Ashwini Nakshatra in Astrology: Features, Padas, and Remedies

According to astrology, Ashwini Nakshatra natives are attractive and enjoy jewellery. They are privileged, smart, and proactive. The inhabitants of Ashwini Nakshatra, according to Nakshatra Sooktha, have good hearing. Ashwini Nakshatra is associated with horses, horse riders, horse sellers, commandants, doctors, attendants, businesspeople, and attractive individuals. One of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras in Vedic Astrology is the Ashwini Nakshatra (or the Nakshatras with their mouths curved). “Ashwa” is Arabic for horse. The word “Ashwini” means “one like a horse” in Sanskrit. This Nakshatra is favourable for starting and finishing projects involving roads, dams, the expansion of metals, chariots, boats, etc.

Symbol: A horse’s head

The face of a horse serves as Ashwini’s emblem. The horse represents a baby’s rate of growth.

The Ashwini Kumars are a deity

Features of the Vedic Astrology Ashwini Nakshatra

  • A native with an Ashwini dominance likes to do tasks quickly.
  • They are quite good at avoiding danger, whether it be psychological or physical.
  • Natives of Ashwini will enter puberty or begin their menstrual cycle relatively early in life and develop sexual awareness at a very young age.
  • Ashwini Nakshatra natives can find a place to snooze anywhere, whether it’s on a bumpy bus, rail, or aeroplane travel, or in the convenience of their own bed. People don’t sleep for pleasure; they sleep to gain vitality.
  • Their major goal is to get as much sleep as they can so they can start the race of life as soon as possible.
  • Because a horse doesn’t have a collarbone, Ashwini natives can have weak collarbones.
  • It goes without saying that an Ashwini-dominated native has strong muscle tendons and the capacity to work much longer and quicker than others because these are a horse’s most distinguishing characteristics.
  • Horsepower, a term used to describe the strength of an engine in an automobile, is one that immediately springs to mind.
  • A horse is a very strong animal that has the ability to kill a man with just one kick from his hind legs.
  • The front two legs of a horse can be thought of as arms, whereas the hind legs are similar to a human’s actual legs.
  • A native of Ashwini will have powerful legs and thighs to aid him in running.
  • In Ashwini, horses with powerful muscles and quick legs are portrayed. Building muscles and having the stamina to lift heavy weights are key components in bodybuilding.
  • A liking of fast moving objects like race cars, rockets, fighter planes, and bullet trains can also be attributed to the horsepower.
  • An Ashwini local might adore this kind of transportation and occasionally engage in it as a pleasure.
  • A horse’s face, particularly its long snout, large eyes, and long neck, is another distinguishing trait.
  • The next time, pay close attention to someone whose horoscope has a strong Ashwini Nakshatra effect, such as a group of planets in Ashwini Nakshatra.
  • In an astrological sense, the second house is where we see someone’s face, but that only tells half the story.
  • The ascendant and the second house for the body and face in a birth chart are always dominated by a group of planets.
  • Because he may have numerous planets in Cancer in Pushya Nakshatra, a Virgo guy may be overweight.
  • See how the horse’s hair moves with the breeze and is naturally styled in the wild without the aid of a salon.
  • Both Ashwini men and women enjoy having long hair and styling it.
  • They always make every effort to have hair that is silky smooth.
  • There is a word for horses called “wild horses” because of their reputation for having a wild spirit.
  • A horse doesn’t care about having a master or slave; they just want to go wherever they want, whenever they want.
  • Native Ashwinis are incredibly autonomous, liberated, and wild.
  • They desire excitement; they desire to climb a mountain, then have lunch, and then play basketball.
  • They detest deadlines, orders, and schedules.
  • All they want is to be themselves.
  • Natives of Ashwini always act in accordance with their personal preferences, including how they dress and apply makeup.
  • A horse’s ability to go great distances and explore new terrain is demonstrated by the fact that they may run hundreds of miles between meals.
  • A native of Ashwini desires to visit distant locations and interact with strangers.
  • They might even get married to someone from a different culture or country.
  • Another fascinating fact is that natives of Ashwini prefer to properly style their hair and enjoy working with it; this is because a horse has extremely fashionable hair that rises with the wind and falls upon their forehead.
  • The native is predicted to be an equestrian (horse-rider), a soldier, or a doctor with exceptional abilities under the influence of this star.
  • It’s possible to see the Graha for successful medical profession in Ashwini Nakshatra in the horoscopes of these doctors.
  • Everything pertaining to transportation and the department of transportation should be deduced from Ashwini, including animal carriages. According to the Puranas, mother Sanga and father Ravi were the parents of the two Ashwini Kumaras. The mother held the solar semen in her nostrils because it was too strong for her to handle it any other way.
  • They are Sanga’s twins. As a result, twins are predicted to be born under this nakshatra. Particularly if the Lagna is in Aquarius (Kumbha) and Mars (Mangal) is in the bhatristhan sign, this Nakshatra denotes twin siblings for the local. Or, let’s say that this Nakshatra is ruled by Ravi, Guru, Pitri Karaka, or the Lord of the Bhava, which represents a father or a son. If so, one of the twins may be the father, one of the uncles, or any of the kids.
  • In a Vedic astrology treatise, Ashwini Nakshatra is described.
  • Hora Sara predicts that the local will have self-respect, eat sparingly, be knowledgeable, steady, skilled, and obedient to his obligations. He will be of middling status and command a high level of respect.
  • Jataka Parijata predicts that the native born beneath the star (Ashwini) will be content and have a lot of intelligence, money, modesty, sagacity, and fame.
  • Sage Narada predicts that people born under the Ashwini Nakshatra will be brave, charming, lucky, skilled, and bright. They will also love jewellery and ladies.
  • According to Brihat Samhita, a person born under the asterism Ashwini will enjoy wearing jewellery, have a charming appearance, be liked by everyone, be effective, and be educated.

Sun’s Ingress for Ashwini Nakshatra (April 14–April 27)

  • On April 14, the Sun enters Ashwini Nakshathra, where it stays through April 27. Your Sun is in Ashwini Nakshatra if you were born during this time.
  • The Sun was in Ashwini Nakshatra when Lord Shree Rama, Lord Vishnu’s seventh avatar, was born. The moon was in the constellation Pushya. The Ketu owns the Ashwini Nakshatra, and the Ketu denotes wisdom. The Sun is exalted and the Moon is in its own sign in Shree Rama’s horoscope. At midday, Lord Shree Rama was born. He was therefore born under the Cancer (Karka) Lagna. Bruhaspathi is the deity of the Pushya Nakshatra. This suggests expertise.
  • Lord Rama had to endure his spouse’s separation for some time in the Bruhaspathi vedic tale. Lord Hanumana was also born at this time. Everyone is aware of the intimate relationship between Lord Rama and Lord Hanuman. The Moon was in Swati Nakshatra when Lord Hanuman appeared. Vayu Dhevatha is the god of Swathi Nakshathra. Lord Hanuman is therefore referred to as Vayuputhra, or the son of Vayu.
  • Lord Hanuman was born in the ascendant of Aries at sunrise. Ashwini Nakshathra would contain the Lagna. It should be emphasised that Lord Hanuman possessed the power of both Vayu, or the wind, and Ashwa, or horses.

‘Ashwini Tree’: Ashwagandha

  • The tree for Ashwini is Withania somnifera, also known as ashwagandha.
  • Another name for it is winter cherry. Ashwagandha is a name for the herb that smells like a horse.
  • This tree’s moist roots have a horse feces-like odour.
  • The tree is around three feet tall.
  • The fruit is red, and it has numerous branches. The roots are primarily employed in pharmaceuticals.

The uses of Ashwagandha

  • Treatments for anxiety, depression, and exhaustion include ashwagandha.
  • It boosts blood flow, is a nerve tonic, and works well for numbness.
  • It improves kids’ immunity.
  • It works well for sexual issues.
  • It aids in easing muscle pain.
  • Both testosterone levels and female libido are improved.

Details on Ashwini Nakshatra’s astronomy

  • Astronomers disagree as to whether Alpha Arietis or Beta Arietis is the Yogathara of Ashwini. Just because Alpha Arietis is outside of Ashwini’s range, Beta Arietis is taken into consideration.
  • This is a pair of stars that orbit each other in a spectroscopic binary star system. An ordinary telescope cannot resolve a pair. Every 107 days, a star with the mass of the Sun orbits a star with a mass twice that of the Sun. A heavier star in this stellar system is responsible for 95% of the brightness.
  • The smaller star approaches a larger star as they revolve around one another. Only 20% of the Sun and Mercury’s distance separates them.
  • It’s interesting that Ashwini Kumars is the deity of Ashwini Nakshathra. As if our seers had intimate knowledge of this binary star system, they are referred to as twin brothers. It is in the ram’s right horn and is pearly white. It is regarded as being warmer than usual.

Ashwini Nakshatra remedies

  • Since that Sun has a golden colour and that Ashwin Kumars are Sun’s offspring, it makes perfect sense.
  • Natives of Ashwini believe that presenting water to the rising sun is the best cure, along with wearing 22k gold, which truly has a golden colour.
  • Depending on the degree, either Chitra Nakshatra or Swati Nakshatra is the opposite Nakshatra of Ashwini. This is because Swati is all about rapid moving wind, which is very closely tied to the quality of quick and moving theme of Ashwini, and Sanjana, who is the mother of Ashwins, is the daughter of the celestial architect, Vishwakarma.
