the Divine. This is the area where the sense of new development with the help of Divine energy can be felt and experienced.

A person on the lower rungs of evolutionary growth feels the need to control much of his life and Moola acts in a manner which is very opposed to it. As much as the person tries to control, that much of it moves out of the person’s control, making the person nervous, intense, paranoid and results in a violent personality.


Jupiter is said to be a benefice of the first order. It is the one with the most points in the Ashtakvarga system. It bestows one with a lot of happiness and material benefits to lead a comfortable life in addition to spiritual growth. As the Guru of the Devtas, Jupiter teaches us the ability to work on principles and also teaches us the Brihaspati Samhita shastra or the Laws of politics. It teaches us to follow the path of the righteous.

Jupiter is an expansive planet and so it shows expansion in the house it sits. Being the Guru of the Devtas, it establishes supremacy over the house it sits and owns.

As Jupiter transits in its own House of Sagittarius, it would deal with very strong vibrations and energies. These energies when associated with the Moola Nakshatra lead to very dramatic changes in life which may alter the life path and thought processes.
