Importance of Muhurat


Astrologers strongly believe that there is a definite time to start every good and auspicious work. This is because there is a good exchange of positive energy through the influence of planets and constellations during this time.
Astronomical events occurring in the universe can have a deep impact on our lives. And so, any activity carried out during an auspicious time will bring happiness in the native’s life. The changes in our life are caused and influenced by the movement of planets and so it is these planetary movements, which will make us experience good and bad times.


It is believed that the chances for the success of a task are maximized if it is done during an auspicious Muhurat. However, the maximum result of performing the task during an auspicious time is also influenced according to your destiny. That is why it is important to consider the effects of your birth chart on the Muhurat time before initiating an activity.

When calculating Shubh Muhurat, astrologers have to be mindful of a number of things. Vedic astrologers often calculate Muhurat on the basis of the Hindu calendar, the Vedic Astrological Panchang. They often track the planetary motions and positions, sunrise and sunset of the particular day, as it is believed to have special significance for calculating Muhurat, and analysing the native’s auspicious Nakshatras in mind. Often, people also consult astrologers to calculate a Shubh Muhurat for different festivals and rituals.

Calculating Shubh Muhurat is not a new tradition. Since the olden days, Kings would consult Pundits and astrologers to calculate the auspicious time before signing of treaties or before initiating rule over a new territory. Not only this, but even Kings would get their Vivah Muhurat calculated. The Bhagavad Gita also sheds light on how time is important and powerful. The Mythological story endorses why one should always begin good ceremonies and new activities as per favorable time.

Not only are Shubh Muhurat considered during marriages and before starting a new business, but many people also consult astrologers before buying a new house (Griha Pravesh Muhurat), or starting a new job (Employment Muhurat), or before starting school/college (Education Muhurat). Other occasions during which the auspicious time is calculated include Travel Muhurat, purchasing property or vehicle Muhurat, and even while engaging in Mundan (the first traditional haircut given to a newborn baby). In India specially, for following customs and traditions, astrologers are consulted to calculate Shubh Muhurat timings. Even during festivals and spiritual holidays, auspicious time is calculated to decide when Puja should be done!

While calculating a Shubh Muhurat, there are some precautions that one should keep in mind. For instance, astrologers believe that to yield successful results, a new business work should not be started on the fourth, ninth and fourteenth days of the lunar month. On the other hand, a new project or assignment should not be started on the sixth and eleventh days of the lunar month. According to many astrologers, any spiritual work or social/ charitable work should also not be done on any New Moon days, as they are believed to result in unfavourable outcomes. While purchasing a new vehicle, it should be ensured that the Moon is not situated in the sign directly opposite to your birth sign, as it could prove inauspicious.

Other than these, any sort of agreements and contracts should not be made on Tuesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. It is also considered inauspicious to lend money on Wednesdays and borrow money on Tuesdays.
