    With the help of Numerology, we will tell you about the importance of numbers (root, destiny and name number) as well as their influence on your life. With this information, you will be able to choose your right and lucky mobile number.

    Which Number will be Lucky for me?


    Whenever you buy a new mobile connection, it is very important for you to know how effective will be the combination of digits of new number for your life. For this, you should buy a mobile number which matches to Mulank (Root Number) and Bhagyank (Destiny Number) as per your date of birth, and is auspicious and lucky.

    What are Mulank and Bhagyank?


    Before knowing your lucky mobile number, you should first know about Mulank (Root Number) and Bhagyank (Destiny Number). Here we have given an example to help you easily understand this:
    The addition of the digits of a person’s birth date is called Mulank, and the addition of the digits of complete date of birth is called Bhagyank. Please note that the digits are added until the final output of number (Mulank and Bhagyank) is between 0 to 9. For example,

    Suppose a person’s Date of Birth is April 22, 1983, then their
    • Mulank as per Date (22) is = 2 + 2 = 4
    • Bhagyank as per Date of Birth (22.4.1983) is = 2+2+4+1+9+8+3 = 29 (2+9) = 11 (1+1) = 2
    This means that a person born on April 22, 1983 will have 4 as Mulank (Root Number) and 2 as Bhagyank (Destiny Number). As 2 is the number of destiny for a person here, therefore it plays a very important role in their life and will lead to the advancement of their fortune.

    How to find out your Lucky Mobile Number?


    Just like you find out your Destiny Number (Bhagyank), add the digits of your mobile number, until their final output is between 0 to 9. For example,
    If a person's mobile number is 9810098100, then total of the digits of this mobile number will be 9+8+1+0+0+9+8+1+0+0 = 36 (3+6) = 9.
    This means that their Yogank or Shubhank (Lucky Number) will be 9. Generally, 9 is considered a very auspicious number, however, it is highly auspicious for people with Bhagyank 9 or friendly with number 9.

    Things to Keep in Mind while Buying a Mobile Number


    Keep these things in mind when you go to buy a new mobile connection like -
    • If the digits of the number are in ascending (increasing) order, a person progresses in his life.
    • If the digits of the number are in descending (decreasing) order, a person obtains hurdles and obstacles in his life.
    • If 8 comes repeatedly in a mobile number, it is considered unlucky. As a result, a person may have to face various types of problems and criticisms, and his/her sufferings may also increase. However, it is auspicious for people with Number as 8.
    • If 9 is present in the digits of a mobile number, it is considered a highly lucky number. As a result, knowledge and wealth of a person increases and their luck also supports them.
    Therefore, whenever you go to buy a mobile connection, keep these points in mind. Also, make sure that 8 comes the least in your number and 9 comes the most.

    Note: This partial Solar Eclipse will not be visible in India and therefore, its Sutak timings and religious significance will not be considered here.


    Astrological Impact of Surya Grahan


    This Solar Eclipse is occurring in Ashlesha Nakshatra and Cancer. Ashlesha is the Nakshatra of Mercury and Cancer is ruled by Moon. Therefore, the people associated with both these Nakshatra and Sign may face the malefic effects of Surya Grahan. With the eclipse occuring during Ashlesha, lawyers, politicians, teachers, astrologers, Chemical Engineers, chemists and businesspersons may face its adverse effects. As Cancer is a water sign and ruled by Moon, therefore, the native of this sign may also face mental and water related problems.

    Horoscope Predictions for Surya Grahan


    • Aries: There is a possibility of success in certain aspects such as job and business. New sources of income will be achieved. Progress in career is also predicted. You will feel elated as well.

    • Virgo: Siblings will support you in every situation. Short trips are likely. Courage and strength will increase in you. Your interests in business will lead you to success.
    • Libra: Instability and restlessness may affect your life for a while. Problems in family life may occur. Your mother’s health may also decline.
    • Scorpio: Students may feel lack of concentration while studying. Misunderstandings may lead to problems in relationship with your beloved.

    • Pisces: Increase in stress may affect your health. Long journeys may prove troublesome for you. Certain issues at home may lead to difference of thoughts between you and your father. You may have to struggle for getting success and respect.


    Surya Grahan Sutak Kaal


    As we have already discussed that this partial Solar Eclipse will not be visible in India, therefore, its Sutak timings and religious significance will not be considered here. However, following activities are prohibited in Sutak period:
    • Worshipping idols or touching them, eating and drinking is prohibited and considered inauspicious during Sutak and Eclipse period.
    • It is highly beneficial to chant mantra during Sutak and Surya Grahan period.
    • These traditional rules of Sutak period are not applicable on helpless and sick people, elders, children and pregnant women.
    • Do not eat food. Only if it is necessary, then take milk, fruit, juice or Sattvic meal. Also avoid preparing food in this period.

    Do’s and Don’ts during Surya Grahan


    It is believed that negative energies become stronger during an eclipse, which affect humans negatively. Therefore as per religious beliefs, it is important to follow certain things during Solar Eclipse to avoid its malefic effects.
    • Put some Basil leaves in cooked meal, and in milk and curd before eclipse begins. This negates the effect of Surya Grahan on edible items.
    • Eat your food before and not during the eclipse.
    • Do not perform Puja or touch idols of deities, Tulsi and Shami plant.
    • Pregnant women should avoid activities such as cutting, sewing and peeling.
    • Avoid using a knife, scissor or needle.
    • Chant Surya Mantra and ruminate the name of God during this period.

    Things to Do after Surya Grahan


    • Take a bath after Eclipse and also bathe the idols of the deities.
    • Sprinkle Gangajal over Tulsi and Shami plant.
    • Donate things to the poor and needy after Grahan.

    This will be the last Solar Eclipse of the year. Next Year in 2019, again you will see 3 Solar Eclipses. Among them, first will be seen on January 6, 2019. Surya Grahan is a celestial phenomenon with special astrological significance. Its influence on human life and around the world is seen for quite some time.

    Mythological Significance of Nag Panchami


    There are some Indian mythological scriptures such as Skanda Purana, Agni Purana, Narada Purana and Mahabharata, which give information about Puja rituals for worshipping snake and also mention its religious and mythological significance. As per ancient beliefs, it is believed that the origin of snakes is associated with Lord Brahma, and that is the reason why worshipping them is considered auspicious. The son of Lord Brahma, known as Kashyapa had four wives. His first wife was the mother of all Devtas, second wife of Garudas, third wife of Nagas and fourth wife was the mother of all Asuras. The third wife of Kashyapa, named Kadroo, had given birth to Nagas. Therefore, Nagas (snakes) are also known by the name of Kadrooja.

    Nine Species of Snakes (Nagas)


    The Sanskrit names of 9 Great Nāgas are Anant, Vāsuki, Sheshnāg, Padmanābha, Kambala, Shankhapāla, Dhārtarāshtra, Takshaka, and Kaliya. Nag Panchami, also known as Bhratru Panchami, is the day when sisters along with their brothers worship snakes and their burrows (snake hole) to seek the blessings of snakes. Sisters performed this Puja for the well-being of their brothers, so that they do not suffer or steer clear of snake bites. This Hindu festival is also celebrated as Vishari Puja or Bishari Puja in some regions of the country, where Bisha or Visha means “poison”.

    Importance of Snakes in Hindu Religion and Vedic Astrology


    India has always been known as the land of snake worshippers and snakes. People of India celebrates the festival of Nag Panchami in honor of serpents and snakes. During the festival of Nag Panchami, people wash the snakes with milk ensuring their families safety from danger of snakes.

    It is believed that snakes are imbibed with more powers than humans. The connection of snakes with Lord Shiva, Lord Vishnu and Lord Subramanya, shows their religious significance and hence, shows the devotion of Hindus towards cobra and other snakes throughout the country. The relation of snake with Moon nodes in Hindu astrology is known for more than one reason. It is believed that the tail of the snake is considered as Ketu (Dragon’s tail) and the head as Rahu (Dragon’s head). If seven planets of an individual are surrounded between Rahu and Ketu in reverse order, it is said that the person has Kalasarpa Dosha or defect due to black snakes in his Zodiac Chart. It brings bad luck and hardship in an individual’s life. Therefore, it can be rectified by worshipping the snakes on the day of Nag Panchami.


    Celebration of Nag Panchami in Different States


    In the state of Maharashtra, there is a city called Nagpur where snakes have special eminence. The name of the city is derived from the word Naga (means snake) as the place or the place is full of snakes. Mahal area in Nagpur has a temple called Nagoba, where worshippers offer special prayers to snakes on Nag Panchami day. It is said that the temple was found under the Neem tree, known as “Nagoba ka vota”.

    In Banaras (Varanasi), Akharas (where wrestling practice has been performed) are decorated on the day of Nag Panchami. Additionally, Akharas are cleaned and painted with images of snakes, priests, and the gurus. Here, the festival is important as wrestlers are the symbol of virility and Naga symbolizes the “scheme of virility”. Therefore, the decoration of Akharas and images of snake shows snakes drinking milk. 

    In Kashmir, snakes have been worshipped by Hindu people from a very long time. In north eastern states such as Jharkhand, Odisha, West Bengal and Assam, Goddess Manasa Devi is worshipped on this occasion. In Hindu mythology, Manasa Devi is considered the Queen of Snakes and sister of Vasuki. She is also believed to be the Snake Goddess, Jaratkaru, the same snake that was wrapped around Mandarachal mountain during Samudra Manthan. In Maharashtra, devotees go round the burrows (snake hole) and sing songs in praise of snake gods. Furthermore, Manasa plant symbolizing the Goddess Mansa is also worshipped on this day. It is not only worshiped in the month of Shravan, but also in the month of Bhadra.

    In Karnataka, the preparation for the festival starts on the New Moon day of Bhima Amavasya, which is five days prior to the festival of Panchami. The festival is celebrated within the boundaries of the house. The devotees offer raw milk and green Bananas. Girls offer prayers to the images made with white clay and painted with white dots. During the ritual, they offer prayers and take a vow by tying a thread dipped in turmeric paste on their right wrist. An image of snake is drawn on the floor in front of the house and milk is offered as a religious offering. Before one night of the festival, they complete the fast or take a salt free diet. After Puja, a delicious feast is held.

    It is observed that if Nag-Panchami is celebrated every year with devotion and gaiety, then snakes bestow the person with good health, wealth and happiness. However, if snakes are unhappy or angry, they make you sick and no medicine can heal your from pain or suffering.

From the beginning of year 1947, India has passed through the Mahadashas of Saturn, Mercury, Ketu, Venus and Sun. Now, from August 11, 2018, India is going through Moon and Jupiter Mahadasha.
    • As per birth chart of India, Moon is posited in 3rd House in Cancer. At the same time, Jupiter (being the ruling planet of 8th and 11th House) is residing in 6th House in Libra sign.
    • From 3rd House, one can finds details about transport communication, telecommunication, share market, writing and similar things of India. 8th House tells about the natural disasters and problems that may occur in future in India. 11th House informs about parliament, assembly and nations’ law and order.

    India and Its Neighbouring Countries at a Glance


    As per India’s yearly horoscope, China will try to bother India again. It will try to obstruct India’s economy, and with the help of other countries including Pakistan, China will also try to politically restrain our country. However, India will remain prepared for facing the challenges that China will reflect on the country, and will also try to overcome China and Pakistan diplomatically.

    Inflation, Corruption and the Common Man


    Agitated by inflation, corruption, new rules and regulation, and the overbearing attitude of government officials, the common man may act aggressively or may show protest on the streets. However, the government will try to strengthen its administrative system, along with its working situation. As a result, government schemes would be fully implemented, which will benefit the citizens of the country.

    Political Instability and Struggle


    As Kaal-Sarp Yoga is in India’s Kundali till September 19, 2018, therefore one would see political instability in the country. Social conditions are also likely to be unstable in this period. There may also be the loss of life or property in some states of India due to natural calamities.

    Let's take an oath on the occasion of 72nd anniversary of India’s independence! We should vow to keep our country clean and maintain its unity, integrity and mutual goodwill. AstroSage wishes our readers a happy Independence Day!

    Celebrations of Onam


    Onam is one of the biggest festival in Kerala where people of all ages participate with great fervor and excitement. The festival is celebrated in the month of August - September, as per Malayalam Calendar, which is also named as Kollavarsham. This festival is celebrated in Chingam month of Kollavarsham.

    The festival of Onam lasts nearly for 10 days and it is celebrated to pay tribute to the great King, Mahabali, who was known for his valour. On account of his good deeds, God blessed him with a boon of visiting his people every year to see the welfare of his kin. On this day, people exchange Onam wishes and make each other feel happy with Onam blessings.
    • During this festival, people put on new clothes on this day, which is known as Onakkodi.
    • People also indulge in a handful of activities and dances performed during the festival of Thiruvonam, which is known as Onakkalikal. Myriad of competitions are also organized on this occasion, such as food-eating competitions, Uriyady, Ox races (Maramadimatsaram), Onam Pookalam competitions, etc.
    • There are many Hindu Keralite who install an image of Thrikkakara Appan or Onatthappan in their homes.
    • During the festival, Hindu temples are decorated with lamps, Diyas and candles. A Palmyra tree is set up in front of temples in Kerala. It is decorated and then, lit with a torch and burned to ashes, signifying the sacrifice of King Mahabali.
    • Onam festival is also related to creativity as potters and weavers go for an extra mile to fulfil the increased demands of the products, especially in regions of North Kerala such as Kannur and Kasargod. Handloom fairs are a great attraction of the spirit of Onam festivities during these days.


    History of Onam


    According to legends, Kerala was ruled by a very powerful King, Mahabali. It is said that when King Mahabali was the ruler of Kerala, there was nobody in the region who was sad or unhappy. Every single man was happy and full of peace and they respected their King to the utmost valour. King Mahabali was not only loved by his people but respected by people of other region as well. King Mahabali was also known by two other names - Maveli and Onathappan.

    King Mahabali ruled over all 3 Lokas - Deva Loka (Heaven), Bhu Loka (Earth), and Patal Loka (Nether World). Even after belonging from a demon clan, his generous nature was something that people loved the most about him. He defeated devtas to win the heaven. So, they requested Lord Vishnu to help them get back their kingdom. In order to help them, Lord Vishnu took Vamana Avatar, the form of a dwarf Brahmin.

    As we all know that offering donations to Brahmins is considered auspicious. Therefore, when Vamana visited the King, the Brahmin requested 3 steps of land from him. King agreed to this. Then, Vamana grew bigger in size, and covered heaven with his first foot, earth with his second foot, and as there was no area left so, the King offered his head to him. Brahmin pushed him down to the Patal Loka with his third step.

    Lord Vishnu was pleased with his act of generosity and asked him for a wish. The King requested the God if he can meet his people once a year. The wish was granted. Hence, every year on this day of Onam or Thiruvonam, King Mahabali visits his people.

    Read effects and fid accurate measures! Find out what is Shani Sade Sati and Dhaiya and how it impacts human life, as well as measures related to it.


    हिन्दी में पढ़ने के लिए क्लिक करें!

    People get fearful when they hear about Sade Sati of Shani and Dhaiya. Due to Saturn being tagged as a cruel planet in Vedic astrology, people have a belief that it brings pain, but it is not the case. Lord Shani is hailed as the Punisher or Penitent, which is why he is also called as the Justice-loving Judge in Kaliyug. He churns out the fruit of every action, good or bad, done by a native in this world. Shani has no claim to position, status and prestige, as it doesn’t matter to him. He punishes every person equally and gives out justice.

    Saturn is pleased when a person asks for forgiveness for his crimes and becomes determined to do good deeds. At the same time, Saturn is very cruel when it comes to punishing a man for his sins. Because when Shani punishes, he deprives one of wealth, honor, prestige and all amenities.

    Shani Sade Sati


    Sade Sati means seven and a half years. All Navagrahas transit in 12 zodiac signs. The journey period of planets in a zodiac sign is different. Among them, Saturn's duration is the highest, because it transits for about two and a half years in a zodiac sign. When it makes a transit from birth moon sign from twelfth house, rising phase of Shani Sade Sati begins. When it transits over the birth moon sign, peak phase of Shani Sade Sati remains. Now, when it enters in the second house from moon sign, setting phase of Shani Sade Sati begins. When it gets out from this house, Shani Sade Sati ends.

    As Shani remains in a zodiac sign for about 2.5 years, so its journey in these three houses adds up to 7.5 years. That is why it is called Sade Sati. apart from that, when Shani enters in fourth and eighth house from birth moon sign, it is called Dhaiya or CHoti Sade Sati. its duration is 2.5 years. 


    Remedies for Shani Sade Sati


    The simplest way to avoid the inauspicious effects of Shani Sade Sati is by performing auspicious deeds and repenting for all bad deeds ever done. Apart from this, religious and Vedic remedies can also be carried out to avoid such malefic effects.

    • To appease Lord Shani, worship him on Saturday. Along with that, offer food made in Sarso or Mustard oil to poor, needy, labour and dog.
    • Use mustard oil, black salt, surma, camphor (kapoor), kajal made by camphor, black sesame, black urad, iron nails, perfumes etc. when worshipping Shani Dev and donate them as well.
    • To get the blessings of Shani Dev, it is beneficial to read Shani Chalisa, Hanuman Chalisa or Dashrath Krit Shani Stotra on every Saturday.
    • Pour mustard oil in an iron vessel, see your reflection in it and donate the vessel. It is called Chaya Patra Daan.
    • Donation of items related to Saturn planet should be done in Saturn's Hora and Saturn's nakshatras (Pushya, Anuradha, Uttara Bhadrapada) on Saturday at noon or in the evening.
    • Respect your maternal uncle and the elderly people. Always keep your employees or servants happy.
    • Chant the Shani Beej Mantra for getting rid of Shani Dosha. Mantra - “ॐ प्रां प्रीं प्रौं सः शनैश्चराय नमः / oṃ prāṃ prīṃ prauṃ saḥ śanaiścarāya namaḥ”.
    • To please Saturn, you can also chant this mantra - "ॐ शं शनैश्चराय नमः/oṃ śaṃ śanaiścarāya namaḥ”.
    In Vedic astrology, Saturn has been called a cruel planet, but it is your friend, not your enemy. He rolls out the fruits of every deed in a justified manner. Hereby, if you want to avoid its malefic effects, do good deeds and think positively. 

    We hope that you like this article based on Shani Sade Sati. AstroSage wishes you a good and bright future!

    Rakhi Ceremony Muhurat and Puja Vidhi


    On this auspicious occasion, sisters tie the sacred knot called Rakhi around their brothers’ wrists. It is highly significant to perform this propitious ceremony in a Shubh Muhurat. Following are the rituals that are performed during Rakhi ceremony:

    • Prepare your Rakhi plate. Keep Roli, Kumkum, Akshat and Rakhi on it.
    • Make your brother sit on a seat (Aasan), and apply Tilak on his forehead. Then, tie Rakhi on his right wrist.
    • Feed him sweets, then perform an Aarti of your brother.
    • After that, brothers should present a gift or money to their sisters. It is also the obligation and duty of brothers to take a vow to protect their sisters and honor their virtue.


    Importance of Raksha Bandhan and Mythological Stories


    Raksha Bandhan has been celebrated since ancient ages in India. From Mahabharata Era to the history of Medieval India, there are several stories mentioned about Raksha Bandhan. Some of them are mentioned below:

    Story of Draupadi and Shri Krishna: There was a unique story in Mahabharata Era about Raksha Bandhan. When Lord Krishna killed Shishupal, his finger got hurt. Everyone was looking for a cloth to stop the bleeding. At that time, Draupadi tore a part of her Sari and wrapped it around Lord Krishna’s finger. It was the day of Purnima during the month of Shravana. Being grateful towards her, Shri Krishna made a promise that he will protect her. That is why, he came to her rescue during Draupadi’s Cheer-Haran by Dushasana.

    Story of Sikandar and Puru: The wife of Emperor Sikandar, made his enemy Puru, or King Porus, her half-brother. She asked him to promise her not to kill her husband. Then, during the war, King Porus spared Sikander’s life. Not only this, when Porus tried to attack him, he remembered his promise to his half-sister, and didn’t attack him, and became a prisoner. Seeing the nobility of King Porus, Sikander gave King Porus his country back.

    So, from the above two stories, we can see the purity and significance of this auspicious festival. Not only the above stories, but there are several stories in Indian history that have mentioned various examples of sacrifice and love done by brothers and sisters for each other.

    AstroSage wishes our readers a very happy and blissful Raksha Bandhan.

    Know the auspicious effects of Gau Pujan today! Kajari Teej festival will be celebrated today, i.e. on August 29, 2018. Read here to know the importance of this propitious occasion, fasting rituals and Puja Vidhi.


    In Hinduism, married women take certain fasts (Vrat) every year for the long-life of their husbands as well as for the happiness and prosperity in their families. Fasts such as Karwa Chauth, HartalikaTeej, Hariyali Teej, Vat Savitri Vrat and Kajari Teej are among the most important fasts for women.


    According to Hindu Panchang, fast for Kajari Teej is performed on Tritiya (third day) of Krishna Paksha in the month of Bhadrapada. However, as per Gregorian Calendar, this festival falls in the month of July or August. This year, the festival is occuring today on August 29, and will be celebrated by women across the country with devotion and enthusiasm. However, it is mainly celebrated in Hindu states of the country including Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar. This festival is also known by the name of Kajali Teej. Goddess Neemdi or Neemdi Mata is worshipped on this day. Married women fast on this occasion for longevity of their husbands. Additionally, unmarried girls also fast on this day to get blessed with a right and suitable husband.

    Vrat Rituals on Kajari Teej


    • Like Karva Chauth, this fast is also performed without drinking water (Nirjala Vrat). Although, pregnant women may have fruits on this day.
    • Usually the fast is opened by looking at the Moon as per rituals. But, if it is not visible in the sky, a woman can open her fast by looking to the sky around 11:30 PM, and offering Argh to the Moon God.
    • Once the fasting rituals (Udyapan) for Kajari Teej are performed, if proper Nirjala fast is not possible by a woman in the coming years, she can have fruits.

    To know more about this festival, read: Kajari Teej Vrat Puja Vidhi

    Rituals for offering Argh to Moon God


    • It is a tradition to offer Argh to Moon God on Kajari Teej. At night, women should sprinkle some water while looking to the sky, and offer vermillion (Roli) and Akshat (rice) to the God. After this, they should offer food as Bhoga to Moon God.
    • Offer Argh to Moon God while holding a Silver ring and few Wheat grains in your hand. Then, circumambulate (Parikrama) 4 times on the same place in a clockwise direction.


    Kajari Teej and Importance of Worshipping Cows


    In Hindu religion, Cow has been given the status of a mother, and is considered the holiest being in the world as per Vedas and Puranas. It is also believed that all the deities reside in Gau Mata (Cow). She is also known as Kamadhenu (a bovine Goddess, also known as the mother of fulfilment), who when worshipped brings happiness, peace and prosperity in the house. Gau Mata is especially worshipped on the occasion of Kajari Teej. The food is consumed only after feeding small round Chapatis made from flour dough along with Ghee and Gur (Jaggery) to the Cow.

    Traditions related to Kajari Teej


    • Several dishes are prepared on this auspicious occasion using barley, wheat, gram (Chana) and rice-mixture called Sattu along with Ghee and Meva.
    • Beautifully adorned swings are thrown on trees in the fields or gardens, and women gathers and celebrate this festive occasion by dancing to the tunes of folk-songs.
    • The tradition of singing folk songs while riding on a boat on this day is performed by the people of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.

    Just like Hariyali and Hartalika Teej, married women celebrate the propitious festival of Kajari Teej with lots of zeal and happiness. The fast performed on this day is dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

    We, at AstroSage, wishes our readers a very prospering and blissful Kajari Teej.

    Saturn progress will put your life in order! With Saturn direct in Sagittarius, certain changes will occur in your life. Read here to know what these changes might be, and the astrological significance of this major phenomenon.


    Saturn is considered a malefic planet as per Vedic Astrology. Lord Shani is also known by the name of Karmphal Data, and maintain balance in the worlds by offering results to humans as per their deeds.

    When Saturn aspects a person or influence him/her malefically, then obstacles, pains and sufferings occur in the life of that person. There are several mythological stories related to the wrath of Lord Shani like King Harishchandra, King Nal and Queen Damayanti, etc. These eminent people in ancient times have to face several pain and sufferings due to the malefic effects of Saturn planet. At the same time, if Saturn is favourable on a person, their life becomes blissful. As it is known that Lord Shani offers people the outcome of their good or bad deeds. Therefore, the only way to appease the God is to follow the path of righteousness and perform good Karma in life. Also serve the poor and miserable, and avoid lying and deceit.

    In Vedic Astrology, Saturn transit is a significant phenomenon. This is because Saturn stays in a Zodiac sign for about 2.5 years. Currently, Saturn is transiting in Sagittarius.

    With Saturn’s retrograde motion, natives of all Zodiac signs were suffering from various problems. But now as the planet will be in progressive motion, all their pain and sufferings would come to an end. Also, Lord Shani is the significator of Karma and services, therefore he will influence the profession and business aspects of people’s lives.

    Let’s take a look at how this direct motion of Saturn in Sagittarius would be for your professional domain as well as for your lives:

    Why fast for Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati today? Know Hartalika Teej Vrat Puja rituals. Also know the significance of this auspicious festival for girls and married women.


    Just like Hariyali Teej and Kajari Teej, Hartalika Teej is the festival of married women. Dedicated to Shankar Bhagwan and Maa Parvati, the fast is performed by married women for the wellness and long life of their husband and family.


    As per Hindu Calendar or Panchang, this festival is observed on the third day (Tritiya) in Shukla Paksha of Bhadrapada month. It is believed that this auspicious fast was performed by Goddess Parvati to get Lord Shiva as her husband. Therefore, the fast of Hartalika Teej can also be performed by unmarried girls. This festival is also known by the name of Badi Teej in some parts of India. It is especially celebrated in Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan along with other states with lots of zeal and happiness.

    Hartalika Teej Puja Muhurat
    Muhurat in Early Morning From 06:03:49 to 08:33:02
    Duration 2 Hours 29 Minutes

    Note: The Muhurat is valid for New Delhi. To know muhurat timings in your city, click on Hartalika Teej Muhurat

    Hartalika Teej Vrat Rituals


    The festival of Hartalika Teej is celebrated on Tritiya of Shukla Paksha in the month of Bhadrapada. This time period is of great significance as God Shiva and Mata Parvati are especially worshipped in this duration during Hasta Nakshatra.

    On this occasion, Shiv Parvati idols made of clay or sand are worshipped. Since, this is a Nirjala Vrat (without water), therefore, the devotees should only offer fruits to the deities. At night, Jagrans and Bhajans are performed to worship Parvati Maa and Bhagwan Shankar. This fast of Hartalika Teej is completed after immersion of Puja material (Samagri) in the morning, the next day.


    Hartalika Teej Vrat Katha and Significance


    According to religious beliefs, Parvati ji performed difficult austerity to get Lord Shiva as her husband. Seeing her condition, her father Parvat Raj Himalaya was very sad. Meanwhile, Narada Muni brought the marriage proposal for Maa Parvati on behalf of Lord Vishnu. When the Goddess heard about this, she became upset. After being asked by one of her friends, Parvati told them that she’s performing penance to get God Shiva as her husband. After this, her friends took the Goddess to the forest. Since then, the festival is known by the name of Hartalika Teej, as Maa Parvati was abducted by her friends, so that she could achieve her goal to marry Bhagwan Shankar.

    Here, the word Hartalika comprises “Harat”, which means abduction, and “Talika” that signifies female friends. After taken to the forest, Goddess performed severe austerity. On the Tritiya of Bhadrapada Shukla Paksha during Hasta Nakshatra, the Goddess created the idol of Lord Shiva with sand and worshipped him with complete devotion. Pleased with her sincerity and Puja, Lord Shiva accepted her as his wife as desired by Mata Parvati.

    Thus, performing this fast with utmost devotion, and worshipping Shiv Parvati while following all Puja rituals sincerely, blesses a girl or women with luck and prosperity. This is the reason why Hartalika Teej Vrat and festival is of high significance for girls and married women.

    AstroSage wishes our readers a happy Hartalika Teej and hopes that Maa Parvati blesses you all the happiness in life!

    Why Chandra Darshan is prohibited during Ganesh Chaturthi?


    It is believed that a person should not see Moon during Ganesh Chaturthi. The reason being that Chandra Darshan may cause Mithya Kalank to a person, i.e. she/he may charged with false allegations without any reason. As per religious texts, Lord Krishna also became the victim of falsehood (Mithya) due to Chandra Darshan. But what is the reason behind this belief?

    On the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, there is an ancient story about Chandra Darshan. According to this myth, Lord Ganesha cursed Chandra on the day of Chaturthi, and this is the reason why seeing Moon on this day is prohibited. If anyone sees Moon by mistake, then there is a description of Chandra Darshan Dosh Nivaran Mantra in Vedic scriptures. One can chant this Mantra 28, 54 or 108 times to avoid the harmful effects of Chandra Darshan. Additionally, reading the 57th chapter of 10th part (Skanda) of Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta also results in eliminating Chandra Darshan Dosha.

    Chandra Darshan Dosh Nivaran Mantra


    Simha Prasenam Vadhita, Simho Jambavata Hatah।
    Sukumarak Ma Rodistava, Hrosh Isyamantakah।।

    Renowned astrologers and wise scholars believed that worshipping Lord Ganesha is highly felicitous for a person. And, if you are affected by the malefic effects of Planet Saturn, or Shani Dasha is creating obstacles for you, enemies are distressing you, or if there are chances of an accident, etc, then ruminating the name of Shree Ganesh devotedly will eliminate all the pains and problems in your life.
