Mars in 8th amsa

Mars transiting in Libra will hit the 8th amsa around 1330 hrs IST. Saturn also transiting in Libra is already in the 8th amsa since August 20. Thus, both Saturn and Mars in Navamsa have occupied Taurus, the Lagna or Ascendant of Indian Independence chart.

The 8th amsa for any planet will always mean termination of some events related to specific bhava and the portfolio of that planet applicable to individual chart. The nature and characteristics of the impact depends on a number of issues like the dasa, bhukti and antra, natal placement of planets etc.

As far as India is concerned, Saturn and Mars have now become very powerful and conjunction of these two planets specifically in Libra, the exalted sign of Saturn is not a welcome sign. More so when even in Navamsa they are conjoined. With this transit, perhaps, the Government is more likely to be under further attack from several corners and a point worth considering is the activism of the judiciary. Probably, many judgments from Courts may go against the Government. Further, there could be escalation of territorial border related tensions apart from chances of internal violence and use of force in the public domain.

Please recapitulate comments on Navamsa transits

As already mentioned several times in the past about transits in Navamsa, in an upbeat mood, specifically about Saturn’s move to 8th amsa on August 20, 2014, the Government in India has already run into rough weather on a number of issues. A point worth noting is the judicial intervention which I have already covered under the caption “Jupiter will start firing”.

Since August 20, we find several important subjects coming up before the judiciary and many or most of them are likely to have wide spread and deep negative repercussions on the Government.  The current issues are just small samples of many more mega events which are very likely to come up when Jupiter enters Mercury star on September 3, 2014.

It is Astrologically exciting to watch out the performance of the Government in the days to come.

4th Amsa of Libra for Mars

Ironically, it looks that many events planned by a Indian political party, Aam Aadmi Party is like an Astrological missile, at least as far as I am considered. Since my mind is totally on planets transit in Navamsa, invariably, given a chance, it harps right on to Navamsa.

My take on transit of Mars in total isolation of any chart is as follows:

Rasi considerations

  • Mars in Libra means, its 8th sign characteristics are fairly diluted
  • Its ownership of Aries, the first sign of the Zodiac is greatly enhanced
  • Planets conjunct transit Mars, planets aspecting it get moderated to take on the qualities and impact of Mars
  • It has its veto power on Libra and as well the signs its aspect viz., Capricorn, Aries and Taurus apart from the amsa signs, as and when it moves forward or backward if retrograde

Navamsa considerations

The following amsa of Mars, in my opinion is very significant

  • First amsa viz., Libra itself
  • 4th amsa viz., Capricorn
  • 7th amsa viz., Aries
  • 8th amsa viz., Taurus

Obviously, this is nothing short of an off shoot of its aspects, 4, 7 and 8.  To keep the write up short and precise for reasons best known to all of us and not to create any panic amongst readers, I have reproduced below the image of Mars move into 4th amsa on August 2nd at 2039 hrs IST.


I am compelled to draw your attention to my post on Saturn moving to 8th amsa on 20th August. Incidentally, Mars too moves to 7th amsa on the same day. It is best that we witness events and then check back what Astrology has for us. Let all of us hope and pray God for peace and tranquility while truth and justice has to prevail.

Astrology is best experienced than read.
