Magha Nakshatra

Magha nakshatra in the sign of Leo is a "mighty nakshatra" governed by the ancestors/pitris.

In many ways, magha nakshatra stands as a reminder of "who we are"-

-a "product of the past"๐Ÿ’€

- an "unfinished story" ๐Ÿ’€

- a "repository of deeds" ๐Ÿ

- a "genetic code" ๐Ÿ’€

In an astrological reading, planets in Magha are often interpreted as "holding stories of the past" (ketu influence). Transits over magha can bring memories and unfinished business from the past. The remembering, honouring and "being at peace" with the past is spoken of as both a remedy and an obligation.

All cultures have unique reasons and methods to honor the past/ancestors. Many "healing practices" are based on access to the past. "Pain, suffering and downfall" are often attributed to disregard for ancestors, ancestral customs and wisdom.

MORAL philosophy offers an insightful view on "ancestors".

In many works, the " living ones" are posited as the " ancestors of the future". ROMAN KRZNARIC in "The Good Ancestor" writes about how actions taken by the living today will resonate for the many decades to come...(Krznaric, HOW TO THINK LONG TERM IN A SHORT TERM WORLD).
