Surya Grahan (Solar Eclipse) on June 10, 2021

Hari Om

This is the first solar eclipse of the year 2021 and the second eclipse to happen in 15 days, before this the lunar eclipse happened on 26th May.

According to the Indian Almanac, the solar eclipse on 10th June 2021 will take place on the new moon day of Jyeshtha month. But it will not be visible in the country. Therefore there will be no sutak or observation of rituals. The special thing is that on this day there is also Vat Savitri fast and Shani Jayanti. This will be a Kankanakriti solar eclipse.

When the Sun, Moon and Earth are in a straight line or Rahu and Ketu are not exactly on the point of the Moon, but are high or low, then there will be a block eclipse and when the moon is far away, then Its shadow does not fall on the earth and the objects appear small. Due to the small size of its object, the middle part of the Sun is covered. Due to which the sunlight is visible all around. Surya Grahan occurs when the moon passes between the Earth and the Sun, and Moon fully or partially blocks the Sun. This Eclipse is considered as an inauspicious event.

This solar eclipse will not be visible in India

According to Indian almanac, the eclipse will start at 1:43 pm. Kankanakriti will start at 3:25 pm and will last till 4:59 pm. The middle of the eclipse will be at 4:12 pm. It will end at 6.41 pm. Kankanakriti will be visible during maximum 3 minutes 48 seconds. The northern part of the Americas, northern Canada, northern Europe and Asia, Russia, Greenland and the North Atlantic Ocean region will be fully visible.

However it is advisable to eat Lunch on June 10 before 12 -1 pm for better digestion/ health and to have evening snacks / dinner post 6.30 pm after kankanakriti.

People born on Mrigishirsha, Rohini, Krithika, Dhanishta, Chithra constellations are advised to chant Aditya Hridayam and Sri Vishnu Sahasranama during eclipse time (preferably 3.30-4.30 pm)

As per Vedic Astrology, Eclipse period is a hard or bad time and no auspicious activities can be carried out in this time. During this period one should not undertake any auspicious or growth oriented activities. It is strongly believed that it brings bad luck to all the ventures started during the Grahan. Due to the Solar and Lunar eclipse, many changes occur in nature, sometimes leading to devastating events such as earthquakes, heavy floods or other natural calamities.

Certain planetary adverse configurations coupled with Solar eclipse do not rule out violent accidents, air crash, attacks or war between nations or groups within a moon cycle.

Post June 10 through June 24, Covid-19 impact is expected to come under reasonable control gradually though some volume of cases can be there still in some areas until Aug 14. A new wave of attack during Nov- Jan 2022 astrologically may be there in India, US and Europe and hopefully serious vaccination drive and social distancing can protect us from its severity and impact.

Let us strictly adhere to all Govt. regulations and advises of medical experts released from time to time and observe face masking, social distancing norms through out this period.

During Grahana period, reciting Stotras such as Sri Lalitha Sahasranama , Sri Rudram, MahaMrtunjaya Mantra and Sri Vishnu Sahasranama or doing mantra Japa is highly auspicious.
