Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha are based on the cycles of the Moon. The fifteen-day cycle, when the moon is setting, is known as Shukla Paksha, while the fifteen-day phase when the moon is setting is known as Krishna Paksha. Each Paksha comprises fifteen tithis (or dates), with the Shukla Paksha ending with Poornima or Poornima, while the Krishna Paksha ends with Amavasya, which is the new moon night when the Moon is not visible. According to Vedic astrology, the phases of the moon at the time of a person’s birth, combined with tithi are considered to have a great significance.
A very interesting fact about people born under Shukla and Krishna Paksha is that those born on the same date of the waxing or diminishing cycle of the Moon are considered to have similar characteristics. The exception to this rule is when a person is born on a full moon or new moon day.
Our life is like a food recipe which requires many ingredients for a perfect result. Similarly, we cannot analyze our destiny or events in our life on the basis of being born in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha only. Some other factors that affect our fate are whether we were born during the day or night, or if we were born on a specific date such as Pratipada, which is the first day of the lunar month, or Dwitiya, the second day of the lunar month. .
Nevertheless, people born in the Shukla Paksha have some distinctive traits- they are of an attractive nature and are known to have an attractive personality. If a person is born in Shukla Paksha, then he will have a great desire to learn, with passion for new technologies. People born under Shukla Paksha have a natural understanding about matters of education and business ventures. These people are hardworking and responsible.
Let us now study in detail how birth in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha affects your life and destiny. After this we can go into more detail about how one’s date of birth according to one’s date of birth or one’s moon sign affects one’s fate.
If we take western astrology into consideration, we come to know that one’s personality and success in life are judged equally based on the position of the Sun in the horoscope.
Sun stays in one zodiac for 30 days. And the readings are common to all descendants who are born during that time.
However, when we take into account the Indian astrology, we see that the Moon is given prime importance. Moon stays in one zodiac (30o) for only two and a half days. It takes approximately 28 days for the Moon to complete one complete rotation of the zodiac.
Thus we can easily conclude that when we access a person on the basis of his Moon sign, the readings are not only more realistic but also more reliable.
Let us understand the concepts of Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha in more detail.
Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha
Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha can be seen as the phases of the lunar month. While Shukla Paksha is the bright half, Krishna Paksha is the dark half.
Each side has 15 dates.
What is a date?
A tithi can be seen as a single tithi in a lunar month.
So a tithi is the period during which the moon travels 12o away from the sun.
Let us consider an example.
On a new moon day or new moon night, the Sun and the Moon are at the same longitude with respect to the Earth.
When the Moon moves forward at 12 o’clock in the next 24 hours, it is the first tithi or shukla pratipada.
Similarly, when the Moon reaches 24o, it marks the end of Shukla Dwitiya or second Tithi.
So a Tithi can also be seen as an indicator of the change in the position of the Moon with respect to the Sun.
Ancient knowledge of tithes and sides
Astrology is a deeply rooted science and an art form which is 5000 years old.
The ancient sages and astrologers of India were great visionaries. Their celestial vision or the divine vision that facilitates farsightedness ensures that they not only see the position of the Moon in a zodiac, but also understand and recognize the uniquely distinctive traits of people born on each date.
This led him to conclude that the life pattern of a person is based on the phases of the moon.
Another very important conclusion that they could draw was that people who are born on the same date in the Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha have similar characteristics.
The exception to the rule is when a person is born on either a full moon or a new moon.
Now if a person is born during Shukla Paksha, we can expect some very specific traits from him.
A person born in Shukla Paksha has the ability to develop his potential to the fullest. Such a person has the ability to face the challenges that come in his way and move ahead in life with his efforts.
Manasagari was an ancient Indian astrologer, and according to him a person born in Shukla Paksha is as beautiful as a full moon. He is rich, hardworking and well educated in the scriptures. Such a person will be skilled and learned.
But on the contrary, a person born in Krishna Paksha is defined as cruel, harsh in speech, woman-hating, not intelligent, requiring the help of others to earn a living and having a large family.
In Vedic astrology it is believed that when we take into account the Shukla Paksha, Tithi has a profound effect on the person being able to progress in life.
A person born in Krishna Paksha:
But for someone born under Krishna Paksha, it is often observed that such a person may face difficulty in adjusting himself to the living environment and his needs and requirements.
Now this is also subject to other environmental factors, but it may be possible that such a person has difficulty in being successful in life.
It has also been observed many times that a person born in Krishna Paksha, though coming from a wealthy family, ends up in poverty. They can sometimes lose their authority or power. But if they have some really strong yogas in their birth chart or birth chart, then it is quite possible that such a person will attain heights of success in life.
What it actually means is that being born in the Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha is by no means a comprehensive analysis of a person’s fate. And a detailed analysis of the birth chart is very necessary for a comprehensive analysis about the life, career and destiny of a person.
Let us now understand that being born in Shukla Paksha affects the life and destiny of a person.
A person born in Shukla Paksha
When a person is born in Shukla Paksha, and if he is from a poor family, he reaches the destination of name, fame and prominence through his own efforts.
Progress will last for the rest of his life.
At the time of his death, such a person would be in a higher position than at any earlier time in his life.
Person born between Shukla Pratipada and Poornima
Specifically, if a person is born on a date between Shukla Pratipada and Poornima, he will peak around middle age, followed by a period of decline.
The decline can last until the end of his life.
Person born on full moon or a few days before
It is likely that such a person hails from a family that is affluent and prestigious. It may also happen that such a person starts his life in a way that is promising, and full of opportunities. But he may experience a decline in his life, and over time may even disappear into a life that is immaterial.
It is with a person born on the Krishna Paksha, immediately after the full moon (full moon)
If a person is born in the Krishna Paksha and immediately after the full moon, he has to face a gradual decline in his life, and this will last for a long period in his life.
Born between full moon and new moon:
A person who is born between a full moon (full moon) and a new moon (no moon) stops decaying halfway through his life. And from that time, one will experience a steady growth in his life.
A person born just before the new moon (no moon)
Someone born just before the new moon is likely to have an easy-going nature in their earlier years. But as he approaches his youth, life suddenly takes a turn for the better.
The deeds of one’s past life decide whether one is born in Shukla Paksha or in Krishna Paksha.
Sometimes one wonders what is it that defines whether a person is born in Shukla Paksha or Krishna Paksha.
According to Vedic astrology, it is prarabdha, or karma of one’s past life that is the deciding factor in deciding whether one is born in Krishna Paksha or Shukla Paksha. And doing the same thing is clearly beyond the control of a person. It is only defined by the position of the Moon at the time of one’s birth!
However, as mentioned earlier, a person’s fate is defined not only by the side in which he is born, but also by a few other factors, including:
-Position of planets in one’s birth chart or birth chart
deeds in his life
They also influence their fate to a great extent.
It is recognized by the scholars of Vedic astrology, however, that when a person is born in Krishna Paksha, beneficial slaves come later in his life.
