Qualities of Ashwini: 

Brahma: Ashwini is a very fresh unpredictable and powerful creative energy. It can be highly creative and innovative. It can even breathe fresh life into what appears to be dead. 

Sage Marichi

Sage Mirichi: “Ray of Light” Instructs his students on dharma, especially the laws of the Brahmin caste: ceremony around food, cooking, eating, etiquette (bhojana vidhi), marriage ritual, offering of the the bride (kanyadana phalam), offering water to the ancestral lineage (tarpanam), rules of cleanliness and purity (shouchavidhi), casual acts of piety (naimittika sanani), pujas for the gods (devarchana), rules for homa, fire ritual (homa vidhi). Denounced renunciation in favour of completing worldly duties. Very harsh punishments for not following the proper rules of caste. 

Deva: The planets relating with the Devas will promote more refined and righteous behaviour; but may struggle with pride and entitlement. They are more capable of understanding the subtitles of life. This is also used in chart matching. They say it’s best if both parties belong to the same tribe (8 points). However, they say that a deva and a rakshasa will get one point for the attraction of opposites). This is a very important classification suggesting that they way these three tribes (devas, humans & rakshasa) live is so different as to have a major effect on marriage compatibility and living together. 

Vaishya – Merchant Caste: Usually service providers, innovators in business. They find old things, even dead things and give them new life. This can be cars, ideas, people, junk, but they love to travel and be independent and they will quite often find a way to do this with the help of a partner in the background. Sales, transport, middle men between those who want a product and those who have one. Lots of wasted efforts but the successes are worth it. The Merchant planets do good business here. This is also used in chart matching to measure the balance in power between two people. They say it’s best if the two people belong to the same caste, otherwise the man should belong to the higher caste. 

Dharma: Motivated by dharma; reaching for one’s own highest spiritual potential. Can bring dharma into the marketplace. Planets placed here will help you find your purpose in life. When the moon is here they will certainly find theri dharma in helping, healing, restoring, providing quick innovative service. 

Laghu / Kshipra – Swift / Light: Supports any kind of quick, light activity like short travel, quick easy interactions with people, sports, games, arts & crafts, educational pursuits, decorating, dressing up, dating, hanging out with friends. It’s a good day to appreciate the simple things in life, treat yourself to a little tender-love n care, a spa treatment, yoga, as well as most holistic remedies. It’s also good for most of the “moveable” activities, like travel, and making changes as long and they’re painry quick and easy. Making money move in various ways, especially light, swift transactions: buying, selling, borrowing, conducting trade, or the personal side of business getting to know clients, having a business lunch. This is similar energy we see on Thursday. Ashwini, Pushya, Hasta, Abhijit are all swift & light.  

Passive: Planets here will be more passive about achieving their goals: allowing things to happen rather than “forcing” things. The moon is said to persuade through temptation so she does well here. Venus draws us in by her promises of beauty so she also does well. Saturn is the master of patience so he also does well. The active planets can cause a bit of trouble in trying to force things that we should just allow to happen naturally. 

Tamasic: Darkness, ignorance, dullness, inertia. There’s a certain level of ignorance that comes from not really knowing what the effect of activity will be. They also tend to waste a lot of time and resources on innovations that may may be ahead of their time or merely not valued. It takes 100 bad ideas before a good one comes along, and it’s hard to tell which one is the good one. Even lord Brahma is known to have created both good and evil. There can be a lot of apathy, and boredom even with good ideas. It will be hard to sustain anything because they will always be on to something new. 

Earth Element: Heavy, slow, cold, dense, stable, gross, grounded. Earth + Water = Cooperation. Water does not cooperate with Air and impedes Fire. Fire does not cooperate with Earth and impedes Water. Air does not cooperate with Water and impedes Earth

Vata: Air + Ether = Cold, dry, light, moving, subtle, clear, hard, pervasive, rough. Flighty, spiritual, thin. Disturbed by bitter (Mars), astringent (Saturn), pungent (Sun). Pacified by sweet (Jupiter) & sour (Venus). Air does not cooperate with Water and impedes Earth .

Male Nakshatra: Masculine planets exhibit masculine traits like strength, bravery, and protection in a balanced way; they tend to do well here, like getting a man to do a man’s job. Feminine planets here are like getting a woman to do a man’s job. More planets is masculine signs and nakshatras which give a more masculine disposition. 

Triyanga Mukha – Facing Straight Ahead (Level): This is a level-headed and forward looking position. It’s good for mundane, everyday tasks that allows us to prepare for the future. This nakshatra promotes an honest, realistic assessment. It marks a good time to level with others or yourself, to ensure that the playfield and the ground are all level. It can be a good time to start surveying, building, laying pipe, or sticking a level on anything. Mercury and Venus share this perspective. Ashwini, Mrigasira, Punarvasu, Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Anuradha, Jyeshta and Revati are all forward looking.  

South: planets here are likely to give their results in the southern direction. When this asterism is placed in the southern quadrant of the chart it gains extra strength to give results.


Male Horse / Stallion / Stud: (Satabhisha is the female horse). Enemy of the buffalo. 

Powerful & courageous with an eagerness to act and move swiftly. Their abundance of energy can sometimes make them nervous, fidgety and high strung. 

Males and females choose each other, mating is usually over in a few minutes (“arrives quickly to the destination”). Normal sexual behaviours include teasing, marking, flechmen response, erection, mounting. If the female approves she will eventually lift her tail, show off her vulva and urinate, Due to heart problems some males faint and fall over after mating.  

Pairs well with Shatabisha which is ruled by the Female Horse or Mare. 

Auspicious Activities: 

When the moon passes thru Ashwini it’s a good day to keep things moving and keep it light and easy going. A bit of travel or adventure, treasure hunts, dating, making love. Ashwini is not comfortable when things get too heavy or demands patience and commitment. It’s a ganda-moola nakshatra, especially the early pada, due to the unstable energy of moving from a water sign to a fire sign. Moon transiting Ashwini can be unpredictable, random and raw. It’s like the spring points of Chinese medicine at the tips of the fingers and toes; it’s very sensitive energy. . 

Perhaps this is what makes it such a good day for healing, rejuvenation, breathing new life into old things. This is the best day of the month to begin a healing routine or to merely use the day for this purpose. Recharge and refresh. But keep it light. Commerce can go well here as well as any of the arts and crafts. It’s not a great day to spend big money unless you intend on throwing it to the wind. The outcome can be very unpredictable. Innovators could get some blessings on this day. But the great benefits will be found in helping others or asking for help. Ashwini likes to bring people with different skills together to work on common projects. One might also consider what can be done to inspire others. Lending money is said to be favourable in quick nakshatra as it’s said that it will be quickly returned to you. Marriage in Ashwini, however, is not said to be favourable. Stick with quick, light, creative activities.  

Special Considerations

  • Ashwini is a Ganda-Moola nakshatra It sits on a junction point of fire and water. It’s inauspicious. A special ceremony is recommended every month when the moon transits one’s natal Moon in these nakshatra. Moon in 1st pada of Ashwini can bring suffering to one’s father. 
  • Mars is moolatrikona for the first 12ºs of Aries. (Basically all of Ashwini nakshatra.)
  • Sun is exaltation at 10º Aries.
  • Worshiped on Dwitiya, the second day of the lunar fortnight.

Gods & Symbols of Ashwini

Ashwini Kumars:

Ashwini Kumar

Handsome, youthful twins in golden armour riding on a golden chariot with 3 seats. They are the physicians of the gods with the power to quickly reach their destination or objective and provide healing service and help to others. Their names are Dashra (bringing help) & Nasatya (truthfulness). 

Sons of Lord Surya and Sangya (or Sandhya). They were conceived when their parents took the form of a Mare and Stallion. Saturn is their eldest brother (Step brother) who was born from Chaaya when Sandhya went to stay at her father’s to get out of the glare of Surya. When the two got back together she soon gave birth to Yama and Yamuni, but again ran away to the Himalayas to get out of the glare of her brightly shining husband. She disguised herself as a Mare and wandered the forests. Her father, Vishwakarma, took away some of the glare from Surya and then he went to find his wife. He took the form of a Stallion, his wife swooned and soon gave birth to the Ashwini Kumars.

They worship Brahma who gave them their good looks and knowledge of Ayurveda. They later convinced sage Dadhichi to teach them Sanjeevani to revive the dead. Knowing that lord Indra would chop off the Sage’s head for imparting the secret, they replaced it with a horse’s head so that when Lord Indra took it they could easily revive him with their new knowledge and replace his own head back on the body. 

They were at first outcast from the Gods. Indra did not at first invite them to the ceremony for drinking the Soma that came out of the great churning. He said they spent too much time with humans  and perhaps they had also broken the injunction of working with the human body and touching human flesh. Brahmins are not technically permitted to be doctors and these kinds of things. They become untouchable brahmins; still brahman, but the lowest kind of brahmin; the same as those who work the death ceremony. Indra also had the idea that as physicians of the gods they were more like servants to the gods than gods themselves.

Chyavana was the son of Lord Bhrigu. He spent most of his time in meditation and practicing austerities. He was an old and feeble invalid deep in meditation at his hermitage when the king showed up. Chyavana’s body had become covered in ants (some say it was cockroaches) with just his eyes sticking out. The king, baffled by this mound of insects, poked what he thought was a hole in the mound with an arrow and blinded the great sage. He was so horrified when he discovered what he had done that he offered his beautiful daughter, Sukanya, as a bride to take care of him. 

Tantric form of Maha Laxmi as worshipped by Chyavan

The Ashwins, seeing this beautiful young woman with an old decrepit husband, decided to try to seduce her. She refused their advances, but suggested that she could help them gain entrance to the Soma drinking ceremony if they helped rejuvenate her husband. They agreed and used a three-part method in treating Chyavana: soaking in a mineral water hot spring, massaging a herbal oils into the body (kayakalp), and having him ingest a rejuvenation paste called Chyawanprash, an Ayurvedic dietary supplement that is still used today. Amla is the main ingredient. It’s said to be the best of all the general tonics for anti ageing, sexual potency, improved respiration and digestion. 

Chyavana then went to speak to Indra about allowing the Ashwinis to partake in Soma, but Indra would not change his mind. So, Chyavana created a demon called Mada to change his mind (mada is a little like hard alcohol, or toxicity that occurs in Aries when Saturn is here). Mada proved to be more than he could handle so he decided in favour of the young Ashwini twins. This is how they became immortal. 

They replaced Vispala’s leg with an iron one (prosthetics). They restored sight and power to another man. 

Nakula and Sahadev (pandava brothers) are children of the Ashwini twins. One became a great doctor and healer while the other became a great mathematician and astrologer. 

Associated with the rising of dawn, the dispellers of darkness, the light bringers, Usha, 

They restored the eyesight of a man who had been blinded by his own father for slaughtering and feeding 101 sheep to a wolf. 

Curing impotence, helping overcome the obstacles and disharmony of married life, and helping in child birth. They help other animals as well as humans.   

They are associated with the rising of dawn, the dispellers of darkness, the light bringers, Usha,

Horse: Symbol of freedom movement and vitality. Providing transportation, hauling goods, free, but attending to our needs.


Knees & Upper Feet

    • Problems due to heat, inflammation, fever
    • Insect stings, malaria, smallpox
    • Head & brain injuries, fever, headaches, mental illness
    • Prosthetics, eye problems (glasses), hearing problems (hearing aids)
    • Guillain-Barre syndrome often begins with tingling and weakness starting in your feet and legs and spreading to your upper body and arms
    • Gout shows early symptoms in the upper feet. 
    • Chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) is a condition that causes swollen feet due to damaged valves or from standing or sitting for extended periods. Somewhat related to this is a weak heart which can cause foot swelling due to not being able to pump the blood hard enough. Blood clots have also been known to cause swelling in the legs. 
    • Liver & Kidney disease also show symptoms in the feet. 
    • When the moon is with Mars energy in astrology we have to assume something related to blood will arise as red and white blood cells come together. 
    • Transportation, mobility, access

The Stars of Ashwini: 

First three stars of Aries located on the Head of the Ram (or horse): Gamma-Arietis (Mesarthim) 3º 11′, Beta-Arietis (Sheratan) 3º 58′ & Alpha-Arietis (Hamal) 7º 40′,

This was the vernal equinox, the point where the sun crosses the celestial equator, in 68 BCE. The point of contact between the celestial equator and the celestial meridian. This point marks the split between “western astrology”, the Tropical chart and “Vedic astrology” and the sidereal chart. This equinox position changes by about 1º every 73 years so it’s currently at about 6º Pisces. By 2597 the vernal equinox will enter the final degrees of Aquarius. After about 26 000 years the equinox will again return to the first degree of Aries. Known as “the indicator of the reborn sun.”

Binary stars beta & gamma rotate around each other completing a cycle once every 107 days. Beta (Sheraton), a fixed star, rotates on its axis at high speeds and while generating energy through thermonuclear fusion at its core. There appears to be a ring of dust around these two, but it’s not dust, it’s chemically peculiar. Gamma (Mesarthim) is said to have seeded the world with inventions which will carry us into the future. When the moon is here it is said to be a good time to buy cattle, plant crops or travel.

Mesarthim and Sheraton are said to have the nature of Saturn & Mars: malicious, thieving, merciless, fiendish, repulsive and a liar. Accidents, violent death, bodily injuries, destruction, war and earthquakes occur. There is a danger of acting foolish and  impulsive.  Mesarthim is more administrative and less impulsive. Said to rule the throat: Mars and Saturn are said to give throat problems when located here.

Alpha-Arietes (Hamal): the “death wound.” The brightest star of Aries, 48th brightest star in the sky. Located mid forehead of the ram. Often used for navigation. The greek built several temples that aligned with Hamal. According to Ptolemy this star is as malicious and thieving as Mesarthim & Sheraton. It causes violence, accidents, and premeditated crime. Mars or Venus here are said to give problems with romantic and/or sexual relationships. Rules over the parathyroid gland. 

Tree of Ashwini

Poison Nut Tree: ~ Strychnos nux-vomica

Poison Nut Tree: Strychnos nux-vomica

A medium sized deciduous tree that grows in open habitat. Short, thick truck. Hard dense wood. Flowers are a small pale green colour with a foul odour and bloom in the cold season. 

Strychnine: Tall green to orange fruit about the size of an apple contains seeds that are highly poisonous, intensely bitter source of strychnine (a poison commonly used in pesticide which causes muscular convulsions and death by asphyxia in less than 6 hours) & brucine, which is less poisonous than strychnine but still has toxic properties. Seeds are the shape of a flattened disk with hairs radiating out.

Chinese and Ayurvedic herbal concoctions for anti-inflammatory & analgesic agents. Added to alcohol (like rubbing alcohol) to make it unfit for human consumption. Herbal medicine claims strychnos to provide treatment for cancer and heart disease.

Huda Ayurvedic concoction: seeds are soaked for 5 days in water followed by 2 days in milk and then boiled in milk with other ingredients, very minute doses are used as an antidote for alcohol and drug poisoning. Can also increase muscular activity. The wood burns nice and can be used for building.

Some say Ras Tree, Coconut, or Pomegranate also belong to this nakshatra. 

Key Themes: 

Quick, youthful, head, to get help, the love speed, they can be premature. Travel and transportation, natural healing.

Ashwini people  are innovative, impulsive individuals whose quick spontaneous activity inspires and gives energy to others. They do well in emergencies but they can also be the cause of emergencies as they often act without thinking. The energy of Ashwini can be very unstable. They are good at starting things but rarely see things through to completion.  

They do well in any field that takes a lot of initiative, they like adventure and often become leaders,  pioneers, or innovators in their field. They make good adventure guides, sales reps (especially travelling sales people), or  inventors. They love the feeling of being out on the open road and can work in any field related to transport.

They are usually nice looking and youthful even in their older years. As the  physicians of the gods they teach humans how to heal, regenerate, and maintain their youth. Strong placements here give healing powers, knowledge of the psycho-physical body and Ayurveda. Ketu’s rulership can bring healing with light or sound. Not just new age music therapies, but things like ultrasound or laser eye surgery; working with polarity, pulse and propulsion and the sciences related to these things. They are said to be sensitive to vibrational frequency and may be clairaudient. From the point of view of string theory the Ashwinis represent the wave and the particle, two completely different realities whose mutual existence is theoretically impossible.

Their helping nature can also lead them into emergency response work like police, fire department, ambulance, military. Jobs that involved a dispatcher or on-call type jobs where they have to drop everything and go. Anything related to birth, rebirth, rebirthing, or being born again often relates to Ashwini. A cure initiated in Shatabhisha bears fruit in Ashwini (both nakshatras relate with poisons, herbal medicines, pharmaceuticals, and drugs).

Their ability to revive and regenerate is not limited to healing or curing the psycho-physical body; they are good at taking things apart and putting them back together: they like to tinker with all kinds of things. This can give them powerful technical skills making them good at mathematics, science, astrology, as well as through mechanics, repair or renovation; making the old new again.

Their impulsiveness can be disruptive to married life. They like to flirt and have fun but also have little discipline for drawing lines or respecting boundaries so they can easily get carried away. They are often sleek, sexy and powerful like a racehorse and common sayings like, “sowing your oats,” letting “wild horses run,” and “whoa there little filly” are clearly applicable. They don’t like to feel “tied down.” They often question their sense of belonging and may feel the need to prove themselves to the community, but even if they do this they still tend to feel disconnected. This can lead to a kind-of “Great Helper  Syndrome.” 

They like to work in pairs or with a partner who may be physically present, distant or even disembodied. There is often something unusual about the coupling. They need a lot of autonomy.


    • With skills training and discipline they can achieve a lot, without such boundaries they tend to run free, acting without concern for anyone but themselves (and sometimes not even for themselves). 
    • Ganesha can be worshiped as a remedial measure for this nakshatra. Ganesha is the first to be worshiped, representing the beginning of things. He is also the remover of obstacles, and he is the deity related to the planet Ketu, the ruler of Ashwini.
    • Sandaya vandanam, looking at the sunrise through water poured by one’s own cupped hands. The energy of this nakshatra is a lot like light reflecting off the water.

Planetary Rulerships of Ashwini

Clint Eastwood exercising free speech.

 Ketu: Headless, unbound, limitless, misty, mystical, dispersing, ambivalent, random, numb, odd, useless, eccentric, observing, witnessing, foggy, cloudy, abandoned, wandering, surrendered, empty, vacuous, scatter, nebulise defrock, dematerialise, disengaged, severed. Ghosts, refugees, aliens, saints, pilgrims, homeless, other-worldly. Ketu provides a blank screen for others to project their desires upon them.

Mars – Aries: Fresh, direct penetration, active, assertive, impatient, anticipation, impulsive, crude, daring, dominant, pioneer, competitive, sharp, cutting, kinetic energy, dynamic, direct pursuit, direct conquest, head to head, courage, first to arrive. Rules the head and blood.

Mars + Ketu: Innovation gets expressed in a detached way. Energy is fresh, unbound, chaotic. They are quick to initiate things, but lack follow through. Can be oddly detached from their own activities. No boundaries to penetration, initiation, or direct action. The cutting and numbing effect can be very surgical and precise, or messy like the birth of a child. Mars blood, fire and steel and Ketu doesn’t care, he can penetrate anything and scatter it around. We are reminded of Ashwini’s significance in amputations, prosthetics, but also vehicles, transport, emergency response, search and rescue. Maybe what keeps Ashwini people so youthful is knowing that they could die any day. Ashwini itself is not a particularly violent or destructive nakshatra itself, it just has a way of getting involved in those kinds of situations through Mars and Ketu. Placements in Ashwini can be very supportive for people, like police or military, who use violence for justice. They are often professionals at finding and extracting. Mars gives them power and courage while Ketu makes them fearless.

Ashwini Ascendant

First Porsche ever build. The founder has his ascendant in Ashwini.

Female Native: ”… she will possess a modest, clean, wholesome, and admirable character. She will have an inherent respect and admiration for older people, particularly her parents but she will be independent of them because of her ability to earn her own living and to make her own career. She will have a very good figure and even, white teeth. A capable and self-sufficient person.” — Shil-Ponde

Male Native: ”… a happy carefree disposition, very intelligent, in fact a rather above average person in this respect. He will be quite successful and his financial status will be such that he will seldom have to worry about money matters. In spite of his ability to achieve success he will be modest concerning himself and his achievements.” — Shil-Ponde

Aries Rising: “Independent thinking, courageous and sensitive. Middle stature, ruddy complexion, sharp sight, long face and neck, head broad at the temples and narrow at the chin, hair is brown, light and curly; mark or scar on head or temples, wide-set teeth and round eyes. Lovers of scientific thought, enterprising and ambitious with an ability to make plans. They dislike being guided by others; are intense when interested, vehement when excited. They are stubborn and frank. Quick tempered, they resent imposition and are libel to go to extremes. Hot constitution. They love beauty, art and elegance. Practical ideas. If Aries is afflicted they suffer with diseases to the head. Mental affliction and derangement are also likely if Saturn and Moon are in Aries.” — B.V. Raman

This causes a bit of a horsey look with long teeth and a hee-haw laugh. I come from a part of Canada known as Cowboy country: wide belt buckles, tall hats, wranglers and country music. But there’s more to it than that, we can recognise a cowboy by their swagger, their love for the open country and freedom. These innovators are gonna do what they’re gonna do regardless of what anyone else has to say about it. They might have the cowboy swagger, high confidence and strong independence. Speed and timing is important to them; they like to be the first to arrive at their destination, come in first, be the first to do something. They might like racing and competition. And everything might be a competition one way or another. 

Gottselig and Porsche were certainly into racing, Ma Huateng was given the perfect Ashwini nick-name. Nikola Tesla is still talked about for his inventions in telecommunications, Serena Williams has a list of firsts related to being a black woman and as an exceptional athlete. Long term durable relationships seem to be missing from the lives of these people. I know a couple who have maintained the durability, but there is almost no contact between them. 

Even those who do not become wealthy generally have money coming in due to their busy helpful natures. They are very free spirited so will also prefer to work independently, or at least call the shots. There is a likelihood that they will have a twin, especially if the ascendant lord is in the 3rd or 11th house.   

Ascendant in Ashwini Pada 1, Aries Navamsha: “Gracious personality, enjoys good power and exchange ideas with learned people. Occupies a high position in a company or government service. Affected with excess bile complaints. If this extension also is the Lagna (ascendant) and Jupiter also is positioned here, one lives up to 83 years. Even though you are a good executive, you are not generally liked by your associates and employees. — Bepin Behari

Males tend to be “Fat has short nails. Eyes are large, may have buck teeth. Fond of jewels, bracelets, rings, and other ornaments of attire. Artistic.” — Shil-Ponde

Ascendant in Ashwini Pada 2, Taurus Navamsha: ” Not a good position. tall and clever. You are fond of eating spicy food and drink. You will have trouble through the opposite sex. Unless remedial measures are observed, you cannot get out of poverty. You are selfish and ambitious .” — Bepin Behari

“Fat, has short nails. Eyes are large May be a scientist, philosopher, writer, Will be a leader in any walk of life. Walks very fast; has a habit of pacing back and forth likes sea voyages and may deal with or work in foreign countries.” — Shil-Ponde 

Ascendant in Ashwini Pada 3, Gemini Navamsha: “You will be much learned and expert in various sciences and religious scriptures. You are exceedingly active. You are a good friend to those whom you can impress.” — Bepin Behari

“Fat, has short nails. Eyes are large May be a scientist, philosopher, writer, Will be a leader in any walk of life. Walks very fast; has a habit of pacing back and forth likes sea voyages and may deal with or work in foreign countries.” — Shil-Ponde

Ascendant in Ashwini Pada 4, Cancer Navamsha: ” This position is the most outstanding position for Moon, provided Sun is not in conjunction. You attain a high education and knowledge in various branches of sciences with your own efforts. Mostly persons born in 12th degree to 13th degree of Ashvini are officers or doctors or persons holding very high position in government. Doctors born in this part of Ashwini Nakshatra become successful in the medical field. The same is the result when the Ascendant falls in 4th part of Aśvini even if the Moon is positioned elsewhere. Your distinguishing feature is that there will be a scar or mark on the head or face.” — Bepin Behari

“Hard, lean body. Fond of pets and animals. May be a preacher or a minister.” — Shil-Ponde

Martin Luther King has Jupiter in Ashwini while Malcom X has Moon & Mercury in Ashwini.

Mercury has a bit of a tough time with this energy and they may be seeking to go down two different roads heading in the opposite directions at the same time.

Mercury in the 1st house: Rules the 3rd & 6th houses for Aries ascendant.

  • Phala Deepika: Mercury in 1st house person “enjoys longevity, is sweet, soft, appropriate in speech, sharp-whetted and learned in the Sastras.” 
  • Jataka Bharnam: Mercury in 1st house “makes a person peace loving, curious, extremely generous, of good conduct, patient, learned with knowledge of the arts.” “Benefic influences will certainly make them a craftsman and artist, good at math, writing, astrology, business, trade, education, oratory, printing and grammar. This Mercury destroys the negative influence of other planets. The natives body has brilliance and they are vigorous and energetic. They will appear much younger than they actually are.” “Moon & Mercury conjunction gives receptivity, sharp memory, imagination, love for travels, writing, knowledge of language. The native is most excellent in eloquence, wealthy, handsome, kind hearted, meek, has great love for his wife, is very talkative and performs many religious deeds.”
  • B.V. Raman: Mercury in the 1st house: “This position makes the subject humorous. Quickness of wit and mental ingenuity tend to be strongly marked.

If Venus is strong the native will own conveyance but it will always give him trouble.”

  • Phala Deepika: Jupiter in 5th house person “suffers at the hands of his sons; he is intelligent and an advisor to rulers.”
  • Jataka Bharnam: Jupiter in 5th house enjoys the happiness of a good son and a good friend. “The person has knowledge of mantras (spells and charms), is soft spoken and has much wealth and conveyances. This person is an epicurean, believing pleasure to be the greatest good of life. He makes good use of intelligence and logic and may gain wealth from investments, trading shares, speculation, lottery or gambling. But if this Jupiter is poorly placed with malefic influence there will be loss of son.”
  • BPHS: 1st lord in the 5th house: “The native will have mediocre happiness though sons, the first born is not likely to live, he will be honourable, wrathful and a favourite of the king. Difficulty with first born is generally true if in the case of debilitation and may prove true for other ascendants if there is additional affliction; Sagittarius and Pisces ascendants will be particularly sensitive to affliction since Jupiter is said to be the destroyer of the effects of the house occupied by him.”
  • B.V. Raman: 1st lord in the 5th house: “The first child does not survive, not much happiness from children, short tempered, subservient and serving others. If fortified, he will be in the good graces of rules or powerful political parties and likely be absorbed into trade of diplomatic service. He will propitiate deities consistent with indications of the 5th lord.”
  • BPHS: 4th lord in the 5th house:”The native will be happy, a favourite of all, a devotee to lord Vishnu, virtuous, honourable and will possess self-earned wealth.”

  • Jataka Bharnam: Jupiter in 6th house “gives a love for music and a desire for fame and glory. The person will be victorious over enemies, but will be lazy in completing tasks once they are started. The person is full of pride and will show favour to his own caste. If this Jupiter is well placed with favourable aspects the person will benefit from faithful servants. If this Jupiter is poorly placed the person will suffer liver disorders and ulcers etc.”
  • BPHS: 2nd lord in the 6th house: “If conjunct a benefic the native will earn wealth from his enemies. If with a malefic he will have losses through his enemies and be weak thighed. For Aries ascendant, debilitated Venus will bring loss of wealth, clashes with family, weakness to wives health, depression in her, conflict in marital relations, loss of family wealth, loss though partner and friends, and deterioration of sexual energy. For Gemini Ascendant there will be loss of wealth. The native will see a rise in fall of wealth at an early age. Exalted Jupiter here will bring much paternal wealth, but as he ages he will spend most of it. For other ascendants the general effects are: 1. Theft of money, 2. Loss of valuables like jewellery, 3. Litigation over paternal property, 4. Money lent out is not returned, 5. Obstruction of incoming wealth, 6. Disease of the nose, face or teeth, 7. Fear of water for the spouse and fear of her collapse during a journey or something.”
  • BPHS: 5th lord in the 6th house: “The natives sons will be equal to his enemies, or [he] will die, or the native will acquire a son by adoption or purchase. Obstacles to producing a son may be the result of some disease. If there is additional malefic influence here the native will have no issues, and if a child is born it will not live for long. For Leo ascendant this effect is felt in a particularly cruel way.”

Jupiter in the 7th house: Rules the 3rd & 6th houses for Libra ascendant.

  • Phala Deepika: Jupiter in 7th house “gives good wife and sons. He is amiable and more generous than his father.” 
  • Jataka Bharnam: Jupiter in 7th house make s the natives mind joyfully engaged in reading the Shastras. He is by nature courteous, very happy through wife and wealth, an excellent advisor, and good poet.” “This native earns a high income, gets success in their hopes, and has a great personality. He enjoys physical and bodily health, and get cooperation from their younger brother and other partners. This is considered very favourable for achieving grandeur, majesty and prosperity.” 
  • B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 7th house: “Diplomatic and kind hearted, the native gets a virtuous, good looking and chart wife. He will get a good education and gain through marriage. He will be sensitive the the feelings of others. He has a speculative mind and is a good agriculturist. He undertakes pilgrimages to distant places and is superior to his father in his qualities. The native will possess good sons.”
  • BPHS: 3rd lord in the 7th house: “The native will have aptitude for serving the king, he will not be happy during childhood but there can be no doubt that he will get happiness in the end.”
  • BPHS: 6th lord in the 7th house: “The native will be devoid of happiness through wedlock, but will be famous, virtuous, honourable, adventurous and wealthy. Three will be constant tension, quarrelling and fighting with partners and married life can be hell. For Aries and Libra ascendant it is errors of the native himself that cause disharmony as he may deliberately stir up trouble due to the effort of 3rd lord.”
  • Commentary: They tend towards many alliances and partnerships are made but a high degree of freedom is maintained which often brings conflict. Perhaps in the course of travels and tours, or by working in the travel industry. Partnership is rife with “just passing through.” Lots of one-to-one fight or arguments. In some ways they might feel like they are having to constantly defend themselves from a wold that is out to et them. Steven Crowder & Noam Chomsky are in an ideological war with the world in a way that was not so different from the war between teams that Jacques Plante was involved in. A kind of tribal war which defines the atmosphere in which Empress Wu Zetian rose up. Darrek Chauvin has also become a symbol of the ideological war in the USA. There seems to be some touch therapy or therapeutic relationship going on here as well: massage, arresting, fighting, physical exams, pat downs. One might face many law suits and court cases. It may all just be the more unwelcome part of your 6th house job. If they are able to get most of this energy pout in their work, and their partner also has an alternative outlet for this argumentative energy then marriage can be sustained. Spouse might even be a distant figure in a persons life due to the 12th from influence. Expect a lot of quarrelling.

  • Jataka Bharnam: Jupiter in the 8th makes “the native a servant, baser, fowel, dirt, humble, poor, lacking discrimination and discernment, discourteous, given to laziness and suffering from bodily weakness. They may be opposed to learned people and their own father and will not get favour or kindness form distinguished people. The person is diseased, opposed to family traditions and customs, will be base and mean, and suffer insults accordingly.”
  • B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 8th house: “The native will be unhappy but generous hearted. He will live long. He will have difficulty in speech. He may do ignoble deeds but pretend to be noble. He may have liaisons with widows. He will have dirty habits and suffer from coitus. He will have a painless death. If Jupiter is debilitated and Moon is in the 4th house, the native will be menial and always ordered about.”
  • BPHS: 4th lord in the 8th house: “The native will be devoid of domestic and other comforts, will not get much paternal happiness and be equal to a neuter. The native may be separated from his place of birth and may live in secrecy or in hiding. The person may have an aptitude for occult sciences like astrology, tantra, mantra siddhi etc. The native may be prone to addictions, his conveyance will be stolen and/or badly damaged in an accident. The native lacks popularity.”
  • BPHS: 7th lord in the 8th house: “The native will be bereft of marital happiness, his wife will be afflicted with disease, bad natures and will not remain obedient to the native. Gemini ascendant will certainly fell these negative effects. 
  • B.V. Raman: 7th lord in the 8th house: “When well-placed marriage may take place with relatives of the native may marry a rich partner. Affliction will cause the early death of partner while the native may die in distant lands. It gives a sickly and ill tempered partner leading to estrangement and separation.”
  • Commentary: Private alliance and secret agreements. Relationships are mostly non-transparent and non-accountable. Partners are free agents and agreement are continually changing. They might be a teacher of secret occult knowledge.

  • Jataka Bharnam: Jupiter in 9th house “native becomes a minister tot he king, does many auspicious deeds, has knowledge of the shares, is learned, follows rules and is devoted to Brahmins. A well placed Jupiter with benefic influence makes the native well cultured, courteous, polite, a benefactor to others, leads a pious religious life, enjoy showing reverence to wise men, is modest in behaviour, interested in performing yagna, completes penance, and attains a position of distinction among a friendly circle. The person is sincere, pure, transparent without any character flaws.” 
  • B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 9th house: “The native will be an exponent of law or philosophy. If aspired by benefic planets he will acquire much immovable property. He will be fond of his brothers. If Moon or Mars have influence he will become a great military learned or commander. If Sun or Venus join Jupiter here he will become characterless. Beneficially aspected by Saturn make the native live a life of austerity and strive for divine communion. He may visit foreign lands as a lecturer or preacher, etc. He will be conservative and principled.”
  • BPHS: 5th lord in the 9th house: “The native will be a prince, an illustrious author and illustrious in his own family. Confers the native with learning, fame, wealth and honour. The natives sons are given the honour of princes. Debilitated planets here will not give these results.”
  • BPHS: 8th lord in the 9th house: “The native will be a betrayer of his religion and a heterodox. He will be the husband of a wicked wife and will steal the wealth of others. AS belief in his own religion is destroyed he comes to believe in gods of a lower order: ghosts, pishacha, jinx, etc. Once morality is lost is can be easy to steal from others. If Jupiter is debilitated the affliction against religion will be especial strong: athiest, heterodox despite being born from a brahmin or religious family. He will eat prohibited substances.” (The 5M’s are traditionally prohibited: 1. Meat, 2. Fish, 3. Wine, 4. Parched grain 5. …)
  • B.V. Raman: 8th lord in the 9th house: “If conjunct the 9th lord with malefic the native may lose the paternal property and misunderstanding with father will arise. If the Sun is also afflicted the father may die in periods of the 9th lord. If conjoined by benefics the native acquires fathers property and relations with him will be harmonious. If the 9th lord is weak, the native suffers all kinds of hardships, misery and unhappiness. His friends and kinsmen will desert him while his superiors will find fault with him. If the 8th lord falls in the 6th, 8th or 12th navamsha the evil results will be greatly reduced.”
  • Commentary: Celebrated world travellers, freedom lovers, who are transformed by religion, philosophy or ideology. They celebrate all the religious festivals. And become champions of their faith and gurus of secret wisdom. They might have been shocked by some behaviour of their father, but they will keep the secret. They are freedom lovers when it comes to faith and will take some heterodox path. They will undermine the power of orthodoxy, the university, the church in some ways. They can be a lack of faith in faith based institutions and policy makers. It’s possible that some kind of initiation will be needed in their faith and they are often empowered to give such initiation. They bring a lot of their own personality and individuality to their faith but they ultimately know that all gods are one. They might be secretive about their guru or patrons. They are celebrants of open borders  Lots of guru figures and father figures in their life. Women might have relationships with professors

  • B.V. Raman: Jupiter in the 10th house: “The native will be a high official in government, rich, virtuous, steadfast in his spiritual or religious life, wise and happy; he will be guided by higher principles.

  • Commentary: Service roles that may be somehow related to ones religion. They usually have a very fast paced job, and work may come and go. They will like to be very independent and they do not work well for others; which they can do so long as they have their independence. In modern times they often have some involvement with NGOs. Classically this is the wise leader who is a servant to the people. They will often mix dogma or ideology with any help they give to the poor. They are likely to face a lot of criticism for their leadership roles (perhaps from members of their own religious due to jealousy for their freedom), but this is also where they will tap into they spiritual purpose. They offer very effective leadership to the disadvantaged; but they maintain their own freedom in doing so.

Venus in Ashwini

 You will surprise yourself with your choice of partner. There will have to be lots of freedom here, Women with this position will express their femininity through their helpful nature and they will likely have some knowledge of healing, renewing, refreshing. They might seem to come off a little aggressive and are likely to provoke flirtation since this is a masculine nakshatra. The woman has to initiate what she does in a balanced and diplomatic way rather than just plunging into things as Aries is so quick to do. But it’s one of those subtleties that throws off the relationship dynamic. Women can be quite joyfully and youthfully flirting with Venus here. That goes for the women with this placement as well as for the women in the lives of anyone with this placement. But love will hit out of nowhere; sometimes where you don’t even want it to be. The energy polarity can be intense; especially in the first couple of pada. This can, however, make for very nice and helpful sisterly relationships for both sexes. This sisterly dynamic can work in a durable marriage as well; it just might seem odd. Long distance relationships are possible, when one person is always away.  

Sigmund Freud sums up the path of love for Venus in Ashwini quite succinctly. “Let us consider the polarity of love and hate…. Now, clinical observation shows not only that love is with unexpected regularity accompanied by hate (ambivalence), and not only that in human relationships hate is frequently a forerunner of love, but also that in many circumstances hate changes into love and love into hate.”  I would say this is a projection from his Venus. Venus does, after all, represent the bewitching projections that we find ourselves negotiating with.

Ulysses S Grant has Saturn in Ashwini. A hard living cow boy.

Saturn in Ashwini

They might get to experience a second childhood; a renewal in old age. They might feel like they are above the law, or the law doesn’t apply to them, or that they are themselves the law. However this Saturn in the 12th house can incarcerate a person either in prison or hospital, as well as bring a lot of subconscious fears. In the 8th house it may be related to Schizophrenia or Bi-Polar disorder. This is most an inauspicious placement; there can be worries and fears cropping up from everywhere. They can do well in regulating innovation. They will tend to be more conservative in this way. They can also get into conservation efforts like Chuck Norris. Or even concealment of “Breaking News” like Hunter Biden. In most cases these people spend most of their lives trying to find a branch to hold onto while storms rage all around them. And it’s likely they have some kind of skeleton in their closet they would like to keep there. I found it interesting that Mathew McConaughley has made a name for himself saying “woah, woah, woah.” With this position we find the struggle between the wild stallion and the cowboy trying to reign him in, but there are no reins until Bharani so it can be a wild ride. 

Saturn likes to be able to predict the future, he doesn’t like change or anything new and will resist it at all cost. But Ashwini is a completely unpredictable nakshatra where anything can happen. The explosive energy of Mars Ketu would be mostly contained by Saturn, but this might only serve to increase the pressure. They might find their freedom restricted, especially earlier in life.

Bennett Cerf did a lot of work in the early days of book publishing in the USA to overcome censorship bans on publishing certain material. Ulysses is one such master work that the American censors deemed unworthy at the time. Hunter Schafer has also pushed the boundaries of free speech as part of the caste of Euphoria. It could be said that their spontaneous penetration of boundaries, perhaps even the boundaries of decency seem to be the cause of much concern to others.

  • BPHS: 3rd lord in the 6th house: “Inimical to brother, very wealthy, enmity with maternal uncle but love for maternal aunt.”
  • BPHS: 4th lord in the 6th house: “The native will be given to wrath and theft, he will have a questionable character, be self willed and vicious. This is a very inauspicious placement for any ascendant. Disputes over land, quarrels with tenants and people living in his house, and diminished popularity. Vehicle accident is common. These natives are often adopted. For Taurus ascendant debilitated Sun will cause a great lack of happiness, dejection, mother will not be well disposed and one remains sickly. The same will happen in Scorpio ascendant when Saturn is debilitated in 6th: the native will suffer great misery and sad consequence. Exalted Mars in 6th house is said to be the only exception to this suffering.”
  • Commentary: Property crime and property disputes. Living is a ramshackle hut in any neighbouring place: the edge of town, the next town, the next country are all possible. The ground is likely rocky and infertile.  May suffer poverty early in life, reform school or something like that. Possibly had to miss school to care for elder parents or go live with mother’s siblings. Can give a dirty criminal mind, steeped in blame and accusations. Criminal gangs are also possible. Divorces, illness, war, disagreements can drag out forever, unmoving; unchanging. Problems with throat and lungs.

Describes Ketu in Ashwini
The Musician Prince as the cosmic cowboy. Ketu in Ashwini.


Ketu in Ashwini

Cosmic cowboys oblivious to time. They can dust off ancient ideas and give them new life, or they can come up with things that are far ahead of their time. It can be an alienating placement and these natives might feel like they were born in the wrong time or in the  wrong order. Any twining of their energy is not likely to belong with a physical entity; they could be channellers or ghost riders.

Yoichiro Nambu was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2008 for the discovery in 1960 of the mechanism of spontaneous broken symmetry in subatomic physics. Here we find symmetrical physical systems made asymmetrical when put into a vacuous state.  I’m no physicist, but this seems to be a good description of Ketu in Ashwini. Ketu is like a vacuum, a blackhole sucking everything up. It seems to me that Ketu in Ashwini would be like a power vac (which I have myself worked with a little in my previous career). They can be ambivalent about starting things, due to which they can be reckless. They often don’t really know what they’re getting into or signing up for when they first get started. This suggests having their head in the clouds a little bit; but it comes with a fairly extreme sense of freedom that people should be free to make bad decisions (as long as they don’t directly cause harm or infringe on others). In some ways this placement apidemises generation-Xers who are travelling and living through their laptops somehow: digital nomads.

“Situations calling for judgment give impetus to rhetoric’s ability to ‘‘bring before the eyes’’ absent or unapparent persons, places, or things. Rhetoricians often attribute this aspect of rhetoric’s power to fantasia, the capacity through which images of stimuli past, passing, or to come are generated and made present. This article proposes and pursues a conceptualisation of ‘‘rhetorical transport’’ predicated on civic fantasia, a mode of distance collapse whereby rhetors move subjects or objects so as to enable or impede particular judgments. Rhetorical transport abounds in rhetorical practice, but this article focuses on its presence in Gorgias, Cicero, and Thomas Paine.” 

~Michele Kennerly (2010) Getting Carried Away: How Rhetorical Transport Gets Judgment Going ~

Thank you for follow my Nakshatra project.  This is an on-going research project I am conducting for my own enlightenment, as well as that of my student, on the topic of Astrology, in the quest for self knowledge that we are all on together.

Most of this work was completed in Varanasi by blessing of Lord Shiva, the agent of consciousness who is the source of the power of the Wheel of Energies.  The inspiration was freely given to me by Maa Narmada who is the beauty and wonder that we behold. Blessed with the vision in the five directions by Sage Parashara and given knowledge of the underground by Shesha, the Lord of Naga I offer this work for the benefit of humanity.

To support a complete publication of this work.
