Vedic Astrology Lesson 19

The Vedic Lunar Year Chitrabhanu commenced on 12/04/2002 at 24 h 48 m with the King of the Solar Logos, the Sun, occupying Pisces. The planet of business & trade, Mercury occupies a Martian sign conjoined with Venus indicating that global recession will continue. Jupiter, the planet of Expansion, in the 3rd therefrom has a favourable influence on the expansion of IT & communication globally.

Mars in with mutual exchange with Venus in Aries promotes Art & artists & the entertainment industry is considerably enhanced. The Martian tenancy of Taurus along with North Node & Saturn indicates that military conflicts may erupt at many a place. Democracies will be under the onslaught of violence and subversions.

Saturn, the representative of Nature, afflicted by Rahu & Mars, means that the period is subject to weather, seismic and volacanic hazards. Jupiter's tenancy of a nodal constellation in Gemini and the presence of malefics in the 12th all indicate heavy economic losses and closures. Stock market recession indicated as the 5th lord occupies the 6th with malefics.

The rising Sign at Delhi is Sagittarius 20 degrees 12 minutes. The Asc receives the strong 8th aspect of Mars indicating the temper of violence & disruption the country is subject to. However, the powerful 7th aspect of Jupiter on the Asc raises hopes of concerted efforts to contain the problem. Improvement in Communication & IT due to the aspect of Jupiter and & Saturn on the 3rd. Adverse indications regarding public health as the 6th house is heavily afflicted by malefics.

Leo rising in Washington means that the 10th is vitiated by three malefics - viz the North Node, Saturn and Mars. This indicates a feeling of defeat. The Sole Superpower's pride has been wounded and a doubtful feeling of one' s own ability due to afflictions in the New Year Chart indicated. Saturn's tenancy of the constellation of Rohini ( called Rohini Sakata Bheda ) is a malefic Yoga which tends to bring adverse influences on world affairs, especially the US, as it occurs in the 6th, the house of enemies & war. Even though Jupiter is the greatest benefic in the astrological heirarchy, he gives war, strife & struggle under certain circumstances when he is passing thorough one of his cycles. The US is now passing through such a cycle now, which is brimming with pessimistic prophecies.

Regarding U K, with Libra rising and Saturn and the other malefics, Saturn and the North Node in the 8th could indicate suffering, recession & unemployment.

The Sanskrit treatise, the Kumaraswameeyam, states that if there is a North Node-Saturn-Mars conjunction, then there will be heavy loss of life all over the world.

In order to increase the positive vibrations in the collective Subconscient, we can recite the Maha Mrityunjaya Mantra which is used astrologically to combat Saturnine malevolence. This mantra can be chanted as many times as possible.

Om Trayambakam Yajamahe Sugandhim Pushti Vardhanam Oorvarukamiva Bandhanan Mrityor Muksheeyumamritat

O Lord, make the whole word noble ( Krinvantho Visvam Aryam ) and may the whole world be happy ( Sarve Janah Sukhino Bhavanthu ) !

Jupiterian Transit of Gemini

A Kakshya is 3 degrees and 45 minutes and the the eight Kakshya rulers are Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Sun, Venus, Mercury, Moon & the Ascendant. Every planet moves through the eight Kakshyas during transit.

During the present Jupiterian stay in the Ascendant till 12062002,( this is the last Kakshya of Gemini ), the world will see a struggle for supremacy between Cosmos & Chaos.
