Unlike yesteryears, when they had to remain in virtual house arrest till the Prime Minister’s Independence Day address was over, the people of Chandni Chowk converged on the flag hosting area in thousands to listen to the maiden Independence Day speech by the Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi from the ramparts of the Red Fort. The people moved in long queues, patiently waiting for their turn to take their place in the meeting ground in a rare show of discipline. It was as if they had already been inspired and motivated much before the inspirational address by the PM even began.
After nearly a decade, the country witnessed a Prime Minister speaking extempore and his speech straddled a whole gamut of issues from toilets to cutting edge technology. Devoid of a barrage of announcements or any big bang reforms, Mr. Modi tried to inspire the nation to – arise, awake and deliver the goods to prove to the whole world the strength of this great nation to withstand challenges and obstacles of the highest order.
Taking inspiration from Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo, Mr. Modi effortlessly captivated all Indians with his very address: “Here is your prime sevak, not Prime Minister standing before you to relate the problems of the nation and its possible panacea. No Raajneeti (politics), only Rashtraneeti” (nation building).
Mr. Modi provided direction, spoke of a digital India, invited global companies to enter the manufacturing sector in this country, announced Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojna for the poorest of the poor, Sansad Adarsh Gramin Yojna for restructuring rural India, struck a conciliatory note for the neighbourhood inviting the SAARC nations, including Pakistan, to jointly fight against poverty and communal violence.
Ending the era of of the hallowed Planning Commission and replacing it with a “super think tank” that would understand and address the contemporary problems of federal India.
Small little things, which matter a lot, got prominent place in Mr. Modi’s speech. That was the difference he wanted to bring in his administration and his address too. The focus of his address was on the common people, women and rural India – that’s the impression he created.
But was an honest address made by the PM or a political gimmick? Did it really come from the heart of the PM or was it just another exhibition of showmanship? This is the million dollar question before the nation. This article aims to look at matter astrologically. It is an astrological perspective on the PM’s address and how far it will come good.
The PM’s address to the nation began at 7:33 AM and continued up to 8:38AM on 15th August 2014, making it a 65-minute address to the nation. From astrological point of view, the whole address was divided into two parts. The first one, from 7:33AM to 8:20AM under Leo Ascendence/Lagna and the second one from 8:20AM to 8:38AM under Virgo Ascendence/Lagna. Let us first analyze the chart under Leo ascendence.
Third house and its lord speaks about the proposal made and its authenticity. Here in the above chart, the third lord Venus is posited in the twelfth house(though Venus twelfth bhava is not bad) and conjucted with Sun and Jupiter. Mars and Saturn posited in the third house. The above planetary position reveals the honest intention of Mr. Modi. But translation of words into deeds will be delayed more than he has bargained for. The eleventh lord Mercury (lord of achievement) posited in the Lagna indicates realistic translation of his words into action.
In the Virgo ascendence/lagna i.e from 8:20 AM to 8:30 AM, the third house is aspected by Jupiter although the third lord Mars is posited in the second house with Saturn. The eleventh lord Moon is posited in the seventh house and aspecting lagna. The ninth lord Venus is also in the eleventh house (house of achievement). Exalted Rahu is in the lagna and aspected by Moon, the eleventh lord. As such Modi’s address, during Virgo ascendence, was more intense and whatever he said during this period will be executed much earlier than anything he said during Leo asc. So we can expect the project related to building of toilets in schools, special ones for girls, sansad adarsh gramya yojna, the cooperation he sought from SAARC countries for fighting against poverty and communalism, abolition of Planning Commission and formation of a new body. Center-state relations would blossom while states would get more powers rom an astrological point of view. His appeal to corporate houses to contribute their might in projects like building of toilets will be heartily welcomed and the project is likely to materialize even before the due date.
The above two charts reveal an honest intention of the PM. Again to substantiate real transformation of ideas, we will have to look into Narendra Modi’s swearing in chart, his natal chart and the chart of independent India.

In order to look into the development of common people in rural India through the sansad adarsh gramya yojna of Mr.Modi, one has to consider the position of Moon and Saturn in the swearing in chart. Moon stands for the masses and Saturn stands for down-trodden or underprivileged people. In the above chart, Moon posited in the seventh house and Saturn in the lagna aspecting each other unequivocally speaks about common masses. Saturn aspected by Jupiter posited in the ninth house indicates a positive effort in this direction. Thus people of this country may expect very good results in Modi’s plan of reconstructing rural India. The Rahu is posited in the lagna with Saturn, its house lord is aspecting Rahu. As such, the project will take a concrete shape but will be delayed.
The ninth and twelfth house and their lords indicate foreign affairs. In the said chart, the ninth and twelfth lord Mercury is in ninth house and conjucted with Jupiter. As a result, Modi’s foreign policy will be admired globally and he will take some exemplary steps relating to foreign affairs. The seventh lord (stands for opposition) is in twelfth house and lagna is aspected by Jupiter. It indicates whatever threats comes from opposing country will be tackled smartly and India’s position will grow stronger in the coming years. The tenth lord/house stands for government/governance. In this chart, Moon, the tenth lord is in seventh aspecting lagna and conjucted with lagna lord indicates good governance. But Sun, the significator of government, is posited in the eighth house and Mars- stands for power in the twelfth house also Moon conjucted with Ketu indicates there will be some problem in the government. An element of opposition within the government will try to sabotage Modi, he will be outsmarted by Mr.Modi because of Jupiter’s effect. Even the ninth lord in the ninth house (Mercury) conjucted with Jupiter indicates the government under Modi will do exceeding well in the fields of communication, health and education. IT and hi-tech industry will prosper spectacularly. Because of Venus effect, urban housing jewellery and filigree industry will get real boost.
To justify things further, we will look into Narendra Modi’s birth chart and that of Independent India.
Narendra Modi’s Birth Chart Independent India’s Chart
In Narendra Modi’s chart, he is undergoing Moon-Rahu period till 09/09/2014 followed by Moon-Jupiter period upto 09/01/2016. Both the periods are very good and Mr. Modi will have no problem whatsoever in delivering goods. Moon being the ninth lord posited in the lagna and conjucted with lagna lord creates Neech-Bhanga-Rajyog. This yog will help Modi to translate his words into action and he will come back to the people with a very good report card in the next election scheduled to be held in 2019. At that time, he will be undergoing Moon-Ketu period which will give him very good results.
The natal chart of independent India reflects Sun-Venus period upto 22/07/2015, a good period. The lagna lord Venus conjucted with ninth and tenth lord Saturn will provide good results. Again, five planets in movable sign give an indication that India will be a world force and will come to occupy a super power like position in the years to come.
Mr. Modi’s appeal to the SAARC countries, including Pakistan, to fight against poverty, communal violence and to restore regional peace and prosperity will be accepted. This will speed up from 22/07/2015 as Moon major period will continue in independent India’s chart for 10 years and Moon, being the third lord in third house, will further this cause.
Third house stands for younger siblings, self confidence, short trip, proposals etc. Thus, in the SAARC region where India is projected as a big brother, regional cooperation will improve with India’s initiative. This will help Mr. Modi to grow as a regional leader who can contribute globally.
All said and done, the beneficial Moon major period for 10 years in India’s chart along with Moon major period (ninth lord in Modi’s chart) and Venus major period in swearing in chart indicates overall growth of image for both Modi and India. Mr. Modi as such will carve out a special place in the history of Indian democracy.
