The reasons for the earthquake to happen are being studied by scientists all over the world. If we see there are astrological reasons also for the earthquakes and one of them are the eclipses.
1. Earthquakes normally follow close on the heels of eclipses and especially in the countries where eclipses occur in the tenth or the fourth house.
2. Taurus and scorpio signs are notorious for earthquakes especially when Saturn, rahu, mars and Jupiter are in the signs.
3. When there are two eclipses are coming in to a fortnight then there is possibility of earthquake. When an earthquake occured in Gujarat in 2001 there were two eclipses in a fortnight.
Eclipses : Solar Eclipse, mostly affects the government people and the persons who are in authority. Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948 following a solar eclipse which fell in his Natal mars on November 12, 1947. In the horoscope of Indira Gandhi who was shot dead on 31st October 1984, the solar eclipse of May 25 fell in Taurus sign opposite to her natal sun. This ecliptic point was aspected by retrograde Mars who was conjuct with retrograde Saturn in Libra Sign. This afflicted ecliptic point took place in Taurus lagna of India in Rohini nakshatra, well known for causing tragedies.
According to Varahamihira if there are two eclipses, one Solar and other lunar, in one and the same month, kings would be destroyed as a result of revolt of their army, and there would be bloody battles. He further said that should a solar eclipse occur at the end of fortnight after a lunar eclipse, people would become unruly and unjust in behavior and couples would be at their loggerheads.
It is written in Brihat Samhita that eclipses on airy and fixed sign would set forth cyclones and disputes with other states. In airy signs it may lead to disturbances in the air such as plane crashes.
Eclipses occurring on human signs would adversely affect people and animals. It is also observed that effect of eclipses in movable or cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricon) would be over soon while in fixed signs they have a lasting effect.
Avoidable and recommendable works during Surya Grahan and Chandra Grahan:
• It is advisable to avoid performing any important work or deal.
• After Grahan, many Hindus perform ritual bath. Take meal only after the ritual bath. Taking a holy dip in rivers is highly auspicious.
• Many hindus observe fasting on the day of grahan.
• Avoid outside food during grahan.
• Avoid eating the food which is cooked before Grahan. Take the food which is cooked after Grahan. People can eat the food which is prevented from Soothak(Ashouch). To prevent food from soothak, just spill some basil leaves, til seeds or keep grass blades (Durva grass) in the food before grahan. It has scientific reason also, keeping grass blades on stored food or water cleans the water and removes the bacteria from it.
• During Surya Grahan, reciting Surya Stotras such as Aditya Hridayam; Maha Mritunjaya Mantram and Vishnu Stotras is highly auspicious.
The stotra given below states the above things:
Sarveshameva varnaanaam soothakam Rahu darshane.
