Hi and welcome back to the Eye of the Veda blog. This is Kelley, an Astrology Apprentice and student of Corey’s. Today, I’ll be highlighting some of his recent predictions surrounding the eclipse cycles of 2020. They were all incredibly accurate and specific; so much so, that I wanted to do a follow-up blog post to show the benefit and power behind using Vedic Astrology correctly.
For example, in December 2019, Corey spoke about the potential for severe economic turmoil as well as inflammatory-related health issues; long before Coronavirus even hit the news in the U.S.
In fact, in a short and casual Facebook post that Corey shared with friends and family, he specifically predicted that these planetary influences will cause economic and health-related issues that will impact Asia the most (remember the Coronavirus ‘started’ in China). He also touched on the fact that the Moon rules the respiratory system, and the North Node of the Moon (Rahu), rules viruses.
He wrote this on December 28th, 2019 at 10:06 AM:
I also remember Corey telling me how bad these eclipses could be when he was reiterating what his teacher, Ernst Wilhelm, had explained to him back in November 2017. When the virus first hit the U.S., I also remember Corey saying he had a month worth of rice and beans already stored because he had been so aware of the major changes that were on the way.
“My teacher told me and others back in 2017 how bad this (Jan 2020) eclipse was going to be, and how it was going to cause major economic and survival issues for the planet. So I knew what was coming and I already had a month worth of beans and rice on hand for this winter because I was quite certain major changes were going to take place as a result of these eclipses in the changeable signs of Cancer and Capricorn.” —Corey Dowds
So let’s circle back for anyone who doesn’t already see the connections: The Moon rules the Respiratory, Urinary, and Circulatory systems. The Moon also controls the flow of the tides on our planet in the same way it controls the flow of water within our own bodies. The Coronavirus is considered to be a “wet” virus, and is believed to primarily impact the lungs and respiratory system. As mentioned earlier, the Moon rules the lungs / respiratory system, and is coincidentally the wettest planet of all. The transit of Rahu (Viruses) over Cancer, the sign of the Moon, along with all the other bad health and disease indications of this eclipse made it very likely that some sort of widespread inflammatory respiratory issue would occur.
In the post, Corey also mentioned swelling and issues related to water retention (the primary symptoms the Coronavirus is causing ie: inflammation of the lungs). He also specifically stated that the respiratory system was targeted at this time and that “issues could occur around that system.”
“The eclipses here will bring water and flooding issues. Also in a medical sense more people may have water retention issues, swelling, constipation, or issues with the blood flow and water in the body. The Moon rules the circulatory/urinary/respiratory system, issues could occur around that system.” – Corey Dowds
The Moon is said to rule over swelling and inflammation to some degree, as it moves the tides of the earth, and appears to “swell” and grow half of the month, and then receded and wane the other half. He explained that this was known in ancient times even:
“These characteristics of the Moon were known even in ancient times when Hippocrates clearly stated that no one should conduct surgery on a part of the body that is ruled by the sign of the zodiac that the Moon is transiting. This is because wherever the Moon is transiting is likely to be more swollen because more blood flow will be circulating to that body part at that time. Going through with surgeries under these transits is likely to increase the amount of blood loss and possible complications than at another time.” -Corey Dowds
So we already have a historical precedent for the Moon and its ability to cause swelling and inflammation, especially when afflicted, or during an eclipse time. This is EXACTLY what COVID-19 causes according to WebMD: “The new coronavirus can infect the upper or lower part of your respiratory tract. It travels down your airways. The lining can become irritated and inflamed.” SOURCE: WebMD Medical Reference Reviewed by Neha Pathak, MD on March 25, 2020
As previously mentioned, it is well known how Rahu (North Node of the Moon) rules viruses…. a commonly known fact in Vedic and Medical Astrology. Cancer, being ruled by the Moon, is the zodiac sign connected to the lungs and respiratory system. So when Rahu crossed Cancer, planet earth was scheduled to have a lung / respiratory-related virus emerge.
It’s also interesting how Corey highlighted Capricorn as being ruled by the planet Saturn, and how that connects to the muscular and lymphatic systems, both ruled by Saturn. As a result of the Coronavirus, much of the world was forced into a total lockdown/quarantine. So in relation to the Capricorn/Saturn reference, the entire planet did end up feeling rather cooped up and isolated as a result of these eclipses, just as expected. The planet Saturn rules death, disease, loss, poverty, poor health, wandering, depression, delays, despondency, and feeling stuck in life.
This was the advice that the CDC was giving to people: “Try to take a walk, try to maintain your routine and not forget to exercise while you are in the lockdown, etc.” which is the exact advice Corey gave (using Vedic Astrology), an impressive 6 months earlier.
In hindsight, another interesting point is how Saturn rules isolation, and this eclipse created a lot of isolation for people, among many other things that Saturn rules. Corey pointed out that almost all of the planets were in signs ruled by Saturn when we had the eclipse in January 2020….. as a result, many of Saturn’s significations dominated the collective world this year.
As for the economic crisis…. Corey had previously mentioned his teacher, Ernst Wilhelm, having already forecasted dire economic issues for the world in 2020. Ernst said this way back in 2017, while Corey and a few other astrologers were hanging out in Ernst’s living room enjoying a giant salad. With that in mind, look at what Corey wrote on the Eye of the Veda blog on November 25th, 2019, long before the economic crash of 2020:
Literally, the first thing he said is that these upcoming eclipses are going to cause world-changing events and major economic shifts….. “There could be economic or survival threats…”
(Note: Corey chose not to elaborate on this too much as it was already predicted by so many other astrologers. Even one of his colleagues, Ganesh Jayakumar, predicted the major economic crisis down to the exact months of February and March of 2020. He forecasted this on a forum in 2017: Click here to read more about that from Ganesha’s website.)
In is blog post from November of 2019, Corey also pointed out how major long term changes are likely to occur during this time period as a result of the strong emphasis on the ‘cara’ or changeable signs. He also mentions how many of these big worldly structures and systems that rule us, will be hit with a long-overdue reality check.
Think about how much faith we have lost in our worldly structures and systems over the last several months. Faith and trust in the mainstream media continues to decline tremendously, as well as in the modern medical world as more stories of corruption and for-profit caregiving surface. Countless celebrities and elite figures have also taken a fall this year; so many that it would require an entire additional post to cover them all. A few worth mentioning though would be: Ellen Degeneres, Madonna, Prince Andrew, Harvey Weinstein, and Ghislaine Maxwell.
Let’s focus on Ellen for example, who has had this eclipse falling in her first and seventh house axis, as a Cancer lagna. The first house is the house of the self, and the seventh is the house of other-selves, and hence the public and one’s public image. It certainly seems her public image has been “eclipsed” over the last year.

Apparently, Ellen has been called one of the “meanest people alive” and a Twitter thread about this received over 2,000 responses. I wanted to highlight this because in his eclipse prediction video, Corey explains how the sign of Capricorn rules the elite…. but even more interestingly, it is Saturn who rules Capricorn, and Saturn is the planet who rules the masses and common folk. It is always the people/common folk that actually empower and support the rulers. As current events unfold, it seems many more people are beginning to realize that the elite cannot remain in power without the support and cooperation of the masses. There is an underlying theme of using unity to overcome and take down corrupt Capricorn figures both on the entertainment and government platforms. Ellen, who had her house burglarized over the 4th of July weekend, is just one quick example of Saturn responding.

Cancer is also the sign of one’s dwelling space and home, and is Ellen’s first house, where the eclipse occurred. We had a Lunar eclipse on July 5th, one day after the fourth of July, the day Ellen’s home was robbed. (It is also worth noting that Ghislaine Maxwell was also indicted within a few days of this eclipse, but that require another article to properly address.)
The first and seventh houses are the houses of the self, (1st) and the other self (7th) aka the public. One’s overall popularity can have a lot to do with the seventh house. With the eclipses in these parts of her chart, she has lost her power to influence the public during this eclipse.
“They say when Saturn is happy with you, he makes your name remembered for a very long time. They say if Saturn is unhappy with you and the karmas you have been performing, he destroys any trace of your existence from the world. It appears that Saturn has been busy with what I refer to in this video as a changing of the guard(s).” —Corey Dowds
With this eclipse, Saturn has been busy ‘dethroning’ all of the elite figures who are not karmically meant to remain in their position for the next 30-year cycle of Saturn. We have seen this with numerous CEO resignations, and we have seen this with high-level people finally being sentenced to prison in the case of Harvey Weinstein.
To be continued….
