On behalf of the ISHWAR CENTER, I wish you all a very Happy New Year!!!
Many must be looking forward to some positive changes in this New Year, and seeking some answers and predictions for 2011. So let me describe the planetary positions and the influences of the planets on America and for individuals, on basis of their Moon signs .
As of this morning, the Moon is in Scorpio, with Venus and Mercury. The 2nd house, which is the point of finances and wealth, is occupied by Mars, Rahu and Sun in Sagittarius, Jupiter is placed in the 5th house in Pisces, Ketu in the 8th house in Gemini, and Saturn in the 11th house in Virgo. These planetary positions are as per Hindu Vedic Astrology.
Although the New Year began after midnight on December 31st 2010, but I shall do the readings on basis on the sign occupied by the Moon at sunrise today.
The juxtaposition of Mars, Sun and Rahu in the 2nd house does not auger well for the financial situation of the country. There could be some difficult situations in the government, and also some difficult situations regarding the Police or the military. Leaders in the parliament will be sparring with words and there could be some disrepute amongst some politicians. The medical insurances policies will also come up with some problems and there could be some implications regarding medical benefits and coverage.
Poor economy continues to bog down the country, and progress will be slow. There could be some serious talks about money/currency/exchange rates etc and some countries will try to disassociate with other countries as they would dispute the supremacy of own financial positions. This could be in Europe.
America will continue a cautious and slow approach with the Eastern countries as they lack trust, subsequently the trades will get affected and whatever financial gains America hopes to get from exports/imports will get delayed. However, the situation will start changing from mid January onwards. But this country will not be repressed for long and from November this year, 2011, The USA will get relieved of its stressful lows and will boom again.
The transportation will get more expensive, whether Air, Sea or land. There would also be some sort of restrictions on travels, or some sort of limitations, like on baggage, or travel times or transfers etc.
As I wrote in my earlier newsletters -" American economy can only come up again if they join hands with a couple of Eastern countries, specially India . Somehow I see India as the upcoming country in the world, and by 2014, could possibly become the most successful country in the world -" economically, politically and by way of overall progress and transformation.
The weather will be hard this year, and there may be some major storms coming soon. From mid February onwards, there would be relief from many things and there would be a small boom for the country. This would surely happen!
India will continue to prosper in all fronts, barring disputes with Pakistan and threats from terrorists. Soon, there will be some new policies and leaderships which will be good for India. Travels, show business, entertainment, food business will do good and there will be plenty of foreign trades and gains.
For Pakistan, the situation does not look good. There will be uncertain fears and the country will be let down on many fronts by its own parties. Militancy and terrorism will be in prime focus and common man will suffer. Between now and the next 11 months, some military or political leader will die an unnatural death.
Now let's discuss some individual cases.
Here, some basic predictions are given on basis of the Moon signs of people, and NOT the Sun signs , that westerners generally follow. The calculations of the Hindu Vedic Astrology are different from the western system and subsequently the predictions are also different. The Vedic system has very accurate calculations, as the Zodiacs are calculated from the 1st star of the belt of Aries, which is a fixed point. The Hindu Vedic system also calculates the precession of the equinoxes, which the western system does not do. The western system calculates their Zodiac from the Sun's entry into Aries, which is not right as it is a relative point. As a result of these errors, there is a difference of about 22 degrees in the Zodiac calculations. So if the western system reads your Sun in Scorpio, it may actually be in Libra!
Now, let us see what various Moon signs would experience this year.
