Energy is everything, and everything we do attracts energy, both positive and negative!

A new home is a tiny slice of heaven on earth! It’s all the heart longs for when entering a new house. You must be wishing for the same. After all, you have put your heart and soul into building it. In light of this, Griha Pravesh's day and time play a crucial role. Therefore, Vastu experts and pandits suggest choosing an auspicious day for the housewarming ceremony to bring positive energy to your abode. You may experience hell instead of heaven in your new home if this aspect is ignored. Many enter their new homes with packers and movers in India, owing to the convenience that comes with them. Consider checking out Shubh Muhurat month-wise for your Griha Pravesh for blissful new beginnings.

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - May 2024

Even the May month falls in between Baisakhi and Jyestha Mash; there is no unique auspicious day in the Month.

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - June 2024

You should ask a renowned astrologer to find a mandatory suitable day to shift in June; since there exists no auspicious day in the Month.

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - July 2024

It’s better to perform Griha Pravesh when the positive energy is at its best to bring prosperity to your and your family members' lives. Unfortunately, there’s no promising date or time available for the housewarming pooja in July, as it is a lunar month.

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - August 2024

According to Vastu, August is also a lunar month. Therefore, Griha Pravesh is prohibited. Consult the Vedic astrologer if you want to move into your new home despite that.

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - September 2024

September is also considered the Lunar New Year. Hence, it’s inauspicious to step into a new house during this time.

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - October 2024

Sorry to say, but again there are no promising days to perform Griha Pravesh as it is again a lunar month. But we have a piece of good news for you! The nine days of holy Shardiya Navratri 2024 will begin on Thu, Oct. 03, and end on Sat, Oct. 12—the most auspicious time for Griha Pravesh. So smile :)

Griha Pravesh Muhurat - November 2024

This is the second-highest favorable and most faithful month to make a shift. According to the Hindu Panchang, 8 bright and promising days are available this month to perform Griha Pravesh and bring auspiciousness and good luck.

The three types of Griha Pravesh:

  1. Apoorva Griha Pravesh – Apoorva is a Sanskrit word. It means one of a kind. It is for those who want to move into their new house for the first time from their existing homes.
  2. Sapoorva Griha Pravesh - Entering the existing flat or house on rent or, if it is on resale, is called Sapoorva Griha Pravesh.
  3. Dwandwah Griha Pravesh – Moving into a damaged house after the renovation work known as Dwandwah Griha Pravesh.

According to the Vedic Shastra, Falgun, Magha, Vaishakh, and Jyeshtha months are believed to be the most promising for the housewarming ritual.

Months when you must not perform Griha Pravesh

Each dawn brings some energy! Some are fruitful, while others are gloomy. Although Shravan, Bhadrapad, Ashwin, and Kartik, also known as Chaturmas, are scared, they are not optimistic from Griha Pravesh's point of view. According to the Vedic manuscripts, all deities, including Lord Vishnu, rest during this period. Hence, performing puja during such a period is a strict no-no. It’s believed that performing such activities could bring bad luck, health problems, and financial loss. Since timing is everything, avoid auspicious and Vastu-associated tasks on:

  1. Lunar Eclipse 
  2. Solar Eclipse 
  3. Lunar Months
  4. When Shukra Tara and Guru Tara set 

Be careful! Moving into a new home before Holi or Dhanteras could bring bad luck —

Holi and Diwali are two significant Hindu festivals. Many property buyers (houses, flats, etc.) wish to celebrate such festivals in their new homes. They have their point! But let us tell you, both periods are not auspicious from the Vedic and Vastu points of view. Every year, an 8-day period called Holashtak is observed before Holi. It starts with the Shukla Paksha of Phalguna and lasts till Holika Dahan. Any auspicious activities, such as marriage, construction, housewarming pooja, etc., are prohibited during this period.

You will be shocked to know that Dhanteras, which marks the beginning of Diwali,  is inauspicious for housewarming. Although one can invest in new properties on this day, the problems begin when you step into your new abode. According to experts, Dhanteras, every year, is observed on the 13th lunar day. Vastu remains in a dormant or inactive state during this time. Therefore, moving into a new house this time is strictly prohibited by Vastu experts. According to them, if one neglects this aspect and steps into their new home, then their bad luck begins. To know more, click here:

Chaitra and Shardiya Navratri — The most auspicious time for Griha Pravesh!

It’s believed that performing the Griha Pravesh ritual or Pooja at the right time wards off evil forces brings positive energy, and bestows good fortune on those living there. Certain times and days are auspicious for Griha Pravesh, while others are not. However, the nine-day-long festival of  Navratri observed twice a year (Chaitra Navratri and Shardiya Navratri), is considered the most auspicious time to perform Griha Pravesh. Moving into a new home at such a time will fill it with happiness, love, and prosperity, letting you experience a piece of paradise on earth. To know more, click here:
