swini nakshatra is the first nakshatra in the zodiac and is situated in the beginning of the sign Aries spanning from 0deg to 13deg 20min Aries. Every entity in the universe is temporal and has to pass through the process of creation, sustenance and dissolution. The zodiac from beginning from Aries to Pisces symbolises this process of evolution and final dissolution. The first set of nine nakshatras among 27 governs the process of creation, Ashwini being the first of them is full of creative impulses. This creative force of the nakshatra manifest in strong creative drive in the native of this nakshatra. Mythologically the nakshatra is ruled by the Ashwini Kumaras, the divine physicians named Dashra and Nasatya. Being divine physicians they are adept in healing, medicine, counselling and all other allied disciplines. They are born from the union of Surya (the Sun) and wife Sanjana, while she was in a hermitage doing penance in the form of horse. Hence the name Ashwini which means, born from a female horse. This makes them adept in horse riding, in many kinds of sports and any activities which require a lot of energy. Being taken birth from Sun, the divine time keeper and protector of righteousness, they are by nature righteous, spiritual and philosophical. The names of the Ashwini Kumaras, Dashra and Nastya imply bringing help and truthfulness respectively and hence the natives of this nakshatra are philanthropic and truthful. Due to their propensity to jump into any kinds of activities, they may be called as hyperactive. Many times, it displays their qualities of initiative, however, at many times it results in failures due to jumping into something without prior evaluation of pros and cons of their action. They are ambitious and has a strong drive to create something on their own such a new thought, attitude, ideology or mundane things like business, enterprise etc. Horse are characterised by nervousness, fidget and always prepared to run and so does the Ashwinis. Astronomically they are two stars, Apha Arietes (Hamal) and Beta-Arietes (Sheratan) which forms a horse head on the sky.
