According to the Indian Political chart, this Eclipse will fall in 3rd-9th house axis, North-Western and South-Western states of India and across the globe need to take care. Northwestern states include ” Pakistan, Afghanistan, North of India, Kashmir, Rajasthan, Russia, Germany, Canada”. Above mentioned countries need to be very careful with any sort of political or catastrophic chaos of nature in the form of floods, Earthquake and Rainfall. This Eclipse is falling in Fire circle nakshatra and the symptom will be observed within a week.
Mars will be with Moon, Rahu and sun will be 7th from Moon and South Node will be closely conjugated with Mars in uttrashada.
Usually, it has been seen that whenever Moon and Mercury fall in opposition during eclipse we have observed a dramatic shift in weather situation i,e sudden rainfall, cyclonic activities and rainstorms etc to those countries falling under eclipsed areas. This Eclipse will be falling in the category of major eclipse but it is falling within a gap of 15 days from last the partial solar eclipse occurred on 13th of July 2018.
The mundane point of view it has greater meaning since from Vedic periods. Whenever two major eclipses have been observed or falling within the span of 15 or 30 days usually Mass tragedies, unusual and sudden mundane activities have been observed within a month, 6 months or could be either day before or after it where the eclipse will be visible.
This can be true in current Lunar eclipse, as soon after this eclipse we are going to see retrogression of 3 Major planets (Mars, Saturn, and Mercury) in the month of July-August 2018.Soon after this eclipse, We could observe dramatic shifts in weather scenario, i,e increase in earthquake activities, Minor warning for tsunami’s, sudden tragedies because of political issues in North western states of India or lying close to India, chances of increase in Anti-national activities in border and there would be chances vehicle-based accidents.It is not a dead sure principal that events are likely to occur but we have been observing since past mundane events soon after the eclipse and retrogression phases of planets with eclipses, it usually brings sudden unnatural events. It’s simply because of change in apparent motion of the planets wrt to Earth closeness with elemental conflicts of signs and planets those are falling in square and trine relation to each other.Soon after this Eclipse Mars will be very closer to the earth in exact opp to the sun and can be visible via the naked eyes and it can be possibly for triggering some sort of fiery or Bhomi-Tattva activity ( i.e Earthquake, Volcano etc) .
In August 2018 Mars and Saturn will be in retrograde motion will be having a relation of 2/12 signs to each other and 7/8 relation with the Sun. North Node will be with the Sun and South node will be with the Mars in Earthy Signs in mutual relation with the nodes shows possibility of the earthy activity.
According to Brihat Samhita;
Based on the Puranic Stories, Simhika, the mother of the Rahu begged of Sage Kashyapa at an unseasonal hour for progeny.Enraged at this request he gave her a son who was dreadful like Yama.This Son came to be called Rahu, as soon as he was born, he fought and sustained a defeat at the hands of the son of Devi Aditi. Because of this humiliation he performed severe penance for 10,000 divine years on the summit of Himalayas. He asked God Brahma to confer on him the status of planet, immortality , victory over the devas and power to devour the two Luminaries ( Sun and Moon).At this the lord Spoke smilingly and said thus :
“You will find it extremely hard to digest these two, still be it so “.
” Let the Creators words however not go to waste. In your respective periods you may devour the two luminaries and thereby indicate good and bad things for the world ”
Thus it is concluded that the Lunar eclipse is occurred by the boon given by the Lord Brahma and during lunar and solar eclipse rare astronomical phenomenon occur in nature where Sun, Moon and earth has to play a major role for triggering the eclipse where the dark part is only the two coinciding point of the Moon exactly occur at 180 degrees opp to each other, that point is we called as Rahu and Ketu and in divine language he is the son of the demon Vipracit, and Simhika.
According to Bhagwad Puraan, In the dynasty of Diti appeared the great saintly devotee Prahlada and also Bali, Prahlada’s grandson. Hiraṇyakaśipu and Hiraṇyakṣa were the first sons of Diti. Hiraṇyakaśipu and his wife, whose name was Kayadhu, had four sons-Saṁhlada, Anuhlada, Hlada and Prahlada. They also had one daughter, whose name was Siṁhika. In association with the demon Vipracit, Siṁhika bore a son named Rāhu, whose head was severed by the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

- In other places, there will be peace and plenty.
According to this shaloka, During this Lunar Eclipse it will be obstructed by the planet mars and it will also obstruct the orbit of the Moon which would cause trouble for 6 month to :
- kings (Kings here refereed to as the Political Person who rules the country, currently we can call as Prime Minister, President and Chief Minister of the state of the country, i.e Delhi) who have mobilized their army for war along with their vehicles (such as chariots, elephants and Horses ( according to the olden times, according to the modern technologies war machines includes tanks, Land Army and war machinery etc ).

Mahabharata mentions two different Trigarta kingdoms,
- One in the west close to the Sivi Kingdom ( It is also mentioned in the epic that Jayadratha was the king of Sindhu, Sauvira and Shivi kingdoms. Probably Sauvira and Shivi were two kingdom close to the Sindhu kingdom and Jayadratha conquered them, which would place Shivi somewhere in Western Rajasthan, Areas near Pakistan, Afganisthan though alternatively it could also be Sibi, Balochistan which is to the west of Sauvira and Sindhu and adjacent to both. Jayadratha was an ally of Duryodhana and husband of Duryodhana’s, sister Dussala.and the other north to the Kuru Kingdom.
- Modern Kangra is one of the ancient town in North Trigarta, extending westward to the Punjab area. Multan (Pakistan) was the capital of Trigarta with its original name that is Mulasthan. The territory of Trigarta Kingdom is around the three rivers of Satluj, Beas, and Ravi.
- People and Kings of the Trigarta region i.e Modern Kangra (Himachal Pradesh), Jalandhar (Punjab), Area near Pakistan i.e Multan Sibi, Baochistan, and Western Rajasthan , Malavas (Currently Punjab lying close to ravi and chenab rivers, then the Malavas migrated southwards to present-day Rajasthan, and ultimately to Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat etc) ., Kaulindas ( Those of Kulinda ; The Kingdom of Kuninda (or Kulinda in ancient literature) was an ancient Central Himalayan kingdom documented from around the 2nd century BCE to the 3rd century, located in the modern state of Uttarakhand and southern areas of Himachal in northern India.), Tribal chiefs (people living near forests or tribes areas or leaders of those groups), The Sibis (Ancient people attested to have been living in central Punjab since remote antiquity) , Kings of Ayodhya (ancient city located near Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh, India.

Its capital city was called Suktimati in Sanskrit and Sotthivati-nagara in Pali.) countries and other important Ksatriya chiefs will be get impact by this Eclipse.
- Mars is obstructing the path of the moon orbit during this Eclipse, as Mars also Presides over war and is the commander of the heavenly forces, his contacts with the moon presages harm to war Mongers countries and places.
- So this conjunction could leads to war like situation or conflicting situation with the countries those are lying close to North western states of India (falling under Capricorn and Shravan Nakashtra)
This has been Concluded for the post results after lunar eclipse as in next month, around 11th, August 2018 we will be expecting another Partial Solar eclipse after 15 days of this eclipse which will be going to visible in ; Northern and eastern Europe, Northern parts of North America, and some northern and western locations in Asia, making it the most watched solar eclipse of 2018.So we can expect such results after 11th of August and can be experienced within 1 month of the period.
According to this shaloka,
Colour of the Eclipse has been observed and if the colour of the moon is of Ash colour, Rough, Reddish ( Bloodred), Devoid of rays and Dark appearance and looks broken or shaky, people will have danger from hunger, tumult, pestilence, disease and thieves in store (There will be hike in price hikes of Food products around North-Western States or countries) .This Lunar eclipse has been considered as the blood-moon that shows above mentioned effects could be expected in coming months after the lunar eclipse.As, Lunar Eclipse disc will appear like Reddish people can suffer as a result of famine in some of the areas where disc will be visible prominently (Shaloka 53-59, Brihat Samhita, Rahuchar).
According to this shaloka, As Sign Cancer is also participate in this eclipse, the People of Abheeras (Modern day Abhira territory lies within Northern areas of Gujarat and Southern Rajasthan), Sabaras ( Tribe scattered in South Kanara Districts), Pallavas (Pahlavas are referenced in various Puranic texts like Vayu Purana, Brahmanda Purana, Markendeya Purana, Matsya Purana, Vamana Purana etc. Kirfel’s list of Uttarapatha countries of the Bhuvanakosha locates the Pahlavas along with the Tusharas, Chinas, Angalaukikas, Barbaras, Kambojas, Daradas, Bahlikas and other countries of the Udichya division of ancient India.) , Those are in the profession of Wrestling or fitness etc, Mathsyas (It roughly corresponded to the former state of Jaipur in Rajasthan, and included the whole of Hindaun, Alwar with portions of Bharatpur), Kurus ( Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Uttarakhand and the western part of Uttar Pradesh), Sakas (The Saka people were an Iranian people who spoke a language belonging to the Iranian branch of the Indo-European languages) and Panchalas (The Panchala kingdom (Mahabharata) extends from the Himalayas in the north; to the Charmanwati river; with the Kuru, Surasena and Matsya kingdoms to the west; and the Naimisha Forest to the east. ) will suffer due to destruction’s of food grains.
According to this shaloka Eclipse is occurring in the sign Capricorn which will affect the people those are in fishing profession, or the fishes those are living in sea or rivers, Ministers and their families will suffer, men of low class ( people of those are of service class or in service industry would get affect) and also those who are skilled in charms ( occult, black magic, healing’s or doctors those are working with herbs those are working as old and inform and the person who holds the profession of weapons or who lives by weapon ( i.e Army, police and security guards) also suffers.
According to this Shaloka,
In This Eclipse, Mercury would aspect the Eclipsed moon, so products like Ghee, Honey and oils would become Scarce and dear and kings would come to grief (Downfall of King revenue) , as Mars is also joining the lunar eclipse he would cause outbreak of wars like situation, rish from fire and there would be trouble from robbers, means there would be chances of war like situation or probability of Military actions from the people those are in the weapon industry or working as army-men.
People of Avanthi ( Madhyapradesh; The historical Avanti Kingdom of ancient India is described in the Mahabharata epic. Avanti was divided into north and south by river Vetravati. Initially, Mahissati (Sanskrit; Mahishamati) was the capital of Southern Avanti, and Ujjaini (Sanskrit Ujjayini) was of northern Avanti, but at the times of Mahavira and Buddha, Ujjaini was the capital of integrated Avanti. The country of Avanti roughly corresponded to modern Malwa, Nimar and adjoining parts of the Madhya Pradesh), People living near banks of Cauvery i,e Tamilnaidu and Karnataka, and People and Kings (Ministers) those are living near banks of Narmada i,e Madhya pradesh, will suffer from Arrogance and misery (with great physical or mental distress or discomfort due to arrogance ruling).
As, Mercury is conjoined in this lunar eclipse with Sun and Rahu, it will afflict the country lying between Ganges (River rises in the western Himalayas in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, and flows south and east through the Gangetic Plain of North India, Places such as Varanasi, Uttrakhand, west bengal etc) .and Jumna (People living near Haryana and Uttar Pradesh, passing by Uttarakhand and later Delhi, and meeting its tributaries on the way, including Tons, its largest tributary in Uttarakhand, Chambal) , on the banks of Saryu (Sarayu is a river that flows through the Indian states of Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh.) , those living on the east coast and on the banks of the sona (The Son parallels the Kaimur hills, flowing east-northeast through Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and Bihar states to join the Ganges just west of Patna. Geologically, the lower valley of the Son is an extension of the Narmada Valley, and the Kaimur Range an extension of the Vindhya Range. Dehri on sone and Sonbhadra are the major cities situated on Son River.), womenfolk (Women’s living around these banks) , kings (ministers) and warriors (Army men or solders) , Princes (People having royal status) and the learned (People those are knowledgeable and intelligent ) would come to grief .
According to this shaloka we have seen that Soon after the eclipse there could be possibility of the dry weather with less rainfall which can result low water level in wells, tanks and rivers can also dry up and possibly it will bring hot, dry and warm weather in areas close to the Kashmir ( Jammu and Kashmir), Pakistan, Kabul, Kandhar, Afghanistan, China, Madhyapradesh). People those are in the profession of fruits, Herbs and shrubs i.e Gandhara Kingdom (Gandhāra (Sanskrit: गन्धार) was a kingdom mentioned in the Indian epics Mahabharata and Ramayana. Gandhara was lying close to the modern zone of Pakistan, afganisthan and kabul . Puskalavati, Takshasila (Taxila) and Purushapura (Peshawar) were cities in this Gandhara kingdom.), Kashmir ( Jammu and Kashmir region, upper hilly region of Kashmir) , Pulindas Kingdom, (Sanskrit: पुलिंद) were an ancient tribe of India, likely resident in the environs of the Vindhya Range of Central India, The Rock Edicts of Ashoka (269 BCE – 231 BCE) mention the Pulindas, their capital Pulinda-nagara, and their neighboring tribes, based on which their capital is sometimes located in present-day Jabalpur District of Madhya Pradesh state. According to the Basak belongs to the hill tribes of the Vindhya and Satpura ranges, more specifically the Bhils, or could be belongs to the area of Bundelkhand. Though they are clearly associated with the Vindhyan region, believed to have had multiple tribal branches that ranged up to the Himalayan region and Assam) and China Kingdom will suffer greatly due to Irregular rainfall and dry, warm weather. The temperature will be high and there will be a situation like no rainfall after the eclipse.

Let’s see what is written in the destiny of the world. we can only pray and hope for the best of world peace and integrity. Stars works on universal principals.we are nothing against the working principals of nature and neither we can change anything in material world.its the time and nature who decides and balances it for establishing harmony in the world. Eclipses are rare astronomical events because all three; the Earth, the moon, and the sun must align. During a lunar eclipse, the sun and the moon are on the opposite sides of the Earth. With this split, there is a clear energy in the air of the future and the past—what you need to change versus what you need to let go.
