The 14th Nakshatra: CHITRA.
The four quarters are ruled by:
Sūrya (Sun) - the 1st quarter,
Buddha (Mercury) - the 2nd quarter,
Shukra (Venus) - the 3rd quarter,
and Mangala (Mars) - the 4th quarter.
Other aspects of this Nakshatra:
Purushardha (life's vector or motivation) is Kama.
Totem animal is Tiger (female).
Symbol - a pearl.
Devata (Deity) - Tvashtar.
Dosha - Pitta.
This is the 14th
Nakshatra of zodiac, ruled by the fiery planet Mangala (Mars). It spans from 26°40' in Kanya (Virgo) to 6°40' in Tula (Libra). Thus the first two quarters of this Nakshatra fall in
the sign Kanya (Virgo) while the last two quarters fall in the sign Tula (Libra).
Chitra born enjoy
good health and always appear much younger than their actual age. They may
appear rather thin and weak, but they have excellent stamina and muscle power.
These people are gifted with power of intuition, a quality that is a must for
any astrologer. Hence these people are suitable for any profession that
requires forecasting over a longer period.
When the Mangala is
strong in the natal chart, a Chitra born will be rather insensitive to the
feelings of other. It is not that he wants to hurt others through his behavior,
but this characteristic will be an integral part of his nature.
These people do
not like to be subdued by others. Hence, they have to face opposition in every
walk of life. A strong Mangala in this case will give the necessary courage to the
native to take on the world. But a weak Mangala will only generate hatred for
those who oppose the native.
Because they have
to face the ire of world for having their own say, they are considerate towards
the people who are in the same situation and like to help these people.
suffer from ailments of kidney. Possibility of brain fever also can not be
ruled out, especially when either of Mangala or Sūrya (Sun) is placed in Mesha (Aries).
features: He has a lean body. He can be recognized or identified even from a crowd
of hundreds of people through his magnificent dealings and expressions.
and general events: He is very very intelligent and peace loving. He will not hesitate to go
to any extreme for the sake of selfish benefits. There is a hidden inherent
Godly gift for this Nakshatra born i.e., the ideas or opinions or advice
expressed by him would initially appear to be a sheer nonsense but later on the
same idea or opinion or advice will only prevail upon. There is also an
inherent gift of intuition. Hence he is the type of person who is very much fit
for the astrological profession where intuition is very much needed.
In some cases, it is
also noticed that the native quite often see a lot of dreams which are actually
becoming true. This would indirectly indicate that a divine power is
automatically installed in the brain of Chitra born.
He is the type of
person who is not bothered about the sentiments of others nor is he selfish to
others. But in spite of this adamant attitude his dealings with the poorer
section of the society will be very cordial and full of kindness. Quite often
he is mistaken by others that he is very rude and stingy. He has a tendency of
giving reply on any matter without forethought and he wakes up at the eleventh
hour and try to rectify his utterances when it is too late.
He has to confront
his enemies at every step but he is capable of escaping any conspiracy. He has
soft corner for the down trodden people and he devotes his time and energy for
the uplift of this section of the society. But one of the hidden factors is
that initially his approach to the down trodden will be without any selfish
motive, which later on culminates into selfish motive.
sources of earnings / profession: Obstacles in the life is not a hurdle for the
advancement for him. He can overtake all these hurdles with his courage and
hard work. He will not be leading a comfortable life up to the age of 32 years.
Period between 33 years and 54 years of age will be his golden period.
One of the redeeming
features of Chitra born is that he gets help and reward from unexpected quarters
without putting much efforts. From several horoscopes examined by me, it is
seen that the age of 22, 27, 30, 36, 39, 43 and 48 years of age will be very
bad in all respect. The native may earn as a sculptor or mechanic or as a
factory employee or the native will be in the political arena or the native may
be be an engineer or a textile technologist.
on the one hand he sincerely loves his co-borns, and parents, on the other hand
he suspects the activities of the co-borns and parents. Chitra born cannot, in
most of the cases enjoy the benefit, love and affection from his father. It is
also noticed that the father of the native leads a separated life. In any case,
he has a life away from his father. One of the points noticed is that his
father in spite of separation from the native have some distinct identity of
his own i.e., will be famous or known in a particular field. He is more
attached to his mother and enjoy benefits from the maternal side.
There is a saying
that the Chitra born cannot stay in the house where he is born. Either the
native will leave the house and settle down somewhere else or the house he is
born itself will be sold or destroyed. In other words, he will be settling down
in an unknown and distant place away from his native house.
Normally he cannot
enjoy a happy married life. When we say a happy married life, while the
marriage will be stable the relationship between the couples will not be
cordial leading to frequent friction on small matters. He has to shoulder lot
of responsibilities and face lot of criticisms throughout his life.
5. Health: Inflammation of kidney and
bladder, brain fever, diseases connected with worms. Abdominal tumors or
appendicitis also have been noticed.
Females born in this
Nakshatra will also equally enjoy the same results mentioned above for the male
natives, except that the females are more subjected to the hands of unlucky
features: She has a beautiful envious body. She will be tall with equally matched
fleshy body. While she has natural long hair, she in the modern world will have
a cut hair.
and general events: Her eagerness for excess of freedom and unrespectable behavior makes
problems still complicated. She is proud for no merits. A veracious and sinful,
laziness. She will have very few friends. Commits sinful deeds.
sources of earnings / profession: She will have her education in science subjects. She
may be a nurse or a model or a film actress. If planets are not well or
moderately placed, she may be employed in agricultural field.
Family life: Unless the horoscope of a female native is compared
properly there is likelihood of death of the partner, divorce or complete
absence of pleasure from the husband. In some cases, childlessness is also
noticed. She is advised to observe the remedial measures mentioned at the end
of this mentioned at the end of this chapter for a happy existence.
