Floods Top 2013 World Disaster Bill So Far
“Inland flooding that affected parts of Europe, Asia, Canada and Australia caused about 47 percent of overall global losses and 45 percent of insured losses, said the leading reinsurance company based in Munich, Germany. The deadliest disaster out of 460 recorded “natural hazard events” worldwide was a series of flash floods in northern India and Nepal that killed more than 1,000 people in June after early and exceptionally heavy monsoon rains.

…Debate in climate research is currently focusing on what the causes of such changes in weather patterns could be and what role climate change might play in this,” he said. “But it is naturally not possible to explain single events on this basis.”
Deadly tornado aftermath in Oklahoma
“The second most expensive disaster was a series of severe tornadoes that hit the United States in May, especially a maximum-strength tornado in Oklahoma.”

There may be many more events as the Rahu Saturn conjunction, aspected by Jupiter, intensifies this summer and fall. As of July 27, 2013, these headlines stood out for me:
- The widest tornado ever recorded in the U.S. wreaked havoc on Oklahoma.
- Heat Wave May Threaten World’s Hottest Temp. Record.
- The world as a whole experienced one of the hottest June’s ever recorded.
- In June 2013, Alberta, Canada experienced catastrophic flooding described as worst in history.
- Europe’s floods top 2013 disaster bill, according to Munich Re.
- China readies for typhoon and deadly floods.
- India reels under rain, floods: more than 500,000 people displaced.
The planetary perspective…
Jupiter in Gemini in Ardra Nakshatra – gives the juice!
According to Vedic Astrology – Jupiter is transiting Ardra nakshatra – known as “the howler”!
When we think of tornadoes, what comes to mind? A gentle breeze or howling gales, bringing disaster in its wake?
You’re right. An almost unimaginable beast of a storm hit the mid-western U.S.A., leaving an incalculable effect on the people and environment in that area in late May 2013. It’s estimated that peak winds reached 210 miles per hour (310 km. per hour) in the deadly Oklahoma tornado. Touching down for a brief 37 minutes, the tornado cut a swath through a populated area of 17 miles (32 km.) and was about 1.3 miles wide at its peak (2.1 km).
How is this related to Jupiter?
Jupiter – the planet of expansion, a normally benefic influence is currently transiting Gemini constellation – sign 3. No problems there, right? Well not exactly…
One of the nakshatras (or star clusters) Jupiter transits as it moves forward through Gemini is Ardra Nakshatra is owned by Rahu (the north node of the moon – 6 degrees 40′ – 20 degrees Gemini). Ardra’s symbol is the tear drop, the color green, and is referred to as the fat or wet one. The deity of Ardra nakshatra is Rudra – the howler and bringer of storms, tears and tragedy.
Right now, Jupiter is transiting Ardra Nakshatra (late June – September, 2013)
Jupiter, the big, expansive and normally well-behaved planet that it is, by transiting Ardra nakshatra, is actually increasing the intensity of storm patterns currently on earth. (More details provided later on in this article…)
Equally intense have been flash floods and heat waves in June/July 2013
In the Uttarakhand area in India (a well-known pilgrimage retreat) about 40,000 were stranded in a flash flood, and over 1,000 killed. Monsoon rainstorms impeded rescue efforts and lead to further loss of life. Parts of Canada, Australia and Europe have experienced similar if not as extreme flooding conditions. North America has broken heat wave records, as a “jet stream — a fast-moving river of air at airliner altitudes that is responsible for steering weather systems — formed the shape of a massive, slithering snake with what meteorologists refer to as a deep “ridge” across the Western states, and an equally deep trough setting up across the Central and Eastern states. ” … according to Climate Central on June 28th, 2013.
Why is Rahu in Swati Nakshtra complicating things?
Rahu in Swati Nakshatra is with Saturn in Sign 7. Swati’s deity is Vayu – the wind, and is an unstable, wavering nakshatra, owned by Rahu.
Rahu is currently conjunct Saturn in an air sign (constellation Libra, sign 7), owned by Rahu, aspecting Jupiter in Ardra.
In Vedic Astrology language this means that malefic Rahu is aspecting benefic Jupiter, and bringing his bullying friend Saturn along with him for support. Both malefic energies (Rahu and Saturn) are coming from a wind-driven location (they’re both in Swati – the wind)
This changes normally happy Jupiter into an afflicted character – not acting in his normally good and upstanding way. In the same way that two bullies in a room with a gentle person can alter the behavior of the sweet personality – taking his behavior to a lower level, Rahu and Saturn are afflicting Jupiter. Another concept may clarify this further: the worm – in this case, Rahu as the cosmic snake, and a very big worm! – is spoiling the apple.
Interestingly enough, even the heat wave weather patterns (above) took the shape of “a large slithering snake”!
Rahu also owns the nakshatra Jupiter is transiting, right?
Exactly! Not only is Rahu transiting a Rahu Nakshatra (Swati) it is also aspecting Jupiter in a Rahu nakshatra (Ardra). Not good! This means that in a way, Rahu is aspecting Rahu and intensifies things even more.
So, first we have Jupiter aspected by Rahu (which afflicts Jupiter). And then, Jupiter also aspects (or directs its energy towards) Rahu and Saturn together in Libra. Jupiter’s expanding energy is magnifying the malefic energy of the Rahu/Saturn conjunction in Libra. (Making the bad boys stronger.)
During the months of July – October, Jupiter’s influenced quite negatively by Rahu and his buddy Saturn, and in turn is passing that negative energy back to Rahu and Saturn. Because Rahu and Saturn are in an air signs and a nakshatra owned by wind – powerful storms of all kinds can result. Flash floods, heat waves, and extreme climate changes can be experienced globally. Economic upsets resulting from greed can also result. (I go into more details of this in the article I refer you to in Juicy Details, below.)
In response to the…” debate in climate research is currently focusing on what the causes of such changes in weather patterns could be and what role climate change might play in this…but it is naturally not possible to explain single events on this basis.”
I would suggest that there are very real and tangible explanations for the results we are experiencing in climatic change at this time. Definitely, for those looking for a deeper understanding – it’s all in the stars, and the dramatic planetary play, under the cosmic sky. These intense planetary combinations are giving rise to visible results here on earth, and we as individuals and collectively are experiencing them.
The ticket with these rougher combinations is to work with the energy and not against them. Prepare for a bit of a wild ride, and maintain a measure of equanimity, knowing that some purification is happening and everything will work out in the end. For those in the know, there are ways to become enormously successful at this time. I provide details of this in the article highlighted in Juicy Details below.
For many, this may not be the best time to travel, invest heavily, or take risks. It may be best to ride out these more dramatic times in a settled calm, more inward environment – if possible.
I personally find daily deep meditation is a great way to find peace in stressful times – a rainbow in the midst of the storms of life. Meditation is a perfect way to detach from the frenzy of the world, and settle into a serene place, deep within.

All of these wild shifts in climate and storms are closely connected by the afflicted transit of Jupiter in Ardra nakshatra (the howler), aspecting Rahu/Saturn conjunction in Swati (owned by Rahu and the wind).
