Saturn is now in Capricorn since 24 January 2020 and it will be there till April 2022 . The next transit of Saturn would also be in its own sign Aquarius till March 2025 . Therefore effectively Saturn would be quite powerful for next 5 years and it would shape new kind of politics and economy all over world.
How It Affects Politics & Economy ?
Saturn is natural planet for Karma , job , profession and Capricorn is the sign for work , recognition, name and fame . This sign is considered Human Resource (HR) Sign. So , expect big changes in hiring policies all over world . The permanent , secure kind of government or private sector jobs may be reduced further while there would be more short term , contractual hiring which will increase employment though high paying jobs will be few .
Saturn represents mass people , the powerless toiling billions and they get empowered when Saturn reaches Capricorn but the results are visible when it reaches Aquarius. That shows possibility of mass agitations against authority through out its stay in Capricorn .
Last time Saturn entered Capricorn on 20 March 1990 as shown below in image ( Saturn at 0 Cp 00 )
It was there till March 1993 . And what happened in India during March 1990 to March 1993 :
- On 7 August 1990, the National Front government led by PM V P Singh declared that it would provide 27 per cent reservations to “socially and educationally backward classes” for jobs in central services and public undertaking. That caused mass pro and anti reservation stirs for next 3 years .
- As a reaction to Mandal Politics , Kamandal politics responded. In September 1990 , Sh L.K. Advani starts Rath Yatra to build Ram Temple and the firing on Karsevaks in Ayodhya in October 1990 led to fall of VP Singh Government on 15th November 1990 when BJP withdrew support . Chandrashekhar Government also fell in 4 months and fresh elections happened in May 1991 , in which Rajiv Gandhi was killed by a suicide bomber . PV Narsimha Rao emerged as dark horse to become PM for next 5 years in a lame duck kind of government .
- Ayodhya dispute and OBC reservation were the main agitations during that Saturn in Capricorn period .
- On 6th December 1992 , disputed structure in Ayodhya was demolished by angry Karsevaks and there were Hindu-Muslim riots for next 4 months in Mumbai and other cities .
- Supreme Court validated new OBC reservation in 1993 and it became part of government policy , dividing Indian bureaucracy and fall of effective bureaucracy after that .
- New leadership emerged in politics and Congress Party lost its hold over Indian politics.
- Economy suffered because of political turbulence . The Reserve Bank of India had to airlift 47 tons of gold to the Bank of England and 20 tons of gold to the Union Bank of Switzerland to raise $600 million in 1991. This led to so called opening of economy by Narsimha Rao government and licensing system was done away .
- Worldwide , old way of bilateral trade under GATT was replaced by WTO and concept of Globalization and opening of Economy was proposed and signed by most countries . Chinese economy started growing rapidly .
- Gulf War started in this period in 1991 between US and Iraq . Even though President Bush ( senior) won the war , his Republican party lost in 1992 elections to Democrat Bill Clinton.
And if you want to go even earlier , Saturn was in Capricorn from Feb 1961 to January 1964 . It led to humiliating defeat of India in October 1962 by Chinese , leading to fall of PM Nehru and subsequently divisions in strong Congress party .
So, this time also, we can expect major changes in Indian and world politics in coming 5 years with mass agitations on religious and sectarian grounds , decline of economy is natural , global trades to follow new policy of localization . New leadership would emerge at central level politics which may not be as aggressive as it is now . American Presidential election this year can see reversal to democrats .
