The Janata Dal was formed on the 11 October 1988 at 1:18′ PM IST at Bangalore, India. the Rasi Chart is placed alongside.
In India, a common saying for this party is – दल बदल बदल के दलदल कर दिया (dala badala badala ke daladala kara diyā) meaning that the leaders of this party have create a dirty swamp by chaning parties all the time. This reference is to its Capricorn Lagna which represents swamps and quick sand which sucks everything and anything down and under. Lagna is the reputation.
Capricorn rises (Lagna) showing its primary ideology centered around a poverty related theme of the upliftment of the poor and weaker sections of society. Rahu in the second house shows that its primary membership (family-2nd house) shall consist of people cutting across all religions and shall have a strong Minority/Muslim support. The tenth house shows the leadership and the tenth lord Venus in the 8th house shows that the leaders will be people who have sacrificed considerably and suffered many hardships in life. The Combination of Venus with Ketu and Saturn in trines does indicate that some of them shall be very determined and idealistic persons. Since the expansive Jupiter is placed in the fifth house and also in the tenth house from Leo (Paka Lagna for the leaders), this party shall offer the maximum opportunity for its leaders to become Prime Ministers and it is a matter of fact that although the Janata Dal or its previous incarnation as Janata Party had the smallest tenures of governance, the largest number of Prime Ministers came from this party. Morarji Desai came to power in 1979 in the elections following the emergency and he was upstaged by his deputy prime Minister Devi Lal who helped Chaudhary Charan Singh to gain power. Later V.P.Singh also came to power and he too was upstaged by Chandrasekhar who became the Prime Minister. Finally H.D.Deve Gowda who was replaced by I.K.Gujral also became Prime Ministers. Their stints were short of about a year each as promised by Lagna Lord Saturn. Thus, it is evident that whenever Janata Dal/party came to power, the first Prime Minister was always replaced by another. This is indicated by the 8th house placement of the 10th Lord showing Duryoga within the period of power itself. The second leader is indicated by Mars and the coming of Mars will indicate the loss of power by the Party itself in the elections that would follow as Mars is very inimical to Saturn and has Papargala on it. This is further confirmed by the 8th house placement of the Mars and Moon in the Navamsa Chart.
However the 8th house position does not auger well for their permanent association and since the A5 (Mantrapada) is also in Leo with Venus, these leadership maybe changed frequently. A slogan commonly used for the Janata Dal is “Dal badal badal ke dal dal kar diya” i.e. by switching from one party to another and by forming so many subsidiary and affiliated parties, the entire political scenario of the JD has become very muddy (& dirty by implication).
The ninth house placement of the Sun, Moon and Mercury is the greatest fortune of the party showing that alliances (7th Lord Moon) will always be very favorable (conjoins 9th Lord) for acquiring political power (Mercury in exaltation), but at the cost of the alliance partner (i.e. the alliance partner shall lose popularity like the weak Moon in this chart). The placement of the Moon in the 8th house under eclipse by Ketu and Mars in the Navamsa threatens the political existence of its partners in the places where it shall come to power with such alliances.
POWER: The coming of power or rise in politics is seen from the fifth house and Lagna. Lagna Lord Saturn is in Sagittarius owned by Jupiter in the fifth house. Thus Jupiter holds the key to political ascendancy. ever since its inception, the antardasa of Jupiter has come only once from June 1995 to October 1997 during which period it enjoyed political power (excluding its prior incarnation as the Janata party).
- The immediate period till September 2000 is not promising as Saturn antardasa in Rahu dasa can be difficult.
- The forthcoming period of Mercury antardasa in Rahu Dasa from September 2000 to March 2003 shall see it coming to power in some of the Northern States.
- There will be a marked change in its thinking and it shall shed off the weight of its alliance partners who will suffer very badly. There will be verbal duets with the alliance partners and the latter will also recover lost ground.
- Since Satrupada is in Virgo with the Sun, Moon and Mercury in it, there may be strange alliances with erstwhile foes and stranger enmity with erstwhile friends. The opposition partied to JD will prove to be stronger as Mercury is exalted.
- Worship of Sri Vishwanath, Dakshinamoorty or the Guru in any form is advisable at all times.
