Mohandas Gandhi Horoscope

Mohandas Gandhi

Gandhi’s principle of Simplicity was anti-capitalist. He encouraged his followers to stop buying western-style clothes and make their own. The spinning wheel on the Indian flag is a reminder of this socialist principle. This post looks at the astrology of assassination. I have looked at the transits to the Mohandas Gandhi Horoscope from the assassination and the conjunctions to natal planets explain his life very well.

Because Gandhi was 78 years old when he was assassinated, using precession correction becomes critical when looking at the transits. I always use this method for my astrology because I see the the fixed stars as the backdrop to the natal planets, not the zodiac signs.

Mohandas Gandhi Horoscope

It’s like imagining the whole chart moving forward in time with the stars. The fixed stars precess at about one degree every 72 years, so the precession correction value for Gandhi at the time of his death is 66′. You can see what a difference this makes to the orbs by adding the precession correction value to his natal horoscope. I am only listing the conjunctions here:

Solar eclipse conjunct Mars 06′, first quarter Moon conjunct DC 36′, North Node conjunct Pluto 53′, South Node conjunct Mars 08′, Saturn conjunct Moon 63′, Ascendant conjunct North Node 01′

What was triggered most of all was the T-square in his natal chart with Moon the focal point, Moon square Mars and Moon square Pluto. The Moon is public and the night, he was shot while having his nightly public walk. Mars rules firearms and shooting, and Pluto is the Lord of death. The first quarter Moon triggered the natal Descendant which rules open enemies, he was assassinated by a member of an Hindu nationalist group who openly opposed Gandhi’s policies toward Pakistan. The other conjunction by transit was the event Ascendant on natal North Node, the karmic path I guess which was always destined.

These conjunctions by transit highlighted all but one of the major fixed stars in the natal horoscope, which was Sun conjunct Porrima, named after the Roman Goddess of Prophesy. The most striking aspect by transit was natal Mars hit by the preceding solar eclipse and the South Lunar Node. These were all conjunct the fixed star Zubeneschamali, In good position, the star will arouse, above all things, spiritual and mental forces. Credited with bestowing an immortal name. With Mars: High ambitions, success through energy, influential position, forceful writer and speaker. With Mars opposite Pluto, “You may feel picked on” [Robert Hand, Planets in Youth, p.240.] Well that’s just the story of his life! It also shows how his energy effected the masses (Pluto).

Mohandas Gandhi HoroscopeGandhi’s natal Moon was on the fixed star Ras Elased Borealis “an appreciation for language and a power of expression”. The square to both Mars and Pluto means he would always have felt compelled to speak out on behalf of the people. His Descendant was on Al Risha which marks the knot which binds the two fishes of constellation Pisces, each heading in different directions. Interesting that he wanted to unify the people of India, but the partition of Pakistan came out of it all, and was the reason he was assassinated. The rising star at the time of the shooting was the same as on his natal North Node, Asellus Borealis “care and responsibility, with a charitable and fostering nature, but danger of violent death….patience, beneficence and courage, and makes its natives heroic and defiant leaders”.

The first Arabic Part of Assassination is Ascendant + 12th house cusp – Neptune. For Gandhi, this was 07ari02. For the date he died, precession correction makes this 08ari08. At 08lib08, exactly opposite when he was shot was the transiting Moon. In the assassination chart, this Arabic Part of Assassination was 00tau57, conjunct the Midheaven of 00tau44. These Arabic Parts involving house cusps only seem to show magic like this when using the Placidus house system.

Based on the fixed stars, the transits and the Arabic Parts, it seems it was fated that Gandhi would be assassinated, always going to happen and someone had to do it. Each person has a role to play in the scheme of things. There is no date of birth available for the assassin, Nathuram Godse, but if there was I’m sure the fixed stars and transits would help explain why he was destined to play this role in history. At 78 years of age Gandhi had a good innings and like in many assassinations, the message he came to give lives on stronger as a result.

“A man who was completely innocent, offered himself as a sacrifice for the good of others, including his enemies, and became the ransom of the world. It was a perfect act.” Mohandas Gandhi.

    On 15 August 1947, India became free from the foreign rule. Mahatma Gandhi was in Calcutta. He pitted his whole soul against this madness of communal hatred and tried to calm the angry passions on both sides. Lord Mountbatten hailed Gandhiji as One-man Boundary Force. He wrote : ” In the Punjab we have 55 thousand soldiers and large-scale rioting on our hands. In Bengal our forces consist of one man, and there is no rioting. As a serving officer, as well as an administrator, may I be allowed to pay my tribute to the One-man Boundary Force. ”

    Speaking at Prayer Meeting on 20 July 1947 , Gandhiji said : ” I cannot rejoice on August 15. I do not want to deceive you. But at the same time I shall not ask you not to rejoice.Unfortunately the kind of freedom we have got today contains also the seeds of future conflict between India and Pakistan. How can we therefore light the lamps? ”

    A day before on 14 August, speaking at Marwari Club in Calcutta, Gandhi said : ” Tomorrow we will be free from the slavery of British; but from mid-night India will be cut into two pieces.”

    15 August 1947, Gandhiji spent his day with prayers, fasting and spinning. He did not issue any formal message nor did he attend the celebrations in Delhi. Talking to the group of students, Gandhiji said : ” I am not lifted off my feet by these demonstration of joy. “
