In order to know the auspicious hours favoured by Time, Electional Astrology was formulated.
Certain Horas or hours are found to be inauspicious. Nava Doshas or the Nine Afflictions are inauspicious and so is Chandra Astama ( The Moon's transit of the Lunar 8th ). Chandra Ashtama has been defined as the Black Hole of Electional Astrol
The Electional Ascendant
This is the Ascendant for the Event. If, for example, one fellow wants to start a business venture, the favourable time for starting that venture becomes the Ascending Degree.
The Moon should not be in 6,8,12 houses from the Electional Ascendant. Venusian aspect is not acceptable. The 8th Lunation, Ashtami is not considered auspicious but Krishna Ashtami ( 8th Lunation during the Dark Fortnight ) is considered good for marital purposes.
Aries rising is not considered auspicious for marriage. Scorpio is detested for the same purpose.
Jupiter in Leo is considered very auspicious.
We have elucidated some basic electional principles. We have incorporated 45 afflictions or Doshas in our Electional Astrology Software.
