Astrological Significance of Akshay Tritiya

It is also believed that the Sun and the Moon are in their brightest form on the day of Akshay Tritiya.

In Vedic astrology, three lunar phases are believed to be the most auspicious periods of the year. The Chaitra Shukla Pradipta (the 1st tithi of the bright half of the moon in the month of Chaitra), Vijaya Dashmi, and of course, Akshay Tritiya.

These three days are considered the ‘complete’ auspicious muhurats, whereas the Kartika Shukla Pradipta (the 1st tithi of the bright half of the moon in Kartika) is considered the ‘half’. Together, these three are called ‘Sade Teen Muhurat’ (Three and a half muhurat).
