Purva Phalguni Nakshatra

The two bright stars in the Leo constellation, Zosma (Delta Leonis) and Chertan (Theta Leonis) form Purva Phalguni. They are located to the left of the bright star Magaha or Regulus.
Also known as Bhagadavaita, Purva Phalguni is a potent nakshatra. The nakshatra blesses the natives with positive feelings like love, pleasure, prosperity, and enjoyment abundantly.
The nakshatra is believed to harbor the seed of creation, its development, and its dissolution, i.e., its merger into the universe to pave the way for a new life.
