  • Act of sex with a Bharani person 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 person 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 Universe vs. the illusion you were living as a physical body.

  • You will notice such people love Samurai culture of code and love wearing ancient body armors.
  • The Bharani natives will have an interest in studying about Indian culture and history alongside for instance, about Mythology.
  • This interest comes due to the fact that bodies in their culture were mummified as they knew after death and rebirth the native will come and collect their belongings and their body.

  • If they are lawyers then last minute some paper work 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.”
