The 25th Nakshatra: POORVA BHADRAPADA.
The four quarters are ruled by:
Mangala (Mars) - the 1st quarter,
Shukra (Venus) - the 2nd quarter,
Buddha (Mercury) - the 3rd quarter,
and Chandra (Moon) - the 4th quarter.
Other aspects of this Nakshatra:
Purushartha (life's vector or motivation) is Artha.

spans from 20°0' in Kumbha (Aquarius) to 3°20' in Meena (Pisces). While the first three quarters
of this Nakshatra fall in the sign Kumbha (Aquarius), the last Nakshatra falls in the sign Meena (Pisces). While Shani (Saturn) rules Kumbha (Aquarius), Guru (Jupiter) rules Meena (Pisces) and the Nakshatra Poorva
Bhadrapada is ruled by Guru (Jupiter). Hence the outcome is the end result of a
combination of all these 3 planets, depending on the quarter of the Nakshatra.
A person born in
the first three quarters of this Nakshatra (natal sign being Kumbha (Aquarius) has a
slender, tall stature. Thee natives born in the last quarter (natal sign being Meena (Pisces)) have medium height with somewhat fleshy physique. For those born in the Meena (Pisces), a well placed Guru (Jupiter) indicates good fortune, but for those who are born
in the sign Kumbha (Aquarius), even a well placed Shani (Saturn), the lord of Kumbha (Aquarius) means that
the person has to put in reasonable efforts to get his share of the fortune.

follow under any circumstances.

following their own set of principles. Also they spend money in the most proper
way, avoiding any misuse of the same.

But in my personal experience, the native cannot derive full love and attention
of his mother, as she will be working. Naturally, being a working mother, she
is away most of the time and the native is automatically separated. Hence our
ancients who have written this dictum are also correct to the extent of
separation, but not to the extent of death. For causing death other planetary
affliction is also necessary and birth in this Nakshatra alone is not
One of the redeeming
