The quality of the day is put together using 3 parameters: the day of the week, the current tithi and the current nakshatra. The mix of these 3 parameters provide the basis for the icon set below. The icons are meant to immediately provide information and are easier to interpret than the current day-tithi-nakshatra combination.

Vedic BEACON calculates almost everything based on the location where you are, so make sure this is correctly selected, so make sure to update it whenever you are travelling. More about the importance of location here. Let us know if your location is not listed and we will add it for you.
With the V.I.P. and UNLIMITED Subscriptions you will have the possibility to view the calendar in a more detailed view (More about that on the versions page). You will be able to turn this on or off as you see fit with the Detailed Calendar Icons section.
If you have a Subscription of INFORMED, V.I.P. or UNLIMITED, you will see your Birth Nakshatra and The Moon's House In Horoscope at the final section. These settings are needed for your personal Chandra Bala and Tara Bala calculations.
Astrological predictions require intuition.
However, with Vedic BEACON we are not doing an in depth birth horoscope analysis, but a more straightforward prediction of the qualities of the days, so it will be a lot easier to put things together.
Still there is room for interpretation, and while using it, soon you will discover certain patterns which are only applicable to you.
At this point, I would like emphasize the importance of free will. Your free will is a strong factor despite any kinds of effects, energies, etc. you will receive, so with a strong will, many things can change. If you do not make conscious decisions, then the current energies will have a more active role in your moment. With Vedic BEACON you can consciously tune in to the the day's energies as a surfer rides the waves, but only as much as it serves you.
Sometimes you will have a very easy time: if you have a Siddha day and the day's quality is quick, it will be easy to deduct, that it will be a great day to start activities which benefit from the quick quality: starting a trip, a marketing campaign, etc. .
Of course there are not so straightforward days: like when the day's quality is generally okay (Mixed day), but your important event is at the Rahu Kalam period of the day, and the Moon is not favorable on that day. These situations need time to master, but in any case it is better to wait for a good day (like Siddha) if possible. Also, there are some hard and fast rules below to make this easier.
Finally, I would like to point out, that no matter how much data you have available here, if you have an important decision (like when to get married, signing a big contract, when to start building the house of your dreams etc.) you should contact a reputable astrologer.
