Hi, it occurred to me yesterday that I could and should have used the Tara tables technique for the election on account of there being some question about Obama’s birth time as Tara is a non time dependent technique, where you do not need the correct lagna, just the right Moon Nakshatra.

In Tara, the 3rd, 5th and 7th are bad, the rest are good. Bad lord in bad tara is good, good lord in good tara is good. Other stuff is bad. Learn all about it in the Nakshatras audio course at www.vedic-astrology.net.

Obama was running Saturn/Mercury – Saturn is the progressed Nakshatra lord of the 1st Tara and it is placed in the 5th Tara, which is bad and limits his success in office and shows the US economy is not going to be as good as many people are expecting. This Saturn could lose him an election as well, however, antardasa lord Mercury was great, so he kept his office. Mercury was great as being the lord of the 2nd Tara in the 1st Tara. Very nice, so he keeps his office and during mercury antardasa the economy will stablize. But when he goes into Ketu antardasa December 12, 2014, Ketu is the 3rd Tara lord placed in the 8th Tara, which will hinder improvements and things will go backwards again.

Romney was running Moon/Rahu. Moon is the 1sdt Tara lord placed in the 5th Tara, bad, obstructs success. Rahu was the 3rd tara lord in the 1st Tara, bad again. So he could have only lost.

Every time I use the Tara tables I am shocked at how easy and accurate they are…I predicted many things about my new Rahu dasa beginning with Tara tables, but somehow just did not think of using it for the election, so there it is now, another wonderful technique.


Obama’s 51st year Varshaphala does have the potential for a downfall due to saturn and mars joining the 5th cusp and the 5th rules fall from royalty, but will it happen? HIs Raja Saham, part of kingship is in Aries, a good placement. Its lord Mars has good pancha and dvadasa strength, so it is a good lord. It has the aspect of a friendly jupiter and the conjunction of a troubling Saturn. Saturn, however, is in great shape at 16 pancha and it rules the public 7th house. Jupiter is also in pretty good shape with high pancha and dwadasa strenghts. Jupiter is also the 10th lord, so very important. And it does have more friendly tajika aspects than unfriendly. It is not a great chart, could never become president with this varshaphala, but it is good enough to escape a downfall.

He will be running Sun/Ve in mudda dasa. Sun is strong and in Leo and rules the presidency. VEnus is the year lord and a decent planet as well. So the dasa timing is pretty good. In D60 Sun rules the 10th cusp and is placed in the first. Venus rules the D45 lagna and is placed in the lagna. So not a bad dasa either. with patyayini dasa he is running Jupiter Mars, which are in a seperating but friendly aspect to each other, so looks safe for obama.

Romney has his year lord Mars in the 9th with plenty of friendly aspect and mars is decent in Pancha strength, it is however, conjunct the 8th cusp and it is the 10th cusp lord, so not a great year lord. THe Muntha lord jupiter has less than 10 Pancha strength, not good. The raja saham as well as the punya saham are both in mercury’s sign and mercury is very weak in pancha strenth with just 8.7 points. Mercury has no friends, just saturn as enemy. He will be running Jupiter Mars in patyayini dasa during the election. Jupiter has a low pancha strength, mars is just mediocre. Not good enough to win an election. GOod enough to keep the office if he was already president, but not good enough to jump into the whitehouse.

Neither candidate has a great varshaphala, but Obama just needs to avoid a fall, he does not have to climb higher. So I think he will win based on varshaphala. But it will not be a great victory or a large margin. He will just keep his job.


Looking at Obama’s Rasi he is running Saturn Mercury. Saturn is in its own rasi in the 12th, which gives him strength to weather a lot of setbacks. Saturn is aspected by Sun moon and mars, three enemies, though mars is sleeping and so cannot hold saturn back, but also by two friends Mercury and Venus, venus is sleeping, but mercury is good, so saturn is so so. Really, we want a president with a great dasa lord if the country is going to advance…
The antardasa lord Mercury is agitated by the Sun, and you can see that agitation in his life recently. Mercury is aspected by the Moon an enemy and has no help of any friends. Not a good antardasa lord. In teh Dasamsa, Mercury is in a friend’s Rasi, Leo, but due to being conjunct the Sun in the rasi, it is still not a good mercury. Antardasa lord Mercury is also in the 8th from Saturn in the Rasi and in the 7th from the lagna where it has no dig bala. Not a good antardasa lord at all.

Romney’s Dasa lord Moon is in the 6th, a good place for his moon since it is waning, then it is delighted by the conjunction of Jupiter, so a good dasa lord. In the Daamsa, Moon is in Aries and its lord is exalted. No wonder he has managed to get to the election. The antardasa lord Rahu in the Rasi is really bad, it is in the 8th from the dasa lord, Moon/Rahu tends to be a tough period, and Rahu’s lord is DB, joined the SUn, has no real friends aspecting it and its strongest aspect is from his enemy the Moon. So a terrible lord of Rahu. Rahu itself is aspected by two planets in bad dignity and no planets in good dignity. So a terrible Rahu in the Rasi chart. Not to mention Rahu in the first is just not a great place for politics in general. In the Dasamsa, Rahu is in Cancer, gives the results of the Moon, which is good, and it is aspected by a bunch of planets in good dignity. So not bad at all overall. Better I would say than Obama’s antardasa lord…

For clarity, we should analyze some other Vargas. In the 40th, the varga of most auspicious and most inauspicious things Antardasa lord Rahu in romney’s chart is in the sign of Mars and Mars is sleeping in Gemini, agitated by the Sun, and joined by enemy Mercury, not a good mars at all. In fact, with his terrible mars, he is not the best person to be Commander in Chief of the US forces… Mars is aspected by its friend moon and friend Jupiter, but Jupiter is sleeping and so no help, so it is not a good antardasa lord at all in the D40. Compare that to Obama’s lord of Rahu in 2008 which was Mars in its own rasi in the lagna! Romney’s D40 is just not good enough to give something as auspicious as winning this election.

Obama’s Dasa and Antarda lords are both in Cancer in the D40, their enemy rasi but a water rasi, so they are both thirsty there, but can still do something. Thirsty would never make a president, but can keep one in office. And we know that Obama cannot feel good about winning the election as he knows a lot of people are not happy with the happenings in the country and he knows he cannot do all that much and he will just not have the devotion placed upon him that he had in 2008 when people looked towards him as a savior. So his victory can only be thirsty in this election.,

In shastiamsa Romney’s Rahu is in Taurus, ruled by Venus who is thirsty in cancer, not good enough to win a presidency. Obama’s Shastiamsa has his Dasa and antardasa lords both placed in the sigh of Jupiter, in natural nuetral rasis, and it does not get any help, just a little hurt, so a sub par antardasa lord, but his Dasa lord Saturn has the strong aspect of Friend VEnus and friend Mercury. And again, he has the presidency, mediocre will keep him there, he needs a downfall to loose it.

So vimshottari with Dasas favors Obama once again. So that makes both Jaimini techniques and Vimshottari with Vargas in his favor. I wonder what the Varshaphala looks like…


Jaimini’s Yogadas are the mist single effective technique that I have found for predicting elections. I have never failed an election with these techniques, but they have the drawback of being very time sensitive as the Drekkana and Navamsa vargas are involved and we use the Ghatika Lagna which travels five times as fast as the regular lagna and that makes it change Navamsas in under 3 minutes, so I am a bit skeptical using the technique for this election due to the possible errors in Obamas birth time. Now if I was seriously into politics, I would take the time to check obama’s time thoroughly, which I really should do, but it is a nice day outside and I am just not into politics…

Obama’s Dasa lord Saturn is only forming one 2 point raja yoga based on Jaimini’s Yogadasa formed by Saturn rasi aspectin the 7th in the Rasi and in the Navamsa. Not a very strong Dasa lord.
His Antardasa Lord Mercury, however, is better forming one 2 point yoga and one 3 point yoga by influencing the Bhava angd Ghatika lagnas in the Rasi and by influencing the 7th in all of the Rasi, Navamsa and drekkana.

Romney’s Dasa Lord Moon is forming two 2 point yogas by influencing the Bhava and HOra Lagnas in teh Rasi and the Bhava and Ghatika Lagnas in the Drekkana. His antardasa lord Rahu is forming two 2 point raja yogas as well by influcencing the Rasi lagna as well as the 7th in the Rasi and Drekkana and by influencing the drekkana lagna in the rasi and drekkana.

Obama’s antardasa lord Mercury, having a 2 point and a 3 point is stronger than romney’s two 2 point yogas as a 3 point yoga is twice as strong as a 2 point. So Obama has the better antardasa lord by 1 point.

Obama’s dasa lord has only one 2 point raja yoga as compared to romney’s two 2 point yogas, but Obama’s antardasa lord makes up for it and so overall, they are coming into the election the same strong. But since Obama does not have to move up and Romney’s does, it means Obama holds his place and effectively wins the election.

So both Jaimini techniques are favoring Obama…

Next posts will look at the vargas with Vimshottari and then Varshaphala after which all the most important techniques would have been analyzed and then we should have a pretty clear picture, but at this point, it looks like Obama…
