New Beginnings, Vedic Lunar Year (2023-24)
mundane predictions for India
By Sachin Malhotra

The classical text 'Varsha Prabodha', published by Venkateshwara Press Mumbai, has given many important principles for forecasting trends for the 'Hindu Nav Varsha' (Hindu New Year), on the basis of planetary Cabinet. Various portfolios are allocated to the 7 planets, as per the timings of Sun's entry into certain asterisms and in various signs.

The day-lord of Pisces New Moon (Chaitra Shukla Pratipada) is the most important, which is known as the King (Raja) of Hindu New year. In Varahamihira's Brihat Samhita, the results of various planets becoming the King of Hindu New Year has been given in chapter number 19, named 'Graha Varsha Phala Adhyay'.

The Pisces New Moon is on 21st of March 2023, at 22 hours and 53 minutes (Indian Standard Time) at Delhi, on Tuesday; at the time of Sunrise, the Tithi is 'Krishna Amavasya'. The 'Pratipada' will come at the Sunrise time of next day i.e. on 22nd of March, on 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 will take places in cities. People would perform lots of charities, and health of masses would improve. 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 for India: 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 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 will promote long term investments in Stock markets.

All these four planets are giving aspect to the 11th house of gains. Mars, the lagna and 6th lord in the 8th house also aspects the 11th, through 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.

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 indicates 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 competitive examinations, for getting jobs in Government and semi-government sectors. The unemployment rate in India was 6.5% as on September 2022, which is likely to reduce a little by the end of financial year 2023-24. In the Navamsa of Hindu New Year chart, Leo sign is rising with Sun and Moon in the lagna; 11th lord Mercury is in the 3rd house, which is auspicious for job-market in the country. But in the Rasi chart, Saturn from the 4th house aspects the 10th house, which shows that Central Government will not be able to fulfill its 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 enters into Arudra Nakshtra on 22nd of June 2023 at 17 hours 53 minutes. Sun enters Arudra 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 signifies farmers. In Navamsa, we have Mars in the 4th house. So, the presence of hard malefic planets in the 4th house of Rasi and Navamsa of Hindu New Year chart indicates 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 the day-lord of Sun's entry into Cancer, becomes the lord of farm-production i.e. Sasyesha. When Moon becomes the lord of farm-production, then during that year, cows give plenty of milk and there is good rainfall, and farm-products will be higher. But since the 4th house in the Hindu New Year chart has malefic disposition, 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.

Decent Food Grains Productions foreseen: The day-lord of Sun's entry into Sagittarius is called 'Dhanyesha', which is seen for food grains production during the Winter season. In the year 2023, Sun will enter into Sagittarius on 16th of December on Saturday; so Saturn becomes 'Dhanyesha' for Hindu New Year. Saturn is in the 4th house in its own sign Aquarius, and is in the Navamsa of Jupiter, which is auspicious. So, the production of food grains will be decent during financial year 2023-24. But as per Varsha Prabodha, Saturn becoming 'Dhanyesha' (food grains minister) is not much helpful for farmers.

Sugarcane farmers will be benefitted: The "Rasesha" (minister for Sugar trade) is Mercury this year, as Sun enters into Libra sign on 18th of October 2023 on Wednesday, ruled by Mercury, which is auspicious for Sugarcane farmers.

Controversies in Mines and Mineral sector foreseen: The planetary portfolio of 'Neerasesha' (lord of mines and minerals) goes to Moon, as Sun enters into Makar Rasi (Capricorn sign) on 15th of January 2024, on the day of Monday ruled by Moon. The production of Pearls will increase, when Moon becomes the 'Neerasesha', as per Varsha Prabodha. But since lagna and 6th lord Mars is in the 8th house, some controversy and scandal in the Mining sector can't be ruled out, as per the Hindu New Year horoscope 2023-24.

Production of Fruits and Vegetables will be record breaking The 'Phalesh' (the horticulture and vegetables lord) is the day-lord of Sun's entry into Pisces sign, which this year becomes Jupiter. Sun enters into Pisces in the afternoon of 14 March 2024 on Thursday. Jupiter is strongly giving aspect to the lagna of Hindu New Year, which clearly shows that government can introduce new policies for the farmers, engaged in the production of fruits and vegetables, which will bring record productions of these items.

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. Unemployment Rate will reduce. Good Rainfall is foreseen. Hindu New Year chart indicates some difficulty for country's farmers. But, production of Fruits and Vegetables will be record-breaking. Border Tensions will continue.

Economic Growth foreseen: The 'Dhanesha' (the Minister for Finance) is the day-lord of Sun's entry into Virgo, which will happen on 17 September 2023 at 13 hours and 31 minutes on Sunday. Thus, Sun becomes the lord of finances, which is strong in own Navamsa, at the time of Hindu New Year, giving indications for Indian economy becoming strong, because of some new economic policy by ruling Central Government.

Border Tensions will continue: In the year 2020-21, India-China border Skirmishes has brought great tensions between these two giants of Asia. More than 50 thousands of combating forces from both sides has been stationed with advance weapons, since the 'Galwan valley clash' in May 2020. The 'Durgesha' (the Defence Minister) will be Jupiter, as the Sun enters into Leo on Thursday this year. Jupiter becoming the lord of 'defence' will help in breaking the ice between India-China top leadership, on the matter of on going border tensions. But since 6th lord Mars aspects the 3rd house from its 8th aspect, the number of armies and military installations stationed alongside the border may not reduce much, despite peace-talks between the two countries.

Dangerous Ketu Antardasa for India: In the Foundation horoscope of India, Moon- Ketu period 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 antardasa of Ketu poses a major danger for the country. In Navamsa, Ketu goes into the 6th house of strife and terrorist activities.

The period from 21 March 2023 to 11 July 2023 can bring major terrorist activities, border tensions and crime against women. Now see the chart of Hindu New Year 2023-24, where 7th lord is Venus going into the 6th house, along with Rahu in the sign of Mars and getting the aspect of Saturn, which is functional malefic for this chart. A major crime against women and sex scandal will shock the entire nation, within a 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 connections, as 12th and 7th lord Venus is in the 6th house of disputes, along with Rahu. In Navamsa 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. Laws 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 Dasa and Venus Bhukti in the Foundation horoscope of India, from 11 July 2023 to 11 March 2025, matters related to 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.
