Notable Features (Astrological Physiognomy)

Cat-like, piercing eyes

An interesting correlation in that Ashlesha's yoni type is the cat; sharp & sparkling eyes created by full, high cheek apples. In physiognomy, this is also indicative of a type of controlling and cruel nature, relating to their cosmic purpose of consumption of the weak & denial of pleasure. Cats are one of the few creatures that hunt for leisure, and this is reflected in Ashlesha's cosmic sexual habits (explored in the video below).

Excited by how much you match? I'd love to see!

These astrological facial morphs were created by combining dozens of natives of the nakshatra to find the "average" appearance created.

Goddess Connections

Purva Ashada is the height & refinement of Venus in being the final Venus-ruled nakshatra. This nakshatra relates to beauty in its most outward, manifest, and extravagant form, which is why Purva Ashada dominates in the fields of film, cinematography, visual arts, graphic design, and so on. It is the cosmic force most aligned with the principles of objective, geometrical beauty that speaks to the senses (rather than subjective or cerebral descriptions or judgements of art/beauty), and it is the "cosmic perfectionist" in terms of aesthetic. For this reason, we find these natives possess a special connection with the final Mahavidya, Kamala (Mahalakshmi), who is the Goddess that heals Venus issues using the sensorial bija of the Moon, SHRIM.

Kamala & Aphrodite (left) represent the pinnacle of manifest & exterior beauty. Venus is the significator of Tantra, using & elevating the senses for spiritual experiences rather than renouncing them, and in this way Kamala teaches that the highest truths can be found within absolutely anything we experience, through passionately & devotedly dissolving ourselves into the things we love & blissfully enjoy without duality (relating to Venus' exaltation in Pisces).

श्रीं क्लीं श्रीं नमः॥

This is one of my oldest nakshatra videos. It will be remade soon in the style of new much more in-depth and expansive 2019 & beyond videos.


Explored in MUCH more depth in my video "Ashlesha in the Modern World", with other archetypes shared as well.

Ashlesha relates to the archetype of vore, or the consumption of one being fully by another-- especially shown in Ashlesha art as a female, snake-like being consuming "unworthy" or weak males. This can be seen, for example, in the role of Jennifer played by Megan Fox (Ashlesha Moon) in Jennifer's Body (middle). In the film Hisss, a nagina Queen (bottom left) consumes males who try to obstruct her from union with her Naga King, and that film is directed by Ashlesha Moon native, Jennifer Lynch. When Vore is considered in terms of sexual fetishes, it is thought of as subtype fantasy of being dominated by the feminine-- or some say, becoming "unborn". Ashlesha is also the archetype of the Dominatrix, as the woman who craves to be dominated and, when a man fails to do so, quickly reverses (Bagalamukhi is the Goddess of reversals) the "gender" polarity and begins to dominate over him on an energetic level, which is shown in art quite literally. 50 Shades of Grey is written by an Ashlesha Moon native; the dominatrix film "My Mistress" stars Ashlesha Sun & Ascendant native, Emmanuel Beart (far right); "Venus in Fur" stars Ashlesha Moon native Emmanuelle Seigner as the Goddess-in-disguise Dominatrix; and Catherine Deneuve (Ashlesha Moon) stars in "Belle De Jour", about a woman who unconsciously dominates her husband through her rampant sexual desires for domination. This relates to the way that Ashlesha is the cosmic stage of attempting to escape the grip of the mother, melting the frozen ice of the frigid and virginal sexual center, and warming up into autonomy & sexuality (beginning the art of manipulating the Kundalini). Vore is a depiction of those who fail to pass this stage and therefore are "unborn" and assimilated into a more dominant being. Many more Ashlesha related archetypes are explored in more depth at the video link above.


For those who produce astrology content, please note: Most of the information contained on this page (other than traditional associations and anything else noted/sourced otherwise)-- such as the archetypes in art and the media, facial appearance & physiognomy notes, facial morphs, many elements of the Goddess connections to nakshatras, and statistical graphing notes-- is original research, not something regurgitated from elsewhere for anyone's random use, as is often done on the internet. For that reason, I am highly appreciative if you reference my work in any content you plan to publish that includes these original notes. I put a ton of my time into collecting and sharing this information for free, and really appreciate it not being taken carelessly.
