The Rise and Fall and Rebirth of Amitabh Bachchan

There are two kinds of people in this world: one who carries the stone to the mountain and the otherwho sees futility in carrying the stone to the mountain. They believe a mountain is already full of stones and there is no need to put another on it. Whenever anybody carries the stone to the peak of a mountain and stands on it, then the mountain blesses the person with its entire height. Such a person is Amitabh Bachchan.


Amitabh Bachchan was born on October 11, 1942, at Allahabad when the Aquarius ascendant (lagna) was on the rise on the eastern horizon along with Libra navamsa. The planetary configuration reads: Ketu - Aquarius, Saturn - Taurus, Jupiter - Cancer, Rahu - Leo, Sun, Mars, Mercury, Venus - Virgo and Moon in Libra.


The sign of Aquarius represents humanity and globalization. Most astrologers opine that all planets canvibe well with this sign if they are suitably placed. This sign also denotes perfection, and people born with it have the ability to rise to any occasion more often than not. He has Ketu in lagna which has blessed him with missionary zeal and a one-track mind to reach the top to attain whatsoever he has eyed. Saturn, the lord of lagna, is well placed in the fourth house which denotes strong family ties with peaceful environment which enables one to come out with the creative best. He has an exalted Jupiter in the sixth house which forms a Gajkesri yog with Moon. This yog is considered one of the best Rajyogs in the planetary hierarchy. A powerful Gajkesri yog is extremely capable of taking the native towards the zenith of his career.


There are four planets positioned in the eighth house which again form a great yog called Pravajra, a peculiar yog which invariably makes the person wander as non-identity at some stage of life. People with this yog are often faced with challenges in their life upto the point of provocation. The day this provocation sets in, then they have the motivation to move the entire world around them.


We are reminded that Osho Rajneesh also had more than five planets in the same house. One can draw a few parallels between these two: that both have had experienced a phenomenal rise in their lives, the kind of wealth that both amassed is unbelievable and Amitabh is suffering from a chronic disease as was Osho. It's interesting to note that Osho was born on December 11, 1931 carrying alike birth number 11 and destiny number 1, as of Bachchan.


11 a master number makes one have high aspirations and fortitude. Being in the limelight inspires. Public professions and dealing with masses directly and vigorously, using all available media of contacts and communication is apt. The innate magnetism of this birthdate makes the air hum. It is something intangible which is put across and it quivers and twangs like a sitar or an arrow. One is more apt to work in creative or inspirational fields, rather than in business. Tragedies may occur in one’s life but these shall only precipitate spiritual understanding.


Unreduced destiny number adds to 37; 3+7 = 1 is a good destiny number promising the triumph of long-term ambitions. One is known for powers of leadership, strong will, sovereign mind and initiative. Usually people with destiny number are idealistic, helpful, and invite attention. When they write they are original and very clear in expression. Gain through fortunate friendships and association with the opposite sex.


It is stirring to note that his link up with Bollywood Diva's like Rekha born on October 10, Zeenat Aman born on November 10, both are fate number 1 in sync with his destiny number 1 and Parveen Babi born on April 4, fate number 4 is sync with both his fate 2 and destiny 1.


His alliance with directors like Hrishikesh Mukherjee born September 30, 1932 (destiny number 8), Prakash Mehra born on July 13, 1939 (fate 4 and destiny 6), Yash Chopra born on September 27, 1932 (destiny number 6) and Manmohan Desai born on February 26, 1937 (fate number 8) toppled him with cult classic flicks of the Bollywood.


Sixteen years of a major phase of Jupiter was in operation from October, 1955, to October, 1971. Towards the fag end of Jupiter's major period around 1968, Amitabh entered films. The initial years of his career were immaterial and did not yield encouraging results.


A great deal of influence of number 7, 8 and 6 other than 1 and 2 is found in life of Amitabh Bachchan. We'll explore here...


He made his acting debut in 1969 (7) he was in his personal year 1, a year of opportunities and beginnings, time to take initiatives and start new endeavours wherein individuality and assertiveness brings good results (same as his destiny number) also in his 28th (1) year with Saat Hindustani adding to 44 (8), though the film was not a financial success, he won his first National Film Award for Best



In 1971 he was paired along with then Superstar Rajesh Khanna in Anand (16) in his 29th (2) year. The film was a major hit and made Amitabh Bachchan a noticeable name.


Many of his films during this early period did not do well, but that was about to change. In 1973 (2) hewas in his personal year 5, most fascinating and flattening year, it was Zanjeer (26) which established Amitabh in a new guise - the "Angry Young Man' of Bollywood cinema, breaking his dry spell at the box office and making him a star. Intriguingly he married Jaya born on April 9, 1948; a destiny number 8.


Saturn's influence began for the next 19 years from October, 1971, to October, 1990. Amitabh's film career was transformed from 1971 and, soon after, the saga of his success began with Zanjeer. Amitabh never looked back till the end of Saturn's phase - 1990. The entire period of Saturn saw him on the top, barring a small stint with politics which left a bad taste in the mouth.


Then there was no looking back with succeeding hits like Deewaar (24), Sholay, Kabhi Kabhie, HeraPheri... Amar Akbar Anthony (44) won him his first Filmfare Best Actor Award. In 1978 (7) he was in his personal year 1 and gave highest grossing films of that year like Don (16), Trishul (24), Muqaddar Ka Sikandar etc..

He was well-liked with his screen name Vijay adding to 10, same as his destiny number.


Suhaag, Mr. Natwarlal, Kaala Patthar, Naseeb, Silsila, Lawaaris, Namak Halaal and this phenomenoncontinued till 1982 (2) with Coolie (26), a huge it. During the major phase of Saturn and the sub phase of the Sun from October, 1981 to October 19, 1982, it was in this movie that he was critically injured and recovered after a long period. It is intriguing to note that accident took place on July 26 (8) but he got saved because it happened in year adding to 2...


Amitabh also had a short stint in politics between 1984 and 1988. He paid a heavy price for his proximity to the then prime minister, Rajiv Gandhi born on August 20, 1944 shares same fate 2 and destiny 1 with Bachchan, after he was dragged into the Bofors scandal. The sub period of Rahu coincided with the Bofors scandal as Rahu aspected in a major period of Saturn between June, 1985, and April, 1988. The configuration was responsible for a scandalous atmosphere and he had a slump at box-office too!


Certain planetary positions also made him almost a non-entity ridden with misery.


The major period of Mercury was from October 28, 1990 to October 2007. Right from the onset of Mercury's effect, Amitabh took time off from the arclights and started devoting himself to setting up a business empire which, however, did not click. Amitabh was isolated and there was nobody to rescue him from tribulations. Most people wrote him off. Mercury is exalted in the horoscope and involved in a yog. The yog is formed in the eighth house and has certain blemishes also because this house creates obstacles and frustrates the genuine efforts of the native on many occasions.


Notably, despite the lack of hits, it was during this period that Bachchan won his first National Film Award for Best Actor, in 1990 (1) for Agneepath (37). And in 1991 (2), he became the first artist to receive the Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award also gave a hit, Hum (15), but the momentum was short-lived.


Bachchan turned producer during his temporary retirement period, setting up A.B.C.L. in 1995 (6), he was in his personal year 9 which is culmination of 9 year cycle, a period of inner stocktaking and is advised not to venture in anything new and it was a flop show we all know.


In 1999 (1), Bachchan was voted the "greatest star of stage or screen" in a BBC


In astrology we believe if a planet is in a 'Rajyog' then it is duty bound to save the native from the clutches of bad luck and pave his way for success once again. Amitabh became a brand name and overcame all his earlier difficulties.


In 2000 (2) he was in his personal year 5, hosted popular game show Kaun Banega Crorepati adding to 64 (1) which was well received and he became the first living Asian to have been modeled in wax at London's Madame Tussauds. Bachchan was crowned as Superstar of the Millennium in the same year at the Filmfare Awards.


Then in 2005 (7) he was in his personal year 1 and gave critically applauded Black (11) and in 2009 (2), Paa (10). His performance was unanimously praised by critics and audiences and won many awards for his performances in both the flicks.


The period of Ketu which operated till October 2014 proved good requiring attention to his health. The on-going period of Venus (involved inRajyoga - debilitated planet in 8th house, Parashara exception) operating from October 2014 to 2034, will be fine, he’ll engage in social and charitable dispositions, versatility in acting, not approving in terms of health, overseas connect is ascertain and the legend will soar to new milestones.
