What 2015 has in store for you
Astro-numerologist Sanjay B Jumaani explains what your numbers have to say about the New Year
The year 2015 totals up to 8 (2+0+1+5). The number 8 is represented by Saturn that has a strong effect on the first two months of the year, namely the Capricorn and Aquarius zo diac signs. This is the only planet that rules for two months continuously . The Libra pe riod is also influenced by 8 (Saturn) jointly with 6 (Venus). Those born in this period, along with on the 8th, 17th and 26th, are influenced by number 8. It’s believed that Saturn (Shani) brings about delays and misfortunes, but this is not always the case.Saturn is regarded as the Lord of Judgment. Saturn teaches us that life is not always a bed of roses. And when Saturn gives, it can give in abundance. Num ber 8 is also quite spiritual, which is why most renowned saints have been born on the 8th, 17th or 26th.
The year 2015 could be extreme for those born on a No 4 (Uranus) or dates which add up to 4 or 8, like 4th, 8th, 13th, 17th, 22nd, 26th or 31st. Those born under the numbers 1 (Sun), 3 (Jupiter), 5 (Mercury) and 6 (Venus) can expect a smoother sailing this year.
To appease Saturn, hard work and good deeds are the best ways.
Apart from this, using one’s lucky numbers, colours and a fortunate name can avoid problems connected to this number.
There are two circles in the figure 8, one on top while the other is at the bottom. Peo ple affected by this number usually tend to get caught in either the upper or the lower cir cle, denoting either a powerful life or one filled with mishaps. There is hardly ever a middle path.
We get 8 if the year is written as 2015, so if we write ’15 instead of 2015 it adds up to 6, denoting Venus (harmony).
2015 FOR INDIA
India adds up to the number 12 that denotes sacrifice. If it was officially named Bharat, it would add up to the peaceful and prosperous number 15. While there would be a few hurdles in the first half of the year 2015, as Saturn first takes trials, on August 15 India will enter its 69th year of Independence, which promises better times, as 69 = 6 (Venus).
USE SHADES OF BLUE IN 2015
Black represents Saturn, and wearing black can make us invite Saturn. After consulting with us, none of the IPL teams sport black, which is considered as inauspicious in many communities, and is also the colour of mourning. Many years ago, I had warned Sahara Shri Subroto Roy against this, as he overdid black and got his staff to wear black uniforms, too. Last year, his IPL team Pune Warriors that wore black also had to shut shop.
SRK’s KKR was at the bottom of all the first four IPL seasons, until they changed their uniform to purple at our suggestion. They’ve won two trophies in three years soon after the change. The New Zealand ODI Team has been struggling, and has been wearing black for ages. To reduce the influence of Saturn in 2015, we should use all shades of blue that represents Venus.
THE OTHER SIDE OF SATURN
There is, however, one extreme side of Saturn (Shani) that can take one to great heights as well, so number 8s can rejoice, too. Incidentally, Dr Manmohan Singh and PM Narendra Modi are both number 8s, whose names add up to auspicious numbers. The best numbers for num ber 8 are 1 (Sun), 3 (Jupiter), 5 (Mercury) and 6 (Venus). Dr Manmohan Singh adds up to 1 and Narendra Modi to 5. Blockbuster Kick adds up to 8 and gave Salman fans a reason to celebrate. The extreme side of Saturn or number 8 can be gauged by the following incidents.Navjot Singh Sidhu was involved in a road rage incident in his 26th (8) year, and jailed when he was 44. Former Maharashtra CM Ashok Chavan was ousted in his 53rd year, Sharad Pawar slapped in his 71st. SRK broke his shoulder, his film Bil 53rd year, Sharad Pawar slapped in his 71st. SRK broke his shoulder, his film Bil lu and KKR did miserably in his 44th year, Akshay Kumar also struggled for a hit in his 44th year. At the same time, however, AR Rahman brought home an Oscar in his 44th year, and Gary Kirsten picked up the World Cup for India in his 44th year. Saturn also doesn’t encourage shortcuts, so speculative industries like stock markets or gambling of any kind usually don’t favour number 8s. Stock markets may feel jittery, especially till 1508. Along with taking trials, it also blesses one with will-power and determination. Industries that demand patience, like invest ments in landproperty , farming, mining, agriculture, research, sci ence, spirituality , yoga, alternate sciences and accountancy may do better in 2015 than last year.
2015 ACCORDING TO NUMBERS
People born on the 1st, 10th, 19th and 28th of any month are termed as Number 1 people, ruled by the Sun. Leos are also ruled by the Sun, though indirectly. In Numerology , the number 1 rep resents the Sun and so is a fortunate number, especially if the person it represents is in charge or in a position of authority . The relation between number 1 and 8 (2015) is as harmo nious or disharmonious as a father-son relationship.
Number 1s could face a little strain initially, but overall it will be a decent year, and the second half can cover up well enough for the first. While your juniors will look upon you for light, avoid altercations with elders.

The number 8 (2015) and 3 are accommo dating of each other, with Jupiter (Guru), that’s like a teacher while Saturn (Shani) a strict principal. Both be lieve in trials and tests, so gear up for being tested and examined. Think long-term and avoid short-term speculations. Or else it would be a mixed year, where you would see great progress at times, and setbacks at oth er occasions. Financially , it appears to be a better year than 2014. A better year to kick-start a new project or enterprise, provided you are ready to wait to break even.

People born on the 4th, 13th, 22nd and 31st of any month are termed as number 4s, ruled by Uranus. Uranus (4) is linked with the Sun (1), so they are also indirectly influenced by the magnetic rays of the Sun. The numbers 8 (2015) and 4 attract each other strongly which can be extreme, too, hence it would be a par ticularly eventful year with fortunes that could swing either way . Look before you leap, especially if it’s something as important as marriage or joining another organization. Your finances may require streamlining and your attention. Problems might crop up in personal relations if you do not think before you speak. On the other hand, if not laid-back in your approach, you could win accolades for your brave performances.

Stress can cause stomach ail ments, too, apart from making you irritable and shorttempered. But Mercury blesses with recuperative powers, ensuring that you bounce back from difficult situations. Nervous disorders can be warded off with an emerald and with you learning to focus on one thing at a time. Relationships will get healthier with your optimism.
People born on the 6th, 15th and 24th of any month are termed as number 6, ruled by Venus. Venus also governs Librans and Taurus born.

Do not always listen to your heart alone. Take care of those dependent on you. Those looking for a new property can be rewarded if finances are in order.

The focus should be on continuity so prod on; the efforts made in 2014 (7) could fruc tify, helping you buy time. You could also peri odically live on past laurels though it would be foolish to thrive or bank on them often.
Frequent mood swings could be indicated this year. The number 8 (Saturn) teaches will power so long-cuts would not necessarily mean a waste of time. Take out some time for spirituality and meditation. Though financially you could think to be in a spot of bother, it could be more because of your insecurity than actual trouble. Travel could materialise and you could get love and support from loved ones, so reciprocate by showing them your gratitude.
People born on the 8th, 17th, and 26th of any month are termed as number 8s, ruled by Saturn. The number 8 also presides over the zodiacal signs of Capricorns, Aquarians and Librans.

Try not to let your ego come in the way , sometimes it’s best to sit back and enjoy the view instead of being in the driver’s seat at all times. Be wary of minor ac cidents or sudden illnesses.
