In this blog, we will talk about Ashwini Nakshatra and the astrological significance that Ashwini Nakshatras can bring.


About Ashwini Nakshatra

Ashwini Nakshatra is the first Nakshatra in the Lunar calendar or Lunar Mansion. As discussed previously, each time the Moon takes a new position due to the rotation and revolution, there is a constellation it lights. Thus, these constellations become the Lunar mansion for that time frame.


An ancient Indian sage, Varahmihira, who was a very respected name in astronomy and astrology discovered the Ashwini Nakshatra, and using his logic and deductions, he landed upon the constellation that exactly summed up the happening on Earth with astrological changes.


Varahamihira named this constellation as Asvini in Sanskrit meaning something satisfactory. Later, with language advancements, the name changed to Ashwini without changing its meaning.


Post this, Maharishi, or the great sage Panini, the God of Indian Vedas, discovered that Ashwini Nakshatra seems to resemble the head of a horse. He also witnessed that the person born in Ashwini Nakshatra majorly was like a horse, requiring a lot of maintenance but is very hardworking and not a luxury to have for everyone.
