Krittica Nakshatra Padas:

First pada 

The first quarter or pada of the asterism lands in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius Navamsa. The pada is profoundly altruistic, compassionate and moralistic. A daredevil nature makes them a part of military pursuits. That’s why they call it the explorer. Planets express a lot of energy, endurance and determination, with especially prominent planets Sun, Ketu, Jupiter and Mars.

Second pada 

The second pada falls within the Saturn-ruled Capricorn Navamsa. The pada has a deep sense of ethics, but it is more material than metaphysical. It also communicates its spirituality through matter. The purpose lies in the arrangement of matter to establish a maternal and loving atmosphere. In its heights Krittika feels her maternal elements here. Influenced by this pada, natives provide sustenance when needed most. In this point the Moon is exalted in its heights. Mars and Saturn are likewise exalted. The location of Mars here, however, depends more on having nourishment than on supplying it.

Third pada 

The third pada lands in the Saturn-ruled Navamsa Aquarius. It is humanitarian and altruistic, combining visions of the future with primitive knowledge of the principles. The stress is on the tenth house’s significances, such as the individual’s collective duty. The quarter encourages all manner of study, and is thus known as the zodiac’s university symbol. As in Aquarius no planets are diminished, they work effectively in their specific domains.

Fourth pada

The fourth pada rests upon the Jupiter-ruled Pisces Navamsa. This pada’s specialty is that it can determine its sensibility on the plane of the material. It contributes to a compassionate and happy way of grouping work of all kinds. Thus in group situations planets are more creative. Being a pada of Pushkara Navamsa all planets will produce positive results here. Ketu, Venus, and Jupiter can make maximum use of this pada’s energies, even though Mercury finds no prominence.
