Symbol For Nakshatra Ardra
Its main symbol is a diamond, even though many scholars see a Teardrop as its primary symbol. As the name of this nakshatra relates to moisture and wetness, the symbolism of the tear drop associates it with all kinds of sorrow. The tear drop symbolism also relates to water in all its droplet forms, like the early morning dew drops on the leaves or the thousands of drops left around after the rain has come and gone. These dew drops, as we can see, symbolize freshness and renewal. Even tear drops are part of a cleansing process and relate more to the dispersal of sorrow rather than the actual production of it. This cathartic process is similar to that of a baby, which can cry one minute and be smiling the next as if nothing happened.
