A businessman controls his destiny, but he has to work harder with no one to guide and with no fixed income. Doing some business, setting up companies fascinates many, but not many succeed in their endeavors. I am trying to describe business-related issues first, from a layman's perspective & then co-relate how astrology can help in these business issues. To do that, I have a short true-life incident to share. I am a witness to the turn of events as I was a family astrologer of one of this story's characters.
How birth chart helps in Business Success?
Rahul Desai, Amit Thakur, Sanjay Modi, and Narendra Pradhan were four fast friends of an MBA program. While studying, they all had knit their dreams, and being the best buddies had even shared their respective plans. Towards their graduation stage, they had come to a common platform to open a business among themselves, each being a partner in the business.
Rahul Desai was from a medium service class family with a tiny support system from home. Amit Thakur was the son of an administrative officer in the Government of India; he had a robust background. Sanjay Modi came from a business family that had few shops which were doing relatively well. Narendra Shah hailed from a business family, his father, my Jajmaan (Client) was having a big cotton manufacturing business in Surat.
Being MBA graduates, they all sat down and joined their heads to decide what work they could collectively do. All were having some issues with finances, as Rahul's family was not in a position to afford. Amit Thakur's parents were reluctant to finance their son because they wanted him to either go for civil services examination or some corporate job. The Family of Sanjay Modi was desperately wanting him to join their business as they were short of dependable operating hands. Similarly, Narendra Shah's family also wanted their son to come and take the responsibility of the ever-growing business.
Why out of four partners, only one succeeded and three failed?
All four were determined to adhere to what they had thought. They all decided to open a glass sheet manufacturing unit. They shortlisted in Mahesana, a small industrial town near Ahemdabad (Gujarat). The calculations were made; all were required to contribute ten lakhs each to start the venture. Rahul Desai arranged the money from his family and took some loans on a personal capacity. For Amit Thakur, Sanjay Modi, and Narendra Shah, the challenge was to convince their families, which they did after some hardships.
They selected a name for their start-up, bought land, built a shed over it, and simultaneously did the paperwork and arranged for the machines and labour.
In nine months, they had arranged for everything, and their factory took off. Initially, it looked as if their efforts started to bear fruits. It was September 2002, when I heard from Narendra Shah's father that the company his son was running was struggling.
Several more companies had come up in the near vicinity doing the same job as these guys did. This led to cut-throat competition, but with the advent of Chinese finished material, their business, which as it is was struggling, just couldn't manage to survive. The quartet was not having any clue as to what had to be done next. Now, Rahul Desai, who had a weak background and borrowed substantial money from his family, had practically not earned a single penny for a year and a half, the time since he graduated.
There was a question mark on the survival of Rahul Desai as he was broke with no support from the family. On the contrary, Rahul's parents were giving him a desperate look for help. He broke; he could not take it longer. He decided to quit and was compelled to look for a job, which he got. The left partners were still strong, but with an accomplice gone, they suffered an emotional setback.
The company was not doing good at all. It was eating more money than it was giving. The trio had to borrow a substantial amount of money from their respective families even to pay off the wages, and other things to meet the other fixed expenditures.
Next in the lines to crumble was Amit Thakur. He was convinced by his parents to stop his idiotic endeavour and to focus on some jobs. He left the setup and took a corporate job and rapidly moved out of the country.
With two accomplices gone, the duo had very little choices. They had a responsibility to make good the failing business, but nothing much could be done. They had hired- purchase the land from the town's Industrial quota, and it was almost twenty-two months they had not paid back a single penny. All the municipal dues too were looming on to them.
Both of them wanted to quit, but since it was a legitimate firm, simply leaving was not the solution. Even if they disbanded their company, they had to pay the dues, which had crossed over twenty lakhs. The property would not sell as the dues on it were more than the property's worth. If they were to leave the factory as it was, they all could face some serious music from many departments and organizations of whom they owned money.
Both Sanjay Modi and Narendra Shah were reluctant to go ahead with the factory as they were scared of the worst was yet to come. Hectic discussions with all the stakeholders followed. It took another two months to reach a collective conscience. Narendra Shah was to quit, and Sanjay Modi would run the show on his own. Depending upon their exit time, the rest of the three paid some amount to Sanjay Modi so that he could continue the show.
Narendra Shah joined his family business, whereas Sanjay Modi tried to run the show on his own. He had some money to pay back the dues, which he did. Gradually he also transferred all the papers and the business entity to his name. For this, he opened a new firm with a name suggested by an astrologer. If you remember in the year, 2004 Gujarat Government offered some subsidy to young entrepreneurs which Sanjay Modi availed. He diversified from glass sheet business to cut-glass business. His company began to run. He was out of debt in 2006 and began to run the business on his own successfully. He had since then opened few more factories not only in the state of Gujarat but the neighboring state of Maharastra as well.
I have the horoscope all the four, they all are well placed in their respective fields. Rahul Desai is the CFO of a big corporate house. Amit Thakur has successfully settled abroad, Sanjay Modi is in the glass business, and many family members are now working for him. Narendra Shah is busy in this parental business.
Now the analysis of this tale and understand the points or stages where these people went wrong. And how a little care but at crucial stage and time would have converted this story of dismay to a story of success. That is where the astrology helps people in business decisions that I will explain now further down.

Choosing the right business – astrologically
Once you know that there is good business yoga in your horoscope, you should get the evaluation of the right business to be done. It is essential to get this evaluation as if you happen to choose the wrong business; the results would not come. The Dhan or wealth Yoga in the horoscope will not fructify, and the purpose of doing the business will thus get defeated. If these four people had consulted an astrologer what business to go for, this quartet might not have failed this badly. I have presented a free calculator to choose the right business through your birth chart for your convenience.

And how astrology helps a person selecting a lucky name for business or company is explained in the next paragraph.
Business name selection: astrologically
A sound syllable is forty percent essence of the strength of the business. If you keep a wrong name, it may not yield any or instead may produce negative results. When changing the name of the business entity as per his horoscope, Sanjay Modi got good results. If there is still a scope to change your business's name, I recommend availing this opportunity and getting the name corrected. Read my thorough write up on astrology for selecting a good business name if you have to select an auspicious name for business. Use the free calculator to choose the lucky business name yourself.

Then comes the decision whether you should do business alone or business in partnership will be better for you? Here also astrology helps you in the decision of partnership in business and selecting the right business partner. Now I will explain this point.
Decision of business partnership – astrologically
One may need partners in business to augment finances or skills. With the expanding business horizons, the need of partnerships in business is also increasing. But without checking the partnership compatibility, it could be the biggest mistake of your life if you are entering into one. See, the fastest of the friends could not run the show. It is not about disagreement; it is about the conduciveness of the stars to accomplish a task. As soon as the business was liberated of the partnership by these four, it started improving. It is not the question of intention but the compatibility of partners that matters. Therefore, it is imperative to look for partnership compatibility before going for any business. Every person has different yogas of business in the birth chart.
Here again, astrology helps to choose the right partner reading a birth chart. Read my comprehensive note on the partnership compatibility and check the compatibility through the compatibility free calculator yourself.

This write up can also help you to evaluate viability of your present business partnership.
Next to consider is when you decide to start a new business. Here again, astrology helps you deciding on start-up, a new business based on new business ideas. Please read about it now as below.
New business start-up/ideas
The techniques to evaluate a start-up business's fortunes differ from those run by the old horses of the trade. The above quartet opened a new start-up, and they failed miserly even though they are doing good in their respective fields individually. One particular business idea may suit an individual, but not all. The same way a new business may suit a specific person and not a group of persons. This is because (to repeat) each person has different yogas of doing and succeeding in business.
The fortunes of the start-up depend upon things that can be seen through the person's horoscope. Just see what the combined energy of the four could not do; Sanjay Modi could do it single handily. I have presented comprehensive research work on New Business start-up, just read it apply it to your horoscope.
Recently my views on astrology for the "Success of new business ideas" were endorsed by Outlook India which you can read in our News section below.
Decision of business expansion-seen through birth chart
The quartet had started a business thinking their skills will start and expand the company of their dreams. But nothing of this sought happened. On the contrary, the business shrank and collapsed. It is, therefore, essential to understanding the timing, which is deduced from Vedic astrology. One person keeps expanding a particular business or other businesses for decades but expansion of business by some fail miserably. Why because maintaining existence is more important than ambitions to grow.
Astrology can help you deciding on business expansion plans. I have explained the precise technique for you. I assure you that if the business yoga is present in a horoscope, I can easily foretell and predict how and when business expansion will suit you. Use the free-of-cost calculator to evaluate business expansion decisions through your birth chart.
How astrology helps in business success
Now think that we have taken good care of all the above factors for success in business but can still not manage business. Then what to do? Should we blame our own decisions & keep introspecting into the same or try to see if some planets or yogas in horoscope were responsible for the business's fall? Yes, Planets, Dasha (timings), Gochar (transits of planets) & malefic Yogas or combinations can result in business failure. Deep study of Business Astrology can tell reasons for fall in business or why one is not able to succeed in business? This is what I am explaining in the next section.
Fall in business-can astrology help?
If some fall is seen, there are remedies. It is essential to understand the signals what the horoscope gives. If we do not act per the transits and Dashas, the results can be drastic. I love to analyze the horoscopes of people who are suffering from a failing or falling business. This is because I have the cure. I can identify which particular planet or house is responsible for business success and which out of that would have left malefic effect for fall in your business. Once this is done, I would suggest simple remedial measures with short Karma corrections, which can change things for the better.
Mind you, it is the correction in your Karma (your acts, your decisions) and not rituals that help stop business failures. Read my comprehensive write up on fall in business solutions if you are facing fall in your business for some time.
I have also made a free calculator, which can warn you from facing a fall in business. Be very clear, maintaining the present business is more important than unviable business expansions.
