Shri Mataji's Astrology ChartNirmala Yoga Magazine, Jan-Feb 1981
The Paraclete Shri Mataji "MATAJI was born at Nagpur at 12.09 p.m., I.S.T. (noon time) on 21st March 1923. At this moment, taking into consideration the local time of Nagpur, the Sun was exactly on the Meridian in full glory, and being in the zero degree of Aries or the 30th degree of Pisces, the Sun in that position made a Rajayoga (i.e. an aspect for leadership and prominence in life), which has endowed her with the Sun's glamour and power.
Her rising sign is Cancer and the Ascendent is in the 8th degree. The Ascendant in Cancer makes her a Mother of the Universe, a Jaganmata, as the Ascendant is strongly aspected by five planets, Jupiter, Mercury, Uranus, Mars and the Moon, while it is occupied by Pluto, which itself forms grand trines with three of the five planets and sextiles with the other two. Her spiritual powers arise mainly from this combination of aspects in the angles of the chart, also, the position of the planet of spiritual life viz. Neptune in the second house indicates that her wealth accumulation is spiritual. It is interesting to note that the current position of Neptune in the transit is near the cusp of the sixth house. This shows that her main work in the years to come will be solely in this field.
The Lord of the Ascendant Moon, is exalted in Taurus strongly posited in the 11th house, conjunct Mars, which is Lakshmi-Yoga and invest her with divinity. She is thus the incarnation of Mahalaxmi. She is destined to live richly like a Goddess. Her aristocratic origin is further indicated by the exalted Saturn in the 4th house, who being the lord of the 7th house (Capricorn) has brought her into matrimonial union with an eminent official. This same Saturn makes for vairagya, i.e. distaste for worldly life and renunciation.
Jupiter strongly aspected in the 5th house, makes her a Mother- Teacher and as he is trined by three powerful planets and squared by two and opposed by two, Mataji will have a most eventful life as a World Teacher. It will all bring a great renown, an enormous following all over the world, a lot of conflict with evil.
Saturn, strong in the 4th house, gives much longevity, great distinction towards the end of life, a lot of power both spiritual and temporal, although it inclines her to some solitude also in old age.
International fame is indicated by the presence of a strong Uranus in the 9th house, trined by Jupiter, Pluto and sextiled by Mars and Moon. Also, the Mercury-Uranus conjunction gives Mataji great eloquence and invincibility as a debater.
The T-square formations between Moon, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune indicate that some of the plans of Mataji might be hindered by obstructive activities of evil and negative forces. Also Mataji might have to steer through conflicting loyalties and aims of some of her so-called followers who are enemies in disguise. But despite all this, she will find her way to the goal of her life, viz., universal Self-Realisation!
Altogether, a great and powerful chart of a truly Divine personality."
