Total solar eclipse 4 Dec 2021

A total or annular solar eclipse is coming up on 4th Dec 2021. This map shows the areas affected.

  • The white colored land areas and light blue colored sea areas will not witness the eclipse.
  • The light grey to dark blue colored seas will see a partial eclipse. The orange tips of Africa, New Zealand and Australia will see a partial eclipse, ie the solar disc will be shadowed to some extent. Progressively darker shades will mean more of the disc being obscured. Entire Antarctica will see the eclipse. Totality will be visible in the South Seas and a sizeable chunk of Antarctica.

People, if any, in these areas will have to take precautions regarding the eclipse. But this time the eclipse will influence limited human inhabitations. However it affecting Antarctica, ie the South pole and oceans around it will cause disturbances in the ocean, wind and weather patterns which originate from this area. Totality is lasting for just over 1hr, so its effect on the global levels will last for about 1-2yrs and gradually fade over 3-4yrs .

(This data from

The astrological configuration.

  • Sun Moon and Mercury in Jeyshtha nakshatra in Scorpio. 
  • Ketu in Anuradha nakshatra, Scorpio.
  • Mars in Vishakha nakshatra, at 29deg 20min at the end of Libra. He is within 15deg of Ketu so is involved in the eclipse energy.
  • Rahu in Krutika nakshatra, in Taurus.
  • Venus in Uttarashadha, Sagittarius. Jupiter in Dhanishtha, Aquarius. Saturn in Shravan, Capricorn. These three are not involved in the eclipse.

Planets involved – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Rahu, Ketu. Ketu is doing the eclipse this time.

Nakshtra involved are Jeyshtha, Anuradha, Vishakha and Krutika. 

Analysis of the eclipse in brief. 

This eclipse follows the long lunar eclipse of 19th Nov 2021 so it will influence, exaggerate the effects triggered by this eclipse energy. Very few humans and nations are directly involved now but the effect on South Pole means that there will be critical impact on the earth as a whole. Environment, weather etc are going to be more affected.

Krutika Nakshatra lies partially in Aries 1/4th and in Taurus 3/4th. The Nakshatra devata is Agni. Rahu in Krutika is a sensitive position and he will try to create violent and destructive situations. Misuse of creativity and increase in ego. An increased desire to solve issues by fighting. A need to provoke, defend and offend. Misguided behaviour with reduced regard for diplomacy, social harmony, rest, etc. Body parts connected to Krutika are face and neck, so ailments connected to these areas can be triggered.

Vishakha nakshatra lies partially in Libra 3/4th and in Scorpio 1/4th. It is linked to Jupiter and ruled by Indra Agni. Mars is in Vishakha during the eclipse. Political and military posturing will increase and there is a possibility of outright war. Aggressive and misguided decisions will be taken by self centric and ambitious political leaders. Violence, impulsiveness and ruin is expected in some areas of life. Body parts are kidneys, adrenals and the lower abdomen, diseases related to these areas are possible. 

One day after the eclipse, Mars will be joining Ketu, Sun, Moon, Mercury in Scorpio, which is a potentially dangerous situation. Some things will be trigged in everyone’s lives which may have a long term and destructive impact.

Anuradha nakshatra lies completely within the Scorpio sign. During the eclipse Ketu will be in Anuradha. Illusions are Rahu which mesmerise everyone and Ketu is the reality which is ignored. What is really happening at the Rahu’s end has to seen from Ketu’s position in Anuradha. It is ruled by Mitra and linked to Saturn. Saturnine energies magnified by the limitless Ketu is past Karma due in a big way. This can create confrontations, threatening situations, loss of livelihood, sudden deaths, communal violence, fanaticism, a sense of rebellion, everyone wanting to break free from whatever is binding them. Several will leave their physical bindings too. Body parts linked to Anuradha are reproductive organs, hips, lower abdomen. Drain on stored ‘reserves’, ie health, spiritual or financial etc. Actions may be required for self-preservation. ‘Sensitivity’ will increase, mental issues are possible. He is in a Pushkar navamsha, so as long as the energies of the eclipse remain active, he will deny support. Especially intense effects are possible from mid-Dec 2021 to mid-Feb 2022, positive or negative will be determined by the individual charts.

Jeyshtha nakshatra is ruled by Indra and linked to the planet Mercury. This is the main background energy filter as Sun and Moon are present here. It is a no Moon, Amavasya day. This eclipse indicates a loss of protection in several ways, including by taking unacceptable risks. Failure in governance due to inability to exercise or misuse of authority. Carefully built images of prominent people will crack. Astral and unseen forces will try to overpower and the general public may see adverse times. The weaker sections of the society will suffer more. Secret health issues can erupt unexpectedly. Negative emotions like loneliness, jealousy, pettiness, vengeance, age, tiredness will take its toll. Finances will remain affected. The energy of this eclipse can be used for occult activities, deep spiritual practices, exercising one’s authority especially the planning part etc.

On the global levels, there will be aggression, political turmoil, military activity and unrest. Health will be affected. Travel and other restrictions on life will increase. Weather will be unpredictable. Rain, hail and snow will be unpredictable and unprecedented. Winds, flow of air, will be affected, it will be cold. Winter crops may be spoilt. The world and the earth itself will suffer in subtle ways as a tendency for self-destruction is triggered.

Brief predictions for your birth Moon sign or the ascendant sign. Readings from the birth Moon give the emotional context. Reading from the ascendant sign gives the physical context. This eclipse will affect Taurus and Scorpio the most. Whatever these signs mean for you in your chart, expect karmic events to occur which will affect you for the next 1yr or so. The immediate effects last for about 2 weeks before and after the eclipse. 

  • For Aries, Taurus in the 2nd house, a negative effect on the finances and health of family members. Scorpio is the 8th sign, so take adequate precautions, avoid risky behaviour. Sudden health issues can erupt. 
  • For both Taurus and Scorpio, all the effects described above will be seen. For Scorpios, Saturn being favourable has helped.
  • Gemini needs to take due care. Service requirements, profession, etc will be difficult, rest will be denied, tiredness and loneliness will predominate. 
  • Cancer and Leo both feel the effects of all eclipse acutely as their owners Moon and Sun are directly involved in it. For Cancer, expected gains will be stuck for some time. Your children can be a source of concern. Avoid speculation and investing in risky ventures. And for Leo, if your birth chart is good then you can use this energy in your profession. Avoid selfishness and ego in your professional ventures and they can be successful now, Saturn is helping you.
  • Virgo can use this energy fruitfully if the birth chart is strong. Doing some pujas of your family deities before taking up anything new in this time will help
  • For Libra, Mars in the last degree can cause unexpected problems but will also help resolve them. Avoid risks and pay attention to your budget, health and rest. 
  • Sagittarius’s sleep and rest will be affected, disturbing dreams or astral events are possible. Keep a track of your dreams and in case there is anything take corrective action.
  • Capricorns can use this energy to gain if their birth chart is strong. Similarly Aquarius can also keep themselves on a generally average track. As usual Pisces will have the best time of the lot as Saturn is currently favourable for them. (Right now the strongest graha in the skies is Saturn, so if your Saturn is auspicious either in the birth chart or in transit, you will be in a better position to tide through.)

This coming time has the following additional influences operating adding to to the eclipse effects.

  • Venus going retrograde from 19th Dec – 29th Jan
  • Mercury going combust 3rd Dec – 7th Jan
  • Kaal sarpa operating in its full and partial modes.

    Hello maam.. Sort of unrelated question. Years ago, I was party to a conversation between my grandfather and his cousin who had returned after longish trip to Colorado Utah and surrounding areas. Remember that person telling my grandad about the absolute sadness that engulfed him when he visited ex red indian colonies and my grandad and him talking about that community and depressing haunting melancholy such visits can bring about to those with a spiritual practice.
    Considering USA is a world leader for some decades now, I can’t help feeling when karma comes calling…. Literally the ground will slip from under the feet.
    My thought was triggered by your mention about how now things will be decided by Mahakaal and in general about karma rebalancing.

      Hi there
      the souls of the dead original Americans were released from that land and given enough energy to enter Pitrulok precisely in nov 2016. they will ensure rebalance for the suffering and hideous death that they went through.
      the non-conscious impressions of their deaths in the land and water will be removed only if someone with that power and the karma comes to that land and pours Ganga water with that intention and power.
      3 empires, Maya Inca and Aztec were destroyed by invaders who purposely introduced small pox as an epidemic here.
      the original Australians were similarly killed by small pox. invaders used biowarfare back then.
      this small pox was introduced in (undivided) Bharat too killing a few lakh people. but we had good immunity so we survived.
      still karma demands rebalance. see what happens in the nxt 10yrs till 2032.

        There is a full length documentary on Prime video about the spiritual elders addressing this issue. There is no doubt about the wrong done. But, as regards the Maya Inca and Aztec, when you read about their practices and sacrifices involving humans, very similar to the tribes in Africa, it is something to ponder if the new wave had to come to balance that aspect.

        That wave came via the Caucasians who I consider as the Rahu people, surface and illusory, compared to the 7000 year histories of the world’s oldest civilizations, but currently holding sway as if they would have been the only civilizations to have achieved something of worth. All their inventions are purportedly a testament to science and “development” but have caused us to deplete the earth and go farther away from spirituality, their ways have caused loss of family structures and social dissonance.. Computers are the ultimate Rahu instrument 🙂

        Hi there
        and who wrote about these ‘human sacrifices’?
        the invaders who first killed them.
        first killed them and then defamed them, obviously no one was left to stand up for them.
        i feel very strongly for the original Americans, Australians, Indians/Bharatiya, Tibetians, Romani etc civilizations which were killed/destroyed in such an underhand manner.
        i do not believe any ‘history’ recorded by the invaders

        google ‘cannibalism in Europe’, the recorded incidents, esp note the timeline till it was considered to be acceptable. when you eat animal DNA, your own DNA gets warped. closer the DNA to human DNA more the damage.

        Namaste Respected Madam,

        This is such an intriguing response. You have mentioned a very precise month and year when that happened. Is there any astronomical significance? The only thing that comes to my simple mind is the change of leadership of the land at that exact month haha.

        Thank you as always.


      • astrologerbydefault December 5, 2021 / 10:28 am

        Hi there
        it did not register that there were elections on during that time. which makes the timing more intriguing.

        when the invaders landed the original Americans could have easily killed them all. there were 3 powerful and rich empires, militarily strong.
        but they were genuinely confused coz a stupid prophecy!
        and the person in charge who took the decision to not kill them (and thus killed his own peoples, millions of them, his entire civilisation,) made the energy repayments at that time. the trapped souls were released. it was satisfying to see karma being balanced.

        Similarly Russia will now progress very fast. the person who was responsible for accepting christanity in tht nation and rejecting the power of Nature ie their ancient gods, has made his karmic payments. the people there will feel more in sync with the innate power of the Nature that Russia has. i am very hopeful for this nation. it will take some time but balance will be achieved.

        I could not reply to your comment to my reply and I just wanted to say I agree 1000% about the great injustice that has been done to the indigenous people of the world by the invaders and colonizers, what ever currently exists as ‘historical records’ has been a product of the perpetrators of these injustices. Which is why I call them and their extended cousins across the middle east as the Rahu people, capable of great illusions plus lasting and profound damage to Dharma based people.

    How can we do daily pitra tarpan?


    • astrologerbydefault December 3, 2021 / 8:18 pm

      Hi there
      men can if they want to. there is a small tarpan mantra that you can use to give water tarpan, but do the hand position correctly.
      its different for devata Rishi and pitr tarpans.

      in fact when we feed cows daily or even ravens daily the energy goes to the pitrs. this is inbuilt in our traditional life style

    Dearest Tejaswiniji,

    Many, many thanks for this post as well as the earlier ones🙏🏻 Your posts on transits and eclipses are a blessing as they help us prepare ourselves 🙏🏻 Much appreciate this post and your blog itself, more than words can express🙏🏻♥️

    This solar eclipse on 4th Dec will affect Antarctica
    and the resulting negative impact on ocean and weather can affect people adversely depending on their birth chart. This eclipse is not visible in Bharat, so will the effects you mentioned affect us even if the eclipse is not visible here?

    Thanks in advance 🙏🏻

    Lots of love and gratitude

    Dearest Tejaswiniji,

    My question is not related to this post. I heard of 2 instances where a person died and his spirit is/ was accompanied by another spirit.

    In the 1st instance (1940s) the man stayed for few days in a haunted palace that was taken over by the government. He had got a new job there & since he had not got an accommodation (his home was in another state) he chose to spend the nights in this palace temporarily. A colleague warned him that the palace was haunted but this man was not afraid at all. But he couldn’t sleep in that palace at night – as soon as he slept he was woken up by a lot of unnatural sounds (like the sounds of swords clashing, etc). This despite no other human being there inside the palace at night. He shifted to a new accommodation (not haunted) away from the palace after few days. Many years later, despite looking very fit & never ever drinking alcohol, he died of liver cancer when he was barely 51. After his death the family did a prashna for an unrelated issue and was told that the yearly shraddh for this man must be done in a temple because his spirit is accompanied by another spirit who had attached to him in the palace (while he was alive); in a temple the other spirit cannot come and his spirit will get the benefit of the shraddh. This family did the shraddh for about 50 years. The son who was doing this ritual passed away in his 60s & his son is not interested in such rituals.

    In the second instance (not related to the first case) a tantrik told the family of a man who had died 17 years ago that a ‘Brahma-rakshas’ was attached to this man’s spirit. No idea about how good a tantrik this guy is or how accurate he is. However, there had been talk of a Brahma-rakshas troubling some of these family members years ago which this tantrik has no way of knowing. The family does the shraddh ritual for this man regularly yearly till date.

    My question is can such experiences really happen? If yes, isn’t it troublesome for such a “haunted” spirit as the other spirit must be using its energy? How to free the spirit of a loved one from such spirit attachments?

    Waiting eagerly for your answer.

    Lots of love and gratitude


    • astrologerbydefault December 4, 2021 / 8:34 am

      Hi there
      This permanent attachment happens often. Temporary attachments are very common.
      Thts why we must not break the rules and go where such entities reside.
      If u do u will suffer.
      U cannot free the soul. Do not get involved.
      Someone with the necessary power and knowledge must do it.

        Dear Ma’am,

        How do we come to know whether one has an entity attached? Especially when there are no obvious symptoms.

        I was told that not everyone is prone to getting entity attachment. Only the one who has to get through a particular karma will get attached by entity and the entity will leave when the karma is over. Rather if we take help of tantriks or healers, we will get mixed up with their energies too. Do you agree with this?

        Is everyday soham mantra chanting enough to get rid of entity attachment?

        Best Regards

        There are obvious signs.

        Naturally not everyone is susceptible.

        They don’t leave on their own.
        Once they get into ur energy and enjoy the free meal, why wud they leave?

        B very careful in choosing ur tantrik or healer. A good one will help u kick out the entity. Bad one will cause more problems.

        Soham is useful fr everything

        Is there anything we should do?


      • astrologerbydefault December 5, 2021 / 10:18 am

        Hi there
        you will have to learn to see the aura

        there will be cords
        a grey envelope around your aura, blackness around your head and shoulders.
        and of course you might even see the entity directly

        Behavioural changes are very common, eg you start eating something which you could never eat earlier. or drinking or gambling etc.

        easiest way

        but if you were invoking Devi Chamunda then i dont think anything could have happened.

    Dear Ma’am,

    If any planet is exalted in a chart of a poor person, is the result of that planet relative to the strength of his/ her chart as in how strong are other planets (strength of people aka planets which his/ her chart shows)

    or can that person’s fate may change suddenly in that aspect at certain time. I am asking as some combinations must be common in many people charts (Both rich and poor), still some remain poor.


    • astrologerbydefault December 5, 2021 / 10:43 am

      Hi there
      timing is very important. the correct energy, dasha/transit, must come at an age/time where it can fulfill its promise.
      and having exalted planets is not enough! check its bala, avastha, its power in the DC, ashtakvarga etc. also the overall power of the ascendant lord/sign and the moon.
