Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra: General
The Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra, is known as “the latter one who possesses lucky feet” which speaks to it’s relationship with the preceding Nakshatra Purva Bhadrapada. The Uttara, is represented in the Pegasus constellation by 2 stars in Pegasus‘ back legs and together the Purva Bhadrapada (recall 2 stars in Pegasus’ front legs) and Uttara Bhadrapada create the complete funeral cot. Thus the Uttara is symbolized by the later half of the death bed.
The correlation to the death cot speaks to the essence of this cosmic region, all three of the birth star’s associated with Pisces and the zodiac sign itself, are related to passage from the physical world. It is said that Pegasus carries the soul to the other side and the ancient Jyotish astrologers referred to the constellation as a funeral cot, thus establishing the connection with Pegasus and moving spirit to the other side.
A coiled snake, representative of Kundalini energy, is also used to represent this arena as it here that the Kundalini energy completes its awakening and charges all the energy centers (chakras) in preparation for the transition to the spirit world. The Uttara Bhadra is governed by the compassionate deity, Ahir Bhudhanya. This secretive god watches over the cosmic ocean and works with Shiva to protect the stellar trinity.

Typically spiritual folks, they like to volunteer and contribute to community projects. Their attractive personalities are warm and engaging and they appear to be much more innocent than their contemporaries.
