Krithika Nakshatra’s first pada falls in Aries but three padas fall in Taurus sign ruled by Venus. Kritikia in general means flame or the one who cuts. Its symbol is axe or a burning flame. Other sharp cutting instruments who easily penetrates like blade, surgical operation blade, knife etc. also come under this Nakshtra. But this cutting element will relate more in Aries sign. When we shift to Taurus this Nakshtra indicates Lord Kartik, son of Lord Shiva. As Lord Kartik was looked after many mothers before reaching to his actual mother, Goddess Maa Parvati; this Nakshatra indicates extra care during childhood through many mother-like females. Normally, when a child is born, he is looked after by his mother. But in this case, the child was looked by many mother-like women at hidden and secretive place. After Lord Kartik grew old, he was appointed as the commander of the force of Devtas (Indra). He killed the demons and gave relief to Lord Indra.
