Cancer is one such most dreaded health malady of modern times. We will try to answer the above questions through a case study of 'Brain Cancer'. It is a typical case of a MBBS doctor who was suddenly diagnosed of a malignant brain tumor in 2nd week of Dec 2009 and was operated on 28th December 2009, now undergoing follow up treatment. His condition is still critical. read more...

Col. Gour is convinced that the lagna of Obama has to Tula and Tula alone.
We had witnessed, perhaps for the first time, a synchronized global economic growth followed by a global downturn. The bubble burst on September 15th 2008 with Lehman Brothers filing for bankruptcy. 15th September also saw Merrill Lynch being bought by Bank of America for $50 billion. AIG- the major US insurance company was kept afloat by a $85billion rescue package. Washington Mutual, a major mortgage bank, was closed and sold to JP Morgan Chase. The effect was worldwide. Almost all governments scrambled to shore up failing banks and financial institutions. Hundreds of billions were pumped into the economy to keep the system afloat.
The theory behind the massive economic stimulus that governments took rests on the notion of "output gap". This is the difference between the actual output of the economy and its potential output. Lower actual output means that spending is insufficient to buy what the economy can produce. This gap results in less than optimal production and unemployment.
The US Congressional Budget Office (CBO) had estimated this gap to be 7% - this is the worst recession since World War II. This gap of 7% was expected to give rise to unemployment peaking at 9.4% in 2009 and to be around 7% in 2011. The US government has pledged $787 billion in economic stimulus, which is 7% of its GDP. This stimulus is to be spread over a 3 year period and is expected to pull the US economy out of recession and put it on a path of recovery. The fiscal responses of all other world governments were also based on their "output gaps".
We now examine the issue whether the Obama can pull the US out of this economic quagmire. The following charts are being used. 1. The foundation chart of USA 2. President Obama's birth chart 3. Chaitra shukla pratipada of 2009 and 2010.
First the foundation chart of USA
In August 2007 USA's Moon-Mercury period started. This period lasted till January 2009. Moon is 12th Lord and Mercury is 2nd lord. Mercury is placed in 12th house; is retrograde and in Rahu Ketu Axis. Saturn the 6th lord is placed in the 2nd house. Look at it from Moon: Moon is the 6th lord and Mercury is the 8th lord. This 8th lord Mercury (also the 5th lord) is placed in the 6th house and 6th lord is placed in the lagna.
2nd house represents government financial policy. It also represents banks and the financial institutions. 6th lord Saturn placed in the 2nd house with an aspect of Mars the 4th and the 9th lord from the 11th house opened the gates of unsecured loans (6th lord in 2nd house) fiscal indiscipline (2nd lord in 12th house). Remember this also happens to be 8th lord in the 6th house from Moon. Its retrogration added to its malefic nature. Rahu and Ketu bring in irrationality and greedy intelligence.
It is this period which saw the bizarre situation where financial institutions and banks which had run bankrupt and had received huge bail out sums; sanctioned obscene bonuses to their employees.
USA is now running Moon-Venus, which is till middle of April 2011. Venus as the 10th lord in 11th house in close conjunction with 5th and 8th lord Jupiter should cause some improvements on the Wall Street (5th house) and utilization of bail out money (8th house).
The mahadasha of Moon ends in October 2011. Mahadasha of Mars the yoga karaka for America commences in 2011. It is this dasha that is expected to pull America out of crisis..
Shri KN Rao had foreseen this much earlier and mentioned it that US recession will end in 2011.
We start with the examination whether Obama is beneficial for the nation. A President is generally beneficial to the nation if his horoscope vibrates well with the horoscope of the nation. Good vibration is achieved if :
a) The 2 lagnas are well placed from one another. Mutual trines, cadent houses and 3/11 are considered well placed.
b) The two Moons also need to be well placed.
c) The maha dasha lords also should be beneficial for each other.
Obama's ascendant is Libra and nation's ascendant is Leo. Leo and Libra are 3/11. The efforts of President would spell gains for the nation.
Now the Moon
Obama has Moon exalted in Taurus and the nation has the Moon in Aquarius. Taurus and Aquarius mutually are 4/ 10 - cadent houses, excellent.
Now the MDL's.
The nation runs Moon maha Dasha and Obama runs Jupiter maha dasha. Moon and Jupiter are friends and inspire each other.
It is also worth noting that nation will get Mars dasha after Moon. Mars is nation's yoga karaka. Obama will get Saturn's dasha after Jupiter in 2013 and Saturn is yogakaraka for Obama.
There is hope for a extremely good chance of Obama leading the nation to a slow, but definite recovery.
The Chaitra Shukla Pratipada of March 2009
(Hindu New Year Horoscopes of USA for 2009 abd 2010 )
Recession to recovery is been analyzed from houses 2,4,6,10.
2nd house : 2nd Lord is Moon. Moon is also the MDL. It is in 10th house with a digbali 3rd lord -(efforts), 5th lord Venus and lagna lord Mercury. 2nd lord is well placed to indicate recovery. 2nd house is also been aspected by its significator Jupiter. Jupiter's debilitation as 10th lord in 8th house in the Rahu-Ketu axis is indicative of Governments putting up funds to bail out ailing financial institutions. Ketu in the 2nd house explains the bizarre behaviour of bankers using bail out packages to pay hefty packages to pay themselves. This malaise was pointedly told to the Wall Street operators by Obama in his recent address. This is also in the agenda of the G-20 meet on 25-26 September 2009.
4th house : 4th lord aspects its own 4th house. Mars and Jupiter joins the 3 planets in the 10th house aspecting the 4th house. Housing is on a recovery path. Houses are once again been sold and foreclosures have sharply declined.
6th house : This house holds the crux of recovery as it deals with health care and jobs. Mars is the 6th lord, Saturn is the 8th lord. They are in opposition on 3/9 axis. Governments health care plans are been fought tooth and nail by electronic media (3rd house) and judgmental opinion makers. This should result in a improved health care package. Saturn has transited into Virgo and Jupiter is going to come out of its debilitation sign in December. From here Saturn and Jupiter will jointly influence Gemini the ascendant. This is the period which should see progress both in health care and jobs.
10th house : 10th house has both Moon the MDL and exhalted Venus the ADL with digbali Sun. The government is on track to pull out America from its stagnant economy.
Chaitra Shukla Pratipada 2010:
The nation is running Moon-Venus till 14th April 2011. Moon is 12th lord in 8th house and Venus is 10th lord in 8th house. In May 2010 Jupiter the 8th lord transits into pisces the 8th house. In May the yoga karaka Mars after a long stay in Cancer moves to Leo. Mars is the yoga karaka for this horoscope. Saturn Jupiter's double transit will influence 2nd, 4th and 8th houses. Mars will also influence 4th and 8th house from Leo.
The upliftment of banks 2nd house and financial institutions is on cards. Housing and infrastructure would also improve. It is interesting to note that President Obama would be running Jupiter-Mars from August 2010.
Further reinforcing the attempts of yogakaraka Mars to revitalize 4th, 7th and 8th house activities for the nation. In May 2010 Jupiter enters Pisces; Mars after a long stay in Cancer enters Leo.
The planetary position is that Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are in mutual kendras to be joined by Mars in July 2010 when Mars and Saturn would be conjunct in Virgo. This is incendiary and denotes violence and conflicts. We have known that American economy has thrived and grown on the armament and pharmaceutical industries. Violence and conflicts are essential for the promotion of these industries. America has been promoting wars at regular intervals to assist the national economic growth. It will be very interesting to see how America, in 2010, manages a profitable conflict-a Saudi backed, Arab-Iran conflict is a juicy prospect.
Pharmaceuticals are an obvious growth engine- swine flu and its global propaganda followed by the development of a vaccine by American firms and its global sale at American prices is a trailer of many more such scares.
The placement of four planets in the 8th house of the 2010 Chaitra Shukla Pratipada chart indicates discovery of underground wealth; this becomes very likely as Jupiter the 8th lord transits into the 8th house in May 2010. Is the US going to be lucky and discover oil and minerals in Afghanistan?
The way out America needs to follow an Indian example. Remember in the early nineties India had to mortgage its gold reserves at the Bank of London. Our fiscal response crafted by the then Finance minister and the present Prime Minister Shri Manmohan Singh was based on enhancing the domestic demand, increasing the savings and toning down the reliance on imports. America needs to go "swadeshi' in a big way, made in USA should be their creed.
In the G20 meet on 25/26 September our PM Shri Manmohan Singh suggested a three point formula to assist global recovery:
(a) Do not curtail the pledged bail out amounts. The stimulus needs to be continued.
(b) Guard against protectionism. Trading freely is essential for recovery and growth. There has to be greater dependence on domestic consumption and less reliance on exports.
(c) Better capitalization of the IMF and the World Bank to boost developing economies which can then assist the industrialized nations to sell their products.
America is now not very likely to be the global giant it's hey days appear to be over. Tomorrow's world is likely to be a world of global coalitions. India and China are likely partners of an US engineered economic coalition to promote US recovery.
Obama is good for the nation and is most likely to take the nation to its economic revival by his pragmatic and strong leadership.
