ABOUT THE PANCHANGAM
TITHIS AND THE MOON CYCLE
Definitions: Paksha is the 14 day cycle the moon is in; the moon cycles 14 days through the month, and on the 15th day, it is either the full or new moon. The waning cycle which is the Moon going towards the New Moon is called Krishna Paksha, and the waxing cycle which is the Moon going towards the Full Moon is called Shukla Paksha. The full moon is called Purnima, and the new moon is called Amavasya. Tithis are the days throughout the 14 day cycle, and is used in the panchangam to determine activity types, and the (Moon Cycle) Devas (from Vedic) presiding over them (see below for explanation), in addition to auspicious and inauspicious times for the day based on Vedic astrology calculations. 

 

ABOUT THE MOON CYCLE DEVAS:

The various lunar days (tithis) (which are slightly shorter than solar days) are governed by various Devas. The Devas rotate around the new moon and full moon cycles as follows:  

The lunar month is divided into two Pakshas that determine the waning and waxing cycles of the moon. Krishna Paksha (new moon) waning moon cycle and the Shukla Paksha (full moon) waxing moon cycle.  

ABOUT THE TITHIS:

The tithis (lunar days)  are a fourteen day cycle, in addition to the new moon and the full moon. 
The Devas (Moon Cycle Devas) that preside over the lunar days (tithis) follow the same order, both for the new moon cycle and the full moon cycle. 
a. Amavasya--New Moon 
b. Purnima--Full Moon 
This is a 14 day cycle: in addition to the New Moon cycle and Full Moon 

New moon and full moon dates and the Devas follow the same order for both the new moon and full moon cycles, which are both a period of 14 days.
Tithis and the Devas:

Please note the tithis are listed for both for the waning and waxing cycles. The days can be more inauspicious (better time for reflection and not starting new projects or endeavors), or aupicious (time for creativity, projects, being social) according to vedic calculations for the day as well as what sign the moon is in and the positioning of the planets.

A Note About The Moon
 
Emotions run deep like still water. The moon not only affects weather, tides and gravity on the Earth planet, but it influences our emotions. Emotions are in sync with moon transits as it travels through a new constellation every 2 1/2 days. You can refer to my Moon Sign Glossary for how the Moon affects us as it travels through the various Zodiac constellations. The Moon is associated with emotion, and the Mother. Nurturing feelings,
Turbulent feelings, confused feelings, feelings of love, warmth, and negative feelings and others are associated with the Moon. The Moon is associated with tides (water) and gravity, and underlying feelings.
Monday is Moon's day. The full moon is associated with peak of emotion and creativity. The moon building up to the full moon is the waxing moon, which builds upon creating new projects, building new relationships. When you want to increase action, best time to do it is during the waxing moon as the moon increases in strength. For waning actions, refer to the waning moon, which culminates in the new moon. During the waning moon that leads to the new moon, things wind down, and come to closure. Feelings and emotions are also related to closure.

The Daily Moon Star.The Moon star for the day will give you an idea on better activities for the day, and since the Moon Star is ruled by certain planets, you will also get the influence from those planets as well.  Click on the Moon Star Glossary about the quality or characteristics of that Nakshatra or Moon Star. The Moon Star is also ruled by the planets, and the day will not only have the influence of the Moon Star, but the ruling planet of the Moon Star, as well as the Moon Sign. 
Difference in application between the Daily Moon Star and the birth Moon Star: The Daily Moon Star is not to be confused with the birth Nakshatra or Moon Star. Of course they are the same 27 Lunar Mansions or Nakshatras or Moon Stars, yet the application is different. The Daily Moon Star will give the general flavor of the day, whereas your birth Nakshatra or Moon Star tells you your personality characteristics.  
Discover your birth Nakshatra personality characteristics by looking up your natal Moon Star in the Moon Star Glossary. The Nakshatra in your chart could influence personality and characteristics from the time of birth. See the Moon Star Glossary for more information. Please note that you will already need to know what your birth or natal moon star is before you can look up the characteristics of your birth moon star. For this, you will need to know your birth moon star from your chart. If you do not know your birth moon star, and would like my help in finding out what it is, feel free to email me at monica@jyotishcenter.com..
