MY RESEARCH NOTES (videos for each found below)
Top Moon placement in my survey of MMA fighters
3rd Tier Top Sun placement in my survey of Male models
Tied with Bharani for top Ascendant in my survey of Old Hollywood Sex Symbols (female)
Lowest Tier Moon placement in my survey of Porn stars (female)
Sidereal: 10'00-23'20 Taurus (Vrishabha); Tropical (approx.): Mid-Gemini
Notable Features (Astrological Physiognomy)
Rohini is placed in Taurus, the natural 2nd House relating to accumulation & abundance of food & knowledge, and in this way Rohini cosmically relates to the inward collection of these things in order to grow (its power is Rohana Shakti, the power of growth). For this reason, Rohini natives tend to be very open to experience & finding the beauty within every part of reality, "tasting" and "eating" all things cosmically in a baby-like manner, and that is reflected in a facial reading sense by the emphasis of the masseter, the muscle along the jaw that develops from chewing.
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.

Bagalamukhi is the "noose-face" Goddess associated with the Nagas. For example, turmeric is used to worship Nagas in South Indian; Ashlesha nakshatra gives the power to paralyze, poison, and overcome one's enemies. Bagalmukhi was said to be born in a lake of turmeric, and as can be seen, these women are often found in art in "vore" scenarios, in which a woman fully swallows her male prey (below). In the myth of Parvati swallowing Shiva whole in a snake-like manner, she is cursed by him and called "Bagalamukhi", while the mahavidya, Dhumavati, is produced from the smoke involved in this myth.

Explored in MUCH more depth in my video "Rohini Nakshatra 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.
