Many Indians make it a point to consult an Best Astrologer before making major decisions. One such decision is buying a car. Some of the important things we all consider before buying a car are:
• Color of the car
• Registration Number
• Day of delivery
• Time for delivery
• Ornaments for decorating the car
• First outing or Pooja at the temple.
Vehicle or Vahana Yoga in astrology
Our horoscope itself can indicate if we have the good fortune to own cars or other vehicles. The fourth house in the person’s birth chart or Lagna Kundli is the one that has to be examined.
Planet Venus (Shukra) is very important in this respect. Venus stands for the good things in life and material comforts. So, if a person has Venus in his/her fourth house, he/she will become the proud possessor of a car. The planets, Rahu and Ketu, indicate accidents. So their position in a horoscope too must be analyzed before buying a car. If they indicate accidents, one should take care and perform some astrological remedies to mitigate the negative effects of Rahu and Ketu.
There are many online sites which can generate birth charts if you enter the date, place, and time of birth. Some of them do it free as well. Based on the birth chart, you can decide which color, registration number, etc. you should choose for your new car.
All of us have our favorite colors, but when buying a car, it is advisable to consult an astrologer who will look at your horoscope and suggest the right color. This will depend on your Rashi or Moon Sign. If the Moon was in Aries when you were born, your Moon Sign is Aries or Mesha. Mars or Kuja is the ruler of Aries, and the favorable colors linked to Mars are red, yellow, and saffron.
More than the car color, some people pay great importance to the car’s registration number. Though the dealer may offer many choices, people prefer something in tune with their lucky number, which is linked to the person’s date of birth. The number 9 is generally believed to be lucky, so numbers that add up to 9 can also be chosen.
Let us say that a person was born on June 12. His/her lucky number would be 3 (1+2). So one can choose a number which yields 3 when all the digits are added together. For example, if the registration number is 7014, when all the digits are added, it comes to 12, and when 1 and 2 are added, it is 3. So this number will be considered lucky for the person. There are also people who are willing to pay a fortune for fancy numbers like 9999, 3303, 2799, etc. because they add up to 9.
Day of delivery
The day on which the car is to be delivered is another important decision as it is astrologically significant. If an auspicious day is not available, people will ask the dealer to postpone the delivery of the car until one is available.
When it comes to favorable months for car delivery, the first half of December or Dhanur Masam and the month of Ashada (July-August) are believed to be inauspicious, so most car dealers do not have many deliveries in this period. But in the months that follow, many cars may be delivered to their owners. The day on which the car is to be delivered depends on the Moon’s position. The auspicious days are given below:
•Good - Up to 5 days before and after full moon day
•Average - 6 to 10 days before and after full moon day
•Not good - 11 to 15 days after full moon day
Time of delivery
Avoid having the car delivered during Rahu kalam, which occurs daily for about one and a half hours.
Car decorations - ornaments or idols
Many cars have small idols stuck on the dashboard. It is very auspicious to have the idol of Lord Ganesha in the car. One reason is that Lord Ganesha is associated with Ketu, who is the karaka of accidents or Mukti. Vigneshwara is also the lord who helps us overcome obstacles, which is another reason why he is preferred.. It is also a sensible idea to have one’s horoscope analyzed by a good astrologer before choosing an idol.
The first outing in the car
After the car has been delivered, one can plan a visit to a temple to get blessings for the car. Any well-known temple is fine for the purpose, but most people usually have the pooja done at a Lord Hanuman or Ganesha temple.
There is no doubt that astrology has a very important role to play when it comes to car purchase. Whether it is for booking the car, or getting it delivered, consulting an astrologer is mandatory for a lot of aspiring car buyers. Buying a car is an important milestone in the journey of a person’s life, for it signifies success and accomplishment, hence nobody wishes to take risks or commit any missteps when making the decision.
