The first one of Saturn through Nakshatras, i.e. Saturn in Ashwini Nakshatra.
Let’s look at important things here –
Saturn - It is all that which we don't like in our life. Saturn is Delay, Frustration, Restriction, Limitation and Anxiety. It is people of Authority, like Boss at your Work Place or Father-Figure at Home. Saturn is our Karmic Debt from past-life. Saturn is the things we didn't treat too well in our past life. Saturn is our Challenges and Lessons of life. Saturn is Old-Age, Teeth/Bones in Human Body, Diseases, Changes etc. Saturn represents our Step-Relations, it means that wherever Saturn sits, people related with that house give us Step Treatment. Saturn is Hard Work, Efforts and most importantly Perseverance etc. Nothing comes easy and in one go with Saturn. You have to work hard continuously over the longest possible period of life. Saturn makes a person Legend as Legends have one thing in common that they choose one field and work hard in it for whole life.
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.
Generic Results of Saturn - Lots of things change in life with Saturn. Hence, many things will change with Saturn in different nakshatras. As Saturn represents delay, hard work and perseverance, it shows that whichever nakshatra it is placed in, Saturn will give results with hard work, delay and perseverance. With Saturn, it doesn’t matter if he is in friendly sign/nakshatra or enemy sign/nakshatra. Saturn represents either challenges or even more challenges anywhere. It can never be convenient or pleasant in any house/sign positions, not even in exaltation. Another generic thing will be Saturn’s results in relationship matters. Saturn is a cold or harsh planet. In any house/sign/nakshatra, Saturn would show that people related with that house will give person a very harsh or cold treatment. In romantic relations, Saturn will just suck the pleasure factor away and relationship life can be very dry and cold. People say that after 35 Saturn gives better results but I feel that it is not that Saturn will bring better results but we realize our limitations in life till 30-35 years of age and we understand that what we can expect in life and what we cannot. With this background, let’s understand Saturn in various nakshatras.
Interpretation of Saturn in Ashwini Nakshatra – Here, Saturn is in debilitation. Hence, it is in category of more challenging. Sign lord Mars is enemy with Saturn and Nakshatra lord Ketu is another unforgiving malefic energy. So, we can say that we have a very tough planetary placement to deal with. If Saturn represents delay, hard work and perseverance, here it would mean that person will get results after further delay, hard work and perseverance. In whichever house it is falling, person may need to put efforts almost lifelong to get results. If they don’t show perseverance then expecting any result would be a far-cry. Understand that Saturn is a cold planet and Aries is a fire sign. So, even the elemental energy is in conflict. Relationship matters of that particular house should better be forgotten. Only hope is long distance relationship. As I said, in matters like education and career, the results will come after immense hard work and delay. Good thing is that in this process, person will naturally become a very hard working person because nothing will happen in his life without hard work.
Most common professions for them can be Medicine, Law, Police or Technology field etc. But even in these professions, person will get results after great delay. As Saturn is debilitated, they can be law-breaker also. In medicine, they can be a Veterinarian. As Ashwini is also nakshatra of go-getter approach, these people in early life can have a laid-back attitude and may not like to work hard. Then as they don’t get any results, they start learning to put extra efforts.
Role of Mars – Mars's placement is important to guide Saturn in right direction, being Aries's lord..
Role of Ketu - Likewise, Ketu's placement is important to guide Saturn 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 Saturn in Ashwini.
Conclusion – So, this is how I see Saturn in Ashwini can work in a chart.
