In Vedic Astrology the yoga’s from Chandra lagna or Moon sign has been given very special importance. In Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra’s chapter number 38 ‘Chandra Yoga Adhyay’ sloka number 13, the Sage Parashara has specifically instructed us to see all the good and bad yoga’s from Chandra Kundali before venturing into the other yoga’s result in the horoscope. Sage Parashara has clearly mentioned that bad yoga’s from Chandra lagan destroy all the other good Yoga’s (Raja Yoga’s and Dhana Yoga’s), so for this reason the yoga’s from Chandra Kundali should be taken into consideration first. So in an analysis of any horoscope the yoga’s from Chandra lagna or Moon sign should be the starting point. In this article i am discussing the horoscope of Chirag Paswan and his father late Ram Vilas Paswan as an example case on how to study a ‘Chandra Kundali’.
Chirag Paswan’s Lok Janshakti Party is fighting on the 143 assembly seats out of 243 seats in the Bihar assembly polls which are underway now. The results of these elections will come on the 10th of November 2020. I had earlier discussed the horoscopes of Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar and opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav in my article posted on 12th of Sepember 2020, the link of which is given below.
Interestingly Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and opposition leader Tejashwi Yadav both have Kemadruma Moon in their horoscopes. In Nitish Kumar’s Gemini lagna chart Moon is in Scorpio sign in the 6th house receiving the aspect of Saturn from the 4th house. Jupiter, Sun, Mercury and Rahu are in the 4th house from Moon in sign Aquarius. Jupiter in the Kendra from Moon creates a ‘Gaja Kesari’ yoga. Mercury in Kendra from Moon makes ‘Amala Keerti’ yoga. These Yoga’s has been given in Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra’s Chandra Yoga Adhyay (chapter number 38). Thus in Nitish Kumar’s chart there is good cancellation of Kemadruma Yoga. In Tejashwi Yadav’s Capriocrn chart Moon is in Aquarius receiving the aspect of its sign lord Saturn. His birth took place in day time, Moon is in Navamsha of its friend Mercury and Moon get the aspect of Jupiter which is very good yoga for prosperity as per Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra’s Chandra Yoga Adhyay sloka number 4. As per this sloka if the birth took place in day time and Moon is in its own Navamsha or its friends Navamsha getting aspect of Jupiter then it gives lots of prosperity. If the birth took place in nigth time and Moon is in own Navamsha or friendly Navamsha receiving the aspect of Venus then it give lots of prosperity. So in Tejashwi’s case also the Kemadruma Yoga of Moon get diluted just like in the case of Nitish Kumar. The presense of auspicious Yoga’s from Chandra Lagna reduce the bad effects of Kemadruma Yoga to a very large extent.
Horoscope of Chirag Pawan
31 October 1982, 12:15 hours at Madhubani, Bihar
Longitude: 84 E 06′ and Latitude: 27 N 01′
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Mercury 3 Years 2 months 14 days
Chirag Paswan is the son of former minister of parliament and cabinet minister Shri Ram Vilas Paswan. His father was the founder of a regional party Lok Janshakti which was formed on 28 November 2000 after a deflection from Nitish Kumar’s Janata Dal United. Ram Vilas Paswan was very successful when it comes to clinging to the power and political opportunism as he served in the cabinet of five Indian prime minister’s from 1996 to 2000. But his son Chirag Paswan’s horoscope is not very promising as we can see there that Moon is in Kemadruma Yoga with no benefic planet giving aspect to it and/or in Kendra from it. In Chirag Paswan’s chart Moon though is Vargottama in Pisces sign in the 3rd house of creative talent. He was an actor who did a Hindi movie in 2011 but wasn’t very successful. It was the Vimshottari dasha of Venus-Mercury in his horoscope which brought him into the glamor world of Hindi cinema in Mumbai.
Chirag Paswan is an engineering graduate as we can see in his horoscope his 5th lord Venus is in the Naksthra of Rahu. But Venus as the 5th and 10th lord is deep combust with 8th lord Sun which can be bad for his career in the future. Although in Capricorn lagna chart Saturn, Mercury and Venus forms very good Raja Yoga but here they are conjoined with functional malefic Sun which is combusting all these planets. Sun as the 8th lord and Jupiter as the 12th lord in the 10th house of career do not show very high political position for him. From Chandra Kundali all these planets are in the 8th house which is not auspicious.
Shoola Yoga in Chirag Paswan’s chart
One should also see ‘Nabhas Yoga’s in the horosclope for making a general interpretation about a native’s life. In case of Chirag Paswan we have all the planets in 3 sign’s only , making a ‘Shoola Yoga’. In Nabhasa Yoga’s shadow planets Rahu and Ketu are not take into consideration. The ‘Shoola Yoga’ gives native trouble from the enemies and also create obstacles in career. Chirag Paswan is under Moon-Rahu period in Vimshottari (June 2020 to December 2021) which shows some setback in his political career. Moon is in Kemadruma Yoga and anter dasha lord Rahu is in the 6th house of struggles. Rahu is receiving the aspect of 6th lord Jupiter which is good ‘Ashta-Lakshmi’ yoga but then Mars from the 12th house also aspect this Rahu. So during this sub period of Rahu we have seen Chirag Paswan taking the bold decision of fighting assembly elections along and now that too in the absence of his father who had experience of more than 50 years in politics. His father had mostly done politics by making alliances with different political parties but Chirag seems to be more ambitious who wanted to be a ‘king maker’ in Bihar politics. Will his political ambitions or imaginations get fulfilled ?
As per my humble understanding Chirag Paswan will get a huge setback as his party is not likely to do well in the assembly elections of Bihar. The period of Moon-Rahu-Jupiter (from September 2020 to November 2020) is going to give him a jolt and serious loss. His party is not likely to win more than 5- seats out of 143 they are contesting. The sub period lord Jupiter is in enemy sign Taurus and enemy Navamsha Libra.
What is the future of Chirag Paswan ?
Chirag Paswan has just lost his father on 8th of October 2020 when he was under Vimshottari Dasha of Moon-Rahu. The maha dasha lord Moon is in the 3rd house which is the 7th house from the 9th house of father. The anter dasha lord Rahu is in the 9th house from Sun which is the Karaka for father. His maha dasha lord Moon is in Kemadruma Yoga which is not getting cancel in his chart. The next maha dasha of Mars will come in January 2029 which is also not very promising as Mars is in the 12th house of losss. Moon is Vargottama and it is placed in the Navamsha lagan. So he will remain active in the politics but will not get any major success life his father.
Mars and Saturn both aspect the 7th house from Janma lagna which is a major yoga for delay in marriage in the horoscope of Chirag Paswan. At the age of 38 Chirag Paswan is still unmarried. Astrologically he is likely to get marry after the age of 39 during his Moon-Jupiter dasha in Vimshottari in year 2022. Jupiter is the lord of his Navamsha lagna. Before this he may also get some ministerial post in the central government of Narendra Modi next year. His Moon-Rahu dasha can make him a cabinet minister. Rahu is getting aspect of 11th lord Mars and in Navamsha it is in the 11th house of gains.
Horoscope of Ram Vilas Paswan
5 July 1946, 19:50 hours at Khagaria, Bihar
Longitude: 86 E 39′ and Latitude: 25 N 30′
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Moon 7 years 11 months 25 days
Ram Vilas Paswan is 9 time minister of parliament (MP) and have been into the cabinets of 5 prime minister of India during 1996 to 2009. He was know as the ‘weatherman of Indian politics’ for his political astuteness, opportunism and mastery in the skill of political negotiations. In this 50 year long political career he championed the cause of Dalit community the post downtrodden people of Indian society. He aspired to be the chief minister of Bihar but his ambition were never fulfilled but to other dominant leaders of ‘Mandal Era’ like Lalu Yadav and Nitish Kumar. See the strength of lagna and Moon in his horoscope. The lagna, which is Makar, is receiving the aspect of Saturn, Venus, Mercury and Jupiter. Four or more planets giving aspect to lagna and/or Moon makes very good Raja Yoga as per a Parashari dictum. The horoscope of Ram Vilas Paswan is a classical example of it. In his 50 years long political career he was know for his sincerity, hard work, down to earth behaviour, administrative skills and dignity. There was no stain of corruption on his clothes unlike many of his contemporary who were the products of socialist movement in 1970’s.
Kedar Yoga in the horoscope of Ram Vilas Paswan
In the horoscope of Ram Vilas Paswan all the planets, except Rahu-Ketu, are in the 4 Rashi’s. This is called Kedar Yoga which give a native very balanced approached in career and he remain calm and composed in difficult circumstances. Unline his son, who has all the planets in 3 sign making a bad Shoola Yoga, he has a very good Nabhas Yoga in his chart.
Now notice here the strength of Moon in the horoscope of Ram Vilas Paswan, Moon as the 7th lord is in the 9th house of luck. The 9th lord is in the 7th house of public life. This beautiful exchange of 7th house lord and 9th house lord is a Raja Yoga. Moon is in exchange with its sign lord or Moon is in conjunction or getting aspect from its sign lord is a Raja Yoga as per the Chandra Yoga Adhyay of Brihat Parashara Hora Shatra. So the Chandra Kundali of Ram Vilas Paswan has lot of strength.
Early political career and second marriage
Ram Vilas Paswan first got elected to Bihar legislative Assembly in 1969 when he was under Rahu-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari. He was also selected as the DSP (deputy supritendent of police) in 1969 before coming into politics. Rahu is in the 5th house of minister’s post which took him into politics at a very young age. There is a ‘Bandhan Yoga’ in his chart as 7th house is hemmed between Sun and Mars which are creating a ‘Paap Kartari’ also. He was in Jail during 1975-1977 during Rahu-Venus and Rahu-Sun dasha in Vimshottari. In 1977 he won Lok Sabha elections by getting 89.93 % votes which was included into the Guinnes book of world records. It was Rahu-Moon dasha in Vimshottari. In Jupiter maha dasha he got married for the second time in 1982 after giving divorce to the first wife in 1981. Chirag Paswan is his son from the second marriage. The exchange between 7th lord and 9th lord is also a yoga for more than two marriages which he had. See the Moon as the 7th lord is also in conjunction with the 12th lord Jupiter.
Rise in political career in Saturn maha dasha
Then during entire Saturn maha dasha (1996 to 2014) he enjoyed the Raja Yoga for being the minister of cabinet in the central government of various prime ministers. His party use to get only 4 to 6 MP’s but still with his political smartness he use to bag a post for himself in the cabinet very time. In 2014 he smartly moved with the NDA sending huge victory of Narendra Modi. He was in the Modi cabinet of 2014 and 2019. See the strength of Vargottama Saturn in his horoscope. The dasha of Saturn and Mercury has to give him benefits of Raja Yoga. But then there is some constrain in this Raja Yoga of Saturn, Mercury and Venus in the horoscope of Ram Vilas Paswan. These three planets are in their enemy sign Cancer and also under ‘Paap Kartari’ yoga. If planets forming the Raja Yoga comes under such condition then it bring some limitations in native’s career. It is well know that Ram Vilas Paswan wanted to be the chief minister of Bihar but he was unable to expand his mass base and was confined to be mainly a regional leader in Bihar. His party Lok Janashakti would never been able to get more than 6-7% of votes in Bihar assembly. Thus Ram Vilas Paswan was not able to rise much beyond a certain level in national or state politics.
He died in Mercury-Sun dasha in Vimshottari on 8th of October 2020 after undergoing a heart surgery. Mercury is in the 7th house, a Maraka house, in its enemy sign Cancer and in enemy Navamsha Scorpio. The anter dasha lord Sun is the lord of 8th house badly placed in the 6th house of diseases. In Jaimini system it was Chara Dasha of Sagittarius-Libra was running at the time of his death. Sagittarius is the 6th house from his Atamakaraka Venus. Libra is the 6th house from his Karakamsha lagna which is Pisces.
Now Chirage Paswan has inherited the political legacy of his father but his horoscope is not as strong as compare to his father so he is not likely to achieve that much success in any case. The political career of Chirag Paswan will be very moderate and he is going to create a lots of enemies for himself by his own mistake due the presence of bad Kemadruma Yoga and Shoola Yoga in his horoscope.
