The first one of Rahu through Nakshatras, i.e. Rahu in Ashwini Nakshatra.
Let’s look at important things here –
Rahu - It represents Illusion, Foreign Lands, Foreign
Things (foreign as in unknown things. So, for someone living in Punjab, culture
and rituals of Kerala is also unknown and hence Foreign), Drugs, Medicines, any
type of intoxication, Fame, Wealth, Success, Obsession, Past-life incomplete
Desires, Movies, Television, Online World, Cheating, Imagined Fears, Unusual
Things, Unique Things, Creativity, Rule breaker. Rahu also blows things out of
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.

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 Rahu in Ashwini Nakshatra – When Rahu is in Ashwini Nakshatra, it can make a person too assertive or initiative. Remember that Ashwini is 1st nakshatra and it is part of the 1st sign Aries. As Rahu gravitates us towards those things in life where it is placed, Rahu in Ashwini can make us gravitate towards being number 1 in whatever we are doing. They can be highly competitive and as Rahu remains a malefic energy, they can even adopt wrong ways to win their competitions in life. Basically, they can never imagine themselves as number 2 in any situation. As Ashwini is nakshatra of metaphysical healers and Nodes represent alternate medication, it shows someone who can be an alternate medication healer. They can also be Veterinary Doctors. Even otherwise, they would have love towards animals, especially horses. As this nakshatra is connected with horses, they can be very strong and powerful. They can be interested in metaphysics and occult side of life too.
But in relationship matters, same assertiveness takes the form of aggressive or dominant nature which can be harmful. It is very important that Mars-Ketu are well placed else it can very easily turn into violent or abusive relation. They need to keep their aggression in check to sustain their relationship.
Role of Mars – Mars's placement is important to guide Rahu in right direction, being Aries's lord..
Role of Ketu - Likewise, Ketu's placement is important to guide Rahu 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 Rahu in Ashwini.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Rahu in Ashwini can work in a chart.
