Purvaphalguni represented in the night sky by two bright stars in the back of the constellation of Leo. These stars can be seen forming a pari: of the lion shape usually associated with the constellation Leo. However ancient Vedic seers saw these two stars as representing the back legs of a cot (or the two poles of a swinging hammock). These stars are known in modern astronomy as Delta-Leonis (Zosma) & Theta-Leonis (Chertan).
Purvaphalguni translates into the "former reddish one", "the former" or "little fig tree". The color red always evokes a Wide variety of meanings and feelings and as we shall see, this nakshatra has a lot to do with the nature, qualities and temperament generally associated with the color red. The "fig tree" translation is a more obscure one and relates to the procreative aspect of this asterism.
Its main symbol is the front legs of a couch or bed. The bed referred to here is not the bed we use for sleeping on during the night time, but a divan or bed/couch used for a daytime siesta or lounging around. Some astrologers also use a swinging hammock as one of Purvaphalguni's Symbols. It is pretty clear from the above symbols that 'comfort' is the keyword for this nakshatra. In the cycle of the 27 nakshatras, the soul looks for comfort and enjoyment after attaining the 'throne' in the previous nakshatra.
