Soul prepares to reincarnate into a new body
"Reincarnation (renewal through death) is...a theme of the two Bhadrapada stars. The first, Purva Bhadrapada, suggests the "front" of the hearse: the beginning of the process of reincarnation..."
Kundalini moving down the Sushumna
Purvabhadrapada's deity is the first of the two bhadrapada naga dragons. Naga live in the root chakra (and lower) and Dragon is a form of Kundalini so it's a hint that the energy is now moving downwards back towards material existence. This is represented by the deity Aji-Ekapada who is worshipped as a form of Siva who is standing on one foot as the pillar of existence and original one God out of which Brahma and Vishnu emerge. This one foot is also considered to be axis mundi, and that is our sushumna nadi. This consciousness of returning to the human experience in a flesh-and-blood body is what gives the fire to raise a spiritual person up in life (yajamana udyamana shakti). As souls in heaven we are inspired to go back down there into the earth plane with all of its trials and karmic soul contracts in order to work out karmic blockages so that as spiritual beings we can rise up the sushumna channel and become more evolved than we were in the previous lifetime. This is the great blessing of life in the human experience - all the challenges that drive us crazy is what give us the opportunity to evolve and experience expanded and blissful being.
