He has an attractive personality, is handsome and lovely, clever, skilful and intelligent. Attributes : By the influence of this star the native is expected to be equestrian (horse-ride) or a soldier, also a physician with marvellous power to heal. The after-speak of physicians excellence or process. It is possible, in the horoscopes of these physicians it will be seen that the Graha for successful medical practice is positioned in Ashwini Nakshatra.From Aswi is supposed to be derived carriages for animals for transport, everything related to transport and transport department. The Puranas relate that the two Aswini Kumaras were born of mother Sanga and father Ravi. The mother held the solar semen in her nostrils, for otherwise she could not hold it, it is so strong. They are the twins of Sanga and therefore this Nakshatra is supposed to produce twins, Mangal in this Nakshatra – specially if the Lagna is in Kumbha and Mangal in bhatristhan indicates twin brother and sister for the native. Or if Ravi, Guru or Pitri Karaka or lord of the Bhava signifying father or son in a similar way is in this Nakshatra then the father or any of the uncles or any of the children may be one of the twin.
The Nakshatras – Bharani
Bharani Nakshatra Dasha ruler : Shukra (Venus)Symbol : a vulvaDeity : Yama (the god of death)Brihat Samhita Rulership : Those that feed on blood and flesh, cruel men, those that are engaged in killing, imprisonment and beating others, low-born persons, and those who are devoid of courage (character or nobility).Moon in Bharani : The person is firm in his resolutions, truthful, healthy, dexterous, free from grief and happy. Attributes : It is possible to have an idea of the nature of Bharani Nakshatra from the nature of Rahu, Mangal and Yama. To take Rahu first,1. Rahu gives extravagant enjoyment of material pleasure and is later on the cause of sorrow,2. Mangal gives courage, strength, exaltation and hope, 3. Yama gives purity, cleanliness, justice and integrity. The sense of restraint is also Yamas gift; he is the lord of Dharma, a stern disciplinarian, a ruthless expositor of truth, and a refuge for kings and law-abiding subjects. We should not always confine his interpretation to his being only the lord of death; he is the great judicature, the ultimate dispenser of reward and punishment. The story of Yama-Nachiketa is a particular exposition of the hospitality of Yama, his sense of dharma and knowledge of it, his superb honesty and great integrity and other divine virtues. The Nakshatra of which he is the devata (God) is also in consequence the giver of whatever is good, pure, truthful and honest. The etymological meaning of Bharani is what deserves to be cultivated and preserved that is dependence, servitors, retainers or anything by which living is earned, for example salary.
The Nakshatras – Krittika
Krittika Nakshatra Dasha ruler : Surya (Sun)Symbol : sharp, razor like instrumentDeity : Agni (Fire god)Rulership : White flowers, Brahmans who maintain and worship the sacred fire daily, those who know the sacred hymns and sacrificial rules, grammarians, miners, barbers, Brahmans, potters, priests and astrologers.Moon in Krittika : The person has a great appetite, is drawn to improper sexual relations, is very energetic and will be famous. Attributes : This is the birth star of Chandra. Many constellations gather at the tail end of Krithika group. It extends from Mesa 26'40". The residuary 10'00" degree fall in Vrishabha. Lord (Adhipati) is Mangal and Shukra. Agni is the great purifier, the great consumer of and the giver of light, heat and brightness. Agni causes the fire of life and the drive. It is also the spark of life. Without fire creation would not exist. Agni is at the base of creation and of the continuation of existence. It consumes everything. The fire of digestion in the human system and the external fire for cooking are only different manifestations of the same principle which is Agni. Agni is the symbol of brightness and brilliance, all weapons with fire-power. And other things of the same category come within the range of Krittika group. The fire is considered as purifier; for it burns away all that is wicked, dark and dull, also all that is low and sinful and inauspicious in the world. The dross thus blazed away, only effulgence and light remain. Fire gives the earth its activity and dynamismand revives it after the spells of cold that periodically inflict comatose condition of the earth. It is easy enough to deduce from fire the causal effect of the Krittika group. Mangal is the lord of that part of Krittika which is in Mesha Rashi and Mangal is like a mass of lightning in shining splendour. So, the Krittika in Mesa is devastatingly brilliant, the effulgence being closely associated with also an incendiary character. The Krittika of Vrishabha Rashi is brilliant but unlike the Krittika of Mesha, not incendiary. The lord of Vrishabha Rashi is brilliant but unlike the Krittika of Mesha, not incendiary. The Lord of Vrishabha Rashi is Shukra and Shukra stands for worship of beauty and for poetry and imagination. He is radiantly white like snow, the Kunda flower and the Utpal. He is also the encyclopaedic expounder of all branches of learning. It follows that the Krittika of Vrishabha is brilliant but the brilliance does not burn, it is soft and sweet, and benign.The Krittika of Mesha Rashi is doubtless brilliant, it has plenty of heat which burns. The Krittika of Vrishabha has on the contrary a softened radiance, a wave of brightness that does not hurt.
The Nakshatras – Rohini
Rohini Nakshatra Dasha ruler : Chandra (Moon)Symbol : a cartDeity : Brahma (the Creator)Rulership : Observers of vows, merchandises, kings, wealthy persons, Yogis, cartmen, cows, bulls, aquatic animals, husbandmen, mountains and men in authority.Moon in Rohini : One is truthful and pure, holding no secrets, speaks sweetly and compellingly, of steady mind and heart, and handsome. Attributes : The word is derived from Rohan which means to rise or to bring into existence. It extends in the Vrishabha Rashi from 10'00" degrees to 23'20". Rohini- group therefore encompasses everything that comes within the range of creation – beasts, birds, animals etc. It would also connote the process of growing, begetting, birth, production etc, in brief production, birth and creation. Rising means process of ascending, that is to say the creative evolution, the cultivation and the improvement. Mythology describes Rohini the wife of Chandra. Of all the 27 Stars-all wives of Chandra-Rohini is said to have been fond of fine dress, cosmetics and decor and was the most beloved of Chandra. The Rohini (group) is, in the line with this, considered to be the cause of a taste for fine dress, perfume, and other articles of toilet. Creation continues to exist mainly on the basis of food; and Rohini is supposed to be the cause of food. The direct and immediate cause of food is Agni and Brahma the remote cause. From this point of view the God who gives food, that is Agni, is the spiritual principle of Rohini (group) Nakshatra and because, Brahma the remote cause of food is also the Devata of Rohini; the range of influences of this group runs over the whole gamut of the visible and invisible animal world.
