Krittika is symbolized by an axe and ruled by the Sun. People born in this nakshatra imbibe some of the qualities of Lord Kartikeya.

Krittika Constellation Compatibility with Other Constellations

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

Krittika-Ashwini Nakshatras

What brings you and Krittika together is sex… lots of sex. The sexual fulfilment in this relationship is at par, however, when it comes to a full-fledged relationship, responsibility and ownership of the relationship might be missing. Ashwini does not necessarily know how to love Krittika, who are sometimes diffident to Ashwini. What Ashwini instead does is, chase. Ashwini is the predator; therefore, it makes the chasing seem fun. But to love and nourish Krittika is an entirely different thing. However, it seems good as long as it lasts, with ‘no strings attached’.

Temperamental compatibility (guna) between you both is 22/36 which is a good 61%.

Krittika-Bharani Nakshatras

Bharani is a sensuous constellation, and Krittika is diffident. Krittika might wonder why someone like Bharani is interested in you, in fact those around Krittika may be apprehensive as well. Bharani instinctively sees through Krittika’s needs and desires, and it likes what it sees. They both can make a beautiful relationship on all levels. They are a bit possessive, but Krittika loves Bharani and it helps them through it.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 29/36, which is 80%.

Krittika-Krithika Nakshatras

Being from the same constellation makes them completely similar. Krittika understands that they have met someone who shares the same kind of interests. However, it is for the same reasons that you would part as well. Too much similarity can bring boredom and dullness in the relationship. A deliberate effort will have to be made too often to keep the spark alive.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 22/36, which is 63%.

Krittika-Rohini Nakshatras

If there’s a word which defines both seduction and shamelessly emotional, its Rohini. Rohini is a cry-baby and can get annoying at times. Krittika understands their vulnerability and can be protective as well but Rohini’s reasons for being emotional can put them off. They also have unrealistic standards of love. Rohini’s possessiveness can make Krittika want to take a break.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 24/36, which is 66%.

Krittika-Mrigashirsha Nakshatras

Krittika and Mrigashira is the kind of high-school/college couple who has a crush on each other but tries to impress the other with their intelligence, mostly vocally. They will sit and have an amusing debate over topics for hours making the audience swooned. But neither will make the first move and annoy their friends regarding this in the process. Waiting does make things sweeter, but sometimes too much waiting isn’t the best relationship idea.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 24/36, which is 66%.

Krittika-Ardra Nakshatras

There is a potential for an unconventional relationship which can make it beautiful considering it doesn’t go by a rule-book. However, Krittika’s need for conventionalism and mistrust that can occur can make the relationship sour.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 19/36, which is 52%.

Krittika-Punarvasu Nakshatras

Not everything which brings them together is also best for long term. Krittika is possessive of Punarvasu as it travels and gains its wisdom and knowledge. Punarvasu is passionate about the subjects they explore, and they generally learn through people and places. This wisdom and thirst attracts Krittika, but being possessive of Punarvasu can also pull them apart. Learn to trust as Punarvasu are one of the most upright and honest individuals.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 24/36, which is 67%.

Krittika-Pushya Nakshatras

Pushya is your best sexual partner in terms of making you feel secure and loved while helping you out of your sexual diffidence.

Nothing is too sleazy; nothing is too boring. Pushya also loves them through every phase of life truly which makes Krittika secure in loving them back.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 25/36, which is 69%.

Krittika-Ashlesha Nakshatras

Ashlesha are mystical and crafty. They make Krittika come out of their sexual diffidence and be more explorative. Soon after, mistrust and jealousy get in the picture.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 20/36, which is 52%.

Krittika-Magha Nakshatras

Trust, respect and real love is the biggest question mark in this relationship. They both believe in the façade they see of each other on the surface.

Krittika-Hasta Nakshatras

Hasta is a constellation which is needy by nature. They need to be loved and pampered by everyone. It does not spoil them; it just makes them feel less vulnerable.

Sharing their love with someone as empathetic, emotional and vulnerable as Hasta will not make them small. It will only build the relationship.

Temperamental match (guna), between you both is a 21/36, which is 60%.

Krittika-Chitra Nakshatras

Krittika’s over-analyzing nature in the wrong direction will displease them both in the long run.
