A Cloud on the Horizon for Sahara Shri Subrata Roy

By Pt. Hanumaan Mishra
Sahara
It’s raining troubles for the Sahara Shri Subrata Roy. Hostile planets, upset stars; looks like he is headed to a Gorge. Let us see, if he is able to take on the challenges which the stars are throwing at him. Failing which he might lead to a downfall...

We always emphasize on the fact that the planets which give us pain, also provide us the medicine for that pain. In case of Sahara Shri this seems to be true word by word. It is said that the Saturn sitting in the 10th house provides fame and reputation on a grand scale. Even a person coming from a modest background will go on to achieve great heights in life. According to Lal Kitab Saturn in this house always gives the best result. However, if the native is doing something related to Sun and Mars then the results might be bad. As a matter of fact, Lal Kitab says in harsh words that such a situation can bring negative results for the native.

As per the principles of Lal Kitab, the investment of Sahara Group in real estate and sports will not be considered good. However, there are a few astrologers who are there to guide the Sahara Group, but the question arises as to why they have let the Group go for such attempts. In the Kundali of Sahara Shri Subrata Roy, Markesh is in the planet Mars. This is a positive indication which will produce some good results. Since the Markesh is in Mars, it is not a fact which can be ignored.

This can be explained more clearly with the help of an example. Let us say that we have a family rivalry with another family. That family never skips an opportunity to pull you down. A new member is born in that family who grows up to be is a fearless and strong person. That person develops a strong friendship with you and your family by helping you at the time of need. Although he is your friend but that still does not mean that you will make him the owner of your family. But, Sahara Shri Subrata Roy has committed this mistake by doing things related to Mars and Sun. Maybe he thought that Mars had a Rajyog in his Kundali which would help him to earn a lot of profits.

Keeping this in mind he gave away the ownership to that fearless friend. Though I don’t know him personally yet based on his Kundali I can say that whenever he has attempted any task on the basis of the significance of Mars the results are always unfavorable. Whenever he has tried to be daring to accomplish a task on a grand scale, he has never succeeded. Daring and fearlessness are traits of Mars and actions taken on the basis of Mars are not favorable for Sahara Shri Subrata Roy. Mars and Sun are considered to be the significators of strength and fearlessness. The person with Saturn and Marakesh Mars in the 10th House should not lock horns with Sun and Mars. Also, he should not do any task related to this. Sahara Shri Subrata Roy has committed this mistake.

Sun indicates that he should not lock horns with the people at the influential positions. Mars indicates tasks related to sports like cricket. Owning a cricket team is related to Mars. Now the question arises that the Sahara has previously dressed the Indian cricket team with its name on the uniform. But that was the good effect of Mars as it was that was a task supported by Mars but was not related to Mars. However, the decision to own a cricket team will not be that favorable. The real estate tasks are related to Mars and Sun and they are supported by the Sun. This prediction is based on Saturn and Mars. Normally, all the astrologers have a Kundali of Subrata Roy which might not be accurate. However, the place of Saturn will still be the same and the Marakesh in Ascendant will also be auspicious. Therefore, I have based my predictions on Saturn and Mars. On the basis of the transit of Sun, Saturn and Rahu (Ascending Lunar Node), it can be said that the time period from May to July will not be very good. If the remedial measures of the related planets are not performed on time then they might get the results of the 12th house. The 12th house is related to abroad, hospital and jail. This means Subrata Roy can get any of these results.
