In accordance with Vedic texts, the nakshatra is considered highly significant as it is where several Gods and Goddesses, including Shiva and Parvati, were married. As marriage is considered the most sacred bond, this nakshatra is considered ideal for commencing various contracts and agreements. Pandits (Astrologers) always choose this nakshatra for auspicious activities such as marriage and business inauguration. Its connections to God Shiva make it all the more important.

Deity: Its deity is Aryaman, one of the twelve Adityas (Solar Deities), is a friendly, social, dedicated, and loyal deity. This asterism serves as a bridge between the natural fifth house of Leo and the natural sixth house of Virgo.

Symbol: This nakshatra symbolizes the "back legs of the bed" and represents relaxation and comfort, as well as the later stages of deep sleep, wakeful state, and physical/mental actions, unlike its predecessor.

Ruler: This nakshatra is ruled by the Sun and represents a balance between purpose and action. It is the second Sun-ruled nakshatra.

Animal: It is associated with the "bull", an animal that symbolizes hard work and stability. It is domesticated, friendly, supportive, and protective. The bull is strongly connected to agriculture and is also associated with God Shiva, where it is known as "Nandhi," the vahan of God Shiva. Despite its calm demeanor, the bull possesses a great deal of physical energy that is utilized only when necessary.

Guna: This nakshatra is tamasic in nature, with a greater focus on shared material pleasure and abundance.

Power: "Chayani Shakti" symbolizes the ability to attain prosperity by uniting with others, such as through partnership or marriage, and accumulating mental, physical, and financial wealth.

General attributes: Individuals born under the Sun-ruled nakshatra are known to be supportive, hardworking, and fiercely independent. Their strengths lie in administration and management, as Sun and Mercury are connected to these traits. Although this nakshatra is associated with royalty, those born under it understand the struggles of the working class. Their lives will revolve around making and fulfilling contracts. However, it is important for them to take breaks and relax, as balance is crucial. This nakshatra is quite worldly, and its natives prioritize helping others over traditional religious practices. They possess a complex understanding of God, which often leads to deep introspection. It's important to note that these are general qualities, and individual experiences may vary.

The first and fourth padas are particularly good due to their association with Jupiter (Pushkara Navamsha), although all four padas have their own strengths.

Religious importance: The Tamil Nadu celebration of "Panguni Uttiram," which marks the marriage of the deities Shiva and Parvati, highlights the significance of this nakshatra.
