Performing Rudrabhishekam to Lord Shiva before and after the Eclipse will bebeneficial. Those belonging to Rohini and Mrigasira stars should avoid looking/gettingexposed to the Eclipse.

What is to be done during Eclipse time?
Any Eclipse time is said to be very sacred and celestial and entire period of Eclipse isknown as Parva Kala (most sacred time). Any sacred rituals or rites performed duringa parva kala will derive more merits than those performed during ordinary times.
Hence, please don’t waste the Eclipse time wit
h materialistic pursuits and activities.Eclipse is the most opportune time to perform Snana {(sacred bath) before and afterthe Eclipse}, Prayer, Punascharana of Upadesa Manthra (like Gayathri manthra),Pithru Tharpana, and Charity. Chanting of Vedic manthras/sacred Sthothras will wardoff the negative energy that gets activated during eclipse and protects from allnegativity.Those who are eligible (Tharpanaadhikari) should give Sarva Pithru Tarpana to fore-fathers with black Thil (Sesame) seeds with proper sankalpa during eclipse time. Incase eclipse day is coinciding with Pithru/Mathru thithi (Pournami) it should beperformed after the eclipse. During Vedha period nithya karma like Snana,Sandhyavandana can be performed. Snana (taking bath) after the Eclipse is a mustand thereafter food can be taken after offering prayer.
