Ashwini Nakshatra: Devata for Ashwini Nakshatra is Ashwi or the Duality
known as Aswini Kumar Twins, the physician of the Gods. Symbol - the head of a horse. So, 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 Aswini 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.

comports. They are endowed with good family and children and are wealthy. They are daring,

handsome and monied. They are capable administrators, cruel, of big body and respected. They

Bharani Nakshatra: Devata Yama;
birth star of Rahu. It extends from 13:20 to 26:40. Symbol: Orifice of the womb (oss-mouth),

lord Mangal. 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 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 particularly 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.

Those born in the Bharani star incur the displeasure of others; they are enjoyers, obedient and

learned; they fear water and get the wealth of bad people. They know the scriptures, rationale,

intelligent and win the quarrels. They bear scars on their body due to injuries. They are good

longlived. They are also determined, and proud, they do not tolerate others' prosperity.

Those born in the first quarter are kingly, with good qualifies, daring, winners of wars, mixed

Krittika Nakshatra:
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: degree fall in Vrishabha. The Devata is Agni, Lord

(Adhipati) is Mangal and Sukar. 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 manifestation 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 dynamic and 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 Krithika which is in Mesa 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 Krithika of Mesa, not incendiary. The lord of Vrishabha Rashi is

brilliant but unlike the Krittika of Mesa, not incendiary. The Lord of Vrishabha Rashi is Sukra

and Sukra 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 encyclopedic 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 Mesa 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.

Those born in the star Krittika are bereft of friends and family; endowed with son and they enjoy

life and are very prosperous. They suffer from hunger and they are without strength and money;

they undertake purposeless traveling but recollect the help rendered by others. They are very

harsh, and do jobs forbidden. They are cruel and do good jobs and they also have defective face.

They are bright, instant angry and run after other women. They are heavy eaters and fiery. They

are stingy, intelligent, famous, successful, loved by partner, with property earned by themselves,

white haired, afraid of wind and carry the symbols of til and fish.

Those born in the first quarters are capable doers of jobs,are served by many, monied and

enjoyers and carry out big jobs. They respect theirs parents and are leaders of army. They serve

the king.
