For Aśvini births of a masculine valence, the condition of limitless, observing, uncoupling, surrendering, abandoning, disinterested, ethereal, wandering, dispersing Ketu may considerably affect the outcome.
For those born into the paradigm of Ketu-ruled Nasatya, spirit guides, astral beings, ghosts, pilgrims, wanderers, cutters, dispersers, splitters, de-couplers, winds, flags, tails, cloudy figures, agents of impermanence and release, events of forgiveness and surrender, freedom from conventions, and inner listening may be especially influential.
Instructional guidance is provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Mezarthim. Their purpose is hearing the higher frequencies and healing intuitively.
"and now for something completely different"
Akasha-ruled chaps express the innovative, competitive vigor of Mangala through the observant, nebulizing filters of Ketu. Dasra fellows are famed for their pioneering inventions in medical, scientific, or technological fields. They are often obsessed with tools and gadgets. The 4th pada are nearly always physicians, nurses, or herbalists.
Competitive and irascible, often reclusive and disregarding of others' feelings, boldly productive Dasra are found in medicine, engineering, scientific instrumentation, and all species of gadgetry.
Azvikini are often found in medical or veterinary environments such as pharmacies, laboratories, hospitals, surgeries, and clinics. Due to their psychic [Ketu] capability to engage with astral patterns, Asvakini can also serve as medical intuitives and spiritual healers.
When looking for new ideas, they pursue an intuitive instinct to tap into the Akashic grid. Unconcerned with conforming to conventional expectations, they may seem selfish or rude. However, their job is to innovate, not to submit to old paradigms. Criticism rarely affects them.
Dasra-born hear the psychic instructions which guide their product design, surgical cutting, or drug formulation. Then, Aśvini actively pushes [Kuja] the ethereal vision into material realization. Whatever endeavor they choose to pursue, Aśvini tend to develop new methods and produce new things.
Azvakini fellows tend to prefer the freedom of bachelorhood. If they choose to marry, the mate shoulders most of the family duties. In relationships, much depends upon their Chandra.
Themes of eccentricity, invention, irritability, and psychic vitality may contextualize Aśvini's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Aśvini-Dasra

As a gay man belonging to the artistic, engineering communities of the Franco-Italian Renaissance , DaVinci would not have enjoyed the privilege of legal marriage.

Da Vinci was ambidextrous, meaning that his right hand and his left hand were equally capable of writing and painting. He was accounted by contemporaries as showing paranoid behaviors, and by modern standards he might be diagnosed with the learning disability called dyslexia.
According to accounts of his peers, LdV could draw in a forward direction with one hand while writing in a backward direction with the other hand. One of his signature skills was a a mirror-image cursive Roman-alphabet script, which he personally could read and he taught his apprentices to read, but which baffled most others.
LdV's pre-eminent skill was drawing. As a draftsman, he produced voluminous sketches for a broad range of ideas, inventions, and possibilities.
dhava-karaka (husband) * bahuta-karaka (variety)
Brihaspati occupies Rahu-ruled Shatavisaka nakshatra, indicating a social network full of visionaries, philosophers, and cosmic-scale thinkers. Da Vinci was reputed to have had an enormous number of diversely talented friends, including mathematicians, musicians, architects, playwrights, engineers, singers, and poets.
LdV was so popular and well-connected that the other normally ostracizing features of his identity (gay, illegitimate, left-handed, a flamboyant dresser, reputedly somewhat paranoid) were never obstacles to his success. Indeed, his remarkable social eccentricities were celebrated.
svadu-karaka (sweet) * kalatra-karaka (wifely companion)
CAREER - SHUKRA
Shukra occupies the patriotic, nationalistic, comfort-seeking, home-loving, foundational, property-owning 4th-from-Chandra, suggesting that he needed to live in gracious surroundings.

rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
Design-oriented Rahu in Shukra-ruled Pūrvāṣāḍhā occupies the emotionally associative, community-linking, economically gainful, profit-regulated, friendly, participatory, goal-oriented, socially-networked 11th-from-Chandra.
DaVinci was known for having a large, economically supportive community network. He was well-known + well-liked, despite (or likely because of) his outré clothing style , never short of funds and never deprived of opportunity.
kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
CAREER - KETU
Ketu rules the rising nakshatra of inventive Aśvini
Unlimited Ketu occupies the creative, showy 5th-from-Chandra. Generally also a signal of preference to not produce biological children but rather generate a higher creativity.
Ketu-3 indicates mental disorientation, unfinished projects. Da Vinci finished only a small percentage of the projects that he conceived at the draft stage. When his painting of The Last Supper was delayed extremely, the monastery that had commissioned this work notoriously threatened to jail him into the monastery until the painting got done.
