As we have said, this lunar eclipse will be visible in India but its Sutak period will not be valid. To know what is the reason behind this, let us know the opinions of some well-known astrologers of the country and also AstroSage.

“Solar and lunar eclipses have a significant impact on our lives. However, this one is a penumbral lunar eclipse, not a complete eclipse, and the truth is that, because the Moon does not become part of the eclipse, only its surface is tarnished, so it cannot be given the status of a complete eclipse. This is why its sutak is also not valid, so people do not even need to panic about it. Having said and done everything,it should not be forgotten that the Moon has control over important activities in our life, so worshiping Lord Shiva on this day provides the best results. ”Acharya Mragaank Sharma

Let us now move on to know the take of another astrologer of ours. 

“The last lunar eclipse of the year, which will take place on the day of Kartik Purnima, will be a Penumbral lunar eclipse. During this lunar eclipse, the Moon’s rays will not turn dark but it’s aura will fade for some time. Often, when a lunar eclipse occurs, the Moon first passes through this position, and then the reflection of the moon starts to appear black. But in this eclipse, the eclipse will end before the Moon gets blackened. Therefore, it will be called a Penumbral eclipse, not a proper eclipse. This lunar eclipse will end before lunarlon in many parts of India, so in some parts of the country where moonrise will happen before 5.23 pm, lunar eclipse can be seen before it.”Acharya Sunil Barmola

Even in the world of astrology, the occurrence of lunar eclipse has been considered very important. The Sutak period takes place before the lunar eclipse begins. Due to sutak, negative energy gets absorbed in the atmosphere, so during the Sutak period some do’s and don’ts have been mentioned which should be followed and some such works are also told which should not be done during this period. 

During the Sutak period, the doors of the temples are also closed and worshiping is prohibited during this period.

Note: At the time of solar eclipse, Sutak is applied 12 hours before and 9 hours after the lunar eclipse.

After this, the eclipse begins. After the eclipse is over, a bath is taken, the house and temple are cleaned, Mantras are recited, and only all other works resume.

Things to Keep in Mind During the Eclipse
