On the 28th of April when Mercury will went into retrograde motion then it become part of a very rare astrological phenomena of four planets getting retrograde simultaneously. At present Saturn and Mars are moving in retrograde motion in Scorpio sign. The Jupiter is retrograde in Leo rashi at the moment and will go into direction motion only on 9th of May only. So the period from 28th of April to 9th of May will be the time when four planets Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and Mercury will be transiting in retrograde motions.
Last time these four planets were into retrograde motion at the same time in 1980. During that year (1980) from 26th of February to 19th of March these four planets Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and Mercury were in retrogression. The superior planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars were into retrograde motion for long duration at that time just like it is during this year. In 1980 the Saturn, Mars and Jupiter were into retrogression in fiery sign Leo (Simha). The Mercury become retrograde in Aquarius then and they were all in Rahu-Ketu axis at that time.
The 1980 was bad year for natural disaster as there was a severe heat wave in USA. On 18th of May 1980 a major eruption of Mount St. Helens occurred in the sate of Washington ruled by Zodiac sign Leo. Almost 57 people were killed during this volcano eruption. Another noted event that occurred was the boycott of Moscow Olympics by the USA. The Iran and Iraq also went for a dangerous war in 1980.
The year 1980 was very significant for India. In a big political turnaround Indira Gandhi came back to power defying all odds. Indira Gandhi succeed to register a thumping victory in the general elections defeating Janata Party alliance which had earlier came to power in 1977. As a result of Indira Gandhi’s return to power the Janata Party alliance was broken into many parties. The Jana Sangha leaders Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Lal Krishna Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi formed the Bharitiya Janata Party (BJP) on April 6 1980.
Now a very important Bhrigu cycle of 36 year has completed since 1980. In these 36 year the Rahu-Ketu has completed their 2 cycles and Jupiter has completed its 3 cycles of the transit of 12 zodiacal signs. Adding to it the transit of major planets in fixed signs ( Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius and Taurus) and eclipses at the Leo-Aquarius axis are also giving an indication to major natural calamities, religious disputes and wars in coming months.
