It was in the 6th century AD when great Indian astrologer and astronomer Varahamihira had discuss about Sun Spots in his monumental work ‘Brihat Samhita’. Varahamihira had used the word ‘Tamas-Keelak’ for the spots appearing on Sun and explained them in length in his work Brihat Samhita’s chapter number 3 ‘Aditya-Chaar-Adhayaa’ (Transit of Sun). Interestingly Indian astrologer’s knew about Sun Spots and its effects on weather when the westerners didn’t even had learned if the Earth revolves around the Sun or not. The current solar minimum along with the coming solar eclipse of 26th of December is indicating a very cold and rainy winter season ahead. It has been observed that during the years of low Sun Spot activity Europe and USA experience rainy and damp winter season. The low Sun Spot activity can also bring very misty, rainy and cold winter season in the Indian sub-continent this time.

We should not make predictions only on the basis of occurring of low or higher Sun Spot activity or Eclipses for say. These are few factors among many other in the astro-meteorology of Hindu’s which is an important party of ‘Medini Jyotish’ i.e. Mundane Astrology.
