  • Strategic and Tactical Planning


  • Applies to nakshatra of radical lagna AND nakshatra of Chandra. For emotional relationships, nakshatra of Chandra is more influential in determining compatibility and ease of interaction.

Psycho-socially compatible with Chitra * Tvastri

Nakshatra of Mangala * Mangala the Champion leads the conquest of new worlds. He is a pioneer, an inventor, and a sexually driven competitor who rages in vital warfare, runs faster, drills deeper, and pursues His quarry without restraint. Mangala-ruled folk join in a band of brothers.

Nakshatra of Chandra * Kuja and Chandra are mutual friends. * matrikaraka caretaking Chandra's rhythmic, parenting, routinized style provides a pleasing compliment to Mangala's direct-action warrior vigor.

Nakshatra of Surya * center-stage, sparklingly exceptional, brightly self-reflexive Surya finds a willing companion in dynamic, energized, boldly conquering Mangala. Together they surge with confidence, vitality, and force.

Nakshatra of Brihaspati * Guru and Kuja are mutual friends.. Brihaspati's ever-expanding realm of inclusive doctrinal understanding is well supported by Mangala's unstoppable weapons of penetrating power. The priests join the conquistadors, generating new worlds.

Psycho-socially neutral with Chitra * Tvastri

Nakshatra of Zukra = materialistic, accumulating, sensual Zukra is all about gracious, accommodating, feminine magnetic attraction. Penetrating, pursuing, promoting Mangala is all about propulsive masculine yang energy. The Zukra partner adjusts and the Mangala partner propels. Together they can move forward as a team, so long as the roles are clear.

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu * whether highly exciting (Rahu) or deeply observing (Ketu) the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles are potentially useful to Mangala's pursuit of the win. In particular, Kuja and Ketu share rulership of the Vrischika rashi, Positive relationships can support occult transformation, ascetic tantra, disaster response, or invasive healing. For other pursuits, discernment is required.

Psycho-socially uneasy with Chitra * Tvastri

Nakshatra of Shani * Scared Shanaicarya is intimidated by aggressive Mangala. Yet from Kuja's perspective, Professor Shani is a harmless old guy who poses no threat to Mangala's forward challenge. Shani partners need systematic order while Mangala partners often feel trapped by too many rules. Except for certain specialties such as engineering or military, there are relatively few environments in which this pairing can succeed

Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Chitra * Tvastri

Nakshatra of Budha * Budha can tolerate Mangala, But from Kuja's perspective, Professor Budha is a shatru-graha = arch-enemy. Active, competitive Mangala becomes profoundly annoyed by do-nothing, talking-head Budha. A Mangala-ruled nakshatra will generally use force to try to dominate a Budha-ruled nakshatra. Yet Budha just keeps on talking.

Shakti of the Chitra nakshatra

commentary by David Frawley,

"Twashtar desired, "May I gain a wonderful progeny."

One who makes the appropriate offering to Twashtar, to Chitra,

  • gains a wonderful progeny.

Twashtar is a form of the Creator, usually called Praja-pati.

Chitra therefore has great creative powers,

giving splendor, multiplicity and abundance."

Shakti of the Chitra Nakshatra

quotation from Dennis Harness

"14. Chitra: The Star of Opportunity

(Virgo 23 20'to Libra 06 40')

The symbol for the brilliant Chitra nakshatra is a bright jewel or pearl. Chitra translates as the "beautiful one" or "pretty pictures", which reflects its ability to arrange things nicely and in an artistic fashion. The deity is Tvashtar, the divine celestial architect .

The creator of Astro*Carto*Graphy, Jim Lewis, had his natal Moon placed here. Chitra natives are often successful artisan types.

The shakti is the ability to accumulate merit in this life".

Chitra has a rakshasa temperament with a primary motivation of kama, or desire.

The animal associated with this nakshatra is a female tiger which reveals the passionate, sensual nature experienced here.

Mars is the ruling planet of this asterism.

BPL Commentary on Chitra * Chaitra * Chithirai * Citra * Caitra * Chitta

Vismakarma * Tvastri * Azinech * Alaraph * Arista * Dana * Spica

Mangala-ruled Chaitra is considered to be an auspicious lagna for the male, but less auspicious for the female. (Note Shil Ponde's fierce distinctions below.)

  • According to the traditional commentaries rife as they can be with genderized prejudice, the Chaitra male = direct, successful, clever, and dexterous while the Chaitra female = "too much variegated" fickle with men and too much body-oriented, competitive, or selfish.

  • Chitra folk = distinguished planners, designers, strategists, architects.

  • In addition to the warlike competitiveness of Professor Mangala, the Chitra pada 1-2 located within Kanya can benefit from the calendaring, scheduling, logical argumentation and categorical organization of Budha.


Chitra may make manual drawings of their schemes. A chitra musician often writes a few musical notations indicating a harmonic arrangement. Chitra typically like to do several drafts of a plan, although in a pinch Chaitra strategist can sketch a thoughtful battle plan with a stick in the dirt.

For the Chitra pada 1-2 located within Kanya, engaging the hands is key to success. Here are found the instrumental musicians, the delicate machine operators, the design-and-sew experts in the garment industry, the technical fine-arts painters rendering a brilliant vision onto stretched canvas. To judge overall outcomes for this powerful nakshatra, assess the interaction within the nativity of the two adversaries, Budha (ruling Kanya) and Mangala (ruling Chaitra).

For the Chitra pada 3-4 located within Thula, consciously engaging the body's internal balancing systems (particularly the adrenal gland mechanism) is the key to sustained release of energy which can produce superb results in all fields of arrangement and design. To judge overall outcomes for this powerful nakshatra, assess the interaction within the nativity of the two neutrals, Shukra (ruling Thula) and Mangala (ruling Chaitra).

The hand-to-body connection is strong. Chitra folk are often skilled in martial arts involving sharp and decisive hand movement.

Famous military strategists

Direct (Kuja) but articulate (Budha) - depending on the constitution of Kuja and Budha in the kundali.

  • Others who handle drawings, maps, and plans include urban planners, city managers, advisers on complex environmental issues, designers of cityscapes and fantasy environments in literature and video games.

  • Other applications of their talent which engages direct-attack tactics in the context of carefully considered and detailed, highly organized and mapped pre-planning

For Chitra natives the condition of pioneering, direct, yang-energy, forward-pushing bhratru-karaka Mangala considerably affects the outcome.

Brother-figures, warriors, hunters, athletes, dancers, champions, challengers, inventors, explorers, dis-coverers, engineers, builders, drivers, drillers, diggers, exploders, aggressors, pursuers, and competitors may be especially influential.

BPL commentary on Chitra feminine nativity: the traditional language of "die four years later" should be updated to "may be divorced four years later"

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde.(1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 96.

"An expensive and luxurious person.

  • One who is fond of clothes and beautiful surroundings and revels in them.

  • She spends much money on jewels, perfumes, cosmetics

  • and her taste in these matters is expensive .

She likes to change costumes several times a day

  • and always look like an animated fashion plate .

Variety is the spice of life to this woman

  • and she will be inconstant and fickle in love affairs,

  • having many during her life and marrying often.

Many actresses, musicians, artists and opera singers have Chitra rising.

If she is born on the day before the New Moon, with this asterism rising,

  • she will have a husband who will die four years after her marriage to him

  • and she will never have any children.

If she is born with Chitra on the Rising Point on the day before the Full Moon ,

  • she will be immoral and promiscuous in her love affairs

  • and will support some of her lovers or spend money on them

  • and she will die in poverty."

BPL comment:

Chitra-pada-1 radical lagna puts

The Chitra-pada-1 nativity shows many of the typical Simha traits of glittering intelligence, enjoyment of center-stage roles, interest in politics and drama, and natural self-centered authority.

Vrishabha on the 10th-navamsha suggests that the Chitra-pada-1 nativity is typically professionally engaged with matters of Vrishabha such as visual arts, illustration, beautification, women's ornamentation and fashion, eyes-hair-face, mouth-teeth, flowers, perfumes and aromatic oils, sensual pleasures, speech, song and music, facial beauty, eyesight, banking and financial treasures, sweets and liquors, dairy foods and cattle.

Any graha located in Vrishabha 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The public career may be subject to revaluation and reassessment because Professor Zukra indicates historical, financial, and aesthetic value.

If, within the Simha swamsha, the nakshatra of the navamsha-lagna lies between 13:21 and 26:39 (Purvaphalguni) then the Zukra-ruled artistic, musical, beauty. and finance indicators are further strengthened.

Chitra-2 radical lagna puts

The Chitra-pada-2 nativity shows many of the typical Kanya traits of service-ministry and orientation to health care, unbalanced arrangements, and mitigation of pollution (cleaning).

Any graha located in Mithunaya 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The definition of the public career may be subject to re-describing and re-explaining because Professor Budha indicates chattering.

Chitra-2 produces a highly mentalized triple-Budha effect. The disposition of Budha becomes critically important for assessing both the personality and the career. Typically, the personality is so strongly identified with the career that public profile and personal profile tend to merge; one becomes one's work.

  • Berkshire Hathaway 1930- capitalist Warren Buffett is a distinguished businessman. His Budha-Kanya * uttama along with Budha-yuti-Zukra-nichha have made him a master undervalued stock-picker.

The Chitra-pada-4 nativity shows many of the typical Vrizchika traits of pursuit of hidden empowerments, sharp focus on the mysterious and confidential, drive to control, manipulative or intrusive nature, explosions and implosions, and energetic penetration of secrets.

The Chitra-pada-4 nativity is typically professional engaged with matters of Simha such as politics and political elections, theatre, literary creativity, performance arts, celebrity, royal entitlements, pageantry, poetry, ceremony, entertainments, ceremonial dance, children, romance, courtly love, games, gambling, expressions of genius, applause, brilliant confidence, solar power, bright lights, Divine Intelligence, self-knowledge, ego, individuality, independence, non-conformity, exceptionalism, uniqueness, center of attention, brilliant red things.

Any graha located in glittering Simha 10th-navamsha are definitive for professional portfolio and public service. The public career may be brightly visible because Professor Ravi indicates self-referential radiance.

There is potential for the development of a splendid healer and brilliant symbol of intelligent transformation. But there is an equal potential for the development of a political figure whose need for equitable agreements may weaken the effectiveness of leadership.
