Padas or Quarters

The first pada falls on the Leo Navamsa which is ruled by the Sun. The focus on a lower level is on personal glamor. On a higher level, it is on perfection through self-abnegation. The pada has an intense power to keep secrets like the Sphinx (which combines the signs Virgo and Leo) which is the keeper of esoteric knowledge until mankind is prepared to hear them. Planets deal in a very concealed and non-apparent manner. Mercury, Mars, Rahu and the Sun occupy strong positions.

The second pada falls on the Virgo Navamsa which is ruled by Mercury. The highlights include maternity, duality, order and arrangement. Disciplined by nature, the pada completes what it begins. Rahu, mercury and Saturn are strongly placed here, although Saturn has a tendency to make things highly puritanical if it exerts a lower aspect.

The third pada falls on the Libra Navamsa which is ruled by Venus. The highlight on the material plane is on relationships, equilibrium and self-absorption. A very social and self-centered quarter it likes rising through the manipulation of its social circle. On another level, it likes promoting harmony and love in relationships. Planets love dazzling and flaunting. Saturn, Venus and Mercury are especially strong.

The fourth pada falls on the Scorpio Navamsa which is ruled by Mars. It reflects the mysterious and magical qualities of Chitra. Secrecy and passion are more here. Despite the non-acquisitive nature, planets make the material aspects very smooth for the natives. Saturn, Rahu, Ketu and Venus are strong.

Chitra – The Pearl

Chitra (23.20 Virgo-6.40 Libra) is represented in the astrological cosmos as a single star. It conveys the idea of universal craftsmanship through its ruling deity Twashtar. The primary objective of Chitra is to surmount illusion and maya.

Known to the Vedic astrologers as the nakshatra of prosperity, Chitra stands for the ‘big, bright, shining jewel’. Just as gemstones are created under extreme conditions of intense heat and pressure; the universe too needs to progress from its initial Big Bang which is emblematized by Chitra.

Behavioral Characteristics

Chitra is characterized with the essence of creation and conveys the intent of the English words, varied, multihued, brilliant, magic, art and visual delight. With little capability of sitting still, Chitra harmonizes with universal functions which in the negative context can become indulgent and self-serving.

Chitra natives are appearance conscious and complex, and hence it is related to maya, or glamour and illusiveness. Their aesthetic and architectural approach has a superficial desire to project external beauty and the need to harmonize their relationships. Chitra natives, on a material and spiritual plane, interplay projection and perception so much so that their dignified façade has a concealed inner layer.

Under the Virgo influence, Chitra tries to seek answers for illusions, while Chitra in the Libra zodiac relates more to the form and appearance of things. While Virgo is concerned with detail, Libra has more to do with relationship and seeking admiration. The ever present element of doubt and uncertainty give Chitra a weaker aspect which is why dubiousness looms over its need for appreciation and balance.

Chitra loves to understand the mechanism of things and hence to is related to the scientific, technological and creative fields. In fact, a shining example is the Japanese race. Chitra loves conjuring magic while the Libra influence gives the nakshatra the aesthetic appeal. On a higher plane, Virgo in Chitra creates the gadget, while Libra gives polish to the finished object, by understanding the universal mechanism and coating it with the illusive mantle.

Natives of the Chitra asterism have well-proportioned hairless bodies, with bright eyes and impressive manners. With a twinkle to their eyes, Chitra persons are able to naturally dazzle, which makes them attract the opposite sex. They can both sport and fake passion whenever required. Their penchant for dignity often conceals their errors. Causing some angst and disappointment, Chitra may both function on a higher and lower plane.

Like the oyster which displays irritation in producing the pearl, Chitra born individuals cannot easily strip themselves of maya and illusion. However, this pain itself is a manifestation of the chimera.
