Ashwini (00.00-13.20 Aries) signifies commencement, particularly the energies of Ketu. It is marked by a pair of bright stars in the constellation of Aries. Ashwini is translated into ‘Born of a Female Horse’ or ‘Horse Lady’. As an alternative, Ashwini is also known as Asvayuj or ‘she who yokes horses’. The constellation is symbolized by the head of a horse reflecting commencement (of a journey). While the horse itself is a symbol of power, strength, courage and vitality, its head indicates swift action. Behavioral Characteristics Ashwini denotes spontaneity and hence this nakshatra is marked by vitality as well as initiative. In fact, Ashwini is different from the other nakshatras in its initiating aspect. A native of this nakshatra is fast and agile. The core principle of Ashwini is concerned with rapidity and pace, to achieve which one needs to be concise and direct. People born on this nakshatra, demonstrate a straightforward and no nonsense approach in their transactions. If you are a person whose birth chart shows a prominent Ashwini, you don’t waste time in translating your impulses into thought and thought into deed, which is why your behavior may be regarded as impulsive. This is at times good, although in negative manifestation, it may be rash. Hence, in all their hurry, they may be wasting their time. Full of life, the natives of this nakshatra are intelligent, happy go lucky creatures who are highly intelligent. They look youthful and enthusiastic, and age scarcely shows in their appearance as it shows in those born under other nakshatras. With a rising Ashwini in your ascendant, you are likely to be short, sportive, strong, appealing and innocent. It is true that these natives can be sorted from the crowd by their innocent appearance and childlike disposition. The ruling deities of this nakshatra, the Ashwini Kumaras, are attributed with charisma, style, sophistication and lavishness which are prominent in physical and mental nature of the natives. They also have a strong and adventurous spirit that is blindly attracted to the challenges posed by the unknown. An exploratory spirit is marked with courage and Ashwini has an abundance of it. This daring nakshatra has a chivalric facet to it that derives pleasure from pursuits of heroism. For instance, a 90 year old rock climber could be none other than an Ashwini native. On the flip side, overdone chivalry is apparent in lack of prudence or eagerness to learn from past mistakes and absence of contemplation. These natives are marked with a distinct sense of humor that is jovial and innocent. Ashwini born persons have this need for movement which makes them failures at activities that require patience. They are helpful and sensitive to the needs of others. Their energetic disposition makes them acquire short term, instead of enduring wisdom. Generally, these people love to stay well dressed and hence splurge on clothes and accessories. Ashwini natives are straightforward people who love others with similar characteristics. Unique in their pursuits, these natives feel that they are different from others, which is translated in their pioneering spirit. Resourceful and independent, the natives of Ashwini are competent and enduring. Quarters or Padas

Bharani – The Elephant
Bharani (13.20-26.40 Aries) is denoted by a triad of faint stars, also known as the ‘Bearing Star’ or ‘Star of Restraint’. Bharani is said to behold the energy of Venus and according to Vedic astrologers, Bharani represented the female sexual organ. The indications of the name Bharani primarily relates to the feminine aspect of nature and its potential to receive, bear, foster and annihilate. Often understood as the doorway to another world, Bharani stands for catharsis, forbearance, jealousy and sacrifice. Behavioral Characteristics The functional representation of Bharani can be bets summed up by its nature to tend towards extremities. In fact, this is a constellation that oscillates between polar contradictions like the bohemian and the puritan, wisdom and naiveté, maturity and immaturity, and finally life and death. Bharani stands for desire, which can be summarized as a lust for life and fear of death. It is looked upon as a 16 year old girl on the verge of deflowering, a baby borne in the womb or someone facing the Yamadutas or celestial angels who guide human beings to afterlife. The childlike aspect of this nakshatra makes Bharani one of the most willing constellations. They are marked by the desire to explore their surroundings to the fullest, and often have a primeval innocence in their experience of people and places. Often instinctive than reasonable, Bharani is engulfed by overwhelming emotions and desires that can rarely be contained, making the evolutionary nature of the soul prominent. Those who exhibit the more evolved nature of Bharani steer their energy into fruitful pursuits, whereas the lesser evolved persons hop from one source of light to the other. In today’s world of chaos and confusion, it may be very difficult to restrain a Bharani. It is parallel to the mental and physical contradictions teenagers experience after puberty. If not guided, these natives are likely to plunge into everything that comes their way. Bharani people are accustomed to deal with life’s upheavals and hence they are strong characters. They might be crushed and crumpled at times, crying after a loss, but nothing can contain them for long. Due to their desire for extremes, these people seem to go through radical transformations throughout their life. Once they have embarked on a new path, they explore all its possibilities to the point of exhaustion when they have no choice but to look for something new. The Bharani universe is boundless. The creative impulse of Bharani is represented in childbearing in females and manifestation of creative energy in males. The interplay of the masculine and the feminine makes Bharani a very sexual nakshatra. Driven by the force that draws opposites, Bharani experience, engage in, fall prey to and try to recognize it in every way possible. Sigmund Freud had a prominent Bharani in his native chart and thus he analyzed every activity on the sexual plane. Evolved Bharani natives, however, are more concerned with love, harmony and unity. Natives of Bharani are characterized by expressive eyes, a large head, medium sized lips and a death-like smile, which denotes their sexual urge, inscrutability and the process of life and death. They have a calm disposition despite a tormenting mind. Energetic Bharani natives can encounter success when under wiser guidance.
