With the beginning of 2019, the movements of planets and stars have also begun to change. This year’s first Solar Eclipse was on 6th January.



Let’s start with explaining what an eclipse actually is, according to Astrology:

An eclipse is something which is associated the negative notions of spot or blot. Even a small spot can make a thing look bad in appearance. The same happens during an eclipse. In astrology, this spot or eclipse is bad, as it is believed to be inauspicious.

Now addressing your question, there are total 5 eclipses that we will witness this year: 3 Solar Eclipses and 2 Lunar Eclipses.
