Ganesha says why Hepatitis-B virus has attacked Gujarat

With the onslaught of the killer Hepatitis-B virus in Sabarkantha's Modasa taluka gathering speed in the last few days, Gujarat is currently battling a severe health scare. The virus has reportedly claimed many lives, and with fresh cases being registered daily, the situation is worsening. On February 23, the toll from the deadly epidemic touched 56.

Greek physician Hippocrates (460-380 BC) had propounded that astrology is an integral part of the scientific healing process. Bearing this in mind, Ganesha throws light on the astrological factors that might have led to the spread of the Hepatitis-B virus. The divine Lord further alerts people in those regions and towns that promptly need to go on a massive prevention drive.

Jupiter is a natural 'benefic' (beneficial planet is called 'benefic' in astrological terms). Jupiter's colour is yellow and it rules the liver in the human body. Rahu – the North Node – is a Chhaya Grah (Shadowy planet) and it plays a vital role in astrology because it is Moon's Node.Currently, Jupiter and Rahu are conjunct in Capricorn, the sign ruled by Saturn. Jupiter gets debilitated in Capricorn, thus becoming vulnerable to diseases like jaundice.

Mars rules blood and related anatomical zones. Though it is exalted in Capricorn at present, it is afflicted by Rahu, apart from being weak due to debilitation in the Navmansha. This also indicates spread of blood-related diseases.

Mercury rules the sixth sign of the natural zodiac Virgo, which is also afflicted by Rahu, thereby increasing chances of diseases. Sun, the source of all energy, is currently transiting through Rahu's Constellation Shattara and is receiving strong affliction of Retrograde Saturn positioned in Leo, forming an opposition to Sun. This factor also indicates weakness and low energy levels.

As per Sarvatobhadra Chakra, the four planets transiting through Shravan Constellation form Vedha with Magha Constellation, which is why jaundice struck Modasa. Considering the planetary afflictions and Vedhas, Ganesha feels that people living in Deesa (Gujarat), Dungarpur (Rajasthan) and areas around Deodar (Banaskantha, Gujarat) will have to take stringent measures to prevent the spread of the Hepatitis-B virus.

Good luck and may Lord Ganesha keep everyone healthy.
