Waiting for Valentine’s Day to pop the question? Hold on.

If local astrologers are to be believed, those expressing their romantic feelings during ‘Rahu kaal’ — the inauspicious period that will last for about 90 minutes on February 14 — might end up with heartache later. However, lovers can escape this by just avoiding making any important move or decision between 3 pm and 4.30 p.m.

“Everyone has a unique lagna and rashi. A particular time may be good for some and bad for others. But the problem is that everyone is not aware of his or her planetary position, which keeps changing. This is why it is advisable to skip ‘Rahu kaal’, if you are thinking of taking a big leap in your love life,” Jyotishacharya BK Chakraborti told Hindustan Times.

“Rahu is known to be a negative planet. Even its shadow is considered bad for a person. It is such a strong planet that it nullifies the effect of other planets. So starting anything new during the ‘Rahu kaal’ might mean problems ahead,” said Pandit Ramesh Kumar Upadhyay.

However, those in love need not panic. They can go ahead with their V-Day plans and enjoy the day. But they should just lie low during this inauspicious period, astrologers feel. “Those who plan to start a new relationship on this lovers’ day should be particularly careful during this period. The same applies for those who are planning to propose,” said Upadhayay.

Upadhyay said, “Red and white are the most suitable colours for lovers this Valentine’s Day. “Though the favourable colours also differ from one individual to other, wearing this combination would help most lovers,” said Chakraborty.
