The celebration of 𝐆𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐡 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐢 in Sanatan Dharma holds a significant place, with various interpretations rooted in astrological and mythological contexts. According to the 𝐒𝐡𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐆𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐡 𝐏𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐧 and 𝐒𝐡𝐫𝐞𝐞 𝐌𝐮𝐝𝐠𝐚𝐥 𝐏𝐮𝐫𝐚𝐧, it is believed that Vighnharta Shree Ganesh ji was born during 𝐌𝐚𝐝𝐡𝐲𝐚𝐧𝐚𝐡 𝐊𝐚𝐚𝐥, under the Swathi Nakshatra, and with Simha Lagn, accompanied by the unique alignment of five planets in one house.
In adherence to these specific astrological conditions, it is traditionally observed that Ganesh Chaturthi should be celebrated when these celestial circumstances align. 𝐈𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐲𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟑, 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐭𝐡𝐢 𝐭𝐢𝐭𝐡𝐢 𝐟𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐬 𝐨𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝟏𝟗𝐭𝐡 𝐨𝐟 𝐒𝐞𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫, 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐚𝐮𝐬𝐩𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐨𝐮𝐬 𝐩𝐮𝐣𝐚 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐬𝐩𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝟏𝟏:𝟒𝟕 𝐀𝐌 𝐭𝐨 𝟏𝟐:𝟑𝟏 𝐏𝐌.
In accordance with these beliefs, it is noted that performing the puja in the evening may not be ideal, as the Chaturthi tithi is expected to conclude at 13:45 PM, and the Vishaka Nakshatra will also be prevalent at that time.
It is our hope that your Ganesh Chaturthi celebration in 2023 is marked by reverence and blessings as you observe these astrologically significant customs.
