Found this nice explanation for the attack "Star Gentle Uterus":

"To answer the last bit about Sailor Star Maker's attack being "Star Gentle Uterus"...

Nearly all the characters in Sailor Moon, and certainly ALL the Sailor Scouts, are inspired by religious or mythical characters. Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask are literally named after characters from Greek / Roman mythology (Serenity and Endymion). The 4 main inner-scouts are both based on their greek counterparts AND the directional mythologies and elements of Feng Shui (Mercury is Water, Mars is Fire, Jupiter is Wood, Venus is Metal).

The Sailor Star Lights are based on the three deities of the Hinduism Trimurti; Shiva, Brahma and Vishnu. Sailor Star Fighter is based on Shiva the Destroyer, which his why her attack is verbally associated with physical power (Star Serious Laser). Sailor Star Healer is based on Vishnu the Preserver, which is why her attack is verbally associated with pain and healing (Star Sensitive Inferno), but is more a case for her name, which is literally Healer. Sailor Star Maker is the easiest to connect, since she represents Brahma, the Maker, and literally shares his title. Her attack of "Star Gentle Uterus" is meant to draw from the idea of fertility and birth, since Brahma is associated with being the Creator.

I often read Buzzfeed, so I'm surprised I haven't seen this Sailor Moon post before. Anyway, yep, the Hindu Trimurti theory is a well-known fan theory, and it's actually mentioned in this wiki in the Sailor Starlights' main page (if you visit that article, you'll find several links to essays that both accept and dispute this theory). I don't think it needs to be repeated here, though, if that's what you're suggesting. Silver (talk) 16:05, 13 October 2014 (MST)
Okay, never mind - I added a small note here too that makes reference to it without including speculation. Thanks for the heads-up! Silver (talk) 16:23, 13 October 2014 (MST)
