Powerful Solar eclipse and Summer Olympics 2008- Beijing

The opening ceremony of the Beijing Summer Olympics starts at 8:08 PM local time on August 8, 2008. The Chinese believe that 8 is a powerful and lucky number for Olympics too but the big question is :will the supposed good fortune of Number 8 help in seeing the Olympic through smoothly?

Our astrologers have analyzed the Olympics inauguration chart and have given some important information which can be of great help to China in the context of the Olympics.

Inauguration chart:
Let’s take a look at the Inauguration chart. The chart has Aquarius Ascendant which is ruled by Saturn placed in the 7th house in inimical Leo Sign and Leo Navmansa. Neptune conjuncts the Rahu in the 12th house and Sun-Ketu placed in the 6th house, indicating hidden enemies, self-undoing, hospitals and sacrifices. The Ascendant and Moon both are placed in the star of Rahu, indicating controversies and scandals.

Solar Eclipse effects:
Solar Eclipse will occur just before a week to Olympics inauguration. Eclipse chart has Sun-Moon-Ketu and Mercury in the 8th house and Venus-Saturn joins the 8th house in Chalit Chart. So there can be deep anger, frustration and setbacks. Natural disasters cannot be ruled out. The ruthless Mars-Pluto square will be in effect from August 10, 2008. So there will be iron control, severe disputes and some people can quite possibly lose their reputations due to controversies. The eclipse will occur in the 7th house of China’s country chart and the 6th house of Olympic Inaugural chart which shows high probability of protests to start with the Olympic flame’s journey and may get even worse during the Olympic.

This Olympics may have some surprising and dangerous eruptions. It will be surrounded by controversies and political protests. Some religious fundamentalist groups may come to the fore and may try to disrupt the proceedings. There are many chances of natural calamities (like flood and earthquake) to occur during Olympics. China will try to have an iron control which, in turn, will create another set of problems. China may put-on a sunny face before the world but the reality will be different and of extreme proportions. There will be a feeling of “Show must go on”.

The following dates are very crucial to Olympics:

  1. August 17 and 18, 2008 can be a cause of concern for the authorities with chances of natural calamity to occur.
  2. There can be controversies, particularly, in the events of Athletics or Gymnastics on August 15 and 16, 2008.
  3. August 13, 16 and 21, 2008 look rather difficult and require extraordinary focus on security.
  4. New records in Track and Field or Gymnastics may be set on August 17, 18 and 19,2008

Ganesha hopes that Olympics may be prevented from prospective disasters and also prays for its successful completion.

With Ganesha’s Grace,
