“Chaitre Kaveenam Lekhakanancha gayakanam Dhana Kshaya”

What is Chandra Grahan and how it occurs?
Chandra Grahan (Lunar Eclipse) is a stage of Moons cycle, where the Earth comes between the Moon and the Sun. Lunar eclipse occurs at a moment when the Moon, Sun and Earth are absolutely aligned, or reach nearer, with the Earth in the middle of the three. Then the Moon comes across through some part of the Earths shadow and darkens the planet Moon. Usually, Lunar eclipse occurs on the Full Moon Day (Purnima).
Effects of Lunar Eclipse
Usually, the Lunar Eclipse has been quoted as a bad omen. As per the Hindu astrology or mythology, Moon administrates the personal and domestic issues – the social and psychological behavior. Moon does not affect the administration part, rulers, politics or the government of a country or the society. Lunar Eclipse affects more on individual side.
