Decoding India's fate in 2016
As usual we are getting ready to celebrate the New Year 2016. Invariably a new year becomes the focal point of our life because it gives a reason to celebrate that year, one which we await each time with full fanfare and expect something different is going to happen. If the stars of our horoscope synchronize with the cosmic scheme then results start coming in. However if there is a discrepancy between the two then things can go downhill also. How the New Year or 2016 will affect all of us grossly let us understand through the chart of the Nation and its prominent leaders. It is noted that net results of our life are directly related with our chart vis-à-vis to the cosmos.
Decoding India's horoscope
There are various principles laid down by sages to know the year ahead for the world, countries, nation and others. We are trying to combine most of these methods to know what is in store in 2016 for the nation and its leaders and stalwarts. To begin with we are reproducing the horoscope of India to figure out how this young nation is going to fare in 2016.
India was born on 15th August 1947 at 0 hours at Delhi. At the time of India’s birth Taurus lagna was rising on the eastern horizon and planetary position was as such; Rahu – Taurus, Mars, Uranus – Gemini, Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Pluto – Cancer, Neptune – Virgo, Jupiter – Libra and Ketu in Scorpio.
Taurus ascendant was rising at the time of India’s birth. Rahu is placed in it. Third house is occupied by five planets i.e. Sun, Saturn, Venus, Mercury and Moon. The third house and five planets have given immense strength to the nation. Astrologically speaking, third house represents prowess, communication, neighbour and inner desire to reach out to the world. Whenever four or more than four planets are together in a house then they tend to energise the house and its qualities to a great extent. There are many rajayogas formed in a chart and here the grand ‘Pravajra Rajayoga’ is formed due to the presence of five planets in a sign.
Fructification of Rajayoga happens only when a planet is involved in Rajayoga and its dasa is in operation at a particular period. The Moon’s mahadasa has begun from September 2015 to September 2025. According to Vedas and Vedic astrology Moon represents the mind of the masses. As we are aware there is more than 70 percent water on this earth so is it true for our physical body because all human bodies are made up of more than 70 percent water. The Moon has many ownerships in this world including our mind, feelings, emotions, imagination and creation.
Influence of Mercury and Moon
In astrological parlance, two planets are considered ever young i.e. Mercury and the Moon. It is a great coincidence that India is a young nation which has more than 70 percent young population whose average age is not even 35 years. The maha Dasa of Moon has just started for the next 10 years which are very important for this vibrant country bubbling with true youngest. As stated elsewhere, Moon has occupied the 3rd house in the nation’s chart and this house represents courage, confidence and a keen desire to prove to this world that not only do we exist but we have the self-reliance to make a difference in the philosophy and ideology of this world. That is what this nation and its young brigade are going to prove in coming next 10 years.
What kind of challenges lie ahead in 2016?
Having said that, we would like to confine ourselves for the next one year i.e. 2016 and see what kind of challenges or opportunities the cosmos is going to throw at us and how our leaders will respond collectively and give the nation a positive direction. In the nation’s chart, Moon – Moon are in operation till 10th July 2016, after that sub of Mars will operate in the major period of Moon and this dasa will continue till the end of the year.
Tensions between India and other nations in 2016
It is believed in astrology that the first sub-period does not give desired results and as dasa progresses then the pattern of results establishes according to the different strengths of the planet. On the economic front, the country will do very well and new schemes of the welfare of the masses will be launched and those will be appreciated generally. Moon also represents money therefore, there is a good scope that many foreign investors will come forward and bring a substantial amount of money which will help to rebuild India in a different way. India is going to enjoy good trade and business relationship with its neighbours i.e. Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Bhutan and China also although border issues with Pakistan and China can create tension i
Transits of Planets for India in 2016
Transit of planets in the sky plays a very important and decisive role in the pattern of establishing results. From nation’s lagna Jupiter is transiting over 4th house where Rahu will join him on 9th January and this conjunction will continue till 11th August when Jupiter moves into Virgo. Another major planet Saturn is already transiting over the 7thhouse of the nation’s chart and Mars will join him on 20th of February till 17th of June. In the early part of 2016 two complex phenomenons are happening in the hierarchy of planets. Jupiter – Rahu conjunction gives rise to a ‘Guru Chandal yoga’. This combination is not considered good because general wisdom of an individual gets afflicted. In a state of utter confusion a normal intelligent man
Influence of Retrograde Mars
Mars will become retrograde on 17th April and continue till 30th June 2016. Saturn will also become retrograde on 25th March 2016 and continue till 13th of August. The period between April and June could be quite chaotic. Terrorist activities could be on the rise and subsequent negative results could be seen. Political parties will not provide needed balm and some of their unscrupulous leaders will add to the fire. This could also be the time when unrest on Indo-China border could be triggered off. We do not expect the situation will go out of hand but tension will prevail at the line of control. Nature could also play havoc especially in the month of May and June when a major earthquake could bring disaster.
Calamities due to Mars Retrograde in India and surrounding nations
Affected areas could be Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kashmir and Delhi also. Mars will come back to Libra in its retrograde motion on 17th June and re-enter into Scorpio on 12th July. Terrorist activities may trigger off in Jammu and Kashmir or its borders including Punjab. Natural calamities like flood and drought could also be seen in different parts of the country.
Planetary Conjunctions dangerous to Leaders
Mars has already gone into Scorpio and shall remain there till 18th August. Since we are aware Saturn is already there, another conjunction is going to take place between two deadly planets – Mars and Saturn. Some of the government’s schemes will be opposed by opposition parties and ruckus can be seen inside and outside of the parliament. Prominent leaders should take care of themselves and tighten their security, especially in this period. It has been observed that whenever Mars – Saturn conjunction happens in uncomfortable houses then danger hangs around important leaders.
Influence of Jupiter in 2016
Jupiter will move into Virgo on 11th of August and shall continue there till the end of the year. In the nation’s chart Moon – Mars will start from July till the end of the year. The alignment between Moon and Mars is not good which gives an indication that a prominent leader may have to resign from the government in very peculiar circumstances. Border issues with China and Pakistan could also create tension and unhappiness. Terrorist activities could also be on the rise which needs to be curbed forcefully. Natural calamities are not ruled out during this period.
Narendra Modi’s lagna is Scorpio and horoscope reads as under: Mars, Moon in lagna, Jupiter - 4th house, Rahu - 5th house, Saturn, Venus - 10th house and Sun, Mercury, Ketu in the 11th house. Moon – Jupiter are in operation in his chart from October 2014 to February 2016.
In the last 14 months Modi has gained solid ground in India as well as abroad. Moon has occupied the lagna along with Mars and Jupiter is placed in the 4th house. Although Moon is debilitated in his chart but ‘Neech Bhanga Rajayoga’ has taken place in his chart due to the presence of Mars in the lagna itself. There is a perfect ‘Gajkesari Rajayoga’ in his chart which has helped him to provide an unblemished government so far. Despite many odds against him, Modi has stood his ground beautifully and come out as a reasonably successful Prime Minister in these 14 months. He has travelled abroad maximum during this period and wherever he has gone, he earned great support and reputation. Icing on the cake was when he visited Nawaz Sharif on Christ
Moon and Saturn in Modi's Horoscope in 2016
Moon – Saturn will operate from 28th February 2016 to 28th September 2017. Moon is in the lagna and Saturn has occupied the 10thhouse. For Scorpio lagna Saturn is not a supportive planet and its placement in the 10th house which represents Rajya is not considered good. There is an inherent discrepancy between these two planets. The Moon does come out with many ideas and has a keen desire to execute them without delays and obstacles. Moon also has its conviction that his intentions are pure and he wants to bring about desired changes at a very high pace. Saturn follows different dictum where nothing is achieved in a tearing hurry, therefore each and every step needs to be scrutinised before one thinks of scaling the heights.
Saturn's Transit in Modi's Horoscope 2016
It is noted that Saturn in transit is crossing over Scorpio or natal Moon (lagna) of Modi. It means that in Modi’s chart sadhe sati is peaking also. Mars in transit also joins Saturn on 19th February 2016 and shall continue there till 17th June 2016. To add fuel to the fire Mars will become retrograde in Scorpio on 17th April where he will entangle with retrograde Saturn till it moves backward into Libra on 17th June. Sign Scorpio belongs to Mars and Saturn is most uncomfortable when crossing over Scorpio. In the transit of Mars in Scorpio, Mars would like to protect his house which Saturn in turn wants to destroy with all its might. Unfortunately in Modi’s chart Moon – Saturn dasa is in operation which is not good as explained elsewhere.
Will April and June prove to be tough for Modi?
A period between April and June may create problems for Modi from different quarters. It may not be a surprise to see that he will be facing opposition from his own party also. The opposition will be at loggerheads with him due to his many creative ideas. He should tighten his security, especially in this period. By the way, Modi is going through second dhaiyya of sadhe sati for the last more than one year. In other words, he made all the progress in 2015 when sadhe sati was peaking. Equation will change in 2016 because of the conjunction of Saturn – Mars and in his natal chart Moon – Saturn will operate. We are reminded that Mars – Saturn conjunction took place in Scorpio in 1956.
How Pandit Nehru's popularity declined?
Pandit Nehru was the most adorable Prime Minister of that time. He was forced to reorganise states of India on the basis of language. This became a contentious issue forever and after that Nehru’s position weakened terribly. The same conjunction of Mars – Saturn took place in 1986. Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister at that time and came into power after winning more than 400 Loksabha seats. Bofors issue suddenly came up around that time and Rajiv Gandhi lost power in the next general election. On both the occasions the conjunction was taking place in the same house i.e. Scorpio but both the planets – Saturn and Mars were not retrograde. Unfortunately in 2016 both the planets Saturn – Mars will be retrograde and remain together for almost
Analysing Rahul Gandhi's Horoscope
Rahul Gandhi was born on 19th June 1970 at Delhi when Taurus lagna was rising on the eastern horizon and horoscope reads as such: Mercury – Taurus, Sun, Mars – Gemini, Venus – Cancer, Ketu – Leo, Uranus, Pluto – Virgo, Jupiter – Libra, Moon, Neptune – Scorpio, Rahu – Aquarius and Saturn in Aries. Rahul Gandhi’s lagna is Taurus and its lord Venus is well placed in the 3rd house but the same Venus is debiliated in the navamsha chart. There is a basic sutra of astrology that if lagnesh is weak in the navamsha chart then it does not render a kind of results one expects. In the natal chart Venus is perfectly placed in the 3rd house which denotes prowess.
Will Rahul Gandhi triumph?
If we observe carefully then we come to this conclusion that Rahul Gandhi gets all kind of support from his Congress party and when this party was in power at that time he was getting full support from the government. Despite the best possible environment, Rahul Gandhi has not evolved as a mature politician so far. His party and nation has a lot of hopes from this gentleman but he has not delivered results as per people’s expectations.
Moon and Venus impact on Rahul Gandhi
Moon – Venus will operate in his chart till April 2017. Moon is debiliated in the 7th house and Venus is placed in the 3rd house. Both the planets are well aligned from each other which indicates that he will be made Congress President during this period with a lot of fanfare. A section of Congress does believe that once he is made the president of the party then he will have the freedom to run this party the way he wants. There is a great expectation from him perhaps that is the reason that his supporters are wanting to see him at the helm of party’s affairs.
Why Rahul can't be successful?
Moon is debiliated in the basic chart and aspected by Mercury who is posited in the lagna. Whenever there is a contact between Moon and Mercury in the chart then it creates a logical conflict in the mind of native. Venus is well placed in the basic chart but terribly weak because it has occupied the debiliated navamsha. Since there is a basic connectivity in both the planets in the natal chart this can enable him to become the Congress party president very soon. After becoming party president he would like to bring about many changes in the party which may be liked in the beginning but may not prove beneficial for the party in the long run. Some of his policies may go against the party or may not deliver desired results.
Arvind Kejriwal - the most controversial leader
The most controversial leader of the present time is Arvind Kejriwal. Although his party AAP had a grand sweep in the last Vidhan Sabha election where AAP demolished all the parties and got 67 seats out of 70. This must have been a record in Independent India put together all elections of Loksabhas and Vidhan Sabhas. Despite all this Kejriwal is struggling to run a smooth government right after the clean sweep of Delhi election. Kejriwal was born on 16th August 1968 at Hissar when Taurus lagna was rising on the eastern horizon and planetary configuration was as such: Moon – Taurus, Mars – Cancer, Sun, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Pluto – Leo, Ketu, Uranus – Virgo, Neptune – Scorpio, Rahu – Pisces and Saturn in Aries.
Arvind Kejriwal - love to hate?
Being a yoga karaka, the placement of Saturn in the 12th house is not considered very good. But this Saturn is retrograde as well as vargottam. Whenever a planet is debilitated and happens to be retrograde then it automatically sheds its negative traits to a great extent. A vargottam planet gains tremendous strength by virtue of being vargottam. For all practical purposes, this Saturn should be treated as an exalted Saturn. Nevertheless, we can’t forget that primarily this Saturn is debilitated and placed in the 12th house which is not good. Due to this special significance, Kejriwal goes through two extremes in his political career. There are times when he was the most adored politician & on another occasions he is most hated politician.
Arvind Kejriwal's Horoscope 2016
In his chart Jupiter – Moon are in operation till April 2017. Moon is exalted in the lagna and Jupiter has occupied the 4th house along with Sun, Mercury and Venus. This dasa will give him reasonably good results. His image will enhance in this period and whatsoever changes or policies he brings in in the Capital Delhi shall be appreciated by and large. His odd – even formula is already in progress. We believe this formula will be fairly successful in Delhi and shall be adopted by other states also. Kejriwal and the central government are at loggerheads right from day one. There won’t be any drastic change in their relationship but gradually Kejriwal and the AAP party will evolve by the end of this year.
Regional Parties will Triumph in 2016!
The acceptability of Kejriwal will be much higher than what we see in the beginning of the year. After seeing the horoscopes of BJP and Congress leader and their parties we come to this conclusion that BJP and Congress both will lose ground in this year and regional parties will gain prominence throughout India.
