ASHLESHA is a rakshasa or demoniac star, sharp in nature and symbolized by the coiled snake.  This suggests an anti-social, tactless character who can be penetrating in knowledge and austere in habit.  It is translated as “the entwiner,” and its predominating deity is Sarpa, the god of the serpents, representing the lower classes.  Ashlesha can bring pain but also good transcendental aspirations. When this star is on the ascendant, the person is cruel, fickle, with few children, unsociable, having awkward manners and being unable to adapt to the environment.  The native is capable of much exertion, but is unkind and needs to develop tact and needs to do humanitarian deeds.  This person can cause some anxiety to the parents, and will accept some service position in society. When the Moon tenants this star, one is insincere, unable to control eating, sinful, deceitful and ungrateful.
