The kundli of Independent India points out the fact that it has a Taurus ascendant and Cancer moon sign. Jupiter is the ruling lord of the eighth and eleventh house and placed in the sixth house, whereas the dominant Yog Karak planet Saturn is posited in the third house while being the ruler of the ninth and tenth house. Let’s know how the kundli and current planetary placement adds to the future of India:
Political Scenario Of India In 2020
The position of Saturn will highly influence the political vibes of the country in 2020 and add to the compatibility. From mid-December 2019 till July 2021, Saturn will undergo its Antardasha during Moon’s Mahadasha. The government will face major opposition from as well as conflicts within the ruling party’s members will arise. Hence, the time can be a bit challenging for the ruling party, since some collaborative parties may also walkout from the union.
Saturn is the significator of justice, and has transited in the zodiac sign Capricorn on January 24, which can lead towards major judicial transformation within the country. Hence, the public won’t face any further delays in court or legal matters, and gain accessibility to policies created by the government. All these acts will help in improving the image of the ruling government, however they need to step up and take drastic steps.
2020 & Indian Economy
With Indian Economy currently undergoing several ups and downs, 2020 seems to be a significant year to make progress while rising the global charts. Jupiter has transited in Sagittarius on 5 November 2019 and added to the fiscal struggles, however, Saturn in Capricorn on 24 January 2020 has proved to be a blessing in disguise. Also, Jupiter entering this sign (Capricorn) on 29 March 2020 can result in financial growth at a rapid pace. It is during this time that the country’s budget will be announced, where a rise in the defence budget can be witnessed. Also, plans regarding health issues and public life will also be made. India’s foreign trade will grow, leading to good domestic profit. More transparency in the Indian Tax System will be introduced in order to avoid any case of tax evasion.
India In 2020 & Religion
2020 proves to be a year of religious and cultural progress since Jupiter, the representative of religious activities, is placed in its own sign Sagittarius and will move on from there on 29 March 2020. However, there are chances of communal conflicts arising in the country. In such a case, the government needs to remain alert. During this period, India’s defence activities will rise.
