The election commission of India is going to conduct polls for Bihar legislative assembly’s 243 seats during the coming months of October and November. The ruling JDU and BJP do not want to postpone the elections for the fear of public anger which may increase because of the serious outbreak of corona virus epidemic, destructive flood and growing economic crisis resulting into job losses. The Nitish Kumar’s JDU is banking on his leader’s clean image, political goodwill and proven track record as chief minister of the state of 15 long years. The horoscope of Nitish Kumar suggest that he can get reelected again as the chief minister of the state making a record but these assembly polls will be a nail biting contest. The horoscope of RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav is also under auspicious Vimshottari dasha which will make him a very strong leader of opposition.
JDU’s horoscope is stronger than RJD
Nitish Kumar has formed Janatal Dal United (JDU) along with Sharad Yadav and late George Fernandes on 30 October 2003 in Patna, Bihar . In the horoscope of JDU the Capricorn lagan is rising with Mars in Aquarius, Rahu in Aries, Saturn in Gemini, Jupiter in Leo, Ketu-Mercury-Sun conjunction in Libra, Venus in Scorpio and Moon in Sagittarius. The JDU got birth with dasha balance of Venus which gave them power in the state very soon in the assembly elections in November 2005. Venus dasha run till November 2016 and now they are under Sun-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari. Sun and Mercury are in the 10th house of power which are likely to give them an advantage during assembly elections.
On the other hand Lalu Yadav’s RJD has relatively weak horoscope. Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) was formed on 5 July 1997 when Virgo lagna was rising. Mars is in Virgo, Jupiter is in Capricorn, Ketu in Aquarius, Saturn in Pisces, Sun and Moon are in Gemini, Venus and Mercury are in Cancer and Rahu is in Leo. The RJD were born with balance dasha of Jupiter which is in the 5th house in Raja Yoga as it is in mutual aspect with lagna lord Mercury and 9th lord Venus. But in Jupiter-Rahu dasha in Vimshottari this party lost power in assembly elections in 2005. Rahu is in the 12th house of losses. Now party is in Saturn maha dasha which is in the 7th house in mutual aspect with 8th lord Mars. The period of Saturn-Mars in Vimshottari is running which do not give any Raja Yoga for Virgo lagna. Party supremo Lalu Yadav or some other senior leaders may face serious health issues as per this bad dasha in the horoscope of RJD.
Horoscope of Tejashwi Yadav
9 November 1989, 12:30 hours at Patna, Bihar
Longitude: 85 E 07’ and Latitude 25 N 36’
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Jupiter 6 years 8 months 23 days
The Makar lagna horoscope of Tejashwi Yadav appears to be promising as it has a Raja Yoga of lagna lord Saturn in conjunction with 5th and 10th lord Venus. Since this Raja Yoga is forming in the 12th house and he also have a ‘Kemadruma Moon’ so there is going to be an initial struggle in his career. The 9th lord Mercury is in the 10th house with 4th and 11th lord Mars showing powerful political status his parents enjoyed as the chief ministers of Bihar. His father Lalu Prasad Yadav and mother Rabri Devi were both former CM’s of the state. In Navamsa we have a very strong conjunction of Sun and Mercury in the 9th house of father. But then in the birth chart 8th lord Sun is conjoined with 9th lord Mercury showing controversial career of his father who is now in jail after being convicted in fodder scam cases.
In the horoscope of Tejashwi the 5th lord (education) falls in the 12th house which didn’t gave him any interest into studies. The 3rd lord Jupiter is in the 6th house reflect his interest in sports in initial years. He has played cricket at state level for Bihar.
Early rise of Tejashwi Yadav in Mercury dasha
It is the maha Dasha of Mercury that brought Tejashwi Yadav in the limelight of national politics during the assembly elections of Bihar in year 2015. At that time his party RJD was in alliance with Nitish Kumar and they had given a thrashing defeat to the NDA (national democratic alliance) led by BJP. It was Mercury-Mercury Dasha in Vimshottari (August 2015 to December 2017) in the horoscope of Tejashwi Yadav at that time when he become the deputy chief minister of Bihar at the young age of 25 only. Mercury as the 9th lord is in the 10th house of power but since it is conjoined with 8th lord Sun and is getting an aspect of the 12th lord Jupiter so he also has to lost his position of Deputy CM in July 2017 in a surprise manner when Nitish Kumar joined hand with the BJP again. Noticeable point here is that Mercury is deep combust by 8th lord Sun which is not good. But since it is very strong in Dashamasha where it is in good Raja Yoga in the ascendant so Tejashwi Yadav was able to hold his party together in the absence of his father Lalu Yadav.
Tejashwi Yadav’s star shine in Bihar assembly polls
Now at the time of Bihar assembly elections Tejashwi Yadav will be under Mercury-Venus Dasha in Vimshottari (December 2018 to October 2021). Mercury and Venus are both Karaka for Makar lagna native as per Sage Parashara. But the sub period lord Venus is falling in the 12th house of losses in birth chart and also in the Navamsha , but since it is exalted in the Dasmhasa so Tejsahwi’s career will shine during this period. Assembly elections will be held during Mercury-Venus-Saturn from 21 October 2020 to 2 April 2021 period. The anter dasha and Pratyanter dasha lord Venus and Saturn respectively are in the Raja Yoga but they are in the 12th house which is a weakness here. Tejashwi is also undergoing a ‘Sadhe-Sati’ period and his Moon is in Kemadruma yoga as there is no planet on either side of it. So despite giving a tough fight to the JDU-BJP ruling alliance he may narrowly miss the chance of getting a historic victory.
But in personal life the dasha of Mercury-Venus for Tejashwi Yadav shows marriage in next 1.5 years. The transit of Saturn from Capricorn over his Janma lagna also indicate it. Jupiter’s transit from Capricorn and Aquarius is auspicious to get him marry in coming two years.
Annual horoscope of Tejashwi Yadav for completed year 31
In the annual horoscope of Tejashwi Yadav the Makar lagna is rising which is same as his Janma lagna so it is called ‘Dwi-Janma lagna’ which indicate a sensitive period for him. The Muntha falls in the 8th house with Moon which is not auspicious for him. The 10th lord Venus is debliteated in the annual horoscope. The 10th house has debliteated Sun with 6th and 9th lord Mercury. They are under the aspect of lagna lord Saturn showing some moderate success but not any big glory.
In Yogini Dasha Tejashwi Yadav is under Dhanya (Jupiter) period. Jupiter is the lord of 12th house in the 6th showing great fight during its period of Yogini Dasa. But since Jupiter is in enemy sign and is in the 8th house in Navamsha so he may have to content with the post of opposition leader only even after a great election contest.

Upheavals in Nitish Kumar’s political career during his Rahu maha dasha
In Rahu-Rahu Dasha in Vimshottari he resigned from the post of CM in May 2014 after his party performed poorly in the general elections in 2014. He made Jitan Ram Manjhi CM but later he again came back to the helm of affairs in February 2015 during his Rahu-Jupiter period when there was rift in the party. In the anter dasha of Jupiter he won the Bihar assembly polls in November 2015 this time with RJD led by Tejashwi Yadav as his new partner. Jupiter as the 10th lord is in the 9th house of power and it is also the lord of Navamsha and Dashamsha lagan.
But in July 2017 Nitish Kumar broke up with Tejashwi Yadav, the deputy chief minister, and joined the hands with BJP to form the government. It was enigmatic Rahu-Saturn Dasha in Vimshottari in his chart. Notice here that Rahu and Saturn are in the 6/8 position in his birth chart. Now in Rahu-Mercury Dasha in Vimshottari (October 2019 to May 2022) he will be contesting to become the chief minister again with BJP as his party’s major alliance partner. Mercury the anter dasha lord is in the 9th house from the lagna and in Navamsha it is in the 10th house of power. In Dashamasha Rahu and Mercury are associated with Kendra lord Jupiter at favourable 5/11 axis which is good for him.

The 9th house rising in the annual horoscope is highly auspicious. Muntha is in the 2nd house and get the aspect of 10th lord Mars.

In Yogini Dasa Nitish Kumar is under Bhramari Dasha who’s lord is Mars which is favorable for him. The Bhramari period will be running till April 2021 after which Bhadrika to follow which is ruled by Mercury. In the horoscope of Nitish Kumar Mars is in the 10th house of power and in Dashamasha it is exalted. So Bhramari Dasha is good for Nitish Kumar which will allow him to get reelected as the Chief Minister of Bihar.
However, the transiting Saturn and Jupiter in the 8th house from his Janma lagna are indicating a surprise upheavals for him in next year. He can broke away from the NDA again in 2021 because of this unfavourable transit of Saturn-Jupiter from his 8th house of the lagna.
