Solar Shravan month begins when the Sun enters into Cancer sign in transit. This transit is going to happen on 16 July this year. It is also known as ‘Shravan Sankranti’. In our Hindu mythology, Shravan month has a very unique spiritual and religious importance and it is considered as the best month to worship and please Lord Shiva. Devotees of Lord Shiva go long distance on their foot to bring holy ‘Ganga Jal’ and come back walking to pour it on ShivLing on the Chaturdashi tithi of this month. This ceremony is popularly known as ‘Kanvar Yatra’ among people. On the last day of Lunar Shravan month ‘Jhulan Yatra’ of Lord Krishna is celebrated across India and abroad along with ‘Raksha Bandhan’.
The Sun is given the status of King in the council of planets in the zodiac. Cancer sign is ruled by the Moon, who enjoys the status of queen in the cosmic council of planets, with whom the Sun maintains a very friendly relationship. However, the Sun rules the fifth sign in the natural zodiac and fifth house is one of the ‘Trikona’ houses in the horoscope. So, presence of the Sun, fifth house lord, in the fourth house, a ‘Kendra Sthaan’, in Cancer sign create a very powerful ‘Raaj Yog’ in the zodiac. This ‘Raaj Yog’ fructifies for the natives of Aries and Scorpio Moon signs, where this ‘Kendra-Trikona Raaj Yog’ will be formed. ‘Trikona’ houses are considered as “Lakshmi Sthaan” and ‘Kendra’ houses are known as “Vishnu Sthaan”, as per Hindu System of Vedic Astrology. Combinations of these house lords form a very strong ‘Wealth Producing Yog’ for the native.
