Punarvasu Constellation - Personality & Traits


It is known to be the birth star of Lord Rama. This constellation spans from 0.00 degrees of Gemini to 03.20 degrees of Cancer. The representation of the ‘quiver & arrow’ comes from him. He was blessed with a quiver which would never be short of arrows whether on a war field or during a journey. This is symbolic considering it went along with him during his exile as well as the war with Ravana. It represents having all the tools required for success and, sometimes, it’s nothing grand but very simple.

With Punarvasu, you learn how to live a life of humility and a simplistic nature, no matter where you come from. They are not materialistic and will always keep duty and honor above luxury and find the most simple answers to the most complex questions.

Key Punarvasu Traits

  • Behaviorally, Punarvasu have a very simplistic outlook which comes from demystifying complex things in life. Lord Rama is the best example for this. When faced with adversity and a thousand of demons from Ravana’s side, he did get shaky, but it wasn’t something he could afford to lose himself over even with an army not as organized as Ravana’s. He is remembered not just as an adept warrior but also as a person of calm even in the face of an adversity as big as the abduction of his wife by a stubborn demon. He found solutions and help on his way and a simple motto -“Truth can be disturbed, but not defeated.”

Punarvasu Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

Depending upon characteristics of each constellation (nakshatra), find out the best match for Punarvasu and their compatibility with each constellation.

Ashwini-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu is better off as a match for friendship than romance for Ashwini. We say this because Punarvasu has the habit of ensuring they are moral and advise others to be the same. Punarvasu keeps negativity and impulsiveness away and are generally people of extreme self-control, which is opposite to your nature. Punarvasu believes in doing the ‘right thing’ even when no one’s watching, and Ashwini believes in being impulsive and doing whatever you wish irrespective of who’s watching. There is a temperamental incompatibility.

Bharani-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu has a natural streak of being a ‘teacher’ to most people, but with Bharani, it differs.

Punarvasu has a thirst for knowledge and Bharani is enchanted by this quality. There is never a room for boredom. Bharani, the possessive one should be vocal about their idea of ‘not sharing’ which Punarvasu, surprisingly, adores.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 28/36, which is 75%.

Krittika/Krithika-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Not everything which brings them together is also best for long term. Krittika is possessive of Punarvasu as it travels and gains its wisdom and knowledge.

This wisdom and thirst attracts Krittika, but being possessive of them can also pull them apart. Learn to trust as Punarvasu are one of the most upright and honest individuals.

Ardra-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Chitra-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu is wise and Chitra loves their wisdom. They are ready to connect with Punarvasu in whichever way they wish.

Jyeshtha-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu are direct and Jyestha deals with complexity of emotions.

Uttara Ashada-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Talk so you can both understand the matters of your relationship better.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 20/36, which is 58%.

Shravana-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu is a very independent constellation which supports free thoughts, speech and actions. This enables them to be supportive of their partner’s freedom and wishes as well because they know how it contributes into a person’s journey of self-discovery. This makes Shravana feel at ease, peaceful and massively supported. They both give each other the healthy space required, without being possessive. Besides, Shravana helps Punarvasu channelize their restless mind towards direction and creativity with more clarity.

Dhanishtha-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Friendships is an important ingredient in any relationship, the openness to have conversations and candid, genuine ones.

Shatabhisha is unreliable, and Punarvasu doesn’t realize when to care or just let them be.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 9/36, which is an 25%.

Purva Bhadrapada-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu and Purva Bhadrapada share the same temperaments, but nothing else. Punarvasu can seem unbothered about petty suspicions in general, making the relationship all the more tough as they don’t wish to justify or clarify themselves unnecessarily to Purva Bhadrapada. Punarvasu do not wish to take charge of the relationship and won’t put the effort either. This relationship dies in long-term due to neglect.
