Hora-Formation of Days
Hora Earth rotates on its axis from West to East direction. Earth completes one rotation in 24 hours. Due to rotation of Earth on its axis, day and night are formed. Day occur in the part of Earth that comes in front of Sun while on the other side night occur. Thus everywhere day and night does not occur at the same time. At some places it is day, at some night, while at some noon. Due to Earth’s rotation from West to East, the Sun rises from East. Sun rise will occur first in East direction. Thus, in India sunrise will occur first in Eastern states like Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, West Bengal, etc. In these states sunrise happens first. Sunrise happens here somewhere between 4.30 to 5.30 a.m.
While states in western part of India has late sunrise. Thus in western states like Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharashtra, etc. sunrise occur late i.e. somewhere between 5.30 to 6.30 a.m. Same situation occurs during sunset time also as sunset occurs early in the East and later in the West.
Earth rotates on its axis in 24 hours. In these 24 hours, 12 zodiac signs rises in East direction at an interval of approximately two hours. These 24 hours has 24 Hora. Thus every hour has one Hora.
There are 9 planets in Astrology. These 9 planets are Mercury, Venus., Moon, Mars, Sun, Jupiter, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu.
Nomenclature of a day is done after the name of the planet who is Lord of Hora of that particular day. So the nomenclature of days i.e. Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, etc. is based on rise of Hora of that planet on that particular day. Sun is seen with the occurrence of nature, so the first day and first Hora belongs to Sun and first day is called as Sunday after Sun. Situation of planets is in the following order as Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury and Moon.
Since Sun is seen in the nature first so the first Hora is of Sun. Thus the first day is Sunday. After the first Hora of Sun, the second Hora will be of Venus. Similarly, the third Hora will be of Mercury, fourth of Moon, fifth of Saturn, sixth of Jupiter, seventh of Mars, eighth of Sun, ninth of Venus, tenth of Mercury, eleventh of Moon, twelfth of Saturn, thirteenth of Jupiter, fourteenth of Mars, fifteenth of Sun, sixteenth of Venus, seventeenth of Mercury, eighteenth of Moon, nineteenth of Saturn, twentieth of Jupiter, twenty-first of Mars, twenty-second of Sun, twenty-third of Venus, twenty-fourth Mercury and twenty-fifth that is the first Hora of next day of Moon. Thus, the name of the next day after Sunday will be Monday which is after Moon.
Last (twenty fourth) Hora of Monday is that of Jupiter, so next day first Hora will be that of Mars. Thus, the next day after Monday will be called as Tuesday.
Last (twenty fourth) Hora of Tuesday is that of Venus, so next day first Hora will be that of Mercury. Thus, the next day after Tuesday will be called as Wednesday.
Last (twenty fourth) Hora of Wednesday is that of Saturn, so next day first Hora will be that of Jupiter. Thus, the next day after Wednesday will be called as Thursday.
Last (twenty fourth) Hora of Thursday is that of Sun, so next day first Hora will be that of Venus. Thus, the next day after Thursday will be called as Friday.
Last (twenty fourth) Hora of Friday is that of Moon, so next day first Hora will be that of Saturn. Thus, the next day after Friday will be called as Saturday.
Last (twenty fourth) Hora of Saturday is that of Mars, so next day first Hora will be that of Sun. Thus, the next day after Saturday will be called as Sunday. Similarly, these cycle goes on. In this way the days were formed.
