Bharani (or the Bearer) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Symbolized by a female sex organ, this Nakshatra can be found from Aries 13°20’ to 26°40’. Yama, the god of death or the setting sun, presides, and the planet Venus rules Bharani. This sign implies a “cutting” energy, and is a good time to do unpleasant but necessary activities; people may be more mentally quick and spontaneous, while also exhibiting tendencies towards amorality or fickleness during this time.

—Pramela Thiagesan
