On the night of 16th/17th of July a partial lunar eclipse will be visible in many parts of Asia, Africa, Europe, South-America and Australia. In India this lunar eclipse will be visible from the mid night of 16th/17th of July from 01:30 am to 04:30 am in most parts of the country except some regions of Arunachal Pradesh. From the astrological point of view this lunar eclipse will be bad for Pakistan, India, middle east and some south-american nations. At the time of this lunar eclipse Moon will be in Uttara-Ashada Nakshatra in the last Navamsha of Sagittarius sign and in the first Navamsha of Capricorn. So this eclipse will influence the war sign Sagittarius and the watery sign Capricorn. The first half of Capricorn is a watery sign whereas the second half of Capricorn is consider an earthy element.
Bad effects of 16th/17th of July Lunar Eclipse on India
At the time of this lunar eclipse the Taurus sign is rising which is the Janma lagna of the foundation horoscope of India. So this eclipse will specifically be very bad for India among all the countries where it is visible.
As you can see the planetary position at the time of this lunar eclipse Moon, Ketu and Saturn are in the 8th house from Taurus (Vrishabha) which is the lagna of the foundation chart of India. The 8th house is the house of national mourning, scandals and political crisis. There will not be any surprise if some big leaders of ruling government at the center may suffer from untimely deaths or unfortunate incidents. Venus is transiting from Gemini which is the weakest Rashi in the Ashtakavarga of India with only 19 points. Venus, Sun and Rahu in the Gemini is not good as it may give political and sex scandals.
As per Acharya Varahamihira an eclipse in Sagittarius sign gives trouble to ministers, rulers of the country, doctors, traders, army man and specially those living in Punjab region ( modern Punjab of both India and Pakistan). At the time of eclipse the Mars is in the 3rd house and the 3rd lord Moon is in the 8th house showing some disturbances in border areas for India.
Very Heavy Rains and Flood Foreseen after Lunar Eclipse of 16/17 July 2019
The lunar eclipse of 16/17 July is falling on the Ashadi Poornima. Moon will be in Makar Rashi during the last part of this eclipse which will bring extremely heavy rains and flood in many parts of the country. The North-India and Central India will suffer badly from flood during 17th of July to 5th of August 2019. I had also mention these forecast in my article on South West Monsoon rains 2019. This will give troubles to the people living in major cities of North and Central parts of India. But it will bring some relief for the farmers who are struggling from drought and delay in the sowing of Kharif crops. Mars is in Cancer sign with Mercury under the aspect of Jupiter from Scorpio is showing the possibilities of extremely heavy rainfall till 5th of August.
Prices of Gold and Silver Will rise
Jupiter and Sun are the Karaka for gold. Venus and Moon signifies the silver. Whenever these planets get afflicted by malefic planets then the prices of these precious metals may increase. At the time of lunar eclipse Jupiter is retrograde and Sun is with Rahu getting the aspect by Saturn. Venus is also with Rahu and Moon is with Saturn. This indicate a sharp rise in the price of gold and silver in next few days.
Danger of a strong Earthquake after 16th/17th of July Lunar Eclipse
At the time of a solar or lunar eclipse if luminaries are in airy or earthy Rashi and Navamsha then there is some danger of a strong earthquake. Major planets Jupiter, Saturn and Mars getting retrograde may also bring such earthquakes which could be more than 7 at rector scale giving damage to lives and properties. Such conditions are not present at the time of this lunar eclipse of 16/17 July. Moon will be in Makar Rashi and Makar Navamsha in the ending portion of this lunar eclipse. It gives danger of damage from an earthquake and/or cloud burst. Since Moon is in Uttara-Ashadha so the North-West direction may get affect with an earthquake and cloud burst as per the Koorma Chakra. Punjab province of India and Pakistan and Himachal Pradesh could get adversely affected with these natural calamities within 15 days of this lunar eclipse.
At the time of this eclipse the Sun-Rahu are in Gemini which signifies America. The earlier solar eclipse of 2 July was visible in south-America where the earthquake sensitive areas like Mexico, Peru, Ecuador can come under the danger of a strong earthquake influencing millions of peoples. Jupiter and Saturn are retrograde at the time of this eclipse. Mars is debilitated and Mercury is also retrograde. Jupiter and Saturn are in 22 degrees south declination so the southern parts of the world like south-america are under the danger from an earthquake after this lunar eclipse of 16th/17th of July.
