We have some old issues of The Jyotish Digest available for download for our members. Thank you so much for supporting the cause of Sri Jagannath Center in bringing out this quarterly magazine.
We also take this opportunity to thank Google for giving a free GSuite for Sri Jagannath Center
We needed a website to organise the learning, or at least to have all those tiny bits of lessons and workshops at one place – that was the motive behind the birth of www.SoHamsa.IN which is different from www.SoHamsa.COM as the latter is for paid professional courses, announcements etc.
Saying as much, we will not take more of your time and announce that the following coursea are now fully online, and are FREE
Janata Dal is an Indian political party which was formed through the merger of Janata Party factions, the Lok Dal, Congress(S), and the Jan Morcha led by V. P. Singh on 11 October 1988 on the birth anniversary of Jayaprakash Narayan. The Janata Dal was formed on the 11 October 1988 at 1:18′ PM IST at Bangalore, India. the Rasi Chart is placed alongside. Capricorn rises (Lagna) showing its primary ideology centered around a poverty related theme of the upliftment of the poor and weaker sections of society. Rahu in the second house shows that its primary membership (family-2nd house) shall consist of people cutting across all religions and shall have a strong Minority/Muslim support.
The tenth house shows the leadership and the tenth lord Venus in the 8th house shows that the leaders will be people who have sacrificed considerably and suffered many hardships in life. The Combination of Venus with Ketu and Saturn in trines does indicate that some of them shall be very determined and idealistic persons. Since the expansive Jupiter is placed in the fifth house and also in the tenth house from Leo (Paka Lagna for the leaders), this party shall offer the maximum opportunity for its leaders to become Prime Ministers and it is a matter of fact that although the Janata Dal or its previous incarnation as Janata Party had the smallest tenures of governance, the largest number of Prime Ministers came from this party.
Their stints were short of about a year each as promised by Lagna Lord Saturn. Thus, it is evident that whenever Janata Dal/party came to power, the first Prime Minister was always replaced by another. This is indicated by the 8th house placement of the 10th Lord showing Duryoga within the period of power itself. The second leader is indicated by Mars and the coming of Mars will indicate the loss of power by the Party itself in the elections that would follow as Mars is very inimical to Saturn and has Papargala on it. This is further confirmed by the 8th house placement of the Mars and Moon in the Navamsa Chart.
However the 8th house position does not auger well for their permanent association and since the A5 (Mantrapada) is also in Leo with Venus, these leadership maybe changed frequently. A slogan commonly used for the Janata Dal is “दल बदल बदल के दलदल कर दिया (dal badal badal ke dal dal kar diya)” i.e. by switching from one party to another and by forming so many subsidiary and affiliated parties, the entire political scenario of the JD has become very muddy (& dirty by implication).
The ninth house placement of the Sun, Moon and Mercury is the greatest fortune of the party showing that alliances (7th Lord Moon) will always be very favorable (conjoins 9th Lord) for acquiring political power (Mercury in exaltation), but at the cost of the alliance partner (i.e. the alliance partner shall lose popularity like the weak Moon in this chart). The placement of the Moon in the 8th house under eclipse by Ketu and Mars in the Navamsa threatens the political existence of its partners in the places where it shall come to power with such alliances.
The coming of power or rise in politics is seen from the fifth house and Lagna. Lagna Lord Saturn is in Sagittarius owned by Jupiter in the fifth house. Thus Jupiter holds the key to political ascendancy. ever since its inception, the antardasa of Jupiter has come only once from June 1995 to October 1997 during which period it enjoyed political power (excluding its prior incarnation as the Janata party).
This party has had several splits. Amongst the larger splinter groups include the Rashtriya Janata Dal (which ruled the state of Bihar), Samajwadi Party (ruling the state of Uttar Pradesh), Biju Janata Dal (governing Odisha), Janata Dal (Secular) (which ruled the state of Karnataka) and the Janata Dal (United), (currently ruling Bihar and whose leader George Fernandes was the former Defense Minister of India) and Samajwadi Janta Party (R) headed by Chandra Shekhar is the only faction having some national image. Several smaller splinter groups also exist, including Lok Janshakti Party and Janata Party. The Janata Dal finally collapsed with multiple splinter groups moving out particularly the formation of JD(U) on 30 October 2003… in Rahu dasha Ketu antardasha. It was a typical Rahu-Ketu thing with the head separating from the body.
Students of astrology may wonder as to why it did not rise again in Jupiter dasha after 2010. Thats because once apamrityu (premature death) has occured in Rahu-Ketu, then it shows the functioning of the Sudarshan Chakra of Vishnu and it will require more than just another dasha to bring this back to life. That hints at the power of Venus to give the mrityunjaya. Its strange that it chose a chakra symbol in green and thats exactly what cut its head off…
The Vajpayee Government was sworn in on Thursday March 19, 1998 at 9:32’: 33’’ AM IST at New Delhi . The Muhurat for the swearing in seems to have been chosen very well, as it is a quadrant from both the Lagna and Dasamsa Lagna. In fact, it is the same sign as occupied by the seventh lord Venus in the Dasamsa Chart and the Pratyantar dasa of Sri Vajpayee was that of Venus at that time.
The ascendant lord in the ninth house shows that the Government will be establishing Dharma (ethical methods of working). Let us examine the longevity of the Chart as per canons on this subject – Method of Three Pairs.
Thus, the two sutras indicating long life shall dominate. Further, if the Moon is in the first or the seventh house, the longevity shall be determined by the Moon & Saturn pair to show long life. The Atmakaraka is Saturn and it is not placed in the 1st, 3rd, 7th or 9th house and Vipareeta Ayur yoga is not applicable to the chart. The Maximum longevity of the Lok Sabha is 5 years and each Shoola Dasa shall be for a period of 5 months. The Shoola dasa will begin from Scorpio in the seventh house, as it is stronger than the ascendant. The Purna Ayur Khand is from the ninth Shoola dasa of Cancer to the twelfth Shoola Dasa of Libra (i.e. 40 months to 60 Months longevity). Based on the above, we may predict the following: –
The antardasa of Rahu in the dasa of Jupiter in the natal chart of Sri Vajpayee is between 25 June 1998 to 18 November 2000. Rahu in the eighth house from the ascendant and the Atmakaraka are not a good placement as it generates a dustamarana yoga. Rahu is also in exaltation but is very well placed in trines to Jupiter in the fifth house in the Navamsa chart in its own sign. Secondly, this exalted Rahu is in the tenth house from the Arudha Lagna. This will indicate success in all works especially international affairs and will give pilgrimages, divine deeds etc. Rahu placed in the twelfth house in the Dasamsa shows secret enemies who will plot against him and also shows the Hon’ble PM as a God fearing and trusting soul. Thus, while difficulties are indicated, so is success indicated. The security of the PM should be strengthened and he should beware against the plotters. Regular recitation of the Maha Mrutyunjaya Japa is the best remedy.
In any case, the seeming differences between the readings of the Birth Chart and Swearing in chart are can be reconciled based on the teachings in Prasna Marga. ‘If the Prasna chart shows good results while the natal chart shows bad results, attribute the good results to the good karma of the individual in the present birth. Instead, if the Prasna chart shows bad results while the birth chart shows good results, attribute it to the bad karma of the individual in the present birth’. Without the backing of good karma, it is impossible for the individuals to initiate the important works in the Muhurat ordained by the astrologers. Even Sri Ram could not be crowned in the predetermined Muhurat as Bhagawan had taken the human form to wash the curse of Sri Narada. Thus, if in the present context, the Muhurat shows long life for the Government it can only be attributed to the good karma of Sri Vajpayeeji in the present birth.
Since the Purna Ayus of the Chart is for 5 years, the Narayana dasa period equivalent for each sign gained by a planet is 15 days instead of 1 year. Thus, the Narayana Dasa of the Swearing-in chart is as follows: –
|Dasa||Signs gained by lord||Period in Days||From||To|
|Scorpio||4 (Mars 5-1)||60 = 2 months||19 Mar 1998||19 May 1998|
|Gemini||8 (Merc 10-1-1 Debility)||120 = 4 months||19 May 1998||19 Sept 1998|
|Capricorn||10 (Sat 11-1)||150 = 5 months||19 Sept 1998||19 Feb 1999|
|Leo||5 (Sun 6-1)||75 = 2 ½ months||19 Feb 1999||4 May 1999|
|Pisces||1 (Jup 2-1)||15||4 May 1999||19 May 1999|
|Libra||3 (Ven 4-1)||45 = 1 ½ months||19 May 1999||4 July 1999|
|Taurus||8 (Ven 9-1)||120 = 4 months||4 July 1999||4 Nov 1999|
|Sagittarius||2 (Jup 3-1)||30 = 1 month||4 Nov 1999||4 Dec 1999|
|Cancer||7 (Moon 9-1-1 Debility)||105 = 3 ½ month||4 Dec 1999||19 Mar 2000|
|Aquarius||11 (Sat 12-1)||165 = 5 ½ month||19 Mar 2000||4 Sept 2000|
|Virgo||5 (Merc 7-1-1 Debility)||75 = 2 ½ month||4 Sept 2000||19 Nov 2000|
|Aries||11 (Mars 12-1)||165 = 5 ½ month||19 Nov 2000||4 May 2001|
|Scorpio||8 (12-4 Second cycle)||120 = 4 months||4 May 2001||4 Sept 2001|
|Gemini||4 (12-8 second cycle)||60 = 2 months||4 Sept 2001||4 Nov 2001|
|Capricorn||2 (12-10 second cycle)||30 = 1 month||4 Nov 2001||4 Dec 2001|
|Leo||7 (12-5)||105 = 3 ½ month||4 Dec 2001||19 Mar 2002|
The results of the Narayana Dasa are to be ordained in the same manner as done for other Rasi dasa. Some of the readings of the Narayana dasa (Table 1).
Readers will see my optimism in the lines above and I had expected that the Vajpayee Government would cross the first two dangers and would stay till 2002. However, my optimism was proved incorrect and the Government fell in the most dangerous period (19 Jan 1999 to 19 June 1999). This dangerous period had been fore-warned and in spite of good advise, the ill fated event happened. The Narayana dasa are also indicated below and it happened in the Narayana Dasa of Rahu in Leo. Unfortunately, my warning went unheeded.
Readers will see the accuracy with which the other events had been predicted using NARAYANA DASA like:
