The Falling Rupee-A Vedic Astrology Evaluation of Karmic Reasons

The Indian Rupee is depreciating in value consistently against the US Dollar. The weakness of the Indian currency and its devaluation has worried everyone.

We can study some basic facts through Vedic Astrology and see the Kārmic designs that have led to this situation. These are simple but emerge as simple only when they are stated and recognised as such.

Independent India has its own horoscope but we are not going into that for the present. We might note however that India has Vṛṣabha/ Vrishabha/ Taurus rising in the Lagna/ Ascendant in the  natal chart. 

The transit chart can be quite revealing especially the transit of the slow moving or the outer planets in the zodiac. The current transit is depicted below-

The rupee or indeed the currency of any nation is governed by the planet Mercury/ Budha which is also the planet signifying commerce, trade and business intercourse. The deity of Budha is the God of Wealth Himself, Kubera.

However, Mercury is a planet and a playful one at that and therefore in life we know that business determinants do not have constant values but keep changing based on various dynamics. We expect the currency to fluctuate based on complex interplays of market and other economic forces.
Mercury being a planet moves from house to house/ Bhāva (Bhava) to Bhāva (Bhava) but there must be more fixed factors from which to study business, enterprise, currency, trade, commerce and investment.
The Kāma Tṛkoṇa/ Kama Trikona relates not only to desire but more directly to desire for love and luxury, both these partaking of the Rajas Guṇa/  Guna. Out of these Budha is the planet we are interested in as the significator but the Kāma Tṛkoṇa/ Kama Trikona comprises the 3rd, 7th and 11th Houses as reckoned from the Udaya Lagna/ sign rising in the Ascendant.
In the natural zodiac this corresponds to the sign Gemini/ Mithuna in the 3rd, Libra/ Tulā Rāśi/ Tula Rashi in the 7th and Aquarius/ Kumbha Rāśi/ Rashi in the 11th House from the Lagna.
We know that the size of the current account deficit has been stated to be one of the foremost reasons for the plummeting state of the Indian Rupee. Deficits in general are governed by the planet Saturn which is exalted but was retrograde in the recent past giving results of debility. It was and is joined Rāhu/ Rahu the North Node which rules foreign lands and foreign currencies in this context and both planets are placed in the sign of business, markets, companies-Libra/ Tulā/ Tula.   
Rāhu/ Rahu and Śani are also lords of Aquarius the 11th House of a zodiac and can make for huge trials and blockages before any desire is fulfilled and their placement as natural 11th Lords in the 7th House has been creative of a certain effect where the value of Indian economy and the strength of its currency has taken a beating.
What is required? Now Śani is exalted and in direct motion and joined Rāhu/Rahu and the dispositor Venus is currently indicating the basic malaise and problems associated with business in India. Firstly, the problem is rooted in spending money which one doesn't have since Venus is now debilitated and has no resources with which to fund the consumerist splurging. Rāhu shows foreign economies and their impact on Indian business. We know that business schools have been shutting down left, right and centre and the purple period has been long over though the recession in the US did not duplicate itself here.
What is required, again? Saturn shows basics and since it is exalted it shows adherence to the basics of survival in business and economics as the way out. We have to take serious note of the global economic situation especially of the economies which whom we interact significantly. We are not short of the intellectual wherewithal since Jupiter the significator of the treasury can provide clear insights as to precisely what is required and what will suffice.
This paper is being written in the Gajakeśarī/ Gajakesari Yoga in Mithuna Rāsi/ Rashi and so there is Jupiter's influence in this evaluation. We cannot pay those astronomical prices for onions because we do not have the money (Venus)-this is an analogy.
So when will things improve. Clearly when Venus joins the afflicting combination in Libra/ Tula though even here sparks may fly. This happens on 6th September, 2013. It is only then and thereafter that an astute evaluation of the resources could be made.
