2021 Lagna Muhurat for Lakshmi Puja

Most of the religious books Dharma Sindhu, Nirnaya Sindhu and Vratraj suggest Lakshmi Puja on Diwali during Pradosh time after sunset while Amavasya Tithi prevails. If Amavasya Tithi is getting over before sunset then Lakshmi Puja is done on Chaturdashi Tithi when Amavasya prevails after sunset. As most of these religious books don’t mention Muhurat for Puja timings based on Vedic astrology, many astrologers provide various auspicious Puja timings for Lakshmi Puja on Diwali.

Although there are various opinions on the best Muhurat for Lakshmi-Ganesha Puja on Diwali, the most astrologers agree that Lakshmi Puja should be done during fixed Lagna. The Lagna is most significant factor while considering the Muhurat for most activities. In Vedic astrology there are twelve Lagna in twenty-four hours and those are categorized as fixed, movable and common. The following four Lagna(s) are considered fixed in nature and are considered good for Lakshmi Puja.

  1. Vrishchika Lagna
  2. Kumbha Lagna
  3. Vrishabha Lagna
  4. Simha Lagna

As Goddess Lakshmi is movable and never stays at a single place for long, there are always attempts to make Her fixed or prolong Her stay at one place by worshipping Her during a fixed Lagna. It is believed that worshipping Goddess Lakshmi during fixed Lagna would make Her stable or at least prolong Her stay at one place.

As per legends, Goddess Lakshmi came out of the milky ocean on the day of Dhantrayodashi and chose Lord Vishnu as Her husband on the day of Diwali. Hence Diwali Amavasya is considered the most appropriate day to appease the Goddess of wealth and prosperity.

On the day of Amavasya during Diwali festivities, Vrishchika Lagna prevails in morning, Kumbha Lagna during afternoon, Vrishabha Lagna during evening and Simha Lagna during midnight. Hence Vrishabha Lagna is considered the most significant as it overlaps with Pradosh just after sunset. However due to some unavoidable circumstances, one is not able to perform Lakshmi Puja during Pradosh one can chose fixed Lagna Muhurat available during Amavasya.

We have given all fixed Lagna Muhurat for Diwali Puja. People can choose the most suitable Muhurat for themselves after going through below categorization of Puja timings.

  1. Vrishchika Lagna (Scorpio) – Vrishchika Lagna prevails during early morning on Diwali. Lakshmi Puja during Vrishchika Lagna is most suitable for temples, hospitals, hotels, schools and colleges. People who are involved in public affairs, politics, various TV and film artists, show anchors, insurance agents should also worship Goddess Lakshmi during Vrishchika Lagna.
  2. Kumbha Lagna (Aquarius) – Kumbha Lagna prevails during afternoon on Diwali. Lakshmi Puja during Kumbha Lagna is suitable for sick people, people in debt, those who want to get rid of bad influence of Lord Shani, those who are losing money in business and have accrued huge debt in business.
  3. Vrishabha Lagna (Taurus) – Vrishabha Lagna prevails during evening on Diwali. Lakshmi Puja during Vrishabha Lagna is the most suitable time for those who stay in family, married, having kids, middle class, lower class, rural folks, farmers, salaried people and businessmen engaged in all sorts of work. This is the most significant Muhurta for Lakshmi Puja on Diwali.
  4. Simha Lagna (Leo) – Simha Lagna prevails during mid-night on Diwali. Lakshmi Puja during Simha Lagna is the most suitable time to appease Goddess Lakshmi for hermits, saints, world renouncers and Tantrik community.
