Key Chitra Traits

These individuals go through the most challenging situations in life and come out more refined. This is not a one-time process, as there is no such thing as perfection. They are therefore, motivated to keep on working on themselves each time something drastic or pressuring takes place to enhance their personality.

It is an on-going process, and the end result are the good karmas that they perform which contribute to them being remembered as someone who was of good intent and did good to others, or someone who lost this opportunity and did the opposite, wasted their life and will be forgotten in no time.

The lesson of their life and the process of ‘becoming’ by self-work, own efforts and most importantly, their choices in life is what the purpose of life of a Chitra is.

  • A love for Arts and beautiful things: Chitra’s deity is Vishwakarma, the ideal artist. They are known to have a huge love for art and beautiful, pleasurable thigs in life. They are also quite adept in various forms of arts such as painting and fine arts, acting, theatre and sculpting.
  • Transforms from darkness to light: Chitra’s life path involves them going through extreme life pressures which can stress them a great deal only to come out as a beautiful, shining diamond. They handle pressure extra-ordinarily well and transform their lives out of the circumstances.
  • They are makers of their own life: They do not depend on anyone to tell them what to do. They march at the beat of their own drum and create a life which they want to manifest in reality, and they often do it single-handedly.
  • Cannot sit idle: You will never see a Chitra sitting idle as they always want to do something and will either be doing chores or their work without having the time to waste on useless things.

Natural instinct of Chitra

Chitra belongs to the tiger yoni, which is characterized by its ferocity. They are ferocious and have a high sex drive. They are, therefore, one of the constellations which cannot be easily paired with any other since their sexual energy is hard to match. Sexually, they are best paired with the same yoni. But for overall romance, love and emotion – which can make or break the joy of sex or have a fulfilling relationship on all levels – Chitra and Vishakha are best compatible.

Broad Instinct of Chitra

There are three Gana or basic nature type that a person belongs to which frame out outlook, reactions and attitude towards life. These are Dev Gana, Manushya Gana and Rakshasa Gana. Vishakha belongs to the Rakshasa Gana. Rakshasa Gana constitutes of people with a heightened sense of intuition, they pick up on energies very quickly and understand if there is any negativity present around them. They are generally soft-spoken, unlike the name of the Gana, but they raise their voice whenever required.

Broad Nature of Chitra

In Indian philosophy, there are three Gunas, known as -Sattwa, Rajas, and Tamas. These are known as the three processes that build a successful life.

The guna of Chitra Nakshatra is Tamasic which can give the people of this Nakshatra a tendency towards overindulgences and being too consumed by beauty and luxuries. At times, they could also be unethical, arrogant and ego-centric.

Chitra Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

Depending upon characteristics of each constellation (nakshatra), find out the best match for Chitra and their compatibility with each constellation.

Ashwini-Chitra Nakshatras

Quick passions die out quicker, that is the case with Chitra and Ashwini. Chitra is a constellation that loves to be explorative, even sexually. Therefore, the passion can be top-notch when it comes to the bedroom. However, Chitra has a volatile temperament, and you can be equally furious making the relationship a battle ground. This compatibility is awesome for a friendship or a ‘friends-with-benefits’ situation, but not something which can stand the test of time. However, everything cannot be concluded from this alone. We suggest a complete horoscope matching to get the best idea regarding your relationship.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 13/36 which is 36%.

Bharani-Chitra Nakshatras

All that glitters is not gold. Chitra is explorative, adventurous and fun, just like Bharani, but they are not attached emotionally and can’t reciprocate the same emotions as Bharani. Chitra are explorative about sex and adore admiration from any and everyone. This can make Bharani feel dejected. If Bharani gets emotionally involved, they will be hurt.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 6/36, which is 16%.

Krittika-Chitra Nakshatras

Krittika’s over-analyzing nature in the wrong direction will displease you both in the long run. Chitra are exciting and fiery in their passions and bring Krittika out from their fortress that they have built around their emotions. Krittika loves and adores them. Do not try to be distrustful or test Chitra. They are not the ones to sit and be tested by anyone. They will leave and not turn back at all. You will both lose out on a good relationship.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36, which is 61%.

Rohini-Chitra Nakshatras

Rohini likes being dominated in partnerships. As long as there’s someone to protect, support and fulfil their romantic desires, they are fine with dominance, and their relationship with Chitra is just that. Issues arise when Rohini discovers that Chitra is also selfish and self-serving. Chitra cannot be possessed and Rohini gets hurt wondering why Chitra has an issue with commitment when Rohini doesn’t have an issue with Chitra’s dominance. Rohini should accept the way Chitra is, or simply look out if they think that’s better for both.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 25/36, which is 69%.

Mrigashira-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra hates criticism and doesn’t believe in constructive criticism at all. The word doesn’t exist for them. Mrigashira can give Chitra doses of it. Mrigashira and Chitra have so much in common yet, Chitra has one huge difference. Mrigashira feels committed to the one they love and attach all their relationship ideals to that one person. Mrigashira never breaks the unspoken code of loyalty, while Chitra is non-committal. Mrigashira doesn’t understand how people can be in casual relationships or one-night stands or love someone yet be afraid of committing. This relationship becomes full of drama after a point.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 12/36, which is 33%.

Ardra-Chitra Nakshatras

The love of Ardra is unconditional and full of emotions for Chitra. They give in very easily which can feel boring to Chitra. However, their steadiness, abundance of warmth and good humor with immense understanding can make them an ideal couple even though they’re both quite different. Convention is boring anyway, so think outside the box and the normal structure of relationships and we have what Ardra and Chitra represent in a beautiful manner. They can be an example of what unconventional people can come together to create without making any fuss.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 23/36, which is 65%.

Punarvasu-Chitra Nakshatras

Punarvasu is wise and Chitra loves their wisdom. Chitra are ready to connect with Punarvasu in whichever way they wish. When people are too focused on getting committed, it can lead to manipulations and falseness, instead of enjoying the relationship enough on all realms to finally commit lifelong because they genuinely like it. This view of relationship is what happens between both Punarvasu and Chitra. Both are not too much into getting committed easily, and who knows, maybe the matching of similar viewpoints in this regard might have them ending up together.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 20/36, which is 58%.

Pushya-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra doesn’t seem realistic to Pushya. Chitra are impulsive and not stable in their feelings or thoughts. Chitra gets influenced soon, which makes Pushya want to show them the reality. Chitra doesn’t like it and instead moves away the more realistic things get. Chitra’s immaturity can hurt Pushya.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 12/36, which is 33%.

Ashlesha-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra finds in Ashlesha exactly what it needs -detachment. Chitra is sexually explorative, and Ashlesha can provide for it without being attached which further gives Chitra the space they wish for. Chitra likes the way Ashlesha’s mind works, which is crafty, and Ashlesha likes the fact that Chitra looks at things from a perspective different than others. They both can keep each other interested in a long time.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 23/36, which is 67%.

Magha-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra being sexually explorative and potent along with using sex as a motive to attain power and status is not unknown at all. Magha can be the same, which connects them both well. This relationship works due to similarity in nature and ambitions driven by sex and materialism.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 18/36, which is 52%.

Purva Phalguni-Chitra Nakshatras

With Mars and Venus relationship, it is important that other factors match as well. Remember that in most relationships, there is a factor of commitment played by Jupiter, the factor of loyalty played by Saturn and the factor of emotion and ethos played by Moon and Venus. Most ideal relationships that you will see, have all of these factors compatible which lead to a successful union. Therefore, when this volatile combination of Mars and Venus dies out, which it usually does, in absence of anything substantial enough, both Chitra and Purva Phalguni will not be able to stand one another. Thank us for warning you beforehand.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 6/36, which is 19%.

Uttara Phalguni-Chitra Nakshatras

Sexual incompatibility along with incompatibility on views makes the relationship of Chitra and Uttara Phalguni extremely challenging. Chitra likes to be free especially in their sexual escapades and is non-committal, whereas Uttara Phalguni is a Nakshatra of marriage and completely poles apart. There is sadly no way for you both to work out unless there are satisfactory points in overall horoscope matching.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 16/36, which is 47%.

Hasta-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra and Hasta’s love will stand the test of time. All that Hasta wants is Chitra’s company who seem so warm and fulfilling to Hasta emotionally and Hasta’s earthiness brings stability to Chitra. They love each other’s company and will strengthen each other in times of trial.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36, which is 65%.

Chitra-Chitra Nakshatras

Same Nakshatras and Moon signs are ones who are almost aligned with each other (apart from partner signs) and fight and argue as well but not leave or forsake the other. That is the magic of same nakshatras. Love is guaranteed, just ensure your overall horoscopes match as well so that in case of any issues, it can be worked upon.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 23/36, which is 66%.

Swati-Chitra Nakshatras

To the rest of the world, you both appear to be hard and uninterested, but is that true? Swati is the gem of the ocean -the pearl, and Chitra is represented by coral, a gem found in depths of the oceans. How can you both not be emotionally attached when your symbols are born out of it? Open up to each other, it’s not so hard to connect. There is a special bond between you two.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36, which is 64%.

Vishakha-Chitra Nakshatras

A relationship with the greatest of emotional love and awesome sex. Vishakha and Chitra are lucky enough to have found that. This is the best relationship both of them can have. Things just get better with time.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 27/36, which is 74%.

Anuradha-Chitra Nakshatras

Anuradha is all in for love, and Chitra is all in for sex -ever ready for what they both want and naturally in-tune with their own behaviors. This, however, doesn’t work in this relationship at all. Chitra’s definition of love and Anuradha’s ideologies do not match. This is, therefore, a very stressful relationship and Chitra wants to run out of it in the opposite direction at the earliest.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 8/36, which is 23%.

Jyeshtha-Chitra Nakshatras

Heard of couples who initially hate each other and can’t see eye to eye, only to fall as madly in love one day making everyone around them face-palm? Yes, that would be Jyestha and Chitra. Chitra is sexually explorative, and Jyestha thinks they’re a little kid who’s curious only to go nowhere with their sexual escapades. This irritates Chitra. There is a reason. Chitra, on careful speculation, finds in Jyestha what they have been looking for in their lovers all along. There is passion, love and fun in this relationship once they both allow it, but in general, whatever Chitra does, Jyestha disapproves because they’ve already been there, done that.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36, which is 62%.

Mula-Chitra Nakshatras

Love happens easily here as your personalities match to an extend and Mula recognizes Chitra’s un-conventionalism, especially spiritually and takes off the façade Chitra presents to the world as inside, they can be insecure of the fact that people judge them. The ease of being themselves is enough to take this adventure forward.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 27/36, which is 72%.

Purva Ashada-Chitra Nakshatras

Another Mars-Venus combination. Purva Ashada are creative and colorful yet completely wrong for Chitra. The only thing that works here is the passion which starts off the relationship and that dies away as neither wish to know the other and is just not interested. The breakup happens soon after the sex dissipates.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 12/36, which is 36%.

Uttara Ashada-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra is frivolous in their attitude which is different to that of Uttara Ashada. Uttara Ashada is cool and simple enough to let Chitra just be and accept them for who they are. This is a better option for friendship than for love. If Chitra wants a romantic relationship, they need to take the lead sexually.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 21/36, which is 55%.

Shravana-Chitra Nakshatras

In a relationship, Chitra and Shravana can have exciting times and a romance to remember. The respect they have for each other keeps their friendship alive even if there is fallout. They wish the best for each other with or without a relationship and honestly, a lot of people don’t understand that is what love is all about in a world of pretense. Chitra is also very protective of Shravana and will always have their back.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36, which is 58%.

Dhanishtha-Chitra Nakshatras

There’s a level of immaturity in this relationship as both Chitra and Dhanishta try to have the last word in a fight. Does it really matter who wins the fight if you lose the relationship? Be more accepting of each other’s views instead of proving the other wrong and avoid the power-play.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 18/36, which is 50%.

Shatabhisha-Chitra Nakshatras

Shatabhisha seem to be emotionally withdrawn, but they are attracted to Chitra and take the initiative to know them further. They feel comfortable being with someone who doesn’t focus too much on commitment and open up about their life to Chitra. This creates a relationship of love and trust.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 24/36, which is 69%.

Purva Bhadrapada-Chitra Nakshatras

Having an affair and thinking long-term are two very different things. Chitra’s ideals are not the same as Purva Bhadrapada’s and they would not like to be domesticated. Chitra can have a short-term sexual affair but nothing beyond. Chitra is too lazy and disinterested to take it further.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 16/36, which is 42%.

Uttara Bhadrapada-Chitra Nakshatras

Chitra’s worst relationship is with Uttara Bhadrapada. If they ever get together, they can be eternally unhappy. Uttara Bhadrapada can be slow and lazy in sex being represented by the buffalo yoni and Chitra hates how Uttara Bhadrapada makes matters worse by criticizing them. This relationship clearly has a lot of negativity.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 6/36, which is 17%.

Revati-Chitra Nakshatras

Revati idealizes love and Chitra idealizes sex. Sex needs to be fun, frolic and naughty for Chitra and for Revati, it has to involve emotions. Also, Revati feels committed to the person they love while Chitra doesn’t want to be committed to anyone. This makes the relationship hard even though it starts with a profound ‘idea of love’.

Total compatibility (guna) between you both is 15/36, which is 43%.
