Gand Mool Nakshatra
Nakshatra ruled by Mercury and Ketu – Ashlesh, Mool,
Revati, Jyesth and Ashwani are called Gand Mool nakshatras.
If the natal Moon in the horoscope of a child is in one of
these Nakshatras, the child is said to be born in Gand
According to astrologer, child born in these nakshatras
is inauspicious and faces various obstacles and problems
in life, therefore on the 27th day, pooja should be
performed. Some are also of the view that newly born child
is inauspicious to the near relatives like maternal uncle,
father, mother etc.
Some astrologers have difference in views according to
them – Mool, Jyesth and Ashlesha are more
inauspicious.’Jyotish Tatwa’ states that starting 5 hours
of Ashwini, magha and Moola and ending 5 hours of Moola,
Jyeshth and Ashlesha are called “Gand Mool Nakshatras”.
Some have the views that if the child is born in such
Nakshatras, it signifies death of cattle, bad by heart,
bad for maternal uncle, bad for elder brother, bad for
spouse, death of father and death of mother etc.
Why will these ill effects come
into picture is not clear. These ill effects
are not mentioned in classical texts and not even
astrologers know about it.
Six out of twenty seven nakshatras are Gand Mool
Nakshatras. This implies 20% of the population of the
world is inauspicious. Does this mean other 80% population
Our Nakshatra remains for nearly 24 hours. Can it be
believed that inauspicious children will be born in these
Now let us understand what are the rules of the results of
planets in astrology.
If a planet is benefic good
results are going to pass and its dasha will give good
results. Therefore if in a horoscope or for a native,
Mercury or Ketu are benefices and he/she is born in that
Nakshatra, these planets and their dasha will give good
results. It means we can not generalize the statement that
if a child born in Gand Mool Nakshatra always give bad
results will come to pass. This means if planets are
malefic bad results will come to pass. The Nakshatra of
any other planet can also be bad whereas that of Mercury
and Ketu good.
An infant born in Nakshatra
of a Natural benefic say Jupiter may die whereas millions
of children born in Gand Mool Nakshatra lead happy life
Some of the people who born
in the Gand Mool nakshatras and rose to great heights in
their lives are Jawahar Lal Nehru, Mahatma Gandhi,
Astrologers should stop cursing these Nakshatras.
No one should fall prey to ‘Pundits’ when they say that
newly born baby is inauspicious to parents or some other
relative. Mind it that the child is born from the parents
and not the parents take birth from child.
How innocent children can be
inauspicious in this world is beyond understanding!
