Ashlesha Nakshatra Compatibility and Incompatibility

Going by the norms of 'yoni kuta' or instinctive compatibility, Ashlesha Nakshatra is most compatible to Punarvasu Nakshatra with former being symbolic of male cat and latter being that of male cat. Consequently, both are non compatible to Magha and Purvaphalguni nakshatras. Cat's instinctive hostility to rats symbolizing the mentioned Nakshatras account for Ashlesa's mutual non compatibility to Magha and Purvaphalguni birth stars. Cat's instinctive affinity with hare, mongoose and monkey accounts for Ashlesha Nakshatra's compatibility with stars such as Anuradha, Sravana, Jyestha, Purvaashada and Uttarashada.
