Raksha Bandhan 2020

The festival of Raksha Bandhan is celebrated on Purnima Tithi of Shravana month. It is a festival which marks the bond of love between brother and sister. The tying of Raksha thread (Raksha Sutra) over the brother’s wrist and applying Tilak with Kesar also empowers our Jupiter. It is highly recommended that the holy thread should be tied during Aparahna time which is late afternoon. It should never be tied during Bhadra time.

On this day, Moon will be transiting through Uttar Phalguni nakshatra and Shravana Nakshatra. Anything which is done in Uttar-Phalguni culminates into a long-term success. This nakshatra is ruled by Vishwa devas and Lord Ganesha is also associated with this nakshatra. Therefore, if you want to start anything new then this day is really fruitful. Shravana nakshatra will be active from 7:20 am morning. It is ruled by Lord Vishnu himself. The nakshatra is very helpful to link people together. This nakshatra is closely related to ears which enables listening and increase in understanding. This brings harmony in relationships as we are receptive to each other thoughts. Also, Moon who is the planet for shravana is very active on the Poornima Tithi showering his blessing and free flow of energy during the day. But as Moon will be forming conjunction with Saturn too, we should try to stay away from any form of negativity and pessimism. Embrace happiness and optimism today. Also, instead of only speaking, you should listen to others. This will help in forming a greater connection with your family and friends on this festival. Following the tradition of Raksha Bandhan rectifies negative energies in horoscope and fills your life with positive vibrations.
