Study of the charts of nations is called Mundane astrology. Very little research has been done in this field. As such, hardly we come across an astrologer who has correctly predicted two or more earthquakes, disasters, national calamities. For the preparation of the national charts and of political parties is most tricky as the birth times would not be available. Also, there will be confusion on the date of formation. In case of India, we have three separate dates i.e. independence day, republic day (on which the states formed the Indian Republic) and the date on which the colony was transferred to British Empire by the East India Company. A man's longevity is reasonably taken as 120 years where as the country or a political group may live beyond that. Some repeat the vimshottari dashas after a lapse of 120 years. I have not found much trust worthy results by applying any dasha-bhukti be it Vimshottari, Asttottari etc.,
On 13.10.1999, the acting head of Pakistan, Nawaz Sheriff was ousted by Gen. Parwez Mushrraf. Lunation occurred in the 8th house. Whenever lunation is in the 8th, some horrible incidents like assassinations, massacres, violent overthrows, macabre accidents occur. Kuja is in the 10th in own house but not in own sign. There were no external disturbances like war on the country and government was stable. Budha is in the 8th own house but not in own sign. Financial position was comfortable, though the country heavily depended on borrowings. There was not much blood shed. Budha in the 8th has curtailed press freedom. Malefics in the 11th cause hurdles in democratic rule. Coups, secrets are represented by rahu in the 6th and also malefics in the 12th. Pluto in the 10th implies sudden turn of events.
Now, let take up year 2008 as an example. Ugadi is the new beginning of year in the Hindu Chandramana Calendar. Unlike the Gregorian calendar, this event is related to cumulative movement of Sun and Moon. This month is called Chitra masa because the full moon happens in the star Chitra. The pratipat of this phase is known as Ugadi. Tamil Nadu and some portion of Konkan celebrate new year depending on the movement of Sun. Solar New Year, popularly known as Mesha Sankramana happens after about fifteen days when Sun enters the sign Aries. Gregorian calendar is mere division of time and is not related to the entry of Sun to different zodiac signs. Ugadi called for a balanced mind to take the good and bad events with equal tranquility. On this day a mixture of neem leaves, lemon juice, jaggery etc, is prepared is taken as prasad with this mantra: शतायुर्वज्रदेहाय सर्वसंपत्कराय च। सर्वारिष्ट विनाशाय निंबकं दलभक्षणम्॥ "Let this prasad bring longevity, a strong body, wealth and let there be no obstacles during this year" Like the Chinese years, the Chandraman Calendar is divided into 60 parts. This year is named as Sarvadhari. Like the Chinese years events to come during this year are also described in ancient texts. Sarvadhari Samvat brings," Good rains, happiness and the kings would be busy serving the citizens". The planetary king of the year is decided on the lord of the day. This time Ugadi falling on Sunday, makes Sun as the King of the year. The effect of a dry and cruel planet being the king is that, "the food grains (except the black and red coloured ones) become scarce. Less yield of flowers and fruits are seen. Scanty rainfall and troubles to cattle, human beings. Liars, thieves trouble the society. Fire accidents also occur. The year is not good for kings and leaders".
In astrology, planets and signs play major role. The derivatives like astakavarga, bharana harana, sahams etc., should be considered with deliberation. Some work and some do not. Here the year Sarvadhari is described based on numerical cyclical pattern. It is no good than the Chinese classification of the years! Sunday is the day when sun's hora rises first. Hora is mere division of the nocturnal and diurnal time of the locality and is not related to planets! Since these years rotate once in 60 years, Sarvadhari year began on these dates: 18.03.1768 21.14hrs; 16.03.1828 03.01hrs; 11.04.1888 14.29hrs; 09.04.1948 18.46hrs. No comparison of events in earlier Sarvadhari years is possible for want of data. So, the above description should be taken with a pinch of salt!
Shani transits throughout this year in the sign Leo. The transit results of Saturn in Leo is descried here:
"Food grains yield well. More rains. Business will flourish in Malava desha (Madhya Pradesh). Sorrow due to misunderstandings. Infighting among villages. Good trading transactions in jageery (sugar), wheat, Bengal gram, rice, maize, ghee, pepper and ginger. The eastern provinces are happy while infectious diseases, worries bother rest of the country. Prices for copper, bronze, ghee and oil seeds go up. Abundant production of grass and cattle feed in Konkana desha (Costal region of Karnantaka, Goa and Maharastra). Rebellions in the centre of Malava desha and happiness in other parts of the country. In the eastern provinces good trade of clothes. All the prices escalate". Jupiter transits in Sagittarius till 09.12.2008. This results in "rise of wheat price during rainy season. Till, Groundnuts and jaggery (sugar) become cheaper". From 10.12.2008 Jupiter transits in the sign Capricorn in debilitation. This implies "conflicts among the kings (rulers) and famine." Such predictions based on planets and signs are more specific and the accuracy is still refined. It is worthwhile to see when Saturn transited in Leo and Jupiter in Sagittarius and Capricorn and the resultant events.
Now let us make a chart at the start of the year. This chart is referred to as Varsha kundali while the the one at the start of mesha sankramana is called Jagalagna kundali. The only difference is that I have used extra saturnine planets in this chart. My rationalist friends may ask me the authority for inclusion of these planets in my work. Suppose, I had not included, these rationalists would have argued, my knowledge is out dated and astrologers do not grow with changes! A rationalist of 3 months crash course always bets the winning horse and an astrologer of 40 years of experience always rides a donkey! What does this chart say? The chart has Neptune in the 10th, Uranus in the 11th. The remaining planets occupy the same positions in the bhava chakra as in the rasi chakra. This chart shows financial prosperity and also stable economy. There would also be some scam in the higher circles involving a ruling party politician. Longevity of the population is excellent. Even then mass killing of children or explosion at a school, place of worship or an entertainment place is seen. A leader of national importance will pass away due to accident or violent attack in the month of September. There would be widening difference of opinion between the governing parties. Media and travel agencies make good profits. The government is purely democratic and takes media into confidence. The employees, particularly in Railways, Post, Telephone and Finance Ministry would be happy and co-operate with the government. Intellectuals, scholars, scientists and people in Armed Forces are not at all happy with the government incentives. During the period 21.05.2008 to 13.06.2008 government will study the implications of 6th Central Pay Commission. Central Government employees reap benefit between 20.09.2008 to 13.10.2008. Housing loans become costly. Also, government will start building houses for the poor and for certain class of people. The development in educational field is not seen during this year. People tend to be disappointed and lazy. Possibility of earthquake can not be ruled out. The volatile combination of Mars and Saturn and Saturn and Sun in Leo during July and August, 2008 which may trigger earth quakes. However, there is no great loss of lives.
Film personalities, actors and writers have got good encouragement and financial support. The country tilts more on snack food and artificial beverages and as such the rate of diabetic patients goes up. People tend to enjoy life with borrowed money and credit cards. Number of cars and such luxury items goes up in every household! Divorce rate is less despite the fact the women are made to work hard sacrificing their domestic time. Many new women entrepreneurs come up on the national scene. People are not keen on religious practices. It is very difficult for the political parties to imbibe religious feelings for their need! The population wants bread, better, cheese, a car etc., Suddenly, it would come to light that a foreign power tried or is trying to dictate terms to the Union Government. This creates a great, heated debate in the Parliament. Though the government looks shaky it would complete the term. Indian realizes the need for power and goes head on for nuclear power sources. The left partners will have no option but to keep quite. Democracy is guarded well though at times due to two malefics in the 11th, rahu and Uranus it looks as though all the parliamentarians are puppets of a foreign power. At the time of need, government gets the support from an unexpected corner. Trade is excellent. No new states would be created in 2008 and also there are no snap polls to parliament. BJP can not expect to improve its performance in Karnataka. Yet, the old base is strengthened. Internal conflicts subdue for the time being. There will be once again an amalgamation of many parties that forms the government in Karnataka.
In the year Sarvadhari there was a solar eclipse on 01.08.2008 16.30 to 18.06 IST. There is also a lunar eclipse on 17.08.2008 01.06 to 04.15 IST. The eclipse on 01.08.2008 causes ripples in the government due to some problems related to religion or policy matter of the government and also misunderstanding among the rulers. The eclipse on 17.08.2008 may cause road accidents involving children. Passing away of a distinguished literary person is also seen. Other charts like Mesha sankramana, Aridhra Pravesha kala chart and also solar ingress into different signs should also be used for clear understanding. Paucity of time and place restricts this article.
When superimposed with Indian Independence chart, it is striking that the ascendant in both chitra pratipat chart and the independence chart are the same! We also find that Mars transits over his natal position, Saturn and ketu afflict the 4th house, Jupiter and Pluto transit in the 8th, Neptune afflicts the 9th, Uranus and rahu afflict the 10th house. However, the 11th is well disposed having large number of benefics. Uncertainty yet stable financial conditions is seen. There is not much progress in the field of education, housing and the population desperately searches for happiness. Interest in ancient history, culture and occult sciences and love for the country grows more. Discovery of new species of living organisms or making new artificial organs expand the horizons of research. There will also be more involvement of minority groups, women and foreigners in the affairs of the country.
At times, my learned readers have ask for political forecast. There are limitations in mundane predictions as we do not have reliable birth or foundation charts of political parties. So, I relay on lunation charts instead. In my younger days there was some sanctity in politics bug now it is equal to any other sin! I have lost my interest in politics long long ago. I do not care who comes to power, I have seen several elections in my life, several promises, several scams. There were several dissidents who went on ransacking or climbing trees or pouring kerosene on themselves. These people wanted party tickets so that they can serve the people better! Is it not possible to serve the nation by being a servant. To open an orphanage, do I require to become a member of parliament? And look at those candidates who have been shielded by the parties, their assets run into crores. I fail to understand how a rich man can understand problems of my poor brothers who unable to get a meal a day, who walk bare foot in the hot sun? The political scene is disgusting. Why do the people want to know about political scene? It is merely some curiosity and they too are not serious who comes to power and they know it is all the same! After sometime the astrologer who predicted and predictions are all forgotten. Some people take the political predictions seriously. He said, "The vadhyar had predicted that Jayalalitha comes to power" and so I thought that vadhyar was an expert in astrology. My friend vadhyar knew several languages and will write to all the vernacular newspapers and magazines both big and small. In some he would predict Jayalalitha will not come to power and in others that she will come to power. The great astrologer was bound to be correct and he will display the relevant paper cuttings on his table! Vadhyar knows some arka vidya or makara vidya or bakara vidya which his guru initiated when he had gone on a North Indian tour but he does not know how a basic chart is made but has promoted certain software which he recommends as most accurate. He also evaluates the answer papers for a reputed astrological examination. He is street smart and gets smarter and smarter as the days goby, conducting many conferences and seminars.
I should say, there are lot of research to be done in this field. In ancient times the mundane was treated as the chart of the ruler. Shanti for a certain planet was done if it is afflicted in the king's chart and it was believed to protect the kingdom. The present form of government was not known. As such, many people fail to get the exact numbers got by the ruling party in the elections. So called foundation charts of cities and countries are also misleading, they are not dependable at all times. Despite all these mundane astrology does not occupy prominent place as that of individual astrology.
