Poorvabhadrapada – The Front Legs of the Deathbed

Poorvabhadrapada (20.00 Aquarius-3.20 Pisces) is governed by Aja Ekapad, the one-legged snake. Symbolic of the two-faced man, the energies of Poorvabhadrapada signify enhanced spiritual aspiration.

Denoted by a couple of stars, Poorvabhadrapada makes an almost perpendicular straight line to the belt of ellipsis at the intersection of Aquarius and Pisces. Poorvabhadrapada can be translated into ‘the previous with lucky feet’ or ‘the former with feet of a stool’ (Purvaprosthapada).

Behavioral Characteristics

The very nature of Poorvabhadrapada is concerned with a sense of transformation and transition. The asterism is often denoted by the term ‘diabolical’ as debauchery, violence, macabre pursuits, untruths, moroseness and violence is ascribed to it. An intense nakshatra, Poorvabhadrapada manifests its negative energies through its egocentricity. Poorvabhadrapada aims to take in the understanding of things that are negative from an objective standpoint.

Poorvabhadrapada natives are persevering and sincere, despite lacking in wholesome pursuits. Often, they are prepared to scale any heights for realizing their goals. This is not very positive all the time since it indulges them in bad karma. The constellation identifies both with the persecutor and the persecuted, and hence most murderers and practitioners of homicides and genocides belong to this star. In a higher and evolved form, Poorvabhadrapada tend to seek self-mortification, and not the indignity of others.

The famous sage Vishwamitra of Hindu mythology is said to have exploited the energies of this nakshatra. Hence, a lot of sages till this day are prepared to undergo extreme penance for realizing their objectives. However, the basic nature of these natives is to keep their extremities and pursuits to themselves. Their overly grave countenance is marked by severity and nervousness, confronting others at the slightest instant, and behaving extremely cordially at gatherings.

Heavy metal rock concerts and the macabre attract Poorvabhadrapada. The evolved nature of this asterism teaches them to fight the bad which is demonstrated in creative artists and performers channeling the negative energies of their asterism through expression of their art. Natives of Poorvabhadrapada are often miserly and undergo phobia and perversion. Poorvabhadrapada finds expression through “yajamana shakti” or the power to elevate the evolutionary platform.

Padas or Quarters

The first pada falls on the Aries Navamsa which is ruled by Mars. The aggression of the natives here is more mental than physical. Natives can effectively control their temper and aggression, and have the determination to attain their goals.

 The second pada falls on the Taurus Navamsa which is ruled by Venus. Indulgent and energetic, natives are earthier and provide physical expression to the darker aspects of this constellation.

The third pada falls on the Gemini Navamsa which is ruled by Mercury. Communicative and curious, the natives display the lighter aspects of this intense nakshatra.

 The fourth pada falls on the Cancer Navamsa which is ruled by the Moon. Natives can be too benign or too dangerous, reflecting the psyche of both the persecutor and the persecuted. Common in various walks of life, they are socially adept with the rest of the 3 padas.


 Professions relating to death; morticians; cemetery keepers; coffin makers; surgeons; medical practitioners; radicals, fanatics; fundamentalists; terrorists; sci-fi writers; mystery book writers; dark side of entertainment and politics; pornography; occultists; dark technologies; leather industry workers; homicide squads of the police department; people dealing with toxic and highly polluting waste products; environmental enemies like lumberjacks; pharmaceutical industry; environmental activists; fire workers 

Gana: Poorvabhadrapada is a ‘manusha’/human nakshatra, although expectation would like us to have it as demonic. However, the Vedas say that humans are more capable of sin than demons.

Favorable Activities

Dangerous, uncertainty, risk, mechanisms, technology, funerals, conclusions, death, agriculture, water

Unfavorable Activities

Beginnings, initiations, marriage, sexual activity, dealing with higher authorities


Poorvabhadrapada natives should worship Lord Shiva, practice karma yoga and chant the root mantra “Om Vam” and “Om Sham” 108 times during the lunar transition of this nakshatra to alleviate afflictions. Wearing light colors is also recommended. All important actions should correspond to the course of this constellation for best results.


In the words of Varahamihira, the lunar influence gives Poorvabhadrapada a financially wealthy aspect, which may be placed at the service of their partners. Rock star Michael Jackson is a typical Poorvabhadrapada native.
