This Nakshatra 'Ugra' or fierce Nakshatra as Bharani is also associated with Maa Kaali, a form of Maa Parvati, giving it an 'Ugra' Nakshatra ability. And it also denotes the womb. Therefore, people who have their focal planets in this Nakshatra can experience the coziness and warmth of a womb. However, if it has negative influences on itself, it also signifies restlessness and imprisonment. 


Further, this Nakshatra also stands for scandalous pregnancies, single parenting, and being foster kings. Now read its Mythology to understand this more aptly.


Who Associates with Bharani Nakshatra?

The Diety associated with Bharani is Yama, who is also known as Dharamraj or Diety of righteousness. If you see the Dharamraj Yama picture, you could see he holds a staff in his hand. This holding of staff signifies that he wants all to adhere to the Dharma, or he has his ways to teach lessons.


Dharamraj rules South direction and oversees death. This means that the old will give way to the new. One more thing to understand is that Dharamraj Yama was the first mortal to descend to the heavens. Dharamraj also is associated with the ancestors.

  2. Practice Dharma by observing what wrongs are being done continuously.
  3. Give due respect to the ancestors. There may be a potent 'Pitra Dosha' ascribed to the house/planet ruled by Bharani.
