Marriage is a union – generally between a man and a woman governed by certain legal and societal norms. For a successful and everlasting marriage, you need the right companion with whom you can develop a good understanding, a lasting love, and not to disregard a good sexual compatibility. So, which are the most auspicious marriage dates in 2023? Let’s find out.
When two people get married, they both have their own stars and own energies. These stars and energies should be compatible to each other as they will be interacting and spending their life together. If your horoscopes match, you are by and large compatible. Appropriate date and time are calculated based on the astrological calendar as per the planets transit and their placement in the respective horoscope of the bride and groom to make the union pleasant and lasting.
Jupiter and Venus are the main planets for marriage. Their position, placement, and transit are to be considered. Meanwhile, Mars indicates the libido. Astrologers do not advise marriage when these three planets are in combust or retrograde motion or not in a good house in transit as these adversely impact happiness in a marriage.
The placement of moon is also given immense importance in these calculations. These auspicious time slots are derived by considering all factors and events important in a person’s lifetime. Mercury, a benefic planet felicitates clean and open communication between partners and other family members, hence it plays an important role in nuptials.
The malefic planets Saturn, Mars, Rahu, and Ketu can disrupt the harmony and stability of marital relationships hence their placement, transit, and relation to the horoscopes of both the partners are also considered. Astrology should be taken as guidance and not followed blindly. One must be cautious, aware, and practical.
Only solar months are considered when deciding on wedding (marriage) dates. Chaturmas, a four-month period when Lord Vishnu is supposed to be sleeping is from 29 June to 23 November in 2023 stretching to five months this year due to Adhik maas. Adhik Maas and Pitrapaksha (A 16 lunar day period when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors) which are considered inauspicious for marriage will also fall during this time. In fact, marriages are also prohibited during Navratri. This year, Navratri will continue from 15 – 24 October 2023.
Marriages are not considered auspicious during Kharmas also. It is the time when the movement of Sun slows down. Kharmas is from 16 December 2023 to 14 January in 2024.
According to Chinese lunar calendar, in the year of Rabbit, the best and most fortunate dates in the last quarter to tie the knot are 2, 8, 13, 14, 17, 20, 25, and 29 of November. As per Chinese astrology, the year of the Dragon is considered the luckiest of all – and that’ll be in 2024.
