Here the Ashwini Kumars are considered as the sons of the Sun and her wife, Sanjana. It is believed that Sun married Sanjana, who was the daughter of Rishi Viswakarma. However, both were unable to live together as Sun’s heat and intensity.

Sanjana hence created her other self, who was a shadow of her, and she told her shadow to be with Sun. Sun, however, fell in love with Chaaya (the shadow). This made Sanjana infuriated, and she turned into a female horse and ran away.

Sun, when he got to know about it, also turned into a male horse and ran after her. There they both met near a beautiful meadow, and they made love. Sanjana gave birth to two sons named Dashraa and Nasatya; these both sons are known as Ashwini kumars. The sons of God Sun are known as healers, and they are known to send their healing powers to Earth.

That is why whoever is born under the Ashwini constellation has a bright future as a doctor or medic.

These males can be seen as aggressive and strong-headed, who may be a bit indecisive too. They very much like beginning new things; however, they are not very good at finishing them. These men don’t like activities that need patience because they are full of energy, and they like to perform tasks as they are running out of schedule.

Due to their stubbornness, they think of them as superior to others, and this nature doesn’t let them learn even from their mistakes.

Those who are born with this constellation of having it as their ascendant are mostly good looking, robust, have a shorter stature than average men. They also take care of their appearance and easily attract people to them. They tend to have an innocent look that makes them even admirable in others’ eyes. They love to adorn themselves, such as wearing accessories other than good clothes and shoes, since they know that they have got good looks.

Ashwini males generally love their family and marital life; however, their adamant nature may often lead them to circumstances by their family members. Their maternal uncle can come as a great help whenever these individuals face some serious situation. An Ashwini should marry after the age of 26 to 30; they are more prone to produce twins.

However, they may be interested in the medical field and serving other people there. They may also be a part of some social work as they are more about healing.
