Muhurta for Journey

Since ancient times astrology has paid special attention to journeys and travel. In olden days people used to consult astrologers for auspicious Muhurta before stepping out of the house for journeys and business travel. Even kings were used to seek advice from astrologers for auspicious times before leaving for the battlefield.

Complexities of life have increased in modern times and it has becomes more important to consult astrology for auspicious Muhurta for travelling. According to the astrologers assessment of Muhurta before going on a journey makes it easier to achieve the objective of the voyage.

Journey Naksahtra

In astrology Ashwini, Punarvasu, Hast, Punya, Anuradha, Shravan, Ghanishtha and Revati Nakshatra are considered benefic for journeys, that is it is good to travel in these nakshatras. Of these Nakshatras Ashwini, Hast, Punya, Anuradha are most favourable while Purvabhadrapad, Uttara Bhadrapad, Purvashada, Uttara Ashada, Purva Falguni, Jayeshtha, Mool, Shatbhisha and Rohini Nakshatra are considered average for travelling. Favourable nakshatras must always be chosen for journeys whenever possible.

Muhurta Journey day

Monday, Wednesday and Thursday and Friday are considered promising Muhurtha days for a tour, while Sunday, Tuesday and Saturday are average days. A point to note here is that a girl must not go to her in-laws’ place or her parents’ house on a Friday.

Muhurta Yatra Lagna

Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces ascendants are considered favourable for journeys and travel. But some combinations of ascendants (lagna) and tithis must be avoided for travel like nanda tithi i.e. it is best to avoid travelling when Leo, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn ascendants fall on the first, sixth and the eleventh dates. Bhadra tithi or Aquarius and Pisces ascendants on second, seventh and tenth tithis are also not good.

Journeys must also be avoided on Jaya tithi i.e. if Gemini or Virgo lagna are on third, eighth and thirteenth tithi. Aries or Cancer lagna on fourth, ninth and fourteenth tithi i.e. Rikta tithi is unlucky for travelling. Scorpio and Aquarius lagna on Poorna tithi or fifth, tenth, poornima (full moon) are also not good for journeys. According to astrology travelling at these times is generally not fruitful.
