QUOTATION from Dennis Harness

"12. Uttara Phalguni: The Star of Patronage

(Leo 26:40 to Virgo 10:00)

The symbol for this service oriented lunar mansion is a healing bed or two legs of a cot.

This is the"social worker" nakshatra who is always helping the friend in need. They possess great skills in the healing arts and counseling fields.

These natives have a manushya or human temperament, while their primary motivation is moksha or spiritual liberation. The deity is Aryaman, the God of Patronage and son of Aditi, the Cosmic Mother.

The shakti associated with this asterism is the power of giving prosperity thru marriage".

The ruling planet is the Sun and reflects the ability to shine their healing light on those with whom they come into contact."

  • "The patron and the bosom-friend; favor, kindness and fruition." ~~ Roebuck, The Circle of Stars, p.107


COMPATIBILITY

  • Applies to nakshatra of radical lagna AND nakshatra of Chandra. For emotional relationships, nakshatra of Chandra is more influential on compatibility and ease of interaction.

Psycho-socially compatible with Uttaraphalguni *Aryaman

Nakshatra of Surya * center-stage, sparklingly exceptional, brightly self-reflexive. These splendorous pairs bask in the glowing center of attention. They are often found in political, entertainment, gambling, creative, and celebrity environments.

Nakshatra of Chandra * matrikaraka caretaking Chandra's rhythmic, parenting, routinized style provides a companionable balance to pitrikaraka visionary Surya's confident, outgoing energy. These pairs can thrive as parents following a traditional division of labor. As a couple, the Chandra personality takes the homefront while the Surya mate manages their public affairs.

Nakshatra of Brihaspati * Guru and Surya are mutual mitra-graha = best friends joined in a quest to enlighten the cosmos. Brihaspati expands the humanistic worldview and Surya brightens the intellect.

Nakshatra of Mangala * Kuja and Surya are mutual mitra-graha = best friends joined in a quest to energize the cosmos. Mangala leads the conquest of new worlds and Surya shines the bright light of divinity.


Psycho-socially neutral with Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman

Nakshatra of Budha * mercantile, conversational, collaborative. Budha likes Surya more than Surya likes Budha, but this pair is generally neutral and there is no serious impedance to their interactions. In relationships, Surya takes a more decisive role whereas Budha acts more like a interpreter, teammate, or sibling.


Psycho-socially uneasy with Uttaraphalguni * Aryaman

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu * whether highly exciting (Rahu) or deeply observing (Ketu) the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles are generally antithetical to Surya's radiating mission. The nodal shadows block Surya's ability to emanate individuality and willpower. These pairings follow incommensurable agendas.


Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Uttaraphalguni =

Nakshatra of Zukra = materialistic, accumulating, sensual Zukra is all about partnership, pairing, two-ness, cooperation, contract, sharing. Surya is all about oneness, nonpareil, incomparability, individuality, undivided attention. These two agendas are deeply contradictory and often mutually resentful.

Nakshatra of Shani * materialistic, structuring, socially conformist Shani is in perpetual animosity with brilliantly creative, individualistic, regal divine Surya. From Ravi's perspective, dark and punitive Shani is a deeply adversarial mutual arch-enemy * ati-shatru-graha.

Shakti of Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra

commentary by Pandit David Frawley

"Aryaman desired, "May I become the lord of the animals."

One who makes the appropriate offering to Aryaman , to the Phalgunis,

  • he becomes the lord of the animals.

Those born under Uttara Phalguni seek colleagues and followers in order to help them in their causes,

  • which are generally noble in nature (at least to them)."

She is efficient and adept at managing her home and her domestic life."

BPL commentary Like its two sister Surya-ruled Nakshatra Krittika and Uttara-ashadha, Ravi-ruled Uttara Phalguni signals

a maker of amusements, an entertainer, a charismatic ethno-religious leader , or an iconic, regal, bright-shining celebrity politician.

In the Kanya pada 2-3-4, Uttaraphalguni is demanding of authoritative center-stage roles; nevertheless one is significantly involved in behind the scenes activities

In the Kanya pada 2-3-4, Uttaraphalguni allows a specialization in research, enclosed environments, distant lands, and creations (Surya) of the imagination

Games, drama, center-stage, amusements:

  • Walt Disney, PlayBoy 1926- publisher Hugh Hefner , Harrison Ford, Warren Beatty

Caution

The Kanya portion pada-2-3-4 may have an issue with accountability for selfish acts committed in clandestine, invisible, or private environments. Typically it is Surya's male power, paternalistic fatherly power, which gets abused.

If Rahu, Shani, or Mangala occupy Simha-12 * particularly self-elevating, self-appropriating Rahu-12 * potential for misuse of power via the entitlements of regal privilege in the bedroom or the sanctuary space. Accountable to no authority but the Self.
