Griha Pravesh Muhurat in July, August, September, October 2023

It is considered inauspicious to perform Griha Pravesh Puja, or any other auspicious ceremonies, during these four months (called Chaturmas) which lasts from 2nd July to 11th November in 2023.

Performing any positive events will bring negative energies, health issues, and financial loss to your home as it is believed that Lord Vishnu (also called Vastu Purush) goes into a state of deep meditation (Yoga Nidra) during this period.

  1. Nutan Griha Pravesh (for a newly-constructed home) - it’s best to wait out these 4 months and look for an auspicious Griha Pravesh date after November.
  2. Sapoorva Griha Pravesh (for a rented home) - if you are unable to avoid moving into the rented space, consult an astrologer to find a favorable muhurat.
