The date December 21, 2012 which marks the end of the Mayan calendar is being interpreted to mean the end of the world. The National Aeronautical and Space Administration, as if to support the 2012 doomsday forecast, is predicting a massive solar storm that could strike earth in 2012 (possibly a little later in 2013) with the force of a 100 million hydrogen bombs. Such a massive bombardment can certainly have a catastrophic effect and even destroy the earth. Do astrological factors justify such a possibility? The 2012 end-of-the-world prophesy appears to be resurfacing everywhere putting large sections of the world populace in panic mode. The date December 21, 2012 which marks the end of the Mayan calendar is being interpreted to mean the end of the world. The National Aeronautical and Space Administration, as if to support the 2012 doomsday forecast, is predicting a massive solar storm that could strike earth in 2012 (possibly a little later in 2013) with the force of a 100 million hydrogen bombs. Such a massive bombardment can certainly have a catastrophic effect and even destroy the earth. Do astrological factors justify such a possibility? We are now only in the first quarter of Kaliyuga and Pauranic references, which are increasingly drawing the attention of thinkers everywhere for the factual correctness of statements made therein, nowhere talk of such destruction. We may, therefore, rest assured that though the solar storm, if it should at all occur, may batter the earth and drastically influence weather conditions, can in no way contribute to or give credence to the 2012 doomsday forecasts. But can such solar activity trigger another tsunami for India as it happened on December 26, 2004 which year too ended with one of the most unusual eruptions on the Sun? Instruments aboard the Solar and Heliocentric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft recorded a gigantic coronal mass ejection (CME) and this burst of solar energy into space was said to be visible to scientists over a nine-hour stretch. This event on the solar surface occurring at about the same time the earthquake-tsunami struck Asia assumes importance in our understanding of the tsunami phenomenon. Text of the paper presented by Mrs. Gayatri Devi Vasudev, Editor, Modern Astrology at the World Conference on Mundane Astrology organised by the Sanathana Dharma Charitable Trust at Visakhapatnam, October 2-4, 2010. It is a clearly established fact solar activity and planetary alignments are connected. John Nelson*, a senior scientist with the Radio Corporation of America, who had been entrusted with the task of determining changes in solar activity found as far back as in the 1940’s that when Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn were in almost a straight line with the Sun or when they were at 900 angles from each other as seen from the Sun, solar activity increased. He also found that when the angles between these planets (as seen from the Sun) were 300, 600, 1200 or 1500 solar activity was low and conditions for radio reception and transmission were good. John Nelson, “Shortwave Radio Propogation Correlation with Planetary Position” RCA Review, March 1951. Before continuing with the solar activity angle, we would like to refer to the Mahabharata episode of Dwaraka being swallowed by the sea within seven days of Lord Krishna shedding his body. This also coincided with the dawn of Kali Yuga, a period that would see the erosion of Dharma, according to the Puranas. Apart from this scriptural angle, the time cycle that began now was called Kali Yuga, the cycle of Kali and was defined by the mean conjunction of all the planets at the First Point of Aries. This definition of Kali Yuga is given in the Surya Siddhanta and also by the great mathematician Aryabhata I. As students of astrology, we may note this conjunction would involve the major planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars apart from the minor planets and the luminaries and it would be at the junctional point of the watery sign Pisces and the fiery sign Aries. Astrologically speaking, such a unique celestial event could have far reaching repercussions on terrestrial affairs. Seen in this light, the tragedy at Prabhasa and the sea rushing in and submerging the city of Dwarakapuri were nothing but the result of that rare ashtagraha kuta (8-planet conjunction) occurring in the First Point of Aries. The celestial event triggered powerful subterranean seismic activity in the Indian ocean in the region of the Arabian sea throwing up gigantic tidal waves that flooded the coastal city of Dwarakapuri submerging it under the sea. The description given in the Mahabharata clearly fits with that of a tsunami whose play is only a matter of minutes but the havoc it causes can be massive. In other words, Dwaraka went under the sea as a result of a tsunami and further, this would be the first recorded tsunami in the history of India. A careful examination of this episode coinciding with the commencement of Kali Yuga provides the first astrological clues to the tsunami phenomenon. i) There was a multi-planet conjunction at the junctional point of watery Pisces and fiery Aries. ii) Jupiter and Saturn were in conjunction. iii) It was a New Moon day. iv) There was a solar eclipse on that date. v) The watery sign Pisces was under planetary stimulation.

A careful study of the earthquakes* occurring in the Indian subcontinent in the last 120 years shows just 3 severe earthquakes of magnitude 7 and above on the Richter scale in the region of the Indian ocean and which have been known to have led to tsunamis striking Tamil Nadu and Andaman and Nicobar islands. The charts (geocentric) and the heliocentric positions (Table) of planets on these dates seem to confirm the clues identified in the Dwaraka tsunami. Chart 1 is for the quake that truck Sumatra but whose impact was felt nearly 2000 kms away from the epicenter as far as in Tamil Nadu and the Andaman and Nicobar islands in the Indian ocean. In the other two cases, the time not being known, the planetary positions are for 5h, 30m. on those dates. A careful examination of all these 3 charts shows some common features. Chart 2 : December 31, 1881 at 5h. 30m at 12N 10.92E 04 (Andaman Nicobar) Saturn-Jupiter Nexus l A Saturn-Jupiter nexus appears absolutely necessary for a tsunami to hit the region about India. a) Chart 1: The December 26, 2004 tsunami had Saturn(R) at 20 54’ Cancer aspecting Jupiter at 240 11’ Virgo. b) Chart 2: The December 31, 1881 strike had Jupiter at 250 35’ in Aries and Saturn also in Aries at 140 49’ in conjunction. Both had just turned retrograde. c) Chart 3: The June 26, 1941 earthquake that hit the Indian ocean region with a tsunami saw Jupiter at 150 24’ Taurus in conjunction with Saturn at 20 16’ Taurus. While this factor alone cannot be attributed a tsunami-generating property, its recurrence in all the tsunamis that have struck the Tamil Nadu region cannot be ignored. Watery Signs : In all of these cases, a watery sign, one or more, gets stimulated by one or more planetary factors. Watery signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. a) Chart 1: December 26, 2004 – Mars, Venus, Mercury are in watery Scorpio. Saturn is in watery Cancer. b) Chart 2: December 31, 1881 – Rahu is in watery Scorpio at 160 34’ in Vargottama. This sign gets stimulated further by Rahu occupying it in Navamsa also. c) Chart 3: June 26, 1941 – The watery sign Pisces in stimulated by Mars being in it with Ketu. Venus is in another watery sign Cancer. Mars and Venus l The Martian element appears to also have a say for Mars as bhumiputra can be said to share astrological affinity with the Earth or bhumi. a) Chart 1: December 16, 2004: Mars at 70 46’ Scorpio is in conjunction with Venus at 190 10’ Scorpio – Conjunction. b) Chart 2: December 31, 1881: Mars(R) at 130 25’ Gemini is aspected by Venus at 60 16’ Sagittarius – Mutual Aspect. c) Chart 3: June 26, 1941: Mars at 40 44’ Pisces is aspecting Venus at 00 27’ Cancer. Venus is just shifting out of Gemini but the aspect is present sign-wise, Mars’ 4th house aspect having ended just a few hours before this date. Heliocentric Positions : The heliocentric position of Mars could also have a stimulating or exciting effect on the earth, both Mars and the earth being genetically astrologically connected. Further, it is important to note the fact the orbit of the earth around the Sun lies between those of Venus (inner planet) and Mars (outer planet). According to Parasara,When the course of a planet is disturbed from the normal path (perturbation) owning to the force of attraction (gravitation) of the Sun, Moon and other planets, there is a shaking of the planet. When planets occupy certain juxtapositions, their resultant gravitational force could disturb not only the normal path of another planet but also its interiors. When this happens to the earth, it could produce a shift in the tectonic plates to which modern science attributes earthquakes. Science can only tell you earthquakes are caused by the shifting of tectonic plates but cannot convincingly explain why the plates shift in the first place. According to Newton’s First Law of Motion, every body continues in its state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by an external force. If that be so, what is that external force which disturbs the state of rest or of motion of the tectonic plates except the planetary gravitational pulls! The heliocentric positions of Mars and Venus at these major subterranean earthquakes resulting in tsunamis are interesting. a) Chart 1: December 16, 2004: Mars at 170 11’ 03" Libra Venus at 17 09’ 14" Libra. (Mars-Venus in conjunction) b) Chart 2: December 31, 1881: Mars at 160 41’ 40" Gemini Venus at 260 30’ 06" Scorpio (Though no direct aspect is seen between Mars and Venus, it may be noted Venus is in a Mars-ruled sign Scorpio or Mars is the sign-dispositor of Venus). c) Chart 3: June 26, 1941: Mars at 180 22’ 25" Capricorn Venus at 170 09’ 14" Cancer. (Mars-Venus in Mutual Aspect) Watery Nakshatras l The Nakshatra occupied by the Moon at these tsunamis reveals another factor. Varahamihira in his Brihat Samhita, Chapter XXXII classifies the 27 (+1) Nakshatras into 4 groups. Vayu circle – Wind circle Agni circle – Fire circle Indra’s circle – Lightning – Rain circle Varuna’s circle – Sea-Ocean – Watery circle. While Vayu and Agni circle Nakshatras may be taken as dry Nakshatras, those coming under Indra and Varuna can be deemed watery Nakshatras. 1) Wind or Vayu circle: Uttaraphalguni, Hasta, Chitta, Swati, Punarvasu, Mrigasira and Aswini. 2) Fire or Agni circle: Pushyami, Krittika, Visakha, Bharani, Makha, Purvabhadrapada and Purvaphalguni. 3) Indra or Water circle: Abhijit (210 27’ 34"), Sravana, Dhanista, Rohini, Jyeshta, Uttarashada and Anuradha. 4) Varuna or Water circle: Revati, Purvashadha, Aridra, Aslesha, Moola, Uttarabhadrapada and Satabhisha. According to Brihat Samhita (XXXII-22), “An earthquake of the Varuna circle is said to kill those that are dependent on the seas and rivers; and it will lead to excessive rains” apart from other results. In other words, these Nakshatras of the Varuna and Indra circles may be deemed to play a significant role in tsunamis and subterranean earthquakes. The Table of heliocentric positions for these 3 dates shows the Moon is respectively in Aridra (Varuna), Moola (Varuna) and Moola (Varuna) – all watery constellations. The Moon being only a satellite of the Earth, his heliocentric position can be taken to be the same as the earth’s heliocentric position. So at all these tsunamis, the Earth touches a watery or Varuna circle Nakshatra Taking up Chart 4 for December 21, 2012, we find: i) The Jupiter-Saturn nexus which appears to be decisive in identifying tsunamis on the Indian peninsula is missing. ii) Rahu, Venus, Mercury are in the watery sign Scorpio. So also the Moon. iii) Venus is in a Martian sign Scorpio while Mars is exalted. iv) The Moon occupies Revati in a watery or Varuna circle Nakshatra. v) No heliocentric Mars-Venus connection is present. These factors can produce cyclonic storms and seismic activity on the Indian subcontinent and the Indian coastline but the absence of a Jupiter-Saturn connection rules out a tsunami of destructive magnitude hitting India in 2012. Mars, Saturn Mercury and Venus are in angles or at 900 from one another heliocentrically on December 21, 2012 (see Table). But this gets toned down by Jupiter’s trinal aspect on Mars. The intensity of solar activity going by John Nelson’s findings in this period is therefore greatly reduced and may not be as severe as anticipated by scientists. While the year 2012 will have its quota of natural calamities there will be no end of the world kind of destruction or havoc. Least of all, a tsunami of the magnitude of the December 2004 one on the Indian coastal lines
