Ashwini Nakshatra

Vitality and new beginnings

I am Ashwini.
I am the vitality of the incoming breath and outgoing breath.
I am dynamic, youthful, fast, efficient and filled with energy.
I restore prana, Divine life force, and thus bring healing to the body.
I energise the mind and enlighten it with inspiration and innovative ideas.
I seek to integrate the opposite currents and find a harmony in duality.
I find miraculous solutions even for hopeless cases.
I inspire you to have a fresh look at your current life issues.
Divine twins, Ashwins, born from the union of Sun-god (Surya) and through the nostrils of Samjna (Consciousness) represent prana, cosmic life force, and its creative potential.
Ashwini nakshatra is governed by the Divine twins with heads of horses, sons of Light and Consciousness. Airy, swift and dynamic in nature, its energy resembles a running horse. It makes everything more dynamic, speedy and energised. It helps us to achieve our goals quickly and to find solutions fast. With its power of recovery it has the power to bring instant, miraculous healing to the body and energises us from within. After all, it is the asterism of prana itself. Because not only our life’s experience in this early realm starts with the first breath, but, according to the Vedas, even the creation of the universe starts with the exhale of Lord Vishnu – when the still waters of creations are stirred into motion and we enter the world of duality (symbolic twins). Hence it is the first nakshatra of the zodiac.
Dwelling in the sign of Aries, which is the head of Kalapurusha (Spirit of Time), Ashwini nakshatra can bless us with powerful intellect, memory, ability to learn and strong nervous system. When Moon dwells in Ashwini nakshatra, according to Kala Prakashika, it is the best time to commence any form of education. It represents the power of the mind itself, which is ever in movement. Yet, the shadow side of this asterism is impatience (after all it is mulatrikona of Mars), impulsiveness and uncontrolled instincts. For Ashwini nakshatra natives it becomes essential to meditate and learn how to control their mind, through the power of pranayama (yogic breathing), so their mind and energy does not run impulsively like a wild horse, but is safely attached to the chariot of Consciousess.

Divine and shadow qualities

Ashwini nakshatra and Ashwins

Ashwini Kumar, Divine twins presiding over Ashwini nakshatra, are Divine healers and innovators. They connect us to deeper wisdom and talents hidden within us. They are independent gods, who created their own amrit, or nectar of bliss, when they were denied to receive it from heavens. Yet, due to their youthfulness and energetic nature, they can also sometimes manifest in us as immaturity, impulsiveness and impatience.

Ashwini Nakshatra In-depth

Discover the secrets of Ashwini nakshatra in this more than 3 hours long session with 9 study cases and detailed knowledge of the symbolism and secrets of this lunar mansion. Along with the access to course recording you will also receive +20 pages of pre-read material, 23 charts for study and visual charts.
1. Deep insights into Ashwini Nakshatra
On this course you will learn about such details of Ashwini Nakshatra and its presiding deities, Ashwini Kumars, which you never heard on any other course. I can promise you that. On this course we dive deep not only into the wisdom of the nakshatra itself, but we also have a close look at the anatomy of the nakshatra, with its 4 unique padas and special degrees. You will also learn about various yogas formed exclusively with Ashwini Nakshatra.

2. Spiritual aspect of Ashwini Kumar
Spiritual aspect of the nakshatras was always most fascinating for me. Being on spiritual path for more than 12 years, I was always asking myself a question, what the Moon is trying to teach me, when it passes, day by day, through each nakshatra, awakening its dormant shakti. A spiritual approach to the nakshatras and seeking their deeper wisdom in everyday life is what makes my nakshatra classes unique and quite different from others.
3. Practical approach to understanding the nakshatras
I believe that knowledge can gain its real value only once we learn how to apply it. Each of our classes completes with a detailed analysis of chosen study cases, so you can learn better, how the shakti of the nakshatra can manifest in people’s real lives. After each class you will also receive at least 20 study cases for self-study, so you can start observing some patterns and feel more confident in noticing the influence of the nakshatras.
