We are aware of 12 Zodiac Signs. Group of stars together form a Constellation.

**Each Constellation is called as a Nakshatra.** There are **27 constellation or Nakshatra.**

**Points to Remember: **

- Each is sign is of 30 degree (Sign – Aries, Leo, etc)
- Each sign has 2 and half constellations (Or Nakshatra)
- So 30 degree (Sign) divided by 2 1/2 Constellation gives 13 degree and 20 minutes which is equal to 1 constellation.
- 30/2.5 = 13 degree 20 minutes

- Each constellation is further divided into 4 parts and each part of the constellation (Nakshatra) is called as
**Pada.**

So,

**Each Sign is 30 degree (Each Sign is made up of 2 and 1/2 Constellation)****Each Constellation is 13 degree 20 minutes (Each Constellation is made up of 4 Pada)****Each Pada within a constellation is 3 degree 20 minutes.**
