Smriti Irani has seen it all. From being one of the finalists  in a Miss India pageant, to playing the extremely popular role of Tulsi Virani in the hit daily soap — Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi and winning five consecutive Indian Television Academy Awards — her journey towards mainstream politics has seen quite a few twists.

Forward to today, Irani as minister for human resources development is widely in the news. Almost on a daily basis, we get to hear about a new speech she has made while defending the government’s stand and read about the various changes she plans to bring about as the head of the HRD ministry. But what do the stars indicate about the minister who doesn’t hesitate calling a spade a spade? Let’s find out with the help of Ganesha’s exclusive analysis...


Smriti and the Stars....

Smriti Irani will be under the mixed influences of transiting stars. On one hand, Jupiter will keep creating great opportunities for her, blessing her with the capability and wisdom to take effective measures in her ministry.

She cannot afford to be complacent in the coming times as there will be several situations that’ll demand her immediate attention and skill. Also, her policies will come under Opposition scrutiny on many occasions, but she’ll continue putting in considerable effort.

Ganesha, however, observes there are a lot of positive combinations present in her Chart so, she will ultimately be able to come up with solutions to a lot of problems.


Ganesha advises her to stay very alert while making statements to the media during public interactions. The transit of Ketu over her Mercury and Venus could put considerable pressure on her during communication. But strangely, due to the very same combination present in her Solar Chart, she will make for a very effective communicator as well as a strong orator, despite the transiting Ketu trying to create a lot of mischief for her. There is a high possibility her statements will be misinterpreted giving rise to controversies.

Ganesha also feels confident the HRD ministry is in very safe hands and that Smriti will be able to initiate path-breaking and memorable changes within the country’s education sector.


She will also be the one to watch out for in the coming months, says Ganesh. With that trademark grit and determination — which brought her to the position she maintains now —  Irani may soon emerge as a stronger player in the Modi-led Government.

Her position may be further strengthened after August of this year, when the transiting Jupiter enters the Sign of Virgo aspecting her Natal Sun. As commonly known, the Sun happens to be the indicator of fame, influence, power, position and honour. So this fiery minister may be in for some bright times and opportunities in the aforementioned areas. But it’s still a mixed bag, considering the keenness with which some will be observing her.


The period between August 2016 and January of 2017 may turn out to be a period of some unforeseen problems for her. Ganesha also feels that she might land in some controversy within the aforesaid period, as the protective influence of Jupiter on her Natal Venus and Mercury will then be missing.
