In these extremely erratic times where we are being attacked by a global pandemic, people are living in fear and wanting to make sense of what is happening and when it will end and a few people look towards ancient sciences and philosophies- one such ideaology is Vedic Astrology.
Many people believe in this - Jyotisha Shastra(Vedic Astrology) and a lot of people are afraid of Vedic Astrology, or in doubt of what the predictions really mean and even if they are true or not - It is a correct question - ow can one mortal predict the future of someone accurately and not do the same for themselves?
The field of Jyotisha deals with ascertaining time, particularly forecasting auspicious day and time for Vedic rituals and gradually it came to be used for people wanting to know the right time to do certain activities like purchasing a home, starting a new business, getting married etc. A good astrologer puts you in touch with the inner voice you haveand encourages you to explore it, understand it and work with it to enrich your life by accessing your own intuitive wisdom to reach the dreams you have been afraid to pursue.
Astrology utilizes the aspects of Rasis (Zodiacs), Grahas(Planets), Nakshatras (Lunar mansions), Dashas(Planetary time periods), Gochras (transits) and Yogas (planetary combinations), Bhavas (houses) and Drishti (Aspects)
Now One of the most exciting tools of Vedic Astrology is the use of “planetary periods” of influence. The periods are incredibly predictive and by looking to that planet in the chart – its sign, house, aspects, house lord, conjunctions, and strength – one can tell very specifically what a person can expect to experience during that planetary period. Each major period -Mahadasha is then broken down into sub-periods Antardasha. Coming to the situation at hand - shaken financial markets to international travel restrictions, markets shut down, countries closing their doors to travellers, and grocery store aisles left barren, this deadly virus is yet to be contained - here’s what the astrology prediction is - The planet Rahu mainly rules and signifies any kind of epidemic, while Ketu is the significator of Virus and bacteria. So the planet Rahu and Ketu play a vital role in causing such virus related diseases. If we step back in history and check, all major epidemics like Flu and Influenza have always been triggered by the nodal planets Rahu and Ketu.
As they are invisible planets they make it hard to detect and find proper solution or vaccine for the virus. Also such epidemics last for a longer period of time. When these planets get closer to Saturn or Jupiter they are known to cause such outbreak and pandemic. The combination of Ketu, Jupiter and Saturn in Sagittarius has triggered the virus outbreak in December 2019.
The respite will come in stages but things will seem to be out of control for quite some time.The first step would be the end of March, with some understanding of the Virus and then a big shift by Mid of April 2020 and then by September of 2020 things would settle a down.
Vedic Astrology is a tool, but to use it as a predictive analysis and not depend upon one’s own effort is not the right approach. Do your best, and have faith in the creator.
