Meaning of Choghadiya?
Choghadiya is = "Cho" + "Ghadi". The word "Cho" means four. And in Vedic Astrology, Time is measured in Ghadi. 1 Ghadi is equal to 24 minutes. So Choghadiya means the period of four Ghadi which is equal to 96 minutes or 1 and 1/2 half hours approximately. Aaj Ka Choghadiya is provided in the table above.
How Choghadiya is Calculated?
The time from Sunrise to Sunset is divided into 8 equal parts to calculate day time Choghadiya popularly known as Din Ka Choghadiya. Time from Sunset until the next day Sunrise is divided into 8 equal parts to calculate night time Choghadiya also known as Raat Ka Choghadiya. There is a total of 16 Choghadiya Muhurats in 24 hours and each is categorized into Good or Bad Muhurat. All of these parts are equal but the duration of each part greatly depends on the City. At some locations, days are longer and nights are shorter and at some locations, nights are longer and days are shorter.
Shubh Choghadiya Muhurats
Four Shubh Choghadiya is mentioned in all authentic Muhurat Principles. They are Amrit, Shubh, Labh, and Char. Amrit Choghadiya means free from bad influence, long lasting and it is the best time to pray to God. Shubh means good, blessed and Griha Pravesh should be done in this period. Labh means gains and usually business started in this period shows huge gains.
Sometimes, Good Choghadiya is neutralized by bad muhurat like Rahu Kaal. Many people get confused about times when Shubh Choghadiya and Rahu Kaal time periods are overlapping. In our experience, these Muhurats should be rejected.
Bad Choghadiya Muhurats
Bad Choghadiya names are Kaal Vela, Vaar Vela, Udveg and Kaal Ratri. Auspicious work should be avoided during Vaar Vela, Kaal Vela, Udveg as mentioned by all Muhurat Principles. Kaal Ratri is malefic of all and must be avoided. Kaal Vela and Vaar Vela come in the daytime while Kaal Ratri comes during night time. If Good Choghadiya is overlapping with Bad Choghadiya then that Muhurat should be avoided.
When is Choghadiya Good or Bad?
To find good of bad Choghadiya, first, you need to find the planets that rule each of the day's Choghadiya. Yes, each Choghadiya is influenced by a planet. It is the characteristics of the planet that decides good or bad Choghadiya. Let us understand how? The first Choghadiya Muhurt on any day is ruled by the weekday lord. Like on Monday, the first Muhurta time is ruled by the Moon followed by Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, and last Choghadiya Muhurat will again be ruled by Moon. Likewise, on Tuesdays, the first Choghadiya will belong to Mars, followed by Sun and so on and the last one will again belong to Mars. In the above examples, we found good or bad Choghadiyas of the day time only. Likewise, we can find them for the night too.
In Vedic Astrology, Planets are said to have good or bad characteristics. Chogadia ruled by Mercury, Moon, Jupiter, and Venus should be preferred for all types of auspicious work because these are soft and auspicious planets. Chogadia ruled by Sun, Mars, and Saturn should be avoided as far as possible since these are aggressive and cruel planets. Below is the List of all Choghadiyas with significance.
