Solar Eclipse 2019 Predictions For Zodiac Signs
Eclipse in Vedic astrology, be it Solar Eclipse or Lunar Eclipse, holds high importance. Where the Sun is the benefactor of the soul, the Moon represents one’s mind. Based on science, an eclipse is an astronomical event, but astrology categorizes it as a deep and thoughtful subject, as it affects the whole nature. During a Solar Eclipse, the Moon comes between the Earth and the Sun, hindering the sun rays from reaching the Earth and resulting in darkness during the day itself. This creates a strange atmosphere within the surroundings.

Eclipse & Pregnant Women
The time of the eclipse is crucial for pregnant women. Special precautions should be taken during this time to protect the unborn child from malefic effects of the eclipse. Activities such as sewing, embroidery, cutting etc. or watching the eclipse must be refrained. Do not leave your house or sleep during the period of eclipse, as it is considered a taboo. It is believed that performing all these activities can have adverse effects on the offspring and may result in under-development or loss of an organ.
Effects Of Solar Eclipse
The effect of a Solar Eclipse can be witnessed on the entire Earth and nature. Its effects can be seen for up to 6 months. This Solar Eclipse will occur in Sagittarius and Mool Nakshatra during Paush Amavasya under the Vriddhi Yoga.
Adverse effects will be seen on Brahmins and women. Besides, there may be a shortage of rain and conditions like famine may arise. There may be a significant rise in the prices of ghee, turmeric, cotton etc. Fruit traders, doctors, vaidh or physician or people associated with medicine can face several problems. With Solar Eclipse in the month of Paush and Sagittarius sign, prices of cereals will rise, and rainfall will be moderate. Due to the effect of this eclipse on the Mool Nakshatra, the price of cottonseed, millet, cardamom, sugar, barley, etc. will also increase. In terms of location, political upheaval could be witnessed in China, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Muslim-centric nations and India, especially in Kashmir. Along with this, there can be an increase in civil disturbances and terrorist incidents in Pakistan-related areas.
During this eclipse, planet Sun will conjunct with the Moon, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Ketu in Sagittarius, and all these planets will remain placed in the Rahu-Ketu axis. In addition, Mercury, Jupiter, and Sun will remain posited in the Mool Nakshatra. This planetary nexus will have a wider impact on the lives of natives.
As a result, a power struggle in politics may be seen, and conflicts may arise amongst the ministers of the cabinet. Natural disasters can occur, such as hurricanes, major illnesses, floods or droughts in particular. During this time, big politicians and the ruling party may have to face several problems. Keeping these things in mind, one should prepare to deal with them in advance.
Do’s & Don’ts During Solar Eclipse
During the occurrence of Solar Eclipse, it is forbidden to perform certain tasks exclusively, whereas some tasks performed during this event can incur beneficial outcomes. If you wish to attain any Siddhi, then the period of an eclipse is considered the best to chant the below mantra:
स्पर्शे स्नानं जपं कुर्यान्मध्ये होमं सुरार्चनम। मुच्यमाने सदा दानं विमुक्तौ स्नानमाचरेत।।
--- (ज्ये. नि.)
sparśe snānaṃ japaṃ kuryānmadhye homaṃ surārcanama। mucyamāne sadā dānaṃ vimuktau snānamācareta।।
--- (jye. ni.)
The above line means that at the beginning of the eclipse period, bathing and chanting should be done. It is considered favourable to perform the Yagna and worship the deities during the mid-period. Donations should be made when the eclipse ends, and when the eclipse has completely occurred, you should bathe and purify yourself.
दानानि यानि लोकेषु विख्यातानि मनीशिभः। तेषां फलमाप्नोति ग्रहणे चन्द्र सूर्ययोः।।
--- (सौर पुराण)
dānāni yāni lokeṣu vikhyātāni manīśibhaḥ। teṣāṃ phalamāpnoti grahaṇe candra sūryayoḥ।।
--- (saura purāṇa)
That is, the fruits for all kinds of donations made throughout the world can be incurred during the period of Lunar and Solar Eclipse. The importance of donations and charity is highlighted.
अन्नं पक्वमिह त्याज्यं स्नानं सवसनं ग्रहे। वारितक्रारनालादि तिलैदम्भौर्न दुष्यते।।
annaṃ pakvamiha tyājyaṃ snānaṃ savasanaṃ grahe। vāritakrāranālādi tilaidambhaurna duṣyate।।
During a Solar Eclipse, Lord Surya should be revered by reciting different Surya Stotras such as Aditya Hridaya Stotram etc. to gain promising results. Cooked grains and chopped vegetables should be discarded as they become contaminated during this period. However, putting Kusha in things like ghee, oil, curd, milk, curd, butter, cheese, pickles, chutney, marmalade etc. is recommended. However, there is no need to put in Kusha in case it is a dried food item.
चन्द्रग्रहे तथा रात्रौ स्नानं दानं प्रशस्यते।
candragrahe tathā rātrau snānaṃ dānaṃ praśasyate।
Whether it is a Lunar or Solar Eclipse, making donations or taking a bath during the night is considered excellent.
न स्नायादुष्णतोयेन नास्पर्शं स्पर्शयेत्तथा।।
na snāyāduṣṇatoyena nāsparśaṃ sparśayettathā।।
One should not bathe in hot water during the eclipse period or after it has ended. However, there is no prohibition for boys, elders, pregnant women and patients.
यन्नक्षत्रगतो राहुर्ग्रस्ते शशिभास्करौ। तज्जातानां भवेत्पीड़ा ये नराः शांतिवर्जिताः।।
yannakṣatragato rāhurgraste śaśibhāskarau। tajjātānāṃ bhavetpīड़ā ye narāḥ śāṃtivarjitāḥ।।
When Rahu afflicts the Moon or Sun in a nakshatra, natives under the influence are particularly likely to suffer.
ग्रस्यमाने भवेत्स्नानं ग्रस्ते होमो विधीयते। मुच्यमाने भवेद्दानं मुक्ते स्नानं विधीयते।।
grasyamāne bhavetsnānaṃ graste homo vidhīyate। mucyamāne bhaveddānaṃ mukte snānaṃ vidhīyate।।
सर्वगङ्गा समं तोयं सर्वेव्यास समद्विजाः। सर्वभूमि समं दानं ग्रहणे चन्द्र -सूर्ययोः।।
sarvagaṅgā samaṃ toyaṃ sarvevyāsa samadvijāḥ। sarvabhūmi samaṃ dānaṃ grahaṇe candra -sūryayoḥ।।
During the eclipse period, holy water retrieved from any place is considered equivalent to Gangajal. Bathing and donating is believed to be appropriate in all ways. All types of Dvijas or ‘twice-born” Brahmans are deemed as a form of Vyas ji. Any donation made at the end of a Lunar or Solar eclipse is also considered similar to Sarva Bhumi Daan.
