Karwa Chauth 2022: According to the Panchang, the fast of Karwa Chauth is observed on the Chaturthi Tithi of Krishna Paksha of Kartik month. On this day women observe Nirjala fast for the long life of their husband and happy married life. This year Karva Chauth is going to be very special. Because this year Venus is setting. According to the scriptures, it is forbidden to do any kind of auspicious and demanding work when Venus is setting. Venus will be setting till 20th November. In such a situation, any kind of shaving-piercing, planetary entry, marriage etc. is prohibited. Therefore, if you are observing the fast of Karva Chauth for the first time, then take special care of these things.
According to Pandit Jagannath Guruji, on the day of Karva Chauth, married women observe a Nirjala fast for the long life and health of their husbands. Mother Parvati and Lord Shiva are worshiped on this day. Along with this, after observing the fast for the whole day, in the evening after seeing the moon and offering Arghya, the fast is broken.
The Chaturthi Tithi of Karva Chauth will start from 02:03 pm on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, and will end on October 13, 2022, at 02:58 pm on Thursday. Therefore, keeping the fast of Karva Chauth on 13th October would be auspicious.
Is it right to do Udyan of Karva Chauth this year?
According to Pandit Jagannath Guruji, many women perform Udyapan after fasting for 16 consecutive years, but many stay for a lifetime. If you are also thinking of doing Udyapan this time, then you can. Because Karva Chauth is related to Moon. Therefore, the setting of Venus does not make any difference.
Newly married women fast or not
Karva Chauth is about to start the fast from this year, she can also start the fast from this year itself. Because the point of not fasting due to the setting of Venus is baseless. So newly married women can keep this fast without any hesitation.
Why Venus is inauspicious
According to the scriptures, when Venus sets, its effect falls in all kinds of auspicious and auspicious works. Because many Muhurtas are calculated according to the position of Venus. But Karva Chauth is related to the Moon, so the setting of Venus does not make any difference.
