6 5,937 views

I have been writing my article on Rainfall every year before the onset of monsoon. Similarly, I have analysed the rainfall prediction for 2017 too. For layman, it is suggested that they read the conclusions given at the end of the article.

Hemalambha year….There will be fear all around, food supplies and rain will be medium and there will be commotion/indignation amongst the leaders. These are just general conditions and a lot depends on the planetary positions, which are discussed later.

Samvatsar, its Deha effects…..Kritika and Rohini are Samvatsar’s Deha, Purvashada and Uttarashada represents Nabhi party of body, Ashlesha is the heart and Magha is flower. Whenever, at the inception of Chaitra shukla chart if any natural malefic planets occupies the above nakshatras, then there are certain malefic effects. In the attached Ardra Pravesh Chart, Rahu is in Magha nakshatra (which represents the flower), then there will be rise in atrocities on children.

King of the year…..The day rising at the time of the new year chart become the King of the year. The day is Tuesday, ruled by Mars. If its Mars, then, fear from fire, loss of human lives, uneasiness amongst the thieves, kings and its people will suffer from epidemics, Finally less rainfall.

Minister of the year….This is the lord of the day when Sun enters Aries sign. Here the lord of day is Jupiter. Then there will be increase in production of food grains, increase in rainfall and the Kings will take care of his people.

Lord of Clouds…..The day rising at the time of Ardra Pravesh becomes the lord of the year. The day rising is Wednesday ruled by Mercury. The effect is rainfall will be in plenty, production of wheat grains will be more and there will be all round happiness.

Tithi rising in the Ardra Pravesh…. It is Krishna Trayodasi at the time of Ardra Pravesh. There will be good rainfall.

Lord of the week…..In Ardra Pravesh, the lord of the day is Wednesday. Then the Brahmin community will prosper.

Nakshatra rising during the Ardra Pravesh…..The nakshatra is Kritika. There will be fear from fire and good rainfall.

Yoga rising during the Ardra Pravesh…..The yoga is Vaidhruti yoga. The effect will be all living beings will fear from epidemics.

The Lagna rising at the time of Ardra Pravesh……The lagna is in rashi sandhi. When Sun and Moon are in 5/9 to each other, or when Moon is in Kendra sthanas and it is in watery sign and natural benefics aspects the lagna, then there will be good rains.

Rohini ChakraRohini Vas Chakra

In the above chart, from the Aries Ingress chart (the chart is not given here) ascertain the nakshatra. In the Aries ingress the nakshatra is Vishaka. The Rohini falls in 17th section, which represents “Seashore”. This shows that rainfall will be very good and food grains production will be also good.

The Cloud formation chart…..Rainfall_cloud_2017

As female species conceive, there is also supposed to be conception of clouds. As per sage varahamihra when Moon enters the constellation Purva Ashada in the month of December it is supposed to be the day of conception. According to some old sages, Sun’s entry into Purva Ashada is to be taken into account. But generally accepted practice is to take the Moon’s entry.

Under the following circumstances, there will be miscarriage of the fetus.
– Dust storms
– Earthquakes
– Eclipse
– If at the time of cloud formation, there will be affliction to Moon by malefic planets, there will be hailstorms and thunderbolt during the rainy season.

In the above chart, Moon is afflicted by Rahu.

Based on the above if we add 195 days, we get June 15th, 2016. This date + or – 2 days we should get first rain. This does not include pre-monsoon showers. This year we can expect the rains to begin around June 15th, 2017.

But the actual rainfall takes place when the Sun enters the constellation Ardra. So this means that it takes about 195 days approximately for delivery of rain. But to test the pregnancy (like we human being do) it is done by “Vayu Parikshan”. Here it is said that on that day when Moon enters Purva Ashada, we need to observe the direction of wind. It is said that when you feel the wind from North, North East or East the rain is supposed to be in abundance. We will not get into this subject.

The conjunction of planets and its effect on rainfall….
– When Mercury and Venus are conjoined and it is aspected or conjunct natural malefic planets then there will be no or insufficient rains. When the same Mercury and Venus are aspected by Jupiter then rain will be in plenty.
– When Mercury, Jupiter and Venus are conjunct in one sign and not aspected by malefics, then there will be plenty of rain.
– When Venus, Saturn and Mars are conjunct and Jupiter is aspecting them, then there will be heavy rains.
– When Venus is conjunct with Moon or Mars is conjunct Moon, then too there will be plenty of rains.
– When natural benefics are ahead of natural malefics, then there will be plenty of rains.
– When Jupiter is conjunct Sun, then there will be good rainfall. This is till when Jupiter is not combust.
– When Venus turns retrograde and separates from Mercury, then for 5 to 7 days there will be heavy rains.
– When Sun is in Cancer and Jupiter aspects it then there will be plenty of rain.
– When a planet is rising or combust and Jupiter aspects it then there will be plenty of rains.
– When Venus and Saturn are conjunct then there will be less rains. When natural malefic planets gets out of retrogression then there will be good rains. When Jupiter is retrograde then too there will plenty of rain.
– When natural malefics turns high speed then there will be good rains.
– When natural benefics becomes retrograde then there will be good rains.
– When Jupiter is in Leo, Virgo and Libra and there are planets in 11th house from Jupiter, then there will be plenty of rains.
– When Mars is in 7th house from Venus; When Jupiter is in 7th house from Saturn, then too there will be rains.

The Sun’s association with following planets give following effects;
– Sun + Mercury = Rain with winds
– Sun + Venus = Heavy rains
– Sun + Mars = Warm weather
– Sun+ Jupiter = Dry weather resulting in drought
– Sun + Saturn = Scanty rain and cold weather
– Sun + Rahu = Stormy weather

Rainfall as per astrology is expected when the Sun enters the constellation “Ardra”. This happens normally during 21st/22nd/23rd June every year. Similarly, for the year 2017 the Sun enters Ardra constellation on 22nd June, 2017 at 04:59:54 taking the place for Delhi. The chart for the Sun’s entry into Ardra constellation is given below;

Rainfal-ardra-2017

The positions as given above are for day on Ardra Pravesh chart. But apart from the above narrative on placement of planets we also need to look into day-wise placement of planets. But for simplicity sake we will analyse the based on Ardra Pravesh till June 30th, 2017 and thereafter analyse chart for a block of 15 days beginning from July 1st, 2017. The analysis will be done on the following lines.

1. Planets in various constellation as per “Sapta Nadi” chakra,
2. Planets placement in various signs such as Fiery, Earthy, Airy and Watery.
3. Conjunction of Sun with various other planets as given above
4. Sun and Moon in Male/Female/Neuter constellations (Explained below)
5. Sun and Moon in Sun/Moon’s constellation (Explained below)

Satpta Nadi Chakra…..

Sapta-Nadi-Chakra

Sapta-Nadi-Chakra

The above Saptanadis are divided into 3 categories, namely Yamya, Soumya and Sheetal. The 3 nadis, Prachand, Pawan and Dahan are classified into this Yamaya category. This category promises hot and windy atmosphere. It does not promise any rains. The Somya category (Soumya, Neera and Jala) promises rains and it is from here when planets get into these categories, the rains start catching up. The Sheetal category is the Amrit section, which promises heavy rains. So, we will look at chart beginning June 22nd and thereafter every 15 days and read how the spread of planets are in the saptanadi chakra. A detailed analysis will be done in the foregoing sections.

In addition to the above, transit of Sun and Moon in constellation also needs to be considered. Here the constellations are divided into three sexes namely;
i. Ardra to Swati – Female
ii. Ashwini to Mrigashira – Male
iii. Mula to Rewati – Male
iv. Vishaka, Anuradha & Jyeshta – Neutral

Rules for Sun and Moon in various constellations: (as per Brihat Samhita)
1. Transit of Sun and Moon in NEUTRAL constellation results in blowing of wind
2. Transit of Sun and Moon in FEMALE constellation results in sky covered by clouds
3. Transit of Sun and Moon in MALE constellation results in good rains

In addition to the above, the constellations are also divided into two groups between Sun and Moon.
1. Sun’s Constellations are;
Rohini, Mrigashira, P.Phalguni, U.Phalguni, Hasta, Chitra, Swati, Vishaka, Anuradha, Jyeshta, Mula, Satbisha, P. Bhadra
2. Moon’s constellations are;
Ashwini, Bharani, Krittika, Ardra, P. Vasu, Pushya, Ashlesa, Magha, P. Ashada, U.Ashada, Sravana, Dhanishta, U. Bhadra, Rewati

Luminaries/Constellations Effects
1. Moon In Moon’s constellation Wind blows
2. Moon In Sun’s constellation Rains
3. Sun In Sun’s constellation No rain
4. Sun & Moon In Moon’s constellation Short rains
5. Sun & Moon, if one in male and other female Rains
6. Sun & Moon, if one in female and other in neutral Scattered Rains
7. Sun & Moon, if both in female or male Shadow of clouds
8. Sun & Moon, if both in neutral No rain

Analysis from June 22, 2017 to June 30, 2017
SAPTA NADI CHAKRA
Position planets in Ardra Pravesh chart are as follows:
Sun, Mars, Mercury (Ardra), Jupiter (Hasta) = Weather changes (4)
Moon (Kritika) = Fierce (1)
Venus (Bharani), Saturn (Jyeshta) = Windy (2)
Rahu (Magha), Ketu (Dhanista) = Best Rain (2)

Soumya, Neera, Jala and Amrut (Rains) category = 2 planets
Prachand, Pawan and Dahan (No Rains) category = 7 planets

From the above only 2 planets are in the section which gives “Rain”. Rest 7 planets are in section which gives “No Rains”.

Mars enters Punarvasu nakshatra on June 26th, Mercury in Punarvasu on June 28th, and Venus in Kritika on June 27th. So 4 planets are in “Rains” category and 5 in “No Rains”. So, rains will start picking up from June 28th onwards.

ELEMENTS ANALYSIS
Rahu, Venus = Fire (2)
Moon, Jupiter = Earth (2)
Sun, Mars, Mercury, Ketu = Air (4)
Saturn = Water (1)

So, only 1 planet is in watery sign, 4 planets in Airy sign and rest in other signs. So, we can expect windy rains. This is because in the saptanadi chakra too, the planets are slowly moving towards “Rains” category.

SUN and MOON IN MALE/FEMALE NAKSHATRAS
Sun in Ardra a MALE and Moon in Kritika a MALE too. When, Sun & Moon, if both in female or male, then there will be shadow of clouds.

SUN and MOON IN SUN/MOON NAKSHATRAS

Sun will enter Pushya (Better Rains category) from July 20th. All the combinations of earlier fortnight is intact, which only reiterates that rains will continue.

SUN and MOON IN MALE/FEMALE NAKSHATRAS
Sun in Pushya a FEMALE and Moon in Vishaka a NEUTRAL. Sun & Moon, if one in female and other in neutral, then there is Scattered Rains.

SUN and MOON IN SUN/MOON NAKSHATRAS
Sun is in Pushya a Moon constellation and Moon is in Vishaka a Sun constellation. When Sun and Moon is in each other’s constellations then there will be heavy rains.

PLANETARY POSITIONS
Sun and Mars are in Cancer (watery sign). This combination will give plenty of rains as it will be in 11th from Jupiter. On August 14th, Mercury will turn retrograde. This will result in massive rains.

Analysis from August 16th, 2017 to August 31st, 2017
SAPTA NADI CHAKRA
Position planets in chart beginning August 16th, 2017 as follows:
Venus (Punarvasu) = Good Rain (1)
Jupiter (Chitra) = Hot (1)
Saturn (Jyeshta), Moon (Rohini) = Windy (2)
Mercury, Rahu (Magha), Ketu (Dhanista),
Sun, Mars (Ashlesha) = Best Rain (5)

Soumya, Neera, Jala and Amrut (Rains) category = 5 planets

Based on the above spread, 5 planets are in “Best Rains” category and 4 are in “No Rains” category. Though Jupiter is shifted to “Hot” category, the rains are expected to be in plenty.

Sun will enter Magha (Better Rains category) August 17th. Mars will also move to Magha from August 28th. Mercury too will move to Magha from August 23, 2017. Venus will move to Pushya (Better Rain category from Good rain) from August 25th. So this fortnight too we can experience good rainfall.

SUN and MOON IN MALE/FEMALE NAKSHATRAS
Sun in Ashlesha a FEMALE and Moon in Rohini a MALE. When Sun and Moon are in male and female nakshatra there will be rains. This is especially so when Sun a male planet is in female and Moon a female planet is in male.

SUN and MOON IN SUN/MOON NAKSHATRAS
Sun is in Ashlesha a Moon constellation and Moon is in Rohini a Sun constellation. When Sun and Moon is in each other’s constellations then there will be heavy rains.

PLANETARY POSITIONS
Sun and Mars are in Cancer (watery sign). This combination will give plenty of rains as it will be in 11th from Jupiter. On August 18th, Rahu will change sign to Cancer from Leo. Cancer is a watery sign and this period will be witnessing heavy rains and we can expect massive damage due to floods. Sun will move to Leo (Fiery sign). On August 22nd Venus will also move to Cancer sign. It is at this time Venus, Mars and Rahu all will be together in Cancer. This will too bring in heavy rains causing massive damage due to floods. More importantly, Saturn the heavy planet will turn direct from August 26th. Mars will change its sign from Cancer to Leo on August 28th. So overall, this fortnight will be a period of heavy rainfall which will cause havoc and massive damage to human lives and properties.

Analysis from September 1st, 2017 to September 15th, 2017
SAPTA NADI CHAKRA
Position planets in chart beginning September 1st, 2017 as follows:
Venus (Pushya), Sun (P. Phalguni) = Better Rain (2)
Jupiter (Chitra) = Hot (1)
Saturn (Jyeshta), = Windy (1)
Moon (P. Ashada) = Weather changes (1)
Mercury, Mars (Magha), Rahu (Ashlesha), Ketu (Dhanista) = Best Rain (4)

Soumya, Neera, Jala and Amrut (Rains) category = 6 planets
Prachand, Pawan and Dahan (No Rains) category = 3 planets

Based on the above spread, 6 planets are in “Best Rains” category and 4 are in “No Rains” category. Though Jupiter is shifted to “Hot” category, the rains are expected to be in plenty.

Sun will enter U. Phalguni (Good Rains category from Better rains) September 14th. Venus will move into Ashlesha (Best rain from Better rain category) from September 5th. So this fortnight too we can experience good rainfall.

SUN and MOON IN MALE/FEMALE NAKSHATRAS
Sun in P.Phalguni a FEMALE and Moon in P.Ashada a MALE. When Sun and Moon are in male and female nakshatra there will be rains. This is especially so when Sun a male planet is in female and Moon a female planet is in male.

SUN and MOON IN SUN/MOON NAKSHATRAS
Sun is in P.Phalguni a Sun constellation and Moon is in P.Ashada a Moon constellation. When Sun is in Sun’s constellation there will be no rains. When Moon is in Moon’s constellation there will be wind blows.

PLANETARY POSITIONS
Venus and Rahu are in Cancer (watery sign). This combination will give plenty of rains as it will be in 11th from Jupiter. On September 6th, Mercury will turn direct. This will ensure that rains will be plenty. Another heavy benefic planet Jupiter will change sign to Libra on September 12th. When Jupiter changes sign to Libra Sun, Mars and Mercury will be in Leo in the 11th house. So this period too we will witness heavy rains causing massive damage to properties and human lives.

Analysis from September 16th, 2017 to September 30th, 2017
SAPTA NADI CHAKRA
Position planets in chart beginning September 16th, 2017 as follows:
Sun (U. Phalguni) = Good Rain (1)
Jupiter (Chitra) = Hot (1)
Saturn (Jyeshta), = Windy (1)
Mercury, Mars, Venus, Moon (Magha),
Rahu (Ashlesha), Ketu (Dhanista) = Best Rain (6)

Soumya, Neera, Jala and Amrut (Rains) category = 7 planets
Prachand, Pawan and Dahan (No Rains) category = 2 planets

Based on the above spread, 7 planets are in “Rain Rains” category and 2 are in “No Rains” category. There are almost 6 planets in “Best Rains”category. The rains are expected to be in plenty during this fortnight too.

Sun will enter Hasta (Weather changes from Good Rains category) September 27th. Mars will move in P.Phalguni (Better rain from Best rain category) from September 18th. Mercury will move into P.Phalguni (Better rain from Best rain category) from September 17th. Venus will move into P.Phalguni (Better rain from Best rain category) from September 27th. So this fortnight though we will see good rainfall, it will start receding too as the planets are getting into lower categories in saptanadis.

SUN and MOON IN MALE/FEMALE NAKSHATRAS
Sun in U.Phalguni a FEMALE and Moon in Magha a FEMALE. When Sun amd Moon are are female nakshatra, there will be shadow of clouds. So here again it reiterates that rains will start receding.

SUN and MOON IN SUN/MOON NAKSHATRAS
Sun is in U.Phalguni a Sun constellation and Moon is in Magha a Moon constellation. When Sunn is in Sun’s constellation there will be no rains. When Moon is in Moon’s constellation there will be wind blows.

PLANETARY POSITIONS
Sun, Mercury and Venus are together in Leo. This will ensure good rains. Sun will change sign to Virgo in September 17th. From Jupiter in Libra, there will be almost 4 planets (Sun, Venus, Mercury and Mars) in the 11th house in Leo. This too is a sign of good rains. Mercury changes sign to Virgo from Leo. So overall, there will be good rains in the beginning of this fortnight, but the rains will start receding from few days of the fortnight.

Conclusion:

Based on the above analysis, we can conclude as follows;
– Though the rains will start beginning from June 15th onwards, the actual rain will start picking up from end of June 2017 onwards.
– First fortnight of July, 2017 we will see plenty of rains. This will gradually increase and will see rains in the second fortnight too.
– The month of August 2017 we will see massive rains and this will cause heavy damage to properties and human lives. This is the time the government will have to be careful off and take pro-active action.
– The first fortnight of September, 2017 too we will witness heavy rains resulting into heavy losses. From the second fortnight of September, 2017 the rains will start receding.
– Overall this year’s rainfall will be above average and even the Meteorological department will fail in their predictions. As of now, the department has predicted usual/normal rainfall. But as per above analysis it will surpass the predictions/expectations.

    What about north east monsoon? Parts of Tamil nadu we need better NE monsoon. Cauvery is not following as required. Its basin in areas of naniliam have not seen her for more than 10 years.
