In the zodiac at 0° in M.esha there is a reddish star" which the astronomers call Arietis. The Indians named it Asvini. The Indians worshipped it in personification of the dawn — more plausibly, morning and evening star. They mentioned it to explain the life's journey; the entrance to and exit from this material plane — apparently the prana (breath), inhalation and exhalation; and in the physical body its passage through the nose and speech. Every year from this point of the cycle the yearly trek of the sun begins. Asva (The horse) is the symbolic expression of journey. Asvini (from Asva) is the power that sets one in motion.

To understand the star better lets delve into vedic stories related to ashwani kumars the diety of Ashwini nakshatra.
Samjna, the wife of Surya, was unable to bear his heat went to a place called Uttara Kuru and lived there in the form of a mare. Her husband found her there and joined her in the form of a horse. They had two children named Nasatya and Dasra. These two became the Ashwini twins.
Once, the Ashwini's were filled with desire for Sukanya, the wife of the sage Chyavana. She was very beautiful and much younger than her husband, who was ugly, old and blind. They tried to trick her by offering to restore her husband's youth. She accepted their offer, but when her husband was turned into a young man, he was turned into a spitting image of the Ashwinis! Three identical men were there before Sukanya, and she had to pick her husband from them. It was a knotty problem all right, but she was able to successfully pick out her husband, distinguishing him by the peaceful expression in his eyes. The two Ashwini's were very much chagrined. Their ploy had failed.
Although their motives were dishonorable, the sage decided that they should receive a reward for restoring his youth. He taught them a long forgotten incantation from the Vedas, and told them that not even Brihaspati knew these verses. They were able to use this to good effect, getting the right to have portion of Havis, in exchange for their knowledge. This story is told in greater detail here.
They are also the fathers of the Pandava twins, Nakula and Sahadeva, whom they begat on Madri, King Pandu's wife. Since the Ashwinis are associated with horses, the Pandava twins were excellent horsemen.
After a few days, the sage noticed that Upmanyu still looked very healthy. The sage then asked him, "I take away all the food that you get, so what do you eat?" Upmanyu explained that he offered the sage everything, and that he ate what he got the second time he went begging. The sage scolded Upmanyu and ordered, "You shouldn't beg twice, because then there will be nothing left for other students. you should not be greedy. " Upmanyu obediently followed what his teacher said.
After some days, the saint noticed that Upmanyu still looked hale and hearty and asked him, you still look healthy, what do you eat these days?" Upmanyu replied saying, "when I take the cows out to graze, I drink some of the milk that they give. " The sage immediately forbade Upmanyu from having milk from the cows. As usual, Upmanyu followed his teacher's instructions.
However Upmanyu's health still did not suffer. The sage approached him again after a few days and asked him what he ate. Upamanyu promptly replied that he ate the foam that the calves produced after having milk from the cows. The sage told Upmanyu that this would affect the health of the calves and he should not do so. Upmanyu followed Ayodhdhaymya's advice.
The next day, when Upmanyu took the cows for grazing as usual, he felt very hungry. When he couldn't control his hunger anymore, he ate the leaves of a plant called Aak. The leaves of this plant were very poisonous and Upmanyu became blind. He kept wandering in the forest and then fell into a dry well. When Upamanyu did not return in the evening, the sage was worried and went with disciples to look for Upmanyu. They found Upmanyu in the well and pulled him out. When the sage heard how Upmanyu had been blinded, he asked him to pray to the Ashwin Kumars, the doctors of the gods, and request them to restore his eyesight. Soon, the Ashwini Kumars appeared and gave Upmanyu a medicine. and said that he would not eat anything without Ayodhdhaumya's permission. The Ashwini Kumars tried their best to convince Upmanyu to have the medicine but Upmanyu said that he would rather stay blind forever than disobey the orders of the sage.
The gods were impressed by Upmanyu's love, respect, and devotion for his teacher and blessed him. They restored his eyesight. Ayodhdhaumya was also very pleased with Upamanyu and told him that he had passed the test. The sage blessed Upmanyu and gave him a boon that he wouldn't need to learn religious texts but would know them automatically.
