Impact dates between 30th August 2017 and 13th September 2017
This 6th day of Garbottam is a terrible wash out, to say the least. Despite the presence of favourable star and Moon in conjunction with malefics, the sky did not produce any sign of life on this day. The day was hot and dry and cloudless for most part. The impact period has Mercury in combustion which under normal circumstances would favour rainfall in the rainy season. On 25th and 26th August 2017, Mercury would be crossing the Sun which is also a favourable trigger factor for a meteorological event. But Chennai would not reap any benefit out of these transits during this period.
Rainfall support features:-
(1) Mercury – Venus closeness is on during this fortnight. Mercury keeps moving backwards and closing the gap with Venus.
(2) On 19th August Mercury enters combustion which is a trigger for rainfall or a meteorological event. It comes out of combustion on 4th September which is also a trigger for rainfall and some meteorological event in the rainy season.
Rainfall spoiling features:-
(1) Mars will be in Leo from 27th August onwards. It is joined with retrograde Mercury and Sun during the fortnight under consideration. This is a rainfall spoiling feature.
Inference:- This is a terrible wash out day as far as Garbottam is concerned. Chennai would continue to be dry till middle of September. With rainfall support days happening, a good Garbottam in the coming days is eagerly awaited.
