State of Madhya Pradesh was at time among the poorest region of India struggling with underdeveloped infrastructure and lawlessness. It is still ranking low in terms of Human development index but undoubtedly it is on the path of development now ever since the BJP has came into power in this state in 2003. Now the astrological indicators in the horoscope of Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shiv Raj Singn Chauhan’s horoscope are pointing out the fall of BJP. So there emerges a question who will be the next CM of this state? The horoscope of Kamal Nath is strong but it is the horoscope of Jyotriditya Scindia that looks more promising.
Shiv Raj Singh along with Raman Singh is perhaps the most successful chief minister ever given by the BJP. Lot of people may argue that Narendra Modi’s stint as the Gujarat chief minister was much better than what Shiv Raj Singh has done for Madhya Pradesh and Raman Singh for Chattisgarh. But they must not forget the fact that Gujarat rank poorly in Human Development Index . Interestingly if we read Mahatama Gandhi’s ‘My experiences with truth’ to find that Gujarat and its people were very much open to the new ideas even in the 19th century. Mahatama Gandhi has clearly mention in his book that the Gujarati’s peoples were traveling in large numbers to the UK and South-Africa to do business and study law in the 19th century. At that time people from Punjab were going abroad to pretty jobs and menial work. It was no surprise that Gujarat and Maharashtra were the most industrialized state after Indian independence. On that other hand Madhya Pradesh was counted among the ‘BIMARU’ (sick) states.
If we study the history we will find that it was from the coronation of great Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji in 1674 that this region of Maharashtra and Gujarat came under the Hindu nationalist rulers. Later the Peshwa’s of Pune dominated the Indian sub continent in the 18th century with the help of great Maratha generals until the British defeated them in the ‘Third Anglo-Maratha war ( 1805-1818) ‘. The Peshwa’s had done lots of good work for the farmers of the western region of India with the huge money they collected in form of ‘Chauth and Sardeshmukhi’ (taxes) from other parts of the country. Because of it this area was more prosperous than the other parts of the country and it had better irrigation facilities for the farmer to grow cash crops. So after independence the chief ministers of Gujarat and Maharashtra has got the advantages of a much develop infrastructure and prosperous business community of this region.
But it was the media hype that created a perception that Narendra Modi as the chief minister of Gujarat had made this state develop in his 13 year rule. Whereas the reality is far different than the picture of Gujarat Model painted by the BJP. Those who are interested in facts and figures can go through the link given below for more details;
Now let us come to the study of horoscopes of the chief minister candidate in Madhya Pradesh to get back to astrology.
Horoscope of Shiv Raj Singh Chauhan
5 March 1959, 11:54 hours at Sehore , Madhya Pradesh
Longitude 77E 05’ and Latitude 23N 12’
Balance of Dasha in Vimshottari: Sun 4 years 2 months and 13 days
Jupiter is the lord of 11th house (gains) in the 7th house of ‘Pada-Prapati’ in the horoscope of Shiv Raj Singh Chauhan. The sub period lord Ketu in the 11th house along with lagna lord Venus and the 5th lord Mercury is involve in a good Raja Yoga. Shiv Raj Singh’s work as the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh was highly appreciated and his popularity grew fast due to the good dasha of 11th lord Jupiter in his chart. He helped BJP win twice in the assembly polls in 2008 and 2013 with his clean image as the chief minister. But then came the maha dasha of Saturn in May 2014 with ‘ Vyapam Scam’ tarnishing the image of Shiv Raj Singh accusing him of corruption and nepotism in ‘MP state professional examination scandal’. The Saturn as the 9th and 10th lord falling in the 8th house from the Janma lagna and the 12th from the natal Moon of Shiv Raj has to give him hard time. But thanks to the strong BJP government at the center Shiv Raj Singh managed an escape and saved his position despite a grueling media campaign against him in ‘Vyapam case’. Notice the position of dasha lord Saturn in the 12th house with Rahu which weaken his position as the dasha proceeded. The Congress, which was marginalized in state, has now gathered itself under the leadership of stalwarts like Kamal Nath and Digvijay Singh with the rise of young Jyotiraditya Scindia who was recently elected as the chairman of Congress party campaign committee in Madhya Pradesh.
Shiv Raj Singh will be under Saturn-Mercury-Rahu dasha in Vimshottari from 20 November 2018 to 16 April 2019 the period when the assembly elections are expected to take place. The sub period lord Mercury is debliteated in Rashi but is well placed in Navamsha in the ascendant. Mercury as the 5th lord in Rashi chart can give ‘Pada-Chuti’ (fall from power) so is the sub-sub period lord Rahu which is in the 5th house itself. The 5th house is 8th from the 10th house. It has been observed when the maha dasha and the transit is unfavorable the bhukti of 5th lord then become potent to give fall from power. The maha dasha of Saturn placed in the 8th house from lagna and 12th in the Navamsha is not a comforting feature. The transiting Saturn from Sagittarius is also bad for Shiv Raj Singh Chauhan as the Saturn being the 10th lord of his Rashi chart transiting from the 8th house is an indication of losing position.
Madhya Pradesh has now become a ripe case of anti-incumbency as people are now fed-up with 15 years of BJP rule. The farmer and unemployed youth are now asking questions to Shiv Raj Singh about his performance and they are ready to explore other options.
Horoscope of Kamal Nath
The above given Pisces (Meena) lagna horoscope is of senior Congress leader Kamal Nath who is president of Madhya Pradesh Congress committee. He was minister in the cabinet of prime minister Narsimha Rao and Manmohan Singh earlier. He has close ties with Nehru-Gandhi family. He was close friend of Sanjay Gandhi, the eldest son of Indira Gandhi, from his school days at Doon School in Dehradun. He got married on 27 January 1973 when he was passing through Rahu-Saturn dasha in Vimshottari ( June 1972 to April 1975). Rahu is receiving the aspects of 7th lord Mercury and Venus the karaka for spouse. The sub period lord Saturn is the lord of Navamsha lagan amply explaining his marriage during its dasha.
In May 2014 general elections when Congress party was disseminated to only 44 seats in Lok Sabha and most of its big leader had lost election it was Kamal Nath who had won convincingly from his constituency Chhindwada in Madhya Pradesh. He was then going through the dasha of Saturn-Mars in Vimshottari. Mars is Vargottama 9th lord in his horoscope. The Congress made Malika Arjuna Khadge the leader of its party in Lok Sabha despite the fact he is weak in Hindi. The Kamal Nath despite being the senior most Congress leader in Lok Sabha was not given this responsibility deliberately so that he may not outshine Rahul Gandhi whom his mother Smt. Sonia Gandhi wanted to see as the next prime minister. Kamal Nath is the most experience Lok Sabha member from the Congress party but he has not been given any important responsibility in recent times. His current Vimshottari dasha of Saturn-Jupiter from October 2017 to May 2020 is promising. But since Jupiter is falling in the 8th house so he may not get the top post of chief minister in Madhya Pradesh for some reason.
The maha dasha of 4th lord Mercury placed in the 9th house is starting from May 2020 looks more promising. Mercury is in own sign in the Navamsha chart. So a big rise in career is expected in the dasha of Mercury which will be at full bloom when Ketu sub period will start from October 2022. After October 2022 he can get some very high status in his political career.
In Jaimini Chara dasha the period of Sagittarius-Pisces is running from July 2018 to May 2019. The Amatayakaraka Saturn falls in the 8th house from Sagittarius and aspect the 12th house from it which is not good. The Pisces is the sign of Karakamsha which get the aspect of Ganatikaraka Moon showing intrigues and controversies. He was recently got into trouble when a video become viral in which he was allegedly asking his party workers to get 90% Muslim votes for Congress to make sure its victory in Madhya Pradesh assembly elections.
