Mundane astrology is a difficult subject and precise prediction requires a lot of efforts. I generally do not write very often on national and international affairs. Though recently on July 11th, I had written an article on Solar eclipse and its possible impacts. In the article I had made some observations on impact of solar eclipse. Today's Times of India newspaper top stories - 1. "(Swine) Flue kills 3 more, toll 10" and 2. "161 districts are draught-prone but don't panic" reminded me about my recent article on solar eclipse. The introductory paragraph of the article goes as follows -
"Cancer is a watery sign. If the eclipse falls in Cancer sign, sedition, diseases, epidemics, extreme changes in weather leading to drying up of rivers and canals etc. are indicated."
It is unfortunate that we are seeing almost everything that is written in this paragraph. We have already seen drought in many parts of India and now swine flu has already given indication of severity of current problem. I am not sure whether Swine Flu can be called epidemics or not at this point of time, but I hope that it will be controlled at this point itself and will not spread further.
I also made certain observations on the possiblity of regions going to be affected and was also very close. The original article can be found at http://www.astrocamp.com/vedicastrology/2009/07/solar-eclipse-on-22-july-2009-india-and.html
The reason for writing current article is two-fold. One, I want to communicate the importance of Mundane astrology. Just imagine how useful it can be, if it is used by government as a serious governance tool? Government spends million of rupees on meteorological department, so why they can not spend money on astrology and use it in a systematic way?
Anyways, second, I also wanted to remind astrology community that solar eclipses are important predictive tools and should not be ignored (especailly, eclipses of higer magnitude). In fact, it requires serious systematic research on solar eclispe and I am sure we will be able to obtain higher precision in predictions (location, nature, timing etc.).
Third (I know I earlier mentioned two-fold), no harm in little bit self-promotion ;-)
