Uttharashada – The Elephant Tusk

Uttharashada (26.40 Sagittarius-10.00 Capricorn) stands for the apex of the cosmic energy. It is symbolized by an elephant’s tusk, being governed by Vishwa Deva or Universal Gods, which makes it a permanent nakshatra.

Uttharashada can be translated into several meanings such as the “Latter Invincible One” or the “Latter Unconquered”. It is evident from the import of the meaning that Uttharashada is more focused on the end goal.

Behavioral Characteristics

The asterism concentrates on tradition, elegance, courtesy and authority although Uttharashada is also featured with introspection, positivism and an enduring aura. In fact, the very essence of Uttharashada indicates someone whose opinions can be relied upon. They can be counted on to begin new ventures and enterprises and completing them as well. The energy of Uttharashada is pioneering and industrious and most of its practicality and goal oriented attributes can be found in the zodiac of Capricorn.

Uttharashada as a nakshatra is concerned with order, symmetry and structural facets and this makes them adhere to the essences of respect and conformity. The association with ancestry makes them traditionalists so much so that they ingrain these values in their personal life as well. However, Saturn also prevails in this asterism and this is an influence that can make the Uttharashada natives rigid, remote, and harsh like the elephant’s tusk. Uttharashada is entirely intolerant of something that is not respectable.

The philosophical and spiritual motivations of Uttharashada are geared towards deriving practical solutions. The sexual energy of this nakshatra is denoted by the mongoose, which happens to be one of the few animals that can defeat a snake, and hence Uttharashada is a symbol of everything Ashlesha is not. They are also positioned opposite each other in the 6th, 7th and 8th houses. These 2 nakshatras engage in frank dislike and warfare. Uttharashada hardly tolerates deception, just as the mongoose is cunning.

The mongoose finds clever means to find its way ahead of tense or difficult situations. In fact, the natural energy of Uttharashada makes it take up challenging tasks that are easy for them. The spiritual basis of this constellation is that it uncovers the illusion of the soul. The Uttharashada energy is represented by “apradhrishya shakti” or the power to give permanent victory. The alliances with higher forces of good are represented by the victory of righteousness over unrighteousness.

Padas or Quarters

 The first pada falls on the Sagittarius Navamsa which is ruled by Jupiter. The characteristics include expansiveness, righteousness and confidence. The energies are such that all things are bound to succeed. There is optimum faith in the knowledge, ability and understanding of this pada. Being both a vargottama pada and a pushkara navamsa pada, planets provide strong results materially and spiritually. Mars, Sun, Ketu and Jupiter are especially helpful with Jupiter providing best results.

The second pada falls on the Capricorn Navamsa which is ruled by Saturn. The focus is on thoughts, desires and plans. Planets make the native especially strong. Issues of this pada depend on their personality and how it is expressed to the world. The goal is important here more than the means. There is also a lot of attention to worldliness with noticeable power structures. Saturn and Mars can best use the energies in this quarter.

 The third pada falls on the Aquarius Navamsa which is ruled by Saturn. The focus lies on accumulation of knowledge and material goods. A strong attachment to family is also noted here. If the native works through others, they can attain positive results. Saturn, Mercury and Rahu makes all this possible through teamwork. Saturn provides strongest results.

 The fourth pada falls on the Pisces Navamsa which is ruled by Jupiter. There is a lot of physical ability, philanthropy, courage and brief travels here. Constant contradictions are also involved between spiritual and material values here, with material realms prevailing more. Planets provide ample energy to pursue one’s goals and ambitions. Mars, Moon and Saturn can best deal with the energies of this pada.

Uttharashada natives should worship Lord Ganesha and chant the root mantra “Om Bha” and “Om Bham” 108 times during the lunar transition of this nakshatra to alleviate afflictions. Wearing colors like orange, yellow and shades such as light 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 Uttharashada pleasant, modest and grateful appearance. Swami Vivekananda was born with Uttharashada rising on his ascendant.
