Asif Ali Zardari, born on 21st July 1956, is the likely President-elect of Pakistan in the elections set on September 6th. For a man who spent 11 and a half years in prison on corruption charges and popularly known as Mr. 10 percent one time, this will be a big change.
His horoscope is not publicly available. But looking at the midday chart on his birth date, we have tried fixing his horoscope ascendant from known events in his public life and also from horoscopes of Benazir Bhutto and his son Bilawal. We believe he is Virgo (Kanya) ascendant with Saturn-Rahu conjunction in 3rd house which perhaps led him to prison during Rahu Mahadasha. He runs Jupiter Mahadasha now since possibly beginning of 2007. This has of course brought a elevation in his stature as a national leader.
An interesting fact emerges when we analyze the planetary position in the sky at the time of assasination of his wife, Benazir Bhutto. She was assassinated at 18 hours 16 min. at Rawalpindi (Pakistan) on 27th December 2007. It was Gemini (Mithuna) ascendant as per Vedic sidereal astrology with mars in the ascendant indicative of violent ending for her. But in the seventh house, Jupiter, Sun and Mercury were there. Jupiter as seventh lord promised a great rise in the fortunes of her husband. More so as Transit Jupiter at the time was in trine with Mr. Zardari’s natal Jupiter and Mahadasha lord.This positive indication for Mr. Zardari’s political rise from the horary horoscope of the assassination moment are about to be fulfilled in the Presidential election of Pakistan.
A note of concern however, as Jupiter antaradasha in Jupiter in Mahadasha is only 25.6 months long and will be over within a maximum of a year or so time period. Arrival of subsequent Saturn antardasha is to be problematic for Mr. Zardari and so any new position will not be free from considerable trouble for him.
