DURING THE MONTH OF JULY, 2018....
By rasi (moon sign), I am not referring to your sun sign, i.e. sun's position in your natal chart. Sun remains in the same sign for nearly 30 days. For example people born between 15.01.2014 to 12.02.2014 belong to the sun sign Capricorn. (makara rasi). This method is followed in Kerala, in some parts of Tamil Nadu and Malabar as well as in portions of North East India. According to Western astrology which does not consider precession of equinox (ayanamsha) people born between 22.12.2013 to 20.01.2014 belong to sun sign Capricorn. In Hindu astrology the transit effects are considered from the sign occupied by moon (nirayana position) at the time of birth, called rasi.
On this page, the predictions are interpreted based on the cannons of Hindu astrology. I would not say, Vedic astrology as in times of the vedas, ancient being Rigveda, astrology was used as calendar to perform specific religious duties and was not used for elections or predictive purposes. However, we can find references to muhurta and predictive nature of astrology in grahya sutras and puranas. English notations are used as the site has numerous readers in Latin America and Western Europe.
During the month of July, 2018, there is a partial solar eclipse on 13.07.2018 in Gemini (punarvasu star). Total lunar eclipse on 27/28.07.2018 in Capricorn (uttarashadha and sravana stars) during 22:44 of 27th to 04:58 of 28th and is visible in India. Sun is in Gemini at the start of the month and enters Cancer on 17th. Mars is retrograde in Capricorn. Mercury transits in Cancer and is retrograde from 27th of the month. Jupiter transits in Libra and assumes direct motion from 11th. Venus transits in Cancer at the beginning of the month and enters Leo on 5th July. Retrograde Saturn, Rahu and Ketu continue their journeys in Sagittarius, Cancer and Capricorn respectively.
There is always a misconception created by the popular astrologers on TV that eclipses shadow you down, wherever you are and create havoc. Some astrologers even predict good luck due to eclipses -"ಲಾಭಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ರಹಣ ಆಗಿದೆ. ನಿಮಗೆ ತುಂಬಾ ಧನಲಾಭ" [The eclipse is in 11th, you will have lot of money"- yells a Kannada channel. In the astrological classics, no where such results are mentioned. There are another set of scientists who force food down my throat to prove one can dine and wine during eclipse. There is of course, a class of people who abstain food during eclipse. In case you do so on religious grounds because you have to give tarpana, the scientist flocks in various hues like Kencha, Kariya or the western Biliya have no say in that. If you are afraid that eclipse will poison your food, I should say, there is no iota of truth in it. Similarly, the effects of eclipse are felt only for a few days and then they disappear. Some accidents - like your dress catching fire, could be quite distressing. Eclipses can tarnish your image and cause humiliations. But they simply can not over rule your dasha / bhukti or transit, they will not snatch away your plate of meals. So, four times this year, the two sets of people say the same things again and again and create much noise. Much ado about nothing! Whenever the eclipse occurs on the birth star, in the 6th or 8th from your rasi, remedial measures are called for - whether the eclipses is visible or not. They should recite mantras for ravi or chandra depending on whether it is solar or lunar eclipse. महारुद्र महाकाळ कालभैरव राहु तथा केतुग्रस्त ग्रहण विपत्विमोचन सकलश्रेष्ठ होम (or whatever homa with an impressive and fanciful name!) is not needed at all. I sincerely hope you are not carried away by TV forecasts on eclipse days.
