Eclipses And The Theory Of Astrological Inevitability : What They Foretell ?

Eclipses  are caused by the Nodes Rahu and Ketu when they overshadow the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon. There are 2 types of Eclipses Solar and Lunar. In Case of Solar Eclipse Moon comes between the Sun and the Earth and as such hides the disc of Sun. In the Case of Lunar Eclipse the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon and hence the shadow of Earth falls on Moon. Eclipses have great importance in the Mundane Astrology  as they represent the peak of the energy discharged and their periods of influence over considerable time. In the Case of Lunar Eclipse the effects are immediately visible but in the case of Solar Eclipse some months elapse before the effects with magnitude are visible. The Effects spread over a long period of time in proportion of the duration of the Eclipses. Solar Eclipse effects last for years  as the Eclipse period is in hours in duration , whereas in the Lunar Eclipse the effects will last for months as the Eclipse duration is in hours.

According to Varahamihira when the Eclipses take place and the luminaries are set or Eclipsed there will be danger to autumnal crops and Danger to the Kings. On the other hand f the Eclipses are Total and the Eclipse orbit has aspect of  Malefic there would be famine and pestilence all over the Country  and those Countries are influenced most where it is visible . The effects in the fixed sign are felt for a long time where as in the movable and the cardinal signs for a short period. In the Common signs the effects are felt with interruptions.

Varahamihira has described at length the results of the Eclipses. As per him two eclipses in a month , one Solar and one Lunar, Kings will be destroyed as revolt of their army, and there would be bloody battles

In the year 2018 the Eclipses will take place in the Watery and the Earthy Cancer and Capricorn respectively

The Effects in the sign Capricorn will be more Venomous then the effects in the Sign Cancer .

In the Year 2018 there will be total 5 Eclipses , 3 Solar and 2 Lunar 


The Details of the Eclipses are as follows 

 Date                                           Type                                         Eclipse Point                                Countries Visible

31st Jan. 2018                    Total Lunar Eclipse       17.31 Aslesha (Cancer)     North/East Europe, Asia , Australia

North/East Africa, North America , South East India as Per Korma Chakra

North/West South America, Pacific

Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Arctic, Antarctica

15th Feb. 2018                   Partial Solar Eclipse              3.01 degree Dhanishta             South America, Pacific, Atlantic, Antarctica, North West India

13th July 2018                   Partial Solar Eclipse              26.35 degree Punarvasu         South In Australia, Pacific, Indian Ocean, East Part of India

27-28th July 2018       Total Lunar Eclipse       10.38 degree Sravana          Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa,  North /South America

Pacific, Atlantic, Indian Ocean, Antarctica, North West Part of India as per Koorma Chakra

11th August 2018              Partial Solar Eclipse    24.34 degree Asleasha     North/East Europe, North/ West Asia, North America

                                                                                                                                                                Atlantic, Arctic, South East India as Per Korma Chakra

Hence from the Above we can come to the conclusion that the 2 Lunar Eclipses on the 31st Jan. 2018 and the 27-28th July 2018 are important in the year 2018. The Lunar Eclipse in the sign Capricorn and with Malefic Mars influence on the Eclipse is a dreaded one in the Earthy sign. The Influence will be on the fishes, Ministers and their Families, Men of Low class, those who are old, those who live by weapons. In a nut shell there will be drought , famines, Earthquakes, Political Tug of War, Mining disasters. Natural and Unnatural calamities including man-made disasters

Here I am referring to the Book of “The Nehru Dynasty “by K N Rao Astrological Inevitability

The Theory

Eclipses falling on the 1/7 axis of the Ascendant, Sun and Moon close to their Degrees may prove fatal if the following Parameters are fulfilled 

Dasha of a Major Planet and Sub dasha of a Planet who is malefic and has the potentiality to kill, what can happen is—-

The Native may fall from power

If this Point is the 10th house , the native may fall and if the life span  has come to its terminal point , die

If the Major or Sub Period happens to be that of Rahu-Ketu, then such a Fall is inevitable .

The Eclipse Nakshatra Falling in the 3rd, 5th, 7th  from the natal Moon nakshatra could be most venomous provided they are also activating the other parameters as mentioned above , for others the effect may not be phenomenal. Those Countries and Natives who have a Rajyoga in the Chart formed by the Eclipses may not be bad for them provided the Eclipses are taking place in good houses .


For India the Nakshatra is Shravana for Capricorn Lagna and as per the Foundation chart it is Pushya

Dr. Raman has explained in an easier way in the Book “Man and Mission”

Every Country has been allotted a Sign in the Natural Zodiac .

India it is Capricorn, Hence the Eclipses falling in the Sign Capricorn and Cancer can be detrimental for India specially the 31st Jan. 2018 and the 27-28th July 2018, specially when mars activates the Eclipse Point in the Transit .

USA the sign Gemini and Mars and Saturn Ingress in the 7th house from Gemini after 7th March can Prove detrimental for the Country  and then the Eclipses in the sign Capricorn the 8th house could prove to be most venomous  as per the Lunar Eclipses on the 31st Jan. and the 27-28th July 2018and when mars activates the Eclipse point .

Noting the Vimshottari dasha as mentioned above

Finally Mars the Ammunition dump reaches the Eclipse point will trigger the event with dimension

These are the basic Parameters for Predicting the Natural, Unnatural and Man-Made Disasters 

USSR Aquarius, Aries For England, Cancer or Libra for China

Recollecting historically in the year 1962 5th Feb. 5.40 hrs , have a look at the chart below 

Mars and Saturn Degree conjunct and influencing the Solar Eclipse  and Mars with Ketu in the sign Capricorn. 8 Planets were in the Sign Capricorn the darkest sign of the Zodiac. Capricorn is also the West Asia allotted Region since the days of Varahamihira

For USA it is the 8th house  mass death, disease, feverish preparation for a possible war with China, North Korea and hence agony

Capricorn is the 12th house of USSR.

Such Planetary combinations were occurring on the 20th Oct. 1962 when we had the Indo -China War . The Point here to be noted is the 31st Jan. 2018 Total Lunar Eclipse is occurring over the natal Sun and Moon in the 7th house from the Capricorn sign and in the 3rd house of Boarder of the Foundation chart of the Country and both are most sensitive houses . Train accidents could take place and tension at the Boarder and foreign relation may be strained and war like situations can sprout specially when Mars ignites the eclipse point could prove an ammunition dump

Let me also include the celestial drama of the Planets in the year 2018

6th Jan. 2018 Mercury joins Sagitarius a Fiery sign after it was fallen in Scorpio

Venus ingress in the sign Capricorn on the 13th Jan. 2018

Mars Ingress takes place in Scorpio on the 17th Jan. 2018 at 05.12 hrs. very close to the New Moon on the 17th Jan. 2018 at 7.47 hrs.

The Year starts with a Total Lunar Eclipse on the 31st Jan. 2018

Mars Ingress in the Sign Sagitarius takes place on the 7th March 2018 18.27 hrs. and Mars and Saturn in the Sign Sagitarius degree conjunct at 15 .00 degrees in the nakshatra of  P Shadha on the 3rd April 2018, they will be in the 5th Navamsha of Leo could trigger the events related to Explosions, Bombing, Escalation of the Brawl between the Countries specially in the Korean Peninsula, Indo-China Relations, Gulf War . ISIS and Terrorism will also take a higher dimension. Saturn will be on the brink of the Completion of the 90 year cycle from the year 1929, hence Stock Markets could take a Reversal and suffer specially when the North Node is Adverse , since Rahu has the Capacity to turn the tables upside down. Read My article “59 Years Back Roman God Saturn Was Fallen In Scorpio on the 2nd June 1958: Unfolded ?” link…ne-1958-unfolded/ dated  11th June 2017  and the Stock Market is Behaving exactly as predicted and Parallel to the time when Saturn was fallen in Scorpio in June 1958 and then when it went back in Sagitarius and Mars and Saturn were in Conjunction in Jan. 1960 the Market started to take a Reversal. Hence there is Possibility of the Stock Market Reversal when Mars and Saturn join in Sagitarius and then around the  25th March -May 2019  the 90 year cycle of Saturn  may be completed it so seems  and hence a Deep depression then. At this Point Saturn and Ketu will be conjunct in Sagitarius 

Saturn -Mars Conjunction

This Conjunction is considered most inauspicious. Even Jahangir-the Mughal King of India was afraid of this conjunction in the Transit. It is mentioned in the Jahangir Nama : “Since the Conjunction of Mars and Saturn, the 2 inauspicious planets had occurred, I ordered Gold, Silver and other metals and all sorts of grains to be given in aims to the poor and needy and distributed throughout the realm”

Battle of Haldighat 1576 : In the battle Rana Pratap was defeated by Akbar Mars and Saturn were conjunct in the Sign Sagitarius

21.3.1739 Nadir Shah’s invasion and General Massacare at Delhi. It was a fearful day in the history of India , Mars and Saturn were in the Dual sign Gemini. It has been observed that the Conjunction of these planets in the Dual sign is most venomous. The whole population of Delhi was put on sword. On this day Nadir Shah mounted the roof of the Golden Mosque in the Chandi Chowk-Delhi and Ordered the general massacare(Katle aam).  This Dark Day has become proverbial in the history of India and Nadir Shah stands for a symbol of  cruelty, anarchy and an incarnation  of devil himself. On this Day the main Features in the Transit were as follows .

1. The Conjunction of the Mars and Saturn in the dual sign in the 6th house from the Traditional sign of Capricorn  Lagna of India as Taken By Varahamihira

2. The Darkest sign Capricorn of the Zodiac is afflicted by  Ketu and Rahu in the sign Cancer 

3. Moon afflicted by Rahu

4.  Sun aspected by Saturn

5. Mars aspecting Ketu by 8th aspect in Capricorn

In the Present Context and the year 2018 The Brawl between Trump and Kim the  President of the North Korea Kim Tubby Tyrant may prove alike it so seems , due to the similar Planetary positions during the total Lunar Eclipse on the 27-28th July 2018 and specially after Mars ingress in the Sign Sagitarius on the 7th March 2018. The Indo-China brawl, Gulf war, ISIS Terrorism may also sprout with dimension

Just for reference  the Blue Start Operation took place in the Golden Temple  when Mars and Saturn were conjunct in the Sign Libra.

Attack On America 9/11 also took place when Mars and Ketu were Conjunct in the Sign Sagitarius on the 11th Sept. 2001 and Saturn in the 6.8 axis from it in the sign  Taurus. Mars and Ketu were almost Degree conjunct at 7-9 degrees and in the same Navasha and Rahu was in the Venomous state with Moon 

Coup In Bangladesh on the 15th August 1975. Mars and Ketu were conjunct in the signTaurus and in the same Navamsha  and were at 3.5 degrees and 6 degrees 

Please refer to my Article “Roman God Saturn, Red Planet Mars, South Node Ketu In 2018-2019: What They Have Up Their Sleeves ?” link…up-their-sleeves/ dated 23rd Dec. 2017. Mars the Red Planet has been instrumental in Triggering the War since connected to Ketu in all the cases discussed in this article may it was WW1, WW2, Korean War, Indo-China War or the Gulf War . Even at the time of the great Depression on the 24th Oct. 1929 Mars was Conjunct Ketu Degree-wise at 19 degrees in the Sign Libra . In the Present Context Mars will be Degree conjunct with Ketu  at 11.5 degrees in the sign Capricorn on the 20th July 2018.This Conjunction will take place in the 3rd House of the North Korea Foundation chart and Squaring the Natal Mars and Ketu Degree Conjunct in the sign Libra at 10.5 degrees is the most Venomous Transit for a War like situation, Coup and Down Fall of the North Korean Regime 

Jupiter will go in Retrogression on the 9th March 2018 at 29.07 degrees till 10th July 2018 and at 19.14 degrees 

Saturn will go in Retrogression on the 18th April at 15 degrees till 6th sept. 2018 at 8.26 degrees

Mars will go in retrogression on the 26th June 2018 in the sign Capricorn at 15 degrees  till 27th August 2018 at 4.30 degrees  this Transit will be most Crucial , since the Eclipse point of the 27-28th July 2018 will be activated again and again 

Month of June Saturn and Sun opposition, Crime associated with Women will be on the Cards and could be the most Trouble some Period of the year in the Politics.

July 2018  will be worst o induce Political Tug of Wars , Provocations  and most Venomous and Chaotic conditions 

The Solar Eclipse of the 11th August 2018 will have noteable effects on India , since The Eclipse will be in the 7th house from the Sign Capricorn and the 3rd House of the Foundation chart and over the 5 Planets in the sign Cancer , The Natal Sun is Very close to the Eclipse Point and has aspects of Retrograde Mars , may ignite and prove ammunition dump by Mars  and indicates Explosions, Bombing, Violence, Train Accidents, Terrorism, and Earthquake with Magnitude 

Jupiter and Venus Conjunction in the Sign Libra after 1st Sept. 2018 till 11th Oct 2018 also indicates Bloodshed as mentioned By the Great Astrologer Hardeo Sharma Shastri Trivedi in the Classic Vypar Ratna and the Prices of Gold may also surge 

Mars stay in the sign Capricorn from the 3rd May to 6th Nov. 2018 will be most Venomous activating the Eclipse point again and again and these 187 days will be crucial for the world as already pointed out by me in all my articles 

The New Moon Kundali of the 20th Sept. 2017 in which all the Planets are in the shadow of the Nodes , Mars and Saturn is most Venomous and till Mars leaves the Sign Capricorn there will be untoward happening hence in a Nut shell till 6th Nov. 2018 will be most Venomous though in Dec. 2018 also the conjunction of Sun and Saturn will further aggravate the Political Turmoil in the Country  till 27th Dec. 2018 since both Sun and Saturn will also be in the Leo Navamsha 

Last not the least but the most important Parameter the Eclipse Points Activation  specially of the 2 Lunar Eclipses and the Solar Eclipse of the 11th August are Crucial points and will be activated on the following Dates which could Prove most Venomous for the Globe and the Financial Markets 

Total Lunar Eclipse of the 31st Jan. 2017 Eclipse point at  17.31 degrees in the sign Capricorn will be activated on the 7th-8th April 2018, although after Mars crosses 16.40 degrees on the 6th April and till 12th April 2018 will be crucial and then again when Mars goes in the Sign Capricorn and aspects the Cancer sign at 17.31 degrees on the 14th Oct. 2018, it would be very close to the Eclipse point on the 26th June 2018 at 15.06 degrees when it goes in retrogression

Partial Solar Eclipse on the 15th Feb. 2018  and Eclipse point at 3.01 degrees in Capricorn will be activated on the 9th and the 10th of May 2018

 Partial Solar Eclipse on the 13th July 2018 and Eclipse point 26.35 degrees in Cancer will be activated on the 25th April 2018 and again when it goes Capricorn and aspects the sign on the 31st Oct 2018

Total Lunar Eclipse on the 27th-28th July 2018 and the Eclipse point of 10.38 degrees will be activated on the 25th July 2018 just days before the Eclipse and on the 28th July Mars will be at 9.49 degrees very close to the Eclipse point which will be activated again on the 26th-27th Sept. 2018

Partial Solar Eclipse on the 11th August 2018 and the Eclipse point at 24.34 degrees will be activated on the 27th-28th Oct. 2018

The Following Countries may bear the burnt of the Eclipses 

England, Yemen, Maldives, Lebanon, Mexico, Iran, Syria, Peru, Venezuela, Germany, Egypt, India, Iraq, Italy, Japan, USA, Israel, Malaysia, Korean Peninsula , China

Hence the above Dates are ammunition dump and can prove most Venomous specially where the Eclipses are visible , the other countries will also be influenced but at a lesser level. The Dates are also sensitive for the Stock Markets specially those one when the North node is also in Venomous condition and has the Capacity to turn the Tables upside down. The Saturn is also on the completion of the 90 year cycle in 2018-2019 till May 2019.

Stock Markets touch a new High till 7th March 2018 and Crypto Currencies may be Volatile and may even touch a low till 7th March 2018 . In the Present Scenario Rahu is adverse hence Stock Market will surge till 26th Jan. 2018 and Till this Date the Crypto currencies will dip
