Uttharaphalguni – The Marriage Bed
Uttharaphalguni (26.40 Leo-10.00 Virgo) is ruled by Bhaga, the God of Happiness. It is the 12th asterism and is presided over by the Sun. Uttharaphalguni indicates the desire for union, and organization through the ends achieved by doing so.
Uttharaphalguni identifies with the Hindu month of phalguna, or spring and hence evokes all the characteristics of the season. This nakshatra resembles the back legs of a bed and it translates into ‘the latter, ‘the latter reddish one’ or ‘the latter fig tree’.
On an average, the nature of Purvaphalguni applies to Uttharaphalguni as well. To know more, it is best to understand the behavioral patterns of the Sun or the king of the planets. The names that are traditionally given to the Sun, ‘illuminator’, ‘the intense one’, ‘the cruel and the sharp one’, ‘one who bestows prosperity’ are milestones in indicating the functionality of Uttharaphalguni. The Sun is a sattwic planet which refers to its evolutionary aspect. It is the aspect of goodness that is basically helpful, charitable and philanthropic.
The Sun is the only graha that generates light of its own, thus being the most independent of all. This characteristic is embodied by Uttharaphalguni which rather maintains its individuality instead of associating itself with the crowd. Rising above mass consciousness, the benevolent aspect of Uttharaphalguni is compounded with a stern side. It is thus pompous and also despotic. The common warlike qualities shared by the Sun and Uttharaphalguni are fearlessness, aggression, valor and wrath.
Uttharaphalguni is the point of blending of the energies of the Sun and Mercury, and hence the natives are endowed with discrimination and judgmental faculties. Unhesitating in its dealings, Uttharaphalguni assists the native in self-expression and creative pursuits. Other solar traits take in dignity, nobility and even megalomania, in its negative connotation.
Considering the devious aspect of the solar energy, Uttharaphalguni like Mercury is a trickster. In fact, when in the wrong, they may appear perfectly innocent of the error with a calm disposition that often makes the contender think twice. Uttharaphalguni stands for kindness towards friends and represents ‘chayani shakti’ which refers to the power to accumulate and prosper. They are flexible and nimble in appearance.
