Rohini is a nakshatra in Indian astronomy corresponding to Aldebaran.

In Hindu mythology, Rohini is a daughter of Prajapati Daksha and his consort, Prasuti. She was one of the twenty-seven daughters of Daksha who married the moon-God Chandra. She was the favourite and chief consort of Chandra, and the step mother of Budha (not to be confused with Buddha). Chandra is often identified with Soma.

Rohini is ruled by Prajapati, the Creator. Of the 27 daughters, Rohini was the Moon's favorite wife. This is the fourth nakshatra of the zodiac, ruled by the planet Moon. It spreads from 10° 0' in Vrishabha to 23° 20' in Vrishabha. Eyes of the people born in this nakshatra are especially attractive. The word is derived from root word Rohan which means to rise or to bring into existence. The other name of Rohini is Suravi - the celestial cow.

Characteristics

Chandra with wife Rohini

Rohini is the wife of Chandra who is said to have been fond of fine dress, cosmetics and décor and was the most beloved of Chandra or Moon. Therefore, out of all the 27 Nakshatras, it is considered the most fortunate or beneficial for one to have his or her natal Moon placed within, in regards to Vedic astrology.

Those born in the star Rohini are magnetic, handsome or beautiful, sexually skilled and driven, good speakers and poets. Rohini evokes some degree of jealousy because others may resent that a person gains such abundance. It can increase desire. These are only side effects to its great prosperity.

Lord Krishna, one of the incarnations of Vishnu, the Saviour is born in this star.
