continued from last week
Deshabandu Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena
Saturn entered Virgo, mercury's rashi on September 09, 2009 at 12.01
a.m. (mid night) ending its 2 year, 1 month 23 day stay in Leo rashi,
its enemy. (It was on July 16, 2007 that Saturn entered Leo). Virgo (kanya)
is a friendly rashi of Saturn as it is the rashi of Mercury.
As Saturn entered Virgo, its lord Mercury was in the ascendant (Uchcha),
the best way a planet could be positioned. That means Mercury was
positioned quite powerfully in Virgo at the time of Saturn's arrival.
For example, if the host is quite powerful and is in high spirits when
the guest visits him, the latter would develop a high regard for him.
Deshabandu Sumanadasa Abeygunawardena elaborates on the
planetary change that took place on Sept.09, 2009 in an
interview with the Sunday Observer.
This planetary position is favourable to the country, government and
It was in 1979 that we experienced a similar planetary position and
it was President J.R. Jayewardene who ruled the country during that
period. It was a jubilant period for President Jayewardene. Likewise the
new planetary change will bring good results to the Government and
President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
In less than three years, the Government could end the war which
dragged on for over 30 years. Likewise the country will undergo
tremendous development during the period the planet Saturn stays in
Virgo (till Aug. 4, 2012) .Sri Lanka will experience yet another
planetary change shortly which will also bring good results to the
The Lagna of Sri Lanka is Aquarius (Kumbha). On October 4, 2009 the
planet Uranus who is in his Swakshetra will enter the first House of the
As a result Sri Lanka will undergo a massive development in all
spheres specially in transport, education, tourism industry and health.
I am sure we will be able to find oil resources in our land.
I am certain that destruction caused by natural disasters would be
minimum during this period. Sri Lanka will gain international
recognition and fame.
How the planetary change will affect your lagna:
Saturn entered Virgo which is the sixth house of Aries (Mesha). As we
know Mercury is the lord of Virgo. Those who had been suffering from
health problems and who are confronted with trouble from enemies can get
rid of them. New planetary position is highly favorable for job
aspirants. Since Venus has Dig Bala (directional strength) in the 4th
House which denotes property there's a chance of acquiring property. You
will receive much support from your maternal relatives. If you aspire to
buy motor vehicles this is a good period. Since the Moon is in the lagna,
1 st House, you may expect great social recognition and you'll be able
to realize your dreams.
For those who await career promotions, it will take some time for
their aspirations to become a reality. You have to be extra careful as
there's possibility for you to face situations which will adversely
affect your reputation.
Saturn has entered the 5th house which denotes education. Since
education-friendly Mercury is in the 5th house as the Saturn enters,
there is no chance for the latter to disrupt your education. Instead
this is a powerful "yoga" which will bring educational success.
Expectant mothers will give birth to lucky babies! Athletes are assured
of victory. Since Venus is in the 3 rd House ,assistance from your
siblings are shown. Your endeavors will become successful, even the
visibly difficult ones. Due to the favourable positioning of the Moon,
which indicates foreign tours in the 12 th House (the House which talks
of ones ability to go overseas) you have the luck to enjoy foreign
tours. This luck is further strengthened by the positioning of Rahu and
Jupiter in the 9th house.
If you aspire to migrate to pursue your higher studies it will bring
marvellous results. The period is also good for individuals who aspire
to enter matrimony. It is also good for those who are engaged in joint
Anyway, it is not favourable for those who already have health
problems. They will continue to suffer from their past ailments.
The new planetary position will definitely bring property prospects
to you as the Mercury, the lord of the 4th house was quite powerfully (Pancha
Maha Purusha Yoga) positioned in it (Virgo) when the Saturn entered. You
will receive great fortunes especially from your maternal side. This is
a good period to buy vehicles. Since the Venus is in the second house,
you can earn high profit from business. You too will enjoy assistance
from your siblings as your Sun is strongly positioned in the 3rd house.
Anyway since your 'Kuja' is in lagna you may face instances which
would adversely affect your mental balance. So it is better to be extra
careful. Since Jupiter is badly positioned (Neecha)-in the eighth house
which denotes your life span, you may encounter obstacles. You may even
lose your property.
With the Saturn entering Virgo, Saturn Aerashtaka has come to an end.
Anyway, since Jupiter is badly placed (Neecha) with Rahu in the seventh
house you may face obstacles regarding matrimonial matters. Marriage
aspirants will have to wait further. Joint businesses may be at a loss.
Better to be careful. Anyway you may enjoy great mental relief as your
Erashtaka period is over, though you may not experience great happiness
as your Jupiter is badly positioned. It is only after Dec.20.2009 that
you will be able to enjoy more benefits.
This is a good period for job aspirants. You will get assistance from
your siblings. This is also a good period for those who wish to migrate.
The new planetary change is not quite favourable for those who belong
to Leo lagna as the Saturn entered the second house. This has extended
their Aerashtaka period. Aerashtaka will remain till August 04, 2012.
Anyway they will be able to reduce the mental pressure that tormented
them when Saturn was in their lagna. Though their Aerashtaka period has
not come to an end they can get rid of their financial problems.
They will be better off financially. When the Saturn enters the
second house, which denotes financial benefits, mercury is in ascendant
in that house. This is highly favourable for those who are engaged in
Anyway you have to be very careful as you may face unexpected
accidents and enemey problems. Be careful of your health. But as
mentioned before during this period you'll be financially stable.
When the planet Saturn enters virgo rashi , the first house, its lord
mercury has Dig Bala in the position. This will help eradicate almost
all the maleffects. So the new planetary change would bring good fortune
to you, especially for those who hope to migrate and for those who
expect foreign aid and assistance. Mercury denotes fame, and respect and
the new position will bring them fame, social acceptance and popularity.
This is a very good period for job aspirants. The new position will make
their lives better though they are passing an Aerashtaka period. All the
maleffects will diminish. All their dreams will come true and their
endeavors will be a success. They won't face any critical danger until
this period is over (2012 Aug. 4)
Saturn arrived in the 12th house. Your expenditure may rise and you
will encounter obstacles. After Sept.09, 2009, you may also be subjected
to "Senasuru lagna Aerashtaka". They may face property loss and enemy
problems as a result. It is better to be very careful.
This is not a good period for you if you wish to migrate. You may
suffer business losses. Rahu is in the 4th house with debilitated (neecha)
Jupiter which indicates property loss. Your mother may be struck by
illnesses. You may meet with motor vehicle accidents. It is always
better to be careful.
Saturn's movement will bring good results to you as it entered the
11th house of your horoscope. Ascendant in the 11th house will make you
financially stable. You will definitely be better off financially.
The planetary position will bring good results to those who are
engaged in gem business. Businessmen can reach lofty heights during this
period. If you wish to migrate to a foreign country this is the best
period. Fine period for students to pursue their higher education. If
you intend to go abroad to pursue your higher studies this is the ideal
period for you.
Anyway the new planetary position will not be quite favourable for
those who are already suffering from maladies. Likewise since
debilitated (neecha) Jupiter is in the 3rd house you may no longer get
the assistance from your siblings. You have to be careful about that.
Despite many obstacles, you will be financially better off during this
Saturn arrived in the 10 th house. Though it is said that Saturn in
the 10th house would not bring good results it won't be so because
Mercury, Saturn's friend is in the ascendant in the 10th house. This
position makes a "Pancha Maha Purusha yoga" which is called "Bhadra".
This is good for your profession. You may become popular and achieve
fame. The period is also good for job aspirants. This is a very good
period for politicians. Since the Sun (Ravi) is strongly positioned in
the 9th house , you may get chances to visit foreign countries. The
period is favourable for those who wish to pursue higher education.
You may get a lot of support from your father. If your father was
suffering from any ailment he may be able to get away from it.
Since the moon is in the 5th house , this is a good period for
But you will face matrimonial issues that will adversely affect you.
This is not a favourable period for those who wish to enter
Those who are engaged in joint business may suffer huge losses. So
you have to be very careful. Anyway this new planetary change will not
cause a major upheaval.
You can await a good period. New planetary position brought an end to
the "Lagna Ashtama Aerashtaka" which troubled you since July 16, 2007.
This period will be one of the best periods in your life. If you are
a student pursuing higher education this is the ideal period for you.
You may be cured of ailments that made you suffer. Also you may get
rid of the enemy problems that you had earlier. Your enemies will become
your friends. You will achieve greater happiness and mental balance.
Since the moon has 'Dig Bala' in the 4th house you will be better off
financially. You will get assistance from your mother's relatives. You
will be blessed with all the comforts- money, property, vehicles etc.
Saturn has entered in the eighth house from their lagna. Though it is
said that the new planetary position may cause a "Lagna Aerashtaka"
period, it may not be so because the lord of the 8th house, Mercury is
in the ascendant (Uchcha). As a result they may not suffer from the
maleffects of "Lagna Aerashtaka." This is the best period for you to
enter matrimony. Also good for those who are engaged in joint business.
Good period for those who wish to go on foreign trips. You may get
support from your siblings. You may enjoy good health and won't be
confronted with enemy problems. You may achieve greater success in life.
This is not a good period for athletes. You may face petty issues
because of your children.
Saturn entered your 7th house and it has "Dig Bala". Mercury is also
there. Anyway this planetary change is not highly favourable for you
though you may be able to get rid of certain maleffects that troubled
you. Expectant mothers will be blessed with lucky babies. A good period
for athletes and students. You may get assistance from your siblings and
from relatives of both your mother and father.
All in all this planetary change will bring very good results to
Mesha, Vrushaba, Gemini, Kanya, Vruchchika, Dhanu, Makara and Kumbha.
It will bring medium results to Kataka, and Meena. Though the
planetary change is supposed to bring bad results to Sinha and Thula
they too need not worry too much over it. By taking precautionary action
and avoiding unfavourable conditions you can make negative effects
With regard to the article titled “You and
your planets” which appeared on Sept.06, 2009 following
amendment has to be made about the prediction of 1996 Indian
“Lal Krishna Advani would never become the
PM though he was the party president. It is Atal Bihari
Vajpayee who would become the PM instead, but his tenure
would be limited only for 14 days. He resigned exactly in 13
days and Dewe Gowda took over.”
