2016 has passed quite fast. Feelings are mixed. Many had several expectations from the government and on the other hand many felt that their expectations were met in toto. Now let us see what is in store for 2017. We will also witness the yearly budget in the month of February 2017. Many of the events those have occurred from December 21, 2016 till today are very clearly explained by way of aspects in the following analysis. The analysis will be done by Ingress chart when Sun entered the sign Capricorn. In mundane astrology the Sun’s ingresses to four cardinal signs has a lot of importance. These are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. When in Aries ingress a fixed sign rises, then the effect of that Ingress chart is for full year. When a common sign rises then the effect is there for 6 months. When a cardinal sign rises the effect is for 3 months. The Aries ingress for 2016 was with Gemini rising and hence the effect of the Aries ingress chart was there only for 6 months. Now we will look at Capricorn ingress chart. The Sun entered Capricorn on December 21, 2016 at 4.06 PM at Delhi. This chart will be taken as base for prediction for next quarter up to Aries ingress i.e: up to 20/21st March, 2017. I have not used the subsidiary new moon charts as the article will be too lengthy. The Capricorn Ingress chart is given below;


The ingress falls in the 7th house. The 7th house denotes foreign affairs, relationship with them, political allies to government, etc. This theme of foreign affairs and our relationship with our allies will be in the forefront. The following are the main aspects.

Aspects to the Sun in the 7th house lord of 4th house

1. Sun is conjunct (adverse aspect) Saturn (lord of 8 and 9).

The 7th house signifies Foreign affairs; relations with other countries, whether friendly or hostile, political or commercial, war, etc.

The 4th house signifies Land, the owners of it and the workers on it. The crops and produce of the land. Mines, buildings. The opposition in Parliament. A malefic in this house may afflict the government through its opposition to the 10th House.

The 8th house signifies Public mortality, death-rate, kinds of people who die. Death duties, financial relations with foreign countries, mass deaths, obstacles of every nature, all kinds of taxes, etc.

The 9th house signifies Shipping, sea traffic, the aeroplane industry and long distance traffic generally, whether connected with passengers or commerce. Long distance or international communications. Religion, the churches, preachers. Law courts. Universities, professors, philosophical and scientific institutions and publications.

Saturn is lord of 8th an adverse house. Sun and Saturn are by nature hostile to each other. Since, Sun is conjunct with Saturn as stated above. Due to this the relations with our foreign allies and/or agreements between our allies will affect us negatively. The move by the government in appointment of people at high places in Judiciary (9th house) will be criticised.

Since Rahu is in the 4th house (opposition parties) and it is conjunct Saturn, the parliament sessions will not function properly.

2. Sun is sextile (benefic) to Mars in 10th house.

The 10th house signifies thepresident, the government, people in authority. Eminent and famous persons. Power and status of government.

Since, Sun is in sextile (an benefic aspect) there will be some opportunity for the government to sign some agreements related to nuclear, defence, etc with our foreign allies. Mars signifies nuclear, defence, army, military, navy, etc.

Aspects to Mercury in the 8th house, lord of Asc and 5th house.
(In the case of Mercury above all the above aspects are of adverse nature.)

The Asc signifies the country and its inhabitants as a whole; its general condition of prosperity and health or the reverse.

The 5th house signifies theatres, public houses, all places of amusement, entertainment and pleasure, children, Sports, speculation, gambling. Stock exchanges, etc.

The 6th house signifies Public health or sickness. Epidemics. The health service. The national services: army, navy and Civil Service as servants of the country. Workers and employees generally. Trade unions.

Since the lord of Asc and 5th house is in the adverse 8th house, the people will be subjected to additional taxes (8th house). There will be deaths due to terror strikes, bomb blasts, riots.

Appointments to high offices of army, military, navy will face criticism. There will be scams in the sports and entertainment industry.
