Supreme Court of India Judgment on Transgender Rights and Its Correlation with Vedic Astrology Transits in April, 2014

The Supreme Court of India Judgment recognizing transgender people as the third sex and granting them rights comes at an interesting astrological time when transit Mercury/ Budha is debilitated/ Neecha/ Nīca in Pisces/ Meena Rashi/ Mīna Rāśi.

This is an instance of the direct impact of the Vedic astrological entities (planets,  signs etc. ) on our contemporary lives.

It is well known in Vedic Astrology that Mercury and Saturn/ Shani/ Śani are sexless/ eunuch Grahas/ planets. Anything to do with transgender people must therefore first reflect in these two planets.

Mercury is debilitated in Pisces these days indicating the prominence of some of its significations which find themselves in debility or dire circumstances. The case made out for the transgender people was founded on the discrimination they face which leads to their lives being mired in poverty and hardship (debility).

Judgments are to be found in Libra/ Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi which is depicted by the balance and where Saturn is currently exalted. Hence we have the debilitated transgender people being lifted (exalted) by Judgment of the Supreme Court. Saturn is the old transgender/ eunuch planet and is happiest when the black robes of the judiciary save it. Rāhu/ Rahu joined shows the pressure group created to bring about an awareness of these issues and present them in a partisan way to secure an authoritative pronouncement which would improve the situation.

The transit chart showing the planetary positions is given below-


The Moon shows fructification and manifestation and joined Saturn and Rahu ensured that the issue would attain finality at this time.

I also find that Mercury itself should indicate a change in circumstances because after all the transgender people are no longer debilitated but celebrating the victory and feeling quite exalted. This can be appreciated through the concept of cancellation of debility or Nīcabhaṅga/ Neechabhanga.

If we see the transits from the Lagna/ Ascendants ruled by Mercury, viz. Gemini and Virgo, then we find that Budha/ Mercury is in a Kendra/ Keṅdra/ quadrant from the Lagna striving to improve its lot. However, the elevation is brought about by law, the significator for which is Jupiter/ Gurū/ Guru placed in Gemini/ Mithuna Rāśi/ Rashi ruled by Mercury. In a quadrant from both Mercury owned Lagnas it is Jupiter which has granted cancellation of debility of the transgender people though operation of the law.
