Here is a presentation of the 25th Nakshatra: PurvaBhadra Nakshatra number 25 (video below)
The Nakshatras depict our realities, our Mind and our emotional natures in a magical and dream time way that is pre-solar, pre-logical and pre-linear, and in a way that is hugely accurate, powerful and meaningful. It is such an eye-opener when you know and understand the nature of the Nakshatra in which each of your planets fall in your Vedic birth chart. Once you know this, you can manage your life better, purify, heal and empower yourself.

The Devata or Ruling Deity of PurvaBhadra Nakshatra is a complex expression of death, destruction and the path to rebirth. He is sometimes: Aja Ekapada – The One-Footed Goat: a form of Rhudra, god of Storms. Thunder God, and therefore a form of Shiva. Cleansing Fire. And the name PurvaBhadra means Hearse or a vehicle for the transport of Fire: The spiritual power of Fire. But PurvaBhadra is also associated is the Fire Dragon (Ajaikapat) – He and his brother the water dragon, Ahirbudhnya (the deity of UttaraBhadra) are seen as brother, the sons of Visvakarma, the Heavenly Architect: they are the serpent path to transcendence: rebirth through the destructive storm.
PurvaBhadra is a Krura or Fierce/cCruel Nakshatra. It’s energy is unique, eccentric and mystical. It’s passionate, transformational, extreme, radical, indulgent. Impetuous and opinionated. Must follow their own path: to Hell or to Heaven. Highly strung. These people are idealist, non-conformists, power to influence others, speaker, orator, demagogue. They are intense. There’s passion, ambition, fascination with the dark side of life, transformation, fire, warmth. Motivated to fulfill their Rajas desires. Strongly sexual – can be dark. Fierce but in a way benevolent. Sacrifice has to be undertaken for a Higher Cause. Motivated to make a difference to the world. Independent and self-reliant. Sincere and hard-working, they can achieve deep philosophical wisdom. At their best these people are humane, hopeful philosophical, truthful, charitable, liberal, systematic and polite.
PurvaBhadra Nakshatra people are very active: These people can rush into immature mistakes, and lay heavy, even violent, even ‘head-banging’ trips on others. They can hold extreme views and Fundamentalism. Escapist, iconoclastic. Angry, impulsive and anxious. They need to calm their lower self. At their lower manifestation, these people are critical, miserly, irreligious and mentally violent or unstable. Persecuting. Plotting, violent and criminal. This side of PurvaBhadra can like Heavy Metal clubs and fetishes and macabre dark tantric rituals. The dark side of art. They often coerce others into the spiritual insights and pathways. These people often have a Dark Side which is concealed from the world. And they can be simply horribly two-faced! They can have wavering or unstable mind and nefarious. They can be fearful, nervous, cynical and eccentric. They can be full of sadness and problems. Prone to accidents.
PurvaBhadrapada people have lots of energy and they have to direct it carefully. There is a risk that the energy is used for self-centred goals. Another danger might be that the individual might not know how to handle it. In that case the energy can manifest itself as rage or as ways of ambition that can never be satisfied (whenever one goal is achieved, there is an immediate search for the next goal). They need to learn how to deal with large amounts of life energy and to focus these on a particular and higher-nature goal: focused on what is important for inner growth.
PurvaBhadras need to learn to Seek balance and transformation. At their best, the nature of Purvabhadra is Lightning and Metaphysical Inspiration: Purva Bhadra is like lightning striking us from heaven, giving us a glimpse the eternal. this lightning strike of inspiration that connects us to the heavens and of course they must not mistake the glimpse for arrival at the actual goal. At its best, PurvaBhadra’s lightning spark of creativity takes us to a more metaphysical and timeless spiritual place.
