from the Persian-Egyptian viewpoint

  • Tishtar * Tascheter is one of the four Chieftains.
  • Within the Pleiades, the star Tishtrya (Sirius) is called the Watcher of the Eastern sky.

ref: Davis, G. A. (1945). The so-called royal stars of Persia. Popular Astronomy, Vol. 53, p. 149. archived in https://adsabs.harvard.edu

According to Davis, there is no textual justification for including Aldebaran within the scope of "the watcher of the southern sky". Rather, he concludes that Sirius alone is the Eastern Quadrant Watcher.

  • Agni guards the south-east of any venue.

Agni is also in charge of all fire rituals, which should be conducted in the SE corner of the building or field.


COMPATIBILITY

  • Applies to nakshatra of indriya-lagna AND nakshatra of Chandra. For emotional relationships, nakshatra of Chandra is more influential on compatibility and ease of interaction.

Psycho-socially compatible with Krittika * Pleyades

Nakshatra of Surya * center-stage, sparklingly exceptional, brightly self-reflexive. These splendorous pairs bask in the glowing center of attention. They are often found in political, entertainment, gambling, creative, and celebrity environments.

Nakshatra of Chandra

matrikaraka caretaking Chandra's rhythmic, parenting, routinized style provides a companionable balance to pitrikaraka visionary Surya's confident, outgoing energy.

These pairs can thrive as parents following a traditional division of labor. As a couple, the Chandra personality takes the homefront while the Surya mate manages their public affairs.

Nakshatra of Brihaspati

Guru and Surya are mutual mitra-graha = best friends joined in a quest to enlighten the cosmos. Brihaspati expands the humanistic worldview and Surya brightens the intellect.

Nakshatra of Mangala

Kuja and Surya are mutual mitra-graha = best friends joined in a quest to energize the cosmos. Mangala leads the conquest of new worlds and Surya shines the bright light of divinity.


Psycho-socially neutral with Krittika * Pleyades

Nakshatra of Budha * mercantile, conversational, collaborative. Budha likes Surya more than Surya likes Budha, but this pair is generally neutral and there is no serious impedance to their interactions. Within relationships, Surya takes a more decisive role whereas Budha acts more like a interpreter, teammate, or sibling.


Psycho-socially uneasy with Krittika * Pleyades

Nakshatra of Rahu or Ketu * whether highly exciting [Rahu] or deeply observing [Ketu] the fascinating yet disruptive nodal styles are generally antithetical to Surya's radiating mission. The nodal shadows block Surya's ability to emanate individuality and willpower. These pairings follow incommensurable agendas.


Most catalytic (challenging) nakshatra for Krittika =

Nakshatra of Shukra = materialistic, accumulating, sensual Shukra is all about partnership, pairing, two-ness, cooperation, contract, sharing. Surya is all about oneness, nonpareil, incomparability, individuality, undivided attention. These agendas are deeply contradictory and often mutually resentful.

Nakshatra of Shani * materialistic, structuring, socially conformist Shani is in perpetual animosity with brilliantly creative, individualistic, regal divine Surya. From Ravi's perspective, dark and punitive Shani is a deeply adversarial mutual arch-enemy * ati-shatru-graha.

QUOTATION from Dennis Harness, The Nakshatras: The Lunar Mansions of Vedic Astrology


" The primordial flame is the primary symbol of this nakshatra, representing purification by the sacred fire (yagna).

  • The ruling planet is the Sun with Agni, the God of Fire, as the residing deity.

  • The shakti of this lunar mansion is 'the power to burn away the negativity to get to the truth' .

  • According to the Atharva Veda, Krittika is the first nakshatra reflecting the stars rising at the spring vernal equinox during the height of the Indus Valley civilization (2720-1760 BCE.)

  • Interestingly, the Moon is exalted in this powerful nakshatra.

  • It has a rakshasa, or demon nature, with a primary motivation of kama or desire.

The other symbol for this asterism is a razor, reflecting the cutting activity of this nakshatra, which can heal or destroy."

Krittika Nakshatra

commentary of David Frawley, Fruits of Worshipping Each Nakshatra

" Agni desired, "May I be the eater of food for the Gods."

One who offers to Agni and Krittika the appropriate offering becomes an eater of food for mortals.

  • Agni as fire both cooks and digests food.

Krittika provides nourishment and the power to digest it as well.

Those born under it like to provide for others in this way."

Krittika Nakshatra

BPL COMMENTARY


Ravi-ruled Krittika is often very successful in public life, but moody in private life.

  • Like day and night.

Krittika dynamism in the Mesha portion arises from Surya-Mangala planetary friendship

  • Nakshatra-pati Surya and rashi-pati Mangala are best-friends

Krittika success in the Vrishabha portion is impeded by their mutual-enemies relationship.

  • Nakshatra-pati Surya and rashi-pati Shukra do not like each other.

Krittika Nakshatra = masculine nativity

Surya-ruled Krittika is considered an auspicious placement for menfolk whose instinct for public attention thrives in the self-assertive (boastful) center-stage masculine auspice of Lord Ravi.

  • Politics, royal entitlements, radiance, glamour, throne-room center stage.

  • These men have large auras and they demand attention. Often much admired by other men, and a"man's man" indeed.

  • Splendid for politics in both indriya-lagna or Chandra-lagna

Krittika Nakshatra = feminine nativity

She makes her own CHOICEs

lect-lig-lege-league = CHOOSe

  • inter LIG ence * intelligence
  • ex LIG ible * eligible
  • co LEAGUE * colleague
  • co LEGE * college
  • inter LECT ual * intellectual
  • ex LECT ion * election
  • se LECT ion * selection
  • co LECT ion * collection

The Surya-ruled Krittika woman makes her OWN CHOICES.

Thus the Mesha-ruled pada-1 in particular is considered a less benevolent placement for Feminine Nativities whose purportedly natural calm cool harmony-seeking, adjusting, accommodating Shukra nature gets dried and burnt in the self-assertive, intellectual, electional terrain of Professor Surya.

Tendency to self-interrupt the balance-seeking harmony of Shukra with brilliant flashes of individual intelligence, independent opinion, celebrity, fashion and romance.

Krittika women are often strikingly intellectual [Surya] and rather prone to outbursts of incisively critical thinking. They thrive in the politico-theatrical environment.

As the famed Hollywood dramatist Katherine Hepburn (never married, much romanced) publically said: " If you want to sacrifice the admiration of many men for the criticism of one, go ahead, get married."

Krittika wives are often very bright and typically brighter than their husbands. Many a Krittika woman has shaped the career of the political men [Surya] in her life. Krittika women resemble their fathers.

Depending on the patron of the [10th navamsha] , the career role might be defined as detailed costume and makeup artist [Kanya] dancer [Mesha] dance instructor for the film cast (Mithuna) or the glamorous leading-lady songstress (Vrishabha) - and many more options. All are expressions of Krittika affinity for bright lights and the brilliant personal aura that characterizes the independent and queenly Krittika woman.

Glitterati * Courtly Fashions * Celebrity Roles

Thrive in the glow of public attention . Royal Surya favors the top courtly fashions no matter rank or salary. Even the lowest paid Krittika hair-stylist may be driving an expensive celebrity-style car and even the 60-something Krittika will wear the latest elegant fashion. If thin is in, she is thin. When voluptuous is the courtly standard, she strives for curves.

Not usually satisfied simply by wifely roles in marriage due to their brilliantly solipsistic, independent point of view. Typically, a career woman seeking a dramatic expression. If her personal intelligence is suppressed by political managers, her face develops a glassy-eyed stare. Like Uttara-phalguni and Uttarāṣāḍha women, the Krittika woman seeks center-stage recognition.

Kṛttikā Nakshatra

  • Politics

  • Theatre

  • Intelligence, brilliance, charisma, genius

  • Center-stage roles

  • Gambling, Gamesmanship

  • Speculative Ventures

  • Courtly Admirers and Entitlements


Like its Surya-ruled sisters Nakshatra = Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman and Uttarāṣāḍha - Vaishva, Krittika= vigorously active, creative, charismatic, wants a center-stage role, likes heat, likes brilliance, and applause-seeking.

Excellent placement for a career politician.

Political personalities from the Krittika + Uttara-phalguni + Uttarāṣāḍha trine include:

Krittika * Pleiades

Navamsha Krittika lagna [svamsha]

Self-centered, self-important, radiant, effusive. May be ruthless and self-righteous

Independent, self-important, masculine graha Surya owns Krittika Nakshatra . Professor Surya is a natural friend of masculine, competition-seeking Mangala but a natural enemy of feminine, harmony-loving Shukra.

  • Therefore, Krittika placements give benefit for masculine nativity but are less naturally comfortable for Feminine Nativities. (See Shil Ponde's comment below)

The portion of Krittika Nakshatra which occupies Urisha rashi is somewhat easier for Feminine Nativities. Yet even in the Vrishabha portion, the natural animosity between Shukra and Surya creates a difficult psycho-emotional environment for most women.

Women can also be very successful in public life with Krittika placements. For example, the former mayor of San Francisco and very influential USA Senator Dianne Feinstein .

For women, it helps to acknowledge that their path may be long and difficult, demanding constant interaction with self-important men, and feeling frustrated with the deficiency of harmony-seeking energy within the predominantly male communities within which a Surya-ruled Krittika female will live and work. Senator Feinstein, as an example of this success, developed tremendous skill in dealing with self-aggrandizing male politicians, and she also enjoyed the lifelong support of Surya characters such as her father, her husband, and her son.

Chandra in Kṛttikā - Pleyades

emotionally needs constant praise and positive attention .

Supremely Self-confident whether one is right or wrong.

Sharply Decisive whether one has enough skill to decide or not.

Take-charge personality whether one can lead or not.

Krittika affinity to cut and criticize,

in the kitchen = skillful handling of sharp blades and knives.

  • Similarly very effective in political criticism. Skilled at cutting jobs such a butchering, but not so easy in interpersonal relationships where criticism is not very helpful. (Chandra in Krittika may have a habit of butchering their intimate relationships.)

  • Good in the job, loves the attention given to a high performance career, wants to be in the limelight.

Very happy and productive when the nourishing attention and applause is provided; cranky and dissatisfied in environments wherein their bright light cannot shine.

  • Likes high heat, cooking, and theatre. Often a very sexual person, not at the animal level but in their need to call attention to their divine body.

  • Admires the father, despite the public reality that the father may have some serious flaws regarding an ego-membrane disorder.

BPL COMMENTARY

Kṛttikā - Pleyades - Agneya * Professor Surya


Kṛttikā pada-1 = 26:40 until 30:00 Mesha- Arya * = (5th, Surya)

Acts with political and theatrical genius. Enormously self-confident and proud. A winner; first-arriver; a pioneer. Often a politician with military or athletic qualities. If Surya is strong, may be a brilliant entertainer with royal entitlements and sparkle. Charisma manifests according to natal characteristics of Surya.


Krittika pada-2-3-4 * 00:00 until 10:00 Vrzava

= (4th, Surya)

Krittika pada 2-3-4 = the family's financial well-being is promoted via power of both the father and the native. Confident acquisition of properties; deeply patriotic; often a local mercantilist and landowner.

Keeps and conserves the royal entitlements of an ethnic or cultural people. Often an owner of lands and vehicles, a cultivator, and a defender of political rights. Father often a land-owner. Rights and powers manifest according to natal characteristics of Surya.

Rising Nakshatra

Feminine Nativity

Kṛttikā - Pleyades

Agneya - Riksya - Karthika - Alcyone


BPL COMMENTARY

For Krittika births of a feminine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the splendidly Surya-ruled paradigm of Riksya, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of the Pleyades. Their purpose is confidence-raising and light-bringing in creative pursuit of values fulfillment.


Radiant Certainty

Agneya-born ladies are often found in politics, in gambling and speculation, or in creative finance.. Riksya-born are brightly idealistic + self-directed seekers of attention.

Mesha pada 1 represents nakshatra-pati Surya's empowerment in romance and celebrity entitlements. In the rashi of champion Mangala, sparkling Surya asserts radiant genius.

Typically pada 1 are dramatists, politicians, royalty, celebrity, creative artists, and uniquely charismatic figures. Feminine births in pada-1 are often distinguished by an athletic figure and personal independence

[Vrishabha - Urisha] -pada-2-3-4 express the tension between two-party bargainer Shukra versus one-party autocratic singular nakshatra-pati Surya. Often the intelligence of pada 2-3-4 is focused into the Values-fulfilling sectors of uniquely central, creative roles.

They often serve as independent evaluators within the artistic and financial worlds, in the music industry, dealing with wines + perfumes, and in all aspects of beauty. Depending on [Yogakaraka] Shani ruler of 9+10, the Vrishabha pada of Krittika have a stronger propensity toward organizational leadership positions.

Themes of valuation, individual intelligence, creativity, and confidence may contextualize Krittika's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Kṛttikā - Pleyades

QUOTATION from Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 91


" ... a thin and quite tall woman.

One with a weak constitution and rather given to chronic ailments:

  • particularly coughs, colds, and asthma.

A tendency to be morbid and depressed

  • and yet easily excited

  • as the result of a very nervous temperament .

She will no doubt live by herself away from her family,

  • as she prefers to indulge her own whims and wishes

  • and will brook no interference with her desires.

She has a very jealous disposition

and is difficult to please." [end quote]


BPL note: the thin/tall/away-from-family profile for Krittika ladies can be altered by drishti from plump/petite/parenting graha.
