Dasha ruler: Sun
Symbol : the tusk of an elephant
Deity : the ten Visvadevas (sons of Dharma and goddess Vishva)
Rulership : Elephant drivers, wrestlers, elephants, horses, devotees of gods, immovable things like trees, warriors, persons enjoying pleasures, and men of valor.
Moon in Uttarashadha : the person is gentle, humble, obedient, religious, has many friends, is grateful and beautiful.
Attributes : Spread from 26’40” Dhanu to 10’00” of Makara. Lord is Guru and Shani. The derivatives from Uttarashadha are closely allied to those of Poorbashadha. The points of difference are as follows. Poorbashadha spreads out, it is concerned with extensiveness. Uttarashadha is introspective and penetrative and is concerned with intensiveness, the results of the latter being more permanent than the former (Poorbashadha). The Deity who preserves this world and makes for its welfare is called ‘ganadevata’orVishwadevatas. There are ten ganadevatasBasu, Satya, Kratu, Daksha, Kala, Kama, Dhriti, Kuru, Pururaba, Madraba. All their Attributes are in this star. The warrior, the wrestler, the painter, the artist, the magician, the well-dressed man, the happy and successful men are influenced by this star.
A special characteristic of it is that it causes a person to be admired and socially applauded. Another characteristic of it is is that under the influence of this star the native falls in love with an unmarried girl. Bhishma of the Mahabharata was one of the 8 Basus; so under this star one possesses self-control, restraint, endurance and firm character. There are special rituals for the worship of ganadevatas, which are more or less of specialised nature. The juice of Soma plant plays a part in ‘yagna’ and worship.
Brihat Samhita: When Saturn transits Uttarasadha, he destroys the people of the Dasarna, the Yavanas, Ujjayini, the Sabaras, those who live on the Pariyatramountain, and the Kuntibhojas.
