Day – 6 of Garbottam year 2015-16, Swati day.

 The 6th day of Garbottam of 2015-2016 began after 5 PM on 3rd January 2016 and ended after 5 PM on 4th January 2016.

The 195th day effect in my place of observation will be from 10PM in the night of 13th July to midnight of 14th July 2016.

The corresponding fortnight will be from 30th August to 13th September 2016.

This year there occurs a peculiar correlation between this 6th day and its impact day after 195 days. Both today and the impact day will have the Moon transiting Swati star.

Moon in Swati must be watched for weather conditions. Normally when Moon is passing through Swati and the subsequent three stars (Vishaka, Anusha and Jyeshta), it will be windy and there may even be dust storms. During Garbottam days, Moon passing these 4 days must be windy for good rainfall to occur in the rainy season.

From 4th January to 8th January 2016, Moon will be in these 4 stars. There must be good winds during these days (till 8th January) to ensure good rainfall.

This year the 195th impact day for the 6th day of Garbottam also happens to have Moon in Swati. This occurs in Aani month or Ashada month in lunar calendar. The rule of windiness for Moon in Swati changes only for Ashada Swati. Let it be windy on all the Swati days in a year. But it must be companied by drizzle on Ashada Swati day!

If it rains on any Swati day, there will be deficit rainfall. But it must drizzle on Ashada Swati  (Swati in Aani month).  Ashada Swati is responsible for the formation of what is called Swati Mutthu (Swati pearl) which is rare and precious. On the day of Ashada Swati, the raindrop blown by wind and dust will be captured by oysters and becomes pearl. The 195th impact day for 6th day of Garbottam (3rd to 4th January 2016) is Ashada Swati. Therefore the Garbottam of this day must be conducive for drizzle accompanied by winds on the night of 13th and on the 14th of July 2016.

In the corresponding fortnight also, there occurs an important date for observation. The corresponding fortnight occurs in the month of AavaNi. When Moon is transiting Moola star in AavaNi the sky must be overcast such that the sun light must be obstructed strongly. This will be mentioned in the Panchangam as “AavaNi Moolam”. On AavaNi Moolam day, the day must be dark with dense clouds hiding the sun all through the day. This date is 11th September 2016.

So these two days, 13-14th July (Ashada Swati) and 11th September (AavaNi Moolam) must be watched for these specific features for good rainfall later that date. 

The 6th day of Garbottam trend is not all that encouraging for AavaNi Moolam though Ashada Swati may manifest to a lesser degree. The Swati day of 6th day of Garbottam was not windy. The wind was gentle and rare. Only between 10 AM and 1 PM, some windiness was felt. At that time only, clouds were seen in the sky. Otherwise the clouds were thinly seen near the horizon and scorched by the sun.

Some clouds were looking like aquatic forms but they quickly dissipated. At sunset, the sky was mildly reddish and the sun was hiding behind the clouds at sunset. From the colour of the clouds, it appeared that sun was mildly reddish.

The observation of the 5 factors for day- 6 are as follows:

(1) Wind:- Mild breeze at twilights. Some winds from 10 AM to 1 PM. Otherwise still air only.
Result:- This is less than average factor for rainfall. Being a Swati day, winds must have been more stronger.

(2) Rain:- Nil.
Result:- Does not indicate rains in the said period.

(3) Lightening:- Nil.
Result:-  Does not indicate rains in the said period.

(4) Thunder:- Nil.
Result:- Does not indicate rains in the said period.

(5) Clouds:- Cloudless for most part. Some aquatic animal shaped clouds were sighted around noon. Thin clouds were there in the horizon. By evening twilight long streaks of clouds were seen in the direction of sunset.

3-some features:-

(1) Terrestrial :- Behaviour of birds was normal.

(2) Atmospheric :- Of the 12 features noted in my blog on Garbottam, (1) only thin clouds, some of them looking like crocodiles were sighted around noon. (2) Clouds were scorched by bright sunlight. (3) very faint red glow at sunset. (4) very mild breeze at twilights.

(3) Planetary:- (1) Stars appeared as pale discs. (2) Except Jupiter all the other planets were in Southern declinations. Planets in northern declinations are desirable for good rainfall. (3) Moon had crossed Mars and was in Swati.   


(1) By the 195th day impact, there will be less than average effect on Ashada Swati on 13th night and 14th July 2016. Few droplets of rain may be felt around midnight of 13th July.

(2) The corresponding period between 30th August and 13th September is likely to be dry in my place of observation though it  may drizzle here and there.

(3) The corresponding fortnight from 30th August and 13th September 2016 has a rare combination of Venus, Mercury and Jupiter in Virgo, a common sign. On 30th August Mercury turns retrograde and crosses Jupiter on 1st September. Venus is ahead of them by 4 degrees only. Such a close conjunction between these three planets in Uttra Phalguni (lorded by Sun) and Mercury turning retro in its own sign and Sun in its own sign shows some play of heat, wind and rainfall.

At that time Mars will be in Jyeshta after having overtaken Saturn in transit. Mars in Jyehsta is not good for rains. Moreover Mars is associated with violent play of nature. We have to see how the very good rainfall indicators on the one hand and violent Mars on the other are going to interact. However the overall picture shows some good rainfall in the places where SW monsoon is due but also shows a change in the character of the rainfall.
