C-section Muhurat Myths and Facts

  • Days like Shivratri, Navratri, Ganesh Chaturthi, Deepawali do not mean excellent muhurta as they are muhurtas for performing those specific religious ceremonies at that designated time and they change dates and timings every year. Some muhurat are parvakala for doing auspicious karma.
  • You cannot get everything excellent when you opt for a c-section muhurat. You go to an astrologer and opt for a C-section muhurta within span of certain days which means that the destiny of child is fixed with the planetary positions available for that particular 15-20 days. Slow moving planets don’t change at all, Saturn,Jupiter, Rahu and ketu will not even change navamsha, some are badly afflicted during that time period, some planets are debilitated during certain days. You cannot change them, these are the limitations and you are given a choice to choose within these limitations.
  • Moon signs and nakshatra can be good and bad depending on conditions prevalent at that particular time. Moola nakshatra will not always be bad, people born on moola nakshatra get 20 years venus dasha in their teenage and early youth because birth took place during ketu dasha as ketu lords moola nakshatra. So there is another side of nakshatra which can be beneficial.
  • Moola nakshatra, Ashlesha nakshatra, jyestha nakshatra etc won’t kill anyone unless they are destined to die as per their own horoscope. The child’s horoscope is just an indicator of these events and it does not cause these events independently. A horoscope is a map showing destinations not a secret weapon killing people.
  • Rahu-Kaala, chogadiya etc do not make much impact on c-section muhurta unless the planetary position, navamsha, dasha all are bad. Rahu-kaala is also considered good for marriage especially Gandharva vivah.
  • You cannot get a super-human with c-section muhurta. The child born will always be according to the promise in horoscope of parents. You cannot have a good child if you are destined to have a bad child because the planetary positions in the 9th month are already fixed and you have choice to select only small fraction of good/bad whatever is available to you during the 9th month or +- 10 days around due date.
  • Having Delivery through Cesarean timing does not always ensure everything good. There will be some very good areas and some very bad areas according to the available planetary positions at that time. We just have the choice to select the good area and the bad area.
  • Broad time windows are not very useful, they may be convenient for doctors. E.g 10:30 to 12:30hrs. 2 hour slot will change a lot of things within the horoscope, 9 navamshas change, degree of ascendant change, placement in bhav chalit change. Nakshatra at cusp of houses change.
  • Those who have done punya karma in this birth will still be able to nullify many bad combinations and still have children at good time. The punya karma of parents often guide the astrologer to select a good time as the astrologer always works through divine channel.
  • It is always good if the mother and father do lot of punya karma when the child is in the womb, it helps in pregnancy and having a good impact on the child. The sanskaras done during pregnancy do affect the growth of child.
