This makes Karwa Chauth more holy and pious. Also Read – Govinda’s Gift to His Wife Sunita Beats All The Karwa Chauth Gifts Out There: A Swanky BMW – no Kidding!

Astrologer and prophesier Pandit Jagannath Guruji also shares his valuable input. He said that women can stand in front of their puja room in the East-West direction and break their fast. It is in the East-West direction where the moon rises. The moon rises in the East and sets in the West.

When asked about the side effects or any bad omen as it is raining and women are not able to sight the moon, Pandit Jagannath Guruji says that rains bring only good news and positivity. According to him, rain is a symbol of happiness and it will not harm anyone.

Here’s how you can break your fast if the moon is not sighted:

  • On the eve of Karwa Chauth, if you are not able to see the moon, women can break their fast after the sunrise, the next day.
  • If the moon is not visible, women can worship the moon placed on the head of Lord Shiva, apologise and break their fast.
  • If the moon is not visible on the eve of Karwa Chauth, women can invoke the moon and worship, as per the law. After this, women can break their fast and pray to Maa Lakshmi.
  • If the moon is not visible, you can worship in the direction where the moon will rise, meditate on Maa Lakshmi and break their fast.
  • For women who are sick, pregnant or elderly, can break their fast without the moon sighting.
