This Vedic astrology article is inspired by the fact that Narendra Modi has led the BJP to an unprecedented electoral victory in the General Elections of 2014 in independent India where a political party other than the Congress has for the first time come to power through a clear majority in the House of the People, and is the Prime Minister of India in waiting. From tea vendor to the Prime Minister- it can only be the planetary configurations of destiny and the greatness of the democratic constitutional polity of India, that have led to this miracle, routing the Indian National Congress in the process.
Narendra Modi was born in extremely humble circumstances on September 17, 1950 in Vadnagar, Gujarat, India. On this there is no dispute. The number 17 adds up to 8 and in Vedic numerology indicates the major influence of the planet Saturn/ Śani/ Shani in life.
The Rāśi Chakra/ Rashi Chart of Narendra Modi is extracted below for ready reference-
The Lagna/ Ascendant is Vṛṣcika/ Vrishchika/Scorpio which is self-evident from his personality. The Lagna shows the self and the personality and circumstances surrounding the self. Scorpio has a round face and so does Narendra Modi. The fact that the lord of Scorpio, Maṅgala, Mangala/ Mars is placed in the Lagna itself and forms the Ruchaka Mahāpuruṣa/ Mahapurusha Yoga corresponds to the reddish hue in the face and the countenance and also an association with combating violence and terrorism.
The Ruchaka Mahāpuruṣa/ Mahapurusha Yoga makes for great warriors and in the meeting of the BJP Parliamentary Party on May 20, 2014 in the Lok Sabha he referred to himself as a soldier.
The fact that he was born to very humble circumstance, characterised by the fact that his mother worked as a domestic help, is also well reflected in the placement of Nīca Cañdra/ Neecha Chandra/ debilitated Moon in the Lagna. Readers would know that the Moon is the Naisargika Kāraka/ Natural Significator for the mother and debility of any planet indicates a lowly status and humility.
His sense of having been chosen for a mission is also centred in the birth in Vṛṣcika/ Vrishchika/ Scorpio Lagna since this is the natural 8th House of the zodiac and harbour a lot of Karma. He will be driven by the fact that he has Karma to fulfil and this sense permeates this warrior with the Shashi-Maṅgala/Mangala Yoga in the Lagna.
The debilitation of the Moon is cancelled by this Mars-Moon Yoga in the Lagna which is Ruchaka Yoga and the Shashi-Mangala Yoga at once and is also cancelled by the fact that that lord of the exaltation sign of the Moon, Venus/ Śukra/ Shukra is also placed in the Keṅdra/Kendra/quadrant from the Lagna being in the 10th House.
Śukra/ Shukra not only rules the tear gland and ducts but in the 10th House of work and professional attainment is completely devoid of its gentler significations like a love of luxury and relaxation, women, aesthetics, vehicles and so on. The reason is that Venus is completely burnt in the 10th House which is like the burning Sun and has no directional strength at all. He refused to follow the direction of Venus-marriage.
But Venus is the significator of nationalism and the BJP is a right-wing nationalist party and Narendra Modi is one of the foremost proponents of its ideology due to the placement of Venus in the 10th House and that too in the kingly sign of Leo/ Simha-power, rulership and royalty.
He says that he is an optimist and that optimism and hope are essential for constructive work. He says this for two reasons.
How Prime Minister of India-
We have seen how Śani as the Ātmakāraka/ Atmakaraka defines his soul experience. The planet which makes him an astute politician is the significator of all politics in general, Rāhu/ Rahu/the North Node of the Moon. The cerebral work and calculations and strategy which are so integral to the political process are all significations of Rāhu.
In his chart, Rāhu is placed in the 5th House of power and intelligence but most importantly Rāhu is the Cara Amātyakāraka/ Amatyakaraka or the temporal significator of the manner in which the soul expands into work. Rāhu aspects the Lagna and the Lagna Lord with planetary aspect/ Graha Dṛṣṭi/ Drishti imbuing the self and applied intelligence with all the tools required for politics.
Rāhu aspects the 10th Lord Sun with planetary aspect forming the Rāja Sambaṅdha/ Raja Sambandha Yoga which is essential for associating with the highest placed in power. As it turns out Rāhu has made him the Prime Minister of India.
Parivartana between Gurū/ Guru and Rāhu/ Rahu-
We can see that Rahu and Guru are in Parivartana/ exchange Yoga in the Rāśi Cakra. His value system is geared to attain an objective in the political sphere. A deeper insight into this is derived from the Navamsha Chakra.
Jupiter in Navamsha Lagna-
The strength of the Lagna or the self is clear from the fact that the Lagna is Vargottama showing a man with unflinching faith in his beliefs and his own self. Retrograde Jupiter is in Vargottama Navamsha Lagna showing a deep resource pool of entrenched values and morality.
Rāhu in the Rāśi is informed by the values of this Jupiter in the Navamsha and in the Rāśi due to the exchange of signs.
Vargottama Venus and Nationalism-
The fact that Venus is in Leo in the Navamsha as well makes it Vargottama and firmly establishes the authenticity and strength of Narendra Modi's nationalism.
In the Navamsha the Rāśi Lagneśa Maṅgala is Nīca showing vulnerability in realms of anger and reaction. Martial force could be used in cases of breach of peace, terrorism and religion based disturbance of the peace at the hands of zealots and despots.
Dashamsha/ D-10 chart-
Dashamsha and Politics-
Debilitated Rāhu/ Rahu is in the Lagna showing a magnificent career as a politician since exalted and debilitated planets in matters of career and wealth give excellent results. The debilitated Rāhu shows that he has come up the ranks as a Pracharaka of the Rashtriya Svayamsevaka Sangh (RSS). Sun and Saturn in the 6th House shows selfless service throughout his life. It is service at the feet of the nation state as Venus, the Kāraka of nationalism aspects the 6th House from the Lagna with Rāśi Dṛṣṭi/ Rashi Drishti or sign aspect. Further there is an exchange in the D-10 between Saturn and Venus completely crystallising this point.
Meaning of debilitated Mars in D-10-
Rāśi Lagneśa/ Rashi Lagnesha Mars is Nīca/Neecha/ debilitated in the 8th House in the D-10 chart but it is the 12th Lord and forms the Viparīta Rāja/ Vipareeta Raja Yoga giving unanticipated success in life.
Why in Moon Daśā/ Dasha-
The Cañdra Mahādaśā/ Chandra Mahadasha is running in the horoscope in the Vimśottarī Daśā/ Vimshottari Dasha scheme as depicted below-
Moon MD: 2010-11-27 (3:43:45 pm) - 2020-11-27 (5:13:01 am)
Aṅtaradaśās in this MD:

Ket: 2018-02-24 (1:23:29 am) - 2018-09-28 (1:41:24 pm)
Ven: 2018-09-28 (1:41:24 pm) - 2020-05-26 (4:32:15 am)
Sun: 2020-05-26 (4:32:15 am) - 2020-11-27 (5:13:01 am)
Parāśara in the BPHS teaches that conjoined planets give each others' results in the Daśā. Moon Mahādaśa gives the results of conjoined Mars and the Jupiter Aṅtaradaśā gives political power of the highest level because of Parivartana with Rāhu in the Rāśi and due to the placement of Jupiter in the 5th House in the D-10 chart.
Early marriage with peculiarities-
The Upapada is in the 8th House in the Rāśi with the sign being Mithuna/ Gemini ruled by the young Mercury and so he was married in his teenage. He rejected the marriage which was not consummated because the Upapada is in the 12th Bhāva of rejection from the Āruḍha/ Arudha Lagna (AL). The marriage has not been annulled due to the Rāśi Dṛṣṭi of Gurū to the 2nd Bhāva from the UL and also because the lord though debilitated (very sad) aspects the continuance of the marriage. It is continuance only in name since Mars also aspects and the Moon is debilitated. The spouse had vowed she would not eat rice (Moon debilitated) and not wear slippers till Narendra Modi is sworn in as the Prime Minister.
This is India. This is Narendra Modi, the Prime Minister of India.
