USA in 2015 – What do the stars indicate?
Think of America and the names of some of the greatest of human beings who have walked this earth pop up in the mind: Albert Einstein; Abraham Lincoln; Neil Armstrong; Martin Luther King; George Washington; Elvis Presley; Thomas Edison; Walt Disney; Henry Ford; Muhammad Ali; Mark Twain; Ralph Waldo Emerson; Robert Frost – you name the field, and you will find an American who has graced the highest echelons of it. It is not for nothing that the USA is the numero uno nation of the world. The Spanish-American War and World War I confirmed America's status as a global military power; while the World War II confirmed the country's status as a global superpower. The end of the Cold War and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991 left the United States as the sole superpower of the world, both in military and economic terms.

The USA has the world's largest economy with an estimated GDP in 2013 of $16.8 trillion, which is 23% of the global GDP. The economy is driven by an abundance of natural resources and high worker productivity. From Lee Iacoca to Bill Gates with a Steve Jobs thrown in between, the country has produced the greatest business brains. But, now it is becoming increasingly difficult for even the US to maintain its position at the helm – what with intense competition from emerging markets such as China and India, and a rising threat from global issues like terrorism, rising inflation, economic discrepancies, unemployment, security threats and more.

What does the year 2015 have in store for the United States of America? Will it be able to maintain its position at the top of the world? Ganesha finds out by looking at the Horoscope of the US.

Astrological Analysis
Five most influential historical events in the US have been taken into consideration in making its Formation/ Foundation Chart. Major milestones in the formation of the country, such as the Articles of Association in 1774, the Declaration of Independence in 1776, the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union in 1781 and the US Constitution in 1787 have been examined in minute detail for their significance, legality and timing while drawing this Chart

Looking at USA's Horoscope, Ganesha observes that its has Leo rising Ascendant at 18:02:16 degrees in Purvafalguni constellation Pada-2. The Lord of the Ascendant is in conjunction with US's Natal Jupiter, Venus and Mars in the 11th House. The Moon is posited in the Horoscope's 7th House at 01:42:40 degrees. Mercury and Pluto are natally in a retrograde mode, says Ganesha. Saturn is posited in the 2nd House, whereas Rahu is posited in the 12th House. From these Charts, it can be said that USA is born under the Mahadasha of Mars-Mars-Mercury.

What Next?
At the beginning of the year, the mighty Jupiter will be transiting in retrograde motion in Cancer. Retrograde Jupiter will start moving in direct motion after 09/04/2015. This transit will continue till 13/07/2015 in the 12th House, which is the House of Loss. Due to this transit, the national liability of the USA may decrease and there shall be considerable improvement in the medical, health-care and civil services. Post 14/07/2015, Jupiter will be transiting through the Zodiac Sign Leo. In 2015, it is likely that USA will enter into new contracts under the influence of Jupiter's transit in Leo. According to Ganesha, these contracts will give the country long-term benefits.

Talking about other planets, Ganesha says that Rahu will be transiting through the Finance House in USA's Horoscope, for a better part of 2015. This particular transit will directly affect currency and bank sector. Thus, the country's economic growth may also get indirectly affected. Plus, Saturn in Scorpio in the 4th House in 2015 may slow down agricultural and infrastructural growth and even the progress in the automobile industry. The Horoscope also indicates the possibility of volcano irruption and/or earthquake in 2015, says Ganesha.

In a nutshell, Ganesha says that the year 2015 may bring a mixed bag of fortunes for the USA.
