About Choghadiya

Choghadiya or Chogadia is used for checking auspicious time to start new work. Traditionally Choghadiya is used for travel muhurthas but due to its simplicity, it is used for any muhurtha. There are four good Choghadiya, Amrit, Shubh, Labh and Char, to start an auspicious work. Three bad Choghadiya, Rog, Kaal and Udveg, should be avoided. The time between sunrise and sunset is called day Choghadiya and the time between sunset and next day sunrise is called night Choghadiya.

About Vaar Vela, Kaal Vela and Kaal Ratri

It is believed that no auspicious work should be done during Vaar Vela, Kaal Vela and Kaal Ratri. Vaar Vela and Kaal Vela prevail during daytime while Kaal Ratri prevails during night time. It is believed that all Manglik works done during these timings are not fruitful.

How to mark Choghadiya Good or Bad?

The first Muhurta on each weekday is ruled by the weekday lord. For example, on Sunday, the first Choghadiya Muhurta is ruled by the Sun followed by Venus, Mercury, Moon, Saturn, Jupiter and Mars respectively. The last Muhurta of the daytime is also ruled by the day lord.

Hence the effect of each division, either bad or good, is marked based on the nature of the ruling planet. In Vedic Astrology, the time period under the influence of Venus, Mercury, Moon and Jupiter is usually considered auspicious while the time period under the influence of Sun, Mars and Saturn is usually considered inauspicious. Based on the above information, we can mark each Choghadiya Muhurta as bad or good. It should be noted that bad Choghadiya can also be appropriate depending on the desired work which needs to be accomplished.
