Auspicious and Inauspicious Tithis
Date is more appropriate in the context of the work which is related to the work date. For example, Nanda Tithi is considered suitable to increase happiness, hence it is auspicious for work related to entertainment party and movie release etc. Bhadra is considered luck and it is auspicious for health, success, starting a new job and business and meeting an important person. Jaya Tithi is auspicious for success with high marks, such as competition, examination and litigation. Rikta Tithi is suitable for making inauspicious fruits auspicious and for getting rid of anything, such as surgery to eliminate enemies and get rid of debt. Similarly, education in the context of fullness and abundance. It is auspicious for agriculture etc.
Nanda Tithi, Bhadra Tithi, Jaya Tithi, Rikta Tithi and Poorna Tithi come in three phases in a Paksha. These dates are inauspicious in the first phase of Shukla Paksha, give moderate results in the second phase and suitable and auspicious in the third phase. But in Krishna Paksha, this sequence is reversed. These dates are suitable and auspicious in the first phase, give moderate results in the second and inauspicious in the third.
In the first phase of the Shukla Paksha Tithi, the Moon stays at 60 degrees in the solar lunisolar circle, so the Moon is inauspicious during this period. In the second phase, the moon stays at 60 to 120 degrees and during this time the moon is neither very inauspicious nor auspicious. In the third, the moon stays at 120 to 180 degrees and during this time the moon is very inauspicious. But during the first phase in the Krishna Paksha, the Moon stays at the degree of 180 to 240 and is very auspicious. In the second phase of this Paksha, the Moon resides at a degree of 240 to 300 and during this time the results obtained from the Moon are neither very auspicious nor inauspicious. Similarly, in the third phase of this Paksha, the Moon stays at a degree from 300 to 360 and it is very inauspicious.
Fourth, sixth, eighth, ninth, twelfth, fourteenth and fifteenth dates are considered inauspicious for auspicious work. One should avoid working and starting new work during these dates. Barring few exceptions in these dates, then the person does not get auspicious results, in this the sixth date is not very inauspicious. If Venus or Jupiter is in the Ascendant, then the person does not get inauspicious results as it destroys the negative effects of the inauspicious date. Similarly, if the angles are auspicious, then the negative effects of Rikta Tithi also get reduced. If Jupiter is good or in its friendly sign, then the sixth, eighth and fifteenth zodiac signs do not give inauspicious results in this situation.
Paksha Chitra Tithis
The above inauspicious dates are also known as Paksha Chitra Tithi, which means weak position. These dates are the cause of bad thoughts and sorrows in the mind and they consider the weakness of the person and his erratic behavior.
The dates that fall during the fourth, eighth, twelfth, fifteenth and Sankranti are known as Parva Tithi, which means to break. Doing face-to-face change and change work in these dates does not give good results to the person. Therefore, during this time a person should avoid starting auspicious work. But if some fundamental changes have to be made, then the festival date is subtle but in favor of the person.
The first of the Shukla Paksha and the eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth dates of the Krishna Paksha are known as Kali Tithi. These dates are not considered good, except in some special cases, for the beginning of auspicious work, because the moon is submerged and subtly fruitful during these dates.
Krishna Paksha Tithis
The first five Tithis of Krishna Paksha will be auspicious or inauspicious, nothing can be said, but except the first Tithi, the first five Tithis of Shukla Paksha are auspicious. The other five Tithis of Krishna Paksha are neither more auspicious nor inauspicious as compared to the dates of Shukla Paksha. Therefore, if there is no good option, then it is good for the person to work during this time. Some blind dates come in the last five dates of Krishna Paksha, so one should avoid starting any auspicious work during this period.
Kshaya and blind Tithis
Tithi is considered effective when it is completed in one sunrise, but if a tithi is completed in two sunrises then it is called Andhi Tithi. Similarly, if a date starts from sunrise and ends at the next sunrise instead of sunset, then it is called Kshya Tithi. Both these dates are not considered good, so one should avoid starting auspicious work during these dates.
The person should avoid the date of the side and date in which the person was born.
There are some zero dates of every month, Kalprakashika and Muhurta Chintamani have different views regarding which date is zero date. From Kaalprakashika, zero date is determined on the basis of month only, whereas from Muhurta Chintamani, zero date is determined on the basis of both Paksha and month. But the date taken out by Kaalprakashika on the basis of the month is considered more effective than the Muhurta Chintamani.
If there is no way to reduce the wrong effect of zero date, then in any case, during this time the work should be avoided. If the work is towards completion and there is some problem in completing it, then working on zero date is auspicious in some situations. like- If the lord of Tithi is sitting in Dusthan and zero sign is not sitting in any other planet other than the lord of Dusthan or the lord of Tithi is having relation with the lord of Dusthan.
In this situation, it is also appropriate to do creative and beneficial programs because in these cases all the ill effects of zero date are eliminated. If the position is not in favor, then after some troubles of zero date, in the following situations, date will be able to come in favor. If the lord of the Ascendant is having a relationship with his zodiac sign, then the negative effects of zero date will end. If Jupiter is also in the same Nakshatra like the Moon, then all the effects of Zero Tithi ends. If all the auspicious results are in a strong position, then in this situation also all the effects of zero date get eliminated.
The eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth fifteenth of Shukla Paksha and the first, second, third and fourth tithi of Krishna Paksha are called Andhi Tithi. Eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth Tithi of Shukla Paksha are called Ardha Drishti and fourteenth and 15th Tithi are called Poor Drishti. The first, eighth, ninth, tenth day of Krishna Paksha are called Ardha Drishti Tithi and second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh are called Purna Drishti Tithis.
Half vision is auspicious to some extent and full vision is very good and suitable for starting work. Andhi Tithi is not auspicious except for a few exceptions, so it is not good to start work during this Tithi, but if Mercury is in the third, sixth, tenth or eleventh house and the Moon is in the ninth and tenth house and it is being aspected by any auspicious planet. If yes, then all the negative effects of Andhi Tithi end.
Even if Mercury, Jupiter or Venus are placed in the fourth, seventh, or tenth house by being auspicious, the negative effects of Andhi Tithi are eliminated. If the planet is in an auspicious position or in ascendant, then all the negative effects of Andhi Tithi get eliminated. Even if the Moon is in the fourth, seventh, ninth and tenth house, the blind date does not fall on the wrong person.
Yugadi and Manvadi Tithis
It is believed that these Yugas started in the following months and dates and they are called Yugadi Tithi. Satyayug Satyayug starts from the ninth date of Shukla Paksha in the month of Kartik.
Tretayuga- Satyagug begins on the third day of Shukla Paksha in the month of Baisakh.
Dwapar Yuga- Dwapar Yuga begins from the thirteenth date of Krishna Paksha of Bhadrapada month.
Kaliyuga- Kaliyuga started on the new moon of the cloud month.
It is believed that these Manvantaras began in the following months and dates and are called Manovadi Tithi. For example, Swayambhuva Manvantara started on the third date of Shukla Paksha in Chaitra month and Brahma Swarni Manvantar started on the seventh Tithi of Shukla Paksha of Megh month.
The three Manvantaras have different views regarding Manavadi Tithi, out of which the first Muhurta comes from Chintamani and all the others come from Kalaprakashika. But such a combination is made very rarely and there is a lot of lack of information in this context.
According to Muhurta Chinatamani, the date which is from Yuga and Manvantar is not good for the beginning of work. Therefore, one should not do any new work other than charity, bathing in the holy river, pilgrimage and similar religious activities. According to Kalprakasika, the time is not suitable for the study of Vedas alone.
All Tithis have a different time when they give their negative effect. This period is called Vishnadi Tithi, this date does not give auspicious results in other cases except few exceptions. Vishnadi Tithi is present for four Nadis. The first Nadi is said to be the factor of downfall, the second Nadi affects the life of a particular person, the third Nadi is the factor of all kinds of things and the downfall of all the people. Fourth Nadi is a factor to harm the prosperity of the family.
If the Moon is in the ninth or tenth house and Jupiter is aspecting it, then the inauspicious effects of Vishnadi end. Similarly, if the Moon of Shukla Paksha is exalted in its Navamsa or is in the throne month in the Ascendant, even then the ill effects of Vishnadi are eliminated.
