The Krittika people are by nature harsh, sarcastic, and discerning. The symbolism of the razor also speaks of sharp or sharpened tools and the work performed with their help, for example, the preparation of animal skins for leather and fur products. Sharp objects such as pens and writing pens, sewing needles, and sharp instruments such as drills are all controlled by Krittika.
The solid position of Karttikeya – the commander-in-chief of the heavenly army – directly says that Krittika is in control of the war, battles, armies, and disputes, and the fact that Karttikeya is famous for monumental heroic deeds implies that his nakshatra is always in sight and that she has aspirations and projects that go beyond the ordinary. Since Karttikeya’s body and armor shine like the sun, Krittika also rules over gold and is in some way associated with wealth. The mythological plots associated with it tell, among other things, about adoption, foster motherhood, and the assigned responsibility to patronize others.

Krittika has both constructive and destructive potential. The first is manifested through the actualization of the need for creativity. The second is in countering tendencies that slow down the evolutionary process. Krittika seeks to understand the reason for any action and situation and, therefore, is often faced with a discrepancy between the apparent and the real, with various kinds of imperfections.
