Mula nakshatra is, perhaps, the most mysterious lunar mansion. Unlike other nakshatras, it doesn’t consist of stars, but its main portion on the sky contains Galactic Center, a supermassive black hole, around which our solar system is revolving in the cycle of cosmic evolution. Mula nakshatra inspires us to get to the root of all things and ask ourselves more frequently some of the existential question: “Who am I? Where do I come from? Where do I head? What am I doing here?”
This lunar mansion is very much connected with our karmic debts. Nirriti, its presiding deity, is described in the Vedas as the bringer of poverty, loss, chaos and sickness. Yet, her role is not purely negative. Sometimes she creates sickness in the body, so we may heal some conflict within the mind. Sometimes she creates loss, so we may let go of some unhealthy attachments. Sometimes she brings us poverty, so we can pay off some old karmic debts. She always confronts us with truth about ourselves.
