Introduction to Ashlesha Nakshatra

Welcome to the Ashlesha Nakshatra! (The Clinging Star) We’re excited you’re here.

Ashlesha Nakshatra 2nd Pada: Pada 2 of Ashlesha people are the ones who become the true nature of this nakshatra which is cunning, clever, harsh tongue and harsh speech and only giving or showing emotions to the one that will benefit them the most in future. The negative traits of the Nakshatra are seen here. Natives born in this pada will be highly shrewd and will not hesitate to pull down anybody to achieve their end objectives.

This is the most difficult Nakshatra pada to handle and people born in this pada can not be trusted. It is a highly ambitious pada which is usually liable to use all of Ashlesha’s negative traits like trickery and deceit to get what it wants. An inability to let go of possessions is another unique aspect of this pada.
