Nakshatra No 11. Purva Phalguni Nakshatra
Purva Phalguni Nakshatra people with an emphasis in the Lunar sign No 11, PurvaPhalguni, are carefree, attractive, sensual, affectionate, sociable, kind, generous and loyal; they have convincing ability and creativity. They are artistic, lazy and vain. They are needy in relationships. They value family but Love and lust feature largely in their nature, and wanting beauty and loveliness. They can attract good fortune and generous patrons or employers. This is the Nakshatra of happy marriage, lovers and romance (though Venus is debilitated in Leo’s Virgo Pada, which is PurvaPhalguni Pada or quarter 2).
Purva Phalguni is the 11th Nakshatra out of the 27 Nakshatras which are the powerfully declarative and beautiful 27 Lunar Signs of Vedic Astrology.
Purva Phalguni Nakshatra spans 13°20′ – 26°40′ of the vedic sign of Leo or Simha.
Purva Phalguni’s Symbol: The front legs of a bed. Also, a fireplace.
The Nakshatra Deity: Bhaga Aditya, god of conjugal bliss and prosperity, also Luck. Brings Fortune and Marriage.
Love, sexuality, prosperity, light-heartedness, creativity. The God, Bhaga, and his wife and sons/daughters: The Vedic combination of pleasure and happiness with Spirituality.
Purva Phalguni Nakshatra relates to rest, relaxing and enjoyment. The god Bhaga belonging to this constellation spreads prosperity in every area of life. The conjugal bliss that has to do with Purva Phalguni is also symbolised by open fire, which is another symbol for this constellation. It represents a warm family atmosphere. Purva Phalguni Nakshatra symbolises a resting-point. However, Purva Phalguni people are also are passionate and sensuous, and this may be at odds with their desire for domesticity. They are creative, educated and intelligent and they are ambitious and hard workers to achieve their desires. Because of their Pitta, they can burn out quickly, and their vital spark can make them aggressive. The sexual creative fire burns brightly in them.
This is not a constellation of violent transformation processes, but of wanting a simple domestic life without too many disruptions and their creativity and socialisation can actually harm the domesticity. A religious attitude has to become visible in one’s every day routine. By tradition, the fulfilment of family responsibilities is considered to be an important religious obligation.
Amongst other things, the god Bhaga involves eroticism, but in this case, this is less about eroticism as a transcendental experience, but more about the enjoyment of it. Eroticism as a way of reproduction is also emphasised in this constellation. Through eroticism, life comes into being and the family is formed.
It is related to Tamas – motivated to remove difficulties or avoid trouble.
