Solar and Lunar Eclipse are considered inauspicious events in Sanatan Dharma. In such a situation, today we are going to reveal to you some important facts related to Solar Eclipse in this article.
1. Lord Sun in Vedic Astrology
Sun is considered a special planet and holds high importance in Vedic Astrology. Although it is considered to be a star from the astronomical point of view, Vedic Astrology has a different view of the Sun. According to Vedic Astrology, Sun is the benefactor of the father in the horoscope of a native. At the same time, it is considered the karaka planet of a husband when evaluating any female native’s kundli. Sun is considered to be the ruling lord of the Leo and Pisces zodiac sign amongst all the twelve zodiac signs. Sun is said to be exalted in Aries and debilitated in Libra.
If the planet Sun is in a position to roll out auspicious results while being placed in the horoscope of a native, then such a person earns a lot of name in the society. Along with this, he/she attains a high position in the field of work. If the Sun is weakly posited, then minimum results are obtained in spite of immense hard work. Eye-related problems and High or Low Blood Pressure can prove to be troublesome for the natives with weak Sun.

3. Scientific Significance Behind Solar Eclipse
From a scientific point of view, Sun is located in the center of our solar system and all the planets revolve around it. There are satellites of planets orbiting the Sun, just like how the Moon is the satellite of the Earth. These satellites revolve around their planet. In such a situation, a special astronomical situation is created in the Solar System when the Moon orbiting the Earth comes between the Sun and the Earth and prevents the Sun’s light from reaching the Earth. This planetary event is called Solar Eclipse.
4. Religious Significance Behind Solar Eclipse
According to mythological beliefs, Solar Eclipse is related to the event of Samudra Manthan or the Churning of the Ocean. According to this mythological legend, Lord Sun and Lord Moon had informed Lord Vishnu about the fact that among the Gods, an Asura named Swarbhanu had consumed the Nectar Of Immortality or Amrit by disguising himself as one of the Devtas. Hearing this, Lord Vishnu put an end to Swarbhanu’s life by separating his torso from his head with his Sudarshan Chakra.
Since Swarbhanu had consumed the Nectar Of Immortality or Amrit, he did not die. As a result, his head became Rahu and the torso became Ketu. It is believed that every year from this day onwards, these two shadow planets, Rahu and Ketu, try to attack the Sun, due to which Solar Eclipse takes place.

5. What Is An Annular Solar Eclipse?
The Moon continues to follow its orbit and revolve around the Earth, whereas the Earth revolves around the Sun. In such a situation, while the Moon is revolving around the Earth, there seems to be relatively more distance than required between the Moon and the Earth, thereby making the Moon looks smaller. In such a situation when the Solar Eclipse occurs, the Moon fails to cover the Sun’s brightness completely due to its small size. As a result, the Sun appears to be a big, ring of fire, also known as Annulus. For this reason, this Solar Eclipse is called an Annular Solar Eclipse.
