Only two or three astrologers did full time mundane astrology in earlier decades, late Hardeo Sharma Trivedi and Dr. B.V.Raman. These days only Gayatri Devi Vasudeva has been doing it in her magazine and there are some new names who dash off what they think are mundane predictions while they are only guesses. One of them who dashes them off through the internet and sends them to some individual emails writes with lot malice as he did recently giving a very fatal and totally hateful prediction about the end of India’s External Affairs Minister, Shrimati Sushma Swaraj.
Then added to it is the problem of doing only political predictions and calling it the beginning and end of mundane astrology. But then for men like me, doing more natal astrology, finding more time and correct horoscopes poses biggest problem.
It should also be known that an astrologer who cannot do mundane astrology and cannot predict for big people in power, fighting elections, is an incomplete astrologer. Worse is the “formula astrologer” who makes a piecemeal prediction on the basis of some formula about the placement or degrees of planets in a horoscope etc. In the age internet this has grown enormously and is ruining astrology fast.
I was taught that after making annual predictions, quarterly appraisal should be done and some future indications should be given. I am doing that for the first time here reviewing the predictions made in 2016 HOPES AND FEARS 2 January 2016, 3:25 PM.
Many have taken place and more will take place.
2.COURT CASES: fear or relief ?
As usual these cases are getting adjourned and are dragging as happens in India.
3.CASTEIST, COMMUNAL, TERRORIST ATTACKS
These have been happening continually and are increasing.
Third house which represents media does not appear to be pleasant with Mars and Saturn in it. It can mean some trouble for some television units known for pernicious extra territorial influences shaping their policies. But this combination can also mean some creative experiments also.”
Nothing has happened but there are only rumors.
It is obvious that communications, railways and airways are in clear danger this year. These can be normal accidents to sabotage of many types.
No big sabotage or accident has been reported yet.
6.Sports the brighter side
The brighter side of this combination is the possibility of Indian sportsmen faring well during this year. Already after the start of the mahadasha of Moon Indian players have done well in tennis, cricket and badminton and in wrestling Vijender Singh has distinguished himself in professional boxing by scoring a Technical Knockout over Hyuseinov for his third successive win in the pro circuit. It is also apparent that the scandals ridden BCCI will undergo many reforms after some more shocking revelations and report of the former Chief Justice of India R.M.Lodha.
Saina Nehwal has won the Australian badminton champion after fourteen months of no achievement and more spectacular has been the achievement of the Indian hockey team in the championship trophy where it won the silver medal after the bronze in 1982. In Rio Olympics India can hope to increase its tally medals and end up with best ever performance.
7.The Second fear
The tenth lord Mercury in the eighth house and Mars, the eighth lord aspecting the tenth house does not show any dilution in the troubles with the government of Narendra Modi which will be forced to do some unhappy shuffling and reshuffling the central cabinet and also hear the tragic news of some tragedy to some big leader.
As I write this piece (20 June) it has not happened yet but is due this week is the rumor.
8.Black Money in foreign banks:
The exchange of Jupiter the fourth and seventh lord with Sun in the seventh house with Moon the eleventh lord and exalted Venus the second and the ninth lord is good for the image of India internationally as well as for the recovery of Indian money in foreign banks.
9 Political Parties
Among Indian political parties, it affects different political parties in different ways. The Congress party may see a big change and Rahul
Gandhi may become its president after full eighteen years of Sonia Gandhi’s notable dominance may happen in January soon after the transit of Rahu.
BJP will find the presence of Rahu in Simha affecting it in many ways, may shuffle its central cabinet and even the party president may have to step down. Prime Minister Narendra Modi accused of dictatorial tendencies and centralization of powers in his hand will find this year very uneasy in many ways.
Arvind Kejriwal of the AAP will have to go through an ordeal both and mental.
Politics always hot and debatable in India, one should look deep into these political parties and their immediate performance in the coming year, once again of elections.
The progress has been slow and not spectacular as was expected some months ago.
The Congress party
The oldest party (1978) has to reconcile itself to the end of the dynasty and hope to do better in 2017 in some state like Punjab.
Since its victory in Assam, there is a slight upsurge in its fortunes which had sunk low after the Bihar elections. It can hope to do well in UP and even come near to forming a government in a difficult and enigmatic coalition.
No political leader I have known has three debilitated planets in dashamansha as Arvind Kejriwal and his best days now seem to be behind him.
AAP whose foundation chart is controversial with me sticking to Dhanu lagna, I see no future for it. In its present Venus Moon period it will be in self destructive mood.
Unfortunately we do not have authentic and verified horoscopes of other political parties, mostly regional, to see a complete political picture in the coming elections in some states in 2017.
No political predictions should be given on the basis of flimsy astrological data.
