The Hindu calendar or Pachanga has great importance in Vedic astrology. The calendar works as a Vedic timer that helps Vedic experts/astrologers to determine the 'right' time to carry out Hindu festivals, celebratory functions, or rituals. We explain to you how the Hindu almanac works as your Vedic wristwatch.
Vedic Watch: The Moon is your ancient clock’s needle, for the big dials of your Life
Don’t you think that it has become very important to keep track of your time in life, and how to keep track of your daily life?
The answer will be a big ‘Yes’.
And you may be familiar with the ‘chronograph’, which falls under the watches that perform multiple works like an alarm, stopwatch, date-keeping, and lunar phases, with other complicated features as well.
We all avail this amazing modern day technology of the Chronograph watch, because we understand and value all things in our life. It means that we deserve the best watch given to us from the universe through the medium of Vedic Astrology, and the name of that divine branded watch is the Panchang.
We use an automatic power generating system to run a watch. It is the same with the the Vedic Watch, where the Sun is the real source of automatic power, generating one and each hour of your Vedic Watch. The Moon becomes the needle of the clock, which will give you the divine date and time as per your date of birth.
The time of day/night at which you have been born, has an important relationship with the Sun, which can be calculated, based on the degrees made by the Moon and Sun together.
Due to that relationship (The distance between the Sun and Moon in Degree), it would become very important and will be known as Tithi (Day) in Vedic Astrology.
The Hindu Almanac defines the Tithi as the Lunar Date and Time. Panchang/Almanca takes the longitudinal between the Moon and the Sun increased by 12° each day.
The different degrees will give you different Tithis, also known as the Waning and Waxing Moon day, which would be an identity for you. These Waning and Waxing Moon would work on the light and color wavelength, and affect out thought as well.
Each day, the degree will get varied between the Sun and the Moon. The Moon is with the Sun for fifteen days known as the Waxing Moon phase, and when the Moon starts getting started going close to the Sun for fifteen days, known as the Wanning Moon phase.
The exact Tithi in which you have been borne, whether it is Waxing or Waning, will give a unique personality with which you will live your life.
In Vedic Astrology, each Lunar day (Tithi) has their own particular deity and based on that deity, happiness and challenges will come into your life.
The Waning and Waxing of your birth date will show that what type of relationship between the Sun and Moon is there in your birth chart.
The Tithi will give you the clue regarding the strength, weakness, likes and dislikes you will have.
The Tithi (Lunar day) is also controlled by one of the major nine important planets, which will have the command over your relationship, and also the career you will choose to have the success and happiness in life.
