Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha are based on lunar cycles. The fifteen-day cycle in which the moon grows is called Shukla Paksha, while the fifteen-day phase in which the moon dwindles is called Krishna Paksha. Each Paksha consists of fifteen tithes (or dates), with Shukla Paksha culminating in Purnima or the full moon, while Krishna Paksha culminates with Amavasya, the New Moon night in which the Moon is invisible. According to Vedic astrology, moon phases associated with Tithi are believed to be of great importance in the birth of a human being.
One very interesting fact about people born under Shukla and Krishna Paksha is that it is believed that the characteristics of humans born on the same tithing of the increasing or decreasing lunar cycle are the same. The exception to this rule is when a person is born on Poornima or Amavasya.
Our life is very similar to a food recipe that needs many ingredients for a perfect result. Accordingly, we can analyze our fate or events that occur in our lives, not just on the basis of birth in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha. Some of the other factors that affect our fate are whether we were born during the day or at night, or whether we were born on a specific tithing such as Pratipada, the first day of the lunar month, or Dwitiya, the second day of the moon.
Nonetheless, people born in Shukla Paksha have certain distinctive traits – they have a charming nature and are known to have a pleasant personality. When a person is born in Shukla Paksha, he naturally has the greatest desire to learn, with a passion for new technologies. Understanding of educational and commercial matters is a matter of course for those born under Shukla Paksha. These people are hardworking and responsible.
Now let's examine in more detail how the birth in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha affects your life and your destiny. We can then go into more detail on how Janam Titih or the date of birth according to the moon sign influence fate.
When we consider western astrology, we find that one's own personality and success in life depend equally on the position of the sun in the chart.
The sun stays in a sign for 30 days. The readings apply to all offspring born during this time.
However, when we consider Indian astrology, we see that the moon is given the highest importance. The moon stays in one sign for only two and a half days (30o). It takes about 28 days for the moon to complete one round of the zodiac.
We can therefore easily conclude that the readings are not only more realistic but also more reliable when we access an individual based on his moon sign.
Let us take a closer look at the concepts of Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha.
SHUKLA PAKSHA AND KRISHNA PAKSHA
Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha can be considered phases of the lunar month. While Shukla Paksha is the bright half, Krishna Paksha is the dark half.
Each of the pakshas consists of 15 tithes.
WHAT IS A TITHI?
A tithi can be considered as a single date in a lunar month.
A tithi is thus the duration during which the moon moves away from the sun.
Consider an example.
On the Tithi of Amavasya or the moonless night, the sun and the moon are the same length in relation to the earth.
If the moon advances at 12 o'clock in the next 24 hours, it will be the 1st Tithi or the Shukla Pratipada.
Similarly, it is the end of the Shukla Dwitiya or the second Tithi when the Moon reaches 24o.
A tithi can even be regarded as an index for changing the position of the moon with respect to the sun.
OLD KNOWLEDGE OF TITHIS AND PAKSHA
Astrology is a deeply rooted science and art form dating back to 5000 years.
Rish Munis and ancient astrologers from India were great visionaries. Her Divya Drishti, or divine vision that facilitates foresight, ensures that not only do they see the position of the moon in a sign, but they also understand and recognize specific characteristics of people born on each Tithi.
This led them to the conclusion that the life pattern of an individual is based on moon phases.
Another very important conclusion that they were able to deduce was that people who were born on the same tithing in either Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha have common characteristics.
The exception to the rule is when a person is born to either Poornima or Amavasya.
If an individual is born during the Shukla Paksha, we can expect from him certain very characteristic qualities.
Someone born in Shukla Paksha can fully realize his potential. Such a person would be capable of mastering the challenges that confront him, and of progressing on his own in life.
Mansagri was an old Indian astrologer of great fame, and in his opinion a person born in Shukla Paksha is as elegant as the full moon. He is rich, hardworking and well read in Shastras. Such a person would be efficient and learned.
On the contrary, a person born in Krishna Paksha is defined as cruel, speechless, hateful, not intelligent, someone who needs other help to make a living, and someone who has a large family.
In Vedic astrology, it is believed that when we consider Shukla Paksha, the Tithi has a profound impact on how the individual can progress in life.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN THE KRISHNA PAKSHA:
However, someone born under the Krishna Paksha has often observed that it may be difficult for such a person to adapt to the living environment and their needs and requirements.
Well, this too is highly dependent on other factors in the environment, but it may well be that such an individual has difficulty succeeding in life.
It has sometimes even been observed that a person born in Krishna Paksha, who comes from a wealthy family, falls into poverty. They can sometimes lose their authority or power. But if there are some really strong yogas in her Janam Kundali or in her birth chart, it is very likely that such a person will reach heights of success in life.
This means that the birth in Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha is by no means a comprehensive analysis of the fate of an individual. And for a comprehensive analysis of a person's life, career and destiny, a detailed analysis of the birth certificate is crucial.
Let us now understand how the birth in Shukla Paksha affects a person's life and destiny.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN THE SHUKLA PAKSHA
When a person is born in Shukla Paksha and comes from a poor family, he raises his own power to a destination of name, fame, and fame.
The progress would extend over his entire life.
At the time of his death, such an individual was in a higher position than ever before in his life.
A PERSON BORN IN THE MIDDLE BETWEEN SHUKLA PRATIPADA AND POORNIMA
In particular, if a human being is born to a tithi lying approximately halfway between Shukla Pratipada and Poornima, he would reach a peak in middle age, which would be followed by a period of decline.
The decline could last until the end of his life.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN IN POORNIMA OR SOME DAYS BEFORE HIM
It is likely that such a person comes from a family that does well and is distinguished. It is even possible that such a person begins his life in a promising and promising way. But he could experience a decline in his life and even disappear over time in a life that is insignificant.
This is in contrast to a person who was born in the Krishna Paksha, immediately after death (full moon).
If a person is born in Krishna Paksha and experiences a poornima immediately after birth, he will have to accept a gradual decline in his life, and this would remain so for an extended period in his life.
BORN HALF BETWEEN POORNIMA AND AMAVASYA
For someone who was born halfway between Poornima (full moon) and Amavasya (no moon), the decay stops halfway in his life. And from that point on, man would experience a steady increase in his life.
AN INDIVIDUAL BORN ONLY BEFORE AMAVASYA (NO MOON)
Someone who was born shortly before Amavasya is likely to have a mild condition in his earlier years. But when he approaches his youth, life will suddenly turn for the better.
ACTIVITIES OF A PREVIOUS LIFE SAY WHETHER A BIRTH IN THE SHUKLA PAKSHA OR THE KRISHNA PAKSHA IS BORN
Sometimes one may wonder what it is that defines whether an individual is born in Shukla Paksha or in Krishna Paksha.
According to Vedic astrology, it is the prarabdha or the deeds of previous life that are the deciding factor in deciding whether to be born in Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha. And the way they work is obviously beyond the control of an individual. It is defined only by the position of the moon at the time of its birth!
As mentioned earlier, the destiny of a person is determined not only by the paksha in which he is born, but also by some other factors, including.
-Positioning of planets in Janma Kundali or Birth Chaart
-Karma in his life
Influencing his fate to a great extent.
However, experts in the field of Vedic astrology know that benevolent Dasas occur later in life when an individual is born in Krishna Paksha.
