Mythologies Associated with Rohini Nakshatra

As the age-old stories still continue to prevail, we know 2 most prominent stories ascribed to the Rohini Nakshatra.

  1. Daksha, Chandra and Rohini

Daksha got his 27 daughters married to Chandra (Moon God in Hindu Mythology). He took a promise from Chandra, asking him to treat all his daughters equally and never discriminate between them. According to Hindu mythology, these 27 daughters of Daksha, now Chandra's wives, come to form the 27 Nakshatras. However, soon after the marriage, due to Rohini's charm, Chandra starts portraying bias toward her. He spends more time with Rohini than any other of the 26 sisters. Jealous and Envious of the attention Rohini was getting, the other 26 sisters went to their father, Daksha. Daksha, angered by Chandra's acts breaking his promise, cursed Chandra to suffer from a deadly disease. The curse made Chandra extremely weak, and this, in turn, affected the lives of animals and humans on earth. Looking at the instability caused on earth due to Chandra's curse, he approached Mahadev Shiva to get the curse reversed. However, Shiva was incapable of reversing a curse put by another. So he went on and placed Chandra on his forehead. This was an act of great significance. Chandra soon began to regain his health and to pay his respect to Shiva also started the festival of Shivratri, which is celebrated toward the end of the waning moon every month, and Maha-Shivratri is celebrated every year with the onset of summer.

  1. Moon, Tara and Brihaspati

Brihaspati is known to be the Guru of Devas. Tara was his wife. Tara mostly felt ignored by Brihaspati as he was always busy with the matters of Devas. Once when Chandra came to visit Brihaspati, he was amazed by the beauty of his wife Tara and, in hopes of getting a hold of her, used hypnosis. He then proceeds to elope with Tara. When Brihaspati knew about this, he went to Chandra and asked him to return his wife, Tara, to him. Chandra refused Brihaspati’s request on the basis that Tara came with her will. But Chandra didn’t stop there and went on disrespecting Brihaspati. This angered Brihaspati so much that he and Chandra were adamant about indulging in war. Brihaspati was supported by Devas.

On the other hand, Chandra was supported by Asurs and the nemesis of Brihaspati - Shukra. The matter got so complicated that Lord Brahma had to intervene to solve it. He persuaded Chandra to let Tara go with Brihaspati. Tara was already pregnant at this time and gave birth to Budh. Brihaspati asked Tara who the father was, to which Tara replied it was Chandra. Later, due to Budh’s extreme genius and skills, Brihaspati adopted it.

The two stories help to determine the characteristics of a person born in the Rohini Nakshatra as according to the first tale of Chandra, Rohini and Daksha - the native tends to get the attributes of Rohini. Thus, they come around to be good-looking and intentionally or unintentionally tend to make others jealous of them.

In the second tale of Chandra, Tara and Brihaspati - the native will experience difficulties in their relationship with their father and proceed to have a self-centred and irritated personality. However, it also makes them justice-loving.
