Nakshatra Tara Chakra

Tara Chakra in Astrology is used to identify which nakshatras are favorable for a person and which are not.  In Tara Chakra system, 27 nakshatras are divided into 9 categories: Janma, Sampat, Vipat, Khesma, Pratyeri, Saadhak, Vadha, Maitree, Aadhi-Maitree.

Vipat, Pratyeri and Vadha nakshatra create difficulties in life.  So, the planets that are in the vipat, pratyeri and vadha are not auspicious.

Janma Nakshatra is the nakshatra of the moon at the time of birth.

The nakshatra after the janma nakshatra is sampat nakshatra.

The nakshatra after sampat  is vipat and so on.

The 9th nakshatra is Aadhi-maitree.

 After that is again janma. And the cycle contunes till 27 nakshatras.

 

For example, if a person is born on Ashwini nakshatra, the janma nakshatra is Ashwini. The nakshatra after that, bharni, is sampat. The nakshatra after that, kruttika, is vipat. See table below for all details:
