The New Moon brings new things as another cycle is commencing. This is a time of beginnings and initiations. It depends on Karma as to what is begun and what is ended. Even in nativities we find that births on the New Moon are fraught with great difficulties and it depends as to why these difficulties are there and what they lead to from case to case. Some may assimilate the problems and emerge as the favourites of the Goddess while others may find some dark path, with a darkened mind.
The Amāvasyā/ Amavasya is governed by Rāhu/ Rahu, the North Node of the Moon. It is inimical to the Moon/ Cañdra/ Chandra and hence the difficulties. Rāhu/ Rahu will play a very dominant role in the life of the native. The alleviation of the problems sometimes depends on the strength of Gurū/ Guru/ Jupiter as the two planets are antithetical to each other. And yet, we would do well not to judge. Without Rāhu/ Rahu a huge and significant part of creation is lost. We cannot be judgmental of Grahas. Rāhu/ Rahu is Tamas Guṇa/ Guna Graha while Gurū is Sattwa Guṇa/ Guna.
If Jupiter is very strong in the nativity then subject to a host of other facets in the horoscope, the difficulties can be tided over and the person may emerge as being the favourite of the Goddess. Otherwise, onerous times have to be undergone and suffering entails. The Tithi, just as Kṛṣṇa Caturdaśī/ Krishna Chaturdashi is flawed and thus remedial measures are required as per the Śāstra/ Shastra/ scriptures.
