Vara, Tithi & Nakshatra

Combinations of Vara, Tithi & Nakshatra

While selecting a Muhurta , a suitable day and time for any undertaking – the Tithi (Lunar day), Nakshatra (Star constellation in which the moon is placed at that time) and the Yoga, Karana (auspiciousness) and Vara (weekday) are taken into consideration. Apart from that certain good times and bad times in a day, combinations of certain weekdays with Nakshatra & Tithis are taken into consideration and certain doshas like Panchaka Doshas ans Ekavimshati Doshas are also considered. If you don’t have an astrologer to guide you, the  information on this page will help you to select a muhurta for marriage or entering a new house etc.. Please note that in Vedic Astrology everything has its functional use. Some days may be auspicious for some things, but inauspicious for other things.

AUSPISCIOUS VARA/TITHI YOGAS

Siddha Yoga is formed by the combination of Fridays and Nanda Tithi i.e. Pratipada, Shashthi or Ekadashi. This is a very auspicious combination. Siddha Yoga is formed by the combination of Wednesdays and Bhadra Tithi i.e, 2nd, 7th, or 12th Tithi.

EFFECTIVENESS OF VARA/TITHI/NAKSHATRA YOGAS

Different Vara/Tithi/Nakshatra Yogas have changed in various regions of India. Some are auspicious and some are unauspicious for natives. Yogas are only effective and need only be considered in different parts of India. Since these Yogas are astronomical considerations it does not follow logic that they would only be effective in particular parts of India, rather they have been found to be effective on all parts of the globe, both within and beyond India. In practice, these Yogas have been found to be most significant and no astrologer anywhere can afford to neglect them if he hopes to accurately determine a favorable Muhurta.
