The BJP-Shiv Sena relations in the last 5 year was like a teenage love story- they fought 2014 Lok Sabha Elections together in alliance and won handsomely but then broke up after few months. In October 2014 Maharashtra Assembly Elections both BJP and Shiv Sena fought alone but again patched-up to form the government. Then again they fought the civic body and Panchayat elections separately during 2015-2018. Under the leadership of Devendra Fadnavis BJP performed well in these local bodies elections and Shiva Sena was distant second. This made Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray realized that now it is time to accept the junior partner role in the alliance with the BJP as he can not survive in the fight with Congress-NCP alliance if it is a triangular contest. The horoscope of Uddhav Thackeray shows that his party will perform well in the coming assembly elections in Maharashtra in October 2019 but then his relations with the BJP will continue to be sore.

Balance of Dasa in Vimshottari: Venus 11 years 4 months 19 days
In the Virgo lagna horoscope of Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray Mars in the 9th house of father shows his aggressive political legacy which he inherited from his father late Balasaheb Thackeray. His father was a cartoonist who formed Shiv Sena on 19 June 1966 at 18:00 hours Mumbai when Scorpio sign was rising with Mars in the 7th house. Uddhav Thackeray is an ardent writer and photographer who entered into politics in January 2003 during his Rahu-Mercury Dasa in Vimshottari. He had disputes with Narayan Rane and his cousin Raj Thackeray who left the party in 2006. Uddhav’s Moon is in Leo and he was under a ‘Sadhe-Sati’ then which gave him troubles in initial years of his political career. His father Bal Thackeray died on 17 November 2012 when he was under Dasha Chiddra of Rahu-Mars in Vimshottari. Rahu is in the 2nd house from Sun and Mars as the 8th lord is placed in the 9th house of father explains it amply.

Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari- Sun 2 years 3 months and 19 days
The Makar lagna horoscope given above is of most charismatic leader Maharashtra ever had late Balasaheb Thackeray. One can compare it with the horoscope of current Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray to astrologically access why he is not as famous and authoritative as his late father was. Although during the time of Balasaheb Thackeray Shiv Sena could manage to get the Chief Minister post in Maharashtra for only once’s and that too for a very brief period between 1995 to 1999. But Balasaheb Thackeray had great hold over the politics of Maharashtra in 1990’s and early 2000. His scarcest remarks, cartoons and hard-hitting views use to get highest media attention. He was the man of strong character and firm views on Hindutava ideology. See the strong lagna lord Saturn in the 11th house with Mars in the horoscope of senior Thackeray. Saturn and Mars together in Upachaya Bhava’s (3, 6, 10 and 11) gives one a Kshatriya personality if the lagna and Moon are also strong. In case of late Bal Thackeray’s horoscope this yoga is present. An exalted Moon in the 5th house under technical influence shows his creativity. The 3rd lord lord Jupiter is debliteated in the lagan and Moon sign lord is strong in the 2nd house. He was an excellent cartoonist and majestic orator. But then Moon getting under the influence of Mars again in Navamsha chart has to made him aggressive and bit fanatic. Now compare his chart with his son’s Uddhav Thackeray were there are mix influences of benefic and malefic planets on the Moon, 2nd house and 5th house in Rashi and Navamsha.
Mr. Bal Thackeray died on 17 November 2012 when he was passing through Mercury-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari. Till the death of Bal Thackeray in 2012 Shiv Sena was the senior partner in its alliance with BJP. Later it had to compromise its position as Modi wave helped BJP to grew stronger at grassroots level in Maharashtra.
Rise of Uddhav Thackeray in Maharashtra politics
It was the Dasa of Jupiter-Jupiter in Vimshottari in 2014 in the Virgo langa horoscope of Uddhav Thackeray which gave him good rise. His party did well in Lok Sabha Elections in 2014 winning 18 seats and in assembly polls they also perform decently sharing power with BJP post elections. Jupiter is in own sign Sagittarius in the 4th house with 5th lord Saturn and is in mutual aspect with lagna and 10th lord Mercury. But the 8th aspect of Mars on the Dasha lord Jupiter explains his party’s spat against their partner BJP. The Vimshottari Dasha of Jupiter-Mercury from 15 August 2017 to 22 November 2019 is good for Uddhav’s political career. Mercury is Vargottama in own sign Gemini at the 10th house. It is the lord of Dashamasha lagan and is placed in the 9th house with Moon in Dashamasha chart. Shiva Sena at present is under its golden period as they have again won 18 seats in Lok Sabha elections this year. They are also likely to do well in the assembly polls in which they will be contesting in alliance with BJP. But post elections troubles over the issue of sharing power will give tensions to Uddhav as the Dasha of Jupiter-Ketu in Vimshottari after November shows. Ketu is in the 6th house of disputes under the aspect of 11th lord Moon and 6th lord Saturn. In Navamasha Jupiter and Ketu both get the aspects of Mars and Saturn. So Uddhav Thackery’s party Shiv Sena may have to content with the post of deputy chief minister after the elections.
Then later Uddhav Thackeray will enter into an enigmatic dasha period of Jupiter-Venus from October 2020 to June 2023. Jupiter and Venus are in bad 6/8 axis in his horoscope. During this dasha period his health may suffer and bit. His relations with the BJP leaders will be at its worst then. The horoscope of Devendra Fadnavis i have discuss earlier also shows these astrological possibilities.
Horoscope of Shiv Sena
19 June 1966, 18:00 hours at Mumbai, Maharashtra
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Rahu 9 years 0 months 4 days
In the Scorpio lagna horoscope of Shiv Sena as many as 6 planets give their aspect to the 2nd house of speech. Mars, Saturn, Sun, Moon, Jupiter and Mercury all are giving aspect to the 2nd house. It astrologically explains it that despite having low foot prints in Indian politics this party has very prominent voice which is aggressive in its tone and it gets high media coverage as compare to other regional parties of India. Shiv Sena can never kept it-self quite when it comes to expressing its views on the issues of national importance. Unlike other regional parties Shiv Sena has very strong media presence though its aggressive spokespersons. A strong 2nd house also shows enormous financial resources this party control because of its power holding in Mumbai Municipal Corporation who’s budget is bigger than even some of the Indian states. Mumbai is the financial capital of India having corporate offices of almost all the big companies. Shiv Sena is the most popular party in Mumbai since many decades now. But then this party could never be able to come into power at its own in the Maharashtra state as her chart has a major weakness. Notice here the lagna and 6th lord Mars with Rahu in the 7th house of partnership and the bad aspect of Saturn over it. The Shiv Sena is getting hurt by its own alliance partner which is BJP.
It is maha dasha of Mercury (from June 2010 to June 2027) that has given Shiv Sena its golden run as far as poll results are concern. Mercury is the lord of 11th house but being the 8th house it also has to give this party some difficulties. It is Mercury-Mars period (December 2018 to December 2019) is running at present then Mercury-Rahu is to follow which will run till July 2022. Mercury-Rahu period from December 2019 onward will not be comfortable for Shiv Sena. See Rahu is in the 7th house of alliance with lagna nad 6th lord Mars. It get the bad aspect of malefic Saturn. Then in transit the Saturn will be in Makar Rashi which is the 8th house from the natal Moon in Gemini. All these combinations shows violent activities, ill-health of its leaders and disputes with alliance partner BJP at very high level.
