Ashwini Nakshatra [The Physician]

Our birth nakshatra and Lagna nakshatra have a profound effect on our life, it indicates our nature, our body structure, and the direction and choice of our life.

As the first star in the cycle of the nakshatrasAshwini carries the energy of beginnings. Those born under Ashwini hold the ability to initiate or pioneer ideas and activities. They must be cautious not to begin something they cannot finish.

Ashwini Kumaras is symbolic of golden armored horse-headed twins. Just like a horse, the natives possess power, strength, dignity, swiftness, and courage, and are also endowed with vitality and initiativeness. These untamed horses are least likely to tell what needs to be done and always focus on self-improvement.

Very few of you would know that they are the physicians of God, the friends of the sick and unfortunate. With Ketu, the south node as the governor of Ashwini Nakshatra, this constellation reflects the dynamism of Ketu.
