All the 4 Padas are located in Libra Sign and the Gana(Trait) for swati is Devta(Godly).

Unless Saturn is involved the inner feelings and outer behavior of Swati natives tends to be poles apart. Having said that great celebrities including Amitabh Bachchan, M. K Gandhi, Jimmy Carter among others are born in this nakshatra. In short this is the nakshatra of celebrities especially if both Moon and Ascendant are in Swati Nakshatra.
