Ashwini Nakshatra

Ashwini (0°00′ – 13°30′ Aries)

Each star we see in the night sky is a burning hot sun, much like our own Sun. In astronomy, the twin stars that make up the nakshatra of Ashwini are called Alpha Arietis and Beta Arietis. Indeed, the ruling deities for Ashwini star in Vedic Astrology are the divine twin physicians – the Ashwini Kumaras. While people born under Ashwini may traditionally take up a career in medicine, they also innately carry a healing energy and their ability to heal others through prayer is greatly enhanced. The Ashwini Kumaras have a youthful appearance and bestow this ageless presence along with a charming innocence to those born under Ashwini. The symbol for this star is a horse’s head, which signifies power, dignity and swiftness. As the first star in the cycle of the nakshatras, Ashwini carries the energy of beginnings. Those born under Ashwini hold the ability to initiate or pioneer ideas and activities. They must be cautious as not to begin something they cannot finish. Ashwini is known as the quickest of all nakshatras and behaves in a direct and to-the-point manner. Just like an untamed horse, they can be confident and independent but do not like to be told what to do. Ashwini gives focus to self-improvement and wants to feel unique among its peers. This is a spontaneous star with active intelligence and sincerity.

Ashwini – The Horse Head

Ashwini (00.00-13.20 Aries) signifies commencement, particularly the energies of Ketu. It is marked by a pair of bright stars in the constellation of Aries. Ashwini is translated into ‘Born of a Female Horse’ or ‘Horse Lady’. As an alternative, Ashwini is also known as Asvayuj or ‘she who yokes horses’.

The constellation is symbolized by the head of a horse reflecting commencement (of a journey). While the horse itself is a symbol of power, strength, courage and vitality, its head indicates swift action.

Behavioral Characteristics

Ashwini denotes spontaneity and hence this nakshatra is marked by vitality as well as initiative. In fact, Ashwini is different from the other nakshatras in its initiating aspect. A native of this nakshatra is fast and agile. The core principle of Ashwini is concerned with rapidity and pace, to achieve which one needs to be concise and direct. People born on this nakshatra, demonstrate a straightforward and no nonsense approach in their transactions.

If you are a person whose birth chart shows a prominent Ashwini, you don’t waste time in translating your impulses into thought and thought into deed, which is why your behavior may be regarded as impulsive. This is at times good, although in negative manifestation, it may be rash. Hence, in all their hurry, they may be wasting their time.

Full of life, the natives of this nakshatra are intelligent, happy go lucky creatures who are highly intelligent. They look youthful and enthusiastic, and age scarcely shows in their appearance as it shows in those born under other nakshatras. With a rising Ashwini in your ascendant, you are likely to be short, sportive, strong, appealing and innocent. It is true that these natives can be sorted from the crowd by their innocent appearance and childlike disposition. The ruling deities of this nakshatra, the Ashwini Kumaras, are attributed with charisma, style, sophistication and lavishness which are prominent in physical and mental nature of the natives.

They also have a strong and adventurous spirit that is blindly attracted to the challenges posed by the unknown. An exploratory spirit is marked with courage and Ashwini has an abundance of it. This daring nakshatra has a chivalric facet to it that derives pleasure from pursuits of heroism. For instance, a 90 year old rock climber could be none other than an Ashwini native. On the flip side, overdone chivalry is apparent in lack of prudence or eagerness to learn from past mistakes and absence of contemplation.

These natives are marked with a distinct sense of humor that is jovial and innocent. Ashwini born persons have this need for movement which makes them failures at activities that require patience. They are helpful and sensitive to the needs of others. Their energetic disposition makes them acquire short term, instead of enduring wisdom. Generally, these people love to stay well dressed and hence splurge on clothes and accessories.

Ashwini natives are straightforward people who love others with similar characteristics. Unique in their pursuits, these natives feel that they are different from others, which is translated in their pioneering spirit. Resourceful and independent, the natives of Ashwini are competent and enduring.

Sacred Energy Vortex: Sri Bhava Aushadeeswarar Temple

The sacred temple that resonates with the Ashwini star is located in a village called Thiruthuraipoondi in Tamil Nadu, India. Those born under Ashwini star should visit this temple as frequently as possible.
