What is Holashtak?
Holashtak has two words embedded into it and they are- "Holi and Ashtak". Holi as we all know is one of the most famous and widely celebrated Hindu festivals, particularly in northern India and Ashtak in this context means eight days.
Therefore, Holashtak is a period of eight days before the festival of Holi and as per multiple spiritual texts of the Hindu culture, these eight days are considered unlucky or inauspicious for starting anything new or performing a major task. Holashtak begins on Ashtami Tithi (eighth date) of the Shukla Paksha (Waxing Phase of Moon) in the month of Phalgun, as per the Hindu calendar.
Holashtak ends on the Purnima (Full Moon Day) of the month of Phalgun which is the day of performing 'Holika Dahan'. This year Holashtak will begin on 14th March and end on 21st March 2019.
Importance of marrying in the right "Muhurat"
The future results of any task performed depends upon the manner in which it is performed and also the intentions behind it. However, there is one more subtle yet extremely powerful factor that decides the outcome of any task to a great extent. Yes, we talking about the "Muhurat" which is actually the astrologically backed timing!
A task performed in an auspicious Muhurat attracts the positive energies of the cosmos and yields positive results. Whereas, a task performed even with perfect involvement both on the action & intention fronts, but at an inauspicious Muhurat, always yields negative results as the inauspicious timing attracts malefic energies which deteriorate the end result.
Marriage is no exception to that. Actually, considering the significance of marriage in a person's life, it is all the more important to marry in an auspicious Muhurat so that the marriage would become a blissful & successful union between the couple.

How is the Best Muhurat for marriage is calculated?
Well, the ancient & divine science of Vedic Astrology has the answer to that.
Vedic Astrology empowers an astrologer to analyze the current transitory movements of the planets and combine that with the planetary alignments as per the individual horoscopes of both the boy & girl who wish to tie the knot!
Finding the best Muhurat for marriage comes at a later part of an extremely important process called "Match-Making" or "Horoscope Matching" or "Kundali Matching" in which an astrologer matches the individual horoscopes of the couple to evaluate the levels of their compatibility with each other.
But coming back to Muhurat, an auspicious Muhurat for marriage is a time during which all major planets especially the ones that are have the maximum impact on marriage are aligned & transiting in a way that is favourable to the couple when it comes to ensuring a prosperous married life ahead.
To calculate the best Muhurat for marriage, an astrologer must be an expert when it comes to deciphering the current transit for its results on the event of marriage. The first thing that an experienced astrologer looks while calculating an auspicious Muhurat for marriage is the current effects of malefic planets like Rahu, Ketu and Saturn upon the couple. This is done because these planets more often than not cause troubles in executing something auspicious in life.

Second thing that is looked at is the current state of Mars which is a very volatile planet and is capable of destabilizing the marriage of the couple by inducing bitterness in their relationship. After these troublesome planets are looked at for their transitory effects on the life of the couple, the current state of the most important planet for marriage is analyzed.
Yes, we are talking about Venus!
Venus is the natural significator of marriage and an astrologer tries to find out a time when Venus is positive for the couple as per its transitory movement. Apart from Venus, an astrologer tries to find out a time (Muhurat) when planet Jupiter is also favourable for the couple to enter into the marital domain.
Such a time when the negative effects of malefics are minimal to none and the positive effects of benefics are maximum for the couple with respect to the event of marriage, qualifies as the best Muhurat for marriage.
