Purva Phalguni is the tamasic power of Venus. It represents taking a break from sensory pleasures to re-establish balance and inner harmony, and to break free of any attachments or addictions.
Purva Phalguni lies in the heart of Leo, which is ruled by the Sun. The Sun in its highest vibration represents our inner radiance, our true Self, the silent stillness at the core of our Being. When we free ourselves of the outer-directed pleasures that our senses provide we free ourselves of the lower vibrations of the Sun, our self-centeredness, our self importance, and begin to rise up the scale of what the Sun has to offer us, self esteem, self empowerment, and Self Realization. Established in Being, without need, we can then more fully enjoy all that the senses have to offer us, and all of life.
