Overview of Purva Phalguni Nakshatra in Astrology
This nakshatra entirely belongs to the sign of Leo. It is called the ‘former reddish one’. The symbol for this nakshatra is a hammock or front legs of the cot.

The word ‘Bhaga’ itself means share or portion. The natives get their share of abundance in this life. Phalguni consists of two words – ‘Phal’ means fruit, and ‘Guni’ means quality. It is said that Purva Phalguni natives are the ones who get fruits of their good deeds from the past lives. ‘Phalgun’ month is the beginning of spring. Connecting to this analogy, the natives will have a blessed life. This nakshatra is about settling down and marriage. Bhaga gives marital bliss and protects the bond.
