A lot has been already written on AstroSage about Mahatma Gandhi; hence, on his this birthday, we will discuss about his advocacy. Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn, Venus, and Mars are mainly responsible to make someone barrister. Out of all these planets, Jupiter and Venus are responsible for giving the reasoning power. While Mercury is the significator of speech, Saturn blesses with the ability to do justice and reach to the depth of a particular matter. Mars is known to be the significator of courage and self-confidence. If all these planets are favorable and strong in one’s Kundali (birth-chart), the native becomes a successful lawyer. Otherwise, some glitches are noticed if these planets appear unfavorable. Other than these planets, considering second, sixth, seventh, ninth, as well as Karma house (tenth house) is equally considerable.

Let us now take a glance at impact of these planets on Mahatma Gandhi’s Kundali.


Mahatma Gandhi Ji’s Horoscope


In Mahatma Gandhi’s Kundali, almost all the planets associated with the study of law are placed properly. Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Jupiter are in Kendra (centralized). Saturn is posited in the second house (house of speech). Libra ascendant is considered auspicious for becoming a good decision maker. It is because of these planets only that beside obtaining studies for law, Mahatma Gandhi had also practiced law as a barrister. Though, this is another fact that due to positioning of Saturn in second house, he used to say no strictly for fighting wrong and false cases. Though Mahatma Gandhi didn’t fight many legal cases, but he was a good and knowledgeable lawyer. Due to the presence of other Yogas in his Kundali, his fame will last forever.

Now, it’s turn to analyze the reasons behind greatness of another man who was born this day i.e. Lal Bahadur Shastri.

Bhadra Yoga Made Lal Bahadur Shastri Gentle Person


Goddess Sharda (Goddess situated in Mehar) blessed Sharda Prasad Shrivastava with such a boon that changed his life for good. Yes, we are talking about India’s former Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri. His father was Mr. Sharda Prasad Shrivastava. He was a native of Mughal Sarai, Uttar Pradesh. Meaning of the name Sharda Prasad is ‘Prasad (sacred gift) of Devi Sharda’. The Devi is believed to be a manifestation of Goddess Saraswati. Her temple is located at a place known as Mehar. Possibly, it is her only temple. As his name was Sharda Prasad and his profession was teaching; hence, Maa Sharda’s blessings are obvious for him. As a result of this glory only, Sharda Prasad got Lal Bahadur Shastri, a son as precious as a gem.


Lal Bahadur Shastri Horoscope


Born under Sagittarius ascendant, Lal Bahadur Shastri’s lord of ascendant is posited in fifth house. Due to association of ascendant lord with house of intellect, it is natural for the native to be intelligent. Also, ascendant lord is Jupiter; hence, intelligence and erudition are naturally seen in his personality. I would like to state an example of his intelligence. When Lal Bahadur Shastri was the Home Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Police administration implemented Lathi Charge on the students, during a cricket match. As a result, students got outraged and under the supervision of student association’s leader, a group of students met Lal Bahadur Shastri. They requested to keep police out of there and said that red cap should not be seen in the ground from tomorrow. The reason behind addressing Police administration with red cap is that during those days, cap of police used to be of red color. Concluding this, Lal Bahadur Shastri politely agreed and asked the tailors of Lucknow to stitch Khaki colored caps, throughout the night. The following morning, Police came in the ground; however, red cap was not seen anywhere. After this, the students again met Lal Bahadur Shastri, on which he gave them the solution in his own way. This incident proves his intelligence and maturity to respond to situations. This proves his ability to provide solution for everything very easily and he got this trait due to planet Mercury.

In the Kundali of Lal Bahadur Shastri, Mercury being exalted is posited in tenth house, i.e. the house of sovereignty. Such a position gives him the knowledge of clean politics. About the result of this Yoga, it has been stated that a native belonging to such Yoga is blessed with abundant intellect and glory. Such a person gets appreciation because of his/her working style and influential talks. Not only this, but he/she is courageous like lion and destroys enemies. Depiction of this fact was seen in the life of Lal Bahadur Shastri in the battle of year 1965, when India attacked its enemies for the very first time and took away Sargodha and Sialkot. We were about to enter Lahore, when Russia requested to call the battle off. Hence, we can say that Bhadra Yoga gave extreme benefits to Lal Bahadur Shastri. He was himself gentle and used to treat indecent people in such a way that they also willingly got transformed into noble beings.

This means that Mercury itself, or with the help of others planets, gave Lal Bahadur Shastri the pride of becoming India’s Prime Minister. Like Yoga of lord of ninth and tenth house in tenth house is considered to be an excellent Raj Yoga. Tenth house is known as the Rajya Bhav (house of sovereignty) and ninth house is the house of destiny. Due to presence of both these combinations in Kendra (centre) or Trikon, it leads to the formation of excellent Yoga. In the Kundali of Lal Bahadur Shastri, Sun (lord of ninth house) is posited in the tenth house with Mercury, the lord of tenth house. Therefore, India got its second and great Prime Minister in the form of Lal Bahadur Shastri.
