Congress to share power; Left to be alienated
The fall of Deve Gowda's government
resulted in some very uncomfortable
personal publicity, lots of praise and some blame from those unaware
of mundane astrology. It is not possible for any astrologer to
have the complete data about nations and important personalities.
The result -- 60 per cent of the predictions are a grope in the
No US astrologer has Bob Dole's correct horoscope. I have been
accused of predicting Dole's victory -- something that I've never
done. All that I did was to refer to the American poll forecasts,
which are normally very dependable. Besides, Bill Clinton's horoscope
does not indicate defeat. But there are other problems which were
visible then and are manifesting themselves now. Going on the
basis of Clinton's horoscope, his problems can only increase.
Similarly, Moopanar's horoscope is not available. But the national
horoscope indicates the assertive role of south India, in some
way or the other. Using this indication as a base, the following
inferences can be drawn.
1. The Tamil Maanila Congress can still join I K Gujral's cabinet.
And the leadership of the United Front can still come from the
south. These are not, I repeat, predictions; they are merely inferences.
2. Though I do not have Sitaram Kesri's horoscope, I can still
draw inferences from the horoscope of the Congress party -- and
I did so on the basis of the Mercury pratyantara dasha. It turned
out to be a hundred per cent correct -- the Congress caused a jolt
when they withdrew support to the Deve Gowda government.
3. Taking into account the time at which Gujral was elected leader
of the UF and the time when he took his oath as prime minister,
three jolts are visible. Again, I have drawn inferences.
The 10th lord, Jupiter, is in the 8th house. Saturn is in the
10th house with Ketu. These two are bad in themselves. The aspect
of retrograde Mars, from the third house on the 10th house, is
worse. Add to all this the results of an afflicted Moon and watch
out for the dramatic events that will unfold in next three months.
There has been no research on mundane astrology since the days
of Varahamihira. Ancient concepts have not been modernised to
suit the changed conditions of democracies. New research has to
be done on parliamentary elections. When individual horoscopes
based on the correct time of birth is available, it is easier
to make predictions. Yet, in order to ensure accuracy, the horoscopes
of the main rival candidates should be considered.
In the absence of individual horoscopes, other well-known techniques
are adopted. Ordinarily, when this is done, I ask readers to draw
their own inferences as I do not have sufficient data to reach
a definite conclusion myself.
Keeping this in mind, what can the four prominent weaknesses in
Gujral's oath-taking ceremony mean? So a series of inferences
start -- which includes the alienation of the Left and power-sharing
by the Congress. These events, if they happen, will create some
