I was looking into the Astrology of this great nation India, where I am born. Taking the date of Independence day and an approximate time which is similar in other Astrological Websites, I found that India has the Planet Rahu in the Ascendant. Rahu in Krittika Nakshatra provides great energy to this Nation. The inhabitants of this Nation will never be afraid to challenge as well as move ahead with an agenda. Krittika is Agni and when Astrological Planet Rahu is positioned here at around 5 degree and 4 minutes in the Venus Zodiac, this increases the fire element.

Interestingly, I was reading Rig Veda and the First discussion in it is was about Agni Dev (The Lord of Fire). Fire stands for purity, for destruction and creation of new one. Agni is the source of heat for which we all humans exist. Though Krittika is ruled by Lord Sun, however, it gets exalted in Ashwini Nakshatra. The behavior of Agni depends on your personal spiritual growth and on how you connect with this great divine force.

Now what happens when Rahu is placed in Krittika. Generally Krittaka helps in signifying authority, power, vitality and strength. However, this fire can be in the form of intelleginece, generation of ideas, jealosy and ego. So, Rahu in this sign will lead to desires and hence this Nation will have many desires to excel in diverse sectors. The passion and the determination will lead this Nation to move ahead with much energy. At just 180 degrees on the 7th house of Scorpio in the D1 ascendant chart was Planet Ketu. This planet positioned in Scorpio will enhance the qualities of the sign. This Nation has always fought for its rights. By this combination, it is is presumed that this Nation will not be satisfied with its achievements but will strive for more perfection.

However, this combination also provides very detrimental effect on relationships within states. So, this Nation needs to move ahead giving importance to all nations keeping aside the fact that if it is a island nation, economically improving nation or larger nation. The main idea is to maintain a balance amongst all.

The main income of this country will come from Intellectual Domains, Sectors in Medical fields, Engineering, IT, Jewellery, Computer Education, Publishing, Environmental fields etc. Though Agriculture, Mining, Oil& Gas, Petroleum should have been the focus, it gets challenges due to the closeness of the Planet Sun with Planet Saturn. Even any form of artistic work though done, does not get the world recognition easily.

In terms of the Business Sector, this nation will try to provide great effort in Agriculture, Mining, Oil & Gas, Petroleum etc. Also construction will be another Area, where it can get greater success. All these due to proximity of so many planets in the 3rd house of the Ascendant Chart. Lets now analyse through Astrology as what may happen with India in 2020. So, the focus during this period will be Oil & Natural Gas, Petroleum, Agriculture, Construction and water.

In 2020, suddenly, there will be focus on water, agriculture, agricultural products, Oil & Natural Gas, Petroleum and the financial trouble of India, which is supposed to lessen. Now, will be the time, when the country will see economists joining hands to come together towards making India financially more vibrant. It is presumed that India’s financial condition will be better, though there will be ups and down’s, which is likely to settle after January, 2020.

After September 2020, most of the Internal Problems is likely to get resolved. However, in between there will be a time, when the Internal Disturbance is likely to flare up due to Planet Rahu and Mars Combination. It might be somewhere around the month of April-May, 2020. The Authorities need to be careful in handling local issues, which may get out of control if not handled with patience and understandings. In Business the manufacturing and engineering sector is likely to get a boost during 2020 for India. The Automobile Sector is also likely to recover better and is likely to do well from January 2020. Fragrance Industries, Clothing and Apparel Designs are the sectors which are going to improve in 2020.

With this may I take this opportunity to wish you an advance Happy New Year 2020 to all my National and International Readers. May all of you remain happy and stay blessed. Thanks for your time and thanks for all your support and comments.

The above small brief is a general prediction and are my personal views which may not match with astrologers or others in the same or related sectors.

While Destiny is hard work and luck, we wish everyone great success in one’s good endeavors. The above article is based on my experience of reading astrology subject and looking into the practicalities of the situation based on horoscope analysis for years.

On Independence Day, let me write about our country India and the astrology of this great nation. After my astrological analysis and taking 15 August 1947 night 12:00 am as the Independence Day time, it is found that India has Taurus Ascendant and Cancer Moon Sign as per Vedic Astrology. Also, India falls in between the axis of Planet Rahu and Ketu. So, analysing the same, the following may/ likely to happen for India:

  1. India need to try hard to get things happen in the world. India need to push its agenda before the world communities to come out in flying colours. So, after much efforts, India will succeed to get through. As per the vedic horoscope of India, the astrological planets Rahu and Ketu will obstruct, due to Kal Sarpa Yoga but with constant effort India can break the Ice. So, Leaders from India need to move out and spread their voice to be heard by the world.
  2. Any new system or ideas in India is likely to take time for implementation and to be accepted by the people. In the horoscope of India, the planets Sun, Moon, Venus and Saturn are placed in Cancer zodiac, which is the third house from Ascendant. So, being cancer sign, sentiments are very high here in India. Whenever there are emotions, the whole country will get sudden motivation and inspiration as One Nation and that’s when the Nation will stand together.
  3. The 7th Lord is in 2nd House and that explains the reason, why India is a huge opportunity for Business and Entrepreneurship. Astrological Planet Ketu exalted in the seventh house says that India will be a land of opportunities for business as well as spiritual activities.
  4. However, with Saturn turning direct from September 2018, India may face financial problems and challenges. Besides, Mars and Saturn confrontation may make people impatient, which may be reduced through effective soft communications.
  5. The dairy sector, milk, water Industries etc are going to get a boost after September, 2018. Very soon after October, 2018 onward, India is likely to witness major boost in Business and Entrepreneurship.

With this We wish my readers of India a very Happy Independence Day.

Stay Happy, read more, remain Happy and smile a lot.
