Krittika

Krittika

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

Krittika (or the Cutter) is one of the Nakshatras (lunar mansions) of Vedic astrology. Agni, the god of fire, presides over this Nakshatra represented by an axe and located from Aries 26°10’ to Taurus 10°, ruled by the sun. This sign gives off the energy of being militaristic, and is a good time to be straightforward and aggressive; individuals may find themselves more motivated and dignified when the moon is in this area, while also being hard-headed or overly excitable.
