January 1st is a nominal ‘New Year’, also astrologically there is no obvious reason for it to be the beginning point. It was an act of a powerful Roman government to consolidate conflicting regional calendars. However, a true Astrological New Year is based on the return of Sun to Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. The Sun, embodies your father, political power, and your own vitality. Start new ventures on the Vedic New Year with the full support of the Sun.

Did You Know?
In Vedic Astrology there is a 60 year cycle based on 5 revolutions of Jupiter around the Sun (5*12 years=60 years). This 60 year repeating cycle is divided into 3 groups of 20 years each: 1st 20 years are assigned to Brahma, 2nd 20 years are assigned to Vishnu, and the 3rd 20 years are assigned to Shiva. The 60 year cycle is thousands of years old and is observed by most traditional calendars of India and China. 2013 is called Vijaya and it is the 27th year in the 60 year cycle.
Venus is exalted (maximum strength) when located in the sign of Pisces. As Venus is the 2nd most benefic planet, an exalted Venus is usually associated with good things. But the word exalted only relates to the strength of Venus, it does not relate to the nature of Venus. Therefore an exalted Venus can give either benefic or malefic results depending on the horoscope. A malefic Venus that is exalted can be very destructive. Remember Venus is also known as the God of War.
