The forth coming year 2011 can be judged from the Republic Day chart given here:
Currently Rahu maha dasha and Mars antar dasha is going on and it is likely to end by June 2011. Rahu’s presence in the 1st house with Moon will cause chaos and confusion in the minds of the general public. People in general will be selfish and materialistic looking after their own selves showing no or little concern to others in distress. They are likely to take pleasure / be critical of the system rather than take interest and act to eradicate the injustice. Rahu – Mars combination is an indication for violence and much physical activity. There will be a lot more focus on areas where action and physical energy is required.
Rahu is in the constellation and sub ruled by Mercury which means that there will be confusion in the field of communication. The Telecom sector is controlled by Mercury which is currently involved in one of the biggest scams in the history of India. The scam came in to light during this period. Mercury is the karaka (significator) for intelligent research activities in our country.

It’s placement in the 7th house creates a situation where all the partnerships and transactions made unlawfully will come out in the open in the form of scams. It is no wonder that some of the biggest scams have come out in the open during the past year. Due to these scams the trustworthy partner’s have switched sides and the guilty have been brought forward into the open public by the media.

Jupiter Maha Dasha will begin from the 2nd half of the year indicating major changes and new events.

A new strategy and direction to move forward is likely to be taken which will be radically different from the old & existing policies, rules and regulations.
Jupiter happens to occupy the 11th house. Although it is debilitated & weak in the D1 chart, it gains its strength by being placed in Gemini Navamsha. Jupiter is the karaka for growth and expansion. Mercury’s placement in the 10th house indicates radical decisions being taken by the government for the betterment of the country. It’s placement in Gemini Navamsha will also signify tremendous gains in the field of infrastructure, telecommunications, Service sector and Manufacturing.
Jupiter is the karaka for religious and judicial activities. It’s placement in the constellation of Moon and the sub of Mercury will give sattvic influence on the mind of the common man. Corruption is likely to decrease and the positive influence of Jupiter is likely to increase religious activities in the county. Judiciary will gain prominence and get additional powers to execute their decisions quickly. Rules and regulations are likely to change for the better and efficient running of the system.

Technology is likely to receive a boost in the automobile sector in the 1st half of the year. New products are likely to be introduced with viable alternatives. There will be some sort of breakthrough in technology for Robotics / automation. Rahu’s presence in the 1st house also could give scams in pharmaceutical sector / medical field.
