Lunar Eclipse As Per Vedic Astrology

The Sun and the Moon are considered as the life-giving source to humans and the existence of life can’t be imagined on earth without them. According to Vedic Astrology, eclipses are caused when the shadow planets Rahu and Ketu swallow (grad) the Sun and the Moon. As per the Vedic belief, eclipses are not considered auspicious especially for pregnant women.

Therefore, during the time of the lunar eclipse, pregnant women need to be extra alert and conscious for the well-being of the child and their own health because they fully represent the Moon and life-giving source to her child.

On this very basis, we are enlightening you with the impact of the Lunar Eclipse on pregnant women and the rituals to be followed. If adopted such principles, they can prove to be extremely beneficial. Before going further, let’s know some interesting things concerning the Lunar Eclipse.

Religious Aspect: As per beliefs, at anyhow, if the rays of the Moon fall on a pregnant woman, there are chances that the child forming in the womb will be born with Doshas in Kundli. 

Scientific Aspect: According to the scientific aspect, Science states that the Moon is very close to the earth during the eclipse and its gravitational force remains very high. In such conditions, there is a great possibility of major changes in the hormones of a pregnant woman. 

However, the Moon is the symbol of fertility and in such situations, the timings of the lunar eclipse are considered to be auspicious and favourable for those who are in the phase of ovulation for pregnancy. 

Because of these two reasons, it is always suggested to pregnant women to stay inside during the eclipse and it has been going on over a long period of time. By doing so, they can protect their child nurturing in their womb. Along with this, pregnant women must avoid using pointed objects such as scissors, knives, sewing, cutting, etc. Any activity concerning such things can impact health adversely.
