Any act does not come into existence just like that. There are factors behind that making it happen. These factors are thought, word and action which we see from 5th (thought), 2nd (word ) and 10th (action) houses in the natal horoscope. A similar principle works in mundane astrology also. The thought is manifest in the skies and the word and action are manifest in the people on the ground. As such terror attacks follow some specific combination of planetary rules, the analysis of which is becoming relevant nowadays. I call this as investigative astrology and am keeping track of events from 1993 Mumbai blasts onwards. There are certain repeated astrological combinations which I have classified from different angles. Based on that I thought I can give some clues on the cause of the attack and the intentions of the attackers.
There is a view that 13th and 26th seem to be the preferred dates of the attackers. The attack on the Indian parliament happened on 13-12-2001. In 2003 an attack happened in Mumbai on March 13th. In 2008, Jaipur bore the brunt of a terror attack on May 13th and Delhi on September 13th. But if we look at the dates, nearly half the terror attacks in India had happened in the second half of the month. If you check the wiki article on list of terror attacks, 18 out of 43 had happened in the second half of the month. 26th has a particular presence in natural calamities such as earth quakes and tsumanis also. It is because they most often come on specific thithis (lunar days) in specific months. Actually the basis lies in lunar or solar days rather than the dates of the Gregorian calendar.
Similarly if we check the day of terror attack, yesterday's attack is rare as most terror attacks have happened on week ends or week- beginnings – presumably targeting more people. As far as India is concerned most terror attacks had happened on Thursdays! Saturday and Tuesday also are in the list. Similarly the ruling planet of the star of the day when the terror has stricken has been Jupiter on most occasions, followed by Saturn and the nodes. Yesterdays's terror struck on the star of Ketu!.
In India's Vimshoththari dasa system, Venus and Ketu connection had been there on most occasions of terror. Venus dasa saw the most terror attacks. The Ketu antar dasa in Venus Maha dasa had more number of terror attacks. The current Sun dasa must be a peaceful one as Sun is in the 4th house in the bhava chart, which also happens to be its own house. Sun in the star of 2nd and 5th lord Mercury will not wreck havoc for large part of its dasa. The current bhukthi lord Rahu is in the star of Sun, making it a mixed bag of events. Rahu being the sub cuspal lord of 2nd, 6th and 10th houses and positioned in the house of Venus, has helped in keeping the rulers under check and can even help in recovery of black money from abroad.
The Home minister made a statement that India was relatively calm in the first half of this year. It is because of this and the general planetary combinations.
For Indian conditions, the foremost requisite for a terror-free atmosphere is Jupiter which must be free of affliction and also positioned in benefic signs. Yet another requisite is the absence of affliction to a sensitive point called antiscion of the Sun. This point keeps moving with the movement of the Sun. Fortunately for the last six months, the antiscion of the sun was free of affliction. That is why even though a few instances of blasts were reported in the first half of this year, the casualties and the intensity of blasts have been very less. But the time is changing for a brief period now. From 26th July onwards, the antisicon of the Sun is going to be afflicted by the malefics which will be there for the next 3 months.
Yesterday's blast was a little different from the terror attacks of the past, because the most important Jupiter was relatively safe and unafflicted. Let me give my check list before I proceed.
For a terror attack to happen (in Indian conditions – I say this based on the Indian natal chart of Independence) the following must be present:-
- · Moon must be afflicted (for human sufferings to happen.) In the absence of this one clause even if other clauses were to be present, the terror attack will fail or causalties will be nil or very low.
- · Jupiter must be afflicted.
- · Antiscion of the Sun must be afflicted.
- · Terror time lagna lord and 8th lord must be afflicted.
- · The lagna lord and 8th lord and or the 8th house must fall in ayudha, sarpa or fiery drekkanas.
- · The 22nd drekkana and 64th navamsa lords must be afflicted.
- · Brighu bindu must be afflicted or the planetary lord of the Brighu bindu degree must be afflicted.
- · Affliction to shunya rasi for the thithi in which the terror occurs
- · Malefics in Mrithyu bhaga and /or malefics transiting Rohini. (additional feature and not always possible)
- · The malefics such as Saturn, Mars and the nodes causing the above afflictions besides being connected among themselves. In worst terror attacks, they will be in 6-8 axis or 2-12 axis with each other.
In all the terror attacks in the past, one can see all the above being present. (There are justifications for the above factors to be related to a terror attack. I am not going into those details as it will take many articles to explain.) Based on these factors it is possible to interpret the cause of terror which in most occasions was to pose a challenge to the Government, as terror attacks are modern day versions of war on government. The modes operandi is to the attack and terrorize the innocent people with an aim to make them lose confidence in the government. There are other reasons also which I have classified in the Indian scenario, but the most common cause is this.
But on only one occasion in the past the cause of attack was to wreck personal vengeance. On 23rd November 2007, about 6 blasts occurred in the court premises of Lucknow, Varanasi and Faziabad. The attacks were a retaliation for the arrest of terrorists and for the reason that no lawyers came forward to defend them. Indian Muhajideen claimed responsibility for that attack. In fact use of ammonium nitrate and IED were seen in the past in the attacks by Indian Mujahideen and a Bangladeshi outfit, Harkat-ul-jehad al islam.
But the terror time chart then and yesterday did not have an afflicted Jupiter.
Infact yesterday Jupiter's 9th aspect was there on the terror time lagna and the moon. From this I deduce that the real cause of the attack is somewhere local or personal – a retaliatory act of vengeance or may be linked to the underworld elements who were involved in J.Dey's murder. This can also be interpreted that someone is testing the preparedness of the people and the police and also the efficacy of themselves in perpetrating the crime. Because this particular position of Jupiter occurred as an exception on only occasion when settling scores was the cause (as stated above). So I think the local factors must also be thoroughly investigated.
