Eknath Shinde took oath as the 19th Maharashtra chief minister on Thursday 30th June 2022 at 19:37 hrs at Mumbai after along political crisis which went for over ten days shifting first to Gujarat, then to Assam and finally to Goa. The events of Thursday mark an end to days of political instability and surprises in Maharashtra. Let’s examine the Oath taking chart to understand the longevity of the newly formed coalition government.  

The lagna is Sagittarius; a dual sign its lord Jupiter is placed in 4th in its own sign Pisces and this happens to be the day lord also, which is a good sign for the longevity of this coalition government, but there are many negative factors also in the chart. It’s interesting to note that Sh. Uddhav Thackeray, the outgoing chief minister took the oath on Thursday {28th Nov. 2019} and in my experience it always gives a conflict running within. 

The 7th house in the chart represents opposition and has Sun placed in it. The lagna lord of 7th house Mercury is in 6th house i.e. 12th from its own house. This indicates that opposition will always be on its toes to keep the coalition government under pressure. The affliction to 5th house given by Mars, Rahu and Ketu along with presence of Venus, a natural signification for entertainment in 6th house of litigation  indicate not so pleasant relations with entertainment industry in the coming few months. Moon’s presence in 8th house afflicted by Mars aspect is known as “Bala Arishta Yoga” and may give serious troubles to newly formed coalition in the coming few months especially after 12th July 2022 when Saturn makes a comeback in the sign Capricorn. Thus the first six months are going to be very crucial for this government. 

“Ket Bikaye Khet” is a popular saying among north India astrologers regarding Ketu a shadowy planet which means that Ketu dasha period leads to destruction of wealth/status unexpectedly. In the birth chart of Sh. Devendra Fadnavis {22nd July 1970; 06:00hrs; Nagpur; Maharashtra; Data courtesy Sh. K.N. Rao Astro Data Bank} his Ketu dasha started from 17th June 2022, which along with running sadhesati kept him away from the top post at the very last moment. 

Hindu/Vedic astrology is unique and can pinpoint future course of events very accurately by using different methods. I humbly state that astrologer can become wrong but this super study was/is/will always right.
