Krittika is the star cluster which is a lunar mansion in Nagavithi in the Northern Avashtana. In this moment when the sun is in the first degree of the lunar mansion, Krittika, and the moon is in the fourth of Visakha, it is the great equinox, or holy equinoctial season.
In the Hindu mythology, the god Murugan was raised by the six sisters known as the Krittika and thus came to be known as Kartikeya.
