The 5th house in general rules over Stock markets.
The lord of 5 in its own house in conjunction with the
7th lord Saturn forms a first-rate Parasari Raja Yoga.
For a period of eighteen months, commencing
from New Year 2019, there will be a Bullish run
in the market.
Thanks to Institutional buying in the
period March - June 2019, volatility on account of
political factors would tend to get suppressed, resulting
in the consistent growth in stock prices. Favourable
factors such as growth, development, innovation and
improvisation would lead to a run on the Indian
bourses. The Nifty would touch an all time High.
Retrogression of major planets is usually a
period of volatility in the Stock markets.
following periods would be of significance in this
||8 July - 1 August
||31 October - 21 November
||17 February - 10 March
||10 April - 11 August
General condition of state, prosperity, Public health,
mood of the masses and the confidence of the people on their ruler are all indicated by the First house.
A unique feature of the Solar New Year 2019 is
the perfect trine between the Ascendant (Leo),
Ascendant lord Sun and Jupiter in Sagittarius.
This is an excellent formation, which augurs well
for the country.
Superimposing Solar New Year chart on Republic
The sign Pisces rises in the Republic Day Chart.
Adopting the Theory of Inclusive Methodology of
Dr.Ravi Rao, by superimposing the Solar New Year
chart on the Republic day Chart , we find that the
lord of 10 is quite well placed in the 10th. The lord of
4 (which denotes 10th from the 7th) is debilitated and
also weak in navamsa.
The anti - incumbency factor will not be sufficiently
strong to displace the party in power at the Centre.
The road to formation of big alliance of Opposition
parties will also be besieged by obstacles and
bottlenecks. As the lord of 10 (Venus) is aspected by
the lord of 7 (Saturn), a coalition government would
get formed at the Centre as an outcome of the Lok
Sabha elections, either through a pre- poll or through
a post - poll alliance. The stability of the new
government is vouchsafed by the presence of
Yogakaraka Mars in the 10th and its aspect on the 7th
lord Saturn. Mood of anti-incumbency would prevail
in Haryana and Jharkhand.
The 2nd house governs the national wealth, the
exchequer, trade, money matters and Revenue. Due
to political compulsions, the government would choose
to forego revenue and there would be increase in
freebies and subsidies. The basic exemption limit in
Income tax would undergo a steep increase. The
Union Budget 2019 would be a liberal one and would
receive the wholehearted support of business leaders
and the common man. No new taxes or levies would
be imposed. The fiscal deficit would go up as a result
of these measures.
The 3rd house denotes transport including railways,
airlines, mobile phones, satellites, books and newspapers. The sextile aspect of 3rd lord Venus on
Ascendant lord Sun would indicate that there would
be tremendous improvement in the efficiency of
Railways. New coaches and engines would be
introduced which are on par with international
standards. Radiation - free mobile sets are likely
to hit the markets.
The fact that the 3rd lord Moon is in own house in
conjunction with the Yogakaraka Saturn in India's
Independence chart coupled with the fact that the
Sub - period of Saturn is now in operation in the
Mahadasha of the Moon reiterates the fact that
media, telecom, transport and communication areas
would undergo a major transformation in the years to
The sextile aspect between Mercury and Mars show
that the volume of transaction in Real-estate is likely
to shoot up.
The 5th house governs theatres, music halls,
educational institutions, speculation, betting, lotteries
and amusement parks. These sectors are greatly
favoured by the 5th lord Jupiter occupying its own
house. However a word of caution; security needs to
be beefed up in malls and cinema theatres, as the 5th
house has Ketu in it, aspected by Mars.
Infectious diseases and mortality rates would go up,
due to the conjunction of 6th lord Saturn with the
malefic Ketu, aspected by Mars. Polio vaccine needs
to be strictly administered. Diseases of gastro -
intestinal tract would surface due to the 3 - planet
conjunction in Saggittarius. There is a steep increase
in the incidence of Diabetes this year. Abortion rates
in India tend to go up.
Foreign affairs, Foreign trade, Foreign direct
investment, diplomatic ties with the western world
are all favoured by the presence of Venus in the 7th,
aspected by the 7th lord Saturn.
In general, accidents and national calamities would
tend to be less this year, through the strong placement
of 8th lord Jupiter and the presence of Mercury in the
8th. Whenever the 8th house is influenced by a benefic,
there is a mood of pro - incumbency in the country.
Indian Mathematicians would gain recognition, at the
Law, justice, courts and Higher institutions of learning
are all governed by the 9th house. The Supreme Court
will assert its supremacy through a series of stunning
judgements, which reiterate the fact that nobody is
above the law. Judicial activism reaches dizzy heights.
Indian judges gain recognition at the International level
for their non - partisan outlook and zeal to uphold the
rule of the law.
Reputation, political situation, Upper Classes are all
denated by the 10th house. As mentioned earlier, India is
headed for the right political climate and right leadership,
due to the presence of Mars in the 10th. The sextile
aspect between Moon and Mars indicates that women
will have a major role in administration. The finances of
the Exchequer would take a beating with the lord of 11,
Mercury, getting debilitated in the 8th.
The lord of 12th Moon in 12, would indicate that the
government would exercise prudence in financial
matters. All efforts would be taken to curb
government's is expenditure. The government would
adopt a tight fiscal policy, in respect of expenditure.
The Solar New year Vikhari will prove to be an
excellent year for the USA. At the beginning of New
Year 2019, the stock markets were be in the doldrums.
But, a Bullish run will start in the US markets, yielding
bumper returns to investors. As Rahu occupies the
5th, there is need for water - tight security in schools,
colleges and places of Higher learning. Cruise
operators need to exercise caution, as lord of 8th,
Mercury, is debilitated in the 2nd. Natural Calamities
would affect USA in the form of typhoons, tornadoes
and hurricanes. The GDP rates will show an
impressive growth. Some kind of liberalisation can
be seen in Trump's immigration policy. Indians in USA
can heave a sigh of relief, as restrictions on Visas get
removed. As regards Middle East, Trump will exercise
a policy of belligerence. USA will do well to win the
Noble Prize in Chemistry.
Chances of India winning the ICC Cricket World Cup
2019 appear bright, as lord of 5, Jupiter, aspects the
11th house from Sagittarius. Further India will do well
in Sports especially Chess, Badminton, Table Tennis
and billiards. Both the Indian Men's team as well as
Women's team will come out with flying colours in
International contests in Hockey.
will get exposed to both manmade as well as
natural calamities. A major natural disaster would hit
the regions in and around Iran and Iraq. Mood of
belligerence will prevail in Teheran towards its
is headed for troubled times. The ruling
dispensation in Islamabad will need to burn their
midnight oil to hold on to power. This will be a testing phase for Imran Khan.
enters into the bhukti of Mercury in the main
period of Rahu. 2019 will be a better year in an
economic sense. United Kingdom will overcome its
post - Brexit blues and enter into a phase of economic
and political consolidation.
The Solar eclipse of July 2
will adversely affect
the ABC nations namely Argentina, Brazil and Chile.
The Partial Lunar eclipse of July 16
affect the European countries. Annual Solar eclipse
of December 26 will affect the political climate in
Saudi Arabia. It will also trigger tidal waves and
hurricanes in Philippines.
When Jupiter resumes Direct motion
on 1 August 2019, there could be a breakout of an
epidemic. The common man will be put to hardship,
due to imposition of additional taxes by the Central
government. Thus a few problems are foreseen in
Saturn turns retrograde on 30 April 2019 and assumes
Direct motion on 18 September 2019. Around this
time, famine like conditions could prevail in India..
Areas adjacent to Ujjain and south east part of
Madhya Pradesh would get affected by Saturn's
transit of Uttarashada star.
According to Varahamihira, price of Gold
on the position of planets with references to two signs
which rule over Gold i.e. Aries and Capricorn (Brihat
Samhita, Chapter 41, Translated by N.C.Iyer).
There are four important rules, which have a bearing
on Gold Prices.
1) Transit of malefics over Upachaya rasis (3,6,10 or
11)from Aries and Capricorn will produce an
abundance of the commodity, i.e. there will be copious
supply.We can infer that Gold prices will come down,
as Supply and Price would have an inverse
2) Jupiter in a Trikona, Kendra, 2, 11 from Aries or
Capricorn will produce abundance of the commodity,
meaning there will be copious supply. We can infer
that Gold prices will come down, as Supply and Price
would have an inverse relationship. Same is the case,
if Mercury is in 2, 5, 8, 10 or 11.
3) Venus in 6 or 7 will produce a Bearish trend in
4)Sun and the sign Leo have a close relationship with
a) When Sun transits a friendly sign, aspected by a malefic,there will be a spurt in Gold prices.
b) When Sun transits an inimical sign, aspected by a
malefic, there will be a fall in Gold prices. Same is the
case, when Sun transits a friendly sign and receives
c) When the sign Leo is aspected by benefics, there will
be rise in Gold prices; Gold prices will fall, if the sign
Leo comes under malefic influences.
Needless to say, it is not an easy job for any Astrologer
to predict with precision, movement of Gold prices.
However, with experience and with an intelligent
application of the above-mentioned rules, one can say
with a fair amount of certainty, the Gold trends.
The accelerated motion of Jupiter into Sagittarius in the
fag end of March 2019 lasting till the third week of April
2019 would result in a spurt in Gold prices, as Jupiter
would be aspecting the sign Leo. However, this
Bullishness would be shortlived, as Jupiter moves back
into Scorpio and also Mars from Taurus aspects Leo.
I also foresee a Bullish run in gold from mid-March 2020,
when Jupiter from Sagittarius would aspect Leo, while
Sun in Pisces (a friendly sign) is aspected by Saturn
from Capricorn. For a major part of 2019, there would
be a subdued trend in Gold prices.
is denoted by the Zodiacal sign Pisces. Though the presence of Saturn in Sagittarius in the 10th, in a
quadrant, is supportive of petroleum prices, Jupiter in
the 9th will lead to surplus production of petroleum,
resulting in a situation where Supply exceeds Demand,
contributing to a fall in prices. Consequently Crude oil
prices tend to get stabilized to about 60 dollars per barrel.
The introduction of hydrogen as a source of fuel for
automobiles and as a source of power for batteries would
further lead to fall in petroleum prices in future. A
breakthrough in hydrogen as a source of energy is on
Gold as a commodity merely has snob value, whereas
Petrol is an item of necessity. The astrological principles
to view Gold and crude oil prices cannot be applied in a
similar fashion, as that would give rise to inaccurate
On 22 March 2020, there would be a rapt conjunction
between Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. This is a very
critical period and needs to be negotiated carefully. For
the world at large, this is a testing time. Astrology is a
probabilistic science, i.e. it does not rule out the results
flowing out of exercise of freewill. What this means is
that the astrological forecasts made, which indicate
negativity can be overcome through properly executed
