Dear Friends

I have encountered the following passage in Purnabhadra's recension of the

"astronomical specialities such as predictions, prophecies, horoscopy,
augury, the division of each house of the zodiac into three, nine, twelve
and thirty, the shadow of the gnomon, naSTa, muSTi, [their influence on the]
elements [of the body], their houses, [their influences on] life and
thoughts, culaka, and mASaka."

Can anyone help me with the terms naSTa, muSTi, culaka and mASaka?

Many thanks
