Electional Auspicious Hours for Starting a House
A house is the cherished
dream of every man. After one gets a job and gets married, the next step is
the acquisition of a house.
Those who follow the Wisdom
of the Heavens will be careful about selecting auspicious times for building a
house. Auspicious electional hours are selected to avoid inauspicious events,
which may plague the family later on.
Griha Arambha or Time for
construction of new house
Certain sidereal months are
to be avoided for starting Griha Arambha, for inhabiting a house.The sidereal
month of Cancer, for example. The Cardinal Signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and
Pisces are to be avoided and the other 8 signs are auspicious.
The Sun in the Pleiades
constellation, Karthika, in Cancer, in mutable Signs, Gemini, Virgo,
Sagittarius and Pisces - are all to be avoided.
There should be Chathurtha Shuddhi, that is, malefics should not inhabit the
House of Home and Happiness, the Fourth.
Amongst the Half Lunations (
Karanas ), Simha ( Lion ) and Vyaghra ( Tiger ) are to be avoided. Mars
in the Eighth is also inauspicious. So is Sun in the Ascendant.
Sunday and Tuesday are to be
avoided. The 3,5, 7 stars of the house owner should be renounced. Also his
Karthru Doshas. Also Gulika Rising and Moon in 6,8,12 houses.

Entry into the New House
Three sidereal months,
Cancer, Virgo and Aquarius are inauspicious which means that the other nine
months are auspicious.
These are the stars which are auspicious for Griha Arambha
Magha and Moola plus the 16
stars which are auspicious for Food Giving ( Anna Prasna )
