Soorya Sankranti or Solar Ingress
When the Sun enters a Zodiacal Sign, it is known as Rasi Sankranti.
16 Nadis ( 16*24 minutes ) before that time is known as Rasi Sankranti
16 Nadis ( 16*24 minutes ) after that is known as Bimba Sankranti.
This time is to be renounced for all electional hours. The time when the Sun enters 0 degress of a Sign is to be known from Mathematical Astrology.
There is another school of thought which says only 7.5 Nadis ( 7.5*24 minutes ) should be renounced.
Bimba Sankranti is good for religious purposes.
Solar Ingress into Cancer and Capricorn
When the Sun enters the First Point of Cancer, initiating the Southern Solstice or Dakshinayana, it is divine time or Punya Kala. Also when he enters the First Degree of Capricorn, initiating the Northern Solstice or Uttarayana. When this Solar Ingress occurs, three days before and after have to be renounced for all electional hours.
Solar Ingress into Aries and Libra
The Solar ingress into Aries intiates Vishu or the Vernal Equinox. This is known as Vishu Punya Kala or the divine time of Aries. When the Sun enters 0 degrees Libra, it initiates the divine time known as Thula Punya Kala. One day before and after these two solar ingresses should be renounced.
For all other solar ingresses into the eight signs, only 30 Nadis ( 30*24 minutes ) should be renounced.
This is Vara Thara Yoga, when certain days of the week and stars coincide. We give the table for Mrityu Yoga.
If these weekdays and stars coincide, it is bad and 3.75 Nadis ( 3.75*24 minutes ) should be renounced.
