Horoscope of Benjamin Netanyahu
21 October 1949, 10:15 hours at Tel Aviv, Israel
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari : Mars 5 years 7 months 1 days
In the Scorpio lagna horoscope of Benjamin Netanyahu the lagan and 6th lord Mars is conjoined with 3rd lord Saturn in the 10th house of career. He served in the Israel defense forces during 1967 to 1973 when he was under the maha dasha of Rahu which is in the 5th house getting the aspect of Mars. Now I will be discussing some of the major events in the life of Netanyahu using divisional horoscopes by the method of Sage Parashara.
Death of Elder Brother Yonatan Netanyahu in 1976: His elder brother Yonatan was also in the Israel Army who died in a military operation on 4 July 1976. At that time Benjamin Netanyahu was running under Jupiter-Saturn in Vimshottari. Both dasha lords Jupiter and Saturn are in 6/8 from each other in Rashi chart. Saturn as the lord of 3rd house is with 6th lord Mars showing death of his brother in military combat. In Dreshkkan chart Jupiter is the lord of lagna with 7th lord (Marak) Mercury. Saturn, the sub period lord, is in the 2nd house a Maraka house there for siblings.
Netanyahu’s Marriages: He got married for the first time on 26 August 1972 when he was passing through Rahu-Mars dasha in Vimshottari. Mars is the lord of lagna in Rashi chart. Mars is conjoined with the 7th lord Mercury in Navamsha chart. This marriage took place in a bad dasha so it was not surprise that it did not last longer. He got married for the second time on 2 May 1981 this time during Jupiter-Venus in Vimshottari. Jupiter as the 5th lord is giving aspect to the 7th house. Venus is the lord of 7th house in Rashi chart. Venus is also placed in the lagna of both Rashi and Navamsha charts. This marriage last for some years as this time it was solemnized in better period.
Later Netanyahu got married for the third time on 3 March 1991 with Sarah-Ben-Arzi. This time he was under Saturn-Saturn period in Vimshottari. Saturn is giving aspect to the 7th house in Rashi and in Navamsha it is giving aspect to his lagna. He had two children with his second marriage , which is still continuing successfully.
Child birth of Netanyahu: He had children in the maha dasha of Saturn which is exalted in the Navamsha chart and in Saptamasha it is in the own house. Saturn in Saptamasha is in mutual aspect with 5th lord Jupiter there. His first child (son) was born on 26 July 1991 in Saturn-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari. His second child (son) was born on 10 October 1994 in Saturn-Mercury period in Vimshottari. Mercury in his Scorpio lagna Rashi chart is conjoined with 9th lord Moon and getting the aspect of 5th lord Jupiter. In Navamsha Mercury is conjoined with 5th lord Mars. In Saptamsha Mercury is giving aspect to the 5th house of children.
Death of Parents: His mother was died on 1st of February 2000 in Saturn-Sun period in Vimshottari. Saturn is the lord of 4th house (mother) placed in the 10th house which is the 7th house from it a Maraka house for mother. Sun the anter dasha lord is the 10th lord which is the Maraka for mother. The 5th house and the 10th house of Rashi chart are Maraka for mother as they are 2nd and 7th respectively from the 4th house of mother. In Dwadamsha the 2nd and 7th house from lagna is Maraka for parents. Now apply the dasha of Saturn-Sun in Dwadamsha chart where Taurus sign is rising. The Saturn falls in the 12th house getting the aspect of Mars which is the lord of 7th house (Maraka) in Dwadamsha chart. Sun the anter dasha lord is in the 7th house of Dwadamsha chart showing death of his mother during this period.
Father of Benjamin Netanyahu died on 30 April 2012 when it was the Vimshottari dasha of Mercury-Venus in his horoscope. See in the Rashi chart Mercury falling in the 12th house from Sun the Karaka of father. Venus is in the 2nd house from Sun getting the aspect of Mars which is the lord of 7th house from Sun. In Dwadamsha this event is more clear as Mercury is the lord of 2nd house and Venus is in the 2nd house itself which is a Maraka house there for parents.
Becoming Prime Minister of Israel: Netanyahu become the PM of Israel for the first time on 30 May 1996 when his enigmatic Saturn-Venus in Vimshottari was running. Saturn is placed in the 10th house of power and Venus is in the lagna. But since both Saturn and Venus are functional malefic for his Scorpio lagna chart so he remain in power for 3 years only. In Dashamsha chart the Saturn is strong placed in the 4th house but Venus is the lord of 6th house and is with 8th lord Moon there.
In July 1999 in his Saturn-Sun dasha in Vimshottari he was defeated in elections by Ehud Barak who then become the prime minister replacing him. Netanyahu’s Sun anter dasha has to give him bad results as it is as the 10th lord is falling in the 12th house of losses.
Great Rise in Mercury dasha: On 30 March 2009 he again become the prime minister after sitting in the opposition for 10 years. This time his Mercury-Mercury period was running in Vimshottari. Mercury as the 11th lord is in own sign with 9th lord Moon and is getting the aspect of 5th lord Jupiter by this it is making a great Dhana Yoga. Mercury is the lord of 10th lord in Navamsha and Dashamsha charts. In Navamsha it is the 10th lord conjoined with the 5th lord Mars and is in mutual aspect with 9th lord Sun in a great Raj Yoga. In Mercury-Venus he reelected for the 3rd time in 2013 and in Mercury-Sun in March 2015 he return to power for the 4th time as the prime minister matching David Ben Gurion record who as the first prime minister of Israel.
General Election on 9th of April: Now at the time of Israel’s general elections Netanyahu would be under Dhanu-Mithun period in Jaimini Chara dasha. Amatayakaraka Saturn is giving the Jaimini aspect to the 11th house from both Dhanu and Mithun Rashi’s which is showing a good chance for his comeback. In Vimshottari Mercury-Rahu-Mercury period is running from January 2019 to May 2019. Rahu the anter dasha lord is in the 5th house of ‘Mantri-Pada’. Rahu is getting the aspect of Mercury and Moon both benefics. Rahu is well placed in Navamsha and Dashamsha so its sub period has to be good for him.
In Netanyahu’s horoscope the 7th lord Venus is in the ascendant which make it the case for the application of Dwisaptati Sama Dasha; a conditional dasha of Sage Parashara. Dwisaptati Sama Dasha is applicable in horoscopes where the 7th lord is in the lagna or the lagna lord is in the 7th house. Here in Dwisaptati Sama Dasha Venus-Jupiter-Rahu period is running which is again good. Rahu placed in the 5th house will give him diplomatic ability to run a good election campaign and get coalition partners after the elections to form a government. Thus Netanyahu can become the Israel’s PM for the record 5th time this year.
World leaders ruled by Scorpio Sign

At present as many as 5 prominent head of states in the world have either Scorpio rising in their ascendant or they have their Moon in Scorpio sign. Donald Trump has his Moon in Scorpio Rashi, Angela Merkel has Scorpio rising in her ascendant , Vladimir Putin the dictator of Russia also has Scorpio lagna chart, then our prime minister Narendra Modi too has Scorpio lagna with Moon in the ascendant and now i have analysis here the chart of Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu who is also a Scorpio statesman. You can read my article about Donald Trump, Angela Merkel, Vladimir Putin and Narendra Modi by clicking the blue links given with their names above. It is no surprise that Narendra Modi with Scorpio lagna and Moon sign has good relations with all these world leaders of USA, Russia, Israel and Germany. On the other hand the Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan having his Moon in Aries is likely to be on bad terms with the above mention head of the states.
