On 4th March, 2015(Wednesday) Reserve Bank of India Governor Raghuram Rajan cut repo rate by 0.25 per cent with immediate effect. The announcement came at 8.30 a.m. before markets opened. The reasons for choosing such a time just before market openig is ambigous as pointed out earlier on 15th January,2015. As a result Nifty opened at 9109(+113), rose up to 9119(+123) but, crashed to 8894 and closed at 8923 with a loss of 73 points. Nifty futures range was 9191 - 8926, down swing of 265 points.

Grahanila(Planetary positions) as on 1st Mar 2015

As on 1st March 2015 Sun in Aquarius, Venus, Mars & Ketu in Pisces, Moon in Taurus, Jupiter in Cancer, Rahu in Virgo, Saturn in Scorpio and Mercury in Capricornus. Planetary transits in March: 9th Mercury -> Aquarius, 12th Venus -> Aries, 15th Sun -> Pisces, 23rd Mars -> Aries and 27th Mercury -> Pisces.
The planetary positions given above are at the time of Sunrise in India(Kerala) and Moon's conjunction effects on markets may be seen in countries (Asia / Europe / US) over which conjunction(0°) take places. When the angular difference between Moon and the planet is more than 5 degrees or conjunction occurs in Rasis(constellations) other than the Sun's Rasi, there may be a delay up to 24 hours in the conjuntion effect according to their positions (note: expect only eighty percent success in assumptions based on Moon's conjunction with Mars, Venus and Jupiter as some other astro factors also may influence the market). Since Jupiter is in retrograde from 8th December 2014 to 8th April 2015 and Saturn from 12th March 2015 to 4th August 2015 the market may be highly volatile. As Moon conjuncts with Mars and Venus on 21st and 22nd respectively Nifty may move downwards on 23rd. As Moon conjuncts with Jupitor in retrograde on 3rd and full moon on 5th be cautious on next week.

Hara Hara Shambho Mahadeva

According to Hindu Puranas, during the great mythical churning of the ocean called Samudra Manthan, a pot of poison emerged from the ocean. The gods and the demons were terrified as it could destroy the entire world. When they ran to Shiva for help, he in order to protect the world, drank the deadly poison but held it in his throat instead of swallowing it. This turned his throat blue, and since then he came to be known as 'Nilkantha', the blue-throated one. Shivratri celebrates this event by which Shiva saved the world.

Maha Shivratri, the night of the worship of Lord Shiva, occurs on the 14th night of the new moon during the dark half of the month of Phalguna. It falls on a moonless February/March night, when Hindus offer special prayer to the lord of destruction. Shivratri (Sanskrit 'ratri' = night) is the night when he is said to have performed the Tandava Nritya or the dance of primordial creation, preservation and destruction. The festival is observed for one day and one night only. This years Maha Shivratri is being celebrated today(17th February 2015).

It is auspicious to hear "Om Namah Shivaya" bhajan today
