Astrology on Cricket

Dr. Shanker Adawal (Jyotishaacharya, PHD, MBA)

  1. It is accepted by all astrologers and lovers of astrology that Mundane Astrology has been neglected and has not received its due alternation from the scholars of the Deviance Science. Be that as it may, and knowing that Mundance astrology is a difficult subject, and attempt is made on more principles as applicable to sports-astrology on cricket.
  2. To start with it is necessary to signify the planets responsible for Cricket – the moose popular out-door to play. Apart from being representative of the 'young (Kumar), the grassy-ground comes order its domain thought the sophisticating cutting of the grass and preparation of the ground for play gets to Mars and Venus. For a sportsman, Mars gives the necessary energy. The weather conditions have also to be looked and accordingly the sign of the Zodiac in which the configuration of planets takes place equally become important with reference to the dates of ply. The earthy signs and Airy sings are more important though dual signs become important though dual signs become important fro the 'Toss' to start with.
  3. in Mundane Astrology, the 5th house is the representative of all places of amusement, entertainment and pleasure. All out-door sports would be looked from the 5th house. This also becomes the source of excitement. This also becomes the source of excitement. This astrological principle is established in the case of Azharuddin, Capt. Of the Indian team World Cup, 1996. He has Sun, Saturn, Mercury and Ketu in the 5th house aspected by the Moon, Mars and Rahu. The Moon in own sign with Budda-Aditua Yoga gave the needed strength to the native. (DOB -08.02.1963, TOB- 10.25 PM, POB-Hyderabad) though we are discussing supports point of view, romantic rifts (divorce, separation etc.) including stress from the women cannot be rules out as 7th house is aspected by Saturn, 2nd house is aspected by Mars, 2nd Lord is hemmed by malefics and benefit, 12th Lord the Sun is under the grip of Saturn/Mars/R.K.
  4. For predicting the winner of any team the horoscopes of the country concerned, of the country concerned, of the Captain and of the country/Town where the match is playing become more important. It may be recalled that Rains in Pakistan on one of the scheduled day of play did not allow the match to be played.
  5. predication with regard to defeat of INDIA made on 24th February, 1996 Via Horary had come true on 2nd March, 1996 when India was defeated by Sri-Lanka. With regard to planetary transit of India's Horoscope (Taurua Lagna), the 5th house of sports occupied by Rahu in Virgo also speak of the victory to a foreign country. Weak Saturn with Ketu aspected the Lagna. Mars also aspected the Lagna Venus the Lagna Lord had no strength as it has just entered Aries (12th house on 01.03.1996). Ruing Nakshtra Pushaya and the week day Saturday also contributed to the defeat of India on 02.03.1996. without dwelling on the defeat of India, following observations are made:

1). It is not only the country's horoscope and that of the Captain that decides the winning of the match but also of all the Members of the team as members have equally an important role-to play.
2). the predictive notes should be made on the basis of possible planetary and horoscopes of the countries concerned. Be that as it may, horary chart and transit of planets at the place where match is being played to determine the fate of the Term concerned.
3). The horary prediction on 24th February, 1996 was made w2ith the help of COURT CHART i.e. with reference to Nakshtra. The natal Nakshtra and the transit Nakshtra of the day do determine the fate of the match.
4). Bad planetary position had given rise to various internal rifts including the order from the Government on the eve of Delhi Match that Kokla ground is unsafe and also bad-planetary position for the Match day. India lost to Sri-Lanka on 02.03.1996.

  1. The conception of the wills Cups for 1996 tool plan on 12th May, 1995 when the World Cup Cricket Organizing Committee formalized its agreement. Venus had entered Aries, Mars had no strength (entered Leo on 11.05.1995), the Sun had also weakened and so was the case with Saturn. Mercury was to conjunct with Retrograde Jupiter shortly. This also confirms that India and Pakistan, with weak Lagans in transit had no chance to win-rather the bad planetary position gave rise to 'Ominous start to Cup of Woes' on 12th Feb. 1996 at Calcutta.
  2. Few words about the planetary position on past matches. On 19.02.1995, Pakistan beat Zimbabwe (won series by 2-1) because of better strength of Sun, Saturn, Mercury and Venus though Mars (R) (Lagna Lord) was weak. On 22.11.1995 India defeated West India (Bombay) under captainship of Moh. Azhruddin because of very strong seventh house (5 planets). On 03.05.1995, Australia indicated a crushing defeat on West Indies because of Sagittarius and its Lord Jupiter/Retrograde) aspecting the Moon and Mercurry and also aspecting the Sun in exaltation sing. The 'draw' match on 28.08.1995 between England and West Indies is also proves astrologically. For England (Aries Lagna), the 6th house with Moon, Mars and Numerically become powerful and for West Indies the Lagna becomes powerful (rulling sign Virgo). Again 29.10.1995, there was 'draw' between India and Newzealand because powerful planetary position of India (Sun Venus in 6th house) and Mars and Jupiter in 7th house.
  3. from the above it is clear that apart from the country's horoscope, horoscope of the Captain, planets in transit have and important say for the winner or loser. Similarly, other circumstances including of weather cannot be ignored.
