The presence of various auspicious yogas on September 5 will make this year’s Janmashtami even more special. On the occasion of Lord Krishna’s birth, Rohini Nakshatra will prevail and it is considered very auspicious as Lord Krishna was born under this nakshatra. Apart from this, Sarvartha Siddhi and Amrit Siddhi Yogas will also be there; both these yogas will begin from the morning of Septemeber 2 at 20:47 and will be there till 19:19 at night.
Sarvartha Siddhi Yoga has a lot of significance as it is considered excellent for performing something auspicious or beginning something new. Certain combinations of Nakshatras with particular week days lead to the formation of this yoga. It is seen as a very fruitful yoga for completing your pending tasks, and the worship of Krishna during this yoga bestows you with success and prosperity and fulfills wishes. Similarly, Amrit Siddhi Yoga is an equally auspicious period according to the Hindu panchang and helps one get rid of wealth-related troubles. Worshipping Goddess Lakshmi along with Lord Krishna during this yoga can relieve one’s financial stress.
Apart from these yogas, Balav Karana, Harshal Yoga and Rohini Nakshatra will fall on this day.
