NAVEEN PATNAIK - THE NEXT CHIEF MINISTER OF ORISSA
By Sanjay Rath
Horoscope of Sri NAVEEN PATNAIK (CABINET MINISTER OF INDIA)
Chart 1. Date 16th October 1946, Time: 1 AM, CUTTACK, INDIA. (AL: Arudha Lagna; A7: Darapada or Arudha of seventh house; HL: Hora Lagna; VL: Varnada Lagna; GL: Ghatika Lagna; UL: Upapada; A10: Rajya Pada)
The horoscope of Shri Naveen Patnaik has Cancer Lagna with Saturn in it. This by itself, is one of the most powerful Rajyoga that can be present in any chart as “Saturn in Cancer or Jupiter in Pisces in the Throne can give a very powerful Rajyoga”. This combination was present in the chart of the Late Prime Minister Smt. Indira Gandhi and Adolf Hitler was responsible for their dramatic rise and wielding of power. The throne implies the first or tenth houses and if this is in Lagna, then the person shall be born in a family wielding Political power (Saturn in throne) or Religious/Financial power (Jupiter in throne). Naveen Patnaik is a worthy son of the illustrious Biju Patnaik (ex-Chief Minister of Orissa). However, the married life of such people with Saturn causing the Rajyoga will either be disturbed or absent. Indira Gandhi was separated from her spouse while Hitler married just before his death and here Naveen Patnaik is a bachelor.
The conjunction of the lords of the ninth and tenth houses results in another very powerful Rajyoga called the Dharma-Karmadhipati Yoga (DKY) and shows a person who will be playing a vital role in the re-establishment of Dharma (Truth and good social values) and will rule the land like a good statesman. Mercury is like a child and any planet it conjoins, it gives the results indicated by the planet while not giving its own. Thus, Mercury conjoining this Dharma-Karmadhipati Yoga will give its results. Further, the placement of the planets involved in the DKY show the area where this is to function. Since this Yoga is in the fourth house, it clearly indicates motherland or hometown and can translate to indicating the state of Orissa, India. Further, the planets conjoining the tenth lord Mars and aspecting the tenth house Aries will give the results DKY Rajyoga. These are Mercury and Jupiter.
Strength of Rajyoga
A natural question arising is that the planets giving Rajyoga should be strong, at least in Navamsa to give Rajyoga and we find that Mercury and Jupiter are both in debility in the Navamsa. So, how were Rajyoga and its continuity being predicted?
For this we need to examine the ARUDHA LAGNA, which is the seat of illusion (Maya Peetha) in contrast to Lagna that is the seat of truth (Satya). The standard text like Brihat Parasara Hora Shastra, Jaimini Sutras etc state that malefic planets in the third and sixth house from LAGNA give courage and consequential employment in the army and natural benefics placed in the third and sixth houses make a person cowardly. However, natural benefics placed in the third and sixth houses from ARUDHA LAGNA do not make a person cowardly, but produce belief in ahimsa (i.e. the path of non-violence) and give rise to spiritualism and saints. A number of situations can arise by the placements of planets in the sixth house from Arudha Lagna. These are as follows: -
1. Single Planet in the Sixth House from AL
If a natural malefic is placed alone in the sixth house from AL, there shall be yoga during its period resulting in growth of lands, good crops and agriculture, physical prowess and success in battles. However, Parasara adds that the nature will receive illegal gratification like black money etc. Thus, a natural malefic like Mars in the sixth house from Arudha Lagna gives very good results in the material word. Similarly, a natural benefic in the sixth house from Arudha Lagna gives spiritualism, renunciation and practice of ahimsa.
2. Two or more Planets in the Sixth House from AL
(a) Only Benefic Planets in the Sixth House from AL
Two powerful benefic in the sixth house from AL. especially Jupiter, Mercury or Venus can cause powerful Pravrajya yoga (renunciation) especially if they are very strong like being in exaltation in Rasi/Navamsa.
(b) Both Benefic and Malefic Planets in the Sixth House from AL
While only benefics in the sixth give Pravrajya yoga, malefics present deny the same and give success in battles. When both benefic and malefic planets are present, mixed influences prevail and the native is churned between the materialistic world and spiritualism. If the benefic planet is not only afflicted by a malefic, but is also weak by being in debility in Rasi/Navamsa, a powerful Vipareeta Rajyoga in generated.
In the CHART of Shri Naveen Patnaik the Sun is placed in the third house from Lagna making him gallant and brave. Simultaneously, the planets Mercury, Jupiter and Mars conjoin in the sixth house from Arudha Lagna. Thus, rule 2 (b) above applies. Both Mercury and Jupiter being natural benefics are not only afflicted by Mars, but are also very weak by being placed in debilitated Navamsa, thereby attaining the ability to give a powerful Rajyoga. This is a sort of Vipareeta Rajyoga as explained and with the death of his father during Saturn dasa Jupiter antardasa, he was compelled to take up the leadership of the Janata Dal which fragmented to form the Biju Janata Dal (BJD). Allies are seen from the Darapada (A7), which is in Libra with Jupiter and Mercury. Thus, with the support of the Lotus (Jupiter-BJP), he suddenly rose to became a cabinet minister is the Government of India. Readers can compare this placement of natural benefics in the sixth from AL in the chart of Tony Blair, Prime Minister of UK (Chart 2). Al IS IN Sagittarius with Mercury and Mars in the sixth from it in Taurus. Mercury is not only afflicted by Mars, but is also placed in debility in Pisces in the Navamsa. With the advent of Mercury Dasa-Mercury antardasa, he became the Prime Minister of UK.
CHART 2. TONY BLAIR (PRIME MINISTER OF UK) Date: 6th May 1955; Time: 2 PM; PLACE: LONDON.
Hora, Ghatika & Varnada
The Hora Lagna (Seat of Wealth) is in Taurus with the Arudha Lagna and has the Rasi Dristi (Permanent Sign sight) of Jupiter, Mars, Mercury and Saturn from movable signs. The Ghatika Lagna (Seat of Power) has the conjunction of the Dharma-Karmadhipati Yoga (Mars & Jupiter) and Mercury. The Varnada Lagna is in the second house indicating a very high status and position. This position of the Varnada Lagna is a great asset for the chart as was present in the chart of Queen Victoria.
While Naveen Patnaik became a Cabinet Minister in Saturn Dasa Jupiter antardasa after the elections 1998, he continued to maintain and increase his lead thereby returning to power as the Cabinet Minister in the elections 1999 as predicted. The most beneficial Mercury Dasa-Mercury antardasa starts in March 2000 and he will surely become the next Chief Minister of Orissa. If the swearing-in time is well chosen, then his reign will see the increase of prosperity of Orissa as well as the flowering of its rich cultural heritage.
HARI OM TAT SAT
 Counting the number of signs from the lord of Lagna as it has gained from Lagna we arrive at the Arudha Lagna. For example, if the lord of Lagna is in the third house, counting three signs from the third house, we arrive at the fifth house that becomes the Arudha Lagna. There are two riders to this firstly, if the Arudha Lagna is in the Lagna itself (i.e. the Lagna lord is in the first or seventh house). The tenth house should be treated as the Arudha Lagna. Secondly, if the Arudha Lagna is in the seventh house (i.e. the lord of Lagna is placed in the fourth and tenth house), then the fourth house should be treated as the Arudha Lagna. The Arudha Lagna plays a vital role in determining our states/job in this material world.
