Mangala endures a hostile relationship with Budha.

Mangala enjoys a neutral and often mated relationship with Shukra.

In all four pada, chitra-Chandra is combative and dominating, conquesting and pursuing, lively and sporting -- Yet, also scholarly and capable of penetrating [Kuja] thought [Budha].

Often a capable writer on contentious topics, and emotionally sensitive to aggressive or innovative roles:

Yet Chandra's needs are different in the two portions, Kanya pada * Step 1-2 vs. Thula pada * Step 3-4.

In logical Kanya, chitra-Chandra needs to win the argument and pursue the plan. For success, both Professor Budha and Professor Mangala should be strong.

In diplomatic Tula, chitra-Chandra needs to dominate the partnership in the role of the architect of the alliance.

Then Chitra-Chandra pursues the agreement

Strategic and tactical pursuit; competitive dominant instinct; the arts of war

needs to Dominate through strategy and tactic in complexly structured competitive wars

in Kanya, seeks to win the argument

in Tula, seeks enrichment via money, jewels, ornaments e.g. luxury automobiles [Shukra]

Lord Tvastr formed the bodies of humans and animals.

  • Chitra destroys enemies and enriches friends

Chitra are competitively ambitious " alpha" warrior types.

Even when Chitra is born with high levels of analytical intelligence - often present in the Kanya portion - Chandra-Chitra remains a physically straightforward person who understands blood-competition at the mundane and muscular battlefield level.

[Chitra-Chandra] May appear crude or primitive because of their core intuition being so fleshly. However, the flesh is the undeniable basis of human life, and one who recognizes that base reality will be effective in dealings . Aggression by weapon (or realistic threat of it) is particularly the skill of Chitra.

Blessed by Lord Tvastri, the Chaitra native possess intuition [Chandra] for design of excellent strategic plans .

  • Emotionally oriented to winning the competition (often a political election) and obtaining the jeweled prize.

If not well supported, the emotional instinct to win may involve appropriations of the treasury of others.

Chitra is the architectonic jewel of great price.

This native wants to know how it all fits together (the facets of the jewel) and then to USE one's knowledge [Budha] for personal gain.

Mangala-ruled Chitra's method = movement.

Mangala-ruled Chitra's goal = strategic (long-term) and tactical (short-term) positioning for competitive advantage :

The competitively advantaged position is usually pursued through control of material assets, in combination with a high decision-making position of some type.

Particularly in the Budha-ruled Kanya portions, chaitra-Chandra is a magnificent planner.

Financial and political corruption does not offend this native; since the baser instincts of human nature are simply more facets of the jewel.

Pursues ones single goal with a high sense of entitlement, reflecting a noble and cut-throat style of practicing the arts of war.

  • La Pucelle d'Orléans 1412-1431 St. Jeanne d'Arc [ceremonial-displaying Chitra-1]

Spiritual director of this section of the Learning Pathway

  • Tvashtr Vishvakarma = the celestial architect (devashilpi)

Architecturally minded genius, able to mount great schemes and plans.

  • Strategically minded.

Charming conversationalists and entertainers, especially in the Budha-ruled pada.

Famed for insight, artistic ability, and for their power to work in hot-pressure environments. Masters of illusion.

Favors jewels and gems (formed in hot-pressure) especially in the Shukra-ruled pada.

  • Deep emotional need to dominate through charm.


Navamsha Moon in Chitra - Spica

psychic mirroring function of intimate relationships


  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx + [nīcha] Surya + Guru


In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Chitra behavior.

The partner of Chandra-Chitra needs evidence of artistic craft to stabilize their own emotional life. They are literary writers; song-writers and instrument-playing musicians; painter sculptors and workers in glass, artisans and craftspeople of every fashion. They seek to evoke articulated balance and in a tangible form.

  • Das Kapital 1818-1883 economics Karl Marx attracted a cultured, literary partner, the baroness Ms. Jenny von Westphalen. In addition to bearing and raising seven children, Jenny was a literary scholar in the theatrical genre, specializing in Shakespeare.

Under emotional stress within relationships, the Chandra-Chitra partner can experience deep anxiety reactions that manifest as compulsive crafting-and-re-crafting of a piece of artisanal production. Stress behaviors might include for example writing and re-writing a poem-song-story, or painting-and-re-painting an artistic picture ... or even cleaning and re-cleaning a weapon.
