In Hindu astrology, there are 27 nakshatras ('lunar mansions', Sanskrit: नक्षत्र, IAST: Nakṣatra), or sectors along the ecliptic. A list of them is first found in the Vedanga Jyotisha, a text dated to the final centuries BCE. The Nakṣatra system predates the influence of Hellenistic astronomy on Vedic tradition, which became prevalent from about the 2nd century CE. There are various systems of enumerating the Nakṣatra-s;[clarification needed] although there are 27-28 days to a sidereal month, by custom only 27 days are used. The following list gives the corresponding regions of sky.

Every nakshatra has its own set of fixed attributes. This includes planetary ruler, nakshatra group, zodiac sign, deity, symbol, and power. The features of Ashwini are below:
Other Names For Padas Of Vedic Astrology Libra
Sanskrit Name: अश्विनी (Ashvini) comes from the Sanskrit word अश्व (horse). One meaning of Ashwini is a “female horse,” indicating energy, swiftness, and a maternal, caring instinct.
Planetary Ruler: Ketu. Known in the Puranas as the headless body of the shadow planet Rahu, Ketu is associated with intensity, loss, and transcendence.
Nakshatra Group: Godly. Nakshatras are divided into three classes — monsters, humans, and gods. Ashwini is a godly nakshatra. People in this group are generally good-natured and fortunate in life. However, they may struggle with pride and a sense of entitlement.
Zodiac Sign: Aries. Ashwini natives are friendly, quick-witted, and pioneering. They exhibit the full spectrum of Arian qualities.
Deity: The Ashwini-kumaras. Known as the physicians of the gods, these two brothers are healers and miracle-workers.
Symbol: A horse’s head. This represents new beginnings, vitality, movement, and alertness.
Power: To take away. As natural healers, those born under this star are able to relieve others of pain and suffering.
Resonant Syllables: In India, the birth nakshatra is traditionally used as one means of choosing the name of a child. The corresponding syllables for the four quarters (padas) of Ashwini are Chu (चु), Che (चे), Cho (चो), and La (ला). The syllable of a person’s first name is sometimes used when calculating an astrological chart if the time of birth is unknown.
Ashwinis possess a youthful, playful energy. They take life head-on. They remain confident and courageous even in the face of overwhelming problems. They think and act quickly and don’t like wasting time.
Persons born under this star have an innocent and natural approach to life. You are trusting, non-judgmental, and straightforward in your interactions with others. You don’t like getting swept up in gossip or social drama. You genuinely care about others, and you try to help those around you to the best of your ability.

Titans Atlas and Prometheus, Laconian black-figure amphora C6th B.C., Vatican City Museums THE TITANES (Titans) were six elder gods named Kronos (Cronus), Koios (Coeus), Krios (Crius), Iapetos (Iapetus), Hyperion and Okeanos (Oceanus), sons of Ouranos (Uranus, Sky) and Gaia (Gaea, Earth), who ruled the cosmos before the Olympians came to power.
You can work hard when you put your mind to something, but you’re not one to toil away without seeing tangible results. You are highly intelligent, and you desire that all your endeavors align with your life’s purpose.
Ashwini’s can do well in careers that are dynamic, exciting, and people-oriented. However, they have a tendency to overextend themselves and take on too many projects.
Some ideal professions include:
- Physician, alternative health practitioner, nurse, or counselor
- Military service member, police officer, or firefighter
- Entrepreneur, C-level executive, or manager
- Athlete, martial artist, yoga instructor, or dancer
As bold and enterprising individuals, Ashwinis can often get carried away. They may act on impulse without fully considering the consequences of their choices. In this sense, they can be somewhat short-sighted.
Your tendency to take on numerous tasks can lead to feelings of anxiety or overwhelm as you struggle to follow through on your various commitments. As you accumulate more and more deadlines, you may abandon other projects, leaving them unfinished. This can cause you to feel dissatisfied, as though you never have enough time for what you want to do in life. It’s important to prioritize and to be honest about your capacity. This will let you focus on the things that are truly important to you.
Another shortcoming of Ashwini is the risk of becoming arrogant due to your superior abilities. You are a talented person, but don’t let this make you indifferent to others. You have a hard time being a team-player and letting others take the lead. By taking advice and input from those around you, you will make fewer mistakes, learn more quickly, and achieve much greater success in the long run than if you to attempt to always do things on your own.

You are family-oriented. The sign of Aries is known as the sign of the ram. This means you like to stick with and look after your flock. It’s healthy and natural to have affection for family, but try not to let yourself be overly attached or controlling.
You have a good sense of fashion. You like being organized — everything should have a place. This intuitive sense for orderliness extends itself into your dress.

You’re spiritually inclined. As a deva-gana, or godly nakshatra, Ashwinis are naturally drawn toward the spiritual. You don’t subscribe to the “eat, drink, and be merry” philosophy of life. You actively seek something more substantial.
You like to follow tradition. Another trait of the deva-gana nakshatras is their obedience to elders, including parents, grandparents, teachers, and other authorities. Although this quality is quite uncommon in the modern age, it’s a valuable trait to have. Receiving the blessings of those who have gone before us can empower us to do great things in life.
You get into trouble. You like adventures, but your penchant for risk-taking can sometimes land you in difficult situations. Try to balance your headstrong and fearless nature by taking guidance from those with more experience than you, and don’t forget to use your common sense.

Ashwinis’ sexuality is symbolized by a male horse. In terms of physical compatibility, this makes them an ideal match for persons born under Shatabhisha nakshatra.
Based on holistic matching, Ashvinis are most likely to find happiness in long-term partnerships with:
- Mrigashira (for male natives)
- Uttara-phalgunis in Leo (for female natives)
- Swati (for female natives)
- Anuradha (for female natives)
- Uttara-ashadhas in Sagittarius
Note: Compatibility in relationships is a complex science that looks at many different factors. You should always consult with an experienced astrologer who can carefully analyze the charts of both you and your partner.
Each nakshatra is divided into four quarters, also known as padas, of 3:20 degrees each. These quarters are based on a 1/9th divisional chart, known in Sanskrit as navamsha.
The moon’s position at your time of birth determines the quarter in which you are born.
First Quarter (0-3:20 degrees Aries): Aries. You are attractive and physically active, but you have a dark side. You keep your vices secret. You can be cruel when provoked.
Second Quarter (3:20-6:40 degrees Aries): Taurus. You live well and have plenty of income. You know how to keep your composure. However, you are often consumed by materialistic concerns.
Third Quarter (6:40-10:00 degrees Aries): Gemini. You have a sharp intellect and a logical mind. You are a skilled speaker, and you usually win arguments.
Fourth Quarter (10:00-13:20 degrees Aries): Cancer. You are religious, spiritually-focused, and philanthropic. You are naturally empathic, and you may be gifted with the ability to heal others.
In electional astrology, also known as muhurtha, nakshatras are used to determine favorable days and times for important ceremonies and events, such as weddings, buying a new house or vehicle, commencing a project, or conceiving a child.
The electional nature of Ashwini isKshipra or Laghu, “swift” and “light.” Ashwini is an excellent nakshatra for:
