Karva Chauth, which is celebrated on the fourth day of the Krishna Paksha of the Hindu Kartik month, falls on October 19 this year that is, today. It is the first time in the last 100 years that we have 4 shubh yog on the day of Karva Chauth.
This time the festival of Karva Chauth is falling on Wednesday in Rohini Nakshatra. According to astrologers, the moon rise in Rohini Nakshatra today and will stay in its high rashi (zodiac) Taurus while Buddh will remain in Virgo.
On this same day we have two more auspicious events. One is Ganesh Chaturthi and the other auspicious event is Krishna ji ki Rohini Nakshatra.
Wednesday is the day of both Lord Ganesh and Lord Krishna.
With 4 shubh yogs falling on the same day, this Karva Chauth will prove very beneficial. Astrologers say that the ladies who observe the fast today will not only be blessed with longer lives of their husbands but also with the blessing of a child.
Predictions by astrologers say that the moon would rise at around 8:55 p.m. in Rohini Nakshatra. Since the moon will rise in Rohini Nakshatra it is believed that it will help in binding the husband-wife duos closely and will bring prosperity in homes. Also you are likely to get the most benefit of any good work done today.
It is also auspicious to worship Lord Ganesha today.
Happy Karva Chauth to all in Jaipur and beyond!
