However, not all will be visible in India and hence Sutak Kaal will be operative for those seen in the country leaving aside those which are not visible in India.

Lunar Eclipse 2021
In pure scientific terms, a lunar eclipse may be described as the phenomenon when the Earth moves in between the Moon and Sun and obstructs the sunlight reflected by the lunar surface. However, in astrology, lunar eclipse exerts deep influence on our zodiac signs.
This astronomical event of lunar eclipse activates the North and South nodes popularly known as Rahu and Ketu in our birth charts, as the moon passes across an elliptical rotating around the zodiac at a constant rate. The placement of these two nodes in our birth chart symbolizes our past and future.
Solar Eclipse 2021
A Solar Eclipse occurs when the Moon comes between the Earth and the Sun during its rotations. In such a case, the Sun gets either partially or fully covered. The sudden darkness engulfs the Earth and the phenomenon is commonly known as Solar Eclipse, it takes place on the day of Amavasya since the Moon remain invisible from the Earth.
Effects of Solar and Lunar eclipses
We generally prefer to stay in our comfort zones avoiding any painful or restless situation. Solar and lunar eclipses are dramatic events that serve as a turning point in one’s life. They give us a cosmic kick off the fence putting us into action.
If you’ve been looking around for a clear sign, an eclipse will speed up the process of finding those clues.
Eclipses are the agents of change. They occur four to six times a year and turn lives upside-down. Eclipses help break stereotypes and shift dynamics. However, astrologers advice waiting for a week or so before taking any major decision so that eclipse energy settles down properly.
Solar eclipse: Time to start fresh
Solar eclipse occurs at amavasya or new moon day. During a solar eclipse, the moon comes directly between the Earth and Sun (the conjunction of the Sun and the moon). This brief time of conjunction blocks out the Sun’s light and we temporarily loose our sense of reality.
In astrology, a solar eclipse could mark a bold beginning, showing us a new path that we hadn’t ever imagined for ourselves. It is surprising to know that a solar eclipse has a broader vision in store for us. We as humans focus on what’s in front of us that certainly limit our perspectives, and may cause us to miss out unseen opportunities. Solar eclipses snatch away the known one temporarily, forcing us to consider unexplored options. These cosmic power outages provide for immense growth during their occurrences. This is when we should leap into new and unexplored leaving behind the familiar one.
Lunar eclipses: go with the flow
Lunar eclipses occur at full moons. A lunar eclipse occurs when the moon is almost in its full state and enters the shadow of the Earth. During a Lunar eclipse, the Earth remains exactly between the Sun and the moon (luminaries are in opposite directions). A brief spell of intense hues of reds, browns and greys adorning the sky.
According to astrology, lunar eclipses give us a glimpse into our inner side. It is a time of introspection, we all consider us good and kind souls but lunar eclipses help us to discover our true selves. Sometimes it is shocking to know how many negative emotions are hidden inside us and this is the time to ponder over them.
Understanding the fact that we have strong negative emotions of fear, anger, jealousy and rage is the first step towards curbing them. If we stop judging and accept the bright and dark side with equal ease then lunar eclipses can prove to be potent moments of self-discovery.
Why our ancestors feared eclipses
Since ancient days, Eclipses have earned bad names. These were both revered and feared. Our ancestors were baffled by the Sun’s “disappearance” from the sky during a solar eclipse, so many mythical stories sprung up describing angry gods eating the Sun! Because eclipses have strong relation with climate catastrophes like earthquakes, hurricanes and tsunamis, many cultures believed that eclipses are the anger of the gods. During lunar eclipses, people were known to act lunatic. The complete lunar eclipses are sometimes called Blood Moons because of the reddish-orange glow of the Moon during the eclipse.
