A new awakening among mankind
Astrologers the world over attach much significance
to the entry of Neptune to the sign of Pisces on
April 4, the eve of the Astrological New Year. They
say with information gathered in hindsight, that
Neptune’s entry into his own House marks a new
awakening among the mankind which leads to an
awareness among peoples the world over that they are
an integral part of the world and of the greater
universe. This awareness which they describe as a
paradigm shift in human consciousness will gradually
lead to a breakdown of barriers that separate them.
Struggle between the righteous and evil forces
However, Lagna (Ascendant) of Sri Lanka’s natal
chart being Aquarius, the lunation is to fall in the
6th House of Cancer. As for Sri Lanka the Full Moon
transiting in the 6th house of Cancer while
receiving the special benign aspect of Jupiter will
usher in a favourable period for the working class
and the armed forces in the country. This occurrence
also signifies a marked improvement in the general
health of the nation.
The planetary position that should cause much
anxiety to people of this country is the four-planet
combination in Pisces, the 2nd House in Sri Lanka’s
natal chart which foreshadows a bitter struggle
between the righteous and the evil forces. Times
ahead are to be marked by enormous expenditures,
wastes of public money, unexpected losses and also
unexpected gains. Saturn’s aspect over the 2nd House

Gains from trade and commerce
However, there are strong indications that there
will be marked gains from trade and commerce.
A boost to country’s image
The 10th House of Sri Lanka’s natal chart is
receiving the special aspect of both Saturn and
Jupiter. The Jupiter’s aspect over this House
signifies a boost to the image and prestige of the
President, government and the nation among the
international community. However, the affliction by
Saturn points to possible scandals and allegations
that could cause damage to the image of the
government and lower its esteem abroad.
Corruption in public establishments
Pluto in the 12th House signifies corruption in
public establishments and prominent officials
falling into disgrace. The presence of Rahu in the
11th House foreshadows plots and conspiracies
against the establishment.
Mars’ aspect over the 9th House is too unfavourable
in that people could lose faith in the judiciary and
it is the responsibility of both the government and
the opposition to take measures to strengthen the
people’s faith in the law courts which is sine qua
non for the continuity of the democratic system.
