Chandra Grahan like the Surya Grahan is considered very inauspicious. As per the Hindu religion the Chandra Grahan lays a very strong impact on our lives.
All the necessary steps should be taken to minimize the evil effects of Chandra Grahan. Chandra Grahan normally occurs late at night or early in the morning. During this time most of the people are asleep so it is not harmful for them. It should be avoided to go out during this period and if one has to go out then do not look at the Chandra Grahan directly. These celestial changes have a great impact on the different aspects of our lives like career, love life, family life and many more. However, if small precautions are taken, there is nothing to worry about. Take bath after the Chandra Grahan is over as it helps to purify the body and depletes the evil effects of Chandra Grahan. Freshly cooked food should be taken only after the Grahan is over.

The Legend Associated With Surya Grahan and Chandra Grahan
The Hindu Mythology depicts a very interesting story regarding the Surya Grahan and the Chandra Grahan. Once the Asuras (demons) and the Devas were engaged in Samudra Manthan (churning of ocean). The churning of ocean produced Amrit (Elixir), for which the Asuras and Suras started fighting. To resolve the issue Lord Vishnu disguised as the beautiful damsel Mohini. All the Asuras fell for the enchanting beauty of Mohini and gave her the pot of Amrit. Making a fool out of them she started distributing the Amrit to all the Devas. One demon Rahu understood the conspiracy and sat with the Devas to get his share of the Amrit. He sat between the Surya Dev and the Chandra Dev who recognized him. Lord Vishnu at once beheaded Rahu. Since then Rahu comes periodically to avenge them and comes between the Surya and the Chandra which causes the Surya and the Chandra Grahan.
It should be noted that these are not just celestial happenings. These events have profound impact on the different aspects of our lives.
