People in India have strong belief in the eclipses of sun and moon and they have a lot of traditional rituals on these days. It is not a blind belief that they do have effect on human health. It should be based on some ancient scientific belief which might have been lost in course of time, superseded by other forces.

Lunar eclipse

A lunar eclipse happens as the result of the Earth's shadow on the moon. It is a natural process when the sun, the earth and the moon come in a perfect line of alignment.

Ancient beliefs about lunar eclipse

Some religions in the eastern world believe that pregnant women should stay indoors during an eclipse to prevent the baby from developing birth defects. Hindus also believe that during these periods water becomes undrinkable and food becomes inedible.

People still believe that you should not walk in the open air when there is lunar eclipse. Pregnant women do have effect on their wombs. Children born to women who exposed themselves to lunar eclipse were affected and children born to them had defects either physically or mentally.

Still people believe

There are many people who believe that if a moon is in a bad position like eclipse it may cause heart related diseases, breathing trouble, coughs, colds, insomnia, stress, impatience, insecurity, indecisiveness, fear and mood swings. Exposing yourself to open lunar eclipse may even lead to mental imbalance and lunacy. Just think why is it called "lunacy"?

There are strong evidences that lunar eclipse does have some effect on the hormones, especially a woman's monthly cycle and fertility.

Even today, many people who go for astrology believe that a good moon position will bring you fortunes such as, honor, fame, spiritual energy, financial fortune, charming personality, good health and balanced physique.

Astrology and lunar eclipse

Astrology has calculated that the lunar eclipse occurs on June 15th, 2011, when the Moon is at approximately 24 degrees of Sagittarius, opposing the Sun at 24 degrees Gemini, and is a Total Lunar Eclipse. It has presumed that there may be many effects on individuals as well as societies.


What does modern science say?

A modern theory called Transylvanian effect or Transylvanian hypothesis in intellectual literature (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunar_effect) presumes that lunar eclipse may affect body and mind as an impact on the circadian rhythm of human body. Studies say that human and creature activities, physiological process, and actions undergo alterations caused through seasonal changes circadian rhythms, and lunar cycles. They also state that the effects of lunar cycle on humans and animals have been much less explored. Although medical world warns about looking at solar eclipse with naked eye, it does not say anything about lunar eclipse.

Effects of the lunar cycle on humans

Even though the medical world has not reached at any conclusion that eclipses have a physical effect on people, the beliefs that eclipses are capable of producing psychological effect may pave way to discoveries on this subject. The beliefs that the moon can alter people's behavior, their health, wealth or even their luck may lead to cosmological influence on human life.

Get ready to study the next total lunar eclipse which will be visible by North America and other places on April 15, 2014.
