What is Vaar

The traditional Hindu Panchang specifies the solar day, or Vasara or Vaar. The Vaar Chakra starts with sunrise and ends with the next day sunrise, it is fully based on the revolution of the earth on its axis. Each Vaar is tributed into 24 Horas or hours, and the Horas are allocated to the planets in their “descendant sidereal phase”.
There are seven days in the week or 7 Vaar in Astrology, and each is most powerfully influencedby a specific planet as follows. In Vedic Hindu Panchang, Vaar is akin to the English weekday, difference lying in their starting time representation. In Indian traditional life, a specific Vaar is important, as they are supposed to be suitable for specific activities. They are the last thing in the first line of the Sankalpam. Nakshatras.

The planet, to which the day or Vaar is allotted, is called Day Lord or Vaaresh.

Out of these Tuesday and Saturday are completely maleficent and Sunday is partly maleficent. All the Vaars are also categorized like Nakshatras. as follows.

Sunday
Dhruva-Sthira (Fixed and Constant)
Monday
Char-chal (movable)
Tuesday
Ugra-Kroora (Aggressive and Cruel)
Wednesday
Mishra (Mixed)
Thursday
Ksipra-Laghu (Short and dynamic)
Friday
Mridu-Maidiva (Gentle and friendly)
Saturday
Tikshna-Darun (Volatile)

The days are appropriate for all doings for which the Nakshatras of same category are suitable like Sunday for tasks of fixed nature, Monday for acts requiring movement or motion or so on.
The logic in allotting a Day to a Planet (Graha), is the first Hora of the day, which relates to a particular Planet (Graha), so Monday is allotted to Moon or Chandra, as first Hora on that day is ascribed to Moon.
