The United States of
America is a capitalist mixed economy, which is blessed by abundant
natural resources, a well-developed infrastructure, and high
productivity. The economy of the United States has been the world's
largest economy since the early 1870s; its gross domestic products
(GDP) was estimated as $13.8 trillion in 2007. It is a mixed economy
and private firms make the majority of microeconomic decisions, while
being regulated by the government. Recently, the Federal Reserve
slashed U.S. interest rates by a hefty three-quarters of a percentage
point, to a three-year low of 2.25 percent. Here, Ganesha gives an
astrological analysis on the giant economy of the world.
Here five major
historical events are considered in creating USA's birth chart.
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 all been examined in minute details for
their significance, legality and timing. Many horoscopes have been
prepared and studied by lots of Astrologers.
Here Ganesha tries to
focus on USA economy by the following details.
Ganesha observes the Leo
rising Ascendant with 18:02:16 Purvafalgun constellation Pada-2. Lord
of Ascendant is in conjunction with natal Jupiter, Venus and Mars in
eleventh house. Moon is posited in seventh house with 01:42:40
degrees. Mercury and Pluto are in retrograde mode, says Ganesha.
Saturn is deposited in second house whereas Rahu is posited in
twelfth house. USA is born under the Mahadasa of Mars-Mars-Mercury.
U.S. sub prime
Ganesha analyses that
U.S. mortgage market has climbed up in few months as the housing
industry's prices fell. Mars has been transiting through Gemini
since November 17, 2007. The disaster has signaled wider concerns.
The fallout may spread to lenders and damage the economical state of
affairs, feels Ganehsa. On the other hand, Ganehsa foresees that
May-June 2008 is very crucial for U.S. sub prime mortgage market.
Mars will be transiting through natal Rahu and Mercury. Mercury is
the lord of second and eleventh house, says Ganesha. So, this transit
may cause more difficulty in this particular sector.
US Financial Market
Heavy volatility is
foreseen in U.S. financial markets due to the transit of Jupiter from
fifth house. Jupiter is the significator of Great Bear and it is the
lord of eighth house. Still NASDAQ, NYSE and Dow Jones have to
witness lots of fluctuations in forthcoming months due to the
conjunction of transiting Saturn and Ketu in Leo in first house.
After the first week of May, 2008 U.S. financial markets may slowly
come out of volatility, feels Ganesha.

economical scenario and fear of Depression
Fed Bank has tried to
support the entire U.S. economy by providing $200 million. Over and
above Fed rates have been decreased by Fed Bank. Besides, dollar has
been constantly decreasing in World Currency Exchanges. Ganesha finds
the reason of this recession that transiting Jupiter has caused
damage in the structure of the entire economy. Jupiter is the lord of
eighth house in natal chart. It will be transiting through its sixth
house from natal Ketu after December 2008. But Ganehsa observes that
the Jupiter's transit from Capricorn may not be strong enough to
sustain its economy. Ganesha says "wait and watch" till January
05, 2009. Transit of Jupiter from Capricorn may bring fruitful
results for U.S. economy, feels Ganesha.
