Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra


“Nothing going to change my love for you….you ought to know by now how much I Love You…..” Uttaraphalguni reminds me of this beautiful song sung by George Benson. Leo is a sign of LOVE. Virgo is a sign of LOGIC. Uttaraphalguni spreads its wings in both the signs – LEO and VIRGO. The First Pada of Uttaraphalguni falls in LEO sign – the sign of LOVE. The remaining three padas fall in VIRGO sign – the sign of LOGIC.

LEO is LOVE – and LOVE is intelligent.

The more you are in love – the more love is within and around you – the more you become LOVE – the more you become Intelligent – the source of intelligence is LOVE!

Rahu in the first Pada of LEO sign fire up the matters of love and the quest for intelligence. Whereas natives having Rahu in the second, third and fourth Pada of VIRGO sign are more attracted towards intelligence.

The inner feeling of natives having Rahu in Uttaraphalguni is in the following words:

VIRGO is LOGIC – and LOGIC is intellectual. Understand the difference. Savor the difference.

SUN is Intelligence. While Mercurian VIRGO is intellectual. On top of that – when Rahu is in Sun’s Nakshatra Uttaraphalguni – you end up meeting a person who has the capacity to attain the peak of intelligence.

Mohan asked “What is intelligence – how would you define intelligence?”

Not to carry the past is intelligence, to die to the past every moment is intelligence, to remain fresh and innocent is intelligence. To live 100% in the NOW moment is intelligence. To listen to the voice of your heart is intelligence. Intelligence is born when your intellect is in tune with your heart. Heart is the source of intelligence – Sun represents this heart – and it is necessary to remember that the MIND is always lost in the PAST or the FUTURE – whereas the HEART is always in the PRESENT – it has to be in the PRESENT because if the heart stops beating then you are DEAD!

So heart is always beating – living. A man of awareness looks joyous because he follows the beat of his heart – he is liv-ing with joy!

Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra brings brilliance in the field of:

  1. Ministry service
  2. Doctor service
  3. Mechanical service
  4. Technical service
  5. Communication service

Basically in all kind of service sectors – such a Rahu shines bright – in fact natives are more interested to serve the society through their intelligence and skills.

Rahu in Uttaraphalguni brings expertise in certain skillset. Be it writing, singing, dancing, handcrafting – native does well in skills related with hands.

Many good doctors and healers are born with this placement. Skillful hands, certain healing power is seen, in fact many reiki masters are born with this placement. Rahu in Uttaraphalguni gives a great desire to heal others, to educate others, to spread the light of consciousness – to help this world become a much better place to live.

Rahu in the last three padas of Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra fire up the tendency to analyze. Such a Rahu is good for research work, investigation. This Rahu is also good for works of literature, accountancy, and drama.

Uttaraphalguni is a beautiful lovable nakshatra. However Rahu exaggerates everything that it gets in touch with! Rahu is oil – and oil never gives you satisfaction – that’s why when you start eating oily fried food – you want more and more and more – that is how the nature of Rahu is – it wants more and more and you never realize that when this “Do More” nature converts into an obsession!

Obsessed with too much analyzing – too much criticizing – too much intellectualism – too much head – too much logic – all these traits are often seen when Rahu is in Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra.

There is a conflict – Rahu’s quest for intellectualism and Sun’s quest for intelligence! Uttaraphalguni being a Sun’s Nakshatra – Rahu feels that it is not getting the ‘limelight’ – the ‘recognition’ that it aspires for! Recognition – is what these natives strive for – the more recognition they get the more they are satisfied. For them recognition comes first – money comes later. Recognition is what drives them.

Everybody wants recognition – appreciation – that’s perfectly fine. But this RAHU simply gets so much obsessed with seeking recognition that the native simply forgets the fact that happiness is not TOTALLY based on recognition.

Natives having Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra should realize that – the desire for recognition makes you weak and you fall in a vicious trap.

Rahu is FEAR. And in the case of RAHU in UTTARAPHALGUNI nakshatra – the native is unable to live a fearless life because he or she is constantly seeking validation, recognition from others!

And when you stop seeking recognition and validation – fear will fade away and you will become the most feared person on this planet!

Uttaraphalguni is a nakshatra that loves to accumulate knowledge, learn new subjects – Uttaraphalguni is indeed a scholarly Nakshatra – many scholars ae born with Moon in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra. Rahu In Uttaraphalguni gives birth to the desire of attaining scholarship. If the other planets are well placed then the native succeeds in getting scholarship on his or her merits.

In the chart of an evolved soul – Rahu in Uttaraphalguni can also give intense desire to attain wisdom.

It is necessary to understand that all NAKSHATRAS ruled by SUN – signify a strong inclination towards spirituality. And since Uttaraphalguni falls in Leo and Virgo – the heart and hand come together and when this happens – a good spiritual healer is born! Because you can heal only when you follow the vibes of your heart – when your actions are in sync with what you feel from the depth of your heart.

You can heal yourself only when your heart is open and flowering with joy. Healing is closely connected with the state of your heart. If you are unwell – if you are having certain chronic diseases then you should focus on opening your heart – and your heart will open only when it is purified!

Rahu in Uttaraphalguni natives should focus on purifying their heart.

How to purify your heart? That must be your next question. And the answer is – by chanting day and night – with consistency – with love – with devotion.

Rahu in Uttaraphalguni natives should stress more on chanting then chattering.

Mohan asked “Why you insist these natives to chant more?”

I said “Because Rahu in sign of logic (Virgo) brings forth the nature of chatting, gossiping which a highly intelligent Nakshatra Uttaraphalguni doesn’t like – and Rahu simply pushes you more into the head then the heart – and so these natives need to chant – because only through chanting can they overcome the ever buzzing mind and the tendency to perceive everything from logical mindset.”

Virgo is an intellectual sign – but the problem with intellectualism is that it is completely trapped in the HEAD – it is all logic – and GOD cannot be realized, LOVE cannot be realized by LOGIC but by LOVE – and LOVE happens only when you start moving from your HEAD to HEART – this wonderful journey begins only when you have the fuel which comes through the source of CHANTING.

“Mantra Chanting is therapeutic. It energizes the body, purifies the mind and cleans the soul.”

To experience GOD – the experience the divine – you have to focus on chanting the holy mantra – by focusing on your breathing.

True intelligence is possible only when you take to chanting – only when you start moving out of your head – when you think less and feel more.

Rahu in Uttaraphalguni generally gives a good appealing body – especially if the native is a female then such a female looks very appealing, her body is generally found to be in shape and she generally enjoys good health. The same is the case with males having Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra.

A few days ago – Mohan has asked a beautiful question – he asked “How does the head destroy the possibilities of LOVE?”

The HEAD is always GOAL-ORIENTED. Rahu in Uttaraphalguni being in Virgo sign – can make you more logical then otherwise. And Logic is HEAD and HEAD always has a GOAL – an AGENDA!

Reminds me of a beautiful story. There was a man, and he was interested in self-realization. All his life, that was his desire, his goal! He was in search of a Master, who could help him achieve his desire. A Master who could teach him meditation. So he went from one Master to another, but nothing was happening…

Years went by, he was tired, exhausted. Then someone told him, “If you really want to find a master you will have to go to the Himalayas. He lives in some unknown parts of the Himalayas; you will have to search for him. One thing is certain, he is there. Nobody knows exactly where, because whenever somebody comes to know of him he moves from that place and goes even deeper into the Himalayan ranges.”

The man was getting old, but he gathered courage. For two years he had to work to earn money for the journey, then he made the journey. Those were the old times, so he had to ride on camels and horses and then go on foot, and then he reached the Himalayas. People said, “Yes, we have heard about the old man, very ancient, one cannot say how old he must be — maybe three hundred years old, or even five hundred years old; nobody knows. He lives somewhere, but the location cannot be given to you. Nobody is aware of where exactly you will find him, but he is there. If you search hard you are bound to find him.”

The man searched and searched and searched. For two years he was roaming in the Himalayas — tired, exhausted, dead exhausted, living only on wild fruits, leaves and grass. He had lost much weight. But he was intent that he had to find this man; even if it took his life, it would be worth it.

And can you imagine? One day, he saw a small hut, a grass hut. He was so tired that he was not even able to walk, so he crawled. He reached the hut. There was no door; he looked in, there was nobody inside. And not only was there nobody inside, but there was every sign that for years there had been nobody inside.

You can imagine what would have happened to that man. He fell on the ground. Out of sheer tiredness he said, “I give up.” He was lying there under the sun in the cool breeze of the Himalayas, and for the first time he started feeling so blissful, he had never tasted such bliss! Suddenly he started feeling full of light. Suddenly all thoughts disappeared, suddenly he was transported — and for no reason at all, because he had not done anything.

….And then he became aware that somebody was leaning over him. He opened his eyes. A very very ancient old man was standing in front of him.

And the ancient old man, the Master smiled, and said, “So you have come. Have you something to ask me?”

The man said, “No.” The ancient old man laughed, a great belly laugh which was echoed by the valleys. And he said, “So now you know what meditation is?”

And the man said ” Yes”!

Beautiful. What an insightful story! Meditation is a Let-Go. Meditation happens only, when the mind is non-goal oriented. You sit for meditation with a purpose to achieve something and meditation cannot happen! The moment you drop the desire, the destination is met! Then there is a joy to it. Then there is a song to it. The assertion which came from that man’s deepest core of being — “I give up” — in that very giving up, all goal-oriented mind efforts and desires disappeared. He dropped all his desires and goals and in that very moment he was no more the same person. And bliss showered on him. He was silent, he was a nobody, and he touched the ultimate stratum of non-being. Then he knew what meditation is. Then he knew what prayer is for! And then he was able to attain self-realization!

The moment this man let go, of his desire to meet the Master , to achieve self-realization….the moment he said ‘I give up’, the miracle happened! Meditation happened, God happened, Love happened, Joy arose in his heart! The moment he let go, the ‘doors opened’ and …the Master appeared…..his aura…his smile…his divinity…all that he had wished to experience, appeared before him! And that was his moment…moment of self-realization!

The natives having RAHU in UTTARAPHALGUNI should try to LET GO – and LET GO is possible only when you are no more caught up in your HEAD – when you have started moving towards your HEART.

Happiness is not attained as long as you are trapped in your head, your logic, your so called intellectualism. Happiness is attained only through the heart and so it is only when you start following your heart – when you feel more and think less that you can find happiness in your life. Head will never allow you to LET GO – the heart will. Listen to your heart – your heart is beautiful.

Uttaraphalguni is Royale by nature. Being a star of the SUN – the Supreme King – this Nakshatra is RAJAS by Guna. Rajas means royal, pleasure seeking. And when Rahu is in Uttaraphalguni – the desire to experience Royal lifestyle – the desire to live life KING SIZE is seen with these natives.

Reminds me of Naruhito. Naruhito is the current emperor of Japan. He acceded to the Throne on 1 May 2019. He is the 126th monarch according to Japan’s traditional order of succession.

Naruhito has Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra.

Stardom comes naturally to Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra. Being the Nakshatra of Sun and its association with Mercurian Virgo with a touch of Fame called RAHU – you will find many known celebrity actors and actresses born with this placement.

One that I remember is – Jackie Shroff. A devotee of Sai Baba – Jackie Shroff’s story is typically a rags to riches story. From a very humble beginning – he rose to the heights of Stardom.

The legendary South Indian Actor – Mohanlal also has Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra.

As mentioned in the very beginning of this sharing – that Rahu in Uttaraphalguni provides skills in acting as well as the desire to attain wisdom. When it comes to the subject of wisdom – how can I miss the most famous Life Coach – Tony Robbins!

Tony Robbins has Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra.

So now you all can understand that how significant Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra is – and the potential it brings on!

Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra is most suitable for natives born on:

  1. Virgo Ascendant
  2. Taurus Ascendant
  3. Capricorn Ascendant
  4. Libra Ascendant
  5. Gemini Ascendant
  6. Aquarius Ascendant

Rahu loves Mercury and Venus and so when you have strong well placed Mercury and Venus – then Rahu in Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra is potent to provide best possible results.

Aryamana is the deity of Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra. Aryaman is the third son of Aditi the mother of the Adityas and is depicted as the mid-morning sun. Aryamana or Aryam means “Life partner” or “Close friend.” Hindu marriage oaths are administered with an invocation to Aryaman being the witness to the event. Aryaman also is the deity of the customs of hospitality.

The tree – Kaner or Oleander or also called as Rose Laurel is the tree related to Uttara phalguni Nakshatra.

By planting Kaner or Oleander – you will be able to receive the grace of the scholarly Nakshatra – Uttara Phalguni!

Always remember – worshipping Lord Sun every morning by offering “Ardhya” and reciting the following 12 Surya Mantras – you can strengthen SUN in your birthchart.

The 12 powerful Surya Mantras are as follows:

1. Om Mitraya Namaha – which means – salutations to the friend of all

2. Om Ravaye Namaha – which means – salutations to the shining one

3. Om Suryaya Namaha – which means – salutations to the one who induces activity

4. Om Bhanave Namaha – which means – salutations to the one who illumines

5. Om Khagaya Namaha – which means – salutations to the one who moves quickly in the sky

6. Om Pushne Namaha – which means – salutations to the giver of strength and nourishment

7. Om Hiranya Garbhaya Namaha – which means – salutations to the golden cosmic self

8. Om Marichaye Namaha – which means – salutations to the bringer of the dawn

9. Om Adityaya Namaha – which means – salutations to the son of Aditi, the cosmic mother

11. Om Arkaya Namaha – which means – salutations to the one who is fit to be praised

12. Om Bhaskaraya Namaha – which means – salutations to the one who leads to enlightenment

Remember – SUN is a CELIBATE – meaning SUN never had SEX. Sun is NOT behind sexual pleasures. Venus is behind sexual pleasures. And so Venus considers SUN as enemy. Venus and SUN are enemies of each other.



BHOG is always limited version because after having sex – you are lost, you are tired.

YOG is always unlimited version because the more you meditate the more you gain strength!

See – the contrast – in case of Venus the more you have sex the more you become tired. In case of Sun – the more you do Yoga the more you gain strength!

You have to decide – which one to choose – BHOG or YOG?

Based on what you choose is what decides your future course of births and rebirths. There is absolutely nothing wrong in being a BHOGI – what is wrong is that when you REMAIN A BHOGI – you don’t realize that ENOUGH is ENOUGH.

Reminds me of a story – it happened so that God is making all the creatures of the earth and is giving out sex lives to each animal.

First he turns to the human.

“I am giving you ten years of a good sex life,” says God.

The man’s face falls. “Is that all?” he asks.

“I only have so much to go around, fella,” says God.

He then turns to the monkey and says, “I’m giving you twenty years of a good sex life.”

The monkey says, “Oh, I don’t really need that much. Ten years would be more than enough for me.”

The man, standing nearby, overhears this and says excitedly, “I will take it! I will take those extra ten years.”

“All right,” says God. “You got it.”

He then turns to the lion.

“I’m going to give you twenty years of good sex life.”

The lion replies, “You know, God, I really think I would be happier with just ten.”

The man starts hopping up and down. “I will take them! I will take the other ten years!”

“You can have them,” says God to the man.

He turns to the donkey and says, “Now, I am going to give you twenty years of a good sex life. Is that all right with you?”

“To tell you the truth,” says the donkey, “I would also be satisfied with just ten.”

God gives the man the other ten years too.

This story explains why a man has ten years of a good sex life, ten years of monkeying around, ten years of lying’ about it and then ten years of making an ass out of himself.

This is what happens when you REMAIN BHOGI – when you continue to see more and more sexual pleasures – there is no end to this – and that is how you never come out of this birth and death cycle!

SEX is NOT bad. Being BHOGI is NOT bad – because at some stage of life – we all have been in the stage of a BHOGI – but what differentiates the wise from the idiot is that the wise moves on – while the idiot remains a BHOGI – continues to seek more and more sexual pleasures!

SUN – SUN is a celibate – HE is truly FREE – HE is GOD – HE is the SOURCE of this whole universe. To such a divine SUN – the Lord of Uttaraphalguni Nakshatra – I humbly prostrate and pray that may HIS blessing shower upon me and my followers.

Love to all my followers. Stay blessed and remember to take bath in the early morning blissful sun rays. Sitting and receiving the early sun rays – recite the name of the Lord – listen to the humming of the birds – watch the flowers dancing in the cool breeze – what else more is needed to enjoy this beautiful human life – nothing more but Love. Love. And only Love.

Love to all my followers. Stay blessed.

Jai Shri Ganesha. Jai Guru.
