Poorvashada – The Hand Fan

Poorvashada (13.20-26.40 Sagittarius) is the height where Venus culminates its positive energy and is ruled by the Waters. It is the asterism which supplies us with the energy that is required for survival.

Also known to many as ‘the Invincible Star’, Poorvashada is related with declarations of warfare, being ruled by the God of Wisdom. Poorvashada is denoted by the hand fan, and natives of this asterism are both confident and intelligent.

Behavioral Characteristics

Poorvashada has strong belief in itself and considers itself as invincible. Thus, most of the invincible qualities of the zodiac Sagittarius such as ambition, adventure, faith, exuberance and philosophy find their roots to this nakshatra. Being an optimistic constellation, Poorvashada lacks the impatience as it is prepared to follow the rules of time. Instead of being intimidated by setbacks, Poorvashada rather appears to be inspired by it, which may at times work against its favor.

Sometimes, Poorvashada natives are characterized by unrealistic hopes, which can be taken care of by balancing nakshatras in their horoscope. The energy of Poorvashada indicates performing the task right away and this is sometimes insensitive of them. It makes them more warring and destructive which brings sorrow and regret. The cautious nature of the natives makes them slow in performing certain immediate tasks and this may aggravate the intensity of the situation at hand.

Their fresh lookout contains the power to embed life in things that are not as fortunate as they are. Their nonchalance contributes to the joy of living every moment and overcome adversities. Hence their aim is to always get a good life. Certain kinds of the Poorvashada asterism tend to get excited once their goal is achieved and this is also a part of their inherent nature. Poorvashada is born to show them off, and they simply love it. Their creative perception is also worth mentioning as despite their somber expression, they can break into a smile any time.

Honesty is a Poorvashada trait, but then they delight in secrecy to a certain extent. Poorvashada identifies with “varchograhan shakti” which refers to the power to instill invigoration, with their strong bonding and strength to eliminate confusion at a cosmic level.

Padas or Quarters

 The first pada falls on the Leo Navamsa which is ruled by the Sun. The quarter stands for the proud and confident aspect of Purvashadha. With a strong spiritual urge, the other aspect is a strong sense of ethics. Planets like to stay in the limelight here.

The second pada falls on the Virgo Navamsa which is ruled by Mercury. It reflects the alchemical and intellectual aspect of the nakshatra. Natives are required to work hard and are rewarded by material or spiritual success. Other than Venus, planets are conducive to professional success.

 The third pada falls on the Libra Navamsa which is ruled by Venus. The pada is relaxed and loves luxury. Natives reap the fruits at this stage rather than working hard. A Pushkara Navamsa pada, planets other than the Sun provide good material results and promote partnerships and group tasks.

The fourth pada falls on the Scorpio Navamsa which is ruled by Mars. The pada is haughty, hidden, mysterious and secretive. There are two extremes, material perversity or great occult wisdom. Planets are ideal for foreign affairs and occult attainments.

Wearing ornate and varied pastel colors like white, light pink/blue 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 Poorvashada a proud disposition and makes them suitable for spousal relationships. Adolf Hitler is a typical Poorvashada native.
