Hinduism - Who Is Rohini(Daksha) In Hindu Mythology?

 

In Hindu mythology, a daughter of the deity Daksha who is wedded to the Moon alongside her twenty-six sisters.

Despite Daksha's pleas to give them all equal time, the Moon prefers Rohini above her sisters.

Finally, Daksha curses the Moon, causing him to lose his brilliance.

The curse is subsequently changed so that the moon would wax and wane, but its departure will never be complete.

Hinduism - What Are The Indications Of The Moon In Jyotisha Or Hindu Astrology?


 A planet connected with fecundity (fertility) in Hindu astrology (jyotisha), albeit its aspect may be either beneficent or malicious—benevolent with the waxing moon, and malevolent with the declining moon.

The full moon is regarded the most fortunate moment of the lunar month.

The new moon, on the other hand, is seen as a ritually uncertain and hence potentially deadly moment.

During the week, the moon rules over Monday, which is widely seen as a lucky day and one that Shiva honors as Somnath, the Lord of the Moon.
