As per the classical text of Hindu Astrology ‘Saturn’ is ‘Krishaka’ i.e. farmer, and is the main significant of agriculture. Moon is vegetation and if it get associated with Saturn at the 4th and/or 10th houses/lords then it can make one a famous agriculturist. In the horoscope of farmers leaders the significant role of Saturn and Moon has been invariably found. I had discuss the horoscope of Mr. Rakesh Tikait in my story published on the website of Hindi News Paper Navbharat Times on the 1st of February 2021. In that article i had forecasted success for him in the ongoing farmers protest at that time which later came true on the 19th of November 2021 when Prime Minister Modi revoked the three farm bills and apologized to the people of India in his address to the nation. In this post the horoscope of Rakesh Tikait will be discussed in more details as the farmers have currently suspended their agitation and may again create trouble for the government if they do not bring a law to guarantee minimum support price (MSP) for farm produce.
I have given above the link of my article published on the 1st of February (Hindi) and 16th of January (English) 2021 in which i had forecasted the possibility of a long farmers agitation and the laws being revoked by the government later on. The conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn sign was a very significant astrological event for the agriculture reforms in India. In 1962 when these two planets were in conjunction in the Capricorn sign then India was facing acute shortage of food grains and was forced to adopt modern agriculture methods to increase its agriculture yield. At Pusa Agriculture Research Institute in Delhi agriculture scientises had then started working on the new varieties of wheat and rice to increase the harvest. These experiments were started after 1962’s Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn which as per Brihat Samhita is the sign of agriculture produce. The policy of Green Revolution was implement after the success of these experiments in 1968 by then prime minister smt. Indira Gandhi. Farmers from Punjab, Haryana and UP got the maximum benefits of green revolution as most of their produce was directly purchased by the government for PDS (Public Distribution) schemes. But then these farmers were become heavily dependent on the minimum support price offered by the government and they failed to implement crop diversification on their lands. While the farmers in states like Gujarat, Maharashtra and Karnataka started yielding more benefits in the last two decades as they shifted to cash crops like cotton, sugar-can, oil seed, pulses and spices.
Now the issue to bring in a legal guarantee for MSP (minimum support price) has become a bone of contestation between the farmers organizations, government and also corporates which want market forces to decide the prices of farmers produce. The minimum support price is necessary as when farmers harvest comes into the market the prices drops which can bring losses for farmers for which they need some indemnity. Now in this context see the given below horoscope of Mr. Rakesh Tikait who has become the face of farmers movement in India in the last one year.
Horoscope of Rakesh Tikait
4 June 1969, 10:00 hours at Baghpat, UP (77 E 17′, 27 N 57′) with balance of 9 years 1 months 26 days of Moon dasha.
The Cancer lagna horoscope given above is of Rakesh Tikait who is the son of famous farmers leader late Chaudhary Mahinder Singh Tikait who was co-founder of Bharitiya Kissan Union (BKU) a prominent farmers union. Rakesh Tikait’s elder brother Naresh Tikait is the current national president of BKU. In the Cancer lagna horoscope of Rakesh Tikait Saturn as the 7th lord is in the 10th house along with 4th lord Venus. This is prominent yoga for having major farm land holdings. Moon as the lagna lord is in the 7th house of public life which had given him a long career as a farmer leader in the Wester UP earlier and now at the national stage. The 9th lord Jupiter is in the 3rd house giving aspect to the lagna lord Moon, 9th house and also Sun. This yoga shows his linage from a famous father who was a national level farmers leader at his time.
Saturn aspect the 12th house from its 3rd aspect and Mars also aspect the 12th house from its 8th aspect which is an inauspicious yoga in his chart giving him imprisonment for short duration on many occasions during farmers movement and also couple of losses during elections in 2007 and 2014.
Struggle in Maha Dasha of Jupiter which is in enemy sign
Rakesh Tikait tried to make a career into polities during his Jupiter maha dasha which ran from 2003 July to 2019 July but he failed badly as he lost two elections with big margin’s. Jupiter is in enemy sign Virgo and in Navamsha it is in its sign of debilitation so it was no surprise that its dasha gave him struggle. A planet which is in its enemy sign in Rashi and debilitated in Navamsha or vice versa can give bad results during its maha dasha especially in the anter dashas of “Dusthana’ lords. Saturn also comes under such condition as it is in its sign of debilitation and is in its enemy sign Cancer in Navamsha. But Saturn maha dasha gave him immense fame and success as the repealing farm laws was also widely covered by international media.
Saturn Maha Dasha of Rakesh Tikait
In the horoscope of Rakesh Tikait Saturn as the 7th and 8th lord comes under an exception. As per a rule given in Phaladeepika Saturn is fulfilling a ‘Neecha Bhanga’ i.e. cancellation of its debilitation condition. It has been observed that for this kind of ‘Neecha Bhanga’ Yoga to get fruitify the lagna and Moon has to be strong, otherwise the dasha of such debiliteated planet can give server illness also. In case of Rakesh Tikait Saturn as the 8th lord is debiliteated and is associated with a natural benefic planet Venus. The association Saturn with its ‘Uccha Nath’ (exaltation sign lord) is a ‘Neecha Bhanga Yoga’ as per Phaladeepika. Saturn is the Moon sign lord and it aspect the Moon which is another good Yoga as per ‘Chandra Yoga Adhyay’ of Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra. Saturn as the lord of Navamsha lagna aspect the Navamsha lagna which is also a good Yoga for giving fame.
In Dashamsha chart Saturn is the lord of 5th and 6th house house and is strongly placed in the 11th house which is a yoga for getting gains in competition from the enemies. As per Jaimini system the Chara Dasha of Capricorn is running from June 2020 to June 2029 which is auspicious for Rakesh TIkait as Amatayakaraka Mars, Atamakaraka Sun and Bhatrikaraka Mercury are giving Jaimini aspect to this Rashi. Saturn-Saturn-Jupiter period in Vimshottari from 8th of March 2022 to 2nd of August 2022 indicate that he may gain start protests against the government to make law for giving legal guarantee the MSP. The central government has currently formed a committee to give its suggestion on the matter of enforcing legal guarantee for MSP. As per my understanding the central government will pass the burden to legalized MSP on the state governments as the constitution of India mention ‘agriculture’ as a state subject only.
In that scenario it is highly likely that farmers may again stage protests anytime after April 2022 as the coming Hindu New Year horoscope for India also suggest such public protest movements. The matter of MSP is not likely to get resolve until 2024 when the general elections are schedule to be held in India.
In the horoscope of Rakesh Tikait the Vimshottari dasha period of Saturn-Saturn-Jupiter from 8 March 2022 to 2 August 2022 indicate his involvement in some another farmers protest movements. The subsequent dasha of Saturn-Mercury from 2 August 2022 to 11 April 2025 has indication for imprisonment. Mercury as the 12th lord is in conjunction with 2nd lord (Maraka) Sun. In Navamsha Mercury is the lord of 6th house and is placed in sign of malefic Mars. In Dashamsha Mercury is in the 8th house which is not auspicious. So he may get arrested for a short duration any time during 2022 or 2023 as per the running maha dasha of Saturn in his chart which aspect the 12th house of imprisonment.
However, in the long run Rakesh Tikait is likely to get huge success for his farmers movements. He will surely be able to achieve his most of the goals set during this current farmers movement and will also get international fame for his public protest movements. In Saturn maha dasha and Ketu anter dasha April 2025 to May 2026 and also during Saturn maha dasha and Venus anter dasha from May 2026 to July 2029 his career as a farmers leader will be at its peak. Ketu is along with 9th lord Jupiter in the 3rd house and Venus is the lord of 11th house well placed in the 10th house of fame. He will win some major international award for his work as an activist any time before the Saturn-Venus dasha ends in July 2029.
