The Horoscope of Hindu New Year or Pisces New Moon gives general indication about coming one year for a particular country. The horoscope of Hindu New Year is cast for the time when Sun and Moon are at the same longitude in Pisces sign during the beginning of the lunar month of ‘Chaitra’. This is also called the ‘Chaitra Shukla Pratipada’ Kundali. It is the time when the spring season is ending and summer is about to come. In the horoscope of Hindu New Year 2023 for India the lagna lord is Mars which goes into the 8th house, while the lord of 7th house is Venus which is in the 6th house of conflicts. In Mundane Astrology the lagna is ‘central government cabinet’ and it is also seen for happiness of people in general in the country. The 7th house is the house of opposition parties, foreign relations and also war like situation. Since the beginning of Hindu New Year on 21st of March we have seen tremendous bitterness between the ruling BJP and opposition parties, led by Congress Party, on the issue of Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification as member of Parliament.
I have already made some forecast on the matter of Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification from Lok Sabha and possible happenings on this matter in months to come.
Horoscope of Hindu New Year 2023-24 for India
The Pisces New Moon is on 21st of March 2023 at 22 hours and 53 minutes (Indian Standard Time) at Delhi on Tuesday when at the time of Sun rise the Tithi is ‘Krishna Amavasya’. The ‘Pratipada’ will come at the Sun rise time of next day i.e. on 22nd of March on the day of Wednesday. So, the day lord of Wednesday, which is Mercury, will become the King of Hindu New Year 2023-24.
As per Brihat Samhita “In the year of Mercury, the hypocrites, thugs and wicked people get lots of success in their work. Those who do unique deeds, are proficient in singing, common citizens, painters and writers grow a lot. Mathematicians and war-skilled people also progress. There are mutually unexpected changes in the behavior of kings”.
As per Varsha Prabodha if Mercury becomes the King of New Year there will be good rains and celebrations take places in cites. People perform lots of charities and health of masses improves. So, Mercury becoming the King of New Year appears to be good for the global economy which is now in the process of recovery after COVID-19 Pandemic and Russia-Ukraine war which was started in February 2022.
Economic Progress foreseen: India will continue to be the fastest growing economy in the world as we have a strong 11th house in the horoscope of Hindu New Year 2023-24 (March 2023 to March 2024). In the Scorpio rising chart the 9th lord Moon is in conjunction with 10th lord Sun is making a grand Raja Yoga. The conjunction of 2nd and 5th lord Jupiter along with 11th lord Mercury in the 5th house is a good Dhana Yoga which is good for tourism, cinema, education, hospitality and entertainment industry in general.
All these four planets are giving aspect to the 11th house of gains. Mars the lagna and 6th lord in the 8th house also aspect the 11th from its fourth aspect. So, the 11th house getting the aspect of as many as 5 planets will make India the engine of global economic growth during financial year 2023-24.
Bitterness Between Ruling BJP and Opposition Parties increase : The placement of lagna lord Mars in the 8th house is inauspicious for the ruling central government. On the other hand the lord of 7th house of opposition parities goes into the 6th house of strife and disputes. The aspect of Saturn on it shows trouble for the opposition parties and also a major public protest movement against the government.
Unemployment Rate will reduce:
Prime Minister Modi had recently announced the recruitment drive for 10 lakh jobs which are vacant in the central government departments. The Hindu New Year chart indicate that apart from the central government many of the state governments will also make arrangements to fill the vacant posts in many of their departments which will bring positive growth in the job market. The strong 5th house, having benefic Mercury and Jupiter, in the Hindu New Year chart is also a good indication for students preparing for various competition examinations for getting jobs in government and semi-government sectors.
The unemployment rate in India was 7.4% as on February 2023 which is likely to reduce a little by the end of financial year 2023-24. In the Navamsha of Hindu New Year Leo sign is rising with Sun and Moon in the lagna and 11th lord Mercury is in the 3rd house which is auspicious for job market in the country. But in the Rashi chart Saturn from the 10th aspect the 10th house which shows that central government will not be able to fulfill her promise to fill the vacant 10 Lakhs jobs before March 2024 in any case.
Good Rainfall Foreseen: The minister of the year is Venus as Sun enters into Aries on Friday (14th of April 2023) which as per Varsha Prabodha is good for rainfall but gives trouble from pests to farmers. Moreover, the Meghesha (the minister of rains) is Jupiter as Sun enter into Ardra Nakshtra on 22nd of June 2023 at 17 hours 53 minutes. Sun enters into Ardra Nakshtra on Thursday Shukla Panchami (5th day of brighter half) when Moon is in Cancer sign which is also very good for rainfall in the entire year 2023.
Difficult Year for Farmers: In the Hindu New Year horoscope Saturn is in the 4th house in the Nakshatra of Rahu. The 4th house is the house which signify farmers. In Navamsha we have Mars in the 4th house. So, the presence of hard malefic planets in the 4th house of Rashi and Navamsha of Hindu New Year indicate some difficulty for country’s farmers. In planetary cabinet ‘Sasyesha’ (minister of farm production) becomes Moon as it enters into Cancer sign on Monday on 17 July 2023. As per Varsha Prabodha Sun’s the day lord of Sun’s entry into Cancer become the lord of farm production i.e. Sasyesha. When Moon become the lord of farm production then during that year cows gives plenty of mil and there is good rainfall and farm product will be higher. But since the 4th house in the Hindu New Year chart has malefic disposition so, it is highly likely that farmers in India will not get minimum support price guarantee and there will be some more agitations on the issues of farming in the coming year.
Controversies in mines and mineral sector foreseen: The planetary portfolio of ‘Neerasesha’ (lord of mines and minerals) goes to Sun as Sun enters into Makar Rashi (Capricorn sign) on 15th of January 2024 at 03:00 am on the day of Sunday . The prices of gold , copper, gem stones is likely to increase as Sun is the lord of mines and minerals. But since lagna and 6th lord Mars is in the 8th house so some controversy and scandal in the mining sector can’t be ruled out as per the Hindu New Year horoscope 2023-24.

Dangers Ketu Anter Dasha for India: In the foundation horoscope of India (chart 2) the Moon and Anter Dasha of Ketu is running from 10 December 2022 to 11 July 2023. Ketu is in the 7th house of war, opposition parties, foreign treaties etc. Ketu’s depositor is Mars which is in the 2nd house a ‘Maraka’ Bhava so the anter dasha of Ketu shows a major danger for the country. In Navamsha Ketu goes into the 6th house of strife and terrorist activities. Ketu is known as ‘Shikhi’ in the classical texts of Hindu Astrology. During the maha dasha of Ketu (1982 to 1989) in the foundation horoscope of India we had seen deadly Sikh insurgency in Punjab state. Now recently there had been menace of Khalistani supporters in Punjab state where it was reported that there were instances to revive terrorism in Punjab. But as per my astrological understanding the matter will subside after July this year when Ketu sub period will get over.
But before this the period from 21 March 2023 to 11 July 2023 can bring major terrorist activist, border tensions and crime against women. Now see the chart 1 of Hindu New Year where 7th lord is Venus going into the 6th house along with Rahu in the sign of Mars and getting aspect of Saturn which is functional malefic for this chart. A major crime against women and sex scandal will shock the entire nation within few days of the start of Hindu Year 2023. The lord of 6th house is Mars which is in the 8th house showing that a major scandal will trouble the central government throughout year which may have some foreign connection as 12th and 7th lord Venus is in the 6th house of disputes along with Rahu. In Navamsha of Hindu New Year chart the 7th house is getting the aspect of both Mars and Saturn which is another indication for rise in the sex crime against women in the country. Law related with marriage and Uniform Civil Code will also become a matter of major controversy in the country throughout Hindu New Year 2023-24.
A scandal in the banking sector is also possible as Mars in the Hindu New Year chart is giving aspect to the 2nd house of state exchequer.
In Moon Dasha and Venus Bhukti in the foundation horoscope of India (chart 2) from 11 July 2023 to 11 March 2025 matters related with women will come into prominence. In the election campaign for general elections 2024 women related issues will become very crucial for most of the political parties of India.
