On the 11th of December in an important development, Rahul Gandhi was ‘selected’ as the party president of Congress. I have used the word ‘selected’ as there was no internal democratic election in the Congress to elect its president. Rahul Gandhi was elected as president unopposed as nobody in Congress filed his nomination against him. He succeed his mother Sonia Gandhi who was party president for 19 long years. Since 1978 Congress party is headed mostly by a family member of Nehru-Gandhi dynasty. There has been no fair democratic election in the Congress since its reformation by the Indira Gandhi on 2nd of January 1978. It is the unfortunate story of every political party of India since last few decades. There is not internal democracy in almost every major political parties except the ‘left parties’ of West Bengal and Kerala. The political parties have become family entities or they are dominated by a melodramatic leader who ‘select’ people on important positions as per his convenience. A day will come when people of India will raise the issue of internal democracy within the political parties.
Now coming back to Rahul Gandhi his horoscope is suggesting that he can change the fortunes of Congress party with some election victories in assembly polls. In Gujarat assembly elections 2017 the Congress can do well to surprise the strong BJP led by prime minister Modi. Later in year 2018 the Congress will do well in the assembly polls in Karnataka , Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattishgarh. But party will not come back to power in the general elections in 2019.

Jupiter transiting from Libra is giving aspect to the 7th house , 9th house and 7th lord Mars. The anter dasha lord Venus is the lord of ascendant. Venus is also the lord of lagna in Navamsha and Dashamsha. So its sub period can also give ‘marriage’ or relationship apart from a big success in career. Rahul Gandhi is also under ‘Sadhe-Sati’ and the transit of Saturn over his ‘Janama Nakshatra’ indicate major transformation in his life.
So won’t be surprise if you hear the news about Rahul Gandhi’ marriage or his relationship in next few days. His personal life has been kept secret ever since he joined politics in year 2004. See the lordship of Mars and Venus in Navamsha chart. They are the 7th and lagna lord there in mutual aspects. In Jaimini Chara dasha the period of Pisces-Libra will be running from 18th of December 2018 to 19 May 2018. The Pisces receiving the aspect of Darakaraka Moon and the Libra is the 7th house from Darakaraka in the Navamsha chart tells about the possible matter of marriage or relationship here.
Can Rahul Gandhi get married in 2018 ?
The elevation of Rahul Gandhi as party president of Congress is also amply clear from the annual horoscope (Varshaphala) for completed year 47. In the annual horoscope of Rahul Gandhi the Libra sign is rising which is the rashi of his ascendant ‘Janama lagna’. When in the ascendant of a annual horoscope or Varshaphala the rising sign is of ‘Janama lagna’ then it is called ‘Dwi-Janama lagna’. That particular year is very crucial for the native.
In the annual horoscope for completed year 47 the lagan lord Venus is in the 7th house of marriage or relationship. The 7th lord Mars is in 9th house conjoined with Sun and Mercury in mutual aspect with retrograde Saturn which is the lord of 5th house of love affairs. So there could be a news about Rahul Gandhi’s relationship or marriage.
However, since Rahul Gandhi has so many astrological combination of denial of happiness from conjugal life so there could be a great possibility that he may not marry in his life.
Also notice the concentration of planets in the 9th house (Dharma) of annual horoscope of Rahul Gandhi and the aspect of Jupiter over the 10th lord Moon. Rahul Gandhi has drastically changed his personality. He is now taking Congress towards its old policy of ‘soft Hindutava’ to counter the polarization tactics of the BJP. Rahul Gandhi’s grandmother Indira Gandhi use to visit many Hindu saints to take their blessings. His father Rajiv Gandhi was the one who let the foundation- laying of Ram Temple at Ayodhya after taking the instructions from Deoraha Baba in 1989.
Now the activation of 9th house in transit and dasha in the birth chart of Rahul Gandhi explain astrologically why Rahul Gandhi is moving towards ‘soft Hindutava’ by visiting various temples since last few months. The ‘Sadhe-Sati’ of Rahul Gandhi has given him an important responsibility of reviving the Congress Party by countering the firebrand Hindutava politics of the ruling BJP. By visiting the Hindu temples Rahul Gandhi wants to break the Congress image of ‘anti-Hindu’ party which BJP cleverly managed to create through its media campaigns in the recent years.
Now coming back to current political scenario , the Congress party is at present under the worst condition in its history. Except Punjab and Karnataka this party is not in power in any major state of the country. The Congress was not in such poor state even after the defeat in the general elections of 1977, 1989, 1996 and 1998. During that time Congress had governments in some major states and an organized carder which allow them to make come backs in later general elections. However, the rise of Narendra Modi in the politics of center has given Congress successive election defeats since 2013 assembly polls when party lost in Rajasthan, Delhi, Chattishgarh and Madhya Pradesh. The last victory Congress had register over BJP , in a straight battle between the two , was in May 2013 when they won Karnataka assembly elections.
Now this situation is going to change to some extent during the presidency of Rahul Gandhi.
Horoscope of Congress Party and its prospects in general elections 2019
Congress Party Horoscope
2 January 1978 at 12:00 noon (Delhi)
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Moon 6 years 2 months 2 days
Congress party is running under the Vimshottari dasha of Jupiter-Venus from January 2017 to September 2019. The Jupiter and Venus are both in Kendra in the Rashi chart. Venus being the 3rd lord in the 10th house is showing the increased efforts by the party leadership in trying to get the organization back on the winning track. However, since Venus also take the lordship of 8th house and is getting combust with the 6th lord Sun so it also shows the possibility of disputes. The transiting Saturn over the 10th house Sagittarius which is also the 4th from the natal Moon of Congress party is indicating drastic changes in the party set-up. Rahul Gandhi may soon announce paradoxical measures for the overhauling of Congress setup. Old generation of leaders who are incapable of leading any protest movement against the ruling BJP will be set aside from the core body of Congress party. Rahul Gandhi will promote young blood in the party organization to counter the aggressive BJP at various levels.
Leaders like Jyotiraditya Scindia , Sachin Pilot, Milind Deora , Randeep Surjewala , Sharmistha Mukherjee etc. will be given important responsibilities in the party rank. This might ignite some older generation of Congress leaders who may instigate some conspiracy against the Rahul Gandhi. In Chara dasha the party is under the period of Leo till January 2020 which doesn’t look very promising. Leo dasha was started in January 2012 and since then the party is facing lots of trouble due to arrogance of its leaders. The Leo being the 6th house from the lagna and also from the Karakamsha has given lots of negative publicity to this party. The BJP was successfully created a public perception, through a mass media campaign, that Congress is deeply rooted into corruption and in Muslim appeasement at the cost of the interest of Hindu majority population. Now this situation will take lots of time to change.
The congress might win some of the assembly elections in 2018 but will not be able to form a government at the center in 2019. Congress leadership may also face lots of troubles due to the ‘National Herald’ case filed against Rahul and Sonia Gandhi.
Revival of Congress Party after July 2020
Later in July 2020 the period of Jupiter-Moon will come into operation. In Chara dasha the period of Virgo will be running then. These two positive dashas will let Congress to get back into the position where they can make Modi bit unpopular. The Moon and Jupiter are in positive ‘Gaja-Kesari’ yoga in the chart of Congress party in both Rashi and Navamsha charts. In Chara dasha the period of Virgo will be in operation from January 2020 to January 2030. The Virgo is the 7th house from lagna and Karakamsha. It is receiving the aspect of Amatayakaraka Sun, Putrakaraka Mercury and Darakaraka Jupiter. But it is only after 2022 that Rahul Gandhi can rise as a strong leader in his Rahu-Jupiter dasha in Vimshottari.
So as per my humble astrological assessment the Congress party will start improving its performance under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi in a slow process. They will do well in the coming assembly elections and also improve their telly in the general elections of 2019. It is highly likely that BJP will not get the full majority at the center in the general elections of 2019. The BJP will then have to form a coalition government at the center. A big war in the early 2020 between India and China will also become the cause of the Modi’s unpopularity later which i have also indicated in my earlier articles using the foundation chart of India, BJP and of Narendra Modi himself.
