Poorvabhadrapada – The Front Legs of the Deathbed
Poorvabhadrapada (20.00 Aquarius-3.20 Pisces) is governed by Aja Ekapad, the one-legged snake. Symbolic of the two-faced man, the energies of Poorvabhadrapada signify enhanced spiritual aspiration.
Denoted by a couple of stars, Poorvabhadrapada makes an almost perpendicular straight line to the belt of ellipsis at the intersection of Aquarius and Pisces. Poorvabhadrapada can be translated into ‘the previous with lucky feet’ or ‘the former with feet of a stool’ (Purvaprosthapada).
The very nature of Poorvabhadrapada is concerned with a sense of transformation and transition. The asterism is often denoted by the term ‘diabolical’ as debauchery, violence, macabre pursuits, untruths, moroseness and violence is ascribed to it. An intense nakshatra, Poorvabhadrapada manifests its negative energies through its egocentricity. Poorvabhadrapada aims to take in the understanding of things that are negative from an objective standpoint.
Poorvabhadrapada natives are persevering and sincere, despite lacking in wholesome pursuits. Often, they are prepared to scale any heights for realizing their goals. This is not very positive all the time since it indulges them in bad karma. The constellation identifies both with the persecutor and the persecuted, and hence most murderers and practitioners of homicides and genocides belong to this star. In a higher and evolved form, Poorvabhadrapada tend to seek self-mortification, and not the indignity of others.
The famous sage Vishwamitra of Hindu mythology is said to have exploited the energies of this nakshatra. Hence, a lot of sages till this day are prepared to undergo extreme penance for realizing their objectives. However, the basic nature of these natives is to keep their extremities and pursuits to themselves. Their overly grave countenance is marked by severity and nervousness, confronting others at the slightest instant, and behaving extremely cordially at gatherings.
Heavy metal rock concerts and the macabre attract Poorvabhadrapada. The evolved nature of this asterism teaches them to fight the bad which is demonstrated in creative artists and performers channeling the negative energies of their asterism through expression of their art. Natives of Poorvabhadrapada are often miserly and undergo phobia and perversion. Poorvabhadrapada finds expression through “yajamana shakti” or the power to elevate the evolutionary platform.
