But statistics show that 50% of businesses wind up in their first year of their operation and 80% of the rest wind up in the subsequent years. This means that only 10% of the lot continue to operate and that too not necessarily with profit.
Astrologically, there has to be business yoga in the horoscope of a native who wishes to start a business. Specific planetary configurations make a business yoga, which may probably be hard for the commoners to understand, but it is not that hard to understand what this yoga will confer on to the native. This business yoga, if present in the horoscope, will lead to the following traits in the native:
•Good communication skills
•The ability to pitch up the business
The more the above mentioned properties, the stronger is the yoga. The next talking point is the dhan yoga. The presence of this yoga in the horoscope signifies that the native will accumulate wealth from his business pursuits.
The employee or the employer yoga:
To sum up things astrologically, a person who wishes to start his business is examined of the employee or the employer yoga in his horoscope, and along with it, his horoscope is evaluated for the strength of his lagna and the degree of dhan yoga.
The partner issue:
The next question which has to be addressed is to see whether or not the native can run the show with a partner. Starting a business with a partner could be a very nice idea, but if the horoscope does not support a partner, then this partnership could be the most significant pitfall a native would have. The partnership issue is not that simple; it has to be addressed through various charts like D-1, D-9, D-10 & D-12, which are seen in tandem, and the following things become crystal-clear:
•Whether the native can get a trustworthy partner or not
•Who has the common vision and goals as the native
•Who is passionate about the work
•Who can solve problems
•Whether or not the partner is a confident team player
•Who has the will to execute and simultaneously remain aware of the business in the market
•The partner should have integrity and be accommodating.
Now, if the horoscope is found to be short of these abilities, it is better to start the business without a partner. Many times it so happens that the native himself is not up to the mark or he cheats on his partner. So, it is imperative to check the strength of the 7th house in different divisional charts and recommend methods so that the native overcomes his shortcomings.
Types of businesses:
The chart holds many secrets, and an important one is the type of business that the native can run successfully. An in-depth reading gives a clue to these most elusive traits. The types of businesses are
•Service business: A service business is recommended to the native when putting in money into the business could ruin the company and its prospects. The types of service businesses include advisory jobs, commission agents, accounting firms, repair shops, salons, law firms, etc.
•Merchandising business: These businesses can be done by natives whose horoscopes have a clear-cut indication of buy-and-sell type of businesses. These businesses make a profit after selling their items at higher rates than the purchase prices.
•Manufacturing business: A manufacturing business requires massive investments. There is a prominent yoga for this business in a horoscope.
After the type of business is decided, the chart D-60 is further studied for the kind of business the native should be doing. The planet which has the most significant influence on the 10th house and its lord is seen. If the significations of planets are evaluated correctly, then the kind of business the native should undertake would no longer be a riddle. For example, a suitable influence of Ketu on the 10th house indicates success in agriculture business, alcohol business, etc. Similarly, the influence of moon suggests business in pharmaceuticals, tube wells, glass and mirror, etc. Likewise, Mercury indicates that a trade involving some research work, art and culture, doctor, accountancy, etc., will give good results.
The next big question is when to start:
The largest of the business yoga can collapse if it is not started at the right time. This means that if the dasha or the gochar is negative, then the business yoga would not show good colours. So, it is always helpful to start the work at a time suggested in the horoscope. It is still better to wait than to perish.
Almost all businesses rely on loan, and the amount of credit which is allowed for a native may depend upon his financial capabilities. But it has to be seen through the horoscope as well, as many excellent business yogas crumble under a load of loans. So, before any credit is taken from anywhere, it is imperative to see what amount would not shake the foundation of the business in question. I have seen many businesses closed on account of non-payment of loans or companies going bankrupt.
These are a few things which, if taken care of, the native will surely save himself/herself from complications in business.
