Apologies for the long break. Hope you all had a great time at Holi.
The first one of Jupiter through Nakshatras, i.e. Jupiter in Ashwini Nakshatra.
Let’s look at important things here –
Jupiter - It is the most benefic planet and it represents all the auspicious things like Knowledge, Wisdom, Law, Guru, Spirituality, Religion, Philosophy, Literature, Elderly People and Children etc. For a girl, Jupiter also represents Husband.
Ashwini – Ashwini is 1st nakshatra, so it comes with the nature of pro-activeness and be first everytime. It is also nakshatra of Healers or Doctors as its deity is Ashwini Kumars, the metaphysical healers. It is also nakshatra of illusion, cheating and confusion. For more info on Ashwini, please check this - https://www.astrosaxena.com/ashnaksh.
Aries – As Ashwini is part of Aries, Aries sign and its representations become important here. Aries is the 1st sign of zodiac belt, so it represents the things and energy of 1st house of horoscope like Self, Personality etc. Besides that, Aries is the sign of our individuality, our aggression, our actions, our competitive ability etc. Aries is ruled by Mars and it is consisted of 2 and half Nakshatras named Ashwini, Bharani and Krittika.
Mars – As Mars rules Aries, Mars’ position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Aries.
Ketu – Likewise as Ketu rules Ashwini, Ketu’s position and dignity is important to know about the overall functioning of any planet in Ashwini
Houses Involved – Also, we can’t afford to forget the houses involved as a planet can be ruling different houses and sitting in different house for every person as per ascendant and planet’s position. To know overall affect, we have to consider the houses involved as those areas of life are being impacted.
Interpretation of Jupiter in Ashwini Nakshatra – When Jupiter is in Ashwini Nakshatra, it is in sign of friend and nakshatra of Ketu. Common theme around Jupiter and Ketu is Spirituality. In a way, we can say that Jupiter is in good dignity here. As Jupiter represents knowledge and Ashwini represents metaphysics, this person can be all about gaining and sharing knowledge of metaphysical things. They can be very curious and research oriented. They can be counselors or business people in metaphysical or healing related things. They can have great energy and drive as Jupiter will expand horse-power of Ashwini. They can also be teachers in metaphysical things. They can have lots of knowledge about animals, especially horses. They can be working as Veterinary Doctors or teachers in Veterinary Colleges. They can have some spiritual or mystical effect with the way they speak and they can be considered as Gurus by people.
At the same time, in relationship matters, Jupiter in Ketu's nakshatra can give them a natural sense of dissatisfaction, frustration and isolation. They need to realize that this frustration is their internal issue and they can't project it on other people as that would only make things worse
Overall, a good position for gaining knowledge through research in metaphysics & healing activity but can be troublesome position in relationship matters.
Role of Mars – Mars's placement is important to guide Jupiter in right direction, being Aries's lord..
Role of Ketu - Likewise, Ketu's placement is important to guide Jupiter in right direction, being Ashwini's lord.
Other Factors – And of course, we need to consider conjunction, aspects, house lordship, house position and dashas etc to know the exact results of Jupiter in Ashwini.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Jupiter in Ashwini can work in a chart.
Hope this helps. Please post any comment or query you may have.
