Krittika Pada-1 in Mesha has a group of overlords who are highly compatible with Surya:
Krittika Pada 2-3-4 has a different rashi overlord. Pada 2-3-4 tend to feel more conflict emotionally because of the natural animosity between hot self-centric Surya versus cool partnership-oriented Zukra.
Surya-ruled Krittika is often radiantly successful in public life, and cyclically moody in private life.
A brilliant cutter, incisive, knife-wielding, cauterizing. Needs to have tapas , fire and war .
Natural political inclination and would do well in institutional leadership roles that need a brightly regal, central figure in the guise of an entitled parent-protector. A guardian of the Old Ways (Chandra) Yet, a warrior for political power as well.
• Affinity for fire and triumph. Cooking and cutting can be favorite habitual activities. Often a gifted chef who enjoys making meals for small groups of friends and family.
In the Mesha portion, Krittika's dynamic performance enthusiasm arises from the Jyotisha rule that says:
Krittika's success in the Vrishabha - Urisha portion is limited by the Jyotisha rule that says:
Krittika-Chandra needs exposure to the Sunlight. One needs to be"out there" on center stage, in the light, meeting with people, discussing brilliant ideas, getting attention, displaying brilliance like a Royal, celebrating, being a celebrity, royally officiating ceremonies, beaming, radiating, reciting poetry and singing; channeling inspiration, truth, and divine love.
The portion of Krittika Nakshatra which occupies Vrishabha rashi is somewhat easier for Feminine Nativities. Yet even in the Vrishabha portion, the natural animosity between Zukra and Surya creates a difficult psycho-emotional environment for most women.
Women may struggle to be successful in public life with Krittika placements
Successful examples =
Rather than predict defeat (which is inaccurate because some do succeed brilliantly) it helps to acknowledge that the Krittika path for Feminine Nativities may be long and emotionally difficult, with numerous setbacks, frequent interactions with self-important men, and feeling frustrated with the deficiency of harmony-seeking energy within the predominantly male communities within which a Surya-ruled Krittika female may often live and work.
PraiseLike its Surya-ruled sibling-Nakshatra Chandra in Uttaraphalguni-Aryaman and Chandra in Uttarazadha-Vaizva, Chandra in Krittika has a deep emotional need to receive constant, effusive praise. (Like the effusive rays of the Sun upon one's countenance.)
Without a steady stream of political successes or prize-winning celebrity accomplishments, the Chandra-Krittika native can fall into a deep emotional depression. Eating Food, Need for Nourishment

Skilled at cutting jobs such a butchering , but not so easy in interpersonal relationships where criticism is not very helpful. Chandra in Krittika may have a habit of butchering their intimate relationships.
Challenge to the psychic mirroring function o f intimate relationships

Feels a deep sense of security and belonging
When cooking and eating , whether the food is physical, emotional, psychological, social, financial, mental, or spiritual. (, any type of nourishment whether material or conceptual.)
the native will establish the deepest emotional bond with one who cuts and cooks alongside or shares the act of nourishment . This person may be the co-eater, the co-drinker, the fire-maintainer, or the cooperating sensual celebrant in any setting.
Spiritual director of this section of the path:
Trauma profile:"starvation"= starved for attention
Krittika'spsycho-emotional condition initiates in the current life when the mother does not sufficiently nurture her infant. Although she may care for the child publicly, and she may live her entire life in firm denial of the fact, it is possible that the mother did not want the child.
The child knows this in utero, and the child feels her disinterest after birth in the form of insufficient holding, inadequate access to the breast, and the mother being too busy with distractions such as other children, studies, or work.
The child compensates by working extra hard to gain the mother's attention, and the child becomes a"praise junkie" trying harder and harder to gainful and lasting approval .
Krittika natives are particularly prone to self-medication with alcohol because of the liquid-feeding experience mixed with the mind-numbing drug that dumbs down his internal self-criticism.
Criticism of others is also his weapon, used to destroy others who may be competing for the praising attention he so desperately craves.
Often very high achievers due to their charismatic [Surya] and competitive [Kuja] nature.
In public, they praise their mothers to the sky.
In private, Krittika natives resent their mothers deeply, and criticize their feminine partners in work and marriage for weakness, insufficient attention, and lack of interest in the Krittika native's success.
In marriage, the male Krittika in particular may fear that the spouse will not nourish him or will drive him into a state of sensual-emotional starvation. Krittika seeks attention elsewhere and will tend to stray.

psychic mirroring function o f intimate relationships
In order to mirror one's own subconscious emotional patterns, one attracts a core partner who expresses Krittika behavior. Under emotional stress in relationships, the native with navamsha Chandra in Krittika can experience anxiety reactions that manifest as compulsive self-criticism and obsessive programs of purifying fault-eradication.
The partner needs a clear and rigid path toward perfection. Partner is a sharp, principled, intolerant critic with strong ethical and aesthetic commitments.
Partner may be ruthless in weeding out inappropriate or undesirable company, so that the native cannot easily enjoy diverse friendships while also satisfying the partner's rules. Partner may be highly respected in their technical field esp. any form of cutting: "cutting out", "cutting up", "cutting away".
