A sluggish recovery

Since 2008, it has been predicted that the economy would revover but remain sluggish during the Saturn period of the SAMVA USA chart (February 2009 - April 2012).

In the article
Predictions for the USA in 2009 on December 30, 2008, the following was predicted:

"Saturn sub-period: The economy may become sluggish at this time."
On SAMVA list at 8:21 AM on September 18, 2009 it was also noted that

"The prediction by astrologer & author V.K. Choudhry for the US' economy to begin to show signs of recovery in September [2009] based on the SAMVA USA chart (Perpetual Union) has come true. That said, the recovery is also expected to remain sluggish in the Saturn sub-period until 2012."
About two years after the prediction was first made, it is being fulfilled. Note the use of words in a new report by S&P, their September 2010 Economic Forecast. It says:
"Sluggard: The economy has turned more sluggish than expected in the past few weeks, but we still expect the recovery to continue at half speed. "
As that was not enough, it was also predicted in late 2008 that
"As Saturn is a general indicator of the economy, working people and things mined from the ground, the reforms and issues will be focused on these areas of the national life."
The Deepwater Horizon disaster this summer has profoundly affected the policy of the US government on deep-sea mining. Unemployment is also a front-burner issue for the Obama administration.

Importantly the trend prediction based on the planetary period did not suggest the economy would lapse into depression or boom ahead, but simply enter a sluggish recovery as it evidently has. That said, the transits can have a major effect, as they have during the summer of 2010, raising concerns about the chance of another recession and a rise in unemployment.

It is no idle boast to say that the SAMVA USA chart really works in prediction!

During the latter part of the Venus period in the SAMVA USA chart, following the banking crisis of 2007/8, economic growth in the USA remained sluggish. In February 2016, the well-known economist Larry Summers suggested that the US economy had entered the "Age of secular stagnation."[1] Little did he know that the Sun major period of the SAMVA USA chart would begin two months later (in April 2016), which would usher in a more dynamic leadership that would reinvigorate economic activity in the country.[2] Since the election of Donald Trump as President in November 2016, investor and consumer confidence has been surging. This is in line with what was predicted in early 2010 for the USA at this time [3]. Adverse transits in the fall of 2017 may temporarily reduce the good going.
