Sati got married to Rudhra but Daksha was not in favour of this wedding. Once Daksha organized aYadnya and invited all the gods but Rudhra and Sati were excluded from the Dak-sha Yadnya. Sati still came and was insulted by Daksha. Due to this Sati got upset and she jumped in the Yadnya Kunda or fire pit.

Characteristics of Purva Phalguni Nakshatra in Astrology
The yoni animal of this nakshatra is a female rat.
As discussed in Magha nakshatra, female rats can mate 500 times in 6 hours.
The sexual drive and drive for pleasure is enormous.
The story of Phalguni is about Bhaga. He’s a 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’s husband.
Shiva was not invited, especially due to Sati marrying him.
Sati committed suicide, which irked Shiva and 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’s a pink eye or mosquito bite around the eye area.
Purva Phalguni especially do not like staying around yagnas, cutting onions, for too long as their eyes start to itch easily.
When we talk about Bhaga, he is a party animal, having sex parties, orgies, drinking and having 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 party, 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’s the coziest place and perhaps the most romantic spot.
You get a feeling of wintertime in snowy mountains with your beloved.
This is exactly what this nakshatra energy represents.
It is about rest, sleep, love making and enjoying one’s time.
Purva Phalguni people love sleeping on bed, they love sleeping in middle of the day, wanting to oversleep in the morning, working from the bed, eat from the bed; pretty much whatever can be done sitting on a table they rather do it on bed.
Most of the time you will also find jugs of water or many glasses of water near the bedside as the opposite sign is Aquarius, the water bearer.
Phalgunis also are known to love eating salmon, extra salted foods, fried foods or junk food.
This habit stems from Bhaga’s big appetite for everything, especially food made of pure ghee, which means oily food.
The Phalguni is also known as the star of marriage, although sex before marriage is seen with Purva and commitment of marriage is seen through Uttara but such nakshatra individual not only strive for a strong bond in their relationship but they are brilliant match makers.
If you need someone to match you then look for a Phalguni.
Sometimes they even become professional matchmakers, not just in love and romance but also in business.
