ROOT MEANING OF WORD BHARNI MAIN SYMBOL , ANIMAL SYMBOL,GANA,PLANETARY RULER & DEITY
Word ‘भरण’ in hindi or sanskrit simply means ‘to foster or to nurture’ & ‘Bharni’ means one who nurtures. Many scholars have translated this into ‘the one who bears’. So in a way – strong emphasis is given on nurturing, mothering and holding when we think of Bharni.Note that a mother sacrifices a lot to nurture her child & at times become fierce for their protection. It is the 2nd nakshtra amongst the 27 nakshatras & shows the feminine principal for the first time. This nakshtra is ruled by venus and has ‘elephant’ as its animal symbol. Its main symbol is ‘vagina’. It is a MANUSHYA nakshtra. The association of vagina with bharni opens up many new perspectives about bharni. Vagina is firstly a sexual organ which hints at this nakshtra being sexually very active. Other than this a vagina is seen as a doorway between the astral and the causal realm i.e our soul enters the earthly bound body through the vagina. Vagina also holds the baby and nurtures him/her (this associates the care taking aspect of bharni).Vagina as a organ is very sensitive and passionate & so is the functioning of bharni natives. Passion comes as a keyword when having mars-venus combination or bharni.
DEITY – YAMA
Yama is the elder brother of Saturn and is the lord of dharma. It is interesting to note that it is Saturn which provides our karmic results when we are alive & it is Yama which provides the results when we are dead. Saturn judges us when we are alive and yama judges us after death. Funnily they both are siblings according to Indian mythology.The relationships between yama & Saturn are not cordial and that’s why Saturn attains its deep deliberation in this nakshtra. Bharni is a nakshtra for nurturing and Saturn as a graha is associated with starving. So the qualities of bharni and Saturn seems to be 180° opposite. Yamraj is also ine of the 8 dikpal’s i.e guardians of the directions. The 8 dikpals are :-
Kubera ruling the North
Yama ruling the South
Indra ruling the East
Varuṇa ruling the West
Īśāna ruling the Northeast
Agni ruling the Southeast)
Vayu ruling the Northwest
Nirṛti ruling the Southwest
So the direction of yama is directly opposite to kubera. Kubera is considered as the lord of wealth & prosperity. That’s why it is prescribed to have your Lockers & safes on the northern direction.
NEGATIVE QUALITIES OF BHARNI
When the passion of bharni is directed to unwholesome pursuits then this energy leads to perversion and becomes a havoc. Bharni natives often nurtures and serves but someone other takes all the credits. As this nakshtra is having energies to connect with other worlds and other forces , they often end up being trapped in black magic and other forms in which shakti is manipulated. They let their anger multiply within them and then make a loadburst of it . They can commit crimes such as murders and rapes when the anger is raging,
POSITIVE QUALITIES OF BHARNI
Bharni natives likes to speak the truth and are righteous. This truth speaking nature comes from the combination of energies of Mars/Venus. When Mars/Venus together performs a task then “dedication” & “Passion” becomes the keyword. They are creative and can handle transformation. Because yama is the deity – bharni natives know what is right and have the potential to hold responsibilities. Photography and glamor world needs passion associated with seduction which bharni types are mostly interested in. The head and the feet are associated with bharni which links them with professions such as dance and scheming plots (mentally planning against someone).
The other symbol associated with bharni is a boat. This boat is a mystical boat which can be considered as a link between different realms & existence. Sunrise and sunset are also symbols representing bharni. Note that the time of sunrise & sunset is best suited for occult practices. Bharni as a nakshtra has great occult potential bcz it knows the complete process of birth, death and regeneration & is associated with venus.
