Happy Birthday Mr. Prime Minister - NAMO Horoscope Analysis
Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was born on 17th September 1950 at 11.17 hrs, at Mehsana (Gujarat). At the time of his birth Scorpio lagna was rising on the eastern horizon and planetary configuration was as such: Mars, Moon – Scorpio, Jupiter – Aquarius, Rahu – Pisces, Venus, Saturn – Leo, Sun, Mercury and Ketu in Virgo.
After becoming Prime Minister when Narendra Modi went to see his spiritual guru - Swami Atmasthanand Maharaj, head of the Ramakrishna Math and Mission order at Kolkata, who was unwell then this news came along with his visit that Narendra Modi was very keen to join the Math and work as a disciple when he was young but his request was turned down by his guru because destiny had something else in store for him.
Rajayogas of a politician:
Modi was born when Scorpio lagna was rising on the eastern horizon and Mars and Moon are placed in it. ‘Ruchak Panch Mahapurush Rajayoga’ is present in the chart due to the presence of Mars who owns this sign Scorpio. ‘Ruchak Panch Mahapurush Rajayoga’ alone is capable of lifting the person to dizzy heights in his chosen career, only if Mars has attained good power in vargas (divisional charts).
Rise of Powerful Rajayoga
‘Neech Bhanga Rajayoga’ is also present in the lagna. Debilitated Moon has conjoined Mars in the lagna giving rise to another powerful rajayoga which gives very strange and depressing results in the beginning. ‘Neech Bhanga rajayoga’ (cancellation of debiliated planet) comes under different categories of rajayogas. As the name itself is very expressive i.e. ‘Neech Bhanga rajayoga’. The literal meaning of this rajayoga is that a planet which has occupied a particular house is bound to give negative results in the beginning including negative publicity.
At one point of time in his life it looks like this person will not be able to come out from the miseries which he suffered due to unavoidable reasons. The whole world will become inimical towards him and try to subdue him as a non-entity if possible. A stage may come in the native’s life when he or she feels that now he cannot rise from the ashes. Right then this wonderful yoga starts operating and Neech Bhanga takes place and rajayoga starts working with full might. This is what is known in astrology – cancellation of debiliated planet.
Influence of Moon and Jupiter
‘Gajkesari Rajayoga’ is also present due to the presence of Moon in the lagna and Jupiter is in the 4th house. Moon is the lord of 9th house (Bhagya) and Jupiter is the lord of 5th house which represents previous birth punyas (good deeds). Both the planets – Moon and Jupiter are the lord of wonderful houses and are best friends among themselves. Luckily for both of them, Mars who forms – ‘Ruchak Panch Mahapurush Rajayoga’ has already cancelled the debiliation of Moon and has strengthened Jupiter by its fourth aspect.
The Moon is also waxing which has gained a lot of strength by being of Shukla Paksha. The houses involved in this whole gambit are lagna (self), fourth house (maximum satisfaction from this birth deeds and great position) and we have already explained 5th and 9th houses.
Saturn in Modi’s horoscope
Saturn’s placement in the 10th house indicates renunciation which was the reason Modi went thrice to his guru’s ashram to become a monk or yogi but every time the great guru turned him away perhaps knowing he has a bigger role to play in the life of many people of this country than getting enlightenment for himself. Had Saturn not been aspected by Jupiter from the fourth house and the horoscope did not have so many powerful rajayogas then Modi would have become a Mission Order. The mutual aspect between Jupiter and Saturn makes the person very popular and darling of the masses.
Mahadasa of Moon from 1st September 2011 to 31st August 2021:
As explained elsewhere, Moon is the most prominent planet for him because of various reasons which have been cited earlier. Right from the onset of Moon’s mahadasa from September 2011, Modi had swiftly shifted his focus from State to Centre politics. Despite of his opposition from within the party as well as other opposition parties were also creating all sorts of hurdles in his path. The power of rajayoga has brought him at centre with a thumping majority that itself is a record.
The Moon’s mahadasa still has a long way to go and Mars who is present in the lagna and mainly responsible for the ‘Neech Bhanga rajayoga’ has given all power to Moon. It has been experienced by us over the years if Moon gains strength then it becomes a game changer in one’s life that is what we are seeing in the case of Modi and many more things will unfold in the coming years.
Mars is debilitated in the navamsa chart but it does not matter till the Moon’s dasa is in operation because Mars has delegated all his power to Moon. How Mars dasa will give results from 2021 onward that is a matter of debate but so far Moon is there, nothing to worry about.
Varsh Kundali of year 2016 (From September 2016 to September 2017):
If the native’s horoscope gives the picture of his entire life then the Varsh Kundali which starts at the solar return gives clear indication of the life’s events which are going to unfold in the concerned year.
Modi’s Varsh Kundali reads as under:
Varsh Lagna – Libra, Mars, Saturn – Scorpio, Ketu – Aquarius, Moon – Pisces, Mercury, Rahu – Leo, Sun, Jupiter, Venus – Virgo and Muntha is in the 8th house.
School of thought in astrology analysis
There are different schools of thought which give special importance to varsh kundali because it is the deciding factor of events in a particular year. Traditionally the followers of Vedic astrology consider nine planets in the sky but in a varsh kundali a special planet is given maximum importance over all these navgrahas (nine planets) that is known as Muntha. Muntha is also called the mother of all nine planets in a varsh kundali and also known by many names including pivotal point in varsh kundali.
Muntha’s placement in a particular house in the yearly chart becomes the deciding factor for the entire year. It is very strange that out of twelve houses muntha gives negative results in almost six houses which means for muntha finding a good house in a varsh kundali is also a chance. Planets in the sky are seldom alone and generally they move in groups and involve each other with their aspect also.
For everybody, half of the planets in the sky are bad or malefic and the other half are good. In varsh kundali if the planet Muntha has occupied a negative house or influenced by negative planet then one needs to watch out those areas which are indicated by the placement of Muntha and other influences on it.
Coming back to the present kundali, Modi’s varsh lagna is Libra and Muntha has occupied the 8th house. This house is considered worst in varsh kundali and especially if Muntha is placed in it. The 8th house rashi is Taurus and lord of Muntha as well as lagna Libra is Venus which is debiliated and has occupied the 12th house along with Sun and Jupiter.
The 12th house is also considered a negative house. In this case two things are happening - lord of lagna as well as Muntha’s lord is Venus which is not very good. There is one good aspect of Jupiter which is also falling on Muntha which reduces the negative influence of Muntha to an extent. Unfortunately two malefic Mars and Saturn are also aspecting Muntha from the 2nd house.
Moon’s Mahadasha and Sub of Saturn
Coming back to the main kundali, Moon’s mahadasa and sub of Saturn are in operation till July 2017. As we understand, Moon is extremely powerful which indicates there will not be any damage to his status throughout this period. But when sub dasa and varsh kundali are negative then the pattern of results is bound to be erratic. In the main kundali, sub period of Saturn is active and Moon and Saturn are not very comfortable with each other.
Muntha’s placement in the 8th house and its lord Venus’s placement in the 12th house which happens to be the lord of varsh lagna strongly indicate that Modi should be aware of those people who are very close to him and may act wrongly against him. It is also not ruled out that the reputation of his government may be brought down by the misleading of some important person of the cabinet. Conspiracy may be hatched against him but will get exposed before it could do any damage. Some of his ideas will also be opposed heavily by the opposition.
If we compare both the kundalis then we come to this conclusion that Modi needs to change his plans and strategies from time to time. There could not be a feasible long term formula which can give desired results. State elections are around the corner early next year and these strategies may become handy tackling state politics. Our neighbours, Pakistan and China will also remain a bone of contention and finding a permanent solution of long term differences is not possible but if he uses quick fix strategies then they will produce fantastic results.
Minor health ailment could also be the cause of concern and especially mother’s health needs proper care and attention. Vedic astrology also suggests some remedial measures. If done at proper time then a lot of negativity can be warded off.
