What is Saptami in Tamil Calendar?
It is best to avoid making any important business or emotional choices during this time. Most of the rituals and ceremonies are postponed during Saptami as well, which can often cause conflicts in large family gatherings. As a result, festivities may have to be rescheduled at a later day or time when luck is more favorable towards such ventures.
The Moon presence in this phase also makes carrying out beneficial activities difficult since it usually decreases one’s ability to concentrate properly on the task at hand. However, these restrictions do not necessarily apply if an individual chooses to risk potential harm on their journey towards success, in spite of knowing that their chances might go sour due to bad omens present according to astrological calculations.
