Sun Transit in Leo, These Zodiac Signs Get Lucky!

Sun transit in Leo brings major life-changing alterations! Read how the transit of the King of Planets, Sun, will impact your life.


The Soul of the Universe Sun is also known as the King of the Navagrahas. Its light provides life to all the living creatures and nurtures them to become strong and healthy. Therefore, Lord Sun is also hailed as Surya Narayan, because Lord Narayan is only known as the Nurturer of the world. The Sun is also the source of light for the Moon, as the Moon’s surface reflects light from it. In Vedic Astrology, the Sun signifies father, government and health. Hence, its benefic placement in one’s kundli leads to higher designation, good health and government job. Ruby or Manikya gemstone can be worn to strengthen its placement in a kundli

Attain Benefic Effects of Sun by Wearing Bel Mool

Planet Sun in a Kundli


The Sun is considered to be the “soul” of the Universe, as it is the primary source of light as well as life. Therefore, whenever the kundli of a native is examined, the placement and strength of the Sun are foremost analysed. This planet governs the East direction and rules over the zodiac sign Leo as per Vedic Astrology, which is the fifth sign in Kaal Purush Kundali.

Sun is considered to be fully exalted at 10 degrees in Aries and fully debilitated at 10 degrees in Libra. The occurrence of seasons is based on the movement of the Sun itself. Any planet coming closer to the Sun becomes combust at a certain degree, i.e. its influence becomes subjected to the Sun.

As this planet signifies royalty, fame and repute in a person’s life, therefore its placement is foremost evaluated in a kundli. The level of respect and confidence earned by a native can be analyzed by the position of Sun in his/her kundli. Also, its relation with other planets also impact the lives of natives.

If Sun seems weak or debilitated in one’s kundli, then Surya Yantra can be installed to strengthen or pacify it. As Sunday is ruled by the Sun, then this yantra must be worshipped according to the rituals early in the morning before 8 AM on the same day and placed in the house’s altar facing East. It must be regularly worshipped to attain desired results.

If Sun is placed favourably in a native’s kundli, then not only they share a happy relationship with their father, but their father too attains great fame and success in life. Also, you remain healthy and achieve a higher position in your workplace.

Time of Transit


Sun, which emits light to the world, has entered in its own zodiac sign Leo from Cancer on Saturday, 17 August 2019 around 12:47 afternoon and will remain posited here till Tuesday, 17 September 2019, around 12:43 afternoon. As this planet is posited in its own sign, its favourable impact will be seen on all other signs. However, Sun posited beneficially in a sign garners positive results and vice versa. Let’s read its effects and know what is up or you in the near future.

Chances of Job Promotion


On 17 August, Sun will enter Leo from Cancer zodiac sign and conjunct with Mars and Venus already present there. Sun and Venus are inimical in nature, whereas Venus and Mars are friendly. As a result, the conjunction of Sun-Mars will lead to fruitful results in the workplace and there are chances of job promotion. However the presence of Venus suggests that you should treat women well and remain away from any kind of gossip within the office. Those preparing for competitive exams for government job may attain success in their endeavours.

Rise in Women-Related Incidents in the Country


Sun and Mars come under the fire element, whereas planet Venus is feminine in nature and signifies beauty, femininity and luxury. Therefore, with Sun transiting in Leo, there can be a rise in the incidents taking place against women.

Sun Transit in Leo will Increase National Issues


Both Sun & Mars represents the Fire element. Amongst all planets, the Sun is said to be the King and Mars as the “Commander-in-Chief”. As a result, our country will remain successful in defeating its opponents during this period and take drastic measures against intruders and terrorists. However, an increase in fire-related incidents and accidents is likely to happen.

Venus Transit in Leo Will Bring Opportunities For These Natives!

Venus transit in Leo will conjunct with Mars! Know the effects of Venus transiting in Leo on your zodiac sign and find out the opportunities and challenges coming in the way.


Venus is considered to be the brightest planet in the universe and mainly signifies all resources, happiness and luxuries. It mainly represents love relations, materialistic comforts and intimate relations. As Jupiter is known as the Dev Guru or Guru of Gods, Venus is given the status of the Daitya Guru or Guru of Demons. As per Vedic Astrology, Venus is considered as an auspicious planet and its favourable placement in a kundli makes a person enriched with all the luxuries and pleasures as well as knowledge.


Effects of Venus in a Kundli


In Vedic Astrology, Venus represents femininity, and is the epitome of beauty and attractiveness. If Venus is strongly posited in one’s kundli, s/he remains prosperous and doesn’t miss out on luxuries and comforts. Venus is the significator of marriage, woman, enjoyment, luxury, decoration, artistic work, acting, literature etc. On the other hand, if the planet Venus is weak or inauspicious in one’s kundli, one lacks wealth, love and material comforts.

A native under the influence of Venus prefers eating good food and trying out new cuisines and focuses more on maintaining an attractive personality. Such natives love dressing up, wearing good clothes, eating favourite foods, going out, watching movies and much more. Such a person seems readily inclined towards gadgets such as mobiles, tabs, laptops, and vehicles, watches and glasses. Use rose and white colour often in case you wish to strengthen the position of Venus in your kundli. 

In case you are undergoing adverse situations, you can follow Venus remedies and chant Venus Mantra to get rid of its malefic effects. A weak Venus can result in the native suffering from venereal diseases and his/her marital life remains under the weather.

Apart from being an auspicious planet, Venus is friendly with the planets Mercury & Saturn but considers Sun & Moon to be his enemies. It remains posited in a sign for about 23 days and is known as the Morning Star. This planet is transiting on Friday, 16 August 2019, around 20:23 at night in Leo, which is governed by Sun and will move into Virgo on Tuesday, 10 September 2019, around 01:24 after midnight.

15 August: Indian Independence Day

15 August – every citizen will celebrate the Indian Independence Day! Discover the country’s future through its kundali. With this blog, on the 73rd anniversary of India’s independence, we are astrologically predicting what the future holds, in the upcoming year for our beloved country.





15 August is a great day for all Indians because on this day we overthrew the rule of the Britishers becoming an independent country. Hence, we ever since that day in 1947, we celebrate 15 August as Independence day, every year. On this day, every citizen of the country hoists the tricolour flag and feels proud to be an Indian. This is our 73rd Independence Day, and each year we ponder upon our achievements in the past year while planning on doing better on the weak parts in the coming year. 

In the days past, we have achieved many significant accomplishments in various fields, ranging from becoming Nuclear powered to sending the Chandrayaan-2. Not only did this bring India almost at par with most of the top countries in the field of Science. There have been significant improvements in not only in the field of information technology as well as infrastructure. Numerous great plans like the Swachh Bharat Mission, Digital India, Mgnrega, Sukanya, and Sukanya Samriddhi Account, etc. are prevalent in the country. They have been very beneficial for the countrymen. 

However, on the flip side, the rapidly growing population, problem of clean drinking water, corruption, environmental imbalance, different types of pollution, economic inequality, communalism, etc. are the fields that still need work. We hope that soon, our beloved country will lead in all domains, moving ahead progressively, improving and developing further. While challenges will continue to be, just as before, however, they will be defeated with our strong will power. As a matter of fact, several other foreign countries will also bow before the unity and integrity of India.

15 August: What Does India’s Kundali Say On Its Independence Day


In order to discover what the future has in store for a person or country, we need to study their birth chart, because the planetary positions in the kundali mainly describe the same. Therefore, on India’s 73rd Independence Day, we have created India’s natal chart to determine what the coming year holds for Indians:

Independence was declared on 15 August 1947, at midnight (12:00); therefore, we have taken this as the birth details for India’s kundli and the following has been created:



In the kundali above, made after India attained independence on 15 August, some notable facts apparent are:

  • India’s birth chart is of Taurus ascendant and the Lord of First house, Venus, is posited in the third house.
  • No planet is retrograde, and only Venus and Saturn are debilitated.
  • The zodiac sign of India is Cancer and its Lord, Moon is posited in Cancer, in the Pushya Nakshatra.
  • Presently, India is undergoing the major period (mahadasha) of Moon and sub-period (antardasha) of Jupiter.
  • Moon, which is the Lord of the third house, is posited in the same house and the nakshatra of Saturn. Thus, it will bear fruits of Saturn as well, who is already a yoga karaka planet for this kundali. Hence, it can be said that the Moon’s state will take India to great heights.
  • Jupiter, Lord of eighth and eleventh house in the kundali, is posited in the seventh house and its own nakshatra, Vishakha; and is aspecting the tenth, twelfth, and second houses as well.
  • It is evident from the aforementioned planetary positions that nothing will stop India’s ascent in the world as it progresses further. However, there will also be several challenges for our beloved country.
  • Apart from this, taking a look at the yearly kundli, we can see that Libra ascendant is rising and Muntha is in the eighth house.
  • The Lord of both, Yearly Ascendant Natal Chart (Varsh Lagna Kundali) and Muntha, is Venus that is posited in the tenth house.
  • In the tenth house, Sun and Mercury placed in the inimical sign Cancer, are indicating challenges for the ruling party.
  • The Muntha of the eighth house also creates several adverse conditions.
  • In such a scenario, the present government may have to go through a variety of odd situations. Moreover, they may even face opposition in some places.


India Will Emerge Stronger And Powerful


Retrograde Saturn is transiting in the zodiac sign Sagittarius and is posited in the sixth house from the Moon sign. On the other hand, Jupiter is posited in the sign of Scorpio and is in the fifth house from the moon sign and twelfth house from Saturn. This indicates sound decision making. The retrograde Saturn is even more powerful now, as it now contains Chesta Bala. In such a situation, India will stand firm and face all the problems and challenges in front of it. As a result, it will emerge as an influential nation in the world. 

War Like Situations Can Occur


Saturn will remain in retrograde motion till 18 September. Where on the one hand, it will give India strength; on the other, it can also create a warlike situation. However, all opposing forces will be decimated with full power, and this will be a milestone in the country’s development.

India’s Finances Will Improve


The aforementioned planetary positions indicate that the government of India will work primarily on the Tax system of the country and make all efforts to strengthen our economy. In this, several policies will also be made to increase the capital base of all public sector banks even though the opposition makes strong objections to the same. 

Political Equations Will Change


There will be several changes apparent in the field of politics, which will be opposed by insiders, whereas some outsiders will talk about supporting the same. There will be a fierce clash between the ideologies of the opposition and the ruling party. There may be some delay in the work of prioritizing the national interest, but it will then attain speed after September. The boastfulness and bragging of national leaders can lead to many kinds of problems.

New Schemes In The Country’s Interest Announced


Regardless of some challenging situations possibly arising, the ruling party will announce many public-friendly schemes. Additionally, attempts will be made to ensure that they are duly followed. It is evident that they are working on some new schemes. However, it should be noted that specific tax schemes may be implemented which will be slightly problematic in the beginning.

Need To Be Wary Of Health Problems


Despite the numerous good things happening, one needs to remain cautious this year. There is a possibility of Indians suffering from contagious/infectious/transmissible diseases as well as other illnesses in the coming days. Due to this reason, the government will make efforts to improve the health issues, yet, despite that, the citizens will remain troubled.

A Big Leap In The Field Of Technology


Saturn will enter the zodiac sign of Capricorn at the beginning of the next year. That time will prove to be favourable for foreign trade in the country as well as substantial progress in the field of information technology is indicated. Jupiter will also be transiting through the zodiac sign Sagittarius, due to which Anti-national elements will be challenged, and efficient plans will be implemented. 

From this perspective, it is evident that India will move ahead on the path of progress, becoming one of the greatest countries out there. The youth of the country will get new opportunities, and the development of technology will be increasingly more than usual. New schemes pertaining to health and education will be implemented which will benefit all the countrymen.

This 15 August, on the 73rd Independence Day, let us all take an oath to make our country thriving, vibrant, and prosperous by making all possible positive efforts in this direction. Let us promise to make the country clean with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, and follow the law and order. Only then will our developing country will finally become a developed country.

We Wish All Our Indian Brothers and Sisters A Happy 73rd Independence Day!

When is Raksha Bandhan 2019? 


Raksha Bandhan, states the Hindu Panchang will be celebrated on the Shukla Paksha’s Purnima during the month of Sawan. On this day, Rakhis are tied on the brother's wrist by the sisters and their longevity is sought. The brothers in turn also promise to protect their respective sisters.

Raksha Bandhan ’s Importance 


Raksha Bandhan celebrations display the bond of love which exists between siblings . Lord Rama’s father, King Dashrath, laid the foundation of worshipping Shravan Kumar's on this day, which is why, Shravan Kumar is also worshiped on this day. Some other stories are also prevalent, which increases the relevance of this festival to a great extent. To begin with, it is believed that Goddess Mahalaxmi tied Rakhi on the wrist of demon king Bali, which initiated the prevalence of this festival. Along with this , it is also said that on this day, Lord Jupiter and the other learned sages created a protection band and tied it around the wrist of Lord Indra and then gained victory over the demons. This particular event also gives prominence to this festival and increases its valour. 

The queen of the Pandavas, Queen Draupadi tore a part of her saree to tie it around Lord Krishna’s hand to stop the blood that was oozing out from it. Then and there, Lord Krishna made a promise to her that he would offer her protection from each and every kind of danger. He kept his promise and came to her rescue when she was disrobed by the evil Dushashan. This is another legend associated with the festival of Raksha Bandhan and increases its relevance. 

All of the legends mentioned above give validation to the significance of Rakhi and throw light on its pious nature. It is not only a religious festivity but also an emotional one, as on this day the internal love of a brother increases, which he has for his sister. The reality is that the bond of a brother and sister is such a pious one which exhibits love and nothing else. Thus, we should joyously take part in the celebrations of this festival. 

Bhadra Kaal During Raksha Bandhan 


Bhadra is specially taken into account while tying the Rakhi during Raksha Bandhan . But, this rakhi 2019 is free from the period of Bhadra, which is why sisters can tie the holy thread on the wrist of their brothers during any time of the day.


Raksha Bandhan Puja Rituals


  • On the day of Rakhi, wake up early in the morning and wear fresh new clothes after taking a bath. 
  • Conduct the morning rituals as per your religious considerations.
  • In some places, the images of Shravan Kumar are drawn and worshipped.
  • Additionally, Sita Ram is written on some walls inside the house and food items are offered to the images. 
  • After this, take items like roli, sandalwood, rice or akshat on a palette. Also, place the rakhi which is supposed to be tied around the brother’s wrist and some sweets. 
  • After the completion of the above mentioned tasks, put a tilak on your brother’ forehead and tie the rakhi around the wrist of his right hand. 
  • While tying the holy thread, it is recommended to recite the chant given below. 
yena baddho balī rājā dānavendro mahābala:।
tena tvāṃ abhibandhāmi rakṣe mā cala mā cala।

येन बद्धो बली राजा दानवेन्द्रो महाबल:। 
तेन त्वां अभिबन्धामि रक्षे मा चल मा चल। 
  • Perform the aarti of your brother after tying the rakhi and feed him sweets with your own hands. 
  • Immediately, your brother can gift you a present or some money and touch your feet. 
  • Primarily, a sister prays for her brother’s longevity while tying the rakhi and the brother promises to protect her from mishaps.
  • Thus, the joyous celebrations of Raksha Bandhan take place in the prescribed manner mentioned above.

Raksha Bandhan celebrations to Merge with other Festivals 


This year i.e. in 2019, Rakhi will be observed on the 15th Of August, which is definitely a very special day for our nation as we were granted independence on this day. Needless to say, Independence Day celebrations will also take place with great zeal and fervour. Apart from this, this day will be also be marked as Gayatri Jayanti, Haygrib Jayanti, a celebration of Lord Vishnu’s incarnation, Shravana Purnima Vrat, Yajurveda Upakarma and Sanskrit Diwas. Thus, the festivities of Rakhi will remain quite special. On the occasion of Independence Day, the soldiers serving the nation will receive Rakhis from their dear sisters. It is a great epitome of the unending love and responsibility that one has towards his/her country. 

Shravana Purnima Fast 


The Hindu Panchang and Hindu religion gives a significant amount of importance to Purnima Tithi as on this day, the Moon is in its full form and appears completely round. Also, the fast kept on this day is considered equally auspicious to the Ekadashi and Pradosh Vrat. The Purnima which falls in the month of Sawan is known as Shravana Purnima or Shravani Purnima. The Northern and central part of India hail this occasion as Kajri Purnima. In the current year, the fast of Shravana Purnima will be observed on 15 August 2019 and its auspicious Muhurat is noted down below.

                      Shravana Purnima Vrat Muhurat 
Purnima Tithi Begins At 15:47:44 on 14 August 2019 in the afternoon
Purnima Tithi Ends 
At 18:01:02 on 15 August 2019 in the evening


According to various religious texts and customs, the traditions of taking baths in holy rivers, performing austeration and making donations, have great relevance on this day. In some states of our country, it is also known as Narali or Nariyal Purnima. Meanwhile, some natives also perform tasks like Janeu Pujan( sacred thread ceremony) and Upanayan Sanskar on this day only. If the state of Moon is not favourable in your Kundli, then it is advised to observe this fast as the vrat kept during Purnima has the greatest eligibility to wipe out the malefic effects of Moon. Wedded duos who have only one child should definitely observe the fast of Shravana Purnima. 

We wish you a joyous and prosperous Raksha Bandhan. We hope that this blog on Rakhi and Sharavana Purnima will provide you with beneficial insights. All the very best for your future!!
