When will Corona end? A rational astrologer’s view

Jaydip Chakrabarti


Hold your breath, as you are ready to go for a rational astrological journey to know 'When will Corona end?"


Corona pandemic made the year 2020 a dreadful and challenging year for all. With the new strain of Covid19 looming large, the big question is whether 2021 will also witness similar virulent and turbulent Corona induced incidents.


Anish-Prasad-Rational-AstrologyA clear and analytical reply to this query comes from an unexpected multi-talented person –IGP Anish Prasad who is a leading astrologer too who explains astrology from a different premise—rationality and science.


Besides, he did his B. Tech from the Indian Institute of Technology (BHU), Varanasi followed by a post-graduation in Management. He also holds a Diploma in Cyber Law (International) and a Chevening Cyber Security Fellowship from Cranfield University, Defence Academy of the United Kingdom. In the past, this multi-faceted person even served as a Software Engineer at a multinational Company. He is also a Marathon runner with international recognition in his kitty. And this person is a successful top-level cop serving under Tripura Government. For his contribution to the subject he was conferred with ‘Jyotish Ratna’ by the All India Federation of Astrologers’ Societies.


In quest for an answer of ‘When will Coronavirus End’, Anish Prasad posted a well researched Astrological analysis in his globally popular rationalastro.org on April 29, 2020 – at a time when the worst period, in India, was yet to begin.


In the write-up, Prasad analyzed planetary combinations of the past pandemic situation and then detailed Astrological aspects of the present Corona pandemic.


He started with The Antonine Plague and went ahead with technical and intricate analysis of Guru-Chandal Yoga and other planetary combinations to find nature’s plan for people’s sufferings.


He noted, “Any connection of Rahu, Ketu, Saturn, Mercury with Taurus, Gemini, Scorpio or Sagittarius is a combination of widespread mysterious diseases related to lungs and skin”. He found almost similar planetary combinations prevailed during The Justinian Plague that killed about 10 per cent of the world’s population.  


Continuing his analysis, Prasad discussed planetary combinations during The Black Death (1347 AD) and The Spanish Flu (1918 AD).


Finally, Anish Prasad picked up the Coronavirus pandemic situation. He found, “Rahu and Ketu both are exalted.  Sun - the Karaka of immunity does not show strength. In the Rasi chart, it is in the 8th house of mysterious diseases”.


He observed, “outbreak of Corona turned pandemic due to some “weird and uncommon Planetary Transits” on December 25 and December 26 2019”.


Looking at India, Anish Prasad wrote, “first reported case was noted in India on January 30, 2020, we see that Rahu and Ketu are exalted. Since the Rahu-Ketu axis is affecting Gemini, the respiratory system, lungs etc. of the people are vulnerable from this disease. Gemini transit of Rahu has never been auspicious for India. Previously, Rahu entered Gemini in Nov-2009 during which the Swine Flu peaked, Anish Prasad wrote.


On the big issue as to how long people would continue to suffer, Anish Prasad argued, “ Ketu will enter into Moola Nakshatra on January 16, 2020 and exit on September 23, 2020 shifting the Rahu-Ketu axis from Gemini to Taurus”.


He predicted that this shift could be considered helpful in the global fight against the coronavirus. Thus, astrologically after September 23, 2020, we are looking at much better times than what we are currently suffering, Anish Prasad commented.


Let’s check with covid19india.org website data on Covid19. Data reveals, number of the confirmed case in India soared to 97,860 on September 16, 2020 and thereafter it started to fall. Importantly, the falling trend sustained since after September 23, 2020. 


Post-September 23, 2020, it might come and go. And before April-2022 when the Rahu-Ketu axis finally leaves Taurus and Scorpio, the world would have effectively controlled the virus.


So hold your breath and remain cautious at least till April 2022.
