On April 7, 2016, the transiting Sun was at 17Ari36 square transiting Pluto at 17Cap27. I find what you say interesting: “The intense experience will trigger deeply buried psychological issues involving fears or death or losing control, being abused, tortured or persecuted. These deeply rooted fears may even be past life relate. The Solar Eclipse in Gemini from June 10 of 2021 represents a propitious moment for letting go of the past, but only after we offer ourselves enough time for closure following some less pleasant events. It especially affects the Aries, Gemini, Cancer, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius, Capricorn. A Total Solar Eclipse on December 4, 2021 – Sagittarius.

The new year has new things for us in the kitty including multiple Surya Grahans’ scheduled to happen in 2021. Enthusiasts invariably watch out for such cool phenomena as they bring forth quite a bit of excitement and a sight to behold. And if you too are one of these enthusiasts, then here is everything you would love to know about the Surya Grahan 2021.

Solar Eclipse 2021

Like every year, this year too, the world is set to witness multiple Solar Eclipse. The phenomenon of Surya Grahan, for the unaware, is scientifically an instance when the New Moon moves between the Sun and Earth thus blocking the Sun’s rays while casting a shadow on some parts of the Earth.

However, in Vedic astrology, Surya Grahan is said to be caused by the notorious planet Rahu and his eternal feud with the Surya Dev.

Actually, the story has Rahu fraudly stealing some of the immortality Amrit that rose during Samudra Manthan. However, Suryadev and Chandradev, who were seeing all this, complained about the same to Lord Vishnu. Angered by the conduct, Vishnu cut Rahu into two pieces using his Sudarshan Chakra. But Rahu, by then, had consumed immortality nectar and thus didn’t die. Both, his head and torso, attained immortality and his torso was named Ketu, while the head entertained the name Rahu.

Since then, Rahu and Ketu became enemies to Sun and Moon. And thus they try to swallow them by eclipsing them. However, the fact that Rahu and Ketu are shadow planets, they fail to swallow the Sun and the Moon.

Types of Surya Grahan

There are as many as 4 types of Solar Eclipse based on how much the Sun disk is eclipsed by the moon. And these would be:

Partial Solar Eclipse – This occurs when the Moon partially obscures the Sun’s disk and casts only its penumbra on Earth.

Annular Solar eclipse – Annular Surya Grahan occurs when the Sun and the Moon are closer to each other and thus the Moon is not big enough to eclipse the whole of the Sun. Thus, as the Moon eclipses the Sun, the outer part of the Sun is still visible forming a ring of fire.

Total solar eclipse – As the name suggests, it is the type of Suraj Grahan that happens when the New Moon passes between the Sun and the Earth, and entirely covers the Sun.

Hybrid Solar eclipse – Hybrid solar eclipse occur when the same eclipse changes from an annular to a total solar eclipse or vice versa.

Solar Eclipse 2021

In 2021, the world will witness as many as two Surya Grahans. Below are Surya Grahan 2021 time and date and the countries that will get to behold this phenomenon.

June 10, 2021 – The first Surya Grahan of 2021 will happen on 10 June 2021. It would be an annular solar eclipse. This eclipse will be partially visible in India around 1:42 pm IST and conclude at 6:41 pm. In addition, this eclipse will also be visible in the northern part of North America. Parts of Europe, Asia, northern Canada, Russia and Greenland will also get to see the partial solar eclipse.

December 4, 2021 – This would be the second and the last solar eclipse of 2021. This eclipse will be a total solar eclipse. It will be visible in the South of Australia, South of Africa, America, Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean and Antarctica.

Lunar Eclipse 2021

Other than a couple of Solar Eclipses, there are two Chandra Grahan in 2021 that we would get to behold.

26 May 2021– India, on 26 May, will witness the first lunar eclipse of 2021. This will be a full lunar eclipse. Other than India, the full lunar eclipse will be visible from East Asia, Australia, the Pacific Ocean and the Americas.

Effect of Solar Eclipses on Zodiac Signs

Solar Eclipse affects all of us differently. During a solar eclipse, as the Sun, which symbolises our external personality, is obscured by the moon, which represents our mind and emotions, the solar eclipse often first begins internally before concerning our emotional relationships with others.

Also, the fact that it is the moon that casts its shadow on the Earth during a solar eclipse, the Moon Sign of an individual is one of the Vedic elements that sees changes either positively or negatively.

For example, eclipses in Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) indicate conflicts, wars, fire disasters, etc. On the other hand, the eclipse on Earth signs, which are Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo, brings agricultural problems. Meanwhile, Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) signify stormy winds, disease, and famine and Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) denote marine hazards, floods, war, and high mortality amongst common people.

The Pisces new moon on Saturday, March 13, 2021, is very close to the alignment of Venus and Neptune. So the spiritual meaning of the new moon March 2021 astrology relates to idealistic love, compassion, and empathy.

The March 2021 new moon is good for finding your dream lover or adding romance to an existing relationship. But a challenging fixed star on the same degree as the new moon does bring the risk of deception and disappointment. So it is important not to over idealize romantic interests.

New Moon March 2021 Astrology

The new moon on March 13, 2021, at 23°03′ Pisces is close to Venus conjunct Neptune in both time and space. They occur on the same day and only a few degrees apart:


  • 05:21 am – 23 ♓ 03 – New Moon March 2021
  • 11:07 pm – 20 ♓ 45 – Venus conjunct Neptune

New Moon Meaning

Sun conjunct Moon (0°00′) represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28-day cycle. It gives an invigorating burst of energy and initiative. But it also brings emotional balance, not irrationally emotional, and not too cold and calculating.

So this is an excellent time for making a fresh start, turning over a new leaf, or starting a new project. You can also question old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress.

New Moon Aspects

New Moon conjunct Venus (3°13′) brings love, peace, harmony, and beauty, with a focus on your love relationships, creativity, and finances. This pleasant, affectionate, charming, and sociable influence is a good omen for friendships and romance.

So this is a good new moon for seeking pleasure through sex, amusement, entertainment and partying, but also for relaxing in comfort or having fun with children. Good fashion sense and an eye for a bargain make this a good time for shopping and decorating.

However, Venus can sometimes make you lazy and indulgent, especially with other challenging aspects or fixed stars. So with new moon March 2021 also conjunct Neptune and a difficult fixed star, there is the potential for relationship or financial difficulties.

Sun conjunct Neptune (2°20′) increases your sensitivity, intuition, and empathy. Being more affected by the thoughts and feelings of others and the environment can be a positive or negative experience. The result depends on the people and conditions you find yourself in.

Negative people or environments could drain your energy and leave you feeling depressed, scared, or ill. Being so caring and compassionate, your kindness will be seen as a weakness in the eyes of salespeople, loan sharks, drug dealers, and psychic vampires.

Setting boundaries will allow you to enjoy a sense of togetherness with loved ones. You may benefit from involvement in environmental or social causes. Your interest in the spiritual world will be stimulated but again, you may be susceptible to false prophets and conspiracy theories.

Venus conjunct Neptune (0°53′) brings the potential for a new love relationship or more compassion and spiritual bonding in an existing relationship. This is a romantic, dreamy and idealistic alignment that enhances your imagination and creativity. So this is a good new moon for musical and artistic projects, as well as for relaxing or partying.

However, there is a risk of loss, deception, disappointment, or scandal. Especially if you over idealize a potential partner or ignore the harsh realities of a challenging relationship. Daydreaming and laziness could also lead to problems if you have serious commitments at work or home.

However, the new moon is conjunct the challenging fixed star Markab. So the tendency towards idealistic love does have the potential to make you vulnerable to a broken heart and disappointment. Some people may see your kindness as a weakness and try to take advantage of you.
