Muntha in the 8th House

Ganesha observes that the Lord of the year is Mercury. Therefore, this is the year of communication and progress on the business front. Rahu is in Capricorn in the third house so Indian Government will be communicating a lot with other foreign countries. In addition to this, Sun and Ketu are placed in the 9th house which requires India to be careful of authorities of other countries (The 9th house signifies foreign land and Sun being the Lord of the 10th house of the Varshphala or Solar Return Chart is posited with Ketu in the 9th house).

The ascendant of the Solar Return is the 7th house of the national horoscope. Mars, the Lord of the Solar Return Chart, is strongly disposed in the 11th house. These factors indicate that opposition party is likely to get stronger during this year. The 10th house of the Solar Return's Lord Sun is with Ketu so there is a danger to the ruling party too. Scenario of dismissal or sudden change of power cannot be denied. The combination of a Stellium in the 10th house of Solar Return (SR Chart) with Mercury, the Lord of the year plus Muntha which is in the 8th house, is creating obstacles for the ruling party in maintaining the current position. They have to work really hard in order to maintain it's position.

Retrograde Jupiter is placed with Moon in the 2nd house of SR chart which indicates a decline in the Indian economy at the cost of expansion. Indian government needs to be extra careful while putting its expansion plans into action or else India will incur debts (the 12th Lord with the 8th Lord in the 10th house). Ganesha also feels that there can be a sudden or accidental death of a politician or highly acclaimed national figure, within the next one year. In the area of entertainment and sports, females will be more prominent than males (Venus in the 10th house in Leo in the SR Chart).

India has a scope of winning some awards or shining well internationally, this year, but it may remain deprived of the achievements of the highest order. In other words, out of 'Good, Better and Best' India may stand 'Better' in competitions and contests. During this year, there may be a change in our foreign and financial policies. A lot of work may be done in the industries of entertainment, Banking/Finance, Social Sectors and Communication through Technology.

As Muntha is in the 8th house, there may be sudden stroke of chronic ailments or some incidences which may leave the citizens suffering. There may also be many financial goof ups which may be disclosed in the later part of the next year.
