Mercury Transit in Scorpio, Know Its Effects

Mercury transit will change the lives of these 4 zodiac signs! Read about the transit of Mercury taking place in Scorpio on 23rd October 2019 and its astrological significance.


Planet Mercury is considered the smallest in size among all Navgrahas in the Universe but faster among all. Therefore, the transitory period of Mercury is also the shortest. It remains posited for about 14 days in a zodiac sign. Mercury owns the title of the Prince among the Navagrahas. It is a benefactor of intelligence, logical ability, mathematics, speech and green color. Out of all the 12 zodiac signs, it governs Gemini and Virgo. Mercury remains exalted in Virgo and debilitated in Pisces. At the same time, Ashlesha, Revati and Jyestha Nakshatra comes under its governance.


Mercury is a neutral planet, and bears the fruits as per its placement with other planets. As a result, it offers positive results with benefic planets and disputed outcomes with inimical planets. If Mercury is placed strongly in a native’s kundli, s/he becomes a good orator, mathematician, smart, clever and intelligent. On the other hand, when the Mercury is weak, the native lacks in communication and mathematics 

Therefore, to strengthen the planet, natives must pacify it by worshipping or chanting the Budh Mantra. Wearing Emerald or Panna in your right hand’s little finger helps to strengthen the state of Mercury. Dus Mukhi Rudraksha or Ten-Faced Rudraksha and Vidhara root can also help to pacify the planet and acquire good results.

Ahoi Ashtami 2019 Puja Muhurat & Aarti

Observing the Ahoi Ashtami Fast offers longevity to children. Know the fasting rituals and points to keep in mind when performing them.


Ahoi Ashtami is observed four days after Karwa Chauth on the Ashtami during Krishna Paksha in the month of Kartik. Devotees worship Goddess Ahoi on this day, and as this fast falls on the Ashtami, hence it is called as Ahoi Ashtami. It is believed that if the divine Goddess is venerated by married women with full devotion on this auspicious day, their children attain longevity, intellect and prosperity in life. Devotees who are fasting must open their fast after the Moonrise. Married women also observe this fast to get blessed with a child. In the year 2019, Ahoi Ashtami Vrat will be observed tomorrow, i.e. on Monday, 21 October. 


Ahoi Ashtami Puja Muhurat


Puja MuhuratFrom Evening 17:46 To 19:02
Stars Rising During The Evening18:10
Moonrise23:46


Ahoi Ashtami Fast & Puja Rituals 


  • Wake up early before sunrise.
  • Clean the altar properly.
  • Sprinkle the Gangajal all around the house and clean thoroughly.
  • Then pledge to observe the Ahoi Ashtami Fast with a devoted heart.
  • Place the idol or picture of Maa Ahoi on the altar, and place Singhada, Radish and a bowl of Rice in front of it. 
  • Sit together with your family members and recite the Ahoi Mata Vrat Katha diligently.

During the morning puja, fill an urn with water and place a Karwa on top of it. The same Karwa which was used on Karwa Chauth must be used here as well. As per the traditions, the idol of Mata Ahoi is carved in silver and worshipped. Ahoi is also known as Syahu and Saahi. 

Things To Keep In Mind On Ahoi Ashtami


  • Fasting on Ahoi Ashtami is observed to get blessed with kids or for their longevity. Therefore, one who fasts on this day must avoid killing animals or consuming meat. 
  • You must not also dig the soil as there are small creatures like pests, insects, ants etc., and you can unknowingly kill any living creature.
  • Also, avoid consuming Tamasic food or meat one day before fasting for Ahoi Ashtami. As one cannot consume water on this day, hence it is also called as a Nirjala Vrat or Fasting without Water. 
  • Avoid fighting or getting into a dispute with anyone.
  • Do not scold young kids in your family. 
  • Use a silver or brass urn to offer Arghya to the stars on the night of Ahoi Ashtami. Avoid using copper urn.

Mythological Legend Behind Ahoi Ashtami


Let’s read in detail the popular legend associated with this festival. A long time back, a moneylender and his wife had seven sons. Few days before Diwali in the month of Kartik, the wife thought of renovating the house, and went to the forest to dig up some soil. While digging with a spade, a young porcupine got accidentally killed by the wife, and cursed her to face a similar fate. As a result, all her kids died within a year, leaving her devastated.

Unable to tolerate the pain, both husband and wife went to the final pilgrimage on foot, and walked until they were unconscious. At this moment, a celestial announcement was made, in which the couple was told to go back, serve the cow and worship Goddess Ahoi. After hearing such words, they came back, and on the eighth day during the month of Kartik, the wife drew a porcupine and her kids on the wall, and performed the Ahoi Ashtami fast with devotion. This appeased the Goddess, who eliminated her sin and blessed her with fertility.



Ahoi Maa Aarti in Hindi


जय अहोई माता, जय अहोई माता!
तुमको निसदिन ध्यावत हर विष्णु विधाता। टेक।।

Sun Transit In Libra, These 5 Signs Must Remain Prepared!

With the Sun transiting in Libra, these five signs must remain alert! Read about the planetary transit of Sun in Libra on 18 October and its effects.


What will happen in 2020 astrology

Planet Sun in Astrology


The Sun represents energy, light, and passion, and is considered the best among all Navagrahas. It leads the nine planets and emits life and light. If it is strongly posited in one’s kundli, then it makes the native royal, filled with regal skills. It also develops leadership and administrative qualities within the individual. Natives under the positive influence of the Sun are idolized, and respected by society. In Vedic Astrology, Sun rules the Leo sign. Therefore, its effect is clearly visible on the Leo natives.

The Sun stays in a zodiac sign for a month, i.e. it moves from one sign to another in one month. Aries is its exalted sign, whereas it debilitates in the Libra sign. This means that the planet Sun will enter its debilitated sign Libra during this transit, and hence, become weak.

Importance of Karva Chauth


The word Karwa Chauth is made up of two words, 'Karwa' i.e. 'earthenware' and 'Chauth' i.e. 'Chaturthi'. Earthenware, i.e Karve, is considered to be of special importance on this festival. All married women wait for this festival throughout the year and fulfill all the rituals with great reverence. The festival of Karva Chauth symbolizes strong relationship, love and trust between the husband and wife.

Importance of Henna or Mehandi


Henna or Mehandi is considered to be a sign of good luck. In India, there is a belief that the dark color acquired after applying Henna on the hands symbolizes more love from her husband/lover and in-laws. Another belief is that a dark-colored Mehndi represents longevity and good health of the husband. Mehandi is a part of the eternal “Shringaar” of a woman, and enhances the beauty and charm of a girl/woman. 


Offering Arghya To The Moon


When the Moon appears in the sky, all married women who have observed the fast come out to the open area/terrace to perform the ritual. They worship the Moon by lighting the Diya and offering the Arghya through the Karwa. Then, they look at the Moon first through a sieve and then at their husbands’ faces. Then the husbands feed them some sweets or Matthi and water. 

In this way, they open their fast and promise to support their husbands at every turn of life. Along with it, Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati and Lord Kartikeya are also worshiped along with the Moon. It is believed that worshipping them helps to attain the blessings of Goddess Parvati and bring all kinds of happiness in life.


Rules To Follow During Karva Chauth 

  • Lord Ganesha, Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati must be venerated before moonrise.
  • The woman who is observing the fast must wake up before sunrise, take a bath and eat something which can help them sustain throughout the day.
  • The idols of the deities must be kept facing the West, and the person who is performing the rituals must face the East.


Mantras To Chant During Karwa Chauth Puja


  • To venerate Maa Parvati: 'ॐ शिवायै नमः'/ 'oṃ śivāyai namaḥ
  • To venerate Lord Shiva: 'ॐ नमः शिवाय'/ 'oṃ namaḥ śivāya
  • To venerate Swami Kartikeya: 'ॐ षण्मुखाय नमः'/ 'oṃ ṣaṇmukhāya namaḥ
  • To venerate Lord Ganesha: 'ॐ गणेशाय नमः'/ 'oṃ gaṇeśāya namaḥ
