Rahu’s Journey through Ashwini Nakshatra


We experience the impact of the planet’s placement in various Rashis & Nakshatras on our life. Rahu, the shadowy planet, shows its influence when it moves through the Nakshatras. Let us see the results of Rahu’s placement in Ashwini Nakshatra:

Ashwini Nakshatra

Positioned at the beginning of the zodiac in Aries, Ashwini is ruled by the Ashwini Kumaras, the physicians of the Universe. This Nakshatra is characterized by its swift & dynamic energy, represented by its symbol, the horse-headed twins. Being the first nakshatra, it gives a feeling of proactiveness and being a leader in every work. It represents initiation and cannot reside in stagnancy. Proactiveness can sometimes take the shape of impulsiveness. Universal Healing power of this nakshatra is a great source of beneficence for living beings. It’s a nakshatra of speed and quickness.

Planet Rahu

The planet of illusion, foreign beings, obsession, desire, uniqueness, technology, Rahu is always impactful wherever it is placed. It can create a false sense of reality, where a person may be misled by their own desires, fantasies, or fears. It can also make a person greedy, ambitious, and restless, as they seek to fulfill their unending cravings for material wealth, power, fame or pleasure. Rahu can give a person a rebellious, unconventional and eccentric personality, as they may defy the norms and traditions of society. Rahu can also bestow a person with a sharp intellect, a curious mind and a creative flair, as they may explore the unknown and the unconventional aspects of life.

Results of Rahu’s presence in Ashwini Nakshatra

Rahu’s presence in Ashwini Nakshatra can make the person assertive, one who loves to take initiative and is highly competitive. These people are strong and full of energy. Their actions are sometimes full of impulse and are less thoughtful. The over aggressive and dominant nature of these people can also create issues in relationships. Their high energy makes these people good for sports and related fields. They have an inborn quality of healing. They can pursue careers related to medicine and healing. These people are action oriented and cannot stay idle. They need quick results out of their actions. They should restrict themselves in situations which involve arguments or quarrels and try to stay away from violent incidents & fights. Married life can see some ups and downs when Rahu is positioned in Ashwini Nakshatra. These people should control their aggressiveness & maintain cordial relations with their partner. 


Rahu in Ashwini Nakshatra gives aggressiveness & impulsiveness. A controlled form of these behaviors are good for success but if in excess these can damage the happiness of self & others. So some self restraint is advised to people having this combination. For any kind of astrological guidance, please feel free to get in touch with us.
