ajirao Ballal was born as the first son of Balaji Vishwanath Bhat, a Chitpawan Konkanstha Brahmin Peshwa. History indicates that he was born in the region around Pune-Satara, probably at Saswad. Historical data indicates that he was born at daybreak on the full moon day of Bhadrapada month (of Hindu Lunar calendar) of Shaka 1622. Which turns out to be 18th August 1700. Exact time of birth is required to cast a birth chart. However, history only states that he was born at daybreak on the full moon day of Bhadrapada lunar month. Accordingly this horoscope was created; but it tallies a great deal with the life of Bajirao. With this basic information, let us attempt to create the horoscope by calculating the planetary positions. It is the Tercentenary year of his birth. Hence, I have endeavored to prepare this horoscope on this occasion.
Vyasa has named Pluto as ‘Tivra’.82 degrees. Rahu 3-0.Planetary Positions T he planetary positions on 18 August 2000. Hence 300 years ago Jupiter was on 300. Over the period of 300 years. Thus the planet was on 344. It is a full moon day. the Sun has receded by 4. Sun 4-1-29-36. Hence I am using the name ‘Shweta’ for ‘Hershel’ or ‘Uranus’. Pluto 7-16 According to the modern astronomy. Bajirao‟s natal or birth chart is as below- .7 degrees.01 years. Hence. Hence on 18/08/1700. hence Rahu was on 136.863013 years.4544832 years to complete one rotation.573 degrees. Thus moon‟s position was 305 degrees. hence Saturn was on 329. Shweta completes one rotation in 84. Minutes and Seconds are given in sequence. Rahu takes 18. Saturn 1-6-32. Uranus 9-24. the Sun recedes one degree due to the precession of equinoxes.58 degrees. Moon 11-3-7-32. Thus 300 years ago. Sun‟s position as on 18/08/2000 is 121.78 years for one rotation.88089 years to complete one rotation. Sage Vyasa named Neptune as ‘Shyam’ in the Mahabharata. Sage Vyasa has named Uranus as ‘Shweta’ (for more information please read my book „Swayambhu‟).Rashi. Mars takes 1. Ketu 9-0-24.66 degrees.16 degrees. Based on the above calculations. Saturn takes 29. which is the position of Sun at the time of Bajirao‟s birth. „Shyam‟ takes 164. Jupiter completes one rotation in 11.24.Venus 4-19. Mars 3-17.5 degrees. at sunrise is as follows . Adding 4. Neptune 9-10. Degrees.37 degrees or in Capricorn at 17 degrees.4 degrees. Jupiter 1-14-32. The angular separation between the Sun and the Moon on a full moon day is 180 degrees.5 degrees. it was 88.5992 years to complete one rotation. Mars was at 287. Pluto was on 150. Pluto takes 248 years for one rotation. Mercury 3-40. every 72 years.16 it is 125.

British did not accept the change suggested by Gregory immediately. his date of birth could be 29 August 1700. Let us check the „tithi‟ of 18-08-1700. instead of 3rd September. After 4th October. which is 297 years ago. This is to be divided by the number of days of a lunar year i. Dates are imaginary. 18-08-1997 was a full-moon day in the month of Shravan. It does not affect the prediction.96 days. That implies 11. Why does this discrepancy of 11 days occur? It is due to the shift of dates made by Pope Gregory during 1582 to adjust the seasons. Most likely. Bhadrapada Shuddha Tritiya. the date should be 5th. so we must believe in the „tithi‟. so that there may be mistakes. Readers must take a note of that there cannot be any mistake in the Tithi.? Accordingly. Based on that somebody related it to a date. thus 297 years implies 108479.25. which was not correct. because his mother Radhabai must have said that Bajirao was born on the full moon day of Bhadrapada lunar month. . they accepted and after 2nd September 1752. The Western calendar was not used in India. Hence Radhabai quoting a date was impossible. In my opinion. Therefore it is not wise to use the date. Tithi is not imaginary. He eliminated 11 days.e.25 days. 354. Tithi is evident from the Moon. Deduct two days for leap years since two centuries have gone past. since all other planets remain as discussed above. 18 August 1700 was not a full-moon day of Bhadrapada month. Bajirao‟s birth date is 18th August 1700 which is after 1582 and prior to 1752. they labeled the date 14th September 1752. then. Although.36696. to get 108477.53058. It is intelligent to use the Tithi of Hindu calendar. deducting it we get 11.25 days.43 days. moon was in sign Virgo or in the second house of Bajirao‟s birth chart.Note: A s per my calculations. 18 August 1700 was the third day after new moon day. Hence there was confusion in English calendar. Considering the solar year has 365. Thus 18th August +11 days=29 August 1700 was the day when it was full moon day of Bhadrapada. The remainder of the division is 40.43 days were left after full moon day. eventually. One lunar month is 29. he must be born in Bhadrapada Pournima (full moon day). but he took 15th of October 1582.
