is the scion of the famous Bachchan family of India. This family
name needs no introduction. Abhishek is the only son of
Bollywood Superstar Amitabh Bachchan and one of the finest
actresses of our time Jaya Bhaduri (Bachchan). His grandfather
Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan was a famous poet of Hindi and Urdu
literature. Abhishek Bachchan is carrying on the legacy of this
name now. In fact, he is the perfect person to shine like his
grandfather and parents. Comparisons are inevitable. The son of
famous parents Amitabh and Jaya has definitely inherited some
aspects from his parents. He has been blessed with the extremely
good upbringing of his parents. He has also inherited the same
impeccable manners and demeanor of the Bachchan family. He has
inherited both his parents’ qualities. Abhishek is quiet,
composed, tall, handsome, having the same baritone voice and
rather reserved nature of his father Amitabh Bachchan. On the
other hand, he has inherited the quality of speaking his mind
from his mother Jaya Bachchan. In fact, one other major trait,
which he has inherited from his father, is his exquisite humour,
which is unmistakable in his films.
Until cupid struck, Abhishek was the most eligible bachelor in
India. He and Aishwarya fell in love and their romance blossomed
into their forthcoming marriage.
Let us now look at Abhishek’s Horoscope and the forthcoming
prospects for Year 2007 which are indicated by the placement of
planets in his horoscope.
There is a difference of opinion about Abhishek’s time of birth
as per astrologers. There are 2-3 birth times floated around. I
have taken the below Natal Chart details, as the same have been
used by quite a few astrologers.

Abhishek was born on 5th of February, 1976 at Bombay. At the
time of his birth Libra Ascendant was rising on the eastern
horizon. He was born under the Revathi Nakshatra in Pisces Sign
or Rashi. Ascendant plays a very important part in a horoscope.
Ascendant /Rising Sign or Lagna is the physical aspect of one’s
self or the portrayal to the people around us.
Being a Libra Ascendant makes Abhishek pleasing and harmonious.
By virtue of this ascendant, Abhishek has been blessed with
natural charm, grace, poise and impeccable manners. Libra
ascendant people look forward to the future and are not bogged
down by the setbacks in life. These traits are fully epitomized
by Abhishek. By virtue of being a Libra Ascendant he has got a
great sense of fairness and justice. Libra Ascendant people are
refined, full of poise. They may seem to be a bit aloof at
times, which is hard to pin down by other mortals. Being a Libra
Ascendant makes Abhishek gravitate towards artisitic and
creative pursuits and that explains his foray in movies. These
people don’t have to seek the spotlight and stardom - it shines
on them. Luck often comes to Libra Ascendants by virtue of a
partner, spouse, lover or a close associate. It’d be pertinent
to mention that his spouse Aishwarya may bring him more luck in
the coming years. He likes traveling, getting into new projects.
However, there is one problem with Libra Ascendants - they don’t
have much perseverance, which sometimes leads to many unfinished
projects. Libra Ascendants more often than not gain wealth
through a marriage partner. The influence of Planet Venus which
is the Lord of Abhishek’s Ascendant is bestowing him with charm,
elegance, social grace, romantic nature, appreciation for art,
music, cinema etc, but at the same time it may also give him
jealousy, laziness, dependence on others as well.
In Abhishek’s horoscope, Ascendant and 8th house Lord Venus is
placed in 3rd house in Sagittarius sign. He is active, wealthy,
wise, famous and happy. However, this placement indicates that
Abhishek’s mind may waver sometimes. This placement sometimes
gives more than one romantic association. We all know Abhishek
was associated with Karishma Kapoor earlier before meeting
Aishwarya Rai. This placement also makes Abhishek religious,
charitable and daring in approach. He will enhance his fortune
by his own efforts and labour. His chart indicates frequent
traveling to foreign countries and success from such traveling.
Venus in 3rd house makes him very passionate. This combination
gives chances of an inter-caste marriage. Venus in 3rd house
makes a person indecisive in approach and this person needs some
support from near and dear ones to make a correct decision in
vital matters. Venus in 3rd house makes Abhishek loyal to his
spouse, but chances are that he may some times not get the same
affection in return. In Abhishek’s chart, Venus which is placed
in 3rd house is aspected by naturally malefic planet Mars.
According to ancient classic ‘Brihat Parasar Hora Shastra’ Mars
is considered as a malefic planet for Libra ascendant.
Therefore, it may create a few obstacles in Abhishek’s career
and his success. In ‘Navamansa’ Chart, Venus is posited in 12th
house in Virgo sign which is the sign of debilitation. This
indicates Abhishek will get success with a little help and
support from his close associates and well-wishers in the
initial phase of his career. Placement of Planet Venus at an
angle to Planet Jupiter is creating a ‘Rajyoga’, which signifies
wealth, a good, beautiful & virtuous spouse and children, fame,
good character, and faith in spiritualism & religious rites.
In Abhishek’s Horoscope all quadrants or Kendra houses are
occupied by planets namely Rahu in Ascendant or Lagna, Sun and
Mercury in 4th house, Ketu in 7th house and Saturn in 10th
house. This placement of planets in quadrants is giving rise to
a very special Raj yoga which is called ‘ Chatussagara Yoga’.
According to astrological classics ‘Chatussagara Yoga’ will
confer and bestow the person with good reputation, he/she will
be equal to a ruler, have a long and prosperous life, be blessed
with good children and health and his/her name will travel to
the confines of the four oceans. To explain it further, planets
placed in kendras or quadrants add great strength to the
horoscope. The four angles in a horoscope are like the four
walls of a building and the strong walls are very important for
a strong building. This is one main reason that in spite of not
tasting the fruits of success initially Abhishek was never down
and disheartened and bounced back strongly and now every one
knows about his success in the film industry.
Abhishek’s horoscope has quite a few Rajyogas. The mutual aspect
of Mercury Lord of 9th and 12th house and Saturn which is Lord
of 4th and 5th houses is excellent. According to ancient
astrological classics, Saturn and Mercury are known as
favourable and significator planets for Libra ascendant.
Placement of Mercury in 4th house along with Sun is giving
‘Surya Budha Yoga’. According to ancient classical texts this
yoga means a person born under the influence of this Yoga is
polite, intelligent, learned, honest, wealthy, proficient in all
works and reputed. Although placement of Mercury in Capricorn
Sign is not a good placement, even then it will give good
results as Saturn and Mercury are placed at an angle to each
other and have a mutual aspect. Similarly if we see the
placement of Saturn, we will see that placement of Saturn in
Cancer sign is not a good placement, but due to Saturn and
Mercury being placed at an angle to each other and having a
mutual aspect, it is giving good results. Moreover Saturn in
Abhishek’s horoscope is a Yogkaraka planet and is making him
worldly wise and shrewd.
Abhishek’s horoscope is good from all aspects. However,
placement of Saturn at an angle to the Sun and their mutual
aspects may give unexpected obstacles and hindrances in his
life. He’d have to put in his best efforts and overcome the
obstacles in his life. Similarly, placement of Rahu in Ascendant
is not very good. It will give rise to a few controversies in
his life. Placement of Rahu in Ascendant may give him failure in
attempts and unnecessary confusion in decision-making, therefore
he may be in need of someone who is close to him encouraging him
all the time. Here it’d be pertinent to say that the placement
of Saturn in 10th house sometimes works as a double-edged sword.
On one hand, it is capable of providing worldwide fame, respect,
accumulation of wealth, while on the other hand, it is also
capable of giving loss of wealth, inviting the wrath of the
government, resulting in loss in dealings /business /profession
and uncalled for expenditures. Hence there is a great need for
Abhishek to be careful.
In Abhishek’s horoscope, Lord of the 6th house, Jupiter, is
placed in 6th house which is forming ‘Viparita Harsha Yoga’.
According to ancient classical Phal Deepika if the 6th lord is
in the 6th, 8th or the 12th house it forms ‘Viparita Harsha
Yoga’. According to this classical text, ‘A person born in this
Yoga will enjoy health, fame and happiness in life. He/she’d be
victorious over enemies. Placement of 9th lord Mercury and 11th
lord Sun in the same house is creating a ‘Dhana Yoga’. There is
a relationship between the 9th house lord on one hand and the
11th lord on the other hand. A person born in this yoga will
always enjoy great wealth in life.
Placement of Jupiter and Moon in the 6th house is also creating
a very strong Rajyoga which is famously known as “Gajakesari
Yoga’. When Moon and Jupiter are placed in the centre to each
other i.e. Moon is placed along with Jupiter or in 4th, 7th or
10th house from Jupiter then this placement is known as
‘Gajakesari Yoga’ . This Yoga alone is more potent than many
Rajyogas. It is also one of the Pancha Mahapursha Yogas. This
yoga will give Abhishek a lot of success in life and enhance his
career, give him victory over enemies, and bestow him with
wealth and worldwide fame in life.
In Abhishek’s horoscope, Mars, which is Lord of 2nd and 7th
houses is placed in 8th house in Taurus sign. Placement of Mars
in Taurus sign is not a very good placement. In Navamansa Chart
also Mars is not placed well. It is placed in Cancer sign, which
is a sign of debilitation. However, Mars in 8th house gives a
good capacity to rule the peoples’ heart and we all know
Abhishek is at present ruling the hearts of millions with his
extraordinary performance in movies.
Let me now
discuss Abhishek’s Career & Married life along with his
prospects for year 2007.
Career of Abhishek
In Abhishek’s chart, Cancer Sign or Rashi is placed in his 10th
house. Lord of 10th house Moon is placed in 6th house along with
Jupiter, creating one of the most powerful Rajyogas known as
‘Gajakesari Rajyoga’. In his chart, Moon is neither aspected nor
conjoined by any malefic planet. This in itself is a very good
placement and indicates Abhishek will have a tremendous growth
in his career.
Abhishek’s debut movie ‘Refugee’ was released on 30th of June
2000, when he was under the influence of Dasha-Bhukti-Antra of
Venus-Rahu-Venus. As discussed earlier in the ‘Navamansa’ Chart,
Venus is posited in 12th house in Virgo sign which is the sign
of debilitation, so Abhishek may not get the full results
associated with Planet Venus. The movie Refugee was not a hit,
but his work was appreciated and he was also nominated for
Filmfare’s best newcomer award for his role in this film. As
discussed earlier, Rahu is not favourable for Abhishek and the
film’s release was in the Bhukti of Rahu. That was one of the
main reasons for the film not doing well. The period starting
from June 1998 to June 2001 was the period in which Bhukti of
Rahu was in operation. This period coincided with quite a few
movies of Abhishek, which were not successful.
His first real movie which was appreciated and for which he also
got Filmfare’s Best Supporting Actor’s award was ‘Yuva’, which
was released in May 2004. This movie was released when he was
under the influence of Dasha-Bhukti-Antra of
Venus-Saturn-Saturn. Saturn is a Yogkaraka planet in Abhishek’s
chart and moreover Saturn and Mercury are placed at an angle to
each other, creating a mutual aspect, and the same is giving
good results. His acting and work was first noticed in this
He has been under the influence of Bhukti of Saturn from
February 2004 to April 2007. This period is a successful period
for him. He got name and fame in this period. His acting was
well-appreciated in this period only. Due to yogkaraka Saturn’s
influence, his acting was appreciated not only in India but
outside India also. During this period, quite a few of his good
movies were released. These include Dhoom-I (Released: 27th
August 2004), Bunty and Babli (Released: 27th May 2005), Sarkar
(Released: 1st July 2005), Dus (Released: 8th July 2005), Bluff
master (Released: 16th December 2005), Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna
(Released: 11th August 2006), Umarao Jaan (Released: 3rd
November 2006), Dhoom 2 (Released: 24th November 2006) and the
very popular ‘Guru’ (Released: 12th Jan 2007).
Abhishek will be under the influence of Bhukti of Mercury in
main Dasha of Venus from April 2007 to February 2010. Mercury is
Lord of 9th and 12th houses in Abhishek’s horoscope and is
placed in 4th house. Here it’d be pertinent to mention that
Mercury is being aspected by Yoga Karaka Saturn. As mentioned
earlier, placement of Mercury in 4th house along with Sun is
giving ‘Surya Budha Yoga’, which is very good for success in
life. This period indicates good professional success for him.
His acting will only get better day by day and there are
indications of his getting more awards and accolades.
Married life of Abhishek
According to Vedic Indian astrology, 7th house and its Lord tell
about marriage and spouse-related matters. Venus and Jupiter are
known as natural karakas of marriage-related issues. In
Abhishek’s Chart there is Aries Sign in 7th house. Lord of 7th
house Mars is placed in 8th house in Taurus Sign. Placement of
Mars in Taurus sign is not a very good placement. In Navamansa
Chart, Mars is placed in 10th house along with Sun and is
aspected by Mercury. In Natal Chart, 7th house is aspected by
Yoga Karaka Saturn. In Navamansa Chart, Jupiter is occupying 5th
house being Atmakaraka and retrograde Saturn is occupying 7th to
Atmakaraka Jupiter. Due to these combinations, Abhishek’s spouse
will be older than him. According to Moon Chart, Virgo Sign is
occupying the 7th house and its Lord Mercury is placed in the
4th house, being Yoga Karaka planet and aspected by another yoga
karaka planet Saturn. This indicates his spouse will belong to a
good cultured family. He will enjoy all worldly comforts and
enjoy the fruits of success along with his spouse. Placement of
7th Lord Mars in 8th is not very favourable. Placement of Mars
in Taurus sign is not a very good placement. In Navamansa Chart
also, Mars is not well placed; it is placed in Cancer sign,
which is its sign of debilitation. It indicates, that a few
times, his thoughts and views won’t match with his spouse. There
are indications of a few disputes and arguments with his spouse.
The fact that both Abhishek and Aishwarya are fiercely
independent personalities is not helping either. So Abhishek
needs to be careful in his marital affairs and take care not to
press too hard in marital matters or else there are indications
of bickering and tensions in his married life.
Prospects in Year 2007
At present, Abhishek is undergoing the Dasha-Bhukti-Antra of
Venus-Mercury-Mercury which will end on August 31st 2007. As
discussed earlier, in his chart, Mercury is being aspected by
Yoga Karaka Saturn and its placement in 4th house along with Sun
is giving ‘Surya Budha Yoga’, which is very good for success in
life. This period indicates good professional success for him
and career advancements. This period also indicates frequent
traveling and increase in name and fame for him. There are also
indications of marital happiness for him. His relationship with
Aishwarya after marriage will be good and they will be able to
fully enjoy their marital bliss in this period. His movies
should also do well in this particular period. During this
April, Ascendant Lord Venus and 7th Lord Mars will transit at an
angle to each other, transiting Saturn will have its aspect on
7th house and Jupiter will be aspecting on ascendant Lord Venus.
All these transits are auspicious for Abhishek’s marriage in
April. He will achieve success and gains in new ventures/movies
during this period. So we can expect his movies to do well at
the box office.
From August 31st 2007 to October 31st 2007, Abhishek will be
under the influence of Dasha-Bhukti-Antra of Venus-Mercury-Ketu.
In his natal chart, Ketu is placed in 7th house in Yoga Karaka’s
Venus Nakshatra. In this period, he will get vitality, gain
fame, wealth, interact with rich and famous people. This period
is very auspicious for his name and fame and there are
indications that he will get success in his ventures and
popularity in filmdom. There is also the likelihood of his
movies getting popular and running successfully all over. This
period also indicates his tilt towards spiritualism and towards
religious activities with his spouse Aishwarya.
During the month of September and October 2007, Ascendant Lord
Venus will transit over 10th and 11th houses. It will also make
a favourable association along with Yoga Karaka Saturn. By
virtue of this, during these months he will reap good benefits.
Sudden and unexpected windfall gains are quite possible out of
From October 31st 2007 to April 17th 2008, Abhishek will be
under the influence of Dasha-Bhukti-Antra of
Venus-Mercury-Venus. Venus is occupying 3rd house in its own
Nakshatra. During this period, there are indications that he may
travel frequently for personal as well as professional reasons.
This period also indicates that he will indulge in purchasing of
luxurious goods like vehicle, property etc. His married life
will also be satisfactory during this period as there are ample
indications that he may travel with his spouse Aishwarya in this
According to the Moon Chart, Transit of Jupiter over the 10th
and transit of Saturn over the 6th house is going to be very
auspicious for Abhishek. By virtue of this he may achieve
happiness, gains in wealth and career, have successful journeys,
increase in intelligence, have popularity all around, enjoy the
comforts of home and be popular in social circle etc. In a
nutshell this period is also going to be a good one for him.
