AUM SRI SAI RAM
World Peace Prediction 2020
6 April 2020
The world experienced less of peace on 25 December 2019, when Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Moon and Ketu joined in Sagittarius, all aspected by Rahu in Gemini (vata sign, signifies lungs). Virus escaped from wet markets in Wuhan China; it has had its worst effect on 40° parallel.
Beginnings of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
On December 31 last year, China alerted WHO to several cases of unusual pneumonia in Wuhan, a port city of 11 million people in the central Hubei province. Origin of the virus was unknown.
Several of those infected worked at the city’s Huanan Seafood Wholesale Market, which was shut down on January 1.
As health experts worked to identify the virus amid growing alarm, the number of infections exceeded 40.
On January 5, Chinese officials ruled out the possibility that this was a recurrence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) virus – an illness that originated in China and killed more than 770 people worldwide in 2002-2003.
On January 7, Chinese authorities identify a new type of coronavirus (called novel coronavirus or nCoV). and was identified as belonging to the coronavirus family, which includes SARS and the common cold.
Coronaviruses are common and spread through being in proximity to an infected person and inhaling droplets generated when they cough or sneeze, or touching a surface where these droplets land and then touching one’s face or nose.
Transit of Saturn Dhanus to Makara (Sagittarius to Capricorn)
On 24 January Saturn moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn where it is conjunct Sun, Moon and Mercury. Sun is naisargika atmakaraka (second significator of the soul) and karaka of personality. Moon is presiding deity of the Mind; Mercury, planet of intelligence and communication, rules the vata sign Gemini. Saturn is of vata nature, and is in his own sign of Capricorn. Capricorn is also Vata sign so airborne disease is both spread and facilitated all over world.
For the air element, the sense is touch, the sense organ is skin, the motor organ is hands, the dosha is vata. Planets are Saturn and Rahu. Hence, all over the world, people are told to wash hands, do not touch face, cough into elbow and practice social distancing. Ruler of social distancing is Saturn in Capricorn.
On 24 January Saturn moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn in Uttra Ashada nakshatra – pada 2. Uttara Ashada is ruled by Surya (Sun) and Pada 2 is ruled by Saturn. Uttara Ashada has Siva trimurthi, the karma is naasa (loss), dhatu is jiva – living beings. Hence, effect is very strong on living beings. Uttara Ashada is fixed nature, the process is dissolve.
The symbol of Uttara Ashada nakshatra is planks of a bed. This is not a bed of comfort, asceticism is indicated. Sleeping on a hard bed means giving up of desires and needs and living simply.
Mars into Capricorn
On 22 March, Mars transited into Capricorn, where it is conjunct Saturn. The problem with this transit is that the early part of it is a bit strained. Mars is in planetary war with Saturn upto March 31st creating stress and tension in a fairly big way with Mars’s drive and appetite for results in following lawful public order. Mars goes into overdrive here – and where there is normally a rather painful planetary war between Mars and Saturn, what happens is the extroversion, the externalisation of pure frustration with lockdown orders, containment, and a drive to get outside and do something and get away from containment.
Saturn’s orb of influence is 9° and Mars will not escape the orb of Saturn until 15 April. Saturn will remain in Uttara Ashada, Mars will be in Shravana Nakshatra at that time. Shravana is ruled by the Moon, the presiding deity of the Mind. Hence we see that Mars, director of energy and will, has an effect on the Mind in a strong manner and fashion. In this wise, we must recall, “As you think, so you become”; we must recall yad bhavati, tad bhavatum, as the feeling, so the result. We must also watch our words, for words affect the cells in the body; what we say out loud becomes a spell that affects every cell, every electron, proton, neutron in the cell. Words are powerful. In Sanathana Dharma, we have the principle of true humanness, which is built on trikarana suddhi, the unity of thoughts, words and actions. This is human integrity.
We say often that the planets can raise us up, they can pull us down. You may propitiate the planets with puja, hommam, stotram and mantram; you may propitiate the planets with trikarana suddhi, the purity of thoughts, words and actions. Here, we suggest you consider how you may take up the energy of Mars – Mangala, to your personal benefit.
Om angarakaraya vidmahe
shakti hastaaya dheemahi
tanno bhooma prachodayaat
“Om. Let me meditate on him who has hero in his flag, Oh, He who has power to solve problems, give me higher intellect, And let the son of the Earth Mother illuminate my mind.“
Jupiter into Capricorn:
Jupiter moves into Capricorn on 29 March 2020.
Jupiter is normally debilitated in Capricorn; here, today, will not be debilitated. The neechabanga rules, the one that says Neecha is canceled if the debilitated planet is aspected by a planet in exaltation or own sign. So we have Saturn in its own sign (Saturn is Lord of Capricorn) which is the first cancellation or neechabanga. Then we have Mars: Mars is exalted, fulfilling the second neechabanga condition for Jupiter, thus making Jupiter strong in this sign. We also note that Jupiter is vargottama; it is in the same sign in the Navamsha chart.
On this day – 30 March 2020 – in these times of Coronavirus, an important transit has occurred: Jupiter has moved from Sagittarius to Capricorn, which will have significant impact on how this virus is progressing worldwide. Jupiter is a multiplier, an expander; we will see a conjunction which will build resilience, and Jupiter will EXPAND THAT RESILIENCE. The resilience is brought about by
- cancellation of debilitation of Jupiter (neechabanga)
- Mars out of orb of influence by Saturn
- Exaltation of Mars able to be taken up for positive effect
- Saturn in Capricorn has deep respect for the rule of law, the law of lockdown – Janata Curfew – containment, slow process, slow recovery, adhering to the mainstream values
- Ability to effective take up of Saturn energy for Social Distancing
- Influence of Jupiter as peace-maker to bring softer, peaceful energy to Mars and Saturn, normally enemies, normally in conflict
- Influence of Jupiter will make matters more positive and reduce the effects of Coronavirus
The effect of Jupiter will be profound. We must keep in mind the effect of Jupiter conjunct Ketu. This means Jupiter is multiplying the pandemic and mass infections that the Rahu-Ketu axis can breed.
Ketu as Pita/Vata karaka for Disease
Rahu is karaka for poisoning, snake-bite, chronic or incurable disease, and phobias. Ketu is karaka for viral and infective diseases, epidemics, defects of speech, diagnostic confusion and surgical operations. In this time of Coronavirus COVID-19 Ketu has been conjunct Jupiter, who is a multiplier of energy. Hence, conjunction of Jupiter, Ketu will bring about situation of disease spreading quickly.
MARS: 19TH APRIL 2020 TO 13TH MAY 2020 During this period, the problem will be settled. All planets except Ketu will have transited out of Sagittarius; Mars as surgeon-general of the navagrahas will have strong effect to provide one remedy for Coronavirus.
Jupiter will remain in Capricorn until 3 July, when it will retrograde back into Sagittarius. Jupiter goes retrograde every year for about four months which is about a third of the time. For this reason, Jupiter retrogrades are fairly uncommon compared to Mercury, Venus, and Mars. When Jupiter is retrograde, we also tend to have less faith in our leaders. We may see less faith in their ability lead us out of dark times. At the same time when the planet Jupiter makes its transit in a retrograde motion, natives become capable of doing several wonders by accomplishing the very unusual of tasks. In short, you will be able to complete those projects which have been declared impossible by those who sneer and scoff. The willpower and determination of such inhabitants also increases significantly. Hence, it can be concluded that Jupiter retrograde can bring some positive results extravagantly.
Sun into Aries
On 14 April, the Sun will enter Aries, Mesha Sankranti and Solar New Year. The Sun will be exalted. At this point the Sun (heretofore in Pisces and receiving 3rd aspect of Saturn) will leave the drishti of Saturn and we will feel much better and released in personality, more free to act within ourselves. At this point in time, we can expect more good and positive changes in the world, although many places in the world will continue with the Coronavirus lockdown and Janata Curfew for a time. Yet, many will feel better inside. Sun exalted makes us feel like this.
Mars into Aquarius
On May 3rd, Mars will leave Capricorn and transit into Aquarius. Mars in Aquarius’s individual goals are interwoven very tightly with those of the generation, social movement, or large conceptual group to which one belongs, such as visionary scientists, marketplace agents, or futuristic social-change thinkers. Mars will be generating ideas of social change, welfare change and change to governmental systems for the better. However, in this sign, while Mars can build the peace, help of other planets is needful.
Mars needs to network in Aquarius. Mars as warrior has outgoing energy that needs strong management and regulation. As there is no more conjunction, – yuti – with Saturn, the energy may take the form of a scattergun approach or misplaced enthusiasm. For Mangala-Kumbha, the fundamental active modality consists of methodical identification of working principles (Shani) connected into a theory, followed by systematic testing of the phenomena of the world against the lawful (Shani) predictions of that theory.
We may look to Mars for building the world peace with coronavirus, but much self-discipline will be needed.
Kaal Sarp Yoga
These are times of kala sarpa yoga, the Serpent of Time, wherein all planets are between the Moon’s nodes. This yoga has a pronounced mundane action. It affects national issues rather than individuals, although there is an effect on the mind as the Moon is also affected by this condition. The Kaal Sarp Yoga is formed by Rahu (poisons) in Gemini (air sign) (affects lungs) and Ketu (epidemics) in Sagittarius (fire sign) conjunct Jupiter for these last two months where Jupiter + Ketu (then joined by Mars) (illness, operations) have been busy expanding both illness and epidemic. When the Moon transits Rahu and moves into the space between Rahu and Ketu, it is kemadruma, and we feel weak, we feel exposed, we may also feel internally down and out. This is a temporary condition until Moon passes Ketu and joins the other planets.
Kaal Sarp Yoga will not be broken until Venus (Shukra) will pass Rahu in Gemini.
We may pray for world peace, we may pray for the souls of those who pass over under the influence of coronavirus. It is a sacred duty to pray for ancestors, and for those who pass in times of epidemic.
Thanks and Best Regards,
