In Mundane astrology (Medini Jyotish) the changing sign of major planets, retrograde motion, direction motion, combustion of planets is studied for meteorological disturbances, political changes and for forecasting rise-fall of commodities prices. The ancient astrology text like Bhavishya Phala Bhaskar, Varsha Prabodh, Bhriat Samhita etc. are full of such astrological combinations. I had given a forecast for a very cold and rainy winter season ahead in my article “Jupiter in Scorpio and forecasting winter season 2018-2019” published on this blog on 8 November. My astrological predictions about an extremely cold winter season ahead were also published in the December 2018 issue of Express Start Teller Magazine and also in an article on the Hindi News Paper website Navbharat Times. As per the news reports the winter season in December 2018 is the coldest since 2015 as per the IMD (Indian Meteorological Department). Astrologically some winter rains in the next few days is likely to bring down the temperature and also the hazard of air pollution in the North Indian cities specially in the Delhi-NCR.
The entry of Mars in watery sign Pisces on the 23rd of December will bring rains in the Northern states of India and extremely heavy snowfall in the hilly areas of Northern Himalayas. Mars will remain in the watery sign Pisces from the 23rd of December 2018 to 5 February 2019. This period will give more than normal snow falls in the hilly region of North India and some good rains in the plains. Jupiter is in Scorpio in the sign of Mars so there is a good Rashi exchange between the two planets.

See the full Moon horoscope for 22nd of December; Mars here is about the come into Pisces sign. As per the classics of Mundane astrology Mars gives its results in the first Dreshkkan of the sign. So in the next 10-12 days we can expect good winter rains and snowfall. Rahu in watery sign Cancer, Jupiter-Mercury conjoined in Scorpio and Mars in another watery trine Pisces is excellent yoga for rainfall. In the last winter season the month of January 2018 was the driest in terms of snowfall in the Himalayan states like Kashmir, Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh. But this year there will be good will be amount of snow fall in the Himalayan states resulting high flow of tourist and good harvest of apple which is crucial for the economy of this region. In the Northern states of Punjab, Harayana, Madhya Pradesh and some parts of Vidarbh in Maharashatra there will be loss of crops due to hailstorms and rains in the last week of December and first week of January. The transit of Mars in Pisces will give unusually high winter rains which can damage the crops of wheat which is ready for the harvest in North and Central parts of country. Venus behind Jupiter in transit is a yoga for winter rains and hailstorms as per ‘Shukar-Chaar-Adhayaa’ of Bhriat Samhita. Now when the Jupiter is transiting in Scorpio behind Sun in Sagittarius this also going to effect much in giving unusual rains in winter season.
The transit of Mars in Pisces is consider to bring down the prices of commodities. Pisces is the 11th house of the foundation chart of India which is of Taurus ascendant. The exchange between the Jupiter and Mars is an exchange of 11th and 7th lords in the Taurus lagna foundation chart of India. The Jupiter in Scorpio and Mars in Pisces is also good for Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi as from his Scorpio lagna this is an exchange of lagna and 5th houses lords. So in next 40 days the government of India will take some important steps to curb the inflation and there will be good rise in the stock market due to the purchases of domestic investors.
