One of the daunting tasks for the astrologer is how to predict the next Prime Minister of India. It is easy to predict the electoral outcome of the US Presidential elections but not so easy with the parliamentary elections of India where a plethora of parties with pre-poll and post-poll adjustments are ruling the scene. There are nearly a dozen leaders around, with ambitions for the PM’s chair, thereby making it difficult to predict who among them would be getting the Prime Ministership. Each of them will be capable of winning the election which can be made out from the running of the favourable times and Raja yogas in their horoscopes. But who among them will become the Prime Minister is something tricky to predict. There is also the problem of lack of reliable birth details of many of these leaders for astrological analysis. Though there is every chance that the date of birth available in the official records may be correct, the authentic information on the time of birth of most of the politicians is not available. In the absence of reliable birth time details, this article is written to explore other ways to identify the probable PM candidates among the aspiring leaders. This analysis is based on the premise the one who takes up the mantle of Prime Minister’s responsibility will have some connection with India’s destiny such that certain factors in the prospective PM’s horoscope must match with Indian Independence chart. The rationale for this is similar to how a man and a woman’s horoscopes are matched on the premise that the two share a karmic bond and are destined to carry out their actions in tune with a shared destiny. The Moon being the Manokaraka, it is taken as the mind of the nation and also the people of the nation. The 7th house from the moon is the aspirant for the PM’s chair. The 4th house is the home of the people where people’s aspiration lie and the 10th house is the outcome of the 4th house which shows whether the aspirations match with the charisma of the leader who would be propelled to lead the nation and influence the people’s destiny. In this mapping, moon is the central to all calculations. Saturn signifies people’s support. The presence of Sasa yoga ensures that a person leads the people or the nation. Of all the three positions of Saturn – in Capricorn, Aquarius and Libra – the exalted location of Saturn in Libra is a highly desired factor for winning the people’s heart in a democracy, for, the 10th (karmic) aspect of Saturn from Libra falls on the house of moon in kataka which is the 4th house of home in the natural zodiac. Rama’s horoscope had this combination wherein Moon was situated in Kataka receiving the aspect of exalted Saturn. There is no need to elaborate how Rama was loved by his subjects and how his destiny was also shared by his countryman which is made out from the narration of how the people of Ayodhya grieved when Rama went on exile. Interestingly, Indian Independence chart has a predominant leaning towards the significances of Moon and Saturn. The Moon, signifying the mind of the nation and its people is positioned in its own house (kataka). The 7th lord from moon is owned by Saturn which is joining Moon in Kataka. People –
leader connect is well made out in this combination and is seen manifest as hero-worshiping tendency of the masses of their favourite leaders. Therefore it is deduced that anyone aspiring to rule the people must have Saturn well connected to Kataka (Indian Moon sign) and its 7th house (Capricorn). In addition, the Rahu- Ketu axis binds the destiny of such a leader to the nation’s destiny. This axis would favourably act between Kataka (moon sign of the Indian Independence chart) and its 7th house, Capricorn. A simple statistical survey of the horoscopes of the Prime Ministers of India was done to check whether these two factors (Moon- Saturn connection to Kataka and Capricorn and Ra- Ke axis between them) were present in their horoscopes to see how far they influenced the country’s growth and stature.

This chart throws up some interesting information that does indicate that the PM’s destiny matches with the destiny of the nation. Foremost observation is that there were only 2 leaders who had Saturn exalted in their horoscopes casting the karmic aspect on Kataka, the moon sign of India. They were Morarji Desai and Vajpayee who were the only two leaders to reach the PM’s chair in a kind of wave like people’s support against the then existing governments. Among them Morarji Desai could not consolidate his leadership whereas Vajpayee could, which is perhaps linked to the retrograde motion of Saturn in Morarji Desai’s horoscope but a forward moving Saturn in Vajpayee’s horoscope. The presence of Rahu- Ketu axis with Kataka and Capricorn in both Rasi and Navamsa charts of Vajpayee shows that his leadership was written in the destiny of the nation. His emergence was indicative of a difference and deviation from the existing type of politics and the status quo. In comparison, V.P. Singh, Narasimha Rao and I.K. Gujral did not have Saturn in Capricorn or Libra in their horoscopes showing their limited appeal with the masses. Gulzarilal Nanda had nothing of the basics we deduced in both Rasi and Navamsa thereby showing his role only as a stop gap arrangement. The importance of Saturn in connection to Kataka is well made out from Charan Singh and Deve Gowda who did have their appeal with their own constituencies which earned them a say in national politics. They were the only 2 Prime Ministers who had Saturn in own house in opposition to Kataka, the moon sign of India. Jawaharlal Nehru and Chandrashekar come us ideologues basically and that can be seen in their moon in Kataka, the Indian moon sign which means their mind was on nation’s needs and they could grasp what the nation needed. Chandrashekar had only this feature of the basic features, whereas Nehru could go an additional mile by virtue of having Saturn (people’s support and adoration) in Kataka in his Navamsa. The Rahu- Ketu axis in his Navamsa ensured that he was capable of intruding into the nation’s destiny. The almost forgotten Lal Bhagadur Shastri was indeed the architect of India’s growth. He ushered in the Green revolution and Milk revolution (Operation Flood). In addition he handled the worst crisis after partition namely the Indo- Paksitan war and ended it with Tashkent declaration. One can see that he had a far stronger karmic bond with India than Nehru himself. He had Saturn in the 7th house from Indian moon sign. Its retrogression shows reversal, meaning to say that he was not a darling of masses. But its aspect on Kataka gave him an inevitable role in nation building. His Navamsa having both Moon and Saturn in Kataka made him chart out plans that had people as the prime beneficiaries. A similar trend, but to a limited extent can be seen in Manmohan Singh’s horoscope. He too has retrograde Saturn in Capricorn like Lal Bhagadur Shastri thereby making him catapult to power with
less mass appeal. But with no combinations in the Navamsa, he is reduced to lesser role in nation’s positive growth though with his Moon in kataka in mutual aspect with Saturn in Capricorn in the Rasi, he is able to push through where nation’s interest is concerned – like in the case of nuclear deal. Now we are left with only 2 dignitaries, Indra Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Rajiv Gandhi’s connection to Indian destiny is completely karmic by having only Rahu – Ketu axis in Rasi and Navamsa. The powerful role that Indra Gandhi had in the Nation’s destiny can be made out from the exchange of Moon and Saturn between Kataka and Capricorn in the Rasi. In her Navamsa, Saturn in own house in the 7th from the Indian moon sign shows her deep presence in the Nation’s continuing destiny. To strengthen this bond, she had Rahu-Ketu axis in her Navamsa. With this kind of input, is it possible to judge the karmic connection to the nation, for the present day’s aspiring leaders? Let us first check the much talked about dynastic celebrities. (1) The family of Rajiv Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi 09-12-1946 Turin, Italy 19-06-1970 New Delhi 11-01-1972 New Delhi Retro Saturn in Kataka -

Retro Saturn’s 3rd aspect on Kataka Ra/Ke axis
The most visible feature is that Rahul Gandhi is nowhere in the reckoning. He has Saturn in debility in Rasi and there is no connection between Kataka and Capricorn except the Rahu- Ketu axis in Navamsa. His father had this axis in both Rasi and Navamsa but he has only in Navamsa. This shows the limited role he has in nation’s destiny. His sister Priyanka too does not have the benefit of Saturn except that she has retrograde Saturn in Taurus casting its 3rd aspect on Kataka. Due to retrogression, this 3rd aspect also is lost as a retro planet is supposed to have gone to the previous sign which makes her Saturn a debilitated one (in Aries). This indicates that there will be lack of popular support for both the siblings. Like her brother, she too has the Rahu- Ketu axis in only one of the two charts we have taken for analysis. The only Prime Minister with this only feature (of axis) who managed to be in power was I.K. Gujral who was a Prime Minister for just 11 months. Going by this precedence, even if Rahul or Priyanka could get into the PM’s chair, it would be not on popular support but by number game as it happened with Gujral. They would not be in the chair for long, nor would they have anything to do with Indian destiny. This shows that the Nehruvian dynasty is no longer going to play a role in Indian destiny. This leaves us with Sonia Gandhi whose Saturn has gone to Indian moon sign and regresses there. This shows that she does have a role connected to Indian destiny, but the retrogression shows that it will move away from the nation’s need and mind (moon sign).
(2) Pawar family. Sharad Pawar 12-12-1940 Pune 30-06-1969 Pune Saturn in debility and retrogression Saturn in debility -

Both father and daughter have debilitated Saturn that shows that they can never have the requisite support to rise to PM’s position. But Supriya’s Rahu- Ketu axis in Navamsa with Saturn in Kataka shows that she would have a larger role than her father in her heydays. But PM’s chair is ruled out. Though some past Prime Ministers did not have favourable Saturn in Capricorn or Libra, none of them had debilitated Saturn is a point to be borne in mind. (3) Karunanidhi family.

Both the father and the son have exalted Saturn casting an aspect on Indian Moon sign. But its retrogression shows the negative or regressive nature of their role. Interestingly, Kanimozhi has exalted Saturn in her Navamsa which is suffering from retrogression. However the absence of other features (for PM) shows that PM’s chair does not wait for this dynasty. But what is present in their horoscopes show that they would have a role in regional politics which is absent in the other sibling namely Azagiri whose horoscope does not have any of the features we have taken for analysis. (4) Scindia family. Madahvrao Scindia 10-03-1945 Mumbai 01-01-1971 Mumbai Moon in Capricorn Saturn in Capricorn

The Royal family had the father no more in existence. But this is taken up to see whether the factors we have deduced do play a role. The father had a perfect exchange of the two planets that show the appeal he enjoyed from the people. The son’s Rasi position of Saturn is not too promising, but the
exalted Saturn in Navamsa shows that he will rise in power but not necessarily to PM’s chair and not as popular as his father. This leaves us with other Prime Ministerial aspirants from the Congress party, the BJP and other regional parties. Let us first see the Congress aspirants. P. Chidambaram 16-09-1945 Sivaganga 08-08-1948 Jalandhar 28-12-1940 Allepey 09-04-1954 Chikmagalur 04-09-1941 Solapur 01-01-1953 Aligarh Ra/Ke axis

Just by a cursory look, P.Chidambaram, Kapil Sibal and AK Antony are ruled out. Chidambaram’s Rahu – Ketu axis in Navamsa shows that he does have a karmic role in Indian destiny but not as a PM. Of the next three, Shinde has a limited role but Jairam Ramesh and Salman Kurshid have better chances. Even among them Salman Kurshid scores better with all the factors being present. He has excellent vargoththama positions of Saturn and Moon, has exalted Saturn both in Rasi and Navamsa, Moon in kataka and Rahu- Ketu axis in both the charts. If the UPA wins or manages to gobble up enough numbers, Salman Kurshid stands a better chance to be the Prime Minister than anyone else among the Congress aspirants. Pranab Mukerjee’s horoscopic factors are also given to show how these factors limit a person’s role in nation’s destiny. He may be the First Citizen of India, but has less role in Nation’s destiny. Now let us take a look at the BJP aspirants. L.K. Advani 08-11-1927 Karachi 17-09-1950 Vadnagar 14-02-1953 -

LK Advani, Narendra Modi and Gadkari are ruled out. Only Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley stand a chance. Among them, Jaitley has more chances to play a role in nation’s destiny as he has vargoththama Saturn in exaltation aspecting Indian moon sign, besides having Rahu – Ketu axis in both Rasi and Navamsa. Let us now see other regional leaders. Mulayam Singh Yadav 22-11-1939 Etawah 15-01-1956 New Delhi 05-01-1955 Kolkatta 24-02-1948 Mysore 01-03-1951 Patna 16-10-1946 Cuttack 27-02-1943 Mandya 21-12-1972 Pulivendla

Mulayam Singh cannot realise his PM dream as he has Saturn in debility in both the charts. The basic factors are absent thereby showing that he would not have any role in Nation’s growth. Nitish Kumar also is totally ruled out. Of the other aspirants, only Mamata Banerjee has an exalted Saturn to come in the group of Salman Kurshid, Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj.
As a special note on Yeddyurappa, his popular support base is feeble as seen from Saturn in Taurus (3rd aspect on Kataka) and debilitated Saturn in Navamsa. However Kataka becoming important with Moon and Saturn influence has made him come so far in politics. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s role also is limited in national politics though in regional politics he will have his own support base as seen from Saturn in kataka in Navamsa casting its aspect on its own sign. His is comparable with Priyanka Vadra’s as she too has retro Saturn casting its 3rd aspect on kataka. Conclusion:- From what we have seen so far, a near perfect score is seen in the case of Salman Kurshid, Arun Jaitley, Sushma Swaraj and Mamata Banerjee. Interestingly all these four have exalted Saturn which worked only for 2 Prime ministers of India, namely Morarji Desai and Vajpayee. On both occasions, their rise was against the incumbent Government. The exalted Saturn gives popular support that pushes up the leader against the existing set up. If that rationale is true, then we have to rule out Salman Kurshid. However analysis of individual horoscopes of these four leaders will give a better picture of who has the most favourable period for fructification of this ambition to become the Prime Minister of India. But what is revealed from this analysis is that the competition for the PM’s chair will be among these four leaders in the next general elections. ******************** END*********************
