Mars, the “antardasa lord”, is placed in the 8th house which is the house of obstacles. Mars happens to be the lord of the 3rd house in his horoscope. 3rd house, as per Vedic astrology, refers to friends and associates. Friends and associates may bring disrepute to Amitabh during the running dasa of “Ketu / Mars”. Films released during this period may not do well on the box-office. However, the main area of concern may be his reputation.
In Vedic astrology, the 7th house of the horoscope is relevant for associations, partnerships, spouse and public reputation. The lord of the 7th house, in his horoscope, is Sun that happens to be placed in the 8th house. Sun also happens to be the “Atmakaraka” (placed in the highest degree of longitude) in his horoscope. However, Saturn is afflicting the “Atmakaraka” Sun in transit. Sun, in Vedic astrology, signifies government and government agencies. The current transit of Saturn is signifying action of Government agencies on him.
The problems are going to aggravate in the dasa to follow i.e., “Ketu / Rahu” which will start on him from 19th December 2009. Rahu placed in the 7th house may adversely affect his reputation. He may become a prey to political vendetta. The transit of Saturn from the eighth house and from over the “Atmakaraka” Sun signifies that health may be a matter of key concern for him in times to come especially in the year 2010. Things may be tough for wife Jaya Bachchan as well. However, formation of “Vipreet rajya yoga” (astrological combination showing gain amidst adversity) in the 8th house signifies that Amitabh will show a brave front and will fight with adversities.
The 8th house is also significant for past deeds and forgotten issues. It is likely that transit of Saturn from the 8th house may revive the old and forgotten issues which may become an additional source of concern and tension.
