A new series begins today on the Jyotisha Indian Astrology Podcast, a series about the Tithis and the Pakshas. The Indian annual calendar consists of the lunar months. There will be another podcast series about that. Each month is divided into two pakshas, ‚Äč‚Äčnamely Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha. Paksha means half. Shukla means light. Krishna means dark. Shukla Paksha is the light half. Shukla Paksha is the phase of the waxing month. Shukla Paksha starts with the day after the new moon and ends with the full moon. Krishna Paksha is the dark half. Krishna Paksha is the phase of the waning moon. Krishna Paksha begins on the day after the full moon and ends with the new moon. Shukla Paksha is generally beneficial for anything that needs to grow. Krishna Paksha is beneficial for everything that is supposed to lose weight. So if you want to start something new, Shukla Paksha, the time of the waxing moon, is cheaper. If you want to open a business, if you want to open a yoga center, if you want to get married to have children, if you want to start a new project, Shukla Paksha is particularly helpful. If, on the other hand, you want to clean up, want to part with the old, if you want to focus on the essentials, then Krishna Paksha is particularly important.
