AAP, Kejriwal And Jupiter Retrogression

Political predictions are most difficult because you never have any concrete birth data to apply astrological theories. So any such prediction based on the leader's birth chart or party's birth chart will usually fail .
It is like predicting Sensex . So , in stock market , we use Technical Analysis , which just studies the trends of Price and Volume and makes some predictions . Technical analysts say that their predictions are about 80% time true at least for short term scenario.
Jupiter & Saturn's retrogression phenomena can be similarly used as shown below in Aam Admi Party's Political Journey .
Jupiter's Retrogression Explained  
 Every year when Jupiter moves away about 4 Rashi signs  from Sun's sign , its retrogression starts. Astronomically speaking , the speed of Jupiter appears less than Earth's speed and so it appears moving backward , as observed from Earth. This negative speed reaches maximum in about 2 months from the retrogression start date and then this negative speed slowly reduces over further 2 months to zero. So, retrogression phenomenon lasts for 4 months every year.
After this 4 months period , Jupiter again achieves its fast and direct motion for next 8 months , within which it again achieves maximum forward or direct motion within 4 months.  
So extreme backward motion and extreme forward motion will have 6 months gap. 
This is true for Saturn also . 
AAP's Political Journey 
Aam Admi Party, led by Arvind Kejriwal decided to fight Delhi Assembly elections in 2013 . On 7th November 2013 , Jupiter became retrograde and this was to last for next 4 months.
Congress Party being at Centre and unpopular , the opposition was to benefit from this and retrogression would help both major opposition , BJP and AAP. 
The elections were held on 4th December 2013 and results declared on 7th December 2013. Opposition bagged 62 seats while Congress got 8 seats . BJP got 32 and AAP got 28 seats. 
In absence of extreme Jupiter retrogression , despite decimation of Congress, divided opposition could not make govt. on its own till end December 2013. But by the end of December 2013, AAP got the opportunity when Jupiter got into extreme retrogression at speed of -0.1350 degree per day , almost 2 months after 7th November 2013. 
So, the first week of January 2014 was the euphoria period for AAP, with all TV Channels and media full of praise for Kejriwal's actions, thoughts and character. This was the time when whole country became hopeful about emergence of a new honest party. The euphoria was so much that party planned for Loksabha election sweep in May 2014 . 
Buoyed by huge popular support in Delhi, on  14th February 2014 , Delhi CM Kejriwal resigned to win Loksabha elections.
But Jupiter retrogression was slowing and by 7th March 2014, Jupiter again started its direct journey and AAP started losing ground . He was labelled as absconder and irresponsible for resigning after 49 days. 
In another 4 months of Jupiter direct motion , when Jupiter had extreme direct motion rate of + 0.2220 degree per day , his effect was considerably reduced and whole country was singing Modi victory Songs and BJP bagged all 7 Delhi MP seats, while Kejriwal lost his own seat also from Varanasi .His party won only 4 seats from Punjab and none from metro cities. 
2015 Elections
After 2014 Loksabha elections, BJP became party in power and lost its opposition tag while Congress was totally eliminated , even as opposition. So, AAP became sole opposition party in 2015 elections of Delhi. 
After July 2014, Jupiter's direct motion started receding and it took another 4 months till 9th December 2014, when Jupiter again started its retrogression period after a year. Maharashtra, Haryana, Jharkhand elections were won by BJP just before Jupiter retrogression and J&K election results , held after retrogression start,  were not as per expectations of BJP .
BJP was sensing defeat in Delhi , so it kept on delaying decisions for elections in Delhi and finally it went for elections in February 2015 , when it had no other option. Please look below picture , how Jupiter was at extreme retrogression speed of -0.1329 degree per day  on the day of election of 7th February 2015 . 
BJP now being party in power and there being no opposition in Delhi except AAP , the extreme Jupiter retrogression gave  67 seat ( more than 62 in 2013) to AAP and 3 seats to BJP ruling in centre , less than 8 for Congress ruling in centre in 2013 elections.
 The Journey Ahead for AAP 
The peak of popularity having been achieved in first week of February 2015, the slide has begun after result declaration date of 10th February 2015. On 10th April 2015, Jupiter will again take direct motion . 
The internecine wars within AAP have begun within a month of oath taking. These will become more intense after 10th April 2015 and achieve peak, after 4 months, in the month of August 2015. During this period , AAP and its convenor will face brickbats and loss of popularity and party may be divided also. 
The Saturn in Libra during November 2011 to October 2014 was the reason for creation of a popular party and this time being over now , so we will have this party just like many other regional parties in country, with lots of infighting.  
The motion of largest planet of our solar system , Jupiter, can be used to get the glimpse of popularity of a party ,  price trends in equity, currency or commodity markets.

After Yoga Next is Jyotisha !

After Acceptance of  Yoga in West , Next is Jyotisha !
    Indian Yogis and spiritual saints had started visiting western countries around last decade of 19th Century and by middle of 20th century they had established their organisations in Europe and North America. Despite all this , Indian Yoga (योग) did not find popular acceptance till 1970 and therefore local scientist community also did not consider it worth researching . Till then, aerobics was considered better than Yoga in these countries . 
   It was only after Indian professionals started migrating to these countries after 1970, that ethnic Indian techniques started getting more prominence in western countries, because local population could now directly interact and  learn more about Indian way of life and understand merits of Indian living , cuisine , Yoga and such things.
   The Indians took with them age old formulae of Ayurveda , herbs ,spices,  Bollywood films , festival celebrations , Yoga and so many ethnic Indian things. Their white neighbours and colleagues got opportunity to see closely the Indian way of life and they got impressed and adopted many such things. 
So , over next 3 decades , white population learnt the benefits of Yoga , Indian community regularly called their English speaking spiritual Gurus for discourses on good living , in which local white population also participated . 
This way, Yoga started getting acceptance in western population. Once people start accepting something , politicians and scientist also adopt it and accordingly research starts in the direction of benefits. So, the same researchers who preferred aerobics over Yoga , now say that Yoga is far superior to aerobics. 
Who caused this change in stand of science ? The Indian Diaspora . And once the western countries accept something , our Secularist , Rationalists , Scientists , Educated class has no more reservations on it .
 So now in India also , Yoga is no problem for secularists and scientists because now it is validated in west and it is no longer a crap Hindu exercise . Now any Indian govt. has no reservation or bias in opening a Yoga institute or making  it a part of MBBS syllabus and so on. Now even World Yoga Day is there on 21st June every year.  
Has Yoga changed from what it was 30-40 years before ? No , we have changed ourselves and our mindset based upon change of Western countries' outlook.    
JYOTISHA is Next in Line 
If Yoga  was our conventional weapon , then Jyotish is more like a nuclear weapon and our next export to world is going to be JYOTISH and it will become popular in West in next  10-12 years just like Yoga.
 I would like to emphasize the word JYOTISH instead of Astrology as Astrology means  Western Astrology,  which can be compared to aerobic exercises and initially western scientists had dubbed the Yoga as aerobic exercise only but now they have conceded that it is  different and far superior than aerobics and has more benefits.
In the same way , Jyotish will replace the current Astrology in western countries in a decade or two and it will be called Jyotisha ( ज्योतिषा ) to distinguish it from other forms of astrology . I have several reasons to believe this . Like Yoga , the foremost factor in its acceptance will be large diaspora of Non Resident Indians in these countries , who have already carried Jyotish with them like Yoga , Indian cuisines , Bollywood song and dance , marriage celebrations , ethnic coutre and so on.
I already have some personal experiences told by my NRI friends , who consult me for astrology , how it is making white population curious about Indian Astrology or Jyotisha .In current age of  twitter , Facebook and Youtube , any knowledge will spread in shortest possible time,  if it has some truth in it without waiting for scientists' and local laws' validation , rather scientists will study and endorse it because people would be already practising it . 
The  Rising Awareness of Jyotish  in West

 Is it not enough ! Look further below what a British MP David Tredinnick is saying about Astrology ....
From Wiki Page on Tredinnick ....
Tredinnick is a supporter of astrology and its use in medical practice.
In November 2009, he spoke at a meeting organised by the Astrological Association of Great Britain, where he related his personal experience of astrology and illness, advocating that astrology be integrated into the National Health Service (NHS). In 2014 he told MPs: "I am absolutely convinced that those who look at the map of the sky for the day that they were born and receive some professional guidance will find out a lot about themselves and it will make their lives easier." 
In February 2015 Tredinnick wrote that astrology could be used to treat patients in the NHS and reduce over crowding.
It is not only that a British MP became a Bhakta of Indian astrology or Ayurveda , there are thousands of prominent Indians who seek and benefit from astrology and Ayurveda but do not have courage to admit this in public.

  Nivedita Joshi, daughter of Murli Manohar Joshi, was incapacitated for almost a decade because of slip disc. After a miraculous recovery under the living legend of yoga, B.K.S. Iyengar’s care, she has resumed not only her normal life, but also is so inspired that she is setting up an Iyengar yoga center in Delhi . Dr. Joshi had told in many interviews that many astrologers had predicted that she will be cured while doctors had predicted bedridden existence for her entire life. 

Indian sciences were not designed or invented for passing the " double Blind Tests of Modern Science , rather these are based on direct proof of benefits. So, whoever get benefited from these Indian sciences by their true practitioners , will swear by them , for his whole life. 

See , what an educated Indian fears to speak in public , A British MP is saying in Britain ....

David Tredinnick "However, I do believe that astrology and complementary medicine would help take the huge pressure off doctors.
Astrology is a useful diagnostic tool enabling us to see strengths and weaknesses via the birth chart.And, yes, I have helped fellow MPs. I do foresee that one day astrology will have a role to play in healthcare.
He added that opponents to astrology were "bullies", saying: "Astrology offers self-understanding to people.People who oppose what I say are usually bullies who have never studied astrology. They never look at it. They are absolutely dismissive. Astrology may not be capable of passing double-blind tests but it is based on thousands of years of observation. 
"Hippocrates said, 'A physician without a knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician" .  Astrology was until modern times part of the tradition of medicine. I think it is a great pity that so many scientists today are dismissive of right-side brain energy, such as intuition. 

It is not only Hippocrates  ( Allopaths swear  by him ! ) asked to use astrology in treatment but even before him, Ayurveda directed Vaidyas to use astrological inputs to understand the disease and accelerate the recovery of patients. The traditional Ayurveda considers Jyotisha knowledge essential, while our modern BAMS degree  syllabus has only passing reference to Jyotish. The syllabus of Jyotish includes medical astrology while Ayurveda includes Jyotish for correct diagnosis and duration of disease.     

Therefore , the day is not far when Jyotish will be accepted as JYOTISHA in place of hoax astrology of West and scientists will also validate it . Thereafter Indian secularists, rationalist , scientists will also gladly accept it , not as Jyotish but as JYOTISHA , the NRI backed , foreign returned , our own Jyotish , like Yoga and Ayurveda !   And it will happen because of more than 10 million population in western countries , which already practices it. We may also celebrate World Jyotisha Day in 2030 !
