The Hindu New Year begins from 7th April but traditionally as the New Year from 1 January starts, we begin to discuss it. Many times warning about this year and 2020 (of war), has been given before or hinted at in many pieces of mine. Now is the time to spell it out. In 2016 from March to September Mars Saturn conjunction in Vrischika like any year when these two planets aspected each other or were conjunct, is the indication of destruction from earthquakes mostly in most of the countries and for us, in India around New Moon and Full Moon
and eclipses. Notable feature of this year’s New Year chart is the kendra position of Saturn and Mars with Rahu which is disastrous in many ways as for the world.
In India the sensitive seismic zones falling in north India and west should concern us most though Assam and Kutch cannot be forgotten or overlooked in the visible scheme of destruction. Depending on the horoscopes of different countries and their monthly and fortnightly charts when it indicates terrorist attacks or in the case of India communal or even earth shaking court decisions can be seen.
A glance at the horoscope of the new year for India draws our attention to the Mars Saturn combination in the third house, the tenth lord going into the eighth house and the eighth lord Mars aspecting the tenth house. The message is ominous. Aspect of Jupiter on Mercury is a saving grace. Mars is the third and eighth lord and Saturn fifth and sixth lord. It is not merely Mars and Saturn but it is also the combination of the sixth and the eighth lord that is the sinister message this combination conveys in unmistakable tones.
The first fear Predicting earthquakes astrologically serves no useful purpose as we have not succeeded in pinpointing location in terms of the latitude and longitude of places to be affected. Seismologists have hundreds of failure all over the world while astrologers have some successes which help none except helping the novitiates in this super science of boasting of the success of their prediction. Roughly March, May June July August and September are the months to be watched around New Moon and Full Moon days and days of eclipses as infallible astrological maxim which has come down to us from the days of the great Garga Maharshi. Eclipses this year are :
March 9: Total solar eclipse
March 23: Penumbral lunar eclipse
September 1: Annular solar eclipse
September 16: Penumbral lunar eclipse
Then note full Moon and new Moon days and watch around these days the earthquakes of the year.
Test it on hundreds of horoscopes of earthquakes to convince yourself why astrology is a super science. The directions can be seen in each case through known astrological methods. The destruction they will cause and our lack of preparedness will get highlighted again and again. Politicians will unite on such occasions, forgetting their differences, sympathizing with the sufferers but never reminding who, when in power, allowed multistories buildings to be built without ensuring earthquake proofing along with so many collapsible structures to create their vote banks. God has not yet created an Indian politician with moral responsibility after the late Lal Bahadur Shastri.
2. COURT CASES: fear or relief ?
The vulgar level to which Indian politics has descended since the rise of the Aam Aadmi Party with Kejri levelling charges against anyone and everyone, himself overlooking known legal and constitutional provisions, will not stop unless these politicians are tried in courts of law and taught a lesson. The good development this year has been cases against the Congress party’s president and vice president of the Nehru dynasty’s last Mughals as Subramanian Swamy who filed these cases almost suggested in his irrepressible optimism. Yet, the Congress party is slowly recovering from all these setbacks now.
Six member of the AAP including Kejri the chief minister of Delhi dragged to a court of law by Arun Jaitley of the BJP and Kirti Azad of the BJP who has to face a case from the father of a Delhi Ranji trophy cricketer will be in news for many months and lot of dirty political linen will be washed publicly.
3.CASTEIST, COMMUNAL, TERRORIST ATTACKS
This combination in the third house aspecting the ninth house is to be dreaded as much for communal, casteist skirmishes and terrorists as for earthquakes. Saturn as the sixth lord and Mars as the eighth lord aspecting the ninth house of judiciary. This combination gets repeated in many Varga charts also. Some of these leaders who will be jailed of course, will not miss the chance to pose as martyrs. In the Navamsha the ninth lord Mercury is in the sixth house Mars. In the dashamsha, ninth lord Saturn is with Jupiter the eighth lord aspected by Mars.
Saturn Mars combination in the third house is the surest indication of troubles on India’s borders.
The Patidar movement in Gujarat by the prosperous Patel community, an opportunistic political agitation will not die down so easily.
The stones unloaded at Ayodhya for the Ram Janmabhoomi is not a threat to build the temple at once till the judgement of the Supreme Court but politicians will not miss this opportunity to inflame communal passions. It would be sagacious for the Modi government to request the Supreme Court to give to this case an urgent hearing and settle it as the Allahabad High Court has considered enough evidence to establish that a Hindu temple had existed there. But it will keep flaring up more and more, particularly in the months of April, September and December.
Linked to the Ayodhya temple the clear fear of terrorist attack, particularly when the Muslim youth is getting enticed by ISIS. Chotta Rajan in jail may not be safe. Throughout the year this fear will haunt the nation. Saturn as the fifth lord with Mars aspecting the ninth house is showing this fear clearly though it also means the great attraction of students for technical education throughout this year.
Third house which represents media does not appear to be pleasant with Mars and Saturn in it. It can mean some trouble for some television units known for pernicious extra territorial influences shaping their policies. But this combination can also mean some creative experiments also.
It is obvious that communications, railways and airways are in clear danger this year. These can be normal accidents to sabotage of many types.
Sports the brighter side
The brighter side of this combination is the possibility of Indian sportsmen faring well during this year. Already after the start of the mahadasha of Moon Indian players have done well in tennis, cricket and badminton and in wrestling Vijender Singh has distinguished himself in professional boxing by scoring a Technical Knockout over Hyuseinov for his third successive win in the pro circuit. It is also apparent that the scandals ridden BCCI will undergo many reforms after some more shocking revelations and report of the former Chief Justice of India R.M.Lodha.
The Second fear
The tenth lord Mercury in the eighth house and Mars, the eighth lord aspecting the tenth house does not show any dilution in the troubles with the government of Narendra Modi which will be forced to do some unhappy shuffling and reshuffling the central cabinet and also hear the tragic news of some tragedy to some big leader. BJP’s own horoscope shows some possibility of reshuffling at the top which may endanger the position of Amit Shah. This will be a big news item of the year showing some foreign link with financial repercussions of a big political figure leading to his political disgrace. The security of VVIPs needs greater care is the clearest indication of this.
Black Money in foreign banks: The exchange of Jupiter the fourth and seventh lord with Sun in the seventh house with Moon the eleventh lord and exalted Venus the second and the ninth lord is good for the image of India internationally as well as for the recovery of Indian money in foreign banks. The promise made by Narendra Modi during his election speeches will begin to show its positive results from this year substantially. The aspect of Saturn on Jupiter in the twelfth house shows a big court case against some big businessman in this regard.
Foreign investments: Foreign investment in India leading to greater employment opportunities and Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” dream will begin to become an attractive reality from this year onwards with defence production taking priority. In turn, India will also open and participate in investments in foreign countries and help with its technical know how. Such investments from even Muslim countries will be a reality. India’s defence sector will get strengthened spectacularly this year.
While on the domestic front there are problems tormenting the nation and the Modi government, its image internationally and India becoming attractive for foreign reality will begin to show tangible results.
Inspite of considerable achievements, this year will be remembered for the lingering tragedies. The media known for cynical and sensational news will not miss to pick these up and present them in a partisan manner as it always does and also get punished. All political parties will under painful churning.
Among Indian political parties, it affects different political parties in different ways. The Congress party may see a big change and Rahul Gandhi may become its president after full eighteen years of Sonia Gandhi’s notable dominance may happen in January soon after the transit of Rahu. BJP will find the presence of Rahu in Simha affecting it in many ways, may shuffle its central cabinet and
even the party president may have to step down. Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused of dictatorial tendencies and centralization of powers in his hand will find this year very uneasy in many ways.
Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP will have to go through an ordeal both and mental.
Pakistan, (Simha lagna)
Pakistan’s prime minister Nawaz Sharif evolving into a liberal is running the risk of being trapped and forced by the army which controls and shapes the foreign policy of Pakistan, to quit or change his policy radically and indulge in anti India rhetoric. A military coup or the replacement of Nawaz Sharif is looming in the horoscope of the new year of Pakistan. Nawaz Sharif had taken the
risk of taking a reasonable and peaceful decision towards India in 1998 and General Pervez Musharraf planned the Kargil war leading to the fall and exile of Sharif. Now this year between two Sharifs, one of the amy and the other the prime minister, clearly the tilt is towards the army. The jolt to the government of Sharif will hit headlines this year. The greater threat to Pakistan is from terrorists and ISIS. The nation which bred cobras will get bitten itself many times this year. Attack on buildings leading to destruction seems unavoidable.
Damage to Pakistan through earthquakes can be very immensely tragic this year apart from terrorist attacks. Pakistan will remember this year for the damage caused by earthquakes.
The greater danger to Pakistan is to its students in some tragic incidents this year. The brighter side is that some students of Pakistan will win international recognition through some notable work. The country will attract sizeable foreign investments from friendly countries.
Whatever actions nations may take, ISIS will continue to attract radicalised youths from all over the world much to the consternation of even India. But it will see huge destruction of the land it has snatched from Syria and Iraq. The fierce attacks made on it will force it to shift its headquarters to some other country while its top men including Abu Bakr do not seem to be safe and may be killed. More remarkable will be the great successes of Russia and Syria and also USA in destroying its sources of rich income. But the income it gets from countries helping it secretly will increase still. The rumours of ISIS trading in human organs may be true and is likely to increase. At any rate the Caliphate dreaming of the last battle in Rome believing in a prophecy of Mohammad in a Hadith will see it fail.
The citadel of Wahhabism, Saudi Arabia , known exporter of oil and fanatical brand of Islam, will suffer like ISIS. The known dispute in the royal family of King Salman will lead to very unpleasant consequences and the succession battle will take worst turn. It will come out in open and will even be reported. This country’s economic decline has begun now. Its support to terrorism all over the world will also decrease as it now faces threat from ISIS itself also. Its budget will be of deficit as already known and the decline that has begun now will be a good relief to the world tormented by Wahhabism. This country will no longer be an attractive destination for high salaries for the foreign experts.
Stronger now than when ISIS was rising, this country cannot remain complacent. It will attack ISIS strongholds better and will also be attacked even by a battered ISIS. Saturn and Mars are in its fourth house of the new year horoscope. It is likely to recapture some of the land and oil fields it lost to ISIS.
Inspite of all its precautions, Russia will not able to avoid terrorist attack on its own soil. There will be a sensational change at the top which will become international news. The Russian economy will not recover from the shocks it received in recent years.
The striking feature is that the top men of USA and the presidential candidates will get involved in unpleasant debates, some of them will be disgraced and even attacked. Slide in oil prices will affect its economy and prospects of employment. Possibilities of USA known for bagging maximum Nobel Prizes, apart from science even in literature, appear bright.
There will be many more cases like 3 Dec 2015 San Bernardino, California attacks. If USA fails to control license of guns, this year will be remembered for many tragedies. Rahu in its birth lagna Saturn and Mars in the fourth house is not an indication of peaceful year for USA.
Its economic downward slide will not stop this year. Destruction to land through earthquake will be many this year. Natural disasters will be many and be reported almost round the year. Some secret power struggle and some strong action against top men is possible. Chinese threat of territorial fights will be many and will create tense situations in its neighborhood throughout the year. China will be plotting somewhere for a future conflagration or even armed conflicts soon.
