The south-west monsoon season (1 June to 30 September) has ended with a surplus rainfall for the continuous second year. This year also i had made a forecast for the bountiful rain just like it was in year 2019 particularly after the solar eclipse of 21 June which had fallen on the same day when Sun entered into Ardra Nakshtra. My forecast about excess rainfall during this year’s south-west monsoon season was also published in the Express Star Teller magazine’s May issue. Now when the south-west monsoon clouds are withdrawing from North India they are likely to bring good rainfall in the state of Bihar, Jharkhand, Chhattisgarh, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana on their way back. This retreating monsoon blows from land to the sea gives rainfall mainly in southern states like Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and some parts of Karnataka and Telangana. As per my astrological observations this year North East monsoon will give excess rainfall in December though it may give below normal rain in October and average rainfall in November month. Before you read my analysis on it please go through this article posted on 16 May 2020 about South-West Monsoon rainfall.
As per the news reports this year the rainfall was 109% of the long period average. The August was the most productive month with 127% rainfall while in June there was less than normal rainfall.
In astro-meteorology the position of Sun with respect to other planets is very important in the matter of forecasting rains. The benefic planets Jupiter, Venus and Mercury ahead of Sun bring bountiful of rains during monsoon season be it south-west monsoon or north-east monsoon. The malefic planets like Mars, Saturn, Rahu and Ketu ahead of Sun bring obstructions and deficiency in rainfalls. There are many other principals given in the classical text Bhavishya Phala Bhaskar which is the best book available on the subject of astro-meteorology.
Ketu may bring some delay in North-East Monsoon
This year from the month of October Ketu will be ahead of Sun which may bring some delay in the onset of North-East monsoon resulting in less than normal rains in the October month in southern peninsular.
Tula Samkranti or Sun’s entry into Libra horoscope
17 October 2020, 07:06 hours at Delhi
In the month of October Ketu in Scorpio will be ahead of Sun which may bring little obstructions in the rains. At the time of Sun’s entry into Libra the aspect of Mars and Saturn on the Sun also confirm this deficiency in rains. Venus is in dry sign Leo and Mercury is retrograde with Sun showing high wind speed but less rain during the month of October. The wind flow from north India towards the south will also bring locust attack in the interior parts of many south-Indian states. India is facing worst locust attack since last 26 years from the months of March-April this year. The entry of North East monsoon will bring millions of locust to invade southern states of India in the last fortnight of October this year which will trouble the farmers. Ketu is in Scorpio, which is a sign signifying an insect, that can increase the breeding of locust in very high numbers. Scorpio or Vrischik is ‘Keeta Rashi’ in which when some malefic planets transit the problem of pestilence appears. It has also been observed that major planets transiting from the Nakshatra of Rahu and Ketu also bring major troubles from pestilence.
Since Ketu specifically signify ‘Sookshma Jeeva’ or insects so the current trouble of locust is likely to increase and continue for about next 1.5 years until Ketu move into Libra in March 2022.
Decent rainfall in November month Foreseen in Tamil Nadu
In the month of November the rainfall will be better when Mercury become direct on the 3rd day. Mars will be transiting in watery sign Pisces and it will be in mutual aspect with Venus in Virgo which is decent Yoga for rainfall. This will give some rains in the interiors of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Southern Karnataka. On the 14th of November Mars will become direct which will bring more rainfall in the southern peninsular.
New Moon horoscope
15 November 2020, 10:37 hours at Delhi
In the horoscope of New Moon of 15th of November the conjunction of Sun, Mercury and Moon is giving promise of rains in the coastal areas of southern states. In the Navamsha of this chart Saturn, Mercury and Mars are in watery sign Capricorn. Sun and Moon are in airy sign Gemini in mutual aspect with Jupiter which can bring a cyclone or wind storm in the second fortnight of November month. There will be very good rainfalls in the city of Chennai at that time.
Jupiter moving into Capricorn will bring excess rainfall in December during North-East Monsoon season
On the 20th of November Jupiter will move into Capricorn which as per astro-meteorology is a watery sign. The entry of Jupiter into Capricorn will brings rains in the interior parts of Tamil Nadu and some other southern states. On the Full Moon of 30th of November Sun will be in Scorpio along with Mercury and Ketu in the mutual aspect with Moon in Taurus which promises very good rainfall in the month of December. Normally the month of December do not give much rainfall in the North East monsoon season. But in year 2020 there will be excess rainfall in the month of December. There will also be a severe cyclone in the month of December which will bring lots of destruction by rainfall in southern states of India.
Total Solar Eclipse
14 December 2020, 21:47 hours at Delhi
At the time of solar eclipse of 14th of December all the planets will be in watery sign Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces respectively. In Scorpio Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Ketu are indicating extremely heavy rains immediately after this total solar eclipse. In Navamsha chart Sun and Moon are in watery Navamsha Pisces. Jupiter, Saturn, Ketu, Mercury and Mars are in airy Navamsha Aquarius. There will be heavy rainfall in the southern peninsular because of a cyclone which might hit Maharashtra or Gujarat as at the time of Total Solar Eclipse Sun is in Jyeshtha Nakshtra which signify West direction. This cyclone may create such big metrological disturbances which will affect the entire Indian sub continent with very sharp decline in temperature.
The rainfall activity in the North East monsoon season will continue even after the month of December. Thus there may be excess rainfall during the North East monsoon season. Although in the month of October there will be less than normal rainfall and November will also bring only normal rainfall activity. But in December month extremely heavy rainfall activity will surprise the meteorologist. There could be losses of crops because of excess rainfall activity in the month of December during the North East monsoon season this year.
