Ashlesha - Ascendant Nakshatra Life Pattern

Please refer to the introductory article here – to understand the theme and purpose of this series.

So, now we will try to understand what will happen if Ashlesha Nakshatra becomes someone’s Ascendant Nakshatra and how it is going to impact the life pattern of the person.

So, let’s cover this article under the following points –

Ascendant Nakshatra – There is something called the Ascendant Nakshatra. It is based on the degree of Ascendant (please find introduction of all the Nakshatras here -

If the Ascendant shows the life path then the Ascendant Nakshatra will show the pattern of life. It shows the activities we will follow throughout this life as a pattern.

Ashlesha – Ashlesha Nakshatra is from 16.40 to 30.00 degree of Cancer sign. Ashlesha represents our insecurities and weaknesses as a human being. It is the nakshatra of clinging on to someone or something. It also represents psychological issues. For more information on Ashlesha Nakshatra, please check this link -

Effect of Ashlesha Nakshatra as Ascendant Nakshatra – Ashlesha energy can be used in a couple of ways. Ashlesha can be the nakshatra of insecurities, fear and clinging nature. At the same time, it can be the nakshatra of resolving fear or insecurities through Psychological counselling. In its highest representation, it represents Kundalini Energy. So, these traits or characteristics can become life pattern of an Ashlesha Ascendant Nakshatra native.

Ascendant Nakshatra Lord’s Position – Now, as ascendant shows our life path and ascendant lord’s position in chart shows the direction of life path; likewise, ascendant nakshatra shows our life pattern and position of ascendant nakshatra lord in chart shows that in which area of life, the life pattern will be exhibited.

Like, we have discussed all above traits and characteristics of Ashlesha Nakshatra which (any of them) can become Life Pattern for someone if it is person’s ascendant nakshatra. Now, in whichever House/Sign Ashlesha lord Mercury is placed in a Cancer Ascendant's chart, person may get Ashlesha’s and Mercury’s results as life pattern. Additionally, person’s life pattern involving aforementioned activities can be exhibited from the house/sign wherever Mercury is placed in chart, as per its dignity.

Here, going through Mercury’s position in each house/sign can be repetitive or monotonous. So, for understanding the end result, we can rely on the Concept of Who, How, What & Where -

“Where” is the House where event is happening.

“What” is the Sign which is indicating towards event.

“Who” is the Planet who is bringing the event; and

“How” is the quality of event which depends on nature and dignity of planet.

For example, Mercury in 2nd house/Leo for a Cancer ascendant chart would show that native can be insecure about his family or wealth related matters. He can be fearful of losing them but then if he goes through this experience consciously then he can overpower this fear or insecurity and can help others in resolving similar issues of fear and insecurities. As it is in neutral sign, person can find success here in due time.

Whereas Mercury in 5th house/Scorpio for Cancer ascendant chart, the person can be very insecure about his love interests which can make them a controlling partner in relationships. They can also become very fearful of losing their children, especially the 1st child. As Scorpio itself is sign of Psychology, here person can certainly go towards Psychology or other research-oriented knowledge to overpower his fears and can also help others in similar situations. As Mercury is in great enemy sign here, person can find it difficult to locate this path early in life.

Final example, Mercury in 9th house/Pisces shows that person may like to teach, guide and counsel people. Here, person can be insecure about his belief system and morals or values. He may like to take higher education in these matters and later teach or guide others. But now that Mercury is debilitated, the realization and success both may come with delay in life.

Like this, we can understand about how and where the ascendant nakshatra lord is exhibiting the results of life pattern. In further articles of Ascendant Nakshatra and Life Pattern, I will cover other house/sign positions which would help us in learning interpretation of Ascendant Nakshatra and Life Pattern in a more holistic way.

Dignity – As always, Dignity of the Planet has the highest say. If Mercury is in exaltation (Virgo), Friendly Signs (Taurus & Libra), Own Signs (Gemini) and Neutral Signs (Leo), there is a potential that person can get results without much difficulties or obstacles. When Mercury is in Enemy Signs (Cancer, Sagittarius, Aries & Scorpio), Saturnine Signs (Capricorn & Aquarius) and Debilitated Sign (Pisces) then things can be difficult to achieve and extra hard work is needed to be done.

Conclusion – As I understand, this is how we can understand as to how ascendant nakshatra can setup the life pattern for people with Ashlesha Nakshatra as the Ascendant Nakshatra.
