What is Panchak?

Panchak Yoga is a very inauspicious time period or Dosha period of five days when the moon is positioned in the last two zodiac signs, Aquarius and Pisces. This is not a favorable stellar combination and it is advisable to not start any important work or perform any auspicious events such as marriage, mundan, Griha Pravesh, Upnayan Sanskar, house warming, welcome of new bride etc, during Panchak Yog.

What is Panchak in astrology?

Panchak meaning: The word Panchak refers to a group of five. As per Vedic astrology, Panchak is created due to the union of 5 constellations or Nakshatras, called Panchak Nakshatras. They are- Dhanishtha, Poorva Bhadrapada, Shatbhisha, Uttara Bhadrapada and Revati Nakshatra. 

Panchak Yoga begins when the Moon enters Aquarius and the third phase of Dhanishta commences. Afterward, the moon transits through the other Nakshatras- Shatbhisha, Purva Bhadrapada, Uttara Bhadrapada and Revati respectively. It takes 5 days for the moon to complete the journey through these Nakshatras. Panchak Yog occurs repetitively after a period of every 27 days.
