Ganesha warns Rajnikanth of bad health in 2008

The superstar of South, Rajnikanth was born on December 12th, 1950. He is one of the most prominent actors of Indian film industry who received India's third highest honor, the Padma Bhushan for his contribution to Indian cinema in 2000. His latest film Shivaji earned him rave reviews and was also a box office hit. Ganesha finds out the planetary positions in his chart to give reasons for his success and predict his future.

Rajnikanth's Birth Chart


He has Leo Ascendant and the Lord of Ascendant Sun is placed in the 4th house becoming the Atmakaraka planet which signifies success, fame, power because although losing strength by occupying 4th house Sun gets 6 Bindu in Astakvarga. Venus, the Lord of 10th house is well placed in the 5th house of performance and placed in its own house in Navmansa chart indicating success in entertainment and show business. Jupiter is placed in the 7th house and aspecting the Ascendant giving him fairly strong public image and also making him generous and always willing to help the downtrodden section of the society.

It was Rahu Mahadasha and Venus Bhukti that had lifted Rajnikant's film career with grand success of films Bhuvana Oru Kelvikkuri and Aarilirunthu Arubathu. Jupiter the Lord of 5th house is strong in his chart and made him successful in most of the films in 90s.

It was Saturn-Saturn period when BABA was released. Although the film covered its budget, it was viewed as a poor showing and fell short of market expectations and high bids accumulating heavy losses for the distributors. Rajinikanth himself repaid the losses incurred by the distributors who had immense faith in him which is a rare quality shown by the placement of Jupiter in his chart.

His latest film, Sivaji: The Boss, released on June 15, 2007, has become the first Tamil movie to make it to the UK and South Africa Top 10 Charts. He is running Saturn-Venus period and the strong Venus in his chart denoted him the magical success again.

He is very much interested in politics and extended his support to various political parties in the past.The placement of Saturn in the 10th house from Moon shows this tendency. During the period of 2008, he would dwell into aspects of occult, religion and spiritualism and may take interest in understanding the meaning of life and soul. He would begin perhaps one more commercial assignment as well. But his health would be under pressure form June 2008 onwards. Severe anxiety and workload can harm his health. He might make a decisive move around October 2008 but will have to be very careful as the period between October 2008 and March 2009 seems extremely eventful, stressful and challenging both physically and mentally. He will be indirectly connected with masses and social service and may also campaign for the right causes but may not get involved in direct politics.

On his Birthday, Ganesha Wishes him a Birthday full of happiness and pleasant surprises. May Lord Ganesha bless him!

Ganesha's Grace,
