The Mighty Solar Eclipse on December
Six planets together in one sign, yes, that is going to happen during this December 25th precisely speaking on Christmas day. So, which sign is going to get activated? According to Vedic astrology, it is the sign of Sagittarius and according to western astrology, it is the sign of Capricorn. Which are those planets making this wonderful cosmic movement? The Sun, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Venus and yes the queen of astrology, Moon. When the Moon comes here, you will see a mighty solar eclipse. A solar eclipse happens when the Moon moves between the Sun and Earth, blocking out the Sun and thus cast a shadow on parts of Earth.
In Rig-Veda 5th Mandala. 40th sukta sage Atri gives a detailed description of the solar eclipse. He says the shadow of the Moon started covering a large part of the Sun and the red color at the sky became visible.
HYMN XL. Indra. Sūrya. Atri.
5 O Sūrya, when the Asura’s descendant Svarbhanu, pierced thee through and through with darkness,
All creatures looked like one who is bewildered, who knoweth not the place where he is standing.
6 What time thou smotest down Svarbhanu’s magic that spread itself beneath the sky, O Indra,
By his fourth sacred prayer Atri discovered Sūrya concealed in the gloom that stayed his function.
7 Let not the oppressor with this dread, through anger swallow me up, for I am thine, O Atri.
Mitra art thou, the sender of true blessings: thou and King Varuṇa be both my helpers.
8 The Brahman Atri, as he set the press-stones, serving the Gods with praise and adoration,
Established in the heaven the eye of Sūrya, and caused Svarbhanu’s magic arts to vanish.
9 The Atris found the Sun again, him whom Svarbhanu of the brood
Of Asuras had pierced with gloom. This none besides had the power to do.

Sage Atri gives a detailed description of how the Sun appears during the total eclipse process and he says entire nature is scared due to the transformation of the Sun. Sage Atri identifies the darkness during the solar eclipse has a different nature. Our ancient texts are so authentic and they speak a lot of science, but it creates confusion as it is written symbolically. The solar eclipse is a natural phenomenon as we know it happens when Moon comes between Earth and the Sun.
This upcoming solar eclipse is seen as a very serious event by the astrologers and some people spread a lot of fear among innocent ones. According to western astrology, solar eclipses show beginnings and the lunar eclipses show endings or perfections. According to Vedic astrology, solar eclipses are a negative event.
During this Christmas day, multiple planets will be in the sign of Sagittarius. Multiple planets in one sign are not seen as great placement according to astrology. It projects negativity and confusion. In a person’s birth chart, if there are multiple planets in one house, then that says the major focus of that person’s life will be on that house.
If by Mahadasa or Antar dasa any house which is ruled by Sagittarius is activated, then this eclipse can be an important phase for you.
Aries – 9th
Foreign travels, foreign relations, higher studies, teaching, publishing, spirituality, and philosophy.
Sex, crisis, investments, finances, taxes, insurances, partnerships and loans
Spouse, marriage, personal and professional relations, agreements, contracts, and open enemies
Work, colleagues, health, debts, responsibilities, and pets.
Romance, entertainment, fun, children, youth groups, creativity, self-promotion, and speculative business.
Home, family, ancestors, parents and ancestral property
Short travels, short courses, media, communication, technology, siblings, writing, and editing
Money, material possessions, family, speech, and self-worth
Self, personality, attitude, health, vitality, ambition and perspective.
Hidden fears, emotions. Psyche, isolation, seclusion, long-distance travel spirituality and charity.
Friendships, collective projects, long-term associations, children, youth groups, hopes, wishes, and gains.
Career, social status, bosses, authority, and ambitions.
So, these are the matters which are going to get influenced, if your maha dasa or Antar dasa is hitting the sign of Sagittarius in your chart.
Every sign will have a lot of awareness regarding the respective houses. When too many planets stay in one house that means different energies acting on one point. This will be a revealing time and that may not be easy for anyone. You will have to stretch yourself, to finalize which energy is going to give you some benefit. Our birth chart shows the promises of what we have to go through in the present life. Transits are those movements that project the timing of those promises.
Please read carefully regarding which matters will get projected during this solar eclipse. According to western astrology, the impact of eclipses is long-lasting.
From a global perspective, this eclipse will be a triggering point of a lot of intense events. During the last astrology class, Guru, Shree K. N Raoji was sharing how the world is going to go through so much turbulence from 2020 onwards. He asked us to prepare to be financially fit as the entire world can go through a lot of crises.
There will be a lot of new laws, which are going to restrict our rights and there will be general unrest regarding multiple issues like climate change, health issues and economic issues. As people think the current ruling party is not going to have an easy time. There will be multiple challenges when Saturn moves into Capricorn. Now when Citizenship Amendment Bills are been passed with a magnificent majority, it will give rise to a lot of unrest. I support that and I don’t want to share my land with anyone who is not a patriot. Living in Kerala, I can see how some fundamentalist parties are working against the country’s integrity and progress. I even heard that they have killer sleeper cells to finish whoever speaks against them. Even though being a Communist, I don’t want to cohabit with any such evil-minded people who want to establish a state-based on their religion despite Christian, Hindu or Muslim.
The upcoming year will be very turbulent, if it is Onion now, after a few days, there will be multiple things going to be very costly.
So, as an astrologer, I must tell you that, we are not stepping into good times. This is the time to be more spiritual, humanitarian and kind to each other except Jihadis of any religion. Since Jupiter, the planet for ultimate spirituality is going to be in its Mool Trikon sign; there will be a spiritual awareness in everyone. I hope it will be alive and bear the beautiful fruits of peace, love, and kindness, which the world is lacking these days.
So, the solar eclipse will be sowing the seed of changes and we all will be a part of it, in a prescribed way by the rules set by the universe. We all have a great role to play when the solar eclipse hits us during this December. Please scroll up and see which matter is going to get triggered during this time and you can see it primarily through Moon, Lagna and Sun signs. Moon your mind, Sun is your soul and Lagna is your physical body. These are the trinity in astrology.
