What are the chief traits of a good political leader?

Political Career

Certain chief traits of a good political leader determine his longevity as a politician. A good political leader, and a good statesman, start at the same point of politics but go in parallel directions, in different marathons, where they never meet in purpose or goal. They end up at their chosen destinations that may be good for them or the country. 

An ideal politician should have, in a good percentage, a combination of statesmanship, higher discipline, courage, humanity, and an astute mind. He should be a super leader who can take correct decisions at the nick of the moment, show an undying zeal to work relentlessly for the sake of his country, and capabilities to get into the depth of any matter and implement a most plausible solution. A good political leader would firstly consider himself as a servant of people and work in the direction of growth of the country, in all its aspects.

Politics is the most widely sought-after field of business today. Many youngsters with a dream and a vision plunge into its enormities without thinking about the consequences and challenges. A few knowing youngsters rise to places of eminence. This field is not about glamour or glitz or Planetary combinations that is advantageous till the end. 

Politics is an international business and a field-tested and tried by those capable of strategizing and creating history. A wrong move from a politician would change the course of history in gigantic proportions, but it would put a country on a higher ranking, with a pertinent decision. People naturally love politics as it gives you such a huge share of fame, respect, power, wealth, and money. But there is a price you pay for it. Not everyone can be successful in this field. 

Before you leap into this field, it is important to know whether you will succeed or fail in it. Considering the services of an expert vedic astrologer would be of immense help. 

Look for personality traits like communication, maturity, dominance, oratory, courage, leadership, diplomacy that are important to succeed in politics. These are the chief traits of successful political leaders.

Raja yoga is formed when the Kendra and trikona lords are mutually conjoined or in a mutual aspect. If Lagna lord and the 2nd, or 5th, or 9th or 11th lord are in some association, this forms Dhana yoga and the person will be wealthy. The Jupiter and Moon mutually conjunct, in square or opposition, form Gajkesari yoga.

Sun and Mercury’s mutual conjunction in the same house comes to be known as Budhadhitya Yoga. The person is of a scholarly caliber, a repository of virtues, a well-versed person with great self-control, and earns wealth through service. They are highly intelligent and skilled in all important arts. The placement of very strong Mercury in the 10th house from Lagna without malefic aspect shows that the person will be internationally famous. It is termed as karmajiva yoga. When two planets occupy each other’s houses, it is Parivartan yoga. When the lords of two signs mutually exchange their positions, it indicates Parivartan. The horoscope of Indira Gandhi had Parivartan yoga. 

When one planet (A) occupies the nakshatra of another planet(B), and the other planet (B) occupies the nakshatra of the former (A), this exchange of nakshatras would be usually called nakshatra Parivartan yoga. when the Moon and Mars are conjoined together or in a mutual aspect, it forms Chandra Mangala yoga, making the native a master manipulator. Mahabhagya yoga is found when a male child is born during the day when the Sun, moon, and Lagna are found to be in odd signs. In the case of females, the Sun, moon, and Lagna should be in even signs, and the birth should have happened at night. Mars (Ruchak Yoga), Mercury (Bhadra Yoga), Jupiter (Hansa Yoga), Venus (Malavya Yoga) Saturn (Shasha Yoga) are the Pancha mahapurusha yogas.
