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…


Hello All,

today I have the time to look at some Jaimini Raja yogas in respect to the Election. This technique I taught in the second Jaimini Course which covered the Pada Chapter:

Benefics in the Sva, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th, and 9th Bhavas – a king.
Also, inauspiscious planets in the 3rd and 6th.
From the 1st or 7th ruler also in the preceding manner.
Mixed therein – equality.
Roving/poverty in reverse.

So basically, malefics joined the AK, 1st or 7th lords, or in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 8th and 9th will cause a downfall or setback, benefics there raise a person up. Malefics in 3rd and 6th from the AK, lagna lord or 7th lord raise a person up while benefics there cause a setback. And we count these Bhavas forwards only due to Jaimini using the word Bhava in the sutra.

To use this with the dasas we have to look at the Dasa lords position from any of these and we have to see if the dasa lord is the AK, 1st lord or 7th lord. If it is, we have to look at all the planets from the Dasa lord to see how it will do.

Obama is running Sa/Me. Saturn is the Lagna lord and his AK, from it, Jupiter is in the 2nd, which is good, but Ketu is there as well, which is bad, so + 1 and – 1. Moon is in the 6th, which is good since it is waning and so a malefic. But two malefics are in the 8th, Sun and Rahu, ouch and one benefic Mercury. So his total dasa lord is 0. From the 7th lord Sun, Saturn is in 6th, so that is good, so he is at a +1 for his dasa lord Saturn.

His antardasa lord Mercury is in the 1st from the 7th lord, so good, then it is in the 8th from Saturn the AK and Lagna lord, so good again, so Mercury is a +2. Looks like Mercury can save him, not to mention that Mercury is a friend of Saturn.

Romney is running Mo/Ra. Moon is waning and joined the 7th lord Jupiter, so -1. From Mercury the lagna lord Moon is in the 9th, so -1 again. Then Moon is the AK, which is joined by Jupiter, +1, has Ketu in 2nd, -1, Venus in 4th, +1, Mars and Sun in 5th, -2, Mercury in 5th +1, Rahu in 8th, -1, so a totally trashed dasa lord at -3.

His Antardasa lord Rahu is in 8th from 7th lord and AK, so bad -1. Then It is in 4th from Mercury, -1 again. So -3 total.

This technique is really favoring Obama. Even if Obama’s time is off, it is not likely for Romney to win with a -3 Dasa and Antardasa lord.

This is a nice technique because it does not require perfect time, it just needs the correct lagna. The other Jaimini technique, that of Yogadas, is more accurate, but it requires very exact time. Will do that technique in the next post.


Well, it is about time that I try to predict the presidential election. Since I learned Jaimini back in 1999 I have been lucky enough to predict every presidential election and a couple governmental elections that I worked on. Every time I do it, I am just so enthralled by Jaimini! What would we do without Jaimini Sutras? It would probably be something that starts with quitting astrology:)

This year’s election has something that makes it more difficult and something that makes it easier. The one thing that makes it easier is that one of the candidates is running for reelection, which means that for him not to get elected we just have to make sure there is nothing in his chart that is causing a fall from power. The thing that makes it more difficult is that Obama’s birth data may be totally off…and as usual, I do not have time to rectify it cause I do not care enough about the lives of politicians to study them that much when I could be doing something a lore more interesting. Due to that problem, the first technique I want to try is that of Gocara from the Moon, cause we can be pretty sure his Moon sign is correct. This is not the best technique to predict an election with, but you can expect about 65% results with it, so not great, but at times when birth data is questionable, it is worth applying.

Based on Gocara/Transit of the planets from the Moon, on Election Day, November 6th, 2012, at 8PM Washington DC by which time I expect the votes to be in:

From Obama’s Moon
+Sun in 6th from Moon
Removes illness, enemies and grief. Pacification of all mental grief.

+Moon in 3rd from Moon
One gets garments, damsels, wealth, success and happiness.

-Mars in 7th from Moon
Causes quarrels with one’s spouse, eye-disease and stomach-ailment.

-Mercury in 7th from Moon
The native loses his luster and has frequent quarrels.

-Jupiter in 1st from Moon
The native will lose their wealth, intellectual clarity and position; and will also have quarrels frequently. Mental dejection.

+Venus in 5th from Moon
Leads to the favors of elders and teachers, meeting with one’s relations, or getting new ones, attainment of wealth, friends and companions, birth of children and demoralization in the army of the enemy.

+Saturn in 6th from Moon
The native will overcome both their enemies and diseases, and will kiss the mouth of their beloved having charming close lips.

So 4 good to 3 bad placements with two placements, Sun and Saturn, specifically good for overcoming enemies.

Obama’s Moon is at 3:21 into its sign, so if the rumors are true about his birth place, his Moon could be in the previous sign, unfortunately for us, so what would that do:

-Sun in 7th from Moon
Causes wearisome traveling, diseases of the stomach, and humiliation. Helplessness.

-Moon in 4th from Moon
One loses trust in others, as in a mountain infested with snakes.

-Mars in 8th from Moon
Makes the native weak through bleeding, and lose wealth and honor. Mental depression, blood loss due to severe blows to the body or breaks of limbs.

+Mercury in 8th from Moon
The native will have gains, success, children, clothes, money and skill that bring joy to their heart. Victory, mental peace and increase of learning.

+Jupiter in 2nd from Moon
The native will obtain wealth and be free from enemies and will sport with the mouth of their beloved, as does a bee with the lotus.

-Venus in 6th from Moon
The native will suffer humiliation, disease, and mental torment. Trouble from enemies. Reduces the native to abject slavery or degradation.

-Saturn in 7th from Moon
The native will wander away from home. Intimacy with female servants and distant journeys.

Five bad to 2 good, in which case he will lose, 65% chance.

When we compare his chart to the transits of the 2008 election, then the Moon in Tropical Gemini works better for him winning an election that year. so the first of the above is what we should follow, so 4 good to 3 bad.

From Romney’s Moon:
-Sun in 1st from Moon
Causes fatigue, reduces wealth, brings about diseases of the bowels, loss of wealth and wearisome journeys. Loss of good name and position, and painful work.

+Moon in 10th from Moon
Confers a position of authority and accomplishment of one’s objects. Benefit from government.

-Mars in 2nd from Moon
Causes trouble from the king and enemies, quarrels, excessive biliousness, fire accidents, robbery and disease, though the person may be like Upendra or the thunderbolt. Ailing in the body due to mental and physical grief.

+Mercury in 2nd from Moon
One will suffer humiliation, but acquires wealth. Fresh acquisition of wealth and influence, and general prosperity.

-Jupiter in 8th from Moon
Causes imprisonment, disease, intense grief, hardship on a journey, and ailments almost amounting to death. Loss of liberty, over-exertion and fatigue.

+Venus in 12th from Moon
The native gets wealth and garments, but loses some of the latter. Gains wealth in many means, acquisition of clothes.

-Saturn in 1st from Moon
The native will be troubled by poison and fire, separated from their kith and kin, will kill one of their relatives, wander in foreign countries, will have neither friends, nor a house to live in, will be hateful in appearance, poor, without children, pale in the face and a wanderer.

So 4 bad to 3 good, so Gocara/Transits from the Moon favor Obama…

Now there is a wonderful and simple ashtakavarga technique I have never taught anyone, that would be well worth looking into for this election. Basically, we look for planets in the houses counted from their natal position, so venus in 10th from venus, moon in 10th from moon, sun in 10th from sun. When a lot of planets fall into the same house from itself, affairs of that house come into play. If the ashatakavarga points are good, it is a good thing, if low, can be a bad thing.

In Obama’s Chart:
Sun is in 4th from itself
Moon is in 3rd from itself.
Mars is in 4th from itself
Mercury is in 5th from itself.
Jupiter is in 6th from itself
Venus is in 4th from itself.
Saturn is in 1th from itself.

So the most active house is the 4th due to Mars, Venus and Sun. Sun gets 4 points, mars and venus each get a remarkable 6 points, so a very good 4th – is this him being able to get away, to go home and leave seat of power? Or is it maintaining his kindom? This technique will not let us see that, we will have to look somewhere else for that, but it does show that obama will be happy with the election results regardless of what happens as the 4th is the house of happiness. If he loses, he will be happy to go home and be free of his 10th house obligations…

In Romney’s Chart:
Sun is in 9th form itself
Moon is in 9th from itself
Mars is in 10th form itself
Mercury is in 9th from itself
Jupiter is in 8th form itself
Venus is in 9th from itself
Saturn is in 4th from itself.

So the most active is the 9th due to Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus. Sun gets 5 points, Moon gets 6 points, Mercuyr gests 4 and Venus gets 5, A GREAT ninth house. But what does that have to do with the election? It does not have much to do with the election, it has to do with his religion. If he wins, he will be the first Mormon ever elected president. If he loses, he will only loose by a little most likely and it will still be the greatest day for a Mormon when it comes to a presidential election. For those of you all who are not from the US, Mormons have largely been frowned upon over the past 170 years since they originated. In their early years they suffered persecution for some differing believes and as a result, came out west, some of the first to come out west actually, and remained apart. To this day, there is still a lot of prejudice against mormons in the states surrounding Utah, such as Montana and Idaho – but those states do not have the population to make any difference in an election.

Neither of these two techniques is super accurate, like a jaimini technique, but they are really good considering that we can do it with unsure birth times. The gocara from the Moon favors Obama. The ashtakavarga technique favors Romney. If they both had favored the same person, we would have been able to make a pretty sound prediction, but since they do not, will have to look at other techniques to see which way it is going to go, but these two techniques do tell part of the story. The best Jaimini technique for prediction elections will be off if the birth time is off by even 5 minutes, and I will cover that technique, but since obama’s birth time is questionable, I thought it would be a good idea to try some non time dependent techniques to get started with.


If you watch the Ashtamangalam Number video you will be able to watch me ever so gracefully spill my counting beads. I explain that as part of the oracle and something to be read into the prediction. The prediction was a query about astrology-videos.com as I was having so many technical problems getting everything up and running. As predicted, Friday the 29th I would get my videos up and running, and s0 it was. But I was surprised that I did not need to change hosting companies in order to get the videos running. They ran with my old hosting company. I had been expecting to have a serious problem with my hosting company, spilling the beads so to speak, which would force me to move. But no, I got the vids working with them, so I just upgraded to a more powerful server with them with more hard drive space. So there were no big problems and so I figured that the spilling beads were just not that big of a deal as I had expected them to be. My expectations were, unfortunately, to come true.

Two days after getting on the new server, just a day or two away from launching, the disks on my new $2,400 per year server get corrupted and the whole website came down, along with 10 other websites I deal with. The guys at the hosting company blame me for it, saying I must have messed with the disks. I did not. They did not believe me and charged me to restore the server. Three days later after working day and night to get the websites back up, the server starts running so slow it is impossible to finish things up. They blame it on my sites getting to many hits. I explain why that is not so, but they will not look into other possibilities even though I showed them how my old server was handling all those hits no problem.

Fortunately, I decided to make a video on relocation using the Kakini technique from Muhurta Chintamani. After making the video I realized that my name was giving more time and money to the name of the hosting site, which started with an L, then the hosting sites name was giving my name, which starts with an E.  Which means I would draw a deficit of time and money with them. I had been with them 3 years. First on a VPS server. Had problems all the time, but they were very helpful and I could call them and they would jump on things right away, so I stayed due to their great costumer support. Last December I upgraded to a more expensive and more powerful server with them. Had problems all the time, again, they were friendly so I stayed. 10 days ago I upgraded to a much more powerful server and all hell broke loose. I realized that since being on a web server is sort of like living in a particular place, that Kakini relocation may work. I had bad Kakinis with this web hosting company, so I searched out a web hosting company that I had good Kakinis with, moved there, and if the technique proves itself, it should be smooth sailing.

Looking back at my Kakinis with other hosting companies, the techniques has worked perfectly. First, way back in 1999 I was with Vaca.net. V sound is taking my time and money, not a good Kakini for me. Had lots of trouble with that company, eventually left and moved to arteryplanet.net. Amazing! Never had a problem, A, the first letter in arteryplanet, is not a bad Kakini for me, but neither is it good, it is even. So while the hosting was great for me, eventually I had to leave due to needing a Windows server which they did not offer. (Please note, since then arteryplanet.net has been sold and is considered one of the worst hosting sites around, so don’t go there!) I found windows hosting at bottomlinehostingcom.net quite affordable and so set up with them. My Kakinis with B sounding names is good, hosting was trouble free and solid with them. They went out of business a couple of years ago so I moved to Lunarpages.com, cool name if you are an astrologer and really affordable highly rated hosting, but a bad Kakini for me which I did not consider at the time. (While I had lots of tech problems with Lunarpages, I think I was a fluke due to bad Kakini and I would recommend Lunarpages to anyone who has good Kakinis with them especially because they are very affordable for a serious hosting company with great customer support.) Yesterday I moved to Serverpoint.com, S is a good Kakini for me, so I expect things to go smoothly with them, got things up and running in record time with no problems. Pricing was very good, in some respects better than Lunarpages.  

Check out the Kakini video under the Remedials menu, it is a great technique.

Today is Friday the 29th of April, the 12th tithi of the dark half of the month – the day I predicted in the Ashtamangalam Number video that I would get the videos running online – which has been an issue I have been struggling with for the past 4 weeks.

The problem was easy, obvious, and hidden by fate until today. How we missed it I have no idea, but Friday, the 12th Tithi of the waning moon was the day the Ashtamangalam number predicted my working out the problem and in 5 minutes this morning the problem was solved! Then I did some quick calculations and figured my current web server would run out of space pretty fast as I made videos, so I upgraded to a much more powerful server as well.

So now it is just a matter of my rendering 30 hours of video over the next week and uploading them to the site and we are ready to launch!

Astrology-videos.com is finally up and running, just have to get the videos up now… But getting the website up itself was quite a chore. I can’t tell you how much time Srishti and I spent trying different membership subscription softwares before we finally found one that worked. This has delayed the launch of this site by months and I have to apologize to all of you who have been anxiously awaiting some new material to study. Just as much I have to thank Srishti for her 12 hour days for weeks getting all this to work for me and going through the frustrations of dealing with all terrible membership software we tried, while I had it pretty easy just managing the kids and household, cleaning out the garage and basement and such. I think around mid May videos will be up and we will be ready to launch.
