Kumbh Mela is made up of two words Kumbh and Mela. The name Kumbh is derived from the immortal pot of nectar which the Devtas and the demons fought over as described in ancient Vedic scriptures known as the Puranas. Mela, as we all are familiar, is a Sanskrit word meaning 'gathering' or 'to meet'.

The history of Kumbh Mela is related to the days when the Devtas and the Demons conjointly produced nectar of immorality as depicted by the legends. The Devtas and the demons agreed to complete the task together and decided to share the nectar of immorality in half. The Devtas and the demons then assembled on the shore of the milk ocean that lies in the celestial region of the cosmos. The churning of the milk ocean produced a deadly poison which Lord Shiva drank without being affected. After crossing through many hurdles years later, Dhanwantari appeared with the nectar of immortality in her hands

Pada 1 6' 40' - 10' 00' Sagittarius Navamsa:: ruled by Jupiter:: This relates to the happy go lucky, optimistic and philanthropic side of this nakshatra. It has a tendency to get carried away and so it is important for those under the influence of this pada to choose the right thing to get carried away with. They are the kind who will go about fanatically espousing their cause or belief.

Pada 2 10'00' - 13 20'  Capricorn Navamsa:: ruled by Saturn. This conveys the more practical and organizational aspect of this pada. This is the pada which relates to all material activities under the domain of Shatabhisha. One has to watch out for excessive ambition in relation to the planet posited in this pada.

 Pada 3 13" 20' - 16 40'  Aquarius Navamsa ruled by Saturn. This pada relates to the visionary futuristic and philosophical side of this nakshatra.  In its negative aspect, it can be too eccentric and rebellious. Planets placed in this pada often do well on the material plane as this is a vargottama position.

 Pada 4 16 40' - 20 00' Pisces Navamsa ruled by Jupiter. This pada relates to the expansive, hallucinatory and illusory side of the nakshatra. When favorable it can give great powers of healing and compassion. When afflicted it can make one too ambiguous.

Shatabishak in a way represents the culmination of the Air Element. It is thus the master of the mental, analytical and logical. Shatabishak loves to get to the truth of anything in much the same way as Mula loves to get to the root of everything. Even though Shatabishak natives are usually quiet and undemonstrative which one should expect them to be since they are supposed to be the masters of secrecy they often blurt out harsh truths at the most inopportune moments. This is, in fact, one of the major problems Shatabishak natives face in climbing the ladder of success, especially material success. Refinement and.sensitivity is not their forte.
