Chart No. 34: Annual Chart For 45th year of J.L. Nehru 1933-34

Cn 40

Venus is the lord of Varsh-lagna, Lord of the year and Karaka of wife. The strength of Venus is only moderate. Venus is associated with 2-7th lord Mars in 3rd house in Paapkartari between Sun & Saturn. Moon & Saturn are in inimical aspect and in Ithasala. Muntha though in 9th house, is aspected by Mars and Rahu. The native lost his wife in Mar 1934.

c) Weak/ afflicted Venus: The native suffers from mental agony & anxiety, obstacles in profession, failure in undertakings, and quarrels with wife & children throughout the year. One may lose business or service, conjugal unhappiness and fear from low caste women.

7. Saturn as Lord of the year
a) In Full Strength: It indicates Success in litigation & election, leadership among own clan, longevity, health & happiness, ability for hard work & concentration of mind, acquisition of old house, land or property, gains from low caste people or foreigners.

b) Of Medium Strength: It reduces the above results to a great extent and makes the life of the native miserable & degraded, suffers from anguish & body ache, loss of fame & wealth, gives association with low caste people and increase of opponents.

c) Weak/ afflicted Saturn: It indicates poverty, mental anguish, disgrace, depression, diseases & sorrows, windy ailments, loss of some near or dear one, financial losses, failure in all ventures, enmity with own people, fear from foes and general deprivation.

Note: The above results are fairly general in nature. They are further modified by various factors such as location of the year lord in annual & birth chart, the influence of other planets, Muntha & Muntha lord on the year lord, involvement of year lord in various yogas specially Tajika yogas etc. However one thing is certain that if the lagna lord of birth & annual chart, and Muntha & its lord are strong and well placed in Kendra/ Trikone houses, the year will pass with peace & happiness. When lord of the year is in any of the houses 6, 8 or 12 and 10th lord of the annual chart is weak, the year proves very inauspicious.
