What's Your Nakshatra?
I frequent an Indian television forum for Hindi serials. In a sub-forum for a show about mythological figures, I came across this link where you can determine your Nakshatra. I am a moron and before tonight I had never even heard of the term "Nakshatra" for anything astrology-related
Anyway, if anyone wants to input their info, here is the link, and I'd be so curious to see your result if you don't mind copying and pasting http://www.prokerala.com/astrology/nakshatra-finder/
[^ Mods if it's uncool to post this kind of link or topic, I understand and no worries to delete this thread
Here is a link from the same site to all 27 Nakshatra signs, if you are interested in reading about ones other than your own:http://www.prokerala.com/astrology/nakshatra/
Okay since I have slight insomnia this evening, I entered my birthdate, birthtime and location (Evening of June 15 in '74 in Los Angeles.)
And found out I am something called "Revati" symbolized by an eye.
Here was my full result (sounds MUCH cooler than the complete and total loser I am in real life hahaha:p)Basic information about Revati Birth Star

Putting into use his wisdom and social acumen he can also be successful in careers related to administration, astrology and astronomy.Revati Nakshatra Compatibility and Incompatibility
According to the principles of Nakshatra obstruction, Magha and Revati are mutually incompatible. In keeping with the norms of instinctive compatibility or ‘yoni kuta’, Bharani and Revathi are most compatible, with both being symbolized by male and female elephants respectively. Elephant’s inimicality with lion makes it incompatible to Purva Bhadrapada and Dhanistha; on the other hand its friendly orientation towards monkey, sheep and snake makes it compatible to nakshatra symbolized by the same. Consequently, Revathi Nakshatra finds itself on a compatible wave length with Sravana, Utarashaada, Krittika, Rohini and Pushyami nakshatras.
Okay so apparently I need to find a guy who is Bharani, Sravana, Utarashaada, Krittika, Rohini or Pushyami.
[None of which I'd ever heard of before right now. Ha!]
This is all too confusing for my Gemini mind...I'll have to get a guy's birthday, birth-location and time of birth on the first date so I can go on my iPhone and figure out his Nakshatra to see if we're compatible or not?
No problem, I'll ask for that info right upfront, I'll say it's for research purposes. Yea that won't be weird at all LOL [
Edit part II: Shucks!! I entered "AM" instead of "PM" on my birth-time so the above result is not even correct! I am a way less cool sign. Oh well. I will leave the cooler and wrong one up as something to aspire to...? Am such a pathetic headcase over here hehehe
