planetary combination for success in politics

Politician and their Politics are the two things that hit headlines every day and it is quite obvious also. The whole system works according to politicians and they have the authority to make rules that affect us directly.

A politician is someone who is elected by people via elections in a democracy.


A person who is professionally involved in politics, especially as a holder of an elected office.

Gone are those days when Kings used to rule over a country or region based on their victory. Now we live in a democracy and we get to choose our Kings aka Politician.

Since Politician holds supreme authority in any society there must be some special planetary alignments/combinations in their Horoscope.

But the question is what are these astrology combination which makes one a Politician?

If you read astrology classics like B.P.H.S or Phaladeepika, sages have mentioned many Rajyoga which bring power and authority to the native when present in a Horoscope.

If you read astrology classics like B.P.H.S or Phaladeepika, sages have mentioned many Rajyoga which bring power and authority to the native when present in a Horoscope.

But Rajyoga is present in the horoscope of all walks of life, I mean Rajyoga is present in horoscope or Sportsmen, businessmen and even actors also have Rajyoga in their horoscopes but no way we can call them a politician.

This brings us to the very basic point of Career astrology which is related to the 10th house.

Here you need to identify whether the native has such a 10th house which enables him to serve people and thus a nation because this is what politicians do, they serve people in general and are answerable to them.

As said by Abraham Lincoln:

“Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth”

A Politician needs to devote his full life to the betterment of society.

If you dissect the above paragraphs you will notice the importance of the following planets:

1. Saturn: Saturn rules over masses and administration which is the main job of a politician and it should be strong in the horoscope then only one can be a successful politician.

The placement of Saturn in the ascendant, 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 11th house is highly favorable for a career in politics.

2. Sun: Planet Sun is a Royal planet and is considered the king in the planetary cabinet. Sun also represents affairs related to Government which means it should be strong in Horoscope for a good political career.

The placement of the Sun in the ascendant, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, 10th, and 11th house is supportive of getting a big break as a Politician.

3. Moon: Like the planet Sun, the Moon is also a Royal planet and a strong Moon is helpful for a politician because the Moon is karaka of mind and a Politician who makes decisions that affect millions should ideally have a good auspicious Moon. This means a strong and balanced Moon brings a good decision ability and keeps emotions in check.

The placement of Moon in 4th, 5th, 9th, and 11th can be considered as good for growth in political career. A highly afflicted Moon can make one a ruthless leader who won’t work for the betterment of society.

4. Jupiter: Strong Jupiter is very essential for a politician because it makes one un-corruptible, it is an important quality that a politician should have.

The association of the ascendant lord or Moon with Jupiter leads to good decisions that work in favor of society.

5. Rahu: The role of planet Rahu is limited here unless placed in the 3rd, 6th, or 10th house. Rahu brings deception in personality which is a common trait of a Politician. Also, a strong Rahu in the horoscope of a Prime minister or President allows him to deal with foreign countries effectively which is very important in the current political scenario.

Apart from the role of the above-mentioned planets following houses also play a vital role in the career of Politicians:

1. Ascendant: it rules over overall personality and a strong ascendant makes one a crowd puller and charismatic which is very essential for a politician. Strong and unafflicted ascendant makes a horoscope very strong and Rajyoga present in them becomes more conducive and efficient which is essential for getting a good position i.e Prime Minister, President or Cabinet Minister.

2. 3rd house: the third house in astrology represents initiative and courage and both are very important to run down your enemies which helps to win an election. A strong and benefic third house also leads to bold decisions as a Politician which can become a milestone.

3.4th house: in a Horoscope 4th house is considered as the throne and an auspicious 4th house leads the path to a high political position. Ideally, the 4th house should be aspected by benefic and its lord should be well placed in a Horoscope.

4.6th house: this is the most important house that needs to be discussed because as per astrology 6th house in a Horoscope deals with our enemies.

You all know that a Politician needs to fight and win an election which in turn provides them a position in government so that they can take care and manage the affairs related to their duties. Without a strong 6th house there won’t be much progress as a Politician because one won’t be able to go past their competitors.

5. 7th house: this is the most underrated house and here in the case of politicians 7th house is very important because the 7th house shows masses in general and a Politician always needs support from the masses. A well-connected and auspicious 7th house leads to a better connection with people which works in their favor and is very helpful to win elections.

6.11th house: it is a very enigmatic house and at the same time very important for success in politics because 11th house rules over achievements in life. A politician who deals on a very important and large scale needs to have a strong and auspicious 11th house otherwise he won’t have a legacy and despite relevant Rajyoga success will not be there.

So far we have seen essential planets and houses for a career in politics but how much success or authority one will gain as a politician will depend upon on Rajyoga present in the horoscope, without them, one can not progress to a high level like a mayor, cabinet minister, chief minister or prime minister, etc.

If you follow B.P.H.S. you will find many Rajyoga that are capable of making someone a king or equivalent to a king.

Let’s see what are the best Rajyoga which can make one a highly successful politician:

1. Gaja Kesari Yoga: This yoga is very important and from time to time you see it is mentioned in many places. It is of high value because it makes one very noble and charitable which is the topmost requirement in a Politician.

Here Moon and Jupiter should be Kendra to each other and Jupiter with its strong benefic nature makes Moon(mind) pure and un-corruptible. Same time yoga gives one worldwide recognition or fame and enables one to enjoy a good status in society.

2. Dharma Karma Adhipati Yoga: This is also a combination that gives success on a grand scale and is most important for a Politician. Here the connection between the strongest Trine i.e. 9th and the strongest Kendra i.e. 10th house makes the horoscope very strong.

3. Srinath Yoga: this yoga is considered as very auspicious in astrology and can form for Sagittarius ascendant only. Dr. Manmohan Sign who was Prime Minister of India for two consecutive terms has this yoga in his Horoscope.

4. Veepret Rajyoga: This yoga allows one to take advantage of others weak points which is very vital for success as a politician especially during elections where results decide the fate of someone’s political career.

5. Sasa Yoga: Saturn has an important say in making a politician because it rules over the administration and masses. A strong unafflicted Sasa Yoga is very supportive of a politician. It also provides a natural ability for administration.

6. Vishnu Yoga: It is a strong raja yoga where the 9th and 10th house lords are involved and allow one to gain success in any field including politics.

7. Planetary association between 5th and 10th house lord: This is also a yoga that can push a political career very high. 5th house is the house of honors and position and when connected with the 10th house can open the gateway to success.

8.Neecha Bhanga Rajyoga: it makes one suffer in the beginning which inspires them to help others. Also, it makes a horoscope strong which is very essential for success in politics.

Now after going through all these rules, we need to discuss some horoscopes where we can see the application of these planetary combinations that make one a Politician.

Also, you can read shubha yoga in astrology which gives power and authority.

1. Abraham Lincoln: the 16th president of the USA have the combined aspect of Sun & Saturn over the 10th house which shows service to the public at a great capacity. Same time 11th lord Mercury’s aspect over the 10th house magnified this to a great level. All this is happening at the 4th house which represents the “throne” in astrology. Jupiter in their sign in 5th house with 7th lord Venus is a great raja which gave him a long-lasting legacy.

Saturn which is karaka of masses and administration is also aspecting his 10th house.

Out of all examples, horoscopes of Politicians, horoscopes no. 6 and 7 belong to Dictators, technically they are also politicians because they were running a government but the way they ruled their country cannot be termed as Democratic and their ideology should be not followed by budding Politicians.

Conclusion: Importance of Saturn, 11th house and ascendant

As you can see from example horoscopes Saturn is connected to the 10th house in most of them and at the beginning itself I mentioned this point to you. Saturn is the lawmaker and gives perseverance which is very essential to success as a Politician. Whereas strong ascendant and the 11th house allows favor from the masses and give superior support from followers which is very crucial for attaining a powerful position in Politics.
