Key Ashwini Traits

Ashwini Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

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

Ashwini-Ashwini Nakshatras

Ashwini is known for its spontaneity and streak of dominance sometimes translating to harshness. This is the nature of Ashwini inherently. To love someone is to never have to change yourself for them, and for two Ashwinis, it works well.

They share their interests, forge a beautiful friendship and understanding which can bloom into love and respect for each other. However, their dominance and controlling nature can also make them butt heads as neither is willing to be dominated by the other. The need to work together in the same direction in times of a clash of interests can occur.

The temperamental match (Guna) between you both is 28 out of 36 points with a 77% compatibility.

Ashwini-Bharani Nakshatras

Bharani is a cocktail of Mars and Venus. Bharani is one which knows how to soothe Ashwini’s controlling nature. Bharani is Ashwini’s support system and show them not sexuality, but sensuality, with a marked difference between the two concepts. Bharani are lively, very much an Aries constellation to match Ashwini’s dreams and interests and a fire combination in bed. This makes Ashwini-Bharani a great match.

Bharani also know how to make Ashwini feel confident by just being by their side and helping them deal with the fear of rejection and accepting themselves with all their beauty and flaws. Ashwini defends and loves Bharani with all their life.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is a staggering 33/36, which is the highest you have with any other nakshatra with a 91% compatibility.

Ashwini-Krithika Nakshatras

What brings Ashwini and Krittika together is sex… lots of sex. The sexual fulfilment in this relationship is at par, however, when it comes to a full-fledged relationship, responsibility and ownership of the relationship might be missing.

Ashwini do not necessarily know how to love Krittika, who sometimes come across as diffident. What Ashwini does instead is, chase. Ashwini is the predator; therefore, it makes the chasing seem fun. But to love and nourish Krittika is an entirely different thing. However, it seems good as long as it lasts, with ‘no strings attached’.

Temperamental compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36 which is a good 61%.

Ashwini-Rohini Nakshatras

Rohini stands for seduction and in ways not obvious. This means they are raw, have no rules alongside sex and passion and are die-hard romantics. Ashwini is enthralled and lured by Rohini which appears shy and feminine but charms them, nonetheless.

Rohini could be Ashwini’s ideal mate as they seem to be someone that Ashwini always wished to become. They both have a restless spirit, however, Rohini is possessive, and Ashwini doesn’t wish to be tied down.

Temperamental compatibility (Guna) between you both is 21/36 which is about 58-60%.

Ashwini-Mrigashira Nakshatras

Mrigashira is everything Ashwini would look for in a partner, yet not everything Ashwini needs. Mrigashira is intelligent and has superb observation skills which gets to the very intention of things, events, people and issues. Mrigashira also understands Ashwini’s needs and desires almost subconsciously and knows how to fulfill them to make Ashwini feel loved and wanted.

However, Mrigashira is possessive by nature and do not like confused individuals who could be ‘all over the place’ and Ashwini happens to be impulsive. They work from a place of sound reasoning which Ashwini might not want to always bother about. Ashwini may leave Mrigashira to make your errors because you may not take their suggestion. The ‘I told you so’ look on Mrigashira’s face after Ashwini makes a mistake might not go well with you.

Temperamental compatibility (guna) between you both is 21/36 which is about 58%.

Ashwini-Ardra Nakshatras

The only plane at which Ardra and Ashwini both can get along is sex. Sexually, they are a very good match. But on every other platform in life, Ardra will be disappointed.

Ardra is what seems to ‘look like’ a perfect match and a karmic union, but it is not the journey of 7 lifetimes, it is one which is a karmic tie and makes Ardra struggle with unsteady emotions, feeling on cloud 9 one day and getting caught up in arguments and clashes the next. Try to not be deeply involved or take it forward if you wish to not be hurt in the long run.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 17/36 which is 47%.

Ashwini-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Punarvasu is better off as a match for friendship than romance for Ashwini. We say this because Punarvasu has the habit of ensuring they are moral and advise others to be the same. Punarvasu keeps negativity and impulsiveness away and are generally people of extreme self-control, which is opposite to Ashwini's nature.

Punarvasu believes in doing the ‘right thing’ even when no one’s watching, and Ashwini believes in being impulsive and doing whatever you wish irrespective of who’s watching. There is a temperamental incompatibility.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 18/36 which is 50%.

Ashwini-Pushya Nakshatras

The kind of relationship which gets baked to become better with time. Ashwini fall in love with Pushya gradually. Ashwini feels Pushya is boring due to their workaholic nature and for being too constrained. However, when Ashwini gets closer, the Cancerian comes out of its shell to reveal to you what it doesn’t easily to anyone else. Its passionate nature.

Pushya does not judge Ashwini for their impulsiveness rather understands it quietly and supports them in their trials in a steady manner. Pushya have a satirical sense of humor which may surprise Ashwini, given they look so chaste by appearance. But when Pushya is in their fun mode, they can roast someone with class! Sexually, an awesome match and one which has equal proportions of love - partners till death do you apart!

Temperamental match (Guna) between you both 31/36 which is a great 86%.

Ashwini-Ashlesha Nakshatras

Ashlesha are mind manipulators and can be smart with it. Ashwini often, being impulsive, takes them on face-value and they fall for Ashlesha’s 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 and are often masters in occult which can make them manipulate situations to make you stay. The relationship will automatically seem ‘magical’ and mystical. You both share a good compatibility of temperaments due to the influence of Ketu.

Temperamental match (Guna) between you both is 27/36 which is a more than decent 75%.

Ashwini-Magha Nakshatras

Another karmic but not the most healthy relationship for Ashwini. Magha is one which brings a lot of unsettled conflicts between the both of you. Understand that these conflicts make you grow, just as much if not more than the healthy ones.

This is a complicated relationship since both of you have unrealistic expectations of adoration instead of focusing on factors important for a long-term stability.

Temperamental match between you both is 21/36 which is a 58% on compatibility scale.

Ashwini-Purva Phalguni Nakshatras

Purva Phalguni is a cheerful, social nakshatra which has a huge appetite for sex and tends to incline towards narcissism. What might seem risky to even an impulsive constellation like Ashwini is a matter of curiosity for Purva Phalguni which Ashwini might not be willing to take but still go with the flow against their wish.

The best aspect of this relationship however is the part ‘under the sheets’. You both show enough motivation and similar perceptions to make this relationship work.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 26/36 which is a more than decent 72%.

Ashwini-Uttara Phalguni Nakshatras

Uttara Phalguni is a sattvic constellation which is ruled by the Sun, and Ashwini is ruled by Ketu. The lords of both these constellations are inimical and unfriendly to each other. The one thing most important in a romantic relationship or friendship is trust, which both of you inherently lack for each other.

If Ashwini can somehow bring themselves to trust Uttara Phalguni and not get egoistical or unhealthily competitive with each other, this relationship can become great.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 14/36 which is a 38%. However, the whole picture can only be understood through matching of birth charts.

Ashwini-Hasta Nakshatras

We feel sorry, but this is the worst relationship for Ashwini Constellation - both emotionally and sexually. Hasta individuals are emotional, virtuous and exceptionally hard working with abundance of patience. Hasta are known to be Midas of the constellation realm where they can turn things exquisite by simply putting their hands and mind to it.

Ashwini, however, does not see this exquisiteness in Hasta’s nature. Ashwini tends to be impulsive and expect everything as soon as they dream of it, without knowing what it takes to make it a reality. Hasta can do that for you, but their humility is often misinterpreted as their weakness. Both of you deserve better and someone else.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 9/36 which is 25%.

Ashwini-Chitra Nakshatras

Quick passions die out quicker, that is the case with Chitra and Ashwini. Chitra is a constellation that loves to be explorative, even sexually. Therefore, the passion can be top-notch when it comes to the bedroom. However, Chitra has a volatile temperament, and you can be equally furious making the relationship a battle ground.

This compatibility is awesome for a friendship or a ‘friends-with-benefits’ situation, but not something which can stand the test of time. However, everything cannot be concluded from this alone. We suggest a complete horoscope matching to get the best idea regarding your relationship.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 13/36 which is 36%.

Ashwini-Swati Nakshatras

Being Ketu-ruled, Ashwini is bound to find many karmic connections across their lifespan. This is one with a Libra, which stands for balance and level-headedness. How is a balanced and calm person to be matched with Ashwini’s raw, energetic impulse? Sexually, Swati have different taste and reserve the right to dismiss Ashwini. Ashwini don’t find Swati sexy either. Swati is all about emotions and ‘slow-dancing in a burning room’ kind of passion while Ashwini is impulsive which can make them lose interest. This can still be fixed with time and understanding.

However, much like many relationships (friendships included) that we forge through a lifetime, this one could have similar karmic undertones to it. Ashwini likes Swati’s mind, their thought-process, ability to love & understand and Swati is surprised by Ashwini’s charisma, but they will always reserve the right to dismiss Ashwini for whatever reasons, if they wish, and you have been warned!

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 26/36 which is 72%.

Ashwini-Vishakha Nakshatras

Vishakha and Ashwini form a relationship which can lead to mostly a sexual relationship. Vishakha are sexually ferocious and dominant in bed. They resemble the ‘tigress’ which makes them hunt their interests down and have it. But Vishakha is not satisfied by any other constellation except one which exhibits the qualities of a ‘tiger’. In social settings, they appear the opposite of what they are within the bedroom. The bigger issue however is the lack of sentiments in this relationship. Commitment can be an issue from both sides.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 22/36 which is 61%.

Ashwini-Anuradha Nakshatras

Anuradha even though a water sign, is calm with Ashwini and Ashwini with them. Wondering how that works? The lords of their constellations - Saturn and Ketu - are friendly to each other. Ashwini is a bunch of impulsiveness, while Anuradha knows how to be calm in disposition and be in everyone’s good books.

Most of Ashwini's interests can be similar to Anuradha’s which makes the relationship longstanding. Anuradha know what the Ashwini needs and will give it. Ashwini can only hope to be someone who understands people instinctively and give them back the same levels of satisfaction, which is why Ashwini is motivated in this relationship.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 26/36 which is 72%.

Ashwini-Jyeshtha Nakshatras

Jyesthas are spiritually inclined and Mercurial by nature, which doesn’t go very well with Ashwini's ruling planet as well as nature. They are emotionally complex and detailed while Ashwini is straightforward.

Jyestha might not be as affected by Ashwini’s existence in the relationship making it clear that they possibly aren’t the one for you. However, for some reason, Ashwini is unable to let go. Jyestha respects and requires boundaries while Ashwini can cross it every time, Jyestha are also possessive which can create a fallout.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 15/36 which is 41%.

Ashwini-Mula Nakshatras

Talk about being similar yet difficult…. Phew! What’s the beauty here?? Sex. Given that you both are Ketu-ruled, you have similar sexual tendencies, which makes Ashwini and Mula enjoy their passions very well inside the bedroom. But can this amazing commonality (which also exists outside the bedroom) be taken all the way down to the aisle? Probably not.

You both might be impulsive, but in different ways. Ashwini have certain regards for social behaviors and conduct, Mula doesn’t. Apart from that, Ashwini will find some major issues with the way they both process things and have lived their lives so far, which cannot be turned into any sort of relationship unless they both completely change who they inherently are.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 13/36 which is 36%.

Ashwini-Purva Ashada Nakshatras

Talk about healthy levels of self-confidence, and you know it’s a Purva Ashada individual. Purva Ashada is pleasant, love the concept of love and understand it too and have an eye for beauty.

Purva Ashada see beauty in the most hopeless of things. They don’t care if you like them or not, if Purva Ashada likes something in you, they will charmingly let you know of your positives. This makes them a clean in mind kind of person. Purva Ashada chooses Ashwini and will love them. Purva Ashada is passionate and romantic, and it works well for Ashwini who deal with a fear of rejection.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 27/36 which is 75%.

Ashwini-Uttara Ashada Nakshatras

An unconventional relationship forms between the both of you. Uttara Ashada is diffident and a loner, while Ashwini is great at crossing boundaries to check
‘what’s up?’. This might not be the best approach. But gradually it can work out.

Ashwini needs to give Uttara Ashada space as they appear cheerful in front of everyone but within them lies a pool of loneliness. Learn to give Uttara Ashada space when required and your company when needed. This will make the relationship work beautifully.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 25/36 which is 69%.

Ashwini-Shravana Nakshatras

Good heavens, there aren't many great matches for Ashwini in terms of compatibility but with Shravana, it's different. Shravana seem workaholics with no time for love, but they can be sexually explorative and sensitive with an awesome sense of humor. Shravana is the kind to get back from work and find something that'll make Ashwini's day and that too without trying. This makes for a good match.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 24/36 which is 66%.

Ashwini-Dhanishtha Nakshatras

This is a risky connection. Often the relationships which are based off sex but terrible in reality is what this relationship is about. This can come off as borderline unacceptable behavior for Ashwini on an everyday basis making it a risky connection, and not in the positive way. The sex however can be moderately good to good considering both Ashwini and Dhanishta love sex.

This is a relationship which can trap Ashwini with delusional ideas of a future or through wrong steps taken during the relationship leading to a bad marriage.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 21/36 which is 58%.

Ashwini-Shatabhisha Nakshatras

Shatabhisha constellation is one which stays aloof to the point of being called ‘unemotional’ at times. This makes Shatabhisha the best constellation for sex, but not so good in terms of ‘intimacy’, since intimacy requires emotional connection. Shatabhisha tries but finds it hard to connect with people emotionally.

Shatabhisha’s intelligence is not emotional, rather analytical, besides in times of emotional support, Ashwini cannot depend on them which may create a fallout vis-a-vis long-term partnership.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 21/36 which is 58%.

Ashwini-Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatras

Seemingly idealistic, when looked up close can bring out things about Purva Bhadrapada which might not want you to stay. Purva Bhadrapada’s sexual passions are strong, which ideally is a good thing, but not at the cost of self-satiation and completely disregarding Ashwini in the process, especially in bed.

On a closer look, what ‘seemed’ to be dreamy is actually an arrogant beast in the wake of reality.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 15/36 which is 41%.

Ashwini-Uttara Bhadrapada Nakshatras

That one person you thought wasn’t worth a try, that is Uttara Bhadrapada for Ashwini. Ashwini thinks they can just be a colleague or an acquaintance until they see further. Uttara Bhadrapada can be the most unconditional lovers for Ashwini, specifically because Ashwini think they’re not desirable, when in fact, all Uttara Bhadrapada have for Ashwini inside them is love which Uttara Bhadrapada wish to show Ashwini without any motives.

Also, the steaminess in the bedroom which Ashwini didn’t think was possible with Uttara Bhadrapada because Ashwini didn’t pause to explore, should be given a try.

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 24/36 which is 66%.

Ashwini-Revati Nakshatras

Talk about a constellation that truly understands ‘intimacy’ on all levels, that is a Revati for Ashwini. Revati understands and upholds love above sexual pleasures. Revati will make Ashwini understand their own emotional depth and experience intimacy most profoundly. Revati’s love makes Ashwini feel powerful and strong.

Revati like sex with lots of romance, foreplay and emotions, which might not be possible every single time, and this can be a little frustrating considering Revati is sensitive about love and sex - a little too much. But this is the constellation which makes Ashwini feel like the most powerful person to ever exist because it brings out Ashwini’s sheer protectiveness towards them. Nice!

Temperamental match (guna) between you both is 26/36 which is 72%.
