Bṛhaspati Kavacha Mantra

In jyotiṣa there is a saying that when Jupiter protects there is none that can destroy. Jupiter brings in the great mantra powers into the fifth bhāva and dharma into the ninth bhāva. He is the ‘jīva graha’ responsible for bringing life into the various bodies.

ISIS Caliphate

From the ISIS Lagna chart (previous article), it was obvious that they are trying to establish a kingdom as the lagneśa Mercury is in 9th bhāva (independent) and is also a ātmakāraka (king). Since the ārūḍha is in Libra with Rāhu and Saturn, the manifestation of this ārūḍha shall take place during their period – Saturn daśā Rāhu antardaśā (Apr, 2013 – Mar, 2016). After their initial huge victories, the formation of a Caliphate was declared.

ISIS Lagna

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), better known as Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a Salafi jihadist militant group that follows an Islamic fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam. The group is also known as Ad-Dawlah Al-Islāmiyah fī ‘l-ʿIrāq wa-sh-Shām (DAESH) and has been informally active since 1999 in collusion with various other jihadi outfits. However, the entire terror took a completely new turn when they formed ISIS formally on 9 Apr, 2013 with a clear objective of forming a Caliphate.

Age of Śaktī

Moon represents Ambikā who manifests as Durgā and all the śaktī of the various devatā. She is the bindu which gives life to every akṣara. If the akṣara represent the deva having the power to enlighten, their very existence and identity depends on the soma-rasa (milk of kindness) they receive from the Moon-mother. The bindu, by nature is simply red, like the blood. And like the blood of the mother, it creates every creature and gods as well.

Predicting Rain

Forecasting rainfall has been one of the primary functions of Jyotish. In the days of yore when the economy was primarily agricultural, planning depended on accurately forecasting rainfall and crop.
