Further to my last post “The Prowess of Mars” posted on February 17, 2016, I believe that the readers agree with me about many unfavourable developments in Indian politics that have taken place since then.
Today at 1515 hrs IST Mars moved to second amsa of Scorpio. To recapitulate what has already been mentioned in my last post, Mars is conjoined by Saturn in Scorpio and Saturn is aspecting the exalted sign of Mars viz., Capricorn thus working in tandem with many characteristics of Mars. In a way, it can be said as promoting are activating Mars. However, Mars in its first amsa of Scorpio might not be very effective although we did witness many ugly political battle while the 2nd amsa we should be able to witness multifold escalation and additional major battles on a variety of national issues.
Firstly, Mars second amsa corresponds to the sign Leo wherein transit retrograde Jupiter and Rahu are posited and is under the excitation of 10th aspect of Saturn. Therefore, both in Rasi and Navamsa Saturn/Mars has got a strong hold of the Zodiac. Moving on further, Mars having moved to Leo amsa has a 6/8 relationship with Saturn and I believe that this provides a great amount of elbow space to Mars to trigger further using its ‘ammunition store house’. Looking ahead with eagle eyes, Saturn becomes retrograde on March 25 while it is still in 7th amsa of Scorpio corresponding to Capricorn, the exalted sign of Mars. By then Mars would have moved to the amsa of Libra which is the 4th amsa for Mars and it starts aspecting retrograde Saturn.
On April 17, Mars also gets retrograde while it transits in its own sign Scorpio which is its ‘5th amsa’. The digit ‘5’ implies ‘past’ and in the company of retrograde Saturn, perhaps ‘democracy’ may get re-defined in India.
Of course, there are several other Astrological factors that will have to accounted for, but, under all conditions, Mars is bound show ‘what it is’ which unfortunately may be a period of turmoil for the common man. Let’s pray for peace and tranquility.
