Corporate Astrology: A whole new aspect of the Business of Stars…




Celebrity astrologer Sundeep Kochar talks about how the faith of corporate sector in astrology has given birth to a new branch of reading the stars

You must have heard about people seeking astrologers’ advice regarding their personal issues. But did you know that major league industries and firms, too, seek astrologers’ advice? Well, you read that right. The faith of corporate sector in astrology has given birth to a new form of astrology – corporate astrology.

Though astrology has been more profusely used by the Bollywood stars before signing the contract of any new movie project, corporates in recent times also want to stay away from any risk in this intensely competitive world. “This is the chief reason why they have started looking for the guidance and the influence of the planets,” Dr Kochar stated without revealing any names from his clientele in both film fraternity & corporates.

“Seeking astrological advice before taking any important decision or embarking upon an important journey has been a tradition in India since the Vedic period. In ancient India, emperors used to have a council of astrologers. It was this council they consulted before bringing major policies into action or waging a war against their enemies,” pointed out Dr Sundeep Kochar.

He continued, “The big business houses which are thriving today are no less than emperors themselves. After all, they are ruling the markets worldwide. The way astrology used to be perceived has also undergone a transformation. It is now considered as a science, and this has contributed a lot in cementing business community’s belief in it.”

Celebrity astrologer Sundeep Kochar believes that special astrological positions present a set of unique opportunities to both individuals as well as corporate houses. Elaborating further, he said, “Mercury is the planet of finance and Venus is the planet of luxury. A favorable alignment of both these planets creates golden opportunities in business. These opportunities, if utilized properly, can not only safeguard the company’s existing portfolio, but can also optimize the future investments.”

Many Indian and international clients of Dr. Sundeep Kochar seek ‘Corporate Astrology’ not only for their partnerships, mergers and tie-ups, but also take inputs of astrology before hiring key people in their organization. “It looks like in the coming years the job applicant has to attach his horoscope along with the resume to set his stars aligned with the company,” Dr Kochar chuckled.

Dr Sundeep Kochar firmly believes and professes that there is no shortcut to success. According to him, astrology is just a tool which helps a person take on the most favorable path. However, the result of one’s endeavors solely depends upon the amount of hard work being poured in and taking right decision at the right time.

He was quick to remind a famous quote of J.P Morgan, “Anyone can become a millionaire, but to become a billionaire you need a good astrologer.”
