    Naksatras, and Tithis
    While selecting a suitable day and time for any undertaking, the prevalent Tithi (Lunar day), Nakshatra (Star constellation in which the moon is placed at that time) and the Yoga (auspiciousness) are taken into consideration. If you don't have an astrologer to guide you, the following basic information will help you. Please note that in Vedic Astrology everything has its functional use. Some days may be auspicious for some things, but inauspicious for other things.
    The 27 Nakshatras:
    Rohini, Uttaraphalguni, Uttarasadha, and Uttarabhadrapada are FIXED constellations and are favourable for digging wells, laying foundations or cities, expiatory rituals, planting trees, coronations, buying lands, meritorious deeds, sowing of seeds, installation of Deities, the building of a temple, or any other activity desirous of a lasting or permanent effect.
    Mrgasira, Citra, Anuradha, and Revati are SOFT or GENTLE constellations good for fine arts, learning, making friendships, sensual pleasures, decorations, sexual union, wearing new apparel, marriage, singing and dancing, processions, auspicious ceremonies, festivities, dealings of agriculture, and journeys.
    Ashvini, Pusya, and Hasta are LIGHT or SWIFT constellations and are good for sports, enjoying items of luxury, starting industries, skilled labour, medical treatments, starting education, starting journeys, seeing friends, buying and selling, the performance of spiritual activities, decorations, fine arts, exercise, and for giving or receiving loans.
    Arudra, Aslesa, Jyestha, and Mula are DREADFUL stars and are suitable for success in warfare, invocation of elementals and other spirits, imprisonment, separations, acts of destruction, and the breaking of alliances with superiors.
    Purnavasu, Swati, Shravana, Dhanistha and Satabhisa are TEMPORARY, MOVABLE, or QUICK stars favourable for undertaking travel, acquiring conveyances, gardening, going on processions, visiting friends, and anything of a temporary nature.
    Bharani, Magha, Purvaphalguni, Purvasadha, and Purvabhadrapada are FIERCE or CRUEL, constellations and are suitable for acts of evil, deceit, and conflict, destruction of enemies, incarceration, poisoning, arson, battle, setting fire, acts of destruction, ill-repute, and cruelty.
