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.
