Ardra - 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 that what will happen if Ardra Nakshatra is 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 Ascendant shows the life path then Ascendant Nakshatra will show the pattern of life. It shows the activities we follow throughout life as pattern.

Ardra - Ardra Nakshatra is from 6.40 degree to 20.00 degree of Gemini. Ardra is nakshatra of transformation, turmoils and chaotic events. This can be most closely related with accidents and emergencies. For more information on Ardra, please check this link - Now, if Ascendant Nakshatra is Ardra then Ascendant can be Gemini.

Effect of Ardra Nakshatra as Ascendant Nakshatra – Ardra is considered as one of the most malefic nakshatras. It is normally associated with Chaos, Transformative Events and Turmoils etc. So, if someone has Ascendant Nakshatra as Ardra, it can be seen that either they may deal with major transformations in their own life or they may help or serve people who are going through major chaos or both. So either ways, they are dealing with chaotic events. This Nakshatra can also be connected with person’s evolution by going through difficult situations in life.

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

Like, we have discussed all above traits and characteristics of Ardra Nakshatra which (any of them) can become Life Pattern for someone if it is person’s ascendant nakshatra. Now, in whichever House/Sign Ardra lord Rahu is placed in a Gemini Ascendant's chart, person’s life pattern involving aforementioned activities can be exhibited from that particular house/sign.

Here, going through Rahu’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, in this matter, Rahu in 7th house/Sagittarius for a Gemini ascendant chart would show that native can go through major chaos in his relationship matters. As it is life pattern, person can have continuous issues in these matters but as it is in Sagittarius sign, person can become a guide or a counselor in this area too. This is where transformation can take place. .

Whereas, Rahu in 6th house/Scorpio for Gemini ascendant chart, the person can go through chaotic situations in health. It also shows instability at work and person can get into many conflicts. But transformation can happen when same person can help or serve others in the same health or conflicts related matters.

Final example, Rahu in 4th house/Virgo would show that person’s life pattern can be about dealing with home and mother related matters and they may do it in a very perfectionist way. It also shows that life pattern can revolve around dealing with chaos related to home life or mother. It also shows that later in life person can also transform this difficult experience in helping others going through a similar chaos

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 Planet has the highest say but with Rahu, we need to see the dignity of its sign lord where Rahu is placed. That will decide the dignity or results of Rahu

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