Until 1946 the map of Greece kept changing shape with small regions moving in and out of the conglomeration of independent states. A civil war followed in the aftermath of World War II. Two decades of democracy ended abruptly when the Greek coup d’état took place on 21 April 1967 [Friday, Śukla Dvādaśī (Me), Pūrva phālguṇa nakṣatra], just weeks before scheduled elections, when a group of right-wing army officers led by Brigadier General Stylianos Pattakos and Colonels George Papadopoulos and Nikolaos Makarezos seized power in a coup d’etat. This coup occurred just a few days before the total lunar eclipse of April 24, 1967 (Svātī Nakṣatra).

People of Greece are basically freedom loving and Athenian Democracy is an old concept. There were many revolts and in November 1973 students occupied the Polytechnion of Athens revolting against the military regime. The military government in Greece has collapsed in 1974 and the former prime minister Konstantinos Karamanlis returned from Paris where he was in self-imposed exile. Karamanlis was sworn in at 4:00am of July 24, 1974 in Athens as prime minister and this is the ‘Democracy Chart for Modern Greece’.

One point that strikes the mind immediately is the weakness of the lords of the ninth house Aquarius – Saturn is in maraṇa kāraka sthāna in lagna while Rāhu is in debility in the sixth house. But the dharma bhāva is strong with a retrograde Jupiter blessing the chart. Two elements of the past will end while a new Jupiter rules the heavens. Rāhu in debility in Scorpio is the end of the military dictatorship while Saturn in maraṇa sthāna shows an end to the old royalty. Previously the monarchy had been abolished in 1973 and in a referendum on the issue later in 1974 Greek voters rejected re-establishing the king and voted for a presidential system. Accordingly after the November elections, when his new party, the Nea Dimokratia came to power, Karamanlis founded the Greek Republic with a new constitution in 1975. The main objective of Karamanlis was to bring Greece into the EEC which he finally did in 1980 in the very first Nārāyaṇa Daśā of Gemini having a powerful rājayoga of the lagna and fourth lord Mercury conjoining the lords of trines Venus and Saturn. The EEC was also known as the Common Market in the English-speaking world and sometimes referred to as the European Community even before it was officially renamed as such in 1993. This is the first pillar of EU (European Union).

Today the Greeks are celebrating the victory of the Left-wing party leader Alexis Tsipras, who wants to renegotiate Greece’s debt. They are calling it a rewriting of Greek history. The BBC says that “Anti-austerity Syriza party has won Greece’s general election, putting the country on a possible collision course with the EU over its massive bailout.”

If we look at the chart, the striking feature is the fifth house rājayoga showing a fun-loving (Venus is fifth lord) happy-go-lucky (Venus conjoins Mercury in Gemini) people who eat excellent food (Moon in digbala in 4th house) and are very strong, being blessed by the Mother Divine (digbala Moon).

What is unfortunate is the Scorpio Nārāyaṇa (2008-17) has not ended and the rioting and fire that started in winter of 2008 continues in the hearts of the people. This is the sixth house of ṣaḍripu (six weaknesses) where a debilitated Rāhu causes the mind to become very confused, particularly in matters of dharma (righteousness) as it is the co-lord of the ninth house.

Rāhu got into action as soon as Scorpio daśā started in the summer of 2008 and started fomenting dissent and mistrust. On 6 Dec 2008 when the Moon was in Śatabhiṣaj nakṣatra, a day ruled by Rāhu, Alexandros Grigoropoulos a 15-year-old Greek student, was killed by two policemen and Greek riots started resulted in large protests and demonstrations, which escalated to widespread rioting, with numerous rioters damaging property and engaging riot police with Molotov cocktails, stones and other objects. Demonstrations and rioting soon spread to several other cities, including Thessaloniki, the country’s second-largest city. Outside Greece, solidarity demonstrations, riots and, in some cases, clashes with local police also took place in more than 70 cities around the world! Rāhu had raised its hood and hissed venom in the air. There was a global economic depression and no single government can find a magical solution to the problems they create. People are the same everywhere – some slightly more docile others more heated. It all depends on the food and ‘daśā’.

Honestly, people are expecting some sort of miracle. Look at what has been happening. Greek financial crisis started in 2010, a year after the demonstrations. The elections of May 2012 did not get any result, so they had another election in June 17, 2012. A pro-bailout party in Greece won the votes but could not deliver the nation from the coils of the giant snake (Rāhu) that has a firm grip on the nation in the sands of Scorpio where there is no water to quench the fire that burns their throats nor any rain to bring prosperity.

Syriza promises an end to Greece’s painful austerity measures and wants to renegotiate its debt. Markets worry about a Greek debt default and a possible exit from the Eurozone which is unlikely as the yoga of Mercury, Venus and Saturn is very strong in Lagna but is presently weak being in the eighth from the daśā rāśi Scorpio. By the way, Syriza says it wants to keep the euro! Why? It’s the perennial water source during these hard times. Who in his right mind wants to let go of a hen that lays golden eggs every once in a while. If the eggs are not forthcoming, squeeze the hen and it will fall out.

Don’t expect Syriza to deliver a magic recipe during this Scorpio daśā which continues till the summer of 2017. The real changes will happen only in 2017-19 during Sagittarius Nārāyaṇa Daśā and Greece will have prosperity and become debt free in the years that will follow from 2019-26. What the world needs to do is to realise that Greece is passing through troubled times. They fight a giant snake that grips their consciousness and it is wise to lend a helping hand, to be with them in these times. A friend in need is a friend indeed. Let us be the friend they need today and tomorrow, that is after 2019, they will prove to be great friends.

Epilogue

Exactly as expected and foretold, the Greeks voted for self-respect.

Facebook Timeline Discussions:
Narayana Dasha works. The Greeks are not in amy mood to continue with their emasculation. They have started on the path of ‘self-respect’ and are likely to continue …with a NO vote. When Devani was hoping for some sort of breakthrough in April, I was surprised. Why would they yeild?
What they owe Germany is a miniscule of the amount that was physically looted from Greek Banks in WW-II …and Germany has never returned this loot. Someday they (Germany and Greece) have to settle this karma. Thats the future. For now, most Opinion Polls gave a slight margin for YES vote, but we think it maybe a NO vote thats going to made on 5 July, 2015 when the Moon is in Dhanistha Nakshatra supported by a strong rikta tithi (chaturthi) More on BBC

Final Results
Greek voters have decisively rejected the terms of an international bailout. he final result in the referendum, published by the interior ministry, was 61.3% “No”, against 38.7% who voted “Yes”. Greece’s governing Syriza party had campaigned for a “No”, saying the bailout terms were humiliating. More on BBC

I am not any BJP member or supporter as in principle I am not inclined to politics or politicians. If I had my way, it would be Ram Rājya with just one divine incarnation ruling the land for life and there would be no need for any corruption of any sort. But that’s just day-dreaming and will not happen for many centuries in India.

The Candidates

Coming back to elections in New Delhi, we have three Chief Minister hopefuls –

Kiran BediKejriwalAjay Maken
kiran-bedi3

Kiran Bedi b. June 9, 1949 at 2:10 pm in Amritsar, India (74 E 51′, 31 N 37′). She is under Saturn daśā Venus antardaśā Saturn pratyantara in Utpanna Vimśottari daśā. This modified Vimśottari daśā is used as Moon is in the third house in her chart. Saturn is a yogakāraka planet generating a powerful Vimala viparīta yoga. In addition, it is the lord of 5th house (power) in dasāṁśa exalted in lagna. This exalted śani will bring her to power just as it has already propelled her as the face of the BJP to head the Delhi Elections.
kiran_bedi_chart

kejriwal

Arvind Kejriwal b. August 16, 1968 at 11:46 pm in Hissar, India (75 E 43′, 29 N 10′). He is under Jupiter daśā Venus antardaśā and the worst Ketu Pratyantara. Ketu is māraka for the chart and is debilitated in 5th house in navāṁśa afflicting Mercury which is the giver of power. Ketu shows mistakes and impulsive decisions that will prove to be very costly in the political arena.
As indicated in my previous article, his star will shine only till this Venus antardaśā i.e. 23 Feb 2015. Thereafter, Sun antardaśā will come and this saṅkrānti doṣa will catch him and force him to change his clothes – कपडा बदलना पडेगा.

Ajay-Maken

Ajay Maken b. Jan 12, 1964 at 10:30 am (speculative, see notes below) in New Delhi, India (77 E 12′, 28 N 36′). He is under Mars daśā Venus antara Jupiter pratyantara. Mars is a rājayoga giver in this chart as it is exalted malefic in the 12th house. His wife is very lucky for him as the upapada is in the house of luck (9th bhāva) and yogakāraka Venus is in lagna. There is no doubt that the Congress party has done well to choose him as their leader for Delhi. With a strong Saturn as lagneśa in the 12th house he has the capacity to rout his challengers but the time does not favour him very much. Given the storm that is propelling the BJP he will do well to improve the figures of the Congress from the dismal showing in the previous elections to a double digit figure … say 12 seats.
ajay_maken_chart
A praśna chart was used to determine approximate birth time. Praśna Data: Jan 23, 2015, Time: 12:10 pm, New Delhi, India.
Janma Tithi = (a) Sun 8°52’ = 9 Navamī or (b) Sun + Prāṇa Tithi = 9 + 4 (caturthī) = 13 (trayodaśī) à Ajay Maken was born on Kṛṣṇa Trayodaśī (K13) … praśna seems to be working
Janma Rāśi : Praśna Navāṁśa Rāśi = Mīna, trines to Janma Rāśi Vṛścika … praśna is working
Janma Lagna Determination
Praśna navāṁśa lagna = Siṁha (Janma Lagna can be agni rāśi or kumbha); Praśna navāṁśa lagneśa Sun in Mīna (Janma Lagna can be Pisces).
Praśna Lagna = Meṣa (rātri bala rāśi) à birth is in daytime thereby eliminating Siṁha Lagna as that would be a night birth. Similarly Pisces lagna chart, which is all over the internet, is quite absurd as that would have given him a head full of hair and strong kapha prākṛti. Meṣa lagna would have made him travel all over the country for education and abroad for work. Of the two remaining options of Dhanus and Kumbha, we have preferred Kumbha lagna making him a very good man and an able fighter. He is married to Radhika Sehgal and has three children, Aarushi, Ahana and Aujaswi as a Leo saptāṁśa would indicate.

Numbers Nimitta (Omens)

The Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, which is responsible for the conduct of the February 7 assembly polls in the national capital has rejected the nominations of 230 candidates and approved the nomination papers of 693 after scrutiny. See the number ‘9’ [6+9+3 = 18, 1+8 =9] which belongs to Mars, the god of war who also rules the police and military.

After scrutiny, the highest number of valid nominations was 18 from the Burari Assembly seat and the lowest was four in the Ambedkar Nagar constituency. Mars is agin leading the numbers game as the number 18 indicates. [1+8=9]

Madness has Begun

A total of 121 first information reports have been lodged against various political parties in connection with the violation of the Model Code of Conduct in Delhi till now. According to the Office of the Chief Electoral Officer, Delhi, the highest is against AAP. The AAP party which has openly said that it does not follow rules and regulations – they are ‘anarchists’ – Kejriwal’s words, takes the lead in disobedience of laws.

54 FIR’s have been lodged against AAP → 5+4 =9 (Mars is negative)
24 against the BJP → 2+4 = 6 (Venus is negative)
26 against the Congress → 2+6 =8 (Saturn is negative)
10 against the BSP → 1+0 = 1 (Sun is negative)

The Results

Delhi Assembly Elections 70 Seats
2013 Hung Assembly 2015 Predictions
Party Won Party Win A Win B Win C Win D
Cong 8 Cong 8 8 12↑ 17↑
BJP 31 BJP 44↑ 35↑ 35↑ 35↑
AAP 28 AAP 16↓ 25↓ 21↓ 16↓
Others 3 Others 2 2 2 2

My calculations show four scenario’s. These are with four assumptions which we clarify below:

Win A
This situation will occur if Narendra Modi storm continues to blow and takes over the elections. He is the face of ‘Future Hope for India’ and people will not let go of this hope so easily. Given his work load as the Prime Minister and the fact that he is going to be in a few gatherings, this scenario is very unlikely.

Win B
This situation occurs if the people have not yet forgiven Manmohan Singh for sleeping over reforms and not retiring if his health was not good. But this scenario is unlikely as we Indians are very forgiving and forgetting by nature.

Win C
This is the most likely scenario as the Congress under Ajay Maken is bound to improve its showing while the AAP takes a little hit for its antics. Kiran Bedi will prove to be a very energetic fighter and she has the will to perform. She is a go-getter and people of Delhi need someone who will deliver then from (a) endless traffic jams (b) expensive parking (c) crime. Yes she is a police officer and she will deliver them. That’s the picture. AAP will still get some votes as we in Delhi continue to get absurd electricity bills. Looks like some people in the electric supply department are playing lottery. I had to visit my heart doctor when slapped with an electric bill of ₹85,000. I will take up the matter after the elections and a new government is in place.

Win D
This will occur if during this Ketu pratyantara Arvind Kejriwal does some more of his funny tricks like sleeping on the road or tearing down electric wires. But this is unlikely as it looks like he has matured some.

ABP News-Nielsen
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is likely to emerge as the single largest party in the coming Delhi elections with 35 seats, one short of majority, an opinion poll conducted by ABP News-Nielsen has predicted. The BJP is projected to get 29 seats while Congress is expected to get six seats in the 70-member House.
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal seems to be the most preferred candidate for chief minister of Delhi with 48%, followed by Kiran Bedi of BJP with 42%. AAP is likely to emerge as the largest party with 37% vote share, followed by BJP with 33% and Congress with 18%. As per the survey, Kejriwal is seen as more capable than Bedi in solving most problems faced by Delhiites. However, for “maintaining law and order and women’s safety”, respondents preferred Bedi over Kejriwal.
The survey found that AAP maintained its strong hold over economically weaker sections and Muslims. The party also had substantial support among voters living in slums with nearly every second voter in slums intending to vote for the party. The survey said AAP had huge support among Muslim with nearly every two in three Muslim voters intending to vote for the party in the coming elections.
The survey found that Bedi’s anointment as BJP’s CM candidate was not helping the saffron party pull in additional voters.
The survey said voters were firmly aligned to their parties with very few intending to switch sides. However, there could be some fence-sitters currently saying they “may not vote for BJP” but could change their mind later, it added.
Kejriwal marginally pipped Bedi when it came to who did more “tamasha” than work for development. The opinion poll was conducted with 6,396 respondents in 35 constituencies by ABP News-Nielsen from January 25 to January 31.
TNS for the Economic Times
AAP, led by tax-inspector-turned-activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal, could walk away with 36 to 40 seats in the 70-member legislative assembly, according to the latest findings from polling firm TNS for the Economic Times newspaper.
Let everyone lose and we shall be the happiest. No need to feed their ego, feed their spiritual growth
We admit that the prediction was completely wrong and the BJP has been defeated due to taking Kiran Bedi as their Chief Minister candidate at the last minute. One lesson we learn from this is not to take a chart at the face value without verifying the divisions. It is evident that Kiran Bedi’s dasamsa is wrong and the exalted Saturn is not her rajayoga-karaka but must be her enemy planet. D10 lagna could be either Virgo or Scorpio. Anyway, it is time she retired and allowed the regular BJP people to get back to their work. It was a 44 win situation until she entered the fray …now looks like they may just about get a double digit figure.

Recently a senior Lok Sabha MP from Orissa enquired about how long Naveen Patnaik would continue in power, and my reply was that his Mercury daśā is far from over and is responsible for his rājayoga. This daśā is for 17 years and started in 2000 AD bringing him to power in Orissa. Readers can refer to my old article ‘The next Chief Minister of Orissa’ – a prediction which conclusively proved the importance of the āruḍha lagna (image).
