Solar Eclipse 2019

There are three types of solar eclipses:

  • Total Solar Eclipse
  • Partial Solar Eclipse
  • Annular Solar Eclipse

First Solar Eclipse 2019

Partial Solar Eclipse 2019 occurs when the Moon, Sun and the Earth are not in a straight line. During this period, the Sun appears to have a shadow across its surface. There is a famous legend associated with the event of a solar eclipse in India, i.e., a Solar eclipse occurs when Rahu and Ketu get their revenge on the Sun and the Moon by ‘overshadowing’ them and stealing their light and hence, darkness prevails over the Universe.

Date Time Type Visibility
January 6, 2019 From 05:04:08 AM to 09:18:46 AM Partial Solar Eclipse Northeast Asia, North Pacific

Note: This eclipse will not be visible in India. As per the Indian Calendar, it will take place on the day of Amavasya in the month of Paush. It will occur in Sagittarius sign during Purvashada Nakshatra. So, Surya Grahan might be unfavourable for the natives belonging to this Sign and Nakshatra.

Second Solar Eclipse 2019

Total Solar Eclipse 2020 will occur when the Sun, Moon and the Earth are in a straight line. During this period, the Sun is visible only from a small area from the Earth.

Date Time Type Visibility
July 2-3, 2019 From 23:31:08 PM to 02:14:46 AM Total Solar Eclipse South Pacific, South America

Note: This eclipse will take place between July 2 and July 3, and will not be visible in India. It will take place on the day of Amavasya in the month of Ashadha. It will occur in Gemini sign during Ardra Nakshatra. So, the natives born in this sign and Nakshatra may face the unfavourable outcomes of this Solar Eclipse.

Third Solar Eclipse 2019

Annular Solar Eclipse 2019 will occur when the Moon covers the centre of the Sun and hence, the outer edges of the sun form a ring of fire around the moon. According to Vedic Astrology, eclipses are believed to be a bad omen to start a relationship, job or any other important thing in your life. This is because Vedic astrologers believe that light is a ray of hope and hence, all the auspicious beginnings should begin with the light of the Sun god. Therefore, Solar Eclipse is considered to be more powerful than Lunar Eclipse because during this period, the Moon darkens the Sun.

Date Time Type Visibility
December 26, 2019 From 08:17:02 AM to 10:57:09 AM Annular Solar Eclipse (Partial Eclipse visible in India) India and other Asian countries, Australia

Note: This eclipse 2019 will be partially visible in India, and the timing mentioned above is valid for New Delhi only. Also, third Surya Grahan will take place on the day of Amavasya in the month of Paush. It will occur in Sagittarius sign during Moola Nakshatra . The natives associated with this sign and Nakshatra may face the disadvantageous results of this Solar Eclipse.

Many believe solar eclipses to be an auspicious time, while others consider it to be inauspicious. There are many astrologers who believe that a solar eclipse induces strong flashes of impulsive nature in individuals. This can lead to people taking hasty decisions, or behaving in an irrational manner, or even being selfish to others’ feelings. Some astrologers advise you to avoid the commencement of any new inning/project at least 3 days before and after the eclipse (or Grahan) .

If one controls his/her temper and thinks rationally, there is no point to believe that a surya grahan will only provide negative outcomes to his/her life. But, if you believe that solar eclipse or surya grahan will have a negative effect on you, then you can stay indoors and meditate. In fact, solar eclipse is considered to be the best time to connect with spirits because the ‘veils’ are thin during this time.

Solar Eclipse 2019: Sutak Kaal - The Inauspicious Period

In Hinduism, during the Solar Eclipse 2019, Sutak Kaal is that period when certain tasks are strictly prohibited. The reason being that it is considered inauspicious to perform them in this duration, otherwise they may give bad results. Generally, it begins before an eclipse and ends after taking a bath, when the eclipse ends. It is important to note that the rules of Sutak Kaal are not applicable on children, sick and elderly people.

As first and second Surya Grahan in 2019 will not be visible in India, therefore, their sutak rules will not be applicable here. But, the third Grahan will be partially visible in India. So, its religious and astrological importance will be considered here.

Sutak Kaal Timings for Third Solar Eclipse 2019

Sutak Begins 05:33 PM on December 25, 2019
Sutak Ends 10:57 AM on December 26, 2019
