KASHMIR (Updated)

Union Home minister Amit Shah has announced that Article 370 which grants special status to the state of Jammu and Kashmir will be scrapped. He also announced that Jammu and Kashmir will no longer be a state and it will be bifurcated into two Union Territories— Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh.  read more...
Is ours an ideal democracy!! Hardly so, it is far from being an ideal democracy; where there should be  two equal opponents, like Conservative and Labour party in Britain; like Republican and Democratic party in USA. As for India, for the two major parties here i.e. Congress and BJP there has never been a state of relative equilibrium. There was a time when Congress was all powerful for a long time, BJP had not come into existence then. BJP came into existence and gradually spread its wings and the status now of present election result on 23 May 2019 is that BJP alone bagged 303 seats and 353 seats along with its NDA Alliance. Congress on the other hand could muster only 52 seats; along with UPA, Congress got 91. Other parties won 98 seats. What to talk of equality, Congress party could not win even 55 seats which is the requisite 10 % to become the official opposition. read more...

Obama and McCain, the contestants for the Presidentship of the USA, have chosen their vice presidents (VPs). The electoral battle between the presidents has already been astrologically analyzed on 10th July 2008. There has been some debate on the birth details of the presidential contestants. In the US elections the President's ticket also carries the VP. The voting is for the President - the VP wins or loses with the president. This joint ticket means that one can analyse the horoscope of the VP and if the horoscope has the potential to win then the president, being on the joint ticket will also win.


In the US election of 2004 Shri KN Rao found Bush's VP - Dick Cheney's horoscope as a surer winner than John Edwards and confirmed the win of Bush. The examination of VPs horoscope helps one to overcome the infirmities in the birth details of main contestants.


It is proposed to examine the horoscopes of Joseph Biden and Sarah Palin to see their winnability on 4th Nov 2008. It is interesting to note that 47 years old Obama has chosen 72 year old Biden as his V.P. A 72 year old McCain, on the other hand has chosen a 44 year old Sarah Palin to be his VP. This is a chronologically balanced contest.


Joseph Biden, is the distinguished Senator from Delaware since January 1973. He was Chairman of the Senate Committee on Judiciary from 1987 to 1995 and of the Senate Committee on Foreign relations from 2001- 2003. He is a consensus builder and is known for his ability to excel in bipartisan politics. He admirably fills in the gaps in Obama's experience.


Sarah Palin is the Governor of Alaska, a sparsely populated, snow bound state. She is an outdoor person who loves hunting and fishing. She is fiercely anti-abortionist, has 5 children of her own. She stands for family values and total support to the family – she demonstrates it by standing up for her 5 month pregnant unmarried daughter. She is also bringing up a 4 month old child diagnosed with Down's syndrome. She opposes the gun control laws. She, at 44, brings in life, purpose and focus to a flagging Republican campaign. McCain has made an excellent choice.


Now the horoscopes. Our focus is on the winnability of the horoscope on 4th Nov 2008.


Joe Biden - 20th Nov 1942 8:30 hrs Scranton, PA

Joe Biden First: Scorpio rises in the ascendant. Moon is in Aries and Libra rises in the navamsha. His ascendant and the Moon sign lord Mars is in the 12th house. Mars the lagna lord has exchanged houses with 12th lord Venus. Mars is conjunct Mercury, the 11th lord and Venus is conjunct Sun the 10th lord. The ascendant is aspected by 4th lord Saturn retrograding in the 7th house and 5th lord Jupiter exalted in the 9th house. 10th lord Sun has the aspect of 4th lord Saturn and 5th house lord Jupiter and is conjunct 7th lord Venus - this getting together of 4,7,10 lords in the lagna has given to Joe Biden uninterrupted Senatorship since January 1973.

















He will be, on November 4, having Vimshottari Dasha of Jupiter - Jupiter – Rahu and Chara Dasha of Aquarius-Sagittarius-Leo.


The dasha is excellent. Jupiter his 5th lord from Ascendant and 9th Lord from Moon is in his 9th house from Ascendant. Jupiter is exalted and vargottama. Exalted planets in their dasha and antardasha given excellent results.


Note: Jupiter's placement in 10th house of navamsha. Rahu the pratyantar dasha lord is in Leo his 10th house bringing the victory on a silver platter.


Chara dasha is Aquarius-Sagittarius-Leo.

Aquarius is aspected by Darakaraka (Jupiter). Amatyakaraka Mars and Atmakaraka Mercury and Leo the pratyantar sign is the 10th house is aspected by Amatyakaraka and Atmakaraka and Leo is 11th from Mars and Mercury the Amatyakaraka and Atmakaraka - a win is on.


Now the transit for Joe Biden

 On 4th November the double transit of Saturn and Jupiter would influence Leo the 10th House. Saturn is transiting in Leo aspected by transiting Jupiter from Sagittarius. A prestigious job is on cards. His lagna lord Mars and 10th lord Sun will be transiting in Libra over his Atmakaraka and Amatyakaraka - success is visible. The strength of horoscope augmented by an outstanding dasha an excellent transit bodes well for the victory of Obama/Biden Ticket on 4th November 2008.


Sarah Palin - 11 Feb 1964 21:43 Sandpoint, Idaho  

The first look at the horoscope makes Mars catch your eye. It stands like a commander in the centre of a battle field where 3 planets Mercury, Moon and Sun are arrayed to the left and the other 3 Saturn, Venus, Jupiter are deployed to the right.


This Mars at 0 degree 15 minutes in Aquarius is very close to his deep exaltation point. This Mars, the eighth lord has very nearly overpowered the 6th lord Saturn, which is at 1 degree 52 minutes, by his close conjunction Mars and Saturn have generated a Vipreet Raj Yoga. This is not all.
















Take Sun now. Sun the 12th lord is at 29 degree 11 minutes in Capricorn, it is causing combustion to both Mars and Saturn and this combustion is giving a further fillip to the Vipreet Raj  Yoga as the 12th lord Sun also joins them. Mars, Sun and Saturn from 6th house make Sarah Palin a strong, winning competitor. Exalted Venus with Jupiter, the 7th lord in 7th house, adds luster to this horoscope.


We know that the lord and significator of any house anywhere in conjunction improves the quality of that house. This is happening in the 7th house with 7th lord Jupiter conjunct 7th

house significator Venus.


She is running Jupiter-Moon-Venus and Pisces-Virgo-Gemini on 4th Nov 2008. Jupiter as 7th lord is good for gaining position (Pad Prapti). Moon is the 11th lord of gains and Venus the 9th lord in 7th house generating a luck ordained push for the 'Pada' in the 7th house. This coupled with the blockbuster competitive power of the 6th house puts her in a winning situation.


Jaimini's Chara Dasha of Pisces-Virgo-Gemini gives a clearer indication. The Amatyakaraka planet Jupiter is in Pisces aspecting both Virgo and Gemini, from

Gemini the pratyantar dasha rashi the Amatyakaraka is in the 10th house indicating a winner.


Now the transit for Sarah Palin.

Jupiter Saturn double Transit. Leo is the rashi influenced by this transit. Leo in the 12th house does not hold much promise for a victory. Jupiter is transiting in Sagittarius in the 4th house on natal Ketu. This is a weak transit and could lead to deception. Palin has a fighters horoscope and a winning one. Transit is a shade weaker than Joe Biden.


Both Biden and Palin have outstanding horoscopes that can win on 4th November

2008. This has made the main contest nail bitingly close, which is how an election should be.



Both VPs are assets for the main contenders. The staid, solid, experienced Biden is an excellent foil for the articulate and younger Obama.


Sarah Palin has already boosted the Republican Party's election prospects. She is also an excellent choice. She is the one who has made this contest very close. One should bear in mind Bush's administration's poor record in economy and Iraq would adversely affect the McCain/ Palin bid. The present Wall Street melt down also does not augur well for this pair.


On 4th Nov 2008 we are in for a nail biting finish. We may, with dollops of luck, see an Afro-American walking into the white house.


Risk has been taken. I am tempted to requote Bhagwan Budha "It is better to travel well than to arrive".
