MUHURTHA IN VEDIC ASTROLOGY

MUHURTHA IN VEDIC ASTROLOGY |

 

‘Muhurtha’ means a moment. We live our lives moment by moment. When we receive good planetary energies, that moment is called ‘auspicious moment’ and if the planets deliver bad energies, then it is called ‘bad moment’. In Astrology, we prepare the birth chart of an individual based on the moment of his/her birth.  This birth chart indicates whether the individual becomes successful or not in his life depending upon the type of planetary energies at that moment. In the same way, when we start a new venture or business, we can construct a chart for that moment. This chart represents whether that new venture or business will be successful or not. This chart which is prepared to know the outcome of a venture or event is called ‘Muhurtha chart’.

 

Importance of Muhurtha

 

If the Muhurtha chart shows good planetary energies, then that venture becomes a successful one. So it is better to select an auspicious moment (good Muhurtha) for starting any venture so that the chances of success will increase. This applies to all important events in life. For example, if a person gets married in a good Muhurtha, then his married life will be good.

 

Some Astrologers are of the opinion that a beggar can become a king by starting his works in good Muhurthas. This is wrong. It happens only if the beggar has the planetary position to become a king in his birth chart. By following good Muhurtha, the beggar can become a king in less time and with less effort. This is how Muhurtha helps. Let us take another example. In a native’s birth chart, there is an indication that he will not get children. But if a good Muhurtha is set for his marriage and nuptials, then the chances of getting children will increase and he may be blessed with children. Setting good Muhurthas for all important events of life in such a way that the person will become highly successful in all areas is called ‘Electional Astrology’.

 

Indian Astrologers have done considerable research on Electional Astrology and came up with books like ‘Muhurtha Chinthamani’, ‘Muhurtha Marthanda’, ‘Muhurtha Darpana’, ‘Kaalamritha’, and ‘Uttara Kaalamritha’, etc.

 

NOTE: To understand this topic, you should have knowledge regarding Panchanga elements like sign (rasi), lunar day (thithi), star (nakshatra), yoga and karana. To know about them, click here.

 

General rules for setting a good Muhurtha

 

Setting a favorable star (Taara bala):

 

Count from the birth star of a person to the star where Moon is located at the time of the Muhurtha and divide the number by 9, if divisible. The remainder represents the following:

 

1 – Janma – represents danger to body.

2 – Sampath – indicates wealth and prosperity.

3 – Vipath – dangers and losses and accidents.

4 – Kshema – prosperity.

5 – Pratyak – obstacles and enmity.

6 – Sadhana – realization of ambitions through effort.

7 – Naidhan – dangers and death.

8 – Mitra – friendly and good.

9 – Parama Mitra – Very favorable.

 

From the above list, the favorable numbers are 2, 4, 6, 8 and 9. For example, if a person’s birth star is Bharani. The person wants to join the new job on a day when the star is Visakha. Counting from Bharani to Visakha, we get the number 15. Divide this number by 9 and the remainder will be 6. This number represents ‘Sadhana’ which is favorable. Hence the person can join the new job on that day.

 

Setting a favorable sign (Chandra bala):

 

In the Muhurtha chart, the Moon should not occupy the 6th, 8th or 12th house from the person’s birth sign. For example, the person’s birth star is Bharani which falls in Aries sign. The person wants to start a new business on a day when the star is Visakha – 4th quarter. This part of the star falls in the sign Scorpio. Counting from the birth sign Aries to the Muhurtha sign Scorpio, we get 8th. This is inauspicious and hence that Muhurtha should be avoided by the person.

 

Eliminating five types of bad energies (Panchaka rahitha):

 

In general Muhurthas where the person wants to join a job or attending an interview or going on a short journey, setting good ‘Taara bala’ and ‘Chanra bala’ is sufficient. But for important ceremonies like thread ceremony, marriage, nuptials, entry into a new house, etc, we should eliminate bad energies from the Muhurtha which is called ‘Panchaka rahita’. Count the number of lunar day (thithi), the number of the week day (1st is Sunday), the number of the constellation (1st is Aswini) and the number of the Ascendant (1st is Aries) of the Muhurtha. Add them together and divide the total by 9. See what the remainder represents:

 

1 – Mrityu Panchka – danger to life.

2 – Agni Panchaka – risk from fire.

4 – Raja Panchaka – risk from Government.

6 – Chora Panchaka – threat from thieves.

8 – Roga Panchaka – diseases.

 

So, the above numbers should be eliminated. If the remainder is 0, 3, 5 or 7 then it is good. For example, if a person wants to start a new business on a day and time when the lunar day is 13th (Triyodasi), the constellation is Pubba, the rising sign is Leo, and the weekday is Monday. Calculating Panchaka, we get:

 

Number of lunar day: 13

Number of constellation: 11

Number of week day: 2

Number of Ascendant: 5

Total: 31

 

Now dividing this number 31 by 9, we get 4 as remainder. This number 4 represents Raja Panchakam and hence the person will face a lot of troubles from the Government, Police, Taxes and Legal departments. Hence that Muhurtha is not auspicious for the person.

 

Other important yogas to be considered

 

Panchanga Suddhi:

 

Panchanga represents the five parts namely thithi (the lunar day), vaara (the week day), nakshatra (the constellation), yoga (the combination of Sun and Moon), karana (half of lunar day). These five parts should be good for any auspicious Muhurtha. This is called ‘Panchanga Suddhi’. In regard to lunar days, the 4th, 6th, 8th, 12th and 14th and full moon day and new moon day should be avoided. In regard to week days, Thursday and Friday are good for all works. It is better to avoid Tuesday and Saturday in most of the Muhurtas. In regard to the constellation, Bharani, Krittika and Aslesha should be avoided for all works. Auspicious constellations for any work are: Aswini, Rohini, Mrigasira, Pushyami (except for marriage), Makha, Uttara, Hasta, Chitta, Swathi, Anuradha, Moola, Uttarashadha, Dhanishta, Sravanam, Uttarabhadra and Revathi. Coming to yogas, out of 27 yogas the following should be avoided: Vishkambha, Vyaghatha, Parigha, Vyathipatha, Vydhriti, Ganda, Atiganda and Soola. In the available 11 karanas, we should avoid Bhadra and Nagavam.

 

Surya sankramana:

 

Once in a month, the Sun changes his sign and enters a new sign. A period of 6 hours and 24 minutes should be avoided before and after Sun’s entry into a new sign.

 

Karthari dosha:

 

The Ascendant in the Muhurtha chart should not be hemmed between malefic planets.

 

Shashtashta Riphagatha Chandra dosha:

 

In the Muhurtha chart, the Moon’s position from the Ascendant should not be at 6th, 8th and 12th houses.

 

Udayasta Suddhi:

 

The Ascendant and the seventh should be strong. For example, the Ascendant should be occupied by the lord of the Ascendant or the lord of the Ascendant should be exalted. In the same way, the seventh house should also be strong. It is very good if the Ascendant is occupied by Jupiter, Venus and Mercury.

 

Ashtama Lagna dosha:

 

The Ascendant in the Muhurtha chart should not be 8th from the Ascendants of both the bride and bridegroom. For example, the bride and bridegroom’s Ascendants are Aries and Leo, the Muhurtha Ascendant should not be Scorpio or Pisces.

 

Grahanotpatha dosha:

 

The constellations in which the eclipses appear should be avoided in muhurtas.

 

Ashtama suddhi:

 

No planet should be located in the 8th house from the Ascendant of Muhurtha chart.

 

Consideration of appropriate houses:

 

For all Muhurthas, the Ascendant and its lord should be good. To set a good Muhurtha for construction of a house or for house warming ceremony, we should see that the 4th house and its lord should be good. There should not be any malefics in 4th house and its lord should be with benefics or in his own house or exaltation. Similarly, to set a good Muhurtha for marriage, the 7th house and its lord should be good. To set a good Muhurtha for starting a new business, the 7th house and 11th houses and corresponding planets should be good.

 

According to Sage Bharadwaja, a fully flawless Muhurtha cannot be seen for years together. We should wait for such a Muhurtha for years together and hence it is advised to fix up a Muhurtha with less doshas (bad) and more gunas

History of Tarot

History of Tarot

The origin of the Tarot cards – which are actually cards with attractive pictures — continues to remain vague despite considerable research. According to conservative estimates, they are at least 500 years old. Some scholars, however, place them in the 1st century after Christ. Others aver that they originated from the religious rituals and symbols of the ancient Egyptians.

The earliest documented set of Tarot cards is rooted in the second half of the fifteenth century and was painted in Italy. The Renaissance had already adopted the Greek Gods and the Greek philosophy, which is why it is Greek mythology, moral, spiritual and mystical elements which form the backbone of Tarot cards. The images and imagery portrayed on the cards reveals hidden things which would not be discoverable through purely ‘rational’ means.

The Tarot cards have much to tell you. The Tarot pack is set of cards which may be used either for divination, or as a philosophical machine for answering almost any kind of question put to it through a medium or someone familiar with its powerful symbolism.

The images on the Tarot, and the interest in predicting events through symbols, dates back to ancient Egypt and even older civilizations, right across the world. Tarot may have travelled to Europe from the Middle East at the time of the Crusades, in the 12th century. The earliest surviving Tarot deck, however, comes from 14th century Italy, where an Italian nobleman had a deck hand-painted as a present for his daughters’ marriage.

Tarot cards show the major themes of life, and what we can learn about ourselves. Each card is called Arcanum, which means ‘mystery’. The pack consists of two quite different, though not totally unrelated, groups of cards, totalling 78 in number. In addition to 22 major cards known as the Major Arcana, there are four suits of cards -The Suit of Cups (symbolizing water), The Suit of Wands (symbolizing fire), The Suit of Swords (symbolizing air ) & The Suit of Pentacles (symbolizing earth) — which form the Minor Arcana.

In fact, the Tarot came to Europe about the same time as any other form of playing card, in the early/mid 1300′s. It is most closely related to the ‘Mamluk’ deck of the Islamic world, which had suits cups, coins, swords, and polo-sticks. The Tarot was originally used for a game called ‘tarocchi’ inItaly, which is sort of a distant cousin to Bridge. Tarocchi is still played in some parts of the world, not usually with the same decks the ‘fortune tellers’ use. The game was quite popular for a time among the royalty inItaly, and sometimes a duke would commission an artist to create a really nice deck. Some of the earliest surviving Tarot decks come from this source. Plainer decks existed, but were not well made enough, or well thought-of enough, to survive the intervening 600 years.The Joker of ‘standard’ card decks is “not” related to the Fool of Tarot. The Joker was invented as a wild card for Euchre in the 1800′s, in a part of the world where the Tarot was virtually or totally unknown. Most of the Tarot decks on the market were created this century, most of those in the last 20 years.

How Tarot Works ?

A tarot deck consists of 78 illustrated cards that you lay out in a pattern, or, ‘spread.’ Each card is symbolic of an energy or spiritual truth, its relevance colored by its position in the spread. While focusing on the topic at hand, the questioner selects the cards, either manually or electronically. The cards selected reflect aspects of the situation in a way that invariably stimulates insight and creativity.

Using the power of Synchronicity, Tarot taps both the subconscious and the superconscious Mind, the center of our psychic abilities. Anyone can gain insight from the intuitive stimulation of Tarot, even a total novice. But a gifted reader of Tarot is far more than someone exercising innate psychic abilities.

An appreciation of the history and psycho-spiritual nature of the Tarot archetypes demands a classical understanding. By bringing you this element, Tarot Magic lets you give yourself in-depth and accurate readings right off the bat and will lead to stronger intuitive abilities over time The Tarot cards have much to tell you.

The Tarot pack is set of cards which may be used either for divination, or as a philosophical machine for answering almost any kind of question put to it through a medium or someone familiar with its powerful symbolism. The images on the Tarot, and the interest in predicting events through symbols, dates back to ancient Egypt and even older civilizations, right across the world.

What is Tarot?

Cards have a wide array of use. There are gamblings cards for games likepoker, sports cards for trading and there is…tarot.

Tarot is a time-honored tradition of interpreting a pattern of cards randomly drawn from the deck’s78 traditional images to gain insight and achieve greater control over issues involving relationships, opportunities, and life changes. Tarot is over 500 years old, with roots that go back to Pagan antiquity, making it a Western repository of ancient wisdom. Interestingly, modern playing cards are a subset Tarot’s 78 cards.

The history of Tarot symbols is a study in the Western Mystery Tradition. Legend would have it that Tarot came out of China, India or Egypt. However, modern tarot scholars date Tarot back to 14th Century Italy and France. The Tarot cards have much to tell you. The Tarot pack is set of cards which may be used either for divination, or as a philosophical machine for answering almost any kind of question put to it through a medium or someone familiar with its powerful symbolism.

The earliest surviving Tarot deck, however, comes from 14th century Italy, where an Italian nobleman had a deck hand-painted as a present for his daughters’ marriage.

The Tarot was originally a deck of 78 cards, divided into 4 suits of 14 cards (the standard ace-10, then page, knight, queen, and king) and 22 un-numbered ‘triumphs’ or ‘trumps’. Over the years, the trumps got numbered 1 to 21, with one card (the fool) remaining un-numbered or sometimes being 0. The 4 suits are commonly called the ‘Minor Arcana’ and the trump cards are called the ‘Major Arcana’. More loosely, any deck of cards designed for ‘fortune-telling’, divination, meditation, contemplation, or other non-game uses is popularly called a Tarot deck. The most commonly found suits for Tarot decks are cups, swords, wands or staffs (probably originally polo-sticks), and pentacles (originally coins).
