An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun, causing the Sun to look like an annulus (ring), blocking most of the Sun’s light. An annular eclipse appears as a partial eclipse over a region thousands of kilometres wide.
The annular eclipse would be visible from a 171 to 225 Km wide track which would traverse through Australia, eastern Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands and the Gilbert Islands. While the partial phases of the eclipse would be visible mainly from Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.
This eclipse is not visible in Europe, America, Africa and majority of Asian countries.
Since eclipse occurs with moon conjunct ketu(south node) in aries(mesha rasi) and moon being in Bharani constellation, people born under aries ascendant and moon signs.
Also people living in countries where eclipse is visible and if are born under this sign, should take care of their health during the month of may.
People born with moon in constellations of bharani, poorvaphalguni and poorvashada and going through benefic venus dasa (born under ascendants/lagnas of gemini, virgo, libra, capricorn and aquarius) should also take care of their personal health and expenditure this month.
However, this eclipse is good for those going through venus (sukra) dasa which is not a benefic for them.
Also this eclipse occurs on a newmoon day with moon, sun, mars, mercury, ketu in conjunction.
This creates mental tensions, insomnia, suicidal tendencies, depression, loss of self esteem, uncontrollable expenditure, ill-health for people born in libra and aries signs.
In general, this eclipse is beneficial for those born in or countries/states with their natal charts having ascendants/moon signs of Taurus, Gemini, Scorpio and Aquarius.
Others should be cautious.
This Solar eclipse will increase attention to material things. Be careful of overeating and overspending. People around you might be a little more stubborn now so maybe this is the time to just give in.
Natural calamities and political tensions are possible in australia and pacific islands during may 2013.
