Time of Birth: 12:15:41

Place of Birth: Cuttack, Odisha

Moon Sign: Virgo

In the Kundli of Netaji, the Lagna is Mesha, which makes him an aggressive warrior. Jupiter in the 5th house, Sun and Mercury in the 10th, Venus in the 11th, and Mars in the 2nd house. Such a favorable placement of planets makes him a person with great Raja yogas. However, Saturn is in the 8th house of death. And many astrologers believe that it became the reason for his untimely death.

  • Sun in the Capricorn zodiac sign in his horoscope gave him braininess and good morals. As per the birth chart of Subhas Chandra Bose, this lord of the 12th house in the 5th one also provided his short temper and aggressive nature. 
  • Looking at Mars is in the Taurus sign. On one hand, this placement was harmful to his father. However, on the other hand, it gave Netaji his strong attitude and mindfulness to make decisions without relying on anybody. 
  • Looking at planet Mercury in the horoscope of Netaji, you shall see its conjunction with the Sun. Moreover, the lord of the 10th and 1st house in the 5th illustrates his successful career, learning abilities, good education, and focus toward his goal. It also indicates the respect he earned with this placement of planets. 
  • One of the most noteworthy placements in his horoscope is the placement of Jupiter. It is the Leo sign and the 12th house. The lord of the 4th and 7th house in the 12th one marks an unfavorable placement. Even though it indicates a liberal nature, it shows a non-peaceful life with many ups and downs. However, his liberal demeanor will bring him to history, and we can easily see that with the work of Netaji. 
  • Venus in Aquarius and Saturn in Scorpio zodiac sign made him popular, helpful to others, and peace-loving. But, on the other hand, it also made him a favorite target of enemies, violent in thoughts, over-practical, and a poor-eyesight person. 
  • As for Rahu, Ketu and Moon. They gave mixed results to Netaji all his life. Rahu in Capricorn, Ketu in Cancer, and Moon in Virgo made him people’s favorite, but on the other hand, isolated and self-centered being.
