Below are the highlights of my prediction, which were accurate:
Last year in EST Jan 2023, in the write-up, "Economic Trends 2023", Astrological perspective for various counts was shared by me.
Now let us analyze what the stars hold for people of major economy in 2024 Gregorian Calendar year
Important points for this Astrological perspective
- In US markets, compared to 2022, Interest rates were increased at a slower level, which gave some relief. Equity markets in 9 months saw a 4.82% growth from 33168 (3 Jan. 2023 closing) to 34768 (1 Sept. 2023), which is considered as consolidation.
- Single Major Casualty event was predicted in US, which is ongoing due to Hawai Wild fire. These fires are still under investigation, with loss of lives, and 350+ missing.
- USA and China had issues. Corporates in Space and Chip sector aligned with US govt. to tackle Chinese counterparts.
- Chinese Stock market is down, more than by 5% till now, from 03 Jan. 2023 closing data. Revolt happened in China in the first 5 months; China's relation with neighbours did not soar much, because of Jupiter's 4th house transit.
- In India, many Corporates and bureaucrats were raided by ED and Income Tax dept. A major corporate group scam is still there, which eroded 40% of its Market Capitalization.
- Indian Banking sector, Textile sector did well, and Gold prices were Bullish. Entertainment industry revived and also received major international awards.
- In Japan, Stock Market Index touched last 20 years' high, after revival in economy.
In 2024, the world economy will not be driven by price action movements in Stocks, but
based on strategies and allocation of Capital by global investors, in developed and emerging
markets. India is already growing at faster pace in World market, and the top two giants
US and China respectively will be at the same position. Saturn and Jupiter are in Fixed
signs this year; Rahu and Ketu in Dual signs show proposals or new commitment by Head
of different States, but not major agreements unless, those are back-dated.
United States of America (USA)
- Because of difference in starting date of Solar year, the Western calendar and financial year of different countries, impact of financial nature looks complex, and the decision of each country also depends much on its geographical location and its political party tenures. Thus Transits, Yogas are given more importance than dasa cycle, because the dasa shows the probable results which can occur, and the transit shows execution time of any yoga, formed under Dasa Cycle.
- Any major treaties signed between countries or trade agreement impacts long-term international trade of the country. So, major favourable and unfavourable Transit can show, if such agreement can be signed in that particular year. In an year, major impacts in economy happens, because of sudden rise in Investments from Global investors, Pandemic/Natural Disaster, passing of constitutional major bill etc.
- Earlier, Physical Gold was major parameter for economy, but now weightage of Interest rates, Foreign Reserves and Stock Market Capitalization are accounted. Therefore different planet's karakatawa and Index calculation methods have to be considered.
- Transit of Karaka planets for Natural Resources, Capital goods are taken in proportion to the GDP. E.g.; In India, Gold is estimated to be around of 1 trillion USD in physical form, which is equivalent to Market Capitalization of Apple and Amazon. So, If Jupiter is transiting in Rashi's like Capricorn, which makes Gold prices higher, it will not majorly impact India's Stock Market. Because, India's stock market and world markets are correlated with US and European markets, where Gold markets do not impact much.

Balance of Dasa in Vimshottari: Mars 2 years 3 months 11 days
Changes in the
Horoscope of USA, from
2023 to 2024 Calendar
Year: Vimshottari dasa of
Rahu and Antardasa of
Saturn will be there in 2024. Rahu and Ketu have
changed its axis from 3/11 to 2/8 house from Lagna.
Jupiter will transit from Aries to Taurus sign, with its
least Bhinnastak Varga.
Jupiter with least Bhinnastak Varga in 2024,
though does not show much promise, it could rather
bring some disappointments in Sports and any
competitive areas, where USA will represent.
The start of Rahu-Saturn period can bring more
challenges internationally to its Currency and some
major Defence deal loss is seen.
Last year, many countries have gone in trade
relations without US dollar, to de-stabilize the US
currency and find it is alternative. There is a major
chance that Saturn's antardasa can bring recession
in US Stock Market and also major challenges to
the Govt. to repay its debt.
Overall, the period of Saturn transiting over the
country's Moon sign and Saturn antardasa shows
less progress for US. People in the country will be
more disappointed. Hope, that the country and its
citizens will sail this year, with less disharmony.
Foundation horoscope of China

Changes in the
Horoscope of China,
moving from 2023 to
2024 Calendar Year: Dasa
and Antardasa lords
(Mercury-Venus) will be
the same; Rahu - Ketu will move from 3/9 axis from Makar Lagna and Jupiter will move to 5th house.
This shows China will be more dominating and
aggressive in its steps.
China allies and its neighbouring countries will
not see any major war, but disputes and tensions
will rise. The country will do good in international
markets in Sports.
Stock market will consolidate, and no Bullish
trend is expected until July 2024. Internet and
Chemical stocks will do well. Rahu's transit, which
comes to its natal position, may bring this result.
Major turn in China's ideology and change in policy
are also possible.
Govt will see major revelations against itself, from
its significant position in their respective fields.
Natural major calamity is also seen this year.
China might get support from Middle-east countries,
as Jupiter is transiting its 5th house.
Foundation horoscope of India
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Saturn 18 years 0 months and 26 days
Changes in the Horoscope
of India, moving from 2023 to
2024 Calendar Year: India is
running under the period of
Moon - Ketu; from July
2023, Moon - Venus will continue till 2025 March.
Saturn is transiting the 10th house from Lagna and
th house from Moon. Jupiter will transit over natal
Rahu, and Rahu-Ketu will transit 5/11 axis from Lagna and 3/9 axis from Moon. This year again,
Corporates will see strict compliance from Income
Tax authorities. Also, some major politician's
revelation can come.
In election, NDA will have strong position, but
single-sided victory is not seen, as per my analysis.
Citizens will spend more, and savings will be less.
Govt will make major decisions in reforming old
traditions, and riots may also take place, along with
In Sports and Entertainment, India will do well,
as Jupiter will transit the 11th house from Moon sign,
and Rahu will transit 11th house from Lagna.
Stock market will see Bullish trend overall, and
infrastructure will see good growth. Apart from these,
there will also be many sectors, where small
companies will do well. Saturn in the 8th house will
obviously help to revive the debt-ridden companies
and PSU sector, for sure.
Saturn in 8th house from Natal Sun, and Sun
being the 4th lord and Karaka of Govt, we can expect
other Parties gaining more seats in 2024. In transit,
when Mars is opposite to Saturn, this situation will
be more likely to happen.
Foundation horoscope of Germany (Reunification)
Balance of Dasa in Vimshottari: Mercury 7 years 6 months 18 days
Changes in the
Horoscope of Germany,
moving from 2023 to 2024
Calendar Year: Germany will
be in Rahu - Mars period in
2024. Jupiter will move in 6th house from Lagna and
rd house from Moon. Though this seems to be bad
transit houses in horoscope, but transit will be in
Taurus sign, where natal Sun, Venus and Retrograde
Mercury are placed. Saturn will be in 3rd house from
Lagna, and Sade-Sati phase will continue. Here
impact can be more, because Moon in Navamsa is
in Aquarius sign, and Saturn has direct aspect to this
sign in the natal horoscope.
Though I have mentioned last year that Germany's
Stock market does not attract global investors, the
Transit of Jupiter over natal Venus, Mercury and Sun
will impress the global investors, as valuations of
Stock Market will be attractive. This also indicates
a Bearish trend in the market.
Transit of Jupiter and Rahu can be favourable
for Germany for foreign investments.
Foundaiton horoscope of Japan
Balance of Dasa in Vimshottari: Mars 0 years 7 months 13 days
The start of Ketu Dasa in 2023 showed a major
change, as Japan's Stock Market touched last 20
years high. Ketu is placed in own nakshatra in the
th house, and transited the
11th house and now 10th
house. Though bought major
shift, actual revival would not
In 2024, Ketu's transit over Saturn and Rahu's transit
over Mercury and Venus show that the people of the
country may see some medical emergency, due to some
infectious diseases or major natural calamity.
Saturn being 8th lord from Moon and 2nd lord from
Lagna shows that whatever the Japanese govt. tries,
any kind of major shift can only happen, when Saturn
crosses Natal Rahu, and move to 3rd house.
Overall, Japan will have almost a similar year.
Metal prices will consolidate across the
world. Also, Saturn's current transit in Kumbha will
make raw iron prices or Steel prices dearer. Competitive
markets may adopt policies to boost its own economy
through anti-dumping duty.
Stock Markets :
Stock Markets will see Bearish trend
or might consolidate. It is a good time for long term
investment in a systematic manner. Indian stock market,
though can see Bullish trend for a short period due to
election, but transit of Rahu and Jupiter 2/12 axis across
the world will bring a shift in market sentiments.
Oil prices will be Bullish, as Saturn and Rahu are
coming closer. Jupiter in 2/12 axis will make oil prices
go higher for the first 6 months and then consolidate.
Gold, which has already seen a run-up in 2023,
will see consolidation and only after June 2024, Gold
prices will be Bullish. Although in today's time, Gold
prices are not directly related to demand and supply, it
is in major proportion to percentage in assets.
In 2024, the world economy will not be driven by
price action movements in Stocks, but based on
strategies and allocation of Capital by global
investors, in developed and emerging markets. India
is already growing at faster pace in World market,
and the top two giants US and China respectively
will be at the same position. Saturn and Jupiter are
in Fixed signs this year; Rahu and Ketu in Dual signs
show proposals or new commitment by Head of
different States, but not major agreements unless
those are back-dated.
