"Viṣṇu as Varaha. In this third incarnation, Viṣṇu appeared as the boar, Varaha, who is depicted in his most renowned story rescuing the earth goddess, Bhudevi, from the sea-demon Hiranyaksha.
She is shown as a fragment of the earth, perched on Varaha's tusks and replete with animals and buildings. The artist has taken great pride in including a wealth of detail such as a temple dedicated to Śiva with a fluttering red banner, while among the animals roaming the hilly landscape he has depicted a cow, a symbolic representation of the Earth goddess. This painting shows the climax of the incident: Varaha has just slain his adversary with his formidable mace. Other attributes that Varaha holds in his hands are the wheel, the conch shell and the lotus."

Uttarāṣāḍha Nakshatra Meanings
Psycho-socially compatible with Uttarāṣāḍha * Vishva
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 Uttarāṣāḍha * Vishva
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 Uttarāṣāḍha * Vishva
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 Uttarāṣāḍha * Vishva
Nakshatra of Shukra = materialistic, accumulating, sensual Shukra 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.

|QUOTATION from Dennis Harness, The Nakshatras: The Lunar Mansions of Vedic Astrology
"21. Uttara Ashadha: The Universal Star
[Sagittarius 26 40 to Capricorn 10 00 ]
Uttara Ashadha translates as later victory . The symbols are an elephant s tusk. The elephant tusk is associated with Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. Another symbol is planks of a bed signifying security, rest, and peace. The main deities are the ten Vishvadevas, such as Vasu [goodness] , Satya [truth] , Kratru [will power] , Kama [desire] and Kala [time] .
This nakshatra is ruled by the powerful Sun. The shakti is the power for unchallengeable victory.
These natives have the humanitarian vision to see all races as equal. Abraham Lincoln's Moon resided in this lunar mansion.
This asterism has a manushya, or human temperament with a primary motivation toward moksha, or spiritual liberation.
The animal symbol is a male mongoose, which has no female counterpart, reflecting the independence and, sometimes, loneliness associated with this nakshatra."
Shakti of the Uttarāṣāḍha Nakshatra
commentary by David Frawley , Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra
"The Universal Gods desired, "May we win a victory that can never be lost."
One who makes the appropriate offering to the Universal Gods, to Ashadha,
Uttarāṣāḍha is a competitive Nakshatra that causes us to seek great achievements ,
One succeeds by virtue of one' s broad connections."
Indis Giaca Jackfruit from the journals of Jesuit Priest [Michał Piotr Boym] traveling in China c. 1656
Vocabulary = Uttarāṣāḍha-Vaizva
aṣāḍha = not to be overcome, invincible
Ruled by Surya
No matter Surya's rashi or bhava, for the Uttarāṣāḍha-born, Surya plays a definitive role usually involving occult matters  and often pouring light into what had been an obscure, lightless place. [8 discovery] .
Pada 2-3-4 have a particular challenge regarding the role of divine light intelligence [Surya] within their respectable, responsible Makara personality. The lagnesha = materialistic, structuring, socially conformist Shani.
Unfortunately, strictly systematic Shanaicarya lives in perpetual animosity with brilliantly creative, individualistic, regal divine Surya ruler of Uttarāṣāḍha.
Pada-1 within Dhanus
is normally involved in matters of the dharma-sthana in its capacity as 5th-from-5th. There are associations with royalty, celebrity, drama, and promulgation of theories, ideologies, and philosophical doctrines supporting global humanistic high culture via a highly charismatic personality.
Pada 2-3-4 within Makara
signals a lawful mystic connected to and directed by a hidden divine intelligence [Surya activates -8 ] but intending to create a social institution such as a religious order, institution or corporation which would be informed by this radiant mystical insight.
Pada 2-3-4 = frequently uncomfortable with their occult identity. They may be persecuted politically due to Surya and often feel harassed. They may seek sanctuary in monasteries, convents, or distant outposts. Prison also offers sanctuary.
Because Surya activates randhrasthana-8 counted from the Makara indriya-lagna, Uttarāṣāḍha pada 2-3-4 are distinguished by their affiliation with catastrophic change, revolution, sudden identity upheaval, and other disasters-provoking-transformation both social and natural.
Social-material outcome depends intensively upon the position of randhresha-8 Surya which delivers that occult inner light.
May attempt to start or be pushed into starting some variety of hierarchical organization [Makara] of which one is, typically, the controversial yet charismatic center [Surya].
After the departure of the charismatic Uttarāṣāḍha heart-core personality, the organization is likely to ossify [Makara] into a legalistic and anti-transformative machine.
If a political group would attack Uttarāṣāḍha's beliefs , no matter how important the professional or religious goal might be, Uttarāṣāḍha may feel a need to leave an environment wherein one cannot Win. [Surya vs Shani]
Surya-ruled Uttarāṣāḍha is particularly self-directed [Ravi] in its pursuit of the cause.
urya-ruled Uttarāṣāḍha cannot tolerate mishandling of the mission by those who do not fully understand the work. Issues may arise when, instrumentally, the support of mishandlers may be temporarily needed to accomplish the goal. For this reason, without careful political management, the psychically-attuned Makara portions may become exiled or persecuted.
Iswara * Utaraztha * Visve-deva * Uthiradaam * Aadi
For Uttarāṣāḍha births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Iswara, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Nunki. Their purpose is to express the radiant clear light of truth in an orderly, institutional framework.
Dhanus Pada-1 can show Brihaspati's rulership of 1-embodiment + 4-cultural foundations. nakshatra-pati Surya + Guru enjoy high-compatibility yang patterns which stimulate creativity and grant charismatic authority.
Pada-1 tends to be paternalistic, politically savvy, self-referential to the point of self-righteousness, and generous of spirit. Iconic and inspirational teachers of the patriarchal lineages are found here. Assess the role of Brihaspati to determine the degree of optimism and alignment with the prevailing doctrine. A woman born in Pada-1 is likely to teach- preach via her husband. Yet, if she is able to obtain patronage, she may act independently [Surya].
Makara-pada 2-3-4 express the tension between structural Shani and solipsistic nakshatra-pati Surya. From the Makara indriya-lagna, Surya becomes the revelatory, illuminating randhresha. Thus pada 2-3-4 = mystical and gender-neutral [Shani].
Pada 2-3-4 demonstrate respect for age and orderly governance. Yet, their purpose is visionary [Surya]. Psychics and seers are found here. Depending on the vigor of Shani, hierarchical institutions may come to surround their initiatory teachings.. A woman born in Pada-2-3-4 may be a spiritual healer in her own right. Her emotional dedication to the lifepartner's wellbeing arises from Chandra = yuvati-pati.
Themes of clairsentient vision, lawful transformation, and prophecy may contextualize Ishwara's terrestrial experience. Also applies to Chandra in Uttarāṣāḍha.
