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...

In this piece NEXT THREE MONTHS ...VISIBLE SOCIO-POLITICAL TRENDS, with reference to the Karka Surya veedhi chart, it was written that ....

“Of immediate interest to us is also the second house here, with Mars and retrograde Mercury aspected by retrograde Jupiter from the sixth house; whereby Jupiter is the seventh and tenth lord. The question is that will the tax raids go on incessantly for the next three months? Today (18 July 2019) TV channels have been showing prominently the tax raids on houses of UP Dalit leader Mayawati and two of her relatives. It is likely that this trend will continue for next few months. The opposition will cry and call it victimisation. “

Three planets placed in the second house aspected by Jupiter in the sixth house and aspected by Moon in the eighth house; the combination showed the cases of tax evasion to come out in the open. Few days after this piece appeared, the sensational high profile case of P. Chidambaram came up. No less sensational was the summons of ED to Raj Thakare of Maharashtra Nirman Sena.

But the case of Chidambaram occupied the nation’s attention. Along with Chidambaram is the case of his son Karti Chidambaram. Coming back to the case of Chidambaram, many people remember that during his tenure as Home Minister of India in 2010 he was said to have floated the word ‘Saffron Terrorism’. The image of Chidambaram that got projected was that of a sycophant of a powerful lady in Congress party. The horoscope of Chidambaram available to us is not confirmed as yet. This horoscope explains certain events of his life very well and the present turn of events leading to his fall from grace and the enormous danger that he is facing of legal punishment.

P. Chidambaram, the former Union Finance Minister has been arrested for money laundering investigation in a dramatic way on the night of 21 Aug 2019 around 9:45 PM from his residence in Jor Bagh Delhi; where the CBI team had to climb the walls to get inside as the gates happened to be locked. The one who climbed the wall was CBI Deputy Superintendent of Police R. Parthasarathy, the same man who arrested Karti one and a half years back from the Chennai airport. After two days of anonymity, Chidambaram had suddenly appeared on TV in a Press Conference from Congress HQ, to declare that he had not been hiding for the past so many hours, it was just protection he was seeking and the commotion followed. The next day he was handed over to the CBI on a four day remand.

The case against him is a money laundering case of high magnitude; it pertains to the alleged irregularities in the  Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) clearance granted to the INX Media group for receiving overseas funds of Rs 305 crore in 2007 which took place during Chidambaram's tenure as finance minister.
CBI had registered FIR on 15 May 2017 for irregularities in FIPB clearance granted to INX Media group. Then Enforcement Directorate filed a money-laundering case in the same year.

During the court proceedings of INX Media case, it was reported that Indrani Mukerjea had mentioned the name of P. Chidambaram in some matter. Later, when the details came out, it came to be known that when Indrani Mukerjea and her husband had gone to P. Chidambaram, the then Finance Minister of Central government, for some help; he asked them to help his son Karti Chidambaram in his business.

"CBI has recorded statement of (INX Media cofounder) Indrani Mukerjea, which will be tested in the trial, that she and her husband Peter had gone to Chidambaram for FIPB (Foreign Investment Promotion Board) approval and he (Mr
Chidambaram) had asked them to take care of his son,"
Now, INX case is almost getting decided and the figuring of the name of Chidambaram in that case clearly proves the case against him with the CBI in the month of August 2019.

In those cases, some overseas transactions were involved and many shell companies figured, thus if it is clearly proven that Chidambaram was directly involved in those cases, the punishment given to him will be very harsh.

Then there is Nalini Chidambaram, the wife of P.Chidambaram, the daughter of former Supreme Court judge Justice (Retd.) P.S. Kailasam. Nalini herself is a senior advocate practicing in the Madras High Court and in the Supreme Court. Her name had surfaced in the Saradha chit fund scam, when the CBI charge-sheeted her for allegedly accepting a bribe of Rs 1.4 crores.

As for Karti, the son, he was charged for being the secret owner of companies in Aug-Sep 2015; booked for cheating and corruption on 16 May 2017; arrested by CBI on 28 Feb 2018 for direct investment of 305 crores and kept in custody for about 23 days. On 11 Oct 2018, ED seized his properties worth 54 Crores INR in India, UK and Spain.

We as astrologers are interested in discussing the case through the proper horoscopes of father and son. The one that I have with me of the son first and later the father are not confirmed as correct and reliable yet they are given here and an attempt is being made to arrive at a clear picture.

JOA Article Karti Chidambaram
The horoscope of Karti Chidambaram 16 Nov 1971 / 14:10 / Madras with Meena lagna is being used here. Here, we can see three planets in the ninth house with ninth lord Mars in the twelfth house. Saturn is aspecting three planets in ninth house and ninth lord in twelfth house. Besides that, 2L Mars in 12H in mutual aspect with Saturn shows links of foreign business of Karti Chidambaram. In all these, the involvement of the 9L, his father; planets in the 9H connected to 12H become very clearly visible. The dasha is also related to 9H through position, aspect and conjunction. Last year when he was arrested by the CBI, it was the dasha chidra of Saturn-Jupiter-Venus where Saturn is retrograde, in mutual aspect with Mars in 12H; Saturn is in Bandhan yoga with Rahu; Saturn is aspecting ADL Jupiter (connection of lagna and 12H); Saturn is aspecting PDL Venus which is the 8L at the same degree as 4L Mercury. 

Look further and in dashmansha, Saturn is retrograde debilitated fourth lord in the sixth house of punishment, aspecting debilitated ADL Jupiter, aspecting twelfth house. In dashamsha, one can see the money giving planets, along with the 9L of father, placed on the 3/9 axis involving the house of father, giving him immense wealth.

JOA Article P_Chidambaram
Let us go from son’s horoscope to father’s horoscope. The available but unconfirmed horoscope of P. Chidambaram we have is of 16 Sep 1945 around 11 PM with Vrishabh lagna.

At present Saturn-Moon is running. What will strike the eye at once !!
Eighth Moon both in the horoscope of the father and the son. It is not a case of any sexual scandal; but a national scandal now hitting the national headlines. Stri Jatak by B. Suryanarain Rao clearly says that Moon placed in the eighth house gives scandals.

In the horoscope of the father, three planets in the 2H, aspected by two from 8H; two planets in the 5H aspecting 11H; this is the promise of enormous wealth. Except Venus, all planets are connected to wealth giving houses. For that matter Venus also as lagna lord is aspecting the 9H of luck. We know that he was born in a rich family of Chettiars. Born with a little balance of Venus mahadasha, came Sun dasha, Sun placed in 5H, in exchange wih fifth lord forming a rajyog, forming a Rajlakshan yog with Jupiter. Then came the mahadasha of Mars, the 12L aspecting the 5H from the 2H; he went to study abroad. Then came Rahu dasha again in the 2H of wealth. This was followed by mahadasha of Jupiter in the laxmi sthan, expanding his wealth. Now, it is Saturn-Moon; both planets at 2/8 axis.

JOA Article chidambaram_saptamsa
Also note that six of his planets viz. Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn and Rahu, are in Ayudh drekkana. Venus is the lagna lord which is placed in Sarp drekkana; so obviously he had to get stuck in a tight corner at some stage in his life.

I would like to refer to the book “Ages of 36 and 72 Significant and Critical”, published in Nov 2014, where 108 examples of significant changes in the 36th and 72nd year of life have been given. Chidambaram has completed 73 years of age now. With mahadasha of Saturn and antardasha of Moon, both along 2/8 axis, it has to bring an important turn in his life. Rahu in transit is over his natal Rahu. Jupiter in transit has moved over the natal Jupiter. In his antardasha of eighth Moon, many scandals of his life have to come in the open; it is a situation where his reputation has suddenly sunk very low. As it is nearly nearly 9-10 years ago, he had acquired a dreadful reputation for his antiHindu actions. Added to that the present raid on his house on the solid base of unauthorized financial transactions by his son through his aid as former Finance Minister are well known. Against this background, with this case being heard in the Supreme Court, what are the astrological indications about the future. The dasha of Saturn in the second house, conjunct with a malefic, conjunct with the 7L Mars, what will it bring for him !!  More so when the antardasha lord is more afflicted by the transiting Saturn and Ketu over it.

Chidambaram’s Saptamsha
In 2007 when Sat-Sat was his dasha, in his saptamsha of Kumbha lagna, lagna lord Saturn was placed in 11H of gains with 8L Mercury, showing the secret gains for the son. Following antardasha of Mercury, he prospered. Saturn being lagna lord and 12L, foreign connection is evident. When Venus AD came on 29 Aug 2014, Saturn and Venus at 6/8 from each other, the problem started for him and later in Saturn-Sun, he was taken into CBI custody for 23 days.

Dasha of AK
Note that Chidambaram is running the mahadasha of Saturn, which is the AK for him. As for Jatak Tatvam, dasha of the AK is said to give fall; it is not specified if the dasha of AK is to be used in Char dasha only or we can extend it to vimshottari dasha and understand fall if the dasha running is of planet which is AK.
“During the Bhukti of the Atmakaraka planet, a fall from one’s position and loss may be expected.” (Jatak Tatvam; Translation by V. Subramaniam

JOA Article Chidambaram_varshaphal_74
Ashtam Chandra
Moon is in the eighth house for both father and son. Moon in the eighth house is not a very desirable position to be in. “If the Moon is in 6th, 8th or 12th house from the ascendant and is aspected by malefic planets, then the native’s death may occur soon. Even the retrograde benefics are death giving like the Moon, when they are aspected by malefic planets. If the ascendant does not have the aspect of a benefic planet on itself, the child will die within a month from the birth.” (Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra)

At the same time, at another place in Brihat Parashar Hora Shastra only, it is mentioned that for an ill placed Moon (in 6/8/12), for a night birth if Moon is in Shukla paksh (and vice versa), Mother Goddess shall save the baby. In case of Chidambaram this is exactly the case, inspite of having a vile combination, he has the saving, the protection in his horoscope and he is about to complete 73 years of age now. Albeit with the mahadasha of Saturn in the second house and antardasha of Moon in the eighth house, what will be future is for us to see.

More about Moon
Moon is the third lord; Moon is BK; implying shifting, small journey, also hathkadi i.e. wrists in chains; in the kodand rashi of Jupiter; when Jupiter is GK, it has to bring some trouble. For P. Chidambaram, his Moon is at RKA, aspected by Mars and Saturn (note the degree closeness of Mars and Rahu); giving him a badly afflicted Moon; whose antardasha is on.

From Moon and from Dhanu rashi, Jupiter is the fourth lord and Moon is the eighth lord. Dhanu is so badly afflicted; aspect of two malefics Rahu and Mars; aspect of AK Saturn, GK Jup and DK Sun. Sthir dasha pratyantar of Dhanu shall start soon, which shows difficult times ahead.

Significant age of 72 years
At around the ages of 36 and 72 years, significant changes happen in a person’s life. Chidambaram has completed 73 years of age; Rahu in transit is over his natal Rahu now; Jupiter in transit has already crossed his natal counterpart. Yogini mahadasha of Rahu has just started in July this year. Rahu is in paap kartari in the second house; from Rahu we have an exchange of the third and fourth lord; aspected by the sixth lord of punishment so it looks like he would not be spared. From Rahu, sixth and eighth lords Mars and Saturn are forming a paap kartari for his Rahu, which is not very positive for him.

Annual horoscope of Completed 73 years
Vimshottari dasha lords Saturn and Moon both are in the twelfth house of confinement, in the kodand rashi Dhanu; where twelfth lord Jupiter is in the tenth house with tenth lord Venus aspecting the fourth house.

Muntha is in Gemini in the 6H of punishment. Munthesh Mercury, 6L cum 9L, of punishment and justice is in the 8H of grief, aspected by Mars, showing that a strict action is to be expected.The twelfth lord Mars is in the fourth house, this is confinement or running away! Now, we look further; Moon is the third lord in the twelfth house showing chains and confinement.

Muntha is in 3H and it is the munthesh Moon placed in the 12H. Mars is the 12L of confinement placed in the 4H. Many planets in the 5H aspected by Saturn from the 8H show his extreme tension; 4L Sun is with 6L of punishment Venus which is debilitated; all kinds of means to fight will be used. Aspect of retrograde Saturn is the decision by the court of law.

Order given for remand
The horoscope of the time when the order was given to send Chidambaram to a four day remand with CBI is interesting. Dual malefic influence of Saturn and Mars on lagna shows the strong action taken. Note DK Sun in its own house, aspected by Amk Moon showing the dignitary; conjunct with GK Venus shows the dignitary involved in trouble because of the decision of the court advising interrogation.

Jupiter in 10H is the action done in the interest of people; though frenzy is clearly visible by the aspect of Mars. In July 2010, same treatment was meted out to Amit Shah when Chidambaram was the Home Minister, 2 years he was barred from entering Gujrat. In 2015, a special High Court relieved him of all the charges. Now it is 2019, Amit Shah is the Home Minister and the difference is that perhaps there is ample proof against Chidambaram.

In the navamsha, Sun in 8H is the DK which is a  government official in trouble. Mercury conjunct with debilitated Jupiter in the 4H with the lordships of 3, 6, 9 and 12 houses shows he has been cornered and aspect of Mars on this conjunction once again shows the frenzy of the government to clean up the system.
