Chinese are very happy about Rat year. They are telling this new rat year will brings wealth & success to China. I have no idea about their astrology.
Now i am going to share something on the basis of our Vedic Astrology.
China got liberation and it was proclaimed as Republic of China in 1–10–1949.
If we see the position of planets during that period Saturn in Leo, mars in Cancer, Sun Mercury Kethu are in Virgo, Venus in Libra, Guru in Sagittarius, Moon in Capricorn, Rahu in Pisces.
Venus Mercury Guru are in their own house. Mars got Neecha banga Raj yoga, Moon is seeing its own house from Capricorn. So Five planets are in strong position.
So their income is very strong, banking system is in very safe position.
Next their education system is very flexible. Most of their students will be very sharp. But they have always different opinions with Chinese government.
China has Guru dhasa from 1984 to 2000 . This was their golden period. Most of their plans & economic policies were designed during this time. It leads them to success.
Then Sani dhasa from 2000 to 2019. They worked hard and earned wealth. Slow and steady development during this period. Population was controlled in this particular period.
Now Mercury dhasa starts from 2019 up to 2036. This period is not good for trade, IT sector, communication with neighbour countries. They will have different opinions and get separation with their partners. Students will agitate against Ruling party. Rulers will takes severe action against them.
What about 2020 ???
If we look back 60 years ago Saturn & Guru were in Sagittarius in 1960 then both transited to Capricorn in 1961. This was worst period of their history. The great Chinese famine occurred during this time. More than 36 million people were killed.
Now history will be repeated coz Guru Sani are in Sagittarius in 2019 & will be Capricorn in 2020. China is going to be affected by lot of issues & economic distraction.
Real estate will fall down badly . Chinese government will faces internal issues. There are chances for civil wars. Their business partners will go against of them. I think Pakistani government will damage or make some losses to Chinese government. Share markets will fall down.
After USA Indian government will control their influence and start trade war against them. Chinese economy will be damaged coz of Indian trade war. China will have fear of Indian army & missile power. Even they engage in border issues they will withdraw their army after Indian army’s counter attack.
Hong hong issues will be headache for Chinese government. It will causes unexpected expenses & property damages.
So this Rat year will not good as they expect
