There are certain features that can be telltale signs of a nakshatra, even if the natives do not always look overtly similar across all features. There are a few specific features I love to check for when I'm suspecting that Uttara Phalguni उत्तर फाल्गुनी nakshatra (26° 40′ Leo- 10° Virgo sidereal) may be present, which calls to my mind the idea of being "Fox Pretty". In fact, it was Bella Hadid's eye lift surgery which really solidified this "fox eye" term in the recent collective consciousness, and many suggest that she was inspired by the foxy look of 90's model Carla Bruni (Uttara Phalguni Moon).
This nakshatra often grants its female natives with narrowed but elongated eyes, with a long and sharp inner corner (something often seen on trine Sun-ruled nakshatras as well). The vertical height of Uttara Phalguni's eyes is especially minimal compared to their exaggerated eye length. The seductive & unique sharpness of their eyes is balanced pleasantly with lots of softness to the cheeks, which tend to be rounded and full.
There is softness too in the nose tip, which is plump & medium to large, very circular, and upturned. Overall, the Uttara Phalguni face tends to be a compact round shape or square. The forehead is also short and rounded. The jaw is short and sharp and the chin is slightly pointed. Their lips are long and generally about medium in fullness, with more projection in the upper center lip.
Being partially in the Solar Leo as well as being a Sun-ruled nakshatra, Uttara Phalguni is highly radiant, charismatic, and able to command attention. In my survey of 350 performing artists (actors, actresses, dancers, etc.) Uttara Phalguni was powerfully present. This is something I go into more detail regarding in the ebook below.
You can watch my new Youtube-short to see Uttara Phalguni beauty in motion (it can also be found on instagram @claire.nakti or tiktok @clairenakti). As with everything in astrology, these features to check for are a tendency not a rule for Uttara Phalguni's physical appearance. A person's other primary placements will bring in features as well, though one will tend to come to the surface the most strongly (relating to their dominant planet); one can have a Uttara Phalguni primary placement but be dominated by one of their other primary placements instead. In this way, I seek in these posts to isolate the Uttara Phalguni appearance influence as much as possible by finding the most consistent common physical ground amongst its natives, while having awareness that each individual you're seeing has other astrological influences at play as well that make them unique. I wanted to make these posts so that you don't have to rely on two people looking strikingly similar to know they share a nakshatra, but rather can more consciously/logically check for certain revealing features even amongst people who have many differences.

Birth time notes:
-Ariana De La Hoya has a C-rated birth time for Tropical Virgo Rising (which can be Uttara Phalguni).
-I contacted astrotheme and astrodatabank today with Madelyn Cline's A verified birth time, as her Glamour interview shows her chart is specifically 1 degree Libra in Tropical astrology. Previously, it'd been listed as C-rated general Libra ASC (tropical).
