Importance of Lagna Nakshatra
“When in a nativity, the lord of Lagna has brilliant rays, the man concerned is blessed with fame. If the Lagna lord is well placed, the native attains happiness and prosperity.”
The above extract is derived from Phaladeepika, one of the most significant treatise on Hindu Astrology. The shlok, originally composed in Sanskrit, gives us a cosmic insight into the intricate workings of the planetary transition and the importance of Lagna Nakshatra in one’s horoscope.
It is one the most vital part of one’s horoscope and the positioning has the power to dictate how the life of a person is to pan out. In other words, it describes the pattern of native’s life. During the birth, just as different planets take up nakshatras, Lagna also acquires a nakshatra. Lagna or the rising sign rules the first house in the horoscope and this deals with key aspects related to the person such as physique, health, vitality, natural disposition, personality traits as well as how life is going to turn out. In a nutshell, Lagna nakshatra is the key factor that tells how a person will interact with the world around him or her.

The Lagna, also known as lagnesha, through its sign and the house in which it is positioned, along with Nakshatra tells us how we look at life. The Lagna tells us about our liveliness, strength and resilience, while the position of Lagna signifies the areas of life where we feel the most balanced and confident. It is a strong indicator of our role in society and also gives an insight into how others tend to behave with this person or how they perceive him or her.
Now the factors on which the effects of Lagna are based are conditional and have different effects based on whether it attains drishti from benefics or malefics. The influence of malefics brings damage to the Lagna, while the influence of benefic helps enhance the positive effects. Additionally, it is of dire importance to find out whether the Lagna is swakshetra, uchchamsha or mulatrikona as the position grants it with the power of increased benefits. On the other end, if the Lagna is fallen, it dictates the onset of difficulties in the form of unfavorable personality traits or even a physical barrier. Hence, a strong Lagna is pivotal to leading a healthy, prosperous and satisfying life.
Different planets and stars have diverse effects on Lagna and the careful observation and analysis of the same offers detailed insight on personality traits and many other aspects. Here’s a list of planets and stars with the effect on Lagna:
