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...

Many thanks for referring to so many websites. Let me tell you briefly how now this horoscope is being used. I got it before 1990 and kept it a secret as I was asked to by a very very important man of India. In 1995 I predicted that BJP was unstoppable in a press conference at Houston (please see my book ASTROLOGICAL JOURNEY).1996 edition. In 1996 April I wrote in the Hindi Hindustan that he would be a PM but used a humorous expression “rokani” will be pleasant but marriage would be delayed. “Rokani” is engagement in northern India. He was PM for thirteen days. In 1996 in the book referred to, I said he would fight back and become PM . I repeated it in many newspapers that in 1998 he would come to stay as a PM for a longer period. In 1997, I used his horoscope openly in the Journal of Astrology which I edit without giving birth details. From there others got it for the first time and seems to be using it now.    

In the year 2000 a biography of his came out in Hindi giving these birth details with Vrischika lagna. After that I have been using all birth details as now it was not a secret anymore. I do not know why even now people argue about his year of birth being 1925 or 1926. It is futile and arrogantly perverse. Anyway my thanks to you again.

Respected Shri Rao,
The few search results I got, I came across the date as Dec 25, 1924.  I did not come across the 1926 in these.I found some sites use the Shri Vajpayee's horoscope with Vrischika Lagna. The following are some useful links:

2. (Shri PVR Rao's Astrological Discussion on Shri Vajpayee)
3. This web site uses a horoscope with Vrischika lagna without giving his date of birth
4. Dec 25, 1924

To believe how chasing the horoscopes of famous people or  celebrities is a futile method for gathering material for doing astrological research, go to the internet and find out the correct birth details of the former Indian Prime Minister, Atal Behari Vajpai. See some here:

Date of Birth - 25 December 1924 , Place of Birth - Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh) , Marital Status – Unmarried, Educational Qualifications - M.A. (Political Science)

Atal Bihari Vajpayee (The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition 2008 Columbia University Press)- Atal Bihari Vajpayee , 1926-, Indian politician, prime minister of India (1996, 1998-2004).

Atal Bihari Vajpayee (Britannica Concise Encyclopedia): Atal Bihari Vajpayee
(born Dec. 15, 1924, Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, India)

The Library of Congress Overseas Office: Atal Bihari Vajpayee, 1926-...Atal Bihari Vajpayee, born on December 25, 1926 in Bateshwar in Uttar Pradesh, is the Prime Minister

Now note that UK Jha has taken the Tula lagna horoscope of Atal Behari Vajpai in some issues of Saptarshi astrology twice, as a friend pointed out, in his discussion of Tara dasha and some other dasha to establish the validity of his research.

I will share with readers the bitterness of my experience with the horoscopes of India’s political leaders who deceive all astrologers, except their personal ones whom they consult. Except Morarji Desai and Charan Singh no prime minister gave, without hesitation, his horoscope to any astrologer if an astrologer asked for it. Morarji did say that he did not want any prediction and Charan Singh would be willing to discuss his horoscope if he was convinced that he was meeting a sound astrologer.

In the case of Atal Behari Vajpai he has himself passed on different birth details himself is what I know. In 1978 it was 1926, in 1986 it was 1924 and somewhere between these two years it was 1925. It is what politicians collected and gave me. Now remember this.... the claims of astrologers.

1) 25 Dec 1926 has been used by many and claimed to have given great and correct predictions about his political career but some with Tula lagna and some with Dhanu.
2) 25 Dec 1925 used by many and mainly by L.D.Madan who claimed to have given great and correct predictions but with Tula lagna.
3) 25 Dec 1924 used by many and claimed to have given great and correct prediction but some with Tula lagna or produced a research as U.K.Jha has done.
4) 25 Dec 1924 used by me with a record of correct predictions, but with Vrischika lagna and there are recorded and published predictions with one failed one also.

I got the birth details from someone in Gwalior and found that Vrischika lagna twenty one degrees showed his education in political science and some other events. What I have used is given in the biography of Atal Behari Vajpai in Hindi as shown here. The  book is Kavi Raj Neta of Chandrika Prasad Sharma page 35 Published by Kitab Ghar 24 Ansari Road, New Delhi 110092

Date of birth 25 Dec.1934 - Vrischika-1924 -1926, Tula-1926-1927, Kanya-1927-1936, Simha-1936-1944, Karka-1944-1952, Mithuna-1952-1958, Vrisha-1958-1964, Mesha-1964-1975 (in jail), Meena-1975-78 Meena Kanya in Cabinet of Morarji Desai of Janata govt. Kumbha-1978-1985, Makara-1985-1988, Dhanu-1988-2000 Dhanu Makar Amk in the tenth house and PM

SECOND ROUND – Vrischika-2000-2002, Tula-2002-2003, Kanya-2003-2012, Lost power but became leader of opposition which he relinquished in favor of Advani.

The relevant English translation is :  “Atalji was born in Brahma Muhurta in Shinde Chavani on 25 December 1924. In his school certificate the date mentioned is 25 December 1926. His father had got it done because the boy would be able to do a job for two more years.

Importance of the verification of bio facts
: I warn students that they should not proceed to work on any horoscope before verifying what I call the bio facts which means those indisputable facts without which accepting a horoscope is stupidity.

Which horoscope of Atalji shows seven siblings ? They were Avadh Behari, Sada Behari, Prem Behari then Atal Behari. He has an elder sister, Vimala is elder and Kamla and Urmila and it is not known whether they are elder or younger (p43 of the book).
Atalji had two elder brothers, Avadh Behari, Prem Bihari and three sisters.

Which horoscope shows his education in political science ? To illustrate with a wrong horoscope a so called research based on no verification of bio facts is an escapist approach dumping astrology into the abyss of ignorance. It is what is happening in the books on astrology now coming out and in the articles written for journals.

Prime Minister of India
Dwisaptati sama dasha: He became the prime minister in Mars mahadasha which is the tenth lord of the dashamansha and in the fifth house in the birth horoscope and in the antardasha of Sun which is the tenth lord of the birth horoscope and the position giving seventh lord in the dashamansha. Earlier in Sun-Mars he had become the minister of foreign affairs in the government in the cabinet of Morarji Desai in March 1977.

Vimshottari mahadasha: In Rahu Sun he became the prime minister of India in 1998. Earlier in 1977 when he became a minister it was the dasha of Mars-Rahu. And here Rahu in the ninth house gave him the portfolio of a foreign minister. This is how horoscopes are to be verified as I have stated in my instructions to students at the beginning of this article.


The horoscope of Atalji can be analyzed through the techniques discussed in the previous pieces in this series. Here only see that if the Karakamsha is put in Kumbha in the birth horoscope, you see in the ninth house Amk, Saturn, exalted in Tula giving him world fame and hight position. Additionally, Moon and Venus in the tenth house from KL is a big Jaimini promise.

And then there is an excellent eleventh house with Jupiter, Mercury and Sun from here. The AK comes under the influence of Venus and he is a poet. From KL Moon and Venus in the tenth house showed that appealing charmer which he had been for masses when he addressed public meetings.         

Atalji has been reduced to a vegetable now at the age of eighty five which is a long life. But why long life? The ninth lord well placed in the lagna, becomes the AK here increasing his longevity. Do you see why the Vrischika lagna given by me in various articles and now confirmed in his biography alone is correct? What about the correct predictions by others on the horoscopes they used and in their researches. Have you heard of guessologists?

From Swamsha

Amk, Saturn and DK Jupiter aspecting each other from the second and the fifth houses, gave him a chance to become a prime minister of India.   The Moon Venus mutual influences do show his poetic talent.

Dhanu Mesha
  From Dhanu Amatyakaraka is in the eleventh house and from Mesha aspects the eleventh house.But why was this such a short lived prime ministership?          

Let me quote what I had written on the jyotish list given earlier. “ In 1996 April I wrote in the Hindi Hindustan that he would be a PM but used a humorous expression “rokani” will be pleasant but marriage would be delayed. “Rokani” is engagement in northern India. He was PM for thirteen days. In 1996 in the book referred to, I said he would fight back and become PM . I repeated it in many
newspapers that in 1998 he would come to stay as a PM for a longer period.”

The spoil sports here is Gnathikaraka, Sun in the house of luck, ninth from Mesha and in Dhanu in the antardasha.
