The Fiducial Star, Moola

Lambda Scorpi was called Moola by the Indian astronomers. Moola stands for Moola Adhaar, the Base, the Root. The Rishies meant that this Star is the Base of the Zodiac, its Root !
There are reasons for this
Moola is in line with the Galactic Center, Sagittarius A*.
At that time, Moola was the First Star and Jyeshta was the last.
The Arabs called it Shaula, the Scorpion's Tail.
We feel that ISRO should provide more photos of the 27 constellations of the Indian Zodiac.
