Characteristics of Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra in Astrology

  • The yoni animal of Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra is the female cow.
  • Female cows are still known to be the most prosperous creatures in a household, family, farm, or dairy farm because of their ability to give milk through which we get butter, cheese, paneer, yoghurt, etc.
  • Cows are peaceful creatures and mind their own business.
  • They do not attack, plan, scheme and simply want to be left alone. Uttara Bhadrapada natives are just like cows.
  • They are not as aggressive and fiery as the Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra, and they simply want to deal with things in peace and quiet.
  • They are nourishers who want always to be surrounded by nature like a mountain cow.
  • Cows can be extremely dangerous, and they can actually storm towards anyone and hit with their horn if they sense harm from someone to their calf, which is the protective nature of any mother.
  • Just like Uttara Phalguni, which is directly opposite to this Nakshatra, between 3-10 degrees of Pisces, the natives of this Nakshatra require a mate and would like to be with someone.
  • They are always looking for someone to have their calf, but this Nakshatra is far more feminine than the Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra.
  • The reason why Uttara Bhadrapada is considered as Laxmi Nakshatra is due to the giving nature of the cow.
