DURING THE YEAR 2019......
Calendars is signature of time and the shows the arrow of time in all the three dimensions - past, present and future. A nomadic tribe in Afghanistan does not have a calendar. Only two incidents mark the differences in their lives - the winter, when they climb down the mountains and the summer when they go up hill along with their animals. They need not have to plan anything at all and hence there no need of a calendar. They throw away their dead in the icy rivers. They do not have history, culture (samskara), purana or anything to identify with. Calendars give inheritance and also identity crisis. In my younger days, Yagnavalkya and Maitrei samvada (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad) was enchantingly delightful. I perceived, I belong to the culture of this great rishi. Then, one day I discovered Yagnavalkya, the eater of soft flesh of cows! The source can not be disputed - I discovered this through the works of Sanskrit maha mahopadyaya, supreme court lawyer Shri Kane, in his books History of Dharmasutras!
My grandfather wore uattariya and dhoti; he never forgave my father for giving up Brahmanism by wearing shirts, pump shoes and Mysore peta (cap). I identify with my linage but do not wear uttariya, pump shoes or peta. My grandfather proclaimed, there were neither a drunkard, a meat eater, a thief or a cheat in my linage. Of course, there were some references to my ancestors' penchant in eating [ब्राह्मणो भोजन प्रियः - Brahmin likes eating. There are other versions: ब्राह्मणो बहुजन प्रियः and ब्राह्मणो बहु जनप्रियः]. When you say, I belong to the linage of these purohits - the incarnates of honesty, dignity and devotion, I feel immensely happy. But when you say, I belong to the linage of Yagnavalkya, the meat eater, I am at unease. Yet, Yagnavalkya and maitrei belong to me! We have given up meat eating since my great great and the greatest grandfather's time. By the way, the liberals quote from selected works only. There are several dharma sutras that lay down meat eating as improper. The liberals obviously suffer selective amnesia. Gregorian calendar causes schizophrenia in me. Am I a British to follow the calendar of our former colonial rulers, who still have not given up their pounds and gallons for kilograms and liters? The national calendar is chandramana and the national gazette only uses this date. Hindus take birth and live the whole life in Gregorian calendar. The first death anniversary is on shukla paksha dwiteeya, kartika masa and not on 24th November! Paradox - Eye specialist can not see.
National pride is not reflected in celebration of New Years Day. There is nothing inappropriate in a "Happy New Year" but let us not forget to wish each other on Ugadi too. You can not close your windows, even if you are a fundamentalist or a Marxist. Culture too blows like wind across Atlantic to Asia. There are always cultural collisions, modifications and mutations. Like the British, let us be proud of our culture, let us not forget Tolä, Sèr, Ratti and Ugadi. I would not brag, I practice vedic astrology! I am engaged in study of Vedas since my childhood. Several times I have gone through Atherva and many mandalas of Rigveda. Nowhere, I could find references to predictive or election astrology. Use of astrology was restricted to fixing the dates festivals, though there are mentions to predictive astrology and muhurta in puranas. That means, predictive astrology is not vedic! To be a religious Hindu, you need not have to believe in astrology, it is not a part of vedanga. Vedanga jyotishya is a calendar with solar months like madhu, madhava etc.,! Let world famous astrologers in Delhi, Noida and Bangalore say, they practice the sacrosanct vedic astrology (Lord Vinayaka bless their ignorance). Generally, astrology is laced with fatalism. Birth of Jesus is linked to the prophecy, 'This was to fulfil the passage in Prophet Isaiah' (Mathew 4:14). Ashariravani revealed to Kamsa that the 7th child of his sister would kill him! But the great Greeks were not to accept such fatalistic view and maintained "astra inclinant, non necessitant " (star incline, do not determine). Be Greek heros and not fatalistic ravens. Like school children who have certain restrictions yet are free within the school compound, we are free and also governed by the environment, indicated by the planets. फलानि ग्रहचारेण सूचयन्ति मनीषिणः। को वक्ता तारतम्यस्य तमेकं वेधसं विना॥ - फलदीपिक "With the help of planetary movements, mortals can only give indications of what is to happen; who else other than BRAHMA can tell with certainty as to what will definitely happen" - Phladeepika. Only God almighty knows for certain and astrological analysis is mere human effort to understand infinitesimally huge uncertainty. Remedial measures help us to improvise on the given birth but will not altogether change the life.
On the last day of the year, mid night strikes and no star falls from the sky leading to Bethlehem. Men and women, without reservation loaded of alcohol are on the ground and nobody is awake when the new year chimes. Mundane charts in ancient India are done for lunation - Hindu month is not merely a numbered day but a day that lives with phases of moon. When poornima (full moon) does not occur in the month, the moth is extended and when poornima happens early, it is cut short. The corrections are done every month and not once in four years as in Gregorian colander.
There is always a misconception created by the popular astrologers on TV that eclipses shadow you down and create havoc. Some astrologers even predict good luck due to eclipses -"ಲಾಭಸ್ಥಾನದಲ್ಲಿ ಗ್ರಹಣ ಆಗಿದೆ. ನಿಮಗೆ ತುಂಬಾ ಧನ ಲಾಭ" [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 all colours 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. 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! The rituals are observed only if the eclipse occurs in that part of the world, whether physically visible or clouded.
It is obvious, you should not to look at the eclipse directly with naked eyes, you are off guard when the bight light will flash into your retina, causing damage. Suppose you know the exact end time and you watch is not deceptive, you just can have a direct look. Well, nothing happens - I have done that in my college days. The eclipses are used to measure the bent of space (gravitational pull), density of constituent gasses on the planets, surface temperature, speed and vacillation. Infringement of light occurs when a light source is obstructed - the resulting light is broken into various light rays of different frequencies, that was the hot topic in 70s. Not much research is done in this field.
Food for thought - "Convulsive thresholds were measured in 26 psychiatric patients who were receiving electroconvulsive treatment and in 8 rats subjected to electroconvulsive shocks, during the recent total solar eclipse day (February 16th, 1980) and on control days. Our results showed that there was a significant reduction in the convulsive thresholds of both humans and rats at the time of solar eclipse, probably occurring due to the observed geomagnetic field variation of 19 Gammas". [M.S.Keshavan, B.N.Gangadhar, R.U.Gautam, V.B.Ajit & R.L.Kapur; Neuroscience Letters Volume 22, Issue 2, 10 March 1981]. "Both the quantitative and qualitative variations in the airspora were observed during different phases of the eclipse. The number of fungal colonies were higher during the pre- and post-eclipse phase. There was a decrease at contact phase, total/partial or diamond ring eclipse phase. Thus, very minor changes were observed during the eclipse period. Bacterial colonies were higher at the post-eclipse phase. Most of the fungal species are organic matter decomposers, while some of them are known to cause allergies in humans and also cause plant diseases. Aspergillus species were dominant. Both A. fumigatus (causing allergy and asthma) and A. flavus (producing aflatoxin) were the dominant species and they showed a definite trend in their occurrence". [Microorganisms collected during a solar eclipse in India - Jayashree Deshpande & Laxman V. Gangawane; Aerobiologia December 1997].
There are fasting and rituals associated with eclipses. It is advised to be on empty stomach, you will stop eating and drinking (the beverages and juices, water exempted) 3 hours before start of eclipse. Some people start fasting for 9 hours or 12 hours before eclipse. Three hours is reasonable considering present day life style. As the food prepared earlier to eclipse is discarded, you should ensure that your fridge is empty. After eclipse you will have a full bath - head to toes and put light in pooja room. When the eclipse is in progress water also is not taken. Little children, patients and old persons are exempted due to inability. Liberated scientifically advanced souls claim immunity! After the eclipse the house and house hold articles as well as clothes that were on the body are washed. If the eclipse has occurred in your rasi or in 6th, 8th or 12th from your rasi or in your star, then you should recite mantras (any simple mantra will do) for ravi or chandra, depending on whether it is Solar or Lunar eclipse. You may also recite mantra for your favorite God (Istadaiva), Ravi or Chandra as the case may be or use any mantra, instead. Eclipses have effect on your mind and moods than physical body - suppose you eat, drink and dance, you may not find any noticeable effect, immediately. The effects of eclipses are very short lived, that will not override the influences of your natal chart. We can also use this time for mantra siddhi (perfection), take a mantra and recite during eclipse. If you want to test the effect of of eclipse of mind, just keep quite and observe your thoughts - you will have sound proof. In my younger days, I used to take advantage of eclipses to recite mantras.
Reputed pulmonologists at Buffalo Hospital told that the young boy needs to take medications on daily basis and additional ones when he has spasms. Parents were about to start the treatment but the wise old grandfather prevailed. The refrigerator was shut down, the boy ate and drank only fresh things. He would not eat outside. Now, the boy is great singer, he can sing continuously for an hour. Of course, refrigerators preserve food efficiently but we know not of harmful side effects, due to temperature variance. Research into this area may harm refrigerator manufacturers. Research on effects of eclipses on humans will saffronise the country and will render greatest harm to our secular credentials! Consider recitation of your favorite mantra during eclipse - it is a worthy try. ...............As Jesus said this, He called out, "He who has ears to hear, let him hear." [Luke 8:8].
Combustion (also known as astangata or moudhya) of a planet is caused due to nearness to ravi and is deemed to be bad at it would rob away the effects of the planet. Uttara Kalamrita says, " (Natural) Benefic planets if combust, lose their potency, while (natural) malefics become more mischievous. Retrogression merely causes status quo - it freezes the scenario while result of combustion varies, depending on the role of Sun in the chart. Auspicious events are not conduced when mainly guru and shukra suffer combustion. Budha suffers combustion more frequently as he is the inner planet in the solar system, very close to the earth. The results of this will be covered in monthly predictions. Combustion of chandra is nothing but Amavasya. At the start of the year kuja transits in meena rasi and traverses till his transit into tula rasi by the end of the year. For most part of the year, guru transits in vrischika rasi till he moves into his own sign dhanur rasi on 05.11.2019. Due to aticharya (unusually fast motion), he transits in dhanur rasi for a brief period from 30.03.2019 to 22.04.2019. Shani transits in dhanur rasi for the entire year. At the start of the year, Rahu and Ketu are in kataka and makara rasis respectively and enter into mithuna - dhanur on 08.03.2019. Budha and shukra are very fast moving planets. The effects these two planets cause will be featured in monthly forecasts.
In the chart made for the year year, we have kanya lagna rising with tula rasi. In this chart shukra is in his own sign while shani is combust. Aspect of 8th lord kuja on lagna is not good. The chart does not hold much strength, there is lot of clutter and noise. 10th lord budha in 3rd shows that the government has to depend on multiple factors to rule. Every day lot of confusion and noise is created. Financial position is good, 11th lord chandra in 2nd with shukra 2nd lord in own sign. There is more of moral and religious gusto in the government. The opposition will gain on the government, guru the 7th lord aspects his own sign and house. Kuja the 8th lord happens to be a good lord for the opposition. There are always problems from the neighbours and also intellectuals as shani is combust in 12th lord. Some elements will be able to turn the lower classes working class and others against the government. There will be problems to the government - if you give reservation to one community they hurt others. It is not possible to re-examine (leave alone removal) of reservation. Opposition party does not have any new idea to offer and hence not able to take the opportunity. Congress does whatever BJP does, they too have great Shivbhakts! Religion, construction of Ram temple etc., is just an eyewash by the BJP government for the present. It would not try any decree, time is short for any more and the situation is volatile. BJP wants the Congress to make the next move on the chessboard. Something went wrong - statistical data is twisted both ways and to repair, a financial invigoration takes place, 9th lord is placed in 2nd. As usual intellectuals neither give any Prakash or ray of hope but successfully create antagonism. Unrest in educational institutions will reach its high. People have good health and the lifespan increases. There will be natural calamities, fire accidents and train crashes. It is not good to have shani+ravi in the same house. Rahu in the 11th implies some scams again. Somebody is made scapegoat and some heads roll off.
For the Republic, Guru bhukti of chandra dasha till 10-12-2019 covers almost the year. Guru bhukti (10-08-2018 to 10-12-2019), religion, culture and consideration is in abundance. Ayodhya crisis may be solved through negotiations - a win-win situation for all. Guru is the 8th, 9th and 12th lord placed in 7th in the foundation chart. This is the period when the opposition is vanquished and made to disintegrate. The religious mentality, nationalism identical with religious and cultural values will raise. The religious heads, educationalists and moral tutors have increased influence. In a democratic country, you are within your rights to protect your beliefs and values. Unfortunately, the ethos of secessionists rebound on the walls of JNU and the media is very active. The feeling of nationalism, culture are weaknesses while liberalization (making exceptions to all kinds of rules and regulations) is the commitment to democracy. If geographical restricts, rulings of courts or high handedness of the government cause suffocation to a cultural identity, they will do away with such restrictions. Freedom was given to colonial India by the British through democratic process (by an Act in their Parliament). Were any mandate taken from the citizens - whether they wanted freedom or not on this point, like a general election? Whether the country wanted freedom and if they got, how it would be (mis)managed decided by handful Congress! Freedom was in sight, my grandfather asked Mahatma Gandhi when he came to Bangalore, about the plans He had for the country after freedom. Gandhi said, "Do not worry, everything will fall in place" "Everything has fallen into pieces - two pieces on either side. My Narasimha Swamy (our Kuladaiva is Narimha Swamy) is given to Pakistan and He is angered by this partition. This gandhiman has mismanaged" said grandfather. Whether violence or non-violence by the government or the opposition, lack of concern for the masses results in havoc in the society. The period of guru is concerned with victory of old values, religions sentiments and also considerations to 'let it go'. All is not well, as it sounds.
Transit of guru in the 6th kills the enmity but there are many enemies and to kill them all, huge resources are required. It is likely being happy to receive relatives but forced on loans to entertain them! In Ayodhya crisis, the courts of the country utter disregard to the cultural sentiments - be this Hindu culture or Muslim Culture. Towards the end of the year, there is some happiness to all the parties concerned, when guru moves into dhanur rasi. Watch out, when guru is neecha thereafter, initial exuberance will wear out. Religious values (of all religions), nationalism, ethics, morality and what all you hold close to your heart are insulted, trampled and humiliated by the courts, government and the media. The believers will realize, it was not what they wanted out of Hindu renaissance. These sufferings, guilt and desire will pave way for rejuvenation of these values in 2022-23, when guru is meena rasi, in own sign identical with 10th from rasi of independence chart. That means Ayodhya, Ayyappa or Arokiyacaami (Mathura, Mysore or Mother Cow - Noun is the name of a place, person, animal or anything that is useful!) becomes more prodigious for Loksabha elections in 2024! Transit of shani in the 7th causes heart burns for both ruling and opposition parties. The ruling party will be able to deliver heavy blows to opposition congress. The government is not able to take the opposition along, always at logger heads. There will be always infightings within the Congress and BJP is not exception. Transit of nodes in 2nd-8th as well as rasi-7th implies strained relationship within the partners as well as opposition. It should be noted that all the eclipses during 2019 occur in lagna in 2nd-8th as well as rasi-7th indicate inability of the government to keep the partners in control. The eclipse during July, 2019 will challenge the very existence of the government. No confidence motion against BJP will not pull down the government.
The country is going to polls during April/May of the year, in several phases. The lunation for Phalguna maasa shows that there will be lot of commotion in the ruling party, as many people do not get the ticket to contest and they secretly work against the party. Those who got the ticket (this time lady candidates will be more) are not confident of winning - they do not see their offices, chance of winning and policies they would take up. Rahu in 10th shows that another partner in the ruling coalition may walk out. Kuja is placed in own sign in the 8th - indicating the unity of opposition at the 11th hour. Well there is not unity within them but for the time being (of polls) say for one or two months they are together to cause everlasting damage to BJP. In the polls conducted between 5th April to 05th May, ruling party has considerable edge over the opposition. There is lot of moral and religious courage. Religious practices, temples and cultural practices are hotly debated topics and not economic policies. You will see the BJP leaders at their best. BJP makes a ardent appeal that does another magic. During the polls held after 5th May, greater disappointment awaits BJP, shani and ketu are placed in the 10th house in rapt conjunction. Some of the prepoll alliances boomerang causing heavy toll on the count. Nevertheless the opposition is not able to make inroads to power, 7th lord budha has nothing to do with 10th house or the lord. However, due to rahu in 4th, minorities will have a greater say in governance. The chart for Jyesta maasa indicates that a successful government is formed by an amalgamation of parties, major stakeholder being BJP. There will not very minimal talks about religious promises made but the common policies for long term projects in engineering agriculture, foreign relationship, modern physics, electronics will be worked out. Finance does not become important nor its shortage.
Yes, you said something? "Old Man, what are your credentials? Or did you make up the story?" I am not in research nor I can roll out statistics. Nor, I do examine 24 charts in 24 hours to propound a new formula. Nor I am wise in spherical astronomy or astrology. I do not have any proficiency in mundane astrology. Nor I am world famous. Daniel Craig and other Hollywood stars are not my clients. Nor Indian political bigwigs. I confess, one central minister of prominence had consulted me long back - I have a 'thank you' letter from his private secretary. I would not show that letter without his consent - it is against professional ethics. This gentleman has not acknowledged consulting me or any astrologers in public. I am like any ordinary plumber, you find countless in street corners. Then, how do I describe myself? A humble astrologer of ordinary intelligence and infinitesimal knowledge but hard working, faithful and deeply religious - here in the web world, to make few coins. Shops, web sites, hospitals, schools and temples are here to make some business. Have you seen a temple without a hundi (Money box)? There is very little a common men like you and me, can do in national and international events. I am aware you have nothing to do with national events, it was just he curiosity. You are more concerned of your life and there is always room for improvisations. So, let the show begin......... now
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. 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. English notations are used as the site has numerous readers in Latin America and Western Europe.

Simha (Leo): For simha rasi persons, shani transits in adverse 5th. This is not much of a botheration. You tend to worry about your children, their future development, the resources very much, particularly during night fall and holidays. This will cause some unhappiness. This is not a good time for investment. You tend to overlook the future needs and you will oversubscribe to saving schemes and insurance. But half way through, you will realise, it is not possible to invest that much. The company will either forfeit or will return a paltry sum! You have a great desire to come out of your problems, particularly health problems and loans. There is also strong will power in you.
Nodes transit in 12th and 6th till March of the year. This will cause lack of proper sleep and will drive you into sudden loans and the consequences. Catching sudden pain in lower back is possible several times but for short periods.

Transit of guru in 4th is treated as a malefic transit, generally. However, it is practically seen that transit in 4th sign favours excellent education, acquisition of properties and fulfilment of all desires. You will be able to purchase vehicles, ornaments, gold etc., during this transit. You will branch out and start living separately. This is the time when married girls start living with their husbands. Students excel in their academics but they have to put great efforts. Journalists, lawyers and social workers are quite happy. All the success do not come simply on a plate, you have to put extra efforts. The efforts put in towards education will pave the way for a good job later on.

You are never under pressure or tension to perform better, best performance happens automatically, if you put hard work. Chronic health problems will disappear and litigations, are resolved in your favour. Marital discord will disappear and those whose married was delayed inordinately, will get married. This is an unfavourable transit in the sense the above good results are not served on a plate, ready for your pleasure. You will have to put considerable amount of work and then the success is assured. In the beginning, any task will seem to be impossible. The learning curve is very steep. Despite any problems, you are able to keep your head cool with proper sleep and relaxation. Old and bad habits will die to give way to new beneficial ones.

Transit of guru in 3rd for most part of the year comes as a blessing in reducing the evil effects of shani as well as eclipses. Being transit in the 3rd from rasi, guru promotes communication, expansion and acquiring new contacts. I should say, this is not a favourable transit - it causes problems in relationship with brothers, sisters, friends and partners. Expansion of business of influence does not happen easily. Successful tours and business trips are possible. You will strive hard to excel in your life. You come across good friends who are advantageous later on. You develop some religious zeal suddenly and that gives lot of moral courage. You will take up membership of elite clubs and organizations.

The financial problems will increase.
Transit of guru transits over your rasi acts as an antidote for adverse effects of nodes as well as shani. There are no vedha points for this transit. Many people of this sign get married during this transit. Transit over your rasi merely brings some popularity, good health and status. This is not a favourable position for guru and so these benefic results will not come spontaneously but you have to work hard for these. Also, you are over sensitive towards your name and this causes superfluous tensions and anxieties. And these are not got simply, you have to struggle for them. Also, you are more sensitive towards self respect. You are more conscious of your health due to some fear of impending health disaster. Such health problems are expected when guru is combust.

Due to this transit, there will be delay in all walks of life. Humiliations, being sidelined and the natives will be slighted in public. Laziness and health problems related to muscles and bones are quite common. Though there is not much of economic problems, even small amount of shortage of funds hurts the prestige.

Well, there is very little a common man like you and me, can do in national and international events. You are more concerned of your life and there is always room for improvisations. उद्दरेदात्मनात्मानम् नात्मानमवसादयेत्। आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बंधुः आत्मैव रिपुरात्मनः॥ - 5, atma samyama yoga, Srimadbhagawad geeta. [Let man raise by himself, let him not lower himself, for he alone is his friend, he alone is enemy of himself]. Running after Shri Sriman, Shri Srimathi, Durbash Chatri or Jugheads is futile! You are your own guru (durguru or sadguru). Jiddu krishanma murthy (truly, he is the enlightened and modest) implores to find your own truth. In present day world, it is not merely waste of time, it is wasting your soul and the venture is wrought with dangers. Do whatever possible by yourself, as laid down in your religion and ask for divine help. Remedial measures as mentioned for your moon-sign should be taken up. Any shanti kriya need not be done every month nor in a particular temple or place. Shanti once in a year will suffice. Intervention of priests should be kept at the minimum. ಗ್ರಹಗತಿಯ ತಿದ್ದುವನೆ ಜೋಯಿಸನು ಜಾತಕದಿ| ವಿಹಿತವಾಗಿಹುದದರ ಗತಿ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿವಿಧಿಯಿಂ|| ಸಹಿಸಿದಲ್ಲದೆ ಮುಗಿಯದಾವ ದಶೆ ಬಂದೊಡಂ| ಸಹನೆ ವಜ್ರದ ಕವಚ - ಮಂಕುತಿಮ್ಮ|| - DVG. [Does the astrologer change the horoscope? Trends happen as per natural procedures. Whatever the event, one should endure. Patience is the armor of diamond]. First of all, one should not commit sins - there is no excuse when a scholar kills his wife. As T P Kailasam said, "All the world is the stage but there are no side wings to rest for a while!" If one is in difficulty, one look at the horoscope by an astrologer is ample. Then one should take up remedial measures seriously. There is no point in visiting all the world famous astrologers in Delhi, Noida and Bangalore. Remedial measures for shani, guru, rahu or ketu are indicated for each moon-sign, if need be. Such remedial measures should be taken up without any delay.
If the eclipses take place in adverse signs from your moon sign, remedial measures like rudrabhesekha, recitation of mantras for ravi and chandra is desirable. Special pooja for your ista or kula daiva will suffice. There is no need for महारुद्र महाकाळ कालभैरव राहु तथा केतुग्रस्त ग्रहण विपत्विमोचन सकलश्रेष्ठ होम or any such elaborate measure. Even if you do not take up remedial measures, no sky will fall down on your head, there will be some discomfort and some sudden snags for some time!
