The time when they are aligned is known as eclipse season, which happens twice a year. There are four types of Solar Eclipse, namely: Total Solar Eclipse, Annular Solar Eclipse, Partial Solar Eclipse and Hybrid Solar Eclipse. The First Solar Eclipse of 2023 will be a hybrid eclipse and will take place after a decade. The last one happened in 2013. 

It will take place in the month of Vaisakh month on the Krishna Paksha Amavasya. This Solar Eclipse will not be visible in India. Learned astrologers suggest that the impacts of this Solar Eclipse will especially be seen and felt on pregnant women. 

Significance Of Solar Eclipse

Like many other cultures of the world, Solar Eclipses are said to be an inauspicious time in the Hindu culture as well. 

It is said that the two nodes and malefic planets Rahu and Ketu cast a shadow or ‘chaya’ on the Sun and render it powerless for sometime. Both Rahu-Ketu have exemplary powers in Vedic astrology as they are thought to snatch the power of planets they are conjunct with in the horoscope. 

As per Hindu mythology, eclipse is said to be the result of the enmity between ‘Asuras’ Rahu-Ketu and the ‘Devtas’ Sun-Moon in the quest to drink the elixir of life, ‘Amrit’ at the time of Amrit Manthan. It is believed that Rahu and Ketu, keeping in tune with the enmity, create an eclipse over the Moon and Sun twice every year.

In Hindu tradition, Sutak Kaal is observed from 12 hours before the eclipse and is said to last till 12 hours after the eclipse is over. It is believed that the environment is impure during Sutak and extra precautions should be taken to avoid any harmful side effects due to impurities, especially for pregnant women as the eclipse can harm the fetus and the mother.

Do’s & Don’ts For Pregnant Women During Solar Eclipse

  • Firstly a pregnant woman should not view the Grahan at all and must stay indoors during solar eclipse.
  • Use of knives or any other sharp weapons or objects must be prohibited during Grahan. It is believed that cutting fruits and vegetables during Grahan Kaal will lead to the unborn child being born with some defect.
  • Some scriptures suggest that women should sit only on a bed with Durva Grass and chant the Santana Gopala Mantra.
  • Pregnant women must take a bath before and after the Solar Eclipse to ensure not having any skin allergies but should not bathe during the eclipse.

  • During the eclipse, pregnant women should be cautious while sitting and getting up. They must watch out and maintain proper postures.
  • Putting locks in the house with pregnant women should be avoided as it may negatively impact the mother and the child. 
  • Avoid wearing items made of metals such as pins, hair clips, broches, jewelry, etc. 
  • Sleeping during the eclipse hours must be avoided by pregnant women since it is considered inauspicious.
  • Pregnant women should not watch the solar eclipse with naked eyes.
  • Avoid consuming any type of food during the period of eclipse.

Though these harmful effects of Solar Eclipse are not scientifically proven, pregnant women in India have been following these traditions and precautions for ages now. In Hindu culture, it is believed that because the eclipses are anti nature so it is bound to have negative effects, this is the only point which can be used to oppose scientists who believe that the ‘Grahan’ has no visible impact on pregnant women or the unborn child they are carrying. There is no solid research supporting the negative or harmful impacts of the eclipse but we still believe taking precautions is the best thing to do, for the best interest of both the mother and child. Like it’s always said ‘Precaution is better than cure’.
