WEEKDAYS        LUNAR DAYS- TITHIS       YOGAS

Instructions: To determine how good or bad a day is, as well as its suitability for various activities, consult a Vedic calendar to obtain, and note the following on a sheet of paper:

  1. The Day of  the Week (Vaara)  - Sunday, Monday etc. 

  2. The Lunar Day of the Week (Tithi) and the Paksha which tells you whether the moon is waxing or waning. Shukla Paksha is the waxing phase, while Krishna Paksha is the waning phase.

  3. The Ruling Nakshatra of the Day .i.e. the constellation in which the moon lies on that day.  

  4. The Yoga for the day.

A Vedic calendar is precise and gives the exact time when each of these    change.

  • In general, you must give the most importance to the Nakshatra (constellation), and also check the readings of the Nakshatra of the day with reference to ‘how it is for you, specifically’ using the relevant chart given on the site.

  • Following a consideration of the Nakshatra factor, consider the Tithi or Lunar Day as well as the Paksha, which tells you whether the moon is waxing or waning. In general the waxing moon (Shukla Paksha) is considererd more beneficial than the waning moon (Krishna Paksha).  The nature of a tithi or lunar day can be seen from the chart given on this page.

  • Other than The Nakshatra and Tithi, you should consider the nature of the weekday (Vaara), and the Yoga for the day. The temperaments and nature of these are given in tabulations on this page.

TITHIS (LUNAR DAYS) **

The lunar day is considered an important factor in influencing our minds. Historically, the waxing or waning moon has been associated with the mind (consider the term lunacy), and the full moon and lunar eclipses have been associated with mental problems and even an increase in deformed births.

The current tithi or lunar day can be seen from a reading of the Vedic Calendar (Panchang)
