Why are not any auspicious work done during this time

The rainy season starts from the month of Ashadh. During this time people have to face rain and floods. In such a situation, it becomes very difficult to perform Manglik work. Due to the rainy season, the risk of diseases increases significantly during this time. People’s ability to fight diseases is greatly reduced. It is believed that during these four months, the effect of negative forces increases greatly and positive forces start weakening. Because of which no auspicious work is done.
