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 initiate 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

matrikaraka (mother) * garha-karaka (village)
Mom was a noted reciter of epic poems from memory; however, she had never been taught to read Somana-yuti-Ketu..
NT credited his mother with giving him the practical hand-skills to construct his own tools for conducting experiments, as well as for transferring to him the universal-core (coeur, heart) interconnected view of reality.
NT said that he received from his mother his prodigious memory and mental capacity for solving problems in his head without a need for writing out calculations or plans. Chandra-yuti-Ketu
Chandra in classroom-6 *** Health Challenges
Multiple and Recurring Illnesses, physical and mental
Candescent Chandra in bhava-6 typically suffers a pattern repeating rhythms of ailments and discomforts. Health issues due to emotional exhaustion from overwork in servitude to matters of 6-Kanya = workplace, animosity, accusations, jealousy, litigation, disagreement, crime.
Chandra-6 feels most comforted in situations of injustice or conflict. Chandra-6 is often imbalanced in roles of caretaking and protection. Tesla's Chandra-yuti-Ketu provides sufficient detachment from the conflicts that allows Chandra to keep working.
Cluster of graha in aribhava-6 * Conditions of exploitation and crime
Tesla was stricken by illness both mental and physical throughout his life. He was also a frequent victim of crimes such as robbery both gross and subtle, and other types of exploitation.
In Rahu-Budha bhukti the powerful rogesha Budha produce severe and nearly fatal illness from cholera. However, the illness-and-poverty producing rogesha-6 is not a killer. He survived with no lasting debility.
MARRIAGE partnership emotional equity support expectations
Although a handsome, wealthy man and a highly eligible bachelor, Tesla demurred on the many offers to make acquaintance of young ladies.
His most passionate love affair appears to have been with a female white dove, who appeared regularly at his windowsill.

Shani-3 writing, reports, instructions, diagrams, documentation the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra
Shani resides in the emotionally dignified , social-ordering, leadership-seeking; 10th-from-Chandra
Shani = Vriddhi-pati-11 earnings
During Vriddhi-pati-11 Shani mahadasha, 1898-1917, Tesla had been a millionaire with a huge income from his electrical inventions. He invested the bulk of his profits into new experiments (some very pricey) and lived in expensive hotels (Rahu-Guru-12).
Compare Edison vs Tesla
large-scale infrastructure utilities development for Tesla, Vriddhi-pati-11 = Shani in Bhava-3 + Surya-yuti-Budha + Shukra. Tesla's earnings are governed by Vriddhi-pati-11 Shani. He did earn his first million dollars by the age of 40 but he eschewed excess income[Shani] Rather than take a massive personal profit, Tesla made most of his designs available for free so that other engineers could build upon his instructions (3).
By contrast, for General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison , earnings are governed by vriddhi-pati-11 Chandra the Holder-and-Binder. Chandra Vriddhi-pati-11 derives emotional security from income and uses the marketplace gains to establish deeper roots in the place of settlement. Edison used his income to buy numerous properties, homes, and educations (4) for himself and his family members. Chandra-Mangala yoga in bhava-4 containing Vriddhi-pati-11 Chandra and bhratru-pati-3 sales-marketing Mangala. Edison's bhukti of Rahu in bhava-2 occurring in midlife sustained his coffers via the fruits of litigation and licensing (Rahu-2 gives predominantly the effects of Edison's Shukra-Surya-Shani in 6.).
NT limited his social interactions very cautiously, so as to preserve his focus (and likely also to preserve his fragile mental health).
By contrast General Electric 1847-1931 Thomas Edison was a robust lover of sense-pleasures and socialized with the luxury class.
rajyalobha-karaka (ambition) * picchala-karaka (slippery)
CAREER - RAHU
His first severe psycho-mental breakdown occurred in third year studies at university. After ceasing to attend lectures and descent into a gambling addiction, NT cut all communications with his relatives. After a brief reunion with his family, NT father died, and NT plunged again into severe depression.
Ketu kavandha-karaka (headless) * chidra-karaka (gaping) * vasana-karaka (vacuum)
CAREER - KETU
Ketu rules Aśvini inventiveness
Toward the end of his life, during Ketu-6 mahadasha Tesla lost most of his patent income, lost his assets in bankruptcy, and suffered the increasingly debilitating consequences of obsessive-compulsive disorder including anorexia.
At the onset of maraka dhana-pati-2 /L7 Shukra Mahadasha, he died alone in a New York hotel room, and his body was discovered several days later.
