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
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

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.


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”.

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:

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.
