Bharani Nakshatra in Astrology | Characteristics, Padas & Remedies

Natives born in Bharani Nakshatra are strong, seek happiness through physical activity, are competitive, athletic, growth-oriented, pushing limits, hard-working, resilient, do not quit at the mercy of passions, engaging in desires, attracting the opposite sex, naturally sexual, indulgent, romantic, creating life (children), loyal to loved ones, and take care of the family.

Bharani Nakshatra in Vedic Astrology is one of the Adhomukhi Nakshatras (or the Nakshatras which have their mouths downwards). In these nakshatras, things related to tanks, wells, temples, mining, digging, etc. can be auspiciously begun and performed.

Symbol: The Yoni 
Yoni is the symbol of Bharani Nakshatra. Yoni means the source. Another meaning of Yoni is animal species.

DeityThe Yama 
The deity of Bharani Nakshatra is the God of death, the Yama, and the symbol is Yoni. Death is an indication of this cycle’s end, and the Yoni suggests the next birth. The source of the baby is a mother, and therefore this symbol suggests the mother’s need for the baby.

Characteristics of Bharani Nakshatra in Astrology

  • The animal of Bharani Nakshatra is the elephant. The elephant is big, bulky, huge, and when elephant runs or stampede, the ground shakes.
  • An elephant has an excellent memory. Hence, the natives of Bharani Nakshatra will never forget what right or wrong you did to them.
  • They can take either revenge on you or hug you 30 years later if you meet them by chance.
  • Elephant is a family animal, and they have partners, children, grandparents, aunts, uncles etc.
  • When one dies, they all come to the burial ground because elephants actually know how to dig the ground to bury their dead family and relatives on rare occasions.
  • It is pretty much an animal with a human heart.
  • They can consume 50 gallons of water and 200-600 pounds of food per day.
  • They are very protective about everyone they know, not just their own young ones.
  • Elephants are also known for their beautiful tusks.
  • A Bharani native is extremely protective of their family and children.
  • They lash out at anyone trying to come after them for any type of reason.
  • They usually take time to do their tasks, and in that, they do not like to be disturbed, else they get irritated.
  • Once you do anything wrong to a Bharani native, they will remind you of what you did to them even after 30 years. They can be your best friend and a close family member at times, but they will give a hint that they didn’t forget what you did to them when they were 8 years old.
  • Elephants have tusks, which are their teeth; hence, Bharani natives will have quite long teeth and usually some issues with the teeth, which is karma due to what has been happening with an elephant in nature for many years, where people are hurting them for their tusks.
  • This translate into Bharani natives even having a botched job with a dentist at one point in life where they would have to do several procedures to get their teeth correct.
  • The element of Bharani is the fire of Yoni. This fire is the fire of destined birth.
  • It’s the fire of sexual expression when the fire is at its maximum.
  • Bharani natives are quite restrained in the early part of their life, but when they come into their sexual maturity, they blossom much faster and catch to those who have already blossomed before them.
  • The Yoni is the gateway of birth and not just a physical private part of a woman.
  • The other symbolism is the boat, which takes the native into the realm of ancestors on the other side.
  • Act of sex with a Bharani native is like an anchor for the opposite sex.
  • They feel fulfilled and attached to the symbolic boat. But due to the devata of Bharani, one usually has some issues with the womb either before or after the birth of a child if Bharani is influenced or aspected by a malefic.
  • The fire of creation shows a Bharani native is fulfilled through having a child. The womb is the result of Yoni’s presence. The devata of this Nakshatra is the graceful Yama.
  • He’s the one who takes you in his cradle on his black buffalo to show you the reality of the Universe vs the illusion you were living as a physical body.
  • Knowing these small facts about Yama, we see that the native is attracted to death, and loves to know what is on the other side.
  • They even go through near-death and out of body experiences.
  • Bharani natives always get skin issues in the leg, some form of injury to the leg in their lifetime.
  • Knowing that Yama is the one who judges us after our death, the Bharani native always judges people and loves being in the place of either being a lawyer or fights for injustice or being in a human resource position where they deal with legal policies, rules and regulations.
  • Such natives are also attracted to pathology, undertaker and gynaecologist.
  • Since Yama took a stance against his stepmother, a Bharani native will have a hard time getting along with his mother, especially if she is a stepmother and will also rebel against his father for not seeing what was happening with them.
  • Yama is about keeping the order in the Universe, following rules and laws.
  • This can also translate into following a code, whether code of ethics, code of God, cult or government.
  • You will notice that such people love the Samurai culture of code and love wearing ancient body armours.
  • The Bharani natives will be interested in studying Indian culture and history alongside, for instance, Mythology.
  • This interest comes due to the fact that bodies in their culture were mummified as they knew after death and rebirth, the native would come and collect their belongings and their body.
  • Since these cultures dealt with death in such a mystical and beautiful way, it only relates to honouring Yama.
  • The ritual of death is one of the most important rituals your body can experience while on this planet.
  • Whatever culture honour death, it honours Yama.
  • Shamanism is a big thing with the Bharani natives.
  • They either take an interest in becoming one or make friends with modern-day shamans.
  • A Shaman is a person who connects with the dead souls and works in the world of death.
  • Yama, due to his injury on his leg and his brother, Shani, who gets debilitated in Bharani, both are slow movers.
  • Since Yama gets delayed due to obstacles in his path, the Bharani natives, too, get delayed in their undertakings and any type of work they take on.
  • Such people, even if promptly, somehow always are delayed in que.
  • Sun being the hottest and biggest thing in the sky, shows no one can look into his eyes, or else they go blind.
  • Bharani natives always, at some point in early childhood, do not look at their father eye-to-eye.
  • They always either look elsewhere or close their eyes.
  • They also tend to have very gloomy eyes or eyes with a shadow of darkness around it.
  • You can easily spot Bharani eyes.
  • Being the son of Sun, Yama has a great authority, which transpires into human behavior.
  • Bharani native is all about having the authority.
  • They sometimes may not even listen to others because they feel their authority is being questioned.
  • There is always some minor or major issue that occurs at the last minute in whatever task they try to take.
  • If they start shooting a movie, then on the scheduled day, they would encounter rain on the location set.
  • If they are lawyers, then last minute, some paperwork or witness might go missing.
  • Yama is about taking life, taking the soul from human bio-mechanical suit, and transporting it into its true form on the other side. We can see this same behavior in Bharani children where they would say phrases like “all done, I am finished, goodbye, I am done with you, I am finished with you.”

  • The sense of restraint is also Yamas’ gift; he is the Lord of Dharma, a stern disciplinarian, a ruthless expositor of truth, and a refuge for kings and law-abiding subjects.
