Choose A Rakhi For Your Brother Based On His Zodiac Sign


Raksha Bandhan celebrates the unmatched bond of love and care. In fact, this bond of brother and sister is just another form of a long-lasting friendship. Both the brother and the sister eagerly await this day. As the markets are full of varieties for rakhis, getting confused amidst such beautiful designs is inevitable.

Astrology says that the colour we wear has a lot of effects on our personality as well as our aura. Wearing a colour on the basis of our stars helps make the cosmic energies positive and favourable. It leaves a major effect when that particular colour is received as blessings or as a gift from a loved one.
