Some other yogas and general observations:
a. Abhijit muhurta: Divide dinmaan in 15 parts. 8th muhurta is good and can be safely used if nothing else is possible. Add Sunrise time in Sun set time and half it. 24 minutes on either side is abhijit muhurta.
b. Aadal yoga: happens when Moon's nakshatra is 2nd, 7th, 9th, 14th, 16th, 21st, 23rd, 28th, from Sun's nakshatra (including abhijit nakshatra). Avoid military activities, agricultural and stone works. Not bad for marriage & other samskaras.
c. Viclal yoga: happens when Moon's nakshatra is 3rd, 6th, 10th, 13th, 17lh, 20th, 24th, 27th from Sun's nakshatra (including abhijit nakshatra). It gives failure in all ventures.
d. Holashtaka: 8 days before Holi should be avoided in marriage and other auspicious ceremonies
e. Hora muhurta: Divide dinmaan into twelve equal parts and similarly divide ratrimaan in twelve equal parts. Thus we get 24 subdivisions of a day called horas. One hora = 1 hour (app.). First hora of the day is ruled by the day lord, next by lord of the 6th day lord and next b\ 6th from that lord in the sequence. (Starting from 1st hora, go as per alternate weekday; backwards). Good work in a benefic hora and bad work commenced in a malefic hora gives good results. One should not commence any auspicious work in the hora of the planet that is inimical to ones birth star lord.
f. Rahu kalam: about 1. 14 hours in a day belong to Rahu kala. No auspicious work should be started in this period. Divide dinmaan in 8 equal parts. 8lh part on Sunday (4.30pm. to 6.00pm. 2nd part on Monday (7.30am. to 9.00am.) 7th part on Tuseday (3.00pm. to 4.30pm.) 5th part Wednesday (12.00 to 1.30pm.) 6th part on Thursday (1.30pm. to 3.00pm.), 4th part on Frida
(10.30am. to 12.00 noon) and 3rd part on Saturday (9.00am. to 10.30am.) are Rahu kalas.
g. Pushya phala: During pushya nakshatra doshas of yogini, chandrayuti, tara, Jupiter's trans' bhadra (vishti), Rahu are cancelled. Guru pushya is considered to be the best, Ravi pushya next. Pushya anyway is however, inauspicious for marriage ceremony only.
h. Muhurta: divide dinmaan in 15 equal parts. Each part is known as muhurta of the da Likewise, divide ratrimaan in 15 equal parts. Each part is known as muhurta of the night.
i. Dakshinayana - A solar year contains two Ayanas: It is the period from the Sun's entrance i the sign Cancer to his entrance into the sign of Sagittarius and his crossing the last amsha of sign is called the Dakshinayana. In other words, when Sun covers six signs, it is the period Dakshiyana and takes six months. It is also called Yamyayana. Lord of Ayan is Sun. Dakshinay is the period of Asuras. All the auspicious actions are avoided during the period of Dakshina> because it becomes weak due to Sun's defective rays. During this period Sun's movement is tow south.
j. Uttaraayana - A solar year contains two Ayanas: It is the period from the Sun's entrance into sign Capricorn to his entrance into the sign of Gemini and his crossing the last amsha of this is called the Uttarayana. In other words, when Sun covers six signs, it is the period of Uttaraayana and takes six months. It is also called Saumayayana. Lord of Ayan is Sun. During this period S movement is towards north. It is the period of Gods. All the auspicious actions are to be d during Saumayayana as the Sun has bright and pure rays and is auspicious,
k. Sankrantis - The time of entrance of a planet from one sign into the other sign i.e the time oft ingress of a planet is 'Sankranti kala' known as 'Sankranti'. In this way there are Sankrantis of all the planets but in Electional Astrology only the 12 Sankrantis of sun are considered, also known 'Sui-ya Sankranti'. Normally, 16 ghatis which occur before and 16 ghatis which occur after the ti of Sankranti is called 'Punya Kaala' and is rejected in commencing an auspicious deed. It considered good for donations, havans and prayers etc.
As per sloka 79 of chapter 6 of Muhurta Chintamani the three days before and after and day in the middle of Sankranti of the signs Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and of Libra are not accepta in doing good deeds.
As per sloka of Muhurta Chintamani, 16 ghatis before and 16ghatisa
the Sankranti of sun is the Punya Kaal or the holy time. If Sankranti begins before mid night then the later half of the previous day, and if it begins after mid night, then the first half of the next day is Punya Kaala.
Three ghatis before sunrise and 3 ghatis after sunset is 'Sandhya Kaala'. If sun enters sign Cancer during three ghatis before sunrise, the 'Punya Kaala' will be next day, but if sun enters sign Capricorn during three ghatis after sunset, the 'Punya Kaala' will be, on the previous day.
When sun enters signs 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 12 after sun-set but before mid night, the 'Punya kaala' will on 2nd half of the previous day. But if sun enters these signs after midnight but before sunrise, the 'Punya kaala' will on 1st half of next day.
When sun enters signs 2, 4, 5, 8, 11 'Punya kaala' will be for 16 ghatis before sankranti; When sun enters signs 1 or 7 'Punya kaala' will be for 8 ghatis before and 8 ghatis after sankranti; and when sun enters signs 3, 6, 9, 10, 12 'Punya kaala' will be for 16 ghatis after samkranti.
There are auspicious and inauspicious effects to human being from Sankranti according to nakshatra in which they are born. As per sloka 18 of chapter 3, if the birth nakshatra falls in 3 nakshatras from the nakshatra which is before the nakshatra in which a Sankranti occurs, then in that month there will be travelling; if it falls in the next 6 nakshatras, there will be happiness and comfort; if in next 3 nakshatras there will be pain; if in next 6 nakshatras, there will be obtainment of clothes; if in next 3 nakshatras, then in the month there will be loss of wealth; and if in next 6 nakshatras there will be gain of wealth.
If there if no Sankranti of Sun in a lunar month, then there is 'adhikmaasa' (additional month) and if there are two Sankrantis of the sun in it, then there is 'kshaya Maasa' (or lost month). 'Adhikmaasa' and 'Kshaya Maasa' are avoided in muhurtas.
