The Bachchans were furious at a report in the “Mumbai Mirror” (a Times Group publication) regarding reports of the offspring and certain illnesses of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The family demanded an immediate apology from the editors and even threatened to sue them for damages. The family also boycotted the “Filmfare awards” feature presented annually by the same group.
The Bachchans are a family of many famous people. We have written about Bachchans and analyzed the astrological aspects related to them from time to time. Our articles on this subject include “Trying Times for Amitabh Bachchan-Horoscope Analysis”, “Year Ahead for Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-Horoscope Analysis”, “The Mysterious Rahu and Shooting of Ravana” etc.
Since the current episode is linked to the question of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s descent, it will be relevant to analyze his horoscope from the perspective of the descent which is at the origin of the current controversy. Discussion of the astrological outlook follows.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was born on November 1, 1973 at the ascension of the Virgin Lagna (Ascendant). The sun sign according to the Vedic system is Libra. According to the Western system, it is Scorpio. The sign of the Moon is Sagittarius. The birth “Nakshatra” is “Purva Ashadha 2nd pada”.
The locations of the planets in the horoscope are as follows: –
The ascendant (Lagna) is the Virgin. There is no planet in the lagna.
The second house weakened Sun.
The third house has retrograde Mercury.
The fourth house has Venus, the Moon and Rahu.
The fifth house weakened Jupiter.
The eighth house has retrograde Mars.
The tenth house has retrograde Saturn and Ketu.
The relevant house for the offspring is the 5th house. The planets placed in the 5th house and the planets influencing the 5th house and the 5th lord are important considerations. The 9th house and its lord are also important for considering offspring prospects.
In Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s horoscope, the 5th Lord Saturn is found to be retrograde and is distressed to be placed in the “Rahu / Ketu” axis. Weakened Jupiter is placed in the 5th house. The 9th Lord Venus is also afflicted by being placed in the “Rahu / Ketu” axis. Here it should be mentioned that 3 planets i.e. Mercury, Saturn and Mars are retrograde.
“Brihat Parashara Hora Shastra” (a treatise on Vedic Astrology) speaks of delay in childbirth due to curses of spiritual people from acts of past lives. See verses 71-78 (chapter 85). The verses indicate that childbirth can be delayed if such curses from past lives are continued unattended. The set of combinations that speak of such a curse in his horoscope are “Rahu” placed in the sign of Jupiter (Sagittarius in his case), the affliction of the 5th lord, the affliction of the 9th lord and the weakened Jupiter placed in the 5th house. Therefore, the afflictions in the horoscope caused by the curse are the main cause of delay in childbirth. The only course available to her is to seek the grace of God and the “Sadguru” (Ascending Masters) to resolve karmic issues from past lives.
The silver lining in the horoscope is the placement of its own sign Mars in the 5th house of the Moon. However, Mars also happens to be retrograde and receives the aspect of the weakened Sun. Mars must also be strengthened. Currently she is leading the “Rahu / Jupiter” operational “dasa” which started on her from August 2009 and will continue until January 2012. Jupiter is weakened in her horoscope but is gaining strength in the “Navamsha” “. In “Navamsha”, Jupiter is placed in the sign of Aries. The lord of Aries is Mars. If she is able to take corrective action for Mars and Jupiter, she will be able to conceive and be able to have a healthy child. He is advised to worship “Samarth Sadguru Shri Sai Nath of Shirdi” to strengthen Jupiter and “Lord Hanuman” to strengthen Mars.
