The deity ruling this nakshatra is Ahir Budhyana, he is a serpent living deep underwater. Goddess Laxmi rules this nakshatra and Saturn is associated with this nakshatra. There is a story that once goddess Laxmi and Saturn were having a conversation. They were trying to prove their point on who among them was better. Saturn told goddess Laxmi that she brings Maya into one life and can sometimes support the wrong person this brings imbalance and empowers the wrong and he is the one who is better at upholding dharma and helping people with the right path. Goddess Laxmi argued that everyone wanted her but no one wanted Shani. They both decided to go to Bramha to get an answer for who was better. Bramha did not want to answer the question, he turned them towards Vishnu, and Vishnu in turn turned them toward Narada. Narada finally concluded that both of them are equally important and powerful. Both of these contradictory energy is needed for the transformation of one’s life.
