Some called him the living God, the others called him incarnation of divine and some choose to stay neutral or disbelieve the greatness of Sathya Sai Baba. I always believe that a man who has left so many people discussing was no ordinary man. Sathya Sai Baba was born on 23/11/1926 at Puttaparthy (Andhra Pradesh) in India.
There are two times of birth for Sathya Sai Baba on the websites I usually consult. The first one says it is 6:00 AM and the second one says 6:22 AM. Ascendant remains the same in either case. I will go with 6:22 AM. A religious guru both famous and controversial, Sathya Sai baba’s horoscope is worth discussion.
Why a Spiritual Leader or Religious Guru?
There are two aspects that surprise me in this horoscope: - Debilitated Jupiter in the third house aspects the ninth house and Mars from the sixth house aspects ninth house. Shouldn’t the Jupiter of a spiritual leader be in strong position? Moreover, Jupiter is under the aspect of Saturn from the ascendant, which in turn is in the sign of Mars under the aspect of Mars. Hence, Jupiter gets the aspect of Mars afflicted Saturn.
Scorpio ascendant with Saturn, Mercury, Sun and Venus is something very interesting. Moon with Rahu is yet another interesting combination. If this horoscope of correct, Sathya Sai Baba was more than just a spiritual leader.
“Critics have accused him of fraud and sexual abuse, allegations he has denied” (1)
“Mr. Premanand says that there are many Indians who also claim to have been abused but are too afraid to speak out”. (2)
“Rumours about Sai Baba sexually abusing young male devotees have been circulating for years”. (2)
Despite all, Sathya Sai Baba had noteworthy people in his list of followers including Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Narendra Modi, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Aishwarya Rai, Sachin Tendulkar, Anup Jalota, Sunil Gavaskar, Gundappa Vishwanath and many others. (3)
What Happened in June 1993?
“Most revealing, perhaps, was the massive bribes Sai Baba sent to about 30 family members and insider residents, as witnessed and testified by Eileen Weed, who was living in the rooms of SB's eldest sister at the time”. (4)
June 1993 was the month that the devotees of Sathya Sai Baba would never forget. It is said that Sai Baba was about to be attacked by four devotees in his apartment itself. Sathya Sai baba managed to escape somehow to raise the alarm but his attendants who tried to defend were either killed or injured.
It was exactly 6th June, 1993 when this incident happened. It was Ve/Ma/Ju period during that time. Both the Marakas were active but then how did Sai Baba escape the evil? Was it because of strong sub period of ascendant lord or if the transits could explain the situation better. Was it actually the story that we know or there was something else? Rahu was transiting over the ascendant during that time increasing only confusions for the general public.
Death – 24/4/2011, Puttaparthy
Sathya Sai Baba died on 24th April, 2011, 7:40 IST at his birthplace.
Periods during that time
Transits that day:-
· Mars Venus Mercury and Jupiter in Pisces
· Moon in Capricorn
· Rahu/Ketu in Sagittarius/Gemini
· Sun in Aries
· Saturn in Virgo
Combinations for death are apparent this day. It seems as if this was the time when Sathya Sai Baba was born. I will however make no efforts in getting the correct birth time as this is a troublesome job taking lot of time and effort still no guarantee of getting accurate time of birth.
Despite what all has been said about the miracles and miraculous healings that Sathya Sai Baba conducted, the work that Sathya Sai Organizations have done is appreciable. Free super specialty hospital, project to provide drinking water to the drought prone area, Sathya Sai schools and other charitable institutions is no small job.

ज्योतिष सदा से ही मेरा प्रिय विषय रहा है. अपने अभी तक के जीवन में मुझे इस क्षेत्र से जुड़े बहुत से लोगों के विचार जानने का अवसर मिला. सौभाग्यवश ऐसे भी कई लोगों से मिला जिन्हें इस क्षेत्र में विश्वास ही नहीं था. फ्यूचरपॉइंट संस्था (दिल्ली) से भी बहुत कुछ सीखा और अपने पिताजी से तो अभी भी यदा कदा सीखते ही रहता हूँ. ज्योतिष अच्छा तो बहुत है परंतु इसमें भ्रांतियां भी उतनी ही फैली हुई हैं जिस कारण कभी कभी बड़ा दुःख होता है. नौकरी के चलते ज्योतिष में समय देना थोड़ा कठिन हो जाता है अतः ईश्वर की प्रेरणा से अपने विचारों को प्रकट करने के लिए और इनसे किसी का कुछ भी भला हो सके इसी हेतु लेख लिखा करता हूँ.
