Astrological characteristics of the Purva Phalguni Nakshatra

  • Rats are females, and they are the Purva Phalgun Nakshatra’s yoni animal.
  • Because female rats can mate 500 times in 6 hours, the natives have a tremendous sexual drive and desire for pleasure.
  • Bhaga is the subject of Purva Phalguni’s narrative. He is the patron deity of prosperity, worldly bliss, sex, lust, love, and rest.
  • He also mentions inheriting from family.
  • According to the legend, Daksha invited every God to his yagna, with the exception of Shiva because he was one of his daughter’s husband.
  • Due in part to Sati getting married to him, Shiva was not invited.
  • Shiva was upset by Sati’s suicide. The yagna was destroyed by Virabhadra, who also blinded Bhaga, the deity of Purva Phalguni.
  • Because of this, people from Purva Phalguni often spend money carelessly and occasionally suffer eye injuries, whether it be pink eye or a mosquito bite near the eyes.
  • Natives of Purva Phalguni dislike spending too much time around yagnas, where onions are cut, as their eyes begin to itch easily.
  • Bhaga is a party animal who enjoys sex parties, orgies, drinking, and hanging out with lots of people.
  • For Bhaga, having sex and engaging in sexual activity was a way to encounter divinity.
  • It is well known that he is Varuna and Indra’s brother.
  • The three brothers are well known for their love of fun, alcohol, and all that heaven has to offer.
  • This Nakshatra has a bed and a fireplace as its symbols.
  • This image is most commonly associated with the bed’s back legs, where the head rests.
  • When we think of a bed and fireplace, it’s the cosiest place and perhaps the most romantic spot.
  • This is exactly what this Nakshatra energy represents.
  • It is about rest, sleep, love making and enjoying one’s time.
  • Purva Phalguni natives love sleeping on bed; they love sleeping in the middle of the day, wanting to oversleep in the morning, working from the bed, eating from the bed; pretty much whatever can be done sitting on a table, they rather do it on the bed.
  • Most of the time, jugs of water or many glasses of water near the bedside can also be found, as the opposite sign is Aquarius, the water bearer.
  • Natives of Purva Phalguni are also renowned for their love of junk food, extra-salted foods, fried foods, and salmon.
  • This behaviour is a result of Bhaga’s voracious appetite for everything, especially greasy food made of pure ghee.
  • The Phalguni is also referred to as the marriage star. However, Purva is associated with premarital sex and Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra is associated with marriage commitment. Still, natives of these Nakshatras not only strive for a strong bond in their relationship, but they are brilliant matchmakers.
  • If one needs someone to match them, then they should look for a Phalguni.
  • Sometimes, they even become professional matchmakers, not just in love and romance, but also in business.

Attributes of Purva Phalguni Nakshatra in Astrology

  • Spread from 13’20” to 26’40” Leo (Simha) (Simha).
  • It is also called the Bhagadaivata star. All majestic pleasure, prosperity, love, enjoyment, and sensual delight are caused by this Nakshatra.
  • The origin of creation signifies coming into being and development. Its closure means destruction.
  • The native, in personal, life succeeds in mastering the six impulses, especially the impulse of creativity, which also masters death.
  • Therefore, on the one hand, this star symbolises the joy of creation and enjoyment, and on the other hand, signifies desirelessness and asceticism.
  • On the one hand, it is the gateway to the creation and its basic seed. On the other hand, it aims at renunciation, dissolution, and a merger in ‘Brahma’.
  • Fame and eminence are the special features of this star. Poorva Phalguni and Uttara Phalguni are symbols of good fortune and luck.

Purva Phalguni Nakshatra’s characteristic

  • The Purva Phalguni Nakshatra is an aggressive or “ugra” Nakshatra. Such a sensual, sexual Nakshatra benefits from this quality of the Nakshatra, which is very different.
  • There is a fire that breathes within this Nakshatra, just like the chaos that Shiva created during the yagna of Daksha, despite the Nakshatra’s apparent creativity, sensuality, lust, sexuality, and social aspects.
  • On this Nakshatra day, activities end up being explosive and violent, resulting in disagreements.

Caste of the Phalguni Nakshatra Purva

  • Brahmins make up this Nakshatra’s caste.
  • The native has an extreme lust and passion for knowledge as well as for comprehending ancestral rituals and themes.
  • It is important to distinguish the native’s sexual nature from that of an airhead. One’s intelligence is unaffected by lust or sexual behavior.

Phalguni Nakshatra’s Purva Sound

  • With Nakshatra, Mo- pada 1, Taa- pada 2, Tee- pada 3, and Too- pada 4 sound plays a crucial role.
  • Brand is the name given to everything we say, do, buy, wear, and drive. If one knows their exact time of birth, they can look at their horoscope and see where the Leo sign, or Purva Phalguni, is located.
  • If someone has a Gemini ascendant, their third house is Leo; using names or brands that begin with such sounds is advantageous for travel, communication, sales, marketing, one’s own effects and performing arts, as well as for forming social circles.
