Will the current Global crisis affect India_

Astro Analysis

The key question the Indian economy is facing now is the backwash effect of the American (or global) financial crisis. To determine the natal destiny of India regarding fiscal and liquidity issues observe the 2nd, 5th, 7th and the 11th house of India’s chart. Also, study the 6th and the 12th house for solvency and losses.

As per the Shadbala system the following is the strengths


The total of the Bhav 2,5,7,11 is 21 dividing this by 4 gives 5.25

The total of the bhav 6,12 is 15 dividing this by 2 gives 7.50

This means that the positive factors are stronger that negative factors in a ratio of 41% : 59%, this is though not a huge difference.

Lets now study the strengths of the planets owning these houses as per the Shadbala system.

Will the current Global crisis affect India_

Budha is the lord of the 2nd and fifth houses, its total strength is 4+4 = 8

Mangal is the lord of the 7th house its strength is 3

Guru is the lord of the 11th house, its strength is 7

The average strength of the lords of the 2nd, 5th, 7th and 11th houses is 18/4 = 4.5

Sukra is the lord of the 6th house, its strength is 5

Mangal is the lord of the 12th house, its strength is 3

The average strength of the lords of the 6th and 12th houses is 8/2 = 4

Here the negative forces are a bit powerful that the positive forces with a ratio of 53% : 47%

Thus the in all positive fiscal strength of India comes almost near to the 50 – 50 range, meaning it all depends on something else.

What does this then depend on? Well planets placed in these houses may play a major role. Lets see then.

Mangal the lord of the 7th house of business establishments as well as the lord of the twelfth house of losses and expenditure and foreign debts is placed in the 2nd house of national wealth, financial stability, balance of trade, national income and all. Mangal as per the Laghu Parashari system will work here more as the Kendra lord and not as the lord of the 12th house of losses, this means that Indian business establishments are and will be strong enough to set off the flight of capital and bring in finances in the system.

Secondly, this mangal aspects the fifth house of stock exchanges and speculative activities, indicating that money will flow directly and primarily into the stock exchanges, reducing the necessity of FII funds.

Guru is in the sixth house of solvency and is the lord of the eighth house of evil in general and is the lord of the eleventh house of negatives in general. Guru here will give malefic results as its MoolTrikona rashi is in the eighth house. There may thus be a case of high insolvency factor and as this Guru as such aspects the second house and Mangal, it may tilt India’s financial strength into negatives.

What Next

The first thing that comes to mind is that transiting Guru is currently more powerful as it is in the eighth house in its own rashi and sign, till 8th December 2008. This implores Ganesha to believe that India will have to face a lot of liquidity and financial crunch till then.

Additionally Ganesha feels that from 30th November 2008 to 15th December 2008 there is a strong possibility of a good bull trend, or at least the markets may not slip further throughout this period, making people feel that the bad times are over, which is and will not be the truth.

When transiting Guru will come in conjcuntion with transiting Rahu and under the aspect of natal Rahu, the basic setting of a long bear trend will emerge, bringing the fiscal strength of the nation and its denizens to its knees. 2009 thus seems to be a period for the nation to tighten its belt and take stringent tight and tough measures.


In short, putting and making it plain, the current global crisis is going to influence India too.

May Lord Ganesha bless us with good fiscal flows.
