Phases of Moon

When Sun is in Taurus while Moon is in Cancer, it means that Moon is in a waxing state which is considered to be beneficial as per Vedic sidereal astrology.

Taurus Sun combined with Cancer Moon gives the possibility of formation of the Waxing Crescent lunar phase.

Waxing Crescent

Taurus Sun & Cancer Moon Panchang – Astrological Diary

Tithi – Vedic Lunar Phase

In Vedic sidereal astrology, there is a very precise lunar phase system used in which the whole cycle of the Moon is divided into 30 tiny sectors. Each of these sectors represents a specific lunar day.

Each day, in turn, is represented by a specific deity and planet which reveals important significances and deep effects.

Each year Sun and Moon are in different degrees in Taurus and Cancer respectively which creates the possibility of the formation of various different Vedic lunar phases.

In this article, we shall learn about 3 possible Vedic lunar phases formed by Taurus Sun and Cancer Moon.

Shukla Tritiya

Shukla Tritiya is the 3rd lunar day and the 3rd part of waxing Moon. The 3rd lunar day is characterized by Bala Prada which is the provider of durability, resistance, and strength.

Individuals born on this lunar day have a special ability to endure an extensive amount of stress.

The emotional intelligence provided by Cancer Moon supports this effect by helping them maintain emotional stability even in the worst environments.

Individuals with Cancer Moon combined with the effects of the 3rd lunar day are very proficient because of their stubborn determination combined with powerful cognitive abilities.

Sukla Chaturthi

Sukla Chaturthi is the 4th lunar day and also the 4th part of the waxing Moon state. This day is symbolized by Khala Prada which denotes being cruel, harsh, and wicked.

Despite the compassionate nature and gentle character traits provided by Cancer Moon, those born on this lunar day have a very straightforward and aggressive attitude which can be very intimidating.

Cancer Moon, however, decreases their aggression and motivates them to use stingy words instead of cruelty to battle opposition.

Taurus Sun, at the same time, amplifies their desire to confront others because they are way too stubborn to accept opposition easily.

Shukla Panchami

Shukla Panchami is the 5th lunar day and conjointly the 5th part of the waxing Moon phase.

This lunar day is signified by Lakshami Prada which is the gives of comforts, luxury, and wealth.

That is because Lakshmi is the deity that is tightly related to wealth as per sidereal Vedic astrology.

As a general effect, individuals born on this lunar day are blessed to have plenty of comforts with them which makes both their professional and personal life more satisfactory.

On the negative side, this effect can further spoil Taurus Sun as it draws them tightly into a comfort zone from which it is very hard to escape.

On the positive side, a strong Cancer Moon gives them the ability to be productive in any environment which means that increased comforts would not cause major harm to their productivity and effectiveness.

Both sides combined, Taurus Sun gives them a great desire to attain materialistic security while Cancer Moon gives enough passion to take proper steps to attain it.

Taurus Sun & Cancer Moon Yoga

Another important astrological combination formed by Sun and Moon with respect to each other is Nitya Yoga.

Sun and Moon are luminaries and thus the primary indicators of the personality of a person.

The distance or exact degrees between these luminaries create a specific Yoga which gives deeper insight into the soul and mind of a person.

This is why Taurus Sun combined with Cancer Moon people are not all the same and still have differences in their mentalities and general behaviors.

There is a total of 27 Nitya Yoga combinations and when Taurus Sun combines with Cancer Moon, there is a possibility of the formation of many different variations.

In this article, we shall learn about 3 possible Nitya Yoga combinations which can be formed by the placements of Sun and Moon in the mentioned zodiac signs.


Dhruva is the 12th Sun-Moon Yoga combination which is governed by the South Node of Moon Ketu. This combination is considered to be beneficial in nature.

Dhruva in other words means stability, persistence, and permanence. Individuals born with this Sun-Moon Yoga always strive to achieve results that are lasting.

Dhruva Yoga resonates well with Taurus Sun which gives an inherent desire to achieve permanent stability.

In other words, these natives not only have a desire to achieve long-lasting results, but they also have the ability to achieve permanent results especially in the professional sphere.

Dhruva Yoga is represented by the deity Bhumi which is the ruler of the earth.

At the same time, Taurus is also an earth sign which shows that individuals with this set of combinations are very practical and loyal to their decisions.


Vyaghata is the 13th Sun-Moon Yoga combination which is governed by the natural benefic planet Venus. However, this combination is still considered malefic.

Vyaghata means to abolish or restrict. As the name of this Sun-Moon Yoga suggests, its function is to cause obstructions.

Accordingly, individuals born with this combination are intended to cause obstacles to other people.

As Cancer Moon makes them rather gentle and compassionate, it decreases the malefic effect of this combination.

For instance, they are good at coming up with strategies on how to demolish their opponents or rivals who have bad intentions towards them.


Harshana is the 14th Sun-Moon combination which is governed by the natural malefic planet Sun. However, this Yoga does still provide beneficial effects.

Harshana means to be joyful, delighted, and thrilled. Individuals with this combination seek enjoyment and beauty even in the simplest things in life.

This effect helps them to be more grateful which actually attracts wealth and prosperity naturally to them.

Harshana Yoga is represented by the deity Bhaga which provides wealth to those who deserve it according to merits.
