Saturn’s transit in Libra will be a defining moment for judicial activism in India, says Ganesha
The Supreme Court recently pulled up the Delhi police for its direction-less probe into the ‘cash for vote scam’. The Apex court, turning hyper activist in
the past one year or so, has intervened in the governance in unprecedented ways. The Supreme Court has taken upon itself the task of resolving, or at least attempting to resolve many important issues that are pending for years. The intervention of courts in addressing major social and political issues has also escalated. The Supreme Court openly criticised the PM for alleged inaction in the 2G spectrum scam. The result of which was that the CBI acted and arrested a few key figures involved in the scam. The Supreme Court slammed the government for the CWG corruption, and it was only then that the interrogation caught momentum. In the ‘Adarsh Housing scam’, it was the Bombay High Court which directed the CBI to look into the allegations against the Union Ministers involved in the scam. The Apex Court took suo motu cognisance of forceful eviction of yoga guru Baba Ramdev and his followers from Ramlila ground. Against the inadequate probe on black money issue, the Supreme Court of India issued a very unique order to set up SIT to monitor the investigation. This judicial activism is new to India and is compelling us to ponder over the question- who rules our country: is it the cabinet or the courts?
The 9th House signifies the judiciary in general and its highest sit, the Supreme Court in particular.The entire process started when Jupiter was passing through Pisces, aspecting the 9th House Lord, Saturn. Saturn-Jupiter opposition plays a vital role in bringing in reforms. The process got momentum from April 2011, as the Lord of 9th House of Hindu New Year Chart, Mercury is retrograde in its debilitation sign thus acts as exalted. Mercury is also Vargottama and placed in the 7th House of Chalit Chart. The strong retrograde Mercury signifies the unprecedented judicial activism.
The 10th House, the most important House rules the government. In the Hindu New Year Chart, the Lord of 10th House, Moon is afflicted severely in the 6th House. This serious affliction is causing confusion, indecisiveness and nervousness in the corridors of power at New Delhi. It indicates ‘weakness’ of the government and lack of efficiency to an extent. The inaction of the government may force the people of India to believe that the nation is not run by the government but the judiciary system. The UPA government will be under pressure due to continuing irritants. The general state of health of the government will not be good. Also, the President and Prime Minister should be careful about their health.
Saturn represents democracy. And when Saturn will enter Libra on 15th November 2011, more attempts will be made to give people the real control. Saturn’s transit in Libra will be a defining moment for judicial activism in India. The subtle but deep confrontation of power between the judiciary and the executives will continue. The Supreme Court will give one or two landmark judgements, which will be widely hailed.
