Characteristics of Purva Phalguni Nakshatra in Astrology

  • The yoni animal of Purva Phalgun Nakshatra is a female rat.
  • The native‚Äôs sexual drive and drive for pleasure are enormous because female rats can mate 500 times in 6 hours.
  • The story of Purva Phalguni is about Bhaga. He is the God of good fortune, material bliss, sex, lust, love, romance and rest.
  • He also brings in family inheritance.
  • The story goes that, when Daksha was doing a yagna, he invited every God to attend except Shiva, who was one of his daughter‚Äôs husband.
  • Shiva was not invited, especially due to Sati marrying him.
  • Sati committed suicide, which irked Shiva. Virabhadra came and destroyed the yagna and blinded Bhaga, the deity of Purva Phalguni.
  • This is why Purva Phalguni natives spend money blindly, and also, they get their eyes injured at some point, even if it‚Äôs a pink eye or mosquito bite around the eye area.
  • Purva Phalguni natives do not like staying around yagnas, cutting onions, for too long as their eyes start to itch easily.
  • Bhaga is a party animal, having sex parties, orgies, drinking and countless mates.
  • For Bhaga, sex and sexual expression was a way to experience divinity.
  • He is known to be brothers with Varuna and Indra.
  • All three brothers are known for partying, drinking and enjoying everything heavens has to offer.
  • The symbolism of this Nakshatra is a bed and fireplace.
  • This symbol is really known for the back legs of the bed, where the head rests.
  • When we think of a bed and fireplace, it‚Äôs the coziest place and perhaps the most romantic spot.
  • This is exactly what this Nakshatra energy represents.
  • It is about rest, sleep, love making and enjoying one‚Äôs time.
  • Purva Phalguni natives love sleeping on bed; they love sleeping in the middle of the day, wanting to oversleep in the morning, working from the bed, eating from the bed; pretty much whatever can be done sitting on a table, they rather do it on the bed.
  • Most of the time, jugs of water or many glasses of water near the bedside can also be found, as the opposite sign is Aquarius, the water bearer.
  • Purva Phalguni natives are also known to love eating salmon, extra salted foods, fried foods or junk food.
  • This habit stems from Bhaga‚Äôs big appetite for everything, especially food made of pure ghee, which means oily food.
  • The Phalguni is also known as the star of marriage. However, sex before marriage is seen with Purva and commitment of marriage through¬†Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra. Still, natives of these Nakshatras not only strive for a strong bond in their relationship, but they are brilliant matchmakers.
  • If one needs someone to match them, then they should look for a Phalguni.
