He is the head of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, a Dravidian political party in the state of Tamil Nadu.
Mr.M.Karunanidhi was born on June 3rd, 1924 at 10:40AM near Thiukkuvalai, Nagapattinam District, India. Karunanidhi’s horoscope is peculiar in nature. It has all the important Raj Yogas in his chart. And more importantly the mahadasha of planets which gives the most favorable result came at right age.
Karunanidhi is Cancer ascendant and ascendant lord Moon exalted in Taurus the eleventh house. This is the most important aspect of this horoscope. In any horoscope, the strength of ascendant lord is very important. An exalted ascendant lord would give all the strength required to face challenges in life. He would succeed in all the challenges he faces.
Karunanidhi is a well known orator. He is known for his peculiar speech. The second lord Sun is placed in eleventh house along with ascendant lord Moon. In eleventh house any planet would be doing favorable results. Second house is the house of wealth. Karunanidhi entered in cine filed at young age and grew as a dialogue writer. His dialogues were very famous in that period. But the second house is occupied by Rahu. This is not a favorable placement. But luckily this made his voice unique and peculiar which got warmful welcome from the public.
Third house and twelfth lord Mercury is placed in the tenth house. This is the house of profession. His main profession was cinema movie dialogue writer and script writer. Mercury is the planet for communication. When Mercury is placed in tenth house native would be good at script writing. The third house is the house of communication. Third lord in tenth house confirms the victory as a script writer.
The fourth lord and eleventh lord Venus has occupied twelfth house Gemini. One must remember that twelfth house is not a hidden house or bad house for Venus. Venus performs well with its karaka. The most important karaka of Venus is entertainment, art, movies etc. there is no doubt that Karunanidhi shined well in cinema industry.
Fourth house is occupied by Saturn, the seventh and eighth lord. But Saturn is exalted here, causing one of the Maha Purusha Yogas ‘Sasa Yoga’. This yoga made his hard working and very near to the working class people. He won the public heart and tremendous success in elections.
The fifth and tenth lord Mars, being a yoga karaka for this chart is exalted in seventh house. This placement caused another Maha Purusha Yoga called ‘Ruchaka Yoga’. This yoga gives power in politics. This is the main planet for the success of Karunanidhi in politics. But a natural malefic planet in seventh house is not considered as good placement with respect to married life. This would cause separation from spouse. Karunanidhi lost his wife at very young age. But since seventh lord is exalted, he married twice after that.
Fifth house is occupied by another benefic planet and ninth lord Jupiter. But Jupiter is retrograded here. Jupiter is the planet for spirituality and religious beliefs. Since Jupiter is retrograded it made him an atheist. If Jupiter is in fifth house, native wouldn’t have male heirs. But since Jupiter is retrograded and fifth lord Mars is exalted he has more number of male children.
Karunanidhi was born in Margasheersha star constellation and ran Mars mahadasha till his 5 years and 6months. The yoga karaka Mars dasha at very young age is not considered good. Because it cannot give favorable results at infant age. An yoga karaka planet’s mahadasha should come at the middle age. But other placements of planets giving him more favorable results.
After Mars dasha Rahu mahadasha came and lasted till his 23 years. Since Rahu is in enemy house Leo, he was in poverty. He had to discontinue his education at very young age. But Leo is the sign owned by Sun. So, Rahu will behave like Sun. Sun is the karaka for politics. So, Rahu mahadahsa gave him introduction to some politics leaders. He was inspired by Justice party orator Alagirisamy. Then he was introduced to C.N.Annadurai, founder of DMK party. So, Rahu mahadahsa gave him a good start for his long term career, politics at that age.
Next came Guru mahadasha. Jupiter is another benefic planet for Cancer ascendants. He ran Jupiter mahadasha till his 39 years, i.e till 1963. In this period he grew very fast in his political career. He became as second level leader in his political party, DMK. This is the period when DMK party was getting people support slowly. Jupiter dasha made him VIP in his own party. He was known for his peculiar speech in Tamil.
From 1963 to 1982 he was having Shani mahadasha. Saturn is enemy planet for his ascendant. But it is exalted and retrograded in his chart. An exalted enemy planet especially a natural malefic won’t be giving favorable results. But since it is retrograded it had to give favorable results. In Saturn mahadahsa and Mercury antra dahsa (10th Feb 1969) he became Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu. But since Saturn is the lord of eighth house he had to face sudden changes in his political life and lost power in 1977.
Budha mahadasha started in 1982. In 1989 to 1991 he was having Sun and Moon antrashasha sub periods in Budha mahadasha. He got his power back in this period. Note that Sun and Moon forming ‘Amavasya Yoga’ and Moon is exalted in eleventh house. But it did not last for full regime period. Because the eleventh house is pathaka sthana for this ascendant.
He got his power back in 1996, when he was running Budha mahadasha and Jupiter antradasha. This time he could have full regime period of 5 years. In 1999 end Ketu dahsa started. He lost is position to his political enemies. Ketu dasha was very bad for him. He was arrested at a midnight of June 2001. He had to face many political challenges in this period. Ketu dasha generally doesn’t give good results. It will give good teachings of life.
In 2006 Shukra mahadasha started. He won the 2006 elections and became CM of Tamilnadu again. But since Venus is pathakathipathi and placed in twelfth house he could get only few seats and a minority government. In 2011 elections he again lost his government.
Though there could be ups and downs in his political career, he did not loose any of the elections as MLA. He won all the state assembly elections and remining as MLA from 1967. This is because of the strong placement of planets in his horoscope. He is 92 years now and still he is in active politics. May god bless him for healthy life.
