Modi was fittingly born under the Scorpio ascendant (rising sign) as an intensely
passionate person, starting his life with nothing and achieving everything in
his life on his own with almost nobody's help. Scorpio born generally love
challenges, especially difficult challenges, because overcoming those
difficulties when the odds are all against them, they truly strive on beating
those odds. Mr. Modi is very
independent, has strong convictions, very focused, never lets up, and maybe
perceived as a crazy lunatic. The most
significant planetary configurations in his natal charts are: Sun-Saturn,
Saturn-Mercury and Sun- Mercury close conjunctions in the 10th house; Moon and Mars in
the first house and Jupiter in the 4th house.
The first and the sixth house ruler, Scorpio Mars resides
in the first house right on its cusp and in its own sign. This Mars in the
first house makes him very energetic, strong, in early part of his life very
impulsive, insistent, impatient, ambitious, aggressive, confident,
determined, hardworking, extremely independent, sometimes arrogant, loves power,
a true political leader, authority, healthy, self confident, being in Scorpio secretive,
emotional (water sign), mystical and has potential for being a
Along with Mars, debilitated Scorpio Moon in Anuradha
Nakshatra also resides in the first house. Although this Moon debilitated being
in Scorpio, due to its disposition in the cardinal (first) house and strengthened
by friendly Mars, a Neech-Bhanga (cancellation of Debilitation) Raj yoga
is produced making the Moon almost equivalent to her exalted status. Moon
being in Anuradha Nakshatra, a symbol of lotus flower, his basic inner
impulse constitutes a sense of righteousness producing harmony and good social
relationship. Anuradha also represents soul's thrust for union with the
Source. Being the ruler of the ninth house, the first house auspicious Moon practically
guarantees him good health, lively and charismatic personality, makes him compassionate,
sensitive, gentle, well mannered, sharp, smart, loving, caring, lucky and
The second and the fifth house ruler, Aquarius Jupiter, in
the fourth house makes him intelligent, philosophical, happy or tendency to find
happiness even under challenging conditions. If one considers the planetary
placement of only Mars, Moon and Jupiter in this chart, this person would
be destined to be a philosopher, spiritual leader or a social activist.
Then why is he in politics? The answer lies in the
planets influencing Jupiter. As you we will see later, the political
planets: Saturn, Sun, Mercury and Mars together bring very different
energy to this chart. The malefic first house resident Mars and malefic
tenth house resident Saturn, Sun and Mercury aspect (Drishti) Jupiter,
indicating the life experiences for this person to be strongly influenced by the
malefic planets to fulfill his destiny.
There are five planets in the tenth house. And they are:
The third and the fourth house ruler, Leo Saturn, in the
tenth house. It means he is a successful achiever despite taking a long time, hard
work, perseverance to achieve his goal, ambitious, egoist, shrewd, sometimes
ruthless (the fire sign), likable, respectable, high political stature and
popular. He will be remembered long after he is gone.
The ruler of the seventh and twelfth house, Leo Venus, is
excellent for profession, fame, popularity, social prestige, excellent financial
gains, ups and downs in political career, humiliation, preoccupation with
The ruler of the tenth house, the auspicious Virgo Sun, is
perfectly placed providing him the political and social power and prestigious
positions and aspiration to become the one of the most powerful person in the
world shaping the new world order.
The ruler of the eighth and the eleventh house, exalted
Virgo Mercury, although combust, being exalted, provides the Virgo Sun, all
of its positive qualities and energy, making the Sun far more powerful than
otherwise. Being the ruler of the eighth house, occasional financial ups
and downs, friction with cabinet members and political figures are likely.
However, the powerful trio of Sun-Saturn-Mercury conjunction in the 10th house
outweighs the challenges making him tremendously successful in politics with many
achievements both domestically and internationally.
The Virgo Ketu in the tenth house and Pisces Rahu in the
4th house forms the karmic axis in this chart, and most of his life challenges
and crisis revolve around this axis. Occasional political setbacks, no
family life are some of the symptoms of this axis. However, the tenth
house Ketu is spiritual for him being associated with Saturn.
The Gemini Uranus in the eighth house makes him
extraordinarily intelligent, but it can also cause financial crisis as well as family crisis. It
isolates him from family life (a part of his destiny's plan).
Neptune (which conjuncts Mars in the first house in Navansha chart) in the eleventh house
makes him extremely talented and shrewd in politics when it comes to deal with his counter-parts both domestically and internationally.
However, he is likely to have very few friends, Neptunian deception plays
important role in dealing with people around him. Since Neptune being the only planet
that aspects the fifth house, it provides him with tremendous spiritual energy at the
expense of denial of family life and children.
The Cancer Pluto in the ninth house provides him additional
support for his spiritual quest when spiritual planets become activated during
their respective Dasha cycles.
