Within the 28 nakshatra system, which indicates the creation of the mind- Abhijeet nakshatra is the 22 nakshatra. This nakshatra has been removed in the 27 nakshatra system, which is indicative of the creation of the body. It is not surprising since, real winning is first mental, within our mental make-up the outward physical manifestation of that victory is then bound to happen in time.
If you do not believe me ask any Martial Arts expert- they will tell you that even the biggest guy with the fastest technique is no competition to the one- who is truly and deeply confident within himself about his power and ability to win. This is not about superficial ‘wanting’ to win or even ‘thinking’ about having the right talent to win- but knowing- deep and pure knowing that you can, and you will win. That is what Abhijeet represents.
Just a quick sidenote, that there are many websites that indicate that Lord Krishna was born during this nakshatra. It is a classic case of one website putting up some information and others blindly copying from it- without the necessary research and analysis!!
Considering the fact that Lord Krishna was born during mid-night, he would have taken birth during the Abhijeet hora (read further to know what this means)- but he was not born during the Abhijeet nakshatra- since Lord Krishna was born with an exalted moon in Rohini in the first house- so his lagna as well as moon chart would indicate Rohini nakshatra.

So, Abhijeet forms the point within the nakshatra journey (or, we should rightly say, the soul journey thru the nakshatras) where it is able to receive blessings from Hari-Hara. A form of the Divine, which has the qualities of both Hari (Lord Vishnu) and Hara (Lord Shiva). The tri-murti lord of Abhijeet is Brahma. So, Abhijeet assimilates and expresses the qualities of ALL the three of the tri-murtis.
I will write separately about how the soul travels thru the various nakshatras and how you can learn a lot about where you are in your soul-lessons and how you can address them and obtain help to achieve true and long-lasting success- in material as well as spiritual terms.
There is a time when one needs to be meditative and/or angry and there are times- where we need to work with calm diplomacy- each of these qualities are essential and the one who wants to be supremely victorious needs to know- when he/she should be utilizing which quality as well as the best manner in which to express it. This is the power of the Abhijeet nakshatra.
In addition, people with a prominent Abhijeet nakshatra in their chart can be highly creative and can come up with truly unique and ‘creative’ solutions to problems and challenges. Where others may not see a way out- a Abhijeet person will be able to find a viable solution. Because of this they can be very resourceful to obtain their objective- till they have clarity of purpose and a well-defined direction of endeavor (note- the negative influence of Shravana can make a person wander aimlessly without clarity of purpose in their life).
Also, another point to note is that all the other Lunar Constellations are feminine in nature, as they are considered to be wives of the Moon; but Abhijeet is masculine in nature.
Because Abhijeet has the power packed from two key nakshatras that inculcate the individual powers of courage, patience, and valor (Uttar Ashada) and divine wisdom (Shravana), it indicates that ‘high point’ the top of… the zenith of being-ness.
It is for this reason that Abhijeet muhurta, i.e., the Abhijeet hora segment of the day is considered extremely auspicious and can be utilized to better time one’s actions for fruitful and favorable results.
Above all, my intension with explaining these ‘not-so-typically-explained’ Jyotish (meaning Eyes of the Vedas- that allow us to see light) concepts is to help you build a Life Process Framework™ that is customized to your own lessons, your trials, and tribulations- so that you can not only thrive materially, but also find peace and happiness.
Some of these concepts are from classical ancient texts and other wisdom details have been obtained from deep contemplative states or as I prefer to say- by the blessings of the Divine Mother.
