Yama Ghantaka

  • Lunar Eclipse (an essay of 4 articles). Article #3: Important classical rules

    Year's 2015 last Chandra Grahana (Lunar Eclipse) will happen on the 28th of September in Meena RashiUttara Bhadrapada Nakshatra from 0:14 a.m. till 5:23 a.m. (UTC, Greenwich Time). It will be the full eclipse that will reach its peak at 02:48 a.m. (UTC, Greenwich Time).

    Important classical rules concerning this astrological event

    1) Precaution concerning non-looking at Lunar eclipse: according to Muhurta Prakash (classical source on Jyotish) it is especially inauspicious if Grahana is seen by a person and it’s falling on his/her Janma Rashi (position of Chandra in person's horoscope) or 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th or 12th Rashi from Janma Rashi. In this case Grahana causes Arishta (misfortunes, troubles and calamity). Thus now, especially those people whose Chandra is in Meena (Pisces), Kanya (Virgo), Simha (Leo), Karkata (Cancer), Mithuna (Gemini) and Mesha (Aries) should be very careful and not to look on Grahana.

    2) Nakshatra occupied by Chandra (Moon) at the time of Chandra Grahana (now it's Uttara Bhadrapada) must be left as it's highly malefic one without any remedy: 
    • for 6 months if the Grahana is full (as in case with current eclipse), 
    • 5 months if it is 3/4 part of Grahana
    • 3 months if it is half Grahana
    • one month if it is 1/4 part of Grahana
    • in all the elections.

    3) As classical sources also say, no auspicious work should be done:
    • 3 days before the Grahana if eclipsed Graha (Surya or Chandra) is set (is situated in the western horizon); 
    • 3 days after the Grahana if eclipsed Graha (Surya or Chandra) rises (when it’s situated in eastern horizon). 
    If half Grahana occurs at any other time (neither at rising nor at setting time of the luminaries) then 3 days before, the day of Grahana and 3 days after the Grahana, i.e., for 7 days no auspicious work should be done.

    4) Classical Jyotirvidyabharnam says that no auspicious work should be done:
    • in 7 days in case of full Grahana (as in case with current eclipse)
    • in 5 days in case of 3/4 part of Grahana
    • in 4 days in case of half Grahana
    • in 3 days in case of 1/4 part of Grahana.

    5) Effects concerning Grahana in one’s Janma Kundali (horoscope): if Chandra Grahana is falling on
    Janma Rashi – it causes injury and pain to the body (in case of current eclipse this rule is related to those people whose Chandra is in Meena (PiscesRashi)
    • the 2nd Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes loss of wealth / items (for those people whose Chandra is in Kumbha (AquariusRashi)
    • the 3rd Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes gain of fame and wealth (for those people whose Chandra is in Makara (CapricornRashi)
    • the 4th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes pain in body (for those people whose Chandra is in Dhanu (SagittariusRashi)
    • the 5th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes worries regarding progeny (for those people whose Chandra is in Vrshchika (ScorpioRashi)
    • the 6th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes brings comforts (for those people whose Chandra is in Tula (LibraRashi)
    • the 7th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes trouble to spouse, separation (for those people whose Chandra is in Kanya (VirgoRashi);
    • the 8th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes death (for those people whose Chandra is in Simha (LeoRashi)
    • the 9th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes insults (for those people whose Chandra is in Karkata (CancerRashi)
    • the 10th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes comforts (for those people whose Chandra is in Mithuna (GeminiRashi)
    • the 11th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes gains (for those people whose Chandra is in Vrishabha (TaurusRashi)
    • the 12th Rashi from Janma Rashi - it causes loss of wealth, increase in expenditure (for those people whose Chandra is in Mesha (AriesRashi)
    If an Grahana occurs at the birth constellation, death results.
