It is only a few days since I wrote about a strong co-relation between the recent transit of the planet Jupiter and life changing events around the world.
As ever, I had been a keen observer of the celestial movements and how those movements influence my life, hoping that I can learn from the pattern and prepare myself for the future, if not change it to my liking.
I have learned that, in rapid succession to the relocation of the planet Jupiter in April, the celestial malefic twins of the Vedic astrology, Rahu and Kethu were changing their positions in the second half of May, the exact date and time being depend on different calculations.
I didn’t know what this meant to the world, but guessed that personally their new position might not bring in any good news.
Sadly, though to the satisfaction of my curiosity, my hunch has turned out o be not too far from the reality.
What has greeted me last week was the news of the relatively unexpected death of a person very close to a dear friend.
All right, it is only a loss to a friend, not to me, but it is all depends how you feel about your friends, I suppose. Actually talking to my friend, made me sad for the loss of my close friend.
This was followed, two days back, by the demise of another person close to the same friend, who practically had the same relationship with my friend. It was a cardiac arrest, not expected at all of a person my friend wanted to visit, but couldn’t for reasons only destiny decides.
Again, it was a deep pain I had to share with my friend, though I knew the departed only through my friend.
But destiny can’t be changed merely because you don’t believe in astrology.
To my great sadness, this morning, while speaking to my relations thousands of miles away, I gathered that two of my own cousins, who I knew very closely, passed away in the last week. Demises, though not entirely unexpected, which could have been averted by proper medical attention.
Am I to blame my stars? If I were to reason that all this was just coincidence and above logic and must be set aside as rubbish, I was compelled to put this down on a piece of paper due to the following.
All this sad news this morning, made me feel somewhat restless and unhappy in a way I can’t describe. I was felt restless.
I felt the urge to the urge to call some of my elderly relations as if to make sure that they were OK and and keeping well. But things didn't improve, I was still feeling uneasy.
As if by instinct, I tried to reach out to another close friend, someone I haven’t spoken to for ages though we spent my days in college together.
Guess what? He said he was answering the call from an ambulance! An ambulance in which he was feeling very lonely, keeping company to the dead body of his mother in law, being carried from the hospital on the way home.
Now what do you call this? A miracle of sorts or the stars having their say!
It is very difficult to describe the few moments of emotional exchange we had,of meeting and being together, at the time of such sense of loss.
