Total Lunar Eclipse 31st Jan 2018


Before I begin mentioning about the impending lunar eclipse on 31st January, it will be prudent for me to mention something about preceding New Moon on 17th January 2018. The new moon calculated for New Delhi, India happened on a Wednesday, I am posting relevant data and the horoscope for the event below

New Moon
Date: January 17, 2018
Time: 7:48:22
Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT)
Place: 77 E 12′ 00″, 28 N 36′ 00″
New Delhi, India
Altitude: 0.00 meters

Lunar Yr-Mo: Hemalamba – Magha
Tithi: Sukla Pratipat (Su) (99.98% left)
Vedic Weekday: Wednesday (Me)
Nakshatra: Uttarashadha (Su) (53.91% left)
Yoga: Harshana (Su) (7.85% left)
Karana: Kimstughna (Ve) (99.95% left)

As with all horoscopes the Karana lord has importance to it. Venus as the Karna lord is the lord of the 5th house and the 10th house in the horoscope for the day. Venus in the lagna is flanked by Sun, Ketu and Moon in the zodiac of Capricorn. Moon and Sun occupied the Nakshatra of Uttara Shada. Venus being near Sun is combust. In the Kurma chakra the Nakshatra of Uttara Shada refers to the North West direction. We all know what infuriated people in the state of Rajasthan, the case referred to is a historical one, being resurfaced with a movie being made on the topic. Karni Sena is protecting the honor and legend of dearly loved royal from yesteryear’s who committed Sati or self immolation (combust Venus). Note that the lagna lord Saturn (in the Nakshatra of Mula) is in the 12th house along with Mercury, mercury happens to be the lord of the 6th and 9th houses.

This chart when studied along with Indian Independence chart speaks volumes. The India Independence chart, also attached has Taurus or Vrishabh lagna. For Taurus Lagna, the zodiac of Capricorn also happens to be the Badhaka sign. The Government had its sights elsewhere who was busy digging up yet another historical past and the whole episode of Karni Sena playing havoc while taking ordinary citizens to ransom. Rahu which is transiting thru the zodiac of Cancer and the Nakshatra of Ashlesha is partly to be blamed for miscommunication. Rahu transiting thru Ashlesha, a nakshatra presided over by a Dakini who can utter absolute unpleasant communication is to be blamed. Mercury as the lord of second house and 5th house in India Independence chart represents the financial loss and the kids whose bus was pelted by stones which generated another hot debate over TV channels.

Total Lunar Eclipse

Given the above backdrop, let us now examine the impending Total Lunar Eclipse scheduled on 31st January 2018, the chart and data for New Delhi, India is posted below

Date: January 31, 2018
Time: 18:59:50
Time Zone: 5:30:00 (East of GMT)
Place: 77 E 12′ 00″, 28 N 36′ 00″

The Lunar Eclipse happens to be in the zodiac of Cancer and in the Nakshatra of Ashlesha. The Karana lord is Moon and is in its own zodiac sign. During an eclipse, the luminaries are thought to be swallowed by Rahu at the beginning of the eclipse and exited by Ketu at the end of the eclipse. The chart calculated is for the highest point of eclipse. The eclipse happens in the Nakshatra of Ashlesha, which according to Kurma Chakra, represents the South East Direction. Sun, Ketu and Venus will now be in the Nakshatra of Saravana, representing the North West part of India. The lagna in the eclipse chart Is Leo whose lord Sun is in the 6th house. This time around both Venus and Mercury are combust, but, Mercury will be with greatest declination. The lagna being Leo, the Badhaka sign of that of Aries, whose Lord is in the 4th house. It is more of internal turmoil and matters related to home soil.

Eclipse chart when studied along with India’s Independence Chart, speaks of trouble before the eclipse reaches totality. But, soon after totality, a beautiful Gaja Kesari (though weak by Jupiter being marana karaka sthana) will help heal hearts. Media persons, those in power need to be careful not to use harsh language, damage once done, will be difficult to be undone.

What about anger which refuses to die down in north west? The issue will still continue to invite heated debates, even cost to life and property all over India. There will be the proverbial lull before the actual storm when Mars transits into Sagittarius. The eclipse happens in the second pada of Ashesha, it is Artha Trikona being affected and occurs at 17deg 32 minutes in Cancer. Mars will transit into Sagittarius and on 7th March 2018. Trouble for India can be expected around 3rd April 2018.

Budget for the financial year will be presented in February, this will be another sore spot with the Government dishing out much needed concessions or taking away most of it for impending major elections next year. The relief maybe delayed will mid-year and dished out around Diwali. What else can be expected?? Will there be natural calamities? Well, dangers of natural calamities, especially accidents cannot be discounted out. ONLY Lord Brahma knows what is actually in store
