Horoscope of Harish Rawat
27 April 2017, 12:30 hours at Almora, Uttarakhand
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Saturn 17 years 2 months 1 day
Harish Rawat was born in village Mohanari, near Chaunalia, Almora district , on April 27, 1947 to Rajendra Singh Rawat and Devaki Devi. He completed his B.A. and L.L.B from Lucknow University. As we know that for studying Lawthere must be a P.A.C (Position-Aspect-Conjunction) relation of the 5th, 6th, 9th and 10th houses/lords and the influence of planets Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. In the birth chart the sixth and ninth lord Jupiter is placed in the fifth house. The fifth and tenth lord Mars is in the ninth house receiving the aspect of Jupiter in turn. So the P.A.C of 5th, 6th , 9th and 10th houses/lords is very strong. You can also notice the influence of Saturn, Jupiter and Mars over this houses in the birth chart confirming the fact of his study of law. He studied law in the Vimshottari dasha of Mercury ( from 1964-1981) which is placed in the ninth house in the birth chart.
He first came into limelight in the national politics when he defeated the BJP veteran Dr. Murali Monahar Joshi in 1980’s general election , from the Almora Parliamentary constituency, which was dominated by Indira Gandhi’s presence and is know for his miraculous come back. It was his Mercury/Saturn (from September 1978 to May 1981) dasha in Vimshottari. See the position of seventh lord Saturn, seventh house is the house of public life, with lagan lord Moon. Saturn is also aspecting the tenth house in the birth chart and in Dashamsha it is strongly placed in the ninth house.
He was also reelected to the Lok Sabha in the general elections of 1984 and 1989. The maha dasha of Ketu (1981 to 1988) gave him study progress in his political career because of its present in the fifth house of minister-ship along with ninth lord Jupiter in the birth chart. Ketu is also strongly placed in the lagan of Dashamsha chart. But than came the maha-dasha of Venus (from May 1988 to May 2008) which saw ups and down in his career.
Venus is debilitated in the Navamsha and also in the conjunction of malefics like Saturn and Ketu. Venus is also the eighth lord of Dashamsha which gave him a downfall as in contesting on Congress ticket, Rawat lost the Almora Lok Sabha seat four times in a row – in 1991, 1996, 1998 and 1999 General elections. In 2004 Lok Sabha elections, Rawat’s wife Renuka Rawat tried her luck but the fate was the same. This was all because of the Venus maha-dasha he got (from May 1988 to May 2008) which is though exalted in the ninth house of birth chart but have just 22 Bindus in Ashatakavarga and also deblited in the Navamsah and having the lordship of eighth house in the Dashamsha had a bad effect on his political career.
However, the 2009 Lok Sabha elections came as a real surprise for political pundits when Harish Rawat, who originally belongs to Almora district in Kumaon, shifted base to Haridwar and won the election by over 1-lakh margin. This was all because of the magic of Sun maha dasha in Vimshottari (from May 2008 to May 2014) because of which Mr. Rawat got over 3.32 lakh votes to trounce BJP candidate Swami Yatindranand Giri (2 lakh votes) and Shahzad of the BSP (1.81 lakh votes). See the exalted Sun placed in the tenth house in the birth chart and it is also in the eleventh house of Dashamsah in his own sign Leo. The anterdasha was of YogaKaraka Mars (from Marcy 2009 to July 2009) which is strongly placed in the ninth house of Luck.
Since his miraculous victory in the general elections of 2009 he is the union minister of state and is in the good books of media, general public and his party president Smt. Sonia Gandhi because of his clean image and efficiency of managing ministerial work.
He became the chief minister of Uttarakhand on 1 February 2014 during the Vimshottari dasha of Sun-Venus. The anter dasha lord Venus is the 11th lord in Rashi chart and in Dashamsha it is the lord of lagan showing achievement in his career.
Now the Harish Rawat is under an enigmatic period of Moon-Rahu ( 29 October 2015 to 29 April 2017) in Vimshottari dasha. Moon is place in its own sign in the ascendant along with 7th and 8th lord Saturn which is a combination of mental agonies. The aspect of Jupiter over the Moon is a saving grace though. At the time of assembly elections in February he will be under the sub period of Moon. The Moon-Saturn combination is also known for giving mass following. But Moon is badly place in the 8th house of Navamsa chart which is not good. Although the anter Dasa lord Rahu is well deposited at the 11th house of Rasi chart and is receiving the aspect of 9th lord Jupiter.
In Jaimini Chara Dasa the period of Sagittarius is in operation from 26 April 2006 to 26 April 2017. The Atamakaraka Mercury, Amatayakaraka Mars and Matrikaraka Venus are giving aspect to Sagittarius and the 10th house from it showing great chances of success for Harish Rawat. The next Chara Dasa of Scorpio would also be better as these Jaimini Karaka’s would then be giving their aspect to the 11th house from this Rasi Dasa. So its look like that Harish Rawat will secure a decisive victory in the assembly polls in 2017 and will rule the state for another 5 year. Now see the horoscope of Uttarakhand State in the context of coming assembly elections.

In the horoscope of the state of Uttarakhand the Vimshottari Dasa of Mercury-Rahu ( 3 December 2014 to 21 June 2017) will be running at the time of assembly polls. Mercury as the 12th lord in Rasi chart and Rahu place in the 12th house is clearly explaining the situation of political turmoil faced by this state in recent time. Now the transiting Saturn from Sagittarius will give its 10th aspect to the Mars which is the lord of 10th house in the horoscope of Uttarakhand. The Jupiter is already transiting over the 10th lord Mars in the sign Virgo. So we can expect a strong government after the assembly polls of 2017. The Dasa lords Rahu and Mercury are at good 4-10 axis in Navamsa chart.
The BJP has not yet declared its candidate for the post of chief minister in the state of Uttarakhand. In the horoscope of BJP the difficult period of Sun-Ketu in Vimshottari is likely to give them adverse results in the assembly polls in February-March 2017.
