In the domain of Mundane Astrology, there are two charts of India which are considered relevant, though the existence of an ancient chart pertaining to ‘Bharatvarsha’ since the time of Varahamira is also known to exist, but because the political boundaries have undergone considerable change since then, therefore, what are relevant for Union of India now, are the charts which are known as ‘India’s Independence chart’ and ‘India’s Republic Chart’.
The astrologers, while dealing with mundane matters, normally look for India’s Independence Chart for evaluating matters like external affairs, internal disturbances, general well being and economy of the nation.
However, the chart pertaining to India’s republic provides better clues relating to matters falling within the preview of judiciary and legislature, major reforms pertaining to the laws and an insight into the functioning of the judiciary.
With the above approach, the predictive analysis about India is being sought to be done. The limitation of an astrologer who normally is capable of ascertaining the probabilities and not the exact truth has to be kept in mind by the reader.
India, as per its independence chart, was undergoing the Dasha of ‘Venus’ from 1989 up to the end of 2009. The Venus Dasha, which is the Ascendant and Sixth Lord and is posited in Cancer in the Third Sun dasha- from 11/9/2009 to 10/9/2015
House was ‘Raj Yog Karaka’ for India and true to its
potential brought India out of clutches of utter poverty and indebtedness, to
make it an economic power house whose
existence and presence was reckoned and came to be acknowledged all over the world. The turnaround of India economy started with
Venus/Sun Bhukti around 1992 and brought
to prominence the women of India, in
political and glamour related fields.
True to its promise during Venus Dasha, the Indians and Indian women in
particular achieved success in sports,
Cinema(With Bollywood getting International acclaim), politics,
Industry, Economy, Education, Information technology, Administration and Beauty
pageants etc. and became the major contributors to the economic success story
of India. Incidentally, the Information technology, cinema, beauty contests,
gems and jewellery, gold adornments, handicrafts are all fields related to the
feminine planet `Venus’. India never looked back from 1992 to 2009 despite the
world facing its worst recession in the last 80 years in the Year 2008.
Incidentally, the only significant difference between the Natal chart of India
and its neighbor Pakistan, who also got its independence at the same time of
midnight but one day earlier i.e. on 14th August,1947, is that while Moon which
represents in mundane astrology- the public and women is strongly posited in
its own house in 3rd from the Ascendant for India, the same in case of Pakistan is posited in inimical
sign of Mercury( not considered inimical, of course, by the Moon as per the
classical texts)in the 2nd house form the ascendant causing Chandra-Mangal
Yoga. This difference alone makes the Indian democracy vibrant and its women
stronger and progressive and contributing to the well-being of the economy even
through entrepreneurship. While the weak Moon in Pakistan`s chart causes
weakening of its democracy. The political power being taken over, by the men in
uniform, due to influence of Mars. Such equation thus always causing internal
feuds and also the earning of the state through questionable means which even
indicates the influence of drug lords and
arms smugglers over some of the Government institutions.
Now, from the end of 2009, India is undergoing Sun Dasha which is the
4th Lord posited in third. Since it is
in conjunction with Venus, Mercury, Saturn and Moon therefore, the trend of growth
set up by Venus may not only continue in the Dasha of Sun till 2015, but also
of Moon which continues till the end of 2025.
Therefore, the growth story started during the Dasha of Venus remains
intact and may continue till 2025. The
years ahead, therefore will allow India
to pursue its economic success story
with a degree of continuity. The
Sun however, being a natural malefic is
not without its own share of some negative
Sun represents the top echelons of power, therefore, some established heads of
Centre and States may have to loose power during the Sun Dasha, especially
during currently running Rahu Bhukti and later on in Sun/Saturn Bhukti. India also needs to be alarmed against usurping
of its territories by some inimical neighboring countries during the period
running up to 2015. Some act of
aggression against the territory of India is also not ruled out. Though India will be found equally or
more aggressive and matching to the
threats. The year up to 2015 will make
Indian Policy makers realize the impending threats of famines, global warming
and receding water tables, but equally, the same issues will engage and receive
the focused attention of policy makers who will also suitably respond with the
policy and action oriented initiatives which will result in water availability
and harnessing of hydro power during the
Moon Dasha i.e. between the period 2015 to 2025. The Mars Dasha starting from
2025 and up to 2032, however may see the increased role of army in domestic
politics. But such role may not be negative as in the case of Pakistan.
Looking at the India’s Republic Chart, an important
date line is emerging from 24.06.2011.
This is a period when Ascendant and
10th Lord Jupiter posited in 11th House in debilitation starts its Dasha
period. The period will mark the
beginning of massive judicial and legislative reforms and will see the decline
of corruption in Judiciary as well as in Executive through a slew of measures
unleashed through a continual but gradual process. The cleansing will be top driven and may get
ushered through initiatives which may be outcome of deviant and not exactly a
Asc. Rahu Moon
Sun-Jup- Ven Sat
Jupiter dasha- from 24/6/2011
The considerable changes in Judiciary and legislature,
will be discernible to whole world and
will lead to punishing of rich and mighty.
The Judiciary will re-orient itself and shall be found to be responding to the task of eradicating
corruption and bringing about equality through means which would have been
unimaginable few years back. The intense
power conflict between the beneficiaries of corruption and those fighting
against will be quite visible in the
years to come, but the presence of Rahu in Ascendant in both the charts of
India indicates that the corruption may at the most get reduced with some
guilty being punished but may not get totally eradicated. India will also see during the Jupiter Dasha,
reform of its economic and financial system through legislative and judicial
measures. Many new economic laws will be
formulated, old laws reformed and quite of a few new institutions shall be created in the
matters of public finance and economic administration. The period overall surely marks a betterment
for India, for what it got as a nation from
its legislature and Judiciary during the 18 years Dasha of Rahu which finally
comes to an end on 24.06.2011. Both
these wings of democracy may also get to see greater stability and continuity
in the policies in the next 16 years.
