Mars will be transiting ahead of the Sun during almost entire South-West monsoon season (June to September) this year. As per classical text of astro-meteorology this is a yoga for an erratic rainfall along with some obstruction in the rain in between. Although till 20th of July there shall be good rainfalls as Mars will soon enter into Cancer on the 4th of June and will remain in this ‘full watery sign’ for almost one and half month. But afterwards there are possibilities of dry periods from the 20th of July onward in many parts of the country. Saturn transiting through Shravana Nakshatra in retrograde motion and Rahu’s transit from Rohini are other two indications of very erratic rainfall with some long dry periods in between and flood in some parts of the country . All these yoga’s combine are forecasting a very erratic South-West monsoon 2021 season with uneven distribution of rains as per both time and space.
The rainfall could be around 90% to 95% of the long period average with lots of abnormal behaviour like concentrated heavy rain fall on small number of days at some areas and then long period of dryness which will give lots of troubles to the farmers during the sowing of seeds in the Kharif season (monsoon crops).

Sun enters into Taurus horoscope
14 May 2021, 23:37 hours at Delhi
Sun, Rahu and Mercury are know to bring cyclone storms. In the solar ingress horoscope of Taurus Sun, Rahu, Mercury and Venus are conjoined. In Navamsha chart Mercury, Jupiter, Sun and Mars are in watery which indicate good rainfall. This bring lots of unseasonal rains in the second fortnight of May and temperature is also below normal for the season. But these astro-meteorological disturbances are not a good indicator for the south-west monsoon and also for the country. If the lunar month of ‘Jyeshtha’, which is from 27th of May to 24th of June, does not get high temperature then south-west monsoon is likely to bring less rain in North and central parts of the country in its last phase i.e. during August and September months.
Why Sun’s entry into Taurus horoscope is so important ?
In Medini Jyotish (mundane astrology) there is an ancient tradition of forecasting harvest on the basis of solar ingress charts. The ‘kharif’ or Monsoon crops are cultivated around May-June in India, depending upon region, and are harvested during last week of September or October. As per Brihat Samhita, a 5th century AD classical text of Medini Jyotish, the horoscope cast at the time of Sun’s entry into Taurus (Vrishabha) sign gives indications about the harvest of crops which are sown during monsoon season. Sun enters into Taurus sign every year in the mid of May which is the time when many South-Indian states are under pre-monsoon rains. Rice, Maize and Cotton are major Kharif crops. In the South Indian states these crops are sown during May while in Western and Central India during June when they gets rain. In North the sowing season comes in early July.
As per Brihat Samhita’s ‘Sashya Jataka Adhyay’ chapter 39, if there are benefic planets like Jupiter, Venus and Mercury in Kendra i.e. square of Sun at the time of its entry into Taurus sign, then the Kharif crops grows rapidly after sowing. Similarly the text says that if Sun has benefic planets on its either side or Sun gets the aspect of benefic planets then also the Kharif harvest will be good for the farmers. However, if there are malefic planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu or Ketu in Kendra (square) position from Sun or they are associated with Sun then the crops may get damaged in some areas due to erratic rainfall and pests. Since last two years India has received bountiful of rains during South-West monsoon season and farmers has enjoyed good harvest. But this year there could be some erratic rainfall as malefic planet Mars is ahead of Sun in the solar ingress of Taurus chart.
Sun has enter into Taurus on 14th of May this year at 23:37 hours IST (Indian Standard Time). The horoscope for Sun’s entry into Taurus is cast by taking place as Delhi which is capital of India. As we can see here Sun is associated with two benefic planets which are Mercury and Venus. But it is also in conjunction with a malefic Rahu. So there shall be some erratic rainfall this year. Jupiter, the most auspicious planet, is in the 10th house from Sun which is a good Kendra (square) position. So despite some erratic rainfall the Kharif harvest shall be very good. The South-West monsoon will strike the coastal areas of Kerala around 1st of June and it will give good rainfall during 3rd of June to 20th of July as Mars would then be transiting in Cancer sign which is a 100% watery Rashi. There shall be bountiful of rains in Southern States like Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra and Telangana. In Maharashtra and parts of central India there will be good rains in the last fortnight of June and in early July. So farmers in these areas will be able to do the sowing of seeds on time. But in Northern states there could be some troubles to the farmers as after 20th of July Mars will move into a dry sign Leo and it will be ahead of Sun in transit. So some deficient rains in Northern states like UP, Bihar, Punjab, and Haryana etc. may give some troubles to the farmers. Overall the production during the Kharif season will be good as at the time of Sun’s entry into Taurus there are benefic planets Mercury, Venus and Jupiter in Kendra from it.
Horoscope of Sun’s entry into Ardra Nakshtra in 2021
Now see the horoscope of Sun’s entry into Ardra Nakshatra which is given here. Gemini lagna is rising with Sun and Venus placed in it and Jupiter giving aspect to it. Jupiter’s aspect on the lagna, Sun and Moon will ensure that the rainfall will be normal i.e. around 90% to 95% of the long period average. But Mars ahead of Sun is a classical combination of erratic behaviour of monsoon rains as per Bhavishya Phala Bhaskar. In Navamsha of the Ardra Pravesh chart Sun and Jupiter are in the lagan in mutual aspect with Moon, Saturn and Venus which also indicate some erratic rainfalls.
Mars and Saturn at the 1/7 axis during the entire month of June will give lots of destruction to crops because of some erratic rainfall. In the coastal areas there will be more than normal rainfall while in the plains there will be below average rains. The South-West monsoon will get delayed in reaching North and Western part of the country as the transit of retrograde Saturn in Capricorn shows deficient rainfall in these areas. The total cumulative rain fall in the South and Eastern part of the country will be more as compare to the North and Western parts. In the month of June and July there will be decent rainfall but in August and September there could be less than normal rainfall due to Mars transit from Leo and Virgo signs.
