Most people consult an astrologer before a wedding, purchasing land or building a house. Another crucial decision that can be taken with the help of astrology is buying a vehicle. Apart from the time of making the purchase, several other decisions taken in connection with the vehicle would prove crucial.
According to astrology, a car or bike is closely linked to the horoscope of a person. The fourth planet in a person’s horoscope can tell whether he or she would own a vehicle or not.
When making a vehicle purchase, the biggest anxiety of the owner would be related to accidents. Astrology says that the erratic behavior of Rahu and Ketu is the cause of mishaps. When both these celestial bodies reach the same path in a horoscope, accidents are likely.
Colour of the car
Even though the colour of a car depends on the owner’s tastes, remembering a few astrological points would be helpful. Each colour is ideal for a particular person. The colour can be identified by checking the horoscope and position of the moon during birth. A person can also decide the colour of the car by the planet ruling their zodiac sign.
Certain facts have to be taken into account while applying for the registration number of the car. Each person’s lucky number and birth date are linked. For example, if he or she was born on the 16th of a month, the lucky number is 1 + 6 = 7. The ideal registration number of a vehicle can be either the lucky number or 9.
In case the registration number is allotted by the authorities, add each digit of the number. If the sum is either the lucky number or 9, the registration number can be chosen. Most fancy number would be giving this result. Take 9999 or 3303 for instance. They give 9. A happy drive awaits owners if this method is followed.
Day of vehicle purchase
The day of bringing the car home is also crucial. The time of visiting the showroom for taking possession of the vehicle may be decided on the basis of the moon’s position. The ideal time is five days before and an equal period after the full moon day.
Another favourable time is 6-10 days before and after the full moon day. But care needs to be taken to avoid taking possession of the vehicle 11-15 days after the full moon day.
Generally, people are aware that taking possession of a vehicle during the period of ‘Rahu kaalam’ is inauspicious. One-and-a-half hours each day are set aside as Raahu kalam. They are:
Sunday – 4.30 pm to 6 pm
Monday – 7.30 am to 9 am
Tuesday – 3 pm to 4.30 pm
Wednesday – 12 noon to 1.30 pm
Thursday – 1.30 pm to 3 pm
Friday – 10.30 am to 12 noon
Saturday – 9 am to 10.30 am
Deities in car
Keeping tiny idols or figures of deities in vehicles is a common practice. The most suitable God for the purpose is Ganapathy, who is related to Ketu. Vigneshwara can be propitiated to prevent accidents or other dangerous situations.
The new vehicle can be taken on its first trip to a place of worship. Driving to a temple dedicated to either Vigneshwara or Hanuman and conducting vehicle ‘puja’ are beneficial.
