Aridra or Thiruvathira Njattuvela, the Solar Transit of Alpha Orionis, begins today. Mrigasira, which concluded tooday, was fraught with devastation. Mrigasira is ruled by the fiery Mars and hence the destruction ! We pray for the victims of Kedarnath tragedy. It is said that the astrologer is wise after the event, even though he can discern the heavenly signs !
Now Aridra is Roudra, another fiery constellation and the destructive aspect of the South West Monsoon can still wreak havoc.
We are de-Anaxagorasing our prayers. May not the SWM wreak destruction and may not the Monsoon Fury affect the overpopulated Indian subcontinent and the whole world !
