Nitish Kumar and RJD Government

Navigation: Celebrity Astrology : Events

Shri Nitish Kumar took oath of office after winning the Bihar Elections with stupendous majority. The elections were won and fought in his name and Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi was not able to convince the voters of Bihar as well as Shri Nitish Kumar did. In the end, BJP is third largest party in the legislature. RJD is single largest party and JD(U) is second largest party. The following is an astrological analysis of the oath taking ceremony.

The details for the ceremony are as follows:

  • Date: 20-November-2015, Time: 14.03 Hours (verified through TV screen grabs)
  • Place: Patna City, Bihar
  • Panchanga for the day:
    • Vaar: Friday, Lord of the day is Venus
    • Tithi/Paksha: Shukla Paksha Navami Tithi, Rikta tithi and is unsuitable for auspicious work
    • Nakshatra: Shatabisha Nakshatra, Movable Nakshatra, Rahu is the nakshatra lord
    • Yoga: Vyaghata Yoga, Not good for auspicious work
    • Karana: Kaulava karana, good for maitri/friendship/partnerships

A look at the panchanga indicates that there is dosha, specifically in Yoga and to an extent in Nakshatra as well. A mridu or sthira nakshatra could have been better.

The horoscope is very interesting. The highlights are:

  • Lagna Lord Jupiter is in 6th house. Jupiter in 6th house indicates lots of negotiations/talks with adversaries. This may also indicate lack of aggression. Saturn is aspecting 6th house, but then Jupiter is far away from real, focused influence of Saturn. Jupiter aspects its own 10th house, which is positive. Jupiter aspects Moon, which is good for overall longevity of the government.
  • Rahu/Ketu axis is afflicting 1st and 7th house of self and partnerships
  • 7th Lord Mercury is between two krura planets Sun and Saturn. It is very close to Sun, but that can be considered Budhaditya yoga in 9th house. However Saturn’s presence in 9th house may actually be harmful to this yoga.
  • Ketu from lagna has almost 100% 9th house aspect on Sun, which is a matter of concern for the authority yielded by Sun. Ketu in Lagna is not a very good yoga. Look at Ketu’s degrees. It is almost at the ascendant.
  • There is a vipareeta-raja-yoga by the way of Sun (6th Lord) & Saturn (12th Lord) being almost conjunct in 9th house. In a raj-tilak ceremony, a presence of vipareeta raja yoga is extremely interesting!
  • There is a debilitated planet – Venus in 7th house of partnerships. Some would say that it will get neecha-bhanga since it is in kendra, it is unlikely though. It is also afflicted by Mars (aggression) and Rahu (confusion). Mars is also reasonably close to 8th house degrees from Moon. Venus is 8th lord too, which is indicative of longevity of this government.
  • Jupiter is watching over its own 10th house. However, Mars as a malefic is also aspecting it. This will always bring a level of uncertainty over the affairs of 10th house, which in Mundane astrology is responsible for the authority of the ruler.
  • Saturn is watching over its 11th house. The 11th house indicates the legislature itself. It indicates the policies that are being made for the general populace. It also indicates the ambitions of the people. Saturn is the lord of the masses. Hence, this government will be brazenly different from Mr. Modi’s government at the center as far as populist measures are concerned. If there is one factor that will define the tone of the government, this is the one.
  • 9th house hosts Sun (kroora planet, simultaneously 6th lord) and Saturn (paap graha, lord of 12th as moolatrikona Aquarius falls there). This is not a good sign for relationship with central government. It also indicates that opposition will not have good relationship. The government will not be able to do much in the area of higher education & science and technology.

Given the majority that this government enjoys, it will be foolish to predict any problems or breaking away of parties to allow for mid-term polls. There is ample support for the longevity of the legislature. The government will make good populist policies for the state subjects and will market it well. The focus will be on pure basics for extremely poor people – roads, electricity, employment generation, but the focus on higher education or major industrialization will be lacking.

I believe that this government will go through lots of pushes and pulls from within the constituents. The partnership is not going to be easy or stable. Also, there will always be a shadow and question over its authority. There will also be problems with judiciary in the state. Perceptions of lawlessness will make a comeback and will again be associated with Bihar. Emotionally (counting from Moon), the ruler (Shri Kumar) will always have problems with the in-laws of the government (Mars in 8th from Moon). This actually may create a situation where Shri Kumar walks away and the same legislature elects someone else as the leader and next chief minister of Bihar. More on that later.

Basic Interpretation of Horoscope as per Planetary Positions

Moon in Aquarius
Moon in Aquarius indicates that the janma rashi of the person is Aquarius and the person depicts the emotional nature associated with the sign.

On the positive note, this person is very creative and perceptive. The person’s intuition works in mysterious ways and he may be a good astrologer. This suits the person very much since he would also portray discipline denoted by the lord of the sign Saturn. Rules & conventions are not usually made for an Aquarius born.

On the health front, there could be problems with bones & muscle weakness in lower leg. This combination of Moon in Aquarius may be related to heart problems as well.

This person can work as a detective, a doctor or even a medium. He is great at creating long term plans and keeping cool while implementing them. On the negative side, the person would have problems with communication with others. This is also not a good position of Mercury for relationships. The person could keep deep secrets from even close family members. On the health front, this may manifest as speech disorders or problems with sexual drive.

Jupiter is in mitra-kshetra in Leo. This position of Jupiter in Leo imparts higher wisdom to the person. Material wealth also expands.
