Is Akshaya Tritiya 2016 good for marriage & other auspicious events?

Is Akshaya Tritiya 2016 good for marriages? Is it auspicious for Gruhapravesh and other events? In 2016, Akshaya Tritiya date is May 9.

I am regularly getting these queries from visitors of Hindupad. Akshaya Tritiya 2016 (May 9) is not good and inauspicious for marriage or wedding, gruhapravesh (house warming ceremony), and for starting house construction.

There are some rare planetary conjugations (grah sahyog) which considered inauspicious for marriages on Akshaya Tritiya 2016.

Now in 2016, nothing is fine for marriages and grihpravesh. As per the analysts and astrologers more than 50,000 thousands marriages are held every year on Akha Teej in major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Pune, Lucknow, Surat, and Ahmadabad.

There is Shukra Moodam (Shukra Lop) during Akshaya Tritiya in 2016. Shukra Moodam begins on April 30 and ends on 13 July 2016. Moodami (Shukra Moodam / Guru Moodami) is not auspicious for marriages, Gruhapravesh and any other functions.

Many North Indian Hindi calendars, Marathi calendars, Gujarati calendars & Uttaradhi Mutt Panchangams and almost all Indian calendars indicated Akshaya Tritiya 2016 as an inauspicious day for marriage & Upanayanam.

Here are the Hindu marriage dates 2016

      As per the standard Hindu Panchang, 6 May 2011 (Akshaya Tritiya) is a good day for all auspicious events. You need to consult any local pundit for details on Grihpravesh puja.
