Rahu transits in Krittika Nakshatra : 05 Sep 2021 to 14 June 2022

As per mean node calculations Rahu will be transiting in Krittika Nakshatra on 5th October 2021.
Krittika is spread over Aries and Taurus both. The first Charan or Pada falls in Aries and three are in Taurus. Since Rahu moves in backward motion, Rahu will enter Krittika through the 4th Pada and then move up to the 2nd Pada in Taurus and then will enter the first Pada of Krittika in Aries. Rahu is going to be in the Taurus side of Krittika from 5th October 2021 to 12 April 2022. Then from 12 April 2022 to 14 June 2022 Rahu will be in the Aries side of Krittika.

Sun rules Krittika Nakshatra and Agni or the fire God is the Deity, but Krittika’s nature is Rakshas, i.e. demonic nature. The nakshatra signifies motivation for desire fulfilment. If you see the symbol of Krittika, it is a sharp blade or flame. So from all angles Krittika exudes the energy that is aggressive, combative, focused, driven by desires at the worldly level and also spiritual and divine at the higher level of existence. The word Krittika means the one that cuts. At the worldly level it can mean digging beneath the surface to find the hidden truth. On the spiritual level it can mean cutting away the negative aspects of life and purification of the soul. Krittika is the nakshatra of radical changes.

Rahu is our insatiable desire, materialistic cravings for money, assets, name, fame, beauty and what not. Rahu also deceives, and gets what he wants by all possible means. Rahu also takes us to the spiritual path. How does that happen? Rahu lures us with all sorts of materialistic lures and sees if we can control ourselves. If we cannot, Rahu will take us for a ride, but if we can, we step into the path of liberation. Rahu has this habit of exploding the significations of the place wherever he sits, be it the Rashi, the house or at the nakshatra level.

So when Rahu moves to Krittika there can be some radical transformations in our lives and these transformations will come quite suddenly, unexpectedly, may be by exposure of hidden truths or by removal of the rotting, non-functional factors from our lives. Now by the word transformation we normally fear the worst, but mind that this can be a very positive transformation as well. For example, this will be the time to forget the past emotional wounds and come out in a new avatar. Or if you have been suffering from any disease and the right diagnosis has not happened so far, this will be a time when the right diagnosis will happen and you will come out of the health troubles. With all deep changes, some amount of pain is always involved and it applies here too. For many of us sudden, sharp turn in our lives’ path will change the way we have been living so far; for some it may mean streamlining the finances, family ties and so on.

Rahu in the Taurus side of Krittika can give a boost to the creativity, performing arts and music. This means having babies for many of you as well. A lot of emphasis will be on good food, good clothes and looking good. When Rahu is in the Aries side of Krittika that will be a time when aggressive actions and big sudden changes will come.

I shall now briefly discuss the results of this transit for all birth Nakshatras. When we are discussion transits through nakshatras, it is best to see the results from the birth nakshatra. Check in which Nakshatra your birth Moon is placed; that is your birth nakshatra.

If your birth nakshtra is Krittika or Uttara Phalguni or Uttarashada: You are born in Sun’s nakshatra. Rahu’s transit in Krittika means you can expect medium results.

Some anxiety or sadness may be experienced in life.
