Uttara Bhādrapadā or Uttṛṭṭāti (Devanagari: उत्तरभाद्रपदा) is the twenty-sixth nakshatra in Hindu astronomy, corresponding to γ Pegasi and α Andromedae.[1] It is said to be ruled by Shani, the deity identified with the planet Saturn. Under the beliefs of electional astrology, Uttara Bhādrapadā is a Fixed constellation, meaning that while it is prominent, it is a good time to build houses, found communities or engage in other activities related to permance, stabiltiy and structure.[2]

Symbolism

Uttara Bhādrapadā is represented by dualistic imagery, often two legs of a bed. Other common symbols include a two-headed man, or a pair of twins.[3] The Ahir Budhnya, a serpentine or draconian creature, is the deity which oversees Uttara Bhādrapadā.[4]

Characteristics

Jyotiṣa states that the constellation through which the moon is passing during the time of a person’s birth has an effect on the personality traits later in life.[5] The moon in Uttara Bhādrapadā indicates a person with good discipline and speaking and writing skills, who is cheerful, generous, self-sacrificing and psychic with deep insights. They generally have good wealth and inheritance and have a happy home life; but they like solitude and seclusion and can be lazy.

Under the ancient traditional Hindu principle of naming individuals according to their birthstar (see Jyotisha), the following Sanskrit syllables correspond with this Nakshatra, and would belong at the beginning of a first name:

  • Du (Devanagari: दु)
  • Jha (Devanagari: ज)
  • Tha (Devanagari: थ)
  • Da/Tra (Devanagari: ञ)[6]
