Solar Eclipse in 2021: What Is It?

Known as an astronomical phenomenon, Solar Eclipse occurs when the planet Moon moves in its orbital axis while passing between the Earth and the Sun, hereby casting a shadow on the former and blocking the sunlight. In this case, the planet Moon covers the Earth’s surface either fully or partially when all the planets are in alignment, and is visible in selected regions only. In Vedic Astrology, this event is regarded to be big, and Sutak Kaal is observed where the Eclipse is visible. Natives are refrained to initiate any auspicious project, task or ritual during this period, since the outcome won’t be as desired. There are several precautions observed by pregnant women during this while in order to shed their unborn child from any malefic effect.

Types of Solar Eclipse 2021

Three types of Solar Eclipse occurs in this world, which is mentioned below. This will help you understand the phenomenon easily and in detail.

Partial Solar Eclipse

Partial Solar Eclipse occurs when the planet Moon partially covers the Sun while in between the Earth and the Sun. During the Partial Solar Eclipse, the Moon, Sun and Earth aren’t in a straight alignment, and the Moon covers the Sun with the outer part of its penumbra, i.e. outer shadow. Partial Solar Eclipse occurs in three stages:

  • Partial Solar Eclipse begins with the Moon placing itself between the Sun and Earth.
  • After its placement, the Moon covers the maximum area of the Sun’s disk and reaches its highest magnitude.
  • After its peak point, the Partial Solar Eclipse ends with the Moon changing its placement and moving forward.

In 2021, the Sun will be visible partially eclipsed during both the occurrences, i.e. on 10 June & 4 December, in selected regions.

Annular Solar Eclipse

An Annular Solar Eclipse creates the “ring of fire”, also called as “annulus” when passing through the Sun and Earth and blocking the Sun right in the centre. In 2021, Annular Solar Eclipse is occurring on 10 June. there are five distinctive stages of its occurrence:

  • With the phenomenon occurring, the very first step is Partial Solar Eclipse.
  • After this, the Moon covers the Sun’s central disk, hereby creating the ring of fire.
  • After reaching its highest magnitude, the annulus ends and the Moon moves away from its placement, which marks an end to the eclipse.

Total Solar Eclipse

Total Solar Eclipse takes place when the planet Moon fully covers the Earth while coming in between the Earth and the Sun, and completely blocks the sunlight. This astronomical event is spectacular and emits darkness where it is visible. In the year 2021, the second Solar Eclipse occuring on 4 December is a Total Solar Eclipse.

Sun in Vedic Astrology

In Vedic Astrology, the planet Sun is regarded as the representative of one’s mind and soul, and is the source of life and origin. Apart from its scientific value, Sun adheres dominance among nine planets in Astrology as well, and is regarded as the “leader”. When evaluating a native’s birth chart or kundli, the Sun is considered to be the benefactor of father, husband, and authoritative designation within the workspace and society as well. Its placement in one’s kundli, positive, negative or neutral, incurs respective results. A strong Sun in one’s kundli makes a native powerful, ambitious and blessed with comforts of life. A benefic Sun makes a native brilliant, healthy, joyful and virtuous. On the other hand, an afflicted Sun makes the native arrogant, egoistic and self-centered.

Solar Eclipse 2021 in Mythology

As per Mythology, Solar Eclipse occurs when the shadow planets Rahu or Ketu cast their shadow on the Sun. Rahu and Ketu are two parts of the demon Swarbhanu, where Rahu represents the head and Ketu represents the torso.

It is believed that after Samudra Manthan was carried out between Demons and Gods, the Immortal Nectar of Life or Amrit was gained. It was Lord Vishnu disguised as Mohini, who tricked the demons and took away the nectar. When distributing the Nectar to the Gods, Swarbhanu took the opportunity and sat while disguising himself to drink the Amrit. It was Lord Chandra and Lord Surya who identified his, resulting in his death by Lord Vishnu’s hands with his Sudarshan Chakra.

Sutak Kaal During Solar Eclipse 2021

Sutak Kaal in 2021 is considered as an auspicious time period where any profitable project or advantageous task mustn't be performed or initiated. It begins twelve hours before the occurrence of the Solar Eclipse, and ends when the astronomical event ends. From worshipping the Gods to consuming foods, several acts are prohibited during the period of Sutak. However, these rules aren’t applicable on children, elders, or sick natives. When the eclipse ends, one must take the holy bath and clean the premises.

According to Hindu beliefs, the Earth's atmosphere is believed to be contaminated during the occurrence of an eclipse, and therefore some precautions should be taken to avoid any harmful effects at this time. It is believed that Solar Eclipse has physical and psychological impact on the human body. Therefore, it is forbidden to perform certain activities during a Solar Eclipse.

Solar Eclipse in 2021: Signifying Surprised Beginnings

Astrology states that the event of Solar Eclipse signifies new beginnings, which can set a path for the natives towards success and prosperity. However, these things can come as a surprise for them, and are connected to the worldly events. We tend to maintain a limited vision and focus on targets and options that are easily accessible or in front of us. However, the occurrence of Solar Eclipse blocks out the familiarity temporarily, and push us to consider unexplored options or doors. Since eclipses are considered to be inauspicious events, they can be a blessing in disguise. From taking decisions, to choosing the right path to establishing business relationships, positive things are likely to occur during these celestial events.
