With a lot of fanfare, just like the previous time the Narendra Modi government was sworn in for the second time at sunset (Rudra gāyatrī muhūrta) on Thursday, 30 May 2019. Narendra Modi has just been returned to power with a huge majority in the Public Assembly (Lok Sabha) winning 303 MP seats (21▲).


The three crucial factors of jyotiṣa – Lagna, Sun and Moon are all vargottama!

  • Vargottama Lagna benediction of Prajāpati → Mṛtyuṅjaya Mahādeva » बुद्धि-बल buddhi-bāla Intelligence, Physical energy
  • Vargottama Chandra benediction of Rudra » आयुस Āyus: the party will complete its term without incident and is protected from various troubles that ails politics in general.
  • Vargottama Sūrya benediction of Vāsudeva » धन Wealth of every kind that sustains the people, dharma (righteousness) being the highest.

Compressed Daśā

Two daśā are surely applicable in this chart – Ⓐ Standard Vimśottari compressed to the full term of Five years and Ⓑ Aṣṭottari Daśā also compressed. The conditions for aṣṭottari daśā are (1) day-time birth (7.05pm before sunset 7.13pm) during kṛṣṇa pakṣa and (2) lagneśa Mars in kendra, koṇa to Rāhu.
