According to Vedic astrology, Chandrashtama denotes a day when the Moon transits the 8th house from your Moon sign. The word ‘Chandrashtama’ is derived from two words – ‘Chandra’ meaning Moon and ‘Ashta’ meaning eight. Moon takes two and a half days to move from one moon sign to the next and hence, this period is known as Chandrashtama for the particular moon sign natives. Chandrashtama days are generally considered inauspicious to commence any activity.
Moon exerts predominant expressions and frequencies on your mind and unconsciously affects during the Chandrashtama days. General effects during Chandrashtama include confusion, indecisiveness, absent mindedness, depression, and fear.
