Leo - As Uttara-Phalguni is a part of Leo, Leo sign and its representations become important. Leo is 5th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents the things associated with 5th house of horoscope like Love, Creativity, Arts, Being on Stage etc. Besides that, Leo is basically the Lion. This is the sign of feeling like King or Queen. Also, it is a sign of independence, Confidence, Ego, Self Esteem etc. Leo is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatra namely Magha, Purva-Phalguni and Uttara-Phalguni. Leo's lord is Sun.
Virgo - As Uttara-Phalguni is also a part of Virgo, Virgo sign and its representations also become important. Virgo is the 6th sign of zodiac belt, hence it represents almost all the things which are represented by the 6th house of horoscope like Debts, Diseases, Obstacles, Serving the under-privileged, Service Life, etc. Besides this, Virgo represents analytical or critical skills of people, being perfectionist and healing abilities. Virgo's basic representation is the lady coming in boat with wheat and herbs in her hands. So, Virgo is basically a sign of healing. Virgo consists of next set of 2 and half nakshatra. i.e. Uttara-Phalguni, Hasta and Chitra. Virgo's lord is Mercury.
Sun - As Sun rules Leo and Uttara-Phalguni, Sun's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Uttara Phalguni/Leo.
Mercury - As Mercury rules Virgo, Mercury's position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Uttara Phalguni/Virgo.
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Rahu in Uttara Phalguni Nakshatra – Rahu is in enemy nakshatra/sign in Leo portion ruled by Sun here and it will be in Mercury’s sign in Virgo portion. As it is nakshatra of hard work, working with details/analysis, especially in financial/legal field, and as Rahu explodes the results, this position can expand make someone highly analytical, perfectionist, detail oriented and hard working. Especially if Rahu is in Virgo portion, mostly they are working in financial nature of work or in Legal side of work. They can easily be seen as Chartered Accountants, Stock Market experts and financial analysts. This can make a person obsessive towards analyzing and perfecting things. In other fields too, they can be seen as perfectionists. In Leo section, they will try to gain authority, recognition and fame through this analysis & detail oriented work and in Virgo section, they will be more about putting best efforts to serve people in these fields. They can also love to draft agreements, conditions and clauses. So, they can be seen as lawyers too, especially in Virgo section. Best representation of this placement can be a banker who is working in loan section. They can naturally be gravitated towards conflicts and disputes.
In relationship matters, as most of Uttara Phalguni falls in Virgo sign which is sign of conflicts, it shows relationship can get into conflicts easily for them. It is a challenging position for relationship where person may keep that perfectionist attitude with partner and due to which relationship can be spoilt. They may have desire of multiple relationships. In Leo section, relationship can also have ego clashes.
Role of Sun – Sun placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Uttara Phalguni and Leo's lord.
Role of Mercury - Mercury placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Virgo's lord.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Rahu in Uttara Phalguni. So, we always need to take a holistic view of chart rather than just 1 planetary position.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Rahu in Uttara Phalguni can work in a chart.
