Magha - Ascendant Nakshatra Life Pattern

Please refer to the introductory article here – to understand the theme and purpose of this series.

So, now we will try to understand what will happen if Magha Nakshatra becomes someone’s Ascendant Nakshatra and how it will impact the life pattern of the person.

So, let’s cover this article under the following points –

Ascendant Nakshatra – Ascendant Nakshatra is based on the degree of the Ascendant (please find introduction of all the Nakshatras here -

If Ascendant shows the life path then Ascendant Nakshatra will show the pattern of life. It shows the activities we follow throughout our life as a pattern.

Magha Nakshatra – Magha Nakshatra is from 00.00 degree to 13.20 degree of Leo sign. Magha is nakshatra of Kings, Authority and Authoritative Positions. It is also the nakshatra of celebrities. For more information on Magha, please check this -

Effect of Magha Nakshatra as the Ascendant Nakshatra – Magha is the nakshatra of high royal authority. It shows Kings, Queens and high authority figures in any area of life. It also represents someone who may be authoritative by nature. We can also see celebrities from this Nakshatra or a person who wants himself to be treated like a celebrity. Ego issues can be very apparent for Magha prominent people. This nakshatra can also bring interests towards knowing ancestors or ancient roots. So, these traits can be clearly seen as life pattern.

Ascendant Nakshatra Lord’s Position – Now, as ascendant shows our life path and ascendant lord’s position in chart shows the direction of life path; likewise, ascendant nakshatra shows our life pattern and position of ascendant nakshatra lord in chart shows that in which area of life, the life pattern will be exhibited.

Like, we have discussed all above traits and characteristics of Magha Nakshatra which (any of them) can become Life Pattern for someone if it is person’s ascendant nakshatra. Now, in whichever House/Sign Magha lord Ketu is placed in a Leo Ascendant's chart, person may get Magha’s and Ketu’s results as life pattern. Additionally, person’s life pattern involving aforementioned activities can be exhibited from the house/sign wherever Ketu is placed in chart.

Here, going through Ketu’s position in each house/sign can be repetitive or monotonous. So, for understanding the end result, we can rely on the Concept of Who, How, What & Where -

“Where” is the House where event is happening.

“What” is the Sign which is indicating towards event.

“Who” is the Planet who is bringing the event; and

“How” is the quality of event which depends on nature and dignity of planet.

For example, Ketu in 1st house/Leo for a Leo ascendant chart would show that native can be desirous of gaining fame and recognition or authority in life but in initial life, native can be lacking confidence to approach the same. As person grows in life, he will develop confidence to achieve that authority and recognition. Here, Ketu in Leo/Magha can be helpful for the native as it can help to keep ego in check.

Whereas Ketu in 5th house/Sagittarius for Leo ascendant chart, this person can seek authority and recognition through his higher education, knowledge and creativity. Person can be very much interested in research related education and later that research may bring authority to them. This also shows that someone’s child may become instrumental in gain of authority and recognition. At the same time, for living karakas of 5th house like children or love/romance, it can be a frustrating placement

Final example, Ketu in 8th house/Pisces shows that person may gain his authority and recognition through research oriented matters or occult/mystical things or through spirituality etc. This can be an excellent position to follow spiritual or mystical side of life and native can gain high authority there. It also shows interest in research about ancestors or previous incarnations etc.

Like this, we can understand about how and where the ascendant nakshatra lord is exhibiting the results of life pattern. In further articles of Ascendant Nakshatra and Life Pattern, I will cover other house/sign positions which would help us in learning interpretation of Ascendant Nakshatra and Life Pattern in a more holistic way.

Dignity – As I said, with malefic planets like Saturn and Ketu, dignity doesn’t matter really. So, we cannot decide the probable results with dignity here but we can say that as Ketu is involved, a certain disappointment or separation in life can be a factor which takes the person towards these activities. But we can apply the rule of Jeeva Karaka and Ajeeva Karaka which can tell us where or towards whom the native may have this feeling of isolation/separation.

Conclusion – As I understand, this is how we can understand as to how ascendant nakshatra can setup the life pattern for people with Magha Nakshatra as the Ascendant Nakshatra.

Hope this helps. Thanks,
