As if the current retrograde movements were less of a challenge we have now a solar eclipse on 21 June 2020 while Sun is in Gemini with Rahu and Mercury,Venus, Jupiter, Saturn all retrograde and Mars in Pisces aspecting Mercury and Sun!
Depending on where the Gemini sign is placed in your chart, there will be impact felt in that region and certainly the extent of impact will depend on the planetary aspects and positions in the natal chart and the Dasha/Antardasha period in operation!
Eclipses need not be feared unnecessarily- they are but a beautiful astronomical occurrence which we get to witness from time to time- they certainly bring around major changes and alterations in our lives, but when you look at those changes or impacts in hindsight- they seem to work in the favour of what is in one’s best interest- irrespective whether one realizes or not during the occurrence of the event! Individuals having a well placed/ benefic Sun will seem to be impacted lesser than others and the extent of the impact will also depend on the sign that Sun occupies in the natal chart ,the house signification and house lord signification as well. Individuals are also likely to experience mild health discomfort aligned to the house where this eclipse occurs in their natal chart- if there are malefic impacts/aspects impacting the said house.
The matter of concern however remains pertaining to the impact that the ongoing planetary transit will have on quality and way of life of the people across nations, restlessness and challenges will seem to increase for people in the region that lies in the path of the eclipse in a more pronounced manner.
Talking about India, the path clearly indicates, the need for caution and alertness to ward off any ill adventures of foreign actors and nations to create problems along the borders. The nation will have to maintain a state of enhanced vigil and alertness for a long period to come to ensure the territorial sanctity. As Gemini happens to be the second house in India’s chart with Mars being there and being aspected by the transiting Mars on Rahu, Mercury and Sun- well that’s too much of malefic impact and thereby financial situation will remain stressed for another quarter or so at least and any recovery will seem possible only later towards the end of the year!
The three months post- eclipse will be marked with incidents of violence, natural calamities and issues raised by masses and these will be felt with greater impact along the path of the eclipse. Flash floods, earthquakes , landslides, travel mishaps- as a result of engineering/chemical malfunctions, fire and fire accidents in offices/ high rises ( which you will hardly imagine!) may come calling. It will make sense to have precautionary checks done well in time and have necessary readiness.
On the issues with our neighboring nations, there will be localized tensions and escalations from time to time and, there will be a strong and calibrated response to any mischief that comes towards the nation (as it always has been the case). It will be fair to summarize that focused efforts and diplomatic handling of the situation alone will bring some sense at least for the period until year end! There will also be stress and challenges with regards to international trade and relations as well! Leaders must also ensure their own health and safety and not put caution to the winds.
The nation will be able to prevail and come out stronger through this changeling period and there will be other peripheral international developments which will play a contributory factor to accelerate this!
US will see political fluidity and will continue with its approach towards aggressive trade policies to safeguards jobs and businesses in the USA. As job numbers climb back effective July, people will start to see the impact- the same time will also see reduction in the pandemic cases and by August mid US will be firmly on path to recovery and racing ahead with election preparations!
For individuals, it will be best to avoid all unnecessary travel and take necessary precautions for ones’ health! Based on your chart indication and where the planetary transits are going through, you should be able to feel the pull and push of the eclipse and the accompanying transit and ensure you direct your energies to manage and safeguard the house significations where these are being played out!
Eclipse is also a great time to experience the energy of the Sun in a unique way and spend time connecting with the energy centers through the path that you choose. Transformation, change and progress in the interest of the larger good!
