Meanwhile Piyasena Rathuwithana has been in the astrological field
for nearly 30 years. At present he works as the Consultant Editor of the
`Subasetha’, weekly Sinhala periodical of the ANCL publications of Lake
House. He gives some predictions for the country along with a few things
about individual stars for the Sinhala and Hindu New Year.
The planetary changes occur along with the dawn of the Sinhala Hindu
New Year seems good for the country and the Government. Economical
Since both the Sun (Ravi) and Moon (Chandra) are well positioned in
the horoscope chart of Sri Lanka, the Government would shine with many
triumphs with enmity destruction, and gains of assistance and aid from
neighbouring countries. New developments in roads and highway
constructions indicated. But, special attention should be paid for the
uplift in the educational field.
Aquarius (Kumbha) is the Lagna of the horoscope of Sri Lanka. Saturn
(Shani) has moved to the House of Leo (Sinha) in the Lankan horoscope.
Every time in the history when the similar planetary change occurred,
it has given strong and favourable results for the native authorities.
Bestowing more power for the locals by increasing the number of local
Members of the Parliament from 10 to 23 in 1918, gaining Independence in
1948 and the socio and economical change took place in 1977 are the
prominent occurrences we can give as examples from history.
So, along with the present change, more power will get instilled with
a leader who has threaded Parliament from the village in the South of
the Country who knows the happy, grief and the pulse beat of the common
people. Hence President Mahinda Rajapaksa would gain glowing recognition
both locally and internationally.
Around 16 planetary changes and 22 planetary wars will occur from
time to time in the year through. The Nekatha of the dawn of the New
Year is `Pusha’ which belongs to Saturn (Shani).
The Government should guard against the secretive enmity and
conspiracies especially after April 30.
The security condition should be strengthened as well. But, all that
would be revealed in no time, as the strong planetary positions (such as
`Kuja-Shani Yoga’ in the 11th House along with a `Kuja and Chandra
Parivarthana Yoga’) in the horoscope of the present President are
powerful than any other leader born to this land so far.
