As per the system of Hindu Astrology when Sun and Moon comes at same degrees in Pisces sign the horoscope cast for that moment gives indication about coming next one year. This year on the 24th of March Sun and Moon will be in Pisces at same longitudes at 14:58 hours as per Indian Standard Time. The Cancer lagna will be rising at that moment with Mars and Saturn in the 7th house showing a war like situation for India which it is facing because of a tough and unprecedented challenge of corona virus at present. On the 5th of March earlier i had written one post “Planets and Fear Psychosis of Corona Virus”
I had discuss then the horoscope of various countries including India in the context of current humanitarian crisis we are facing because of the outbreak of this pandemic.
Chart 1. Horoscope of Hindu New Year 2020 for India
In the Hindu New Year horoscope two hard malefic planets Mars and Saturn are in the 7th house which is a Maraka house. In Medini Jyotish malefic planets in the 7th house are bad for country’s diplomatic relations, economy, business and social harmony. On the eve of Hindu New Year India has entered into the phase of partial lock-down. In the Bhava Chalit of Hindu New Year Mars and Saturn moves into the sixth house to get conjoined with Jupiter and Ketu. This indicate that this fear psychosis situation will also return due to some other national emergency even after this corona virus danger goes pass. We should not forget that there will be back to back three major eclipses in the months of June-July out of which two are visible in India. I had written few write up on them for the January issue of Modern Astrology magazine and also for the Express Star Teller magazine. Out of the three two eclipses are visible in India during summer which are falling across the 2/8 axis of her Taurus lagna foundation horoscope.
Now coming back to the corona virus danger the Hindu New Year horoscope given above shows some ray of hope as benefic Venus is in the 10th house under the aspect of yoga karaka Mars and also 5th lord Jupiter which is excellent. The combine efforts of central and state government to restrict corona virus from spreading into communities will succeed. In the month of April the situation will start coming under control in India and after 26th of April when Mercury will join Sun in the Aries sign there will be lots of relief from corona virus epidemic in India. Later when Mars will move into Aquarius on the 5th of May situation will start becoming better.
Mercury is the King of New Year and Moon is Minister
The King of the year is the planet which rule the day of Chaitra Shukla Pratipada i.e. day lord of Pisces New Moon. Since Chaitra Shukla Pratipada falls on the Wednesday so the King of the Hindu New Year will be Mercury. The minister of the year is day lord when Sun enter into Aries. This year minister of the year is Moon as Sun is going to enter into Aries on the 13th of April on Monday. But a noticeable point here is that Minister of the year Moon is under the bad aspect of 7th and 8th lord Saturn which will create trouble for some very senior leader of the ruling government at center.
Two benefic planet taking the important portfolio of King and Minister is another positive indication that India will be able to stop corona from becoming a major epidemic here. As per my old research on the planetary combinations and epidemic in India the astrological indicators are giving a positive sign for India which will be able to prevent corona from becoming a large epidemic. After Jupiter’s joining Saturn in the Makar Rashi (Capricorn Sigh) on the 30th of March the lagna of the foundation chart of India will come under the benevolent aspect of the most auspicious among all the planets.
Chart 2. Foundation horoscope of India
India is under stressful Moon-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari. Saturn is in enemy sign Cancer but since it is the Yoga Karaka planet for Vrishabha lagna (Taurus ascendant) so India is likely to get protection by some divine grace. The transiting Jupiter, Saturn and Mars in the 9th house Capricorn also indicate the same. But then this is not a good indication for the economy about which i have been giving astrological forewarns since early 2019. Indian economy will further plunge into an economic recession and would be start coming out of it only after July 2021 very slowly when Jupiter will move into Aquarius. The Moon-Saturn Vimshottari dasha is also till June 2021 so afterwards the Moon-Mercury dasha will give some growth in the ‘real economy’ of India and also to the stock market. Mercury rules the 2nd (finance) and 5th (stock markets) houses of the foundation chart of India also suggest the same.
Saturn-Jupiter conjunction will bring rise of socialism worldwide including India during 2020-2021
However, on the positive side the vices of capitalism will start getting exposed and general public will start pressuring their government around the world to move its policies towards public welfare. People around the world will start criticizing their leaders for the lack of medical facilities to fight against corona virus pandemic. The same trends will also be visible in India as people here may force their leaders to stop projects like ‘Bullet Trains’ and instead diverts public funds for the development of basic medical facilities. Saturn-Jupiter conjunction will took place in the 9th house of the foundation chart of India which also shows that general public will become more religious and will also pay more attention towards old cultural traditions. There will be a boom in alternative medical treatment, pharmacy, Yoga, Ayurveda, organic farming sectors.
On the other hand the real-estate, hospitality, airlines, entertainment sector will continue to struggle even after corona virus getting disappear by the end of this year. Because of this government will have to increase more spending in the social sector to give boosts to the economy. In the horoscope of Hindu New Year (Chart 1) Sun and Moon are in the 9th house giving the similar indication.
In the Hindu New Year horoscope 9th lord Jupiter is in the 6th house giving aspect to the 10th house shows judiciary giving some major decisions in favor of the government this year. The 8th lord Saturn with 5th and 10th lord Mars is excellent yoga for new medical researches taking place. The 12th lord Mercury in the 8th house is also a good combination which could mean that India will succeed to develop some vaccine or medicine to cure corona virus. This medicine will be produce at war front which will bring major growth in the pharma sector of our country during next one year.
