The symbol for this nakshatra is the latter half of the funeral cot that it shares with the nakshatra Purvabhadra. This nakshatra is also associated with fire purification and passion, but is less aggressive than the former star. The ruling deity, Ahir Bhudhanya, gives Uttarabhadra the desire to examine things at depth and explore the kundalini energy. Those born under this star are compassionate, virtuous, and drawn to humanitarian causes. They require solitude and time for contemplation, but must be cautious of laziness and isolation. Uttarabhadra is full of wisdom and determination, yet understands the necessity of patience in obtaining the highest achievement.
