According to astrologers, the lunar eclipse on November 30 will be the last of 2020. The last lunar eclipse of this year will affect the Taurus sign and Rohini nakshatra, said astrologers adding that it could also have an effect on almost all the zodiac signs.

Every eclipse has a Sutak period during which it is suggested to chant the mantras and do meditation. In the upcoming lunar eclipse, the Sutak period will not be valid because it is a 'Upachhaya' eclipse.
