Do General Elections (Lok Sabha) Dates Favour BJP Win in 2019 ?

I had discussed the prospects of BJP win in Loksabha elections in this post . It was based on foundation day horoscope of Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) .

However , every prediction involves dasha plus transit effect of planets as on date of event . For this , we need to know the dates of elections and declaration of results. Indian General elections are spread over about 2 months and many planetary positions change and accordingly the mood of people and voting patterns keep on changing . 

Dates of Lok Sabha Elections 2019

Election Commission of India had announced poll schedule on 10th March 2019 , as given below and it consists of 7 phases of elections from April 11 to 19th May 2019 and results would be declared on 23rd May 2019 .

Position of Major Planets On Election Dates 

Date Major Planets Position Change in Sign / Direction of Major Planets
11 AprilSun in Pisces ,Mars in Taurus, Retrograde Jupiter in Sagittarius, Saturn in Sagittarius , Rahu -Ketu in Gemini-Sagittarius Jupiter Becomes Retrograde on 10th April .
18 AprilSun Goes to Aries , Rest UnchangedSun enters Aries on 14 April . Sun under Jupiter Aspect.
23 April Jupiter Goes Back to Scorpio , Rest UnchangedJupiter re-enters Scorpio on 23 April. Sun loses Jupiter Aspect.
29 AprilNo Change No Change
6 May Saturn Retrograde , Mars just going to enter into GeminiSaturn becomes retrograde on 30 April , Mars into Gemini on 7 May .

12 May

19  May

Mars into Gemini , Rest Unchanged

Sun into Taurus , Rest Unchanged

Mars in Gemini on 7 May

Sun into Taurus on 15 Mayand it comes again under Jupiter aspect.


One can see that there are many important changes in planetary positions during 11 April to 19 May and when results are declared on 23rd May , Sun would have changed 2 signs , Mars one sign and Jupiter & Saturn both would have become retrograde .

This shows us that whatever mood of people is being observed in March end , would undergo many changes and each election phase may have a different tone and these elections can be a roller coaster like ride where Congress and BJP may be appearing favourite in some phases .

We particularly need to focus on retrogression of Saturn and Jupiter for any reversal in popular mood and for that we need to focus on 11th April and 30th April . Mars sign change on 7 May is important as it will form Mars-Saturn opposition along Rahu-Ketu axis so , it may cause some violent incidences also in last phases .That includes natural disasters also as Ketu indicates natural calamities also .

Election Result Day Transit

BJP has a verified horoscope while we are not certain of main opposition Congress’s Horoscope . BJP horoscope has Moon in Scorpio , so we can check planet position from Scorpio as ascendant on 23 May 2019 at evening time by which time results would have been declared and picture would have been clear .

and we can compare it with planet position on evening of 16 May 2014 when BJP got absolute majority :

We can see in second chart , that ascendant lord Mars is well placed in 11th house of gains . Moon is 9th house lord and in own natal sign which favoured BJP and mood of BJP was very upbeat on evening of 16th May 2014 . If we assume Saturn for opposition , it was eclipsed in 12th house .

When we compare this to 23rd May Chart , Mars is in mysterious 8th House with shadow planet Rahu eclipsing Mars . Moon is in 3rd house which is neutral . Saturn is with Ketu so opposition may not be gaining again . The plus point this time is Jupiter presence in Ascendant as lord of 5th house and second house . That shows hope for ruling party but it is certainly not as good as it was on 16th May 2014 . 

Disclaimer : 

  1.  It is an academic exercise to see effect of transit of planets on election results and it is in no way a support for any political party .
  2. Any change in election or result day will make the whole analysis redundant .
  3. Because of Election Commission guidelines , clear predictions are not to be made till 19th May 2019 .

    Sir as you said in the last sentence there could be hope for ruling party but it may not be that good as it was in 2014, but in actual case we all know how comfortably the ruling party came back to power with thumping majority. So does this mean that astrologically it is difficult to predict exact mandate?

  2. It is said that this election is very important for our country .It will decide India’s Future.Can you Tell how this election affect India Astrologically..

  3. i think result clarity may not come by 23rd evening as 50# counting is to be done. so it may go to 24th!!! so what change you expect

  4. Sir, may you please publish an article while considering Gemini as the ascendant of BJP and its effects since its formation in 1980s.
    Regards Amit.
