Astrological analysis of the COVID-19 lockdown

Understand why the Kaala Sarpa Yog in transit triggered the unprecedented global crisis.

agre rāhau adhau ketau sarve madhya grahaḥ|

The above sentence is in Sanskrit, and it means, ‘Rahu in front and Ketu at the end, and all planets between (them).

Planetary transits are a significant aspect of Vedic Astrology. You can read my detailed blog on transits and their impact here.  

When calamity strikes us, it can be a personal crisis or a larger crisis that affects everybody. The lockdown during COVID-19 in 2020 was unprecedented. Rarely has humanity been told to not get out of the house and remain in a state of suspended animation. What caused the lockdown in astrological terms?  

It was because of the Kaala Sarpa Yog in transit. Kaala Sarpa occurs in a chart when the seven planets, Saturn, Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Moon, and Sun, are hemmed between Rahu and Ketu. It creates what is known in Vedic Astrology as a Kaala Sarpa Yog

Kaala Sarpa Yog in transit

The above chart for 2020 shows all planets hemmed between the nodes Rahu and Ketu, causing bandhana in Sanskrit. Bandhana means bondage or being tied up, circumstances akin to being in jail. Watch out for the 2022 Chaitra Shukla Pratipada chart which has similarities too.

The Kaala Sarpa yog in transit in 2020 created that sense of constriction:

  • All seven planets between the nodes Rahu & Ketu.
  • All planets between the signs Sagittarius and Gemini.
  • Jupiter’s transit in Capricorn on March 30, 2020, made it worse.
  • Post-May 4, 2020, the situation will improve.
  • Once Mars transits to Aquarius (May 4, 2020), the impact of Kala Sarpa Yoga will lessen, but it will not completely go away. 
  • 2022 is like 2020 too, hence it will see a resurgence of a virus though not as deadly since Jupiter will be in pieces/Meena zodiac sign most of the year.
  • Yamayoga in 2022 too will give different complications of war, fuel prices and food crises.

We also need to understand at this point that different plants have different speeds of transit and hence different impacts on our lives.

Saturn, Jupiter, Mars & the nodes don’t move frequently hence its impact is studied closely. The planet transit chart below will help you understand it better.
