New Delhi: In traditional cultures of India, eclipses are symbolized as Rahu and Ketu (the Lunar nodes) “swallowing” the Sun and the Moon. Either of the eclipses happen when the Nodes are usually conjunct either the Sun or the Moon on a Full Moon day or a New Moon day.
What are the astrological effects of the eclipse
Eclipses are a major event where skywatchers, Astronomers and Astrologers get busy. In ancient days eclipses are mentioned in many texts and scriptures and almost all of them were not good omen. Even in those days none of those mentioned disasters which were linked to eclipses passed without causing any damage. People suffered and later while investigating the reason for the disaster, it was easy for them to put the blame on Eclipses. In the early days, a natural disaster was a rare thing because the environment was very much balanced. People in those days will remember even a small natural disaster for centuries and will be mentioned in great scriptures.
Any person these days can perform simple research on the internet and can find a list of natural, political and other mundane events happened in a country (for example in India) and the list will be alarming every year for the last 100 years. Do you think Eclipse was the reason behind all of these events happening every year?
A person born in a specific rising sign and moon sign and planetary positions are not going to be influenced by these eclipses. There are large no: of people born in Capricorn and Cancer, they all will behave normally as before fighting with their day to day problems. There were eclipses earlier and no one being in some specific sign, behaved in an awkward manner and that is the truth like daylight.
