Magha (0.00-13.20 Leo) is ruled by Pitris/Ancestors. It is a nakshatra governed by Ketu, in the sign Leo which is ruled by the Sun. Magha refers to Maghaban which is the cause of light and brightness.
Magha is also denoted by the words ‘benevolent’, ‘bountiful’, ‘magnificent’ or ‘mighty’. This constellation is symbolized by the palanquin/throne which is indicated by royalty, power, status and prestige.
The fierce element of Magha corresponds to Ketu/Sun. As a ferocious planet, Ketu can be as violent as the intense Sun. Again, the sun is also associated with authority/magnanimity and humility, or mercilessness and tyranny, leading to the natives being blinded by power. Magha is in fact a human asterism that fosters the humaneness of the esoteric Ketu.
The native is conscious of their social status and performance of duty, and in a negative context, can lead to over ambition. On a higher reality, Magha displays a high capacity for idealism, even when it is surrounded by material wealth.
