Sarvatobhadra Chakra, Bush and Blair

Namaste friends,
Several classics have extolled the value of Sarvatobhadra chakra (SBC) in judging transits. For those of you who are interested, I have explained its use in my book with examples (in the section on transits). It is available in my
free software JHora. Whatever parameters I am going to use below are available in JHora.
Let me give a couple of examples based on the wins of Bush and Blair.
Bush's janma vaara is Saturday. At the time of his re-election, two benefics (Jupiter and Venus) had vedha on Saturday in SBC. Bush's natal abhisheka nakshatra is Hasta. Jupiter and Venus (benefics) were transiting in it. His puttra tithi was Sukla Navami, i.e. a Rikta tithi. Mercury, Jupiter and Venus had vedha on Rikta on that day (Note: Puttra tithi moves 5 times faster compared to janma tithi and shows children as well as following). The 5th house of following was Sc and Sun, Moon and Mercury were having vedha on it.
Due to vedhas from predominantly auspicious planets on important centers of power (based on vaara, tithi, nakshatra and houses), it was a good time for him and he had to win the election.
Now, let us do the same exercise for Blair.
Blair's janma vaara is Wednesday. In SBC, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn have vedha on it right now. His puttra tithi is Krishna Shashthi, i.e. a Nanda tithi. Moon, Mercury, Venus and Rahu had vedha on it this morning. His abhisheka nakshatra Abhijit has vedha from Mars. Though Mars is the lord of lagna and GL in D-10, this vedha causes problems. However, karma nakshatra from natal lagna, Hasta, is occupied by transit Jupiter and abhisheka nakshatra from natal lagna, Krittika, is occupied by Venus and has vedha from Sun. The 5th house of natal rasi chart, Virgo, has vedha from Jupiter.
Due to the pre-dominance of auspicious vedhas on important centers of power, he too had to prevail. However, there are more negative influences in Blair's case. While Bush was seen to have a "clear mandate" to push his agenda, Blair is seen as a "bruised" winner.
However, Blair's Maanasa nakshatra (Moola) has vedha from Saturn, Rahu and Ketu right now. Though temporary vedha from Moon and Mercury alleviates it, vedhas from Saturn, Rahu and Ketu are long-standing. So you cannot expect mental peace for him. He was and will be disturbed for a while. The time when Mars and Rahu join in Revati and Ketu is in Chitra will rob him of mental peace further.
May Jupiter's light shine on us,
