The fourth and the last lunar eclipse of the year 2020 will occur on 30th November. It is a penumbral lunar eclipse in which the earth partially blocks the light of the sun that reaches directly to the moon, and the moon will turn darker for a few hours. The outer shadow caused by the earth is called penumbra; that is why it is called the Penumbral Lunar eclipse.
A Glimpse into Lunar Eclipse
Lunar eclipses fall on a full moon day, that is the time of ending, closure, manifestation, and transition. Lunar eclipse rituals are usually organised to usher in enormous breakthroughs, pushing past limits, letting go of painful situations for good, healing, or releasing. For the betterment of life, this is necessary.
This eclipse will be visible in North America, South America, Australia, and some parts of Asia. The total duration of the Chandra Grahan will be 4 hours and 21 minutes. In India, this Penumbral Lunar Eclipse will begin around 1:02 PM, and its peak will be at 3:12 PM. This celestial event will end at 5:22 PM.
Eclipse is a very common celestial phenomenon, and this time, it is happening in the Taurus sign at 14ᵒ 5' at Rohini Nakshatra, in which the moon is exalted. It is the second house of Kaal Purusha Kundli, which governs food, family, and finance. People will have intemperance for finance and food.
Moon means Manah, and Sun is Atma, and Manah and Atma are with the karmic planet Rahu and Ketu, which can create lots of mental turmoil and negativity.

This Lunar eclipse coincides with the auspicious day of Kartik Purnima, so it has great significance to take a bath in holy rivers. The killing of the demons and destruction of their cities with a single arrow by Lord Shiva caused joy among the gods and goddesses, who then declared the day as a 'festival of illuminations'.
