Surya Grahan on 9th March & 1st September 2016 - Solar Eclipse

Last Updated: 5/31/2011 12:26:35 PM

Solar Eclipse, Surya Grahan

Eclipses of the Sun (Surya Grahan) or of the Moon (Chandra Grahan) are material, astronomical events, obvious to the naked eye, and as regular and as predictable as clockwork. They have an evident physical effect, as the light of either the Sun or the Moon is noticeably dimmed during the period of the eclipse. This is a scientific phenomenon, one which has been carefully observed since quite primitive times. In astrology, which studies the cosmic phenomena in terms of their effects on the lives of beings that inhabit the Earth, an eclipse is also a psychological, spiritual, social and emotional phenomenon. This aspect of eclipses has also been studied intensely, since before the beginning of civilisation.

In ancient times, priests and astrologers discovered how to predict eclipses, having realized their significance. Using observation and mathematics, they prepared reliable tables, utilizing their knowledge of the movement of the Moon's Nodes (Rahu / Ketu), that have hardly been surpassed for accuracy until the recent advent of the computer. The Moon's Nodes mark the points where the path of the Moon's orbit around the Earth crosses the plane of the ecliptic (the apparent path of the Sun and planets around the Earth) as viewed from the surface of the Earth. An eclipse takes place when either a New Moon (producing a Solar Eclipse) or a Full Moon (producing a Lunar Eclipse) occurs close to either of the Nodes.

The eclipse of the Sun has traditionally been viewed with dread over the ages, as the great giver of life seems inexplicably to disappear from the sky. Birds prepare for bed; the sky darkens in the middle of the day. It seems as though something dreadful is about to happen. Over the years, experience has shown us that old things come to an end (or are overthrown) under a solar eclipse and a new beginning can be made. The effect on the world of eclipses has been seen to be generally felt for some six months, until the next eclipse then restructures the cosmic energies.

Astrologically, solar eclipses taking place in the Ascendant, Moon sign or Sun sign signify the fall of the mighty (or at least, they're in big trouble). Depending where in the zodiac the eclipse occurs, stress is always placed on the matters governed by that sign, or sector of the zodiac. A powerful Solar Eclipse can create massive havoc, in accordance with other aspects in the heavens at the time, as can be clearly seen by the trail of earthquakes and other disasters. At a more personal level, the solar eclipse can have a big effect on our personal lives when it occurs in conjunction with one of our natal planets, especially our birth position of Sun or Moon. Other important chart factors, such as birth position of planets like Jupiter or Saturn or critical points (sahams) can also have a very significant effect when impacted by a solar eclipse. Where the eclipse falls in the chart is significant, as the energies expressed by its house placement will show the areas of life that are affected by the new beginning that is implied.

Solar Eclipse on 9th March 2016, will be visible in India. It takes place in India, Australia, Palau, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, China, Myanmar. Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean, North Pacific Ocean, South Korea, Guinea. The eclipse occurs in Purva Bhadrapada Nakshatra in Aquarius Sign.

The second Solar Eclipse will take place on 1st September and it will not be visible in India, but in places like Africa, South Pole, Madagascar, Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Mozambique and Geban it will be visible as Kankan Surya Grahan.

The solar eclipse might usher in changes in various Rashis. People governed by the sign Taurus should be careful while driving and take care of their health for the time being. The period is might be considered auspicious for Aries, Taurus, Virgo, Sagittarius.

Grahan is a solar phenomenon and it should not be held responsible for ill luck or bad phase in your life. If you are so much worried, the best option is to consult an astrologer and pray to the Supreme Being and chant a simple mantra. For success in life – It is hard work, determination and dedication and there is no substitute for these.
