Krittika Nakshatra

Krittika Nakshatra comes in the Aries zodiac sign with first quarter/pada and with other three quarter/pada in the Taurus sign. The first quarter in Aries signifies that the native is duty bound and very strict with rule and regulation. But Krittika with other three quarter/padas in Taurus inclines the nature towards the wealth, desire and liberation wherever it comes in the birth chart.

Ruling Planet of Krittika Nakshatra (Graha Dveta): Sun - “Graha devta is the one who gives the ability to understand the nature of planet, so that we can work based on that planet in our chart.”  Based on the Vedic astrology, Sun has the ownership on the Krittika constellation.The native born in Krittika Nakshatra has the spiritual fire within them, which guides them towards the real aim and success in their life for which they have come to this life. Sun will give the native inbuilt warrior quality in Krittika Nakshatra with his pure spiritual fire. If the energy of Krittika Nakshatra is not channelized, the native will get distracted and wander in life which will not be good for him and the people around him too. The vitality will be very good for Krittika born Nakshatra.

Energy source of  Krittika Nakshatra (ADHI DEVTA): AGNI - ADHI DEVTA : “The Adhi devta is the one who gives the mental clarity about the planet and also through the adhi devta we can come in contact with the energy source related to that planet. AGNI is the god of transformation and the strongest medium to communicate with the celestial beings and the god. Native born in Krittika have sharp intelligence and they actively participate in the social welfare and can transform the thought of masses. Career in which the  creativity is required will be good for Krittika born people.

Presiding Deity of Krittika Nakshatra (Pratyadi Devta): Pratyadi Devta is the one who helps us to understand the function of the Nakshatra and planet in the birth chart. Kartikeya: the warrior god gives the energy to face the challenges like a great warrior. Nobody can win over these people.

Gender: Female - Native born in Krittika will go through the internal transformation and has the ability to nourish the life of others. Patience and benevolence is the key to get success for such people.

Dosha: KAPHA - The main function of KAPHA is to protect the body by holding the muscle, bone and fat together. Krittika born people need to take care of this dosa so that their vitality will get maintained. Chicken-Pox, measles, diabetes can affect the health of Krittika born people.

Guna: RAJAS - In Indian philosophy there are three Guna - Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas which are known as the three processes to make one successful the life. Krittika Nakshatra has the Rajas guna which gives the native quality of a royal warrior.

Element: EARTHY - Krittika born people have the inbuilt ability to get success in any circumstances. They apply their best knowledge to overcome the obstacles. Because of the earthy element, they believe in hard work and honesty.

Bird: - Birds are the highly spiritual creatures which have come to life to give us the message from universe and each Nakshatra has a particular bird symbol which shows us the energy related to that bird is residing within us related to that constellation/Nakshatra.

The quality of a warrior only comes when we know “how to balance the energy and balance will come only when we have a strong foundation”, and if we observe a peacock carefully, the spurs of the peacock give the strong foundation to defend themselves against predators. This is a great lesson from the peacock for Krittika Nakshatra. The most amazing thing is that the Presiding Deity of Krittika who is Kartikya also rides on a peacock, so the people born under the Krittika constellation have to make his foundation strong as these mythology symbols have secret message which gives an idea to succeed in life.

Classical Raga related to Krittika Nakshatra: Indian classical Raga play a vital role in astrology too. In the scriptures Ragas are not other than the celestial Demi Goddess the (Raag devta). Nowadays the Raga Therapy is being applied to cure the diseases as well. Based on the constellation where Moon is placed in your birth chart there are Ragas which can make your life more comfortable and better. Senavathi , Hanumathodi and Tanarupi are classical Ragas for the Krittika Nakshatra.

First letter for Krittika born people: “Like the classical Raga, the first  letter of the name also produces the vibration which is connected with the native.” Having the name with that letter creates harmony between the human and the universe so that the native gets all the happiness and success which is promised in his birth chart. It’s akin to your coming in the network coverage area of that nakshatra and thus getting a complete signal.
