The Moon was in Pushya Nakshatra. In Shree Rama's horoscope, the Sun is exalted, and the Moon is in its own sign. Lord Shree Rama was born at noon. This means he was born on Karka Lagna. The deity of Pushya Nakshatra is Bruhaspathi. This indicates knowledge.

Astronomical Information of Ashwini Nakshatra

  • Some astronomers think Alpha Arietis is the Yogathara of Ashwini and others think it is Beta Arietis. We will go with Beta Arietis simply because Alpha Arietis is outside the range of Ashwini.
  • This is a spectroscopic binary star system—a star orbit pair around each other. A pair cannot be resolved using an ordinary telescope. A star with a mass of a Sun orbits a star double the Sun's mass every 107 days. In this star system, 95% of the luminosity is produced by a heavier star.
  • While they rotate around each other, the smaller star comes closer to a larger star. The distance is as less as just 20% of the sun and mercury distance.
  • Interesting enough, the deity of Ashwini Nakshathra is Ashwini Kumara. They are called twin brothers as if our seers very well knew about this binary star system! It is pearly white and in the right horn of the ram. It is considered hotter than average.

Remedies of Ashwini Nakshatra

  • Since Sun has a golden hue and Ashwin Kumars are the sons of Sun it’s quite understandable with this connection.

  • The opposite nakshatra to Ashwini depending upon the degree is either Chitra or Swati. Why so? Sanjana who is the mother of Ashwins is the daughter of the celestial architect, Vishwakarma, while Swati is all about fast moving wind, very much related to the quality of fast and moving theme of Ashwini.
  • The best remedy for Ashwini individual is to play board games, taking pictures, traveling and reading a book.
