Hmm before I start ashlesha I have to paste something I found on internet. Generally I dont agree perfectly wiht descriptions but his one is very close to what I feel about ashlesha so pasting it here. I have NOT written this.
Ashlesha nakshatra (Hydarae) Spread from 16:40’ to 30: degree Karka. Ruling planet is Mercury. Symbol-coiled up snake. According to Valmiki Ramayana, the twin brothers Lakshman and ShatrughnaIt were born in this nakshatra. is the nature of a snake to hide himself, to encircle and entwine, to creep on the chest, to embrace, and to enjoy or unite surreptitiously. All this is an attribute of Aslesha also. The cunningness of the serpent, its devious nature, the burning sensation of poison and pain along with all consequences that poison connotes are to be read in the constitution of Aslesha. The virtues and vices of the serpent are all in it. Chandra in Aslesha sicklied over with various faults in great intensity. Whoever would have his or her karmadhipati (Lord of the 10th house) or bhagyapati (Lord of the 9th house) in this star would run the risk of having all his or her principal acts in life handicapped, jeopardized or spoiled by many kinds of danger and obstruction. If the Lagna is in this star, the native would possibly be of wily disposition. Such people would like to work in secret and their words would carry the sting of poison.
Ashlesha is the serpent of the cosmos, carring deadly sting the poisonous snake moves through the universe. One of the most powerful ironies of the astro world is that ashlesha finds herself in Cancer. Cancer?? It is no place for ashlesha,hmm close understanding will reveal it actually is.
Cancer's crab has a very strong hold over its substrate. It is the most akkhadu rashi of all the rashis. Even the fixed earthy vrushabh cant match up with the stubborness that kark has in itself. In such an environment the serpent survives and prospers. Ashlesha happily glides in cancer.
Ashlesha astronomically is identified with star called Asselus Australis. It is moderate star with no taratmak results as such. Ashlesha-4 and its follower magha-1 is called as gandaant and moon here is not good at all.
Ashlesha people have the blessing of moon in karka and hence are calm cool and emotional people. Emotions run deep in this nakshatra. People are quite sharp and aware of surroundings
observant of everything. Nothing slips past the snake as it slithers on desert sand. Now the counter part. Hissing as the snake ashlesha spits venom at its victim, makes it highly poisonous nakshatra. Verrry verry unforgiving nakshatra, wont forgive and will never never forget. Jyeshtha will kill with sword ashlesha will slow poison its opponent. Ashlesha is the human incarnation of the intelligent King cobra. Agression is contained and controlled, other people dont realise that the person is angry or has contempt on mind. Most unfathomed nakshatra, you can know an ashlesha for years still wont be able to read what he/she is thinking at a particular scene.
Now the gandaant part. Ashlesha-magha gandaant is the most dreaded of all three. This part ignites the passion of the serpentine world and the passive energies of the snake world are ignited by planets in gandaant. Ashlesha gandaant requires immediate nakshatra shanti or it can even incur balarishta on the young born in gandaant.
Ashlesha is the god of serpents, ashlesha is the snake, ashelsha is the serpentine characteristics in humans ashlesha is the silent viper that lurks in the cosmos;Ashlesha is the killer perfect
