The above question surely cannot be answered in a line or two and not also in a single paragraph. There are many combinations that contribute to the wonder of this man, and the most dazzling areas have been highlighted below:
If the aforementioned configurations are dissected and studied in a deeper sense, even more interesting things would come to the fore. For a politician to have a successful career and an edge over his opponents, it is required that the planets like Sun, Jupiter, Saturn and Rahu are in good positions. Additionally, a strong Mars tends to be highly favourable, courage and self-confidence are must to survive and flourish in the political arena.
Apart from the planets, the individual Houses in a Horoscope are also taken into consideration – the 1st House (self, personality, charisma), the 2nd House (speech, oratory, expression), 3rd House (courage, skills, talents, self-effort, knack to deal with sudden situations), 5th House (fame, intelligence, intuition), 6th House (enemies, strength to outsmart competitors and rivals, competitions/contests), 9th House (fortune, country, social image, honour, higher knowledge), the 10th House (success, ambition, prestige, authority), and the 11th House (networks, contacts, achievements, realisation of ambition and dreams) are very important and play a very significant role in determining the influence a person may have on the masses. In the case of Mr. Modi, all these Houses are under positive influences and the Lords of all these Houses form a divine picture.
So, we can summarise some areas of the above in the following points:
1. Lagna Lord in the 11th House (Venus)
2. Saturn: (i) in the 11th House and (ii) as Yogakaraka in the 11th House. Saturn in the 11th House itself is a great placement and he is also having the virtue of being the Yogakaraka, so it is an even better equation.
3. Jupiter in the 5th House, activating the trines 1st and 9th Houses and also the 11th House.
4. Mars in the 2nd House being in his own House along with the 10th Lord Moon
5. Rahu in the 6th House
There is also an important part that the Nakshatras play in Mr. Modi’s case. The placement of the Planets in the Nakshatras and the power and the influences that the Planets are deriving from that in the horoscope of Narendra Modi makes for a very interesting study.
Let’s take a look at the Nakshatras in which the planets are placed in Modi’s Horoscope and how this influences his personality:
1. Sun in own Nakshatra – Uttaraphalguni
2. Mercury in Sun’s Nakshatra – Uttaraphalguni
3. Ketu in Sun’s Nakshatra – Uttaraphalguni
4. Saturn in Sun’s Nakshatra – Uttaraphalguni
5. Mars in the Nakshatra of the 3rd and 6th Lord Jupiter – Visakha
6. Jupiter in Mars’ Nakshatra – Dhanishta
7. Moon in Saturn’s (Yogakaraka’s) Naksatra – Anuradha
8. Venus in own Nakshatra – Purvaphalguni
9. Rahu in Yogakaraka Saturn’s Naksatra – Uttarabhadra
It is remarkable to note that all the Planet-Nakshatra relationships in the case of Mr. Modi are contributing in some way or the other to the sublime greatness of the man, who managed to ascend right to the top, even when he started from a rather modest background.
Explanation of the Nakshatra Occupation of Planets:
There is an exchange of Nakshatras between Mars and Jupiter, and out of the two Jupiter happens to be the 3rd and 6th Houses (courage and boldness) Lord and Mars happens to be the Karaka of courage. So, the lord/s of the aforementioned houses having any connection with Mars, may, in most cases wok in favour of the native, as regards his courage, boldness and the ability to resist dangers and hassles. This explains Modiji’s resilience and the power to withstand any sort of difficulty that may come in his path.
Major role of Sun – the Planet of Politics, Power and Government by the way of being the Nakshatra Lord of 4 key Planets and the Dispositor of both the Ascendant Lord and Yogakaraka in the Horoscope of Mr. Modi:
So, we can very well observe that 4 Planets are placed in the Constellation/Nakshatra of Sun, that is in Uttaraphalguni. As, it is commonly known, Sun is the Planet who signifies Politics, Government, Administration, Power, Authority and all such royal aspects. Sun already happens to be the dispositor of the Ascendant Lord Venus and the Yogakaraka Planet Saturn and he is the 11th Lord of the Chart. So, Mr. Modi has gained tremendously from the areas represented by Sun and his success is one of the most phenomenal ones that we have seen in our lifetime, so far!
Some Highlights in the Navamsa Chart:
Sun as the 5th House Lord in the 10th House
Mercury as the 3rd and 6th Houses Lord in the 10th House
Saturn as the 10th and 11th Houses Lord in the 9th House
The above placements are liking an icing on the cake and further add to the power and strength of the chart! Ganesha shall not get into the deeper areas of the Navamsa Chart in this article as the major attributes, qualities and strengths have been already discussed.
Such planetary combinations and configurations only indicate that some people are chosen by the Almighty for the accomplishment of some particular tasks in this mortal world! Such cases as this, can be considered spectacular case-study materials and the enthusiasts of astrology should ideally consider taking up such cases to be able to learn the deeper areas and the interesting aspects of the Vedanga – Astrology!
