Chitra

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Chitra (Brilliant) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Depicted as a pearl or gem, this moon sign is located at Virgo 23°20’ to Libra 6°40’, with the world architect Twastri or Vishwarkarma presiding and the planet Mars ruling. Someone under this sign will tend to be more dignified and discriminating, yet quarrelsome and critical to an extent. The Hindu moon signs are also used “electionally” to decide when to do things.

—Pramela Thiagesan
