Almost all the people around the world celebrate the dawn of the New Year and it is unsurprisingly synonymous
with making new resolutions and of course, this may have some reverberation. We eagerly look forward to
dawn of the New Year, hoping that our desires will be fulfilled, and also we will experience better governance
and a healthy atmosphere. For some of us, looking back on the previous year can do wonders to our
understandings that how far we have come. Every year, there exist our varied expectations of what could be
stored in this year for us. For this, we could get an answer through astrology i.e., by PAC (Placement,
aspect, and conjunction) of planets and their movements, etc. Mostly we expect what would happen in our
country, regarding employment opportunities, development, etc. Let us see the chart and know what would
happen in certain areas such as weather conditions and other development of the Nation. It is only probabilistic
and not deterministic.
