What is Panchak?
Panchak refers to the time duration of 5 days when the Moon is present in Aquarius & Pisces.

Things to avoid during Panchak Kaal
It is advised that people should avoid traveling to the southwards direction as it is considered to be the road to Yama (Death lord). But still, if you can not avoid travelling to the south, offer some fruits to Lord Hanuman to mitigate the effects of Panchak.
You should also refrain from starting a new business or get into a new transaction. But, if at all you have to get started with the construction of a new house then offer sweets to the workers before proceeding.
Wood should not be cut, and grass should not be collected during the Panchak Nakshatras as they may cause a fire in your house.
Dead body should not be cremated during Panchak Nakshatra because doing this may lead to more deaths in the family. But if there is some mishappening and it cannot be avoided then flour (Atta) should be used to make five dolls. These dolls should be cremated with the dead body. This remedy is believed to remove the dosha of Panchak.
Don't even think about buying or constructing a new bed during Panchak Kaal, it is considered as very inauspicious.
