Significance of Pushya Nakshatra



Talk about Pushya Nakshatra and something that immediately comes to the mind is gold. The significance of the day is the favorable alignment of astrological stars, which is considered special for beginning new ventures and purchases. When Pushya Nakshatra falls on a Thursday it is considered even more auspicious and it is referred as Guru Pushya Nakshatra.

Pushya Nakshatra occurs several times in a year in the Hindu calendar. Most people opt for Gurupushya Nakshatra day and ignore the normal days.

According to Hindu astrological beliefs the favorable alignment of the stars on this Pushya Nakshatra day results in prosperity, success and happiness. Therefore it is considered to be the most auspicious day in a year to make investments and purchases.

Thanks to the effective campaign conducted by Jewellery shops, Pushya Nakshatra day for many means the right day in the Hindu calendar to buy gold ornaments. In India, gold is still considered to be an ideal investment and many people make it a point to purchase gold, gems and jewelry on this day.

Pushya means ‘to nourish’ and therefore a person can think beyond gold investment on this day. Nowadays there are several better opportunities of investment other than gold.

Other important days for buying gold in a year according to Hindu calendar are Akshaya Tritiya and Dhanteras.
