Purva Bhadrapada

Purva Bhadrapada

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Purva Bhadrapada (former beautiful foot) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. The Nakshatra is depicted as the front legs of a small bed or couch, and is ruled by the planet Jupiter at Aquarius 20° to Pisces 3°20’. A good time to do something dangerous or risky, one can expect to be better at reading people and more logical, while also being skeptical or worrisome. The deity Aja Ekapad presides over Purva Bhadrapada.
