This is the most uncharted and loved to hate topic though
Uncharted because, vastly, people believe that astrology is used to know matters in one’s life. Then in lesser numbers people find that astrology can be used to find an auspicious time to conduct an event whereby insuring success or against failure. Furthermore people believe that astrology can be used to decide which commodities will have bull runs and bear runs at various times in the future. There are even a few who use astrology in sports betting and predicting world events of mundane nature. There are now signs that people are approaching towards astrology as a Management tool mainly because with increased literacy, intelligence, information, many people study astrology and find out similies in the various significations of horoscope.
Let’s talk about the fifth house of a chart. It signifies child birth (obviously in communion with other house and planets).
Now look at subsidiaries, what are they? Children of the parent company?
Ok how will you look at production? The eighth house of regenerative organs, friends!!!!!. HR any one? Look at your sixth house of sub ordinates. So can it be possible to foretell HR issues? Of course, look at the negative transits to the sixth house, its lord, the natural significator of HR (Saturn) also observe which planet is making this transit, this may tell you the nature or cause and/or the department. Tell me can there be a MIS tool which can do this? Would it not be fabulous to know well in advance when you will be short of cash? You can then time your WC accordingly; your treasury functions could be strategically calculated accordingly. This can also set in motion, the discovery process (what could lead to this financial problem) and thereby nip it in the bud.
What is managing all about? Foreseeing opportunities and challenges, creating opportunities and challenges ——- for others, reducing the risks, maximizing the profits, handling uninterrupted flow of resources(finance, HR, Raw material, etc.)
How can you do this?
Well astrology can do all that.
Management would not or does not want to accept that astrology can be used in many ways for effective and productive business. They are more attuned to MIS tools that they have the control on. One would definitely trust a systematic and scientific tool, which one has been taught to use at B-School.
These and more reasons can be given for being in favour of management tools and against astrology as a management tool. Well let me say something too.
Astrology is one of the oldest logical sciences in the world, developed obviously from multiple observations. Please tell me, why Mars has been considered as a war lord in Greek and Roman mythology and astrology? Indian Vedic system too says the same things as also other systems of astrology. To note here, is of importance that these principles were construed even before these civilizations had come in touch with each other. Probe further and you will notice that there are many similarities in almost all systems of astrology. Indian, Western horoscopy, Numerology, Tarot and many others talk of Sun as soul and Moon as mind, why has not even a single system of astrology differed? Ok lets take time off here and really think.
There definitely thus is a systematic scientific logical analysis and empirical proof with these systems to have individually decided on the basic fundamentals of astrology. The multitude of sub patterns to help predict the future vary vastly amongst these systems is the stark truth, but is of little importance to us here, while we will definitely take a dig at these prediction styles and tools, may be in later workshops.
Let me now give you some basic tips.
Mercury takes care of all communications, communication equipments, and computer systems amongst many other things. When you notice that you are facing issues with this there are possibilities of
transitting Mercury is retrograde
transiting Mercury is accelerated
Transiting Mercury is combust
Transiting Mercury is in applying negative aspects like conjunction, opposition or square to naturally malefic planets Rahu, Ketu, Mars, Saturn. This may also reveal the nature of communication problems.
Logistics comes under Saturn and of course a bit of Mercury and Mars, but its main domain ruler is Saturn. A disturbed Saturn calls for logistics issues. HR too, mainly the labour comes under the purview of Saturn, so whenever you find labour unrests or problems, check transiting Saturn or aspects to your natal Saturn.
The ascendant of any person’s natal chart indicates his basic nature. You can use this knowledge in recruitment at lower levels and middle cadre. Senior Managers you are obviously going to hire, the ones who have exhibited success in their careers. It’s the army (your entry level and middle level managers, that counts. No company can afford having misfits. His/hers education can be different but the nature and characteristics that one comes with determine the person’s ability to put the acquired knowledge to productive use.
Lets have an example.
You need a sales guy for financial products and services.
One may hire a fresh graduate or PG or someone who has experience of a couple of years with or without education or training in finance. He opts for the job because sales, is the major employer, he wants to have a high salary and glamorous career in the finance sector. This guy chooses sales as a domain and finance as sector on any basis other than science, he does not know his aptitude for sales as and finance. There are definitely various profiling tools to know this, but why would he do so? And why should you too? Why spend so much, where there is a lot of attrition. Well if you know that he is an Arian (by ascendant or sun sign or moon sign or ascendant lord placement) with a combination of a strong second house or its influence on the tenth house or it lord), you know that he will be more comfortable and enjoy this work of selling financial products. In this manner you can determine recruitment of a more satisfied work force which can individually and collectively be more productive at less cost to the company. Your costs could be recruitment costs, training, loss of opportunities and business due to a misfit, low morale spreading around, time spent on motivating a misfit.
The key to recruiting through astrology is, to first identify your needs in each department and the particular position, then select people who have formal education and training in the same, the last step is to select a person who best matches your requirements through astrology. You have now hedged the maximum risks and opened up more opportunities to have a successful work force.
To understand more on how many ways astrology can be useful in management you may want to write to me. Before that you may also want to read my following articles It’s a long list, but interesting, giving you insights into what’s possible by astrology.
When you go through the articles on Nano, think, if Ratan Tata had taken my advice (ok being more modest a knowledgeable astrologer) he would have saved a lot on time, money, efforts, HR and may have rolled out his car faster.
There are many other private success stories, which i cannot share for obvious reasons of professional integrity.

In short you can definitely plan well in advance about your company and make it more profitable.
Astrology is not limited to knowing when one will get married or how many kids or when will go abroad. It is also not about predicting the prices of commodities and make huge profits by speculating. Astrology is a wonderful management tool if used wisely.
