What is Tarabalam?

The moon orbits each house two and a half days and completes the full cycle of 12 houses in thirty days. Within each house, we have different nakshatras with 9 padas each making the total 27 nakshatras in all 12 houses. Moon resides in each nakshatra pada for a specified time. The nakshatra of the day is the nakshatra in which the Moon resides in the day. This nakshatra is compared to the Janma Nakshatra (Birth star) to derive the Tarabalam of the day.

Why Tarabalam is important?

Tarabalam determines the auspiciousness of the muhurat to perform a specific activity. These activities can be starting a new business, travel, ceremonies like marriage, joining a new job etc., It is a combination of Janma Nakshatra and day’s nakshatra which adds strength to a muhurat.

Not all nakshatras are good for the Janma Nakshatra. The auspiciousness of Nakshatra of the day combined with the Janma Nakshatra is determined by the Tarabalam.

How Tarabalam is calculated?

Calculate the number of stars from the Janma Nakshatra to the Nakshatra on the needed day. Then divide the number by 9 and get the remainder. The remainder will be the tarabalam of the muhurat or of the needed day. Refer to the below types of tarabalam with the remainder value.

Types of Tarabalam

Tarabalam consists of 9 types

  1. Janma Tara
  2. Sampath Tara
  3. Vipat Tara
  4. Kshema Tara
  5. Pratyak Tara
  6. Saadhana Tara

Among the 9 types of tarabalam, 2, 4, 6,8 and 9 Nakshatras are favourable and auspicious for muhurat. The other Nakshatras 1, 3, 5 and 7 are not favourable and inauspicious for any muhurat.
