A Tithi may vary in length from day to day), Karana (A Karana is half of a Tithi or lunar day), Nakshatra (Nakshatra means star cluster. In Hindu astrology the term nearly always refers to 27 specific star-clusters, or constellations, which lie along the ecliptic; the ecliptic is the apparent yearly path of the sun as seen from the earth.), Yoga (A yoga is a planetary configuration, union or relationship; it’s the exact measurement of the of the angular relationship between Sun and Moon, one Yoga equals 13 degrees 20’)
