Saturn has entered into Capricorn sign in retrograde motion on the 12th of July. It will become direct on the 23rd of October this year and later will again move into Aquarius sign on the 17th of January 2023. Saturn is in ‘Dhanishta’ Nakshatra at present which is the Janma Nakshatra of Ukraine who is facing a major war with Russia since 24th of February this year when Saturn has entered into this Nakshatra. Now the retrograde motion of Saturn into Capricorn, which is the Moon sign of Ukraine, is likely to accelerate conflict in the Eastern Europe which will intensify the energy crisis in the world. This will increase the problem of inflation and unemployment due to disturbance in supply chain of the market in coming months. In India we can expect some major economic reforms, growth in economy , religious disputes, national mourning, scandals, public protests and some political instability particularly when Mars will enter into Taurus sign after 10th of August this year. Mars will stay for about 5 months in Taurus due to its retrograde motion which will be very dangerous for India particularly during mid of August 2022 to middle of March 2023.
In the horoscope of Hindu New year 2022 or Chaitra Shukla Pratipada the rising sign is Gemini with luminaries (Sun and Moon) at the 10th house along with 2nd lord (finance) Moon are receiving the bad aspect of Saturn from the 8th house. The 2nd house of economy and finances is also getting the aspect hard malefics of Mars and Saturn from the 8th house which explain the situation of inflation in the country at present. As per RBI assessment rate of retail inflation is likely to remain above 6% till the end of 2022. But some economist are expecting it to be around 8% which could be true considering the planetary position in the Hindu New Year horoscope. We don’t anticipate any major relief from inflation or price rise until April 2023 as per our astrological calculations.
Why so many religious disputes in year 2022 ?
An unusual serious of violence’s occurred on the day of Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti in the months of April and March respectively. More than a dozen incidents of communal violence, stone pelting and vandalizing were reported across more than 10 states of the country in the months of April and May this year. In the Hindu New Year chart of 2022 the combination of 9th lord Saturn along with 6th lord Mars is in the 8th house of controversies and destruction. In Navamsha of the Hindu New Year horoscope luminaries (Sun and Moon) are in the 9th house and the 9th lord Jupiter is in the 3rd house in the axis of Rahu-Ketu which shows Hindu-Muslim religious disputes. The trend is likely to continue in coming months intermittently.
Nupur Sharma and Gyanvapi Masjid dispute
On the 26th of May 2022 Nupur Sharma, now the former BJP spokesperson, participated in a television debate where she had made some controversial remarks about ‘Prophet Muhammad’ during a television debate over ‘Gyanvapi Masjid’ dispute. Her controversial comments were become viral over social media especially in the Arab world. This attracted wide spread criticism from Arab countries which put ruling BJP under pressure to expel her from the party for 6 years. But unfortunately, the matter didn’t resolve here and many violent protests occurred in the following days.
Nupur Sharma’s correct birth details are not available but her Moon chart (Chandra Kundali) shows the period of troubles and health concerns for her in coming months. Her Moon is in Taurus which is afflicted with the conjunction of Mars and is also in mutual aspect with retrograde Saturn. Vimshottari dasha running in her Chandra Kundali is Jupiter-Saturn till the end of 2023. Saturn is under mutual aspect with Mars makes ‘Unmmad Yoga’ which don’t show sound state of mind and wisdom. Jupiter is debilitated and get the bad aspect of retrograde Saturn is also inauspicious. So there could be mental tensions and serious health concerns for her during August 2022 to March 2023 when transiting Mars would be in Taurus over her natal Moon.
The Gyanvapi Masjid dispute is now in the court after a video-recorded survey of the mosque in which it is said to have revealed a ‘Shivlingam’ (a symbol of Hindu deity Shiva) found inside the complex. The issue is bound to create tensions in the society during the transit of Saturn from Capricorn which is the 9th house (religion) of India’s foundation chart.
Uniform Civil Code and Other Major Laws foreseen
In the foundation horoscope of India Moon maha dasha and Mercury anter dasha is running from 10 July 2021 to 10 December 2022. Mercury is involve in the Nakshatra exchange with 10th and 11th lord Saturn. The 2nd and 5th lord Mercury in Nakshatra exchange with 9th and 11th lord Saturn is indicating some major upheavals in the economic policy of the country. The BJP government may interduces some new economic reforms which would involve disinvestment of large public sector undertakings. The Uniform Civil Code is also likely to come as the transiting Saturn from the 9th house (law and higher judiciary) in Capricorn indicates. On the 5th of August 2022 BJP may bring this law of Uniform Civil Code as we have witnessed earlier the ruling party has taken important decisions on this day like in 2019 on 5th of August they abrogated Article 370 from Jammu & Kashmir and then on 5th of August 2020 the Ayodhya Ram Mandir Bhoomi Pujan made this day historical for all Indians.
Apart from this we can expect some new laws which would bring judicial reforms in the country. The retrograde motion of Saturn in the 9th house of the foundation chart of India indicate some major laws which will affect country’s judicial system. The ruling BJP government may bring a law to make mediation agreements legally binding and the process of mediation compulsory before filing a civil suit. This will bring down the burden on courts which are struggling with more than 45 million pending cases (4.5 crore) giving delay in justice to the common man.
Destruction from heavy rain foreseen
The horoscope of Sun’s entry into Cancer shows massive loss of lives and properties due to excessive rainfall. Sun in Cancer, which is a watery sign, would be getting aspects of Jupiter, Mars and Saturn. The aspect of Jupiter from Pisces on the Sun is a combination of excessive rainfall which will bring destructive flood in many parts of the country during middle of July to middle of August this year. The aspects of Mars and Saturn on the Sun and also on the 8th house is a yoga for destruction of lives and properties across many states of the country especially in North and West direction.
I had earlier forecasted a year of excess rain during June to September season of South-West monsoon in my article “Forecasting Trends for the South-West Monsoon in India in 2022“.
