What a beauty it is to see the moon in its unusual form, when it passes directly behind the earth into its umbra and is in the bloody red color. But India fosters superstitions to lunar eclipse because of all the ancient believes. The magnificent view beholds a lot of myths which some people term as "facts".Some of these myths are as follows:
1. Lunar eclipse is a big no to pregnant women
They are not suppose to step out because it is believed that the kid will be born with an impairment. Also, They must refrain themselves from touching sharp objects as it may leave the baby with a birthmark.We don't know how much of it is true but it is strongly believed in India.
2. Finish your meals before the eclipse
As explained by Sadguru, what would happen in a full lunar eclipse in 28 days in a subtle way, happens in 2-3 days. The earths energy is mistaking this eclipse as a full cycle of the moon and anything that happens faster than the natural tendency tends to leave an impact the same goes with the planets. With this scientific explanation, it gets tough to shift our minds from this superstition.
3. Time to take a headbath( if you don't take it often, now is the time)
It is considered as a bad omen if you leave for work without taking a head bath.
4. Forget to get paid that day:
People avoid working on such days thinking it brings bad luck.
5. Make your food more sacred by placing a tulsi on it.
These are the top 5 superstitions of a lunar eclipse in India some with a scientific explanation and factual figures and others on ancient beliefs. Now it's upto you to cherry pick the best.
