Can We Go To See Alliance In Aadi Month?

Aadi Month (July – August) is considered inauspicious by many Tamil communities. Activities like marriage, new openings, engagement and new alliances are avoided in this month. So, can we go to see alliance in Aadi month? No, is the majority answer, but things have changed now and many people do not follow the Aadi do’s and don’ts strictly.

It is now mostly decided by community following. If your region or community follows it then you can follow it.

Traditionally, most people avoid auspicious ceremonies during this period. It is believed that the ceremonies held during this period will not have the blessings of the gods. 

It is believed that Lord Surya (Sun god) changes his direction from north to south in the Aadi month. The next six months from Aadi to Margazhi is the Dakshinayana punyakalam – symbolically the night time of the Devas.
