In the study of astro-meteorolgoy the transit of planets with respect to Sun is the most important in forecasting rain. The classical text of Medini Jyotish like Bhavishya Phala Bhaskar has given scores of planetary combinations of good rain, scarcity of rain and famine. The transit of malefic planets ahead of Sun is consider to be an obstruction to the rain while the transit of benefic planets (Jupiter, Venus and Mercury) ahead of Sun or behind the Sun are good for the rain in general. Apart from this we also consider the ‘Sun Spot’ cycle for forecasting general weather trends. Since last two years the solar activity has been very low which is one of the reason for good rainfall in the Indian sub-continent during South-West Monsoon season. This year in 2022 the horoscope of Sun’s entry into Ardra Nakshatra and other planetary combination is indicating an excess rainfall during the South-West Monsoon season (June to September) in India and an early onset of the monsoon rains.
Horoscope of Sun entry into Ardra Nakshatra 2022
22 June 2022, 11:42 hours at Delhi
At the time of Sun’s entry into Ardra Nakshatra the day is Wednesday and Nakshatra is Revati which is very auspicious. But tithi is Krishna Navami (Rikta Tithi) and it will be around mid day (at 11 hours and 42 minutes) when Sun will enter into Ardra Nakshatra which is not considered auspicious as per classical texts. If Sun enter into Ardra Nakshatra at the night time then it is more conducive for the rains. So there will be lots of damage to the crops due to erratic rainfall this year. Noticeable point here is that there is no malefic planet ahead of the Sun so Ardra Pravesh chart for 2022 has no major yoga for obstruction in rains.
Ardra Pravesh Chart shows excess rainfall in year 2022 for India
Moon in the 100% watery sign Pisces along with Mars and Jupiter is hemmed between Saturn and Rahu on either side of it, which is a yoga for some major destruction due to erratic rains. In Navamsha Moon is in watery sign Capricorn and aspect the 8th house. The influences of 8th house in Ardra Pravesh Kundali indicate major deaths and loss of properties due to cloud burst and extremely heavy rainfalls. The overall rainfall will be higher than the normal and there shall be loss of lives due to it particularly in the months of July and August in the Northern and central parts of India. The states of Andra Pradesh and Telangana are also vulnerable for losses of lives due to flood as in Ardra Pravesh chart Moon is in Revati Nakshatra which signify these areas.
The Delhi-NCR will get monsoon rains before 1st of July which is the official date for the onset of south-west monsoon in this region.
Early onset of South-West Monsoon 2022 foreseen
As per the meteorological department of India the South-West monsoon normally enters into Kerala on the 1st of June every year. In astrology we study the position of planets in lunar horoscope to forecast the day when South-West monsoon would reach at the coastal areas of Kerala. There will be a total lunar eclipse exactly a fortnight before the official date of entry of South West Monsoon which though will not be visible in India but the planetary position at that time is indicating some major meteorological disturbances.

In Navamsha of the Total Lunar Eclipse of 16 May , Moon is in Cancer sign in the lagan in opposition with Sun and Venus in Capricorn sign.
