Shatrughan Sinha is the famous Hindi cinema star of 1970s and 1980s. He won the hearts of millions with his impressive voice, dialogue delivery style and personality. Superstar Rajinikanth once’s revealed in an interview with India Today Magazine that “Bollywood actor Shatrughan Sinha inspired him to come up with his signature “cigarette flip style”. However, Shatrughan Sinha’s political career was not very good unlike his film stardom. In the Taurus lagna horoscope of Shatrughan Sinha a weak Kemadruma Moon in Makar Rashi explain it astrologically. During his second ‘Sadhe-Sati’ of life Shatrughan Sinha entered into politics in early 1990 by joining the BJP. He not only lost an election against Congress Party’s Rajesh Khanna in 1992 but also lose him as a good friend. Rajesh Khanna was so disappointed with Shatrughan Sinha, for standing against him at Lok Sabha by-elections then, that he never spoke to him in life again. It was the ‘Sadhe-Sati’ and dasha of Saturn-Saturn in 1992 that give a huge setback to Shatrughan Sinha then. Now he is again going through his ‘Sadhe-Sati’, which is third in his life, and a weak dasha of Mercury-Mars is indicating another loss in elections.

He started his acting career in 1969 during his Rahu-Venus in Vimshottari (January 1969 to January 1972). Venus though is involve in a Raja Yoga but it is in the 6th house from maha dasha lord Rahu. So in his early years he got some small roles and get mainly villainous characters. His first successful film as a lead hero was ‘Kalicharan’ in 1976 for which he once’s gave credit to his old friend Rajesh Khanna who recommended his name to the producer N.N. Sippy. It was the dasha of Jupiter-Jupiter (June 1975 to August 1977) that give Shatrughan Sinha stability as a leading action hero. There was a time when he along with Vinod Khanna were consider a tough challenge for the number one superstar of that time Amitabh Bacchan. In the mid 1980s Shatrughan Sinha was passing through the Jupiter-Venus and Jupiter-Sun dashas when he gave lots of successful movies at box office in which he was second lead to Rajesh Khanna. He again credited his friend Rajesh Khanna for giving his career a boost. At that time in 1980s he was working in multi-starer films mostly with Rajesh Khanna and Dharmendra.
Marriage and Children of Shatrughan Sinha
Shatrughan Sinha got married with Poonam Chandiramani (now Poonam Sinha) in 1980. Poonam Chandiramani was born in a Sindi family where as Shatrughan Sinha was a Kayastha so it was an inter-cast marriage. His wife was a former film actress that appear in 1970s with a screen name Komal in some movies but was not successful. After a relationship they got married on 9 July 1980 when Jupiter-Mercury in Vimshottari was running in the horoscope of Shatrughan Sinha. Jupiter is in the 5th house of love affair and Mercury is in the 7th house of marriage in Rashi chart. Jupiter is giving aspect to the 7th house of marriage in Navamsha. The sub period lord Mercury is in mutual aspect with the lagan lord of Navamsha Moon.
The couple had three children; Luv Sinha and Kush Sinha the twins born on 1 June 1983 when Shatrughan Sinha was running under Jupiter-Venus in Vimshottari. Later a daughter Sonakshi Sinha was born on 2 June 1987 when her father was under Jupiter-Moon in Vimshottari. Jupiter is in the 5th house of children in Rashi chart. In Navamsha Jupiter is with 5th lord Mars. In Saptamsha the Jupiter is the lord of lagan itself. The birth of children took place in the sub periods of Venus and Moon. Venus is conjoined with 5th lord Mercury in the Rashi chart and in Saptamsha it is in the 5th house itself. Moon is in the 9th house in Rashi chart, which is the secondary house for child birth, and in Satamsha it is the 5th lord. All his children tried their luck in Hindi film industry but only daughter Sonakshi got some success in acting career.
Sadhe Sati of Shatrughan Sinha made him lose Rajesh Khanna as a friend
In 1992 when Saturn was transiting from Capricorn on the natal Moon of Shatrughan Sinha he made the mistake of his life which he still regret. He accepted the offer of Lal Krishna Advani to contest from the New Delhi seat in the by-election of Lok Sabha against Congress party’s Rajesh Khanna. He was then running under Vimshottari dasha of Saturn-Saturn with a ‘Sadhe-Sati’. Saturn is Vargottama but it is in enemy sign. In Chara dasha it was the period of Virgo having his Atamakaraka. He lost the election with nearly 27,000 votes. In his own words “ So angry was Khanna with me for contesting against him that he never forgave me. Looking back, I regret my decision, which was more an emotional one,” said Shatrughan.
He became the Raja Sabha MP two times from 1996 to 2008. He was the union cabinet minister of Health and Family Welfare from January 2003 to May 2004 during his Saturn-Moon and Saturn-Mars dashas at the time of Atal Bihari Vajpayee government at the center. In the Saturn-Jupiter dasha in Vimshottari he won the Lok Sabha election from Patna Sahib seat in Bihar. Saturn and Jupiter both are Vargottama. In Dashamasha the Saturn is in the 9th house and Jupiter is the lord of 9th house of luck. In the next Lok Sabha elections in May 2014 he again won from Patna Sahib seat with record margin during his Mercury-Venus dasha in Vimshottari. Mercury and Venus, as discuss earlier, are both in a good Raja Yoga in the 7th house of public life. But Mercury is the lord of 12th house in Navamsha and Dashamsha which did not favor him much to give a ministerial berth in the cabinet of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Since Shatrughan Sinha is consider as a close associated of Lal Krishna Advani, the founder of BJP, with whom Modi didn’t have smooth relations so it was obvious that he was not given a cabinet post then.
Bitter relations with Modi and leaving the BJP
Shatrughan Sinha got annoyed with Modi and Amit Shah for not giving him post in the central government. He started criticizing autocratic style of both Modi and Amit Shah particularly after the BJP lost the Bihar assembly elections in November 2015. But Modi and Amit Shah played smartly as they did not ousted Shatrughan Sinha from the party despite his repeated rebellious statements. They deliberately resisted from taking any tough disciplinary action against Shatrughan Sinha so that he did not get any public sympathy. In March 2019 when Shatrughan Sinha was passing through Mercury-Mars-Jupiter he declared that he will join the Congress party.
Shatrughan Sinha Vs Ravi Shankar Prasad- who will win from Patna Sahib Lok Sabha Seat ?
Now when Shatrughan Sinha has formally joined the Congress party and contesting from Patna Sahib Lok Sabha seat at their ticket the BJP has put their senior leader Ravi Shankar Prasad, who also comes from Kayastha community, to give him a challenge. On the 19th of May the voting will be conducted at Patna Sahib for Lok Sabha elections. In transit Venus the lagan lord of Shatrughan Sinha will be in Aries in the 12th house. The 10th lord Saturn is already transiting from Sagittarius his 8th house, is it not the planetary signal of a loss? Rahu and Ketu are transiting at the 2/8 axis at their natal position with Mars joining them soon in Gemini which will afflict the 8th house of Shatrughan Sinha. His wife Poonam Sinha is contesting from the ticket of Samajwadi Party from Lucknow against union Home minister Rajnath Singh. Under this adverse dashas and transit both Shatrughan Sinha and his wife are likely to face a loss in the election battle field.
Shatrughan Sinha is running the anter dasha of Mars which is the lord of 7th house (wife) and 12th house (losses). Mars is debilitated in Rashi chart and in Navamsha it is in enemy sign. In Dashamsha it is falling in the 12th house of losses.
In Chara dasha the period of Gemini-Sagittarius is running from January 2019 to June 2019. Both dasha Rashi’s are 2/8 from the lagan and 6/12 from the Moon. Atamakaraka Jupiter aspect them and a malefic Rahu is also influencing these signs. Amatayakaraka Sun is in the 6th house from Gemini and in the 12th house of losses from the sub period sign Sagittarius. So a loss in the election looks like inevitable for both Shatrughan Sinha and his wife Poona Sinha which would be a big setback for them.
Horoscope of Ravi Shankar Prasad
30 August 1953, 04:40 hours at Patna, Bihar
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Moon 4 years 6 months and 15 days
Ravi Shankar Prasad is lawyer by profession. He is the minister of law and justice and Electronics and Information Technology. He made the mess of both ministries with his poor work ethics. He was not able to convince the Higher Judiciary for accepting National Judicial Appointment Commission which resulted in a crisis situation in the appointment of judges in India. As the minister of IT and Telecommunication his work was though somewhat better but Indian IT industry is struggling with lack of jobs for about which he do not seems to have any clue. Now see the horoscope of Ravi Shankar Prasad which is of Leo lagan and Aries Navamsha. The Vimshottari dasha of Saturn-Mercury is running from July 2017 to March 2020. Saturn is exalted in the 3rd house of valor and Mercury is with Sun in the ascendant in a good Dhana Yoga. In Navamsha Saturn and Mercury are in the 6/8 position but in Dashamsha their condition is improved tremendously. Saturn is with 5th lord Jupiter in Dashamsha and Mercury is in own sign Virgo. So Ravi Shankar Prasad looks all set to win against Shatrughan Sinha.
Notice the ‘Visha Yoga’ in the horoscope of Ravi Shankar Prasad now. The Saturn in Libra though exalted but it is in ‘Gandanta’. Moon and Saturn are in mutual aspects. Moon is the lord of 12th house of losses there. Mars which is in the 12th house in debliteated condition is giving aspect to the Saturn. It is a classical case of ‘Visha Yoga’. Although he secured two cabinet ministries for himself but his performance was below average only. He as the minister of law and Justice was a complete failure as more than 33 million backlog of cases are pending in Indian courts and there is no sight of much needed judicial reforms. The figure of pending court cases ( 33 crores in 2019) is at the highest since Independence and Ravi Shankar Prasad never seems to be bothered about it. As a telecommunication minister he was responsible for the losses of state owned PSU’s BSNL and MTNL which are now under accumulated losses of Rs. 90,000 crores.
BSNL will layoff 54,000 employees and MTNL will kick-out 12,000 after the Lok Sabha Elections 2019 thanks to the disastrous policies of BJP led government which supported Mukesh Ambani’s JIO openly without being ashamed. Reliance JIO and Paytm openly used the picture of Narendra Modi for their advertisement in News Paper though they later apologized for the same. But anyone with little wisdom, which is uncommon in India these days, can understand this that present government is clearly destroying the public sector companies to favor these private business entities who in return fund their expensive election campaigns.
Since Ravi Shankar Prasad is running with a better dasha of Saturn-Mercury in Vimshottari as compare to his opponent Shatrughan Sinha so he is likely to win the Lok Sabha Election from Patna Sahib. But his upcoming dasha of Saturn-Ketu from March 2020 to April 2021 and later Saturn-Venus ( April 2021 to June 2024) also will give him lots of controversies and humiliation. He will get only one cabinet ministry this time and in that also he will perform badly causing an embarrassment for the BJP. His Chara dasha of Leo with Ganatikaraka Mercury in it and Amatayakaraka Mars falling in the 12th house shows that he will not succeed as a cabinet minister and is going to attract controversies only. He will also face health troubles during 2020 to 2024 as the sub period of Ketu and Venus in the major period of Saturn shows. Both Ketu and Venus are in the 12th house getting the bad aspect of 7th lord (Maraka) Saturn.
