Mahatma Gandhi 151st Birth Anniversary 2020: Every year on 2 October, Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated to mark the birth anniversary of the most prominent leader of Indian Independence struggle.

Gandhi was considered as the Mahatma (“Great Soul”) in the eyes of millions of his fellow Indians. He was fondly known as ‘Bapu’. “The woes of the Mahatmas,” he stated, “are known only to the Mahatmas.” His acclaim spread worldwide during his lifetime and only expanded after his death. The name Mahatma Gandhi is presently one of the most universally recognized on earth.

On 15 June 2007, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution, which declared that 2 October will be celebrated as the International Day of Non-Violence, in the memory of the Greatest Indian ever.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and the Beauty of Strong Planets in his Birth Chart “An Amazing Astrological Portrait!”

The Astrological Outline of the ‘Mahatma’

  • Gandhi Ji was born with Ascendant Libra, and the Lord of Ascendant Venus was placed in its own sign with Mercury and Mars in his Birth Chart.
  • The combination of Venus, Mercury and Mars blessed him with great focus and eloquent determination.
  • Venus is situated in his own house and is in the Birth Lagna, which forms the great Panch-Mahapurusha Yoga – Malavya Yoga. This Yoga blessed him with great zeal, self-confidence and the potential to connect well with the fellow Indians.
  • The placement of Mars in the ascendant helped him build a great fighting spirit. This planetary placement made him a freedom fighter and an ardent opponent to the brutal British rulers.
  • The placement of Mercury in the ascendant rewarded him with a great reputation, integrity, astute speech, intelligence, and modesty.
  • Gandhiji was very soft-spoken and down to earth yet very convincing and firm is his approach. Venus in the ascendant instilled these qualities in him. Moreover, Gandhiji loved talking and was very impressive in his speech.
  • Venus and Mercury in the ascendant made him positive and confident. This particular combination gave him enormous feedback and mass appeal.
  • Saturn is posited in his second house. This is one of the reasons he was deprived of riches, luxury, enjoyment, and family life.
  • Sun in the Twelfth House made him very cooperative and sympathetic. He was a philosophical man who always maintained harmonious relations with the fellow Indians.
  • Moon is situated in his own house and the Tenth House. This helped him win millions of hearts.
  • Jupiter in the Seventh House gave him a philosophical attitude, made him kind-hearted and made him inclined towards spiritualism.
  • Jupiter, Venus, Mercury and Mars are in Kendra Houses, where Jupiter and Mercury are forming a benefic combination. This factor adds a lot of power to Gandhi Ji’s Horoscope and made him the ‘Father Of The Nation”.

Planetary Picture on the day of his unfortunate death

On 31 January 1948, Gandhiji was assassinated by Nathu Ram Godse. The planetary placements and combinations in his chart clarify the reasons behind the tragic, brutal, and shocking demise of the Greatest Indian Ever.


Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, a lawyer by profession, studied law in England and when came to his native land he transformed into a ‘Mahatma’. He won the hearts and minds of people and with his magnetic personality, he could attract masses to follow the pious and sacred path of non-violence and truth.

He became ‘Bapu’ for the entire nation and later came to be known as the ‘Father of Nation’. These transformations do not occur unless the required promise is there in the horoscope. Gandhiji was blessed with a very strong chart and the same was reflected in his personality and actions. Though he had to leave us consequent to an unfortunate and tragic death, his teachings of non-violence are still fresh in our hearts and minds, and we must strive to follow the path shown by him.
