Moon in Uttara Bhadrapada
Though they can be compassionate, often they are indifferent of the wider world and wider reality around them and are quite content doing their own thing no matter which nation is burning to the ground. They try to be concern with their own selves and what it is they can control. But, they are often dutiful and will do the work required of them. They are good at taking a step back and observing a situation objectively, subjecting even themselves to hard scrutiny.
“Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you” — Celine Dion
They can be deep romantics, looking for that one, perfect partner to dedicate themselves to. The world has been proven to be an uncertain place filled with objects that never last, but love, to some of these natives, seems to be the one thing they can totally melt into without fear of it ever dissipating. Some can wait years, decades even, for that one partner they feel will complete them and even stick to abusive partners that in truth bring nothing to them. Some can seem weak and empty with their “rock” to keep them firm. They can accept and even be indifferent of violence and devastation that may befall other people but go to great lengths to protect those they love.
They can suffer from severe contempt for others (even more so than the other Saturn nakshatras). Where as Pushya and Anuradha may at least want to partake in the bettering of others, Uttara Bhadrapada acts as though people are who they are and don’t bother with trying to change them much and simply look down upon them for their lesser ideas and poor manners. Unlike Pushya or Anuradha they are much less interested in correcting others but they can be angry and frustrated at the incompetence and inadequacies in others and harshly criticize them.
They can be amazing teachers but theirs is not the way of evangelism — constant search for new students. Instead they prefer to keep to those who already follow the same path as them.
Uttara Bhadrapada can be incredible intellectuals, because they are the least likely to let themselves be taken by the changing wind of ideas. Instead they do their best to not attach themselves to any theory unless it has been carefully thought through and reduced by fire - if there remains any component under the ashes, they feel more comfortable accepting it but even then, they are most comfortable maintaining some distance between identity and idea, lest they attach themselves to anything faulty and are themselves reduced to ash when said ideas are revealed to be wrong. So, for this, they will ask themselves and others many deep and serious questions.
Pisces, 12th house and Saturn (as significator of the 12th house) all represent feet and this nakshatra, specifically, also represents feet - though they can be intellectual, these types tend to be suspicious and cautious with both mental and emotional matters and try their best to ground any idea or theory in reality, lest the deceptive clouds of the 12th house make off with their heads. They try to avoid any idea too abstract that it cannot be easily observed, experienced and tested.
“You could say, in a vulgar Freudian way, that I am the unhappy child who escapes into books. Even as a child, I was most happy being alone. This has not changed.” — Slavoj Zizek
The more extreme of these natives may be quite detached from much in their lives, even their families and loved ones — but ironically, therein lies the reason for their steady and unwavering compassion for others. One important reason for human pain is desire in relationships. It hurts us if our parents yell obscenities at us or if our supposed friends don’t invite us out to parties because we require their love and attention for sustenance. But, by not investing themselves too much emotionally into their relationships, even when, from an outside perspective, they are not being given the love and respect that would be required in an average relationship, they can afford to be pleasant, calm and compassionate, because they have no expectations of them and all of their emotional needs are being deeply satisfied elsewhere, so they act from a position of satiation. But this is often for the more spiritually inclined among them.
More examples of this more extreme expression is how they can behave during heated arguments with loved ones. Whereas the average person would feel the need to explain himself, unhappy with how badly the opposing party may be framing them for the purpose of making themselves seem right or upset at how facts and passed events are perverted and not retold in their entirety, this more extreme expression of Uttara Bhadrapada would not argue back — because they have little use of other people’s understanding. This is especially the case if they have little respect for such people: gaslighhters, liars, the overly emotional, the prideful and all other people that refuse to take a wider, truer and more impersonal view of life. Suppose they do win this one argument, then what? With such people they would constantly be dragged right back into contention based on nothing more than myopic perception and ego (which, in yoga, is defined as identifying oneself with the ‘false self’ and all of the attachments and false ideas that come with such an identity, like one’s identity as a Republican or one’s desire for a particular outcome like teaching one’s daughter practices of traditional femininity even if this is not her nature but because you, the parent, wish for conformity).
Many of them do not suffer from the egoic need to be seen, and as such have no problems keeping secrets to themselves, not for any malicious reasons or even the need to be hidden, but simply because they don’t find that very interesting. They can keep even their thoughts and opinions to themselves because they may not find participation very interesting. But, those who are power-hungry can have little issues totally bulldozing others and to get their own way. The more immoral among them don’t suffer much from guilt and simply do whatever it is they must, from stealing and cheating and lying to murder, to get where they need to go. Though not expressly hypocritical, they have no issue living a double life and treat this likes its normal. They have no need to reconcile their public image with their “true selves”, and don’t mind if others develop ideas of them that is false.
They can seem a little scary to some people given how “unshaking” they can come off. There is a cold stability and sturdiness in the face of troubles or the threat of violence that is admirable to many.
