There are FOUR eclipses in 2014 (NASA Eclipse Web). Highlights of the eclipses are –

  • The two lunar eclipses precede the two solar eclipses
  • The first pair occurs in April 2014 – lunar eclipse on April 15 and annular solar eclipse on April 29
  • The second pair occurs in October 2014 – lunar eclipse on Oct 8 and partial solar eclipse on Oct 23

Lunar eclipse

The first eclipse of the year is visible throughout the Western Hemisphere and that makes western astrologers very worried with Susan Miller predicting disaster throughout the month for the western nations at least.

People born in Chitrā nakṣatra, Virgo ascendant (either Lagna or Moon) benefit spiritually. You can check your Birth Nakṣatra from this link. You can check your Lagna and Moon from any Vedic astrologer. You should know this at least. How long will you live in ignorance?

This can imply a serious decision to get away from the troubles of the mundane world and move towards the high Himalayas which are symbolic of the heights of spiritual growth, and they are still growing.

If your lagna is in Virgo, this can imply a little turmoil in your personal life with your spouse suspecting your intentions. Best is to try to talk and explain yourself, but don’t do this on Tuesday. The eclipse is happening on a Tuesday and it will not work in your favour in mundane matters. If the navāṁśa lagna is Virgo, then it can spell bad things for spouse and some separative influences come into play.

I just checked my database and found a few thousand names … maybe we could compile a separate list of famous people touched by the lunar eclipse who will cry ‘Hari OM tat sat’.

Of my near and dear ones, we find my mother is definitely touched by this eclipse as it occurs on her ascendant. She has Virgo lagna both in rāśi and navāṁśa. It could be a trying moment in personal front especially given the fact that spouse has been ailing and is bedridden.

Spouse or power running away

If you think your spouse is running away or is separating for whatever reason or if you are going to lose your power and position, it is desirable to pray to the great Hanuman to bring her back or bring back your kingdom. This is the form of Hanuman who jumped across the the Indian ocean from India to Śrī Lanka both (a) to find Sītā and reunite her with Śrī Rama and (b) bring back His kingdom. The powerful pañca mukha Hanuman mantra –
ॐ हरि मर्कटाय स्वाहा
om hari markaṭāya svāhā

When we wrote about Crimea breaking from Ukraine, so many were alarmed but then this is only the beginning of a very long daśā (vedic period) of Jupiter which is involved in a battle with Mercury in the natal chart of Ukraine.

Nikita-KhrushchevTIMELet us say that for some reason whatever, Nikita Khrushchev had not had that whim about adding Crimea to Ukraine in the erstwhile USSR, then in 1991, Crimea would have been part of Russia. What is really happening is that the whim and fancy of some historical leaders, who sat and drew lines on maps and then advised Nikita Khrushchev to make that gift of land, is being reversed. It was a forgone conclusion that Crimea is going to be operated out of Ukraine and like any surgery, this one too is going to be a little painful. But you got to give credit to the ‘doctors’ who have performed this miraculous surgery without shedding any blood. It was excellent anesthesia – to say the least. What’s happening in the world feels like a slow dream with people saying and doing things they have to say to be politically correct. And that’s fine.

Phālguṇa Pūrṇimā: Holi

But this Sunday, 16 Mar, 2014 on Phālguṇa Pūrṇimā, when everyone in India celebrates the great festival of Holi playing colours with Kṛṣṇa, Crimea will become a part of Russia. Every Pūrṇimā indicates the spiritual power of a great guru. We have a list.

Pūrṇimā Sun Full Moon Guru’s Light
1 Vaiśākha Aries Viśākhā Buddha
2 Jyaiṣṭha Taurus Jyeṣṭha Yama Dharmarāja [Vaṭa Pūrṇimā]
3 Āsāḍha Gemini Āsāḍha Vyāsa, Mahāvira [Guru Pūrṇimā]
4 Śrāvaṇa Cancer Śrāvaṇa Viṣṇu [Rakṣa Bandana]
5 Bhādra Leo Bhadrapada Uma-Maheśvara [Madhu Pūrṇimā], Indra
6 Aśvina Virgo Aśvinī Kṛṣṇa rāsa [Śarad], Lakṣmī [Kojāgarī] or Kārtikeya [Kumāra]
7 Kārtika Libra Kṛttikā Guru Nanak, Tripura Sundarī
8 Mārgaśira Scorpio Mṛgāśiras Dattātreya
9 Pauṣa Sagittarius Puṣyā Durgā [Śākhāmbarī Pūrṇimā]
10 Magha Capricorn Magha Hari, Śrāddha Devī [Best day for donations]
11 Phālguṇa Aquarius Phālguṇī Kṛṣṇa (Holi Festival)
12 Chaitra Pisces Chitrā Hanuman, Śrī Chandra

It is very interesting to note that the great phālguṇa pūrṇimā having the power of Śrī Kṛṣṇa was chosen for the referendum in Crimea. The way I see it, people will be dancing in the streets and playing colours in Crimea on that day. Let us not forget that the Mercury-Jupiter exact conjunction shows the Bhagavat Gita, the spiritual power of the holy words of Śrī Kṛṣṇa.

EU Trigger

ukraine-divide We thought that the Berlin Wall was down and that the German people would live in peace, but looks like the rapid expansion of the European Union is being perceived by some in Europe as German expansion. Someone once said that “true freedom starts with economic freedom”. Hypothetically, if a nation becomes completely indebted to the EU and is in such a pathetic emasculated state where it has to beg for alms for survival, that too on a monthly basis, would it not be apt to say that it has lost its freedom? I don’t know – let the economists ponder this. But it is this fear that has triggered the present Crisis. This is indicated by the graha yuddha occurring in Leo, the ninth house of fortune and freedom. As such the Sun does rule wealth.

Mars is in Virgo: Mesa Rasi Kanyā aṁśa shows the logical perfectionist Germany but this can indicate other people as well. That is the trigger to the deadly piśāca bādhaka duryoga in the chart of Ukraine. It is like a ghost attack and you cannot see the enemy.

What Next?

The real problem is not about Crimea joining the Russian Federation in some form or another, but this is the beginning of the great graha yuddha of Jupiter and Mercury. Such a combination in the chart of Śrī Kṛṣṇa showed the Mahabharata war. It also showed the singing of the Bhagavat Gita just before the start of the Mahabharata. And now after all these years we have a similar situation in the chart of Ukraine. But unlike Kṛṣṇa the Moon is nowhere around and instead Mercury and Jupiter show the warring factions – Russia and Ukraine respectively, who are actually brothers – just like the Pāṇḍava and Kaurava.

The Future

This Crimea surgery from Ukraine is not the end of Ukraine’s problems. It will start a much bigger rumble inside in the years to come, starting with 2018 [Mercury antardaśā of Jupiter daśā] when some economic treaties [Mercury] will again trigger unrest. In the coming years there will be considerable social unrest in Ukraine. People will leave their homes and see so much suffering, death and disease. Does that mean another divide, the East-West language-culture divide, can split Ukraine into two parts? It can be prevented if the people realise that taking sides with foreign nations or groups is the trigger. All they have to do is talk to each other [Mercury] and stop taking sides as it causes fear in the minds of other Ukraine people.

The most peculiar feature of this entire period is that the leaders and people will not want to talk to each other [Mercury rules communication and speech]. And that can only increase the power of Rāhu leading to doubts, mistrust and division.

MH370picMalaysia Airlines flight MH370 went missing over the South China Sea on Saturday morning (8 Mar, 2014). The Boeing 777-200 took off from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at 12:41 a.m. Saturday. It was scheduled to arrive in Beijing at 6:30 am the same day, after a 2,700-mile journey. Around 1:30 am, air traffic controllers in Subang, outside Kuala Lumpur, lost contact with the plane as it was flying over the sea between Malaysia and Vietnam. MH370 with 227 passengers and 12 crew members. It was cruising at 35,000 feet and the skies were clear. Besides, no distress signal was deployed.

First Post15 Mar
mh370chart
Even after three days there is no information on the missing flight MH370. In the age of information, not having answers instantly is feels horrible. But this is not the first time such a thing has happened. There are all sorts of stories afloat about terrorists but nothing of that sort seems to have happened. The vedic chart drawn for the moment of take-off for flight MH370 resembles another one – Air France Flight 447 (abbreviated AF447).

AF447 was a scheduled international flight from Galeão International Airport in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to Charles de Gaulle International Airport in Paris, France. On 1 Jun 2009, the Airbus A330-203 airliner serving the flight crashed into the Atlantic Ocean, resulting in the deaths of all 216 passengers and 12 aircrew. The accident was the deadliest in the history of Air France. Details of AF447
af447

Did not crash on water

Various Theories are doing the rounds, particularly about the flight falling into the ocean as tiny objects are found on the sea. Oil slicks, stretching for metres in the South China Sea, gave the first glimpse of hope followed by the spotting of an orange object and then a door! But one by one, all that has been dismissed.

Jyotiṣa Rules

For a natural disaster, the rajas planets Venus and Mercury must be afflicted by Mars. Further, for a flight (vehicle), chara rāśi (movable signs) are expected.

  • MH370: Venus and Mercury are together in Capricorn (chara rāśi) having the graha dṛṣṭi of Mars from Libra
  • AF447: Venus and Mercury are together in Aries (chara rāśi) with Mars

The violence comes from storm clouds or water elements (ruled by Venus) if Mars is in Venus navāṁśa, else it is from earth movement (ruled by Mercury) if in Mercury navāṁśa. Mars would need a solar trigger.

  • MH370: Mars is in Libra (Ve) navāṁśa aspected by exalted Sun in Aries navāṁśa
  • AF447: Mars is in Taurus (Ve) navāṁśa conjoined the Sun

Having confirmed that there was a natural disaster happening (of some sort), we need to check failure of the machine-energy system. For this, the Sun must be effectively blocked by a malefic. From Sūrya Lagna, Rāhu must be ill placed and also aspect the Sun. Rāhu is always looking to destroy the Sun by its conjunctions and aspects. Jupiter can intervene and save but then the negative must he higher to confirm that the machine-energy system failed.

  • MH370: Sun in Aquarius with Rāhu in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in 9th house from it in Libra. Jupiter does aspect Rāhu to try to save the machine but the conjunction of Saturn and Mars shows that the evil is much greater.
  • AF447: Sun in Taurus with Rāhu in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in 9th house from it in Capricorn. There is no saving grace of any benefic planet.

Now that we know that it was a natural disaster like a terrible electrical storm that demolished the aircraft, we need to check for survivors. For this we need to examine Jupiter, the saviour of the human race. We also need to see the position of Ketu, the significator of the vertical (aerial) direction. These should neither be ill placed, weak nor beaten up to save some lives.

  • MH370: Both Jupiter and Ketu in duṣthāna. Jupiter is in the 8th house while Ketu is in the 6th house. Involvement of 8th house shows few survivors or none at all.
  • AF447: Both Jupiter and Ketu in duṣthāna. Jupiter is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in the 3rd house while Ketu is in the 8th house. Involvement of 8th house shows few survivors or none at all.

No terrorist attack

Based on the unknown identities of two passengers, it was speculated that they were terrorists who had purchased ‘one-way’ tickets together for travel to Amsterdam, Europe via Beijing using stolen passports. This happens all the time in this part of the world. Even authorities in the airports are known to tear away visa pages from passports for the black market where these fetch good money from desperate immigrant seekers. People thought it was the ‘toothpaste’ bomb. Honestly, if toothpaste is going to be used for terror bombs, then most of us will have to go back to using dantoon (neem sticks that are chewed to create a brush at one end).

Finally, the Chinese Martyrs’ Brigade (CMB for short) realised, a little too late, that it’s a good time for some media attention and claimed it did the terror job. The encrypted Hushmail message stated “you kill one of our clan – we kill 100 of yours as pay back” referring to a 29-people stabbing incident at the train station in Kunming, China. It is very unlikely that one of them could have jumped 35,000 feet in the air and stabbed the aircraft with his knife! Those things happen only in Chinese Kung-Fu movies.

Anyway, the chart does not indicate a terror attack although Mars is involved with two other malefics in the 12th house (foreign travel). Mars will protect his home, the ascendant which simply means that it would put up a good fight against Rāhu and Saturn.

Conclusion

Having ruled out terror and such things, the two options are whether (A) the natural disaster (Mras afflicts Mercury, Venus) like storm or some electric spark in the high altitude was the chief cause or (B) whether a mechanical fault (Sun-Rahu) was the chief cause.

Most reports are that the weather was good but that’s never sufficient to confirm local activity on the spot. While the natural trigger was minimal as Mars is also Lagna lord for MH370 Chart, it was the chief cause for AF470 as it was the 12th Lord. Either way, none seem to have survived (C) Ketu and Jupiter in dusthana

Praśna Mārga states that the disturbances in a journey are to be studied from the 7th bhāva.

The 7th house is Taurus and is vargottama indicating great strength, and that was the only thing which troubled me as a vargottama lagna has the power to protect. But the 7th bhāva has the rāśi dṛṣṭi of Saturn, Rāhu and Mars, all retrograde. Further, the 7th lord Venus (both rāśi and aṁśa) is placed in Capricorn and is involved in a parivartana yoga with Saturn. Therefore, instead of Venus, Saturn will be indicating the disturbances in the journey. Saturn is with Mars and Rāhu indicating the deaths of the passengers and a deadly end to the journey. That was the basis of the prediction made in the article. The exalted Moon in the 7th bhāva is also the bādhakeśa and under the aspect of Mars is going to form Rudra yoga.
A closer look at the navamśa shows a pāpa kartari yoga on the 7th bhāva caused by Sun, Saturn and a debilitated Ketu.

Recent Report on Flight Path
The latest reports on the flight path indicate a retrograde behaviour where, instead of flying north towards Beijing, the aircraft reversed and the final direction it chose to fly was South-West which is ruled by Rāhu. It is now clear that among the 3 planets – Saturn, Mars and Rāhu, the latter decided the flight path reversal. Saturn has the parivartana with Venus and planets conjoining are Mars and Rāhu. Among the two, Rāhu is the one afflicting as Mars is lagneśa. Besides, Rāhu has higher longitude.
Khareśa: Rāhu is Khareśa of the chart as it lords the 4th bhāva from navamśa lagna. It afflicts the lagneśa Mars as well as the functional controller of the journey viz. Saturn. Rāhu is also debilitated in Sagittarius navamśa which specifically indicates “fall from a height”.

Sabotage
The Guardian reports “According to two US officials who spoke to ABC News, the 777’s data reporting system was shut down at 1.07am, while the transponder – which sends back information to civilian radar regarding performance, location and altitude – was turned off at 1.21am.”
The scheduled journey was 5h49’ and the compressed Vimśottari daśā is given below:
Vimśottari Mahā Daśā (Using local Malaysia time)

Sun: 2014-03-08 (5:47:14 am) – 2014-03-08 (6:03:42 am)
The last known position of MH370 was at 1.21am when the transponder was shut off at 35,000 feet roughly 90 miles off the east coast of Malaysia, as the Boeing MH370 with 239 people on board made its way towards Vietnam, en route to Beijing. This was a minute after the period of Rāhu started. It was during this period of Rāhu that the flight was turned in the South-Western direction.
From there, plot indications show the plane zigzagged towards the Thai island of Phuket and then, at 2.15am, when the period of Jupiter started, MH370 either (A) continued on northwest route which would lead it towards the Andaman Islands and perhaps onward to Europe OR (B) further south. Malaysian military officials have previously confirmed that an aircraft that could be MH370 was last seen on military radar at 2.15am some 200 miles off Malaysia’s west coast. It is noteworthy that the missing flight was suddenly seen when Jupiter’s period started.

Hand of Nature
We cannot ignore the natural elements indicated by Mercury and Venus in chara rāśi having the dṛṣṭi of Mars.
There is no further information at to the time of end of this journey. Where would the aircraft be between 2:54’am to 3:46’am? That’s the question which if answered, should be able to locate the flight.
What is most disturbing is the role of the Sun which is the lord of the tenth house showing the boss or controller of the flight. The Sun is in the 6th bhāva from Ārūḍha Lagna and is also in a navamśa ruled by Mars, which points a finger at the pilots. The 3rd and 8th bhāva from ārūḍha lagna is either ruled by Ketu or has Ketu in it showing the accident as the final report is likely to say.

  1. No. it’s not pilot suicide! Such theories are quite baseless.
  2. It could be a hijacking as is indicated by the malefic Saturn and Rahu and Mars
  3. But that is not why the disaster happened which is likely to have killed everyone. There was the hand of the elements and it was a watery grave. Honestly I don’t know why they are looking in the Andaman Islands. They should spend the time looking in the water.
  4. I have always maintained that the passengers were death (or at least unconscious) when the final end happened. So it was painless. Point is what caused this state – I don’t know as yet.

The time has been corrected due to the inputs from Constantin. Thanks to him I think we have a more accurate chart. The Rashi chakra does not change but the varga have been altered

Rahu-Ketu debilitated in Lagna-7H axis with Mars in 10H … not much hope in this matter as 12L Ketu and Mars are intent on doing the Pisacha thing at night. The division will happen at night time, after 7PM. Note that Ketu is in Gemini with the sound क (ka) as in क्रिमीया (krimīyā) Crimea. This is the organ that will be removed. Mars shows Russia.

Mercury is COMBUST indicating loss of lands and property for the sake of spiritual upliftment as 7H (relationship, RUSSIA) and 10H (ego, status) shall be destroyed
Jupiter is COMBUST indicating that the Lagna and 4th bhava shall undergo serious cleansing and spiritual growth

When the Moon goes to Rohini on 7 March, Ukraine could feel the pain.
May Shiva bring peace on the world

Shyam Devani, a budding PJC Student adds…
Last year in your note titled “Chelyabinsk Meteor” you concluded with the following…
The navāṁśa has an exalted Ketu in Sagittarius lagna showing that this is definitely an indication from the heavens of a great spiritual change to come in the Christian nations. Russia is the unstated capital of the orthodox ancient Christian church which is so very different from the Protestant church. We have just also heard about the resignation of the Pope Benedict. What can all this mean? Jupiter and Mercury conjoining the Moon in the 5th house is indicative of the power of the “word of god” which in India would have been translated to mean the Bhagavat Gita. We wonder in what manner this “word of God” is going to change things in Russia or Europe to be more precise.
Given the above, thee are some interesting details worth sharing…
The first Christian ruler of Russia converted to Christianity in Crimea.
In the 10th Century, Vladimir Sviatoslavich the Great (often called the prince of Novgorod), great-grandson of Rurik (the traditional founder of the Russian state), had assembled a Varangian army and reconquered Novgorod from his brother Yaropolk. By 980 Vladimir had consolidated the Kievan realm from modern-day Ukraine to the Baltic Sea. In 988, having taken the town of Chersonesos in Crimea (presently part of Sevastopol) Vladimir converted to Christianity, got married and eventually proceeded to Christianize Russia. The place of Vladimir’s baptism is marked by St. Vladimir’s Cathedral.
It appears that Crimea has a little more to it than just a few Russian speaking people and a bit of manufacturing
Note: I am not an expert on Russian history.
Final observation for whatever it is worth: Crimea was given away by Khrushchev in 1954 when Saturn was in Libra…this is the second Saturn return.

Dharma is seen in the 9th bhāva. Mercury as the lagneśa in the ninth bhāva indicates freedom (9H) of speech (Mercury) showing a parliamentary democracy while the conjunction with Ketu (religion, spirituality, belligerence) shows the dominant theocracy. Iran combines elements of a parliamentary democracy with a religious theocracy run by the country’s clergy, wherein the Supreme Leader wields significant influence. A multicultural nation comprising numerous ethnic and linguistic groups, most inhabitants are Shi’ite Muslims, the Iranian rial is its currency, and Persian is the official language.

Iran-Iraq War (1980-88)

Coming to the Iran-Iraq war (1980-88), we have seen that the opportunity that Iraq was looking for came into reality with the Islamic Revolution. With ample support from the western powers, Iraq started a long war with Iran claiming many of the border territories [Mars conjoins 3rd lord (neighbour) Sun in Capricorn in the 8th bhāva in rāśi chart]. Moon is māraka and conjoins bādhakeśa Jupiter, besides being the 6th lord in navāśa. On 22 Sep 1980 under Moon-Sun-Mars aśottari daśā, the Iraqi army invaded Iran at Khuzestan, precipitating the Iran–Iraq War. Although Saddam Hussein’s forces made several early advances, by 1982 the Iranian forces successfully managed to drive the Iraqi army back into Iraq. Despite receiving large amounts of foreign financial and military aid (including chemical weapons1), all of Saddam’s subsequent offensives were thrown back. In 1987, under Moon-Jupiter aśṭottari daśā, Iran used economic warfare (Jupiter is bādhakeśa) plans and tried to close the Persian Gulf to stop the flow of Iraqi, Kuwaiti and Saudi oil, as a way to strangle Iraq, with which it had been fighting a bloody war for almost seven years. On 15-16 Oct 1987 (Moon-Jup-Jup aśṭottari daśā), Iran hit American supertankers with Silkworm missiles only to face retaliation on October 19 when two U.S. warships shelled an Iranian oil platform in the Persian Gulf.

iran-d9
The war ended on 20 Aug 1988 (Moon daśā Saturn antara) with both sides having lost 1.25 million people including many children! Mahari Jaimini’s dictum “when Jupiter and Saturn conjoin, both the native and enemy are destroyed” is fully applicable. Ātmakāraka Sun is in Virgo (karakāṁśa) conjoined Jupiter and Saturn confirming the final result of this war with neighbour (Sun) as a stalemate with huge death toll.

Iran and World

The ninth house determines the world view of the nation and this dharma of Iran is also its world view. However the manner in which the world will react to this is also going to be determined by the 9th bhāva. Aquarius in the ninth house invariably creates confusion and fear of all kinds and the world has always been fearful of the manner in which this Islamic revolution has progressed. Especially since the 6th lord Ketu is also in the 9th house, it indicates battles and enmity as a part of its destiny. Mercury conjoining Ketu shows the United States (Gemini) as the chief proponent of those who will try to contain the belligerence of Ketu and will use Mercurial means (money, finance) as the chief tool. Rāhu is the co-lord of the 9th bhāva and in 1984 (Moon daśā Rāhu antara), the first sanctions were imposed against Iran that prohibit weapons sales and all U.S. assistance to Iran.

However, it was only with the advent of Mercury daśā that the World took a very serious view of the nuclear enrichment program for weapons development and the Iran Sanctions Act (ISA – renamed in 2006) became the chief means to coerce Iran to comply. Over the years, sanctions have taken a serious toll on Iran’s economy and people. Since 1979, the United States has led international efforts to use sanctions to influence Iran’s policies, particularly Iran’s uranium enrichment program, which Western governments fear is intended for developing the capability to produce nuclear weapons. Iran counters that its nuclear program is for civilian purposes, including generating electricity and medical purposes. Nuclear talks between Iran and Western governments have almost always failed and this has only created further doubts about Iran’s intentions.

There are many loopholes and losses involved in the sanctions –

  1. Unlike other US sanctions programs, foreign subsidiary companies of US companies are not restricted from doing business with Iran, even to the extent of supplying US-origin goods to Iran
  2. sanctions have had the counter effect of protecting Iran in some ways, for example the 2007 imposition of U.S. sanctions against Iranian financial institutions to a high degree made Iran immune to the then emerging global recession
  3. U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control had approved nearly 10,000 exceptions to U.S. sanctions rules worldwide (by 2010) over the preceding decade by issuing special licenses for American companies. It defeats the purpose of having sanctions in the first place
  4. sanctions created new business opportunities for Iranian companies to develop in order to fill the gap left by foreign contractors
  5. European and U.S. sanctions do not affect Iran’s electricity exports, which creates a loophole for Iran’s natural gas reserves
  6. According to Bloomberg News, Boeing and Exxon have said that new Iran sanctions would cost $25 billion in U.S. exports

Yet it is obvious that the sanctions have been having the desired effect of bringing the Iranians to the negotiating table – after all, we share this planet and the risk of nuclear bombs at the hands of a belligerent nation is too big a risk to overlook or take lightly.

  1. Iran may lose up to $60 billion in energy investments due to global sanctions. This simply means a big financial crunch for everyone.
  2. expensive basic goods and an aging and increasingly unsafe aircraft fleet – as an example, 17 planes have crashed over the past 25 years, killing approximately 1,500 people
  3. Akbar E. Torbat, “overall, the sanctions’ economic effect” on Iran “has been significant, while its political effect has been minimal
  4. September 2013, the International Chamber of Commerce-Iran posted an open letter by 157 Iranian economists, lawyers, and journalists complaining of the humanitarian consequences of sanctions and calling on their colleagues across the world to support the humanitarian campaign against sanctions on Iran and to persuade their governments to take steps to resolve the underlying conflict – it’s obvious that’s its hurting
  5. $100 billion of Iran’s money is frozen in foreign banks because of the sanctions
  6. 85,000 cancer patients require chemotherapy and radiotherapy which are now scarce. Iranians with serious illnesses have been put at imminent risk by the unintended consequences of international sanctions, which have led to dire shortages of life-saving medicines such as chemotherapy drugs for cancer and bloodclotting agents for haemophiliacs. Western governments have built waivers into the sanctions regime to ensure that essential medicines get through, but those waivers are not functioning

Keeping this in view, we need to examine the New Deal …

History

Iran, historically known as Persia and officially as the Islamic Republic of Iran since 1980, is a country in Western Asia. Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdom in 2800 BCE. The Iranian Medes unified the country into the first of many empires in 625 BCE, after which it became the dominant cultural and political power in the region. Iran reached the pinnacle of its power during the Achaemenid Empire founded by Cyrus the Great in 550 BCE, which at its greatest extent comprised major portions of the ancient world, stretching from the Indus Valley in the east, to Thrace and Macedon on the north-eastern border of Greece, making it the largest empire the world had yet seen. The empire collapsed in 330 BCE following the conquests of Alexander the Great, eventually rising to prominence once more after the establishment of the Sasanian dynasty in 224 CE, under which Iran became one of the leading powers of Western and Central Asia for the next four centuries.

In 633 CE, Arab Muslims invaded Iran and conquered it by 651 CE. Iran thereafter played a vital role in the subsequent Islamic Golden Age, producing numerous influential scientists, scholars, artists, and thinkers. The emergence in 1501 of the Safavid dynasty, which promoted Twelver Shia Islam as the official religion, marked one of the most important turning points in Iranian and Muslim history. The Persian Constitutional Revolution of 1906 established the nation’s first parliament, which operated within a constitutional monarchy. Following a coup d’état instigated by the UK and USA in 1953, Iran gradually became autocratic.

Revolution

Growing dissent against foreign influence and political repression culminated in the Iranian (Islamic) Revolution with the return of Ayatollah Khomeini on Thursday, 1 February 1979 (after the Shah left on 17 January 1979). This was one of the “days that shook the world” (BBC). Some astrologers use this date, the return of Khomeini, as the chart of the Islamic Republic, but the Republic was formed only a few days later on 11 February 1979 by a proclamation at 2pm of the Islamic Revolutionary Government. There was bloody fighting in the streets for a few days before this final takeover and February 11, 1979 is labelled as ‘The day the Shah fell’. Just like the independence of India in 1947 which led to the establishment of republic in 1950, this Iran Independence of 11 February 1979 was the formation of the interim government on 1 April 1979 which established the Republic in 1980. Therefore, the correct Chart for the Islamic Revolution of Iran would be 11 February, 1979. We call this the Iran Revolution Chart and the one of 1980 as the Republic Chart, just like the India Independence Chart (1947) and the Republic Chart (1950).

Pahlavi Dynasty 1925–1979
Interim Government 1979–1980
Islamic Republic 1980–present

Further, Iran radio broadcast a message at 2PM that the army was staying neutral in the battle between the old Shah’s regime and the incoming revolutionary presence of the Ayatollah Khomeini and his supporters. It was on 11 Feb 1979 that the Shah’s prime minister resigned and left his office thereby effectively giving the Ayatollah control of the reins of government. And, to this day, Iran celebrates February 11 as the birth of its Islamic Revolution.

Iran Islamic Revolution Chart

iran_revolution
Lagneśa Mercury in the 9th bhāva indicates people who are determined to fight for freedom and justice which is a very good sign but its conjunction with the headless, militant Ketu shows fundamentalism dominating the logic. It was a forgone conclusion that under such stars, a referendum in December 1979 (Mercury daśā Sun antara Saturn pratyantara) approved a theocratic constitution thereby bringing about a complete transition of power from the Sun (Pahlavi dynasty, Shah of Iran) to Saturn (also 9th lord, indicating the religious head). Note the parivartana yoga between Sun and Saturn involving the 8th house of legacy or inheritance as well as the Saturn lording the 9th house of religion. Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini returned from exile to Tehran to become the head of the revolution and religion as well as the state.

The combination also indicates battles and wars as Ketu is the 6th lord (enemy in destiny) and is also significator of armed forces. Mars the co-lord of 6th house of enemies is exalted showing that the enemy would be very strong and will attack as Mars is in the 8th house showing long-term war and disease, death as well as long-term suffering. Sun (3rd lord, neighbour) conjoining the 6th lord shows that the immediate or first enemy at the door is a neighbour who has ‘land claims’ as Sun conjoins Mars, the land significator. This was the Iran-Iraq conflict.

Whats with Russia (starting letter र-ra) and the places having starting letter च (cha) like Chelyabinsk or Chernobyl? At least prima facie we find the letter च (cha) in the sign Pisces which is the 6th house of troubles, accidents and suffering from the name letter of Russia.
Apparently, at about 09:30 local time, a very big meteor burned up over Chelyabinsk, a city in Russia just east of the Ural mountains, and about 1500 kilometers east of Moscow. The fireball was incredibly bright, rivaling the Sun! There was a pretty big sonic boom from the fireball, which set off car alarms and shattered windows. Varahamihira talks of these bright meteors he call’s Ketu’s which are always ominous portents of the destiny of the nation.Chernobyl was in the SW direction (Rahu) from the capital Moscow whereas Chelyabinsk is to the East (Sun) of Moscow.
In this video we notice the huge shock impact which made the car sirens and other alerts go off. With a blinding flash and a booming shock wave, the meteor blazed across the western Siberian sky and exploded with the force of 20 atomic bombs, injuring more than 1000 people as it blasted out windows and spread panic in a city of 1 million.
At least 112 people have been seriously hurt among the 1100 injured, according to the Interior Ministry. About 200 children who had been at schools were among the hurt from flying glass and debris. While NASA estimated the meteor was only about the size of a bus and weighed an estimated 7000 tons, the fireball it produced was dramatic. The space agency estimates the blast over Chelyabinsk occurred at about 14-20 kilometers above the Earth’s surface, and that the energy released was equivalent to a 300-kiloton explosion, Video shot by startled residents of the city of Chelyabinsk showed its streaming contrails as it arced toward the horizon just after sunrise, looking like something from a world-ending science-fiction movie.

Rough ChartUpdate 1VideoNote 1
The chart for the moment of the event shows the Moon (ruling human affairs) in Aśvinī nakṣatra which is ruled by Ketu. The Moon is in the gaṇḍānta part of the nakṣatra in the first pada indicating that a new beginning is about to come to the nation. Indications are that Russia is about to have a major political shift, perhaps in the year or two. The lord of Aśvinī nakṣatra is Ketu indicating the meteor as taught by Varāhamihira in Bṛhat Saṁhitā. Ketu conjoins the Moon and is in Kṛttikā nakṣatra which shows a big Sun – the blast which occurred following the disintegration of the meteor was as bright as the Sun! Ketu Moon conjunction shows shocking sudden changes.
ChelyabinskMeteor
Sun conjoins Mars and Mercury indicating disasters related to the earth element and this is also aspected by Rāhu and Saturn from Libra. This looks like some kind of a curse of Mercury.
Event of meteor happened in the eastern direction from Moscow indicating that this would not bode well for the kings and warrior class of the land. In modern parlance it shows that there could be far reaching political changes and that the armed forces would undergo some changes as well.
Incidentally, the ascendant of Putin is Libra, where Saturn and Rāhu are in transit. Would that indicate plans for retirement? Although an examination of his personal chart indicates otherwise, this meteor could change things, and Putin may call it a day. If Putin were to retire early, then there is no doubt that the entire political scenario would undergo a major change. After all, he is the one who stabilized Russia quickly and brought it back to the helm of word affairs.
CM_D9
The navāṁśa has an exalted Ketu in Sagittarius lagna showing that this is definitely an indication from the heavens of a great spiritual change to come in the Christian nations. Russia is the unstated capital of the orthodox ancient Christian church which is so very different from the Protestant church. We have just also heard about the resignation of the Pope Benedict. What can all this mean? Jupiter and Mercury conjoining the Moon in the 5th house is indicative of the power of the “word of god” which in India would have been translated to mean the Bhagavat Gita. We wonder in what manner this “word of God” is going to change things in Russia or Europe to be more precise.
Update
Friends from Russia have informed that the chart made by the JHora software was incorrect as the time zone was not updated for daylight saving time. Igor (miller@udm.ru) has mailed the corrected JHD Chart for the event. The chart attached in the email gives a completely changed scenario. Note that the Ascendant has changed from Pisces to Aquarius – what a relief! And secondly Navāṁśa lagna is also Libra with the Sun instead of exalted Ketu in Sagittarius.
However, that’s not the end of the story. Chandramukha Das informs that the “exact” time is 9:20’:33”. He says “The fall of the meteorite in 9:20:33; The coordinates of place of fall of a meteorite 60 E 18′ 30″ & 54 N 58′ 19″ (Time zone +6.00) Time 09:20:33”. This is slightly outside the city and again completely changes chart from Aquarius Lagna to Capricorn Lagna. In addition, the navāṁśa lagna also changes from Libra with the Sun to Virgo.
It is tough to make a call at this moment and we are awaiting some of the readings in the astronomy websites for exact details before we redraw the chart. Bear in mind that the basic reading from the Moon nakṣatra Aśvinī is not going to change as it shows the consciousness in gaṇḍānta (fear) due to sudden event (Ketu conjoining the Moon as nakṣatra lord).
However, the results will change considerably from
(a) Religion focus with the old wrong Pisces ascendant chart to
(b) Business openness and huge democratic changes with the Aquarius Lagna chart [9:20:42 with city coordinates] or
(c) Radical changes in the personal lives of people due to strong Venus focus in the Capricorn Lagna chart [9:20:33 with new coordinates] Charts for (b) and (c) are given below

Astrology Notes by Shyam Devani (sgdevani@yahoo.co.uk)

I read your recent commentary on Russia with great interest. By way of introduction, I am a markets analyst by profession in London and also a student of Gordon Brennan (gwbrennan@aol.com). While my analysis of astrological charts is at a very basis level, there are some additional observations that may be of interest. I would like to make a special mention of Vijaya Subramanian (vtry19@gmail.com) who “triggered” the thought process re: Nostradamus and the Pope.

Firstly a clip from the BBC website which is really quite clear. The meteorite was indeed described like a Sun http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-21471942
Secondly, a Quatrain written by Michel de Nostradam in the 16th century (Quatrain 41, Century 2)

La grand’ estoille par sept iours bruslera,
Nuee fera deux soleils apparoir:
Le gros mastin toute nuit hurlera,
Quand grand pontife changera de terroir.

One common translation is
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear
The big mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff will change country

Unfortunately I am not familiar with French, let alone old French. A colleague of mine however translated “mastin” as “morning” instead of mastiff (from old to modern  French, mastin would turn to matin which is “morning”) and used the word “scream” instead of “howl”. She also linked the first two lines and did not use the word “cloud”. I do not know how it could be interpreted nor what the 7 days may refer to.
There is also another Quatrain which is often discussed online (Century 6, Quatrain 6) though I think the above is more relevant.
Thirdly, patterns in financial markets lead me to believe that the price of Oil is going to rise significantly (towards some $200) over the coming months / year. While the natural focus on this issue would turn to developments in the Middle East, it may be interesting if indeed a significant change takes place in Russia, of course a huge Oil producer. Saturn in a strong place sends Oil higher? On this occasion Rāhu is also in Libra which does not sound like good news and an Oil price anywhere near $200 is most certainly bad news. My base case in terms of causality however would probably be a war (Saturn/Rāhu conjunction). At this stage, perhaps I am trying too hard to join up the “dots” between developments in Russia and Oil. Just some food for thought.
Finally, a change in Russia if/when seen may have implications for N. Korea. The last time Saturn and Rahu were together there was tension in the Korean Peninsula. I have noticed that Saturn/Rāhu conjunctions see a repeat of issues/characters playing important roles (examples include Hitler in Europe, Hussein in Iraq and Thatcher in the UK…not meaning to imply anything by grouping her with the other two but her rise and fall both came with Sa/Ra conjunctions). Could conflict (also?) erupt in the Korean peninsula/Far East?

President Obama won a second term in the White House Tuesday night, Fox News projects, overcoming concerns about the fragile economic recovery to edge out Republican nominee Mitt Romney. As races continued to be called well into the morning, it appeared that the balance of power in Washington could remain the same. Republican kept their majority in the House, while Democrats fended off a series of challenges to their majority in the Senate.

This was expected by almost all the vedic astrologers,except a handful few. You can read my predictions at http://srath.com/celebrity/barak-obama/ where we mentioned “But then by the same argument, Saturn should be giving the rājayoga of Jupiter plus its own power, and Saturn daśā starts only in July 2012. Till then Obama has to deal with a terrible Rāhu spoiling the rājayoga of Jupiter by pāpa-argalā (8th house from Jupiter) as well as pāpa-argalā on Moon (4th house). In any case we can say that the exalted Moon brings the blessings of Kṛṣṇa promising huge popularity and success in destroying enemies (Osama Bin Laden for example)”

The news reports ascribe his victory to the handling of Osama as well as the Car Industry, while we say its the powerful Saturn in Capricorn. Its vayu tattva – the power of the wind god! Well did the storm Sandy that ripped through the east coast of the US have nothing to do in helping the Americans make up their minds? It did, and thats the truth. They realised that the US is in a crisis situation and for this, Barrack Obama is their best bet.

Introduction- The houses

Before venturing into the study of the finances of a nation we should be clear about the indications of the houses in the chart.

In deva prasna (i.e. questions bearing on deities, the twelve houses signify (1) Divine presence, (2) wealth, (3) temple servants, (4) vehicles (5) image, idol, picture or symbol like an alter, (6) enemies, (7) ornaments, (8) offerings, oblations of five or sixteen kinds, (9) temple authorities, (10) festivals, (11) income and (12) expenditure. There are other opinions in this regard and the most accepted views have been reconciled and are at table-1

Table 1: House significations

House Deva praśna Rāja praśna
Coronation Rāja bhāgya National chart
1 Deity, well being & satisfaction, temple building and idol, alter, picture etc. The King The King The nation, constitution, ideals
2 Wealth, income, treasure, guardians Treasury Prince & princess Wealth, treasury, currency
3 Temple servants, Offerings (to deity) Armed forces & their chief Treasury Armed forces & their chief, servants
4 Lands, property, vehicles Vehicles, property Vehicles & followers Vehicles, property
5 Divine presence and the symbols, idols, etc. Ministers, advisers Palace Ministers, Officials wielding delegated powers
6 Pollution, enemies, thieves Enemies, thieves Wife(s) Enemies, disease
7 People, worshippers, ornaments War manoeuvre Advisers & preceptors Public
8 Offerings (by people), good or evil Life of government Subjects Donations, aid, life of nation
9 Authorities and merits Policy and attitude Policy and attitude
10 Daily ceremonies, festivals etc. Administration President, Prime minister and Administration
11 Merit, prosperity, income Gains, income Gains, income
12 Expenditure, waste, āchārya, tāntrika, priest Losses, expenditure Losses, expenditure

The nation is alive and full of living beings that constitute its living body. Unfortunately man has evolved so much as to accord an equal status to other living creatures that have accepted his leadership, but it goes without saying that the trees and animals living in the boundaries of a modern nation-state belong to it. The divine presence is represented in the hearts of all creatures and a study of the houses in deva praśna gives us an idea of defining the signification of houses for a modern nation-state.

There can be various dates and times defining the stages of evolution of an area into a nation-state. Of these, the Independence Day marks the birth of the nation. The house significations given in the last column of table-1 shall apply to such a chart.

Every other event following the declaration of independence is a part of the evolutionary process. Of these the most important event is the coronation of a king, oath taking of the chief executive (President or Prime minister) or the declaration of a dictator. The house significations given under the column titled ‘coronation’ shall apply to such charts. Questions bearing on the personal life of the head of state and his functioning should be seen from the column titled ‘Rāja bhāgya’ or fortune of the ruler.

Parāśara gives the above list of the primary natural significators. There are other secondary natural significators for some of the houses as given in the classical Jyotiṣa literature. These include Mercury (learning) for the fourth house; Saturn (disease) for the sixth house; Sun (father) for the ninth house; Sun (work), Saturn (effort) & Jupiter (success) for the tenth house.

In this paper we shall examine the finances of a few modern nation states using the houses and the Nārāyaṇa daśā as a tool to accurately time the events. In addition to the above, the regular significations of the houses and planets should be borne in mind while examining the charts.

Chart 1: Indian Independence

India was declared independent on 15 Aug 1947 along with other nations in the Indian subcontinent. Rāhu (foreign influence) is in lagna indicating that the constitution shall be largely borrowed from foreign countries and the modern nation-state shall attempt to imbibe the best from all other nations.
