Chitra Nakshatra in Astrology: Features, Padas, and Remedies

Astrologically speaking, people with Chitra Nakshatra birth signs are physically and sensually attractive, desire to beautify, work in the cosmetics industry, are well educated, analytical, have keen perception, are intuitive, communicative, have a gift for storytelling, enjoy being around people, approach others frequently, and enjoy being the centre of attention in social situations. One of the Tiryaka Mukhi Nakshatras in astrology is the Chitra Nakshatra (or the Nakshatras, which have their mouths curved). These Nakshatras are favourable for starting and finishing projects involving roads, dams, the expansion of metals, chariots, boats, etc.

Pearl as a symbol

A shiny gem or pearl is the Chitra Nakshatra’s emblem. A mother or mature lady is represented by the Moon, which is represented by the gemstone pearl. The pearl is a sign of the development of female organs during these two weeks of foetus development.

The Twastru is a deity

The Lord of Chitra Nakshatra is Twashtru. He is the God the crafter. He is the architect of homes in heaven. At will, he may alter his form. He is also the architect of life. He is referred to as the Lord of the womb and invoked when someone wants children. The twins’ father is him. The Lord of animals, grains, and seeds is Twashtru.

Chitra Nakshatra characteristics in astrology

  • The female tiger is the Chitra Nakshatra’s yoni animal.
  • It is possible to learn a lot about the characteristics of Chitra Nakshatra by studying a female tiger.
  • The first thing we discover about this stunning female tiger is that she hunts from 3:30 to 4:00, when everything is still but some animals are beginning to wake up.
  • A Chitra native will always wake up at this hour, or at the very least realise that they were asleep and are now up; they won’t necessarily do anything in particular, but some people may like midnight snacks as a result of this feature.
  • Tigers can see quite clearly in the dark, so both male and female tigers can see pretty well in the dark. This adaption to darkness allows tigers to hunt at night.
  • Natives of Chitra are far more adept at adjusting to darkness than other people, especially when the Sun or Moon are in this Nakshatra since they are the luminaries.
  • A tiger is a very cautious animal, and when it is hunting, it is so silent that you wouldn’t know what hit you.
  • She’d abruptly launch an attack at you.
  • Natives of Chitra are also quite quiet, but if they are pushed around a lot, they will suddenly lunge at you and attack. They won’t just attack for show; they will attack to damage you, so you should be careful the next time.
  • A tiger has bangle patches all over their body to deter predators, to signal their presence, and to warn people not to tamper with them.
  • A female tiger needs to consume 50% more food than she normally would to maintain her internal life.
  • They could eat all they wanted and still not feel satisfied. Like a mother bear, a mother tigress will devote all of her time to caring for her pups because they are vulnerable to being eaten by other animals.
  • When strangers approach their newborn children and attempt to cuddle and play with them, Chitra females will become much more hostile and protective.
  • When there are things in the house that could harm their child, they become even more paranoid.
  • The universe was created by the heavenly builder Tvastar/Vishwakarma.
  • He is cited as wanting progeny.
  • The illusion known as Maya, which supports this reality, was developed by Tvastar.
  • He also made the Vajra for Indra, the Chalice for Soma, the Sudarshan Chakra for Vishnu, the Trishul for Shiva, and several lokas as divine weapons for the gods.
  • He is the father of the three-headed Asura Viswarupa or Trishira, who was murdered by Indra and for whose wrath Tvastar fashioned the enormous dragon Vritra.
  • Sanjana, the wife of Surya and the mother of Yama and Yami, was also the child of Tvastr (the first mortals).
  • Tigers are this Nakshatra’s animal. It was supposedly Goddess Durga riding a tiger who vanquished the demon Mahishasur.
  • The monarch Raja Rajashekhara found and adopted Swami Ayyappa in the Pamba forest after the Mohini avatar of Vishnu and Lord Shiva gave birth to him. However, his wife did not want Manikandan (Ayyappa) to succeed to the throne and requested that he obtain tigress milk.
  • A tigress and her litter of cubs followed Lord Manikandan as he rode them back from the forest.
  • Later, he rose to prominence as the principal god of the Sabarimala shrine.
  • The word “Chitra” simply signifies a picture, whether it be one that was sketched or captured with a camera.
  • One of the first things we learn from the mythology is that people from Chitra are brilliant architects. They excel at creating blueprints for any project or plan, not only those who build actual buildings.
  • They excel at distilling a challenging issue into a clear, elegant answer.
  • Because Maya, the illusion, was created by Tavstar, Chitra residents are skilled magicians or illusionists.
  • Being an architect means you have a keen eye for historical structures and building requirements.
  • Natives of Chitra are constantly forced to cope with weapons of some form, like as guns, knives, or tools that aid in combat.
  • They will also create some weapons for a higher power.
  • As Tavstar had a tense connection with Indra, Chitra residents would also experience a lot of problems with their superiors and authorities.
  • The person who keeps track of all the souls’ accounts and records, Chitragupta, is also tied to Chitra.
  • Natives of Chitra enjoy keeping meticulous records in the manner of an accountant, or else they have a tendency to remember everything that occurs to them or that is done to them and to keep a strict account of everything so that each occurrence can have its appropriate payback period.
  • Maintaining records or accounts can also be equated with having a photographic memory, which prevents you from ever forgetting what is right and wrong.
  • A photographic memory may be a trait of natives whose ascendant lord, Mercury, Jupiter, or Moon is in this Nakshatra.
  • Stepmothers are a major issue for people from Chitra.
  • The queen of Raja Rajashekhara sought to covertly assassinate him by assigning him a task she knew he would fail and perish in because she never wanted another person’s offspring to rule the country.
  • But against all chances, the boy not only purchased the milk but also rode atop the tigress who delivered the milk.
  • This demonstrates that Chitra natives shouldn’t ever be tested because they always succeed and succeed handsomely, but they can also be duped by their mother or stepmother to the detriment of their siblings.
  • When this Nakshatra is either located in the ascendant or with Mars, Chitra locals also enjoy shaping their bodies to make them more attractive for photographs.
  • Yoga can be used to sculpt the body, which can then be aligned and used as a chariot to guide the mind in the right path. Sculpting the body does not necessarily entail bodybuilding.
  • This Nakshatra is ruled by Mars, who represents a competitive attitude, athleticism, competition, and putting up a strong fight.
  • Mars also rules the 8th house from Virgo, where Chitra begins, and it has been repeatedly noted that Chitra natives in Virgo would enjoy performing rituals, magic, and delving fearlessly into the occult.
  • On the Libra side, people born under the sign of Chitra are very fashionable and love to sculpt their bodies to impress others.
  • Sometimes you won’t find it in yogis or spiritualists, but you will in everyday folks.
  • Mars oversees the third house of sports, games, and media from the Virgo ascendant, and those with this astrological sign have a talent for both physical activity and mental games like chess and board games.
  • Shiny diamonds are this Nakshatra’s symbolic representation.
  • Although Chitra locals are sometimes found to have a passion for gems, gemology, or the jewellery industry, the meaning goes beyond the tangible gem.
  • It demonstrates the desire of people from Chitra to shine brightly in their lives, which they frequently do.
  • Because it is so difficult to locate someone who is similar to them, much as how a gem is made by intense pressure over millions of years, people view them as being unique in their profession.
  • spread from the 6’40” Libra (Tula) Rashi to the 23’20” Cancer (Kanya) Rashi.
  • Mercury (Buddha) and Venus are the Lords (Shukra). Chitra has gorgeous looks. The Lord of applied arts and practical aesthetics, Viswakarma is the great artist and artisan to the Gods.
  • Chitra Nakshatra’s characteristics include knowledge of art and the ability to paint, the gift of storytelling, and well-structured dialogue.
  • All of these professions are descended from the Chitra Nakshatra, including the painter, paints specialist, artist, musician, skilled surgeon, inventive writer, specialist in aromatic herbs, and dreamer of complicated designs.
  • Chitra is responsible for or has an impact on all artistic endeavours, including construction, engraving, embroidery, frame-making, beautiful needlework, the Taj Mahal, industrial engineering and skill, and the arrangement of machines and plants.
