Have to move into a new house. Mom is strictly against doing it on a date that is not auspicious. I am generally ok following the guidelines but this time having financial consequences if I delay moving until that auspicious date. Are there any workarounds?

Were you born on an auspicious date?

That’s exactly what I was thinking. And I guess that’s how some people have better luck than others.

Very simple - pay pundit Ji $151 and tell him why the date when you want to move is most auspicious and watch it work :-)

I don’t understand the purpose of this post at all. You call this as a superstition but still want to find a workaround ? And, you say you “believe” these things have meanings but you question their purpose. I am not sure you are trying to act smart, or very confused genuinely. This group already has turned out cynical in many topics, and post like these only adds fuel to them. Keep it simple. If you don’t believe in it then don’t follow and don’t spend time in finding a workaround. But if you do believe in it then ask pandit, or someone who you think is a master. But don’t mix all in one.

Yes everything that’s said and done by our elders have meaning. Either it’s scientific or it stands true for facilities available at that time. We can discard the latter ones but scientific ones not so much. I don’t know where does this ‘auspicious dates’ thing stands.

In Hindu calendar there are general “don’t do days” like Navami, Chaturdashi, Fullmoon and New moon. Just avoid those days and go for dashami ekadashi or any other day. Perform Ganesh puja as first ritual, they say any obstacles will be removed with that puja. Then go for the move.

Is the financial set back huge? If you’re able to cover it, pick the auspicious date, IMO.

Dont tell her when you are moving! If she lives with you then you’ll just have to put your foot down

Find a pundit, pay him to tell your mom the day of your moving is auspicious. My friends have done it with rishta kundali match.

Thats why I can never have my parents live with me

I don't think you are looking for real options.

Find your priest and tell him the date is fixed, he'll make it happen. Congrats on the new house!

Find a pandit who will make it an auspicious date

I’m guessing you’re hindu? I’m not overtly religious but one thing i have learnt is that there is a lot of scope of jugaad in hinduism. You’re manglik? Get married to a tree! And as MD1 mentioned, priests can make anything happen for a price. They’re the gateway to the lord! Honestly my in laws are super religious and that’s how I’ve been able to work around their views

I started a few new business ( with debt) this year, and because the way my taxes looked with other losses it looks like I didn't make a ton of money. Now my credit dropped from 800 to 720 and I'm having trouble getting credit. Despite having a perfect payment history and fully able to cover all liabilities. Any way to get the credit up. If I pay off my liabilities then my credit history gets shot with young accounts. What's the best way to handle this?
