At times we look at successful people and wonder, ‘What did they do? How did they get everything right to be able to rise from failure to success?’ We ask ourselves, ‘Was it luck, destiny or the karmas of the past life that made them successful today?’ Of course, we always wish that we could be as successful as they are. Sometimes it seems as though such people were born to be successful, but could that be true of all of them? Consider the huge Indian startup businesses of today, for instance. Do they not make us wonder at the reasons for the revolutionary success of these entrepreneurs?

India has emerged as the third largest startup ecosystem globally with 107 unicorns, over 77,000 startups. The Indian startup growth story is at a tipping point today. The stars really seem to be aligning for the booming startup ecosystem in India and so are the signs of astrological solutions for entrepreneurs who seem to be knitting their success stories day in and day out.

Snapdeal, Byjus, Paytm, Oyo, Ola, Swiggy, Lenskart, Upgrad, Cred, BharatPe, Blinkit and all the other names in this ever expanding exhaustive list has established the investors’ faith in these entrepreneurs and now their proven potential to establish unicorns. The Silicon Valley of India housing the bright startup ecosystem right next to global giants like Google, Amazon and Facebook is abundant evidence of the growth and success of these entrepreneurships.

The negative side of this glorious revolution is that most people get carried away by the wave and enthusiastically put in their life resources into ventures, but are unable to face the risks of failure. This can surely be prevented by taking astrological guidance and precautions thereon. Every year thousands aspire to be entrepreneurs, but very few succeed in becoming one. But these individuals have been consistently struggling to attract opportunities that can be achieved by astrological remedies.

Believe it or not, even tycoons of the startup industry and unicorns are firm believers of astrology and its relevance in their decision making. I am often called for astrological consultation and advise from my clients and even those who are not, before funding meetings, product launches and everything else concerned with their business – huge or minute ‒ when it comes to taking decisions. The astrological sensitivity and cautiousness have often mended the ways of those who might have fallen by the wayside mid-way through their ventures.

Astrology can help significantly in navigating startups towards success. The science of astrology lets you know if you possess the acumen to carry out a certain business, the type of business that would potentially be profitable for you and the expansion of which will be favoured by your planetary compositions. There is no denying that hard work, innovation and experimentation builds an entrepreneur, but what are the forces that induce these qualities?

However, sometimes despite all the efforts one tends to fail and that is not due to the individual’s inefficiency but unfavourable planetary compositions. Astrology helps you align your cosmos with your career goals to avoid downfalls and to strive towards success. Not only does astrology guide you but also saves you from possible doom by warning you beforehand.

Success in entrepreneurship is assessed by the ruling planet in a person’s horoscope. However, there is no specific zodiac sign that can be associated with entrepreneurial success. Success in business happens only when there is a potent business yoga in the horoscope that fructifies at the right time. Often, the Shubh Yoga for a successful business is present, but it is not nourished by time. The planetary composition does not support it.

Some ruling planets may rule for a definite period and, after that, slide into   oblivion. It can also be a matter of chance that a person has many ruling planets that suggest many businesses. In birth charts, the second, seventh and tenth houses are dedicated business houses that are read to assess business success. The Yogas that form in these charts and these houses tell of the amount of business success one would have in life.

While hardwork and perseverance are inevitable factors for attaining success, the planets, their placement in the houses of your horoscope and the Yogas in your birth chart, play a significant role in determining your career and success thereon.
