A ‘Neecha-Bhanga’ Raja Yoga can give a native surprise rise from a very adverse position provided his lagna and Moon is strong. For the “Neecha-Bhanga” and “Veepreet Raja Yogas” to give their beneficial results this is a precondition. The lagna, lagna lord, Moon and Moon sign lord should be strong in a horoscope. The DK Shivakumar’s case is a classical example of ‘Neecha-Bhanga’ Raja Yoga. DK Shivakumar is a famous Congress leader from Karnataka state where he is known as ‘giant killer’ , ‘trouble-shooter’ and ‘money-chest’ of the party. He defeated HD Devegoda in 1989 assembly elections and in 1999 he won the elections from same constituency Sathanur by getting better of HD Kumaraswamy. He is one of the richest politician of Karnataka state with a declared total assets of 840 crores (8400 million). In the Mesha (Aries) lagna horoscope of DK Shivkumar the lagna lord Mars is in its ‘Neecha’ Rashi Cancer in the 4th house in mutual aspect with Jupiter who is also in its ‘Neecha’ Rashi in its 10th house of power along with Saturn in its own sign.
As per a Tamil classical text if two debilitated (Neecha) planets aspect each other then they give good results. On the contrary if two exalted planets in mutual aspect with each other tend to give bad results in the first half of their dashas. Dr. B.V. Raman has mention this as ‘Uccha Bhanga’ in his book ‘A Catechism of Astrology’ . DK Shivakumar is under deep political crisis these days as recently on the 4th of September he was sentenced for 13 days custody to Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the case of money laundering. This arrest of DK Shivakumar has created an uncertainty over his political career as the charges of money laundering and corruption can either reduce his influence or it can catapult his political clout if he emerge clean out of this case to which he is calling a ‘political vendetta’ of the BJP. The arrest of DK Shivakumar is a big setback for the Congress party who after the loss in general elections in 2019 is under disastrous situation. Many of the Congress leaders across the country are either joining the BJP or they are facing the wrath of investigating agencies like that happen in case of P.Chidambaram and now with DK Shivakumar. I have earlier discuss the horoscope of Mr. P. Chidambaram now let us study the horoscope of Mr. DK Shivakumar.

Early Rise and Fame in Karnataka Politics for DK Shivakumar
In 1985 at the age of just 23 years DK Shivakumar took on HD Deve Gowda who was once in the Congress party but earlier in 1979 moved into Janata Dal. DK shivakumar lost this assembly election with a very narrow margin of 15,000 votes. It was the Rahu-Jupiter dasha in Vimshottari in the horoscope of DK Shivakumar which gave him fame in local politics. Rahu-Jupiter being in 6/8 position in Rashi and in the 2/12 position in Navamsha gave him defeat but it was actually an achievement for young Shivakumar who was just 23 only. Later in 1989 he defeated HD Deve Gowada to create a sensation in the Karnataka politics then. It was Rahu-Mercury in the horoscope of DK Shivakumar in Vimshottari. Mercury is in the 10th house from Dasha lord Rahu.
Since his famous election victory of 1989 DK Shivakumar never look back. He rose to great heights in the maha dasha of Rahu which run till January 1999 and then the Jupiter maha dasha till January 2015 made him the firefighter of Congress party in the state. He became minister in the cabinet of Congress chief ministers S.Bangarappa and SM Krishna. He was once regarded as the future chief minister of Karnataka. But then came Siddaramaiah who had joined Congress in 2005 from JDS, who led the party to victory into state assembly elections in 2013. DK Shivakumar was the minister of power in Siddaramaiah cabinet.
DK Shivakumar as trouble shooter for Congress
In year 2001 DK Shivakumar hosted 21 Maharashtra MLA’s in a resort when then Congress government in the state was in crisis. In Maharashtra the coalition of Congress and NCP was in trouble then. Vilasrao Deshmukh then chief minister of Maharashtra from Congress sought the help from SM Krishna who assigned the duty to Shivakumar for hosting Congress MLA’s in his resort. The crucial turning points in Shivakumar’s career came in 2017 when he became instrumental in defying the poaching attempts of BJP on the Gujarat MLA’s by keeping them under his custody. It was for the contest of a Raja-Sabha elections in which Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s close aid Ahmed Patel’s seat was in line. From there DK Shivakumar came into direct political scuffle with BJP president Amit Shah.
It was Saturn-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari ( January 2015 to January 2018) in the horoscope of DK Shivakumar when he earned big name by outmaneuvering the political strategy of BJP chief Amit Shah during the Raja Sabha seat contest in Gujarat. But everyone knew it then that a time when come when DK Shivakumar will pay price for taking head-on with Amit Shah. The Income tax department started opening corruption cases of DK Shivakumar. He had to face IT raids in 2017 and 2018. The transiting Saturn had then came in the 8th house of his natal Moon to give him mental agony.
But then Shivakumar born under Aries lagna, which symbolizes by a ram, who likes to take his enemy head-on at front was not ready to bend down. He took on the might of Amit Shah again in 2018 when Congress-JDS coalition came into power in May 2018. It was Shivakumar who was instrumental in keeping party MLA’s together but he failed in July 2019 when the coalition government collapse after a revolt in both parties. DK Shivakumar running under Saturn-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari ( from January 2018 to September 2020) has to face such difficulties as both Saturn and Mercury are functional malefic planets for his Aries lagna chart.
What is the future of DK Shivakumar ?
It is Saturn-Mercury-Rahu ( 20 July 2019 to 15 December 2019) dasha in Vimshottari when DK Shivakumar has been arrested under money laundering and corruption charges. Since Saturn is involve in good ‘Neecha-Bhanga’ Raja Yoga so we can hope that it will revive his political career. The sub period lord Mercury is with 4th lord Moon and 5th lord Sun which is a saving grace. The aspect of 9th lord Jupiter over the sub period lord Mercury can protest Shivakumar from judicial punishment. He can get a bail from the apex court very soon. Next year when transiting Saturn will come into Capricorn sign at his 10th house of career DK Shivakumar is likely to get more relief from the court cases he is facing at present. DK Shivakumar is at 57 years of age which is not much for an Indian politician. He has a long Saturn maha dasha under his disposal which can bring him luck and rise in political career in coming years. Saturn is very strong in his horoscope in Rashi, Navamsha and Dashamsha chart which indicate a long and successful political career for DK Shivakumar in coming years.
