Yama is the deity of this constellation. Yama guides the soul to the astral plane, where it can experience the result of its karma from the present life and prepare for the life to come. So Bharani Nakshatra takes away that which has reached its term of life to a new condition. It shows the movement of the soul away from the body. Bharani Nakshatra has the characteristics of cleaning the soul from impurities.
The Symbol for this Nakshatra is Yoni or female reproduction System and the animal symbol is male elephant which also represents the burden carrying capacity of the native born in this star. The energy of Goddess Shakti or Parvati resides here.
When it comes to Bharani Nakshatra characteristics, Must say It is a difficuilt Nakshatra.
It shows personal transformation through struggles and obstacles. Social activist , philosopher, reformers are born in this star. Karl Marx had Moon placed in this Star. It gives a creative potential to the Native. If Sun is placed in this constellation, it confers the Leadership quality, Authority, Power etc. The person will like explore and will have an active mind. But the Motivation of his work will be Artha or Wealth.So a well placed sun here can bring fame, success and richness.
But on the darker side of the nature of Bharani born native is that they have a tendency of jealousy towards others. It gives a sense of being entangled in the world of desires and illusions. Strong sexual desires may be experienced here (Kuja Shukra connection). They have major issues with anger and pride. Bharani Nakshatra characteristics is a restless irritable and impatient person who is ready to jump into anything and everything without caution or consideration. They often undergo huge changes and transformations in life. This comes about due to their desire for extremes. Remember this is one of the most sexual Nakshatra in the entire Zodiac. When it comes to sex, he has no limits and will go to any extreme to fulfill his desires. Rahu here can be devastating if associated with Lagna or Chandra.Famous Pop singer Madona had her mars in Bharani star.
It is easy for a Bharani Native to move from one action to the next without caring about the long term implications. It is a highly explosive energy which cannot usually be controlled by any social structure. The fact that the Nakshatra constitution is Pitta, the fact that it is an Agni Rashi, and the fact that Shukra is the ruler, makes the individual very active on the material plane. They are very very self-centered and selfish. Note that it is an extremely Rajasic planet. They have spontaneous behaviors and want to get things done quickly. They are stubborn, childlike, resist control, unmanageable, and calculating but so skilled in the art of flattery that will not share their pains with the others. Suddam Hussain had his sun in Bharani.
If we summarize, Bharani Nakshatra Characteristics is like Inner struggles can become a spiritual transformation leading to enlightenment for the native.
