In a surprise development in Madhya Pradesh Jyotiraditya Scindia left Congress Party, along with his supporting MLA’s, to join the BJP which has put Kamal Nath government in the state in a position from where their survival has become almost impossible. Jyotiraditya Scindia is a second generation senior Congress leader who’s leaving the party is a major loss for Gandhi family. Scindia is under his ‘Sadhe-Sati’ in the Makar (Capricorn) lagna chart with an enigmatic Saturn-Rahu dasha in Vimshottari. Though he has spent 18 long years in politics with vast experience as cabinet minister in the Manmohan Singh’s UPA government but his chart do not seem to be impressive enough for him to become a regional satrap. Mamata Banerjee, Sharad Pawar, Jagan Mohan Reddy etc. had also left the Congress party earlier and then formed their own religious parties which captured power in their respective states but the situation of Jyotiraditya Scindia is entirely different. We will study the horoscope of Jyotiraditya Scindia in more details but first we will see how this political disturbance become so volatile in Madhya Pradesh where just 15 month old Kamal Nath government is now counting its last breaths.
It was in the December 2018 when Congress party has won the Madhya Pradesh State assembly elections after defeating incumbent BJP who was in power since last 15 years. Kamal Nath sworn in as the chief minister of the state on the 17th of December when Aries lagna was rising in the ascendant.
Oath Taking Horoscope of Chief Minister Kamal Nath

Destiny of Kamal Nath to get a bad Muhurata for oath taking ?
Now see the oath taking horoscope of Kamal Nath given above. It was his destiny that he got a movable sign in the ascendant with Moon falling in the 12th house of losses. The two other chief ministers who took oath on the same day were Ashok Ghelot in Rajasthan and Bhupesh Bhagal in Chhattisgarh who both got the dual sign (Dwisavbhav lagna) as the rising sign of their swearing-in charts. As per the cardinal principal of Muhurata the rising sign should be either a fixed sign (Taurus, Leo, Aquarius or Scorpio) or a common sign (Gemini, Virgo, Pisces or Sagittarius). If one need to take an oath in movable sign then chose Libra (Tula). Aries, Cancer and Capricorn are not preferred for swearing-in of ministers.
Then another important principal is that Moon and lagna lord should not be in ‘Dusthan’ (6th, 8th or 12th houses) in the oath taking chart. Also the 10th house should not have a malefic planet. The house which is related with the purpose of Muhurata should be free from malefic influences. If you are selecting the Muhurata for entry into a new house then you should not have malefic planets in the 4th house, which signifies house, in the Muhurata chart. If you are taking a Muhurata to start a new job then never chose a Muhurata which has malefic in the 10th house from the rising sign.
Here we have malefic Ketu in the 10th house in the oath taking chart of Kamal Nath in Rashi and in Navamsha Mars is placed in the 10th house. In Rashi (birth chart) the Ketu is in the 10th house is flanked by malefic planets on its either side. Mars is in the 11th house and Saturn-Sun are in the 9th house of Ketu make the ‘Paap-Kartari’ yoga. In Navamsha Mars is in the 10th house under the aspect of malefic Saturn.
Ashok Ghelot was lucky to get his oath taking when Aquarius lagna, a fixed sign, was rising with two benefic Mercury and Jupiter in the 10th house. Bhupesh Bhegal took the oath when Gemini lagna, a common sign, was rising with Moon in the 10th house under the aspect of 10th lord Jupiter there. So chief minister’s of Rajasthan (Ashok Ghelot) and Chhattisgarh (Bhupesh Bhagal) both got an auspicious Muhurata whereas Kamal Nath got trapped by his destiny which gave him a bad Muhurata to start his work as the chief minister of state. See how this reflect in the horoscope of chief minister Kamal Nath given below.
Horoscope of Kamal Nath
Kamal Nath was born on 18 November 1946 at Kapur Uttar Pradesh in the afternoon when Pisces lagna was rising and Moon was in Virgo sign. Interestingly Congress Party also have Pisces lagna chart with Moon in Virgo. It is no surprise the he had a long and very successful career in Congress Party has he never lost any Lok Sabha elections since 1980. Former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi had launched Kamal Nath from Chhindwara Lok Sabha seat in Madhya Pradesh in year 1980. Smt. Indira Gandhi was then seeking the votes for Kamal Nath by addressing him as his third son such were the close bounding Gandhi family had with Kamal Nath who was later accommodated into cabinet of Congress governments at the center. During the maha dasha of Jupiter (1985 to 2001) and then in Saturn (2001 to 2020) Kamal Nath became cabinet minister on many occasions. He made Chhindwara as his strong basin from where Congress won elections even during the Modi wave in 2014 and 2019. See the strong 9th house of luck in both Rashi chart and Navamsha of Kamal Nath which explain his success.
Dasha Chiddra of Kamal Nath
During the Saturn-Jupiter-Ketu dasha in Vimshottari Kamal Nath become the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh in December 2018. He got the support of Digvijay Singh, the former two time chief minister of state, who backed him ahead of Jyotiraditya Scindia who was the choice of Rahul Gandhi for this post. This is where the tussle for power was started between Scindia group and Kamal Nath- Digvijay Singh camp in Madhya Pradesh Congress. We must notice this in the horoscope of Kamal Nath that he is under Dasha Chiddra of Saturn as Mercury maha dasha is about to come. Saturn-Jupiter period in Vimshottari is ending in May 2020 and Mercury, which is in Mrityu Bhagh degrees, maha dasha is about to start. Saturn though is in 5th house of minister’s post but is in its enemy sign Cancer. Jupiter is also in its enemy sign Libra. But since both were strong in Navamsha so he got the chance to become the chief minister ahead of his rivals in party. But then both Saturn and Jupiter are not involve in any great Raja Yoga and an eclipse had fallen on the 10th house of Kamal Nath on the 26th of December 2019. As transiting Mars triggered this eclipse point in February-March this year the revolt against him started within the Madhya Pradesh Congress lead by Jyotiraditya Scindia.
Horoscope of Jyotiraditya Scindia
1 January 1971, 09:40 hours at Mumbai
Jyotiraditya Scindia come from the erstwhile Maratha princely state of Gwalior. He is popular in Gwalior, Chambal and Guna district where people address him lovingly as ‘Maharaja Saheb’. In the Capricorn lagna chart there is a classical ‘Neecha Bhanga Raja Yoga’ as a debliteated planet aspect the lagna and both lagna and Moon are strong. Saturn aspect the lagna from Aries its sign of deblitation and it is also in mutual aspect with Mars its sign lord. So lagna is strong as its lord is in mutual aspect with its sign lord. Moon in Aquarius though is in Kemadruma Yoga but the 10th house from Moon has two benefic planets Jupiter and Venus which give it strength. The depositor of Moon is Saturn which is involve in a good “Neecha-Bhanga” Yoga. In the Navamsha chart lagna lord Sun is with 5th lord Jupiter in good Raja Yoga. The 9th lord Mars is in mutual aspect with 7th lord Saturn in another decent yoga. In the maha dasha of Saturn, which started in January 2005, Scindia rose to high ranks in the Congress party.
Jyotriditya’s father Madhavrao Scindia was good friend of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and was cabinet minister. Jyotriditya himself was very close to Rahul Gandhi which is the reason that everyone was caught be surprise when he took the decision to leave Congress Party. But then Jyotriditya’s grand mother Vijaya Raje Scindia was one of the founder member of the BJP. Jyotriditya’s aunt Vasundhara Raje Scindia is senior BJP leader and three time chief minister of Rajasthan. So Jyotriditya’s joining the BJP has now united the Scindia family for the BJP.
In the Makar lagna horoscope of Jyotriditya he is under dasha of Saturn-Rahu (September 2018 to July 2021) in Vimshottari. He suffered a humiliating loss in the Lok Sabha elections from Guna Lok Sabha seat in May 2019 during Saturn-Rahu-Jupiter. It could have been the trigger point when he would have thought that now he has not a very bright future in the Congress party. But then Jyotriditya Scindia is now under ‘Sadhe-Sati’ which in the second stage can bring major troubles for him. The Dasha Chiddra of Saturn-Jupiter (from July 2021 to January 2024) and transit of Saturn from Aquarius from July 2022 onward will start giving him disturbances. He is likely to face dissatisfaction in the BJP. He is likely to get a cabinet minister post this year in Saturn-Rahu-Venus (from June 2020 to December 2020) but when his Mercury maha dasha will start in January 2024 he will lose this post. Mercury is in the 12th house of losses which will give him more disappointment in 2024 Lok Sabha general elections.
Horoscope of Digvijay Singh
The two time Congress chief minister Digvijay Singh was born in Libra lagna with great Raja Yoga of lagna lord Venus in mutual aspect with 4th and 5th lord Saturn. Digvijay Singh comes from the royal family of Raghogarh in Madhya Pradesh. He was the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh from 1993 to 2003 during his Saturn maha dasha (1990 to 2009) in Vimshottari. It was during December 2003 when in Saturn-Mars dasha in Vimshottari when he lost position as BJP had then defeated Congress in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections. The transiting Saturn was in Taurus then over his natal Moon which is in the 8th house. He was so disappointed with this defeat that he denied Congress Party’s proposal to go to Rajya Sabha (upper house) and become Cabinet minister in the UPA government of Manmohan Singh (2004 to 2014).
Digvijay Singh’s wife Asha Singh died in year 2013 when he was passing by Mercury-Venus (December 2012 to October 2015) in Vimshottari. In April 2014 he admitted that he was in a relationship with a TV anchor Amrita Singh and the couple got married in August 2015. It is in year 2018 during Mercury-Mars he completed an incredible journey of 3300 KM of Narmada Parikrama in 192 days by foot along with his wife after taking the blessings of his Guru Shankaracharya Swami Swaroopanand Saraswati. He was blessed with success in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections as Congress won because of his great efforts to unit the party workers during assembly polls. The 9th lord Mercury with 7th lord Mars in the 5th house along with 11th lord Sun has to give him success during its dasha.
But now under Mercury-Rahu period in Vimshottari (January 2019 to August 2021) as Rahu first gave him a famous defeat during Lok Sabha elections in May 2019 by Pragya Singh Thakur in Bhopal and then this crisis in Madhya Pradesh after the resignation of Scindia and his supporters which is likely to bring the fall of Kamal Nath led Congress government in next few days. But even though the Kamal Nath government will fall the political career of Digvijay Singh is not over yet. He will got to Rajya Sabha (upper house) and continue his fight in coming Mercury-Jupiter dasha (August 2021 to November 2023). Then Mercury-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari (November 2023 to August 2026) again promise a rise in political career for him. The maha dasha of Ketu in the second house starting from August 2026 will prove to be a ‘Maraka’ period for him.
