As per Vedic Astrology, every nakshatra is associated with a specific body part, and this varies for each individual based on their Janma Nakshatra, or the constellation of the Moon at the time of their birth.

The nakshatras are arranged in the natural zodiac, with Krittika Nakshatra marking the start and Ashwini Nakshatra the end, as Krittika is the exaltation point of the Moon. So in the default Nara Chakra, Kritkka represents the head and Ashwini represents the feet.

For instance, if someone is born in Rohini Nakshatra, their head is ruled by Rohini, forehead by Mrigashira, eyebrows by Ardra, eyes by Punarvasu, and so on. Similarly, if someone is born in Punarvasu Nakshatra, their head is ruled by Punarvasu, forehead by Pushya, eyebrows by Ashlesha, eyes by Magha, and so forth.

You can use the Cosmic Insights app to view your Nara Chakra based on your own birth chart, and also check the mapping of planets in your chart to corresponding body parts based on their associated nakshatras.

For example, if someone has Mars in Punarvasu while having a Rohini moon, their eyes would be influenced by Mars.

Anil Kumble – The Man With A Golden Arm

The Nara Chakra concept can be applied in various ways to everyday life. For example, Indian cricketer Anil Kumble, who is considered one of the best spinners, has Mars in Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra, which denotes his right hand according to his Nara Chakra. He is a right-arm bowler.

On Feb 7, 1999, he set a world record by taking 10 wickets in an innings against Pakistan, with Jupiter in transit exactly aspecting his Mars.

When benefic planets transit a specific body part, it promotes healing, whereas malefic planets require us to be cautious and employ remedies to protect ourselves.
