So I was delving into nakshatra and pada and Rashis and I am confused how is a month divided into 27 nakshatras.
This is what I know so far.
So nakshatras are the lunar mansions (imagine home were the Moon resides) when the Moon (on its rotation around the Earth) crosses the elliptical of the Earth round the Sun. By doing a simple calculation we can see that there would be 27 such crossings (nakshatra) and each spanning for 13.33 degree. So when I imagine a year I imagine it to be 27 nakshatras (with further subdivisions) and each month approximately equal to 2.25 nakshatras.
I was comfortable till then. Then I looked into the panchang of this year and I noticed that every month has all the nakshatras. How is this possible ? What am I misunderstanding ?
