In the horoscope cast for New Year 2017, Lord of Ascendant and fourth(Mercury & Jupiter) having
exchange of houses, having temporary friendship with each other give good indications in respect of
strength to Government, success in elections, control of prices, efficient administration, good economy,
success in explorations, mega constructions and projects taking shape etc., But the fact that Jupiter (lord
of 4th) stationed in an enemy’s sign Virgo dilutes the good indications substantially. Jupiter considers
Mercury, the sign dispositor of Virgo, as an enemy. Also, Mercury is placed in a ‘vedha’ position to
Jupiter. This will result in intolerance, discontentment and agony of the intelligentia, and country as a
whole, missing the goals in the last minute. The retrogression of Mercury, angular placement of Saturn
with Mars may result in anti-reservations campaign gaining wider base this year.
Rising sign Virgo at 10° 34’, its lord Mercury placed
in the 4th, having exchange of houses with the lord of
4th Jupiter give favorable indications in respect of
Ascendant and 4th houses. Strength to Government,
success in elections, control of prices, efficient
administration, good economy, success in explorations,
mega constructions and projects taking shape etc.
But the fact that Jupiter (lord of 4th) stationed in an
enemy’s sign Virgo dilutes the good indications
substantially. Jupiter considers Mercury, the sign
dispositor of Virgo, as an enemy. Also, Mercury is
placed in a ‘vedha’ position to Jupiter. This will result
in intolerance, rebellious mood of the intelligentia,
unable to reach the goals or missing the goals in the
last minute. The retrogression of Mercury, angular
placement of Saturn with Mars may result in antireservations
campaign gaining wider base this year.
|GDP growth :
India is expected to register a 7.6 per
cent growth rate in the year 2016. According
to World Bank Report, our economy can register
7.7 growth rate in the year 2017. This is because of
the large boost from historically low oil prices in the
past one and half years. Prospects of a normal
Monsoon will help to activate the stalled engines of
agricultural growth and rural demand, trade and
private investment. While doing so the monetary
policy ensures that demand from urban households and public investments, and also the working engines
of the economy do not run out of fuel.
|India's performance in Sports events :
sports events to be held in the year 2017 are:
1) ICC World Test Championship: Indians love
Cricket more than anything else. In 2017 ICC World
Test Championship will be held in England and Wales
from 1st June to 18th June. Contestants in Group-A
are Australia, Bangladesh, England and Newzealand.
Group-B:India, Pakistan, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
India plays against Pakistan on June 4th, Against Sri
Lanka on June 8th and against South Africa on June
11th in the year 2017. Finals will be on June 18th. As
per the planetary positions on the above dates and
after superimposing the day charts on the dawn of
2017 and also taking into account the Vedhas afflicting
the major planets, India will get a tough fight with
Pak but may scrap through. India is likely to reach
2) Women Cricket World Cup: This will be held from
June 26th to July 23 in England(Ireland). Presently
India is in the 6th place in 8 ranks in Women’s Cricket.
India will give memorable performance.
3) Delhi International Triathlon in February, 2017.
Because of Sama Saptaka (180 degrees) position of
Jupiter with Mars during February 2017, India will
win medals in Swimming, Cycling and Running.
Ruling Party at the Centre :
In Moon Dasa Mercury bhukti, BJP could capture
power in the General Elections of 2014. This Party
could not make any progress in Assembly elections
in 2016 in Ketu bhukti. BJP will be in Moon Dasa
Venus bhukti from February 2016 to October 2017.
Venus as the lord of 4th and 11th placed comfortably
in 11th could bestow favorable results, but not a
comfortable win. In Goa, Punjab and Uttarakhand,
BJP will consolidate its position.
|Four planets in Retrogression :
Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Mercury will be in
retrogression from 10 April 2017 to 15 April 2017.
During this period, Retrograde planets Jupiter, Saturn
and Venus will be in angular placement to one another
and Retrograde Mercury will be in trinal relation with
Retrograde Saturn. After considering the
constellations in which these retrograde planets will
be placed at that time, we can conclude that India
will receive many positive results in respect of
Science and Technology, new innovations in
agriculture, boost to air travel and substantial increase
in our Exports with huge rise in foreign currency
reserves. India is hitherto dependent on import of
vegetable oils for meeting the domestic demand and
so far it has not reached self-sufficiency. This period
will witness steep increase in export of vegetable oils,
commercial crops, iron ore, leather products and
textiles from India. Retrograde Mercury- Saturn trinal
relation ensures the flourishing of Commerce in leaps
and bounds within India. This is also due to
implementation of GST, removing barriers between
inter-state and intra-state commercial activities
through uniform Tax structure. During this period, it
is most likely that Modi Government will introduce a
Bill in Parliament for eradicating corruption in India.
Many mega-projects in PPP (Private-Public-
Participation) mode will take shape during this period.
Tourism Sector as a whole will receive a boost in this
year and State Governments will vie with each other
in attracting Tourism in their respective States. This
year, Government will give top priority to “Agriculture
revolution”, just like Information Technology is given
importance earlier. This will result in many modern
farms getting started by big Corporate companies in
the next 2 to 3 years.
Uniform Civil Code & Triple Talaq :
The row over
the issue of Uniform Civil Code is very high at the
concluding part of the year 2016. The All India
Muslim Personal Law Board(AIMPLB) is strongly
opposing the Code, saying that Muslim personal law
is based on divine law and cannot be altered. But
the Supreme Court is most likely to give nod to the
implementation of Uniform Civil Code in the period
from April to June 2017, which will rake-up protests
and agitations. It is also likely that “Status-quo”
orders may have to be issued by Larger Bench to
subside the unrest.
|Indian Independence Chart
India was running Saturn Dasa at the time of
Independence. At the dawn of 2017, India will be in
Moon Dasa Mars bhukti upto February 2017 and then
it will continue in Rahu bhukti till the year-end. Bhukti
Lord Rahu placed in Ascendant makes agriculture,
cattle-rearing and horticulture sectors prosper well
with abundant production of Rice, pulses, oil seeds
and milk. In this period, visits of foreign dignitaries
from Pak, Afghanistan, China and Soviet Union are
indicated for resolving sensitive issues and bilateral
Indian Republic Chart
India became Republic in Ketu Dasa and will be
running Jupiter Dasa Mercury bhukti at the dawn of
the New Year 2017 and will continue for the entire
year. This period is exceptionally good for Service
Sector and start-up companies, multi-national firms,
reforms in Air-Travel benefitting the travelers, etc.
This year, new innovations/theories in Physics and
Mathematics will be propounded by Indians, which
will attract global attention.
Detailed Analysis of New Year 2017 chart
India’s economic growth in 2017 will be on par with that of last year, if not better.
Service Sector would dominate the Manufacturing Sector. Government would prefer
BPOs (Business Process Outsourcing), instead of providing direct employment.
Large-scale inter-caste, inter-religion marriages will occur and marital problems will
increase. Number of divorces will increase considerably.
Stock exchange rules and listing agreements will be further tightened to catch hold of
fly-by night companies.
Despite best efforts, India will not be in a position to win many laurels in sports and
other prime events.
Imminent tussle for protection of land from foreign invasion is indicated.
First House :
This house is fortified by the placement
of Jupiter, the lord of 4th and 7th. Good health,
prospects, feelings and ways of thinking about
objectives and unity among the people of the country
are indicated in the ascendant. Stability of Government
is also indicated. Jupiter in the ascendant ensures the
year to be a "No Scam Year". (Readers may recall
that the years 2005 and 1993, wherein Jupiter
occupied the rising ascendant are proved to be “No
Scam years”. The strong Ascendant and 10th house
indicate that Government will take very bold steps
this year, like bringing back Black-money hoarded
clandestinely in Swiss banks. But, this house is
afflicted by the 7th aspect of Uranus. Placement of
Uranus in the 7th would impact, by and large, intercaste,
inter-religion marriages Divorces will happen
in large numbers this year. Rift in married life,
eccentric behavior of life-partners are some
indications affecting the public at large in the year
Second House :
Money, materials possessions,
property, using the past experience and knowledge
acquired already for present growth are indicated from
this house. Lord of Second house Venus along with
arch-rival Mars is posited in the 6th, indicating
discouraging factors in the above areas. This is further
deteriorated by the fact that neither the second house
nor the second lord is receiving any beneficial
Third House :
The third lord Mars posited in the
sixth and the third house occupied by Saturn indicate
unfavourable trends with regard to Stock Markets,
Transport, Railways, Posts and Telegraphs. Stock
exchange rules and listing agreements will be further
tightened to catch hold of fly-by-night companies.
Also, third house is "Vikrama sthana" (House of
Success). Despite best efforts, India will not be in a
position to achieve success, owing to the above
planetary indication in the matter of Sports or other
prime events. The adage “Many a slip between cup and lip" will be felt by Indians in more than one time
Fourth House :
Fourth lord auspicious Jupiter placed
in the ascendant gives favorable indications in respect
of agriculture, crops, minerals, roads and Highways,
scientific projects, educational institutions etc. But it
is at the concluding degrees (27:01), which can reduce
the benefits by at least 50%. Placement of Sun and
Mercury in the fourth house indicates imminent tussle
for protection of land from foreign invasion.
Fifth House :
Moon placed in the fifth house ruled
by Saturn indicates female births increasing
substantially in this year. The “Beti bachao, Beti
padhavo” slogan of the Government would become
successful. Musicians, cine artists and Bullion market
are also governed by this house, indicating fluctuating
fortunes by and large. But the aspect of Jupiter would
keep a check on the fluctuations. Water sharing
disputes between Karnataka & Tamil Nadu, Andhra
& Telangana would remain unresolved this year also.
Sixth House :
Venus and Mars, the arch-rivals placed
in the sixth, speak ill of the causatives of sixth house
viz., internal and external enemies, debt burden, health
centres, surgery, labour disputes etc., The 6th lord
Saturn will be in retrogression from April to August
2017 in Sagittarius and Scorpio. This period is very
much unfavorable with regard to the above issues.
Seventh House :
Lord of 7th placed in the ascendant
give positive indications in respect of relations and
agreements with other countries, wars, dominating
the Opposition parties etc., Uranus stationed in the
7th would dilute the strength to some extent. This year
also, planets are not favourable to the Opposition
Eighth House :
Lord of 8th placed in the 6th foretells
adversely in respect of Accidents, murders, suicides,
agitations against the Govt. etc., As indicated above,
Government has to face a number of agitations from
the public, in respect of religious intolerance, pro and
anti-reservations agitations this year also, resulting in
violence and loss of life. Negotiations made by
Government in this regard will not yield results.
Nineth House :
Venus, the lord of 9th, though placed
in the 6th, receives the aspect of natural benefic Jupiter
on the 9th house, getting strength. The issues involving
Trustees, religious institutions, religious harmony,
Aviation, sophisticated forms of communication,
Changes in the Cabinet are known from this house.
9th house is indicating good results regarding the above.
Cabinet reshuffle is expected in Mid April 2017, when
Venus would become Direct in Pisces or around 10th
June 2017 when Jupiter becomes Direct from
Tenth House :
This house shows the power of
Government and also indicates the President and heads
of Governments. Placement of lord of the 10th in an
angle and being aspected by its lord makes this house
strong. Besides, this house is also being aspected by
12th lord Sun, which is not a good indication. This
indicates efforts of Government at Centre trying to
destabilize a few State Governments will boomerang.
Eleventh House: :
The eleventh house Cancer is being
aspected by its lord Moon, indicating positive results
with regard to Parliament, Assembly, gains from
friendship, windfall gains, foreign investments etc. Bills
passed by Parliament and Assemblies for the welfare
of the public would receive overwhelming response
from people. Modi would continue his efforts in
attracting Foreign Direct Investment this year also,
which will yield fruits in a significant manner.
write-up 'Dawn of 2016' in EST Jan. 2016, this
scribe predicted (on 11th house predictions) that
the much-awaited Bill on Disclosure of Black
Money will be passed in 2016. This came true in
the year 2016 itself. This became statute as
"Chapter IX of the Finance Act 2016—Income
Declaration Scheme 2016". This scheme has
received good response and is expected to bring
large revenues to exchequer.
Eleventh House: :
Lord of 12th, Sun placed in the 4th
gives adverse indications with regard to the causatives
of it i.e., jails and their officials, ashrams, orphanages,
secret enemies, Black-marketers, vehicle thieves, anti-social elements etc., Moreover, the aspect of Saturn
on the 12th house would give further complications.
Hoarding and Black marketing of essential commodities
will be on the rise in this year. Prices of Iron and Steel,
pulses, Gingelly and other vegetable oils will shoot-up,
during the retrogression of Saturn.
GST Implementation :
As predicted by this scribe in “Dawn of 2016” the
GST Bill was passed by Parliament and the assent
of 50% of State legislatures was also obtained,
paving the way for implementation of the same from
The planetary position at the sun-rise time of April
2017 is examined, to test the success of GST
implementation all over the country. Rising sign is
Pisces. Venus placed in it is exalted but retrograde,
and is conjunct with Sun. Second house Aries is fortified
with the placement of Mars, Seventh house by Jupiter
and Tenth house by Saturn.
Because of placement of Sun in the ascendant, with
mutual aspect of Retrograde Jupiter, prices will rise
abnormally with the implementation of GST for the
first three to four months, resulting in unrest in trade
and consumer circles. But this will subside gradually
with the availment of input benefit by trade circles,
resulting in reduction of prices.
Horoscope of Narendra Modi :
The Ascendant lord Venus is in the 11th in its own
constellation Purvaphalguni, aspected by 3rd and 6th
lord Jupiter. Presently Modi is in Moon Dasa, Jupiter
bhukti, upto Dec.2016 and thereafter in Saturn bhukti
till the end of the year. Moon, as the lord of 11th placed
in an upachya, house, elevated him to the coveted post
of Prime Minister. The bhukti lords Jupiter and Saturn
are placed well, giving strength to Dasa lord. 2017 will
be the best to Mr.Modi, in respect of international
reputation, success, public support etc., He will take
bold steps in economic front this year, which will
enhance his image further.
