Rahu, the shadow planet of desire and rebellion, is in pada (part) one of Ashwini from August 28th to October 30th 2023, the first pada of the first nakshatra of the zodiac.

Ashwini is known for impulse and daring, and its Shakti, or special gift, for Quick Action, favours initiative and making your mind up quickly. Pada one of this asterism also relates to Aries navamsha, the chart of marriage and good fortune, which gives Rahu underlying strength and focus, where you can innovate and revolt against the existing order.

At other times it pays to take your time and stick to a formula, but this transit sees you going out on a limb in a colourful and individual way. An opportunity may only be around for a short time and you can’t afford to wait for others to make their mind up.

The double-Mars rulership of this pada gives you courage to face opposition or criticism as a front-runner, though be mindful not to take your revolutionary spirit too far. The first nakshatra pada is linked to the Dharma tendency, which relates to action and vocation, and here you find fulfilment in Rahu’s natural desire to rebel. A foreign or exotic type of business suits your style and you become a great exponent of a trend or lifestyle whose time is yet to arrive.

The influence of protective, expansive Jupiter on Rahu favours knowledge and education, and you have the skills to make a success out of a school or teaching enterprise. Keep to your principles, and you can make being an outsider work for you.
