An annular Solar eclipse will occur in the 3rd quarter of Moola constellation in the Zodiacal sign of Sagittarius (Dhanu) when the Moon will entirely cover the Sun creating a ring of fire at its edges beginning 09.04 hours (local time) on Thursday December 26.

The greatest eclipse will occur at 10.47 hours on December 26 Thursday and the eclipse will end at 13.35 hours the same day.  It will be visible in the North of our country, Arabian Peninsula, South India andseveral other parts in Asia.

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.
