This will have a deep and abiding influence on astrological vaticination and hence it is important to plan your actions according to the cosmic movement with respect to your individual sun sign. While the year 2021 promises better times for Bollywood , certain celestial changes may not be favourable in particular cases.

“But, no need to worry.
Astro-Strategy is the Key &
