Saturday, March 13 is the new moon day of Phalgun. When this date occurs on Saturday, it is called Shani Sashri Amavasya. According to Hindi Panchang, there are two parts Shukla Paksha and Krishna Paksha in a month. One party lasts 15 days. Lunar increases in Shukla Paksha and Lunar decreases in Krishna Paksha. The moon becomes completely invisible on Amavasya. Shukla Paksha of Falgun Paksha will start from Sunday.
According to Ujjain’s astrologer Pt Manish Sharma, there are sixteen arts of the moon. Sixteenth art is called ama. When Sun and Moon are together in the same zodiac, then Amavasya is the date. On March 13, the Sun and the Moon will be in Aquarius.
In relation to Amavasya, it is written in Skandpuran that-
Ama Shodha Bhagain Devi Prokta Mahakala.
Sanstita Parma Maya Dehinam Dehdharini.
This means that Ama has been called the Mahakala of Chandra, it has the powers of all the sixteen arts of Chandra. This art does not decay and rise.
