Bharani is often seen as under the reign of the Hindu god of death, Yama. The symbol of Bharani Nakshatra is the Yoni, a representation of the female reproductive organ. Bharani corresponds with the extreme power of fire due to the ruling planet, Venus and hence, the people born under this Nakshatra display colossal level of fire-like burning vitality. Bharani is an extremist. It chooses to dive headfirst and immerse itself fully in whichever path of life it chooses, whether positive or negative. As such, the people born under this Nakshatra oscillate to the extremes in their decisions & choices in life. Yoni, the symbol of Bharani, signifies creativity, sexuality and the origin of life. Just like the womb, Bharani is also held sacred and is considered to be the center for growth, nourishment, and youthfulness.

Natives in this star have a strong character. They possess great enthusiasm and display the firm ability to withstand extreme changes and transform as per the need. Their eagerness to learn surpasses that of most of the other Nakshatra natives, often leading them to leave their commitments unfulfilled to pursue new learnings.
