Astrological Predictions

The world will continue to reel under egoistic power struggle,

between Democratic, Autocratic and Religious power centers.

Luckily War-Lord Mars is not involved with any planets, so there will be no war.

Mercury is in enemy house, so not much academic or new research will be made.

Effect on India

The Lagna or Ascendant of India Republic Chart is Pisces, whose lord Guru is in 10th, retrograde,

with arch enemy Ketu. India is powerful, but the strength is down, as Guru is in a bad alignment with Sun, and with Ketu.

When Guru becomes direct in motion and Sun moving to Leo (Simha) on September 15th, the strength will be regained.

Effect on Financial Markets

Democratic countries will have better stability in financial markets.

Religious based countries will continue to suffer.

Autocratic countries will come under pressure from Democratic ruled ones for finance.

Sun being good in Karkataka, will bring good news as relief for the general public.

As Sun is, after all, Father of Saturn (Sun enemy), and Moon is with Saturn, the vaccine for the corona virus is in sight.

Political Upheavals

Saturn and Jupiter are not in good alignment, so Democratic forces will put pressure on Religious based Countries.

But Religious countries will survive on its own strength.

Calamities

Cyclones in the Southern hemisphere is likely to hit countries.
