Auspicious Dates & Times (Muhurta – Electional Astrology)
There is an application of Vedic astrology called Muhurta.
It is translated as Electional Astrology. Simply put, it is the time we “elect” (or select) to begin important events in life.
For example, electional astrology can be used for selecting auspicious times for marriage, new business ventures, long journeys and business travel, and acquiring fixed assets — such as homes and property — or launching a space shuttle or getting sworn in as president.
By electing an auspicious time for these events, we significantly contribute to the success factor with regard to these events.
Electional astrology is based on the concept that there is a chart (horoscope) for any given moment of the day or night. For example, there is a chart for the moment of a baby’s birth, or when we sign a contract or start a business, or when we say, “I do” at a wedding ceremony. There is even a chart when the president of the country takes the oath of office — or when we launch a space shuttle.
Therefore, if one takes the time to consider the chart for the moment of these events, then one can see the general trends, planetary strengths and weaknesses, and whether overall success or failure is indicated.
In other words, if the chart for the moment of the event is afflicted, (the ruler of the chart is debilitated, or afflicted by a malefic planet, or is placed in one of the inauspicious house — ruling debts, sickness, accidents, obstructions, deathlike experiences, losses, and expenses — or, if the planet ruling the current operating period is a functional malefic), then the chance for success is considerably reduced — and even disasters can occur.
On the other hand, if the ruler of the chart is well-placed and is free from afflictions, and if the rising sign is free from afflictions, and if the functional malefic planets in a chart are not causing any severe affliction, and if the operating planet is a well-placed functional benefic planet, then the chance for success is considerably enhanced.
With electional astrology, we take the time to elect (select) a chart for a moment in time when all or most of the indications are favorable.

For example, please do not say, “I want to get married — or start a new business — next week, when is a good time?”
It is better to say, “I want to get married next year — or start a new business next year — when is a good time?”
