The 26th Nakshatra: UTTARA BHADRAPADA.

The four quarters are ruled by:
Sūrya (Sun) - the 1st quarter,
Buddha (Mercury) - the 2nd quarter,
Shukra (Venus) - the 3rd quarter,
and Mangala (Mars) - the 4th quarter.

Other aspects of this Nakshatra:
The Purushardha (life's vector or motivation) is Kama.
Totem animal is Cow
Symbol - two people standing back to back or 2 legs at the back of
funeral bed.
Devata (Deity) -
Dosha - Pitta.

This Nakshatra spans from 3°20' to 16°40' in Meena (Pisces). While the wise planet Guru (Jupiter) rules this sign, the planet of patience, Shani (Saturn), rules the Nakshatra.

A male born in this sign is somewhat an innocent looking person, yet quite intelligent when it comes to business. He has the basic qualities to be a good collector of people, treating all as equal irrespective of their social status. He is a short-tempered person, but never likes to trouble others. A strong Guru (Jupiter) with a weak Shani (Saturn) in  horoscope indicates that all the positive aspects of personality are highlighted.

When the dual character of this sign is dominant, i.e. when the lord of sign, Guru (Jupiter), as well as the lord of the Nakshatra, Shani (Saturn) are placed in a duel sign, the native tends to undertake many assignments at the same time. These people also master many subjects simultaneously. In case of the natives who do not get the chance to get an official certificate of being educated, they posses reasonably good knowledge of any subject. These people are the real believers in the power of knowledge.

Because of their quest for knowledge, these people, even when they start form the lowest rung of the organizational chart, successfully rise to head their respective sections or even the organizations. These people are extremely versatile and do not like to spend their time idly. They tend to make a fortune at a place far away from their place of birth.

They enjoy good family life, but the second house in their chart needs to be properly aspected. They get the respect of their family members. These people are prone to suffer from mildly painful and yet not very dangerous problems like piles and fissures, hernia.

The females born in this Nakshatra have a stout physique and are prone to put on weight. They are charming, caring towards their family members and know how to manage the affairs of their house. They are adaptable; know how to carry on even in some of the most adverse circumstances.

Male Natives

1. Physical features: Most attractive and innocent looking person. There is an inherent magnetically force in his look. If he looks at a person with a mild smile, rest assure, that person will be his slave.

2. Character and general events: He keeps equal relationship with high and low people i.e. irrespective of the status of the person. He has a spot-less heart. He does not like to give troubles to others. The only drawback noticed in this native in the behavioral field is that temper is always on the tip of his nose. However, such short-temper is not of a permanent nature. He will not hesitate to sacrifice even his life to those who love him. At the same time once he is hurt he will become a lion. He has wisdom, knowledge, and personality.

He is expert in delivering attractive speeches. He is capable of vanquishing his enemies and attain fairly high position. He is sexually inclined always and desirous of being in the company of other sex

In the work field, he can shine well due to his extraordinary capacity and capability. Laziness is a remote question for him. Once he opts to undertake a job he cannot turn back till that job is completed. Even in the case of utter failure he is not desperate. If he is employed he will reach to the top. In most of the cases it has been noticed that even if this Nakshatra born persons are employed initially in the lower or middle level positions, they later on reach to a good position and they always receive reward and praise from others.

It has been noticed that his stability in life or even the slightest upward movement begins after his marriage. He starts his livelihood at a very young age say 18 or 19 years of age. He will have important changes in the professional field at his 19th, 21st, 28th, 30th, 35th and 42nd years.

4. Family life: While he keeps praising his father on the one side due to the prominent personality and religious rigidity of his father, he cannot virtually derive any benefit from his father. He leads a neglected childhood. He is normally subjected to a life away from his home town.

His married life will be full of happiness. He will be blessed to have a most suitable wife. His children also will be an asset, most obedient, understanding and respecting children. He will be blessed with grandchildren also. He is an ornament in his family.
