The south-west monsoon 2019 is likely to be very erratic due to the conjunction of Saturn and Ketu in Sagittarius in transit. Apart from this the transiting Mars is ahead of Sun which is a classical yoga in astro-meteorology for delay in rainfall. I have given forecast about possible delay in south-west monsoon, which may reach Kerala during 3rd of June to 6th of June, a month back. On the 11th of April my article ” Sapta Nadi Chakra and Forecasting Summer Season Trends 2019″ was posted on this blog in which prediction about extremely hot June and delay in monsoon rains was given. The scarcity of water in many parts of the country specially in Maharashatra, Gujarat and Karnataka will be a trouble for the government during June month.
Saturn-Ketu conjunction will hold its sway during the entire south-west monsoon season (from June to September) this year. Apart from this combination the transit of Mars ahead of Sun till the mid of July month and a partial lunar eclipse falling on the 16th of July are indicating an erratic monsoon season. The Ardra Pravesh horoscope and lunar charts indicate that this year south-west monsoon will give around 90% of rains.
Above normal temperature in June 2019 and drought like situation
Mars transiting ahead of Sun is a classical yoga for less than average rainfall. The classical text on astro-meteorology like Mayur Chitram and Bhavishya Phala Bhaskar have given this yoga stating that “ when Mars is ahead of Sun in transit there is less rainfall and prices of food grains goes high”. It is only on the 16th of July with the entry of Sun into Cancer this combination will break. The conjunction of Sun and Mars in the watery sign Cancer from the 16th of July to 8th of August will give excessive rains and flood in many parts then.
But before this the month of June and the first half of July month will be extremely dry and hot. The above normal temperature in the Northern and Western parts of the India will break the records of decades. In the southern states of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana etc. there will get less than normal rain in the month of June. The monsoon will reach late in these states. In the central parts of India especially in Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh monsoon will be deficient till 16th of July which will be bad for the farmers of these two states. The Gemini sign signifying West Bengal and Bangladesh will be afflicted with the transit of Mars and the aspect of Saturn on it. Thus the worst affected areas would be West Bengal and Bangladesh this year which may come under draught like situation.
The Aries sign signifies the North Eastern states. The ruler of Aries is Mars which transiting into Gemini a dry sign shows less than average rainfall till the 22nd of June in the North-Eastern states of India.
Sun enter’s into Taurus and predictions for Kharif crops 2019
15 May 2019, 11:01 hours at Delhi
Now let us analysis the horoscope of Sun’s entry into Taurus which as per Bhriat Samhita’s ‘Sasya-Jataka-Adhaya’ ( chapter 39) tells us about the possible harvest of Kharif crops i.e. winter harvest. The Kharif crops are sown during the pre-monsoon and monsoon season. They are harvested during the coming winter season. The planetary position at the time of Sun’s entry into Taurus gives indication about the possible harvest of Kharif (winter season) crops. This year at the time of Sun’s entry into Taurus malefic planets Mars and Ketu are in the 2nd house from Sun which do not get any good aspect from benefic planets but instead they are in mutual aspect with Ketu and Saturn. So this yoga can give delay in the sowing of Kharif crops due to deficient pre-monsoon rains in the southern states.
New Moon chart
3 June 2019, 15:31 hours at Delhi
In the full Moon horoscope of 3rd June the luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in Taurus in opposition with Jupiter retrograde in watery sign Scorpio. This will initiate some light rain from the 3rd of June in the coastal areas of Kerala. When the Moon will move into Cancer on the 6th of June more rain will come in Kerala and also in some of the North Eastern states. Mars by then would have come into Punarvasu Nakshatra. But Mars will be transiting ahead of Sun till the mid of July this year. The Saturn and Ketu, which are another dry planets, will be in opposition to the dry Mars showing less than average rainfall till the 16th of July this year.
Ardra Pravesh horoscope 2019
22 Jun 2019, 17:19 hours at Delhi
Now we will study the horoscope cast for the time of Sun’s entry into Ardra Nakshatra. This chart is analysis for judging the amount of rain and its distribution during the south-west monsoon rains.
- In the Ardra Pravesh horoscope of Sun the rising sign is Scorpio where Jupiter is placed. The presence of watery planets Jupiter, Moon and Venus in Kendra ensure that despite some delay in south-west monsoon rains there will be at least 90% of rains of the LPA (Long Period Average).
- The lagna lord Mars and Moon sign lord Saturn both are in dry signs. See the Mars placed in Gemini in the 8th house with Sun and Rahu. Saturn, which is the lord of Moon sign, is with dry planet Ketu in fiery sign Sagittarius. This shows dryness and above normal temperature at the time of Ardra Pravesh of Sun i.e. around 22nd of June.
- Sun is sandwiched between Venus and Mercury which as per Bhavishya Phala Bhaskar it is a yoga for obstruction in rains.
- Normally south-west monsoon reaches Mumbai and Kolkata around 10th of June but this year it will reach late in these cities giving troubles to its inhabitants from abnormal heat and humid weather.
- On the night of 22nd of June Mars will enter into watery sign Cancer which will give some rains in the southern states and also in the central parts of India. Some rains will also come in North-Eastern states, Kolkata and Mumbai around 22nd to 25th of June.
- On the 3rd and 4th of July Moon will be transiting from Cancer along with Mars and Mercury which will bring monsoon clouds in Delhi, Haryana and Western UP.
- Some more rains is likely around 7th of July when Mercury will become retrograde in watery sign Cancer. This will give rains in many parts of the country giving some relief to the draught stricken areas.
Partial Lunar Eclipse of 17 July and onset of heavy rainfall activity
Full Moon Chart
17 July 2019, 03:08 hours at Delhi
On the night of 16/17 of July a partial Lunar Eclipse will be visible in the Indian sub-continent. This eclipse will change the course of south-monsoon rains with the onset of heavy rainfall activity in many parts of the country. For the purpose of mundane astrology the horoscope of eclipses are cast for the time when the longitudes of Sun and Moon are exactly equal. So in case of a solar eclipse we take New Moon chart and in case of lunar eclipse the chart of Full Moon is taken into consideration. In the horoscope of Full Moon given above the rising sign is Taurus which is same as of the foundation chart of India. This partial lunar eclipse of 17th of July is going to be very critical for India.
In weather conditions it will drastically change the pattern and distribution of rainfall activity. The northern and central parts of India will get very heavy rainfall in the next 5-6 days of this lunar eclipse. See the position of Moon in Sagittarius sign in Uttarashadha Nakshatra. As per Koorma Chakra the Uttarashadha Nakshatra signifies northern states specially U.P. , Haryana, Punjab etc. A strong earthquake in the northern parts of Indian and in Pakistan is expected within 15 days of this lunar eclipse in the second fortnight of July 2019. The eclipse falling in the 8th house of mass deaths also indicates loss of lives and properties due to heavy rainfall and flash-floods. Some kind of cloud-burst and flash flood activity may give lots of destruction in the region of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh in the second fortnight of July.
Mercury going direct on 1st of August will bring more rain
Mercury will go into direct motion in the last degrees of Gemini sign on the 1st of August. Later it will move into Cancer on the 2nd of August. So around this time in the first week of August the rainfall activity will increase considerable especially in the North and Eastern Parts of the country. The major rivers of these areas like Ganga, Chambal, Betwa, Yamuna, Gomati, Ghaghra, Gandak, Kosi and Brahmaputra will be flooded with water then. Mars changing sign from Cancer to Leo on the 8th of August will give some blistering rain in many parts of the country. The Jupiter coming into direction motion on the 11th of August in sign Scorpio will give some good rain in the Delhi-NCR region. The western states like Gujarat and Maharashtra will also get good rainfall during the first fortnight of August.
Venus and Sun moving into Leo will give rain around 17th of August On the 17th of August Sun will enter into Leo sign and a day before Venus will also entry into Leo which is a dry sign. This will give some rains in the eastern parts of the country but it will not be very sufficient. Leo is a dry sign and Venus transiting in it means that there will be some reduction in the amount of rainfall. Mars will also enter into Leo on the 8th of August so a cluster of Sun, Mars and Venus in Leo will reduce the rainfall activity in the northern states after the 17th of August.
The 5 planet conjunction on 30th of August and more erratic rain possible
30 August 2019, 16:07 hours at Delhi
A five planet conjunction of Sun, Moon, Mars, Venus and Mercury will occur on the 30th of August this year in the Leo sign which signifies the east direction. There could be extremely heavy rainfall activity in the North-Eastern states of the country and also in Bihar and Jharkhand then. Around the New Moon of 30th of August some heavy flood and earthquake will bring some destruction in the eastern parts of the country.
In the last week of August and first fortnight of September there will be very heavy rainfall activity in Odisha, Chhattisgarh, and Bengal etc. In the months of August and September there will be above normal rainfall but in the months of June and July there will be less than average rainfall activity. The south-west monsoon will be delayed in most parts of the country this year and it will give less than average rain till 16th of July. Later a heavy rainfall activity period from 16th of July to 16th of August will make-up with the deficient rain in the early phase of south-west monsoon season. But this erratic rainfall activity and unequal distribution of rains will bring lots of losses of crops for the farmers as they will not be able to plan the seeds properly for Kharif crops. This year the south-west monsoon will give around 90% of rains for the Long period average (LPA).
