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:
The heart is a four- chambered Electro-muscular pump designed to circulate the blood around the whole body continuously, without even a pause, till the end of life. Infect, it is a pair of pumps placed side by side. The heart is positioned in the chest just over the lower side of the left loave of the lungs.
The first pump situated on the right side of the heart. This pump recovers blood from the body through the veins and fills right ventricle of the heart and then pumps the blood to lungs. The second pump on the left recovers purified blood back from the lungs and fills the left ventricle of the heart and then pumps the blood to the body. Four valves control these functions. The blood supply to the heart muscle (the myocardium) itself is provided by special arteries, called coronary arteries.
The function of the heart is controlled and regulated by electrical impulses, originating in the sinus node, a structure embedded in the heart muscle. Nearly 72 impulses are passed every minute through myocardium, this generates equal number of heartbeats. In this process, heart muscle develops pressure (blood-pressure) which is responsible for the flow of blood in the body.
The nature has created another mechanical pumps (two in number) which are situated in each of the calf muscles of the legs. These pumping systems is only operative when a person is walking, running or performing some specific exercises and help the heart in accelerating the flow of blood supply in the body. These pumps do not operate when body is in resting mode. This is the broad basis on which heart helps to maintain the circulation of blood in the body.
Type of main diseases of heart
This is a broad and layman’s view about the possible causes of heart disease. This may help to identify astrological reasons for specific heart diseases in broader prospective.
1.significators for heart (positive factors)
(a) The Fourth House: The fourth house indicates the heart of the native. Mind is also the seat of the fourth house. Heart and mind are very closely associated with each other.
(b) lord of the fourth house: The second important significator of the heart is the Lord of fourth house. This is in accordance with the basic principal of predictive astrology.
(c) moon: The Moon is Natural ruler as well as significator of fourth house. Moon is also significator of mind , thus Moon becomes important significator of the heart.
(d) Sign Cancer: Moon is the ruler of sign Cancer. This sign plays important role as significator of heart.
(e) Nakshatra anuradha: Anuradha is Heart of the kalapurusha (Lord Vishnu). Thus this Nakshatra acts as significator of Heart.
2. Significators for the disease of heart (negative factors)
a) The sun: Sun is the significator of the heart disease. When malefic influences operate on the Sun, heart diseases may be indicated. This also depends on other adverse indications such as malefic Dasas and transits. This is most important factor for the disease of the heart.
b) sign leo: Sun being its natural associate, any affliction to this sign may promote heart disease.
c) The Fifth house: The fifth house is the natural seat of sign Leo and its Lord Sun. Affliction to this house becomes a strong factor in promoting heart disease, further, this is the house of intellect which has a direct bearing on the well being of the heart muscle as well as its functioning. On account of this reason, some authorities have even advocated that real seat of heart is fifth house in comparison with fourth house. However, as heart is more akin to watery element (then fire), we feel it is more appropriate that forth house should be considered the prime seat of the heart. The fifth house either help in the growth and well being of the heart or if fifth house is afflicted it promotes the disease of the heart. The fifth house is a Marka house for heart muscle being second house from fourth house.
d) The Lord of the Fifth House: -For reasons explained in Sl.no. C above, the Lord of the fifth house acts as a Marka to heart muscle as well as if afflicted promotes heart disease.
3. Secondary significators for the disease of the heart (secondary Negative actors)
(A) 2nd drekkana: In case, ascendant falls in the 2nd Drekkana of the rising sign, the fifth and the ninth houses in rashi chart become the indicator of Right and left sides of the heart muscle respectively. In that case, any affliction to these houses indicates the strong possibility of heart disease depending upon the type of malefic influences operating on these houses.
(B) sign aquarius: In chapter I, sloka 8 of BrihatJatak, Varah Mihira identified Aquarius as “hirdyaroga”. The placement of sun in this sign does not augur well for heart.
(C) The Eleventh House: Eleventh House is the natural seat of sign Aquarius. This is the house of fulfilment of desire, which has a strong bearing both on mind and Intellect. The two Calf-muscles of both legs are also signified by eleventh house and sign Aquarius. Thus, this house becomes one of the strong significator for heart disease. This house is eighth from the forth house. Any affliction to the Fifth and eleventh house axis may cause heart disease.
(D) Nakshatra magha (Leo 0 degree – 13 degree 20’) (Yavan jatak): An afflicted planet in this Nakshatra may cause sudden shock and pollution to the heart. Kept is the ruler of this Nakshatra and triggers accidents and sudden events.
(E) Nakshatra Purva Phalguni (Leo 13 degree 20’ to 26 degree 40’) (Yavan jatak): This star has a strong signification over heart and generates swelling of heart muscles.
(F) dhanista – Last two charan (Aquarius 0 degree – 6 degree 40’): This star may trigger sudden failure of heart and carries the influence of sign Aquarius and Mars.
(G) shatavhisha (AQUARIUS 6 degree 40’ – 20 degree): This star rules over Electricity, which is vital for proper and regular functioning of the heart. Both Rahu and Hershel rule over Electricity and are the co-rulers of sign Aquarius. This star rules Rheumatic heart disease, high blood pressure, palpitation and other mall-functioning in the heart on account of its electrical system. Both Rahu and Hershel play vital Role for such problems in the heart.
(H) Poorva-Bhadarpad-First three Quarters: (Aquarius 20 degree to 30 degree) This rules over the irregularities in function, swelling and dilation of heart muscle. The Jupiter is the ruler of this star and represents expansion, swelling, dilation etc when afflicted.
These are indications for strong and healthy heart.
1. In case Fourth house, its Lord, its Karka Moon, sign Cancer and Nakshatra Anuradha are in auspicious influence, the heart would be strong and would resist any indications and yoga (s) which may exist in the birth chart for the disease of heart. These are summarised as under:
(A) If Moon and Lord of the fourth house are:Heart Disease and Its Causes
i. In their Exaltation, Mooltrikona and own rashi(s),
ii. Conjunct, hammed or/and aspected by benefic planets.
iii. Placed in good bhavas -kendra and trikona (it would be better if both from Ascendant and fourth house)
iv. Moving towards their exaltation sign.
v. Vargottama, exaltation or own Navmasas.
vi. With six or more bindus in their own Astak Vargas and more than 32 bindus in Sarva – Astakvarga.
vii. Dispositor of these planets are similarly in auspicious influence
viii. These planets have acquired requisite Shad-Bala and Vimshopak strength.
ix. Placed in auspicious Shashtiyamsa (60th part of the rashi).
x. Simultaneously, fourth Bhava and Cancer Rashi are occupied or aspected by benefics or by their own Lords. These Bhava and rashi should be hemmed by benefics.
On the contrary, the following factors will promote illness
2. If Moon and lord of forth house are:
(1) In their debilitation or enemy sign
(2) Placement in 6th, 8th or/and 12th house from Ascendant and fourth house.
(3) Hemmed by Malefics.
(4) Conjunction or aspect of melefics (Mars, Saturn,Rahu,Ketu and lords of 6th 8th and 12th house)
(5) Relationship (Sambandh) with the Lords of 6th, 8th and 12th Lords from fourth as well as ascendant.
(6) Melefics in 6,8 and 12, or 5 or 9th houses from fourth house.
(7) Relationship with significators of diseases of heart
(8) Placement of planets in debilitation, Enemy and malefic Navmasa or in the Navmasa of rashis falling in trik Bhavas.
(9) Planets with 3 or less Bindus in their own respective Astakvarga and 22 or less Bindus sarvastak -Vargas.
(10) Bhavas, their Lords and Karka do not have requisite Shad- Bala and Vimshopak Strength.
(11) Placed in inauspicious Shashtiyamsa
(12) Fourth house and Cancer Rashi are occupied, Aspected or hemmed by Malefics.
1) Affliction to SUN: this is by far the most important factor in causing cardiac illness.Affliction from Saturn causes palpitation and shivering of heart. Ketu causes pain the heart. Mars causes problem of blood circulation. Sun’s debilitation and relationship with 6,8thand 12th houses or their Lords promotes heart disease.
2) Affliction to fifth house and 11th house and their Lords
3) Affliction to sign Leo and Aquarius.
4) Affliction to Lagna and its Lord. – This also promotes diseases.
5) Affliction to fourth and fifth houses from Moon and Sun respectively.
6) In the main Dasa of a malefic planet, if antardasa lord is retrograde and situated in fifth house from Lagna or Sun, promotes Cardiac illness.
7) In the presence of sufficient affliction, the Dasa of planets associating with SUN, the 5th house, the 5th lord leads to Cardiac illness.
8) In the basic scheme, Lagna is the house of health, sixth is for disease, 8th for death, 2nd and 7th are Marka houses and 12th is the house of decay. The ninth house is for growth and 11th house for recovery. When we consider similar scheme from house of heart i.e. the fourth house, the fourth house is for health of the heart, Ninth house is for its disease, 11th is for its death, 3rd for decay, 5th and 10th act as its Marka, 12th for growth and 2nd house from Lagna is for recovery of heart from disease. This gives some interesting information with regard to heart disease. 9th. 11th, 12th and 2nd houses from Lagna are common in both schemes. Thus 9th house may promote growth of the whole body but at the cost of heart. Similarly 11th house may promote recovery of the body from other illnesses but may adversely harm the heart. 12th house may weaken the body but may contribute to the health of the heart. 2nd house may help from the recovery of heart from the of disease but may sometimes be fatal to the native on account other reasons. These are the contradictions which Doctors and native face in life in actual practice. The astrologer should be very careful while assessing the recovery of a particular organ of the body. If dasa of 2nd Lord is running, sometimes operation of the heart is successful, still 2nd house may prove Marka to the native on account of other reasons.
All these factors are to be properly weighed before reaching a prediction on the recovery of the Native from the illnesses. When main Karka’s of heart are strong and in good influence like fourth house, Moon, Lord of the fourth house, sign Cancer, and star Anuradha, the heart would be strong. If these factors are weak and aflicted, the heart would be weak. And liable to contact disease. On the other hand, if Karkas for promoting disease of the heart are in benefic influence, they would not promote disease. If these are afflicted, they would certainly promote disease even if heart Muscle and its function both are in healthy condition. Both the above factors, the Karkas of heart and its disease are afflicted, the disease in the heart would be of serious nature.
(I) Living things
(II) Non living things
In the case of fourth house, mother, animals, birds, Energy to work, breasts of woman, chest, heart, lungs, Arteries, diaphragm, portion of chest above diaphragm, alimentary canal, ribs, sternum (breast bone), Right nostril (Ist Drekhana is rising), Right side of the middle position of the body (II nd Drekhana is rising), Right thigh (iiird Drekhana is rising) are the things which are in living categories. The land, house, vehicle, farm equipment, garden, grains, crops, mines etc are things represented by fourth house, which are in non-living categories . (We are not discussing about abstract things of fourth house, like happiness, education, mind etc).
“Natural malafic planets situated in a house give harm to living things and give rise to non living things; while natural benefic planets do not have much sympathy with the non-living things and give rise to living things related to that house.”
Natural malefic even in its own sign will harm the living things. In case of fourth house, it may strengthen the heart yet produce decay and disease in the heart. Natural Malefics behave like a snake that lays eggs but eats almost all by itself.
(For information of the readers, the abstract things represented by the fourth house are ambition, Comfort, Faith in religion, mind ,allegation, fame, victory, secrets, education, artistic ability etc)
Yoga’s for Heart disease
Factors for protection against heart disease.
(1) Influence or aspects of Benefics on Karkas and absence of yoga’s indicating heart disease.
(2) Jupiter in Lagna and lagnesh is with strength.
(3) Strong Gaj-Kesari yoga in horoscope.
(4) Combination for Long life.
(5) Unafflicted sun in Gemini is said to provide protection against heart disease.
(6) When both Lagna and Moon are aspected by benefics.
