Ashlesha Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

Depending upon characteristics of each constellation (nakshatra), find out the best match for Ashlesha and their compatibility with each constellation.

Ashwini-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha are mind manipulators and can be smart with it. Ashwini often, being impulsive, takes them on face-value and fall for their craftiness and perceived charm instantly. Sexually, they are aware of the needs and wants of each other. Ashlesha are independent people but do not like independence in their mates which can make them manipulate situations to make Ashwini stay. The relationship will automatically seem ‘magical’ and mystical. You both share a good compatibility of temperaments due to influence of Ketu.

Total matching points (Guna) between you both is 27/36 which is a more than decent 75%.

Bharani-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha and Bharani share an unconventional relationship. Ashlesha can be cynical, and Bharani doesn’t mind it. Their rules regarding love are completely alien to the other, but somehow they work well.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 24/36, which is 65%.

Krittika-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha are mystical and crafty. They make Krittika come out of their sexual diffidence and be more explorative. Soon after, mistrust and jealousy get in the picture. The same things which attracted Krittika to Ashlesha initially, will get them to part. Krittika will, therefore, get into an unnecessary complicated relationship.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 20/36, which is 52%.

Rohini-Ashlesha Nakshatra

While Rohini is naturally seductive and enchanting, Ashlesha is so as well but only with ulterior motives. This makes them manipulative as well. They can do this not just in romantic partnerships but anywhere they feel they can attain something out of the situation. This will make Rohini possessive and untrusting. While Ashlesha will not respond to its emotions as it works from a place of mind and manipulation.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 13/36, which is 36%.

Mrigashirsha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Mrigashira is an intellectual who belongs to the serpent yoni, while Ashlesha is the serpent itself. They both present each other a façade of who they are. This might seem exciting but in reality can let them down to no extend. There is mistrust, insecurity and dishonesty in this relationship.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 15/36, which is an 42%.

Ardra-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ardra and Ashlesha fight like cats & dogs, obviously- given their yoni sign and therefore, their behavior. Ardra is too faithful and upfront about their love but also appear boring to Ashlesha which can be a turn-off. Besides, there is hardly a time when they’re both not fighting which makes a situation not peaceful for either at all.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 10/36, which is an 33%.

Punarvasu-Ashlesha Nakshatra

The first ever nakshatra where Ashlesha doesn’t want space. Punarvasu can be an advisor to most and Ashlesha reminds them that they are their lover, not an advisor. Punarvasu’s wisdom and mental strength is good, and they can be on the move always making Ashlesha jealous and possessive. Try to curb that. Great sex guaranteed.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 22/36, which is an 66%.

Pushya-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha finds Pushya boring. Ashlesha don’t think Pushya someone worth a long haul, so they speak to Pushya the way they wish to be spoken to, only to leave them soon. It is only after knowing Pushya’s secret, loving self which is extraordinarily loyal and understanding to Ashlesha which makes them fall in love with Pushya. This is also due to the underlying reason that Ashlesha’s are destined to never be understood by their partners and due to their nature, it’s hard to find or understand love in real forms, but with Pushya, an unconventional and emotionally deep bond forms for life.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 30/36, which is an 83%.

Ashlesha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Same Moon nakshatras have an unspoken understanding between them. Ashlesha and Ashlesha is a good combination understanding each other well, and compromising on areas which they generally don’t with others. Same complexities can bog them down as well, so be vary.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 28/36, which is an 77%.

Magha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Easy to get laid with, a sexual affair happens instantly with Magha only to realize soon that Ashlesha don’t get along with them. Magha and Ashlesha don’t get each other at all, and Magha feels free to make Ashlesha feel unloved and dejected. Ashlesha acts cool, detached and unbothered. The whole relationship, it all, goes downhill rapidly.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 10/36, which is an 33%.

Purva Phalguni-Ashlesha Nakshatra

It is not a ‘great person’ who becomes a great lover, but a compatible one. Purva Phalguni doesn’t connect with Ashlesha spiritually or emotionally although they appear social and fun. One can be friends, but the salt and spice that make a relationship work, is missing.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 13/36, which is an 38%.

Uttara Phalguni-Ashlesha Nakshatra

The classic case of any relationship and its dilemmas. Uttara Phalguni complains that Aslesha don’t give them enough space when they come too close and at the same time, don’t love them enough when they go away for a little bit. Ashlesha needs to find balance with Uttara Phalguni and then the love and warmth of their relationship can be explored better.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 18/36, which is a 50%.

Hasta-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Hasta don’t understand that people don’t love or commit to you because you love them the ‘most’, they do so because they feel understood, accepted, respected and compatible with them. A sense of friendship and honesty along with this makes for a good foundation for love to happen and season with time.

This is something Hasta doesn’t understand in a relationship with Ashlesha which causes emotional imbalance between them. Ashlesha cannot comprehend why Hasta needs emotional dependency so much and Hasta doesn’t get Ashlesha’s cynicism. Hasta tries to compensate this issue through the understanding of love which they have, and not necessarily what Ashlesha needs, and vice versa.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 19/36, which is a 53%.

Chitra-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Chitra finds in Ashlesha exactly what it needs- detachment. Chitra is sexually explorative, and Ashlesha can provide for it without being attached which further gives Chitra the space they wish for. Chitra likes the way Ashlesha’s mind works, which is crafty and Ashlesha like the fact that Chitra looks at thing from a perspective different than others. They both can keep each other interested in long.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 23/36, which is a 67%.

Swati-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Swati has trust issues with Ashlesha. They don’t think they deserve a chance; the relationship gets bogged down pretty soon. Try to look at the positives of your relationship than the negatives.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 12/36, which is a 30%

Vishakha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha belongs to the cat yoni and Vishakha is a tigress. Although they belong to the cat family, the need to prove superior due to being ‘lesser than’ prowess never leaves. Neither of you are ready to be who you are always feel like one is compromising on themselves to be adaptable which somehow ends in a power-play and tiffs.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 14/36, which is a 41%.

Anuradha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

True love isn’t easy. It involves trust, freedom, respect, compatibility, understanding and a soulful union. A lot of this can get complicated when any of it is lacking and possessiveness comes in the picture. It is normal to a point, but usually people don’t realize that these complications don’t constitute an ideal love and don’t work realistically in a relationship either. Ashlesha doesn’t understand Anuradha’s idea of love and shy away from emotional connect, which creates uneasiness and possessiveness in Anuradha. They both need to deal with this if they want this to work.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 19/36, which is a 52%.

Jyeshtha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

The good news for Ashlesha is that unlike others, Jyestha doesn’t see things in ‘black or white’ but rather with a lot of greys. Ashlesha looks at Jyestha as an ideal of how they would wish to evolve and loves them as a part of themselves. Jyestha knows where Ashlesha is coming from and also knows that given that choice, they wouldn’t choose the path that Ashlesha chose, which is why Ashlesha finds them fascinating. Ashlesha looks up to a Jyestha. Both are also Mercurial.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 26/36, which is a 72%.

Mula-Ashlesha Nakshatra

A spiritually-complex relationship exists between Ashlesha and Mula. They have a good compatibility score yet, there can be complexities regarding discarding of emotions of the other and possessiveness. Remind yourselves to not get petty.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 20/36, which is a 60%.

Purva Ashada-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Purva Ashada’s optimism doesn’t go well with Ashlesha. They can’t seem to understand how Purva Ashada can just change their views or have philosophies without going through pain and angst like Ashlesha did. This can make Ashlesha jealous of them. They can be good friends, but we’re not sure if love needs to harbor any kind of jealousy as such.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 14/36, which is a 42%.

Uttara Ashada-Ashlesha Nakshatra

A bad relationship from start to finish. Uttara Ashada is a Mongoose and Ashlesha is a ‘Naga’ or a serpent. Both of them are sworn enemies and will fight until one cuts the other with sheer bitterness. Uttara Ashada’s anger can be full-fledged with Ashlesha and Ashlesha’s cutting and terrible sarcasm and meanness can make Uttara Ashada never want to see their face ever again.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 8/36, which is a 25%.

Shravana-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha doesn’t understand how people can be happy and live in a bed of roses. This is a very bad sign in any relationship. Shravana are optimistic, sweet and kind, and Ashlesha hates it and will try to poison their life just the way Moon, Shravana’s planet can be poisoned. Sharava has a quiet, satisfactory and beautiful life and Ashlesha can’t handle that. They will do everything in their power to make sure it looks like their own’s.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 12/36, which is a 36%.

Dhanishtha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha likes Dhanishta for their strength, protectiveness and unconventional outlook. They can wish for a long-term with them, the only issue here is that Ashlesha should try to not be detached as Dhanishta needs assurance of emotions in a relationship.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 22/36, which is a 60%.

Shatabhisha-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha gets intrigued by the emotionally detached and seemingly cool Shatabhisha. Ashlesha may feel offended when Shatabhisha do not chase them or remain unbothered by their entry, exit or presence at all. Ashlesha starts wondering and try to uncover them. But they both know that they’re not honest with each other. Try to talk about what the idea of love for each of you is.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 18/36, which is a 30%.

Purva Bhadrapada-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha might flirt in the moment with Purva Bhadrapada with the intention of remaining detached. This may not go very well with Purva Bhadrapada, and they might wish to avenge them as they won’t easily forgive and forget.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 8/36, which is a 30%.

Uttara Bhadrapada-Ashlesha Nakshatra

Ashlesha loves the spice and excitement of love and the chasing game. Uttara Bhadrapada cannot give them that. We as well, believe that its more of a definition of infatuation or toxic love. Ashlesha can always try Uttara Bhadrapada’s way and see if that works. They are caring, kind, warm and compassionate- things that don’t hurt anyone!

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 18/36, which is a 50%.

Revati-Ashlesha Nakshatra

The type of love Revati wants, and the one which Ashlesha understands are different. Both are Mercurial, yet Ashlesha has just begun looking for answers within their intellectual boundaries, Revati has moved beyond it and has now chosen to self-realize. They both might be on the same road, but at different distances from each other with their own personal discoveries. Ashlesha doesn’t understand the love, time and care which Revati desires in a partnership.

Total matching points (guna), between you both is a 9/36, which is a 30%.
