POOSAM comprises of three stars and are known in modern astronomy as Theta-Cancri, Gamma-Cancri & Eta-Cancri, and has a visual magnitude of 4.57.  The ancient Vedic seers saw these stars as resembling an "UDDER OF A COW".

Poosam translates into the "NOURISHER", the "NURTURER" or the "YIELDING".  The name carries within itself the essence of this nakshatra.

Poosam's main symbol is the "milk yielding udder of a cow".  Some scholars ascribe a "FLOWER" to be one of Poosam's symbols too.

BRIHASPATI, the guru, priest and chief advisor of the Gods, is the presiding deity of this Nakshatra. Since he is the same as planet Jupiter, it is not very hard to correlate Jupiter's basic nature with the kind and caring disposition of this nakshatra. All of Jupiter's benevolence such as generosity, compassion, joyfulness and optimism are manifested through this nakshatra. Kindness is what this nakshatra is all about.

According to Varahamihira, those with Moon in Poosam are "lucky, learned, wealthy, ethical and of a peaceful nature".

Poosam relates to "BRAHMAVARCHASA SHAKTI"- the power to harness the creative powers of Brahma (the universal creator).  This re-emphasizes the priestly aspect of Poosam, where one does outer rituals like HOMA and YAGYA to get favour of celestial entities and divine powers in general.

It belongs to KSHATRIYA (Warrior) class because of Poosam's intense involvement in politics and rulership; Brihaspati, the ruling deity of this nakshatra, is supposedly  to have mastery over politics too.

It is MALE & a PITTA (fiery) nakshatra.

MOUTH & FACE are the body parts related to this nakshatra.

Its DIRECTION ranges from West to North.
