All You Need to Know About The Amavasya Vrat

Amavasya is the darkest night of the lunar month and is considered inauspicious for beginnings. In Hinduism, all new ventures are avoided on Amavasya. It is also believed that Amavasya is the most auspicious day to worship the dead and offer prayers to one's ancestors (Pitru Tarpanam). Lord Vishnu is also worshipped on this day. It is believed that those who die on Amavasya will be reborn as snakes.

What is Amavasya?

The very word Amavasya has a scientific inherent meaning. The word ‘Ama’ means together. ‘Vasya’ means to reside or stay in. Amavasya is when the moon resides in the house of the sun that is sun and the moon is together on the same side of the earth. To moon has come home to reside in the ambit of its parent body those us the Sun and the Earth. Full moon is wholesome and that is the Purnima. The exact opposite of that is the Amavasya.

Amavasya is the darkest Thithi of the moon. This Thithi occurs when the Moon is within the 12 degrees of angular distance between the Sun and the Moon.

Any auspicious activities like a planned birth, a house-warming, buying of land or assets and vehicles, travelling, naming ceremony, buying of jewelry, big business dealings are avoided.

In Hinduism, Amavasya has a significant religious importance. It is seen to be an ideal time for remembering and worshiping one's ancestors and departed family members. It is thought that when the Moonlight is not there, sunlight reaches them. There is also a notion that on this day, the forebears who have passed away come down to visit their offspring and successors.

This day is pitrus, according to the Vishnu Dharma Shastra (spirits of the ancestors). People feel that everything is worse during Amavasya. If they feel mentally unbalanced, on Amavasya they will be even more unbalanced. The gravity of the moon pulls everything towards it, that is, upwards on this day, which includes your blood and vitality.

This enhances human emotions and characterisation to their pinnacle. This effect is caused by the excessive blood flow in your head and an excessive flow of energy in your body. Amavasya is the day when the earth's wicked powers and evil energies are at their peak.

Effect on human life

Amavasya is of great religious significance in the Hinduism.

Amavasya is considered the day for many to remember their ancestors and pray for their souls. It is believed that the day that the moonlight is absent, the departed souls or forefathers come down to the earth and visit their descendants. In Hindu Dharma, Shastras indicate these to be Pitrus or spirits of the ancestors. Everything becomes extreme on this day.

For those with mental ailments feel more imbalanced on Amavasya. Human emotions and qualities are enhanced to peak this day, because on this day the gravitational force of the moon pulls everything upwards and, the same apply to your blood and energy. Any excessive flow of blood and excessive flow of energy in the body leads to this effect. Evil spirits and adverse effects of black magic are more powerful as per astrology and spiritual perspective.

One has to be careful even with new born on this day. The conjunction of the sun and moon in one zodiac leads to Samadhi which results in fluctuations in mood.

As far as Astrology is concerned, this day is considered beneficial to offer Shradh if you do not know the Thithi or you want to donate in a person’s name who has just passed away, Amavasya is considered good for that purpose. We can free our ancestors from negative energies if we pray for them on his day.

There are some remedies to fight against all ill effects of Amavasya.

Amavasya has its ill effects on human life but we need to look at this positively. The new sunrise after Amavasya brings new hope.

Rahu and its effect on Amavasya

This Thithi is ruled by Rahu, and sometimes can play havoc in the mind. It is very important to understand that this is the Thithi is when the illumination of the moon is the least. So this allows Rahu to create problems, capture our minds and create havoc.

The strength of the moon being the least makes Rahu pay with our mind so we perform those deeds to make sure we are reborn. Irrespective of being born on Amavasya, every month Amavasya falls so Rahu gets an opportunity to lure you and coax you to do something which you are not supposed to.

Why is Amavasya associated with Rahu?

On the Amavasya day, Ma Tara was molested by the moon. Ma Tara’s husband was Brihaspati who was the Moon’s guru. This is the most gruesome thing is to have an eye on your Guru’s wife.

So, Maa Kali had laid a curse on the moon, so whoever is born on this day, need to be additionally careful in their lives. Women born on this day suffer rape, mental torture and loss of purity and suffer like Tara until and unless there are remedies that are followed. The blot of cheating as well needs remedies.

So, no auspicious activities are performed on this day. The association of this day is with ending and death itself.

Insanity, accusation, depression, or tendency to cheat, is common for those born on Amavasya. Issues relating to progeny (child birth) is also common. However following the right remedies help get relief. We need to comprehend that why someone is chosen by the creator Brahma and why that Thithi is chosen for you to be born. So there is a karmic past life connection of being chosen to be born on this day.

Why should you avoid travelling on Amavasya

You might have heard from the elders of the family not to travel on Amavasya. When we combine common sense and spiritual reasons we can conclude that there were valid reasons for our elders to believe this. In earlier days when there was no light at night in villages. There is no light from the sky so it is not advisable to take a risk. The no moon day influences the psyche of the animals and they are wilder and their moods are influenced as they are disturbed.

Tantric practices are usually engage themselves in capturing spirits on days like Amavasya, so it is said not to step out so that there is no paranormal contact in any way. Taking new initiatives are avoided on Amavasya.

The ethos behind this is that for us we have a strong influence of every planet and body in space. So when the moon has no power it influences our capabilities both physical and mental.

Every planet has certain functionality. So similarly, the moon is known for intuition, clear thinking and eyes. The influence of the moon is negligible close to Amavasya and nil on that day.

So, starting something we need to have a clear mind and a stronger intuition. The exception is the people who are born on Amavasya. Even in modern times, despite not having animals and having adequate light it is advisable to look at the spiritual aspect as well. One can chant the Chandra Gayatri or keep a pure moonstone with them to stay protected. That would mimic the moon power in unavoidable circumstances.
