France - A study on its viability as an investment destination

Introduction: France is the world's 5th economic power, and one of the most open countries in the world. It has been Europe's leading destination for foreign investment and is known for its high quality of living and competitive business advantages. But, why should one choose France as an investment destination? Ganesha studies its viability on astro parameters.

The Birth Details
Date of Birth - October 06, 1958
Time Of Birth - 1830
Place Of Birth - Paris


The Prerequisites
Let's list out what one needs to analyse and think on before deciding on where to invest. The list could be as follows but it's not exhaustive

  • The third house in the country chart of France represents the infrastructure of the country.
  • The fourth house represents natural resources, peace in general and the political stability of the country.
  • The sixth house represents the labour force
  • The seventh house represents foreign affairs
  • The eighth house represents bureaucracy

Planetary Positions
The Moon signifies the fourth house and the seventh house
Mars signifies the third house
Venus signifies the seventh house
Saturn signifies the eighth house

Astro Analysis
Ganesha conducts an astro analysis of the houses listed above, their lords and their significators to determine how investment friendly France is.

The third house cusp is owned by Venus. Venus is debilitated and Mercury is exalted, which forms a Raj Yoga called NeechaBhanga Raj Yoga. Saturn, the significator of the infrastructure, exactly aspects the degrees of the third house, which is thus favourable. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, aspects the third house while Rahu too has its eye on the third house. Ganesha thus finds that astrologically infrastructure seems to be wonderful in France but with only one malefic aspect, that of Rahu, there may be some faults in the same or at times there may be repairs required.

The fourth house is ruled by Gemini and its lord Mercury is exalted. Jupiter, the significator of expansions and largesse as well as quality, aspects the fourth house but as Mercury is deeply combust and is on its path to conjunction with Rahu, there seems to be a natal promise of limited natural resources and hindrances in utilizing the same. This also means that there may be some issues with peace and political stability but not of much severe concern. Moon, the significator of the fourth house, is very strong as per Shadbala and is placed in the fourth house. Hence, at least the internal peace and political stability, the main significations of Moon shall prevail.

Sun, the lord of the sixth house of labour, is in a succeedent house. Mars and Saturn aspects the sixth house. Mars has a stronger aspect to the sixth house by degrees than Saturn. This translates into possibilities of an aggressive work force, highly productive and also labour unrest but this can be allowed when it is productive and aggressive. The work force will be predominantly young.

The seventh house has a stellium. The lord of the seventh house, Mercury is exalted, but combust. This means that the foreign policy of the nation will be influenced by many planets and will be generally flexible. In fact, France will be predominantly associated with foreign policies most of the time. The danger, here is, that France can change its foreign policies as per its need and may not be steady with the same, which may at times hamper trade and industry's interests. Venus, the significator of the seventh house is debilitated, and Moon is powerful but square to the seventh house and Mercury. In this light, the angle of the foreign policy looks a bit tangled.

The eighth house of red tapism and bureaucracy has Jupiter, the planet signifying just and judicious approach. Venus, the lord of the eighth house, is twelfth from its own house, weak and debilitated so it has no powers to control red tapism. It is a strong indication that bureaucracy will be just and fair and may not be much into red tapism, which is favourable for foreign investors.

The decision
France seems to be more investor friendly with regard to the work force and foreign policies. Industries which need better infrastructure and are not much influenced with the need of foreign policies of France, can do fairly well. Industries predominantly focused on natural resources may be at some risk. Otherwise, the nation is quite conducive for continuous progress of its investors.
