shubh mahurat

Certain auspicious Nakshatra, Tithi, day, and time are considered auspicious Shubh Muhurat for marriage in Vedic astrology. Only eleven Nakshatra among twenty-eight Nakshatra and two Tithi, Akshaya Tritiya and Dev Uthani Ekadashi are favorable.

Akshaya Tritiya, Dev Uthani Ekadashi Tithi which comes once every year is generally considered Shubh for deciding Shubh Muhurat for marriage.

Abhijit Muhurat is also considered Shubh Muhurat for marriage in Vedic astrology.

However, there are some unfavorable Nakshatra, Tithi, period(time) during the combustion of Shukra or Guru in (Shukra Ast or Guru Asta) and some other Ashubh Yoga periods, which are avoided for marriage in Vedic astrology.

The first quarter (Charana) of Magha and Moola and the last quarter of Revati are known as Ati Gand Mool Nakshatra, one should avoid this Nakshatra for the auspicious marriage Muhurat.

The presence of any one of the three Uttara Nakshatra is an auspicious day for all the auspicious events.

Some astrologers believe that Uttara Phalguni nakshatra should be avoided for marriage.

During auspicious Navaratri days, marriage can be performed, if necessary.

However,  Pushya Nakshatra is inauspicious for marriage, though it is the most auspicious Nakshatra for all the events. This is an exception to the general rule.
