Muthuvel Karunanidhi is an Indian politician who has served as Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu on five separate occasions. He is the head of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, a Dravidian political party in the state of Tamil Nadu.

Off late he has not been keeping good health. While I am writing this article half way through, one of my friend sent me a whatsapp, informing that he is in the hospital and serious. See the coincidence. For the past one week, I was searching for his birth data and unable to find out. However, while analysing the chart of Late Jayalalitha, I had analysed the TN state chart and found that the 10th house (government) were afflicted. Even in my article on “Demonetisation”, I had clearly written that some heads of the country/state will pass away. It happened with Late Jayalalitha as you would have witnessed. Then I searched through my astrology library for the data of M. Karunanidhi. Then I found one book titled “ 765 notable horoscopes” wherein many such high profile people horoscopes are given. I had to do some rectification on the chart depending upon the day when he was hospitalised on 14th December, 2016. The birth time was extended by another 15 minutes. This rectification was done based on the “western method of secondary progressions”. However, this article based on purely, vedic astrology, niryana system. I am now giving below the horoscope of M. Karunanidhi below;



The Asc/Lagna rising is Cancer 13 degrees 15. The lagna lord is in the 11th house a “Bhadaka” sthana and combust being close to Sun. The dasa in operation is of Venus, the 7th dasa, which is always a troublesome dasa. For people who have “Poorna aayu”, the 7th dasa is usually the last dasa. This Venus is the lord of 11th (the bhadaka). Venus is placed in the 12th house of “Death”. The natal Venus, the dasa lord is currently afflicted by transit Ketu from the 8th house. From January 2017 end Venus will be afflicted by transit Saturn and Mars too. So dasa lord Venus is under heavy affliction.

The anatara is of Rahu (in Leo at 03 degrees 02) which is in the 2nd house a “Maraka” sthana. Moreover, the transit Rahu is also now currently transiting over natal Rahu and it is at Leo 12 degrees 07. It is nearing to the exact position of natal Rahu around in the month of May, 2017. But the effect of transit Rahu will begin when it comes closer to around 10 degrees. Now the natal Rahu is afflicted by transit Mars from the 8th house in Aquarius. So the natal Rahu in 2nd house a Maraka is also under heavy affliction.

The prati-antara is of Moon, the lagna lord which is the 11th house and it is in the nakshatra of Mars, which is in the 7th house a Maraka sthana again. According to Krishnamurti Paddhati, this Moon is in the sub of Venus, which is the lord of 11th a Bhadaka. The Moon is in the critical degree called “Mrityu Bahga”.

In the Navamsa above, the dasa lord Venus is in the 8th house, antara is in the 7th house a maraca, and Moon is in the 11th house a bhadaka.

The period of Venus/Rahu/Moon will be till first week of March, 2017 and thereafter, the Venus/Rahu/Mars will be till first week of May, 2017.


Based on the above analysis, the period up to March, 2017/May 2017 is very critical. “You can expect the un-expected” is what I can say.

Long live……Shri. M. Karunanidhi.

    You failed miserably in your predictions....

      Out of many, I humbly say I have failed. But how many astrologers stick their neck out well in advance?

    Please learn to appreciate the effort. If you say someone is wrong, then you should publish why it's wrong. Sharing my humble suggestion.
