To my research, I have observed every Solar Eclipse sets some Theme for the period of 6 months to 1 year or say till the following Annual Solar Eclipse.


This year Solar Eclipse occurs in Scorpio sign, Jyeshtha Nakshatra at 28-59 degrees, which happens to be very close to Gandanta Point. Taurus is the 2nd house of the Zodiac, the sign of possessions. Scorpio is the 8th sign of the zodiac which is the 2nd house of the opponent, hence it is all about what other people possess. This can include sexual issues, for they usually involve another person. It is also about the eventual Transformation (e.g., Death of someone known). Scorpio  is all about the things  neither you know nor you understand.  It is a house of some  Hidden Power.   Scorpio falls in a water sign, I would say, DEEP water sign. Like an ocean which has many Hidden Pearls and other Treasure in it.  Water stands for Emotions too. So this is the Deep Emotional sign which is Hiding a lot beneath the sheaths of mind.


This eclipse occurs at Gandanta point. What is Gandanta?  In short, ‘Gand’ means  ‘Knot’ and ‘Anta’means ‘End’. Gandanta means   ‘Knot at the End’. A well-tied knot is that it is very difficult to unravel. The more we try to untie the knot, the tighter it becomes. In fact, Gandanta represents a knot within ourselves, a deep issue, which we are trying to reconcile with.    Gandanta points are transitions between water and fire signs in Vedic astrology,  to be precise, these  Gandanta points are located at the junctions of Pisces (Revati Nakshatra) & Aries (Ashvinī Nakshatra) signs, Cancer (AshleshaNakshatra) & Leo (Magha Nakshatra) signs, Scorpio (Jyeshtha Nakshatra ) & Sagittarius (MulaNakshatra) signs.  


Caution is advised as the Gandanta energy is unstable and full of potential obstacles. Any planets traversing this Gandanta point has the potential to bring transformation. Any planet transiting Gandanta  point becomes extremely powerful to bring a change not only to themselves but into the world. This forthcoming Solar Eclipse would take place extremely close to Gandanta point at 28-59 degrees of Scorpio, hence some ‘Transformation is on the cards


Deeper Meaning of the Solar Eclipse in Scorpio at Gandanta

As explained earlier, Gandanta means’ ‘End of the Knot’.   And Gandanta point  in Scorpio (Hidden sign) means  ‘Hidden Emotional, Material & Sexual knots’ which have been ‘Knotted for Lives’ and are Hidden from our own Self Awareness.  In other words, I call them ‘Knot of Karmas including Vaasnas (Impressions of the intense past desires)’.  Generally, Solar Eclipses tend to create new beginnings and bright new opportunities; they may bring random events at your door steps. This Solar Eclipse gives the opportunity to ‘Untie the Knot’, understand the consequences of the ‘Karma’, (I believe one should Cleanse self) and move forward with renewed energy and enthusiasm. In fact,    Eclipses can help one to become aware of one’s potential which was  never thought of.

From human body point of view, Scorpio sign  controls  the generative organs and the ducts through which the excretions of the body pass, such as the urethra (the small canal through which the urine passes from the bladder outward) and the colon, including the anus.  The bladder, the sigmoid flexure, prostate gland, pubic bone, the red colouring matter of the blood, and the nasal bones are also under the rule of Scorpios.

To memorise, Scorpio has the portfolio to look after  – “Bladder, urethra, genitals, descending colon, prostate gland, sigmoid flexure, nasal bone, pubic bone, red colouring matter in blood” . 

Two and a quarter Nakshatras fall in Scorpio,  as follows:

  1. Vishaka: 0-00 degrees  –  3-20 degrees
  2. Anuradha: 3-20  degrees –  16-40 degrees
  3. Jyeshtha: 14-40 degrees to 30-00 degrees

If I breakdown further, Jyeshtha Nakshatra  has the portfolio to control ‘Colon, Anus, Genital Organs, Ovaries and Womb’

To memorise, Scorpio has the portfolio to look after  – “Bladder, urethra, genitals, descending colon, prostate gland, sigmoid flexure, nasal bone, pubic bone, red colouring matter in blood” . 


Further Jyeshtha Nakshatra has a Tamasic/Raakshic (Dull/Demonic) nature with materialism/accumulation as the primary motivation.  Planets in this Nakshatra gain “the power to rise, conquer, and gain courage in battle”.  Practically speaking, the Theme of this Solar Eclipse could be on ‘Hidden Things’ or ‘Conquering Hidden Enemy’


I believe this Solar Eclipse would bring out a lot of ‘Hidden’ things with the power to rise, conquer, and gain courage in battle.  Keeping the current scenario of the world in view, this battle may be to ‘Investigate the hidden reason behind Covid-19, Finding the appropriate solution for Covid-19, Release of Safe-Vaccine,   Scandals, Death relates issues, Discovering Terror related issues, and/or  Finding Solution to Restore Global Economy including Debt Management’


Looking at the above points I would say Theme for the Solar Eclipse should  be ‘Conquer the Hidden Enemy* and Restore Global Economy’. (*Covid19, reason for Covid19, etc) and a lot of progress must come in:

  • Death related issues
  • Hidden Knowledge
  • Scandals
  • Further research in Viruses
  • Better understanding of under water/earth  activities/resources
  • Focus on research  may be on  sex related issues or around generative organs
  • Research on how to handle emotional challenges 
  • Digital Security
  • Debt Management
  • Financial restructure
