Vedic Astrology and Significance of Muhurta

Vedic astrology is recognized universally as one of the most scientific and accurate manifestations of astrological science. The slightest deviation in planetary positions can make a remarkable difference in your life. It can change luck, and lift one from rags to riches. In Vedic astrology, a special branch deals with the determination of auspicious date and time, called 'Muhurta'. In general terms, it is a carefully calculated time span, which is considered auspicious and optimal to perform a specific tangible task.

Vedic astrology is also called a science owing to its intricate relationship with the science of planets and their impact on human life. For instance, the Sun’s radiation has effects on human health and the Moon affects human psychology considerably. Similarly, other planets or heavenly bodies also cast an influence on various aspects of our lives. Many thousands of years ago, ancient Vedic astrologers from India developed a method to calculate a time of day or night that was auspicious and sacred for a specific event, which you wished to perform. Examples of such events include engagement ceremonies, weddings, the launching of a new business and the purchase of a home. 

Now that we have introduced you to the concept of Muhurta, let us tell you how it works. Muhurta is a period of two ghatis or forty-eight minutes. A Muhurta comprises the ‘Panchang’, i.e., ‘tithi’ (lunar day), ‘vara’ (weekday), ‘nakshatra’ (constellation), ‘yoga’ (joint motion of the Sun and Moon), and ‘karana’ (half a lunar day). There are different combinations of the five elements of ‘Panchang’ that have auspicious and inauspicious values attached to them. For example, the 4th, 6th, 8th, 12th, 14th and new moon, also called Amavasya, are avoided.

Saturday is equally inauspicious to start something new.

Of the twenty seven ‘Nakshatras’ or constellations, ‘Bharani’ and ‘Kritika’ are considered inauspicious in Vedic astrology when it comes to Muhurta. Of the ‘Yogas’ 6th, 9th, 10th, 17th and 27th are inauspicious and of the ‘Karanas’ ‘Bhadra’ is the most inauspicious.

A qualified Vedic astrologer takes into account all these tangible variables as well as the purpose of the event to calculate the most fruitful ‘Muhurta’. The two heavenly bodies ‘Rahu’ and ‘Ketu’ play a significant role in the determining the Muhurta.

Rahu and Ketu denote the two points where the orbit of the earth around the sun, intersects with the orbit of the moon around the earth. According to Vedic mythology, Rahu was an ‘Asura’ or demon who tricked ‘Devata’s or Gods and drank some of the ‘Amrit’ or divine nectar during the Divine Upheaval also known as ‘Samudra Manthan’. However, the king of Gods, Vishnu, cut his throat before he could swallow the universe. Since he had drunk the divine nectar, his head became immortal. Ketu is the body of Rahu.
