May 2013 – this is a month which will demonstrate strong tendencies towards both good and bad. Our star map shows a concentration of stars around Taurus. For astrologers this gives a strong indication to look towards East Asia. Beware of investments in China.
China’s birth chart is based on the date of the founding of the new state on October 1st 1949, at 3:01:36 a.m. China was born in Libra with Aquarius and the Moon on the horizon. She was born by revolution and continues to evolve further by revolutionary economic changes. China’s karma is the karma of popular revolution. The Moon on the horizon represents the people.
Even so the base of this huge country is somewhat unstable. There are many icons on the map which concern the army, weapons, and aggression perhaps reminiscent of royalty, with aspects of corruption and lack of compassion. The star chart for 2013-2014 clearly indicates the possibility of economic recession there.
The stars are on the aspect indicating an identity crisis in power relationships, possibly with far-reaching economic effects. There may be arguments and disagreement with an internal struggle that could even lead to governmental changes. In the background there may be protests demanding higher wages for working Chinese people.
You could say that even though we will not see an immediate drop, China’s economy may begin to slow down considerably. It is important therefore to be careful about long-term investments there including marketing investments for product introductions.
The star map for India also shows the same cold east wind that could affect the economy in the whole of East Asia in the years ahead.
