Symbol: The Snake:
Uttara Bhadrapada represents the coolness of water. The snake that dwells in the depths represents wisdom. However, the snake might be tempted to use that wisdom for dubious snakey purposes.
The passivity of darkness is the mysterious source from which all forms of creation have arisen, and thus Ahir Budhnya is the deep ocean snake representing the merging of consciousness into the deep sea of eternity: The serpent wisdom. However, just as the serpent needs to come to the surface to breathe, so Uttara Bhadra cannot remain in water (spirituality) forever; it needs to periodically connect with the real/manifest world.
This nakshatra straddles opposite aspects of human nature. The snake represents poisons, but can show the ability to deal with them. The cow personifies caring, nurturing good nature. The snake sheds its skin through dealing with painful life experiences, whereas the cowherd nurtures the herd.
Ahir Budhnya is the son of Vishwakarma, the celestial architect (see Chitra nakshatra). Here the architect is laying the foundations for the next life time by building better consciousness and achievment now.
Comparison with the preceding Nakshatra: Nx 25: PurvaBhadra:
Action undertaken by UttaraBhadra will always be more considered, but with PurvaBhadra hot-tempered actions occur. the Purva and Uttara parts of this constellation are unusual in that they do not represent the same, but in fact opposites. Purva is hot, driven and thoughtless, while Uttara is cool and waiting. Purva is fire and Uttara is water. Jupiter rules PurvaBhadra; Saturn rules UttaraBhadra.
