🌟 Unlock Endless Abundance: Akshaya Tritiya May 9-10, 2024

Mark your calendars - an incredibly auspicious and golden day is coming May 9-10, 2024!

Akshaya Tritiya is May 9-10, 2024 this year. This day is one of the most special days out of the entire year and is considered to be incredibly fortunate. I have noted the specific date and hours at the end of this article.

The Sanskrit word Akshaya can be translated as inexhaustible, eternal or never diminishing. Tritiya means third. In this case it Shukla Tritiya; the third day of the waxing (shukla/bright) moon that occurs when the Sun and the Moon are both in their exaltation signs, or strongest constellations.

New ventures, business or personal partnerships which are begun on this auspicious day are said to last for an eternity, and to be blessed with good fortune and success. Starting a business or making an important purchase are good actions on this day. New beginnings of any kind are most auspicious during this time. In India buying gold on this day is traditional.

"There is a wondrous kind of poverty that only saints know, a poverty which is made from giving away riches and power." - Kahlil Gibran

Akshaya Tritiya: Abundance, Generosity, and Auspicious Timing

Akshaya Tritiya is an excellent day to share our abundance with others. Donating time, food, necessities or money to your favorite charity or someone in need is an important part of an offering to Goddess Lakshmi at this time. She is always pictured with one hand open and giving to others, not hoarding her good fortune!

The owl is often pictured with Goddess Lakshmi. This symbol is a reminder of her ability to bring wealth and abundance even in times of darkness and uncertainty. The owl can also symbolize the wisdom required to responsibly manage wealth and the importance of sharing good fortune to avoid misfortune.

Ganesha represents wisdom and spiritual pursuits, while Lakshmi embodies material prosperity. Their pair signifies the importance of balance between spiritual aspirations and worldly success.

On May 9-10, 2024, Mercury and Venus will be in Aries, with Venus slightly behind the powerfully exalted Sun. Expansive and abundant Jupiter will be with the Moon in Taurus on May 9 (but not on May 10 as Moon will move into Gemini at 9:56am PT) casting its auspicious gaze upon the Moon. Saturn will also be influencing the Sun in Aries from Aquarius, encouraging practicality and restraint alongside the mind's desires for expansion fueled by Jupiter's aspect to the Moon. Finding a balance between Saturn, Jupiter, the Sun and the Moon will be key to making the most of this powerful time!

Akshaya Tritiya begins at 03:47 PM on May 09, 2024 and ends at 02:20 PM on May 10, 2024.
