Very good perspective
Respected KN Rao Garu
This is what I wrote in the Jyotishgroup on Jan 29, 2010. Research on ex-post events such as these offer important predictive hints of the future that is potentially unfolding.
Egypt and Mubarak
President Mubarak came to power as President on October 7, 1981, when Saturn was in Virgo at 19 degrees. Now Saturn is around the same degrees. With Jupiter in Pisces this time rather than Virgo, it is clearly a bad transit. He was born on May 4, 1928. I am inclined to give him Gemini lagna, although there could be other possibilities. In his current Venus dasa and Mercury bhukti and Shani transit, it appears his end is close if not imminent. I am basing my analysis not on his lagna, but other factors. Take a look at Egypt's Chaitra shukla pratipada chart for 2011. This falls on April 3, 2011 with Leo lagna, events get crystal clear. To me it appears that President Mubarak's bad time will become worse After April 3, 2011 and even bad after June 10, 2011. It appears that he will have a tough time hanging on to power in summer 2011. The great Saturn will deliver its verdict on his presidency before Shani moves to Swati nakshatra sometime for sure in 2012.
