The Triple Eclipse is making news nowadays with a spate of predictions connected to it.
I wish to state the following in this connection.
In fact 5 to 7 eclipses happen every year globally. The so-called bad effects of 3 eclipses in 30 days are applicable only if they are all sighted in the same place. As far as India is concerned not all the 3 are seen in India. Only July 22nd solar eclipse is seen in parts of India.
Triple eclipses were sighted at the time of Mahabharata war. But then the triple eclipse alone did not cause the war and destruction at that time. There were other indications too, terrestrially, in the atmosphere and celestially. The indication then was of the nature of a massive meteor -hit that affected the entire globe. The Deluge was global and not localised at Dwaraka or in Tamilnadu, south off Kanyakumari. There is a finding that a meteor hit somewhere near Poland about 5,000 years ago. That coincides with post Mahabharata deluge.
When the war started, there were other omens witnessed in the atmosphere and in the terrestrial life. Such things happen at the closure of an Epoch (Yuga antham).
The triple eclipse of the coming days is not of that type. As far as India is concerned, not all the 3 are seen.
But I am worried about the planetary combination at the time of eclipses. Mars will be transiting Rohini during the eclipse period. The transit of malefics such as Mars and Saturn is called as Rohini Sakata yoga. When Saturn was transiting Rohini in Dasaratha's times, a famine ensued. King Dasaratha (Rama's father) prayed to Saturn with Sani sthuthi which pacified Saturn. Saturn changed the course and did not cut across Rohini. This is an important information for space scientists to check whether Saturn deviated from its course in the past near Rohini (Aldebaran) in Taurus.
Rohini is the star of growth and prosperity. It is responsible for growth dependant on water. When Rohini is free of afflictions, crops grow well. When malefics cross her, crops fail. Rohini is described as looking dull if cut across by malefics. In many places in Ramayana the suffering of Sita is compared to Rohini that was made dull by either Saturn or Mars or by the nodes. The afflciton of Rohini comes with famines, hunger and destruction.
Writing on this Rohini sakata bheda, Varahamihira says, "When Saturn, Mars or a comet cuts the wain of Rohini, what shall I say, alas! For, the whole world will perish, being plunged in the ocean of misery." 'Men with their children will suffer from hunger and weapons"
The last time Saturn cut across Rohini, WTC was attacked. Indian Parliament was ambushed and J&K Assembly was attacked. In the previous sojourn of Saturn through Rohini, World war II was on.
Earlier when Mars cut into Rohini, atom bombs shattered Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
Presently Saturn is not transiting Rohini but glancing at her by 10th aspect from the fiery sign of Leo while mars will be transiting Rohini between 17th July to 6th August.
Mars and Saturn will be in mutual aspects too, tormenting Rohini in the process. Mercury will be caught in strategic location during this period showing terror attacks on vehicles.
One month ago, the Air France Plane crashed. Mars in Aries and Saturn in Leo cause destruction by accidental fire. A month later - that is, just a day ago another plane crashed with Mars in fiery Krittika and Saturn in Leo. The LPG train derailment in Italy also is attributed to this combination. In the last month alone, many instances of destruction caused by fire were witnessed. Whenever this combination of Mars and Saturn occurs, it happens.
A month from now, we can not rule out a disaster - but of a man made kind.
The combination that is coming up after 17th July (even that day itself has a foul combination of planets) shows man-made disasters. Bombs, weapons and fire power will cause hardship to innocent people. When Mercury joins Saturn in Leo from July 30th onwards, the escalation in troubles will be more. Mercury, the kaarak for transport, if placed in the 3rd from Natural 3rd house (Gemini) and is afflicted by Mars and Saturn, there will be destruction through / of vehicles. There is a likelihood that some underground train is targeted. I am worried about this period only.
Since Rohini is the reigning star of Kashmir, I am worried about J & K in India. People are going to pay for the current Indian policy in Kashmir.
Globally, Ireland, Iran, Poland, Asia Minor, Cyprus, France, Italy, Philadelphia, Chicago will have to beef up their security while India has to be vigilant in Mumbai.
The more disturbing period is the lunar eclipse just before New Year 2010 starts. The planetary combination at that time is also not good, showing a vulnerability for disasters in 2010. Saturn in Virgo and the nodes in Sagittarius and Gemini will see a fall in food production globally and rise in prices. Traders will have a tough time ahead with this combination.
