Auspicious Muhurat for Vivah Sanskar

Astrology says that except the vargottam navamsha the last navamsha of any sign should be avoided. When Moon is in Capricorn then moveable Ascendant and Moon navamsha should be rejected. Navamsha of Gemini, Virgo, Libra and Sagittarius are auspicious for any sign.

Purification of tri-bala
The purification of tri-bala is important for the muhurat of marriage. In tri-bala purification the strength of individual transitions of Sun, Moon and Jupiter are determined from the kundlis of the bride and groom. Sun and Moon’s transitory strength is considered for the groom and Moon and Jupiter’s transitory strength is assessed for the bride.

According to Vedic astrology Sun on the 3rd, 6th, 10th or 11th house from the Moon sign is very auspicious for marriage. Remaining 1st, 2nd, 5th, 7th and 9th houses become auspicious after their purification but 4th, 8th and 12th houses should be strictly avoided.

Similarly the transition of Moon is auspicious on the 1st, 3rd, 6th, 7th, 10th and 11th houses from the Moon sign of the couple. The 2nd, 5th and 9th houses are purified after worshipping but the 4th, 8th and 12th houses are malefic in marriage muhurat.

Like Sun and Moon Jupiter also has a certain pattern. Jupiter transiting on the 2nd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th houses on the kundli of bride and groom creates an excellent muhurta for their marriage. The planet becomes auspicious after the purification of its transition on the 1st, 3rd, 6th and 10th houses and it gives negative results on its transition on 4th, 8th and 12th houses of the couple’s kundli.

Now from the above discussion it is evident that if these planets transit on the 4th, 8th and 12 houses from the couple’s Moon sign then they are considered as inauspicious for the marriage muhurat.

The houses shed their negativity and become benefic if Sun, Moon and Jupiter are placed in their own signs or exalted signs. Similarly combust or debilitated planets become inauspicious though they are auspiciously placed. This muhurat should be immediately avoided for marriage.

Godhuli Ascendant
In marriage muhurat the godhli Ascendant is used in emergency. A godhuli Ascendant is excellent if the marriage muhurat has an inauspicious combination of Ascendant, navamsha, lunar day, week day, nakshatra etc.

The duration of the godhuli Ascendant is between 12 minutes after and before the Sunset. In olden times when cattle used to come back during sunset after grazing throughout the day, the atmosphere used to get smoky by the dust of their footsteps. From this the term godhuli arrived, and the time is called the godhuli Ascendant.

But there are some doshas like kulika dosha, krantisamya, afflicted nakshatra and Saturday dosha which are active in godhuli ascendant as well. Hence the doshas dueto the placement of Moon on the 1st, 6th or 8th house and Mars on the 1st, 7th or 8th house remain as they are. That’s why godhuli ascendant should only be chosen for marriage when there is no other substitute.
