KASHMIR (Updated)
Today, 5 August 2019 has become a historic day in our history as something which could not be done in 70 years has taken shape now. 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...

Each astrologer has his set of assumptions assimilated from his childhood days and, later from the surroundings which influenced him. The set of assumptions he has formulated affects his way of viewing reality and modifies his intellectual discipline. In the interaction between the astrologer and the persons coming to consult him, an intellectual or a mammon worshipper or a politician for whom sadomasochism is a necessary part of his living and thinking, new meaning of planetary combinations emerge out repeatedly. A realization dawns that Freudian theory of putting sexuality as most cherishable value of life or Darwinian sexual selection do dominate their thinking along with the religious genes buried beneath these two. Somewhere there is a desire to be an ‘achiever’ in the society of success worshippers but his life is sinking into unredeemable ordinary life like millions of people around him. He knows English, is in the thrall of the values of the post Christian West and its thinking, though himself he is an Indian. The question of his questions is will he become an “achiever”. How does an astrologer tackle his question? A young Indian once asked me whether he could become the Bill Gates of India and a young Pakistani whether he could be Mukesh Ambani of Pakistan. A high ranking police officer with a wry sense of humor used to say some years ago, when we discussed astrology, “young men these days want to become millionaires by next Monday.”


And you have now to face the modern educated women who flirts with careers and then with suitable lovers whom she changes at a pace slower than men. Her emotional drive tells her that her catch must be a prized one and her biological urges that it should not be too late in her journey to motherhood. At a later stage she faces the problem of balancing motherhood with a career. Then she grows fat and asks the astrologer after listening to television astrologers prescribing mantras for all problems, for mantras to reduce weight!  But here let me confine to the young man of ambition.                          

I solve this problem to some extent by looking at the meanings of Jaimini karakas combining or influencing each other. I replicate it if I find that I have arrived at a correct conclusion. Here is one such example.             


If Matrikaraka and Putrakarak form relationship in the birth horoscope,  through conjunction or aspect and, come under the influence of Mars or Rahu/Ketu such a person, if a ruler, becomes very assertive or even a dictator is a question that needs to be observed on many horoscopes. The influence of Jupiter or even a benefic, tones down the aggressiveness of malefics. Jupiter in this combination must not be the Matrikaraka or Putrakarak.


I observed this in the horoscopes of many Indian politicians and of course, in those of both Hitler and Mussolini, among well-known dictators, and of so many bureaucrats during my service career.

Some of these bureaucrats were hated by their subordinates for their obdurate decisions, their unreasonableness, their tactless behavior and remarks. Success is what they achieved because it became their sole aim in favorable periods.

My line of reasoning has been: Matrikaraka represents the seat of power while Putrakarak its dignity. Influence of Mars or RKA lends dictatorial tendency, rashness and even tactlessness.

Often, one of the karakas in this formation is Mars itself. Jupiter joining this combination, not as Matrikaraka or Putrakarak, makes it idealistic.

It is almost a repetition of the Parashari Rajyoga of the combination of the fourth and the fifth lord or Kendra and Trikona lords.

In the career of government officers, I found this observation unfailing. Even in a democracy like India, politicians in power, I have seen, show this tendency even in the brief period of their power holding.

More often than not, when this influences the partnership, marriage or friendship or relationship area, the tendency to be fiercely possessive was also observed by me. If it influences the fourth house, there can be the well-known problem with mother and mother in law, as is common in India. The ego of a possessive man, when it gets hurt, do you know what it is--- the hurt is rather deeper and unsettling. 

Among sportsmen, I have seen this in the horoscope of Saurav Ganguly. We know of his dominating presence on the cricket field when he was the captain of the Indian Test side and had his famous brushes with Steve Waugh and later, coach Greig Chappel.

A young Indian politician has this combination in his horoscope and he was in news in a very controversial way in the last Indian general elections.

Such people are temperamentally not suited to be democrats. They are totally ill adjusted till the demands of their ego are met fully or partly. If Mars joins this combination there is violent expression of their feelings which produces tension. In the absence of Mars, it continues still in subtler ways but never vanishes. Jupiter joining this combination gives it a sophistication and acceptability and even a tendency to be reconciliatory.

Apply these at-a-glance rules

Based on my research I have formulated the following rules for predicting the periods of good efforts and the periods of rise.

1.) When this occurs in 3/9 axis of a horoscope during the dasha operating, they make an effort to make a career or achieve something notable.

2.) When it occurs in a dasha from where it is the third or fifth house which gets the effects of MK and PK, it operates invariably is my observation.

3) When it operates on the 4th house which should have benefic planets or Rajyogas of Jaimini, and the fifth or the ninth or the tenth houses are supportive, it is a favorable period even for leaders fighting democratic elections or dictators capturing power through democratic or undemocratic methods.

4.) If the eleventh house is strong, the achievement can be of a higher nature.

5.) Taking a hint from the above at-a-glance analysis, astrologers must invariably go deeper to analyze varga charts etc. and other dashas and not stop here.

Precautionary Note

These are at-a-glance rules which should be applied initially but an important prediction should not be based on it. There are many other rules which I am not giving here not to make this at-a-glance approach cumbersome.     


In the horoscopes of young men where I find this combination, I have seen them pursue their careers aggressively, with enormous ambition and even, rashness. This is both a source of their achievements and upsets. I am giving this combination after observing it the horoscopes for many decades. Such people are what we call these days, “achievers”. They work hard to achieve their goals and become even overambitious.


Jaimini karakas and their influences in the vital areas of horoscope show the psychological side of a personality through subtlest hints. The dasha shows the time of their appearance, manifestation, fading and disappearance. In their lives come spells when they work hard to achieve their goals and have some notable achievements in favorable periods.


This is being discussed in the context of the rise of extremism all over the world after 11 September 2001 incident of New York.


Hate mongers like Winston Churchill, Herr Hitler, Benito Mussolini and ZA Bhutto will always have a common and identical approach in their life and politics. Themselves extremist and populist, they succeed in gathering madcap fringes of imperialists, chauvinists, jingoists, racists and fundamentalists through their oratory, demagogy mostly. It gathers momentum. They grow powerful enough to capture power. A stage is ready for them generally after a disastrous war and the terrible problems and humiliation a nation faces during and after a war. Discontentment, unemployment, strikes and national humiliation is what they exploit with their gift of the gab and gather committed admirers and large number of followers to capture power. In this game they make sure that the army is with them.


It is a common history of the world that after a war or an incident like September 11 of 2001 in USA, these movements gather strength grows popular, become formidable forces in their countries.


The “white man’s burden” (Rudyard Kipling’s poem) was the British imperialist credo. Winston Churchill was its extreme symbol in his opposition to India’s freedom and Mahatma Gandhi. Indian patriots had deftly changed into “white man is a burden.”


Pure Aryan race and the right of Germans to rule for one hundred years was the slogan of Hitler.  Lebensraum ("habitat" or literally "living room") was one of the major political ideas of Adolf Hitler, and an important component of Nazi ideology.”.... In Hitler's book Mein Kampf, he detailed his belief that the German people needed Lebensraum ("living space", i.e. land and raw materials), and that it should be found in the East.”


Revival of the ancient Roman Empire was Mussolini’s slogan and cause for rise. Unemployment, strikes and anarchical conditions in Italy of the twenties of the twentieth century was exploitable and he did it adroitly. Mussolini's slogan "to believe, to obey, to combat" symbolized the all-powerful dictatorship that defines a fascist state.


Islamic socialism was Z.A.Bhutto’s weapon in a country where Islamic fundamentalism had its roots deep enough for it to appeal. The humiliation of the defeat of Pakistan in the Indo-Pak war of 1971 opened out the opportunity for him to exploit with disgraced Yahya Khan stepping down and handing over power to him.

Common to all of them was dramatic speaking style in their demagogy.


After the First World War, fascism and communism rose in Russia (communism in 1917) Italy (fascism in 1922) and Germany (fascism in 1933). Nations like England, France, Spain and Portugal had their empires--all evil rules. Against them there had to be a popular freedom movements, which were noble in the colonies they ruled over, leading to rise of great men like Mahatma Gandhi.


The world is passing through a situation similar to post First World War. There is rise of Eurocentric racism against immigrants, mainly targeting Muslims and in many Muslim countries against non-Muslims. Samuel Huntington’s popularized theory of clash of civilizations (or barbarisms?) is threatening the world once again.


This should be kept in the mind in following the discussion of the horoscopes of:

          1) Winston Churchill

            2) Herr Hitler

            3) Benito Mussolini

            4) Zulfiquar Ali Bhutto

            5) Pervez Musharraf and

            6) Lal Bahadur Shastri
