Details about the chart can be read in a previous issue of the Jyotish Digest. In the chart of Y. Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR), Moon is in Mūla gaṇḍānta in the 12th bhāva. The exact position of the Moon at 1°28’ is just outside the Abhukta mūla range of 0°50’ indicating that the bay would survive. This gaṇḍānta afflicts the agni tattva and Sun is the lord of the 8th house as well in this chart.

Y.S. Raja Reddy, father of Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, was killed in a bomb attack in his native Kadapa district while he was returning to Pulivendula from his farm house in a car May 23, 1998. This murder of father incident happened in Mars daśā Moon antardaśā in the chart of YSR showing the power of the gaṇḍānta Moon to bring sudden losses and suffering. Affliction to agni tattva also afflicts father and male elders besides son.

YSR died due to a helicopter crash in a storm when the chopper was hit by lightening[1]. The accident (Mars or Ketu) and death happened on 2nd September 2009 at about 9.02 am. The accident and/or death occurred near Rudravaram in his Rāhu daśā Ketu antardaśā. It is noteworthy that Ketu conjoins Mars in the 6th house in navāṁśa. Jaimini teaches that if Mars and Ketu conjoin the 2nd or 6th bhāva in navāṁśa, then the native is killed by partner. This can mean spouse or any other important partner or someone travelling with the native. In any case, it just proves that affliction to agni tattva, which includes Sun, Mars and Ketu shows a violent sudden death, a gaṇḍānta that leaves a vacuum and everyone in shock.

If we were to follow the planet in 8th house, or 8th lord then, Saturn is in the 8th house and in Gemini navāṁśa. The 4th from this is Virgo which is occupied by Mars and Ketu in navāṁśa.

It is also noteworthy that in both the examples, either the Moon is in Lagna or the lord of Moon sign (śubhapati) is in Lagna. The direct association of the Lagna with the gaṇḍānta Moon does bring the gaṇḍānta doṣa on the native. Yet there can be some peculiar instances where this may not work, as in the next case of Anthony Hopkins.


[1] Mercury rules natural calamities and lightening is definitely ruled by Jupiter – these confirm the natal position of debilitated Jupiter aspecting the 3rd house from ārūḍha lagna showing the manner in which death is to come
