Jupiter is in retrogression from August 30th to December 25th this year. In mundane astrology, retrogression, conjunction, opposition and entry into another sign bear an impact on the land, the people and the way people behave. Jupiter's current retrogression has particular influence for India.
This important planet which stands for Justice and dharmic sense is in Mruthyu bhaga (degree of death) in Libra – a sign that denotes Justice. This sign happens to be the 6th house from lagna and 4th house from the moon sign of India's Independence chart. From Capricorn, the mundane sign for India, this happens to be the 10th house. An important planet getting weakened in a house crucial for domestic affairs (4th), government / democracy (10th) and health and enmity among inmates (6th) periodically throws up strains in these areas. Particularly whenever Jupiter goes retrograde in a benefic sign or in its own sign or in its sign of exaltation, we find arrogance, anarchy and adharma ruling the roost in India.
Currently Jupiter is in retrogression in a benefic sign. Needless to say what this implies at the current juncture. Right from 30th August, something or the other is being reported – all of which have some similarity. If two or three instances bear similarity, we will consider them as coincidences. But when many instances and almost all the acts of the Congress Government look similar, we call them as a planned design.
I mentioned this August 30th date in one of my comments when Anna Hazare movement was at its peak. That was when Annaji was calling people to go for Jail bharo agitation from 30th August onwards if the Govt did not concede to his demands. That date being the time from which Jupiter would go vakri , I was apprehensive of some drastic and insensitive action on the part of the Govt resulting in escalation of tension in the country. Jupiter is currently in the 10th house from the Moon dign (Cancer) of India and this position of Jupiter does give headaches to the Govt. We found that happen until 30th August. But when such a Jupiter goes into Vakram, the Govt gets brute power and starts attacking others. I think as an ordinary but law abiding citizen of this country I have the 'privilege' to say that the Govt (Congress ) has lifted its veil and is exhibiting the true face of it!
This started after 30th August – is a point to note from astrological angle. The charges against each member of the Anna team, against Ram Dev, the volte face of Govt agencies in the 2G case, the clean chit to Maran, selective use of CBI against opposition parties and the states where Opposition rules – all these show a breach of Dharma whenever Jupiter goes vakram in a benefic sign which happens to be the 10th house from the moon sign!
The Govt has found a sudden strength now and is shooting at all directions unmindful of the fact that WE, the PEOPLE are watching it. The Congress may even have a game plan to stifle our voices at the EVMs, or else I don't think any sane Govt would go about slapping charges on the very people who were backed up by the general Public from across India. Things are happening in such a way that India is becoming a fit example to show how Democracy can be stifled in the name of Democracy and by the very people who owe their position and power to that Democracy.
How long this will last? Is there a way that this will end?
This trend will slow down after Saturn enters Libra and checkmates Jupiter positioned in the opposite sign. Saturn exalts in Libra at a time when Sun (signifying Govt) goes into debility. The overpowering effect of Saturn will be felt from 1st November onwards. Though Jupiter ends its retrogression on 25th December, this entry of Saturn on November 1st will put brakes in its ways. Until then the Govt will go haywire hitting at its opponents.
In the immediate future, I want to watch Manmohan Singh. His birth details as I have are 26th September 1932, 2-00 PM, Jhelum. If this is correct , his best times are over by 12th September now. In the Indian Annual Tajaka chart also, there are many indicators for trouble for the Govt. The belligerent attitude of the Govt can not continue after 25th December.
As of today everything depends on the Judiciary. It is hoped that the retro Jupiter does not play truant with them.
