Namaste astrologer friends,

I wrote an article on Telugu film megastar Chiranjeevi in Express Star Teller magazine a few years back. Unfortunately, I don't remember which issue of EST it was published in, but the article was last written on August 26, 2000.

I wrote: "If Chiranjeevi has political ambitions, Jupiter antardasa during 2008-2009 will be favorable as exalted Jupiter occupies Ghati Lagna (GL) in rasi chart. GL is the seat of power in a chart. ...
During 2009-2019, Cancer's Narayana dasa will run and that is also favorable for political power, as Cancer contains GL. If Chiranjeevi has political ambitions, this is the time when he should be willing to take some risks."

When this prediction was made in 2000, there were no indications of a political entry by Chiranjeevi. Interestingly, that changed now.
Political circles in the AP state of India are abuzz with rumors of Chiranjeevi's grand entry into politics for the next year's elections!

Apart from the old prediction from 2000 based on Vimsottari and Narayana dasas, I just took a look at the annual TP chart of 2008-09.
His birthdata is: 1955 August 22, 10:31 am (IST), Mogaltur, India.
Annual Tithi Pravesha (lunar return) chart can be cast using JHora.
Data should be: 2008 Sept 4, 2:34:13 pm (IST), Mogaltur, India.

In this annual chart, 6th lord Venus is debilitated and 6th lord Mercury is exalted. This confers Jaya yoga and shows conquest of enemies. The 5th lord Mars and 10th lord Mercury are together in the 10th house within a couple of arc-minutes and give a powerful raja yoga. Mars is the lord of the year. Mercury owns ghati lagna (GL -
important for power). They both have rasi drishti on GL in Gemini and lagna in Sagittarius and become yogadas. They both have full and 3/4th aspect on rajya sahama in Sagittarius (sahama = a sensitive point in the zodiac, rajya = kingdom). In dasamsa, Mercury is lagna lord and exalted in 4th in arudha lagna. Mars is in 5th. Keerti pada (A5), bhagya pada (A9) or rajya pada (A10) are together in lagna and Mercury is their owner. His exaltation in AL in a kendra from lagna is

As per annual Tithi Ashtottari dasa (supposed to be used with annual TP charts), Mars and Mercury dasas run from March 29 to June 19, 2009!!

Though there was talk of advancing the elections (which are due in May 2009), I expect that elections will not be advanced and held in April-May, 2009. I also expect Chiranjeevi to be active politically, be victorious in 2009 elections and either lead the state government or be a prominent person in the leading party/coalition at the
state/central levels. Bottomline is that I expect Chiranjeevi to enjoy some political power starting from April/May 2009. The year 2008-09 is a landmark year for him.

If you are a fan of Chiranjeevi and cheering for him to enter politics, my expectation is that you will be a happy person in 2009! Good luck to Chiranjeevi and his fans! May the humble giant change the face of Telugu politics!

Best regards,

Namaste friends,

The executive edior of "Express Star Teller" magazine kindly checked the old issues and informed me that the article containing this prediction appeared on pages 16-20 of the March 2001 issue, in case anybody wants to read the full article.

As I said earlier, my goal is not to boast. I wanted to share this as it was a prediction made more than 7 years back, when there were no indications of this development. Based on 3 dasas, 2008-2009, 2007-2012 and 2009-2019 stood out as the periods granting political power. Interestingly, the talk started in 2007 and reaching crescendo in 2008. Finally, 2009 should bring the political power.

This is one more example of the greatness of Jyotish principles taught by Parasara and other rishis and how beautifully they work sometimes, even when applied by an idiot like me. My knowledge is small now but was even smaller in 2000 when this prediction was made.

Yet developments foreseen 7-8 years back based on the teachings of rishis are unfolding now.

Another film star that I expect to finally shake the south Indian political arena is Tamil superstar Rajinikant. He resisted pressure from fans for a long time. After Chiranjeevi in the neighboring state, he may take the plunge too. I will write another article on Rajinikant's chart later. He is a born king and leader. He is quite a
an elevated person spiritually and can be a great king in the mould of Janaka.

Baadhak Sthan

From: Narasimha P.V.R. Rao <>
Date: Sat, Apr 12, 2008 at 5:23 AM
Subject: [vedic-astrology] Re: Baadhak Sthan


To understand badhaka sthana, one has to look at the definition closely. Why 11th, 9th and 7th houses for movable, fixed and dual signs?

Badhaka sthana is like an inherent weakness that troubles one and can destabilize the personality.

Movable signs have a lot of rajas (energy). The 11th house is the house of gains and fulfilment of desires and it has the potential to drive a person of active and dynamic disposal to an extreme and test. Such a dynamic person should watch out against the tendency to become fickle-minded while pursuing multiple gains.

Fixed signs have more tamas and are fixed in nature. The 9th house is the house of dharma (duty) and it has the potenital to put a person of rigid and strong temperament to test. Such a rigid person should watch out against the tendency to become dogmatic about one's dharma.

While movable signs are dynamic and fixed signs are rigid, dual signs are flexible and able to adopt. The 7th house is of relationships and it can push those flexible people to test. Such people should watch out against the tendency to be ambivalent in relationships.

Thus, badhaka sthana shows the forces that can make a dynamic person fickle-minded, a rigid person dogmatic and a flexible person ambivalent.

If you understand the basic reasoning, you will realize that badhaka concept is sometimes overrated and wrongly used for every problem under Sun. If you understand the concept and the logic, you will be able to judge all the factors at play in an individual chart intelligently and judge appropriately.

Anyway, having explained my take on the philosophy behind this concept in detail, I will briefly answer your specific questions.

[1] These are the houses that present particular challenges to the person and tend to destabilize the personlity in extreme cases. These houses stand for disturbances in life that come from within and without any apparent reason. One should guard against these challenges.

[2] Lord is more important. The ownerships of a planet decide its agenda. The placement of a planet decides the resources at its disposal as it finds a way to push its agenda.

[3] Results of badhaka sthana can be given in mahadasa or antardasa.

Default Ayanamsa in Jhora 7.1b2

From: Narasimha P.V.R. Rao <>

Subject: Re: [jhora] Default Ayanamsa in Jhora 7.1b2


Yes, this was deliberate.

In regular ayanamsa implementations, the two-dimensional plane onto
which planets are being projected for the purpose of finding
longitudes is *oscillating*. The plane in use at birth and the plane
in use in the Tithi Pravesha chart of a year later are different. When
we are trying to fix the starting point of the zodiac, does it make
sense to have the "plane of zodiac" vary from day to day?

Vishnunabhi plane chitrapaksha ayanamsa is a new addition in JHora
7.1. It is essentially Lahiri ayanamsa only, but takes a fixed mean
plane. Thus, when we find planetary longitudes at birth and in an
annual Tajaka/Tithi Pravesha chart later, the same fixed zodiacal
plane is used to project planets in both cases.

It is more consistent and logical.

This makes very little difference in natal charts (unless a planet is
on a border), but makes a considerable difference in the Tithi
Pravesha charts. TP Time can change by 5-10 min and lagna in some
divisional charts may change in TP charts. Based on my experiments, I
am convinced that this works better than the regular Lahiri

As the author of JHora, I put the defaults that I believe give better
results to people. So I made this fixed plane Lahiri ayanamsa
variation the new default. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Default Ayanamsa in Jhora 7.1 = Lahiri (Chitrapaksha)
Default Ayanamsa in Jhora 7.1b2 = Vishnu-nabhi Plane (Chitrapaksha)

Is this a deliberate change? If yes, could you kindly explain your
rationale for doing so?

Thank you.

Yogi, Saha Yogi, Ava Yogi etc

From: Ramadas Rao <>
Date: Wed, Apr 2, 2008 at 3:01 AM


Dear Chi.Narasimha,
We know that there are 27 Yogas starting from Vishkumbha to Vaidhriti.Now the 1st Yoga Vishkumbha's Nakshatra is Pushyami,so it is basis of calculating Yoga point in a chart.So the Nakshatra Pushyami starts from 3 signs 3 Degrees and 20'.So here is the calculation for Yoga point in a chart :
Add Rashis 3-3-20 to the sum of longitudes of Surya and Chandra in a chart and this is nothing but the Yoga Point.This point has some Nakshatra and the ruler of this Nakshatra becomes the Yogi Planet.The Rashi lord where this Yoga point falls is called Saha Yogi or duplicate Yogi.Similarly by adding this Yoga point to 6 Rashis ,we get what is called as Ava Yogi Point and the Nakshatra ruler of this Ava
Yogi point is called Ava Yogi planet.

Similarly we have Dagdha Rashis or burnt Rashis or zero Rashisor Tithi Shoonya Rashis.The planets poisted in these Rashis become weak and will not give auspicious results if the planets are benefic one and if the planets are malefic,they give auspicious results while posited in these Dagdha Rashis.The lords of these Dagdha Rashis are called Tithi Shoonya Planets and such planets if posited in Dagdha Rashis they lose their benefic characters and do bad for the native.
The Dagdha Rashis are based on each Tithi.
1) Prathama Tithi --Tula and Makara
2) Dwiteeya Tithi ---Dhanu and Meena
3) Triteeya Tithi ----Simha and Makara
4) Chaturthi Tithi ---Vrishabha and Kumbha
5) Panchami Tithi ---Mithuna and Kanya
6) Shasti Tithi ------Mesha and Simha
7) Sapthami Tithi ---Kataka and Dhanu
8) Ashtami Tithi ----Mithuna and Kanya
9) Navami Tithi -----Simha and Vrischika
10) Dashami Tithi ---Simha and Vrischika
11) Ekadashi Tithi ---Dhanu and Meena
12) Dwadahsi Tithi --Tula and Makara
13) Trayodashi Tithi -Vrishabha and Simha
14) Chaturdashi Tithi - Meena,Mithuna,Kanya and Dhanu
15) Paurnima Tithi ----None
16) Amavasya Tithi ---None.
The above aspects are given in Vidya Madhaveeyam and Shri H.R.Sheshadri Iyer has used them extensively in analysing the horoscopes.
I hope this helps.

With Shri Hari Vaayu Guru Naama Smarana,
Ramadas Rao.
