Astrological Perspective: Lok Sabha Election 2019

The Election Commission announced the election schedule at 5:29 pm on 10th March 2019. Fiery Leo is the ascendant during that phase. Also, Mars is placed with Moon in another fiery sign Aries. So, it is bound to be a sensitive time frame for the country. The atmosphere will be rife with sloganeering, controversies, promises and war of words. The political leaders will exhibit aggressive behaviour. As Moon is with Ketu, the voting trend will be highly unpredictable and there will be a lot of confusion. The voter turnout will be high.

The ascendant and its Lord both are not afflicted, hence it looks like that the ruling party will make strong efforts to retain power. On the other hand, Lord of the 7th house (the House of Opposition) Saturn is afflicted by Ketu, so the opposition parties will be facing a tough contest. This election may bring out unexpected results, which may impact India’s political future in a big way. There may happen some untoward incidents and disruptions around the voting dates. But the law enforcing agencies will tackle the problem efficiently. Lok Sabha election 2019 may turn out to be one of the exciting events in Indian history.

With Ganesha's Grace,

The Team
