Ardra

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Ardra (moist or perspiring) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Rudra, the god of storms, presides over this sign, symbolized by either a teardrop or drop of sweat. Ardra lies between Gemini 6°40’ and 20° and is ruled by the planet Rahu. This is considered a good time to do difficult physical work, and people may find themselves having a better memory and better skilled at manual labor, while also a bit more arrogant or reckless with their moon in this Nakshatra.
