Poorva Phalguni Nakshatra : Spread from 13°-20' to 26°40' Simha. Lord Ravi, deity "Shivalinga". Symbol—Swinging hammock. It is also called the Bhagadaivata Star. All the six majesties, pleasures and prosperities, love, enjoyment and sensual delights are caused by this Nakshatra. The origin of creation is the "Shivalinga". It is the symbol of the call for creation, it announces creation and development. The closure of it means destruction. The individual who in personal life succeeds in mastering the six impulses, that is the impulse of creativity which masters also death. Therefore, on the one hand this star symbolises the joy of creation and enjoyment, and on the other hand signifies desirelessness and asceticism.
