Moodami 2015-2016, Guru Moodam & Shukra Moodam dates

Moodami or Moodam or Lop is an inauspicious period during which no shubh karya or auspicious program or function can be performed. In 2015-2016, there are one Guru Moodam period and one Shukra Moodami period.

There are two types of Moodam in Hindu Astrology – Guru Moodam or Guru Moodami or Guru Lop and Shukra Moodam or Shukra Moodami or Shukra lop.

Moodami means the darkness in Sanskrit. When the grahas (planets) Brihaspati or Guru (Jupiter) and Shukra (Venus) near the Sun (Surya), the Moodami occurs. The planet which nears the Sun loses its energy and power. The darkness occurs in the time of planetary motion.

Shukra moodam occurs when Shukra graha (the planet of Venus) reaches close to Sun, loses its energy and strength and becomes malefic and inauspicious.

    We are staying in USA and we are buying a new home before october 20th 2014. We came to know that there is Shukra moodami till December 4th 2014 and we thought of postponing the buy date but the sellers are not willing to postpone. Hence we decided to buy it and move on a good day. Requesting you to kindly help us by letting us know which would be good day for our gruhapravesham.

    We came to know that October 30 2014 is good for our names and nakshtra. But again as there is Shukra moodami till Dec 4th 2014, we are really confused on whether we can move on OCtober 30th or not. Please suggest us.
