    Vaikasi is the second solar month and is equivalent to Edava Malayalam of Vrishabha Sun Sign Month. But Andhra Karnataka follow Chandra Mana Masams which are based on Amavasyas ending on this month. That is the month ending on Amavasya in Vaikasi / Vrishabha Sun sign will be Vaishakha etc. You can generate both the dates here online
