The infamous Tisha B'Av

Will begin on the Sunset of July 17th 2021,

Its the day in the Jewish calendar known through millennia as the day of doom and destruction.

From the destruction of the temples, ethnic massacres to the devastations of different Jewish communities in Europe and more.



Vedic Astrology

This mysterious day brings to the surface some questions;

  • What is it in the Jewish karmic journey that can lead to such a day?

  • Any future Tisha B'Av we should be aware of?

  • Did God really make a day Jewish people should be wary about?


Spoiler alert-

  • It is not race base.

  • Maybe.

  • No.




Looking through the lens of the sacred science of Vedic astrology, we can gain a cosmic view of these events. We can attempt to extract the underlying wisdom and obtain a deeper understanding of people's experiences during these moments in time.

The planets give us a clue to the forces humans encountered during these dramatic events.


It is fascinating to see the planetary alignments during something that happened 2000 years ago and be able to unveil the historical events through the astrological maps.

Diving in-

We mostly relate Tisha B'av to the destruction of the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem. Both times, it was destroyed by the regional ruling empires, the Babylonians and the Romans. We can safely assume that the powerful governing authorities wanted more submissive subjects and didn't like the Jewish temple's growing power.

Astonishingly, the astrological charts of both Tisha B'Av days; 578 BCE and 70 CE, clearly show that.

Both times presents a strong Sun placement. Amazing was to see that the Sun's nakshatra (primordial sign) was the same, Magha, which signifies ruling power, throne, authority and arrogancy. A ruling authority that will demand its subjects to be humble and obedient.

During the first Temple destruction, Mars was with Sun and Moon was strongly challenged with powerful affliction from Saturn, Rahu Venus and Mercury in Cancer.


Many other Tisha B'Av "massacres" had similar alignments. Even when Moon was not debilitated in Scorpio, it was challenged and afflicted, which implies times of profoundly emotional and karmic experiences. See the list below.


In the bible, during the sin of the 12 spies (the first Tisha Be'Av) the Israelites wept over the (false) belief that God was setting them up for defeat.

If the Israelites remembered to use astrology for guidance, they could have seen that God is not trying to get to anyone and vote for their defeat but merely challenging them to spiritually evolve. God gave us these tools and practices to understand and expand our point of view.

Even in the first few pages of the bible, this idea was clear-

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night, and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years.

-Nature gave us signs, directions and seasons not only for agriculture usage and weather prediction but also to know what energies are occurring ahead, what planetary cycle and epoch we are in.


Astrology, especially Vedic Astrology, gives us a zoomed-out perspective, a cosmic view, and wakes us up from a life imbued in blind faith and fear of punishment dealt by the Almighty.

We can use astrology the way nature designed it, and practice it to attain guidance and understand what season is good for sowing seeds AND ALSO what seasons are suitable for different spiritual practices.


Vedic astrology can help us let go of the fear from the unknown and gain cosmic consciousness by knowing what wisdom the planets and Zodiac signs are whispering to us.
