Major roadblocks ahead for Mayawati

Bahujan Samaj Party leader Mayawati may see an upturn in her political fortunes, but that may not be sufficient to regain control of Uttar Pradesh.

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati rose high in Uttar Pradesh politics on the agenda of ending caste-based discrimination and creating a truly equal society. However, in the last two Assembly elections, she seems to have lost the confidence of the masses with BSP not doing well both the times. Can she revive her fortunes and rise again in the time to come?

Hard Efforts To Regain Popularity Foreseen

Mayawati is currently under the influence of Mercury mahadasha and Mercury bhukti. These planetary positions may help her instill confidence among the different sections of society as she tries to win their support. She will use all her efforts to regain her popularity over her core constituency as well as voters belonging to other communities.

BSP-SP Alliance May Damage BJP’s Prospects

Also, transiting Jupiter is moving in her favour and aspecting the natal Venus. This shows that her energy to reconstruct the fallen fortunes of her party will become more intense and powerful. At the same time, she will be able to get along with like-minded parties and defeat her opponents. There is the likelihood of an alliance with the Samajwadi Party (SP) against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Thus, Mayawati may turn into an important leader not just in UP, but in national politics as well.

BSP May Witness Internal Squabbles

However, her efforts towards success may hit roadblocks after May 3, 2018. Mars-Ketu conjunction will make her path difficult. There may be internal disputes in her party, which may divert her attention from UP state and national politics. The phase between July 2018 and September 2018 will be difficult for the BSP.

More Struggle And Maturity Foreseen

Mayawati may face obstacles in her activities. She will have to work harder than usual and make more efforts. Further, Ketu’s transit over the Sun in the ascendant house can cause health problems. Her popularity, esteem and reputation may also decrease. Ketu’s transit over the Moon might increase her mental discomfort, while Ketu’s transit over Mercury will bring maturity in her thoughts but also cause some delusions.

Her Credibility Will See An Upturn

Jupiter is transiting in Libra and through the tenth house from the Sun and the Moon. Additionally, Jupiter’s fifth aspect is on the yogakarak Venus. Hence, Mayawati will be able to progress despite several difficulties in 2018. Besides, from May 2, 2018 to November 6, 2018, the combination of Mars and Ketu in Capricorn may create a very difficult situation in the political field. But after October 12, 2018, Jupiter will enter Scorpio, at which point Mayawati’s credibility and prestige will increase in public life.

Regaining Power In UP Will Require Herculean Efforts

Though she will be a major force for rival parties, Mayawati may not get total success in her efforts. There are also chances of a split in her party, especially after November 2018, which may damage BSP’s political prospects. Transiting Saturn also shows that Mayawati’s efforts to regain power in UP will face serious obstacles.
