Arda Nakshatra Story and Hindu Mythology
God Rudra as a child was howling and crying. Lord Brahma asked the cause of his crying to which he replied that he doesn’t have a name. Lord Brahma started giving names like Eisana( lord of the North-East), Pashupatinath (Lord of the wild animals), and many more. Lord Rudra rejected all names until, Lord Brahma came up with the name “Rudra” to which he finally accepted.
In Rig Veda, Rudra is normally represented as the deity of Storm, wind and hunt. Most commonly, Rudra is known to cry out loud. The root of the word, “Rud” means to cry. Ardra Nakshatra is also associated with destruction because he is also connected with Lord Shiva. Thus, at times, when the world declines to support, Rudra turns to be destructive in nature.
According to this mythology of Rudra, Arda people often suffer from the problem of recognition in their life. They can sometimes become anti-social due to the planet Rahu negatively influencing their mind. However, they are extremely intelligent, clever and sharp people. It can sometimes be hard for them to get credit for the work they’ve done for the society.
