Moodami 2021-2022 | 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 2021-2022, there are one Guru Moodam period and two 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.
