Did Arvind Kejriwal have it in his stars to be the Chief Minister of Delhi again? An Analysis of his Horoscope.

Arvind Kejriwal - the convener of the Aam Aadmi Party has recorded a thumping victory in the recently conducted Assembly Elections of Delhi. Arvind Kejriwal first shot to fame as the key person behind the formulation & implementation of RTI (Right to Information) act in India. He however came in limelight as a part of Social Activist Anna Hazare’s team members launching a movement for Lokpal Bill. He came in limelight for reasons besides his Social Activism when he had chosen to take the route of Politics in India. Two years back he formed ‘Aam Aadmi Party’ – a political outfit and contested Delhi State Assembly Elections as a Chief Ministerial candidate. And after being elected as the Chief Minister of Delhi, he resigned from the post after 49 days of doing some key reforms and work. His apology to the Delhi electorate for such a pre mature resigning went down well with Delhi again, which elected his party again to power and him as the Chief Minister of Delhi for the second time. 

Let us analyze his Horoscope to understand how his stars favored him rise to the power yet again, after almost completely written off given the very poor showing of his party in the Lok Sabha Elections of 2014. Let us try to decode his horoscope.

The horoscope of Arvind Kejriwal below has been prepared based on the data available in the public domain.

Date of Birth: Friday, August 16, 1968
Time of Birth: 23:46:00
Place of Birth: Hissar

Let us first analyze the horoscope and the auspicious yogas (combinations) along with the Dasha and Transit system.

The Ascendant

It is Taurus Lagna with the exalted MOON posited there. The Lagna lord VENUS which is the also the lord of 6th house of competitions and mental stability is well placed in a square – the 4th house.
The Lagna as well as MOON Rashi (sign) of Mr. Arvind Kejriwal are seen – Vrishab (Taurus).
There is no aspect of the malefic planet on the 1st house.


Such a person would be slim, lean, and adept in some art such as music or painting or acting.
He is likely to be a home loving, happy, virtuous person blessed with Matra Sukha (happiness on account of mother).

This combination of planets makes him a person who would be able, self made. He will earn name, fame by self exertion.

Arvind Kejriwal is a person who is ambitious and would apply his “heart” as well as “head” in a persistent and steadfast manner till he achieves his goals. To help him achieve his goals, he is blessed by nature with courage, a competitive spirit, determination and some vindictive nature. The Lagna being a fixed and earthy sign, with exalted MOON in it, multiplies these qualities manifold. The public has already seen these qualities since his appearances on the national scenario when he joined Anna Hazare’s movement for Lokpal Bill.

The Nakshatra

Arvind Kejriwal is born in Kritika Nakshatra – 4th pada. It is the Nakshatra of SUN. In his natal horoscope, SUN the lord of 4th house.
Kritika literally means “the one who cuts.” Mr. Kejriwal does seem to display this quality in his approach towards his opponents. Also in general, his basic stand is against corruption and the corrupt. When loosely translated it can also mean the ability to be critical – which he has and has it in abundance.

Such a person has a very penetrative observation with a deep desire to explore what is hidden beneath the surface. Those born under this constellation are usually believers of “tit for tat” approach and are not easily forgiving.
Kritika is a restless Nakshatra, ever indulging in activity – be it in the form of leadership, education, or fight. The 4th pada of Kritika Nakshatra falls in Pisces Navamasha which is ruled by JUPITER. Hence this explains his leadership qualities and the group work (leader of Aam Aadmi Party - AAP).

SUN is the rural of the Nakshatra, which gives the native a lot of energy and independence. Just like SUN’s rays such persons have direct approach.

If you have been following Arvind Kejriwal in media, you would confirm the presence of such traits in him.

3rd House

The 3rd house is the indicator of courage and the ability to meet challenges. Kejriwal has MARS in his 3rd house – the best possible planet to support this trait. In addition, the lord of 3rd house is MOON which is exalted and well placed in the Lagna - as discussed in the previous lines. This combination is very good for courage, will power, and mind stability. The debilitated MARS, of course, restricts the native which otherwise could have made him a ruthlessness person.

5th House

The presence of KETU in the 5th house makes him a sharp but critical thinker. At the same time, he would be constantly worrying. This could be mentally torturous if not controlled or may give birth to scheming mind.

Also this may give him digestive problem from time to time.

6th House

This is a house of employment, competition, health, disease etc. VENUS is the lord of this house, besides being the Lagna lord. Two malefic planets MARS and SATURN aspect this house. The closer study of the role of these two planets in the birth chart of Kejriwal will indicate that he will have a career which will be involved in dealing with masses and also fighting with the competitors. In order to be successful, he will have to fight and get victory. Which stands vindicated after such a resounding victory in Elections for his party.

10th House

This is the house of career, profession, name, and fame. It would be interesting to thoroughly analyze various hidden messages coming from this house. Firstly, SATURN is the lord of this house. Secondly, SATURN is debilitated and is in the 12th house. This connects him with masses. This is understood by the present state of affairs where he is liked by wider strata of society now.
Also he had to face defeat or subjugation many a times when he resigned and then lost out to Narendra Modi in Varanasi constituency in 2014 Lok Sabha Election.

Thirdly, the 10th house of Kejriwal is being aspected by four planets – SUN, MERCURY, VENUS and JUPITER. This confirms his present interest and role in politics and affairs of the country. Such a combination of planets makes the person very skillful, self made but not very happy in his place. He is under constant pressure or threats from others which will keep him worried.

The current Dasha and the Transit of Planets

Arwind Kejriwal is currently running the Maha Dasha of JUPITER since 17th August 2004 and the sub dasha of VENUS since 29th June 2013. Although the Dasha of JUPITER is likely to give him many challenges and surprises but it will also make him professionally ambitious and a politically active leader. His decision to fight election and cleanup the corruption in the society is perhaps inspired by the sub dasha of VENUS which is his Lagna lord as well as the lord of 6th house. Both the planets are placed in the 4th house and are aspecting his 10th house of profession.

It is quite certain that at least during the dasha of JUPITER (up to 17th August 2020); Kejriwal will remain politically active and also ambitious and may rise to high level.

Currently, there are 4 planets moving over his 6th house including the exalted SATURN. Also the transit JUPITER from his 2nd house is aspecting the 6th house, 8th house, and 10th house.
