Nandan Nilekani's Surya Kundli

Date of Birth : June 2, 1955

Place of Birth : Sirsi, Karnataka, India
Astrological Analysis :
Ganesha observes the Surya Kundli of Nandan Nilekani and notes that Natal Saturn rules the 10th House of political career, which is retrograde and conjunct with Natal Moon in the 6th House. This factor indicates dealings with government and its agencies. Chances of involvement in politics as a career also arise due to this combination. However, Nandan Nilekani may not get tremendous success due to the retrogression of Natal Saturn. He may have to tread a difficult path even before the Lok Sabha elections are due, and difficulties may continue even after the elections have concluded.

At present, Nandan Nilekani is under the influence of Saturn return through the 6th House. In addition, Rahu is also passing through the 6th House. Hence, this factor indicates he may just be partially successful in politics. Due to the affliction of Natal Moon, he may face several discomforts in the Indian political arena. Moreover, malefic Ketu is transiting over his Ascendant Lord, Venus, through the 12th House. Hence, the overall path of his political career will witness a bumpy ride.
