This is my first post in year 2009. So would like to wish happy new year to all my readers. As we are also close to Makar Sankranti, I would also like to wish Happy Sankranti, Happy Pongal and Happy Lohri. Wish all these festivals bring joy and prosperity to you.
On the 14th January 2009, Sun will leave Sagittarius (Dhanu) and enter Capricorn (Makara). This transition of Sun from 'Dhanu' Rasi (Sagittarius) to 'Makara' Rasi (Capricorn) marks the starting of Uttarayana and celebrated in India by different names like Pongal, Lohri and Makar Sankranti.
Here is my general thinking on the planetary positions. Sun will be joining Jupiter, Rahu and Mercury in the sign Capricorn. Mars will also joining this combination on 27/28. So this is going to be an interesting combination of 5 planets in a sign. According to some mundane astrologers this period will mark start of political difficulties and disputes. There will be disagreements and difference of opinion which will lead to division.
Fiery Sun, Mars and Jupiter in watery sign may also indicate severe earth quake, fire incidents and blasts. As Rahu will have to face Jupiter, Mars and Sun, there will be incidents against lower castes and minorities.
Jupiter is also significator of moeny and finance. Jupiter is in its neecha rashi Capricorn and Sun is also joining enemy's sign. It shows that the economy will continue facing difficulties and volatility will still there in the share markets.
These are just general observations and I hope Sun's transition to northern hemisphere will bring prosperity and good luck to all of us.
