Sun’s Ingress (Oct 23 - Nov 5) for Swati Nakshatra
The Sun enters Swati on Oct 23 and remains there till Nov 5. If you are born during this period, your Sun is in Swati Nakshatra. During this period, Deepavali is celebrated. Like Navaratri, Deepavali is celebrated for 5 days.
In many regions, Deepavali starts on Dhanathrayodhashi. This seems to be appropriate because Dhanathrayodhashi comes on Hasta Nakshatra and the next 5days come under Hasta Panchak. Therefore, this period is an Hasta Panchak of Moon between an Hasta Panchak of the Sun.
As you remember, Hasta Panchak of the Moon in Hasta Nakshatra of the Sun (Hastha Panchak of the Sun) was celebrated during Navaratri and Hasta Panchak of Moon during Swati Nakshatra is celebrated during Deepavali.

Astronomical Information of Swati Nakshatra
Almost all astronomers agree that Yogathara of Swati is Arcturus alpha Bootis. Interestingly this star does not come in the range of Swati! This is because no star in Swati has an ecliptic latitude closer to 6.5. Even latitudes of Arcturus are +30.6. Arcturus or Alpha Bootis is the 4th brightest star in the night sky.
Arcturus is a red giant. It is 110 times brighter than the Sun. It can be observed in the day- time with a telescope. It is a yellow-orange star considered a very cool star.
Arcturus is moving at a rate of 122 km/s. It is cutting perpendicularly through the galactic disk. It moves with a group of 52 other such stars, known as the Arcturus stream. Considering this property of Arcturus, the deity of Swati, i.e. Vayu, seems appropriate.
