A partial Lunar eclipse will occur in the 1st quarter of Utrasala constellation in the Zodiacal sign of Sagittarius (Dhanu) when the Moon will pass through the earth’s umbral shadow beginning at 12.13 am (local time) on July 17, 2019. 

The greatest eclipse will occur at 03.00 am on July 17 and the partial eclipse will end at 04.29 am July 17.  It will be visible in our country and most parts of Asia, Australia, Africa, Europe and South America. 

This partial Lunar eclipse follows the full Solar eclipse which occurred on July 03. 

According to the ancient Indian Rishis it is inauspicious to start any important event in life or embark on any plan or program for that matter on the day of a Solar or Lunar eclipse and during the three days both preceding and following the day of the eclipse counting a total of seven days.

It is also the general opinion of the savants of Astrology that it is  inauspicious to commence any important event or plan during the running of either the Zodiacal sign or the constellation in which the eclipse occurs either on the day of the eclipse or within the seven days preceding or the following the day of the eclipse which add up to 15 days.
