POORAM, is represented by 2 bright stars in the back of the constellation of Simmam.  Vedic Seers saw these 2 stars as representing the "BACK LEGS OF A COT". These stars are known in modern astronomy as DELTA-LEONIS (ZOSMA) & THETA-LEONIS (CHERTAN).  With a visual magnitude of 2.56, Zosma is the brighter one.

Its main symbol is the legs of a couch or bed. Some astrologers also use a SWINGING HAMMOCK as one of Pooram's symbols.

Pooram relates to a time where we look for rest, relaxation and amusement after fulfilling our wordly duties and responsibilities.  The symbol of the legs of a bed relates to the beginning part of the relaxation process. A lot of scientists and researchers have found that the solution to a problem usually comes to them, not when they are actually working at the problem.  The solutions come in the period when we have taken our mind-off it and are in a state of complete relaxation. 

BHAGA, one of the 12 Adityas (solar deities) is the main ruling deity of this nakshatra.  Bhaga's name translates roughly into "DELIGHT", "PLEASURE" and "INDULGENCE".  That's why it is related to the planet Venus.

Bhaga's strong relationship with enjoyment makes this as one of the most carefree nakshatras.  Pooram natives don't like to worry as they are comfortable, especially from a physical point of view. 

Pooram is directly connected to Shiva-Lingam, the most commonly worshipped form of Shiva. 

Pooram is considered to be a balanced nakshatra.  Pooram balances creativity with relaxation, work with pleasure, aggression with gentleness.

Pooram relays the brahminical side of the planet Venus.  SHUKRA CHARYA, the presiding deity of Venus, is the preceptor of the demons and has the unique distinction of knowing SANJIVINIVIDYA (knowledge of bringing the dead back to life), which even BRIHASPATI, the preceptor of the gods, does not possess. 

It is a Female nakshatra. Beauty, vanity, love of ease, comfort and luxury are all primarily female concerns.  

THE SEX ORGANS, THE LIPS & THE RIGHT HAND are the body parts related to this nakshatra. It is a "PITTA" (fiery) nakshatra.

According to Varahamihira, Pooram borns "have sweet speech, pleasing manners, habit of wandering & often serve the government in one way or another.
The 1st paagam of Pooram indicates ego, dignity & regality;

The 2nd paagam of Pooram indicates the most sober and hardworking paagam;

The 3rd paagam of Pooram indicates the liking for travels, harmony, relaxation, refinement, counselling, creation & appreciation of beauty; &

The 4th paagam of Pooram indicates the emphasis on intensified emotions, home and family life.

DO YOU KNOW which paagam of POORAM you belong to?  Every paagam comes with different interpretations.  Only DETAILED ASTROLOGERS can let you know the difference.
