Uttara Phalguni (The latter red one or a fig tree) (146°40′ to 150°00′ Leo to 150°00′ to 160°00′ Virgo)

Uttara Phalguni nakshatra is comprised of two stars in the constellation of Leo

Denebola (Beta-Leonis), a bright star, and 93-Leonis, a very faint star. Uttara Phalguni is represented by the back legs of a bed, which signify relaxation and rejuvenation, but is less comfort-oriented than Purva Phalguni. Uttara Phalguni also incorporates the preparation for returning to work after a resting period. Aryaman, the God of patronage and kindness, is the ruling deity who gives Uttara Phalguni a civilized and cultured approach to life. People born under this star are noble, reliable, and generous. They are quite concerned with helping others and adhere to proper social etiquette. The ruling planet is the Sun, who gives qualities of radiance, prosperity, charity, and benevolence to Uttara Phalguni. This star has the ability to formulate creative expression and develop opinions. People born under Uttara Phalguni nakshatra are self-reliant, independent and attempt to create their own path in society. This nakshatra can have a cruel and harsh energy, but ultimately this intensity brings honor and balance. Uttara Phalguni is a star of compassion and friendship.
