Early Warning

Very Early Warning (published 7/11/2020)

Let me first caution you that this bulletin is not meant to scare you, only to forewarn you of a possibility so that you can prepare yourself in time.

There is a branch of Vedic astrology called Jaimini astrology. The NYSE chart shows a 93-year cycle with a planetary period called Chara Dasha. If you add 93 to 1930, you get 2023. I, therefore, think it is quite possible that we may see 1930 like situation in 2 to 3 years. Interestingly something like that happened 93 years before 1930 also, but it is not as well-known as the 1930 depression. You can go to Wikipedia and search for the panic of 1837. That means there exists a 93-year cycle of depression in the USA. I am not scaring you but trying to make you aware of the possibility of depression in the USA in a few years. The purpose of astrology is to see things in the future and prepare for any disaster. I suggest you study earlier depressions and keep enough cash, some gold and silver coins, sufficient stock of dry grains, etc., if and when you see things are going in that direction. Fortunately, you have more than enough time to prepare.

Here is the chart for the NYSE, drawn for 5/17/1792 and time 10:30 AM. Please note, I use Tropical signs, i.e. zero Ayanamsha.



In Jaimini astrology, not planets but the signs are at the center of consideration. Planets in fixed signs aspect planets in moveable signs and vice versa, except the planets in the adjacent signs. Planets in dual signs aspect planets in the other dual signs. The signs have three kinds of strengths. More the number of planets in a sign, the stronger the sign. If a sign is aspected by its lord or Jupiter or Mercury, it becomes stronger. A sign also gets stronger if its lord is a benefic planet and weaker if its lord is a malefic planet. There are other differences also between the Jaimini system and the Parashari system. If you are interested in learning Jaimini astrology, you may consult a book written for this system. (Ref 1)

However, the most important thing is the total strength of a sign, which you get by combining all of the above factors. Here is the order of the signs based on the total strength for the NYSE chart.

Ta > Li > Sg > Le > Vi = Pi = Aq > Ge = Cn > Ar > Sc > Cp

In other words, Taurus is the strongest and Capricorn is the weakest sign.

The other major difference is the planetary periods. Just as Vimshottri is the most popular planetary period in the Parashari system, Chara dasha is the most popular sign-period in Jaimini. The software Kala calculates the duration of these periods based on the distance between the sign and its lord. Here is the number of years allotted to the signs starting from ascendant Leo to the twelfth house sign Cancer in the direct order. The years are 9,8,7,10,10,3,2,7,5,12,11,9 respectively. The total makes a 93 years cycle. The cycle then repeats. The details of the three cycles are given in this table, along with some of the sub-periods of interest.


The first depression in the USA occurred around 1837, the second one from 1930 onwards. Chara dasha at the time of the first panic was Cp/Sc, and the second panic was also Cp/Sc. The reason is simple. Both the signs are the weakest signs. Based on this, I can safely extrapolate that a similarly difficult period can occur between Nov 2022 and Feb 2023. It is essential to note the dates of occurrences are not very exact. There could always be a possibility of plus or minus a few months.

It is also important to note that this technique predicts not only depressions but also bull markets, bear markets, and crashes within a window of a few months or years. The bull market of the 1920s (Aug 1921-Aug 1929) occurred in the major period of a strong sign Sg. Another bull market ( June 1949-April 1956) occurred in the major period of Ta, the strongest sign. The bull market of Aug 1982-Aug 1987 occurred in the major period of Le. The bull market of the 1990s occurred when the major period of Vi was running. The last bull market of 2009-2019 was during the sign-period of Sg again.

The bear market of 1973-1974 was during Cn/Cp, and of 2002 during Sc/Sc. The crash of 1987 was during Vi/Vi, a sign occupied by Mars. Mars is known for quick and fast action. The big recession of 2008 was during Sc/Ar, both signs ruled by Mars. The dates of bull, bear markets, and panics are not given precisely by this system due to the effects of transiting planets and some other factors, but they are close enough to make a reasonable guess. I, therefore, think that a difficult situation in the financial markets of the USA is possible around 2022 and 2023.
