There are a host of factors in Vedic Astrology which define a person’s life and destiny. Some of these are
· Rashi or the moon sign under which a person is born
· The individual’s Sun sign
· At a precise level, the person’s date time and place of a birth have a telling influence on his destiny
Some other important factors in this regard are:
· The Nakshatra under which the individual is born
· Whether a person is born under Shukla Paksha or the Krishna Paksha
· Ruling planet of the individual in accordance with the Dasas.
· Tithi, as per the moon sign under when the individual is born.
· Whether the person is born during the daytime or night time.
· An individual’s Karmas nevertheless play a very significant role in defining his future and destiny.
The article mainly focuses on the effects of tithis and pakshas on the individual’s destiny.
You might have observed that some people come across success and positive results simply by putting in their best efforts. It’s almost automatic, and they find it easier to achieve what they desire. Whichever be the field wherein they have interest, success comes their way.
On the other hand, some people are required to strive much harder for achieving success in comparison.
There are some important factors which play a part in defining how much success an individual attains in his life. Let’s consider two of the most significant factors in this regard.
Timing of one’s actions has been considered of utmost importance with regards to the outcome. And that has been the belief in Vedic astrology since millennia.
In Vedic Astrology, it is believed that an action initiated during a time window which is auspicious is sure to yield positive outcomes. In the same way, if an action is initiated during an astrological time frame which is negative, it is not likely to succeed.
Correspondingly, deriving Muhuratas is a common practice in Vedic Astrology, wherein one figures out the most positive time for initiating auspicious work.
Karma too influences the outcome of one’s actions. If one has a positive heritage of Karmas with himself, he would intuitive take the right actions at the right time as defined by the cosmos.
The time phase when a person is born also lays a great deal influence in this regard.
So the tithis, or the moon day when an individual is born comes into the picture.
TITHIS: AN INTRODUCTION
Tithis are basically the dates of a lunar month, with regards to the position of the moon with respect to the sun and the earth.
Moon wanes (decreases in size as visible from the earth, owing to the shadow of the earth) for 15 days. In the same way, the moon waxes (increases in size) for 15 days.
So the tithis are subdivided as 15 for the waxing period (also known as the Shukla Paksha), and 15 for the waning period, (also known as the Krishna Paksha).
Moon lays a strong influence on our moods and emotions, and also perceptions. Correspondingly during the waxing phase of the moon, which is also known as the Shukla Paksha, our minds are upbeat and brighter.
So Shukla Paksha is the ideal time to startup new projects.
However during the Krishna Paksha or the waning cycle of the moon, one is likely to be more introverted and deeply involved with self analysis and contemplation. So this is a better time to take stock of the proceedings, and do away with the patterns which do not work in our favor.
Let us now check out the characteristics of people born in Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha.
