strength weakness planets houses -2 free vedicastrology learn astrology ...


Planets like human beings have friendship, enmity and neutral relationship with each other. This is of two types. One is the permanent and the other is temporary. By friendship and enmity we mean that THE RAYS OF ONE PLANET WILL BE INTENSIFIED OR COUNTER ACTED BY THE OTHER.
SunMoon, Mars., JupiterMercuryVenus & Saturn
MoonSun, MercuryMars, Jup, Venus, SatNone
MarsSun, Moon, JupiterVenus , SaturnMercury
MercurySun, VenusMars, Jupiter, SaturnMoon
JupiterSun, Moon, MarsSaturnMercury, Venus
VenusMercury, SaturnMars, JupiterSun, Moon
SaturnMercury, VenusJupiterSun, Moon , Mars

Planets become Friends or Neutral depending on their sign positions. Planets in 10,11,12, 2, 3, 4 positions from any other become its temporary friends. Those in the remaining sign become temporary enemies. Both these types are taken into consideration while judging a Indian horoscope. Thus the relation changes into what is called as final for that horoscope.
Permanent friend+Temporary friend=Best friend
Permanent friend+Temporary enemy=Neutral
Permanent enemy+Temporary enemy=Bitter enemy
Permanent enemy+Temporary friend=Neutral
Permanent Neural=Temporary friend=Friend
Permanent neutral+Temporary enemy=Enemy

Thus the 12 signs of the zodiac become for each planet either, Own house, Friends house, Neutral house, Enemy house or Bitter enemy house. Besides the planets have points of Exaltation and Debilitation where it gets full strength or none. These points fall exactly 180 degrees to each other

Tabulated these would be:
PlanetDegree of exaltationDegree of debilitation
SunAries 10 DegreeLibra10 Degree
MoonTaurus 3 DegreeScorpio3 degree
MarsCapricorn 28 degreesCancer 28 degrees
MercuryVirgo15 degreesPisces15 degrees
JupiterCancer5 degreesCapricorn5 degree
VenusPises27 degreeVirgo27 degree
SaturnLibra 20 degreeAries 20 degrees

The above tables combined together what is known as planetary "avasthas" or mode and shad bala chart or six-fold strength.

A planet can be in :

DEEPTA OR EXALTATION: - can give gains, respect, wealth, fame, and good progeny.
SWASTHA OR OWN HOUSE: - fame, wealth, position, land, happiness.
SANTHA/AUSPICIOUS SUB DIVISION: - strength and courage helping relatives, comforts
SAKTA/RETROGRESSION:- courage, Reputation, wealth and progeny
PEEDYA/RESIDENCE IN THE LAS PART OF A SIGN: - Prosecution, incarceration, pilfering habits, and expulsion from country
DEENA/RESIDING IN INIMICAL SIGN: - Jealousy, mental worry, brains trouble, sickness and degradation.
VIKALA/COMBUSTION: - diseases, orphanage, loss of spouse, and disgrace.
KHALA/DEBILITATION: - losses, mean birth, trouble from various sources, quarrels with parents and relations, imprisonment, hating god and sacred literature.
BHEETA/ ACCELERATED MOTION: - losses from various sources, torture, foes, mean habits, and danger in foreign countries


Each planet depending on its position gets certain strength in a horoscope. This is measured numerically in units called Rupas. These are:
· Sthana bala or positional strength.
· Digbala or the directional strength.
· Chesta bala or motional Strength
· Kala bala or temporal strength. Moon, Mars and Saturn are powerful in the night, Sun, Jupiter and Venus are powerful in day, and Mercury is powerful both in day and night.
· Drug Bala or Aspect strength
· Naisargika bala or Permanent natural strength. The order of strength is Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars and Saturn in descending order.

Stationary transits of slow moving planets, eclipses of luminaries and
transit conjunctions of slow moving planets with other planets are very
important in portending major events in life. These events trigger
important events in life.

Conjunction and samasaptaka of slow-moving planets (Jupiter, Saturn,
Rahu or Ketu) with other planets is very useful. At the time of such an
event, if those planets closely conjoin/aspect important natal positions
in rasi/divisional charts, they can trigger an important event. Nature
of the event is decided based on what the conjoined/aspected natal
position signifies in natal rasi/divisional charts. This is particularly
true if the planets in conjunction or samasaptaka in transit have some
auspicious or inauspicious synergy between what they show in that natal
chart. I will illustrate this principle in this article.

I am using planetary calculations as per Sri Surya Siddhanta (SSS).

* * *

Example 1: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person left his motherland on 1991 August 15.

At the time of event, Jupiter was at the beginning of Leo. But there was
a conjunction of Jupiter and Mars at 18Cn32 on 1991 June 16. Jupiter is
the lagna lord joining 12th lord Mars in D-4. Jupiter-Mars yoga can show
settling abroad. Moreover, they give a raja yoga (1st/5th lords) and
show fortune in the matter of residence. In natal D-4, Jupiter is at
18Cp24 and Mars is at 16Cp18. They have a yoga in natal D-4 too and they
show poorvapunya and setting abroad. At the time of transit conjunction,
Mars and Jupiter very closely aspected the natal D-4 positions of
themselves. This triggered the event in a couple of months.

* * *

Example 2: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person got a child on 1996 February 18.

Saturn had a conjunction with Venus at 24Aq59 on 1996 January 29. In
natal D-7, Venus and Saturn are 5th and 9th lords and their conjunction
is auspicious for fortune and poorvapunya. At the time of transit
conjunction at 24Aq59, they closely aspected the natal D-24 position of
Moon at 25Le19. Moon is the 2nd lord (family) in the 3rd house (11th
house of fulfilment of desires from 5th house of child). Saturn-Venus
conjunction triggered luminary Moon and brought a child soon.

* * *

Example 3: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person stood first in his state in 12th grade exams on 1987
May 28 and got selected for admission to IIT after a couple of days.

At the time of event, Jupiter was at the end of Pisces. But Jupiter had
a conjunction with Rahu at 19Pi18 on 1987 April 21. In natal D-24,
Jupiter and Rahu are the 7th/10th and 9th lords and their conjunction is
auspicious for fortune and success in education. At the time of transit
conjunction at 19Pi18, they were close to the natal D-24 position of
Venus at 16Pi40. Venus is the 5th lord exalted in 10th and shows
success, recognition and fame. Jupiter-Rahu conjunction triggered Venus
and brought success and recognition.

* * *

Example 4: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person got married in August 1993.

Saturn at 3Aq27 and Mars at 3Le27 had a samasaptaka on 1993 June 18. In
natal D-9, Saturn is 9th lord (dharma) and yogakaraka and Mars is 7th
lord (marriage). Their conjunction is auspicious for marriage and
dharma. At the time of transit samasaptaka, Mars was close to the natal
D-9 position of Saturn at 2Le21. Saturn is the yogakaraka and 9th lord
of dharma. Saturn-Mars samasaptaka triggered Saturn and brought a
marriage arranged by elders.

* * *

Example 5: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person had a powerful out of body mystical experience during
meditation on 2005 June 10. This experience demonstrated to him that the
sensory reality is a very tiny part of absolute reality and the
"self-identity" that we cling on to is not our true identity and letting
this limited identity go results in great bliss though we normally
resist it heavily. This experience triggered a huge internal

Jupiter and Ketu had a conjunction at 24Vi21 on 2005 August 23. In natal
D-20, Jupiter and Ketu are together in Sg in 8th house and show mystical
experiences and Kundalini rise. At the time of transit conjunction at
24Vi21, they were very close to the natal D-20 position of Mars at
21Vi28. Mars is the 12th lord (liberation) in the 5th house
(poorvapunya). Jupiter-Ketu conjunction triggered Mars and started the
process that may take the person towards liberation.

Though the first experience occurred on June 10, several mystical
experiences followed over the next several months. His internal
transformation and spiritual progress started in the second half of 2005
continues even now.

One should keep in mind that Kundalini awakening and initial rise is
only the beginning of the process of de-conditioning and eventual
liberation (liberation is disappearance of ALL conditioning).
Purification of awakened Kundalini (i.e. de-conditioning of a
conditioned consciousness that recognized the silliness of its
conditioning!) can take a long time.

* * *

Example 6: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person left his motherland on 1994 November 10.

At the time of event, Jupiter was at the beginning of Scorpio. But there
was a samasaptaka of Jupiter at 14Li09 and Mars at 14Ar09 on 1994 June
4. Jupiter is the lagna lord joining 12th lord Mars in D-4. Jupiter-Mars
yoga can show settling abroad (see example 1 for another occurrence!).
Moreover, they give a raja yoga (1st/5th lords) and show fortune in the
matter of residence. In natal D-4, Mercury is at 14Ar29. He is badhaka
lord and shows going abroad. At the time of transit samasaptaka, Mars
very closely conjoined natal D-4 of Mercury and Jupiter very closely
aspected it. This triggered the event in a few months. The opportunity
came suddenly without trying in the first of week of September.

When conjunction/samasaptaka of key planets in a natal divisional chart
occurs in transit and they conjoin/aspect key natal divisional
positions, an important life-changing event may be triggered. But it can
sometimes be after a few months.

* * *

Example 7: 1970 April 4, 5:48 pm (IST), Machilipatnam, India (81e08,
16n10). The person lost his job on 2002 August 12 when the startup
company he worked for went in to hibernation.

Jupiter and Sun had a conjunction at 4Cn38 on 2002 July 21. In natal
D-10, Jupiter and Sun are the 2nd and 7th lords from 6th house of job
and marakas for job. Even from lagna, they are badhaka lord and the 12th
lord of loss. Their conjunction is inauspicious and shows
problems/losses in job. At the time of transit conjunction at 4Cn38,
they were very close to the natal D-10 position of Venus at 4Cn27. Venus
is the 9th lord (fortune). Jupiter-Sun conjunction triggered Venus and
affected fortune adversely by bringing a job loss.

* * *

Example 8: Rajiv Gandhi's birthdata is 1944 August 20, 7:12 am (IST),
72e49, 18n58. He became India's prime minister in the first week of
November 1984.

Jupiter and Mars had a conjunction at 14Sg09 on 1984 October 15. In
natal D-10, Jupiter is lagna lord in lagna aspecting 5th and Mars is the
5th lord. Their conjunction is auspcious and can show power. When they
were conjoined in transit at 14Sg09, they were close to natal D-10
position of Jupiter at 11Sg44. Jupiter-Mars conjunction triggered
Jupiter and gave a powerful position in career.

* * *

Example 9: Rajiv Gandhi's birthdata is 1944 August 20, 7:12 am (IST),
72e49, 18n58. He lost India's Prime Ministership in elections at the end
of November 1989.

Saturn and Venus had a conjunction at 13Sg54 on 1984 November 14. In
natal D-10, Saturn and Venus are functional malefics. From the 5th house
of power, Venus is 2nd/7th lord and a maraka and Saturn is badhaka lord
in 8th. Their conjunction is inauspcious and can show setbacks to power.
When they were conjoined in transit at 13Sg54, they were close to natal
D-10 position of Jupiter at 11Sg44. Jupiter is the lagna lord in lagna
aspecting 5th house. Saturn-Venus conjunction triggered Jupiter
negatively and gave a setback to power in career.

About Me

I was born and brought up in India and currently living near Boston, US with a wife and two children.
Work & Education
I am a software engineer specializing in low level embedded software related to digital video and video codecs. I have a bachelors degree in engineering from Indian Institute of Technnology, Madras/Chennai and a masters degree from Rice University, Houston, US.
I am also a Sanskrit scholar. By an age of 11, I passed two series of examinations both equivalent to a Bachelor's degree in Sanskrit language (one of them with a distinction) and, at an age of 12, I passed a series of examinations equivalent to a Bachelor's degree in Hindi language.
Personal Life
I got married in August 1993 to my wife Padmaja Bandaru. She is a Computer Science teacher at a charter school in greater Boston. She has a bachelors degree in engineering. She is active in state and national Computer Science Teachers Association activities. She is a good organizer and organizes our saamoohika (mass) Satya Narayana poojas.
My daughter Sriharini was born in February 1996. She is a good student and her hobbies include Carnatic music (south Indian classical music) and Kuchipudi dance. An Adele song sung by her, while also playing on ukulele, can be viewed on youtube.
My son Sriharish was born in August 1998. He is a good student and his hobbies include computer programming, music, basketball and football. He is also getting interested in film making. "The Chase", a 2-minute short film made by his team, can be viewed on youtube.
There is a small story behind the name of my son. My wife wanted to give him the name of Lord Hanuman (a Hindu deity - Monkey God). My Jyotish guru suggested naming him after Lord Vishnu (another Hindu deity). My father wanted to name him after Lord Narasimha (the Lion-Man God). I wanted to name him after Lord Hayagreeva (Horse-headed God of knowledge).
Narasimha RaoMy father suggested a name which satisfies all the requirements! The word "hari" means monkey, lion, horse and Lord Vishnu and "Sriharish" can be interpreted to mean all the four suggested names!
Spirituality Interest
One of my interests is to enable anybody interested in spiritual progress to do rituals such as homam (fire ritual), pitri tarpana (oblations to ancestors) and Satya Narayana vratam by themselves. There are a lot of free resources, such as manuals, audio and video, on this website. Thousands of people are doing a daily or weekly homam by themselves around the world now, using those resources.
Though I am a Vedantin (philosopher) inherently and emphasize internal transformation over external things, I recongize the usefulness of some external rituals in facilitating internal transformation and particularly the efficacy of Fire. Apart from the traditional ritual of homam, I also teach Fire Yoga, a religion agnostic method to worship God through Fire.
GurusMy spiritual guru is Dr Manish Pandit from Pune (living in UK now - single picture on left). His guru was Sri Nakhate Maharaj from Pune (right bottom in the leftmost picture). His guru was Yogiraj Sri Vamanrao Dattatreya Gulavani Maharaj(left bottom). His two gurus wereParamahamsa Parivrajakacharya Sri Vasudevananda Saraswati, famously known in Maharashtra as Sri Tembe Swami (top left in the picture), and Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Sri Loknath Tirth Swami Maharaj (top right in the picture).
Astrology Pursuit
I have been passionately conducting researches in India's Vedic astrology since 1993. My father Sri Pingali Venkata Subrahmanyachalapathi Rao is a brilliant astrologer. I learnt astrology from him. I learnt the basics when very young, but I always had doubts about astrology's worth. Several things did not make any sense to me. Sometimes I would be impressed with astrology and sometimes I would think it was just a superstition. I vacillated from admiring and believing in astrology to doubting the very basics of the subject.
From second half of 1993, I pursued astrology in depth and I have studied and researched many classic and modern works and schools of thought. Apart from Dr B.V. Raman's books, guidance from my Jyotish guru Pt Sanjay Rath of Sri Jagannath Center helped my progress in particular.
I am not yet satisfied that we have understood the words of rishis correctly, even in some key fundamental issues, and my research continues. Even as I continue research, I continually keep sharing the little I know.
I wrote a textbook and many articles in "Astrological Magazine of India", "Jyotish Digest", "Express StarTeller" and "Modern Astrology" magazines. I wrote a lot of research articles on internet discussion groups. I teach free weekly Jyotish classes near Boston.
Astrologers among you may be interested in my birthdata. I was born in Machilipatnam, AP, India (81 E 08, 16 N 10) on 1970 April 4 at 5:47:08 pm (IST: 5 1/2 hrs ahead of GMT). This data should be enough for astrologers among you to figure out why I became an astrologer.

El día 3 de Noviembre de 2013, tenemos un eclipse de Sol, poco usual. Lo denominan “eclipse híbrido de Sol” y es el más raro de los cuatro tipos de eclipses solares.  Tiene la peculiaridad de comenzar siendo un “eclipse anular”, conforme se va desarrollando,  transformarse  en un “eclipse total”, que finaliza convirtiéndose en otro segundo “eclipse anular”. La Luna aquí, pasa por delante del sol, proyectando su  sombra sobre la superficie de la Tierra. En un primer momento, la luna no es  suficientemente grande como para cubrir completamente el sol y al situarse delante de él, la parte exterior del Sol.
Este eclipse “híbrido”, comenzará en el Atlántico, al sureste de Las Bermudas, a cierta distancia de la costa de Florida, barriendo hacia el sureste hasta el ecuador, trasladándose poco a poco,  por la costa atlántica de Norteamérica. El siguiente punto serán las islas de Cabo Verde, bordeando la costa africana del suroeste. El punto culminante ocurrirá en éstas mismas costas de Africa,  a 402 km de la costa de Liberia; la totalidad durará unos 100 segundos. El camino entonces se mueve sobre el centro de África, cubriendo  los países del Africa Central: Gabón, Congo, Uganda y Kenia, hasta morir en el atardecer de la frontera etíope-somalí.
Como enfrentar los Eclipses?
Un eclipse de Sol puede simbolizar la desaparición momentánea de nuestro potencial interior, sentimos ausencia de poder personal, de voluntad, de capacidad visualizar metas personales. Durante la influencia de los eclipses, la fuerza magnética que se genera por su causa moviliza las emociones, las pulsiones y la fuerza instintiva desde la raíz en la psicología de la persona. Exalta la personalidad excesivamente, teniendo lugar la pedantería y imaginarios privilegios, surgen abruptamente los arrebatos y jactancias, buscando humillar a otros. Afecta los sentimientos, evitando que los mismos se manifiesten, ya que las emociones se abren camino, en su dinámica avasallante y desmesurada provocando la intolerancia de los actos y no dejando lugar a los sentimientos para poder expresarse. Podemos ver esto en la expresión, como cambia bajo los eclipses, la misma se endurece, la mirada se torna mas penetrante y salvaje, las palabras poseen una carga mas lasciva e incisiva. Todo sentimiento de conciliación se bloquea por el mismo efecto emocional negativo que tiene lugar, que extraña vez se ablanda aún ante las exigencias de la realidad.
La rigidez que pudiera tener la persona en su conformación psicológica ahora surge libremente, dando lugar así a la obstinación. La rigidez paraliza así la función de los pensamientos constructivos, éstos necesitan libertad para movilizarse con alegría para poder intervenir en lo cotidiano de la vida, puede observarse rápidamente y en uno mismo, la necesidad de discutir intentando imponer los propios puntos de vista con cierto absolutismo, pese a la buena voluntad interna o externa que pudiera observarse, la fuerza emocional arrasa impidiendo un propósito mas conciliador y constructivo.
Este eclipse del 3 de Noviembre de 2013, se produce en el signo de Escorpio, por lo cual será el signo mas afectado por dicho evento, también la Luna y Saturno estarán el mismo signo.  Será una interesante y kármica movilización de la energía de Escorpio. Los signos mas afectados serán: Escorpio, Tauro, Leo y Acuario.
Esto marca una invitación a la reflexión, en el día del eclipse, de manera mas evidente en el plano de las percepciones sensoriales, desde la apreciación emocional, profunda y aguda de una Luna Escorpiana,  que trasciende y expande los límites personales en la manera de relacionarse con los demás. Es una gran oportunidad para deshacerse de condicionamientos que nos impiden disfrutar:
Si no tenemos “seguridad emocional en…”. Ejercitar la constancia en la introspección certera y voluntaria, para poder sentirse seguro, aunque estés en medio de crisis personal.
Si no sentimos “en tener el poder sobre…” Soltar y dejar morir el sentido de posesión sobre situaciones externas, y comprender que la única posesión legítima y verdadera: es sobre uno mismo.
También otra situación será en la que “cargamos con…”…, las obligaciones y responsabilidades, pasan a ser  un asunto “concreto”, comprendiendo donde poner los propios límites y reconociendo nuestras capacidades que son, precisamente, las que nos permiten hacer el “proceso de transformación” y convertir las cargas (plomo), en ventajas (oro) que facilitan, acompañan y nos sostienen en nuestra propia realización.

Todo lo que esta en nuestro subconsciente será muy poderoso en este momento y aflorará intempestivamente. Es el puente entre el plano psíquico y el espiritual, es el pequeño “click” transformador, que convierte los bloqueos psíquicos en crecimiento espiritual, tiene aquí y en este momento el terreno fértil para que esto pase; es el estrecho camino que diferencia entre un “ataque de pánico”, de una “crisis/cambio espiritual”.

Estamos en vísperas del próximo eclipse de Sol que se producirá este 03 de noviembre de 2013, el cual será de tipo híbrido, es decir, en ciertas zonas se verá como un eclipse anular (donde el disco lunar no logrará tapar por completo el círculo solar, quedando un anillo de luz) y en otras zonas, como eclipse total (ocultación total del Sol).
Como indiqué en la entrada anterior del eclipse del pasado 13 de noviembre de 2012, todo eclipse de Sol tiene implícito la energía de Escorpio, banda zodiacal que rige todo proceso de muerte y renacimiento, de finales y cierres de ciclos de manera definitiva.
Pues bien, al ocurrir en el signo de Escorpio, esta fuerza dual muerte – renacimiento queda amplificada o enfatizada, por lo cual las transformaciones y cierres de ciclos en el colectivo serán apreciables y de gran impacto durante los próximos seis meses.
Este evento cósmico trae consigo cambios que afectarán al colectivo en función de la simbología de la energía solar, el signo de ocurrencia, el regente planetario y los aspectos planetarios que lo acompañan.
Antes de especificar esos puntos, detallo a continuación los aspectos técnicos del mismo, tanto desde el punto de vista astrológico como astronómico.
  • Sombra y penumbra del eclipse: Costa este de EEUU, antillas, Colombia, Venezuela , norte de Brasil, centro del Atlántico, Sur de Europa (España, Portugal), parte occidental del Medio Oriente y Centro y Sur del continente africano (ver mapa y animación del eclipse tomados de wikipediahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_eclipse_of_November_3,_2013).

  • Planeta regente: Plutón (Marte).
  • Planetas que lo aspectan: Saturno y Mercurio Rx en conjunción, Marte y Plutón en sextil, Urano en quincucio.
  • Puntos de interés: Saturno actúa entre el eclipse y Plutón al estar en recepción mutua con dicho planeta, enfatizando y amplificando el aspecto transformador y profundo de sus efectos.
  • Alcance de los efectos del eclipse: se prolonga por 6 meses y en este caso trae cambios de gran impacto y profundidad.
Este eclipse de Sol traerá muchos efectos profundos y transformadores a nivel del colectivo global, ya que está fuertemente conectado con Plutón, planeta que está siendo protagonista durante estos años al formar parte de la actual Cuadratura con Urano (hasta el 2015), figura que está generando cambios fuertes, repentinos y definitivos.
Eclipse de Sol en Escorpio – regido por Plutón
Cómo se dijo anteriormente, la energía de un eclipse marca el fin de un Sol (energía y estructura interna del ser individual y/o colectivo) alrededor el cual se fundamentaba el orden y la estructura antes del momento del eclipse, trayendo consigo un proceso de crisis que abre el camino a la regeneración y nacimiento de una nueva luz, de una nueva etapa.
Su ocurrencia en Escorpio enfatiza y amplifica el carácter transformador del eclipse, por lo cual, anuncia cambios que serán definitivos y radicales. Caerán estructuras que son caducas y que están destinadas a quedar en el pasado; cascarones que ya no dan para más en la vida personal y social, principalmente en aquellos países que quedan arropados por la sombra del eclipse.
Escorpio involucra el tema de la muerte, por lo cual, es posible que en este marco de 6 meses grandes eventos naturales (terremotos) y humanos (terrorismo) de naturaleza catastrófico pueden ocurrir y ser activadores de grandes cambios. Líderes y gobiernos muy arraigados, que se niegan a cambiar y que resultan incómodos para la evolución, serán afectados.
Plutón rige con gran fuerza el eclipse:
Plutón se enlaza fuertemente con el eclipse a través de 3 formas:
  • a través del signo de Escorpio a quien rige,
  • formando un sextil con el Sol y la Luna durante el evento y
  • a través de Saturno, estando en mutua recepción: Saturno en casa de Plutón (Escorpio) y éste en casa de Saturno (Capricornio). En palabras sencillas, es como si Plutón estuviese también en conjunción con dicho eclipse.
Esta condición establece que los cambios a verse serán radicales, de gran impacto y profundidad. Hay que estar muy pendientes de los sucesos que habrán de ocurrir durante este período de 6 meses pues serán determinantes.
Esta influencia de Plutón con el eclipse actúa como un catalizador a los efectos que está trayendo la Cuadratura Urano-Plutón, la cual, en al momento del eclipse estará en un punto de máximo influencia (orbes menor a un grado).
Este eclipse anuncia que el efecto transformador de esta cuadratura operará de manera total durante los próximos 6 meses. ¿Cuál es el tema de esta cuadratura?
  • Urano y Plutón son de influencia generacional y evocan cambios, el primero de carácter liberador y progresista, el segundo involucra lo definitivo y transformador, tipo metamorfosis.
  • Urano está iniciando un nuevo ciclo zodiacal, se encuentra en Aries. Su cuadratura con Plutón en Capricornio, indica fuerte tensión producto de estructuras caducas que deben desaparecer para permitir que esa nueva renovación uraniana se manifieste.
  • Plutón en Capricornio, establece la destrucción definitiva de estructuras caducas de todo tipo: personales, sociales, económicas, políticas y religiosas, etc. que deberán ser sustituidas por un nuevo orden.
  • La cuadratura marca dos caminos. Uno donde los cambios se producirán con lentitud, pero asegurando su carácter definitivo y otro, donde los cambios traerán o se producirán por revueltas sociales que necesitan librarse de yugos que no permiten su libertad y renovación (lucha entre pueblos que claman libertad – Urano -  y gobiernos que los oprimen – Plutón).
Aspectos del Eclipse con los planetas:

  • Saturno y Mercurio en conjunción
Saturno en conjunción del eclipse le añade un carácter karmático. Representando a Cronos, el regente del tiempo, está diciendo que el 3 de noviembre es el fin de un tiempo importante y lo que ha de morir y perecer deberá hacerlo, para abrir paso a lo nuevo. Saturno anuncia que el proceso será duro y de gran profundidad.
mercurio astrologíaMercurio Rx, conecta con el pasado y el mundo de las ideas. Toda tendencia, idea y concepto retrógrados ya no tendrán sustentos y dejarán de existir. Es de esperar una renovación definitiva de los procesos y medios de comunicación con cambios en su organización y funcionamiento y conceptos que rigen la economía y sus transacciones. Además, y a nivel más personal, viejas ideas, conceptos fuertemente arraigados serán arrancados de raíz, en un proceso que como todo aquel asociado a Escorpio será de intensidad y doloroso como la muerte que rige.

Establece que las acciones necesarias para los cambios que producirá este eclipse se llevarán a cabo y marca la necesidad de planificar a detalle los pasos a seguir para minimizar los efectos traumáticos y negativos propios de este fenómeno. Esta facilidad estará disponible, pero hay que activarla por medio de la acción.
Establece que muchos efectos serán impredecibles, duros y hasta desagradables, de los cuales no se podrá escapar. Los cambios serán activados o producirán repentinas protestas y luchas sociales que reclaman libertades y derechos con violencia (Aries). No es de extrañar, que en estos 6 meses se produzcan insurrecciones populares y golpes de Estado en aquellas zonas arropadas por el eclipse o dónde este toque puntos vitales en los temas natales de países.
Este eclipse marca un punto de inflexión y lo intuyo como el rabo  del Escorpión que tocará con fines benéficos al corazón y fuerza interna de este país (trígono con el Sol), promoviendo en el lapso de estos 6 meses los cambios que fueron anunciados en la revolución solar (es la imagen que me viene a la mente). Estos movimientos deben ser vistos casi de manera inmediata, representado por el hecho de que el Sol nacerá eclipsado.

 03/11/13 05:58
El 03/11 debe ser un punto de inflexión que marca el fin de una forma de gobierno y gobernante y el inicio de una nueva etapa de manera radical, al estilo Escorpiano.
Como ya se ha discutido, la fuerza de los dos grandes maestros de la astrología,Saturno (el externo) y Plutón (el interno), indican que un tiempo de poder y de gobierno llegó a su fin y debe transformarse para abrir paso a una renovación que lleve hacia delante y, como lo dije en la revolución solar, este eclipse marca el punto de partida para que Venezuela corrija su camino de destino. La presencia de Mercurio Rx, indica que es el tiempo para dejar atrás paradigmas e ideas obsesivas y radicales del pasado, por lo que no descarto que el ideal chavista mengue de manera considerable.
El eclipse ocurre en Casa XII y se activa el eje Casa XII – Casa VI, por lo que no se descarta lo conspirativo, lo subrepticio del cambio, pero siendo la última casa, establece que se cierra un ciclo, con toda la dureza y profundidad que este eclipse trae para el país. No es despreciable que cambios en lo que respecta a lo laboral y sectores de servicio (militares) o donde éstos están involucrados impulsen dichos cambios. 
Después del 03/11 no hay retorno y fechas importantes serán el contacto del Sol y Saturno con Urano Natal (hasta el 21/11) y luego tocando el punto medio Urano-Marte, a partir del 09 de diciembre.
Otros efectos a esperar: 
  • Siria es tocada por la sombra: atención con la situación y duración de su gobierno.
  • Toca costa oriental de EEUU: con Mercurio y Saturno involucrado en Escorpio, no descarto profundas modificaciones por el tema de espionaje (regido por Escorpio), que constará la caída y remoción de personas importantes y reestructuración de instituciones (tipo la CIA).
  • Atención con conflictos en la zona central de África
  • Considerando que la sombra del eclipse toca a Cuba y Fidel Castro está por experimentar su III retorno de Saturno (25 de diciembre), atención con este personaje y sus frutos. El eclipse ocurre muy cerca de formar cuadratura con su Sol Natal (19º Leo), por lo que su influencia y vitalidad se verán mermados y puestos a prueba. Estos 6 meses venideros no serán fáciles para él y su revolución.
