The Nakshatra Series – Ashlesha Nakshatra


Next in the Nakshatra Series is Ashlesha Nakshatra, the embrace. It stands ninth in the list of Nakshatras in Vedic astrology. It falls between 16°40′ to 30°00′ in Cancer. It is best associated with the elements of Mercury as its ruling planet and Naga (God of snakes) as its deity. Its formation involves a combination of five stars, giving it the symbol of a ‘serpent’. It is known as the clinging star while symbolizing mystery and spirituality. Read on to find the chief characteristics and traits of natives born under Ashlesha Nakshatra.

What is Ashlesha Nakshatra?

The innate nature of this Nakshatra is to embrace and cling to someone or something. This makes them protective and possessive of things and people they love. Said that there is a profound sense of mysticism in them that signals a detached personality. They protect and fight for what they care for. Independence and self-reliance come easily to them due to their spiritually enlightened mind. They believe in the power of remaining grounded and strategic in any venture they undertake. And it works splendidly well when it comes to countering enemies. They lay low and attack with all their might and force when the time seems right. They are truly a perfect fusion of Mercury’s sage-like enlightenment and the Naga’s knight-like courage.

Ashlesha Nakshatra Male

An insightful and secretive man, often deemed selfish is a perfect description of an Ashlesha man. He is a good observer and could read anyone like a book. Another thing that comes easily to him is manipulation, and therefore he has an upper hand in negotiations and pitches. He might look like he is compassionate but mostly has his own interests at heart. This might not put them in a positive light, but still, it makes them respected people in society. Despite the mere flaws, he remains unbiased and does not believe in discrimination. He is guarded and does not trust anyone easily.  That said, he protects and cares for his dear ones unconditionally.


Ashlesha male natives are great orators and negotiators. It comes naturally to them and therefore, a career in politics might work well. They make good leaders due to their diplomatic nature. Their interests might propel them to choose creative subjects. Eventually, once in their life, they will choose a stream that will best suit their unique interests. It could be writing or acting, or anything related to creative arts. They are fearless, instinctual and confident to choose their path. So whichever venture they choose to embark on, whether it is a government duty or business; they will do well. Still, they do exceptionally well in fields related to petroleum, poison, tourism, journalism, textiles, stationary, and tobacco.

Health & Compatibility

Problems related to joints and the digestive system could trouble him from time to time. He could also suffer from jaundice, flatulence, and drug addiction. He could also complain of mental distress every now and then. This only indicates that he needs to indulge in an active lifestyle.

Ashlesha males are known for their courteous demeanour. Apart from that, they are protective towards their loved ones. So there is no doubt that will be a caring and responsible partner. However, he should have the patience to understand the people they love. This is one of the ways he can successfully handle a marital alliance.

Ashlesha Nakshatra Female

Ashlesha females are born with potential but are easily distracted. They may lack self-control and therefore, big milestones in their life get delayed. It is only when she decides to not let the distractions take over, she starts accomplishing her goals. They achieve the big things in life, as long as they steer clear of self-attracted toxicity. Her public image reeks of arrogance because of her shy yet slightly argumentative nature.


Ashlesha females are meticulous and organized. They will be highly productive in the administrative field. Given their intellect, they can very well try for Grade A government positions. If academics is not their cup of tea, then a flourishing business could be their fate. Either way, they will earn well throughout the peak of their lifetime- enough to retire early and enjoy the golden years. There are no setbacks in her professional life as long as she remains focused.

Health & Compatibility

Unlike the male natives, Ashlesha females lead an active lifestyle. But quite similar to the males, chances of substance abuse and addiction are high. Health issues like hysteria, dropsy, indigestion, and jaundice could affect them. Mental health problems could also be a major issue.

There are some challenges foreseen in the first half of 2023. If you are a businessman, there are some hiccups and losses. These troubles are temporary and should not distract your focus.

Just like your career, finances could be slow in the first half of this year. Some financial strain is foreseen around that time. It would be best to not make huge investments. Improvements can be seen after the first quarter and only during and after the third quarter, problems will settle.

Health & Relationship

A good year for health, a splendid time for those who wish to work on their health. Natives may have to gear up and focus on being disciplined. Try not to procrastinate and let lethargy take over. Relationships will remain neutral. There is nothing to worry about.
