                                                                                                        Electional Auspicious Hours for Starting a House 


A house is the cherished dream of every man. After one gets a job and gets married, the next step is the acquisition of a house.
Those who follow the Wisdom of the Heavens will be careful about selecting auspicious times for building a house. Auspicious electional hours are selected to avoid inauspicious events, which may plague the family later on.
Griha Arambha or Time for construction of new house
Certain sidereal months are to be avoided for starting Griha Arambha, for inhabiting a house.The sidereal month of Cancer, for example. The Cardinal Signs, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Pisces are to be avoided and the other 8 signs are auspicious.
The Sun in the Pleiades constellation, Karthika, in Cancer, in mutable Signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces - are all to be avoided.

There should be Chathurtha Shuddhi, that is, malefics should not inhabit the House of Home and Happiness, the Fourth.
Amongst the Half Lunations ( Karanas ), Simha ( Lion ) and Vyaghra  ( Tiger ) are to be avoided. Mars in the Eighth is also inauspicious. So is Sun in the Ascendant.
Sunday and Tuesday are to be avoided. The 3,5, 7 stars of the house owner should be renounced. Also his Karthru Doshas. Also Gulika Rising and Moon in 6,8,12 houses.

Griha Pravesha or Time of  Entry into the New House
Three sidereal months, Cancer, Virgo and Aquarius are inauspicious which means that the other nine months are auspicious.
