How does being born in Shukla Paksha influence an individual’s destiny?
Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha are based on the cycles of the moon. The fifteen-day cycle when the moon is rising is known as Shukla Paksha, while the fifteen-day phase when the moon is waning is known as Krishna Paksha. Each Paksha understands fifteen tithis (or dates), where Shukla Paksha culminates with Purnima or the full moon while Krishna Paksha culminates with Amavasya, which is the night of the new moon when the moon is not visible. According to Vedic Astrology, the phases of the moon, along with the tithi when a person is born, are believed to be of great importance.
A very interesting fact about people born under Shukla and Krishna Paksha is that the characteristics of people born in the same tithi of the waxing and waning cycle of the moon are believed to be the same. The exception to this rule is when an individual is born in Poornima or Amavasya.
Our lives are very similar to a food recipe that requires many ingredients for a perfect result. Consequently, we cannot analyze our destiny or the events that occur in our life solely on the basis of being born in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha. Some of the other factors that influence our destiny are whether we were born during the day or night, or whether we were born on a specific tithi like Pratipada, which is the first day of the lunar month, or Dwitiya, the second day of the lunar month. month.
However, people born in Shukla Paksha have certain characteristic traits: they have a charming disposition and are known to possess a pleasant personality. If an individual is born in Shukla Paksha, he would intrinsically have a great desire to learn, with a passion for new technologies. Understanding matters related to education and business enterprises comes naturally to those born under Shukla Paksha. These people are hard-working and responsible.
Let us now study in detail how being born into Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha influences your life and destiny. Then we can go into more detail on how Janam Titih himself or one’s date of birth according to one’s moon sign influences one’s destiny.
If we take Western astrology into consideration, we realize that personality and success in life are judged equally depending on the position of the Sun in the horoscope.
The sun remains in a single sign for 30 days. And the readings are generic for all descendants that are born during that time phase.
However, when we take Indian astrology into consideration, we see that a primary meaning is given to the moon. The moon remains in a single sign (30o) for only two and a quarter days. It takes about 28 days for the moon to complete a full round of the Zodiac.
Therefore, we can easily conclude that when we access an individual based on their moon sign, the readings are not only more realistic, but also more reliable.
Let us understand the concepts of Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha in more detail.
SHUKLA PAKSHA AND KRISHNA PAKSHA
Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha can be seen as phases of the lunar month. While Shukla Paksha is the bright half, Krishna Paksha is the dark half.
Each of the Pakshas understood 15 tithis.
WHAT IS A TITHI?
A tithi can be viewed as a single date in a lunar month.
So, a tithi is the duration during which the moon moves 12o away from the sun.
Let us consider an example.
In the tithi of Amavasya, or the moonless night, the Sun and the Moon are in the same longitude with respect to the earth.
When the Moon advances 12o in the next 24 hours, it is the first tithi, or Shukla Pratipada.
Similarly, when the moon reaches 24o, it is the end of the Shukla Dwitiya or the second tithi.
So a tithi can even be seen as an index of change in the Moon’s position relative to the Sun.
ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE OF TITHIS AND PAKSHA
Astrology is a deeply ingrained science and art form dating back 5,000 years.
Rish munis and the ancient astrologers of India were great visionaries. Their divya drishti or divine vision that facilitates foresight ensured that they not only see the position of the moon in a sign, but also understand and recognize the specific characteristic features of people born in each tithi.
This led them to derive the conclusion that an individual’s life pattern is based on the phases of the moon.
Another very important conclusion that they were able to draw was that people who are born with the same tithi in Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha have common characteristics.
The exception to the rule is when an individual is born in Poornima or Amavasya.
Now if an individual is born during Shukla Paksha, we can expect him to have certain very characteristic features.
Someone who is born in Shukla Paksha has the ability to develop their full potential. Such a person would have it in him to face the challenges that come his way and get ahead in life through his own efforts.
Mansagri was an ancient Indian astrologer of great fame and according to him, a person born in Shukla Paksha is graceful like the full moon. He is wealthy, hardworking, and widely read in Shastras. Such a person would be efficient and knowledgeable.
But on the contrary, a person born in Krishna Paksha is defined as cruel, severe in speech, hates women, unintelligent, someone who needs the help of others to earn a living, and someone who has a large family.
In Vedic Astrology it is considered that when we take Shukla Paksha into consideration, the tithi has a profound influence on how the individual can progress in life.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN KRISHNA PAKSHA:
But for someone born under Krishna Paksha, it has often been observed that such a person might face difficulties in adapting to the living environment and its needs and requirements.
Now, this is also highly subject to other environmental factors, but such a person may find it difficult to be successful in life.
It has even been observed at times that an individual born in Krishna Paksha, although coming from a wealthy family, ends up in poverty. Sometimes they can lose their authority or power. But if there are some really strong yogas in his Janam Kundali or birth chart, it is quite possible for that person to reach heights of success in life.
This really implies that being born in Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha is by no means a complete analysis of an individual’s destiny. And for a complete analysis about a person’s life, career and destiny, a detailed analysis of the natal chart is very essential.
Let us now understand how being born in Shukla Paksha influences one’s life and destiny.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN SHUKLA PAKSHA
When a person is born in Shukla Paksha, and if he comes from a poor family, it is through his own efforts that he rises to a destiny of name, fame and prominence.
The progress would extend throughout his life.
At the time of his death, said individual would be in a higher position compared to any previous moment in his life.
A PERSON BORN IN THE MIDDLE ROAD BETWEEN SHUKLA PRATIPADA AND POORNIMA
In particular, if a person is born into a tithi somewhere near the middle of the road between Shukla Pratipada and Poornima, they would peak around the Middle Ages, which would be followed by a period of decline.
The decline could last until the end of your life.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN POORNIMA OR A FEW DAYS BEFORE HIM
That person is likely to come from a wealthy and distinguished family. It might even be possible for such a person to start life in a promising and opportunity-rich way. But you may experience a decline in your life and it may even fade over time into a life that is immaterial.
THIS IS CONVERSED WITH AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN THE KRISHNA PAKSHA, IMMEDIATELY AFTER POORNIMA (FULL MOON)
If a person is born in Krishna Paksha and immediately after poornima, he would have to endure a gradual decline in his life, and the same would last for a prolonged phase of his life.
BORN MIDWAY BETWEEN POORNIMA AND AMAVASYA
For someone born halfway between poornima (full moon) and amavasya (no moon), the decline stops somewhere in the middle of their life. And from that moment on, the person would experience a constant increase in his life.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN BEFORE AMAVASYA (NO MOON)
Someone born just before Amavasya is likely to have a calm disposition in their early years. But as he approaches his youth, life suddenly takes a turn for the better.
THE FACTS OF PREVIOUS LIVES DICTES WHETHER ONE WAS BORN IN SHUKLA PAKSHA OR IN KRISHNA PAKSHA
Sometimes one may wonder what it is that defines whether an individual is born in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha.
According to Vedic Astrology, it is the Prarabdha, or the events of one’s previous life, that act as the defining factor in deciding whether one is born in the Krishna Paksha or the Shukla Paksha. And the operation of the same is obviously beyond the control of an individual. It is defined simply by the position of the moon at the time of birth!
However, as mentioned above, an individual’s destiny is defined not only by the Paksha he is born into, but by some other factors, including.
-Positioning of planets in own Janma Kundali or birth chart
-Karmas in your life
They also greatly influence your destiny.
However, connoisseurs of Vedic astrology recognize that when an individual is born in Krishna Paksha, beneficial dasas come later in life.
