In a high voltage political drama in Karnataka assembly the Congress-JDS coalition government fall on the 23rd of July after 17 of their MLA’s were lured by Yeddyurappa’s state BJP unit in continuation of what media termed it as ‘operation lotus’. Yeddyurappa at the age of 76, defying the rules formed by Modi-Shah’s BJP, took the oath for office on the 26th of July 2019 at 18:34 hours in Bengaluru. When Modi government has came into power in 2014 it has set an age limit of 75 years for its party leaders for holding any important position at center or state ministries. Those who were above the age of 75 were either send to the ‘Marga Darshak Mandal’ like Lal Krishna Advani, Dr. Murali Monahar Joshi, Jaswant Singh etc. or were given the ceremonial duty of Governor (Rajya Pal) in the states like the case of Kalraj Mishra and Najma Heptulla. But surprisingly B.S. Yeddyurappa is the only Satrap in the BJP who has broken this age norm set by BJP leadership . Yeddyurappa has now become the Karnataka Chief minister for the fourth time but considering his oath taking horoscope and birth chart it is highly unlikely that he will be able to complete his tenure at this post.
Background of recent political development in Karnataka
In Karnataka assembly there are 224 seats for which election has taken place in May 2018. The incumbent Congress Party under Siddharamaiah won only 78 seats, Janda Dal Secular (JDS) got 37 and BJP won the highest 105 seats but fall short of the magic number of 113 seats to form the government. Congress President Rahul Gandhi played the trick and offer the post of chief minister to H.D. Kumarswamy of JDS despite being the fact that his party is a staunch rival of Congress in the southern Mysore region. The odd political marriage of Congress and JDS was similar to the coalition of of PDP and BJP in Jammu & Kashmir which was ended in a bitter divorce. But Rahul Gandhi wanted to take the revenge of Goa and Manipur where in 2017 BJP formed the government despite Congress being the single largest party in state. But this political move of Rahul Gandhi backfired at Congress-JDS during the general elections in Karnataka when these two parties could win only one seat each where as BJP bag 25 seats. Both Congress and JDS started blaming each other for this loss. This gave seasoned politician Yeddyurappa a chance to engineer a defection in both parties. The result was the fall of Congress-JDS alliance in Karnataka much earlier than expected.

Tithi– Krishna Navami, Vaar – Friday, Nakshatra – Bharani , Yoga– Ganda , Karna– Gara
- The Panchanga element of the Muhurata for Oath Taking of Yeddyurappa are very inauspicious. The Tithi Navami is a Rikta Tithi and Nakshatra Bharani is a ‘Kroor-Sangyak’ Nakshatra. Both are not favored for any auspicious task.
- The Moon is in Aries (Mesha) Rashi which is the 6th house of the Janma Rashi of Yeddyurappa who’s Moon sign is Scorpio. The Moon in Yeddurappa’s Muhurata chart is in ‘Kemadruma Yoga’ as there is no planet on the either side of it. Since Moon is not getting the aspect of Jupiter or its sign lord, which is Mars in this case, so the Kemadruma Yoga is not cancelled.
- Moon is in Mrityu Bhagh but it is in exchange with Mars which is good. In Navamsha Moon is debliteated and is in Rahu-Ketu axis which is bad.
- The rising sign of oath taking chart of Yeddyurappa is Capricorn (Makar) a Chara or Movable sign which is not good for the stability of the government.
- The lagna lord Saturn falls in the 12th house of losses with Ketu in close degrees which is inauspicious.
- In the oath taking chart Mars, Sun, Mercury and Venus are giving aspect to the lagna from the 7th house shows that Yeddyurappa is likely to take very quick decisions in administrative matters which will surprise his opponents.
Now let us analysis the birth chart of Yeddyurappa himself to see if he have any chance to give Karnataka a stable government ?
Horoscope of B.S. Yeddyurappa
27 February 1943, 03:00 hours at Mandya, Karnataka,
Longitude 76E 53′ and Latitude 12N 31′
In the Dhanu (Sagittarius) lagna birth chart of B.S. Yeddyurappa the opposition of Saturn and Moon is a yoga for doing popular politics with charisma. Jupiter’s aspect on the Sun is also one such yoga which make him a popular leader. But apart from the mutual aspect between the lagna lord Jupiter and 5th lord Mars there is no big Raja Yoga. Even in ‘Bhava Chalit’ Mars has move into the 2nd house and Jupiter to the 8th so they have lost their ‘Kendra Position’. Venus in the 4th house in its exaltation sign make one good Malavya Mahapurusha Yoga. But during its entire maha dasha from 1986 to 2006 he did not become chief minister. In Bhava Kundali his Raja Yoga of Mars and Jupiter has become a bit weak.
In was in 2007 when he first become chief minister just for 7 days as at that time the BJP-JDS alliance was torn apart by Kumaraswamy. Later in May 2008 BJP won Karnataka assembly election for the first time when they got 110 seats in 224 member assembly. Yeddyurappa sworn-in as chief minister for the second time during his which ran from December 2006 to December 2012. It was in Sun-Rahu dasha in Vimshottari when he took the oath of office in May 2018. Notice the aspect of lagna and 4th lord Jupiter on the 9th lord Sun.
But Sun is with Ketu and retrograde Saturn also aspect it. It put him under corruption charges and he has to resign in July 2011 during Sun-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari. He also have to spend a year in jail afterwards. Notice here the Mercury his 10th lord from the Janma lagna is in ‘Paap-Kartari’ Yoga. In Navamsha Mercury is getting the aspect of Saturn and Mars. In Dashamsha Mercury is debliteated. Yeddyurappa lost the chair of chief minister in July 2011 during his Sun-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari. BJP later had two other chief ministers for brief periods in Karnataka before they lose the assembly election in 2013 when Congress came into power and Siddaramaiha become the chief minister. During 2013 assembly elections in the state Yeddyurappa had formed a separate party ‘Karnataka Janata Paksha’ which could get only 6 seats but he made BJP stumble at only 40 seats. He was then under Moon-Moon dasha in Vimshottari. Yeddyurappa had then made BJP realized its mistake for not accepting his authority in the state politics.
Yeddyurappa’s return to the BJP and fourth term as Chief Minister of Karnataka
He was later included back tothe BJP in 2014 by Narendra Modi and Amit Shah. Since then Yeddyurappa is the front line leader of BJP in Karnataka. Now he is under Moon-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari from October 2018 to March 2020. Moon is weak in the 12th house as there is no benefic in Kendra from it. Moon has malefic Mars in its 2nd house, Saturn in its 7th house , Rahu-Ketu and Sun in its Kendra houses. This Moon is not only negative for his career but can also give him serious illness. In Navamsha and Dashamsha Moon is in own sign so even at the age of 76 his political ambitious are not died. The sub period lord Mercury is the 10th lord in 2nd house which has given him power but this is going to be for a brief period. Mercury for Dhanu lagna can make Raja Yoga if it is with Sun or at least with Mars. Mercury being Kendra lord along is a ‘Badhaka’ for Dhanu lagna chart. Mercury is also the 8th lord from Moon which has given him a surprise rise but it will not last longer.
The joint aspects of Mars and Saturn on the 8th house of Yeddyurappa is not very auspicious. His Moon-Mercury dasha in Vimshottari and transit of Ketu-Saturn on the ascendant is also not promising a smooth ride at political office. He is not likely to complete his career due to ‘Maraka’ Dashas of Moon-Mercury running and an inauspicious Muhurata chart discuss above. The by-elections for 17 seats are going to take place in next 6 months as the speaker has disqualified all the rebel MLA’s from Congress and JDS. The BJP have to win at least 10 out of these 17 seats which is highly unlikely considering the weak dashas in the horoscope of Yeddyurappa running at present. Yeddyurappa is not only likely to lose his chief minister post in next few months but he may also face some health issues.
