Surya Grahan on 22 July 2009 – Effect of Sampoorn Surya Grahanam on various rashis or zodiac signs

Surya Grahan (Solar Eclipse) that occurs on 22 July, 2009 is the first grahanam in this new Hindu year. Hindus are mainly concerned about the Surya Grahan because of its extreme effects or results on people. Surya Grahan of 22 July, 2009 has a great importance because it is a sampoorna surya grahanam (total solar eclipse). Surya Grahan may show some bad effects on natives of some rashis (zodiac signs).

It is interesting that this Grahan is a total solar eclipse in some regions of India whereas some parts of India will view this as total lunar eclipse. In some parts of North India (Bihar and Madhya Pradesh), this grahanam is a total lunar eclipse. However, it will be partial eclipse (Pakshik graham) in most of the places in India. It will be viewed as partial solar eclipse in Bangalore, Chennai, Mumbai, Kolkata, Surat, Delhi and Hyderabad.

Time of Surya Grahan – Grahan Kaal on July 22, 2009:
Surya Grahan begins at 5.25 hours in the early morning and ends at 7.40 hours.
Grahan Sparsh kaal – 05.28 hrs
Suryodayam (Sunrise) – 05.52 hrs
Grahan madhyakaal – 06.24 hrs
Grahan Moksh kaal – 07.21 hrs

Grahan Gochaar – Effect of Surya Grahan on different rashis or zodiac signs:
As per the Grahan Gochaar, it is advisable to the natives of Pushyami nakshatra (birth star constellation) and the natives of Karka (Karkatak), Simha (Leo), Dhanu (Sagittarius) rasis to avoid seeing the Surya Grahan of 22 July, 2009.

Surya Grahan that occurs on 22 July, 2009 is most favorable and brings out good results to the natives of Vrushabh (Taurus), Kanya (Virgo), Tula (Libra) and Kumbh (Aquarius) rasis or zodiac signs.

This Surya Grahan makes average results for the natives of Mithun (Gemini), Vruschik (Scorpio), Makar (Capricorn) and Meen (Pisces) rasis or zodiac signs.

This Surya Grahan is unfavorable and bad for the natives of Mesh (Aries), Karkataka (Cancer), Simha (Leo) and Dhanu (Sagittarius) rasis or zodiac signs.

  10. Venkateshwar says:

    Hello sir, nice information on solar eclipse and lunar eclipse. I read your post on scientific reason behind the roitual followed by hindus on grahan. great info. I want to know one thing, why temples are remain closed during Surya grahan or chandra grahan? But i read somewhere that any puja or vratham observed at the time grahan gives good results. Please explain.

    • NAVEEN KUMAR SANAGALA says:

      There is no scientific reason behind the closing of temples or mandirs during solar or lunar grahans. But to remove or slay off the bad effects of grahan, temples are closed. After the release of grahan, some grahana shanti pujas are performed and open the temples. Grahan kaal is the very auspicious time to observe any vrat or saadhana or any other rituals.

  11. Divya says:

      Total Solar Eclipse or Sampoorna Surya Grahanam is not visible in USA, UK and Canada. However, the effect will be started before 4 – 5 hours. Exactly I could not find the time of the Grahanam effect in Ohio or USA. This solar eclipse on July 22, 2009, will be seen in India, Myanmar, Pakistan, Japan, China, Sri Lanka and some otehr Asian countries

    Thanks,

    • NAVEEN KUMAR SANAGALA says:

      Please check whether your birthday (to which rashi you belong) falls on the category of rashis on which this Grahan effect is more. If you are one of the natives of that rashi, then please consult any good pundit. He will perform some Grahan Shanti Puja or Grahana Dosha pooja.

    • NAVEEN KUMAR SANAGALA says:

      Don’t worry. Just consult a pandit or priest in a temple and perform Grahan Shanti puja or Grahan Dosha pooja to get rid of bad effects of this Solar Eclipse.

  14. nihar says:

  16. Suryakanth says:

    HI Sir

    Would you please confirm, what do you mean by “Pushyami nakshatra (birth star constellation)” does it mean by date of birth or by name………..
    Thank you.

    • NAVEEN KUMAR SANAGALA says:

      Pushyami Nakshatra (birthstar constellation) means, on which nakshatra a native is born or on the day of the native’s birth which nakshatra is there. As per traditional Hindu Astrology, Nakshatras are important rather than the dates.

  23. Aalok says:

    My birth date is 23rd March.

    According to western astrology, my zodiac sign is Aries. But I guess, its different in Indian astrology. It is Kark rashi I assume.

    Are the rashis given in your article the Indian ones or the western ones.

    What jaap should I do to get rid of the ill effects.

    • NAVEEN KUMAR SANAGALA says:

      All the signs and rashis given in my articles or in Hindupad are of Indian Astrology related. Aditya Hridayam and Bala Gopala Mantram are recommended to recite on the day of Surya Grahanam. Some other Surya Stotras are also be recited on the day.

    Can you give me the timings of the Surya Grahan on 22nd July 2009 in west africa (ghana)

  29. narendra Nayak says:

    The talks of surya grahan causing problems are scare mongering by the vested interests who want to make a fast buck from scaring gullible people. The very concept of rashis is stupidity personified. The predictions like terrorism will increase etc. are all very general and also the warnings to the politicians. They take good care of themselves and dont need astrologers(pun intended) to tell them that!
    Let the asstrologers say exactly who are the politicians who are going to be killed due to the solar eclipse! How come the devastating tsunami happned in a year there was no such?

  30. T.Hemagovindam says:
