The auspiciousness of the given time is one of the most sought things when it comes to starting something new, no matter where you are and what religion you belong to. And one of the ways to find the auspiciousness of the day in Hinduism is through scooping out the Shubh Muhurat 2022 for anything and everything you seek to do. Whether it is shaadi of yours or the mundan of your child, performing such rituals while abiding by the Shubh muhurat assures you of the blessings from the divine thus making any given situation a blissful and memorable one.
So in 2022, as you plan new beginnings for yourself, here is a list of all the Shubh muhurats 2022 in Hindi (another story) and English that can help you in assuring the grace of God. The astrologers on Astrotalk have compiled the dates and timings of all the auspicious muhurats falling in the year 2022 based on the planetary calculations. Having knowledge of these Shubh Muhurat will come to your rescue any time of the day.
With that being said, now let’s dive into finding out the Shubh muhurat 2022 for marriage, Naam karan, Vidyarambh, Mundan, Griha Pravesh, Annaprashan, Upanayana, Karnavedha, etc.
There is surely no need for us to convince you of the importance of Shubh Muhurat in 2022. From performing a simple pooja to sending rockets to the Moon, Indians have always relied on Shubh muhurats to start any kind of auspicious task. And with always, we really mean back from the Vedic times when sages actually started the practice of finding the Shubh muhurats for different purposes. Thereafter, as Hinduism grew, so did the belief that if any auspicious and demanding work is to be done, it must be done during the right ticks of the clock.
But the question is, how does one decide whether the given time is right or wrong? Or how does all this Shubh muhurat thing actually work? Well, if you ask our astrologers, they will surely tell you various dimensions to take note of when it comes to finding a Shubh muhurat. But here, we will try to explain all of it to you in a very simple way.
In astrology, to find the Shubh Muhurat 2022, one of the main things that our astrologers consider is the planetary moment. We have as many as nine planets in astrology, also called Navgrah. And these planets, at any point in time, occupy one of the 12 houses in your Kundli. These 12 houses relate to finance, love, health, marriage, foreign travel, enemies, children etc.
Now if one seeks to marry in 2022, and wants to find the Shubh Muhurat for marriage in 2022, astrologers will do so by first looking at their kundli. Among other things - like whether you are Manglik or not - the astrologer will have a look at the House of marriage in your kundli and what planet is occupying it at a particular point in time. For example, if the planet Rahu is placed in the house of marriage, that day may not be the best for you to marry. However, if the planet Sun is in the house of marriage, then it could be an auspicious time for you to marry. This way, both the boy’s and the girl’s kundlis are matched. And at the end, we have the auspicious time aka Shubh muhurat for marriage by our side.
Now for the ones who seek to have the sophisticated definition of Shubh muhurat, our astrologers define it as a particular time during which the position of planetary constellations in the solar system is auspicious for a person.
With everything going modern, one may wonder why we still consider finding an auspicious time in 2022 to begin a particular thing or two. Well, the answer is pretty simple. When we are doing anything, our first intention is to have success. And to have this success, our mind looks for every possible means. Surely we work hard, but an extra pinch of luck by your side would not hurt, right? Having said that, astrology comes to one’s rescue. In astrology, it is believed that the planets and constellations are the medium of energies. And having their energy can allow us the positivity that we need to accomplish something at hand. This is the only reason why one needs to find the Shubh Muhurat before commencing a task.
This tradition of finding Shubh muhurat has its history from Vedic times. Sages back in those days used to propose to the kings that they should only do things after analysing the auspiciousness of the time, even when starting a war. Doing so keeps at bay the hindrances that may fall upon and adds positivity.
It is very interesting to know that although most of the modern generation do not consider many of the Vedic things. However, somewhere in the back of their mind, they always do consider finding the Shubh muhurat when starting anything new. From Bollywood to politics, from worshipping expensive cars to worshipping the Rafale Jets, time and again we have proved the legitimacy of the science of finding Shubh muhurat, and thankfully, continue to do so.
Even if you ever give a read to Hindu sculptures or texts, especially the Vedic texts, you will find for yourself that many of these texts have a mention of Shubh muhurat and their importance. Even many Gods, back in time when Ravana's son was about to be born, had asked the planets in astrology to move to an inappropriate position just to make sure Ravana’s son is not born at an auspicious time. This story itself proves the legitimacy of Shubh Muhurats and why they are considered a benevolent force in shaping our life.
After pinpointing the impedance of Shubh muhurat, now we shall have a look at how our astrologers find Shubh Muhurat 2022. While a small gist of the same question has been mentioned in the first paragraph, here is an elongated version of the same. To find the Shubh Muhurat 2022 in Hindi, apart from the position of the planets, we also consider other astrological elements like - Tithi, Nakshatra, Shubh yoga, inauspicious yoga, Lagna, Rahu kaal, Bhadra, Adhik maas, etc.
Based on these terms, which many won’t understand, the auspicious and also the inauspicious time of the year are found. While the former is called the Shubh muhurat, the latter, on the other hand, is found to allow you an idea of when to not do something. Because if you try to do things at this time, it is more likely that you won’t find success or may have to face many hurdles. Thus, whenever trying to find the Shubh Muhurat 2022, also consider having knowledge of inauspicious timings too.
As per astrology, throughout the day, i.e., 24 hours, there are as many as 30 shubh muhurats for doing different things. Each muhurat stays for at least 48 minutes. One should try to complete an important task within these 48 minutes.
Like we said, a 24-hour long day has 30 muhurats in it. The first muhurat, i.e. Rudra Muhurat, begins at 6 AM and goes on for as long as 48 minutes. However, this is an inauspicious muhurat and is not considered viable to begin a new task. Once the Rudra muhurat ends, then comes the Ahi Muhurta and it also comes under the category of an inauspicious Muhurta. Apart from these two Muhurtas, here are all the 28 other Shubh muhurats that fall in a day.

When we try to find Shubh Muhurat, mainly five things are considered to ensure the best time of the day is at your service. These 5 things are: Panchang Tithi, Vaar, Nakshatra, Yoga and Karan. Based on these, the auspicious time in 2022 is found. Now we shall discuss these one-by-one.
Tithi is one of the elements of Hindu panchang. It is very important to know the Tithi to find the Shubh Muhurat. A Tithi is the duration of two phases of the Moon that are observed from the Earth. As per astrology, there are as many as 30 Tithis in a month. Out of these, 15 fall in Shukla Paksha and the remaining 15 in the Krishna paksha. A tithi begins from one sunrise and continues till the other sunrise.
However, at some times, two dates may fall on the same day. Of these, the tithi which does not see the sunrise is called the Kshya titihi and the one which lasts till two sunrise is called Vrishy tithi.
Krishna Paksha tithis - Pratipada, Dwitiya, Tritiya, Chaturthi, Panchami, Shashti, Saptami, Ashtami, Navami, Dashami, Ekadashi, Dwadashi, Trayodashi, Chaturdashi, Amavasya
Shukla Paksha tithis - Pratipada, Dwitiya, Tritiya, Chaturthi, Panchami, Shashti, Saptami, Ashtami, Navami, Dashami, Ekadashi, Dwadashi, Trayodashi, Chaturdashi, Poornima
The second important thing when it comes to finding the Shubh muhurat 2022 is Vaar. As per the Hindu calendar, there are as many as 7 Vaars in each week. These are - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. All the Vaars in astrology are said to have their own characteristics.
Like every other thing, each Vaar supports a thing or two. A good example here is how Muslims consider Friday as one of the most auspicious Vaar. Similarly, some Vaars are good for marriage, others for mundan, etc. In astrology, Tuesday, Sunday and Thursday are considered good in many ways.
Nakshatras are nothing but constellations that we see in the sky. Whatever constellation is the Moon passing through at a particular point in time becomes the Nakshatra for the day. Back in the times of Sages, though they knew of zodiac signs, however, for better clarity, they divided the 12 zodiac signs into 27 nakshatras. Each Nakshatra is approximately a day long and has its own characteristics. While some nakshatras are good for a particular task. Others, on the other hand, may not be good. Thus when finding out the Shubh Muhurat in 2022 you must only abide by a muhurat that falls on good nakshatra.
The names of the nakshatras are: Ashwini, Bharani, Krittika, Rohini, Mrigashira, Ardra, Punarvasu, Pushya, Ashlesha, Magha, Poorva Phalguni, Uttara Phalguni, Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Visakha, Anuradha, Jyestha, Mool, Purva ashadha, Uttara ashadha, Shravan, Dhanishta, Shatabhisha, Poorva Bhadrapada, Uttara Bhadrapada and Revati.

Sun - Kritika, Uttaraphalguni, Uttara ashadha.
Moon - Rohini, Hasta, Shravan.

Mercury - Ashlesha, Jyestha, Revati.
When finding Shubh Muhurat 2022, the astrologers also abide by Yoga. The Yoga for a particular day is decided by the placement of the Sun and Moon in the night sky. In astrology, there are as many as 27 Yogas based on which Shubh Muhurat 2022 can be found. Among the 27 yogas, nine are very inauspicious while all the remaining are considered auspicious. Doing any task during the inauspicious Yogas is considered bad. Here is all that you need to know about the 27 yogas and their nature-

Karana obviously makes one of the most important elements when it comes to finding Shubh Muhurat 2022 In astrology, there are as many as 2 Karanas in a tithi. In total, there are 11 Karanas in astrology among which four are of stable nature and the other seven Karanas are of variable nature.
