Nakshatra Feature Focus: Radiant & Glowing Uttara Ashada ☀️

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 Ashada उत्तराषाढ़ा nakshatra (26° 40′ Dhanus/Sagittarius – 10° Makara/Capricorn) may be present.

Uttara Ashada beauty tends to make one appear especially radiant, vital, and youthful, with warm and light coloring (in regards to one's genetic background). Uttara Ashada's energies can be physically spotted by typically hooded, small, medium to wide-set eyes. Their eyes are sharp and upturned, with plunging inner corners. They have a similar penetrating, elongated, and lifted shape to Sun-ruled Uttara Phalguni (although Uttara Ashada's eyes are generally smaller). The Uttara Ashada face typically has a structured and compact look, created by the shortness of the face and narrowness of the eyes. Their face is typically square or pear-shaped, as the strong mandible/jaw is as wide or (often times) wider than the forehead; the forehead is often more understated, small, narrow, and rounded. The cheekbones are generally small to medium in size and rounded but high. Like Uttara Phalguni as well, Uttara Ashada's jawline is distinctly sharp, angular, and tight (with a slightly broader average mandible than Uttara Phalguni), with a long ramus and low gonial angle.

In proportion to the face, the Uttara Ashada nose is typically small overall, with a rounded tip. The most width/emphasis to the nose is in the size and breadth of the nostrils, which are consistently somewhat wide-set & structured. Finally, Uttara Ashada's lips are typically medium in fullness with a deep cupid's bow.

You can watch my new Youtube-Short to see Uttara Ashada 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 Ashada'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 Ashada 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 Ashada nakshatra 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.
