The Graha's (Planets) are always moving, always delivering the Karma's of mankind.
From Jan 2012- August 2012: Even more challenging time due to Saturn's position, compounded by the planetary period of the Sun from 2/5/2012 onward: bring some difficulty in Government function and interaction, both domestically and internationally, more caution and care needed for anti social elements and enemies of the state.
The 1st 6 months of 2012 are not easy due to the influences of Saturn's transit and the Sun's period. The jyotishis were specifically asked about the "Mayan" and other predictions about the potential destruction of the world in 2012 and the Jyotish Pandits delved really hard, but were unable to find any such dire predictions. (Note: Many Mayans do not agree with this dire forecast).
