As per IMF report data of Aug 2022, top 5 economies of world (as per ranking)
Here is my attempt to predict economic trends for Calendar Year 2023, through Jyotish perspective. Today all major economies are depended on each other. Most countries depend on China for medicine APIs and manufacturing, because of cheap labour. Although, since COVID, there is a partial shift, where India became the biggest beneficiary. India is hub for IT outsourcing, and is now attracting global giants for manufacturing, to boost its semi-skilled employment. Japan's relentless quality-production keeps it as favourite, and USA is known for its Defence manufacturing and Oil supply.
||Avg. GDP Growth Rate for last 6 years
|USA ||23 ||1.75% ||Dhanishta |
|CHINA ||14 ||6.25%||Shravan |
|JAPAN ||5.3 ||0.01% ||Mrigasira |
|GERMANY ||3.85||1.01% ||Revathi |
|INDIA ||3.5 ||5.30%||Pushya |
Apart from these above countries, Russia, France and Middle-east countries can't be ignored, where Oil production and supply are mainly controlled.
Important points for this Astrological perspective
Because of difference in starting date of Solar Year, Western Calendar and Financial Year of different countries, impact of financial nature doesn't show immediately; decision of each country also depends much on its geographical location, political party tenure mainly. Thus, Transits, Yogas are given more importance than Dasa cycle; dasa shows probable results which can occur, and the transit shows execution-time of that (any) yoga formed under Dasa Cycle.
Any major treaties signed between countries or trade agreement impacts the 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 one year perspective, major impacts in economy happens, because of sudden rise in Investments from Global investors, Pandemic/Natural Disaster, Major bill passed.
Earlier, physical Gold was major parameter for economy, but now weightage of interest rates, foreign Reserves and Stock Market Capitalization are more. Therefor different planets' significations and Index calculation methods have to be taken correctly.
Transit of Karaka planets for natural resources, capital goods are taken in proportion to the GDP. Example: In India, Gold is estimated to be around 1 trillion USD in physical form, which is equivalent to Market Capitalization of Apple and Amazon. So, if Jupiter is transiting in Rasis like Capricorn, which makes Gold prices higher, it will not mainly impact India's Stock market. Because India's Stock market and world markets are correlated with US and European markets, where Gold markets don't impact much.
United States of America (USA)
Changes in Horoscope of USA, from 2022 to 2023 Calendar year: Vimshottari dasa of Rahu and Antardasa, Jupiter, from June 2021 till Nov 2023 will remain the same, of course, sub period will change. Saturn will move from 6th house to 7th house from Lagna, and the Second phase of Sade-Sati will begin, where Saturn will be transiting over Moon's Rasi. Jupiter will move from 8th house to 9th house from lagna; from Moon, it will be 2nd to 3rd house. Rahu and Ketu will remain in same Rasi till November 2023. Other transits are those of fast-moving planets.
Looking at various countries' horoscopes and sectors, in 2023, it is foreseen that major economies
will have changes in their domestic policies. USA will have to make more Capital expenditure,
and listen to its allies. China may face revolt from citizen. India will also see more revival and
aggressive approach, propagating its religious ideology. Countries, in general will not see
sudden shift in technology or revival in economy.

Rahu is in the 12th house in the natal horoscope,
and Jupiter in the 11th from Lagna. Whereas from
natal Moon, Rahu is in the 6th and Jupiter in the 5th
house. Therefore in 2023, this will not create much
economic issues, because of benefic positions. But
natal Rahu being in 12th and 6th from Lagna and
natal Moon respectively will start increasing interest-rate for its citizens. Rahu Dasa started in 2018, and
the economic growth is fuelled by monetary easing,
by central banks. Being in the 12th and 6th house of
Borrowing and Losses (from lagna and Moon
respectively), Rahu can create issues in long term.
In 2023, there can be some civil riots or damage
to citizens at mass scale. This is because 4th house
will be doubly impacted by Saturn and Rahu this
year. Rahu in natal horoscope have deep impact on
Scorpio sign (in Navamsa and Drekkana),
Saturn from the 2nd house aspects Scorpio sign. In transit, it will again give 10th aspect from Aquarius
sign. Transit conjunction or combination of Mars and
Ketu will increase such probability. These points are
taken from last few major events in USA from 1920s
based on my observations on 7+ events, where more
than 100+ deaths happened in each case.
Corporates will make big move in USA, and will
be more co-operative with Government. Govt's
financial policy can assure relief to its citizen in
Interest-rates, and financial aid will increase. Stock
Markets will consolidate most of the time, and
Banking, FMCG sectors will do well. Auto sector
can see major challenges in international markets.
USA and China can have major disagreements with
respect to trade relations.

Changes in Horoscope of
China, moving from 2022 to
2023 Calendar Year: China
will enter Mercury- Venus's
period, whereas Saturn, Rahu and Jupiter will influence
its 4th house. This shows internal revolt or aggression
will rise among Government and its people. Changes
in Labour Laws, possible change in govt decision or
leadership may occur.
China's economy, which are mainly controlled by
its Government only, will get more boost, due to Venus,
which is the lord of 5th and 10th house and Yogakarak,
is well placed in Taurus Navamsa as well. China will
benefit more from its foreign investment.
China's allies and neighbouring countries like India,
Pakistan will not create much trouble. With India, a
major agreement can happen, because of Jupiter's
influence on the 4th house.
Stock market and Metal sector will see decline,
as transit Rahu will pass over the natal 4th house, which
is aspected by transit Saturn. China mainly depends
on contract manufacturing, and cheap labour is key
to it. Saturn transiting 2nd house from Lagna would
cause change in Labour Laws or disagreement of
Corporates and employees.
As per my experience of Mercury and Saturn
positions here, China will be verbally more aggressive.
More expenditure on Defence sector is likely, because
Mars, the Karaka of Defence, Ruler of 4th House
and 11th house comes under Mercury and Jupiter's
influence in 2023.

Changes in Horoscope of
India, moving from 2022 to
2023 Calendar Year: India is
running under Vimsottari
period of Moon - Ketu; from
July 2023, Moon - Venus period will start. Saturn
is transiting the 10th house from Lagna and 8th house
from Moon. Transit Jupiter and Rahu will make
association in the 11th and 9th house from Lagna
and Moon respectively.
Though Saturn is Yogakarak for India, and
transiting the 10th house from lagna, but 8th house
from Moon, will make the effect neutral. Corporates
will see strict compliance from Income tax authorities.
Corporate governance will be an issue, and some
big scam can be revealed.
Metal, Manufacturing and Contract
manufacturing sectors will see good results. People
will buy more vehicles and Gadgets. For Indians,
Vehicle and Gadgets still come under privilege/luxury
Spiritual and Old traditional knowledge will get
more attraction in 2023, because Saturn and Jupiter
will influence the 4th house. People will be more
philosophical, and disturbance or religious conflict
will be less, compared to 2022. Saturn and Jupiter
influence can also bring big Religious Organizations
under financial accountability.
A year before Lok Shabha election will make
the Government push for expenditure, but the effect
of Saturn shows fund or liquidity will cause constraint
and divestment of public sector companies is seen
Stock market will see consolidation, Gold buying
will be more, Entertainment, Textile industry will see
good progress. Education will also see more
investments/reforms from Govt and Private players.
Banking sector will also see revival.
Sun is the 4th lord sitting in the 3rd house. In
2023, transit Saturn will be again 8th from natal Sun,
aspecting Sun's Rasi (Leo). Transit Jupiter and Rahu
will be aspecting natal Sun and Leo on and off. It
clearly indicates that Opposition parties will oppose
some big Corporates and Government. policies.
Ruling party leaders may come under scanner,
specially related to financial sector.
Foundation horoscope of Germany (Reunification)
Balance of Dasa in Vimshottari: Mercury 7 years 6 months 18 days
Changes in Horoscope of
Germany, moving from 2022
to 2023 Calendar Year:
Germany will be in Rahu -
Moon period in 2023. Jupiter
will move in 5th house from Lagna, and 2nd house
from natal Moon. Though these seem to be good
transit houses in horoscope, but transit will be in Aries
sign, where Mars and Rahu are placed. Saturn will
move to 3rd house from Lagna, but Sade-Sati phase
will also begin. Here impact can be more, because
Moon is in Aquarius Navamsa and natal Saturn have
direct aspect to this sign in natal horoscope.
Germany is dependent on China in trade relations.
After Covid, it is trying to reduce dependency, but
still agreements are not signed with other countries,
which are significant to make difference in any sector,
where trade with China is concerned. In 2023,
Jupiter, being Lagna Lord, transit over 12th lord and
th lord Mars can ensure long-term agreement with
another country. Also deals in Defence and
automobile sector, specially related to Aviation and
Defence sector, can be finalized.
Stock Market and Metals, other than Steel, is
not much important for global investors. Domestic
economy last year picked up, due to international
demand, and prices of steel also went high. Transit
Saturn moving to 3rd bhava will stabilize prices for
Steel manufacturers. Growth of Germany will not
be affected, either in positive or negative way, until
dependence on China is cut-off. 2023 brings a hope
for change in policies.
Taxes in Germany are also, more compared to
other European or developed Nations. In 2023,
Jupiter's transit in 5th house may bring good Taxation
policies or aggressive steps in Taxation for its citizens.

Changes in Horoscope of
Japan, moving from 2022
to 2023 Calendar Year: Japan
will be entering Ketu Dasa in
Jan. 2023, from 17 years long
Mercury dasa. In 17 years of Mercury Dasa economy
didn't surge or grew as expected. Stock Markets
gave no return in this period. Debilitated Mercury and
aspect of Saturn had been one major reason for this.
Transit Jupiter will move to 5th house on its natal
position and over natal Sun. Saturn will transit over
rd house and natal Rahu. From Moon also, transit of
planets shows favourable results.
In 2023, from Lagna and Moon Rasi, we can
see that 3rd, 9th, 11th and 5th houses will be most
active, based on transit of Jupiter, Saturn and Rahu.
Also, Ketu dasa, which in 3/9 position of Lagna and
Moon will start. 2023 can mark a new beginning for
Japan's economy. Growth in GDP is expected to
cross last 3 years' average, and self-consumption,
which is more than 50% of Japan's GDP, will also
Saturn being 8th lord also, in transit and
antardasa, making connection to Dasa lord and 4th
lord Mercury, manifested an unfortunate event of
PM's death in 2022. In 2023, it's transit over Rahu
shows more disagreements in territory disputes or
